A Gleeful Surprise (Friday Favourites)

8 Feb

Despite having a crazy record-breaking snow storm in Toronto today, the weather hasn’t kept my spirits down. I am so excited about today’s Friday Favourites!!!

For the past few months I’ve been working with an amazing foundation called ‘The Sunshine Foundation.’ They work to fulfill dreams of children in Canada living with a permanent disability.

When I first contacted them, my initial dream was to fly out to LA to go meet Ellen Degeneres. Unfortunately after contacting back-and-forth we figured out that due to high demand the dream to meet Ellen would be quite hard and a lengthy process. So I decided to make another dream. My second dream was either to go to the set of ‘Glee’ and meet the cast or have the chance to meet Tyler Perry.

I don’t want to give away too much about which dream I’ve decided to pursue, but what I will say is that through working with the foundation I’ve had so many amazing experiences! I’ve had the chance to speak at the Winners/Homsense headquarters on their behalf, and I also had the rare opportunity to meet Naya Rivera from ‘Glee’. I had the chance to interview her for more than 25 minutes and we did a press event together. It was such a great opportunity and she was such a genuine and fun person to spend the day with.

The Gift!

This brings me to Friday Favourites! Yesterday I was sitting at home when I received a package in the mail. When I opened it I was so surprised at what I found. I was sent two official scripts from ‘Glee!’ Naya Rivera knows I am a huge fan of the show, so she had almost all of the cast members of ‘Glee’ sign the scripts for me. Some of the signatures included Jane Lynch, Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Kevin McHale!

I know that this gift is truly invaluable and I’m so appreciative that they took the time to sign it and send it out to me. Thank you will never be enough but once again thank you thank you thank you for this amazing gift.

Happy Friday!

Mrs. Carter World Tour!!!

4 Feb

Last night Beyonce was absolutely incredible during her halftime performance. I, as well as many millions of people around the world would love to be able to command a stage like she can. All she has to do is stand and smize (smiling with your eyes) just the slightest bit, and she can have crowds of thousands screaming in disbelief. She has that IT factor that is intangiable. Along wih her flawless voice and killer bod, the Destiny’s Child reunion had me giddy and brought me back to my childhood.

Wait There’s More!

As a good friend of mine, William Reid, would say, hold onto your life alert kids! If a Destiny’s Child reunion and Beyonce at the halftime show wasn’t enough, Queen Bey announced that she will be going on a WORLD TOUR! I just about lost it after this announcement. I have been fortunate enough to attend one Beyonce concert in my life, and now with this world tour, I’ll be able to experience her talent in person for the second time!

As you can probably tell, I can barely contain my enthusiasm! Her concerts are truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience and I’m so excited that she will be coming back to Toronto.

Even though I don’t have tickets, because they are not even on sale yet, I’m very hopeful that I’ll be able to snag one up before they’re sold out and attend this concert of a lifetime.

Friday Favourites! Nail Polish Edition

18 Jan

One of the things I’ve had a fun time collecting over the past year and a half is nail polish! I even went as far as buying a nail rack that can hold over 60 different polishes and I’ve already started to run out of room! So today I’m counting down my top five favourite nail polishes of all time!

5. Smoke and Ashes

My fifth favourite nail polish is Smoke and Ashes by China Glaze. This polish is from ‘The Hunger Games Collection’ and I think it’s absolutely gorgeous! At times a pure black polish can look quite harsh on me, so the fact that this polish has subtle green sparkles makes it amongst my fav nail polishes!

4. Penny Talk

I have a bit of a love hate relationship with this polish. To start this polish is from Essie’s ‘Mirror Metallic Collection’ which includes other metallic colours including silver, gold, blue and purple. Unfortunately this nail polish dries very quickly which often leads to streak marks, however I love the colour soo much that the tricky application is worth the hassle!

3. Fiji

Fiji by Essie is every girls best friend. It is the perfect baby pink and a colour that truly looks great on all skin tones. I really don’t have to say much more because the colour speaks for itself and thats why it is among my favourites!

2. Set In Stones

Out of all the colours I’ve collected, Set In Stone is easily my most commonly used. Though I’ve never worn it alone, this sparkly top coat is perfect for an accent nail which is my favourite way to add personality to your manicure.

1. Mint Candy Apple

Mint Candy Apple

So here we are at number one! My favourite nail polish is Mint Candy Apple by Essie!! I’ve loved this colour for so long and it is definitely my go to polish. I like to do my nails every week and I am not very afraid to try bold colours, however when my creativity stops I can always rely on Mint Candy Apple. Although some people see this as a purely spring/summer colour, I love wearing it all year round. It’s such a beautiful green and is such a versatile and easy to wear colour for everyone! This is why it is my favourite!!!
