Beauty Shopping in Toronto, Canada

I'm back safely on my home soil and had an amazing time on my vacation. Canada is such a huge land mass with endless possibilities for fun, shopping and relaxation. I recommend doing a Toronto city pass which allows you access to 5 major attractions; Toronto Zoo, CN Tower, Royal Ontario Museum, Casa Loma and Ontario Science Center. Be sure to take your comfy walking shoes because your feet will need them! As for the beauty part of my vacation, well there was so much to see, so many new brands for me to experience and so many beauty destinations to explore. Join me as I share part of my amazing trip with you. 


So let's dive straight into the shopping destinations!

1. Shopper's Drug Mart: I'm obsessed with this place and I did spend hours just browsing the well organised beauty aisles and displays. What I appreciated here was that they carried local Canadian brands as well like Gosh Cosmetics, Annabelle and Quo. 



2. Murale: It's an extension of Shopper's Drug Mart but catering to more high end brands.

3. Sally's Beauty Supply: I had to use the GPS to get to the nearest store in Eglinton but it was all worth it. While I naturally gravitated towards the nail section, they were well stocked with a enough for the makeup and hair lovers. 
Here I stocked up on some new brands of nail polish to me like Fingerpaints, Poshe, Stripe Rite while they also carried China Glaze, Orly, Seche. 

4. Trade Secrets: The secret is uncovered! This was another polish paradise for me with even more new brands to discover: Zoya, CND Vinylux, Misa with other brands like Orly, OPI. Besides being a retail store you can get yourself a hair makeover while at it. 



5. Walmart: You might be wondering about this one but when you don't have it, you appreciate it so much more! I love Walmart for having a huge variety of affordable brands. I always spending hours browsing their beauty displays, drooling over Revlon, Wet N Wild, Loreal, NYC and now I've discovered Pure Ice and Hard Candy.

6. Sephora: Oh how I love Sephora! It's has to be one of my most favourite beauty destinations when visiting Canada and the USA. 


7. The Bay: Ahh, another shopper's paradise with some more focus on not just makeup but skincare lines and perfumes. And if not for you, browse the clothing and shoe sections.









Well these are just a few places that I love shopping when in Toronto but you can also find beauty products at flea markets and I also found some wonderful deals at the CNE (Canadian National Exhibition). Just have a good time! Until I meet you again Toronto!

Coffee Date Night with Bae

There are some simple pleasures in life that I enjoy. Coffee is one of them and a good lipgloss. Today I can have both of them together while we go for a date with bae! Sacha Cosmetics has blown me away with their new intense lipshine glosses and awesome names. I love when companies try to just be real with their customers even in these small details. 

Hot Milk Sponge Cake with Fresh Fruit & Coconut

In today's yummy post we are doing an easy sponge cake (no creaming of butter and sugar involved). Instead of torting this cake we are using two loaf pans to give us our two layers, which we will pull together with vanilla buttercream. I love the rectangular look of this cake rather than the traditional round or square but more importantly the flavors of the toasted coconut on the sides and fresh fruit on top makes for a mouth watering dessert.
