Sephora Beauty Insider Sale!



Today is the first weekend of the Sephora Beauty Insider sale for VIB Rouge members. I always look forward to the sale because it's the perfect time to pick up my beauty staples at 15% off. Sephora rarely has sales, so it's a great opportunity to shop. While this weekend this exclusive to Rouge members, Beauty Insiders, and VIB members can start shopping from April 20-23. 

Today I'm rounding up my absolute favorite beauty products plus some new to me products  available at Sephora.

Christian Dior at the Royal Ontario Museum

The day I saw the announcement that the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) would have a selection of vintage Dior pieces as part of a limited run exhibition - I knew I had to see it. The ROM always has the bests exhibitions. Last summer I experienced the Blue Whale exhibit and it was seriously life-changing. I still talk about it all of the time and geek out about the giant preserved heart. 

Museums are so wonderful because there is something there for everyone. From world history to biodiversity, to fashion - museums are home to a wide array of things to explore. I managed to make it to the exhibit a couple days before it closed - and I'm so glad I made it. 

It was such a treat looking at all of the stunning dresses. Christian Dior is such an iconic designer, and I really loved learning about how he would plan designs, build them for specific models and showcase them in lavish presentations. I also loved seeing the hand embroidery. I was in awe of the attention to detail and sheer perfection of each dress. I caught myself thinking, "I would wear this now" at practically every dress I looked at. It takes a visionary to create something that will last the test of time - especially in an industry like fashion that is rapidly changing. 

I started off taking photos on my phone because I thought DSLR photos weren't allowed. I noticed a bunch of people taking DSLR photos after a while, so I went through the exhibit a third time to take some photos. 





I think it's pretty clear which dress was my favourite (😜). 









What a memorable day! After the exhibit, I walked around the rest of the museum (I couldn't resist), grabbed lunch at the museum's cafe and hopped on the train home!

Spring Shopping


We've officially hit Spring (though the weather has some catching up to do) which prompts the ever popular Spring cleaning movement. I seriously enjoy Spring cleaning and look forward to it every year. Of all the Spring cleaning projects I tackle - my closet remains my favourite task. Year after year I get so excited to take every single piece of clothing out of my closet and deciding what gets to go back in. In short, the process is: trying on the items, seeing how it fits, seeing if it's in need of repair, and ultimately deciding whether or not to keep it. I can do an in-depth post on this if wanted. 



Once everything is put away or packed up for donation - I see what clothing I need for the season ahead. Today, I'm rounding up clothing I'll be adding to my closet once the purge is complete. I'm really looking forward to introducing more colour and lightweight fabrics back into my closet!


Will you be doing any Spring shopping?
