Sparkle: Hillberg & Berk Mother's Day Giveaway

*Giveaway is now closed. The winner is Nikk B! Congrats and thank you to all who entered! 

Whether you're celebrating your mom or a motherly figure in your life, Mother's Day is just around the corner. And in lieu of that I have a very special post for you today that is near and dear to my heart. If you've read my first post or my 'Meet V' page then you know that my mom was my biggest influence and she is who I credit my love for fashion and beauty too, among many many other things. Unless you know me personally you may not know, but my mom passed away when I was 17 from a very short battle with cancer.

Losing my mom was the hardest thing I've ever gone through. But I am extremely thankful to have so many people that helped me stay strong and continue to do the things I love, and I owe so much to them (you all know who you are). But the person I owe the most credit to is my mom. Her determination, passion, and sparkle during her life is what reminds me to have that same outlook. Even though I now celebrate Mother's Day a bit differently than others, I want to share the sparkle with you and your mom, or motherly figure. Because it really does start with mom. 

Making a Statement in Red

The sun was shining and it definitely was feeling like spring last week. With the help of Ricki's, I'm going to show you how I style Ricki's Colour of the Moment: RED. Now, I know red isn't typically a spring colour, but with the right complimentary pieces you can easily take this colour from season to season. To me, red is the perfect colour to make a statement with.

This classic red blazer from Ricki's is a great staple item that you can wear all year round, just by changing up what you wear with it. My tips for spring is to keep the rest of your outfit light and neutral. White, beige, and light blue jeans are what I chose to work with. Another tip is to mix your metals! The silver details of the blazer and my watch, are fun contrast against the gold in my shoes, the shirt, and my necklace.

Hair Time: CZE by Tania Hot Hair Oil Masque

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to win the CZE by Tania giveaway on Tannis Miller Create. CZE by Tania is a Winnipeg-based, all-natural hot hair oil masque product. When I found out I won, I was so excited to try out Tania's product. You see about a month ago I ombr├ęd my hair, and I'm totally loving it, but like most people who add bleach to their hair, mine was feeling fairly dry on the ends. So when I got my hands on Tania's hot hair oil masque I was ecstatic.

I had the chance to ask Tania some question about herself and CZE by Tania. Here's what she said.

tarte Rainforest of the Sea Cleanser & Moisturizer Review

A few weeks ago I was browsing Sephora for the second time that week when I came across a new tarte display. The purple and blue colours with the gold accents caught my attention. And once I realized that the theme of this collection was the sea, I was hooked. See, my favourite movie since I was three years old has been The Little Mermaid. Growing up I declared Prince Eric as my first crush at age four, and by age six I thought I was going to be a mermaid when I'd grow up. Fast forward 15 years and I'm still obsessed with anything that is "mermaid" related.
