Spray Tans

Zoey  "Well I totally tan on a regular basis... LOL (jokes) a good tan always makes people look great. There's nothing better than having an even complexion... However I think that spray tans and instant bronzers should be peoples immediate go to's since tanning beds and laying out in the sun does nothing but damage to your skin. Taking care of what you have now is better than searching for that 'fountain of youth' 20 years down the road! Be proactive... Not reactive!"
Reese "Not a fan of spray tans. A friend of mine made me try it once... It's messy and can get a little tricky when having to change positions <--- overall - not for me!"   

Jasmine (Model)  "I already have tan skin, but I would love to try it one day!"

Kiki (Health Sciences undergraduate student) "Don't like them because they can be overdone. However, for those who use it in moderation it can fair well."

Janelle Morgan (Event Planner) "When done correctly it can look really good."

Let us know what you guys think!

Homage to Spring

Loosely fitted, light fabrics draping the rounds of your shoulders with the newly refreshed air kissing your skin. There is no better feeling than seeing the snow melt away as the dewy green grass peaks from underneath. Spring is one of my favourite times of year... less clothes, more colour, less snow, more thunder. Prepare for the Pre Summer Bliss.

Here is my Homage to Spring:

Sooooooooo for any of my LD ladies that love OPI and have the OPI Shatter fell in love, am I right????? Alright so we're most likely on the same page... I was told that OPI will be releasing a white and a silver shatter polish in April! I'm aware that China Glaze is releasing a Crackle Glaze collection, but I hadn't heard much about these colours... Lucky for me I'm going to get my hands on the OPI shatter sooner... Seeing as how I have all my American friends on a hunt...

Happy International Women's Day

Why Women Cry

A little boy asked his mother, "Why are you crying?" "Because I'm a woman," she told him. 

"I don't understand," he said. His Mom just hugged him and said, "And you never will." 

Later the little boy asked his father, "Why does mother seem to cry for no reason?" 

"All women cry for no reason," was all his dad could say. 

The little boy grew up and became a man, still wondering why women cry. Finally he put in a call to God. When God got on the phone, he asked, "God, why do women cry so easily?"


I applied for an internship position at MAO PR in New York City not really knowing whether or not they would accept my application. A few days go by and the next thing you know I’m doing phone interviews and getting my NYFW (New York Fashion Week) schedule sent to me! Everything was happening so fast… but I loved it!
On my first day in New York I decided that I should get familiar with my new route to work as the last thing I wanted was to be late. So, I get dressed in some casual attire and set off on my transit journey. It took me about half an hour to get from my home in Spanish Harlem to the busy streets of Manhattan which was perfect. (A huge upgrade from my 2 hour commute from my home in Brampton to my workplace Downtown Toronto!)
So I’m standing on the cobble stone street admiring the scenery, Alexander McQueen store at my back and DVF on my right. I was in fashion heaven! I decided to go up to my office and introduce myself and I definitely was not prepared for what was going to happen next…


Ummmmmmmmmmmm, so I was blessed with the chance to work with one of my top 5 FAV designers of this year! The Blonds!! Working along side of Phillipe and David "Blond" had to be one of the biggest highlights of my life... I was interning with MAO PR, and was able to help put together shows like Rochambeau and The Blonds

I had the chance to meet and work with such amazing people! I learned so much from the designers, PR company, and the other interns... To all the LD readers continue to dream, please do not second guess yourself or be intimidated by anyones negativity... When you work hard you will make your dreams a reality! 

Here are some photos from fashion week...

Dash's Notebook: How to get what YOU want!

Okay, so I admit I can be pretty stubborn and I love to get what I want, when I want it... But then again, Who doesn't?

Now, because I like what I want when I want it of courrsseee I would write down The Top 12 MOST PERSUASIVE words in the English language!

Here they are:

1. YOU

Surprised? Probably not... We all like to be acknowledged and appreciated. Now, be very careful, this word can be a little tricky. It can either get you what you want or a major beat down. Be sure not to use this word with an accusatory tone or you'll never get what you want... and I mean EVER!

What are the remaining eleven words on the Most Persuasive Words List?

2. Money
3. Save
4. New
5. Results
6. Health
7. Easy
8. Safety
9. Love
10. Discovery
11. Proven
12. Guarantee

Challenge: Try incorporating these words into your immediate vocabulary and see if it makes a difference.

Anddd... If anyone ends up getting a Black on Black Bentley Coupe out of it... Please let me know because I absolutely LOVE that car and by allowing me to drive it (all of the time) YOU will SAVE MONEY since YOU won't have to pay for gas. Plus it is PROVEN that the less YOU drive the more YOU can protect your HEALTH and SAFETY. This DISCOVERY has GUARENTEED RESULTS and the NEW precautionary method can be done in one EASY step; Just give the car to me!

LOL ;)

The Weekend

The Weekend - If you don't know him by now, it's a name you are sure to be using A LOT in the near future! He is a fresh new face on the Toronto music scene and he is coming to claim the spotlight. All I can say is that every time I listen to him I get taken away into a different world and he leaves me speechless. His music stays steady on repeat and and his soul filled tunes are ones that I can't get out of my head.

With that being said,
ONLY PRESS PLAY IF YOU CAN HANDLE The Weekend's "Wicked Games"

'Pillow Talk'

She may have the face of an angel, but don't let her pretty looks fool you. Reese is all about handling her business. She has proved to myself and many others that "Acting like a lady- Thinking like a bitch" (one of my favourite nebby quotes) can result in an abundance of successes. This Toronto based designer is the new name on all the lips of the city's movers and shakers. Her line is called Lulu Dash and her blog is on my list of favs and keeps me updated on the day in the life of the designer we have come to know and love. I had a chit chat with Reese for a little "Pillow Talk" recently and here's what she had to say...

Here is MY version of 'Fashion Police' for the red carpet...

 Halle Berry is wearing Marchesa. Okay when doesn't she look absolutely stunning? Nude, crystal encrusted corset, complete with silk tulle ruffles = in love! Personally I would've added more jewelry on the arms... 
Verdict: She looked aaahhhh-mazing

Find Me My Colour!

Finding Lipstick in the perfect shade for your complexion can be pretty tricky... But don't lose hope! I found a perfect reference guide on how to find the perfect lip colour just for YOU!

If you have FAIR SKIN you will look best in pinky nudes. Subtle pale pinks, and cherry reds.

MEDIUM or TANNED COMPLEXIONS are flattered by yellow or orange-based nudes, vibrant pinks and classic tomatoes reds.

If you're a DARKER SKIN TONE you can also benefit from yellow or orange-based nudes, as well as bold berries and fuchsias, and earthy, brick reds.

*TIP* With spring just around the corner a lot of ladies are going to want to try PINK LIPS. If the reference guide seems a little too confusing to follow... Just SMILE; your perfect shade is about the same colour as your gums - no lighter.

**TIP** If the colour that you bought doesnt come out in the same shade on your lips as it is in the tube, try priming your lips with foundation first then applying the lip colour over top!

Manish Arora = crazy!!! I say this in the nicest way possible! To have a mind like his, to create, and make fair tales come alive is the work of genius. The way he executes each piece is just incredible. I personally think every form of artist has at least an ounce of "craziness" in them. In Arora's case maybe a little more then the usual, but I appreciate his work! He has inspired me to continue pushing the limits.
