This week I have been rocking and LOVING the Ciaté London Mini Manor colour ‘Talent Scout’.
Not only do I love the name…It is this amazing purple that really seems to change its intensity in different lights… it can be really bright or deep purple… weird!
Anyway I love it!
However I have found that with the flat colours (none sparkle) they are very streaky, and I will list the colours I didn’t like in a future blog post… rant over… enjoy the pics.
After 27 years of business, Canadian designer Lida Baday has decided to close up shop.
Her creations sold in such places as: The Bay, Holt Renfrew, Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstroms. They have also worn by celebrities such as powerhouse Oprah Winfrey.
Baday’s Toronto studio will be holding a sample sale June 20th until June 21st at 70 Claremont St. Everything is marked down to $80 and less… this is a massive markdown, from normal sale prices being $1,500-$1,800!
However with this sad news, we wish all the best to the Baday family.

After a great Saturday night with some amazing friends, drinking in the moonlight… it was pretty simple to figure out what I wanted to talk about today……ALCOHOL.
Last night I figured I would let my Canadian friends in on a British summer treasure… The Pimm’s Cup. May I say… THEY BLOODY LOVED IT!
The Pimm’s cup is an incredibly refreshing drink consisting of:
You can also add things like: raspberries, strawberries, oranges, apples, mint etc. It’s also a cute idea to serve your Pimm’s cup in a mason jar.
So if your looking for a new summer drink, do try out the British classic…. I know you’ll love it. But do be warned it can be deadly.
My style crush of the week is the gorgeous Rosie Huntington Whitely. My British sister RULED this 2014 Cannes Film Festival with her effortlessly chic looks.
I want to wear EVERY single outfit… waaaaaaa
She wore a slinky black Cushnie Et Ochs dress for the De Grisogono party she finished it off perfectly with a pop of color in her earrings.
For the premiere for ‘The Search’ she wore a perfectly fitting embroidered Gucci gown with minimal accessories.
To top it off she killed it by wearing a Emilio Pucci gown to the amfAR Aids Gala… although pointer I did hate the black shoes.
Well Miss Rosie Huntington Whitely a massive congratulations to your talented stylist… and of course you for creating yourself some show stopping Cannes. STUNNING!
