Generation Beauty 2016 Toronto Weekend Thoughts & Experience

Generation Beauty GenBeauty by ipsy Toronto 2016 Weekend Experience

Generation Beauty is a two day beauty event founded by Michelle Phan and her company, ipsy. This event is the place to express ones unique beauty, get energized and inspired by favourite brands, beauty gurus and fans alike. Generation Beauty had been held in Los Angeles and New York, but they decided it was time to go international - first stop, Toronto, Ontario, Canada! 


#NYXClassOf2016 Prom
About last week... I was asked to "Glow to Prom" to celebrate #NYXClassOf2016. Of course I said yes! I mean, who doesn't want to re-do prom? I certainly do. I have mentioned in a past post, my high school prom wasn't what I had hoped - still had a great time, though. But to be able to have a second chance at prom, I made the most of it. Well, sort of. If I had Claire Danes' Met Gala gown by Zac Posen, my evening would have been complete!

Generation Beauty by ipsy is the biggest celebration of the next generation of beauty: YOU. 

On May 14 and 15, Generation Beauty came to Toronto, finally! I have heard and seen pictures of this event, which was always held in Los Angeles and New York City, and always wanted to take the trip south of the border just to join the fun. 

When they announced they were coming north of the border for the first time, I was excited. And when they said it was going to be in Toronto, I immediately bought my ticket! So glad I did because it's truly an amazing experience - more on that in my next blog post. For now, check out all the goodies received from the event. P.S.: This is only half the reason why I wanted to attend #GenBeauty

Mother's Day Gift Guide

A few years ago, under my secondary blog over on Tumblr, I wrote about Mother's Day gifting and being creative (read more about it here). Since then, nothing has changed except for the fact that social media today is playing a huge role in doing the creative thinking for you. Although gifts aren't a priority in the family, I like to throw a few surprises here and there for Mom. And if you're stuck on what to gift Mom, you've come to the right place, here are my top Mother's Day gifts under $100. Don't forget to check out the different ways to celebrate Mom's special day.
