{holiday tunes} she & him

We're looking forward to Toronto's Christmas Market in Distillery District that kicks off tomorrow! Be sure to visit us at our new location: 24 Tank House LaneIn the mean time, get in to the holiday spirit with a cover of "Baby,  It's Cold Outside" by Zooey Deschanel's band,  She and Him!

The secret to the perfect hostess gift is neutral and sophisticated. 
Here are a few of our favourite hostess gifts to give this holiday season. 

1. Lollia Calm Candle : We chose this candle for two reasons. The first, because there's a lot that comes with a name. Calm is the first thing a hostess wants to feel once everyone leaves their home. Secondly, like the other Lollia candles, their scents are mild and have a subtle fragrance that will fill and warm the room. Ok... and one more reason. The design makes it virtually impossible for someone to not find the perfect place for it in their home. 

2. Mor Candied Vanilla Almond : Bar soaps add that touch of elegance to any bathroom. This Mor soap is both stunning in and out of it's packaging. Infused with the scent of candied vanilla almond, it's the perfectly soft fragrance to have in your home. 

3. William Sonoma Cupcake Mix : Why? Because who doesn't like cupcakes .... but seriously. It takes the ordinary boxed cake mix out of the box and into a ... can ... but in a big way. It has great packaging and comes in flavours that go beyond the traditional chocolate and vanilla. ** Also a great DIY alternative to the usual layered hot chocolate in a jar **

4. Teavana 12 Holidays of Teas : Love these tea sets because they offer a variety of flavours and are great conversation starters. It also avoids the worry of choosing a tea that the hostess might not like... now she has plenty to choose from. 

5. Swarovski 2012 Tree Ornament : If diamonds are a girl's best friend ... crystals are like a girl's best friend's sister. Looks the same but without the commitment. This ornament is the perfect addition for anyone's tree and will be a reminder of your friendship every holiday season. 

6. Kai Linen Spray : Again, a subtly soft fragrance that won't damage delicates or offend any noses.

from day to night {how-to}

With the holiday season fast approaching many of us will be busy in the evenings with social events so we thought a refresher 'how-to' on transitioning your makeup from day to night was definitely a november must-do.

Add drama. Darken your eyeshadow on the outside corners of your eyes and along the eyebrow bone {blend well}. Add {or thicken} liquid eyeliner on eyelids. Adding one of this season's hot colours in a shimmer would definitely add a touch of glam. Don't forget to add another coat of mascara!

Strengthen your blush to highlight your cheekbones and add a subtle shimmer to the tops of your cheekbones for a healthy glow.

Darken your lipstick. This season's hottest trend is red lips and there is a shade perfect for every skin colour available. To create the perfect smile make sure you moisturize before applying lipstick {we love Mor lip macarons loaded with vitamin e!}. TIP: adding a hint of plumping lipgloss to the center of your lips will give the appearance of fuller, sexier lips.

whimsically sophisticated

After leaving our shelves temporarily, Mor is back at blossom lounge with pretty designs and wonderful scents.
They say that the devil is in the details, and with their beautifully wrapped products in high quality paper and creative designs, Mor has achieved some of the best product packaging in the industry. But a pretty face isn't all that won us over. Their products are high quality and their scents are virtually irrepressible {hence why we brought it back!} 

Available in store now & online!
