I’ve wanted to visit The Cupcake Shoppe in Toronto for over a year now but never did because I was busy, didn’t know how to find it (reviews online said it was hidden away in some corner and wasn’t easy to locate) and because a lot of the reviews online said their cupcakes were dry and bad and worse than ‘grocery store’ cupcakes.
I finally visited it last week after a post lunch craving for cupcakes. I googled the address and found out that it was actually really near my office…just two subway stops away!
How were the cupcakes? Fantastic!
Before I get into details have a look at the pictures below :
I always wanted to take a makeup lesson or two and learn a few of the more complicated eye makeup looks and address some of the makeup doubts I’ve had for a long time. Going to makeup school was and is not an option for me – too expensive, requires too much time commitment and they teach you so many unnecessary things which you only need to know if you plan on becoming a makeup artist, which I do not.
I wanted to go for a short 2-3 hour lesson which would be taught on a one on one basis and I’d get personal attention and when I found Sehar from Magnified BeautyI knew I had to book her fast and go for it. I checked her work on Instagram and loved it! Her insta pictures comprised of stunning makeup that ranged from subtle every day eyes to bold smokey eyes to vibrant colourful looks – all blended and executed beautifully. I also saw some contouring pictorials and that she was a pro at that and her base makeup in all her pictures was just flawless. She lives in Mississauga so anyone in the Mississauga or GTA area (like me) can conveniently book her because the distance isn’t much, but even if you’re coming to the city from another location I’d highly recommend taking time out and visiting her.
Here are some eye looks she did on me and taught me :
If I wasn’t living in Canada what would be my dream place to live in? England! I’ve been able to visit England quite a few times (have relatives there) and I am so in love with the place. What’s the first thing that comes to my mind when I think of England? Tea , the British accent and vintage items!
When it comes to England and tea I can imagine the classy British ladies having their afternoon tea in vintage teacups with saucers on a round table with a crisp white table cloth surrounded by cookies and macarons and scones!
Aren’t they amazing and so eye catching?! I was at Indiogo’s (Chapters) which is a book store in Canada and started testing out different headphones. I saw the very popular beats by Dr. Dre in nice colours but nothing girly (I wanted the pink ones!). Then just before leaving I saw thes beauties and couldn’t […]
I saw a YouTubers Instagram post in which she turned her Macbook Pro’s keys into a beautiful baby pink shade and right that second I knew I WANTED that for mine! She listed getting hers off eBay but I’m more into Amazon so I went online and searched for them and was so pleased to […]
If you’ve been following my blog for a long time then you know that I love attending wedding exhibitions..Indian wedding exhibitions to be exact. Incase you’re new here, I’ve done a post on the Wedding Asia Exhibition, Suhaag and Kismet so you can check them all out if you like.
I was recently invited by Essence Cosmetics to attend the first preview of their Fall 2014 collection and like a true makeup addict and event lover I went! I was fortunate to attend their Spring Collection launch event on 2013 as well and you can see the details on that here.
I’ve been on the hunt for a good train case for years! I remember the first makeup train case I got and boy was it tiny! My collection has expanded a lot since then and though I was storing my makeup in acrylic organizers, I just didn’t get piece of mind because I couldn’t lock […]
I recently visited the Ripleys Aquarium in Toronto, Canada and enjoyed every second of it. It’s absolutely beautiful inside with a wide variety of sea creatures. My favourite part of it was the ceiling aquarium area where we could see fish floating above our heads.
On a recent trip to Sephora I hit the Too Faced shelf (my 4th favourite brand ) and the first thing that caught my attention was this adorable heart shaped blush. It was pink and golden and had vintage rose gold packaging. So pretty much all of my fave things in one which meant I […]
