throwback : the faux bob …

The other day – my middle child, Callum – turned six years old.

As with every passing birthday, regardless of any of my children’s age, I can’t help but feel nostalgic. And I sit here, after an awesome weekend of noisy screaming kids and a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Cake, flipping through all his pictures from birth until just yesterday, and in my “woe is me, my child is getting too big to love his mommy” stupor, I found this video.

In this video, I was actually pregnant with Callum. And I was just starting BlushPretty as a full-time, full fledged, small business (I was birthing two babies!) and more importantly, just starting to dabble in the hair side of things (as you can see by my product choices).

While I uploaded it to YouTube just a few years ago, it was filmed the summer just before his birth, so I was maybe 4, 5 or 6 months pregnant with him. So crazy.

Anyhow, this video still seems relevant given that the wavy bob and lob has recently been thrusted into the spotlight again, thanks to Lauren Conrad.

So here’s to achieving on trend hair even if just for a day … and to a little boy whom
I love way too much.

in toronto: anastasia of anastasia beverly hills …

 Yesterday, I had the opportunity to visit one of my favourite places for beauty in the city: MURALE!

I was invited to check out what’s new for Summer and Fall 2014 and the highlight of it all:
Brow Expert Anastasia Soare, the creator behind Anastasia Beverly Hills,
was present to give quick brow makeovers and share her insider tips.

I managed to take a quick video of her in action, which I’ve shared on
my YouTube channel.

I’ve learned two things:

1. brows are the ultimate game changer in makeup, hands down
2. i really need to learn to flip my iPod sideways for better videos.

For more fun vids to watch, check out my channel, and the team’s YouTube channel!
