Last night here in Toronto I had the pleasure of attending the ‘CLUB YSL #YSLBeautyCrew‘ party which I have to say… Was such a blast!!!!!!!!! I was dying because I loved walking into the party and just seeing a sea of all black fashion…… SOOOO YSL😍😍!!!!!!!!! The party was filled wall to wall with so many people, lots of familiar faces and of course, enough champagne to keep everyone hydrated (tough life!!! LOL!)…. I actually had such a dope time turning it up with my friends but I have to say… more importantly FINALLY getting acquainted with YSL beauty products as (I’m ashamed to say) I have never used YSL beauty products before!!! It was my first time ever even trying them this night, and I only tried a couple!!! I actually ended up falling in love with a couple things :)… So obviously with that said I am super excited to get to know the brand a bit better and try some of these goodies and the VIP gift bag….. stay tuned 😉 xx
It comes once a year and is by far… THE BEST.. SUMMER KICK OFF PARTY.. IF NOT.. GENERAL PARTY OF THE YEAR in Toronto!!!!!!!

It’s always so crazy to me how fast things go by.. It’s April and I am here like wow did Toronto Fashion Week already come and go that quickly? Flashing back at it all, amidst the shows, the parties, oh the parties, the events and all was one thing that always makes my fashion week just that much more.. That one thing is, my stay at our Toronto Ritz Carlton.
This season was nothing short of amazing.. From the warm welcome I got once I entered the hotel to the absolutely ideal view of the tents of Fashion Week JUST so I could see when all the photographers were outside LOL #kidding. That from the beautiful room to… may.. I say… one of the most delicious dining experiences I have had in the city in a while which I will be sharing in another post very very soon!!!!!! Stay tuned :):)
OMG I can’t believe this was already last week!!! Last week I had the pleasure of inviting a bunch of friends to come out with me to a one of a kind night out with Coca Cola here in Toronto in celebration of their new #TasteTheFeeling branding launch. What the party was in celebration for, was the fact that Coca Cola in 2016 will combine all their different brand directions into one harmonious movement being #TASTETHEFEELING. It was such a blast of a night with Coca Cola inspired cocktails, some great performances from Sam Roberts Band, DJ Baby Yu and a special performance from the voice of the theme song/jingle for the new #TASTETHEFEELING campaign Conrad Sewell! Follow along with all the Coca Cola updates on their social media or with the #TASTEtheFEELING hashtag AND scroll down to see some of my favourite moments of the night!
I JUST gotta say, boy do I gotta say…. This is no joke.. SAKS Fifth Avenue, just came to Toronto and messed up the whole game! Before heading to the private viewing a couple days ago I didn’t really know what to expect.. And to be honest, I didn’t really have that high of expectations, I knew it would be cool but I didn’t really realize just how cool it would be.. How my jaw would literally punch the floor like it was battling gravity and yes.. Of course, gravity won.. SAKS is literally Rachel Zoe BAAAA-NANA’s! The shopping game just got elevated.. The shop in shops, like Celine, Givenchy, Saint Laurent, Chopard, Piaget and so much more.. The shoe sections.. The decor, design and everything else.. This is the first time in a long time I have been left without words but really full of words over something fashion related that has happened in our beautiful little city! Saks officially opened today so start your engines and get to shopping miss hunnty’s! Xo

I decided to do something crazy the other day… Crazy… and out of this world (I mean, in my world at least!)… and very unexpected for me. I decided to take up my friends at Holly Eyewear on their offer of getting an eye exam! I did it.. It wasn’t as scary or traumatic as I assumed it would be (Actually it was quite fab lol!!) and I found out I had -2 eyesight.. SO JUSTIFIED apologies now to everyone I’ve ever missed in public while out lol!! Anyways, so I did it learned that my eyes were healthy but I should get classes to clarify my vision.. So.. something else I did, I caved in and got glasses to! And of course, amidst all this I had to snap some pictures and share some images of the amazing space that is Holly Eyewear and the amazing stock they have from Pucci to Chloe, Retro to an epic Andy Warhol collaboration, it really is an experience for your eyes!!!

It’s so cool to see your friends do AMAZING things like open up their own salon in one of the most luxurious parts of the city! A couple days ago Karim & I had the pleasure of spinning one of my close friends, Tony Pham’s opening night party of his new salon/boutique LAC+CO! The space is beyond words beautiful, fresh and airy. The products are so luxe (shotty on the dior sunglasses!) AND the vibe is just so dope! For the opening night the salon was turned into one of the cities hottest parties courtesy of the amazing coordination by Candice & Alison events!!! The music was so fun (we hope you liked it!) the food and drinks were delicious and the crowd was GORGEOUS! It was such a blast.. We definitely had a KIKI!! See some of my favourite photos captured by George Pimmnentel of the night below 🙂 XOJAY
Hello, hello, hellooooo!!!!!! O.k. so if you follow me on social media, then you know that last week I had the pleasure of hosting and DJ’ing the exclusive launch and preview of the new Disaronno bottle design collaboration with Roberto Cavalli here in Toronto!! If you are familiar with the collaboration you’ll know that last year they did Versace and this year they did Roberto Cavalli!! Both my fashion families!!!! For the third year of Disaronno’s ICON project, the design drew inspiration from the Roberto Cavalli SS 2015 Pre Collection. The graphic animal print channels ‘enchanting undersea world and the most exotic safari locations…’ Another plus about this collaboration is that this partnership is also benefitting Disaronno’s ‘ICON’ project’s ongoing Charity Partner ‘Fashion 4 Development’ which is a great initiative sponsored by the United Nations… Honestly, I had sooo much fun being a part of this event and I am so happy that so many of my friends came out to play, kiki, dance and of course sip from the new Disaronno bottles!! I wore a fab just cavalli sweater that my Cavalli family in Milano sent over to me! But side note.. This must of been the first time I wore a crew neck sweater in public in months lol!! The highest neckline I have rocked in a while lol!!! Anyways!!! Continue reading and scroll down to see some of my favourite moments from the night!! XOJAY
