So, last night I got out my m&m’s (which are my absolute favourite, btw) and sat comfortably on my couch to watch the VMA’s.
The red carpet was definitely my favourite thing to watch, but I also loved seeing all of the performances.
For me, the best performance and overall best look of the night has to go to Christina Aguilera! Wow! Christina really rocked the nude lip (which is quite a drastic change from her usual dark red lips – I almost didn’t even recognize her) anyways, I thought she looked amazing!
What do you guys think? Who would you say looked the best at this years VMA’s?

This morning I made the best homemade organic exfoliator, using only two ingredients and in under two minutes!
Combine organic honey with organic sugar and mix together. Apply it in a small circular motion all over your face. Wash off with warm water. Pat to dry.
Give it a try and let me know how it works for you! (*if you don’t have organic ingredients on hand – regular honey and sugar work just as well!)

I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately from women asking me if they can wear ‘shimmer’ after the age of 30? And, my answer to that question, is ABSOLUTELY!
Shimmer is used in cosmetics to help add a nice subtle glow to your makeup application – and there’s nothing I love more than a beautiful ‘glow’! So, here are some easy tips on how to add a little shimmer in your life at any age!
Make sure you’re using “shimmer” and not “glitter”. Glitter, is a great way to add sparkle to a look, but is primarily used by fun teenagers or in stage makeup to help reflect light. Shimmer is the more subdued relative, and can be worn by anyone.
Use a light hand – If you’re going for a natural look and using products with “shimmer” in it, you’re going to want to keep the intensity to a minimum. Always tap off the brush before applying it on your face and use a light hand.
Intensify it - If you’re looking to create a dramatic look – try layering it. Shimmer builds really well and looks amazing when layered!
To add radiance to your face, try highlighting the top of your cheek bones with some shimmer. My favourite product on the market is: Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Brick – It is by far the greatest way to add the perfect glow! The best part is that they come in a wide variety of shades – Beige, Bronze, Rose, Pink and Apricot - and can be used as a bronzer, blush and/or eyeshadow! Plus, they’re great for women of all ages! A Definite Must Have!!
I hope this helped you out!

Earlier this Summer I was on Breakfast Television – Toronto – sharing some of my makeup tips and techniques.
I would like to say a big thank you to everyone at Breakfast Television and to Dina for a great interview! I had a wonderful time!
