I AM SO THANKFUL to every single brand that participated.
My biggest gift was to spread the love, share, and of course, see the look on my friends faces. They were all so happy and have been showing their love on their own social media channels and on behalf of the brands WE ARE SO THANKFUL for your support ladies !

Richmond and Finch Phone cases have always been a favourite of mine. I love their trendy designs and I own a couple of them so its always fun to dress up my phone as it is a big part of my every day life.
Vancouver candle is a definitely a favorite. Especially because of the fact that each candle represents a popular areas in Toronto. It makes a great and thoughtful gift. They are available at Holt Renfrew
“VANCOUVER CANDLE CO. WAS BORN OUT THE PASSION OF NICK RABUCHIN. HIS UNIQUE TAKE ON CANDLE MAKING, MIXED WITH A DEDICATION TO ARTISANAL CRAFTSMANSHIP, HAS CREATED A CULT-LIKE FOLLOWING FOR HIS LUXURY CANDLES.”
Tammy Fender Skin Care is alway on rotation in my bathroom vanity. I love their organic creams and they are perfect for this time of the year when dry skin can be a challenge.

Rowan Apothecary These are by far my favourite potions and I love to use them in different ways, some days I mix them with my moisturizer or I put a coupe of drops in my bath or even my hair! Everything is made from natural ingredients.
“ROWAN offers a curated selection of organic skincare and folk remedies, alongside bohemian inspired vintage decor, crystals, incense and burnables, local ferments, raw honey, and natural fibers.”
EOS Vanilla lip balms are a MUST in the winter time as your my lips get so dry and are constant need of some love and care
“Vanilla Bean is back just in time to add (even more) delight to your holiday season! Makes a great holiday gift or stocking stuffer.’
Smashbox Cosmetics are a staple in my makeup bag. I have been a big fan of their products for years and years. I started buying their primer and was immediately hooked. From lipsticks, to contour kits, this brand has got you cover. The best part, all SMASHBOX PRODUCTS ARE animal cruelty free.
“WE LIVE FOR LIPSTICK. Get excited about primers. But most of all, we love sharing our makeup secrets with you. Why? Because we are a beauty brand born out of a real photo studio—the legendary Smashbox Studios in L.A.—and creating gorgeous looks is what we do here. It’s all about being your most kickass beautiful self at Smashbox.”
Sally Hansen Color Therapy nail polish is simply amazing! I have tried a coupe of colors so far, and my nails are always looking great and they don’t chip.
“It was in the late 1950s when Sally Hansen, together with her chemist husband, pioneered a nail protection formula called Hard As Nails. Touted as “the nail clinic in a bottle,” Hard As Nails established Sally Hansen as what is now the number one brand of nail care.”
‘Teeez is a European brand with an unconventional edge for women with a lust for life. We’re keen on empowering you with innovative prêt-à-porter products in vivid colors hot off the catwalk.

Ashley Bridget Bracelets -This is a Canadian company that makes the most thoghtful and beautiful jewelry. I had the opportunity to work with this brand earlier this year and feature the “TORONTO” bracelet which was such a hit. There is nothing l like city pride!
Maille is also a big favorite in our home when it comes to entertaining and making yummy snacks. I always use their products when I make my charcuterie boards and sandwiches .
“Know-how, craftsmanship and the human touch contribute to the character and quality of products La Maison Maille has been producing for more than 267 years. The tradition is kept alive by the team of experts who create the products today, preserving the excellence that defines La Maison Maille in a continual quest for innovation and perfection. It is the attention to detail that sets La Maison Maille apart – the carefully selected ingredients, the nuances of the recipes, the expertise in the methods used and the elegant black and gold packaging.”
La Vie en Rose intimates and pjs are another favorite of mine. I am in love with this bralette and pjs and I wear them all the time around the house. (Sometimes for days and days) ;o)
This is a brand that has been around for 30 years and so I was so happy to share these beautiful pieces with my girls from such a recognized and trusted brand.
Michelle Ross Jewelry is a brand very close to my heart. I have worked with Michelle in the past and even took part in her Holiday Collection Campaign. It was such an honor! She and her team have been incredibly kind to me and so I wanted to share her beautiful pieces with the girls.
Spark Candles are a new obsession of mine. I fist got them as a gift from a party and I have been in love with their durable scents. The candles come with a cute box of matches.
Renee Redesings Another favorite home accent of mine. Renee’s designs in gold, black, silver and rose gold are to die for! I always get so many compliments every time I entertain. They also have these beautiful slates like the black one below and I basically use them for everything in my room and closet. I use them to place my phone, as a jewelry catch all, I put plants and anything else I can think of.
“We truly believe energy is transferred not only through people, but through objects as well; which is why we infuse love and positive energy in every coaster we paint. Our first collection was inspired by my daughter Ariana’s love of gold. She is the motivating force and face behind the brand.”
Just Greet cards are another favorite brand when it comes to stationary. Their fun and current designs are sure to put a big smile on anyones face. Like this cute BEY MERRY card. So smart!
Swell Made Co has the most creative and funny stationary, keychains, necklaces and more!
“Created by Lesley Pocklington and inspired by her love for minimal design and type – Swell Made Co. offers paper goods + gifts that make a statement.
She likes to keep things simple. Everything is modern, but thoughtful (and witty) with a touch of gold. “
The Peach Box Jewelry has always the funnest and budget friendly designs. They are so versatile and you can always dress them up or dress them down. Another favorite for layering over a watch.
Saje wellness is another Canadian brand I love
“Founded in 1992 by Jean-Pierre LeBlanc and Kate Ross LeBlanc, a passionate husband and wife team, Saje began introducing people to the healing power of 100% natural, plant-derived alternatives to pharmaceutical medicine.
The Saje we see today is truly special. In every Saje shop, people are inspired to live healthier and happier lives, team members are inspired to contribute and make a difference, and a stronger, healthier community is built one wellness goal at a time.”
Your Pal Al Creative – I have so much love for Alie Croza, the girl boss behind the brand. She is a creative mind and such a hard worker. She is a true inspiration.
Her designs range from planters to jewelry catch alls, to coasters, stools and the cutest designs to add the perfect accent to every room.
Ona Chan Jewelry Another beautiful jewelry brand made with so much love and passion. I have had the opportunity to work with Ona and to meet with her and she is absolutely lovely and a great example to follow. A mother, a wife and a business owner. The definition of a GIRL BOSS
The pins gifted to the girls were made with whimsical animals, insects and charms added to stainless steel hairpins to create the another perfect hair accessories. A percentage of the proceeds will benefit the BC Children’s Hospital
