Toronto Imats 2014 Haul (Picture heavy)

This was my first year going to Imats, after reading a couple blogs I kinda figured what to expect and what to do to prepare myself. I got to the convention centre around 9:15am, the line to get in was moving pretty fast. Inside there were already insane lines for MAC which was 20% off, MUFE which was 40% and Nigel's Emporium which a ton of products. I made a list of things that I wanted but I also ended up getting some Christmas presents here as well for the people  went with. I stayed till 11-ish by that time I was exhausted and I had had my fill. My motivate was to hunt down the booth that sold sigma which was an amazing deal I got two brushes F35 for $11 and F50 for $13 and the Ben Nye Banana powder which was nearly impossible but I did it. Below is my haul of things I got at Imats.
I really enjoyed my experience at Imats and I will definitely go again, its like an adrenaline rush and there is so much to see.  
Some tips for people:
1. Get there early it gets packed fast
2. Make a list if you know what you want, makes it s much fast
3. BRING CASH - I cannot stress this enough
4. Bring water, it gets very hot in there and a bottle of water there cost around $3

The Aftermath

Enduring the first snowstorm of the year, it was bad but bearable especially having to go through that to get to work. We were way better than Buffalo who got pummeled by the snowstorm. This pic was taken before all the snow came down.  I like the day after a snowstorm its always bright and sunny. Gotta love mother nature.

Korean Time

One of my food obsessions is Korean food, every time. It's the one food I an't turn down.
My friend and I went to lunch the other day on the west of Bloor street which is the heart of Korean town in Toronto. Some of the best and authentic dishes can be found here and for a cheap price.
I forgot the name of the restaurant but they have a lunch special which we got. Above is pork bone soup and below is a Korean pancake with all the fixings.
Such delicious and filling dishes.

Halloween Nails 2K14

Its been awhile since I've done nail art. I just wasn't inspired or had the time to try anything.
But with Halloween around the corner I had to do something fun for the holiday.
Each nail is something different - the thumb is a mummy, index is Frankenstein, middle is eyeballs, ring finger is a tombstone and pinky is a blood drip.
Fun and colourful

Essie Take It Outside

Today I swatched one of my new nail polishes that I got recently. This Essie colour is from their new fall line. This polish is so easy to apply, you only need two coats for opacity. In the picture above it is the light grey colur on my PINKY. I find it a mix between taupe and dry concrete grey.

Nail Polish Canada Revew

In Canada their aren't many places that sell nail polishs and nail art decals for a deal, so for many Canadians opt to go online to find  a bargain. 
One popular website is Nail Polish Canada. After purchasing from the site I can say they have a large variety of brands, up to date on collections and the shipping is  free over $25. I ordered on  Tuesday and before the weekend I recieved my order. All the nail polishes wee well packed and secure.
Below is what I ordered - Essie Take it out side(fall collection), OPI my dogsled is a hybrid (fall collection) and seche vite top coat & restore. I made some swatches better and more details are on the way. 
Overall I would buy from this store again fast shipping and good prices will keep me happy!

Cute packaging

Quick post today.
I love how Aritzia packages their shipments. One of the cutest and unique packages I've gotten thus far. This is from a couple weeks ago when Aritzia had their end of summer sale. One of their best sales I might add lots of nice things and for really good prices and the best part they almost always have sizes. Thats it for today. It's pretty grey out and I have to go to work .... sucks but what are you going to do.
