It was my 17th birthday and I saw this $150 GUESS purse in the store window. It was gold, one of my favorite colours, small and unique. I casually mentioned to my friend Patrice that I really liked it and she simply ignored me. It was an odd moment but totally normal. My love for fashion is known by all of my friends. So me being excited about another bag was not out of the ordinary.
On my birthday, Patrice presented me with a gift bag. I opened it and to my complete surprise she bought me the same gold GUESS purse. I was speechless and almost started crying because a $150 purse was a pretty penny back then. Patrice was working at a grocery store, so I knew that she had to work many hours to purchase this purse for me. I still remember how special I felt knowing that she would sacrifice so much for me.
I recently found the purse at my parent's home and even after 13 years, the memory of that special moment filled mind.
Patrice is still one of my dearest friends to this day. Her son is my youngest God baby. And I still have the gold GUESS purse.

Chanel is a timeless fashion house that continues to be one of the leaders of the fashion pack. I love Chanel bags, clothes but most recently I really started paying attention to Chanel makeup.
Not only is the black and white packaging sleek and chic, the actual Chanel product is high quality. I currently own a lipstick in Rouge Allure 102 but purchased a lovely smoky eyeshadow in Illusion D' Ombre in 83 Illusoir at a recent Chanel Pop-Up event at Holt Renfrew. The lipstick goes on smooth like silkvand stays on for hours. The eyeshadow is so shimmery and also lasts all day and all night.
My fashion buddy @weekendirene was kind enough to invite me to the Chanel Pop-up event at Holt Renfrew. We played with makeup, did our nails and took fun photobooth pictures. I was most impressed with the wide range of lipsticks colours to compliment my chocolate skin tone.
The Chanel Makeup Pop-Up shop will be Holt Renfrew Bloor for the next few weeks. Stop by and try the wide array of colours and products.
When I flatiron my naturally curly hair, using Living Proof No Frizz Shield is important to prevent and stop frizz. I initially saw Monica of Awed using it on Instagram and ran and got a can.
I use this product for smooth middle part hairstyles and when I am wearing a sleek bob.
It works and really is lightweight and smells divine. Just spray a little and watch it work, work, work work!
The price is steep but worth it.
If only it came in travel size...
Check out Living Proof.
