Day Of Fun @ National Women’s Show

Every year I try to make it down to the National Women’s Show at the Toronto Metro Convention center to checkout all the new product that are either not available in Ontario or they are not out in the market yet. What I like about this 3 day event is the broad range of product being introduced at the show and in some cases being sold about a fraction of the price. I attend the show to learn about new beauty products and of course all the yummy food. National Women’s Show is the best place to be for any one, not just women.

@VAWK – Toro Safari SS2011

The runway was set in VAWK’s favorite Toronto location at AGO’s Walker court. I really enjoyed the show and hopefully I get to see this collection at The Room and other retailers. Congratulations to Sunny and Ben! Here are some of the favorite looks from the show

Having said that there are a few things that I have been using for years and years – products which are essential to my daily routine. I love both department store brands and drugstore brands – so I have a good mix of both that I use everyday. (Clockwise from top left) Benefit Get Even Powder: I have pretty oily skin so I need a powder that is controls oil and gives good coverage. This compact powder does the job without clumping or making me look too “done-up”. It comes in three shades of Light, Medium and Dark. I usually use Light in the winter and Medium in the summer. Benefit Hoola Bronzing Powder: As you can see I’m quite a big fan of Benefit cosmetics, since not only are the products super effective, but …
