A few weeks merging into Christmas, I polled my Instagram audience when you wanted the annual gift guide to be and by popular vote, I had to postpone it in the content calendar towards New Years. All in all, I hope this Christmas brought you nothing but fond memories, happiness and laughter! Moving forward, I wish you a happy New Year - out with the old, in with the new!

However, this gift guide definitely put me in holiday spirit and I'm ready to give this season a little spice, hoping this sparkling gift guide adds even more sparks to your loved one's eyes!
Hydration, Not Oil-Control!
Part of being a beauty blogger includes meeting & working with extremely experienced people in the industry and during my visit to @TheFaceShop Carrefour Laval event, I learned more about my skin in a one hour time period than I have in the past few months.
Ashleigh Arshinoff, a makeup artist & cosmetician specialist who currently works at The Face Shop Canada along with other brands/pharmacies in the region, WOWed me as she went through important facts about oil/combo skin. I was SHOOK by a mistake I've been making over the centuries of my lifetime.
Do you want to know what the secret is to keeping a long lasting oil-free skin? .... Read more below.
"Running Errands" Streetstyle
Hey guys! In this post, I'd like to share with you my favorite street style looks at the moment! Wether you're on your way to class/work, shopping or brunch - you need to be stylish at a comfortable level (or maybe the other way around?)
As you can probably tell from my everyday outfits, I don't really wear sweats or anything "sporty" for that matter. Preppy or hobo/chic are the two different styles that usually fill in my wardrobes. That being said, I also enjoy change and change forces me to step out of my "comfort" zone sometimes - although sweats are really more comfortable, rhetorically speaking.
Discover my inner "sporty" side as well as some of my other favorite looks ATM.
I guess the older you get, the more you get caught up with grooming and self-maintenance because at the end of the day, self-presentation is important in our today society. As men, we must find ourselves competent enough to go above & beyond to leave a positive impression on people whether it is for job interviews, night events, meetings, or whatnot. In fact, it is more than okay to take care of yourself because the satisfaction you get out of it is real. The Man Company is a Dubai based company that sets a perfect example for grooming products ranging from beard care to body care and I will be unboxing with you in this post, a shower/grooming kit that includes some of my favorite Man Company products.
Are you as scrub-obsessed as I am? Personally, I can't go a week without having scrubbed my face/body at least twice. But I must say, not all scrubs are compatible with my skin as I tend to get a tad bit sensitive from any harsh contact with certain products. However, I'm also aware that the scrub market doesn't have that many fans. People do feel bad for spending their money on pricey products such as scrubs or exfoliants and its application doesn't give much satisfaction either. However, I recently received BodyBlendz' own Coco Luxe Coffee Scrub and I have not seen anything like it before!! I welcome you to read more about this precious discovery of mine. Trust that this will change your perspective towards scrubs...
The Massimo Dutti Era
Greetings & welcome to another blogpost!

Quote Of The Month
Don't forget to subscribe and to drop comments on my new Youtube Channel! My first Vlog is an advertisement for my favorite Shampoo & Conditioner this month! Give it a look & stay tuned for more!
My hair is most probably the main topic of discussion when it comes to my look and the first question that always pops up is what kind of shampoo/conditioner I use. For those who know me, the answer is never consistent because like every other beauty regimens of mine, my products are in constant alternation. Although I may LOVE a certain product, I will not continuously stick to it because I also LOVE change and alternating between products is a fair compromise. BUT, we must discuss my absolute favorite shampoo/conditioner at the moment - BIOLAGE by Matrix! BIOLAGE's LIVE RAW campaign offers everything we want, for that dreamy hair we all die for. Continue exploring the world of BIOLAGE and my personal thoughts about the brand...
SPRING BLACKS & SUMMER WHITES
As we move on to our Summer days, we find ourselves in situations such as extreme heat strokes in the morning and chilly vibes in the evening. That is why I always like to pair my simple T-shirt/jeans outfit (usually or most likely in black) with some Chelsea boots and a leather/jean jacket. These two items not only bring a sense of style to your look but they also add onto that boring T-shirt/jeans outfit.

911 - Dry Shampoo Emergency
Voluminous hair is my middle name and that is thanks to dry shampoo. I haven't gone a day without using dry shampoo because this beauty product helps add texture, volume and style to my hair. Without it my hair would not be looking so fresh everyday.

Do You Even Glamglow?
There is SO much excitement when it comes to GLAMGLOW products, and I have to admit... I 100% contribute to that hype. There is just something about GLAMGLOW that I fell in love with right away. Besides the packaging, which I still can't get over, there is so much more to these beauty masks than you think...
Feeling The (LOV)E
My friends and family will attest to the fact that I am a picky eater. I believe that life is too short to eat bad food! That said, when I rave about a new restaurant, you know it’s worth checking out... This weekend, I got introduced to one of the greatest (if not the greatest) vegan hotspot in Montreal. I cannot emphasize enough how blown away I was by Lov Restaurant, which is located in Old Montreal.
This Winter, I Go Tom Ford
Tom Ford steps up its perfume game this season. I have heard so much about the Tom Ford's cologne collection that it made me eager to find out what the treasure is under the ground.
Gucci's New New
Yall know that I'm a sucker for every Gucci season and that I fall right immediately into their new collections, but this season had me hesitating because of their new designs. They are quite tacky and I personally prefer the simpler designs such as the Fall 2015 ones, however shoes should always be daring because you never know how good they can actually look on you. In this post I would like you to trust me on my personal picks for the season!
