I was invited to attend the 11th Annual White Cashmere Collection and it was a breathtaking event. It’s hard to believe that it’s been 11 years since the first gorgeous designer bathroom tissue creations walked down the runway and the annual breast cancer fund and awareness rasier has seen the best of Canadian fashion lend their talents. This year’s collection was designed by Canada’s next generation of top fashion designers. Each designer was nominated by the collections past designers and it is so exciting to see these emerging designers creations made from 100% Cashmere Bathroom Tissue.

I love these photos I was sent from Triumph Lingerie for their rebrand and launch into the US, so I had to share. It’s a little NSFW so you probably don’t want your boss to walk by while you’re reading this one.
My hair is long and fine and I have a lot of it, so I spend a great amount of time brushing and detangling during the day. I hate the feeling of brushing out knots and tangles, it just rips your hair out and causes split ends. My salon used the Tangle Teezer on me a couple of times and it seemed to work really well, so when the opportunity came to try it out for myself, I jumped on it!
I was sent a Tangle Teezer Compact Styler in Rock Star Black (it’s glossy black IRL) and it’s the perfect size and shape to fit in my hand. It comes with a click-on, click-off cover so your bristles don’t break. The bristles are a fine, soft plastic and they are different sizes so it detangles the knots delicately, instead of ripping through them.
I’ve been using it for the past few weeks on both dry and wet out of the shower and it works really well. The soft bristles don’t hurt your head and they don’t get stuck in tangles, but glide through and over them. I’m pretty hard on my hair when I brush it, so this has been a bit of a relief to my head I’ve been using it as my daily brush & comb and I’m going to continue using it as my go to. It also works pretty well for putting your hair up into a ponytail.
It’s definitely a cool little tool and you can get the Tangle Teezer Compact Styler in Canada at Sephora for $25 CND.
This is a post for the gentlemen.
Gender Equality is everyone’s issue and I am extending the invitation to you to join your mothers, your sisters, your aunts, your cousins, your wives and your friends in the #HeForShe solidarity movement for gender equality.
If not me, who? If not now, when?
I think it is right that I am paid the same as my male counterparts, I think it is right that I should be able to make decisions about my own body, I think it is right that women be involved on my behalf in the policies and decisions that will affect my life, I think it is right that socially I am afforded the same respect as men. But sadly I can say that there is no one country in the world where all women can expect to recieve these rights. No country in the world can yet say that they have achieved gender equality. These rights I consider to be human rights.

I am in love with you + me. The duo of Alecia Moore (aka P!nk) and Dallas Green is an unlikely pairing on paper, but when you hear their voices and see them together, it is perfect. I’ve always really liked P!nk and her voice has so much soul, so pairing it with Dallas Greens soft, honest sound was something that seems meant to be.
It’s been a while since I was really excited about an album to come out. I can’t wait to hear what else they’ve got.
