Givenchy Art Of Perfumery

Our always charming host and beauty guru - Dave Lackie

Earlier this week I had a truly magical time at Givenchy #ArtOfPerfumery dinner. I was one of the few lucky ones that had a chance to attend and experience this amazing event in person. And so many  of Dave's followers and beauty enthusiasts from all around the world were with us via social media platforms like Twitter, Periscope etc.
It's not too late to relive the hype, just follow the #ArtOfPerfumery and you will be taken back in time to our Givenchy dream.

Always charming Dave Lackie knows how to make you feel special. By letting you be an insider to the beauty world and to experience the beauty enthusiast dream, he opens doors to a function normally only accessible to VIP journalists and experts, and allows one to experience something you wouldn't be able to, unless you're a beauty world professional. 

The event took place at Arcadian Studio - located in the downtown core. From the 8th floor you're able to see people running through their daily routines, while you're able to pause yours and indulge.

Upon arrival, the amazing and different scents of Givenchy perfume created a magical ambiance inviting you in and hypnotizing.

"Dahlia Divin' with scented candle again - a new must!

Giggles, chats, camera clicks, old and new friendships, posing, hugs and kisses. It's all there. Those are a few things that make Dave Lackie events so amazing - they are real and heartwarming.

The nights cocktails matched fragrances with their signature ingredients and twist - pretty amazing and different.

My choice for the events refreshments were Gentelmen Only and Irrisistable - very refreshing and light, just like the fragrances themselves.

When the official mingling part is over (it never is, just so you know, as everyone is so high from living this dream like evening, it's hard to follow the schedule), it's time for dinner.

Service and menu never disappoint - "Oliver & Bonacini" took care of us like there's no tomorrow.
Below you can see the menu and amazing dishes we got spoiled with.

Grilled Eggplant & Buffalo Mozzarella; Lemon & Rosemary Chicken Supreme; O&B Artisan Pecan Pie and pink fortune cookie with inspiring message.

After some delicious food and outstanding dessert, Dave introduced us with Givenchy Fragrances Canada general manager David Titheridge. Very charming, knowledgeable and humble man. David shared some great inside stories with us accompanied with laughter, along with some brand history.

With more knowledge, it was even more interesting to go and look at the fragrances again. Scents and presentation now created a different and more complete picture/vision.


After saying never-ending goodbyes (common practice at Dave's events), it was time to return to reality. Reliving beautiful fairy-tale like memories via photos, tweets, posts and hypnotizing aromas from generously gifted fragrances we received in our gift bags. ,

Thank you Dave! I'm so very grateful.

Military Red By BURBERRY

Burberry - British luxury fashion house, that not only focuses on fashion, accessories and fragrances but also cosmetics! I'm sure you were already aware of that.

I'm a big fan of fashion brand's cosmetic collections - not only color will be in trend but also the execution and visual performance of the product will match your current fashion trend. 

I have always liked Burberry - it is very luxury and chic but at the same time very understandable.

Now let's talk lipstick.

  • "Discover an effortlessly buildable lip colour, for multiple lip looks with just one shade.
  • A rich blend of satin-finish pigments and shiny polymers gives luminous colour brilliance, while the weightless formula delivers a customisable make-up result: a single kiss of colour gives understated luminosity, two or three kisses give intense depth and vibrancy.
  • Infused with Burberry's signature blend of rosehip, tea and lavender, the whisper-light texture glides on with supreme comfort and gives continuous hydration." *

-Military Red 109-

I was very lucky to win this beauty via Dave Lackie's giveaway - so very grateful. Always.
Red is classic and always will be. It also has been really trending for a good while now but I have not been brave enough to try it, nor to wear it.

By getting my hands on this beauty, I really didn't have much of a choice.

My Burberry Kisses N.109 in Military Red came in mini pocket size casing with traditional and signature pattern on both - casing and lipstick itself. Very cute. Added that luxury feel right away.

I fell in love with the lipstick and color right away. It's so smooth and easy to apply, last a good while and looks fabulous. Addition to that, it comes with added value - instant confidence!

WaterWipes - The World's Purest Baby Wipes

Today my post will be about this great product that I received via Jule's Basket Instagram giveaway. WaterWipes (99.9% water and 0.1% fruit extract) - baby wipes that are suitable from birth. 

If you plan on using these on your baby, wipes will help to avoid the diaper rash and will significantly reduce risk of allergic reactions on your baby's sensitive skin. 

WaterWipes are preservative free, non greasy and are extra soft to a touch. As mentioned before, they are super pure - made using water and grapefruit seed extract.

I love that these wipes are non greasy and won't leave greasy residue. WaterWipes have won several awards, like PTPA, Health Professional review awards and others, as you can see in the attached picture:

I tested WaterWipes on both of my kids - my newborn and a toddler - used wipes for their faces and their bums :), they worked great for both of them, cleaned the mess without a hassle and left no skin irritation.
Smells really nice and very fresh - not your traditional baby wipes smell.
I think this was one of the reasons why I liked to use WaterWipes on myself too - great after workouts for quick refreshing before I get home to my shower, amazing on a hot summer day to wipe away that sweat - face wasn't left greasy, nor it felt dried out, just perfectly refreshed and smelling nice.

I would definitely recommend to all the moms and dads to try these out and I know for a fact, that I want to purchase these in future.
