Black & White

Earlier this week I had the pleasure of attending the Vancouver Beauty Bloggers Meet-up at Sanafir, organized by Sheila of Maddy Loves. It was so nice to finally meet the faces behind some of the blogs I read... Vancouver has such a great blogging community!

I arrived straight from work so I was in total work attire (a.k.a. a full suit) but black and white are a classic combo, right?

Blouse: Talula Babaton / Pants: Gap / Shoes: Michael Kors / Watch: Michael Kors

I was also sporting my most recent nail experiment, which involved layering Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure over OPI Bubble Bath. I had always thought Hidden Treasure worked best over darker colours (see this post) but it turns out it looks great over light colours too. I think it gives it an added pop to an otherwise neutral mani.


A big thank you to the sponsors (we left with amazing gift bags full of items) and the industry reps from Vasanti Cosmetics and Nail Polish Canada who were in attendance.

  31. So pretty! I love the layering of the nail polishes, definitely takes it away from being too neutral!
