Yesterday was the first day of the Toronto Knitter's Frolic, held at the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre. To say that I was excited was a bit of an understatement. It was my first time going, and oh my! What a great event, y'all! It was awesome to see and feel the yarn from companies, big and small. All the vendors were also a pleasure to deal with.

Are you a fan of the Birkenstocks?
Different target audience, but I enjoyed both:)
Rachel Zoe's book is filled not only with fashion advice, but also tips on hair &makeup, house decorating and stuff like how to host a party and travelling. I'm a sucker for this type of books, and Rachel dispenses great advice in my opinion. The book also has gorgeous photos for inspiration.
Lou Teasdale is the hair and makeup person for One Direction, so I think The Craft is geared for teen-agers (I'm definitely not part of the target audience...ahem....), although there is a short section on tattoos, so I don't know.....I love this book just because it's filled with fun and non-traditional beauty tips. There are also product recommendations for different price points (most are UK products, but you can order them online).
The book is also done like a s…
I've never been to a music festival, but after seeing all the Coachella pics, I was inspired to this hair. Nothing says music fest to me more than hairstyles like the braid...who doesn't love braids, right?
