Not Your Average Old Navy Flip Flop's

I'm all about sockless summer's which is why I sport flip flops whenever I can and they are almost all from Old Navy Canada. Sometimes though while those bright blue, green and pink flip flops are oh so comfy they aren't always the 30 something fashion statement I want, so when my BFF picked up the gold all glitter flip flops ($9.50) a few weeks back I took notice!

She wore them the other day and I thought hmmm... those actually look really nice on! SO I did what any flip flop loving BFF would do.... I bought them in silver ;)

I'm even thinking about using these as my wedding day "dancing" shoes which is why I chose silver over gold :)

If you like these but want them in a bright color such as blue or pink they are on sale for $5 on the Old Navy Canada website but if you are digging the gold or silver head into a store near you and take advantage of their OH CANADA buy 2 get 1 free event on now until July 3rd!
Happy Shopping!

SURESH SAYS! Tips and Tricks from Celeb Makeup Artist Suresh - Talking Summer Lips!

a Today's post is our monthly feature here on called Suresh Says! with the celebrity makeup artist behind Suresh Beauty .

If you follow Suresh on twitter you know how great his beauty tips are and I am so honored that we get to team up exclusively here on FBF to get those tips, tricks and secrets out there to my readers.

Suresh answers a question on the perfect summer lips!

Q. What are your tips to the perfect summer pout?

Suresh Says!
I start with a lip stain in a strawberry or watermelon hue. Then, I smooth on a lip balm with SPF. I finish it off with a light, sheer gloss in a similar shade. I love rosy, luscious, juicy colors for summer. Stains give your pout all-day color while SPF protects from the sun's harsh rays. A light gloss will give you just the right amount of moisture and shine.

So there you have it ladies, follow Suresh's tips for that perfect pout this summer!

If you have a question you would like to ask Suresh feel free to email me with them and be sure to add "Suresh Says" in the subject line.

I Got Blo'd & I Liked it! - Bayview Villages NEW Blo Blow Dry Bar!

Blo'd as in treated to a special VIP day at the NEW Blo Blow Dry Bar at Bayview Village!
I arrived to Blo's signature hot pink coloured carpet and the VIP mood was set. I entered the cozy salon and was greeted by a ton of smiling faces, cupcakes, pink lemonade and a pink truffle tower which I loved!

I was introduced to my Blo Pro, stylist Britney who washed my locks with the most amazing smelling products followed by a briefing of the "Blo Menu" of hairstyles. I decided to go for the Holly Would look which is described as a "fun and flirty with plenty of curl and bounce."
 Britney had the pleasure (or pain) of blo'ing my long long hair and added some curls at the ends with a 1 1/2" barrel curling iron to add glam. We decided on a middle part and voila!
Britney and I after I got Blo'd

Even the humidity and rain couldn't ruin my day because I left feeling like a red PINK carpet hottie!
Thanks to everyone at Blo Bayview Village for making my first Blo experience so special :)

If you or the men in your lives (yes they even have bro blo's lol how cute) havent experienced Blo Blow Dry Bar now is the time to do it because this opening weekend at Blo Bayview Village you can get $21.00 Blo outs, enjoy some cotton candy and walk out feeling like a celeb!
