On Friday I had the pleasure of attending Cityline in Toronto- the longest running and most successful daytime show for women in Canadian history. Shout-out and huge THANK YOU to Dave Lackie for inviting me, and giving me this amazing experience.
Upon arrival we were brought up to a green room, where breakfast was served by Coty Prestige. They did a great job, so impressed by the selection!
Here are some photos:
How cute are these mini bagels?!
I had such a wonderful time with some of my favourite friends who are beauty bloggers as well. I highly suggest you follow these ladies, they are all so sweet and have great content:

With some of my favourite girls!!! Cityline took this photo of us below and posted it on their Twitter feed:
These girls are absolutely so sweet. I am so thankful to have met them all thanks to Dave Lackie and beauty blogging. From left to right: Christine, myself, Nicci and Cat.
This taping was on a Friday so we got to see a Fashion Friday segment live with Lynn Spence!!! Here are a few photos of some of my favourite outfits shown:
We also had the treat of seeing Dave’s beauty and fragrance segments! He and Tracy Moore the host of the show are soo funny together!
The amount of work the crew puts in is unbelievable. When you watch the show you really don’t know what goes on behind the scenes, and the amount of team work and dedication it takes to make everything happen. Absolutely phenomenal people, they were all very sweet and great at explaining how things work.
I also got to see the control/production room, this was so cool!
This is where the director calls the shots, and the videos and content used in the show gets uploaded (to name a few). Lots of team work happening in this room!
After the show I went down to take some photos of the set up close. It is so lovely, I love the vibe they have going on. So pretty, fresh and modern.

I also had my photo taken with Lynn Spence and Candy Signorini, they were both SO funny and great to chat with:
Thank you SO MUCH to Dave and everyone at Cityline for having us. You treated us to an amazing experience, and showed us a side of broadcast that not many people get to see unless they work in the industry. The crew really is like a family there, and it is inspiring to see a group of individuals come together, work hard and produce something so many people love like Cityline.
Here is a photo of the extremely generous gift bag we received. Will be doing some individual posts on some of these products:
I also did a short question interview with Dave on his role with Cityline, and the beauty industry in general. I wanted to include it in this post, but it would be too long, and I also really think it deserves its own feature/post. I will instead include it as a separate piece, so stay tuned on my blog this week for that- you won’t want to miss this! Those of you that already know Dave as well know how kind he is, and I am so grateful he took the time to answer some questions I asked him, and that I can share this with all of you. I cannot wait for you to see that post this week!
The taping we attended will be airing on Friday, September 9th on CityTV. If you missed the fun, you can see it all under the hashtag #citylinebeauty.
