Cityline Taping- Dave Lackie Event

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.

Dior- Addict Lip Reviews

Dior Addict is AMAZING, plain and simple.  I LOVE Dior’s lip products, as you may know from my recent review of the Dior Lip Maximizer.  If you haven’t seen it you can read it here,  In my recent post on the Cityline taping I was lucky enough to get to attend for Dave Lackie’s Twitter Followers, the gift bag I mentioned included a Dior Lip Addict Ultra-Gloss.  This review will focus on the Ultra-Gloss as well as two products I recently purchased from the Lip Glow range.

Cityline- Dave Lackie Twitter Follower Event

Last week I was fortunate enough to be chosen to attend a Cityline taping as an audience member (plus one guest) in downtown Toronto!!  Dave Lackie teamed up with Cityline, and he had another Twitter follower event contest on his blog.  I cannot express how amazing this experience was!  This post will cover the main highlights.

Upon arrival we were brought up to a “green room” for coffee, pastries, donuts and croissants, all thanks to Shiseido.  There was a spot at the front of the room with a Cityline backdrop where we could take photos.  The room quickly filled, and the energy was starting to build.  Everyone I spoke to was so excited!

Pictured below is the breakfast Shiseido provided for us:

Dior- Addict Lip Maximizer Review

Looking for a lip plumper that provides results without burning or stinging?  A product that will instead leave your lips feeling soft and hydrated? Look no further.  Dior Addict Lip Maximizer is my go-to lip plumper!  Here’s why:

The packaging of this product is gorgeous.  I love that it is square-shaped.  When you set it down it does not roll around, or off the surface.  You can set it on its side, or stand it up vertically and it stays put.  There is a silver knob located on the top applicator end, which gives you a little more control when holding the wand to apply the product.  I have tried a few other lip plumping products by different brands, and nothing compares to the Dior Addict Lip Maximizer.  After applying the product you can see results within just a few minutes.  The formula glides on effortlessly, and the wand applicator is small therefore, you can really place the product exactly where you want it.

Pictured below is the one I purchased in shade “Pink 001”:
