I realise I am a bit late to the party, since the recent announcement that Glossier is now shipping to Canada. Between the holidays, the lack of daylight (to take pictures), reviewing other products, working on my new Youtube channel, actually testing out products and just being plain old busy… I haven’t had the chance to share my favourite products from Glossier! Before I begin, if you use my Glossier promo code  you can save 10% off your order!

Katie and I had travelled to Toronto earlier this year and vowed that we would go back again… after all, there were too many shops and restaurants that we hadn’t crossed off our list!
