As We Gear Up for the Toronto Film Festival…

Let’s have a look at some Venice Film Festival fashion!

I really had no other witty/fitting headline or intro sentence for this post *womp womp* (That’s how you know I’m rusty. Please bare with me, this is my first post in over a year!).

In all seriousness though, TIFF is right around the corner (t-2 days)! In preparation for the amazing red carpet looks we are going to see, here are some of my favourite looks from the 73rd Venice Film Festival, which wraps up this Friday.

With only a few days left until Christmas, there will be many people scrambling to find the perfect gift in the next couple of days.  Don’t know what to get for your girlfriend, friend, sister?  Well, I personally love makeup, and perfume… (cough cough wink,  for my friends and family out there!)

This is a list of my list of classy and feminine fragrances available, which will make perfect gifts this holiday season (and which aren’t too expensive!)

My top four personal favourites are:
