Get Ready for Fall with COVERGIRL Outlast Collection {giveaway|

I was driving along the Don Valley this week and suddenly the leaves all seem to be turning. Gorgeous shades of reds and yellows and oranges all around. The days are getting shorter, and cooler, the winds a little brisker, and fall has definitely arrived. For 75% of the year I swear I am a summer girl through and through. Until September starts to move into October. Then I start eyeing my boots and skinny jeans, and pull my sweaters out of storage. And then I remember that I love fall as well.

Fall can be a super busy time of year, with kids back in school, lessons starting up, and everyone getting back into routine. Add in all of the holidays coming up, and our days can get packed pretty quickly. To give us a bit of a helping hand, COVERGIRL is excited to share these steps for ensuring our make-up will outlast our days:

Step 1: Use COVERGIRL Outlast All-Day Primer to prep your skin. Its formulation not only extends the wear of any foundation it also hides pores and reduces imperfections, providing a smooth canvas.

Step 2: Apply COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Luminous Foundation for fresh, glowing skin. Its innovative new formulation with unique light reflecting particles and over 40% skin conditioning agents hydrates the skin to help keep it looking healthy and lit from within. Its lightweight feel and medium coverage leaves skin with a natural luminosity that lasts all day long.

Step 3: Add a pop of colour to your lips. Available in 12 beautiful shades, COVERGIRL Outlast Longwear Lipstick has a waterproof, all-day colour formula jam packed with a rich blend of nourishing oils and lip conditioners. So colour stays put and won’t flake or crumble.

Step 4: Seal any look with brilliant tips. COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss will go strong for 7 days long.

Second Annual Tea & Tiaras in Support of the Starlight Foundation - October 25th, 2015

As a mom, it always upsets me to see any child suffer. Whether it's the tears from a skinned knee, the anticipation of surgery, or facing a terrifying diagnosis, it's so difficult to see kids dealing with the fear and pain. Childhood is for sure a time for exploration and throwing caution to the wind, which can lead to lots of bumps and bruises and even broken bones, but anything that lands a wee one in hospital is especially heart-wrenching.

Childhood should be a time of fun and dreams and laughter. Which is why I love the great work done by the Starlight Children's Foundation. For more than 23 years they've been supporting seriously ill children and their families with both in-hospital distraction and entertainment, as well as out-of-hospital special experiences through their Wishes and Escapes programs.

This registered charitable organisation depends on the generosity of donors to support their important work, and they find ways to make giving fun through special events, like this month's Tea & Tiaras, happening October 25, at Toronto's Fairmont Royal York. Hosted by CBC News Now's Suhana Meharchand, and running from 1-4pm, the event promises an elegant afternoon of raising awareness and funds for Starlight Canada.

This second annual Tea & Tiaras will be a decadent gathering of mothers, daughters (ages 12 and up), aunts, grandmothers, cousins, friends and colleagues, featuring top-notch entertainment, food and a fashion show by Riani Designs .

Starlight Canada is thrilled to be welcoming an extensive list of Canadian talent to join in on the afternoon tea party including: JUNO winner Simone Denny; musicians Alessia Cole and Tara Shannon; Corner Gas’ Tara Spencer-Nairn; Saving Hope’s Kim Shaw and Parveen Kaur; media personalities Kim D’Eon, Lynn Spence and Allison Dore; along with many others.

For A Limited Time - Get Your NHL Collector Cards at Tim Horton's #Timfluencer {Giveaway}

Tim Horton's keeps coming up with the fun! And considering the company was founded by a star hockey player, this new promotion seems like it was actually a long time coming!

Do you remember collecting hockey cards when you were a kid? I know my brother and I were collectors. I admit, most of mine ended up in the spokes of my bicycle, but still - collectible sports cards were a big part of childhood. And now fans of Timmies and the NHL can start collecting again, whenever they visit their local Tim Horton's!

The Tim Hortons Collector’s Series NHL Trading Cards are available in three-card packs, while supplies last, for just $1 plus tax with each beverage purchased ($1.99 without purchase).  The collection highlights 99 of today’s NHL superstars in the base card set plus a Tim Horton player card (#001 in the set). Collectors can also watch out for a variety of insert and redemption cards, including NHL Autograph Cards and NHL Jersey Relic Cards that feature a piece of an actual game-worn jersey from one of 17 NHL players!! There are even eighty-seven personally signed Sidney Crosby Timbits hockey cards featuring him as a young Timbits player in his hometown of Cole Harbour.

There's an online component as well - each pack of cards contains a unique PIN that unlocks digital trading cards online. Register at, and you will automatically receive a digital five-card starter pack.  Fans can collect and trade digital Tim Hortons Collector’s Series NHL Trading Cards with other fans across the country for a chance to win 1 of 5 VIP trips to the 2016 NHL® All-Star Weekend, as well as one of 100 EA Sports NHL ’16 PlayStation 4 Prize Packs and other great prizes.  See the website for details and full rules & regulations.

The cards were developed in partnership with the NHL, the NHLPA and their exclusive licensed trading card partner, Upper Deck.

Remember – puck drops October 7th!
