Holiday Look Book 2018

It’s the most wonderful time of the year … or is it the most stressful time of the year? If your answer is the latter, we want to make sure we change that by providing you some of the most helpful tips to make your holidays easy, fun and memorable.

            December is all about parties, parties and then s’more parties (pun intended). With so many things happening, finding that perfect outfit for a work party or a family get together can truly be a hassle! This week we are putting together some fun and festive looks for you while keeping comfort in mind! Read on to see our hottest picks of the season!


Leather pants should be a staple in every girl’s closet. They are extremely versatile and can be worn with many different tops to create a chic look in minutes. This is a very casual look with a chic touch. It is simple yet stylish and the touch of red adds the right amount of oomph.

It is hard to stay away from glitter and sequins during the holidays but the best thing to make your look stand out from the usual is adding just a hint of sparkle in your outfit. Rather than wearing an all sequin dress that we have seen for nearly a decade, opt out for something like a skirt or a pair of pants with a simple detailed blouse with a colourful fitted blazer.

(From left to right: Forever21: Boxy High Low shirt $19.90, Double Breasted Blazer $25.99,  Iridescent Sequin Jeans $38.99, Strappy Metallic Heels $27.92)


Mixing and matching different patterns and prints can be a bit challenging but if done right, it can totally elevate your outfit to a new level of chic and style. One thing to keep in mind is to choose two patterns that look good on your body type and from there you can start mixing! This outfit is perfect for moms on the go at family parties or just a casual secret Santa party.

(From left to right:  Forever 21: Zebra Stripe Brushed Net Sweater, Torrid: Ponte Stretch Pull-On-Pant $28.69, Ardene: Faux Leather Pointy Loafers $19.90)


The simplest and easiest look for any event is a classic little black dress because it is easy to style and you don’t have to worry about putting pieces together and making them sync. We have rounded up our fave LBD’s that are in style yet easy and comfortable for you to move in. Whether it’s going for a second plate or simply dancing the night away these dresses will keep you looking stylish all night long.

Meet Santa in Style

Meeting Santa and taking photos has to be one of the most cherished and special moments for every family. The biggest struggle is always trying to find that perfect outfit for your kids! You don’t want them to be too hot while waiting in line nor do you want them to feel uncomfortable in their attire, which makes the struggle of finding outfits even more difficult!  This week we will give easy yet festive looks for your young ones to look their holiday best, so you can focus on making them smile more and stress less.

A few things to keep in mind while choosing a wardrobe for your kids is to think of a colour you would like to stick with, not everyone has to be in the same shade but the same palette helps your pictures look more cohesive and appealing. Another thing to focus on are accessories, A simple outfit can instantly get a lift by the right accessory! Last but definitely not the least are shoes. Often times we ignore shoes when it comes to little ones simply because we tend to think who actually is going to look at their shoes? BUT shoes can honestly make or break an outfit so don’t let shoes put the blues on your photos!

Winter Skin Care

Our skin is at its thirstiest in the winter months and definitely needs an extra amount of TLC. We all *try* to stay committed to our routines; whether it’s about fitness, work, home, lifestyle or as simple as a skin ritual. BUT let’s be honest after a week, we all end up going to sleep with our makeup on and regret it every.single.time!

We need to use products that keep our skin hydrated and moisturized all day without a lengthy process or a never-ending list of creams and serums. This week, we are rounding up our favorite skin products to keep you glowing even if the sun isn’t.


A lot of us forget that exfoliation is key to having a great complexion. Exfoliation helps by removing a layer of dead skin which in return reveals a brighter more younger looking skin. It is best to exfoliate 1-2 times a week with a product suitable for your skin type.

Tulasāra™ radiant facial dry brush  $52  – This brush is available at Aveda and is specifically “designed to sweep away dull surface cells for instant exfoliation”. This really is a game changer in skin care which makes exfoliation easy and fast.
Botanical kinetics™exfoliant $36 – This product will help you get a “smoother, clearer more refined complexion” and it is one of the best sellers designed for all skin types. It is scented with organic lime, geranium eucalyptus and pure flower essence.


One of the biggest issues in winter is that our skin tends to get dry in different spots while the T-zone still stays oily, so the best way to deal with that is to use specific masks for specific areas. Below is a list of masks that are especially designed to combat all issues in one go.     


Pumpkin is the latest in skin care and Bath and Body Works has a whole line of sheet masks that contain pumpkin enzymes and many other useful ingredients to prepare you for those harsh winter days. As always, you can Mix n Match any masks for just 5/$10.

The Body Shop Drops of Youth™ Youth Liquid Face Peel $25 – This dermatologically tested peel gently removes impurities and dead skin cells to keep your skin looking smoother and more youthful.
LUSH Oatfix $9.95 – Skin tends to be extra sensitive and irritated in the winter. This mask is a perfect blend of oats, banana and ground almonds to soften your skin while taking off the flaky and dry parts off.


The best time to moisturize your face is right before you go to sleep because it helps keep the product in place for maximum amount of time. Make sure you cleanse your face thoroughly before bed and finish by applying a layer of moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated until morning.

The Body Shop Vitamin E Nourishing Night Cream Sale: $19.20 Reg.$24 – It will not be wrong if this one product is called THE HOLY GRAIL product for winter or actually all seasons. This cream is enriched with Vitamin E which intensively hydrates your skin overnight and leaves it feeling soft and smooth. This can be applied all over your face and is made for all skin types. With regular use, it diminishes the looks of fine lines and blemishes as well.
LUSH Skin Drink  $26.95 – Skin feels extra tight during winter, and you can quench it by using this cream all over your face and neck. Its packed with ingredients like rose petal extract, fresh avocado, and calming aloe vera extract. This cream will keep your skin soft and moisturized by improving the texture.

We hope this list helps you stay fresh and put your best skin forward this season. All of these products are available at the above retailers right here at Kingsway! So, try adding these products to your winter routine and let us know how you glow!


The weather here in Edmonton has everyone wondering if they should take out a trench or a parka- the struggle is REAL.  It’s not even Halloween and we are getting ALL the Christmas feels. Even though we would have been just fine without the white stuff, we can’t ignore that the calendar does not say winter for another two months! Which means we can still get our FALL FASH-ON!

We have gathered our TOP 4 hottest trends that will transition from fall right into the winter months. Keep reading to see our picks and get them in stores while they are trending!

Eyelash Extensions – Keravie Lash Loft

Want to save time in your makeup routine?  Say goodbye to your mascara and hello to Eyelash Extensions! Lash Extensions are synthetic lashes semi-permanently glued onto your real eyelashes, making them look fuller and longer and can last for 3-4 weeks. Lash Extensions are applied to your individual eyelashes, one by one to achieve fuller, thicker lashes!

Keravie Lash Loft is opening on September 3rd, located on the second level near Entrance 7. Keravie will be providing eyelash services such as G.E.L and  Keratin Lash Lifts, and Classic + Volume Eyelash Extensions.

A G.E.L Lash Lift is perfect for those who prefer a more natural look. This technique uses ammonia-free tint which is milder than regular lash tints. Keravie uses medical-grade ingredients made up of keratin, silk peptides and botanicals which are safe, but also nourish and strengthen your lashes with every treatment. Once your lash lift is complete, your lashes will stay lifted until they naturally fall out- the tint lasts about 3-4 weeks, and it is recommended to have your lashes re-lifted every 6-8 weeks.

For those who want a more dramatic look, Keravie will be offering 3 types of Eyelash Extensions:

Classic – If you already have naturally full lashes and you want to add some length, the Classic set is for you! Get the look of mascara without the hassle of using mascara. These lash extensions are single strand lashes that are individually applied to your own eyelashes. 

Volume (Russian) – Volume lash extensions are multiple lashes that are made into a lash fan. If you’re looking for wispy, full looking lashes, this set is perfect for you! Lashes used in the volume sets are thinner, compared to the Classic set which is perfect for building a voluminous, feathery look without weighing down your natural lashes.

Hybrid – The Hybrid set is a combination of the Classic and Volume lash extensions to create fluffier lashes, with a multi-dimensional look.

Here is everything you need to know about getting eyelash extensions:

  • Within 24 hours of your new eyelash extensions – avoid steam showers, swimming and getting your lashes wet.
  • Your lash extensions should last 3-4 weeks, but if you want to maintain full lashes, 2 week fills are recommended.
  • Take care of your lashes – avoid rubbing your eyes or pulling on your lashes while wearing lash extensions as this can cause your lashes to fall out quicker.
  • Avoid oil-based makeup removers and cleansers – use a water-based remover instead!
  • Avoid wearing mascara with your eyelash extensions, but you can wear mascara on your lashes with the Lash Lift treatments.
  • Wash your eyelashes thoroughly at least once every three days – Keravie recommends using diluted baby shampoo (1 part baby shampoo and 3 parts water).

Keravie Lash Loft is having their Grand Opening on September 15th. To celebrate, we are hosting a giveaway where 1 lucky winner will their choice of a Classic Lash Extension Set or Keratin Lash Lift. Make sure to follow our Instagram for more details!
