Welcome aboard Travelistas!

On Thursday, May 23rd, 35 executive eFashionistas explored the world of traveling in style at our private party alongside Tania Semper and her experts: hairstylist Maggie Semaan, make-up artist Eva Pavlakos and packing expert Carolyn Ko. This not-so-corporate event was graciously hosted in the Presidential Suite at the InterContinental in Old Montreal (spoiled much?! See for yourself – click here)

Our guests were fashionably greeted with eFashionista passports (cleverly disguised room keys…) and escorted to the 26th floor, suite 2600, a suite filled with girly goodness. What a refreshing break from the usual corporate stuffiness! With Skinny Girl margaritas in one hand, and scrumptious cake pops by Fashionista Treats in the other, our executive Travelistas mingled and immersed themselves in a world of luxury. They lavishly explored three realms key to stylish travel; hair, make-up and packing. So, how does one go from a business meeting to a rockin’ cocktail in 20 minutes?! No problem! Fab hair and make-up solutions were demonstrated on keen Travelistas. How about packing a carry-on for a 3-day business trip? No shortage of tips here ladies! Stunning Tumi luggage and a high-end wardrobe courtesy of Prfkt and Europa boutiques were used to show our guests tricks of the trade.

Oh and how could I forget to mention the glam giveaways at the end of the soiree?! If our guests weren’t spoiled enough already, they certainly were now. Luxurious high-end hair tools by Hair Forensic, a luxe travel pouch by Miss Mak, MaskerAid facial masks, gift certificates for hair, make-up and mani/pedis, Skinny Girl Margarita bottles…

Until next time Travelistas… xxo!

Meet Naomi Assouline, one of the gorgeous Fashionistas who took part in our Annual eFashionista Snow Bunny event last March. Not only is Naomi an incredibly stunning woman from the inside out but she dazzled our beautiful guests with gorgeous jewels that both she and her beautiful mother conceptualized in Cancun, Mexico.

NK Assouline is a jewelry collection that exudes luxury, splendour and prestige, made with some of the finest precious stones. Naomi sported a necklace and bangle made of gold and blue quartz. Click here for our promo video.

Snow Bunny Jewels

Learn more about Naomi: 

1. What did you love most about your Snow Bunny shoot? The cake pops by far!!

2. What inspired you to start your own jewelry line?

When my mother and I moved to Cancun, we realized that we had acquired a certain taste that was not yet represented, so over the next 2 years we travelled to over 35 different cities across the globe in order to create a collection that embodied our vision. The “Mille et une Nuits” collection was the result of that. A mix of 24k plated gold and natural gemstones all hand made.

3. What fashion / beauty product can you not live without? I can’t live without my bronzing powder from Guerlain!

Ainsley Kerr

Ainsley Kerr booked her private photoshoot session at our Annual Spring bunny photoshoot at the Trump Tower hotel in Toronto along with two other bunnies (stay tuned for their bunny reveals). Ainsley was styled by Tania Semper herself, pampered by our fabulous Lush Brush beauty team and photographed wearing a bustier by Marciano, an Ann Swank petticoat, Nine West  shoes (Bloor location) and dazzled with jewels from the Bay.

Here is what she had to say:

1. What did you love most about our Spring Bunny shoot? I loved my co-fashionista, Schmunko! I used to have the most adorable rabbit named Bonnie and he reminded me of her.

2. What would our fashionista audience be surprised to learn about you? That although I love fashion and LOVE dressing up – in my day to day life I am actually quite casual.

3. How do you pamper & splurge aka unleash your inner princess? I hate not having my nails done so I have regular manicures.

Due to my unreasonable heel habit I go in for foot reflexology treatments once or twice a month.

* Bonus question: What is your most sacred fashion / beauty possession? My most sacred fashion possession is my vintage Cartier watch.
