Toronto ~ Cabana Pool Bar

I'm heading back to Toronto in a couple weeks and I've got to go back to the newest hot spot to cool off - Cabana Pool Bar. A Las Vegas style day club on the water front in Toronto with a 50,000 sq. ft. patio perfect for hosting the 2,500 fun seekers and sun worshipers. 

Justin Bieber and Deadmau5 were partying there last summer

Their opening weekend kicks off on Friday June 13th with 'Ditch Fridays'

Follow by one of my favourite D.J.'s Pete Tong on Sunday June 15th

Product Review: Trust Fund Beauty

Hi Styleistas! The weather is finally taking mercy on us and sandals and shorts are coming out of our closets...FINALLY!

What better way to say 'I'm ready for the sun' then a sexy mani and pedi sporting the hottest S/S 2014 colours?

I'm obsessed with Trust Fund Beauty's line of nail polishes! The best part, besides the super cute names, is that they are all non-toxic!
Their "5 Free" formula excludes these harmful chemicals

  • tortuene
  • formaldehyde
  • lead
  • nickel
  • phthalates

*Plus they are all vegan and cruelty free!*

I used the colour 'I Had It First' on my toes during my last pedi...

Colours L-R: I Look Good Nude, I Had It First, Big Spender, Virgin?

I Had It First

Pedi Time!!!

Finished result...LOVE!

Thanks Trust Fund Beauty for all the beautiful colours!

Runway Report: Resort 2015

Louis Vuitton 

The LV Cruise collection, designer Ghesquière's second show for the LVMH powerhouse, was an elaboration of his first. He's still thinking about "a wardrobe," but these clothes were significantly more embellished than what he did for Fall, and, by extension, more playful.

Festival de Cannes 2014

Best Dressed 

Blake Lively in GUCCI
 Blake is absolutely stunning in an oxblood, chiffon Gucci gown.  She accessorizes with a pair of gorgeous Lorraine Schwartz ruby drop earrings and two diamond bracelets.  But the best aspect of the look is her long, messy braid, which adds the perfect finishing touch to her overall appearance!

Zoe Saldana in Victoria Beckham

Worst Dressed

Karlie Kloss in Valentino 

Karlie is too hot for this dress. There is too much fabric and it overwhelms her completely. I would rather see her in some thing less complicated and more modern. This is just all wrong.

Last Best Brew Launch

Styleista had the pleasure of being invited to the exclusive launch of Alberta's hottest new beer brand; Last Best Brew hosted at the chic and contemporary Commons venue in the SE.

Calgary is literally surrounded by a sea of barley, so it makes perfect sense to harvest and create their crafted beers from our own Albertan soils!

Last Best Brewing & Distilling is the fourth Brewpub in the Bearhill Brewing Family of Breweries and their goal is to grow community and culture by creating fun and interactive brewery and restaurant experiences. 

Last Best beer is available at select venues and retailers in Calgary but of course our favourite place to get it is National Beer Hall!

Team Styleista sandwich with the beautiful @katiemarks

@jonmoly and @tankcalgary - love the farmer Pharrell inspired hat ;)

Last Best plans to launch distilled products and a full service bar later this year so stay tuned
