So excited to share the details of this year’s Pink the Town holiday party. Last week, we hosted Cookies, Crafts & Cocktails at Le Dolci Cupcakes & Cakes. It was a festive evening full of sparkly cookie decorating, a DIY floral workshop, and delicious bubbly from Fresita.
We had a blast with all of the amazing ladies that braved the snow storm in Toronto and came out to help us celebrate the holiday season. Check out the details below!
If you haven’t visited Le Dolci this time of the year, you must! It’s extra adorable.

If you’re been following along on Instagram you probably saw all of the pictures I’ve been posting of my trip to New York City. Can you believe it was my first time? I loved playing tourist and seeing all of the famous sites, including a carriage ride around Central Park, ice skating at Rockefeller Centre, shopping in Soho, seeing the Brooklyn Bridge, Times Square, Statue of Liberty and 911 Memorial. We also visited some amazing restaurants and checked out all of the shops. We even went to the Top of the Rock which was an incredible view from the 67th floor. Although if your like me and have a little fear of elevators and heights, being up on the 67th floor is a tad bit scary.
We flew Porter (the flight was a short 40 minutes from Toronto) and we stayed at the Roosevelt hotel which has a great central location at a great price. One of the highlights of the trip was visiting the Kate Spade store in Soho and I couldn’t pass up a pair of pink glittery heels.
I’ve included some picture highlights below.
This is how Pink the Town travels. Pink luggage of course!

If you haven’t been to New York yet, I highly suggest booking a trip. I especially liked going this time of year when the city is decked out in holiday decorations. There are Christmas trees and lights everywhere and the window displays are incredible.
It’s been 30 days since I started the Philips PureRadiance 30-Day Challenge and I’m excited to share the results! I’ve been wanting to try out a Sonic Cleansing System for a while now. As a girl who LOVES to wear makeup, I know the importance of a good face washing ritual and I knew this would up the ante on my regular routine.
The new Philips PureRadiance Facial Cleansing System comes in this adorable blush colour and features 2 speeds. It’s said to be 10 times more effective than hand-cleansing at removing makeup and removes more dead skin cells than manual cleansing. The sophisticated system has a skin zone timer that alerts you every 20 seconds when it’s time to rotate to the three key areas of your face. It comes with a stand for charging and allows for up to 30 uses with one charge. There are three brush heads available (normal, sensitive and exfoliating) depending on your preference and skin type.
When it comes to testing out new products, I’m more inclined to continue using something if I see results right away (I’m impatient like that). And I can safely say that I noticed a difference after my first time using the Philips PureRadiance Cleansing System. My skin felt smoother after the first use. You really do feel like your skin has been buffed and deep cleaned in a way that regular hand cleaning just can’t deliver. I also have really dry skin (especially in the winter) and normally at this time of year I’m battling through dry patches on my nose and forehead on a daily basis. This month, I’ve noticed that I don’t have any dry patches. The brush sloughs off dead skin cells and also helps serum and cream absorb better.
Overall, the results have lead to smoother, more moisturized skin. I also like the feeling of buffing out lines and wrinkles. I’m now more motivated to take more time washing my face since I can feel and see the results. I’ll definitely continue to use the Philips PureRadiance Cleansing System and I’m excited to try it out with different kinds of cleansers and exfoliators. If you’ve been eyeing Sonic Cleansers for a while now it’s the perfect time to drop some hints to the loved ones in your life that it’s on your Christmas wish list!
Have you tried this cleansing system or any of the other ones on the market yet? I’d love to hear about your experiences in the comments below!
