Monday Musings (Spark Sessions)

Hello Gorgeous!
This past weekend was the annual Spark Sessions conference in Toronto, Canada. This conference is for fashion and beauty bloggers who would like to learn more about how to grow their blog audience while attracting brands. I admit I had been looking forward to this weekend for a few months now, and I left with more excitement than ever about my blog. I had the chance to meet some lovely bloggers, including one of my personal favourites Jenny from Crazy Style Love. The blogging community is very supportive and I had the privilege to meet so many great people this weekend. 

You will notice some changes to Teach In Fashion this week because I will be starting some weekly columns such as this one, which is Monday Musings. There will now be a Try This Tuesday, a How to Thursday, and a special Sunday School column on Sundays. I always love when you have a content idea so if there is a topic you would like to see on the blog, please send me a message or leave a comment.

Below is a recap of my amazing weekend at Spark Sessions.  You can see the sponsor list in the picture below, what an amazing group of companies that came together to make this event possible.

Benefit Cosmetics had the most lovely table display set up for us browse and try products at. The 'Porefessional' powder was definitely a favourite of mine because I have struggled with large pores since my teenage years. The Benefit team understands that every woman is beautiful and offers a wide range of products to meet all skin colours, tones, and needs. Stay tuned for a Try It Tuesday featuring one of my favourite makeup products ever (and yes it's from Benefit).

Vitabath offers luxury in a bottle. The shower gel and body lotion scents will tempt you to stay in the bath or shower longer.

This macaron display was just divine. The colour palette is so bright and fun, there was a lineup all day at this table to get a picture of these delectable desserts.

The MicroNail line offers an instant pedicure product, and an instant nail buffer product. I was very interested in the pedicure product because like many of us, I am on my feet all day. I will be looking for the MicroNail line at my local drugstore. The instant pedicure allows you to buff the areas of your feet that need extra attention before entering the shower. After your shower, you then can apply moisturizer if you like, and your feet will feel refreshed.

Did you know that the blue pot of Nivea creme has been around since 1911? That is remarkable! The Nivea line has changed and grown since then, but the blue pot of creme remains their best seller.  Next time you are in a local drugstore, take a look at the Nivea line, it will surprise you. The products are fabulous with a great price point.

These are some of the lovely ladies I had the chance to meet this weekend. Amanda the girl on the far left lives very close to me. I am sure we will be meeting on a regular basis.

Finally, here is my second day outfit. This skirt is from White House Black Market, and I received so many compliments on it. The fullness is so girly and fun. 

Thanks so much for reading! I hope you had a splendid weekend!
