If you’ve been following me on social media (especially on Snapchat) you’ll know that I was briefly in Montreal this week for the Elle Quebec and Elle Canada Beauty Grand Prix Awards thanks to the lovely folks at PANDORA, who sponsored this year’s event. When it comes to the beauty world, the #ELLEBGP award is a very prestigious honour as the winners are selected by a group of 750 readers via a blind test. Everyone from Chanel to Aveeno gathered in the lovely Windsor ballroom yesterday morning for the award ceremony (and mimosas and breakfast).
I was invited to experience the award ceremony along with some of my favourite bloggers, Gabrielle Lacasse and Dahye Jung, as well as Janette Ewen, interior stylist and my kindred spirit. We had so much fun taking pictures at the PANDORA photo booth and getting our makeup done, thanks to the makeup artists onsite that PANDORA brought in especially for the occasion. I loved trying out all the stackable rings, necklaces and bracelets that were on display in the reception hall. My favourite were the Light as a Feather earrings that everyone graciously went home with in their gift bags – perfect for this fall-borderline-winter weather we’ve been having lately – at least my ears will be stylish when I rock my floor-length parka!
