I’ve already been a bride, but like most girls I’m still pretty fascinated with the whole wedding process. I still watch the programs on finding the perfect dress, still check out wedding dresses in boutique windows, and I often think about how I would have loved having “this” or “that” when I got married.

I had seen the Wifey Favourite Tee from deighan design online, and I loved it.

It can be dressed up or dressed down, but I knew I wanted to dress it up with my favourite tulle skirt from Space 46 Boutique.

In these photos I’m wearing a size small and it fit perfectly, but it is definitely a slim fit style shirt.

How cute is this shirt? It would be a great gift for a bride to be, or anyone who’s married.

deighan design also has some pretty fabulous wedding accessories like these personalized hangers – where were these when I got married? I would have loved to have one!




Their personalized hangers and cake toppers are actually created by hand which was pretty impressive! Otherwise many items are ready to ship, but lots of things can also be personalized.

They have everything from personalized bridal party robes, to bachelorette party accessories!

Review of NeoStrata’s Vitamin C Concentrate

Neo strata vitamin c concentrate review sparkleshinylove



I’ve always wanted to try Vitamin C capsules because I have heard they do amazing things for your skin! NeoStrata was giving away lots of their skincare essentials at Fashion Week in Toronto last month, and as soon as I saw the capsules I was excited and pretty much pounced on the NeoStrata representative.

Previously I used an amazing NeoStrata cream as part of my skincare regimin even, so I wasn’t hesitant about using one of their products.

The NeoStrata Vitamin C Concentrate capsules are to be used twice a day, and they are easy to twist open. Once the top is twisted off, the Vitamin C serum rushes out immediately so you have to be careful!



NeoStrata vitamin c concentrate review sparkleshinylove



There is no smell to the serum at all, but the way it feels on your face is crazy! It almost feels like applying a primer, but it’s smoother than that. Once you smooth it over your face and neck it feels like you have covered your face in a mask. It feels exactly as soft as I would want my face to feel. It would take about 20 minutes before it felt like the Vitamin C sunk in. Each capsule contains 10% Vitamin C, so it’s a good place to start with since capsules can contain up to 20%. It’s very easy to irritate your skin with Vitamin C as well so you have to be careful!






It’s also important to use the capsule immediately after opening it because Vitamin C can degrade quickly when it is exposed to light or air.

The capsules are for all skin types, and recommended for ages 30+ to repair loss of raidience, and to promote skin clarity and elasticity.

After using them for a week I didn’t see any major results, but I am definitely buying more capsules. I just loved the way it felt on my skin, and I didn’t feel like I needed to add a night or morning cream with it because my skin felt moisturized. The only issue I found was that I needed time to let it soak into my skin, and that is hard if you are pressed for time in the morning.

Overall it felt like a bit of luxury for my face, and that’s not a bad thing!
