Shifting a Shade this Fall with Clairol | Anticipating the Big Day!

In between being a full-time student, working part-time, making time for friends and family, going to events and running a blog and YouTube channel, life can be a little hectic at times. I'm always thinking one step ahead about all that needs to be done by a certain deadline and crossed off my to-do list. Despite having a busy schedule, I know the importance of making time for myself so that I can clear my mind and enjoy some downtime to feel refreshed and ready to tackle whatever is coming next. I recently had the great opportunity to partner with Clairol at Hair on the Avenue in Toronto with a "Shift A Shade" hair update, aimed at helping me put my best self forward. I will also have a one-on-one consultation with both a makeup artist, to discuss makeup techniques, and a professional stylist to find out what new trendy pieces I could incorporate into my wardrobe.

I am most excited to meet the professional team and hear their recommendations since I know I can learn a lot of tips and tricks in their presence. Despite being a beauty blogger, I am far from being an expert in the field - I am constantly taking in new information to discover what works for me and share my knowledge through my blog in the hopes that it can help or inspire my readers to try something new. I envision myself going slightly blonder since it is something I have been pondering for a while and see working with Luis Pacheco, a Clairol Consulting Colourist and owner of Hair On the Avenue, as the perfect opportunity to have any questions answered. The Clairol Nice n' Easy line has many shades to choose from, so it is nice to be getting a second opinion! My biggest concern with my face has always been concealing my redness so I'm also really looking forward to what the makeup artist will recommend for this particular issue. I wouldn't call myself particularly fashionable so having a stylist pick out an outfit that is a little more daring than my usual style is also something I am really looking forward to trying out.

Levels of anticipation are high leading up to the big day and I can't wait to share with you my experience via video and pictures! Stay tuned for a post in the coming weeks all about my time at Hair on the Avenue.
