When it comes to anything beauty-related, I love erring on the more natural side. It’s a lovely tendency to have in many respects because everything is generally low-key and speedy for me, but I do have those moments when I wish I could be a bit more adventuresome while still feeling true to myself. I recently teamed up with Shoppers Drug Mart to do just that, creating manicures anyone can do (honestly, if I can, then anyone can!) that up the style factor while still maintaining that discrete, pared-down aesthetic that feels true to me.

I'd venture to guess that my caffeine addiction is pretty apparent now that today's post is officially wrapping up my But First, Coffee series with Glitter Guide. From laid-back CaffĂ© Cittadella to charming Beaucoup Bakery to today's jaunt to the hip Elysian Room on West 5th, my hood of Fairview is literally brimming with amazing cafes and bakeries. I'm a big believer in not giving up all of your vices (being perfect is boring), so while I'm on top of my nutrition and fitness, I just can't quit coffee. It really is one of my great loves in life and I'm so happy I got to share some of my favourite local haunts, including today's last visit! Click through to read more about the Elysian Room after the jump and why it's an especially amazing place to get your caffeinated fix from!
