Park Hyatt Maldives, Hadahaa: Part I

park hyatt maldives hadahaa review photos hyatt gold platinum diamond member free nights
We recently returned from a dream of a trip to the Maldives, during which we were incredibly fortunate to be hosted by the Park Hyatt Maldives, Hadahaa. The entire experience was absolutely unforgettable - words simply fail when tasked with conveying the beauty that was so vividly present all around us, so this post (and the ones that will follow) are going to be quite photograph heavy...but I'm sure you won't mind ;)

Everlane Luxe Wool Square Turtleneck

Everlane Luxe Wool Square Turtleneck Review Photos Sizing Information
Just in time for the chilly weather that's come our way over the past few days, Everlane has released a few new additions to its Luxe Wool Sweater collection. The "Luxe Wool" fabric is an ultra-fine knit of ultra-finely spun merino wool fibers, which results in a finished fabric that is soft and warm with just the right amount of stretch and a lovely drape. I picked up a few items from the collection to add to my autumn wardrobe. First up is the Luxe Wool Square Turtleneck, which I got in size 00 and Heather Grey.

Chanel Rouge Allure Ink Collection, Fall 2016 | Swatches & Review

 Okey dokey you guys. Chanel is bringing out the big guns with its release of the all new Rouge Allure Ink ($37 for 0.20 oz.) for Fall 2016. From the promo photos, I thought the colour range would be kind of mundane...but I couldn't have been more wrong! I clearly got lulled into a false sense of security by the disappointing Rouge Coco Stylo. Rouge Allure Ink is anything BUT a disappointment. So far I haven't found anywhere online where these are available, but I'll be sure to include links once I do!

Oribe Haircare Favourites

 I'm pretty basic when it comes to haircare in general - I usually use John Frieda or Organix shampoo and conditioner and the let my hair air dry. Recently, however, I've been trying out a few new items from Oribe to incorporate into my routine, and I've been loving all of them for different purposes. Long-time readers will know the experience of a product is equally important to me as the efficacy of the product when evaluating its quality and deciding whether or not to purchase. It stood to reason that I wanted the products I incorporated into my haircare routine to provide more than a utilitarian function - I also wanted them to elevate my experience of doing my hair from mundane to a special ritual. Oribe's products have been home runs for me on both fronts, as I've found the ones I've tried thus far to both be highly effective and to make the process of doing my hair a pleasure that I savour!

My Kat Burki Skincare Routine: Restorative Dual Acid Peel, Rose Hip Revitalizing Serum, Vitamin C Intensive Face Cream & Complete B Vital Hydration Mask

Kat Burki Skincare Review Rose Hip Revitalizing Serum Vitamin C Intensive Face Cream Complete B Vital Hydration Face Mask Dual Acid Restorative Peel
Space NK's Autumn Beauty Event (preview here) has officially begun for N.Dulge members, and in honor of it, I'm sharing a post that I've been very excited about for quite awhile on Kat Burki skincare! Kat Burki's skincare line is one of the very well-kept secrets of the beauty world: txhe formulas are cruelty-free and are chock full of ingredients derived from naturally occurring sources and optimized in order to achieve maximum potency and bioavailability in the final form of the ingredients, which means that they are in a form that is most readily absorbed by your skin cells.  

The resulting product formulas are a compelling blend of naturally derived bioavailable actives and cutting edge laboratory optimized ingredients which pack a serious skincare punch and feel like an absolute treat to use. Kat Burki's PR team hooked me up with a skincare regime of my choosing, which I've been testing for over a month now and which I've been chomping at the bit to tell you about. Keep reading for all the deets!

 Everlane is keepin' 'em comin' with the fresh new kicks - the latest in their Autumn/Winter starting lineup is the Modern Oxford ($175), which comes in an array of four tasty colours that are all perfect for the chilly months ahead.
