Hollace Cluny / Furniture Design

I recently visited a lovely interior/furniture design shop downtown Toronto.
Hollace Cluny is located near Rosedale station for all you Torontonians :p
I had to go to a few furniture design shops throughout the city, discovering
and looking at new designs for research. Here are just some snapshots from
my visit to the store. The staff were extremely friendly and willing to help!

I've seen this light fixture in Dwell magazine.
I'm pretty sure this is by Lindsey Adelman. They had another piece by her
on the first floor, which was interesting as well, but I couldn't really get a
nice photo of it alone >< It's called the 'Clamp Lamp' if you're interested :p

I fell in love with this white marble console table, then I touched it...
and fell in love LOL :p I love the smooth texture and the marble design.

This lovely lighting piece was placed above the stairs to the second floor <3 p="p">It was a bit too high for me to see the designer/price >< :( should have asked!
Even the texture of the wall is lovely :p
Hope you guys enjoyed this random most :p

This weeks lovely design is inspired by the scarf on the right taken from Zipia.net :p
I originally wanted to use a pastel green for the leaves, but because I couldn't find the
right shade of grey, the pastel green didn't show up as well as I had thought ><

I still really love this design :D hope you guys do too :)

Naruko Defense BB Sunscreen SPF50++++

I've been looking for a sunscreen with a higher SPF.
I wanted something with a light coverage and if you have
clear to good skin, then this BB sunscreen is for you. This
BB Sunscreen will not cover any post acne marks. I noticed
that it helped to control the oil on my face throughout the day.
This makes a great primer and sunscreen in one. It also helped
to even out my skin a little, making it seem a bit brighter.

This sunscreen will probably only work for fair-light skin tones.
It has a pink tint and is a bit watery at first (Aqua being the first
ingredient in the product). The coverage is very sheer... only you
would notice the difference :p

It comes in a small and slim tube, which is great for travel.
I don't like products that are bulky and huge with only 30ml
of product >< they take up room and is sometimes unnecessary.

Will I buy this again?
Maybe in the summer... I'm still trying to look for a more natural option,
with more physical sunscreen as to chemical sunscreens, but this is a pretty
good primer for my skin and have been loving it so far for the past 2-3 weeks :)
