Eyewear You Wear

You're in a crunch. You've been told you need glasses! Mom and Dad's insurance doesn't cover you anymore... What do you do?

You could go to the dollar store and buy a magnifying glass and carry it in your purse...
You could borrow your grandmother's...
You could take a hiatus from reading or driving or anything else that requires any kind of eye focus...

... or you could log on to firmoo.com, choose a frame, plug in your prescription, and get your first pair for the cost of shipping - around 8$. 

When Firmoo contacted me to try out their product, I was pleasantly surprised at how efficient and prompt they were in mailing me my pair. Their website is user friendly, allowing customers to virtually try on glasses by uploading a photo of themselves. I chose a pair of tortoise wayfarers. My friends have all complimented me on them, and I was happy to tell them about what awesome deals Firmoo has.

Up close and personal: KMA's space


Since I started my blog last June, I've received quite a number of 'show me your room' requests. I've never been overly comfortable with having people in my bedroom (duh!), but since this topic seems to be trending - I figured I'd share some tid-bits with you guys. 

I don't really have a theme going on... it's basically just a 21 year old collection of things I love.

Get Fresh Faced and FABULOUS with Korres

When E came back from her summer vacation in Greece two years ago, she talked about a product she had stumbled upon by a Greek company called 'Korres'. Some time later, I received a gift package with a Korres Lip Butter, and that's when the romance began. 

I have always known that skin care is by far the most important aspect of maintaining long-lasting beauty. You could wear a ton of makeup, but at the end of the day, if the skin that it is applied on is not treated well, it will suffer. I'm a strong believer in investing in gentle and natural skincare products and starting good skincare habits at a very young age. When choosing a cream, it is important to learn about the philosophy of the creator. By this, I mean that the ingredients chosen must have passed the test of time. There is nothing synthetic about Korres, which is why I trust it and endorse it completely. 

I started using one of their many skincare lines over the Christmas holidays and it has been a pleasure to keep up the routine until now.

Montreal Fashion Week 24: Highs and Lows

As Montreal Fashion Week came to an end, I thought about my week and how absolutely blessed I was to have been able to attend such an awesome event. In retrospect, I realize that as much as I enjoyed having the opportunity to sit in the front row and observe the designers upcoming collections, it was the environment and meeting new people with similar interests as me that I loved most.

Défilé Automne / Hiver: Ralph Leroy

"OMG"...

... are the only words that come to mind after seeing Ralph Leroy's unbelievable show last night, entitled "Kenscoff". The mix of fashion and dance certainly made for an unforgettable one. As I sat in the front row alongside a surprising guest (Will Smith!) I thought to myself 'this is my scene'. Leroy's whimsical show included everything from beautiful fairy-like dresses to tailored suits.

Montreal Fashion Week - Mélissa Nepton

As Montreal prepared to host its 24th fashion week, I got ready to attend a week full of runways and fun at the stunning Arsenal Gallery. Yesterday I had the absolute pleasure of attending the MFW opening cocktail, followed by shows by Pedram Karimi, Mélissa Nepton, Nadya Toto and Thomas Collection. 

Of all the designers I saw, Mélissa Nepton and Nadya Toto certainly impressed me most!

New & Exciting

Hi everyone,

This is just a quick post to let you know that I'm back (yay!) and that allthingskma.com will be on content overload this coming week! I'm very excited to announce that I will be covering Montreal Fashion Week! I was fortunate enough to receive a pass that will allow me to go to all of the shows from Monday to Thursday. Looking forward to sharing the latest in Montreal fashion and design with you all!

On another note, the reason I've been so absent lately is because I was out of a camera. Luckily, today I treated myself to a brand new Canon Rebel... just in time to take some awesome photos at MFW! 

See you soon!
