'Diary' Launch Giveaway - Contest Closed - April 22, 2016

What better way to celebrate the start of something new than with a giveaway?!

With just over 2 weeks left until I finally get to meet my (still unnamed!) little man, I think now is the perfect time to give away some of my favorite things!

With so much to celebrate it's only fitting that I make this giveaway really worth your while! Here's what's in it for you:
  • Kate Spade confetti iPhone 6 case 
    • ...because a girl can never have too many phone cases, especially one that screams 'celebration'!
  • Refresh Botanicals BB Cream (50ml) and Eye + Face Makeup Remover (200ml)
    • One of my favorite all natural, local Toronto brands! 
  • Orofluido Asia Zen Control Shampoo (200ml) and Conditioner (200ml)
    • These products make your hair feel like buttah! They're ultra nourishing, smell amazing, and are especially great for dry hair or frazzled ends.
  • MAC lipstick in Faux and lip pencil in Whirl 
    • Perfect if you need a little help nailing Kylie K's flawless natural pout.
That's over $150 in amazing products! If this doesn't make you feel pretty from head to toe, I don't know what will!

To enter, all you have to do is:

1.  follow me on social media (Instagram  or Twitter  or Facebook)
2. upload a selfie or picture that makes you feel beautiful (happy, silly, proud, etc.) 
3. hashtag it #BirdfaceBeautiful. 

Bonus entries for each additional social media platform post!

A winner will be chosen at random on Friday April 22, 2016. This contest is open to Canadian and US residents.

Good luck and stay gorgeous!

Diary - A New Chapter

I've decided to launch a new section on Birdface Collection called 'Diary'. This area will be slightly more personal and will encompass all of the highs and lows as I learn to navigate motherhood. I'm keeping this area separate from my fashion and beauty posts as I want you to have the option to read it (or not! lol) 

I'd love to hear your thoughts and opinions about the posts I create here, so please be bold, open and honest so we can all learn together!

xo,
Dana

And I'll Be There If You Fall Off


Every now and then, life throws you a curve ball. A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of finally getting diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes. I say finally, not because I was expecting it or suffering from symptoms but because with only 8 weeks left in my pregnancy, it seemed strange to wait so long to make a potentially crucial change in my diet. Luckily, I'm borderline so my blood sugar hasn't be spiking regularly and since I'm a healthy eater, it hasn't affected Bump or I.

Counting The Stars + Scars


Whether you're pregnant or not, you may (like most woman) have or have a fear or getting stretch marks...

Take Off Your Disguise + You'll See Sunsets + Starlit Skies


2016 has plans to be the biggest most life altering year of my life. Am I excited? Definitely. Scared? A little. But more than that, I’m gearing up for quite the challenge. 

None Of The Colors Ever Light Up Anymore In This Hole


Baby it's cool outside and I know what you're thinking... You'd rather wear your sweater/jogger ensemble, burrito-ed in your Snuggie to work then a skirt. 
Do I blame you? HELL NO! 
There's nothing better that getting wrapped up in a comfy marshmallow of clothing but lets be honest, that just wont fly at the office. So what is a working girl to do, you ask? I say, roll out of bed, dust off your pantyhose and grow a pair! 

And The Bells Are Ringing Out For Christmas Day


'Tis the season for eggnog lattes and toasts with friends. For reflection on the previous year and how much (or little) you've grown as a person... and the anticipation for next one and everything that lies ahead. Everyone loves a new beginning. 
Even though it's getting chilly and your fashion sense is seriously cramped by your giant parka, it really is hard to hate the final countdown before the holidays.
