#ROIMomDay

What a splendid day to celebrate mothers all over. From flower crowns to tasty ice pops, the one’s who mean the most to us were certainly treated like the royalty they are. 

A special thanks to everyone who helped make this event the success it was! 

Happy Mother’s Day!

Denim on denim on denim..

Here in Canada we have an unofficial uniform and it’s known as the ‘Canadian Tuxedo’. What per say is the ‘Canadian Tuxedo’ you may ask? We’re talking about denim on denim on denim. There’s a very fine line between pulling this bad boy off and looking like Justin and Britney circa their 2001 American Music Awards appearance (we highly suggest avoiding that one at all costs).

If you think this look is something you’d like to try and are looking for some inspiration, Manrepellar posted a pretty awesome break down on how to perfect this look on her website. We decided to take on this look at the office in lieu of her post.
 


What do you think? Would you ever rock the ‘Canadian tuxedo’? 

 

Earth Day Commitments

Yesterday was Earth Day and it got a lot of us in the office thinking about what we could do to help treat our Earth a little better.

We came up with some personal commitments based off of our bad habits. They may be small and simple changes, but by making these changes we can play a role in environmental protection the whole year round. 

Heather: “I will drink filtered water instead of buying water bottles.”

Jessie: “I will turn off all the lights in my apartment whenever I am leaving.”

Lolin: “I will boil the exact amount of water needed when I make tea.” 

Laura: “I will walk to work, use the toaster oven while cooking and pack reusable containers for my lunches.” 

Sara: “I will take the TTC to work instead of driving everyday.” 

Nicole: "Since the meat industry generates nearly one-fifth of the man-made greenhouse gas emissions worldwide, I will limit my meat consumption and go vegetarian for a day.”

Lauren: ”I will pack my lunches in reusable containers instead of ziploc bags.” 

Carrie: “I will turn all my electronics off by unplugging them or turning the power bar off if they’re not in use.” 

Denisa: "I will lower the heating in my house (it’s always on high!) in order to conserve energy."

Marybeth: "I will unplug all appliances, computers and power cords around the house when they’re not in use."

Jenna: "I will pack my lunch using a reusable lunch bag instead of plastic bags."

Alyssa: "I will turn the water off while brushing my teeth as well as reduce my shower time from 20 minutes to 10 minutes."

Sam: “I will receive and pay bills online, use Next Issue for magazine subscriptions, and get my coffee to go in a tumbler” 

Delphine: “I’m currently reading ‘Zero Waste Home’ by Bea Johnson”

 

 

Rita Ora: CROWNED!

​​This past Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards brought out all the top celebs, but there was one in particular that caught our eye! We’re not sure if it was the jaw-dropping dress, statement lip, sultry eyes or romantic waves but Rita Ora was sending out all sorts of good vibes. For that, here at ROI, we’ve officially crowned her with Best Overall Look of the night.

Since we’re all totally enamoured with her here at the office (isn’t she gorgeous!?), we’ve decided to dissect her look so it can be achieved in four simple steps:

image

Step 1First swipe The Body Shop Colour Crush EyeShadow in Smokin’ Hot across your lid to create a sultry smoky eye

Step 2Apply The Body Shop Super Volume Mascara to give an instant boost of volume to your lashes 

Step 3: Add a pop of colour to your lips. We love The Body Shop Colour Crush Lipstick in Red Siren (it’s matte just like Rita’s signature red lip!

Step 4: And lastly, use The Body Shop Rainforest Volumising Shampoo to add a little ‘oomph’ to those romantic waves 

Voila! Your look is complete and you’re ready for a night out!
