Marc Jacobs for Diet Coke Ad Campaign

How adorable are these Marc Jacobs for Diet Coke ads?! Featuring models clad in pieces from the designer’s Spring 2013 collection, the ads are part of the “Sparkling Together for 30 Years” campaign that marks the brand’s anniversary in Europe. And while Jean Paul Gaultier’s Diet Coke ad campaign is still my absolute favourite, I still love these cute and quirky photos and bottles! Hope I can get my hands on a bottle or two while they are still available in Europe.

Diet Coke by Jean Paul Gaultier Ads

I don’t know about you, but I adore these cheeky Diet Coke by Jean Paul Gaultier ads! Took me a second to realize what was going on, but after a second look, I couldn’t stop smiling at the silliness of these ads. Gaultier-designed limited edition Diet Coke bottles have got to be my fave since the Missoni print last year, and I love that JPG had a good sense of humour to pose for these ads. Who knew he had such great gams!?

Happy Birthday, Hip and Urban Girls!

When The Hip & Urban Girl Lisa invited me to HUG’s first year blog anniversary, my initial reaction was shock. They’ve only been around for 1 year??? Seems like I’ve known the partners in crime Lisa and Wendy forever! For a while now, I’ve been a loyal HUG reader, and have always wanted to attend one of their many networking parties/events. And what better occasion than a birthday?

The party was held at SCHOOL – one of my fave places for brunch. Now, this is kind of detention I don’t mind at all! Baked goods bar awaited, and I didn’t waste any precious time digging into some yummy brownies and cookies. As with any networking event, there were lots of people to meet, and some old friends to hang out with. The Diet Coke Beauty Boost Van was on standby, and full of refreshments and awesome Joe Fresh  beauty goodies. I got a mini mani, and a swipe of the most-coveted fuschia lipstick (as seen on Flare’s July cover), which I picked up for myself over the weekend.

All in all, the Hip & Urban Girls threw one hell of a party! Not too bad for one-year olds. Here’s wishing them many (many) more years of stylish adventures! And if you still haven’t discovered their kick-ass website, make sure to check it out. And maybe I’ll see you at their next fab event!

Don’t Miss – This Month in Toronto!

The Bay x Topshop and Topman Pop-up
Queen St. West and Soho Street (parking lot)
June 17th (noon-8pm), June 18th (10am-8pm), June 19th (10am-5pm)

For all of you Toronto shopping addicts, The Bay is bringing Topshop right to your doorstep. Well, kinda. As we’ve reported before, Topshop will be coming to Canada in the fall. But if you just can’t wait that long, get your credits cards ready – Topshop and Topman pop-up shops will be…erm…popping up this summer!

This weekend, the first 200 customers, will receive a limited-edition canvas bag (each day), and the most stylish shopper will not only win tickets to the official The Bay Yorkdale VIP launch party (in September), but will also walk away with a $500 Topshop shopping spree (courtesy of The Bay). Not to mention that you’ll get to shop the fave Brit retailer without having to board a transatlantic flight. I say, not too shabby.
