CTV Morning Live`s Favourite Things at the CORE!

By Allison Onyett, Nov 30


On November 26, 2015 the CTV Morning Live filmed their Favourite Things Segment with CORE Stylist Phaedra Godchild of Styleista. Our audience woke up in the wee hours of the morning to be on set for 4:00am - but it was worth it! They each took home a collection of holiday favourites found in the CORE. 

To watch the full segment, click HERE.

Here are the items that topped the list this year:

1) Lavender Collection from L'Occitaine

This is the perfect for that special someone who needs to unwind this holiday season. The lavender used in the collection is actually sourced from farmer’s cooperatives in Haute Provence, France.

Inside the set you’ll find the lavender foaming bubble bath, Bonne Mere lavender soap, the lavender sachet to keep your drawers smelling incredible, the lavender candle and their famous lavender hand cream.

And it`s also a gift that gives back - $10 from every sale is donated to Dress for Success - an organization that helps prepare underemployed and unemployed women for  the corporate world by providing them with the right clothes for the job. 

2) Elfie Selfie from H&M

This glittery sequined sweater is perfect for the season and is part of the H&M holiday campaign with Katy Perry. It’s definitely one of our favourites from the collection with its image of half of an elf and the words “Elfie Selfie” on the front. What we also love about it is you can easily dress it up with a cute black skirt or dress it down with jeans depending on what holiday party you’re headed to. And it’s a great price point at under $25.00.

3) Quo Back to Basics Eye Shadow from Shoppers Drug Mart

 

This item is sure to help you look you’re very best at all your holiday events. The Quo Back to Basics Eye Shadow Palette in New Nudes and Modern Smokey includes 12 eye shadow shades in one handy compact for everything you need to get the perfect nude or smokey eye.

 

4) Thomas Sabo Anniversary Diamond Charm Bracelet from Land & Sea

The delicate bracelet features the Thomas Sabo signature collection charm with crushed diamonds that sparkles and shimmers like a snowflake in the light.

What we really love about this piece is how easily you can personalize it. Thomas Sabo has hundreds of charms to choose from making it easy to start her off with a few, and then keep the gift going for years to come for birthdays, anniversaries, holidays and special occasions.

 

5) Non-Iron Women`s Dress Shirt from Brooks Brothers

This women’s shirt features a fitted silhouette, and slightly tailored for a slimmer appearance, and who doesn’t like that, and it comes in a plethora of colours.  It’s perfect for wearing with a suit to the office or jeans for a preppy look. And the best part is, you can just toss it in the wash, shake out the wrinkles and it`s ready to go.

 

6)  Yoga Mat from Lolë 

If you’re not sure what to get your fitness junkie, we recommend the Lolë yoga mat.  This PVC-free, chloride-free sunny yellow yoga mat is both plush and easy to work out on because of its adhesive surface that grips the floor to help you get grounded in your poses.

 

7) Vanilla Coconut Gift Set from Rocky Mountain Soap Company

Based in the heart of the Canadian Rockies, Rocky Mountain Soap Company handcrafts 100 per cent natural and toxin free goods for the body. We love this brand not only because it’s local, but because all products are created with 100 per cent natural and organic ingredients and Non GMO. This season, we are falling for their new custom hand painted watercolour gift boxes perfect for holding their holiday collection.

In this box you’ll find a Mini Vanilla Coconut Body Wash, Mini Vanilla Coconut Body Butter, Honey, Oats & Cocoa Butter Bar Soap, Vanilla Coconut Lip Butter, and a Soy Candle.

8) Christmas Imagine by Holt Renfrew

Last but certainly not least, It’s Christmas Imagine By Holts. Here we have a collection of gifts perfect for stocking stuffers or under the tree from everybody’s favourite, Holt Renfrew.

1) Ultra-soft fur is from the Holt Renfrew collection

2) Links of London Bracelet

3) Joe Malone Frangrance Collection

4) Marvis Italian Toothpaste

5) Jack Black Travellers Set

6) Christian Louboutin Nail Polish

7) Rebecca Minkoff Card Carrier

8) Lucia Number 25 Candle

9) Christian Lacroix Note Book

10) Felony Phone Case

11) Wolford Stockings
