Lexus Masterclass Collaboration #LexusIS in Toronto

We spent the day with Lexus Canada to learn about the #LexusIS and take it for a test drive around the city hitting Toronto landmarks for the Lexus Master Class! The cars were red, blue, silver and taupe and all together we looked like we were in the movie, Fast and the Furious. The 2017 Lexus IS is all about a sports sedan that is both luxurious and sporty at the same time with a design that is very driver focused and intuitive. The interior is designed so that you don't have to move your head around the car, the sound system is da bomb, the interior is very swaggy and the the air control is controlled by touch. It's like magic! You can also drive the car in Eco Mode or Sports Mode depending on your mood. All in all,  it's one of the smoothest rides out there and one of the safest cars on the road with their pre-collision system and other elements of Lexus Safety System Plus. Lexus is known for their one of a kind "Takumi" craftsmanship, which refers to absolute mastery of a craft. During our day, we were super inspired because we drove our Lexus IS cars to Toronto landmarks, met with artists who are creating brave design or pushing the boundaries in their field and truly exemplifiying the values that drive Lexus when it comes to their vehicles.

The first stop was with one of our good friends, Ania from Triarchy Denim at the Soho House Toronto. Ania and her brothers are creating innovative denim that uses sustainable fabrics and are a socially responsible clothing brand that uses minimal water to make jeans. She made our jaws drop when she told us that 46,000 glasses of water are used to make 1 pair of jeans. We could see how sustainable clothes can be just as high fashion and high quality as other lines and that they are creating environmental awareness and bringing a real cool vibe factor to the fashion iIndustry. We are proud that they are Canadian and leading the way for so many brands in the future of production and trend. Lexus is also committed to the environment and are in fact, the leader in hybrid technology among luxury automotive manufacturers.

Our second stop was at the Cheese Boutique (45 Ripley Avenue) where we met with Cheese Master Afrim Pristine whose family opened the famous store in 1970 and he is obsessed with Batman! He fed us the most delicious lunch of prepared foods, brought us on a tour of his cheese cave and explained to us how he invests in cheeses instead of real estate. His passion and love for his store was a super inspiring experience and we will definitely be going back. He has one of the largest pieces of cheese in the world hanging in his cheese cave that he let us taste, which was really cool. Afrim even has cheese aging in his cheese cave for Ben Affleck (aka Batman) for the next time he is filming in Toronto.

The third stop was to our friend's studio, iconic celebratory photographer George Pimentel who is one of the most talented photographers we know. George's studio used to be his father's studio and he still has the original prop cabinet filled with all of the toys and religious relics that remind him of his family history. He is always travelling to the hottest parties all of the world including Cannes, the MET Gala, but he still enjoys taking photos of people in his neighbourhood. George is inspired by the less- is- more approach with getting the shot in one shot. He likes to meet celebrities and photograph them in less than 30 seconds while capturing their true essence. George and Lexus have both been in the Canadian market for over 25 years mastering the craft in their field. We had the honour of being photographed in his studio and he always puts a big smile on my face!

Our fourth stop was a drive to The Distillery District where the new Spirit of York Distillery Co. (12 Trinity Street, Toronto) just opened. We met with master Simon Ho who is the master of distilling vodka and gin and a notable Toronto mixologist. He is a visionary behind the brand's Bitters Library where he made us delicious concoctions including a strawberry pepper one for me that mixes amazing with tequila. We taste tested his 97% proof vodka and gins and he is a true visionary in his field!

We were then driven to our last stop of the day...to the new Toronto hot spot, Cafe CanCan (88 Harbord Street, Toronto) that just opened by famous chef Victor Barry. We were surrounded by gorgeous flamingo and floral wallpaper, ate the most delicious meal of white asparagus and gnocchi while sipping on pink rose. Victor is all about hospitality, Lexus’ core value of "omotenashi," which is the Japanese art of providing exceptional hospitality but even more then that – it’s as though we were guests in our own home. This is something that Lexus believes strongly in - , an experience like no other. We will definitely be back for that yummy soul food and we can't wait to drive our #LexusIS for an entire week in Toronto!

Are you the #RightTWIX or #LeftTWIX ?

People always ask us... how do we get along so well being identical twins? and do we ever fight? Well, we are similar, yet different and love the same things! But one thing’s for sure, having our favourite sides has definitely helped our sisterhood and friendship. It allowed us not to argue as much because we have always had our dedicated sides. When we share a TWIX, Cailli is always the #RightTWIX and Sam is always the #LeftTWIX. Here is why Sam always chooses the left side and Cailli always chooses the right side! 
 photo Instagram1 and blog-TWIX-beckermanblog-girls-lefttwix-righttwix_zpskaw4csgj.jpg
Sam- Even though we are identical twins we still have our differences. Especially when putting on makeup! I like to do my eye makeup first on the left. Cailli always starts with her right eye first. But obviously my way is the better way... lol! At least my eye liner goes on straight!
 photo Instagram3 and blog-TWIX-sambeckerman-lefttwix-makeup-beckermanblog_zpswwo7v30t.jpg
Cailli- Well, I always sleep on the right side of the bed. It's the better side for sure! We travel a lot and sometimes we end up in a hotel that only has one bed and we need to share. Instead of fighting about it... we figure out the situation really fast. Who knows, maybe we were on these sides in the womb! lol! Hahah! So why do I sleep on the right side? Because it super comfy and cozy and it's the right side! And it's the BEST SIDE!
 photo Blog2-TWIX-caillibeckerman-beckermanblog-righttwix_zpsp5xmkrre.jpg
Sam- When we are on photoshoots, we always ask hairstylists what side (left or right) looks better for our hair, for a side flip, ponytail or braid and they always tell me flip left. It just looks better with the shape of my face. And they tell Cailli to flip right. Who knows if they are really telling the truth... or just know how much we love our "SIDES"!

Cailli- We take a lot of photos and selfies together and Sam is 2.5 inches taller than me. First of all, that doesn't make her side any better, it just makes her look like a giant when she stands next to me. So, I always stand on her right...it just looks better and makes us look more the same height. It just feels right...get it? lol! 

Which side are you? Are you the #LeftTWIX or are you the #RightTWIX? Check out http://twixstudy.tumblr.com/ to help you decide!

We teamed up with Tiffany& Co. and The Hollywood Reporter/Billboard to host the #TiffanyHardWear Collection party in Toronto. All of our friends and media came to join us and celebrate! The whole collection is so gorgeous and super edgy. It was at the East Room in Toronto, Canada where the new collection was on display where everyone was sipping on champagne, eating delicious hor d'oeuvres, and trying on jewerly! The #TiffanyHardwear Collection is so rocker chic and lady-like at the same time. Lady Gaga is the face of their campaign, so it's a fearless and modern glam Collection! We're obsessed! Our favourite pieces are the Wrap necklace that has a wrecking ball and lock that hang gracefully from the chain, the, Wrap Bracelet, and the Ball Bypass Bracelet. We love layering jewelry and stacked the Ball rings and the Ball Dangle rings together. Here's some of our favourite looks...and us getting ready for the event with our glam squad.

Fun Fact:  During New York Fashion Week, we went to the Laurence and Chico presentation and were totally blown away! We love hearing about new Canadian designers and became fast friends with this duo! Today I'm wearing Laurence and Chico's tweed jacket that is encrusted with rainbow jewels all over! It's brilliantly designed with mesh, criss cross and a whole lotta badass. My bag is also made by my Canadian twin friends Byron and Dexter who make the chicest bags of them all. This is their new creation, the Demiranda bag where the three compartments hold everything. I'm obsessed how the zippers have both silver and gold teeth, if you look closely....OBSESSED!

Last Days at the Beach!

Last days at the Beach! We were inspired by Marilyn Monroe's last and final photoshoot on the beach from 1962 on the Santa Monica Pier. There is only one photographer who can capture the essence of Marilyn mixed with our kinda vibe... it's our amazing friend and super talented photographer Jaclyn Locke.  We are wearing CHANEL Spring 2017 collection mixed with Mikhael Kale.

H&M Spring 2017 #HMSTUDIO in Paris

The H&M show was last night in Paris and we joined them at their amazing collection! Pink, Black and White were the main colours of inspiration and the collection had a ballet/sporty feel. We fell in love with the long white dress, the pink parachute jackets, the LOVE sweaters and the slip on ballet slippers. The coolest thing was that it is a See now- Buy Now collection. So right after the runway show, the Pop up Shop was open to purchase goodies directly from the runway! It was sooo exciting!!!! The Collection launches today in H&M Stores worldwide, so make sure to pop in and get your pieces directly from the runway. The surprise guest last night was The Weeknd! He was incredible and we danced the night away in Paris with all of our friends and our runway pieces in one hand!
