So fresh, so clean

Going green doesn’t have to mean giving up luxury. Canadian beauty e-retailer Fresh Face partners with local boutique Health Hut to host Green + Good, an all-natural beauty pop-up shop at the Gladstone Hotel (1214 Queen West) Thursday to Sunday (May 1 to 4). Vendors include Aime by Monica Mei, Province Apothecary, Ella’s Botanicals and One Love Organics. Visit greenandgood.ca for more information.

The prom you wish you had

Hated prom? Loved prom? Either way, relive your glory days at Worn Fashion Journal’s Secondhand Prom to celebrate the book launch of The Worn Archive on Saturday (May 3) at Adelaide Hall (250 Adelaide West). The party goes down at 9 pm and ends at 2 am, so you have just enough time to make curfew. Prom attire is preferred but not required, in case you’re still too cool for school. Tickets are $15 from Type Books (883 Queen West, 416-366-8973, typebooks.ca) and at the door.

Bling for boobs

Indie jewellery shop Elle Hardware (695 Queen West, 416-360-0333, ellehardware.com) is donating 10 per cent of May sales to Rethink Breast Cancer, which supports young adults affected by breast cancer through education and research. We suggest local designer Liana Marie’s elegant Kensington necklace ($124.99) and Orelia’s Crystal Pave stud earrings ($24.99).
