A Winter Escape

Jacket – Gorski / Jeans – Lovers & Friends / Boots – Olang

Dang that pesky groundhog for predicting another 6 more weeks of winter! Although Toronto never really keeps any of the snow that falls to the ground, the temperature definitely proves otherwise. This past week has been brutal. Between the frigid cold temperatures, the crazy and nonstop snowstorms coupled together freezing rain, I have no care in the world to leave my house at all. I wouldn’t say no to hibernating like a bear!

Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

Valentine's Day Gift Guide

It’s almost that time of the year again! Besides Christmas and Lunar New Year, Valentine’s Day is one of my favourite celebrations. I don’t believe that you should be treating your loved ones any differently on February 14th—you really should be showering them with love all year round! But it never hurts to layer on the love a little more, right? With Valentine’s Day being only 4 days away, I hope that you’ve already got your gifts ready. And if not, don’t make it a habit to pick up just chocolates or flowers. Try changing it up and with different options. Below are some of my favourites for those amazing people in our lives!

Popping the Cherry

Popping the Cherry

Sweater – Reformation / Trousers – RWCO. / Jacket – Topshop / Shoes – Aldo / Hat – Zara

All puns aside, I seriously popped my cherry with colour and injected more of it into my life recently. If you’re been around for awhile, then you’ll know that I haven’t quite worn any colour outside of neutrals for the past few years. I swore off anything vibrant and stuck to the basic black, white, grey, brown, navy—essentially ‘safe’ colours. Why? Because it was easy to match the different pieces together. But what I learned was that being a blogger means that that’ll never matter because you rotate through your clothes so fast that you’ll rarely ever end up re-wearing the same things more than 2-3 times at most. Which also means that mixing and matching isn’t really a thing, at least for me that is.

A Staycation at Le Germain

A Staycation at Le Germain

A couple of weeks ago, P and I did a little staycation with Le Germain. It’s always the hardest to adjust back to the regular life immediately after the holidays so we felt that it would be nice to extend the vacation a little bit—all while in the city. The only other time that we’ve stayed at a Le Germain was back in July when we attended the Calgary Stampede with GMC. We had such a great stay that I instantly knew that our visit to the Toronto location would be just the same.

Portugal Travel Diaries: 10 Things to do in Sintra

Portugal Travel Diaries: 10 Things to do in Sintra

In less than a month’s time, P and I will be traveling back to Europe, but on the opposite side of the cost to explore Spain. Our upcoming trip has brought back a lot of memories from our Portugal adventure and I realized that I hadn’t yet shared my top 10 favourite things to do in Sintra! Sintra had to easily be one of our absolute favourite places to visit while in Portugal. If you haven’t already had a chance to check out our top 10 favourites for both Lisbon and Porto, I would also highly recommend that you give them a read. Both are astounding places to visit while in Portugal, but Sintra would definitely have to be my absolute favourite. Fair warning that there is lots of walking involved, so we would highly suggest that you wear a solid pair of running shoes and to bring lots of water with you. Granted, there are some forms of transportation (busses and tuktuks) that can take you from one destination to the other. But if your plan isn’t to shell out tons of money just to explore the island, then walking is your best friend. You’ll seriously get all of your steps in and more!
