No Parka Needed

Sweater – Marshall’s // Denim – Old Navy // Jacket – Neon Rose // Boots – Olang // Sunglasses – Windsor Store

We’ve been riding on a wave of warmer weather for the past week and I couldn’t be happier. It’s as if Spring is almost here, but I’m not buying it. Because I know that we still have at least 2-3 months worth of winter to battle through before the sun pulls through and fully melts away all of the snow. In the mean time though, I’m definitely planning on taking advantage of these sunny and warm days by shedding the parka and donning some fun coats that I had put away for quite awhile.

Grey Scale

Blouse – The Fable // Pants – Sanctuary // Belt – Moschino // Shoes – Zara // Jacket – RW&Co. // Scarf – MUJI

It’s a new year, so you’d expect a new me right? Wrong. I’m not one to make resolutions so you’re going to get the same me. But although I’m not much of a resolutioner, I do have some changes/improvements in mind that I want to make for 2017. Like everyone else, I’ve done the whole resolutions thing in the past. And as we already all know, they don’t stick. I’ve come to learn that singular goals aren’t exactly feasible because they aren’t measurable within a year. Instead, I’ve embraced the bigger picture and have set aspirations that lead to a more positive lifestyle in hopes of improving my overall life, sanity, and health.

Banff Travel Diary: WestJet x McCafe

Banff Travel Diary With McCafe

Cozy up in front of the fireplace because this is going to be a long one.

If you’ve been following me on Instagram, then you’ll know that I recently went on a trip with my girls (Mel, Tee, Nina & Qing) to Banff. And you may or may not know, but McCafe has recently partnered with WestJet to now serve freshly brewed McCafe Premium Roast coffee on all flights, and we were invited to help celebrate the partnership. Now you may be thinking to yourself “but Vic, we never see you drinking McCafe, only coffee from hipster cafes.” And you’re right, I do showcase many different cafes across Toronto and my travels, but McCafe has always been the go-to since Day 1, especially when it comes to travel or on-the-go fuel.

An #MDVPHoliday Staycation

December 21, 2016

We are mere days away from Christmas, which means tons of time off with friends and family. I know that this time of the year can be quite chaotic for everyone (heck I always feel like a chicken running around with its head cut-off), so what better way to destress than to plan a little staycation in the city? Team #MDVP (Mel, Dave, Vic, and Peter) decided to go on a little staycation of our own this past weekend and wanted to share our experience with you. Literally within a weekend, here is how we enjoyed our city at its finest and played “vacay” without ever having to drive outside of the city limits.

Colour, It’s a Thing

Colour, It's a Thing

Sweater – MissPAP // Denim – Revolve // Jacket & Hat – Bench. // Booties – Vince

Yes you heard me, colour is definitely a word that’s in my vocabulary. I don’t often wear colour, but when I do, I like to be fun with my options. Thank god that patches and embroidery are a thing again because now I can play with colour without having to commit too hard to anything. You most definitely will not be seeing bright red sweaters on me any time soon. But maybe some red embroidered flowers here and there. That can be a thing.
