Solid & Striped

May 8, 2017

Solid & Striped

T-Shirt – Peace Collective // Skirt – Banana Republic // Fishnets – Ardene // Jacket – Mackage // Slides – Public Desire // Sunglasses – Bonlook

If you’re a swimsuit collector, then you’ll know that Solid & Striped is the name of a fantastic brand. I’d give anything to be in a swimsuit right now considering how gloomy Toronto has been this past week. Unfortunately I’m in full on sweats as I write out this blog post (surprise, bloggers aren’t always impeccably dressed) but would kill to be back on the sunny beaches of Mexico.

My First Ever Helicopter Ride with Canadian Tire

May 5, 2017

My First Helicopter Ride

If you follow me on Instagram, then you’ll know that I recently had the pleasure of riding my first-ever helicopter with Canadian Tire. Being a major item to cross off on my bucket list, I immediately jumped at the opportunity when it landed in my inbox. Talk about an experience to last a lifetime!

Over the past few years since moving to Toronto, I’ve been renting, and living the renter life truly limits you to how much you can change up a space. Being someone else’s property, it’s not exactly easy to make modifications as you see fit. I can’t have the marble counter top of my dreams, or a beautiful aluminum back splash (but those will still remain my one-day goals). Although simple changes such as painting the walls and hanging up picture frames have always been an option, I always hesitated due to the fact that I have a dog, and there’s no way that I can keep him from running in and playing with the equipment. Which meant that the dream of adding some colour into my life was placed in the back burner.

9 White Hot Swimsuits for the Summer

I think that I’m permanently stuck in vacation mode, because ever since I came back from Mexico, I can’t seem to stop shopping online for swimsuits – even though I have no tropical vacations in the horizon. Though I can justify hanging out at Sugar Beach as a reason to buy myself some new swimsuits, can I not? To be fair, I haven’t pulled the trigger and made any purchases just quite yet, but my shopping carts on various sites are quite full and are begging to be checked out. We’ll have to wait and see how long I can resist for before I give into the temptation.

It’s Back! – The Nordstrom Warehouse Sale

April 11, 2017

It's Back! - The Nordstrom Warehouse Sale

Dress – For Love & Lemons (similar here and here) // Boots – 4th & Reckless

Bargain hunters rejoice! The Nordstrom Warehouse Sale is back and I had the opportunity to pre-shop it this past weekend and give you the low down on what’s available. In the past there was ample inventory for contemporary lines, but this time the designer offerings have been seriously improved as well. Sure there’s going to be some VINCE and Tory Burch to be found in the mix, but if you dig deep enough you’ll be able to unearth some Proenza Schouler, KENZO, Acne Studios, Simone Rochas, and Junya Watanabe goodies as well. Shocked? I was (and very impressed too)!
