Let me start by saying I think wanting to improve yourself is a wonderful thing. I think learning, growing, and working towards becoming your best self is probably the whole point of our time here, actually. So this post isn’t about bashing self-improvement. Continue Reading →
If you’re looking for a simple way to impress your guests this holiday season (or anytime, really), the charcuterie cheese board is where it’s at. You don’t have to cook for hours or do much prep, just arrange a few ingredients together on a big wooden or marble board – and voilà! It’s Pinterest come to life. Continue Reading →
It’s my birthday! And this lucky lady had two birthday parties, one on Friday night, and one on Saturday. I celebrated twice last year too, because I have two major groups of friends, each with their own uniquely wonderful and hilarious group dynamic. I find it simpler and more fun to have separate events rather than trying to blend the groups together. (Plus, who doesn’t want two birthday parties!?) Continue Reading →
The holidays are my favourite time of year. I love everything festive: the sparkling lights adorning trees all over the city, delicious holiday-themed food and drinks, Christmas music in every store, and the general feeling of warmth and cheer. And there’s nothing more festive and all-out Christmas-y than the annual Toronto Christmas Market. Continue Reading →
I love a classic silhouette, and many of the outfits on this blog feature figure-hugging midi dresses. I think they’re beautiful on every body type, and perfect for office holiday parties – particularly if you want to dress a little more conservatively while still feeling fancy and looking great.

I love party season. Mid-November until the first of January is a dazzling whirlwind of holiday parties, my birthday, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve. So many reasons to dress up! And as anyone who knows me knows – I’ll take any excuse. Continue Reading →
Greetings from Themyscira! So, are you surprised I dressed up as Wonder Woman for Halloween this year? No? Huh.

I’m baaaaack! And just in time for Halloween. You didn’t think I’d miss an opportunity to play dress up, did you? I’ve dressed up as many iconic fictional females, from Holly Golightly to Lara Croft to Hermione Granger to Belle. This year, I went for the original Disney princess: Snow White. Continue Reading →
Happy Monday! I hope you all had wonderful, relaxing weekends that made the most of the sunshine. My weekend was filled with wine, old friends and new, Italian food, laughter and gossip on patios, and birthday celebrations. Continue Reading →
Happy first day of summer! This is the happiest I’ve been on a Monday for a while, because I’ve taken a vacation day, and thus have my own, private long weekend. (So #blessed.) I’m happily still lazing about in bed, snacking on grapes and watching a few Youtube videos on my iPad while I put together this blog post. Continue Reading →
This spring I’ve been doing something more brave than usual: I’m wearing white. I love the way white looks in an outfit, but when you’re as much of a hazard to yourself as I am, wearing it is a big risk. Continue Reading →
So, I meant to post this spring style haul weeks earlier, when spring in Toronto had really just begun. Temperatures were finally warming, meaning Canadians were tentatively peeling off their parkas and poking their heads out the door. Trees were shaking off memories of snow and starting to bloom, lifting everyone’s spirits.
Cut to: today – the weather is gorgeous, and it’s just about summer. I’m running around in dresses most days! But until June 22nd, it’s still technically spring. So onwards with this (delayed) spring haul. Continue Reading →
While I like trying out new makeup brands and products as much as the next femme, when it comes to my daily beauty routine, I have a few staple makeup products that I refuse to go without. In fact, I’m so attached to these 10 beauty products that as soon as one starts running low, I run and buy a back-up!
I’ve re-purchased most of these products over and over, and they’ve all reigned supreme over any competition, achieving “holy grail” status. Continue Reading →
