Few weeks ago I teamed up with the incredible Benefit Canada team and Krystin Lee to create two glamourous party looks. I feel very fortunate to be able to collaborate with such amazing brands and it's always a treat when I've been a fan of the brand for years. I have been in love with Benefit since I could remember. Their fun packaging and incredible products have always kept me coming back. I have been using their waterproof mascara for YEARS, it's the only thing that doesn't bug my eyes.

Thrilled to release to you all today the much anticipated London Collection!
A lot of work goes into creating each new collection, it's a long and at moments a gruelling process. I always have two favourite moments with every collection. The first, when I first see the final prints. Very proud moment after staring / editing / re-editing on a screen for so long to have them in your hands. The second is giving them all names! I'm picky and need each one to be just right. I had a lot of fun giving these all names so hope you enjoy discovering our newest collection!

Our brand new print packs are now available! We are introducing a new size (5x7) featuring a selection of our most popular Paris & NYC prints. I love these print packs because they are perfect for creating a fun gallery wall without breaking the bank. Whether you're a college student and want to glam up your dorm or a home owner who wants to fill up a wall, these packs are the perfect solution!

I'm so excited to share with you all a fun project I've been working on in collaboration with Michael Kors. The idea behind this project was to capture a few signature MK pieces in my favourite areas around Toronto (how fun is that?). Very excited to reveal some of the final images. This was such an enjoyable project combining my photography with some of my favourite spots in Toronto. Keep on scrolling to discover what they are...
Whether you want to shop in beautiful boutique stores, enjoy a cup of coffee or eat at some of the best restaurants in Toronto, distillery district is a little slice of Europe in city. I love it for it's narrow alleyways and cobblestone roads. My favourite time of year at the Distillery is around the Holidays where it becomes more like the North Pole in more ways than one (see below!)

FAVOURITE TIME OF YEAR TO VISIT - CHRISTMAS
High Park is beautiful in every season. The spring for its gorgeous cherry blossoms, the summer for escaping the hot steamy city, the winter for its white wonderland & the fall for feeling like you're stepping into a Monet painting filled with warm brilliant hues. I chose this location because I love fall picnics especially around Thanksgiving. Grab someone you love, lots of cozy blankets, delicious food and sit and watch the leaves fall...

FAVOURITE TIME OF YEAR TO VISIT - SPRING
Casa Loma is one of the most beautiful places in the city. Truth be told, as I a child I was petrified of the castle (this was thanks to my father who came on a school field trip with us in elementary school and decided it was a good idea to hide in an eerie hallway only to jump out and scare my friends and I. I was so scared for the rest of tour. As I got older I could appreciate the hilarity of my dad's prank & it's one of those childhood memories you think of from time to time & laugh). Casa Loma is truly something special, if you haven't been I'd definitely recommend it!

UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO CAMPUS
Although I'm not an alumni of UofT, one of my best friends is. I remember visiting her at the campus and being in awe of its grandeur (the fact that it looks like Hogwats was just an added bonus). Arguably one of most beautiful campus' in Ontario, there is such an great energy around St. George campus that makes you want to get to work & be productive. I love this beautiful cherry backpack from MK, it's perfect way to add something chic & elegance to your school wardrobe!
My favourite time of year to visit the campus is in the Fall.

COLETTE GRAND CAFE
Audrey says Paris is always a good idea. I say Colette is always a good idea. Not long after this cafe & restaurant open did it become a quick favourite of mine (if you've been following me for a while this will be of no surprise as it's been the backdrop to a lot of fun projects). From the decadent desserts to their steak friets Colette always gets it right. My favourite area? Of course the cafe because of its beautiful blue booths & decor. It's the only place in Toronto that for a moment I can pretend I'm in Paris.

FAVOURITE TIME OF YEAR TO VISIT - ALL YEAR ROUND

If you follow me on social you'll know that last month I attended my first New York Fashion week! I was brought on board by Stephanie & Tresemme to photograph all the 'looks' throughout the week plus put together a fun behind the scenes video. I've wanted to attend NYFW for a long time and getting to go with one of my best gals made it even sweeter! I loved running around from shows to backstage to our next photoshoot location & stopping whenever we had a moment to indulge in our favourite spots. These were some of my favourite shoots I've ever done with Stephanie.

During our stay in Mykonos we were treated by Discover Greece to a lovely evening out in the town. The restaurant they selected for us was the beautiful organic bistro restaurant called 'nice n easy'. Let me start by saying, this was some of the best food we ate during our entire month in Greece. Nice n easy combines elements of Mediterranean cuisine with a focus on high quality farm-to-table ingredients. The owner Dimitris Christofordis, greeted us like old friends and the staff was so warm and inviting. As if that wasn't enough the location of the restaurant is right in the heart of little venice making the backdrop for our evening perfection. Keep on scrolling but warning it may make you hungry! ;)

This was my second time visiting the beautiful island of Mykonos. It is the island that never sleeps! If you follow me on snapchat you may have remembered a snap I took of Kosta & I walking early in the morning to take some photographs (around 8am). There were still people inside after hour bars singing & dancing from the night before! Mykonos is one of the most beautiful islands with so much to offer. Whatever you feel like doing, you can find somewhere to do that in Mykonos. The shops in the town are up till 2am you can shop drink dance and relax whenever you please. I hope you enjoy this little slice of Mykonos...

Oia, like the rest of Santorini is a slice of heaven put on earth for us to enjoy. There was so much to photograph, I don't think I put my camera down for even a moment. I had seen images of Santorini my entire life but being there myself seeing it all with my own eyes was a feeling I'll never forget. We took the bus around the island which is not but not for the light hearted - if you get dizzy easily don't look down!

I absolutely loved staying in Fira, so much beauty to discover at every turn. I felt like I would walk the same path and everyday discover something new that I had missed the day before. That's when I know I'm in a special place...so don't blink when exploring & don't be afraid to turn down paths that don't seem to be leading anywhere...that's where you'll find amazing gems to capture!
