Happy Cyber Monday friends!

I'm really excited about today's post.  I had an absolute blast creating these for you and thinking this will definitely become a yearly tradition around here!  I guess you could say I'm having a little Oprah moment & wanted to share with you all my absolute favourite things I'm coveting this year.  Truthfully a lot of these items I've been obsessed with for years!  I hope this gives you some great gifting ideas - enjoy!

Of course above Emily Ley's Simplified Planner this will be my 3rd year using these planners and I la-la-love them! Switched it up this year from the usual Happy Stripe to the sweet polka-dots!

Okay. Let's to this. Happy Scrolling!

#GLAMUPGORGEOUS

Wednesday, November 25, 2015


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.

THE LONDON COLLECTION

Monday, November 23, 2015


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!

Staycation

Wednesday, November 11, 2015


Few weeks ago Kosta & I celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary.  I cannot believe two years has already passed, it feels like just yesterday I was walking down the aisle to him.  It was no lie what I said in this post, I still get butterflies when I hear him call me his wife and smile to myself despite my best efforts to keep it cool.  Nonetheless time has flown by, but that's what happens as you get older I suppose, life gets busier and time moves faster.  That's why we do our best to really enjoy the little in-between moments in life; ones that have no significance to anyone else but the two people sharing in it.

BAGS & THE CITY

Monday, November 9, 2015


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...


DISTILLERY DISTRICT

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!)

HIGH PARK

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...

CASA LOMA

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.

Thanks for reading & hope you enjoyed the collaboration plus getting a peek inside some of my favourite areas in the city.

Lots of love,
