Cliques and Frenemies in Blogging: 5 Things You Can Do About Them

Community over competition, right? In theory, yes. In reality, not always. Last Sunday, I teamed up with 2 blogger friends to host our first live session on my Instagram account. One of the themes that came up in the questions from our followers before and during the discussion was the issue of cattiness and cliques in the blogging community. Unfortunately, the issue of frenemies and blogger cliques is not new. As much as the blogging world may seem like an incredibly happy place filled with sunshine and rainbows and messages of women supporting other women, there are cliques and there…

2 Things I Learned From Failure

It’s been about a month since I started my Happiness Project 2018 on Instagram, and it’s been going really well! I’ve never been more conscious about my thoughts, and it’s also led to incorporating more gratitude into my life, mindfulness, and intention and purpose with my content. It’s also been about the same amount of time since I ordered Gretchen Rubin’s Happiness Project (one of the very first steps I took on my journey to everlasting happiness LOL). However, I have a big confession to make: I have not yet cracked the book open! Nope, haven’t even read the first…

Why a curated Instagram feed is not the culprit
in Fashion, Uncategorized

Stop Blaming Someone’s Curated Instagram Feed as the Source of Your Problems

(Sweater: Shopbop (sold out) (Similar from J.O.A., Similar from Endless Rose)//Skirt: Zara (sold out)//Boots: Zara (Similar in black from Free People, Similar from Stuart Weitzman, Similar from Schutz on Shopbop//Toque: sold out (Similar from White + Warren, Similar from Eugenia Kim))  Lately, there has been a huge backlash against the “curated” Instagram feed. More and more, I’m hearing complaints about all the “perfect” photos and “unattainable” lifestyles on Instagram, which in turn, are causing people to feel bad about themselves. Even worse, I’ve heard reports of people hurting themselves, having eating disorders, or committing suicide, which makes my heart sink. And I…

Style Post – From Hibernation to Hypothermia

The last 5 days have been a total and complete blur. Who else feels the same? From all the lazing around in sweats and binge TV watching to excessive eating, I’ve had to ask what day of the week and year it is on several occasions (thank goodness for our Google home!). The days in between Christmas and New Year’s are always kind of strange for me – especially since starting to blog. The best way to describe it is like being in limbo. I’m ‘on vacation’, yet not quite on vacation. Truthfully, as much as I’d love to give…

Holiday Gift Guide with Upper Canada

Back from yet another amazing trip to Mexico and jumping right back into the holiday preparations! Christmas is in less than two weeks, so I’ve got an easy holiday gift guide to share with you. Before we left for our vacation (travel guide coming soon!), we took a trip to Upper Canada to shop at some of my favourite retailers. Every year, I set out with the best intentions to get my Christmas shopping done early. But, I always seem to end up at the mall on December 23rd or 24th running around and spinning my wheels on what last-minute…

Style Post – Changing Gears

Hey guys! Really wanted to get a quick style post up on the blog this week, before I take off on my next adventure! In terms of a life update, if you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ll know that I got back from Mexico City exactly 1 week ago, and I’m about to embark on yet another trip to sunny Meh-Hee-Co tomorrow!!! Might as well call me an ambassador for Mexico because I’ve been seeing so much of it this month! My first trip was in partnership with the Mexico City Tourism Board with my friend, Solmaz, of The…

Style Post – All Decked Out In Ever New

It’s Monday and the start of a new week! As you read this, I’m probably already on a plane to Mexico City, and I couldn’t be any more excited to get away! But before I switch gears into vacation mode, I want to take a minute to introduce you to one of my favourite international retailers: Ever New. I’m really happy to be an ambassador for Ever New and to help spread the word about this amazing clothing brand! A Little Introduction to Ever New If you’ve never heard of Ever New before, it’s a women’s clothing and accessories brand…

How to Style a Plaid Blazer in a Feminine Way

One of the hottest trends for fall this year is, no doubt, the plaid blazer. But, if you’re anything like me, you might have been a little reluctant to hop on the plaid blazer trend right away. That’s because the blazers we’ve been seeing this season are oversized and structured, and I’m usually weary when it comes to oversized clothes because I’m petite. Often times, I end up looking like I’m drowning in the clothes and it’s just not a good look for me. I’ve also mentioned several times before that my style is feminine and classic. The structured plaid…

Style Post – My Favourite Pair of Trousers: The Babaton Cohen Pant

Hands up if you buy the same article of clothing in multiple colours if you really like it! I’m totally guilty of this. BUT, I think it’s excusable if: a) you LOVE that article of clothing, and b) it’s classic enough to last you for many seasons. If you follow me on Instagram, you saw that I recently committed this crime by buying, not 1, not 2, buy THREE pairs of Steve Madden flats at the same time. Yet another item, and the subject of this blog post, that I have done this for (and recommend that you do too)…

Style Post – Treat Yourself with Upper Canada

Last Thursday, October 19th, I celebrated my 35th birthday! Yes, 35th! No complaints over here about getting old. Thirty-five is actually a number I’m very proud of, and that represents the amount of progress I’ve made. I finally feel like I’m at a place in my life that I’m super happy with, and for that I’m grateful. But, what I’m not so grateful for is the fact that I had to work on my birthday. As much as I wanted to take the day off, I ended up spending the afternoon working 🙁 . My answer to working on my…
