It All Started with a Text Message (Our Love Story)

Everything happens for a reason. I know that sounds so cliché, but I truly believe it. That’s because, 4 and a half years ago, there was one single text message—timed so perfectly—that saved me from a dark place, and steered my life in a different direction at the time I needed it most. My husband has become a bit of a permanent fixture on my Instagram account, popping up regularly in my photos. It’s to the point that I will bring him to a blogger event and people he’s never met will say “you must be Alex”! Since he’s such…

Greatest Accomplishment of 2017

The year started off as a challenge, but 2017 ended up being one of the best years of my life! For the first half of the year, I was struggling to manage my corporate law practice, blogging, and planning my wedding. However, I took a huge risk and leap of faith when I decided to quit my job in order to pursue what I’m passionate about on a full-time basis. The timing of me leaving law couldn’t have been better, and my decision to blog full-time has since paid off. But above my greatest accomplishment professionally, my greatest accomplishment for 2017…

Lextle Ties The Knot Part One: Favourite Wedding Day Moments

Hi Friends! I know it’s been almost 2 months since we said “I do” and I still haven’t shared a single blog post on our wedding day with you. My apologies, but we wanted to take a looong break from anything wedding related after we got married. The months leading up to the big day were some of the busiest and craziest of my entire life; and needless to say, we were suffering from (over-)exhaustion afterwards. I was also trying to think of the best way to share our wedding story and moments with you, and have been going back…

Expressing Gratitude: How I Surprised My Bridesmaids with A Gift From PANDORA Jewellery

One thing I am guilty of not doing often enough: showing appreciation, especially to those that are closest to me. It’s not that I’m not grateful or don’t have manners; I always do make sure to say “please” and “thank you”. But I know actions speak louder than words, and saying “thank you” can be less powerful in conveying gratitude than a meaningful gesture or a gift. In giving a thoughtful gift, you go that extra little mile and say “I truly appreciate you” to the person you who’s receiving it. However, life gets in the way sometimes, and there…

Celebrating Our Engagement

My fiancé, Alex, proposed to me on December 12, 2015 and it was magical! Whenever people ask me how he proposed, I always ask them how much time they have to listen to the story! I’m truly not exaggerating when I tell you that our proposal was like something out of a movie! Alex pulled out all the stops by planning an entire day full of surprises, including asking me to marry him with 4 framed pictures in an art gallery, a surprise lunch with our friends, dinner at my favourite restaurant, and a helicopter ride around Toronto! We were lucky enough…
