Windy City Travel Guide

It’s long overdue, but I’m pretty excited to be posting my very first travel guide! It’s kind of ironic that this is my first, considering travel is one of my passions. On average, I take at least one, but often times two, big trips per year. But, with all the developments over the last 6-8 months, like getting engaged and now saving for our wedding, my fiancé and I have barely traveled for the year. Apart from this trip to Chicago, we don’t have any other travel plans on the horizon until next year (which makes me really sad). My fiancé had the opportunity to…

Twirl

Twirl. That’s all I want to do when I wear this top! If you read my last style post, you would already know that I’m obsessed with frilly white tops, so this top from SheIn was the perfect addition to my ever-growing collection! I came across it while shopping online for more summer shirts, and I just had to have it (especially since it’s such a great price)! It makes quite the statement on its own, with its large, accentuated ruffles, that not much else is really needed. I’ve styled with a pair of treggings (which is not a made up word, btw) and lace-up high heels,…

No Frills

The name of this blog post is a bit of a misnomer because it’s actually about frills – a lot of them! As you may have noticed if you follow me on Instagram, I have a bit of an obsession with frilly tops (as seen here and here), and in particular, white frilly tops (more to come in my next style post). I also love off-the-shoulder tops, so this little number from Club Monaco is exactly my style. Speaking of Club Monaco, if you live in Toronto, have you had a chance to check out the Club Monaco Market at the Bloor St. W. location…

On the Fringe

There’s just something about warm, sunny weather and white jeans that go hand in hand! Despite having to be so extremely careful when wearing them, white jeans are one of my favourite things to put on in the spring and summer. I think they look so lovely on women. Fun fact: the first time my parents met, it was at a party. My mother was wearing white jeans and it was one of the things that caught my father’s eye and caused him to approach her. I guess it was love at first white (my parents will probably kill me for sharing this story!) But anyway, on to…

Low Tea Brunch – Thoroughbred Food & Drink

My fiancé, Alex, and I spend a lot of time together, in general, but lately, I’ve been going to a lot of food events and brunching with other Instagrammers on the weekend. So, I thought it would be a nice change of pace to go on a brunch date with just Alex, since one of our favourite things to do together is eat, after all! We’d been to Thoroughbred Food & Drink for dinner in the past and really enjoyed our meal. So, it’s always a bonus when a restaurant you already like has a brunch service, and best of all, takes resos!…

5th Annual Bento Sushi Champion Competition

What better way to recover from my recent vacation to Chicago (where I essentially over-ate every day) than to attend a sushi competition, where I spent the day stuffing my face?! Pretty good re-integration strategy, I’d say! My pal, Karen Ng (@sincerelykn), invited me to join her and some other foodie friends to see how the top 6 Bento Sushi chefs from across the country roll at Bento Sushi’s 5th Annual Sushi Champion Competition. Each year, Bento Sushi chefs across Canada can get as creative as they want by submitting a sushi roll design of their choice. Bento Sushi then selects the top 6 chefs, who become…

Bench – Comfy, Casual

When it comes to fashion, you shouldn’t have to compromise comfort for style. As much as I love elevating a look with a pair of heels, I basically live in flats and runners on the weekend, and outside of the office, my style is, for the most part, quite minimal and relaxed. So, when I find clothes that are comfortable, stylish, and easy to throw on, I will put them on serious rotation! I recently had the opportunity to shop the Bench collection and it was such a revelation! Prior to then, I really only associated Bench with workout clothes, since all I seemed to see people in was their…

Tweak Your Tea – 3 Easy Iced Tea Recipes

Nothing says refreshing more than a glass of ice-cold iced tea! Now that the warm weather seems like it’s here to stay, it’s time to dust off the patio furniture and get summer-ready with our drinks! I’ve partnered with Pure Leaf Iced Tea and Pure Leaf Canada to show you some of the ways you can get creative and tweak your tea! Apart from water, coffee, and wine (!), iced tea is actually one of my favourite things to drink. I just haven’t been able to find a great tasting iced tea that doesn’t have all the calories or artificial sweeteners…

Ufficio

Photogenic floor tiles, marble tables, beautiful décor, attentive service, and impeccable food – I think I died and went to foodie heaven! Although technically a fine dining Italian pescatarian restaurant, if you are a carnivore, you will not miss the meat at Ufficio. Taking up shop in the Little Portugal neighbourhood of Toronto since January of this year, this place had been on my list for a while. But I was initially most interested in going for brunch (all you other bloggers and Instagrammers understand the struggle for good lighting 😉 ). After stalking their website for a bit, I made a reso for the Sunday in March when brunch…

Shopping the GEOX Nebula Collection

My quest for the perfect suede running shoe is finally over! A couple weeks ago, I was invited to shop the new GEOX Nebula collection*, where I scored this pair of grey runners. I had been looking for suede running shoes for a while, but could never manage to find the right pair. So when the opportunity arose to shop GEOX, I was super excited! When it comes to runners, I tend to stick to the usual colours: white and black. So this time, I thought I’d go in a different direction and add some colour to my running shoe collection. GEOX Nebulas come in lots of colours and…
