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…

Easy Holiday Entertaining Guide with the PC Insiders Collection

My husband and I kick-started the holiday season by throwing a little party with a couple of our closest friends last weekend. We love spending quality time with our friends during the holidays, but it can be difficult to get everyone together closer to Christmas. So, we figured we’d start a bit early, and with the help of the PC Insiders Collection it was a total breeze from start to finish! If you’ve never heard of it before, the PC Insiders Collection is basically a lifesaver! It has pretty much every thing you ever needed to throw a party, from…

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)…

Romantic Staycation at One King West

A few weeks ago, Alex and I celebrated our 3-month wedding anniversary (how time flies!). We got to spend it at one of our favourite hotels in Toronto: One King West. We have such a special connection to this hotel because it’s actually where I spent the night before our wedding and where Alex and I spent our first night as a married couple! We were invited back for a romantic staycation for 2 nights, and the timing of our return couldn’t have been more perfect. Can you believe, we were even put up in the exact same room that…

Zucchini, Leek and Basil Soup

I can’t believe it’s already the end of October and the holidays are just around the corner! However, it feels like anything but outside, since we’ve been enjoying an unusually warm autumn in Toronto (no complaints about it, whatsoever, though!). Many days start off chilly, and by the afternoon, the temperature’s in the double-digits. So it’s no wonder we are all feeling a bit weather confused these days! It’s also left me feeling the same way in the kitchen. The weather had me craving ice cream for Thanksgiving, and now, these balmy temps aren’t exactly inspiring me to start preparing recipes for…
