Monday Obsessions

Hey Guys,

I’m so excited it’s August. It’s my favourite month of the year. And NOT just because it’s my birthday month. It’s the best time of year, when the nights begin to cool off and you can just feel Fall creeping in. I know this makes a lot of you cringe—you summer-lovers—but for me, Fall is always the time of year to look forward to. For one, the September Issue comes out (I’m dying to know who the cover girl is) and another, it’s grown-up “back-to-school” time, AKA go on a shopping spree time (sorry mom).

Anyway, it’s my birthday next weekend I am taking the day off of work (hallelujah), spending the morning at the farmer’s market, probably going to the beach, and then sitting down with my best gal pals for dinner at one of my favourite restaurants in Toronto. Literally, the ideal day for me! Crazy, right?

To get everyone’s week started here’s a list of my Monday Obsessions. Enjoy!

J.Crew has teamed up with my favourite Brooklyn Jewellery Boutique. This is my favourite piece.

The Cov’s Road trip Guide. Amazing. Where to go and what to bring.

I don’t always read my horoscope, but since it’s my birthday month, why not!?

Suit’s fans rejoice. Meghan Markle, AKA Rachel Zane has launched her own lifestyle website. This is my favourite post. [Typical].

Lately, I’ve been obsessing over juice. This juicery and This place are my two go-to’s in the city.

73 Questions with Blake Lively. Such a cute video that makes me mourn the loss of GG. Check out her new lifestyle site.

I’m loving this Converse collaboration. Seriously! Gravity Pope will be selling them come September.

Need a little workout inspiration? This is your new app. It’s like having your own personal trainer in your phone.

Lastly, I’m leaving you with this mouth-weatering recipe. This is happening next Saturday morning in my kitchen.

Have an awesome week

Getaway Faves

Hey guys.

 Since the next month for me includes a fair bit of travel, I put together a list of my favourite things to pack for getaways. For plane rides, go for a comfortable, yet chic look with these 1.61 drawstring pants and Osman crop top. I’m a big fan of totes when travelling and this white leather Smythson is the holy grail of handbags. It’s perfect for shoving the latest issue of Vogue, sunscreen, a water bottle, and whatever other necessities you find you just can’t part with. Don’t forget to protect your iPad with this beyond-cute Toucan print case from Kate Spade. For lunches and nights out opt for a fun clutch like this Marc by Marc Jacobs one featuring his signature bulldog. You can thank the fashion gods for the latest obsession with Birks because these guys are the perfect shoe for exploring your destination city. Don’t forget to document the trip: I especially love the Fuji film Instax camera that instantly prints out photos as you take them. In terms of beauty, low key is best. Simply spray in some Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray for the perfect beach waves and you’re out the door in seconds. I also love this Bobbi Brown multi-tasking cream that works on both your cheeks and lips. Lastly, opt for a bright nail colour on your trip. I am currently obsessed with this bright blue from Essie that goes perfectly with the seasons whites. Be sure to pack a pair of cute sunnies. I like this Tory Burch pair that are classic and neutral enough to pair with any outfit. Lastly, no matter if you’re going to the beach or the city, always pack a swimsuit. I love this classic nautical striped two-piece by Chloe.

Wishing you all safe travels and a good first week of May!

Hey Everyone!

With our clocks set ahead one hour this Sunday I thought I should start posting a few of my favourite Spring trends. I know today is exceptionally warm out, but trust me fellow Torontonians, it is just a tease. Sadly, tomorrow is supposed to snow a crap load and go back down to -17, so brace yourselves. Anyway, This outfit speaks to my personal style in volumes. It’s all about being trendy yet relaxed and comfortable. I’m all about the sneaker game and die for these woven Nike high tops. Similarly, I’m obsessed with the oversized sweater coat look; it goes with everything, especially in this warm camel colour, and will keep you warm with the weather transitioning. Boyfriend jeans are another staple this spring and in a light wash you can’t go wrong. Pair these with sneakers or dress ’em up with your favourite heels. Lastly, Ice cream colours are also a favourite trend and I’m loving cotton candy pinks and buttercup yellows. Spring is definitely a time to experiment with nail colours.

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m looking forward to lighter layers and warmer weather! Stay tuned for more Spring Fashion reports!

Hey Everyone!

For all of you getting ready for a date this Valentine’s Day or just need a little outfit inspiration here’s a selection of my favourite pieces this February. I absolutely love the new Aritzia midi length dress, especially in this bold red color. Paired with a simple leather jacket, cutout wedges and a calf hair clutch and you’re good to go.  One of my fave beauty products is Deborah Lippmann nail polish; I think candy pink is perfect for February. I also cannot get enough of my Chloé Roses fragrance…who needs an actual bouquet of roses anyway? Don’t forget to indulge in some pretty lingerie…it wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without it. Same goes for cute accessories like this Oh La La coin purse from Kate Spade and the Lips iPhone Case by DVF.

Hope you all have a wonderful Febraury 14th!
