TOM FORD Noir Pour Femme

It’s very difficult for me to find a scent, I don’t like too musky and heavy, I hate sickly florals and popular vanilla scents just ain’t for me.  That’s why I was SO SURPRISED when my wonderful boyfriend bought me Tom Ford’s Noir as a gift.  Is it possible for someone to know me THAT WELL?…

Vitamin D

  I swear Californians….you guys have it good.  Sunshine, beautiful mountain views, ocean breeze, vegetarian food to DIE for…and who can forget the palm trees.  I was in LA last week for work..talk about a hustle.  Lived in my sneaks and still managed to get my fair share of blisters.  It’s true what they say…

Micro-Trend: The Sweater Tuck

Today’s micro-trend is brought to by lack of spring we’ve clearly been having (welcome to my backyard) and my inability to pack my winter wardrobe away and pull out my dresses.  Albeit it is GORGEOUS and I feel like I live in a snow-globe-I am absoutly over it.  Two weeks till LA, two weeks till LA,…

Slumber Party Madness

  Sometimes I wish I could go back in time and be 10 years old again.  Don’t you?  Where your biggest worry was homework and Saturday morning TV made the world go round?  I almost got to re-live that this past weekend when I threw my 10-her-old step-daughter a slumber party. I basically threw her…

It’s All in the Details

The contradiction bugs me:   “Gone”   Look at all those fancy clothes, But these could keep us warm just like those. And what about your soul? Is it cold? Is it straight from the mold, and ready to be sold?And cars and phones and diamond rings, Bling, bling, because those are only removable things.…

Mexico Part 1

Back from our first family vacation.  You heard right, the whole gang.  Kids, parents, sisters and nibblings…what a trip!  We went to Cancun and came back albeit exhausted but with a glow you just can’t get from a bottle.  The Vitamin D was much needed as was the quality time we all spent together.  I…

I thought this gorgeous jacket from Fashion Nova deserved a post all to it’s own.  Beautiful camel colour, waterfall neckline, matching belt.  Check, check and check!  This classic jacket is suitable for 3 out of our 4 Canadaian seasons (which is pretty good, considering the 4th is an Arctic tundra). Of course it looks amazing…

LSBD

Well I am squeezing out as much as I can out of what is left of everything single day.  As the sun sets earlier and we put our jackets and boots on, I start thinking about all the outfits I didn’t get to wear.  The skirts, tanks, dresses…..I  need at least another 3 months.  This…

Irresistible Me

I’ve always been curious about extensions, but never even knew where to start or how to wear them. Haven’t we all wanted long celebrity hair at the drop of a hat?  When I got the chance to work with Irresistible Me and try out these extensions- few things went through my mind: 1. Which ones…

The Denim Suit

When in doubt… pull a Britney Spears… aka head-to-toe denim. There was once a time when this would have been frowned upon. Luckily for me, those times have changed and I am OWN.ING.IT.GIRL. Jumpsuits are the easiest and most stylish piece you’ll ever own. No need for matching, no need for coordinating, and damn does…
