Savage

 

 

My obsession with cut-off sweatshirts to real.  So real that while getting ready for work, and running late….of course- I asked my man to take the scissors and do his best Edward Scissorhands impression on my top.  The results- I actually like it better!

 

Thanks boo.

I tend to always leave my Halloween ideas to the 11th hour.  I have kids costumes to think of, coordinate school pick-up and leave work early.  Rush a dinner. By candy, decorate, etc.  Turns out that as an adult, Halloween stops being just about candy.  Who knew?!  The past 3 or so years, I have…

Sweatshirt for a Cause

My current new obsession- the oversize sweatshirt.  In the last 2 weeks, I’ve bought about 4.  Comfort has been winning these days, with the weather changing and all the running around and travelling it’s just not practical.  What’s more is that I recently discovered this amazing brand when I was in LA last week.

Clinging onto Summer

  Anyone else feel like summer hasn’t officially even started, yet somehow we are creeping into fall?  I know I do.  I’m clinging onto the last days of sandals, summer dresses, and my personal favourite- no bra.  I’m not mentally prepared to deal with what winter has to bring in our Canadian climate, so I’ll…

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?…

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

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.…
