Pearl Jumpsuit


It is cold in Toronto. Like, two sweaters, blanket scarves (plural) and a parka cold. It seems like everyone I know is leaving on vacation, including my own family, and I can't say I don't feel a little bit of envy. But I've got oolong tea, layers upon layers of black clothes (who wears colour in the winter?!?) and episodes of Friends on Netflix to keep me warm. Speaking of warm - I'm sending warm and safe thoughts to all of you New Yorkers in the middle of this crazy storm - stay cozy and out of harm's way this week!

2015


2015

I can't believe another year has come and gone. 2014 was an absolutely wonderful year, but I already know that 2015 is going to be even better. Between friends getting married, babies coming into the world, a new move professionally, and my beloved godparents moving close to me, things on a personal level are off to a fabulous start.
I wish nothing but wonderful things for all of you over the next year. I feel so blessed because of the relationships I've created with various bloggers over the years - whether it's the occasional traded comment, an email pen pal relationship or something that's evolved into a real life friendship, I am so thankful for all of you who take the time to come by this space. Happy New Year, Everyone.

A Leopard Coat for Christmas


A Leopard Coat for Christmas

Happy Christmas Eve, loves! This year has sped by, yet again, and I am feeling so happy and so festive. I absolutely adore this time of year, being surrounded by loved ones, giving and receiving gifts... it's almost as if the rest of the outside world pauses for a few days of pure joy.
I started an exciting new job this week and have been absolutely loving it, though it's thrown me off my blogging game a bit. Once I get used to my new hours, regular posting times will resume. Until next time, sending so much love to you and your family members and wishing you all a safe and happy holiday season.

Grey Furry Sweater


Grey Furry Sweater

I love winter clothes for many reasons, one of them being the fact that there are so many textures and fabrics to play with. I have loved mixing this neoprene skirt with cozy knits this month. Another added texture in this outfit is my hair, which my hair stylist, Niki, actually micro-crimped before putting it in this bun. Micro-crimping creates the coolest fluffy texture that makes your hair so moldable and voluminous. She used something similar to this tool to create the effect.

Cyber Monday: Gold Edition


Cyber Monday: Gold Edition

Hooray for Cyber Monday! While Black Friday didn't become a big thing in Canada until very recently, I was on the Cyber Monday bandwagon from the very beginning.
