Riogordo


Phew! I'm home from Spain after what felt like the longest time away ever. It was an amazing trip - I saw my cousin get married at Lake Vinuela, spent time by the sea in Torre del Mar, did some shopping in Malaga and really got away from it all at my aunt's house in Riogordo. The Andalusian region of Spain is one I'd never been to before, and it was so interesting to visit all the various cities and experience an entirely new side of Spain (as you may remember, I spent a while in Barcelona a few years back and just loved it). This trip was much more relaxing, I don't think I wore much more than a day dress or a bathing suit most days, and didn't even look at my makeup bag or jewelry case for the majority of the trip!
Here are some photos from my aunt's porch, overlooking the olive groves in her backyard.

Let's Get Away


Let's Get Away

Preparing to leave for vacation next week got me looking through old vacation photos, and I came across this set from Mexico that I never posted. I've been having an extremely busy month, consisting of my beloved godparents visiting from out of town, taking a quick birthday jaunt to Chicago, working, more family visiting and trying to fit in seeing my significant other in between everything else. I need another vacation already, and this next one is coming just in time. I'll be heading to Spain, specifically the Malaga and the south of Spain, so if anyone has visited that area before and has any recommendations, please pass them on as I'll be there for two weeks!

What Moves You


What Moves You

It was about a year ago that I realized I had some pretty unhealthy habits. After two years of lots of travelling, not drinking much water and eating whatever I wanted, I noticed a difference in my body - and not in a good way! After my realization, I started making small changes in my life - upping my water intake, eating more greens and trying to eliminate processed foods where I can. The biggest change I made was upping my bi-weekly yoga class attendance to going at least three times a week, walking more and lifting light weights. Now one year later, I've noticed a huge difference in not only my physical appearance, but also in my energy levels. This summer I'm adding hikes throughout some of Toronto's beautiful paths to my exercise routine. It's such a great way to get out of the bustling streets, breathe fresh air and spend time with the friends (both human and canine)
A big thank you to my puppy Bella for putting up with me on this hike and for being such a stellar model, and to Free People for these amazing FP Movement pieces. Check out the rest of the FP Movement Collection, including lines specifically for Surf, Ballet and Yoga HERE.

Birthday Wishlist


Birthday Wishlist

Well, it's officially my "Birthday Week" (a term I deeply loathe, yet apply to my own life anyhow). This year I haven't asked for much (officially), but have hinted at a few items I might not be too upset to receive. In case anyone in my life is searching for a last minute present, here are a few humble ideas that I haven't been able to stop thinking about all season.
First Row: Gianvito Rossi Leopard Print Sandals, Givenchy Antigona Bag
Second Row: Stella McCartney Ring, Illesteva Sunglasses, Charlotte Olympia "Kitty" Velvet Slippers
Third Row: Babaton Romper (similar), Jerome Dreyfuss "Florent" Backpack, Jennifer Meyer Wishbone Necklace

Handvaerk


Handvaerk

Confession Time: My boyfriend is more stylish than I am. It's an unfortunate truth in my relationship that when it comes to style, he knows best. You might think, "But wait, you're the fashion blogger in the relationship!", and this is true, but while I am drawn towards printed silk pants and babydoll dresses, he is the type who knows cut and fabrics, and will invest in high quality pieces that will last a lifetime. I have learned so much about tailoring and silhouettes since we got together a year ago. So when he discovered Handvaerk sweatshirts and decided to cop one, I followed suit.
Handvaerk is an amazing artisan label designed in New York that specializes in high quality, luxurious everyday essential pieces. Because Handvaerk is the brainchild of a husband and wife team, I thought it only natural to include my (very camera-shy) love in these pictures with me. To read more about them and check out more of their collection, head over to their site here.

[Two Disclaimers: 1. This is not a sponsored post, I just genuinely love this company and all that they do. 2. My boyfriend and I don't go around dressing like twins every day of our lives]
