Summer Styling

July 28, 2016

It’s the middle of summer, August long weekend approaches, and I must say – it’s been a beautiful first summer in Toronto! And although I’ve been working full time, on my days off I’ve enjoyed discovering my neighborhood, getting out to Toronto Island, lounging by the pool, and seriously vegging out! My brain is definitely on summer vaycay mode right now (I took a 2 hour nap today – mid day, haha) and while I’ve been flip flopping about what to talk about on my latest post, I thought I’d share a few of my favourite summer styles and places to shop!  pics for aga khan

Victoria Beach

June 30, 2016

It’s Canada Day long weekend, and while I’m personally stuck in the city this time around, I’m day dreaming of sitting on a beach with a picnic basket full of treats! So I’m throwing it back to a fun day last summer when my sister, friend Monique, and I ventured out to Victoria Beach for a get away that was oh so perfect!victoria beach Continue Reading…

sister

June 23, 2016

Thought I’d share a little throw back to last summers escapades to the gravel pits in Manitoba featuring my beautiful sister, Arika. The amount of times we packed up the car and ventured around are countless, so happy we captured some moments. She was quite reserved this day, but normally she’s a big goofball in front of the camera (a side she only reserves for snapchat apparently). She’s a true free spirit and has such a fun personality, missin’ her lots!    sisterssisters

You Do You

April 21, 2016

Today I had the lovely pleasure of chatting with a new friend, discussing brand identity to sharing stories about the the creative freelance life. I felt a lot of guilt because I haven’t been a good “blogger” lately. I felt like a bad role model -like I wasn’t working hard enough! Which isn’t completely true, because I’ve been working hard balancing my day to day jobs. So…here’s me reminding myself to stop worrying about how/what I’m doing with my life, and just be patient and authentic! Yup #YouDoYou.

spring lace

March 20, 2016

Spring is officially here! I’ve got to say, I love my sweaters but I’ve been looking at them kind of loathingly the past couple weeks. So close to swapping out the winter wardrobe to the summer one! I’ve already started shopping for summer must haves. I’m currently obsessing over anything high waisted so I’m searching for the right pairs of shorts, and feminine light tops. This outfit however, caught me off guard. I glanced by it and loved the material and color, but what the? Bell bottoms? Tube top? I was suspicious, I tried it on and it was weirdly amazing! Unexpected elements that just came together so beautifully, at least in my eyes. You never know until you try it on my friends!spring lace Continue Reading…

style nine to five

March 13, 2016

I recently had the pleasure of sharing a few details about myself and my blog with Style Nine to Five. I have to say, I’m so grateful to have met such wonderful people in the blogging world! What I enjoy most about blogging is the opportunity to collaborate and meet with other like minded individuals to share each others stories in life/business/ art and inspire each other on our individual journeys. There’s a great sense of comradery in the blog world (in Toronto specifically) as we’re all united by a similar thread of passion that drives us to create and share, in a way that inspires and unites us as a community. It’s refreshing to connect with new people (and I’m not just talking bloggers but everyone I meet along the way via social media and online) who share similar tastes, values, passions, as you do and I have to thank technology and the blog world for uniting us. style nine to five style nine to fiveRead the interview with Style Nine To Five here!

canadian museum for human rights

March 6, 2016

One of the most brilliant and beautiful structures lies in the heart Winnipeg. The Canadian Museum for Human Rights sits on historic land at The Forks, the intersection of the Red and Assiniboine River. The outside structure resembles a wrapped up bundle (nest like I’d say) that spirals upward to a point. It’s rounded, yet angular, with reflective glass panels mixed with limestone. The inside is simply amazing! Breathtaking really! The views of the city, the spacial interaction between rooms, the alabaster stone lit walk ways, the natural elements of stone with steel, water and air. I actually spent my whole first visit just experiencing the architectural space alone. I have yet to go back and engage with the exhibit. canadian museum for human rights canadian museum for human rights

Architect Antoine Predock showcases his ability to create structural landscapes that synthesize the varied independent spaces and how they unpredictably yet organically flow together. The space was interactive, emotionally evocative, innovative, and thoughtfully designed!  Continue Reading…

how to pose for the camera

February 22, 2016

Posing, or the art of, may be something that just comes naturally to some, but for most (including myself) it’s a mix of what I’ve learned and the art of photography. How to take a good picture involves so many elements. Angle, lighting, camera, posture…but for now, I’d like to offer a few tips on posing.blue1 blue2 Continue Reading…
