Spring Essentials

Happy end of Monday (and hopefully end of winter)! I know it’s been a week since I’ve posted, but in my defence, work and family took up all my time last week. But I’m back, baby, and here are my some of my suggestions to user in springtime:
1. A face mask to prep your skin for all those spring walks
2. Bright pretty nails thanks to these
3. Celebrate the season with this lip colour
4. Scalloped bag, the better to go everywhere with
5. My dream spring dress

Orange Is The New Black & The Fashion It Inspires

This weekend, I succumbed to the pressure of my family (my mom!) and my friends’ recommendations, in addition to all the promotions and advertising about the new season, and finally gave Orange Is The New Black a try. Needless to say, I became an instant fan and have started the second season. In my defence, I probably would’ve finished by now if not for the French Open finals. Anyways, it got me to thinking about the color orange. I own an orange dress that I love but not much else. In honor of this great show, here are some ways to incorporate the criminally colorful hue in your closet.

1. My aforementioned orange lace dress is similar to this one by J. Mendel.
2. This bright color is perfect for summer in the form of a crop top.
3. For those a little shy about rocking such a loud color, then why not start with shoes? These are Carrie Bradshaw-approved.
4. Or you can also start with a bag, like this one from Kate Spade.
5. Speaking of summer and orange, this maxi skirt can transition from beach to dinner flawlessly.

Hope everyone is enjoying the new season of Orange Is The New Black, whether you’re binge-watching or slowly savoring each episode. And when you’re done, try adding a little more orange in your life. Happy Monday!

Summer & The Fashion It Inspires

Ever since we got back to Toronto, the sun has been shining and the temperature has been steadily rising. I’m going to say it, summer is officially here and I’m celebrating all week long, starting with some of my favorite summer essentials.


1. Crossbody bags are perfect for summer when all you need are your keys, your wallet and your sunglasses.
2. The perfect sundress to me has a fun colour, a classic shape and feature a great design. Check on all three with this one.
3. One can never have too many bikinis. Victoria’s Secret is having a sale and now you can mix and match your own with their bikini mixer.
4. No better excuse than summer to splurge on a new pair!
5. Birkenstocks have made a comeback and my feet could not be happier. I own the Gizeh in silver.

Combat the Monday blues with some summer shopping. Happy Monday!

Mother’s Day 2014 Gift Guide Inspired By My Mom

Happy Monday! Mother’s Day is almost upon us and since I won’t be with my mom, I’m especially nostalgic and sentimental about it this year. Of course, I wanted to do a gift guide but this one is personally inspired by things my mom loves.
1. A candle that smells like Tuscany in spring would definitely fit well in my mom’s house.
2. Every time she comes to visit, she requests cupcakes and I bet any mom would love a box from Dlish.
3. My mom loves to entertain and this pastel serving bowl is perfect for spring get-togethers.
4. I’m not sure if it’s just my mom who seems like she has everything and anything in her handbag but if your mom likes to carry a lot too, then this tote definitely has the space to fit it all.
5. If there’s one thing I know about my mom is that she can’t function without her morning coffee and this travel mug means she can drink it on her way to work.
6. Aside from coffee, my mom likes tea as well. David’s Tea has released adorable limited edition tea sets for Mother’s Day and this Chai set would still give my mom her caffeine fix.
