Goodmorning guys! I was invited to attend the national women’s show this year which was really exciting. For those who don’t know, the show is a huge exhibition of vendors geared towards women (but don’t worry boys you can come too). It’s described as the ultimate girls day out to come enjoy food, fashion, beauty, shopping and more. It’s going on this weekend (April 14-15) and is totally worth checking out! Continue reading

Hey guys! I hope you had a great Christmas and are continuing to enjoy the holiday season. On Monday I braved the boxing day crowds so I wanted to share with you some of the things I picked up, as well as a few of the Christmas gifts I received. Unfortunately, most of the items I gravitated towards weren’t even on sale but I was in a shopping mood and couldn’t pass them up!

#PDOBlackFriday: Deals Under $50

IMG_6655.jpg

Happy Black Friday!! If you follow me on my socials (if you don’t you really should, links in the sidebar) you would have seen me mention that I was taking part in a Facebook Live event for Place D’Orleans, to preview the Black Friday deals they have going on today. Well, it happened last night and we had a blast!! I was initially really nervous about it, I hate public speaking, so I never really do anything like this. I never even talk in my Insta-stories (I hate the sound of my voice, I’m sure some of you can relate), but when the offer came up I couldn’t pass it up. I just thought of it as an opportunity to push myself out of my comfort zone and try something new! Continue reading

Fall is finally here!!! We’ve already talked about why I love fall and fall fashion so much (if you missed that convo read it here). But this fall, I have even more of a reason to be excited for the season thanks to Place D’Orleans‘ “Fall for a Fabulous Find”campaign. Place teamed up with myself, Alyssa Beltempo, Emily Smith and Erin Elizabeth and challenged us to style our best head to toe fall outfit with pieces we could find at the mall. I was so thrilled at this opportunity because of course I love a good fashion challenge and Place is somewhere I go to quite often since it’s in my area, and did I mention that I love fall fashion!?  Continue reading

Back to School with Simons

Who’s ready to go back to school!? Are you raising your hand? No? Me neither. I used to like going back to school when I was in high school, hmmm actually make that elementary school. Back to university just marks the beginning of stress season, all nighters, eating terribly, looking like a zombie with unwashed hair…should I go on? As much as school can be a complete and total pain, I always try to remember how lucky I am to have the opportunity to go to school and how valuable education is. Continue reading

Festival Fashion

FullSizeRender-7

A couple of weeks ago my lovely blogger friend Katie of Yow City Style contacted me for a festival fashion collab. She challenged me to style my best festival outfit with pieces I could find at the Bayshore Shopping Centre for her take over of the Bluesfest fashion instagram account. For those who don’t know, Bluesfest is a 10 day music festival here in Ottawa that features a range of different awesome artists every summer. This year will actually be my first time attending (for my Ottawa people I know I’m crazy! I’ve lived here Continue reading

A Walking Ad

FullSizeRender-5

Remember in the last post how I said that now of all times I’m loving wearing skirts and dresses? Yaaaa, I wasn’t joking. Here I am in a sleeveless dress like it’s May and not mid December (YAY for the above zero temperatures we’ve been having!!). I still need to remind myself that its cold and winter dressing time. I could’ve been a little warmer in this look but I was pretty comfortable thanks to some secret layering tricks. Want to know what they are? (I ask like I’m not just about to tell you anyway).

End of Summer Haul

IMG_7547

Can we just have a moment of silence for the summer that was. I could just cry thinking of the cold ahead. I do love fall though! Fall fashion is definitely my fave, but let’s be real, fall in Ottawa is more like a fling. Winter is the real commitment if you ask me. I’m sending off the summer by sharing with you some of the newest beauty and fashion items I’ve purchased this summer.  Continue reading
