Summer Stripes and Straw Hats

Today I am partnering with Tobi to give you a fun, fresh and effortless nautical look with their Peace of Mind Striped Off the Shoulder Shift Dress. I am on the lookout for clothes that are versatile enough to wear while being mega pregnant (35 weeks) yet my perfect size when I no longer have a baby bump to accommodate. One of my favourite features of this dress is the breezy flared sleeves! I thought

There are varying degrees of SPF which stands for “Sun Protection Factor.” The number refers to how many times longer it will protect you

The house you live in should also be a home, in my opinion. Having lived in our place for just over three years we have slowly made it our own a little bit at a time. Here are a few tips I have learned along the way to create a calm and inviting atmosphere in your humble abode! Get Rid of Clutter Clutter equals chaos, which is the opposite of a peaceful vibe.

My Favourite Canadian Brands

In honour of Canada Day 150 coming up this weekend, I wanted to share with you some of my absolute favourite Canadian brands!   Roots Canada Ltd Is it super cliché to mention Roots in a Canada Day post? Founded in 1973 it is still run by the founders Michael Budman and Don Green with their design centre and leather factory located in Toronto, Ontario. This year I really wanted to rock my Canuck pride

Summer Hues – I Love Blues!

Most of my life I have gravitated toward blues and greens. Even when I was a little girl my go-to Crayola crayon that I would use up while leaving the others untouched was “Jungle Green.” I attribute it partly to me being a huge lover of nature! I was that girl, out in the rain collecting earth worms as pets. I remember creating an entire bucket of them, filled with mud and water because that

Pineapple Hair – Don’t Care in My Super Comfortable Maxi Dress

Do you ever have those days when you really don’t feel like doing anything with your hair that takes longer than 10 seconds? That’s me, nearly every morning! My go-to look when my hair is super long is the pineapple bun. I gather an elastic around it as if I am going to make a pony tail but instead do not bring my hair the full way through. Then I pull the sides of the

I don’t know if you have had a chance to look at my new Services & Partnerships page but I am really excited to talk about some of the options I offer to help brand your business. I love working with other business owners to create a bespoke hand-drawn image to represent them! Sometimes all you need is a spot illustration. What is a spot you may be asking?

Summer Stripes with a Pop of Color

If there is one type of pattern I seem to gravitate toward year after year it would be stripes! Lately I have been into wearing a lot of dresses and found this gorgeous navy and white classic. I have linked a similar one here. I wasn’t into fussing with my hair so I put it up in a messy pineapple bun. I paired the stripes with my LV Speedy 30 in Damier Ebene – I love

In Honor of National Best Friends Day: June 8th

This week, on June 8th, we celebrate those true and genuine spirits we have the honor of calling our best friends. I just got back from a fun-packed weekend in Bayfield, Ontario for my friend Bella’s Bachelorette. I have  a small circle of friends who are like sisters to me. I value when people can be real  — and throughout life have found reliable (girl) friends hard to find! What is it with women anyways?
