Mock Neck Dress with a Hint of Sparkle

Lately I have really enjoyed wearing a simple dress paired with minimal accessories. In this month’s Bijoux Box I received a gorgeous statement necklace that adds just a hint of sparkle. It is called the Peony Necklace. Along with it there were a couple of pieces by Nicole Richie’s line, House of Harlow and a cheeky wallet with vintage-inspired graphics. I love having three surprise items delivered to me every month! Be sure to check

My Elegant Lace Dress by Tiffany Rose Maternity

I am saving this gorgeous Tiffany Rose Chloe Lace Dress for a special occasion but today being gloomy – with the forecast seemingly not getting any better for the next week, I thought I would style it as part of my daily outfit and make everything more cheerful. This dress comes in a wide range of colours but I could not resist the Orchid Blush shade so it clearly had to be mine! I love

Boss Babe

How I Stay Motivated

Following your dreams while still keeping up with the necessities of day to day life is not always easy. I will be the first to admit that! Starting my business 4 years ago, while working like crazy at a day job I disliked was extremely draining. Now days, throw in my pregnancy (depleted energy!) along with keeping up with a blog and various other projects, it can feel so logical to just simply lay down

Pink Blush Maternity Maxi Dress

Boho Vibes with PinkBlush Maternity

This Pop is going to POP in a few months! It was only a matter of time before my waistline expanded to a point that I could no longer jam into my regular clothes (unless they were/are made of spandex, of course). I spent a couple of months living in my black tights as it was far too cold to slip on a cute dress. Thank goodness, the second half of my pregnancy will be

Zara Frilled-Sleeve Dress

Accessorizing My Frilled-Sleeve Dress

One of my favourite stores to shop at is Zara. I have come to expect lineups for both the change rooms and the cashiers and I must confess I  will often slip something on over my clothes in the middle of the floor. This Frilled-Sleeve Dress was no exception! After trying it on in-store I went home and ordered it online here. A little idea for any of my bridal readers looking for an unconventional,

Ripped Jeans

Getting Ripped for Summer

The one thing I can never get enough of is ripped jeans. Once I find the perfect pair I usually wear them until there are more holes than actual jean. This was very much the case with my tried and true favourite pair I purchased from American Eagle a couple of years ago! This past weekend was beautiful – so I did not miss a chance to pull these tattered beauties from the back of

Flower Petal Fashion Illustrations

Once in awhile I like to make use of flower petals from bouquets in my house and create fashion illustrations that incorporate them. This lovely lady is not afraid to be bold and dress how she feels. Today maybe she is just fancies a crown – sprinkled with a dusting of pollen. Thank goodness she doesn’t have allergies! When I created this beauty I was thinking along the lines of Downton Abbey. Flower petals are

Home Studio Refresh

Today I am sharing my home studio refresh! My desk has officially been moved from a light aqua blue room to a much larger space in our house. A lot of changes have been happening and I am excited for this new venture. I added a rack of some favourite outfits along with an abstract painting done by yours truly a few years back. I think this pairs well with my black, white and blush

Budget Friendly Gifts for Yourself

Something all you need is a little pick-me-up to add some interest to an otherwise blah day. While I always find hanging out with a good friend or pet usually does the trick – here are a few mini gifts you can buy yourself on those days when the sun doesn’t shine! How about a pair of panties – or better yet, a subscription from Panty by Post! Shown is their Premium Luxe Panty in
