Gina's Spa Waterloo

Welcome Spring with a Spa Day

Last week I booked myself a nice, relaxing spa package at Gina’s Spa in Waterloo, Ontario. I really felt like I was in need of some pampering. Truth be told, I have never actually booked a package before and the older I get, the more I enjoy taking care of myself. After my relaxing (and at times painful) 1 hour massage with an RMT I paged through some old magazines. A lot of knots were kneaded

Daily Outfit Post: My Winter Jacket Collection

I am not one who likes to have excessive amounts of clothes and have narrowed down my wardrobe quite a bit in the past couple of years. The one item that I do buy multiples of and do not want to part with any of them are my jackets! Last year the portable coat rack in my basement actually snapped under the weight of all my coats.

NYFW 2017: Spring Trends

Stripes, Stripes, Stripes! A lot of variations of striped patterns seemed to grace the runways this year. No complaints on my end, as I find I am often drawn to simplistic striped patterns year after year. Designers really played with this classic – they weren’t just your everyday stripes! Some were vertical, horizontal, diagonal (or a mix of more than one angle in a single outfit). There was also a lot of play on colour.

Home Decor Inspiration – My Family Room Refresh!

One of the sunniest rooms in our house is a room I have aptly nicknamed our “Yoga Room” due to it being furnished with not much more than a chair, a few sticks in a vase and a yoga mat. I love this space as it is bright, airy and can be anything I make it to be. I have used it for more than one professional photo shoot (one photographer brought her large backdrop

This Weekend’s Surprise Birthday Party

My cousin J came up with the brilliant idea of throwing her sister-in-law (my cousin-in-law) a surprise 30th birthday party. Her, along with myself and our other cousin M (yes I have a lot of amazing cousin-friends in my family) got together and pooled resources!

Flawless + Natural Skin with Boscia B.B Cream

One of my favourite everyday products for my skin is the B.B Cream (in Light) by boscia. It has a better coverage than many other moisturizing B.B. Creams I have tried.
