Olive in the Winter

Top: Forever 21 | Pants: Forever 21 (similar) | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff | Shoes: c/o Nine West 

This season I've been exploring a lot of darker colours and figuring how to pair them together. I was surprised to see how complementing grey and dark olive are of each other. The trick is to add a brighter shade in between so that the two colours stand out instead of blending in too much. The mix of orange and olive also show off the grey print more.

I hope you're all excited and gearing up for the holidays! I'm wrapping up my last week of work for the year and then can't wait to take some time off and enjoy eating LOTS with family and friends.

Gift Ideas from The Body Shop

If you're anything like me and still need to do some of your shopping, I know the perfect place to pick something up for the people in your life: The Body Shop! Almost every woman has a collection from there that they gravitate towards and although most men won't admit it publicly, they're usually pretty satisfied with products from The Body Shop as well.

My favourite part about The Body Shop is that they have gift sets in different price ranges that are nicely packaged, so you don't even have to go through the hassle of gift wrapping... unless you enjoy it. ;)

Tips for a Long-lasting Relationship

If you've been following my blog or social media channels you probably know that I got married to the man of my dreams about two months ago. We've been together for more than five years and while he initially proposed really early in our relationship, we didn't begin planning the wedding until late last year.
