Getting Ready for Fall

Dress: Winners | Booties: c/o Cat Footwear | Clutch: c/o Smart Set | Bangles: from Pakistan | Earrings + Necklace: Butterfly Beads

Autumn is my favourite season of the year. It's one of the reasons why James and I have decided to get married on Thanksgiving weekend but I also just love the darker, warmer colours and cute booties that come back around this time as well. I always start to feel more inspired (about life in general) in September. Perhaps it's a back-to-school thing that has stuck with me… even though I'm not in school anymore.

The "Megs Plaid" booties from Cat Footwear's fall/winter collection are absolutely perfect for transitioning into the colder seasons. The pattern is subtle and doesn't scream "autumn", so you can easily wear them as the summer comes to an end with skater skirts or cropped jeans. They are also insulated and warm, so I'm certain they will keep me cozy in once it starts to get chilly!

Stay tuned for more peaks at Cat Footwear's new collection and other exciting news that I have to share in the next few weeks.

Girls Night In at Me & T Studio

A few weeks ago I was invited to spend an evening at Me & T Studio with Elaine Atkins (Toronto Beauty Reviews) and Christine Pantazis. I wasn't familiar with the studio but the team offered to pamper us for an evening with mani/pedis and delicious treats, so I couldn't pass up the opportunity.

When I got to Me & T Studio (1568 Yonge St, Toronto) I was surprised by how pretty the salon was! Everything was styled to perfection.

Summer Update

When the year started, a friend of mine told me 2014 will be one of the busiest years of my life. The project manager in me immediately told them that this wouldn't happen; but with wedding planning, an intense work schedule, condo hunting AND all my side projects (including this wonderful blog), I am now starting to realize that they were right.

Not that I'm complaining because I'm truly grateful for all that I've achieved at 25-years-old and am super excited about each of the things mentioned above, but it does get a little hectic and overwhelming as I have to divide my time each day to make sure I take care of everything I need to get done.

After working non-stop for the last 7 months I finally took a little vacay to New Jersey with family to celebrate my cousin's wedding. It was nice to spend quality time with her before she got married, and great to see all my other cousins and introduce them to James. I decided not to take my laptop so I could get away 100% and truly just enjoy being offline.

It's good to back home and at work. My blog is now 2-years-old, which is exciting and a bit hard to believe. I really hope to get back into the routine of writing regularly again; there are so many drafts that I need to complete. I also have some fun campaigns that I'll be launching soon, stay tuned!

My Ombré Experience at Oskar on Scollard

In the heart of Yorkville filled with men in suits and women with shopping bags, there lies a beautiful hair studio called Oskar on Scollard (68 Scollard, Toronto). The moment I walked in I was immediately drawn to the colour palette, unique furniture and chandeliers on the ceiling. I knew that I'd love it here.
