Spring Inspired Outfits

Winter has had its icy grip on us for too long. I don’t know about your city, but mine has been slammed with snow, ice and freezing temperatures… I know, I know, as a Canadian I am aware that winter is cold, but holy cow! Enough! I was feeling excited for the snow to (eventually) melt, so I put together some spring outfits for everyday occasions. First up, in the kitchen: Then, at work: Then, a casual weekend day: Finally, a laid back outfit for a lunch date: I really do love the spring time. I can’t wait!!! Hey — at...

Healthy Yummy Oatmeal

I’ve been loving oatmeal for breakfast. It is healthy, it fills me up, and it tastes delicious. INGREDIENTS: 1/2 cup almond milk mixed with 1/4 cup of water 1/4 cup of quick cook oat flakes (I use Oak Manor Organic) honey (or I’ve also used 100% pure maple syrup) a banana ground cinnamon INSTRUCTIONS: Bring the almond milk and water mixture to a boil in a small saucepan. Add the oats to the boiling liquid, and reduce heat. Keep an eye on the oats, and when it gets to a thick consistency, it’s time to add the banana. Use...

Kate Spade: YOU ROCK!

I caved. This is what happens when you’re sitting by the fire with a glass of wine surfing the web. Money doesn’t seem to be important at times like this. Honestly though, I scored quite the deal. I was just perusing katespade.com and happened to see a promo code that gets you an extra 25% off sale prices. Then I stumbled upon one of the most beautiful handbags I have ever seen. It is called the “BAXTER STREET LARGE CATALINA” in the colour Saddle (a camel brown).         <– RIGHT?!?!...

New Year's Resolutions: Where the Heck do I Start?

Ahh… the time of year when we make resolutions. “This year I am going to quit smoking, lose 50 pounds, get a better job…” the list goes on. It can be very stressful and frustrating when making a list of resolutions. Is there even a point?! Hopefully I can help. I make quarterly goals. These are not “resolutions” so to speak, they are a list of things that I would like to accomplish during the year.  I start late December, and make a list of 4-5 goals that I want to achieve by the end of March. Then in...

Stylish Jackets For Fall

Stylish Jackets For Fall

This fall, I want to invest in a nice jacket (or 5). I’ve narrowed it down to 3:   From left: Aritzia Harlem Jacket $135 (here) Army Green Rivet Hooded Cotton Blend Parka Coat $74 (here) Danier Leather Jacket $349 (here) I do really want to invest in a good leather jacket. I always buy the cheap fake leather ones, and they do not last long at all. Maybe that’s what I’ll save up for, or ask for for Christmas or something — early presents are the best! Are you looking at investing in a good jacket this fall/winter?...

Bedroom Update: Fall 2013

Fall is a great time to make your bedroom more inviting and cozy! I just ordered a new duvet cover and sheet set from Beyondtherack.com, and I can’t wait to get it in the mail!   The duvet cover set was $109.99 (regularly $260.00). It is ruched, and it comes with a duvet cover, two shams and three decorative cushions. The sheet set was $29.99 and it’s 650 thread count; pretty darn luxurious for a great price! It comes with a flat sheet, a fitted sheet, and 2 pillowcases. I’m really excited to see how it looks in our...

Mini Drugstore Haul

I went shopping! Ok, so I went to the drugstore for a few things. I really needed a sleep aid, because I have not been sleeping well at all, if I even catch a wink.   From Left to Right (clockwise): Gravol ($8.99): for my upset tummy! We ran out… Don’t even know why I included this, but I did. Indeed Laboratories’ Pepta Bright, Fade to Bright ($34.99): this is supposed to “improve skin clarity while diminishing the appearance of dark spots and hyper-pigmentation, leaving a more radiant skin tone”. I will...

The Future: One of Life's Hardest Questions

I am currently going through a bit of a dilemma. I am trying to decide what I want to do when I “grow up”. I’m sure a lot of people can relate. We are forced to choose what our careers will be at the ripe age of 18. When I was 18, I had no idea, but randomly chose Psychology. Well, to say the least, that failed miserably. I flunked out of university after the first semester. I then decided I wanted to go to college for business… okay no problem. Business is everywhere; it’s a great field to get into. Well, I...
