Girls' Weekend at the JW Marriott The Rousseau Muskoka

Spending time with your girlfriends is so good for your soul - they share your experiences, offer support - and make you laugh until you cry! I have good intentions about scheduling meet-ups - but often, day-to-day responsibilities get in the way and plans get postponed.

A great solution for this is to book a girls' weekend away. Once you block off this time for you and your friends, you force yourself to make all your other plans around it. You cram in work ahead of time, and realize that the world won't fall apart while you're gone. And when you return, you'll be the best version of yourself - recharged and twice as efficient!

La Vie En Rose Winter Pajamas

Eleni, Jenelle, Mandy and I recently spent the weekend at the JW Marriott The Rousseau Muskoka. You've probably noticed that we collaborate quite a bit on blog projects - and that's because we're good friends who love spending time together! We met through blogging, and while we love fashion and frivolity - we're also quite similar in other ways. We're down-to-earth, optimistic, and our personalities complement each other. For example, on this trip, Eleni and I were the list-makers - planning and checking off what we need to do, Jenelle was our camera guru (many of these photos were selfies set up by Jenelle using a timer + remote) and Mandy is just so energetic and capable - she drove us from Toronto to Muskoka and back in a ginourmous truck, and then drove on to work on some more blog projects before heading home!

Keeping Warm in Staples from Amazon Canada

The weather has been all over the place recently - some days it still feels like Fall (yay!), and on others, you can feel the Winter chill. I never like being caught out in the cold, so I've been stocking up on cozy essentials.

Choosing between a St Anne Petite and a Regular St Anne Tote from Barrington Gifts

"You really like those bags with your name on it, huh?" - recent comment from a friend. It's true - I've been using my Barrington St Anne Monogram Totes non-stop! I've written about my St Anne's Tote here, and I've now added the St Anne Petite to my collection.

Some readers have messaged me about which size I would recommend - so I wrote all my thoughts down in this post!

Running Errands or Working Out?

Do you work out regularly? I wish I did -  there are so many benefits for both your physical and mental health. But I'm caught in that cycle - I'm too tired to exercise, and then I'm tired BECAUSE I don't exercise!

I've tried making it into a daily habit - just hopping on the elliptical and telling myself it's ok to go at a slow pace, something is better than nothing. But I struggle with being consistent...does anyone else have that problem - and if so - any tips? My friend S and I are thinking of signing up for an exercise class once a week, to get us into a healthier pattern. An Orange Theory Fitness recently opened up in our neighbourhood - so we may give that a try!

Holiday Ouftit Ideas - What to Wear to Brunch, Office Parties, Family Get-Togethers and New Years

For our latest collaboration with Oshawa Centre, I met up with my blogger besties and put together outfit ideas on what to wear to various festive events. I chose a glam holiday look - perfect for a New Years Eve party!

Dressing up for holiday parties is so much fun, because you can incorporate multiple luxe textures (sparkles / metallics / faux fur) in one outfit. I picked out a shimmery satin dress from H&M, and paired it with a GAP faux fur vest for warmth.

The Perfect Pink Coat for Fall and Winter

It's been a long search - but I've finally found the perfect pink coat for Winter! As most of you know, pink is my happy colour - and the more that I can incorporate into my wardrobe, the better! But finding the right coat hasn't been easy...

Most pink coats I found were made of a lighter material, and were only suitable for Fall. This Pink Wrap Wool Blend Coat from Reitmans can be worn in the Fall, but the wool blend fabric helps block the Winter chill too!

Skincare for Sweater Weather with Soap & Glory

It's definitely sweater weather in Toronto now - and as the weather cools down, my skin starts feeling tight, scaly and dry.


In the colder months, I HAVE to switch out my shower gel and light lotion for more hydrating products - and in today's post I'm sharing my current body skincare routine, using scrumptiously-scented products from Soap & Glory!

Putting Together a Weekend Fall Uniform with Mark's

Having a formula makes getting dressed so much easier. You don't have to waste time putting together outfits - just pick one item from each category, and you're good to go!

For the weekends in Fall, I like to use the following formula: pom pom hat + blanket scarf + soft tunic + warm leggings + comfy boots! In today's post, I'm dressed head-to-toe in Mark's featuring clothing from the Sung by Alfred Sung range.
