There is nothing quite like French girl style. We all try to emulate it, that cool, underdressed chic factor that seems to say “i’m put together without really giving a shit”. So to invite you to a chic Parisian-themed event, I only thought it appropriate to put together a French girl inspired look that consists of – you guessed – some serious staple pieces that can l...

The Dailey Method Review #Goals

Monday, October 10th, 2016

This week marks the end of my 30 day challenge with The Dailey Method. Last week marks the first week that I could keep my leg straight in an elevated hamstring stretch. Coincidence? I don’t think so. More than improving my flexibility however, I want to share how the Dailey Method changed my emotional and mental state. At the beginning of the Back to You 30 Day Challenge, I posted this – an initial review about how I felt going into this challenge, and asked myself a few questions t...

24 Hours With Chanel

Friday, October 7th, 2016

Contrary to the title of this post I did not get flown to Paris in a private jet to watch the technology inspired SS2017 Chanel show. That would have been a dream. But – I did come pretty close when I met with Dia Shams, owner of Valamode, and we chatted all things designer and of course – Chanel. As a luxury consignment matchmaker, Dia feels and looks like luxury. She is both a product and a reflection of her brand, and it suits her. A dedicated and hard worker from a young age, Dia...

Thinking About It: Manicures

Am I the only one who is way too impatient to paint their own nails? Every time I’ve tried, they end up ruined because I can’t be bothered to wait the 5,632,987,475 minutes it takes for them to dry completely. There are times when you think they’re dry, so you try doing menial tasks like – type on a keyboard, or open a door. And even then it seems to be too much. Somehow, dents happen out of nowhere. Pick up a set of keys? Hang up a shirt? ABSOLUTELY NOT. AN. OPTION. The...

I’ve figured out a way to keep summer alive amongst all the fluffy sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes of fall. It’s a super simple trick, really. Treat yourself to a pair of sunnies and wear them all the time. Even on cloudy days. Even on rainy days. Even AT NIGHT. Because they’re so awesome and they’ll remind you of heat waves, beaches and UV indexes, while still upping your outfit game. I’ve donned these Caroline Abram’s from Merivale Optometric to give this...

Braderie de Mode Gatineau: A Preview

Wednesday, September 28th, 2016

We often hear the words “shop local” but acting on them isn’t always easy. In the next two weeks however, you’ll have your chance at the Braderie de Mode Quebecoise on October 7/8 at the Hilton Lac Leamy in Gatineau. Imagine this: a room FULL of fashion from sumptuous designers hailing from Quebec – discounted anywhere between 50-80%. Not only is this a great occasion to increase the Canadian content in your closet, but it’s an opportunity to meet the designer...

Fall Wardrobe Update: A Fabulous Find

Thursday, September 22nd, 2016

Happy first day of fall! To celebrate the momentous season of PSL-drinking-toque-wearing-indulgence, I’ve had the immense pleasure of kicking off this sartorially charged season at Place d’Orleans (if there were such thing as a mall alma-mater, this would be mine), where their campaign – Fall for a Fabulous Find – challenged, and inspired me to find that hidden gem amongst a plethora of cozy options. I’ll tell you what I found – although decidedly un-cozy &#...

The Dailey Method: A Fitness Post

Thursday, September 15th, 2016

This may sound odd coming from the blog of someone who is frequently called a fashionista and who balks at the sight of visible nylon sockettes paired with pumps, but for as long as I can remember, fitness has always played a huge role in my life. Whether it was playing soccer throughout my childhood and teen years, or participating in track meets and running long distance since the tender age of 12 – I didn’t realize until recently that athleticism is right up there beside aestheti...

Aside from being one of the most dangerous islands to land on and the home of the very famous Cristiano Ronaldo ; Madeira is the island my mom and I travelled to after our time in Lisbon. And it turns out that for a tiny landmass autonomous to Portugal but still belonging to the country like a millennial trying to adult; Madeira has all the charms and delights of Portugal while still exuding the joys of island life. For a week, my mom and I enjoyed days by the rocky beach, walks along breathtaki...

  They say there’s a first for everything. Even at the age of 30, when I’ve had a few “firsts” and feel as though it’s becoming harder to be surprised, I had another “first” happen to me – and I’m still not sure how I feel about it. The other day, I was waiting to go on air for a daytime show and was chatting with some of the models I had hired, as I always do. When the subject of high school came up, I was excited to find that one of t...
