Jean on Jean #DailyOutfit

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a lovely weekend! I attended the sold-out show The Balconies put on Saturday at Lee’s Palace. Couldn’t be more excited about their current success! Offner and I also spent time antiquing in Newmarket with the lovely Chevy Cruze Diesel¬†I had been driving all week. Check back soon for a full recap of my #ChevyDrive adventure from this past week!

Got a super long 6 day work week ahead but counting down the days until my next trip in less than two weeks. Can’t wait to soak in the Miami sun!!

Today’s outfit: Jean on jean on leather… and a banana? Never hurts to have a little fun ūüėČ

Camo Friday #DailyOutfit

Yesterday I took the rad Chevy Cruze I’ve been test driving all week (stay tuned for a special blog post early next week!) to Skyzone Mississauga, an indoor trampoline park I’d been dying to try out for months. The lovely Hannah Georgas had filmed one of her latest music videos there. You can check it out below. I was extremely excited to bring out my inner kid for an hour and try all sorts of things.¬†It’s great physical activity and lot’s of fun! I tried the foam pit, all the different trampolines, dodgeball and basketball.¬†If ever you’re interested in checking it out, they have a few locations in the Toronto area, elsewhere in Canada and also in the US. It’s $14 for an hour and $2 for the special socks they make you wear. Looking forward to my next visit!

Winter Grunge #DailyOutfit

Yesterday was a big day for my friends The Balconies! They finally launched their brand new record Fast Motions after almost a two year delay. I couldn’t be more stoked for these guys. I truly believe they’ve got what it takes to take on the world with their infectious guitar-driven rock tracks! If you haven’t already, make sure you listen to Fast Motions. For Canadians, you can check it out here & for everyone else here. Stay tuned as they’ll be coming to a city near you this winter, spring and summer!photo (61)¬†Also, personally very excited on getting my first official styling credit in the album, yay!

K.I.S.S. #DailyOutfit

We’ve all heard of the KISS acronym – Keep it simple, stupid. One thing I didn’t know is that the principle was originally noted by the US Navy in 1960 as a design principle. They noted that “simplicity¬†should be a key goal in¬†design¬†and unnecessary complexity should be avoided“. Though I rarely dress with principles in mind, today’s outfit totally made me think of KISS. I often boggle my brain trying to find a ton of accessories and jewelry to add to my outfit but today, I kept the whole look SIMPLE! And you know what? It was kind of refreshing!

1st Post of 2014! #DailyOutfit

Happy New Year everyone! Hope you’ve all had amazing holidays!! After a month-long break I’m excited to be back home and back to blogging. I took a much needed break but am now filled with more energy than ever. Excited to see what 2014 has in store!

What did you guys get up to during the break? I had the opportunity to travel to France, Montreal and the US. I can’t wait to share my travel adventures with you all. I’ll be posting a special France and Stowe blog in the next couple of days. Looking forward to sharing some of my favorite memories from the trip!

For my first outfit of the year, I’m doing purple and black. I love the delicate bracelet from Lyon designer Sophie Deschamps¬†I received as a gift while I was in France. Everyone in France are wearing them right now. Not only can they be worn all the time but they’re also easily stackable. Whenever I look at it, I’m reminded of the wonderful time I had!

eLUXE x Song Of Style #DailyOutfit

I was delighted to attend the launch of the eLUXE x Song Of Style capsule collection in Toronto tonight. Like 1.2 million other people, I’ve been following Aimee Song‘s instagram/twitter/blog for the last year and a half. Not only am I a fan of her incredible fashion sense, I also love the fact that she’s traveling the world living her dream. I really respect and admire the life she’s created for herself, it’s really inspiring to see!

What’s weird about social media is even if you’ve never met the person before, you feel like you somehow know them. This evening, I got to meet the lovely Aimee for a few minutes. As expected, she was a total sweetheart! She was gracious enough to pose for photos and chat with all the girls that had gathered at the event!

Props to eLUXE for having thought of this collaboration with Aimee. There’s no doubt in my mind that it will be SUPER successful. The launch tonight was really cute – all the mannequins had been personally styled by Aimee herself, they had refreshments, giveaways and even had a candy bar!

Stoked on the two pieces I got tonight! Will be perfect for my upcoming travels! You can check out the collection here. #DoEpicChic #VoiLÀ

Purply #DailyOutfit

Happy Monday everyone!

Delighted that there are only two Mondays left (including today!!) before I leave for France!¬†So excited! I’m also really happy to be going to a special Porter Airlines event this evening. I’m a proud supPorter of Porter’s expansion plans. The local airline has been key in not only my career development but also in keeping family and friends close over the past couple of years.

For the event, I’ve dressed up in this cute bodycon purply dress that I got last season at H&M. It’s probably the comfiest dress you could ever own plus it also keeps me warm with its long sleeves. I’m not a big purple fan but I find that this color suits my red locks pretty well.

A Few Of My Favorite Things

I remember being a child and making a Christmas present list every year for Santa Claus and then as I got older for my parents. Though I don’t make lists anymore (because let’s be honest, I have more than I could ever need – I’m healthy, I’m surrounded by amazing friends and family, I have a roof over my head, I get to eat 3 meals a day and I get to do things I love!), I thought it’d be fun to make a fake fashion holiday wish list this year. There are just so many beautiful garments that exist in the world, a girl can dream can’t she? Here are a few of my favorite things…

Leopard is the New Black #DailyOutfit

Happy Friday everyone! Have you guys been taking advantage of all the Black Friday sales going on right now?

I had the best evening yesterday at Body Blitz Spa yesterday with my friend Jacquie. She and I went to enjoy their different pools and steam rooms as well as a nice aromatherapy massage. I love that they’re located right downtown and that they’re a women-only facility. They also had a yummy juice, smoothie and tea bar. The entire staff was delightful. I had such a relaxation evening! I highly recommend checking them out if you’re looking for the best in spa care. Felt so zen after!

I’ve definitely been hearing a lot of people saying “Leopard is the new black” this season and if you’ve been following my posts, you know that I’m leopard-obsessed so I’m glad that I’m not the only one. For today’s outfit, I’m wearing my super comfy leopard leggings, a lace top as well as gold/gold brass jewels!
