This Beautiful Day Interview

The lovely Lisa Ng from The Hip & Urban Girl recently relocated to Los Angeles and has started a fab new blog for women called This Beautiful Day. I was beyond thrilled to be featured in her This Beautiful Life section alongside some very inspirational women. Thanks so much Lisa!

HUG Feature

I’m a big fan of The Hip & Urban Girl Toronto-based site that was started by Lisa and Wendy. I’ve attended a handful of their events since I moved to Toronto. I was honored to be featured as one of their Hip & Urban Girls of the Week. Thanks for this opportunity ladies!

Cookies & Champagne #DailyOutfit

Happy Tuesday everyone! Really looking forward to Hip Urban Girl‘s Cookies & Champagne event taking place at the Steamwhistle Roundhouse this evening. I was lucky to be featured as one of their Hip Urban Girl’s of the Week last month (check out the lovely feature here) so I’m really excited to see Lisa and Wendy tonight. I’m a big fan of their site and all of the events they’ve been organizing over the years. This will be my first time attending their annual cookie party tonight, can’t wait!

For the occasion, I’m wearing a houndstooth print black and white skirt, grey v-neck tee with faux leather sleeves, grey booties (so not a good idea, I fell flat on my face this morning on the sidewalk lol) and mixed metal vintage jewels.
