White Out

A few weeks ago, I was invited to the “Meet Your New Jeans With Emily Luciano” event hosted by Topshop Canada and The Hudson’s Bay Company. I hopped at the chance to see Emily Luciano in person, as she is a huge source of fashion inspiration of mine. An Ottawa native, Emily Luciano has grown her Instagram account to a startling 118,000 followers over the course of only one year in addition to a super stylish blog with a readership just as big. Style oozing out of every single one of her pores, I wanted to see this stylish young lady in action. Continue reading White Out

ConnectOtt Dinner and Networking Event – March 31, 2016

When I started my blog in January 2015, it was simply an outlet for me to express my thoughts and opinions on all things fashion and beauty. It was also a great way to connect with my husband who was on a work assignment in the South Pacific, and with my family living in Europe.

Easter Chic: Brightening Up The Wardrobe For Spring

While visiting my sister in Toronto a few weeks ago, I popped into my not-so-secret favourite store, Aritzia, and picked up a few items that instantly made me feel less freezing cold and looking forward to spring. I had been on the hunt for a huge, cozy blanket scarf for months to keep me from freezing to death in my office, and Aritzia had more than enough to choose from.

#FeatureFriday: Julianne Buchholz, Haute Couture Fashion Designer

I love haute couture. It’s fashion at its finest…true art. From Alexander McQueen to Dior, haute couture has proven to be an art form so beautiful and unique, that I often look at these creations in wonder while marvelling “How did they do that?” and “I’ve never seen fabric so beautiful!”

#BeautySpotlight Part 1: Leonor Greyl Paris Soin Naturel Du Cheveu (…And Best Beauty Find Of The Year)

A head full of thick, lustrous, shiny hair is as exciting and drool-worthy to me as winning the Powerball Lottery. For as long as I can remember, gorgeous hair has been something that I value highly. I can’t help it. I will see a head full of gorgeous, bouncy curls, or thick, perfect blonde beach waves, or gorgeous natural kinks and something inside me wants to reach out and play with that hair! Inappropriate? Yes. Am I alone? No (maybe). Continue reading #BeautySpotlight Part 1: Leonor Greyl Paris Soin Naturel Du Cheveu (…And Best Beauty Find Of The Year)

Blogging 101: A Night With University of Ottawa’s Telfer Marketing Association

I live my life by the Golden Rule – “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”. Throughout the years, I have been helped by many great people. I don’t think I could have gotten to where I am now without many helping hands. While I try to give back every day to show thanks, this particular opportunity was a way to give back in spades.
