“April is a promise that May is bound to keep.” – Hal Borland

Spring is well underway and it’s the perfect time to reflect on life’s happenings. I thought this would be a fun way to “take stock of my life” each season and share with you all. Enjoy! Continue reading Taking Stock No.1

A Day at Smudge Beauty Bar

A Day at Smudge Beauty Bar

Inspired by our latest photoshoots together, my friend Emilie and I decided to switch it up from outdoor locations and take things inside. Emilie, with her keen eye for fashion and architecture suggested Smudge Beauty Bar, a relatively new spa which opened in Ottawa last year on Dalhousie Street…home to many an up and coming boutique.

How To Get That Perfect Shot – My Favourite Photos of 2015

I’ve always enjoyed photography. It’s an art form that I’ve had an interest in since I was a kid. There is something about capturing a touching moment, fun times, incredible landscapes or unbelievable happenings that really resonates with me.

The actual camera itself fascinates me too. How a relatively simple little machine can produce such beautiful art is incredible. Some great examples below from the Time Magazine annual photography contest can attest to this. Continue reading How To Get That Perfect Shot – My Favourite Photos of 2015

A Walk In the Woods

The key to surviving the cold is to bundle up and enjoy it. Thankfully, instead of frostbitten days, we are enjoying an unseasonably warm winter. Hibernating actually seems less like a reasonable option this year.

My sweet friend Emilie contacted me to go scope out the trails in Beechwood in search of some photo inspiration and I am so happy we did. Continue reading A Walk In the Woods

Shepherd’s Ooh ‘n Ahh Fashion Show: A Fundraiser Supporting the Youville Centre

Ahhh…I can’t say enough great things about Shepherd’s – Ottawa’s destination for beautiful, finely made clothing.  One of my favourite stores for years, it is one of the last stores I know of that specializes in quality design, stylish offerings and more sparkling jewelry than any girl’s heart can take.

When the kind staff at Shepherd’s reached out to me to model in their fabulous Ooh ‘n Ahh Fashion Show, I jumped at the chance! I was even more thrilled to learn that this event would be benefitting the Youville Centre. Continue reading Shepherd’s Ooh ‘n Ahh Fashion Show: A Fundraiser Supporting the Youville Centre

SD Beauty Review: Shiseido White Lucent Anti-Dark Circles Eye Cream

A year spent battling allergies has left me with some battle scars in the form of terrible dark circles.  I won’t lie – the last year has been tough for me health-wise. After a battery of tests, it was determined that I have a pretty significant allergy to cats, and it broke my heart to have to give up my best buddy Jones to a close family friend. Not a day goes by that I don’t miss him terribly, but I’m comforted that she’s taking wonderful care of him. Continue reading SD Beauty Review: Shiseido White Lucent Anti-Dark Circles Eye Cream

SD Beauty Review: Chanel Le Vernis Vert Obscur Nail Polish

With the arrival of fall comes the arrival of dark, moody nail polishes – my favourite.  Personally, I wear vampy shades all year round because I love the look.

Now, I have a severe nail polish addiction.  With a collection at about 250+ bottles strong, I have started buying my nail polishes a little more carefully, as I believe I pretty much own every single colour under the sun. Continue reading SD Beauty Review: Chanel Le Vernis Vert Obscur Nail Polish
