Ending Festival Fashion Week on a High Note! Style Domination and YOW City Style Store Feature: NRML Select

Today’s store feature on NRML Select will mark the last in my weeklong store feature collaboration with Katie of YOW City Style.  This has been one of the most fun projects I have ever completed!  A huge thank you to VAM Boutique, Neon Clothing Corp., Twiss & Webber, Victoire, NRML Select, Vincent and Top of the World for opening your doors to us! We have met a bunch of wonderful people and learned a lot during this process. Best of all, we have made a ton of friends and we are thrilled to feature and promote these boutiques to our readers!

Westboro is one of my favourite neightbourhoods in Ottawa (anywhere, for that matter actually).  Just a little west of the downtown core, Westboro is a wonderful mix of beautiful homes, great restaurants (be sure to check out Pure Kitchen), cool and interesting people, and some of the best boutiques in the city – NRML Select being one of them.

Located on Richmond Road in the middle of Westboro’s eclectic shopping strip, NRML Select is your go-to shop for such luxe brands as Comme des Garçons PLAYWhitney Eve, Mink Pink, Triwa, Rag & Bone and Malin+Goetz. I was pleasantly surprised when I walked into this spacious boutique.  My little sisters always told me how cool this store was, but I never had the opportunity to check it out. Imagine my delight at seeing a big selection of Daniel Wellington watches and a collection of amazing Rebecca Minkoff bags that I’d never seen before! SCORE!  It was abundantly clear that you could buy an entire festival fashion wardrobe from NRML Select, as they offered a covetable selection of cool footwear, rompers, palazzo pants, bomber jackets, cute tees, tanks, dresses…you name it, they have it and we want it.

Canadian Tulip Festival Instameet! Instagrammers Unite!

Hi all!

Photography is something that I have always been interested in.  I remember being 12-years-old, saving up all of my Canadian Tire money to buy a Kodak 110mm camera.  Wow.  I’m old.  And for all of you who are mystified by “Canadian Tire” money, it’s a fake currency given out by one of Canada’s most popular hardware stores.  It’s like Monopoly money that you can only use at that store.  My Dad, being a huge Mr. Fixit, it would shop there and hand me all of that Canadian Tire cash. LOL…but I digress…

Kodak 110mm camera. Wow. I’m really dating myself here.

When I graduated at 17, my parents helped me buy my first real camera, a 35mm Pentax.  I loved that thing like people love their first born.  It went everywhere with me, and I have thousands of printed pictures to prove it. Continue reading Canadian Tulip Festival Instameet! Instagrammers Unite!

Prettying Up Your Blog: 6 Secrets For Taking the Best iPhone Photos

*information courtesy of Stylecaster

I love photography.  I’ve been fortunate enough to collect some black and white prints by a few reknown Canadian photographers. Every time I look at them though, I think to myself: “I wish I could take such clear, fantastic shots!”

Being obsessed with Instagram and Twitter, I’ve seen my share of beautiful pics taken by both amateurs and pros.  I’ve also seen what seems like hundreds of thousands of terrible shots too.   Continue reading Prettying Up Your Blog: 6 Secrets For Taking the Best iPhone Photos
