A few weeks ago, CTV Ottawa invited me to take them around one of my favorite neighborhoods in Toronto: Yorkville. I love this area; it’s perfect for window shopping, people watching and has endless options for food & fashion.
You can check out my segment here shot in the lovely Pink Tartan store!
Hope you’re having a great day xo!
I found this knit top at Zara a few weeks ago and I honestly fell in love with it right away. It’s funny because as soon as I brought it home and styled in with a different skirt, I immediately realized I looked just like Velma Dinkley from Scooby Doo!
The joke has been a run on with my friends ever since and despite poking fun, it’s still one of my favorite pieces of the summer. I put this set together for a day full of client meetings and it’s bright pop of color mixed with this bold printed skirt was definitely a hit. These sandals are also incredibly comfortable which is an added bonus when you spend your workday on the go.
Do you have any summer favorites you’re sporting this season?

I’ve had a few emails asking what I keep in my workout bag. I tend to workout at all times but usually love to get it in before work or during my lunch break. I will certainly be sharing my workout tips in a post shortly but for now, here are a few of my favorite items that keep my skin and hair primp for those early morning, midday and on-the-go workouts.
If there’s anything you would like me to write about or create a video on YouTube for, simply leave a comment below or on my YouTube page here!
Hope you enjoy!
While I have a penchant for dress up and love getting all dolled, I am definitely a boho girl at heart. There’s something about the relaxed style that perfectly pairs comfort with creativity and this was by far the cutest boho outfit the Risqué Boutique girls could have selected.
It’s super feminine and fun…this outfit left me longing for hippie moments and long summer days spent in the park. This would be the perfect music festival look (maybe trade the heels for some Converse) and works so well with some simple beach waves.
Again, I wanted to give a special thank you to Hannah and Della at Risqué Boutique for allowing me to shoot with them! The girls were truly a pleasure to work with, I love all of the items they styled and cannot wait to work with them again!

Wedding season is in full swing and I am excited for a month full of weekend weddings at gorgeous and sunny outdoor locations! The opportunity to play dress up is second nature to me and I just loved this dress I got on sale from Shopbop for my first wedding of the season! My dress is available here and they have such a beautiful selection of similar items still on sale that I just had to pick a few more favourites for you.
Check them out here, here, here, here and here.
Clearly I’m thinking pink but let me know which ones you’re currently craving in a comment below.
As for dressing for the occasion a few tips to help make your season as sweet and stylish as possible:
Choose an item that is just above the knee ~ you definitely don’t want to go too short or tight for a wedding.
Invest in items that are not only comfortable but excellent quality – as you enter your mid/late 20s weddings will become more and more of regular event and the costs add up ~ you definitely want to purchase items you can repeat but that are also comfortable to last the full day in!
Find colours and patterns that work for you and when in doubt, don’t shy away from black ~ I know what colours work for me (cobalt blue and fushia pink hiiiii) that I can wear to a spring/summer wedding and those to rock into the fall. It’s important to know what colours or prints your comfortable with because dress shopping can be tedious and often we can find ourselves looking for something in a pinch. And most certainly don’t be afraid to rock black, it’s elegant and classic and nothing makes a woman feel more confident than a LBD.
Had a few people asking about my brown rice bowl recipe I posted on Instagram last night. I just boil brown rice with a mix of water & consommé. I then take shrimp, de-shell it and marinate it in a mixture of 2 chopped garlic cloves, a handful of chopped parsley, salt, pepper and the juice of half a lemon (for about 10-15 shrimp — this sounds like a lot but the flavor gets sautéed with the veggies once cooking).
I then defrost a frozen organic vegetable medley, sauté my shrimp in a little EVOO and add the veggies once the shrimp is almost cooked. I think season with a little more salt and pepper to taste and maybe a splash of garlic powder and then cover this on low heat to allow the veggies to absorb some of the flavor. I think serve it on a bed of brown rice and voila, we have our homemade rice bowl!
