This weekend we celebrated Ken’s birthday. Whenever it’s a special occasion we love to use the excuse to go for Sunday brunch.
I made my first online purchase on aritzia.ca. I have been a regular customer at Aritzia in store for over a decade. I have watched them grow from a small obscure store at Yorkdale in Toronto (not sure where their first store was, but that was the first store I discovered), to this amazingly popular brand that has crossed borders. I made my purchase during their big Spring sale so all the items I purchased were on sale. I also combined my order with my sister so I could take advantage of the free shipping after $150. I am only going to include the items that I purchased for myself in this review.
Welcome back 90’s! I was a teeny bopper during the late nineties and this look was inspired by one of my favourite Brit Pop girl bands (Number One being Spice Girls obvi!), All Saints. If you need a refresher or are under the age of 25 check out the video after the jump.
It’s been about a hot minute since I’ve posted. I’ve been busy. Busy making a baby! We welcomed our son Lincoln to the world on February 5, 2015. I wanted to share my birth story with you. It’s an experience I’ll never forget but the details can get hazy over time. I wanted to write it all down while it was all fresh, but it seemed like such a long story. So I decided to record a video.
Now that you’re not pregnant anymore you probably thought you would be free to shop and wear regular clothes again. WRONG!
Red lipstick! Foundation! Makeup stains! That terrifying moment as you watch your makeup fall out of your hands and land on your beautiful white or light furniture marring it’s pristine complexion. Have no fear, there’s an easy way to get it out!
We recently went on our baby moon to Cuba. We did a one week trip splitting our time in half between the city, Havana and the beaches, Varadero. I was about 21 weeks (5 months) along in my pregnancy when we embarked on our trip. This is suggested as the golden period to travel so we took advantage of the small window where I was feeling my best and energetic to embark on one last hurrah as a married couple with no kids.
If I haven’t said it before (which I’m sure I have), I’ll say it again. Fall is my favourite season! I love to layer up and it makes for an endless array of looks. This here is my go to Sunday Fall go to look.
Fall is my favourite season. The falling leaves give beauty to the landscape, the crisp air is refreshing after the hot summer and not to mention all the fun fall activities. Every year I try to make a point to embark on a few fall traditions to really get the most of the beautiful season.
