3 Stand Out Jewellery Styles from PEI

I love coming home with something special from my travels. So when Zee and I headed for a short trip to Prince Edward Island, I couldn’t resist picking up some baubles. When you’re visiting a new place it’s best to experience the culture, the food and get a chance to mingle with the locals. Which is why Victoria by the Sea was one of my favourite places on the island. The town was picturesque in […]

Being Nice is in our Roots

Canada is a country made up of genuinely nice people. They have a reputation for being warm, kind, open hearted and welcoming. Every day I’m reminded that I live in a beautiful country that thrives on multiculturalism and diversity. At the same time, it’s disheartening to hear that across the globe racial tensions still exist. In Canada, I am accepted and welcomed with open arms.   On a recent trip to the east coast of […]

2017 is the Year to Rebrand Pink!

Pink was once known as a total Barbie colour (think Elle Woods from Legally Blonde) but is now making waves in 2017. It’s no longer a colour just for girly-girls but women and men are seen sporting it in every shade from peach and magenta to fuchsia and rose. Whether it’s head to toe, colour-blocked or simply a pop of colour – I love it all! Pink what you may not know is very versatile. […]

The Problem Solving Headphones

I don’t consider myself as someone who is overly active. However, when I go to the gym or take walks around the city, I like to listen to music on Bluetooth headphones. Now that’s probably really odd when you’re not engaging in heart-pumping workouts but trust me I’ve got my reasons. What I find with standard headphones is that they keep falling out of my ears. I’ve tried different ear pieces but nothing stays put. […]

A Fun Night of Friends, Music and Jewellery Making

I’ve always been interested in jewellery, especially costume jewellery and it’s something I sport every day. It could be something large or small on my wrist or on my ears. I’ve also been making my own jewellery for some time now; usually from bits and bobs I already own or upcycling an old piece of jewellery. The prospect of creating something completely new with the same set of materials amazes me. So, when I heard […]
