Creating Meaningful Connections Through Curated Experiences

A workshop, a meet-up, a class, an experience? I’m not sure what exactly to call the last four weeks at her-people but I would say it was a culmination of all four and then some. I signed up for the “course” not knowing anything about who would be conducting the workshops, where they would be held or even the people behind the idea. Which for me is pretty scary. I am not an online shopper […]

Styling “Living Coral” – Pantone’s Colour of the Year

Pantone’s colour of the year – Living Coral – was announced last month and with the New Year here, expect to see it in stores very soon. I took a jumpstart on introducing Living Coral into my closet with a mock neck. If you’ve been following me for a while you’ll know this is my colour, thus the colour I chose to represent this blog. Why? It literally brings a smile to my face. It’s […]

Why I Shop Local and from Small Businesses

I’ll admit it – I love shopping at the mall and even more if I can score a great discount. But I also love browsing independent stores and shopping from local makers. There are times when I just want a trendy bag or shirt seen in a store window so I buy it. This even goes for basic household items you have to buy at big box stores. Which I think is okay, as long […]

A Jewelry Designer’s Inspiring Story of Recovery and Self-care

If you believe that things happen for a reason, then my introduction to Brittney of Aiyana Jewelry was fate. Her incredible journey of recovery from Late Stage Lyme Disease is a shout out to everyone looking for the next best thing while neglecting self-care practices. We are all striving to make our mark but only seem to stop when our bodies fail us. Picking yourself up again is a challenge you often face alone. For Brittney, […]

How to Make a Dazzling Beaded Bracelet

This is one beaded bracelet that everyone will be asking you about! I’ve only worn it out twice and it has been all compliments and “OMG, you made that?!” Trust me, when I say it’s so easy. I only had to start over once because I hadn’t measured my wrist properly but I’m giving you the measurements so there shouldn’t be any problems 🙂 Materials Beads (I choose 2 different kinds) Hemp cord (20 inches) […]

New Year, New Accessories: Top 2018 Trends

This weekend was blissful. The weather was amazing considering its end of January. But come today, we have major snow! It’s incredibly dark outside and it’s only 3 pm. So if you’re like me and reside in a city/country where snow and rain are inevitable, cheer up. Spring trends are hitting stores 🙂 I can’t wait to bring out brighter hues and of course some ultraviolet (which I’ll transition more into lavender). Taking inspiration from […]

Exploring Sustainable Fashion with This Ilk

I was first introduced to This Ilk at Inland. Designer, Tamara Bavdek’s jewellery style and designs were nothing like I had ever seen. The Indica necklace especially caught my eye and was gifted to me by the hubz. Unfortunately, I didn’t meet Tamara at the event but I reached out for a chance to know more about This Ilk. Luckily, she was heading down to Toronto for the One-of-a Kind Show and this gave me […]

It’s Going to be my Year – Goals for 2018

The coming of the new year gives you the chance to reflect and plan for the next year. It’s the perfect time to start something new or re-enforce your existing goals. There are a number of things I hope to accomplish this year in regards to this blog and my life. Every year I think about goals but never write them down to actively work towards achieving them. For 2018, I bought a pretty journal […]

Birthday No. 28 + 2017 Reflection

I celebrated my 28th birthday this month. As I get older, birthday’s really freak me out. Usually, a month before I’ll start panicking about not being able to accomplish everything I set out to do. However, this year was different. I was prepared and actually excited for the day. So much so, that I majorly splurged on a pair of sneakers well before my birthday 😛 This year I figured out what career path I […]
