Innovative Designers at the Inland Show

Every time I walk into this building I’m amazed by the architecture and all the natural light the architect has allowed flowing through. Thus, it’s an apt place to hold a fashion design exhibition supporting different style designers that are all made in Canada. Welcome to the fall Inland show. I’m a fan of anything shiny, which is why Chayle’s booth caught my eye. What originally looked like jewellery made from foil was actually silver […]

Etsy Brings 125 Talented Designers to Made in Canada

There’s no denying that Etsy has emerged as the online marketplace for DIY, handcrafted, and one-of-a-kind goods in recent years. This Saturday I got to see and purchase some of those amazing designs at the MaRs Discovery Centre. This particular event featured 125 vendors selling everything from fashion accessories to baby products to crafts and even vintage items. The atrium was abuzz with people and exciting things. My addiction to jewellery caused me to stop at every fashion-related booth […]

Shopping Inland Connects People with Purposeful Brands

With summer coming to an end (thanks to the chill in the air) don’t think the fun’s over. Fall in Toronto brings beautiful scenery and some awesome Canadian shows like Inland. I had the opportunity to attend the previous show in May. It housed over 65 Canadian designers where more than 95% of the collections on display were handmade or manufactured in Canada. What a way to support local talent! I’m invested in purchasing local […]

Baubles that Elevated my Eid ul Azha Outfits

Time flies – I’m already a month into launching this blog (yay!) and Eid ul Azha just ended too. What is Eid ul Azha? It is quite literally “the feast of the sacrifice.” What you mostly hear about is the sacrifice of animals, but it’s more than that. The religious significance is summed up with how much we are willing to give up for God. In reference, Prophet Ibrahim, upon the wishes of God, sacrificed […]

Completed DIY bracelet using turquoise beads and pearls

Glam up your Wrist with an Easy DIY Bracelet

With Eid coming up I thought what better gift than to create a DIY bracelet. It’s thoughtful and customized for the person you’re making it for. I had most of the supplies from previous projects but wanted some coloured beads for contrast. I came across some beautiful turquoise beads at a local craft market. When creating a bracelet or any jewellery piece I’m usually inspired by what I see in shops or online. I recently […]

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 […]
