Wearable tech gold bangle by Wisewear

Function Meets Fashion with Wearable Tech

Technology is no longer something we hold onto or put in our purse or pocket — it’s something we wear on our body; it’s something that touches our skin. While most wearable tech focuses on the wrist (Fitbit and Apple Watch) and has a sporty look, there are numerous designs hitting the markets which encompass fashion with function. Sensors, conductive threads, 3D printing, and microcomputers promise to extend an object’s capabilities in ways we never imagined. If […]

Pablo necklace flatlay by Foxy Originals - a Canadian designer jewellery brand

Designer Jewellery Minus the Price Tag

I don’t know about you, but I’m always on the hunt for unique and affordable jewellery. Sure, there’s a huge selection at high street stores but they’re not locally made. I love supporting Canadian brands (especially female entrepreneurs) because they have a story to tell and their quality is far better than the former. I was introduced to Foxy Originals, a trendy designer jewellery brand, when I saw a few of their pieces at Indigo. Since […]

Leopard print faux fur fluffy Kate Spade bag on model

Leopard Leopard Leopard: Spotted at Kate Spade

This fall, it’s all about those fabulous feline prints. Kate Spade is on trend with their Leopard Leopard Leopard collection but they aren’t the first adopters of this print. Countless actresses and big designers over the years have made a fierce statement in feline fashion. More recently it’s been favoured by Kate Moss, Anna Wintour and Michelle Obama. Notice a trend? These are all strong women with strong points of view. The collection gains inspiration from […]

Cozy fall accessories including scarves and minimal everday jewelry

Must-have Fall Accessories if you’re on a Budget-ish

There’s no denying fall is officially here and with that comes fall accessories. Even towards the end of summer, Twitter is buzzing with fall trends and people are ecstatic to start wearing snuggly sweaters and drinking hot chocolate. I am no exception but soft scarves and trendy booties are more of my jam. First up are essential boots. We need to cover those feet up and keep them warm but still pretty looking. I picked […]

Jord wood watch frankie 35 beaded bracelet sandalwood

My First Impressions + Review of Jord Wood Watches

You guys know I’m crazy supportive of handmade products, so I thought I’d tell you about a wood watches company that I’ve fallen in love with. I stumbled upon Jord scrolling through Instagram one night and was instantly surprised by their modern aesthetic to an otherwise vintage style. I had first seen wood watches at the Trinity Bellwood’s Market but all the styles were too big and clunky for my small wrist thus I forgot all about […]

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 […]

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. […]
