24 Hours in Ottawa : A Weekender’s Guide

Historical and quaint, Ottawa is Canada’s capital city. Space-wise, it’s not big (most people call it a town) but it is made up of lots of small neighbourhoods. A weekend is enough time to get a taste of Ottawa. My Easter weekend trip was just that – jam-packed, full of food and experiences. So here’s a 24-hour guide to help you plan your trip to Ottawa.

Things to do in Leslieville

I love Toronto and everything it has to offer. Moving from Pakistan about three years ago was challenging but living downtown has allowed me to never feel alone or bored. Every day and every area feels like a new adventure. This series will focus on 5 of my favourite features of a Toronto area. Today I’ll be covering the quaint and ever colourful Leslieville. It feels like a charming little town (very Stars Hollow-esque) where […]

Meaningful Connections Discussing Essentail Oils Workshop By Her People

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 […]

Shop Local Shop Canadian Uppdoo Designed And Handmade In Toronto

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 […]

Hijabi Summer Style Essentials

My Summer Style Essentials

Although summer began relatively late this year, I’m definitely feeling it now. This heat wave has encouraged me to keep my summer style minimal and classic. These are the pieces I’ve been reaching for: Everyday Earrings I’ve mentioned these geometric earrings on my Instagram a few times so they’re definitely worth a spot on this list. I’d never bought anything from Canadian designer Vintage Acorn prior to this purchase so, I very happy to find that […]
