24 Hours in Ottawa - Parliament Hill Ottawa Canada

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. Where to Stay For the last three years, I’ve […]

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 […]

The7TO Toronto's Newest Instagram Spot - Disco Balloon

The7TO – Toronto’s Newest Instagrammable Spot

In my personal opinion, this winter has been horrible – two major snowstorms, a whole lot of ice and barely any sunshine. If you’re craving happiness (or just something fun to do in the city), check out the newest insta-worthy spot in downtown Toronto – The7TO. Seven unique photo-op spaces take over the 7th floor of the Hudson’s Bay – Queen Street. Best part – it’s completely free! These immersive spaces or “rooms” can certainly step […]

Toronto Ramadan Market Photobooth

Handmade with Love at the Toronto Ramadan Market

I was stoked to be chosen as one of the official bloggers for the Toronto Ramadan Market, created and curated by none other than girl boss Sudduf. This opportunity allowed me to cover the event on social media via a live takeover of Ramadan Market’s Instagram account. Although I was exhausted afterward, I got the chance to speak to amazing designers and makers who were all willing to share their stories on and off camera. […]

Erdem x H&M: Pieces that are Bound to Sell Out

Every year, with much anticipation, H&M collaborates with high fashion designers to create a limited edition collection sold at a fraction of the price. This year is no different with the Erdem x H&M collection with London Fashion Week favourite Erdem Moralioglu. You may recall the mayhem that ensued with the Balmain x H&M collection which sold out within minutes. This year I can expect the same, with people lining up the night before and […]

Laparelle leather clutch bag in yellow mustard at Inland 2017

Innovative Designers at the Inland Show

Every time I walk into this building I’m amazed by the architectural design and natural light that flows through. It’s the perfect place to hold a fashion design exhibition supporting designers who are made in Canada. Welcome to the fall Inland show. I’m a fan of anything shiny, which is why Chayle’s pieces caught my eye. What originally looked like jewellery made from foil was actually silver and gold hammered earrings and necklaces. Each piece […]
