Layering Up

Hey Babes! With -20 temps here in Toronto, we’re packing on the layers to keep warm. My tips and tricks to layering are to wear semi fitted pieces, like a collared shirt and a sweater on top. Pairing it with a looser fitting topper will do the trick to help hide imperfections, and to create a slimming silhouette. And let’s not forget the accessories, like stylish gloves, a cute hat, statement necklace & a bright pop of colour on the lips! For now, I will be continuing to daydream of bikini’s, beaches and sun! ~Love CTina XO Leopard Topper & Polka Dot Sweater – c/o Ann Taylor // Pants – c/o Parasuco // Shirt – H&M // Booties – c/o Nine West // Necklace – Topshop…

Navy Zebra

Hey Babes! There is nothing better than when seasons start to change! We’re in the process of seeing Spring 2014 making way onto the racks of the most fabulous stores around.  One of my favourites has to be Ann Taylor! I have been waiting for this navy zebra print topper for over a month now, and when it landed in stores I couldn’t resist but to snatch it up, along with the matching blouse! Although the polar vortex is still amongst us, I couldn’t help but wear this topper to the Interior Design Show last Thursday, where I was snapped by Fashion Magazine and again over the weekend for brunch with friends! ~Love CTina XO Blouse & Topper – c/o Ann Taylor // Booties –…

House & Home: Bedroom Ideas

Hey Babes! Continuing on my decor quest for my new home, see the foyer ideas here, I’ve now moved on to bedroom ideas! I love having the bedroom as a sanctuary for relaxation! Pillow layers, fluffy duvet covers and seating is a must for me! Let’s not forget mirrors, artwork and of course fabulous lighting.  I adore boutique hotel looking beds and crisp white linens. There is nothing better than laying in pure utter bliss after a hard day at work! ~Love CTina XO *All pictures are from Pinterest

Spotted Coat

Hey Babes! Happy Monday! Last week I decided to chop my semi long locks again! I don’t know what has come over me, but just last year I was petrified to cut my hair more than half an inch, but now anytime my hair gets to a weird  length, I must chop it off. These photos were taken just before I decided to chop my hair off, and looking back at the length of my ponytail, I could say I slightly regret the cut, but then I see how easy it is to style my new locks and I realize I made the right choice! Stay tuned later this week to see the new length! ~Love CTina XO Jacket – H&M {old, similar} // Tshirt…
