Crochet

Crochet…when I would hear this word I honestly think something out of my Avo’s {i.e. grandma} closet BUT crochet has become one of this seasons hottest trends to wear.  We’ve seen crochet rock the runways of Miu Miu, McQueen & Moschino, and it is totally boho chic, but also very sexy to wear.   I was happy when Toronto Designer, OTH Crochet Nook made this dream crop top for me.  This top is a core piece when packing for a tropical destination, since it’s made from tshirt material it can be worn to the beach and for an evening out, so double wammy! If you’re not comfortable wearing a crochet top or dress, try opting for a skirt or a piece of clothing with a crochet…

Wedding Planning 101

So over the past few months many of you have been messaging and asking me when is the big day? And the answer is…drumroll please…we haven’t set a date!  There is not a huge rush plus we want to make sure that both of us are on the same page with all the ideas and planning. The most stressful thing about diving in and booking venues and photographers and hair & make up is that as a couple you have no idea where to start! So here is my Wedding Planning 101 advise. While most of you opt to hire a wedding planner, I’ve decided to take on and do most of the planning on my own.  You’re all probably sitting there laughing, but the…

The Perfect Off the Shoulder Striped Dress

Babes, there’s nothing better then an easy date night outfit.  When Tiago and I have a date night out, it is always so last minute that I literally have NO time to get ready. It’s always a mad dash to the closet to find something to wear, then paint on my face and off we go.  It’s like he does it on purpose just so every time I go out after that I can brag how I only take 5 minutes to get ready … LOL.  So in times like that I always need to have that perfect cute dress so I know exactly what to wear!  This striped off the shoulder dress is perfect for any occasion and pairs so well with any type…

Embroidered

TGIF guys! It seems every weekend Tiago and I have been swamped with activities and decorating our new pad, that when I read June 1 on my phone I almost cried! HOW DID 6 MONTHS GO BY ALREADY? Let’s reflect a tad… We got engaged, we finally moved into our new home, I then had a rare streak of bad luck with injuries and food poisoning and then voila we’re here! I can say that 2017 is a little better than 2016. The only thing I am slightly sad about is my blogging habits have gotten so bad it’s not even funny these days! Yesterday I had another styling sesh at Mapleview Mall, and it was such a success! While there I had to do a…

Silver Stripes

Happy Monday loves! I wanted to say thank you for all of you who took the time to message me about my last post.  It means the world and I am so grateful that I was able to help inspire other women that scars are beautiful. About 2 weeks prior to me moving & dislocating my shoulder, I picked up this pair of very unique denim from H&M. I think what drew me to them was the silver stripes on either side.  Yes, they can make your hips look a little wider than normal, but they are just tres chic and there was no way I was going to pass these up.  Denim this season is all about embellishments. Whether it be painted on denim, embroidery or something as…
