The bustier is back with a lacy twist and their one-piece dresses are now equipped with a stringy fringe. Have a looksie at more! Read more

Stepping into Spring

FINALLY – it feels like spring has bloomed. After what seems like the longest winter of life, I couldn’t be more excited to bring out the trench, pastels and a midi skirt. Oh, the midi skirt. What I went through to get my hands on this one.

It first came out around a month ago and was only available at three H&M locations – Yorkdale, Eaton Centre and Bloor Street West in Yorkville. After what seemed like a long scavenger hunt to find this beauty, all hope seemed to be lost until a coworker mentioned she found it in Boston.

I kept this in mind on a recent trip to Miami, and it seemed like it was meant to be. One day when we were driving around in a cab on our way to dinner, I looked up and saw the two letters H&M beaming at me. I glanced at the window and saw the skirt peeking through a rack. Later that night, I had a dream nightmare that I left Miami without the skirt. I finally got a chance to go back to the store on the last day of our trip, and have never felt such satisfaction until I walked out of the store with this gorgeous skirt in my hands.

Needless to say, I’m absolutely obsessed and can’t wait to style it with more outfits this spring.

Last weekend, KJ and I attended the 3rd Annual Memory Ball in support of Alzheimer’s Toronto at Andrew Richards Designs. Tickets were sold out months in advance, and with the amazing venue and crowd, it was no wonder why.

I got to check out Andrew Richards Designs with Gloria back in the summer while attending the Summer Speakeasy, and this place is just stunning. The vibe of the entire event was incredible and complete with gorgeous gowns, live music, cupcake towers and a photo booth.

DIY – Bare Your Knees

DIY Bare Your Knees

I’m lounging around in hopes that Mr. Winter will finally exit the building (so long piles of yellow snow!). While waiting, how about I whip out a quick DIY? This extra warmth will mean more skin exposure, soooo are you ready to flash some flesh? Let’s not get too rowdy too soon and take a page from the ’80s. Torn jeans were and are the shiz! Expose those easily forgotten knees because they can be super sexy in a bold way. All you need is a pair of pants and my guide to create this rocker chic look!

I’ve always been in complete awe of those who are capable of producing beautiful images. Whether it was candid, portraits, or just a random day to day snap to document your life, it’s been so incredibly important for me to learn how to perpetually improve at taking photos.

In came Canon, like a shining beacon of light into this little blogger’s life. I was lucky enough through 2013 to have the experience of being a Canon Ambassador for not only the PowerShot N, but a part of the #canonblogtography group (including other awesome bloggers like Casie, Andrew, Nelia). And here we are at the end, having completed six seminars of varying lessons (portraits, runway, personal 1×1). A few highlights from my lessons (and photos!) after the jump.

Thanks from the bottom of my techy little heart, Canon, for this opportunity to learn to translate what my eyes see to something real.
