Winter White And Festive Feelings

Bloor Yorkville, Parajumpers hat, winter white, winter style, red and white, holiday style.
I am in full-blown holiday mode. The tree is up, the pine scented candles are lit and the lips have officially been painted red. This weekend B and I hit up the Bloor-Yorkville area to begin our holiday shopping. It so happened to coincide with the tree lighting ceremony that takes place in Yorkville. Unfortunately, the ceremony was cut short due to the intense rainfall but we made the best of it. I wore this Parajumpers hat what is probably the warmest hat on the planet and it kept me nice and dry all evening long. Some of our favourite places to hit up in Yorkville are Holt Renfrew, Anthropologie and Nespresso. I love browsing all the cosmetics, fragrances and accessories at Holts, then we always make a stop to stock up on our coffee capsules and enjoy an espresso while we stroll around the park. After dinner, we came home, put on the hockey game and enjoyed the evening. It was a lovely kick off to the holiday season and I can't wait for more days like this to come! Do the holidays make you all giddy and excited? Next time I swear we're watching Love Actually... 

Headed to Yorkville? Check out some of my favourite spots below!

The Best Stocking Stuffers

Okay. It's getting real now. We are less than a month away from Christmas and I need to get my butt in gear. Although I was super quick to decorate the house and get into the holiday spirit I have yet to start my Christmas shopping. This weekend I did not really take advantage of any Black Friday deals! I was kind of holding out until Cyber Monday. Now that it's here and I've started my list of gifts to buy I am ready to check back on these items and see what I can snag! Most of these items below are on major sale or include free shipping! Since I have tons of girly kris kringle gifts to buy I've rounded up my faves so you can shop too! Any faves? I wouldn't mind any of these wrapped up in my oversized pink faux fur stocking.

5 Tips To Be The Best Guest

How to Be the Best Guest- Homesense, Holiday Git Guide-- charades, karaoke mic, marble slate, flowers, hostess gifts

We’ve all read the how-to entertain guides... how to be the hostess with the mostess, what to serve at your holiday party and how to decorate. But where are all the guides on how to be the best guest? Sure there are some main etiquette rules we all should follow, i.e.: don’t show up late (the host puts so much effort into the evening and is expecting you at a certain time), offer to help as much as possible but stay out of the hosts way when they are on a mission, and bring something as a gesture of your gratitude. But this part can be tricky. What to bring that will show just how much you appreciate their efforts and what will set you apart from all the other guests! Today I’m breaking it down for you. Five simple ways to be the best guest and ensure you bring something appropriate, yet fun! Want to know my secret? I don’t even have to leave one store to make it all happen. I rely on HomeSense time and time again for the most interesting, different and just plain exciting hostess gifts, and at every price point.

Knited Neutral

Frank + Oak women's sweater, socks, Made For Good Living, Vintage Chanel, Socks & Pumps
Chunky knits and dainty jewels; two opposites that I've been loving as of late. I love how they create such a great balanced yet juxtaposed look when paired together. While in Montreal last week I re-discovered Frank + Oak. They recently opened two stand-alone women's stores (one in Montreal and one in Toronto), which is huge news! They offer some great, elevated basics that are perfect to dress up or down. Just like this chunky knit.

How to Combine Colours- Bisous Blouse

Lips blouse, red beret, blue lemon bag paris, leopard coat, zara shoes, pombons

Red, pink and mauve... can it be worn all together? I'm here to tell you that it can! Especially when you blouse is packed with kisses in every colour. Most of us are so reluctant to pair red and pink together (I used to be) but it actually makes such a striking colour combination. It's different, bold and just plain fun. And to think I could have stopped at the boundary-breaking colour pairing, by why would I? I threw on my favourite leopard top coat and my barret for an even more playful vibe. Sometimes we get stuck in colour ruts and end up with a closet full of the same colour. Here are some tips to break the colour pairing boundaries:

Holiday Beauty Sets for Every Girl

Holiday 2017 Gift Guide - Make up & Skincare Sets-- Benefit, Smashbox, NARS, Biotherm, NYX, CLEAN, Pixi

Beauty brands have been amplifying their approach to the holidays this year and I could not be more excited. I love Holiday sets because most brands really think about what us, the customers, want; they group together fan favourites, their most loved products, tie them up in a pretty bow and offer them at a great value which usually means you are saving loads. Since we are fastly approaching the gift giving season I wanted to break down the hottest sets and the ones that are going to give you the best value. Whether your style is elegant, natural, glam, or glowing there is seriously a set for every girl.

Secrets For Gorgeous, Full, Lively Hair

4 secrets to gorgeous, full hair- AVEDA texture tonic, LOVEFRESH organic shampoo, AVEDA Abundance Shampoo, Vital Proteins Beauty Boost Capsules

There’s a reason why I don’t share many care hair posts on my blog, especially sponsored posts at that. Companies usually want you to test out the products and within a weeks time detail your findings. Well for me that just isn’t enough time. Sure the first use is always amazing! You’re thinking holy moly this is the greatest shizz on the planet. But you never have enough time to actually see the long-term results... is it overall drying to my scalp? Will it cause my psoriasis to flare up? So unless I truly love something, I don't bother.

Seeing Red

Red for Fall- LOFT red sweater, Zara white leather mini skirt, Zara leather booties , Target faux fur purse, Celine sunglasses
This is groundbreaking news, but I am obsessed with red this fall. I have never, I repeat, never loved the colour red. I was always way to intimidated as a child to wear it because of my hair colour! Isn't that crazy?! It's powerful, sophisticated, bold, bright and basically, screams "stop"! We're not talking muted burgundy, or oxblood, we're going full fledge power red. It is most definitetly the colour of fall and I can't seem to get enough.

So how can you incorporate this power colour into the season and make it your own? Easy!
