fall in love with fall layers







Its not a surprise that I am a Fall type of girl. The crisp air, pumpkin spice lattes, and of course the art of layering. Layering is done primarily to keep you warm. Remember those days when your mother would put you in so many layers that you couldn't even bend your limbs, and you probably looked a lot like the Pillsburry Doughboy. Well as an adult we don't ever want to go back there, so here are my key ways of layering to always keep you looking great.

1. Don't pack away your summer dress yet- transition silk dress into your Fall wardrobe and the base of an outfit, the light fabric keeps the look from being bulky when adding on the additional layers.

2. Invest in a couple of neutral coloured sweaters- treat the sweater like the canvas by choosing a simple colour (like nudes and grays), it makes it much simpler to add to the canvas. 

3. Scarfs are always a good idea- they can keep you warm without over heating you like a jacket, and it adds a cool touch to the outfit by introducing a print or pop of colour. 

4. Use a belt to give you a waist- sometimes no matter what you do you may look bulky so use a thin belt and tie it around your waist to give you a shape.

5. Never forget to play with accessories- by adding a bold leather bracelet and a cool pair of sunglasses it keeps the look from being boring, as well as adding in texture and colour into the outfit.

A Day in the Country with Cadillac








This past weekend the amazing people at Cadillac gave me a car to test drive, so I took the opportunity to take it up to Langdon Hall (one of my favorite country side spas and restaurant). The beautiful Cadillac SRX was sleek and classy with all of the modern driving functions desired. I especially loved the luxurious interior and the massive sun roof. Not to mention 4 built in USB ports situated in different compartments of the car to make it easy to charge all of your devices at once. I really enjoyed driving the SRX as it was a great first time cross over car for someone like me who is use to driving small cars her whole life.

Another Decade













Another year, and this year its not just one year older but a decade. Now as I am in my 30's I am liberated. I no longer have to worry about all of those little faults that I was scare of in my 20's. I can now look forward to find a whole new set of rules to be scared of (lol!) but at least I have 2 decades under my belt to help me over come the fears. So 30's coooommmmmeeeee ooonnnnnn down...I am ready for you!

A special thanks to everyone who made it so easy to look forward with such grace and ease! You know who you guys are and I love you all very much!!!

letting go of summer



Since the wedding it has been non stop; so I do apologize for the non-frequent posts. But its September now (my favorite months of the year) and things are not about to slow down. With my 30th birthday around the corner jitters are flying all around me. 



But nothing makes me happier than presents...these beautiful bracelets recently was sent to me as an early birthday gift from Alex and Ani and I couldn't be happier. I love charm bracelets as they help celebrate special moments in your life, or provide a meaningful moment. The ones I received were very meaningful to this point of my life; the first one was the "Tree of Life" - symbolizing hope, conservation and growth. And the second charm bracelet was the "Lucky Clover" - symbolizing luck, fortune and prosperity. Both charms symbolizes everything that I strive for in life right now! So whats your moment?
