Friday Finds ... on a Thursday

A sweet feature one of my blogger friend's did on her fave Canadian blogs.

The easiest (and chicest) sangria recipe.

These memes made me LOL.

This post encouraged me to finally bite the bullet and purchase the open-storage basket I was coveting (how cute are #9 & 11 though?).

Reminds me of high school.

I'm doing a photoshoot with Place d'Orleans next week!  Here's what happened last time...

Twitter for beginners.

Chic nail art.

No-bake vegan banana cream pie--yum.

A pretty piece for Fall (not ready!).

Instagram Outfits for Summer Evenings & Work

Wednesday, July 29, 2015


DRAPE-FRONT BLAZER  |  TANK (LOVE THIS ONE)  |  DIY DENIM SHORTS - FROM THRIFTED MEN'S PANTS  - OLD (SIMILAR)  |  IRO HEELS

I'm back for another post about various Instagram, Facebook & Snapchat (I'm acoest1984) outfits.  I love sharing these because it's a great look at what I wear on a daily basis as I can't always do the full-on photoshoot.  This time it's a mixture of work-wear and evenings out.  We've had some up and down weather this Summer so I've still been wearing a ton of pants or will cover up on top and bare my legs for evening (my fave).

Weekend Recap: iPhone Snaps

Monday, July 27, 2015


JOSHUA PERETS ZIP-UP - OLD (LOVE THIS & THIS)  |  TANK  |  ARDENE SHORTS - OLD (SIMILAR, SIMILAR, SPLURGE)  | PUMA SNEAKERS

On Friday night I was so happy we had no plans and the only thing on the agenda was to get food and catch up on our favourite shows (we are watching Suits & Ballers right now).

We ordered Indian for dinner and I decided to walk there and pick it up to get a little exercise in.

Wake-Boarding Vlog

Sunday, July 26, 2015



I'm so pumped for this video slash this day because I went wake-boarding for the first time and did it!  I had tried once before, maybe 10 years ago but couldn't get up, and today, on my first try, I got up.  Success!  I think all those weekends spent snowboarding during the winter and incorporating heavy weights into my workout routine has paid off.

So the jist of the day is that friends invited a bunch of us out on their boat for a day of wake-boarding and wake-surfing.  It was super hot, sunny and a perfect day to be on the water--what a treat!  We all took turns and alternated between the two sports.  

I didn't try wake-surfing (ultimately surfing behind the boat, without a rope and no bindings holding you to the board!) but might give it a shot next time.  For now, I'm pretty stoked I managed the board and even took a couple mini jumps, by accident of course, but still landed them.

Thanks for watching! xo

Friday Finds

Friday, July 24, 2015


Happy Friday ladies!  The weekend is finally here and we are planning on having wine & cheese with friends tomorrow night, and I'm going to film a video on make-up strobing--I'm obsessed with this new trend, especially for Summer!
 
I wanted to start a new tradition for Fridays where I share some fun links from around the web that I'm enjoying.  I know plenty of people do this, but sometimes it's fun to discover things through someone else, right?  I'm down, hope you are too, so let's jump in...

Officially obsessed with this home-d├ęcor blog a friend turned me onto this week (have you seen the entry way revamp?!).

Just purchased these in two colours.

Been using this eye cream nightly for over a month and love it.

Loving the look of jute rugs and have my eye on this one for our living room.

An interesting article on making a living via blogging.

Loving everything about this.

Hellooo tasty Summer dessert.

You ladies know I love my hi-tops & these are my newest gym shoe.

Flared overalls?  Yes.

Covetting this dress hard for a wedding this September (but not sure it's long enough for me; I'm 5'11).

A pretty mobile.

My newest YouTube channel obsession.
