IDS Toronto 2016

I had such a wonderful time at the IDS Toronto show this past Sunday.

The show was really something special this year. There is so much that is going on in the…

Andy Warhol Pop Up

I had such an awesome time at the Andy Warhol Pop Up in Toronto last week. This amazing collection of screen print art was so cool to see in person and learn more about the background of The Factory, each piece and Warhol himself. I am suddenly fascinated with learning more about this unique character and the inspiration behind his work. The exhibit is in Toronto until December 2015 so do make it a point to come and visit if you’re able to! You…

Apéro with Lillet Blanc

How was everyone’s weekend?! Mine was super busy but productive and after a few months of being insanely on-the-go, I finally got some work done around the new(ish) condo. I felt extremely proud of all my weekend accomplishments that I decided to host a couple friends over yesterday for a little apéro to break in my little patio nook! A popular custom in the south of France, an apéro is more than a drink; it’s a healing ritual like kicking off…

I had the absolute joy of visiting Target‘s Fall Media Preview last week and my oh my did it inspire me to get back to decorating!

Last Little Look.

  There are pros and cons to this bloggy life. I mean there are really just pros but I’ve been struck with a bit of a dilemma lately. I have been fortunate enough to receive oodles of clothes to review and style for the site, but it’s left me with a terrible overflow in my closet. I have limited space to begin with and this is proving to be quite the challenge. Luckily, whenever I face these issues I turn…
