Foggy Days


If you're living in Toronto, you'll know that we've had some serious fog. Although, fog may be a little creepy to some people, to me it is beautiful and mysterious. While I was unable to quite capture the beauty of the fog with my dinky camera, I got a few pictures in and spend the entire day cooking.

I'm wearing:
H&M Faux-Fur Collar
Grey Cashmere Sweater from Club Monaco
Wool shorts with suspenders from Club Monaco (my 'winter' shorts)
Black Opaque Tights from
Bloch Patent Leather Flats from Locale Sherway

I had purchased a Tart pan and a Madeleines pan the other day from Williams Sonoma and I couldn't wait to test them out. I first heard of Madeleines on the movie the Transporter and had purchased them before but I couldn't be bothered to buy the pan to avoid clutter. But, since I can't find any Madeleines for sale anymore, I must make them myself. 

I found the recipe on Joy of Baking and it is super easy! I also made a Goat Cheese, Tomato and Arugula Tart which was also super easy! I just baked up a standard pastry crust, added arugula, tomatoes and goat cheese and presto!

A make-up post is coming up soon, as promised, so check back soon!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....


Christmas is by far my most favourite holiday! I love it not because of all the gifts but because you get to spend time with your most loved ones and it is the only thing I look forward to during the long and cold winter season. With that said, I'm almost done my Christmas shopping! This was completely unintentional as I didn't go shopping with buying Christmas gifts in mind... it just kinda happened. Random shopping trips led to finding the perfect items for my family and friends. PLUS, Holt Renfrew was having a promotion so I couldn't resist. You got 25% back on a gift card on anything you spent and 15% on cosmetics.

I was running low on my YSL foundation so I decided to pop in and boy did I get some goodies :)

I kind of ended up with a lot of gifts for myself (whoops!) but that's what Christmas shopping is for! I picked up my YSL foundation which is silky smooth, has SPF and looks like I'm wearing nothing. I also picked up a limited edition face highlighter which is the best thing in THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD! It was so good that I went back and picked up two more (as they are limited edition). It just wakes up your face without being overtly sparkly and I got compliments on my skin and makeup all day long. I also finally picked up the Shu Eumura Eyelash curler in a little kit but enough ranting, I will have a makeup post coming up soon. 

The best gift that I found were these little Truffles in the most adorable packaging. I'm not sure who the lucky recipients are going to be, but they were so cute I couldn't resist. They are great stocking stuffers and the best part is that they were very inexpensive. If I got one of these I would certainly feel very special!

I will be back very soon to share with you some of my cooking and a makeup post will follow that.

Have a great week :)

Beautiful Fall Days


I just love Fall. All the beautiful colours and the fact that it's not too cold just yet. I especially love walking around in the Fall and just taking in the scenery. This is what I did last week after I enjoyed a wonderful breakfast at Creme de la Creme with my sister.

As I mentioned before, my sister accidentally dropped my phone in a pond :( but I managed to fish it out. While it's still not working, I managed to retrieve the pictures that she took of me :) (Mini photographer in the making)

So here they are... ENJOY!

I'm wearing:
Black Cashmere V-Neck from Femme
Club Monaco Skirt
Black Tights from
Browns Black Riding Boots

Have a great week and Happy Monday :) 

P. S. I have a Christmas post coming up... that's right CHRISTMAS!

I went up to Waterloo this weekend to celebrate Halloween and I thought I'd share my costume with you guys. It was kind of a last minute costume but I dressed up as Minnie Mouse :). I love dressing up for Halloween and getting ready with my girlies... it's super fun! So here is my costume :)

I hope that you as well as I, have a great week!

Find me on Tumblr!


Sorry I've been MIA, again! I was in the middle of midterms and it has been one of the worst weeks in a very long time, but you know what they say, "when it rains, it POURS". Anyways, I went out for brunch the other day with my sister and stopped off at my favourite park to take some pics and my sister accidentally dropped my phone in a pond :(. I managed to fish it out and hopefully it will dry and I can show you the pictures. In the meantime, I made a Tumblr account! I am in love with Tumblr as it is a great way to share pics and it's super easy to reblog pictures from other users, which is great! 

CLICK HERE! to check out my Tumblr account! And I'll be working on some posts for this week so check back soon!
