blush-coat-trendSometimes you don’t know how much you love something until it’s gone, and having left Canada less than a year ago, I realized how much I missed snow and colder climates. Just as most of you probably love to escape to a place hot and sunny with incredible food and sites, I’ve come to crave for a bit of a cold bite this season.  This month marks our 3rd year of Christmas together for Tom and I, so we were down for a short trip to San Diego.

dresses-2No matter what ethnicity you are, and no matter what city or country you’re in, welcoming the new year with a bang is something we all know and celebrate, and I just loved this quote when I read it.

The Pearl Bomber Jacket

I love the classics and while I was looking for a soft white blouse, I came across this beautiful detailed one. Continue Reading…

With Christmas just around the corner, I’m starting to prep the house for a short visit from my sister, niece and family friend. It boggles my mind how the year has come and gone so fast. I’m getting ready to put a few gifts under the tree this coming week. When it comes to gifting between my hubby and I, we often opt for surprise trips, but let’s be honest here –  the majority of us just don’t have the financial means to get everyone a trip, but there’s always something a good traveller needs, so I put together a gift guide for the wanderlust.
