Weekend Recap: iPhone Snaps

Tuesday, August 4, 2015

Hi ladies!  I'm so sorry I've been MIA for several days--the weekend got away from me since I was somewhat out of my usual routine as I was staying at my parent's place.  They went away for the weekend so I stayed there to watch our family dog, Peanut.  

Unfortunately, she is getting very old and we don't know how much longer she will be around--her quality of life has really take a turn for the worse over the past year, so it was great to spend some quality time with her over the weekend.

So with that, onto the snaps!



My new shoes came in (you saw the red pair) and I love the black even more.  

These definitely run true to size but are in half sizes.  I'm a size 10 and ordered the 8UK and it's a perfect fit.  The one qualm about these, and experienced with the other pair, is that they rub on the heel of my smaller foot as I walk and create a blister.  That said, sometimes certain shoes just need to be broken in, and I consider these like that.  I'm sure after several wears they will be good to go.  Ultimately, I'm super pleased with my purchased.



I stopped at the condo before heading to my parent's place for the long weekend, to pack and get changed into my gym clothes.

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
