LAKE COMO & HOTEL METROPOLE SUISSE

Saturday, December 3, 2016



I'm finally wrapping up the last of our trip to Italy.  From Bellagio, we took a 45 minute hydrofoil boat ride to the small town of Lake Como.   We stayed at a the boutique-style Hotel Metropole Suisse, and the location was perfect as it was directly across the street from the hydrofoil dock--and when you're lugging far too many suitcases, you want to be close.

We checked in, dropped our bags and took in the view.  We had a gorgeous lake view, and the mountains were just stunning.  Such a picturesque spot to stay, and I was excited to get out and explore.

Happy Cyber Monday!  Hope you had a great (long) weekend--did you do some damage on Black Friday?  The sales are so good this year, and lots of sales ended last night, but many continued and there are even more today!

THE BEST BLACK FRIDAY SALES

Friday, November 25, 2016


OFF SHOULDER TOP  |  NAIL POLISH  |  LIP COLOUR "CRUELLA"


Happy Black Friday--how was your turkey day?  In Canada ours is in October, so the coma has since worn off but I could definitely handle round two in November.  Hope you spent a great evening with family and friends, if possible.

Black Friday is easily one of my favourite shopping days of the year--and everyone else--and like in years past, I've rounded up some of my favourite deals + my picks so you can get your shop on after the jump.  The off shoulder top I'm wearing above is also on sale (and I'm wearing a large for size reference),

TGIF & happy shopping!

FRINGE X FRINGE

Thursday, November 24, 2016


O U T F I T  D E T A I L S  :  H&M SCARF (SIMILAR, SIMILAR)  |  FREE PEOPLE TOP (SIMILAR)  |  DISTRESSED DENIM (BUDGET FRIENDLY)  |  DOLCE VITA BOOTS (SIMILAR, SIMILAR, SPLURGE)  |  H&M FRINGE BAG (SIMILAR)

Happy Thanksgiving!  Hope you have a festive day planned with loved ones and are going to be getting your turkey fix!  #jealousCanadian 

Today's look is an easy jeans and tee combo but the textures and accessories add interest.  I love throwing scarves on top of outfits, especially these days since we're getting pretty chilly in these parts.  Not only does it add warmth, it adds interest.  Although my scarf has several colours going on, keeping the rest of the look neutral is key to pulling it all together.

The fringe and various textures adds interest to this otherwise pretty easy look.  I love mixing various shades of grey with my denim--such an simple way to look pulled together (even if you aren't!).
