What an incredible week! From discovering new eateries (the Pie Comission), to going to concerts (Catfish and The Bottlemen), attending house parties and catching up with friends, this was an eventful week. We are in the month of May but it seems like Toronto missed the memo. It has not been the best weather with cold and rainy temperatures. And sometimes it creates a mood of laziness that is physically draining.
But with friends coming back from vacation and finishing school, I have been out of the house for most of the week. Saturday was reserved for a long awaited date night catching up with a friend over sushi (yum!). I love this flowy red-lace top from Dynamite that I paired with simple black leggings from Garage, and my black booties by Clarks.
On our date night, we got talking about our summer memories and how much we’re READY for beach days again. And you know for most girls who like shopping for shoes or beauty, I LOVE shopping for swimwear (I own like 7 swimsuits). And especially now when there are so many styles to choose from!
Adore Me is a great place to begin as they have extensive collections that have an array of sizes for every body type. I personally love the Dallys two piece swimsuit- its so flattering and sexy! Another favourite is this fiery red bikini!

Do you remember what you wanted to be as a kid?
When I was younger I had several ideas of what I wanted to become. The ideas started from wanting to become an author, to fashion designer, chef, to entrepreneur. My reality today is that I work as a social media strategist and radio tracker.
I read something the other day that made me think of my childhood aspirations.
“How do you want to be remembered ?”
This is a powerful statement, and I use it to develop strategies in my work as well as my personal life. Defining how you want to be remembered is the first step to moving forward, obtain goals and happiness. It can be applied to many situations; How do you want to be remembered when you die? How do you want your peers to remember you? Your friends? Yourself ?
After some thought I came to this conclusion, I want to be remember for my honesty, my independence, my strength, my work and my loyal relationships with others. Step two would be to reflect on this. For all the things I want to be remembered for, they should reflect what I am currently doing. Are you doing things in your life that reflect how you want to be remembered?
This is definitely a process but reflection helps us get back on track!

“I love you. Don’t you mind, don’t you mind.” – The 1975
The countdown is on, and The 1975 will be playing at the Air Canada Centre in the next week. Following The Killers and The Kooks, the 1975 have been my new favourite band. I am so excited to listen to them live.
Saturday was a day out. Started the morning off by seeing a movie at 9:30 am. Yes – I did wake up early for something, on a weekend. It was free movies at Cineplex on Oct 22nd for community day so I thought… why not? A friend and I saw a film, then we decided to go to our favourite area in the city.The Kesington market is one of our favourite places to get a slice of pizza and just walk around check out the shops and meet interesting people. We later visited the black market, which is a thrift shop on Queen Street West where everything is $10. We spent the day eating pizza, buying new fall pieces and watching movies. It was surely a satisfying Saturday!

Hello everyone !
September is the month of “happenings”. There is The TIFF, where celebrities from all over are staying in the city of Toronto. And with the cooler breeze coming out, everyone’s grabbing their bomber and leather jackets.
Fall is my favourite style season. The colour palette of dark greens, burgundies and purples look amazing on every piece at every store! I can’t resist statement jackets and tailored jeans.
It has been a fun month so far exploring new parts of Toronto and my good friend has moved back to the city, and we have been planning to visit places like the AGO and the Ripleys Aquarium.
So I challenge you to explore your city and see what adventures come up!
