Fall Capsule: White Silk Cami + Statement Skirt

22.10.14


Sometimes, you just feel like being a little extra fancy. Know what I mean? This skirt is all over that. It's one of those pieces in my wardrobe that instantly puts me in a better mood. Best part? It looks equally good with just a simple grey tee for a more dressed down look. Iggy Azalea's Fancy is totally on repeat in my head right now. Ok, moving on.

DIY Penny Jug (inspired by Disney's UP!)

20.10.14


I have this adorably cute DIY project for you all today! If you're Canadian, you'll know that the penny was taken out of circulation about 2 years ago. Apparently, the average Canadian has about 600 pennies hoarded away, a fact I now believe it after this project. I had a cookie tin full of pennies that my grandfather had collected by stashing away loose change, and didn't quite know what to do with them. After watching UP! one day (my favourite movie of all time), I thought I'd recreate the change jug Carl and Ellie use in the movie to save up for their trip to Paradise Falls. Keep reading for the full, and incredibly easy, instructions!

Happy weekend! For my fellow Canucks, most of us probably had a short work-week due to the Thanksgiving holiday. The week really did fly by. Relaxing this weekend at the cottage, doing some baking and fire-building. Time has started to move very slowly for me at this point though as I can't wait to leave on vacation next Friday! Hopefully the week will pass by quickly though. I'm giving a presentation Tuesday, and leaving for a last minute business trip Wednesday. Home at midnight Thursday night just in time to catch my flight Friday morning. My travel skills are really going to be put to the test.

Here are some fun links to brighten your Sunday:

Loved reading this post about going without makeup for a week. I don't know if I could do it...

How to tuck, roll, and belt your way into fashion perfection! I'm a big fan of the half-tuck and the J. Crew sleeve roll.

Drunk J. Crew. Trust me, you'll thank me :)

This tutorial is fantastic for the lived-in berry lip trend.

Happy Hump Day!The best thing about a 4-day week is that Wednesday comes faster, which means Friday comes sooner, which means...weekend. And I'm on vacation as of next Friday, so I'm just counting down the days until I can get some much needed R&R!! As I get a couple of vacation-themed posts ready, here's a quick Beauty Bits for you today. Keep reading to see some recent beauty purchases and mini reviews.

The Weekend Edit Vol. 17

To my fellow Canadians, Happy Thanksgiving Weekend! This Thanksgiving, I'm celebrating my 3 year work anniversary. On that note, I'm thankful for having met all of the patients I've gotten to work with over the past 3 years. They've all helped shape me in their own unique way.

I'm spending my long weekend out in the country. Lots to do to get the place and my sailboat ready for winter, and I also have to finish off presentation and proposal for work. But the fact that there will be a perpetual fire roaring makes everything better. I may even take a nap (or two) in front of said fireplace.

I basically always want everything on the ONA website, but so far have only caved to the Roma. The release of their North Sound Clutch may make a dent in my wallet however.

It's no secret that I'm borderline OCD and these organization accessories are all amazing.

Joelle is back from her trip to Italy and I loved looking through all the outfits she came up with from only carry on luggage!

A great editorial read on the 2003 avalanche that shook up the BC back country.

And finally, because I couldn't resist, why Hocus Pocus is the most important part of October. Booooooooookkk!

On this extra gloomy, dark, and rainy day here in Montreal I am really feeling the colours in these photos I took last week. I am loving how bright these vines have gotten! Due to the inclement (read: atrocious) weather  I woke up to this morning, I am unfortunately not wearing this outfit today. But it will definitely be in heavy rotation for the rest of the season.

The Weekend Edit Vol. 16

Ah, the weekend! Maybe I'll actually get my ironing done this time. No, but seriously, it's been sitting  out for 2 weeks now and I just can't will myself to do it. My one goal today is to get that done. I'm absolutely awful when it comes to ironing, it's my least favourite chore. By miles.

That and doing the dishes. I generally leave a trail of dirty dishes behind whenever I bake or cook. Last night's dishes from making Lemon Posset (pictured above) are still waiting for me in the sink. I better get to 'em!

Here are some cool things I found on the internet this week:

ESPN did such a wonderful essay on Derek Jeter. It's the end of a baseball era and I'm sad

Buzzfeed is killing it with their new editorials. This one on the history of Madewell is fascinating!

I totally made this recipe from Gabby yesterday. They were delish!

Any True Detective fans here?? I'd totally love to see this become a reality.

And finally, the ABM girls did it again with a pumpkin spice white russian. Sadly, I currently have no Bailey's on my bar cart. So if I do venture outside at all today, it will be to pick some up.

Mother nature has been all over the place lately will the freaky (but very welcomed) warm weather last weekend, and then the sudden drop earlier this week. When mother nature doesn't know how to make up her mind, doesn't mean you don't have to either. Just layer instead! Keep reading for more photos and outfit details.
