Defining Moments

I always feel a sense of shopping victory when I throw together an outfit and realize that it’s comprised of pieces I’ve had for years. These shoes, in particular, used to be a hot commodity in my closet. I purchased them…

Denim & Cut-Outs

Last night, A booked us some last minute travel for the end of July. This time, we’re going on an unexpected trip to Montreal. With so much going on, we didn’t have a visit planned until at least Christmas. But sometimes unforeseen things…

Victoria, British Columbia

Victoria, British Columbia

A few weekends ago, I had an impromptu girls trip with my sister and best friend. We spent the weekend between Victoria and Vancouver and while I’ve been to Vancouver a handful of times – Victoria was a first for me.

July First

In my family, July 1st calls for a slightly different celebration. It’s the day where we have a memorial for the passing of my late grandma and celebrate the memories of her life. I always look forward to this day…

Sunday Brunch

Sunday brunch has become one of our favourite things to do. Last weekend, A wanted to surprise me with a new place so, he took me to Monki Breakfastclub & Bistro. Despite having to wait over an hour, we absolutely loved their steak and…

Spotted In Green

This week, I got the good news of being accepted into the CPA (Chartered Professional Accounting) program. It took a few months of serious contemplation around whether or not I wanted to sacrifice the next 2 years being in school while working full-time…

Summer 2014 Bucket List

As we welcomed the first days of Summer this weekend, I was inspired to think about all the things I want to accomplish and my ambitions for adventure this season. Usually, I waste no time drafting an extensive bucket list of to-dos…

Orange Dreamsicle

This past month has felt like an ironic combination of the longest month ever –  yet oddly enough,  it also seemed to pass me by so quickly. Everything leading up to our Haiti trip at the end of May and the weeks following…

Haiti

Photo Journal: Take Two In Haiti

As our 3rd annual trip to Haiti is fast approaching again in May, I thought it would be fun to share a photo journal recapping some memories from my second trip to Cap-Haitien at the end of August 2013.

Invermere, British Columbia

Invermere, British Columbia

For Easter long weekend, we decided to escape and venture off to Invermere, B.C. It’s a short and enjoyable 3 and a half hour drive. Yet, it felt like a world away – a far cry from the bustling city streets…

Chicago

Photo Journal: 24 Hours In Chicago

Chicago is one of those cities that I fell in love with even before I had ever been there. So when the chance came up to visit the Windy City – I took it without hesitation. It was one of…

Three Years

This week, A took me out for dinner at a lovely Italian Restaurant – Bonterra Trattoria – to celebrate 3 years together. For us, it was a monumental year – for both reaching big milestones in our relationship and personal accomplishments.

Oxblood & Faux Fur

Nowadays, it seems like the only thing A and I can daydream about is what life will be like when we move into our new home… at the end of 2015. Our condo development has broken ground but it’s still a longgg…

Winter Whites

Yes, it’s technically Spring, but to look outside here in Calgary, you’d never know it – hence, I can still get away with the name of this blog post. As the new season is starting, my blog will be coming out…

Electric Emerald

The past few weeks have been nothing short of crazy. Not to mention, the freezing cold that finally struck us – Annd Welcome Winter! As this is my first Winter blogging, I have yet to pinpoint a strategy for taking…

Leather Lust

Like many others, I am certainly in denial that Winter is here and in full force (quite a transformation on the streets from the pictures in this post and the last post). For as long as possible, I am delaying…

Black And Nude

These pictures certainly don’t reflect the current state in Calgary but a little more like the day right before our first snowfall of the year. As I mentioned in an earlier post, A has officially moved here and was more…

ACTLIKEUKN_W Fashion Show

Over the weekend, the girls and I were invited to attend the ACTLIKEUKN_W fashion show at HiFi Club. It was the after party for Stacey McKenzie’s Walk This Way workshop and was hosted by Calgary Fashion. It was a great chance for us…
