Summer Breeze

This August long weekend snuck up on me and was left wide open with no set plans. Work has been crazy busy and this past week left me feeling exhausted and more excited than ever for 3 days off. By 2pm…

Chic In The Streets

It still shocks me that July is already over but I am happily ready to welcome August with open arms. My to-do list keeps getting longer with all kinds of loose ends to tie up before we head overseas.

Damsel In Denim

After spending a 4-day weekend in Montreal, I am happy that our unexpected visit had served it’s purpose. It’s comforting to know that A and I helped lighten the mood and bring a breath of fresh air to his family.

Jet Setting: Montreal Bound

This week was about as dismal as it can get. Bad news was coming in from all directions, mostly relating to the health of our loved ones. I’m expecting that these bad weeks will turn into good ones soon. Tonight, we…

Seeing Spots

As we move into the second half of July – signaling the half-way mark of Summer – I’ve been having a serious case of ‘summertime sadness’. Although I feel like I’ve done a good job living up to my Summer agenda,…

Back To The Basics

If there’s one thing I don’t miss about my student life, it’s how often I resorted to sweatpants, leggings and hoodies. What can I say, comfort was key and it was easy to stay under the radar without being seen.

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…

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…

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…
