Hello Loves!

You all know I have such a huge obsession with the 70’s, the free spirit, the political rebellion, the music, and oh my goodness the clothes. You are also well aware that I have a pretty extensive collection of flared pants that have been collected throughout the ages.

Feeding off of my addiction to all things flared (sleeves included), I am currently obsessed with a variation of this trend… the wide leg pant. Now it did take me a beat and a half to get onto this hype as I worried that instead of looking like a gorgeous 70’s free spirited model (which was my Pinterest inspo), I would end up looking like a bad duplicate of Avril Lavigne during her horrendous skater boy era.

But after scrolling through the pages of Instagram, I stumbled across my gorgeous talented friend @ave.camilla rocking a pair of stunning striped @nicholasthelabel wide leg beauties, I knew I had to try it out. Now due to this being a fashion experiment, I had to save my dollars and invest in a more affordable pair… who knew wide legged pants were so gosh darn expensive!! Must be all that extra material *insert eye roll*. I was able to get my hands on a pair from H&M, which to be honest were more expensive than I was willing to pay… but the exact pair I wanted, and boy were they worth the 60 of my hard earned dollars (note: they are now on sale for $30 and I am pissed). They are the exact colour and style I was looking for… they are high waisted perfection. They also look incredible with a pair of sneakers, that you all know I am obsessed with (scroll down to next blog post for proof), as well as looking hella fly with a gorgeous pair of heels.

Although, I am running out of wide leg appropriate weather (gosh darn you Canadian skies), I do plan to rock them as many times humanly possible. Heck they are so comfy I could totally wear them to bed.

Hello Loves!

My fall must have might not be all that surprising, I mean I have been living in the things pretty much all year. Haha! Guessed yet?… Sneakers, duh!

You have seen me rock sneakers all year long… with a cute dress in Miami, cooling a suit set in London, and even a bikini ensemble in Mexico. So it was inevitable that I would be rocking a pair of kicks with my cozy fall knits. I plan to wear sneakers until the snow makes it dangerous to do so.

Sneakers are my new bestfriend… sorry Amy! But they are so gosh darn comfy, which is perfect for my ‘on the go’ lifestyle… and by ‘on the go’ I totally mean when I forgot to buy milk and I need to run to the grocery store real quick. They are also incredibly fashionable if I do say so myself, I have been getting so many compliments on my outfits recently *insert shy face.

So I have devised a plan, a plan that will makes us all fashionable together. Here are my top kicks from Amazon.ca that I hope to see you all rocking come PSL season.

Hello Loves!

As I stand butt naked in my closet trying to find an outfit for today, I can NEVER find anything to wear, I am distracted by the overwhelming amount of plaid I own. I never really noticed before, but I must have a thing for plaid (I mean I am half Scottish). I have counted 4 plaid coats, 2 jackets, 1 top, 4 scarves, 1 pair of shorts, 7 shirts, and 5 pairs of pants all in varying colours.

I just love the versatility of plaid, it is so easy to look presentable when wearing plaid… sweatpants and sneaker combo, throw on a plaid coat and you immediately look chic, without trying too hard. I woke up like this! Haaayyy!

As plaid is now a ‘thing’, I am thrilled that my closet is already supplying me with the trending topic. Thank you closet. However there are so many options on the market, from high end to low end everyone is crazy about plaid!

I have rounded up just a couple of my fav plaids…

Hello Loves!

You all know (you should) that this past June I visited Miami for the first time with my wifey Amy. We stayed at Loews Miami Beach hotel and I quickly fell in love with the brand (check out blog post here). You all also know (you should), that I returned to Miami and Loews Miami Beach hotel in Aug this time with the hubs!

Sameer had never been to Miami, and so we thought this was a perfect place to go for a quick Labour Day weekend away. I was so excited to introduce him to my Loews family, show him all my fav spots and discover new ones hand in hand.

We were again greeted by the most amazing staff, and taken up to a gorgeous king balcony suite, with the most beautiful view of the pool and beach. This time I was determined not only to take advantage of the hotel and it’s MANY facilities, which we totally did…

  • We sunbathed in the Soak cabanas
  • Watched the sunset from our balcony
  • Went on a quick kayaking trip
  • Enjoyed delicious eats and treats at Miami Jo Coffee Co.

But I also wanted to explore and enjoy the neighborhood.

Loews Miami Beach is situated exactly where you want to be. You are walking distance from…

Lincoln Road

A never ending road of shopping, dining and entertainment. Home to stores such as Anthropologie, Forever 21, Zara, and incredible dining experiences from the likes of Havana 1957, Juvia, and Shake Shack.

Espanola Way

This place is so fun! Take a quick trip to Spain on this street. Enjoy delicious eats, live music and people watching galore. There are even people walking around snakes wrapped round them… it’s a pretty exciting place.

South Beach boardwalk

Grab a bike, go for a jog or walk hand in hand along the gorgeous boardwalk of South Beach. With picturesque views on the sand and sun, this is a lovely place to go for a romantic stroll.

Also, we found out that the tour bus to explore the rest of Miami stops right next to Loews, which was super duper convenient.

I didn’t think it was possible to fall more in love with Loews Miami Beach, but boy did I ever. It’s affordable, clean, perfectly located and gorgeous. A must stay for all walks of life.

Book your stay at Loews Miami Beach here.

Hello Loves!

I am not a coffee girl… AT ALL! I know massive blogger faux pas, but before you all start a witch hunt, I have a great excuse… I am actually allergic. So you can put down the pitch forks… it’s something to do with caffeine, when ingested it’s like a McGregor vs Mayweather fight… but way more aggressive!

But please don’t rule me out of your coffee dates yet, I’ve found a new way to enjoy the bean. I found a whole line of caffeine infused beauty products while looking at Amazon.ca fall beauty trends, Frank Body. Ok, well maybe I can’t use these in a cute little cafe, but we could totally have a pamper and coffee sesh at my place!

Frank Body is an all natural, cruelty free brand that gives great results. With all my trips this summer and now heading into fall, my skin is well… dry AF! I purchased the original Frank Body coffee scrub for some rough exfoliation, the body balm for some buttery moisturizing and the coconut body balm for all over body moisturizing… you can even use it in your hair!

But you might be wondering, why the whole coffee thing?…

1. Why not, jump on that trending train

2. Coffee increases circulation

3. Brightens skin

4. My fav… minimizes cellulite

So far I have seen great results, on my legs in particular… they are smoother, softer and have a glow about them. I must say I am now a proud ‘basic bitch’…. omg I so need coffee right now.
