Indigo Holiday Preview 2014

Chapters is my go-to place for books, gifts and stationery. I must admit that I especially love shopping there during the holidays. Following last year's great event, this year's Indigo holiday preview, which took place at the gorgeous Rosewood suite at Hotel Georgia, was even more amazing. From great kitchen and glassware for entertaining to fun stationery and cozy winter accessories, there were a ton of unique gift ideas. I'm already making a list of must-haves to purchase for our new home come November 3rd! Be sure to check it out then!

Pink and Polished

Zara dress, Christian Louboutin pumps, Chanel bag, Kate Spade watch and bracelet

When it comes to hot summer days, I prefer dresses to the shorts and top combo. The last thing I want to do in this heat is think about which top goes with which bottom so dresses make getting ready so much easier! This pretty and pink little number was a score from the recent Zara sale (you know I can't resist this annual sale!) and it's been great for meetings and errands around town. These are the last few photos taken in our neighbourhood before we move. I'll miss it for sure but am also looking forward to scouting out new places for blog photos! See you soon, Toronto!

I am YORK event

A few weeks back, I had the chance to visit the beautiful MOSAIC show-home styled by Monica Hibbs at the I am YORK event. Monica recently re-branded her blog (formerly The Doctor's Closet) and has impeccable taste when it comes to design and decor. I fell in love with every corner of the townhome - from the bright and airy living room and the floral adorned dinning area to the great balcony with the DIY s'mores station. She did a great job making the place feel cozy yet spacious, and I love the feminine touch in the decor. The attractive price point of these MOSAIC homes even had me thinking about moving to the suburbs in the future!
