Finally Got My Hands on a Proenza Schouler Bag

And there it was, just hanging and waiting for me on the rack. And by “it” I am referring to my recently acquired Proenza Schouler PSII mini. For years, and I mean years, I have been drooling over Proenza bags and  dreaming of owning one. They are not something one buys every day as they cost quite a few pretty pennies. Celebrities, fashion bloggers, and those in the fashion scene oft ... >

Pour Some Raw Sugar On Me

Clever name for this post, right?  And a fun name for an awesome cafe in Ottawa!  However you won’t find Bon Jovi there. I have lived in Ottawa for a few years now, but it has been of late (say the past year or so), that I have really started to venture out into the Ottawa unknown. I have driven past Raw Sugar Cafe many, many times, but never had the chance to stop by.  I deliberately mad ... >

Clean Eating – No More Crap!!

Well I can’t promise that I will never not eat crappy food again, but I certainly am committing to myself to keep it to a minimum.  So I had a bit of a scare when I went home a few weeks ago. For the past little  while, I was having weird skin rashes and inconsistent bowel movements (yes this is the truth without being graphic). I had arranged with my mom to make a doctor’s appointme ... >

Impromptu Visit to Montreal

Life is always fun when you are spontaneous here and there.  Last Friday night, my friend Alex and I hit the road to Montreal. As the title suggests, it was somewhat impromptu, but not really. I have a lot of Type A tendencies. A couple of days prior to Friday, we had decided we would go to Montreal.  However I allowed myself to be spontaneous with the restaurant that we ended up eating at. Afte ... >

And then that special moment when they walk in the door and SURPRISE! Well last weekend, we had a funny incident occur. The lucky recipient surprised the guests! I was the main coordinator and missed the key cue for when the Birthday Girl walked in the door ... >

Say Yes to Overalls

Overalls are not just for the tradesmen/women or farmers. They have evolved overtime to become a classic, easy to wear staple fashion piece. Classic full length overall. Shorteralls or Overalls. Whatever your preference, they are a great addition to any wardrobe. A couple of Sundays ago, with a little encouragement and stamp of approval from my roommate, she assured me that I looked awesome in my ... >

What’s Your Pick?

If there is a local farmer’s market near you, it is certainly worth a gander to. I keep driving past the one closest to me everyday on my way to work, and I made the conscious decision and effort to check it out today. And I am glad I sure did! Farmer’s markets  range in size. The one I went to, the Parkdale Market in Westboro, was on the smaller side, but it was busting in size with ... >

San Francisco Will Steal Your Heart

There are so many words that can be used to describe San Francisco. Where should I start? Beautiful, friendly, picturesque, hilly, amazing…..the list goes on. Imagine a climate that doesn’t fluctuate too often. A steady 15-20 degrees year round. None of this winter and snow silliness. You could wear skirts, dresses and light jackets year round. The one draw back of the city and area is ... >
