January Photobook

- Enjoying Maui with my love 
- Delicious French Onion soup (I made a version of this recipe)
- Butternut Squash Pasta (a perfect sweet and spicy combination)
- The infinity pool at our hotel
- Wearing summer whites and stripes 
- Poolside cocktails
- Long walks
- Snowboarding with the lovely Danielle of Denj

January is typically not one of my favorite months. The Holidays come to an end and we are left with a cold, long winter to look forward to (or dread). However, this January was much more enjoyable than usual. I enjoyed some fun in the sun and sand, as well as the snow, and made many delicious comfort food dishes to get me through the cold! Now hurry up spring!!!

Bon Voyage!

Hello lovelies! I'm off to Maui for the next two weeks for some much needed sunshine! Here are a few shots of my packing process. I try my best to pack actual outfits rather than random pieces that I like. I find it makes my vacation much less stressful when I'm not worrying about what to wear. ( I usually lay out all of my outfits on my bed to get a good idea of what I'm packing) I will be back soon with lots of photos to share with you! Have a wonderful two weeks!

Lemon Meringue

Lemon meringue pies are my absolute favorite dessert, however I find making an entire pie for just myself a little excessive. So when I found this recipe for mini pies I knew it was the perfect solution! Unfortunately I didn't have a chance to properly photograph the end result, so please excuse my Instagram shot! I should also mention that I used frozen Tenderflake pie crusts! (Shhhh)

Bedroom Moments

Sharing a space with another person can sometimes be a challenge, especially when it comes to decorating. I try my best to not overpower my boyfriend with girly things around the house, but sometimes I just need a little pink in my life! I decided that my side of the bed will be my own little corner of my pretty, feminine pieces. My favorite perfumes, jewelry and style books are all displayed on my antique dresser that I found on Craigslist! (I added some knobs from Anthropologie to give it a personal touch)

Sunshine and Free People

The Free People January catalogue has me dreaming of long summer days, beaches and colourful markets. I haven't seen the sun in almost two weeks in Vancouver, and after seeing these beautiful images, I'm longing for summer more than ever!

Arm Party

Images found here here here and here

Wrists stacked with watches, bangles and even friendship bracelets have been such a big trend over the past year, and I don't see it fading anytime soon! These layered up wrists are such a perfect way to show off your individual style and make any basic look feel chic. I'm obsessed!

Blouse: Wilfred by Aritzia | Jeans: JBrand | Faux Fur Scarf: Joe Fresh | Watch: Michael Kors | Booties: Joe Fresh 

This faux fur scarf is a new favorite accessory of mine, it was a great find at Joe Fresh that didn't hurt my wallet too much! I find that with some trendy pieces it's best to not spend too much if you're not sure how long you will love it.
