The Ultimate Boot Essentials

I've made it pretty clear over the past few weeks that fall and I are the very best of friends. Any excuse to hunker down with a big ol' mug of tea is aces in my book, let's be honest. And trailing high on my list of fall-appropriate behaviour? Cute boots of course! 1. Tory Burch Boot: ...

Without question, fall is my favourite season. Yes, summer has its obvious perks, but when it comes down to it there just isn't a thing that beats a flowy, cozy sweater on a crisp autumns day. They're one of life's simple pleasures, made infinitely sweeter when found for a total steal.   1. Linen Sweater (on sale!): ...

What’s In Gal Meets Glam’s Makeup Bag

I'm not sure how to say this without sounding like a total creep, so I'm just going to go ahead and creep away. Julia of Gal Meets Glam has the softest looking skin I ever did see. Not only that, but she's also a mastermind with that makeup brush of hers, doning a flawless complexion regularly. Truly. Go peek, I can wait! I've always longed to inquire about her daily routine, and have thus made it my mission to unleash her...

11 Fall Jackets Under $50

I have this weird compulsion in which I don't like to spend a ton of money on my clothes. Some may consider this cheap, but I prefer to consider it wise (and I'm sticking to that!) I tend to change my mind regularly on what I like to wear, and always purge my closet on a seasonal basis which makes it difficult to justify big ticket items. I splurge on the occasional timeless piece, and tighten my purse strings on virtually anything else. And when I find a deal? I'm like a kid in a candy store:...

An Elegant Updo in Seconds

If you've ever been a bridesmaid, you know you don't get to just show up looking pretty and then walk with your friends down an aisle. When you say yes to being a bridesmaid, you say yes to helping out with anything the bride may need on her big day. Often, that leaves us with little or no time to get ready. We usually have big plans for blowing our hair out, curling it and doing a final touch up. But in reality, you look down at your watch, realize you have to be photo-ready in under an hour...

Best Dressed Blogger: Molly of A Piece of Toast

I've been lucky enough to get to know the sisters behind the fabulous blog A Piece of Toast over the course of the last few years  and, throughout that time, I've come to realize that these girls are as sweet as they are stylish.

Best Dressed Blogger: Girlcrush

Sarah and I actually attended the same high school and the same university for a brief moment in time. We both knew of each other but never really formed a friendship for whatever reason. Fast forward to eight years later, Sarah now lives on the west coast, me on the east, and we somehow stumbled upon each other via the wonderful world of blogging. With a few back and forth email exchanges, we become fast friends and the rest, as...

Essential Fall Fashion

So I tried to chat with mother nature on everyone's behalf, but unfortunately there isn't much we can do about the weather slowly transitioning from summer to fall. And since it seems we have to accept the inevitable, we might as well dress the part, am I right? So here are a few of my personal favourite fall essentials. And after spending some time on my virtual shopping list, I'm kind of feeling better...

How to Tie a Bow Tie (or ‘Tie Him Up’) from Annie Dean

Tying a bow tie is one of those things that might not be an every day occurrence, but I can assure you that it will likely come in handy at some point in your life.

Hello loves. We hope that you're all taking some time to relax with friends, cook up something amazing and toast to a beautiful Summer.

Best Dressed Blogger: Barefoot Blonde

Some may say Jen Aniston. Others may go with Blake Lively or Jennifer Lawrence or Mila Kunitz. But my girl crush? Is decidedly Amber Fillerup of Barefoot Blonde. Aside from the fact that she is absurdly gorgeous with style for days, she also doesn't seem to take herself too seriously and allows fashion to be a wildly individual sport. Plus she's kind of a bad ass. And today she's sharing her fashion genius with us mere mortals in her...

If you're a Sex and the City or Girls fan, you may have heard the name Geminola in the past.
