Unless you’ve been hibernating during the summer months, you’ve probably noticed the colour explosion that has hit the runway, interior decorating, food styling and summer fabrics. Bright hues are everywhere and it is about time! I kind of like these bold, in your face colours as they are reminiscent of the 80s! From bold corals to pastel palettes and neon flourishes, colour is HOT this summer!
My ideal camper looks like this one. If I could, I would sit outside this weekend with all my camping friends and enjoy the summer weather! A game of cards and some refreshing drinks? Does it get any better than this?

It’s only Wednesday and I had to catch up on so much at work – after being on vacation for a week! I feel burned out again.
Do you find work stressful? Do you balance work life and blogging, exercise and trying to make healthy meals – all during the summer? How do you cope?
Right now, my life looks like this…
Last week I didn’t post much because I decided to take a local vacation in my hometown Toronto – and surrounding areas.
First stop – a visit to my parents who live in scenic Bobcaygeon, Ontario
The opposite of Kensington Market is Yorkville. Toronto’s most celebrated neighbourhood of style and culture, it has the most exquisite boutiques and restaurants.
We had to try Yogurty’s the new self-serve froyo place in T.O.
We filled up our cups with flavoured yogurt and added as many toppings as possible! Delicious!
It finally feels like summer is here. Time to have fun in the sun!
take a whimsical tote like this one to the beach with you, summer meadows filled with wildflowers are my favourite, a perfect picnic on the beach, fresh lemonade is a great way to cool off on those hazy days, cycling in the early evening – what a fabulous way to end the day!
His name is Aaron De Simone and I started following him on Pinterest. Aaron has phenomenal taste and he curates everything – style, jewellery, cars, fashion, travel, recipes – you name it. I signed up for his weekly newsletter called I Heart Luxe – luxury curated and delivered every week. It’s über fab. I received my first newsletter this week and I am hooked! Genious.

I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.

We all know that money can’t buy happiness. It’s the little things that make life rich. A sunset or an unexpected visit from an old friend.
I’m going to start a series of posts called the rich life. In this day and age of digital overload, I think we should all step back and appreciate the small comforts, the serene moments and the love in our lives.
Meet Krystal. She lives in a tiny 400 square ft. apartment in San Francisco (a city I would love to visit by the way). Her studio has an attached kitchen and a large closet where she keeps all her fabulous outfits and shoes. Oh those shoes! I am so jealous of all her beautiful shoes.
Krystal describes her style as “eclectic chic”. I love the vignettes in her space. She manages to create displays while maintaing a clean, glamourous design aesthetic. In fact, on weekends, Krystal can be found scouring flea markets for vintage curios she artfully arranges in her home. Her biggest indulgence? Fresh flowers every week! What a great way to indulge!
I’m feeling blue today. It’s in a good way. Blue, a very popular colour can represent happiness and optimism as days with clearer, blue skies tend to be considered better times. It’s soothing and serene. Beautiful blue.

It’s January and I have the blahs, so, I’m going to dream that my suitcase is packed and I’m ready to embark on a voyage to Paris to rent a quaint apartment, visit the cafés, the Eiffel Tower and all the gorgeous shops! I’d drink wine, try all sorts of pastries and visit every fabulous place this famous city has to offer.
