You’re Invited! Join an exclusive Globe and Mail celebration! #gmggoeslive

“You’re Invited! Join an exclusive Globe and Mail celebration!”….. That was the title of the email I received two weeks ago. Of course I was really excited to go! The event was held at the Fermenting Cellar in the distillery district. After looking at two maps, asking someone for directions and then joining two girls who also couldn’t find it, we finally arrived! As soon as I got there I realized I had passed by it three times! And I had parked right in front of it. I guess it was just one of those nights. Air head kind of night. It was really awesome of Globe and Mail to invite some of us bloggers/influencers to this celebration. It was full of opportunities to snapchat, vine, IG and tweet! It was hard to find anyone I knew because the venue was pretty big, so the inner Dora in me started…

Friday Faves: Essentials

What does your morning look like? Do you have essentials that you grab everyday or do they change based on your daily to do’s? It’s Friday and here are my essentials https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v8fNlsDq1z4 Fave Perfume: I’m going to get real with you. I have way too many perfume favourites. I base my daily fave on the mood I’m in, where I’m going and what I’m wearing. So since today is an errand running kinda day, I’m wearing one of my fave freshest perfumes. Acqua di gioia by Giorgio Armani. I keep this roller ball version in my tote bag in case I need to freshen up throughout the day.

Fave Read: You never know where you’ll be standing/sitting, waiting in line for whatever it is, bored out of your mind.…

DIY – Tie Dye Pillowcase

When it starts getting gloomy outside and I’m stuck indoors, I get an itch to start a new project. A simple DIY does the trick. Have you ever tried tie dyeing anything? I was going through the spring issue of Style Advisor and noticed this page of tie dye cushions that inspired me to do my own! What you need: 1 pillowcase 1 Rit® Dye colour 1 cup of salt if your pillowcase is made with cotton Rubber bands Hot Water Bucket Scissors Directions: Gather the center of the pillowcase in your hand and wrap a rubber band around it. Continue wrapping rubber bands all around the pillow case by twisting different sections and tying tight with rubber bands. Fill your bucket with 2-3 gallons of hot water and put in the cup of salt. Stir. Now put in 1/2 the bottle of dye. Make sure you wear plastic…

Friday Faves : Travel

Travelling to new places and learning about the culture and history of different destinations is something my husband and I love to do. Some trips are planned well in advance and some last minute. Our last big trip was to South Korea and Japan. We also had booked a trip to China this week for two weeks that we cancelled due to the wonderful new addition to our family. Now we look forward to taking him with us on all of our trips. The first one being to a resort in Mexico this May. When planning a trip, where do you look for information, inspiration or general tips? Reading and collecting the lonely planet books has become a tradition. However, a lot of the unique suggestions and tips come from articles. Articles like the ones I read in the Global Style Advisor that released today. If you haven’t already, I’d…
