fresh rose in nyc

What better way to kick off spring than with the sight and smell of fresh roses? Are you imagining the fragrance? Now multiple that by say, 300. Now, pretend you’re in a Greenwich Village loft. There’s rosé champagne flowing. Petals everywhere: covering the walls, strung from the ceiling, dotting the doors, lining the floors. You can imagine my delight when I received the opportunity to experience the new Fresh Rose collection first hand in New York City. I’ve been a longtime fan of all things Fresh – while not all of their products are completely natural, they have been using gentler formulas before it was popular to do so. Does anyone else swear by the Soy Cleanser? 24…

real simple magazine instagram takeover

Good morning, my beautiful friends! I’m excited to share I will be taking the reigns over on the @real_simple Instagram account today. Follow along as I take you on a tour of some of my favourite Parisian scenes and locations. And although I have moved back to Toronto from the city of light, I still muse about my time living in this beautiful country and all the beauty it has to offer. I know many of you are travelling across the pond this summer so I thought it would be fun to share some of my tips. As a side note . . . you should know I love working with brands and…

the happiest day ever!

Cue the confetti: our wedding photos are here! Actually, we’ve had them for a few weeks now but Andrew and I have been having the very best time poring over them with our family and friends, so I thought it would be best to wait before sharing them here. With that said, I’m going to break these out over a few posts so I can show you everything from our rehearsal dinner (a traditional Cape Cod clambake) to the décor + details. To start, the wedding day itself. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch – we are going…

a fun little interview + my fave new app, wantfolio

Hello darlings! As you may have seen over on Instagram, I’ve recently partnered with the very clever team over at Wantfolio who have just launched the new app (which you should absolutely snap up). It’s my new favourite way for capturing, organizing, and curating content I want to keep up with — it’s basically a publishing feed to keep up with my favourite blogs and news sites. Do you ever feel like there is so much good content out there, but no concise way to keep tabs on it? Wantfolio is a great hub for this. I’ve been saving away articles and images onto a few different boards: home, style, and adventure. You…

the ultimate summer picnic

. . . I’m certain that if there is one thing you know about me, it’s that I have a very strong affinity for picnics. Nothing says summer like fresh berries, a great bottle of wine, the best company, the smell of green grass, and the warmth of the sunshine. It’s an absolutely romantic experience. I’ve been chit-chatting with you about one picnic in particular: the #OPENpicnic, which is internet speak for a leisurely picnic hosted by the wonderful people at OPEN Wines. Unfortunately I won’t be present (Las Vegas is calling . . . ), but some of my favourite fellow bloggers will be (Alex of Larkspur Vintage, for one) will be…
