Registry Essentials: The Perfect Kitchenaid Stand Mixer For Your Apartment (& homemade pasta!)

Monday 20 August 2018

kitchenaid stand mixer artisan mini 3.5 quart review

Registering for our wedding has been one of the most fun parts about wedding planning. Yes, I know weddings aren't all about the gifts, but there is something really fun about picking out a whole bunch of things to start your new life with, and thinking about all the ways you will get to use them. Sure, its just a serving tray, but that tray represents all the fun grown up dinner parties you will host. Yes, that's just a vase, but thats the vase that will sit on the table with all your new dishes when you host Christmas for the first time ever and it will be filled with flowers that your husband picked up for you.

Shoes for Spring | Hillcrest Mall

Monday 28 May 2018

Is it just me, or did it somehow go from third winter straight to summer? Either way, when the weather gets nicer one of the first things that I am excited to do is leave my boots behind. With my winter boots firmly in the back of the closet and my spring/fall boots with them, it is finally time to switch it up.

too faced peaches and cream collection

Too Faced is a champ when it comes to new launches-- but sometimes it can be hard to keep up with all the new goodies they are coming out with! Over the winter, Too Faced brightened our days with their new Sweet Peach collection. With a foundation, a primer, a spray, an eye shadow palette, blushes, bronzes, highlighters and more, narrowing down my favourites was no easy task! However, I wanted to share my top picks with you in hopes that it will help you find some products that you love!

New From Stila | Spring 2018

Wednesday 18 April 2018

stila spring 2018 collection review

New for Spring 2018, Stila has released a collection that has just about everything that this April is missing. This collection has a beautiful selection of pastel hues, opulent colours, textures, and sparkle. If I could describe the collection, I would say it looks like a spring garden. Sadly, Toronto is on 7th Winter with an awful ice storm, snow on the sidewalk, and a chill in the air. They say positive temperatures are on the way, and I hope they are right! With winter still in full force, I can't exactly say my look has switched over to "spring" yet. But this beautiful collection has me excited for better weather, and brighter looks.

Tips for your Canadian Wedding Registry

best places to register for wedding canada

Registering for our wedding has probably been one of the most fun parts about the wedding process so far. Going to the department store together to scan our way to wedded bliss was pretty great. Not only was it a fun date, but I can't remember the last time that Stuart and I went shopping for something other than groceries together. (actually, I remember some IKEA shopping, but that was more of a hard core attempt at survival rather than an enjoyable experience!).

My Experience Registering at The Bay

A few weeks ago my future husband and I went to register at The Bay. We opted to go to their flagship location on Queen Street right across from the Toronto Eaton's Centre. While we decided to take the subway (it was a quick trip for us!) I loved knowing that if we had chosen to drive that they are able to provide free parking on weekends.

Registering At Bed Bath & Beyond

Sunday 25 February 2018

what to register for at bed bath and beyond canada

Between wedding planning, and things getting a little crazy in my work life (which... if anybody knows what I do for work, they would know that you could probably write a Netflix series to rival House of Cards with everything that has been going on), blogging has had to take a bit of a back seat. I always, always tell my blogger friends that real life comes first. Well, in the last month, real life has been very real, and everything else has become #2. WITH THAT BEING SAID, Yesterday my fiancé and I made some time to stop by Bed Bath and Beyond to start* our registration process. It was really nice to have a bit of a date for the two of us to dream a bit about what our life is going to look like.
