Old Montreal

Exploring the street of Old Montreal in Zara from head-to-toe (minus the sneakers). P.s. I just got a pair of Nike Roshe and currently wondering why I didn't own a pair sooner. It was probably because my sister is constantly expressing her hatred for the "socks" on my feet but they're honestly the most comfortable shoes I own, sorry sis!

Les Rues de Montréal

The streets of Montreal are so picturesque, it made shooting outfits almost effortless. I still however, had to endure the awkwardness of passersby shooting judgemental looks and staring for a few too many seconds for comfort, I guess it comes with the job.

Hike to Dundas Peak

A few weeks ago, I embarked on the most exhilarating and petrifying hike of my life...and I would do it all over again. Now I don't mean to be melodramatic, the hike consisted of trails with safety meaures in place, so you would be completely safe... if you're a rational human who obeyed signs that read something along the lines of "do not enter," "this is not a trail," "turn back now if you have even an ounce of will to live." Something along those lines. We obviously weren't phased, which leads me to my near death experience I'm about to share with you.  
It was a warm Monday morning and my sisters and I headed to Hamilton to hike the trails leading up to Dundas peak (the highest point of the trail), for the cardio and more importantly, infamous "living on the edge" pic. We parked the car and headed up the trail. After roughly thirty minutes, we reached the Peak and snapped these gorgeous shots because, "pics or it didn't happen" right? The view was absolutely breath taking. We headed down the trail and made our way over to Webster Falls. The only issue with our plan was that there was in fact no trail, and for good reason we later discovered (the unconventional way). We scouted the grounds for a while searching for the illegitimate trail supposedly created by delinquents time after time, going off trail to discover the beauty of Webster Falls up close and personal. We wanted in. 

Living on the edge indeed.

Beach Days

Top + shorts from Forever 21

Beach days and a little vitamin D are necessary to cure the blues caused by exhaustions and overworking yourself, especially if you don't often get the chance to enjoy the warm weather. Make time for yourself and soak up the sun while you can...and just incase you haven't been taking advantage of this heat wave we've been experiencing in Toronto, I have one word for you...w i n t e r.

In the Vines

Discovering gorgeous spots on campus that I never noticed during the chaotic years as a university student rushing across campus from one lecture to another in under ten minutes, whilst trying not to break a sweat.

Spa Day at Elmwood Spa

Good afternoon everyone :)

Yesterday I was treated to a much needed spa day courtesy of Elmwood Spa. We were pampered with mani and pedis and I can honestly say that it was the best spa experience I've had to this day. Everyone was professional and sweet and the service was completely up to standard....and you know your girl doesn't settle for anything less than perfection.

The Asymmetrical Bardot Top

Adding a l̶i̶t̶t̶l̶e a lot of frill to my wardrobe this summer. Zara has been my go to for bardot and off-the-shoulder tops. They're simple yet chic and can so easily be dressed up or down with a trouser and heel combo, or alternatively, jeans and sneakers. How would you wear bardot tops?

Digital Dreams: Festival Photo Diary

(Outfit for Day 1)

This past weekend I attended my first festival ever, thanks to @BreezerCanada!! Thanks for sending me to Digital Dreams and for an unforgettable experience. Prior to the festival I had absolutely no clue what to expect. I have friends who have gone and while I was familiar with some of the artists, I clearly did not get the memo that this was a rave when I was frantically putting together cute outfits that were comfortable yet picturesque. For anyone who hasn't been to the this festival, Digital Dreams is much more of a rave scene than a festival (i.e. Coachella). Here are my looks for Day 1 and 2 and some random snaps from the festival.
