Summer Must Have – High Waisted Denim Shorts

Bench high waisted pale blue denim shorts

Home is Toronto. That’s for sure – no matter how far away we roam we’re always drawn back to the place we call home. Since my childhood I’ve had the pleasure of calling different parts of Toronto home. From west to east, downtown to uptown, (and eventually north of the city) it was really nice to experience the different ambiances generated by the uniqueness of each neighbourhood. With that being said, shooting these shorts for Bench and their tagline #LoveMyHood running through my head, these photos had to be shot in a place that at some point claimed that hashtag for me.

Vichy Idéalia Product Review

smooth fine lines to maintain youthful and radiant skin

During the last few years I’ve noticed a gradual change in my skin. As someone who has combination skin, keeping oiliness at bay and adding minimal moisturization was my skincare ritual for years. However, over the last few years one of the biggest changes I’ve experienced is just how dry my skin has become outside of my T-zone. And more recently I noticed some new fine lines much to my dismay. In retrospect, there was a time when I took my youthful skin for granted and as a result am paying more attention to taking better care of it now.

I was offered Vichy’s Idéalia range to try. Vichy really put some thought into Idealia by exploring the influence of a fast-paced lifestyle and how stress, fatigue, and lack of sleep impact our skin quality. Ummm…guilty as charged. The Idéalia line is an antioxidant complex made up of blueberry extract, fermented black tea extract and Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water (no parabens) to provide visible results in 8 days. The line boasts to even complexion, refine pores and most importantly smooth lines. Excited to try this one? You betcha! Continue reading “Vichy Idéalia Product Review”

I haven’t owned a pair of pink pants since I was in college. And to be honest, I was all set to pass on the trend this time around. But then I saw that my beloved Free People had a pair. Their pink paper bag pant has such an adorable cinched high waist, and the colour is rather pretty. Upon a quick mental scan of my spring summer capsule I realized that all of my pants are blue jeans and figured a pair of pink paper bag pants would be a fun and addition.

Four Fun and Flirty Summer Looks

Fun and flirty summer looks

I had the pleasure of shooting four spring/summer outfits with Lemonberry, a NYC inspired clothing boutique located in Aurora, Ontario (about 30 mins north of Toronto). With all the cuteness overload going on in their store, it was a little difficult to narrow it down to just four looks, but I eventually managed to style the outfits. The four looks have somewhat of a subtle romantic bohemian style to them and contain basic summer staples, which will transition beautifully day to night. I hope you enjoy these fun and flirty summer looks I put together. Continue reading “Four Fun and Flirty Summer Looks”
