Went to the Boiler House for their famous Sunday Brunch yesterday. The food was meh (selection at Hot House is way better), but the ambiance was pretty awesome! Lots of exposed brick, flowers, sunshine, and jazzy sounds flowing all around. What a fantastic way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
I got these ridiculous-looking shoes at H&M a few weeks ago. They are green, purple, yellow…They are ridiculous and I love them! A while ago I wanted to buy 2 pairs of shoes, same type, different colors and wear them mixed/matched (ie. blue on one foot, pink on the other). I never could justify buying 2 pairs of the same shoes, even if they were different colors, thus I never brought this idea to life. With my new ridiculous H&M shoes, however, I think I’ll be able to achieve the same look without shelling out for 2 pairs.
And even though the collage of what I’m planning to wear in Paris doesn’t really show the actual shoes, the ones below capture the idea pretty well…alas not as ridiculously.
If you love Clinique and freebies as much as I do, then head on over to your closest Clinique counter at The Bay! From May 21st to May 27th, get one of the Clinique consultants to assess your makeup bag to see whether you are a Makeup Fan or Fanatic and either way, you’ll be walking away with a free mini bag and a lipgloss/mascara combo to stash in your bag. All you need to do is show up, get a free consultation, buy any Clinique product (no minimum purchase necessary) and get your freebies! Easy, breesy, beautiful!

Going to Europe for the third time in a row! This time my itinerary includes London, Paris, Krakow, Zakopane, and Almaty! It’s coming up so soon and I am way too excited! And for a shopoholic such as myself, one of the most exciting things about going away is…packing and deciding what to bring!
This year’s trip will definitely be a test of my packing skills. Thing is…I am going for 3 weeks, and all I am allowed to bring is a carry-on size luggage (20 kg) and a large shoulder bag. Some (Al and Mar) would say that it’s an impossible task, others (myself) would call it a challenge! I’ve been able to make ends meet with such a modest luggage allowance for the past 2 years, but that was only for 2 week-long trips…not 3! One extra week of clothes might break this proverbial camel’s back. Let’s see, shall we?
So this WIW (What I’m Wearing) features items that I am planning to bring to Krakow, Poland. I’ve never been to Poland, but for some reason, I keep thinking florals, wavy/braidy/hippy hair and red lips. Thus, the set below, which features all of the above. I wonder how the old cobblestone streets of Krakow would feel under these naughty YSL cage shoes?
Items featured in this set
Dress: Forever 21
Bag: Miu Miu
Make up: Clinique
My boyfriend and I recently took a Segway tour of San Francisco and we both looooved it! It’s amazing how easy it is to zip around town on one, not to mention environmentally friendly (they are electric). Well, imagine my delight today, when I found out that…Chanel just launched a Segway-like transporter of their own! Even including a Chanel bag at the front of the gadget, instead of the unsightly and plain backpack!
I can totally imagine myself riding one around Toronto! Ahhh, Chanel…somehow they always know just what I like!

Diane Kruger is currently in Cannes, promoting the new Quentin Tarantino movie “Inglorious basterds”. I love, love, love Diane! Usually adore her fashion choices, alas not this time. The Chanel outfit that she wore to amfAR’s Cinema against AIDS benefit is neither inspired, nor flattering. While the Marchesa dress that she wore to the screening of the film, is flattering, but not spectacular (I think it’s the pattern that I dislike…looks like a cheap curtain, non?). I am trying so hard to like it, but her fashion choices leave me cold this time.
Joshua Jackson, however, was looking very handsome and dapper; so hot that Diane couldn’t keep her hands to herself! Diane’s fashion savvy has definitely rubbed off on her boyfriend, as lately Joshua has been looking more Bond than Pacey. Oh, Diane, look at the magic that you did with your man! What’s with the boring outfits???

It was cold in Ottawa last weekend. Definitely not cold enough to wear a duvet! She obviously didn’t think so.
Question: would you rather be caught wearing a Disney (Little Mermaid, Rescue Rangers, etc, pick one) duvet, or have straw instead of hair? Hmmm…
