Floral Friday - Peonies

Floral Friday - Peonies
July 15, 2018
Read post
When I was late for work and Kyle was giving me a quick drive, we drove past the local park (that I hadn't seen in 2 weeks because I was away on vacation) and what did I see? 

Hundreds of peonies. 

Beautiful peonies in pink and white - it was such a sight! Naturally, I thought of the beautiful blooms all day. As soon as I went home I hopped on my cruiser bike with my wicker basket and took off to photograph the flowers. I also picked some of them too - they were too beautiful! I couldn't help myself. I was covered in ants by the end of it, but it was totally worth it. 

I always pictured myself getting married with either a bouquet of pink peonies with hydrangea or sunflowers. Flowers just warm my heart! 

What is your favourite flower?

I always wanted to go camping. To spend nights in a tent, and eat delicious food that was cooked over an open fire. 

I had the most miraculous first time camping at KOA campground in Cornwall, Prince Edward Island. Kyle chose the place and orchestrated the entire trip. Our camp site was right by the ocean and we woke up to sounds of the ocean waves crashing and birds singing. It was fantastic. 

I can picture myself quitting my day job, and living in a tent full time. I absolutely embraced the camper lifestyle.  Life is so simple! I did yoga in the grass, we went clam digging and mussel raking and could still see our tent, we had fires and ate delicious food... I just loved it. 

What is your favourite camping memory? This one is mine!

Top Instagrammable Spots in Moncton, NB

One thing that I struggle with is where to take Instagram photos. 

It's a hard-knock life for a small town Blogger to find pretty places for content without uprooting your entire life and moving to Italy, London, Paris or NYC. Which is also on my side burner, but we will keep that a secret. 

I currently reside in Moncton, New Brunswick and always fall back on 6 totally Instagrammable hot spots, that I have decided to share with all my East Coast babes for some inspiration! I will be sharing a few guides for local surrounding cities too! So keep your eyes open for future posts.

#1 : Festival Inspire Graffiti
There are graffiti spots all over town, with beautiful art installations for you to put on the 'gram. A few of my favourites are below! They are currently in the process of painting some more murals and I am so excited to see them! They should be done by July 19th.

My favourites:
Dieppe Public Library - Book Collection
Starving Artist Cafe - Turtle Installation
Wize Guys Moncton - Rainbow Rain

Here's the official map for the graffiti from 2018 :

#2 : Tony's Bistro and Patisserie, McLaughlin Road
This is a hot spot for delicious treats, eats and beverages. I usually go around 330-400PM for prime Instagram photos. Order some delicious Parisian inspired treats and get your friend to take your photo. Make sure to get an almond croissant to go, they're to die for! 

#3 : King's Ice Cream, Mountain Road
I love to go to this hot spot in the Spring/Summer months for a delicious cone and to take Instagram photos on their chairs shaped like ice cream cones. I'm not joking. I want to buy some for my new kitchen table, they're that cool. 

#4 : Downtown Strolls
When you stroll downtown you'll see a lot of beautiful sights. Colourful houses, beautiful gardens and old brick buildings. All are great backdrops to showcase your outfit! My favourite thing to do is try to match the houses or wear something that will make my outfit pop with the coloured homes behind me. You can also take a walk into Victoria Park in the Summer for a really beautiful spot with flowers and lovely trees. There's even a store that's completely pink outside on Main Street!

#5 : Nature Spots
I am inspired by nature and love to frolic in the woods and discover new hidden gems. A few of my favourite nature spots in the Moncton area are below!

Irishtown Nature Park
Centennial Park 
Hopewell Rocks

#6 : Magnetic Hill Wharf Village
The Magnetic Hill village had a major makeover this year and all the buildings have been freshly painted and look oh so lovely! There are several opportunities for different back drops, this place is going to be seen all over my Instagram feed this Summer for sure. Fingers crossed they still have the Beavertail restaurant!

Floral Fridays | Peonies & Lupins

Floral Fridays | Peonies & Lupins
June 22, 2018
Read post
One of my favourite things about Spring/Summer is the abundance of flowers that surround me. 

I have dedicated every Friday to post a photo of flowers on Instagram. It makes me insanely happy and nothing brings me as much joy as planting flowers and watching them grow, or arranging a gorgeous bouquet. 

Lupins are considered to be weeds and grow in ditches or on the side of the highway. They always bring me back to Summer days as a child visiting the East Coast of Canada, and now that I live on the East Coast of Canada I can enjoy the lovely lupins whenever I am on a drive with my Vespa or walking around. 

Peonies are one of my favourite flowers, they are very hard to find around where I live, but every year I manage to get my hands on some lovely pink blooms. My Mom has a gorgeous peony bush at her house, and I planted one at my old house too! 

Check out my lupin/peonies from this week! 

Happy floral Friday, babes!

I am the type of woman who loves to wear dresses. I have always loved dresses. It's difficult in the Winter months to wear dresses even if I have fleece tights to wear underneath. Canada has such freezing, arctic temperatures that I basically freeze while wearing a parka and snow pants, so you can imagine how it is when I wear tights and a dress. 

But alas -  June is here. Which means I have absolutely no excuse to not pull out my favourite dresses and finally shave my legs. Although, I did wake up to -2 degree weather this morning - but we won't focus on the negative. 

I was lusting after this TopShop striped dress and have seen it all over the 'gram for the past couple months. Yellow is super trendy right now, and yellow has been one of my favourite colours to wear since I can remember. I was a little bit anxious about the fit of this dress as I had to order it online. 

I shouldn't have worried. It fit like a dream. I ordered a 16UK just to be sure it wouldn't be too tight. I did have some weight gain over the past year due to PCOS (hormonal issues) and have been very sad about the fit of some of my Summer clothing. Perfect excuse to go shopping!

This dress is currently sold out, but if you live in Canada you can find it on the Hudson's Bay website for 95$!

One thing that makes me the absolute happiest is seeing flowers and trees in bloom in May/June. I discovered such beautiful trees in my neighbourhood and it really is wonderful when you are walking around or driving and are blown away by the bright colours of the blooms!

I am going to be sharing photos of flowers - either arrangements I have made or planted flowers all Summer long on my Instagram feed. Every Friday with be Floral Friday - so get excited for all things beautiful. 

A little known fact about me is that I used to work at a greenhouse. It was my most favourite job ever. I was the custom floral designer. I custom designed and planted flowers for customers and it gave me so much joy and creative freedom that I need in my life. 

Here are some photos of blossoms to lighten your Friday!

Over the years my bio has changed on all my social media platforms. My Etsy profile was the one who said who I wanted to be. 

"I've got dreams of macarons, tall buildings, a colourful pastel apartment with black and white photos on the walls and a closet full of pretty dresses. I'm in love with the fashion of the the mod 1960's, free-spirited 1970's, goth 1980's, grunge 1990's, and cyber-chic 2000s,

As If!

I was born in 1989 and was a complete 90's kid. I remember being obsessed with Clueless, Bring It On, Spice World and so many more films/shows.

The one movie/show that influenced me the most was Clueless. I had a huge book collection, and watched it religiously. That being said, I think Cher Horowitz played a large part in my style development from a young age. She had a closet and outfit organizer developed on her computer. Just.. everything about Cher Horowitz. 

When I saw this yellow plaid dress on Instagram I was instantly transported to the Clueless days and 5-7 business days later it arrived on my front step. I already had the pink fluffy pen from Indigo/Chapters and a mini backpack so I was already set to pay homage to my girl, Cher. 

I ordered the dress in a size large because it looked quite short/tight fitting. I am totally happy I ordered that size because it fit perfectly, and wasn't too revealing. I have a really long upper body so sometimes shopping for short dresses can be a struggle. 

Urban Outfitters no longer has the yellow version in stock, but the pink one is! 

If you're looking for some serious inspiration, look no further than The Coveteur. Click here : Cher's Closet for some serious throwbacks. 

11 Best Quotes from Clueless

Mel: “What the hell is that?”

Cher: “A dress.”

Mel: “Says who?”

Cher: He does dress better than I do, what would I bring to the relationship?

 Amber: Was I the only one listening? I thought it reeked.
Cher: No, I believe that’s your designer imposter perfume.

Cher: If it’s a concussion, you have to keep her conscious, okay? Ask her questions.
Elton: What’s seven times seven?
Cher: Stuff she knows!

Tai: Do you think she’s pretty?
Cher: No, she’s a full-on Monet.
Tai: What’s a monet?
Cher: It’s like a painting, see? From far away, it’s OK, but up close, it’s a big old mess.

Cher:  You see how picky I am about my shoes and they only go on my feet.

Love Your Mother Earth

Love Your Mother Earth

Earth Day is important.

But let's be real for a hot second - our Mother Earth is important every day.

We take advantage of the resources, and natural wonders of our world. Not only are we affecting the climate, we are affecting the animal kingdom as a whole.

Our impact on the planet is catastrophic. Climate change IS real. The time is now to start trying to save the planet.

There are small things you can do each and every day to lessen your footprint :

  1. Walk to work or take public transportation as often as you can. I started walking to work everyday, and I love it!
  2. Have meat-free days or try being a vegetarian (the meat industry impacts the planet more than you think!)
  3. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle - I remember talking garbage cans in elementary school taught me the importance of RRR - implement into your day to day life!
  4. Go waste free. It's hard. But you can do it! It can be as simple as not using plastic bags for your product and taking reusable grocery bags to the market
  5. Reject all straws. That's right. STRAWS. They may be small but they add up. Imagine how many people in front of you in line are getting beverages with straws? All that plastic waste ends up somewhere. I will link some reusable straws below. 

There are many things you can do to create a difference. It just takes a moment of asking yourself "is this good for the environment?". Remember - being GREEN is sexy. 

Green is Sexy Shopping List : 

These photos were taken in Moncton, New Brunswick. The turtle behind me was made entirely of plastic waste (approximately one TON) and was designed to bring awareness to environmental awareness and the local endangered wood turtle. Go visit this art installation and take some selfies! It's located on Assumption Blvd., behind the Starving Artist Cafe.
