Self Love Chronicles | Maple Latte's & Natalie Portman

Self loves comes in many different forms. 

I am very excited to film and share Self Love Chronicles on my YouTube channel! I will be posting every Thursday. 

For me, on a dreary and snowy Monday morning I decided to give myself a treat. My favourite actress was covering a fashion magazine (Natalie Portman on Porter Magazine for Spring '18) and it is maple season (my favourite) so I treated myself to a delicious maple latte from Second Cup Canada.

Prince Edward Island is my home away from home. 

It actually feels more like home than where I currently live! It is bright and cheery, and filled with delights at every corner. 

I recently discovered a little cafe and restaurant called "Leonhard's". The interior had mystical little details at every glance. There was angel wings and dried roses hanging from the ceiling... it was really a fun little spot to enjoy some multigrain waffles and a vanilla latte!

Whenever I wear blue jeans, I always sing that Lana Del Rey song in my head. You know the one I mean. 

I am absolutely in LOVE with this denim jacket. It was my Mom's from the 90's and I vividly remember her wearing it when I was a child. I was on the fence about this H&M shirt. It turns out that I just needed to size down for it to fit me better. I usually wear a size 10/12 at H&M depending on the fit of course. For this shirt I was a size 6 or a size 8. So you're best to size down one or two sizes. I still have an oversized feel to the look which is great! 





I have been really into styling my hair and neck with vintage scarves like Parisian women have been doing for decades. This scarf went really well with my blue look, and made my hair look undone, yet chic. 

Do you style with scarves?

The Brunette Shake

When I started this blog, I came up with "The Brunette Shake" because I am Brunette and like to shake things up. My blog space has been a work in progress - and now is almost complete! I have sent over 800 of my old posts dated from 2009-2015 to the "drafts" for a fresh start. 



When I saw Noelle Downing and Rachel Martino wearing these Brunette/Blonde sweaters from Zara I knew I had to have one. 

It's definitely a statement piece. I received a size Medium, and could have had a Small or Extra Small. It is very oversized, but comfortable. It's great for those days when you don't know what to wear, but it's chilly out. 

It was a windy day, but these tulips made me the happiest. Spring is almost here!

 What's your favourite season?

I consistently burn my tongue on food. Today, it was pizza. The pizza was so delicious that it was WORTH IT. 


I know this coat is so bright it can be seen from space - but I felt like sunshine/a chicken/tweety bird/big bird and I kind of loved it. I also was saying in my head all day “sunshine daisies, butter mellow, turn this stupid fat rat yellow” - if you know what book/movie that is from we should be best friends.

Milkshakes & Pink Stripes

I would travel far and wide for a delicious strawberry milkshake. Thankfully, I only had to go 10 minutes down the street from my house!

With my two youngest siblings in tow, we ordered three retro style strawberry, vanilla and chocolate milkshakes to share.

The jukebox was playing, photos of vintage cars and Marilyn/James Dean/Elvis on every surface - I was in heaven.

I have always been inspired by the 50's and 60's so this diner was right up my alley.

Unique and abstract photography is one of my favourite things. I love to frame black and white photos and display them in different coloured frames all around my home. I am inspired by nature, fashion and happiness. By happiness, I mean photos filled with laughter and love. 

I enjoy making use of my photos by creating unique invitations and cards, or crafting with decoupage. Licking a stamp, and popping a card into the mailbox is one of my favourite things to do. 

I have always been a fan of mail that makes people happy. A fun card, a beautifully written anecdote.. I know that when they receive the card it makes them smile. 

People are always connected. Connected to their laptops, tablets and smart phones. This makes it easy to contact via text message - but why not email a sweet card? It's quick, easy and you have so many colourful options for every occasion or celebration. This is also an environmentally friendly way to send cards/invites/save the dates to your loved ones!   

Paperless Post has the most gorgeous options from a variety of designers. Kate Spade, Oscar de la Renta, Sugar Paper and Mr. Boddington's Studio... You can send Thank You cards, Wedding Invitations, Cocktail Party invites - and so much more. I have at least 50 cards "saved" for a rainy day, to send for my upcoming 30th birthday, my future baby shower. Basically, if you can imagine it you can find it on Paperless Post.

Check out some of my favourite cards below from my collaboration with Paperless Post

My love for Paris and all things Parisian have no bounds. I am a woman in love with the idea of a life in Paris, filled with Parisian delights. 

I was able to find a sliver of Paris at Tony's Bistro and Patisserie in Moncton, NB! Only a short 11 minute drive from my house, where I was able to drink the most delicious latte, and share the most scrumptious desserts with my favourite little sister.  I think this just might be my new favourite place!
