Turning Shadow Into Light

Life moves in an endless cycle of shadow and light and back to shadow again. Learning to flow with these rhythms and take the good with the bad is so important, and I’m only just discovering how to really enjoy the highs while truly accepting the lows of life. Because let’s face it — life…

Five Ways to Up Your Wellness Game This Summer

This summer has been a super busy one for me. Between graduating, travelling, and beginning a new job at Weddingbells magazine, I’ve barely had any time to blog. I’ve also been focusing on getting some creative time in every day, eating healthy and working out, so my schedule is pretty packed! But when inspiration hits, you…

Ireland Part Four: Cobh, Kinsale and Dublin

Our Irish road trip has been an absolute whirlwind! From the luxurious Marlfield House Hotel to the uber cool, laid-back Clarence Hotel in Temple Bar, Dublin, and everything in between, we’ve really immersed ourselves in Ireland’s rich culture and history. Needless to say, I’ve fallen even more in love with Ireland since my last visit…

Ireland Part Three: Longueville House

After a short stay in Ardmore, we decided to head to Cork County and visit Longueville House, a gorgeous country estate near Mallow. As we drove up the long gravel drive, surrounded by sheep’s pastures, wide open fields and lush green trees, it became clear that this was the quintessential Irish country house–the perfect place…

Ireland Part Two: Ardmore

After our fabulous stay at Marlfield, we headed to Ardmore in County Waterford. We only stayed there for one night, but it was enough to catch a glimpse of the beautiful ocean views and charming, colourful cottages.  The Cliff House, a contemporary Relais & Chateau overlooking the harbour, was our home base, and while it…

Ireland Part One: Marlfield House

After a gruelling six and a half hour flight, (it really wasn’t that gruelling, I slept the entire way!) we’ve finally arrived in Ireland, and it would be an understatement to say that the journey was worth it. I’m visiting for ten days with my family, and our plan is to hit Dublin as well…

Feminine Floral Dress

There’s nothing I love more than a breezy, floral summer dress, and today’s Free People frock is no exception. The flowy chiffon, feminine cinched waist and gorgeous colours and pattern makes for the most darling warm weather outfit! I feel like this dress is the perfect outfit for my second day at Weddingbells mag. I…

Technicolour Summer

Today was a boiling hot one, so I decided to don the breeziest summer outfit I could find. Summer in Toronto really never gets old, especially seeing as it only comes around for a couple months a year! June, July and August are the only months I can get away with dressing like a California…

Graduation Party

Yesterday, my parents threw a big graduation celebration for my sister and me. I can’t believe I’m finally graduating from Ryerson journalism school tomorrow and that my sister is graduating from law school! These past four years have flown by and I’m so excited to begin a new chapter of life. We couldn’t have asked…

Fresh Summer Blues

After a long month of travelling around Europe, it feels unbelievably great to be back home. While I love going on adventures, I truly am a homebody at heart, and there’s nothing I enjoy more than cuddling up in bed with a good movie or hanging out in my backyard. Now that a month has…

Lisbon + The Algarve, Portugal

After almost one month of travelling, we’ve finally made it to our final destination of Portugal. It feels bittersweet to be wrapping up our trip in such a beautiful locale: on one hand, I’m super excited to get back to all the comforts of home, but on the other, the vacation of a lifetime is…

Two Days in Barcelona

With only two full days here, our stop in Barcelona has been the shortest of our trip so far, but I definitely feel like I’ve become at least a little bit acquainted with the art, architecture, food and culture of the city. During our visit, we checked out some of the surreal architectural works of…
