USA, Japan, France, Italy & Germany, Oh My!

So let’s talk about the things that make me happy. Travel, obviously, is at the top of my list because the idea of exploring the world makes me feel more connected with it. Cooking, because it is something I’m quite good at and makes me feel grounded, even in the craziest of situations. Love, although let’s be honest, that’s a given by now as you all know. Our dog, because she’s one of the best parts of my life and one of the best decisions we have ever made. My family, because they support me as I work towards goals while reminding me of where I came from. And that’s just to name a few. I think sometimes it’s important to make a list of the things that make you happy because life is full of distractions, trials, and sometimes we can easily forget.  Continue reading “USA, Japan, France, Italy & Germany, Oh My!”

Holiday Contest | #IWantRudsak & so does the fashionista in your life

Shopping for the fashionista in my life can be difficult, especially with how much is available on the market nowadays! Additionally, fashionistas tend to be super picky about their choices in fashion, which can make buying for one even more difficult. I have considered gifting my fashionista friends with a product from fake designer websites; they look just like the real thing sometimes, and everyone loves a designer brand! However, at the moment chances are I end up in a RUDSAK store or online www.rudsak.com. From fur to leather, fashion to fun, this Canadian brand has a special place in my heart. Not to mention that Julio is usually coveting something from their latest collection! It’s why I’ve decided to pick up a few of my favourite items for him this year from RUDSAK (don’t tell him) and to share an exciting contest that they are running. Trust me when I say that #IWantRudsak and so does the fashion lover of any age in your life. Continue reading “Holiday Contest | #IWantRudsak & so does the fashionista in your life”

Food & Wine | #DISARONNOWearsCavalli, and Versace, and Moschino….

Okay. I’m actually a giant geek and most people don’t realize it. I like to collect things (within reason) and when I don’t have a complete set it bothers me a LOT. So, when I got my hands on this year’s much anticipated collaboration of DISARONNO¬†and Cavalli, it made me very happy. Not only because of the beautiful DISARONNO, our favourite amaretto flavoured liqueur, but also because of the limited edition bottle that houses it!

Family Lifestyle | Back To School Essentials! #DTDBTS

It’s that time of year, BACK TO SCHOOL! I remember last year feeling such hesitation, and anxiety. I also remember bawling like a baby as soon as he walked in those doors and could no longer see me. This year already feels so different. I know what a school day looks like, and that he’ll be ok. He has friends he’s excited to see, and I have some silence I’m excited for! (haha!.. “I just LOVE talking!” says Lyric, every day.) I’ve always loved back to school shopping, the new pencils, and binders, and stainless steel lunch containers and backpacks and shoes and.. now I sound like a dork. There’s just something so refreshing about starting a new year.
