#ThriftStyleThursday - Hippie Boho Chic

#ThriftStyleThursday – Hippie Boho Chic

Happy Thrift Style Thursday! I’ve been absent from the festivities due to my trip but I’m back at it! This week’s theme is Happy Hippie/ Boho Chic.

I got excited about this theme because it was a great excuse to wear my daisy hair band I got at Ardenes for $3. I also got to wear a shirt I never planned on wearing. I bought this shirt a year ago in hopes of using the fabric to make a cool tote.…

Moving on…

I have news! I’m moving into my own place with my boyfriend next week. I am beyond excited – it’s been a long time coming. I’m moving to a lovely city called Kingston about 300 km from where I am now :/! I am both excited and terrified at the prospect of being a responsible adult. I feel happy that I have an opportunity to live in a new place, find a new job and make some new friends. We found a…

It was a beautiful sunny day yesterday, high of 21c! My friend Alysha and I went for coffee and did a little bit of walking about town. We stopped by some bright benches to take photos.

Back, again!

I’m back!

I feel like I’ve started posts this way a few times since this blog’s inception. I’ve been lucky enough to travel to five countries in the past 10 months. Just thinking about it is crazy! Do I have an amazing job where I make a TON of money? Nope. I just make travelling my “splurge item”. I haven’t had to make any large purchases in the last year and I’ve also had a minimum amount of…

Super Simple Gluten & Dairy-Free Pancakes

Super Simple Gluten & Dairy-Free Pancakes

gluten-free-pancakes

Hi friends, today I wanted to share a quick recipe. As part of my grain-free challenge, I searched for alternatives to my usual breakfast foods. My mom shared a recipe she discovered while in Poland for the simplest pancakes ever. Here it is:

Basically this is a 2 ingredient, 2 step recipe. Can not get any easier than that!

Simply crack two eggs in a bowl and whisk them until they are light…

#ThriftStyleThursday - Pretty in Pink

#ThriftStyleThursday – Pretty in Pink

If I was a creative person, today’s outfit would have been totally 80′s Molly Ringwald. I however did not think outside of the box (or maybe it was in the box?) when I thought about today’s theme. I just figured everyone was wearing pink things…oh well.

I could pretend I was channeling Molly Ringwald with my oversized pink blazer? (Just spent 10 minutes trying to Google Molly Ringwald in a pink…

Grain-free for a week

Grain-free for a week

Happy Sunday!

For those of you 9-5ers I know this means the weekend is almost over – but for me it is just beginning. TGIM (I get Monday-Wednesday off)! You know when you have those days and everything just seems so good? Might be partially due to the wonderful sunny day we’ve been having here in the GTA, but today has just been awesome. Feels like Spring is finally arriving and I didn’t wear my…

#ThriftStyleThursday - Athletic Aesthetic

#ThriftStyleThursday – Athletic Aesthetic

athletic-outfit-7

Happy Thrift Style Thursday! Today’s theme is athletic aesthetic. To be honest, my athleticism (or interest in sport) – on a scale of 1 to 10 – is about a negative 2. The only reason I even have this baseball tee is because my boyfriend bought me it. I do however live a fairly active lifestyle so I think I can be forgiven.

Leaving on a Jet Plane

Leaving on a Jet Plane

I’ve been thinking about travelling a lot this week. I’m going to Cuba in two weeks and I couldn’t be more excited! There’s something about getting on a plane and landing in what seems like a different world, that makes you feel alive.  At times, it only takes a few hours to find yourself in another world. The more I travel, the more I realize how accessible it really is. If you play your cards…

Happy Thrift Style Thursday and Happy First Day of Spring! What better way to kick off Spring than to share the Spring-iest trend ever?

PASTELS-1

Today’s theme is pastels and I think I might have overdone it. When I found these pants at Joe Fresh for $6.99 I was already thinking about pairing it with my thrifted minty sweater. Is it too much mint?

Yesterday I wrote about my outlet haul, and mentioned that this coral dress was my favorite find. Because it’s -10 out and I’ve nowhere fancy to go – I decided to style my new dress at home. Why do I love this dress? Well, it’s a fabulous orange, and I feel like a million bucks in it. Do I need any more reasons? I also discovered that it has pockets! I couldn’t ask for more in a dress…

Outlet Haul + Major Closet Downsizing

Happy Monday & Happy St.Patrick’s Day!

I had a lot of fun this weekend – I went on a mini shopping spree with my coworker Linda on Saturday. I strayed from my usual thrift stores and revisited the Toronto Premium Outlets - a hop and a skip from my house. (If you’re a GTA dweller and haven’t gone yet – go!)

I visited the usual suspects, Kate Spade, then Fossil, Coach and The Hudson’s Bay Company.…
