Rain Drops & Red Lace - Paris Travel Diary

We just got home from our Paris adventure and I'm so excited to share more photos with you all!  It was pouring rain for most of our visit, but we brought umbrellas and weren't going to let a little rain stop us.  C'est la vie!

On our second day in Paris, we took the metro to Merci (an adorable concept store famous for the little red car parked in their courtyard).  After browsing through the store and taking our fair share of photos, we decided to walk to L'as du falafel (an extremely popular Israeli restaurant that totally lives up to the hype) for lunch.  Even in the rain, it was an absolutely lovely walk.  I just couldn't resist stopping every block or so to take photos of gorgeous Parisian doors.

On our way to lunch, we stumbled upon this hidden little courtyard.  The architecture of the buildings surrounding it was stunning so we just had to stop & take some photos!

Six Summer Trends You Can Wear This Fall

Summer may have come and gone, but that doesn’t mean you have to put away your summer wardrobe just yet! The trends we saw last season have been quite versatile, and with the right accessories, you can look just as fabulous this fall as you did in June and July. Here's a few of my favourite summer pieces that you can put to good use in the cooler months.

1) The Striped Tee & High-Waisted Denim Shorts Combo
The striped tee is a simple but chic number that works for all seasons, especially in the fall. Take advantage of the warmer temperatures right now and pair the tee with your favourite high waisted jeans shorts.  To make the look more fall-appropriate, pair the outfit with an oversized sweater and ankle boots. Glamour also suggests wearing cosy tights and a jewel-toned scarf.

How to transition your summer wardrobe into fall!

Hello from Versailles!

So you may have noticed a lack of recent blog posts, but if you've been following me on Instagram you’d know know why!  I’m currently traveling through Europe on a fun little family vacation.  So far, it has been a wonderful trip, as we spent the first week exploring the streets of Paris and taking a million photos (I promise there are lots of exciting blog posts coming your way soon!).

Today, I thought I would share a few photos from our visit to Versailles.

Real talk... Using social media for good!

Social media tends to get a bad rap.  Between all the #selfies and insta-famous celebrities clogging our feeds, it's easy to forget that instead of using technology to just promote ourselves, we can use technology to make a difference and create positive change.

Today, I wanted to share a fun way that you can use your social media accounts for good!

TELUS & MTV are teaming up to create a music video that will inspire youth to accept the call to change the world and make a difference in their own local communities.  The fun part is, they want to feature you in the music video!

Until September 20th, upload a video to Instagram or Twitter of you singing, dancing (or lip-synching!) along to Francesco Yates' song "Call" with the hashtag #CallForChange and your clip could be included in the music video premiering at this year's WE Day events!

The best part is, for every video that is uploaded with the #CallForChange hashtag, TELUS will donate $10 to Free The Children!  Amazing right?!?  Sometimes it maybe feels like we don't have a lot to give, but uploading a 15 second Instagram video to help raise money for a great charity is something within all of our reach!

To read the full details on how to upload your video and get involved head to  I can't wait to see all your videos!  Feel free to tag me so I can see all your beautiful faces & amazing singing voices :)

Special thanks to TELUS for making this initiative possible!

Weekend Casual & my Favourite Fedora

Hey Everyone! Hope your long weekend was amazing!

Today I'm wearing a fun casual outfit and my new favourite hat (wide brimmed fedoras are pretty much the best!).  Now, they say you can't wear white after labour day, but fashion is all about breaking a few rules, right?  Because I love the way these crisp white jeans contrast against the soft worn in chambray button down and textured wool fedora.
