Outfit: Back to School

September usually has several associations with it including the changing seasons, cooler weather and kids returning back to school. In honour of that, I decided to do a back to school inspired outfit - plaids and darker colours. Another part of my inspiration of this outfit was also Gossip Girl and traditional uniform attire.

Outfit: Mad Hatter

Morning lovelies! What were everyone's plans this long weekend? Mine consisted of lots of food, catching up with friends, and the beach! No better way to kiss summer goodbye than spending the last weekend at the beach :)

Canadian Beauty Launch: Amie Skincare

Happy Saturday! An amazing London-based beauty brand has touched down in Canada recently! Welcome to Canada, Amie Skincare! The line debuted in Shoppers Drug Marts across Canada on August 11 and I was lucky enough to receive some products from them to review first hand. 

Created by leading beauty expert and ex-Estée Lauder executive, Fiona Parkhouse, Amie, if you didn't know, means "friend" in French. The brand aims to bring you beauty products that will become "your skin's best friend" as they are free of harsh chemicals (mineral oil, parabens), animal cruelty-free, vegan friendly and on average, 95% natural per each product. I'm always an advocate for anything au natural and was actually reading into the labels of my beauty products a lot for the past year to understand what was really in them so it's a happy coincidence that this brand just appeared in Canada!

Outfit: Coral Maxi

Hope everyone's having a great start to their week! I spent last weekend at the cottage up north with my family, which was a great change of scenery and very relaxing. We took the boat out to the lake to fish and explore and also stopped by some of the smaller towns to walk and shop. I can't say the restaurants were much good but the local bakeries and markets had amazing food surprisingly!

This was an outfit I wore last week while strolling through a pretty park near my house. It always feels like a different scene to be surrounded by so much nature even though it's actually so close to where I live - that's one of the good things about Toronto I guess - the local beaches and parks make you feel far away from the city but you don't need to actually leave the city to escape ;)
