Beauty: Native

Something amazing about being a blogger and influencer is when you get the chance to work with brands you love and stand behind. While I always make a point of only working with brands I love, one brand that has made a large change in my life over the last year is Native. My mum and sister first introduced me to the brand last year as we have all made a change to use more natural product, and switch from antiperspirant to deodorant. If anyone has ever made this switch before, you know it can be challenging to find a product that you love. I have tried numerous aluminium- free deodorants through the years, but finally I found one that worked amazing! I will write more about my switch to deodorant below, but I really want to introduce you to a new product line that Native just launched, which has also made a big impact on my life. 

Friday Favourites: Subtle Winter Whites

While everyone may not be ready to embrace Christmas, I definitely am!
I tried to hold off a little bit this year, but with all of the Christmas planning I have been doing, I just couldn't help myself!
I decided to start subtle with simple Christmas decor. I think this style can be left as is, or in a few weeks, you can add more reds, greens and twinkly lights!

Favourite Decor:
Hello! Each Wednesday I share some of the photos that stopped me in my tracks while I was scrolling Instagram the previous week. Here are this week’s picks: 1. @Birdie_Farm: What is it about three twin beds lined up in a row?  Such a cute bunk room! 2. @OurFauxFarmhouse: The chalkboard with the potted evergreens- so …
I love this farmhouse style decor! It is really subtle, but beautiful! I also ordered myself a cute Christmas sign like this from a local vendor! So excited to pick it up!

Friday Favourites: Boo

It's the last full week of October and fall is flying by!
Loving these Halloween inspired photos this week. I always remember loving Halloween as a kid - all of the school parties, having to wear layers under my costume because it's always really cold at night for trick-or-treating, then dividing all of my candy up to see how many of each candy I got! So many Halloween goodies!

Favourite Decor:
I love the little hints of Halloween added to this living room and the cute boo mug! It looks like the bats are mad of construction paper, which is such a cute idea!! Love it. 

Friday Favourites: Pink Halloween

After visiting Peggy Porschen this summer, I eagerly follow their account to see their decor and sweet changes per season. If you don't follow them on instagram, you definitely should! They cute Fall display is what inspired this Fall Halloween theme this week!

Friday Favourites: Halloween Haunts

I've been enjoying this Fall season and now I am getting into all of the fun Halloween ideas for decor, baking, parties and costumes! Here are a few of my favourites from this week. 
Fall porch.  I like the harvest aspect instead of Halloween.  The decorations can stay through Thanksgiving - when Christmas takes over on Black Friday.

Friday Favourites: Thanksgiving

Canadian thanksgiving is next weekend and I am really excited to head up to the cottage, enjoy the cooler air and atmosphere. Plus eat lots and lots of baked goods!

Style: Fall Favourites

This week I decided to share of my favourite items I added to my closet this Fall. I am sure there are items that I am missing, but I tried my best to include all of my recently purchased items. 

Friday Favourites: Apple Picking

Tomorrow is the first official day of fall and I can't wait for the cooler weather that is coming to Toronto. Today it is a little sticky and hot, but it is supposed to drop quite a bit. It's becoming the perfect weather for fall activities like apple picking. 
Photo from @emscourtney
This cute photo above was taken this same weekend last year and it was sweltering hot, but I wanted to take all of the cute fall photos so I suffered in all of these layers!

DIY: Fall Welcome Mat

I have been planning this DIY for ages, and I finally had the chance to do it and I am so obsessed!
I fell in love with the cute Fall welcome mat trend last year, but the price tag to buy one and have it shipped to Canada was pretty high. If you aren't into trying a DIY definitely check out etsy if not keep trying!

Afternoon Tea

When I was in England a few weeks ago I had the chance to check out a new place for afternoon tea! If you follow me on Instagram, you have seen many of these photos scattered throughout my feed, but I am sharing a little bit more about the day and a few more shots that aren't on Instagram!

Tour Du Mont Blanc



If you have been following me on Instagram, you know I recently hiked the Tour du Mont Blanc, which is a hiking loop where you hike through the mountains surrounding Mont Blanc. I flew into Geneva, and took a bus into Les Houches where I started the hiking trip. The idea is that you are hiking from hotel to hotel. 

Friday Favourites: Crisp Air

I never want to wish away summer, but I am always welcoming Fall with open arms. I love this time of year! The crisp air and the entire cheery atmosphere. For the last few years, I restart Gilmore Girls in the Fall, and start baking away. I have started planning all of my Fall content, but until I start posting it all, I wanted to share some subtle Fall inspirations instead of jumping right in!

Also, I have been slacking on the blog posts again. I think everyone can understand how hard it is to keep up with working and life. I have really missed sharing my favourites and curating a post like this, so I am hoping to bring them back for now!
How to celebrate Fall with your best girlfriends from Style me Pretty
Number 1 - check out the Style me Pretty link for this photo. These girls had the cutest fall dinner party, and I am super jealous! It looks absolutely stunning, like the essence of fall captured in one photo. I need this in my life!!

An Instagram Guide to Paris

At the end of May, I took a trip to France with my mum and the majority of the trip was spent in Paris. I finally compiled a list of all of the different places we visited, as well as the photos I took in each place. It was absolutely lovely, and as it was at the end of May, the weather was the perfect temperature. The added bonus of travelling in May was that there were not as many tourists as there would be in the middle of the summer!

Boho Beach Dinner

Pinterest has been inspiring me with these cute Boho dinner settings, so I thought I would create my own at the cottage!

Sending Birthday Wishes with Greetabl

Sending love and birthday wishes has never been so cute! I had the chance to work with Greetabl to send birthday wishes to my sister!

AM to PM Skincare Routine


Before I left for Paris, Sunday Riley sent me the best kit including some of their products to take with me!
I have been a fan of Sunday Riley Tidal cream for a few years now, but they sent me a few other products to try!

Dîner en Blanc, Paris

One of the main reasons my Mum and I went to Paris was for Dîner en Blanc - which seems a little crazy, but if you keep reading you will see the amazing time we had and why this night is so unique!

Styling Flowers at Home

Spring is in the air and I am ready to fill my home with fresh flowers!
There are so many beautiful ways to bring flowers into your home and I am sharing a few of my favourites from Pinterest.

Basic Naked Cake DIY

I have fallen in love with Naked Cakes, so I decided to challenge myself and learn how to make one! I learned a lot along the way, and I definitely think it is possibly to make different flavours and for differently skill levels to try this!
I know I am going to start making these more often, and being more adventurous with flavours!
