Goodbye 2011. This year as every year that passes seems to have gone by faster than the last. Sitting here reflecting on all that has happened this year both in my personal life and my blog, there’s been a lot of highs and lows, all of which I am thankful for.
Not to get to philosophical on you guys while most of us are preparing on the eve of the biggest party of the year, but I’ve learned as great deal about myself this year. I’ve learned how important it is to live. And truly live, not just consume air. Life is incredible delicate, and I’m thankful for all the connections I’ve made and for the ones that continue to grow stronger.
For 2012 I not only resolve, but also am committed to uncovering me. Happiness starts from within and radiates outwards. That means I need to spend a lot more time getting to know the real me, and doing things and being with the people that I love. That’s one thing I’ve neglected in the years past that must end.
To cast away the regrets of the past year and move towards a better and brighter one I thought I’d just share everything that has touched and inspired me from 2011 and bring that positive energy on with me in the next.
11 trends/things I loved about 2011 that I’ll draw inspiration from for my wardrobe in 2012:
- Pattern on pattern
- Layering color
- Blush tones
- Structured satchels
- Buckle details
- Rooney Mara
- Tortoise print
- Polka dots
- Red lips
Happy New Year everyone!!

The weekend is here! My god it seems to roll around faster and faster every week. To start off the weekend I figure I’d share another summer look with you all. Summer temperatures seems to be slowly rising in Toronto, yesterday surprisingly was one of the hotter days.
I came across this pic of model Anais on Altamira MOD and fell in love with the simplicity of this modern spring summer look. I personally can’t go anywhere without a jacket, cardigan or blazer because I’m a polar bear; always cold.
So this look is the epitome of perfection for me; a tank and shorts under a blazer that can be removed to adjust to the changing weather. Perfect!
Finish off this look with a soft rosy lip, and if absolutely necessary an eye shadow close to your skin color. A little blush and lightly applied mascara would also work this look out for day.
To make this look go from day to night rock a pair of modern sandals with a sporty edge and a studded bowler bag with some attitude. Amplify your lashes and mascara and practise your best sexy pout for facebook!
Enjoy the weekend!!
Rihanna wore a pair of unmistakable Givenchy Optical print leggings ($885US) from the S/S 2010 RTW collection this week while out partying at Merah night club in London. From the time I saw them a few months ago, I fell in love with them. There’s been a shift from the regular old Leggings, to statement making pieces this season that seem to be finding their way into just about every latest fashion shoot.
Rihanna paired hers with a grey long sleeved v-neck with a very sexy cropped back and black pumps. Royal or Spoil queens?
