Summer is here and we are definitely feeling it in the city. From the hot subway commutes to the stormy evenings, I’m sure many of you (like me) are wishing that fall would come a little sooner than later. However, on those nights which are slightly cooler, I often find myself dreaming of having our own outdoor space, somewhere we could grill, or relax outside with a glass of wine (the downside of city living). For now, I’ll keep dreaming, but in the meantime here are some of my favorite summer patios and suggestions on how you can get the look.
Heading to the Kentucky Derby this weekend or hosting a Derby themed party and wondering what to wear? Here’s a quick and easy tutorial on how to make your own last minute fascinator!
I am so excited about the Lilly Pulitzer for Target collaboration! From florals and pastels to eye catching prints this collection screams summer fun.

Most items will range from $20 to $40 and can only be purchased instore and online from Target.com.
In light of this range officially launching online on Sunday (April 19), I’m sharing a few of my favourite picks!
Spring, oh how I’ve missed you! Your longer days, brighter evenings and pastel colours make me extremely happy. So in light of this long awaited warmer season, I’ve chosen eleven of my top picks for spring!
Some of you may or may not have heard of Brilliant Earth, a San Francisco based jewellers. I recently came across this website and instantly fell in love with everything on their site. Founded by Beth Gerstein and Eric Grossberg, their mission is to provide the highest quality jewellery originating from pure sources and harvested using socially responsible practices. Not only this but Brilliant Earth focuses on supporting underdeveloped communities ravaged by the jewellery industry by donating a share of their profits.
This exclusive new design collection ‘Wisteria’ is inspired by the natural beauty of autumn and reflects the sinuous curves of vines, rippling leaves in the breeze and aims to capture light and movement in each individual piece.
In light of this beautiful new collection, I’ve chosen a few of my favourite items from the line and created four nature inspired wedding mood boards to reflect the persona of each piece of jewellery.
The rings which are my favourite pieces from the collection are said to evoke branches and vines with curving and overlapping bands that represent two lives intertwining. Earrings and necklaces from the collection are imbued with subtle movement that evokes falling leaves while pave diamonds bring a dazzling light.
As you can see, the result is pieces that look not only dynamic and delicate but radiate the curves and movement from nature itself.
