    Upgrading my Pajamas

    I had been looking to upgrade my pajama situation for a while now. My go-to uniform has always been my decade old high-school t-shirt and my husbands pajama bottoms. I have been on the hunt for a classic style of pyjamas inspired by the 60’s. In particular, my inspiration came from this scene from Man from UNCLE and these ones from the Queen’s Gambit. I could watch Man from UNCLE over and over, it is one of my favourite movies. And we all know I am obsessed with The Queen’s Gambit from this past post. Anyways back to pajamas… I did find a pair that came highly recommended, this pair…

    Thrifting Parisian Style- Part 2: The Hunt and Gather

    Picking up where we left off… after creating my list and inspo photos (from this post) I was off to thrift shop! Thrifting was so much fun, I’m officially a convert. It’s so exhilarating to find a diamond in the rough. Every time I find a winner I feel like I hit the jackpot, won the lottery, and all the stars aligned. The best part? I get that same thrill every time I put my new find on. If I couldn’t find something second hand, I tried to reutilize pieces that I already had in my closet. I did end up buying a couple of things online as well. Where…

    Thrifting Parisian Style – Part 1 : The Inspo

    If you saw my last post, you may remember I have been crushing haaarrrd on Parisian style. I am drawn to how the looks are timeless, yet interesting. French style has the best way of using contrast. They mix masculine and feminine, combine old and new, mix texture and pattern, and combine high end with low end. I wanted to collect some of the items I had been crushing on without having to spend a bazillion dollars. Luckily, the majority of the pieces I wanted to add to my wardrobe were classics or had a vintage vibe. I figured shopping thrift stores and second hand would be an awesome way…

    For Your Coffee Scrolling… September

    Welcome to September! How the hell did we get here? While work will be crazy this month, I had a lovely long weekend in Kingston to celebrate my bro-in-law’s bday. I’m also looking forward to a girls weekend later in the month (all within our social bubble). I am loving this summer-fall weather with sunshine and a cool breeze. What are you looking forward to this month? I’d love to hear! Here is what I have been browsing with my morning coffee lately: My saved folder on Instagram is filling up with dreamy, romantic Parisian style (see top photo). I’ve been loving browsing Rouje, Jeanne Damas, Léna, Camille Yolaine and…

    Clearly Glasses – An Online Shopping Story

    I had been wanting a new pair of glasses for quite a while. Since I wear glasses everyday at work and my run-in’s with uveitis had me avoiding contacts for months at a time, I was getting bored of my same old frames (even though I loved them). I was also interested to see if blue-light lenses would make a difference for me with the computer at work and at home. As luck would have it, during a FaceTime chat with my friend Claudia the other day, I complimented her on her glasses (see photos). They were so fun and cute! She told me that she got them online. Online?!…
