Sitting there, alone in a foreign country, far from my job and everyone I know, a feeling came over me. It was like remembering something I’d never known before or had always been waiting for, but I didn’t know what. Maybe it was something I’d forgotten or something I’ve been missing all my life. All I can say is that I felt, at the same time, joy and sadness. But not too much sadness, because I felt alive. Yes, alive. That was the moment I fell in love with Paris. And I felt Paris fall in love with me.

With the 2012 almost coming to a close... 
I decided to do a round-up of the best memories in my travels.
A 4-day getaway with friends where we shared laughter & everlasting memories.
Plus a proposal in the park marks it to be a memorable trip.
Through the eyes of Alex, Sebastien, Kai, Derek & Isabelle.

Welcome to our Empire State of Mind.

A touching tribute from Demi Lovato for the Newtown tragedy.
I hope and pray that we should never experience something like that ever again.

Rest in peace...

Happy Holidays. I hope you all enjoyed your Christmas with your loved ones. 
Mine was filled of endless plates of foods, family times and pastries galore. 

Klaya is... 
feminine, simple, fluid  and light.
Klaya want to be with all woman everyday with lots of class and be discreet...
It fits in the woman's life because it's a brand she can wear every moment of the day.

I discovered this brand during my shopping escapades at Canon Blanc. A new Parisian boutique that is run by the most adoring Parisian couple carrying all of the brands you would find in Paris. I got a shirt and I can't wait to see what they get in for the next season. Apparently, it's going to be marvelous.

So I'll leave you with this video of their Autumn/Winter 2012-2013 collection.

A couple of weeks ago Pantone released their 2013 colour of the year.
Emerald Green. I love it. This colour is classic yet bold. 
It's a good colour to move away if your closet is just filled with the monochrome palette 
because it is not a big a loud colour like a red. 
So, if you are scared of colour but want to try something new, Emerald Green is the perfect choice.
1 // Flapper Maxi Dress, Top Shop
2 // Flawed Emerald Cabochon Bracelet, Kenneth Jay Lane
3 // Gia Tote, Michael Kors
4 // Hoffs Earrings, Jene DeSpain
5 // How Charming iPhone Cover, Jagger Edge
6 // Dina Suede Pumps, alice + olivia



Happy Friday!
Christmas is just a weekend away and there's still no snow on the ground.
Not that I'm complaining but every time the weather is so mild. 
Christmas just creeps out of nowhere. And we are frantically checking off our shopping list.
Here's a glimpse of our tree that I had no part of decorating (so no credit to me) :P

The Great Gatsby // May 2013
I love love the book. And I cannot wait for the movie to come out. 
I was so disappointed that they postponed the release date. Now I have to wait for another 6 months.
They just recently released a new trailer (after the jump) along with the movie posters. 
So excited for it! I can't wait to see Leo as Gatsby.

So, I guess tartan is back with a bang and its better than ever. 
I love this collection because it's edgy yet it has very feminine pieces.
And I love the colours... more reasons to get some red in my closet!

... tied up with strings these are a few of my favourite things.

Products should always be in nice packages. Trust me. It's everything! 
Don't you just want to buy this jar of honey? Compared to the traditional brands... it's pretty looking.
It looks so much nicer on your kitchen counter than those plastic containers. :)


More or less of what's been going on in my life for the past 2 weeks through Instagram.
I just realised that my Instagram is just filled with food and fashion. 
I've been on a baking spree the past 2 weeks // giving away my holiday treats to family & friends. 
I'll probably be taking a hiatus from baking... until next year :)

The first thing that pops into my head when I think of Audrey Hepburn is... timeless
Her look is the epitome of classic sophistication. Pearls. Little Black Dress. Tiffany's. 
Audrey Hepburn once said "My look is attainable. Women can look like Audrey Hepburn by flipping out their hair, buying the large sunglasses, and the little sleeveless dresses."
Yes. That is true we all can look like Audrey Hepburn. However, her style is part of her. Not everyone has that aura of sophistication. This is what I admire about her style.

Why can't we get these cool art installations in Toronto?
Like a giant swing playground!!
If you are in NYC before Jan 6 - go check it out at the Armory.
Swing. Swing.

"The even of a thread," Ann Hamilton's installation at the Park Avenue Armory, features 42 large wood-plank swings, for use by visitors. Swinging agitates an immense curtain. The swings, suspended from the hall's elaborately trussed ceiling beams by heavy chains, are also tied to the rope-and-pulley system that holds up the curtain. When the swings are in action, the curtain, made of a lightweight silk twill, rises and dips, and the air is stirred, causing further billowing and fluttering. The swings, which are clearly not built for children, are wide enough to accommodate two, or sometimes even three, adults or adolescents. 


Oh Phillip Lim! One of each, please! 
I would literally wear everything in this collection.
I'm seriously drooling over it... I want it so badly.

Maria Cornejo really has a knack of creating the most amazing prints. Mesmerized.
A couple of years ago I tried on a Zero + Maria Cornejo dress but I regrettably didn't purchase it and it was one of those biggest shopping regrets. I still dream of that dress. So, if I do spot any of these items during any of my shopping escapades... I may be quite tempted to add it in my closet. 
Because I'm in love. (Yes... I say that a lot) But LOOK at it!
