This weekend was happily packed with a lot of regular home chores, visiting with friends, long afternoon walks in the sun, and plenty of meals dining in and out :) 

Above: My new Steve Madden boots I found at Capezio in the Toronto Eaton Centre. 
Below: Trying on wedding bands but designing my very own at our jeweler, Sergio Valente. The black patent case is my new Coach iPhone case.

Mani by moi! I used Essie's Aruba Blue and Nicole by OPI's Such A Go-Glitter.
If you haven't already noticed all the extra bling, frames, and filters to my pictures, I have downloaded the iPhone app, Pick. Pick allows you to further decorate your photos!


This afternoon after walking for 4 hours we were in Little Italy neighbourhood picking up dinner but quickly stopped into a cute cafe to enjoy a Nutella & Banana Crepe. It was a pleasant surprise to have a picture of the Eiffel Tower to look at too!

I had a lot of fun with my new app, Pick this weekend.. Check out my Pick profile

After buying my Top Shop jacket last weekend, I found a few more accessories my life was in need of.  I opened my second bottle of Givenchy HOT Couture my fiance picked up for me at the epic London Heathrow Duty Free Shop, or what I call Duty-Free PLAZA. I recently found myself inside a Sephora drooling over more YSL lip glosses. I love my YSL Gloss Pur in Watermelon gloss so much, I decided to pick up their new Sheer Candy lipgloss in Dewy Papaya which has stolen my preference since it ended up in my purse. What also ended up in my purse, jacket, and hands is a black patent iPhone case which comes in really handy for those extremely low key nights I'm out and about but don't need to carry much with me other than my phone, money, and I.D. Last but definitely not least are my new booties!!! I have officially retired my black leather Winter boots that are too heavy for Spring and seams inside and out are starting to rip. I found my new favourite Steve Madden Damiann boots at Capezio in the Toronto Eaton Centre. I love the shape of the boot, it reminds me of my Anna Sui x Hush Puppies Winter boots (that are also to warm to wear in Spring).

ELLE UK magazine attended Urban Outfitters A/W 2012 press presentation and posted this picture of these amazing boots.

Last Thursday my Fiance and I went to see Death Cab for Cutie at Massey Hall here in Toronto. It was a magical, musical, evening. Great floor seats and the Camera+ app for my iPhone were great additions to the show!

Paris will always be a special place in my heart, wearing Sonia Rykiel today made me realize I haven't recorded my favourite looks from the parisian family design house.

Today my Fiance and I walked along Queen Street in downtown Toronto and went on the hunt for a few necessary wardrobe additions. First picture is what I wore on this 'freshly showered' Sunday. Sweater is my Sonia by Sonia Rykiel knit sweater from Paris, my cat accidentally got her nail caught in the front, but my Jason Wu x Target scarf made the perfect accessory! Because our plan was to shop, I wore my Mulberry x Target crossbody bag. Le sigh :) 

I took Nathan to check out Moon Cake exhibit at Magic Pony, I didn't take a picture of this piece last time I was there. I was really happy to see almost everything sold. Hope to see these characters live as figurines someday!

On this last Friday I got new glasses at Hakim Optical (Queen and Bay Street location). The frame size, shape, material, colours and brand name (Exciting Lifestyle) were a perfect fit for me. It was the perfect start to this weekend :)

First stop on my list was independent clothing retailer, Body Blue for a new pair of jeans!!! It's been a few years since I bought 2 pairs of Levi's (a light & dark wash), and last Summer my light grey Pepe London's from London. I am dying for new denim in my life. Body Blue reminds me of The Jean Factory in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan where I grew up. It's a small independent retailer that carries a great inventory of quality denim brands. Today I fell in love with Fidelity denim!

It's still spring but these Franco Sarto sandals were love at first sight. The cognac leather, straps, padded sole, and brushed buckle are everything I could ask for in my sandal this summer. I can wear these with everything.. I found them at heel boy on Queen street. 

PicFrame collages is another fun activity I enjoy on my iPhone in addition to Instagram :)

Thanks for visiting!
