Hello Lovelies! Today we had such a fun day it reminded me of our time at Ollia Macarons & Tea at the wine and macaron pairing event, perfect for a Throwback Thursday post :) by Ollia is the cutest Macaron & tea shop here in Calgary, with the most delicious eats and treats. This summer we had the best time at one of their Macaron Pairing Events together with Flying Wines. We tasting several different flavors of macarons, paired up with a uniquely sourced drink from France. Our first pairing was a delicious Sassy cider together with a Salted Caramel macaron. Next, we moved on to a Macon Chaintre Chardonnay paired with a Lemon Poppyseed macaron – yum! :) Then we got to try a splash of Mourgues du Grès Rosé with a Rose Petal Macaron, again, perfectly matched! Finally, we ended the night with a delicious Julienas Red deliciously paired with a Rocher Chocolate macaron. Definitely such a fun night, and learned so much about the different regions in France and the culture as we went along our tasting journey. Which macaron pairing event will you check out next? <3

If you haven’t checked out Part I and Part II of the series, they are a must-read :) Head over there to learn more about Tobi and see the stunning pieces for brightening up your wardrobe and creating the perfect chic boss-lady style! For today’s look, I styled this adorable lace swing dress! There is just something about faux leather leggings that is absolutely chic, yet comfortable at the same time.

Hello, Lovelies and Happy Tuesday to you all! Today on the blog is Part II of the series I’m doing together with Tobi. If you haven’t read Part I yet, definitely check it out to learn more about Tobi and see all my tips for styling a floral dress to brighten up your fall wardrobe.

There are a few looks we all count on as closet stables. For today’s look, I chose this ivory chiffon Tobi blouse to dress it up and create something chic, and career-girl focused. Whether you’re wearing it to the office, a night out, or a weekend stroll you can’t go wrong with this year-round essential. This time I paired it with my black Zara jeans, a cute lace silk cami, and classic black heels. Plus, I couldn’t resist rounding it all off with my new camel woven jacket from Marc New York at the Bay. So inspired by this look, and absolutely love kicking off this Tuesday with a full-on boss lady style. What are some of your staple items for a fall chic look? <3

Hello, Lovelies! Today on the blog is the first of a 3-Part Series that I am doing together with TOBI. The Tobi brand is designed in LA and inspired by the beachy coast to the heart of downtown. They are free, and in your face with energy and attitude, and there’s never a dull moment! Their In-House Design Team sketches and drapes new garments daily mixing function with style, creating clothes that are cute, sexy, effortlessly cool and comfy. The team at Tobi are dedicated to forecasting trends, spotting upcoming styles, and determining the colors, prints, fabrics and silhouettes, that are hot for every season!

Today’s look is this cute floral off-the-shoulder Tobi dress. So comfy and flowy! Although fall style is more often the cozy knits and plaid patterns, bringing in floral prints is a great way to spice up your wardrobe and add a romantic touch – which is my fave! Plus, it’s a perfect way to brighten up your fall style! I love pairing it with my over-the-knee boots and a cozy shawl wrap to keep warm in the chilly air. There’s nothing better than feeling great in what you wear and truly happy, which is so true in this dress! What are your favorite ways to mix up your fall favorites this year? <3

Hello lovelies! Today I am so excited to share with you all about my experience with Skoah Skin Care! I was invited for a fully customized, Facialiscious facial at the Skoah in Willow Park here in Calgary. At Skoah, they call facials “skin care workouts”. The workouts include some deep cleansing and exfoliation, customized masks, and an amazing muscle-melting massage. But don’t you worry, these workouts are relaxing, blissful, and ‘sweat-free’ :) All their products are made with amazing high-quality, highly-refined lipids and oils such as olive oil, shea butter, and coconut oils. Yum! They even have amazing “skin gym” membership options to get monthly facials, including perks like getting 10% off on their products and special member-only gifts!

So can I just say again, it was literally the best facial I have ever had. Skoah is one of the first salons in the industry who focuses just on facials. Amazing! They are so attentive to exactly what your skin needs, and they even give you a little “report card” to help keep track of the work you’ve done for your skin. I also got to peruse their amazing line of products and opted for simply adding a few products to my existing skin care routine. Since I haven’t found a good toner in a while, I chose the Tonik, which smells amazing and reminds me of my facial every time a spritz :) Then I also got the hydradew mask, which helps add that extra bit of moisture I need for these dry Calgary winters! Plus, it smells like fresh cut Mellon, which is always a necessity!

Now, if you love a facial as much as I do, or just know that you are way overdue for that skin workout, you are in luck! I have teamed up with the lovely ladies at Skoah to give all my amazing readers a special offer! Simply use the link below to book your own personalized 45-minute facial (valued at $85!!) for only $35.
