Midweek Inspiration!

  "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication." 
- Leonardo da Vinci

I agree with Leonardo's above quote and that is why I love the simplicity of these outfits. The combination of grey, white and black is  effortlessly chic and perfect for the winter months.

Deux Lux

Deux Lux was launched in 2005 by Fati Mahdavi and Sara Neghadi. This intergenerational duo creates bags with animal friendly synthetics that make you look and feel like a million bucks!!! Although I usually only buy leather, I would definitely make an exception for this glamorous and chic line of bags!! What do you think, would you buy one??

Snow Day!!!

One of my favorite things about St.John's is the Snow Day. A Snow Day is when it snows so much over night that the entire city shuts down until the roads can be cleared and people can get out of their houses. Yesterday, was a snow day which meant that we basically had a weekend during the week. If you can believe it, all of the snow in these pictures came in just one day!! Anyways, I took advantage of the snow day by going shopping and I actually bought my Christmas/New Years dress which I am so excited to wear!! After our little shopping excursion we met some friends at the pub for nachos and chatted the day away by watching the snow lightly fall!! It was a perfect day!!

Happy Weekend,

Babylonstoren - A Boutique Hotel

As I have mentioned before, we are moving to Victoria in the new year. We already rented a house there so that we arrive we have a place to go. The upstairs of the house has a loft style bedroom which I am super excited about but also a little worried about how I am going to decorate it. As such, I have been looking for loft style design inspiration and I came across this beauty. It is a Babylonstoren, stylish boutique hotel in South Africa which also doubles as a working farm. So guests can enjoying harvesting food from their garden  and cooking it is their stylish abode. I have to say it sounds a lot like our house in Saskatchewan. What do you say, would you spend your vacation at a place like this??

Sparkles and Sequence

Ever since I can remember I got pick out a Christmas holiday dress for the upcoming year. So when Christmas decorations start to adorn the streets and Christmas music starts to take over the airways, I start thinking about my Christmas dress. This year, I can't seem to get enough sparkles and sequence. I think these sequence dresses by Blaque Label would be perfect for the holiday season, especially for a new years eve party! I have my eye on a  silver one and although it may be a bit much for Saskatchewan, I think I will rock it anyways!!

Down the Block...

Our time in St. John's is quickly running out. I am actually having a hard time believing that in less than 3 weeks we will be gone from here forever. Over the short time that we have been here, I have fallen in love with the city, the culture, the amazing scenery on the Island and most of all, we have met some amazing friends which I will be really sad to leave. But I know that they will be our friends for a lifetime and we will definitely see them again. 

As I said before, I had very little space to pack for my trip out here so I am feeling a bit low on my clothing choices, especially necklaces of which I didn't bring any. So although I would have loved to wear a fabulous necklace with this is what it is - plain and classic. 

Sweater: BCBG
Skirt: United Colors of Benetton
Shoes: Dolce Vita

P.S- This post is a glimpse of what our street looks like as each photo was taken at a different spot on our block. 


Christmas Wish List

Is it too early to have a Christmas wishlist? I think not. Maybe it is, but, we pick names in our family and my sister in law who has my name requested that I give her a list. And I thought the easiest way to make the list would be a post on my blog. These are my current top picks for our $100 limit but make sure to check back in case I think of something else. So here goes Lacy and Sonia if you are interested...

iphone photo roundup

I have been taking a lot of photos on my iphone lately and I like the idea of having a iphone photo roundup at the end of the week. So here goes. This weekend we went to our friends cottage which sits on a cliff that over looks the ocean. We had the most amazing time and they were the most gracious hosts. 

I loved the display above their fireplace.

They made us the most delicious eggs benedict for breaky!
We went for a hike by the sea in a town called Flatrock and the wind was crazy cold!!
And the waves were crazy strong!
But the view was amazing!
Oh yah, we also saw some massive boulders!
