I can't believe it's almost 2020! This year has been filled with many ups and downs and I am very much looking forward to the New Year. I have all the positive vibes and sparkle to start the year off on the right foot :D.  David and I are ringing it in at the NYE Social @ Grand Bizarre in Toronto which will be a great time. There are still a few tickets left so click here if you're interested in attending. Whether you are celebrating at a dinner party or gala, I've put together a few looks from for last minute NYE ideas that will turn heads ;)... TURN UP THE SPARKLE - When it comes to sparkle, go big or go home. Sequins are bigger and better than ever, so you can find just about any garment or accessory to add sparkle to your look. You can't go wrong with a sequinned dress or jump-suit, as they can be styled so many different ways for future events.  Click here to shop this plunging sequin dress.  Add a furry jacket and some knee


We all know how tough it can be to find gifts for family, friends, and coworkers. I put together a list of essentials that everyone can relate to. No one on your list will be offended by these 10 gifts for the person who has everything...  NOVELTY  1 I  Star Name Registry - Who wouldn’t want a star named after them!? I got David this as part of his wedding gift and everyone thought it was pretty cool. Star Name Registry sends a nice gift box filled with astrological maps and other info that shows where ours is located. It has suggestions for the best time of year to view it and how to locate. There is also a certificate that has the star name - ours is Dalena :D. It’s a unique gift that is fun to talk about!  Check out Star Name Registry here and use code STYLE20 for 20% off.   WELLNESS  2 I   Essential Oils - Everyone can benefit from essential oils and many people do not know how beneficial and multi-purpose they are.  I love using them year-round, but espec


Swimwear can be just as chic as your day-to-day looks. It's all about adding the right pieces to your beach wardrobe so you look and feel fab even when you're half naked!   I've partnered with to share some of my style tips for pool season. Their website offers trendy, affordable wholesale swimwear online. Click here to shop GirlMerry swimwear.  Scroll down to read my 5 tips for looking chic in swimwear this summer... 1] LAYER  - Sheer or tassel skirts are the perfect pairing with a bikini or one piece this summer. Look for pieces that are sheer or transparent that work with a variety of bathing suits and summer tops.  There are several mesh scales available to suit your style.  This will show off your silhouette in a soft, sexy way and is great for heading to a restaurant or bar without having to change.  Remember to avoid more opaque fabrics as they will create a harsh line, visually cutting you in half. I love this white tassel skirt f


It's finally starting to feel like spring and that means full force wedding mode for us summer brides. There are so many important events leading up to the big day that require amazing outfits.  I know brides-to-be traditionally like to wear all white, however, you guys know I like to mix things up. I put together three alternative bridal looks that are sure to make you stand out at your shower, bachelorette or any other events!  I had a blast shooting this whimsical theme at The 7 TO [7th floor Kleinfeld @ The Hudson's Bay] in downtown Toronto with Photographer Kerry Meneses .  Look I  The silver sequin dress from  Dokotoo   - This cocktail dress adds some serious bling to the woman who wears it. The sheath silhouette is classy and elegant while the sleeves and fabric add all the excitement. Minimal jewelry is required, so I paired it with this cool Eargear piece from Sculpturewear which compliments the dress and adorns the face.  Click here to shop the dress


Having a good night sleep is SO important for productivity and health. After living in Europe, we know the importance of a good mattress [we used to put two mattress toppers on because the beds there are SO hard - and small!].  We had a comfortable mattress prior to our Endy, however, David had a tendency to get up in the night and the mattress would shift so much that it would wake me up. I am the type of girl who NEEDS her beauty sleep, so it didn't take long for me to start seeking alternative options.  When I came across Endy, I knew it was worth a try. With their 100-night guarantee you have the option  to  return the mattress if you aren't satisfied, no questions asked... and they will actually come back and pick it up from your home. We ordered the Endy Queen mattress, two Endy pillows and the Endy bedsheets which includes two pillow cases, a flat sheet and fitted sheet.  Everything arrived in compact boxes and I was super impressed with how the
