Much like fashion, I often recommend purchasing items that you will use past the holiday season, and table décor is no different! You wouldn't believe the incredible selection available right now at St Laurent Centre, all at great prices. This year, I've been lusting over the mix of rustic and glamour, as it's always a nice way to incorporate warmth, comfort and style. For your tabletop, don't [...]
Much like fashion, beauty has a ton of trends to try for fall. I've picked some of my favourite go-to's, ranging from high to low so you can make the choice of which one you'd like to try out! Bold Lips Nothing says fall quite like a ruby red lip. Pop it on in a pinch with a touch of mascara and blush, and you're all set for the day. Matte is the way to go, so you can make the choice of addi[...]
Forest, moss, citron, olive, pine, emerald... no matter which way you look at it, green is everywhere, in every shade for fall 2014. The best part? You can mix and match them for full impact.

From RiRi to Gwen Stefani, Lea Michelle to Selena Gomez, the underwear as outerwear trend has taken over the summer season! We may not all have the guts (and the body) of Rihanna, but we can certainly entertain the lingerie trend in a wearable, realistic way. To create this look, I started with an A-line leather skirt (cause let's face it; nothing's sexier than a sexy leather skirt), and[...]
Continuing with our Summer Style Series, this week is all about the gym rat... and a stylish one at that! The athletic trend was huge for spring, and its joyously been carried over to summer (who-hoo!). Starting with the top and skirt combo, I used mesh and perforated details to create an All-American sportswear theme. This 424 Fifth Lord & Taylor layered mesh a-line skirt is a seamless[...]
