Collecting Charms: Michael Hill Charm Bracelet

7/14/2017

Michael Hill Charm Bracelet, Toronto Blogger, Beach Picnic
As many of you may know I am not too huge on jewellery and if I do wear jewellery, I choose to wear everyday pieces that are pretty minimal. When Michael Hill asked me to style a piece that best fit my personality and style, I couldn’t say “yes,” fast enough. However, I wanted to make sure that it was something that I could wear practically everyday and could potentially be modified or styled differently in the future. I found the idea of a charm bracelet fascinating for this reason.

My summer go to dress and some funky sneakers

I am sorry that I disappeared suddenly from my blog and social media. Unfortunately, I needed to take an unexpected social media break due to health reasons. Sometimes when your body says enough, you have to listen to it.

 In my last post I shared my May favorites with you which you. One of the items was a funky pair of  Kendra Dandy Vans Sneakers in mint green and baby pink. I alluded in that post that I would be styling them real soon because quite frankly I have been obsessed with them ever since I got them.

What I like about them is that they are unique and can turn the simplest of outfits into something new. My philosophy about fashion has always been individuality and creating your own unique sense of style but that does not have to happen by always trying to buy something new and exciting. Learn to mix your basic pieces with your not so basic pieces and learn to switch them all up to make different combinations.

I decided to pair the sneakers with this white eyelet dress and a straw bag that I purchased in Barcelona. The result, a fun causal outfit that is well put together with a little personality.

 Hope you enjoyed the post 
Until Next Time

May Favorites 2017: Travel Edition

6/11/2017

May Favorites 2017, Essie Nail Polish, The Body Shop, Kendra Dandy Vans Sneakers


I love reading and watching "my favorites" blog posts and YouTube videos so I thought I might start a monthly favorites of my own! 

The items pictured above are my favorite discoveries in May. Now that I caught the travel bug I am planning to travel and explore more this summer and I am definitely packing these items with me.

1. Essie Nail polishes

With open toe season here in full swing, a pretty pedicure becomes pretty important. I'm loving the variety of spring shades that are available in Essie nail polishes. 
My favorite colors are Mint Candy Apple (754), Resort Romanza ( hot pink), and Sugar Daddy ( light pink 473)

2. Kendra Dandy Vans Sneakers

 I love a good sneaker and they sure come in handy when walking long distances while traveling. I love these ones because they are so fun and girly. I have been rocking them everywhere since recently getting them. 
Curious on how to rock these cool sneakers? Stay tuned, next week I show you how to style them.

3. The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector

This is my go to hand cream because I suffer from dry and irritated hands due to frequently using the alcohol sanitizers at work. I also use it on my feet as well. I love it because it  keeps my hands and feet moisturized and soft without a greasy build- up.


4. The Ordinary: Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 serum

This facial serum is extremely affordable (less than $7 CAD) but it does the trick. You only need a few drops before applying your moisturizer or sunscreen. 

Hope you enjoyed the post 
Until Next Time 
Sincerely Miss J

Travel Guide: 48 hours in Paris

6/06/2017

Travel Guide, 48 hours in Paris, France, Europe Tour, Toronto blogger
Roof top view of Paris
As mentioned in a previous post here, my husband and I took a trip to France, Spain and Italy for our honeymoon. I had been to all three countries before but only visited both France and Spain at a surface compared to Italy where I spent three weeks years ago. 
Overall, our trip was amazing!!

The first stop was the romantic city of Paris where we were fortunate to be able to meet up with our Parisian friend. She was able to show us first hand Parisian lifestyle in a short amount of time. In 48 hours I can safely say we saw quite a bit of Paris and I wanted to share with you the amazing things you could do if you were strapped for time.

Transportation

The cheapest way to get around in Paris is with the metro (subway) or by bus. The metro is quite complex but once you figure it out, you can easily go to most tourist attractions on a budget. Another, option is taking a bus tour which gives you a quick introduction to all the attractions

Attractions 

Paris has tons of attractions to visit while you're there. My favorite places were the Eiffel TowerMusee du LouvreNotre Dame Cathedral, Luxembourg Gardens, Pont-NeufArc de Triomphe, and Palais Royal.
 When visiting these popular tourist spots be prepared for large crowds and long line ups unless visiting very early in the morning

Shopping

Paris has multiple options for shopping. My favorite department store was Galeries Lafayette. This department store is one of the most gorgeous stores I have ever seen. It has a breathtaking cathedral ceiling as pictured below. My next  favorite shopping area was Le Printemps which is also nearby. It has similar brands as the Galeries Lafayette but is a much smaller department store. It has a beautiful roof top restaurant and terrace that gives you a perfect view of Paris while sipping on cocktails (see cover picture above). Lastly,  I recommend visiting Avenue des Champs-Élysées. Champs- Elysess is a well known commercial street with many bistros, restaurants and shopping. It's also one of the most famous streets in the world and extends from the Arc de Triomphe area to the Louvre.

My favorite Neighborhoods

Paris has many buzzing and beautiful neighborhoods.  The following were my favorite neighborhoods for their beautiful architecture, tasty cafes/ bistros, and  endless things to do.
We stayed in the Saint Germain de Pres area. It was a central area with easy access to Notre Dame Cathedral and to the Metro. I also enjoyed the Latin Quarter  which had a very lively atmosphere close to the universities. It has a lot of places to eat that is reasonably priced.

Things to know: 

1. Be prepared to pay to use the restrooms in public places 
2. Be aware of pickpockets in tourist concentrated areas, always have your personal belongings in sight 
3. Be prepared to be solicited by individuals selling multiple items

Hope you enjoyed the post 
Until next time,
Sincerely Miss J

Travel Diary: Comfortable Chic

If you have been following me on Instagram you would have noticed that my husband and I escaped to Europe for our honeymoon. We finally got to go on that honeymoon that we had been waiting for. We decided to travel to France, Spain, and Italy and explored a few cities in each of these countries over the past couple of weeks. The trip was amazing but we were definitely on the go much more than we thought we would be, which means not enough relaxation. It was a challenge looking chic while being comfortable on our daily adventures.

The Perfect Staycation At The Grand Hotel and Suites

5/11/2017

For many who know me personally there is no secret that these last few months have been stressful and exhausting. However, with stresses and obstacles come great opportunities for learning and growth. 
You may have noticed on some of my social media channels and Instagram that my husband and I recently had a staycation in Toronto. We needed to escape without going too far. We decided to take a staycation right here in Toronto at The Grand Hotel and Suites.
