My husband and I didn't get to go on a honeymoon immediately after our wedding. Due to bad timing and planning fatigue we decided to plan it later on. 
I love traveling and there are so many places around the world that I would love to visit. My top three are Morocco, Greece, and Kenya.

Slaying in a Gingham Suit: The Perfect Confidence Booster

Gingham Patterned Suit, Banana Republic StreetStyle
How confident are you? I am sure if you ask the most confident person they have most likely had days where they were insecure and unsure about themselves. Building confidence takes time and is an ongoing process. For many men a good fitting suit is tied to confidence. For women I feel the same way as a good fitting suit can definitely make you feel in command and confident. Plus, a suit is a wonderful investment as both pieces can be interchanged with other items.

5 Tips to Building Your Network

5 Tips to Building Your Network, Toronto Blogger, Sincerely Miss J

In any industry building a network is essential because it allows you to connect with like minded people, which can essentially grow multiple aspects of your life.
This concept is no different in blogging or social media. Networking is key if you want to survive in this large world of blogging. I found out the hard way years ago about how difficult it could be if you don't make an effort to build your network in blogging. This resulted in stunted growth and blogging became a pretty lonely place for me.

Currently Crushing on... The mule

Spring Mule Footwear, Monochrome fashion, Sinerely Miss J Blog
It has taken me a while but I'm glad to say that I jumped onto the mule bandwagon and I am currently crushing on everything mules. The mule is a style of shoe that is backless. Why do I enjoy mules so much? They are so dang easy to put on, which is a nice change from the struggle of putting and lacing up my winter boots. I also love the fact that they come in all different styles, colors, and price points.

The great thing about this trench coat is that it can be paired with tons of basic items like a simple white t-shirt and jeans. There are a variety of different outfits that a trench coat would go great with!

 Time for some bright colors and warmer weather. We've received a blast of spring weather the last couple of weeks here in Toronto and I'm hoping it will last (it probably won't).  
Although I'm not one to enjoy being the center of attention, I couldn't help but fall in love with this fuchsia attention grabbing dress. I love the dress because it's modest, bright, girly and fun. I paired the dress with this funky clutch made by Shasha of SB Clutch.  

How to Add Color to Your Office Look

How to Add Color to Your Office Look,Toronto Blogger, Office Wear, Sears Canada
If I start wearing spring colors now, will spring come sooner? 
Whenever I'm feeling the winter blues, I often try to add pops of color to my wardrobe.  Although some offices may be more conservative than others, you can still get creative and not have to resort to the same black, brown, and grey palette. 
If you are in a more conservative work environment and would like to wear more color, avoid wearing multiple bright colors at once. Pick one color to be your focus.

I was even too tried to participate in things that I loved doing including blogging.

The Perfect Sweater Dress: How to Style a Sweater Dress this Season

Sweater Dress, winter outfit, Toronto blogger,fashion
The sweater dress is such a great wardrobe staple for colder weather. Dressing up during winter can be a little tedious.Your options for what to wear naturally narrows due to having to give up certain items of clothing to be cold weather appropriate. Luckily for us here in Toronto the winter has been mild compared to the past. As a result, I have been able to still wear skirts and dresses without the tights.

Currently Crushing on... The Gucci GG Marmont Mini Camera Bag

I've been seeing the Gucci brand everywhere for the last 1-2 years but more so this past year. As they say if you get conditioned enough by seeing something frequently things tend to grow on you. When I read Rose's review from the blog Dadouchic on the Gucci GG Marmont Mini Camera Bag  I fell in love with it.
 I love the classic design which makes it practical to use on a daily basis. This is especially true when compared to some of Gucci's more flashy and unique bags. However, the price is a bit much and way out of my budget but a girl can dream right?

One thing that was not that important to us initially during the wedding planning process was finding a perfect wedding cake. However, as we started shopping around we quickly realized  that finding the perfect wedding cake was not an easy task and the decision required much more thought. We finally found Fruitilicious Creations and Cakes, a wonderful cake vendor who guided us in creating the perfect wedding cake for our wedding (seen below).  Fruitilicious Creations and Cakes is a brand that offers luxury custom desserts, wedding cakes, dessert & candy table styling, fruit arrangements and personalized favours for all events. When choosing to go with them the most important things were the taste of the cake, pricing, flavour variation, and styling. The owner Sandra was extremely knowledgeable, offered explanations for every question we had and best of all, her cakes are incredibly delicious. Wedding cakes come in various shapes, sizes, flavors and styles so finding the one that fits you best can be overwhelming. 

The Rainbow Striped Sweater

The 90s kid in me opted for this colorful rainbow striped sweater. I was very hesitant to purchase it at first because it was a little too funky for my liking.  I was digging the color combo though and could not resist the awesome price point on it. The wide range of colors found in this rainbow striped sweater also made it very ideal for styling. I chose to pull the light pink and paired the sweater with baby pink heels and a pink bag.
