Winter warm ups.

I could survive without soda. I could survive without mango juice. I could even survive without coffee. I cannot however, survive without tea. Anyone who knows me, knows I have an unbreakable bond with my teas. Although, I am also the first one to jump at any opportunity to be festive and engage in a holiday or season to the fullest extent, so this can cause an internal dilemma sometimes and the occasional caffeine overload!

Everyone knows that September and October are reserved for Pumpkin Spice flavored beverages and hot apple cider.

Life is just crazy and I know I am not alone in feeling like there are just not enough hours in the day or even enough days in the week. Sometimes, I don’t even know what I am so busy with but I know I am stressed out and feeling run down.

Outfit of the day.


I was actually pretty sad when EXPRESS closed all their Canadian locations earlier this year. However, I am thankful that I can still shop online.

The majority of their website is 40% right now so naturally, I had to jump online and get pointing and clicking! I really don’t know how I have gone this long without owning a fuzzy cardigan. Not to mention one with a hood! The super elegant and roomy Hooded Feather Cover-up is on sale right now for $47.97 (usually $79.90) plus, it has pockets! What more could you ask for from a cozy cardigan?

In my mind, there is no specific season for ripped or distressed jeans. I will rock these babies all year round! These ones are actually jeggings from Continue reading “Outfit of the day.”
