Gala Celebration

9 Apr


I had the pleasure of attending the UFE Gala which celebrates all accountants who have passed their UFE exam and achieved their CA (chartered accountancy). My best friend Lori passed and had asked me to be her plus one! I was honoured! It was such a great night, meeting new people, eating great food and they also had a band perform! It was glamorous to say the least! I honestly wish I had more formal nights to dress up for! They’re so much fun ūüôā

Ps. Are you all loving my extensions? Think I’m going to cut a few inches off, what do you think?

Better early than never…wait

23 Oct


Let me start off by apologizing for my absence. I have been pretty sick for around 2 weeks with a terrible cold which then turned into a throat infection. I completely lost my voice and I have been on the road to recovery and back to being myself! It was fate that my voice came back to me, and I was feeling much better just in time for me to celebrate my birthday yesterday. My birthday is actually in December, and to make quite a long story short – I decided last year, after many years of stressful planning, booking time off, and freezing cold nights waiting in line at a nightclub in the middle of December that I was going to celebrate my birthday away from the holiday season this year. Not only is December a very busy time of the year for myself (and everyone I know), but it’s proven to be a very expensive one as well. My beau’s birthday is on December.4th followed by mine on the 10th, and Christmas is not too far behind after that.

I spent some time searching for the perfect venue to have dinner with some of my closest friends at Local Restaurant & Lounge was the perfect choice. The atmosphere was exactly what I had envisioned with beautiful lighting, classic, clean design, mixed with elements such as a brick wall backdrop, leather seating and dark wooden fixtures. The menu had a great, simple selection that catered to every taste; might I add that the food was absolutely delicious. (J and I had the steak!) Shortly after midnight, the dinner tables are cleared out and made way for a dancefloor. Before our eyes, this restaurant turned into one of the best “clubs” we had ever been to together. The music was amazing, the crowd was eclectic with everyone from young professionals, to your industry folk who drop in for a bottle of grey goose, down to your up and coming 20 somethings who frequent Local on a Saturday night for a good time. It was definitely a birthday to remember and a spot I plan to revisit!

3 wants, 2 needs, 1 lust

14 Jul

Wanting¬†this GORGEOUS fan-style mint jewel necklace from J.Crew. How beautiful would this be with a clean, white-collar¬†shirt? Probably just as beautiful as it would be with a crew neck tee paired with Capri’s and ballet flats. A great statement necklace never goes out of style.

Cabochon Fan Necklace – $150

Julie has been wanting¬†this¬†leather wrap-around bracelet from Alexander Mcqueen. A great, casual piece with its soft black texture¬†paired with a bejeweled skull and buckle detail, however¬†we can’t quite get around the $245 price tag just yet.

Skull Double Wrap Bracelet Р$245

Wanting to pick up the new album from¬†Usher called “Looking 4 Myself”¬†I’ve been loving the songs “Climax” and¬†“Let me See”, and ¬†think he’s only gotten better, and frankly I’ve been wanting a bit more¬† R&B in my library. Can’t go wrong with Usher, right?

Need, need, need this purse from J.Crew. The color, the size and the suede! It is screaming out for me, and I must have this baby

Telegram Suede Mini Satchel – $298

Needing¬†to pick up this ever so cute skater-style ombre¬†skirt from Top Shop. I love that it’s made of a soft, easy material and that I can wear it high waisted!

Pink Ombre Skater Skirt – $38 in CAD, I believe. Not positive

Alas, this is my LUST this week. I have been loving shift dresses lately. I love all the various ways they can be styled, and all of the various prints. Not to mention, how incredibly easy they are to wear. This lovely print comes to us from Tibi. It combines a bright tribal print while still incorporating color blocking with neutral tones. Loving this.

Tibi Jasmine Printed Shift Dress – $315 CAD

What are you wanting, needing and lusting over lately ?

OOTD: Spikes are nice.
