Mondays. The thought of them rarely makes anybody happy. Although I love my job, I’m not a stranger to the occasional case of Monday Blues. In the event you are suffering from one right now, I’d thought I’d share some of my current little joys in life. So here are a few things which are sure to put an instant smile on my face, no matter the day of the week: We recently discovered a cute little flower shop just… Read more »

I told you before about my love affair with dresses. To this day, I can happily report that it is still standing strong :)  Especially on my more girly days (I understand how the mere thought of me having non girly days might baffle you… ;) ), I can get all giddy by DRESSing up (you heard me, Mr. Stinson).  Who cares if it’s just a day at the office/stroll around town/trip to the supermarket?

The things one does to help others… :) But all kidding aside, don’t you just love these kinds of initiatives? Fashion victims getting together and swapping/sharing/selling… Read more »

Hope you’ve all enjoyed the Easter fun last weekend! As predicted, my two family brunches resulted in good times, a major chocolate overload and a respectable food baby. But that was not all! In addition, I was surprised with an early birthday gift (hurray for siblings that have birthdays a few weeks before your own :) ) You can imagine my delight when I tore off the wrapping paper to find the object of my latest fashion crush: the Essentiel… Read more »
