Throwback Thursday | Belfountain

La familia lo es todo.

After a cold brisk walk to and from work today, I couldn’t help but reminisce about warmer and sunnier memories like our family outing last summer to Belfountain. It was an epic day filled with walking, exploring, and eating cookie dough ice cream. I couldn’t have asked for a better day. I’m definitely counting down the days to this summer – for more family-filled adventures!

Stay tuned. I’ll be posting more family fun updates because I can’t help it, these two make my heart explode!

Botanicals, love, & fashion

This past weekend my family and I took a trip to one of Toronto’s oldest parks: Allan Gardens. This beautiful spot is over 100 years old and features a 16,000 square foot conservatory containing 6 different interconnected greenhouses. If I had to pick my favourite houses in this luscious paradise, I’d have to say the Cactus House and the Palm House have my heart. And since I’ve been trying my green thumb in growing succulents and cacti within our home it was pretty inspiring to me. If you haven’t had the chance to check out this TO landmark, I’d highly recommend it. Not only was it educational, but it was also quite rejuvenating!

PS. If you’re looking for a great summer piece to do city exploration type staycation things in, I love my Wilfred Free Yasmin Dress. It’s the most carefree summer staple. Artizia’s sale is decent, but this sale item was really too good to pass up, marked down from $60 to $35.

Power Suit | Moores

On Monday we wear power suits! Or at least my version of a power suit. Friends, if you’ve been cleaning out your SO’s closet and they have a suit kicking around that they haven’t worn in a while, well then, you’re in luck. The 8th annual Moores Clothing for Men Canadian Suit Drive is in full effect until July 31st. You can donate a suit to this amazing cause to help disadvantaged men and women suit up, gain confidence, and get back into the workforce. Plus, if you donate your gently worn professional attire you will receive 50% off your next purchase of regularly priced retail items. It’s a win-win situation! #SuitDrive.
