A sunny day and I am smiling! Each year the invitation comes for my family to visit the Island. To visit and catch-up. To get away from the city, the noise, and just do nothing. Plus, I have also been dying to wear this adorable Eugenia Kim toque.The weather is gorgeous. The leaves are changing colours and so am I. This weekend I am letting loose the fun with these silver stacked Prada sho[...]

Define comfort. Define casual. We all think differently when it comes to style. It is so personal yet so visible to everyone.When I plan onto spend a rainy day downtown, I book a cozy suite and only pack the essentials. My over-oversized Balenciaga sweater is the newest addition to my fall wardrobe and first into my tote. It looks rustic but is very soft. The silk scarf collar is so light[...]

Speed. Love That Feeling.

The attitude is real. Slinking in the cool morning amongst a field of supercars is powerful. It feels amazing! To run my hand over the smooth curves of a Lamborghini or to lean against a Rolls Royce and adjust my Valentino cap, feels like something I could do every day.Infiltrating the paparazzi was easy this morning. This Kappa reissue had tongues wagging - so old school but also so new s[...]

The day seemed nice enough. Sun peeking through the clouds. Birds singing on my terrace. I looked for comfort as I dressed for the day. But the sky had other plans and so now I am inside, waiting out the rain.This Celine sweater is as soft as my kitten and the same smoky colour as her fur. Cashmere is my fall go-to and the extra long sleeves and effortless way it hangs on my body makes i[...]

There are days when waiting around shouldn't be an option. How many times have you been told 'weigh your options?' Whatever that means. I like to make a list of my goals and think on them as I move through the days, week, months of my life.My Dad likes to have me come into the office with him on the weekends. I will learn so much he says. Think about your future, he says. This will all be [...]

On others, sailing in the harbour is such a rush with the wind in my hair and the spray [...]

Wear me it said. Ignore the heat and the blazing sunshine. It is cool inside so why not?And so began t[...]

He said ‘Let’s go away for the weekend. Not just anywhere but to somewhere. Let me surprise you.'Somewhere without the luxuries of home. Somewhere without Instagram. Wait! Is there somewhere without Instagram…really. I know what he means as I pulled-out my Prada Messenger Backpack. I can fit just enough in here to get me through a couple of days. Will we take the helicopter to the Islan[...]
