back to black


Hi loves! Just a little hair update. If you follow me on Instagram, you've already seen this! It's been SO COLD here it's like impossible for me to shoot outfit photos. Well that coupled with schedule issues. In the meantime, while i was hibernating, I decided to go back to black. I will 100% miss the lighter shades, but right now I'm into the rich, intense black. I used a Garnier Belle Color hair dye (the one with argan oil) in the shade Very Intense Black. I'm also very much into MAC's Heroine lipstick (obsessed, really). It's such a fun shade and perfect for spring and summer.

spring 2015

It is insanely cold in Toronto (read: insanely cold), so I'm escaping with thoughts of Spring. Here's a little inspiration for you.

mostly black


Old Navy coat and pants / H&M shirt and bag / Primark tuque and shoes / MAC's Heroine lipstick

I am currently obsessed with MAC's Heroine lipstick. It's both very bright and very purple, so for now, I can't have too much colour while that's happening. I'm wearing mostly black here because a) you can rarely go wrong with black and b) it's just really easy. I hope you all had a great weekend!

rebel + sin


Happy Valentine's Weekend! I wanted to share my two favourite lipsticks of the moment: Mac's Rebel and Mac's Sin. Rebel has been a go-to of mine for quite some time now. I think it's a universal lipstick colour that will look good on everyone, from the most pale to the darkest brown. I've been a fan for a while. Sin, however, well that's been my little gem of the season. I just got it in December and I've been wearing the hell out it. I first saw the unidentified colour on Pinterest, and I'll admit, I started doing some heavy research. Well research paid off because I found it. If only I had discovered it for the fall! Spring is around the corner, but fall is only a few months away, right!? I'll be switching out these darker shades for bright pinks, reds and oranges pretty soon. What are your favourites?

red + red + red

Hope you all had a great weekend! Keeping it short and sweet today. How cute is this headband! A friend of mine knits them herself and I was super lucky to score a couple. I don't wear read often, but this headband kind of inspired the whole look.

sausage and shrimp jambalaya


I love a good one pot dish, especially one that includes shrimp. Jambalaya isn't something I make on a regular basis, but when I do, I always ask myself why I don't make it more often. It's so easy! And so delicious! I love spicy food so this is right up my alley. Here's an easy to follow recipe from She Knows (also below, click to read more). The whole thing maybe takes 45-50 min top to bottom, but it's so worth it. And here's a recipe on how to make your own Cajun seasoning - definitely necessary for jambalaya!
