Bright Whites

As spring has finely arrive in the city of Toronto I feel the need to bring out my white pants. Yes I have been wanting to wear them all winter and I really should have as winter whites look amazing, I just didn’t have it in me. Well now I do and I have found my inspiration to do so.
As I was spending a little time pinning on one of my favorite sites (I may spend a little to much time on there.) I found some amazing outfits with white pants. One stood out at me,Β as if felt like I could recreate it as I had similar clothing in my closet and looks office appropriate.

This outfit was perfect for me to try and make it my own. Spring style at it finest I think so here is my recreation on how I have style a similar looking piece.

Enjoy!

Last Week

I have been a little MIA these past couple of weeks and I feel that it may be the same this week as well. I always find the holidays not very relaxing and extremely busy. Between picking up last minute gifts, running around from house to houses to see family and cooking a family breakfast on christmas morning I found very little time to myself. I also would not have traded any of it for the joy I had with my family and the time we got to spend together.
To see the smiles on my boys faces when they woke up and got to find out what Santa had brought them for Christmas and the house we spends putting everything together brings so much happiness to me.
And now with the new year just around the corner it will be just as busy with the running around and I’m ready for it!

Wedding day!

I have been a little MIA this past week as I was planning and taking part in my brothers wedding. We spent most of last week finishing up the centerpieces, putting together favors and making sure the wedding was going to go off with a bang and that it did! My brother and his now wife had a amazingly beautiful wedding day. I have very little pictures of the day as my phone was locked up inside the bridal suite for most of the night and by the time I got it, it was time to dance the night away. And yes that is were I spent the rest of the night on the dance floor.
Here are a couple of picture I took before we took off and from the week as we put the deportations together.
I had so much fun planing this wedding and was so happy I could help!!!
Maybe I should take up being a wedding plannner :)!

A Wicked Night Out.

Friday night I went out with some girlfriends yo see the Broadway show Wicked. It was one of the best shows I have see. The writer did an amazing job on the story of the wicked witch of the west. It tied in very well with the movie the wizard of Oz. It was a great job by all. The preformers did a wonderful job and the sung beautifully. It is a for sure must see if you haven’t already!

For my night out I kept it very casual as it was a rush home from work and a rush down town.
Below is my casual night out outfit. It was great to have a girls night out and was a must need but I did miss my boys a bit once I left. πŸ™‚

Monday Morning

Monday morning and back to work. Who really likes Monday mornings, because I can tell you that I don’t. So hard to wake up and wishing I had one more day to somewhat sleep in. Most of all I don’t like the idea that I have 5 days till I get to spend the full day with my boys.
Well it’s back to the office for me and as It not as good as it used to be the count down is on till the weekend. 5 days to go!
Enjoy your Monday!

Weekend Getaway!

I would like to thank some lovely ladies for putting together a bachelorette weekend get away. It was a day at the Scandinave Spa in Blue Mountain where we relaxed and enjoys a much needed massage and some beautiful baths. It was a very relaxing morning.
After or morning at the spa we headed over to the Village where we checked in to the Westin Hotel to clean our selfs up for a nice dinner out. We ate at a delicious restaurant called Copper Blues in the heart of the villages. After dinner we end our night off in our suite with some fun & games, lots of wine spritzers and plenty of great conversations had by all. It was a night of celebration for a beautiful lady I will soon call my “Sister”. It was a wonderful weekend away!

To the spa I wore: Denim top: H&M / Leggings: Walmart / Shoes: True Religion /Scarf: Target Canada

To dinner I wore: Sweater: Winners / Jeans: Forever21 / Boots: Old Navy / Bracelets: Aldo / Necklace: Forever21

Thursday!

Here is Thursdays work wear. I wish I could take better pictures but I’m finding the time quite difficult between juggling two kids, a job and a hobby (blogging) that I’m very interested in.
I would love some time to take some better pictures, but as I am my photographer and model and have two busy body’s around at all time is just not the easiest. I have tried to take some pictures once they have gone to bed it’s just the lighting is not on my side so this is what I have ended up with. I promise I will keep trying and find new ways to work/photograph.
If any one out there is going through the same thing as I am, I would love some ideas on how you balance your life/work/hobby and how you make it work.
