How to Pack: A Weekend Ski Trip

We just arrived back home from an amazing weekend skiing Whiteface Mountain in Lake Placid, New York. I am always jumping at the chance to get away for a quick ski trip over a long weekend to help break up the long and cold winter months. Our SUV was completely packed full of ski gear…

Winnipeg in the Winter

Wonder Forest has asked me to be a Contributing Writer for their beautiful site. I put together a weekend itinerary for a winter weekend in Winnipeg – check it out here! Photography by Joseph LaLeune

Inner Beauty with The Beauty Chef

Over the past few months I started to suffer from breakouts which appeared more frequently, creating a bumpy texture across my once smooth skin and making me feel self-conscious and hyper aware of my skin at all times. This skin reaction seemed to come out of nowhere, for years my skin had been pretty clear…

Shop this Look: The Black Turtleneck

If you are going to buy one thing this fall, let it be a black turtleneck. There are endless ways that you can style this basic (not boring) piece of clothing. In theory, you should only need one black turtleneck to go with everything, and this is partially true – however knowing this classic look…

Shop this look: Transitioning to Fall

The temperature is starting to drop and I’ve started pulling out my fall sweaters and booties. It feels so good to transition my wardrobe over to include more of my fall staples. I store away seasonal items during the off-season so that when I pull everything out it feels fresh and new again. With the…

How to Pack: Weekend Getaway Fall Edition

Over Labour Day weekend the family and I made the trip to New Brunswick for a wedding of a close friend. We thought we would take advantage of being on the east coast so we packed the weekend full of plans and activities. Knowing the trip would be full of small planes, long drives and…

The Engagement Party

When we first got engaged, we knew we wanted to celebrate with friends and family right away and with our wedding still well over a year away, we couldn’t think of a better time to celebrate than this summer. The venue was an easy pick; we wanted a gathering with friends and family on our…

Wedding Dress Codes. De-Coded.

Each Spring I find myself running through Nordstrom like a crazy person frantically trying to find dresses. Dresses for weddings. Dresses for bridal showers. Dresses for evening summer gatherings. Dresses for dresses. I personally find dress shopping to be stressful enough and then there’s this extra layer of confusion where you have to figure out…

SPF 65

It’s finally summer time and of course we are all so excited to rush outside and soak in some much-needed Vitamin D. My first mistake of summer 2017 was lathering myself in expired sunscreen and then laying by the pool all day roasting in the sun thinking I must be getting the best tan ever….

Serums 101

I keep my skincare routine pretty basic and try to stick to all natural products since it seems to work best for my skin. (I’m pretty much slathered in coconut oil at all times). However, lately I have been looking to step up my game a bit and start experimenting with serums. In an effort…

The Fur Slide

To be honest I wasn’t entirely sold on this trend when the Fenty x Puma slides started appearing on the polished feet of stars like Gigi Hadid and Sofia Richie. However, after seeing these little furballs pop up more and more on social media, I suddenly found myself really wanting a pair. Even just to…

How he asked.

Joe and I recently got engaged during our winter getaway in Barbados. The island is very near and dear to my heart since I’ve spent so much time over the years travelling there for winter holidays. It’s always felt like a home away from home, so to get engaged there on the island felt so comforting…
