What Ava Wore : Garnet Hill Kids

For as long as I can remember, my mother has told me that there is nothing sweeter on children than white.
It is crisp + fresh and conveys a sense of innocence.
When I saw this Mexico-inspired embroidered beauty, I just knew it would be adorable on Ava.

What I Wore : Simple

I find no matter how hard you try to put together an outfit that's different, it's often the simplest of looks that have the most impact.

My Melasma + A Giveaway

After having babies, my skin became extra sensitive. (as if it hadn't been sensitive enough before!)
I had to be super careful what type of products I used, never anything with essential oils or lots of fragrance, and the sun was my worse enemy.
We travelled to Florida when my Julian was just under a year and I, like always, used sunscreen and lay out. As much as one can "lay out" while looking after a little one.
In the evenings, I noticed my forehead was darker in some spots than it was in others. As the days progressed, I started to wear a hat outside but still noticed the spots were getting worse.
When we returned to Toronto, it looked almost as though I had a birthmark on my forehead - and no amount of make up would cover it.
this fave photo of Ava and I shows the discolouration (looks almost like bronzer that went on too heavily in spots!)

What Ava Wore : Vacation Wears

There comes a time in every mama's life, fashionista or not, that they lose their luggage space to their little girl.
I take such pleasure in dressing Ava, my own outfit is always secondary, most especially when we're travelling.
Our luggage was overflowing with dresses in every colour (one for each evening's dinner - sick I know it) and of course, a different swimsuit for each day. 
After all, her clothing is smaller and thus takes far less room. how's that for enabling?

What I Wore : Baby Blues

I have the blues today.
And not just the post-vacation wish I was still on the beach kind.

Monday, April 13, 2015


When Isabella was born, I never thought I could ever again experience a love like that.
And then, three and a half years later, Julian came to us.
Words could never do the feelings justice.
I was enthralled, consumed, amazed and utterly, hopelessly in love with him.
Everyone noticed.
Especially my mother in law.
I was crazy about the boy.

Varadero : A Glimpse

The flavours of Cuba are many, and photos often don't do it justice.
As I continue to weed through the many photos we snapped along the way, here are just a few that capture the essence of what turned out to be a perfect family vacation.
And by perfect I mean, no one got sick, sunburnt or bored. The weather couldn't have been better. And the kids couldn't have been happier.
Life is good.
