This is a post that is long over due. Last summer, my mom and I went on a daytrip to Terre Bleu lavender farm in Campbellville, (Milton area) Ontario. I actually first learned about this place at a Facebook conference where the owner was one of the guest speakers. (For curious minds, his topic was his success with Facebook Advertising’s options for small businesses.) Ever since I saw the photos of the lavender farm I was dying to go – and lavender is my mom’s favourite, so it was a no-brainer to take the trip with her.
It’s no secret that I love Stella & Dot (just ask my stylist, Chantal!) so I was pretty stoked when I found out I was receiving an item from their new fall collection… Especially considering I plan on buying most of it ;) – RIP bank account.
The piece I was sent was the Marcell Collar Necklace, which I can safely say I am obsessed with it. I’ve had it for about 5 days now and I’ve worn it for 3/4 (Sunday was a PJ day so it doesn’t count).

I’m a big fan of this year’s Pantone colours, so naturally I was super excited about this guest post by Ashley Thompson! I’ve included some of my favourite items from the site throughout the post that I felt reflected this year’s Pantone colours quite well. So, without further ado, let’s hop to it!
Did you know that colours have annual award ceremonies?
If you didn’t, you don’t need to feel bad, Pantone only started awarding specific colours the prestigious title back in 2000. What you do need to know is that Pantone is essentially the king of colours. They differentiate each hue, shade, and tone, giving every colour imaginable a specific name for creators to use for everything from graphic design to makeup to paint colours.

I found my new favourite blog. It’s become that for two reasons. The first, the name and branding of it are on point. The second, the content and the whole idea behind Unfancy is just brilliant. I’ve seen various concepts and plans for controlling your wardrobe before, but the majority of them honestly seemed like too much effort and unrealistic. I randomly came across Caroline’s blog recently, and her method of the capsule wardrobe seems actually do-able. The more I read about it and dug into the archives I knew I could do this too and make it work for me.
Way more often then I’d like to admit I spend several minutes in the night before, and then again in morning thinking about what I’m going to wear. Heaven forbid if I have a special event – in that case I’ll be thinking about it for days and sometimes weeks at a time and then still struggle the day of. I would sometimes go through 3-4 outfits until I was happy, or ended up wearing the the same thing I wore last week out of frustration.
