    That necklace is so , so gorgeous. I like how you layered it. The t-shirt looks amazing on you, I’m always snatching up those boyfriend t-shirts – best design ever for casual wear. The candles by Dyptique are such a delight, aren’t they ? I think I need to get a few more soon , my candles are nearing their end ! Thank you for the video – you looked beautiful ! ๐Ÿ™‚ x

      WOW! Thank you soooo much! I really appreciate your kind words. I find these videos nerve-wracking, but I’m getting more and more comfortable! I love that necklace! Best $20 find ever! And don’t get me started on those boyfriend tees! LOL! They hide a multitude of sins, and the v-neck one that I’m wearing in the video highlights two of my “better assets” – LOL! As for the candles, they are my absolute favourite (actually tied with Cire Trudon candles) – so fragrant and long-lasting. I just wish they were a tad less expensive!!

        I agree , the candles are on the expensive side. They got people hooked though and they know it ! Lol . That t-shirt does look really good on you. Better yet, my mom always says – you make the clothes looks good , not the other way around ! X

          Haha! Thank you!!! Honestly – Aritzia ships internationally, so you should take advantage! And yes – Dyptique is addictive!! LOL!

    Ahhh…Dyptique candles! love them! However, they are quite expensive over here in Australia, so i normally buy glasshouse. Have you tried their candle? Its packaging is gorgeous as it smells!

    • April 14, 2015 / 9:40 am

      Oh wow! Thank you for suggesting Glasshouse candles! They are beautiful! I love Dyptique, but they are just too expensive for the most part.l I wouldn’t have bought them if Nordstrom wasn’t having that two for one sale!!

      • April 15, 2015 / 6:33 am

        Agreed!! ๐Ÿ˜€ But you are so luck you caught the sale ! Totally jealous ๐Ÿ˜€ haha

        • May 14, 2015 / 7:46 pm

          Awww. I agree. Toronto has an energy though that Ottawa lacks entirely. Plus, you have soooo many cool restaurants, boutiques, neighbourhoods and events!!! I live in Barrhaven too, which reduces my own cool factor by a million. Lol!

          • May 15, 2015 / 7:55 am

            OMG Barrhaven – i remember it there i used ti rehearse around there – The green though – seriously – You have grass . LOL XXXXX no YOU ARE COOL believe me – and whenever in Toronto – let’s meet up or if i go see my fam in ottawa this summer – we should ———- my email is in my info in the little circle thingy – what is that called ? still early – a gravatar – Lol xxxxx Have a great day xxx

            Haha! Definitely Cat! I would love to meet up. I’m in Toronto often enough. I’ll look up your email! Barrhaven isn’t so green anymore. It’s urban sprawl at its finest. Billions of houses have been nuilt in the area over the last ten years. Mowed down a lot of forest, but a lot of farmland left….

          • May 15, 2015 / 9:28 am
