I can't tell you how long I've been a fan of Stella McCartney..her designs are fresh, feminine, and romantic. I love her new lingerie line. 

Pictures on your wall...

I always try and think of new and different ways of displaying your favourite pictures. These options are a great way of showing off your prized possessions!

safe and stylish

Gwyneth Paltrow has and always will be stylish and classic. Since I can remember, I have always been attracted to her style. I even copied every single hair cut that she had...a little weird! Above are pictures from her "get" section of her website (link to the right)
p.s. I would include a pop of colour to the outfits. Such as a red clutch or red pumps.

Style icon

Chloe Sevigny, former model and one of the stars of one of my favourite t.v. shows "big love". She has always been my favourite style influencer and style setter. Chloe is ahead of her time and is a starter of trends. She knows what fits well and wears what she loves and not what is trendy.

Beauty is...

...loving your life in all of its ever-changing, thrilling, challenging splendour. Taking time for yourself, testing your limits and surpassing them to achieve goals you never thought possible. It's that little spark that lights up your eyes and dances in your smile, making you gorgeously unique. Greeting the day with laughter and enjoying who you really are - those are the real beauty secrets that never go out of style. According to Marcelle, beauty is, above all else, a state of mind.

The colours of Autumn...

She and Him

Zooey Deschanel is a talented actress, she's beautiful and she can sing!! Her first album named Volume 1 is very good! I suggest listening to "Why do you let me stay here?" and "Sentimental Heart". 


When I was growing up my favourite animal was a Unicorn. Little did I know at the time, that a Unicorn is a fictional creature. I still like the look of a unicorn for its fairy tale quality.

Hello, are you in there?

I've started to collect vintage maps. I also just got a vintage globe that Im thinking of adding to a new collection. Oh no!!
This is an inexpensive way to display a monthly calendar. I would put it in the kitchen. I also really like the antique file cabinet.

Pretty in Pink

Why not?!

What a great way to organize your shoes. Why shouldn't they be out in the open? Shoes are an art on their own. They look beautiful in these antique display cases. Now I just need to continue my collection!

Elizabeth Peyton at the New Museum

Maybe one day...

I wish I could afford clothes and shoes from Loeffler Randall. I can't get over how beautiful and romantic all their clothes are. I've been following Jessie Randall since her apartment was featured in Domino magazine in their first year. She's a great inspiration.


These mitts from Kate Spade are so cute! I love them! They are a little out of my budget ($95!) But, it does make you feel better knowing that some of the proceeds go to women for women international. They help women in war-torn regions as they rebuild their lives, families and communities.

Address File

I've discovered a really cool website by a Vancouver mother who makes paper goods that are environmentally aware. I love the address file. It has been sold out forever, but the other items on her website are to die for. You can tell so much time and energy has been put into every single item.
