Edmonton Devonian Botanic Gardens

The University of Alberta Botanic Gardens (formerly the Devonian Botanic Gardens) had a delayed start this year with our late Edmonton spring. We visited on their second weekend for our 1 year anniversary day date.   While everything was not yet in full bloom,  it was such a lovely place to visit. As you stroll down the pathways and through the gardens it’s beautiful and kind of … tranquil! ** There is some construction happening right now so make sure to plan around when they are working!***   It’s absolutely a plant lovers paradise and a fun date activity to do in Edmonton.

The humidity in the Tropical plant and butterfly show house was a huge highlight on a slightly chilly day. While I am irrationally terrified of butterflies, they are really pretty! The U of A Botanic Gardens is a must see once the flowers are all in full bloom. Look out for date night activities at the gardens or just spend a quiet afternoon there. I can’t wait to go back this summer.

Fashion | Plaid & Stripes – Mixed Prints Made Easy

Happy Tuesday! The weather here has been less than ideal the past couple of weeks. It has snowed the last two weekends, which has put a serious damper on spring outfits. The cold weather has felt more like fall, so naturally my mind goes to plaid as a Canadian cold weather staple.

How to Turn a Spare Bedroom Into a Dream Walk in Closet

If you’re a girl who loves clothes and shoes and has built up a considerable wardrobe there’s no doubt at some point you’ve run into the issue of not enough space for storage! When I fell in love with my little 1940’s bungalow, I had to come to terms with the fact that a standard walk in closet was not in…

5 Spring 2017 Fashion Trends to Shop Now

With the snow finally melted and the temperatures warming up,  it’s officially time to break out the spring clothes! This spring seems to be all about feminine details like ruffles,  bows, florals, and blush pink.  These items are currently in my shopping cart. I can’t wait to bare my shoulders and sport my favorite colour with some of these items on…

Fashion | Hints of Spring

Is it just me… or has black and grey been declared the official colours of winter? Every year at the beginning of winter I say that i’m going to add colour to my winter wardrobe, and by the end of January somehow my closet is dominated by black coats and grey sweaters. Sound familiar?

Fashion | Girly With an Edge

I’m a HUGE fan of tulle skirts. I’m not going to lie, every time I see one,  I am reminded of my 8 year old, birthday party self. When I found this pretty grey/lavender tulle skirt I loved the colour and layers, but wanted to wear it without looking like an 8 year old ballerina. Cue the leather. Pairing a leather coat…
