A Perfect Everyday Table Setting that won’t break the bank.

Rainy summer weekends have the incredible ability to evoke a sense of nostalgia that can’t be ignored. Since leaving Ottawa, and my position with Ottawa Life Magazine as the Home & Design Editor, I’ve been somewhat preoccupied with other things. However, while rummaging through my vintage steamer trunk of decor items, I realized just how…

My Nails Are Ombré, My Hair is Balayage

I haven’t coloured my hair in years because I really can’t stand the look, nor maintenance involved with regrowth. So I decided to go ‘au natural’ for the past several years…until today that is. Since I’m pretty picky when it comes to my hair, I often have trouble finding a stylist that I like. That…

Champagne or Sandwiches?

Every day is a work in progress and despite the fact that I like to view the world through rose coloured glasses, I also get served my fair share of shit sandwiches.

Big Bushy Brows ❤️

To my fellow 90s pencil thin arch advocates, you are likely reluctant to acknowledge that thanks to many celebrities, Bushy Brows are Back…and with a vengeance I might add. For those low maintenance babes with a tweezer aversion…this probably sounds like heaven…unless you aren’t naturally blessed with perfectly shaped, lusciously full brows that is. So…

Shhhh – I’ve Got a Secret

Are you looking for high end designer consignment online including Prada, Gucci, Chanel or Christian Louboutin just to name a few?

Let’s Talk Screen Time and Designer Frames

As a Digital Marketing professional, I obviously spend a fair amount of my time working on my computer or smart phone.  So…when Apple released the new Screen Time App with iOS12 in December, I became acutely aware of just how much time I am spending online. For those of you unaware, the Screen Time App…

The First Date – What to Wear

Alright…it’s mid-November, we’ve been flirting online for about a week now since matching on Bumble, so now it’s time we actually meet. What the hell am I going to wear?! Normally, I don’t stress about this too much, usually it’s a quick coffee date to see if there’s any actual chemistry, but this one was…

Diamonds. Pearls. Feathers and Fringe.

Just in case I haven’t mentioned this already, there are three little words that give me heart palpitations and send shivers down my spine… ‘Made in Italy’. 🇮🇹

To B or Not to B…Botox that is…

Ok, I admit, I look forward to aging about as much as I enjoy a hearty helping of liver and onions!  So I have recently incorporated a few supplements into my diet including: Collagen Peptides Vitamin C Vitamin B12 Vitamin E Apparently as we age, our collagen production dwindles and the signs of aging are…

Au Natural…I Adore You

I love the idea of the “additional hydration” that sports drinks have to offer but do not like all the added sugar, unnecessary levels of sodium and calories. Don’t get me wrong, I am sure it is not terrible if you are burning it off running a marathon but I typically do not burn that…

Kim Ronzoni’s Shrimp Pho

Pho (pronounced “fuh”) is considered the national dish of Vietnam. Typically made with beef or chicken bones that have been simmered a long time with various aromatics to create a rich savoury broth. My Vietnamese-inspired version is a simple and delicious take on this soup and just as comforting and filling. A restaurant quality dish…
