Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving guys!! I hope you had an amazing weekend and if you're in Canada that you are still enjoying it! Ollie and I are on the island visiting friends and family and basically hiding from the rain at the moment. Nothing like a cozy weekend at the parents'!

This year I am so grateful for so much that I can't even put into words. I am grateful for my health, for my friends (new and old), for my family and their health, for all the amazing adventures with Ollie, for all the opportunities I have been given, for all the smiles and laughs and for the people that I share them with. Thank you to all of you for following along on my journey -- I am truly so grateful for it. I hope you have an amazing day and if you don't live in Canada, I hope that you are able to feel the love and gratitude that is shining out of this country today. xoxo

The Countess

 It's the last day of the Giveaway!!!! Seriously, if you haven't entered yet, you need to. These bags are so gorgeous that everyone should have the chance to win one. Also, it's the easiest thing to enter -- all you need to provide is your name, email address and which bag you would like to win.

This is the final look of 3 that I styled and this was definitely the most fun of the bunch. I love the rocker vibe of this clutch with its gold studs on the wrinkled leather. It has a small strap over the bottom that is perfect for putting your hand through, but it also has a removable strap so that you can go hands free. I was able to fit my phone, card holder, powder, lipstick, chapstick and mascara easily inside. You could probably fit a decent sized wallet in there as well but I always just carry my card holder so I didn't give that a try. Either way, it's a good size for an evening out or a day trip where you don't want to lug too much around with you. If you're anything like me and are gravitated towards the rocker-chic style, then you will LOVE this bag.

The Bishop

Happy Friday! I hope you've had an amazing week. This weekend in Canada is the Thanksgiving long weekend and I am so excited to spend it on the island. We spent so much time there during the summer and I'm really missing it at the moment. I'm even more excited because my bestie had a little baby boy and I finally get to see him this weekend! He looks like such a cutie :)

If you haven't been checking out my blog for the past week, you might not realize that I'm in the middle of a huge giveaway! And if you haven't entered yet, make sure that you do! There are only 2 more days to enter and you seriously don't want to miss out on this one. You can see all 3 bags that you get to choose from in this post here, or go straight to the giveaway here.

The bag in these photos (the Bishop Bag) is my personal favorite of the 3 and has now become my everyday bag. It has space for all the daily essential and what I like most about it is that once it's full, it doesn't bulk out and get too big. It stays nice and flat and continues to look sleek. That is so hard to find in a bag and as someone that fits everything she possibly can into a bag -- this means a lot to me. The other great thing about it is that it has a zipper to close it. It is so hard to find a bag with a zipper closure but this one has the goods and I love it! Plus, it's beautiful so really you can't go wrong on this one.

The Marquess

Hi guys! As you may already know, I'm doing an AMAZING giveaway with One Fated Knight to win a handbag from their new fall collection. There are 3 to choose from (which you can find here) and this beauty is one of them. We've also created a lookbook video so that you can see them in action.

I've owned the Marquess handbag (in the Vintage Freesia color) for over a year now and it is the absolute perfect carryall. It fits all your daily essentials and more, with plenty of space for a laptop, tablet, change of shoes and snacks for the day without looking like you are carrying around your entire life. This bag also seems to be the crowd favorite for this giveaway so you must all see how perfect it is too!

Make sure you enter the giveaway before the 11th of October. It's super easy -- all we need is your name, email and to know which bag you would prefer to win. Simple!

70s Style

 I'm so excited to show you guys these photos that I took with the uber talented Christine Pienaar a couple of weeks ago! Christine is usually a wedding and engagement photographer (and a talented one at that) but I swear she was born to be a fashion photographer. I left the shoot wondering if any of the photos could possibly turn out because I looked like such an awkward weirdo posing for her, but then she sent them over and I'm totally blown away! I'm actually still wondering if she did some sort of Photoshop voodoo to make them look this amazing because I don't know how this happened. We shot another set as well and I'll show those ones to you next week. I really hope you guys like them as much as I do!

I'm so happy that the 70s style is back once again and this time with a vengeance. I started out a little timidly and picked up a couple of the boho pieces, but now I'm getting a little more adventurous with my choices. I mean seriously -- how freaking fun is this 70s floral romper? This is maybe one of my favorite pieces that I've worn all year! It was one of those items that I grabbed as a "maybe it looks ok once it's on" extras for in the change room, and I was totally right. This romper completely transforms once it's on the body and is super flattering with its long sleeves and elastic waist. I added a belt for style because I never quite like the look of an elastic waist on myself -- I just feel like a belt is a bit more slimming and beaks up the pattern nicely. What do you guys think? Would you wear something like this?

Also, don't forget to enter my giveaway for a gorgeous One Fated Knight Bag! You can find the post for it HERE. The contest closes on October 11th, so there's only a few days left. Good Luck!! xoxo
