Red Carpet: 2015 Cannes Film Festival!

 The Cannes Film Festival is an annual festival held at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès in Cannes, France, which previews new films of all genres, including international documentaries. Since 1946, this film festival has grown to be considered one of the most prestigious and most publicized in the world. 

This year, the festival began on May 13th and it is soon coming to an end on May 24th. To wrap up the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival, I thought I’d share some of my fave looks from the multitude of celebrities that came out to the invitation-only festival.

Think Thursday: Love Makes The Ride Worthwhile!

 

Love is an intense feeling of deep affection. It’s an emotion that should be experienced in all aspects of life…whether in relationships, friendships, families, careers, etc…and it should be experienced often, because when you’re in love, places seem more bright, people more tolerant, and life more pleasurable…so love who you are, love what you do and love who you’re with. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile!

Happy Thursday! ❤️xo 

WishList: Saint Laurent – Sac De Jour!

Like most women, I have a thang for handbags…but one that I’ve been crushing on for a while now is the Saint Laurent Classic Sac De Jour Bag. Just one look at this beauty and I’m sure you would crush on it too. This gorgeous bag features tubular handles, accordion sides, compression strap with tabs, brass feet and embossed Saint Laurent signature. The interior features a central zip compartment, 2 slot pockets, 1 zip pocket and key ring with padlock keys attached with a snap. This Italian-made bag also has suede lining and removable leather encased padlock for added detail. I just love the simplicity yet unique details of this bag, particularly the accordion sides which is why it is part of my must-have accessories WishList. This is definitely a classic that I would love to own in every colour of the rainbow (a girl can dream right?!). Here are some inspirational boards featuring the Saint Laurent Sac De Jour Bag.       (Images via Pinterest)

Talk Tuesday: Do Something For You!

It can be difficult to take some time for oneself because one seems to always focus energy on others, particularly loved ones but regardless of family obligations, a busy schedule, not enough time or other priorities, one must always remember to take some time for oneself. It’s not about being selfish, it’s about taking care of yourself first. Who’s going to do it for you if you don’t, right?! 

Turn the spotlight on you for a change and treat yourself! Have at least 30 mins of ‘me’ time daily, treat yourself to a massage, read a book or enjoy a glass of wine on the patio, as long as you take some time out of your day to do something for you because you deserve it!

Today, do something for you!

Happy Tuesday! ❤️xo

Talk Tuesday: You Are Awesome!

 

No one is perfect but we were all created in a perfect image. Everything that makes us who we are as an individual is special. We are perfectly imperfect. We are beautifully flawed. We are some type of amazing and we are pretty awesome!

Happy Mother’s Day!

 Happy Mother’s Day to all of the wonderful mothers everywhere, to the women who sacrifice so much for their children, to the women who are both mother and father to their children, to the women who give of themselves generously and willingly, to those who are, were and who are mothers to be.  

A special happy mommy’s day to my one and only, my heart, my love, my everything, mama chérie. Je t’aime de tout coeur et j’apprécie tous tes sacrifices, ton support et ta générosité.

God’s Plans Are Better Than Yours!

God’s plans for you are far greater than you can ever imagine, dream or wonder. God’s vision for you is bigger, better and brighter thank you think. He has nothing but the best planned for you. Trust in Him and see it come to fruition.

Think Thursday: Just Love!

 

Let’s take a moment to spread some love around the world, especially now. There are too many things going on across the globe, from natural disasters to violence to abandonment to health scares to poverty to hatred, that we just can’t ignore so if we can do something about it, let’s try. I believe together, we can make a difference so let’s start with something easy and simple but big and impactful…Just Love! 

Tell someone you care about them. Show them love by being there, by listening and by lending a helping hand. Do something special for someone in need. Hug a friend. Compliment a neighbour. All of these actions can go a long way and we never really need a reason to show some love anyway so just do it…Just love!

Happy Thursday! ❤️xo

Olivia Munn In Mary Katrantzou!

  

Olivia Munn was spotted in West Hollywood, California earlier this week in a playful printed Mary Katrantzou romper. I’m not one to rock rompers but this colourful pattern reads easy elegance and fun. She expertly paired her playsuit with a scarlet suede clutch and nude sandals to ensure the focus is kept up top. Her makeup was kept minimal with a pop of berry red lips and her hair slicked back into a loose ponytail to complement her ensemble. She accessorized with a few bronze bangles to complete her look. I’m loving this flirty floral one-piece. Get this look here or for more budget-friendly options here or here.

You Are Something Magical!

  

Did you know that you were born with something magical inside just waiting to come out?! That something magical is a gift from above designed uniquely for you. Everyone has their own magic inside so there is no need to take from someone else’s magic. You will only be cheating yourself out of your own. Instead, look within and bring out that something magical. Let the magic shine through you. You are something magical!

Someday You Will Understand!

  Have you ever wondered about those past moments where things happened a certain way not knowing why at the time only to realize sometime later that it was for your own benefit…well that is God taking control everytime. How amazing it is to know that He has your back. You may be going through a tough situation right now but God will see you through if you let Him and trust in Him. He wants you to have that “ooohhh, I get it now” moment so this may be where God has you right now but the plans He has for you are far greater than you can ever imagine. Someday you will understand. 

Jesus replied, “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.” (‭John‬ ‭13‬:‭7‬ NIV)

Street Style: Denim On Denim !

Denim on denim (or should I say the Canadian Tuxedo), is a stylishly fashionable look that is sure to be rocking the “mode” streets this Spring…I personally love the head to toe denim look. It’s casual yet chic and super comfortable, especially when pairing a chambray shirt (tucked in or out or both) with a relaxed pair of boyfriend jeans (distressed or cuffed). Elongate your legs by wearing a pair of pumps instead of flats and roll up the denim to show a bit of skin (you tease!). Add the right accessories to this combo and you’ve got yourself a desirable outfit. Check out my all-denim inspirational boards that feature some of my favourite looks. Are you feeling this look?
