One of the reasons why I love winter so much is because of the holidays. I love the feeling of winter slowly taking over and everything starting to light up around you. I enjoy going shopping during this time and of course, I love planning dinners with families and close loved ones. Amongst all the planning, the holidays sometimes don’t go as planned and I am left with bills to pay post-holiday season. This happened to me some years back and I was left paying bills for months.
As this is Mikael’s first holiday season, I wanted to prepare ahead of time and set up a budget for holidays. Luckily, I had my PC Financial World Elite Mastercard to get me started. What I love about the card is earning 3X the PC Optimum points and being able to redeem them for PC products. To top it off, the PC points can be redeemed at @loblawson, @Joefresh, and @shoppersdrugmartofficial to name a few.
No matter what weather, a stylish cardigan can always make a statement. I always leave the house wearing a cardigan as I feel my look is incomplete without it. September/October has both been warm and cold so it is still OK to wear light cardigans. One of my go-to looks includes jeans with a tee and a statement cardigan to finalize the look. See below my 3 trendy cardigan looks:
My honeymoon was one of the best vacations I have ever had. We touched 3 continents in 3 weeks and explored so much before starting our journey together. We booked our Honeymoon 4-5 months before the travel and were luckily able to get all the best spots. While it was Sarmad’s idea to explore Asia, I was more fixated on Dubai. So we decided to make a trip to both countries plus made a short visit to Europe’s very own romantic city Paris. This was back in August 2015. Now when I look back, it’s important to me to document the journey on my blog. Let’s have a look at my honeymoon guide and the hotels I stayed at.
Before I was a mom, my daily IG feed consisted of fashion, beauty, and home-related content. From going pregnant to having Mikael, my IG feed now consists of blogger mamas narrating their lifestyle. I am always in search of and following Toronto mama bloggers who continue to inspire me through their beautiful feed. Without further ado, let’s look at some of my favorite Toronto mama bloggers who continue to inspire me every day:
I am always in search of a different type of blouse. As much as I enjoy wearing blouses with frills and layers, I was searching for a blouse that had a fall feel to it. Luckily, I came across this on Uniqlo (you can tell how obsessed I am with their collection) and this found drape mock neck blouse. It definitely is different and so, I matched it with my pleated skirt. The full look is as below.
Honestly guys, there is something about transitioning seasons that gets me hooked on to specific colors. As soon as it gets chilly, I get alerted telling me to dress in dark colors. When I found buckled belt plaid top online two months back, I knew immediately it was perfect for fall! The top can be paired with jeans, leggings or any type of pants and goes amazing with ankle boots.
I am a sucker for white in my outfits! I love adding white in just about anything. In this look, I am going to style white skirt in three ways as I have been loving my white skirt. And I love how it pops out in my outfits. It can be matched with literally any type of shoes and tops. Let’s take a look at it below:

I am missing the month of August as summer left with it and September is starting to get chilly. Nevertheless, fall is one of my favorite seasons so I am excited. My August 2018 favorites were all the new products I bought and tried. Without further ado, let’s look into them below:
I always love a good pair of jeans but what I love more is when I pair jean on jeans. I am just getting back to my pre-pregnancy body but I still have a long way to go. I am currently breastfeeding which makes it hard for me to start gym. I have this big chunk of belly fat that I want to get rid of so I can start wearing my jeans again. Unfortunately, the only pair of jeans that fit me currently is my boyfriend jeans. So I am always pairing these jeans with all types of tops and there is no better pair to match it with than its very own jean top.
