Fave Quotes

“Exploration in every corner of the earth has led the brave of heart to discover uncontaminated places of primitive beauty.  Those who undertake such travels must be motivated by something beyond mere curiosity.  Maybe such people understand better than others that thing we call desire.” — From the Napapijri website.

Wild Thang You Make Everything

I bought this wild looking blazer from H&M about 2 months ago and was waiting for a party night to wear it, but then I thought what the heck, why not wear it during the day?  After all, I dress according to mood and it suited me just fine. Btw, it was only $24!

I paired it with a basic black T-shirt, black jeans, boots, and my latest pair of sunglasses from Gant by Michael Bastian.  Check out their website to see gorgeous videos under the “some memories last forever” tab.  Speaking of videos – new vlog at the bottom of this post.  JD xx

This is the Heartbreak Hotel

My friend and I were walking down Queen street and she stopped in front of the gorgeous heritage house across from Trinity Bellwoods Park and said “I’ve NEVER noticed that house.”  I was shocked because she’s lived in the city longer than I have, and I notice it every time I walk by.  Later that day, another friend came across a big storage closet at work and said “I NEVER knew this existed.”  Shocked again, I thought how could this be?

Then came my turn.  The next day I was walking down Queen street and I happened to look above the Hero Burger and noticed an old sign that said Hotel Heartbreak.  I am very familiar with this area and I have NEVER noticed it before!  What a bizarre feeling.  Life is full of funny little surprises.  Does that ever happen to you?  JD

And for those who now have Whitney Houston’s Heartbreak Hotel in their head….hit it!

Ready for Take Off

So I walked into this office yesterday and Julie asked me if I was on my way to work at Air Canada.  I looked in the mirror and she was right!  I looked like a flight attendant (I prefer stewardess).   I admit I was a little lazy this particular morning and putting on a black skirt, white shirt and black blazer was the easiest thing to do.  After all, it is more of a uniform than an outfit.  After work, I left to have dinner with my sister at her place and her boyfriend walked in the door and asked me if I was ready for take off.  I guess wasn’t fooling anyone – the joke was on me.   CM

Princess Hair and Spa

I believe every girl needs a go-to salon/esthetician  near her home, work, and somewhere in between.  It took me a while to peg my top three, but my newest and final third is Princess Hair & Spa at College & Ossington.

It offers full service for your hair and spa needs from hair cuts, to waxing, facial treatments, manicures, and pedicures.  Everything you need to keep you looking and feeling fabulous from the inside out.

The girls who work there are young and friendly, and I especially like it’s modest prices.  This is a fantastic place to go for a girl on a budget.  I like to spread the word when I find something good, and this one is worth spreading.

Check it out at 870 College Street or contact 416 901 9987.  JD

Vintage Silk Shirt

This top is from Reitmans circa 1980 something, from my aunt’s closet.  I paired it with basic leggings, a belt, oxfords, a new camel coloured purse from Cole Haan, and my favourite chapeau by Goorin Bros. Check out my vlog at the bottom if you fancy it.  JD xx
