I don't think there's anything that gives me more peace than a clean and organized desk, actually make that a clean and organized anything! This has been my desk situation for the past little while and I've been loving the simplicity of it.

Coffee Date //

Coat: H&M (old, similar) | Shirt: Levis (old, similar) | Jeans: Rag & Bone | Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs | Shoes: Loly In The Sky | Watch: Michael Kors (sold out, similar) | Earrings: Jcrew (sold out, but also loving these!) | Rings: Forever21 (old, similar) | Sunnies: Forever21

I have had this camel blazer/coat for what seems like forever and hardly wore it until as of late. I love re-falling in love with a piece from long ago and seeing it in a whole new light! I'm the type of person that loves getting rid of clothes - clearing out anything I don't wear to make room for new pieces - it makes me feel refreshed. Now looking back on photos I see items I would love again if I still had them ha! Oh well - such is life. Happy Thursday!

My Top Pinners //


Whenever I feel unmotivated or uninspired I always turn to Pinterest to give me a nice jolt of colour, fresh ideas, outlooks etc. There's nothing I love more than relaxing after a long day in the tub with my phone and pinning away! These are the five accounts I have been following and absolutely loving lately. I find sometimes my style and things I love are all over the map so these five accounts perfectly encompass my love of all things feminine, edgy, boho, the list goes on. Check them out! And be sure to follow along with my pinterest HERE

Piperlime Sale Favs //


Let's be honest, who doesn't love a good sale?! I woke up this morning to find that Piperlime was having a major sale - 30% off sale items and 50% off final sale items! I decided to pick my favs from the final sale items (more bang for your buck!). Happy shopping! Oh and PS this whole look would be under $150!!!

I have been so MIA from this blog lately! I've been crazy busy with both Maccs and Cake For Breakfast and when you add being sick and helping my sister plan her wedding into the mix - phew! It feels good to finally put together a little post. Danny and I went downtown yesterday to do some running around, grab some coffee, and take some photos. I love this pink building - the bright walls are so gorgeous and were the perfect backdrop for this new gorgeous lace top from Maccs! This is seriously my new favorite top, it is so stunning and looks amazing with a party skirt. I also wore the black version for my 25th birthday which you can see here. I'm so excited for the upcoming weekend and to take some more photos to share here! Have a wonderful Friday!

Cake For Breakfast Valentines Shoot //


I am so excited to introduce to you not only our new sweet little heart tee but Cake For Breakfast bébé as well! I have been wanting to do children's tees for some time now and thought what better time than Valentines to launch it! Now moms can match their CFB tee with their sweet babes - so adorable! I had so much fun shooting the new tees with these little munchkins (my niece and nephew). It took a lot of bribing and some heart shaped suckers but we did it!

Party Like It's 1925 //

When I first started to plan my big 25th only one idea came to mind - GATSBY! I find the 1920s so whimsical and so easy to get swept away in so I knew the theme would be perfect. I decided to stick with a black and gold colour scheme and basically went from there. I pulled a lot of inspiration from Pinterest - see my inspo board here. I normally get very (I mean very) stressed when planning such events but I stayed super organized and ended up having so much fun putting this together. I hope you enjoy this little glimpse into our speakeasy! ;)
This cake topper from Confetti and Sparkle Party Shop was a must! Cindy was so sweet even sprayed it gold to match the theme! 

This black and gold polka dot cake by Anna Elizabeth Cakes was absolutely STUNNING as the main focus of the dessert table. If you haven't tried sweets from Anna Elizabeth yet, I highly recommend them - so delicious and such sweet packaging! 



Black and white striped popcorn cartons ordered here and filled with Chicago popcorn mix - to die for! 

I took photos of my friends and made them into 1920s wanted posters. They were SO funny and everyone loved theirs. People were wanted for everything from breaking prohibition laws, gambling, and brothel activity ha!! I also got to channel my inner 10 year old while aging and burning the paper ala a grade five school project ;) 

I reused one of our homemade chalkboards from our wedding to fit our 1920s theme. 

Vanilla chai cupcakes from Anna Elizabeth Cakes - these were not only delicious but looked amazing on our dessert table (complete with same polka dot fondant as the cake).

1920s/Great Gatsby themed cookies by The Whisk - such a hit and so yummy! 


I had prints made with quotes from The Great Gatsby or writers from that time and displayed them around the room. This is one of my favorite lines from the movie. PS those lollipops are also vanilla vodka infused.. I know.. find the recipe here!

I created our very own Photo Booth by hanging a sequin tablecloth and curtains - everyone loved this! My sister brought her selfie stick along so needless to say we got some pretty interesting group shots! 


A 1920s inspired bar complete with whiskey, champagne, vintage champagne coups and gorgeous blooms from The Flower Factory. I also taped some champagne coloured balloons cascading up the wall as if champagne bubbles! I found the idea on Pinterest

We had the Great Gatsby playing alongside the bar all night. 










This Ferrero Rocher tower was so beautiful in the centre of the room and was such hit! 




This gold heart print by Kardz Kouture fit in perfectly! 

I picked up some supplies from Michaels and made some Great Gatsby inspired headbands for the girls! 


 Every big milestone deserves gorgeous balloons from Confetti and Sparkle Party Shop!
