Millenial Pink isn’t going away anytime soon. The popularity of San Diego’s Holy Matcha Cafe is a testament that velvet pink benches, marble tables and adorable matcha lattes complete with word art are a perfect combo. On my recent trip to San Diego, we visited the North Park cafe, to test out their matcha lattes and take in the adorable decor.

I accidentally matched the decor in this beautiful nude pink dress from Anthropologie (similar embroidered off the shoulder dress here). For accessories, I wore my Gucci Marmont shoulder bag in nude, a pair of round mirror sunglasses and leather sandals from Clarks.

Since I started working full time, I’ve worked on building out a wardrobe for the office. I’ve focused on pieces that could go from work to blog functions at night, and was curious to test out Lark & Ro, one of Amazon Canada’s house brands. You can only shop Lark & Ro if you’re an Amazon Prime member (but you can get a free 1-month trial here), but since my house is already signed up, there was nothing to lose! I selected this gorgeous forest green Lark & Ro dress, and wanted to share my review on the dress.

This Lark & Ro cap-sleeve midi dress was under $100 CAD, and while the price seemed a bit steep for an online purchase, I was so impressed with the quality. The cut is beautiful, and it fit me perfectly. Plus, it has pockets!… View Full Post

In August, I went to Cirque du Soleil Luzia in Toronto and it was absolutely phenomenal! I know this might come too little too late, but I wanted to write a quick post about the experience, and you can still grab tickets to see the show until October 16!

I wanted to channel the nature and colours of Mexico, so I wore this floral lace dress from Mendocino. I love the unique print and texture of this lace, as well as the bright teal colour. I paired it with my comfy Vince Camuto heels and my new medium Prada Galleria bag. This outfit felt dressy and fun!… View Full Post

Ever since I started training for the Nike Women’s 15K last year, I started tracking my runs to see progress. I usually use my phone on an armband, which I found cumbersome. For Christmas, I got an Apple Watch and was excited to be able to work out phone-free, only to realize to track any GPS, you need your phone there too! I was super excited to have the chance to test drive the new TomTom Spark GPS Fitness watch and share an in-depth review of my experience using it.

As for the fashion of the watch, I like that it’s simple and black. I would have preferred a silicone band to make it more comfortable to wear, but I suspect that as the unit pops out, you could swap bands as well. My main complaint is that the plastic on the back of the unit makes for a hot and sweaty device. I tried loosening the watch a bit but if it’s too lose, I worry it won’t be accurate in its heart rate measurements. I think this has more to do with the shape and design of the watch, and perhaps a method for ventilation would improve the wearability for me on a sweaty run! I find the all black to be really sleek, and in comparison to other GPS run watches out there, the design is incredibly aesthetically pleasing, and I have worn it a few times throughout the day to track my steps. During the day, I like that the time display is always visible, as well as the date. I also like that in a couple buttons, I can access my steps data and heart rate information. I find the navigation and accessibility of the data much simpler than on my Apple Watch.

As for the battery life, I found I could wear this watch for a few days in a row to track steps and a couple little workouts and a run or two without losing power. This is MILES ahead of my Apple Watch, which I need to recharge once a day (especially if I track a workout). I would definitely feel more confident going into a race with the TomTom Spark, because I know my tunes would keep playing, while the device would continue to track my run.
