wrap me in your arms

Sadly, I've been so invested in so many other things as of lately that I've let my blog suffer a tad. I know I haven't been the best at updating my blog lately - I have a huge amount of posts in queue as proof. I promise I am working on getting them out I just feel so drained and lacking any creativity. I am working on quite a few posts for the next few days so hopefully I'll be able to catchup fairly soon!

This was earlier this month when my best pal Chris and I decided to explore an odd path in Scarberia (aka Scarborough) and stumbled upon this pretty trail! We then picked up Jayson from work and went to my fave ayce Korean bbq Chako!!! It was super delish and it was just such a beautiful day! plus size fashion addition elle toronto canada plus size blogger addition elle chambray high low acid wash skirt pink peter pan collar shirt plus size fashion addition elle toronto canada plus size blogger addition elle chambray high low acid wash skirt pink peter pan collar shirt plus size fashion addition elle toronto canada plus size blogger addition elle chambray high low acid wash skirt pink peter pan collar shirt plus size fashion addition elle toronto canada plus size blogger addition elle chambray high low acid wash skirt pink peter pan collar shirt plus size fashion addition elle toronto canada plus size blogger addition elle chambray high low acid wash skirt pink peter pan collar shirt

SexyPlus Clothing Fall Preview


Earlier this month I was invited to the SexyPlus Clothing Fall Preview Blogger Event by wonderful owner Stefanie Augusteijn! She had a perfect little get together in her Mississauga store. It was so nice seeing all my fellow Toronto blogger babes and a perfect opportunity to get to know all the bloggers I hadn’t had a chance to meet yet! 

I love Stefanie’s outlook on the body positive community – we should all work together! I agree with this attitude 100%, a strong community supports and loves one another.

I hadn’t had a chance to make it out to the store before but, I’m so glad I finally did!!! I was surrounded by lovely Joseph Ribkoff dresses, Tierra Sedgemore Size Sexy tees and a ton of other gorgeous pieces! I fell in love with quite a few dresses and I can’t wait to return with my mum (who had to call Stefanie the day after the event to find some Joseph Ribkoff dresses). 


Stefanie put a lot of work into getting this event together, I was so impressed with all the details and little touches: the adorable pink patio set outside, all the beautiful body positive artwork (be sure to check out the bathroom), the awesome change room including a robe and heels for trying things on and best of all the coolest cake ever - a blogger cake with all the social media logos on it by the incredible Cakestar!!! All the jewelry was made by talented Maryanne of My Beaded Designs!

Photos were taken by the lovely Rebecca Northcott Photography, Peter & Erica (this was the first event I actually didn’t take any photos since I was enjoying myself too much)!

Canadian National Exhibition


I’m a little sad that summer is already over, I’ve been holding onto the last bit of summer for the past two weeks i.e. refusing to switch out my summer clothes with my fall ones and attempting at wearing all my shorts and dresses that I didn’t get to wear in the past 14 days. The Canadian National Exhibit or CNE is always my go to way of finishing off the Summer season! It’s only open from middle of August for about two and a half weeks till September. I had hoped to go more than once but, due to time constraints and other busyness I only got the chance once.

My love for the cne is unreal, I mean how can you say no to the most amazing crazy foods?!?! They’ve dedicated a whole building just for all the amazing foods! This year I tried out the Fran’s Thanksgiving Waffle (which was do delicious), Daytona Wings, and a delicious waffle ice cream! I wanted to try more food but the thanksgiving waffle just filled me up way too much. We then went and made our rounds to the other buildings including; arts and crafts building and my favourite – the shopping building!!!!!! I actually didn’t purchase as much as I normally do, I had to talk myself out of getting a pair of Doc Martens that I totally didn’t need, but really wanted! 

It was the hottest day when we went, we attempted at hanging inside so we wouldn’t melt away all day… didn’t work seeing as we had to leave around 6 since we just started feeling uncomfortably hot. I wore my watermelon dress from New Look as a tank and threw on my favourite ripped denim shorts from Forever21.

Elegant British Brands by Jacques Vert Group Winter 14 Preview

A few weeks ago I was invited to the Elegant British Brands by Jacques Vert Group Winter 14 Preview by the Hudson Bay team! I was super excited to find out that one of the brands they had was Plus Size!

I’d like to introduce you to Windsmoor, a super elegant and beautiful plus size brand under Jacques Vert Group! They showed us a few pieces of their upcoming Winter collection, I fell in love instantly. The pieces are so well structured, made with the best material and are super warm - which is so important when you have to face the harsh realities of Canadian winter! I especially loved the fur coat from Jacques Vert (it was a one size fit all and it fit amazingly) and the beautiful ombre Windsmoor coat, they were both incredibly gorgeous!

The Hudson Bay currently carries Windsmoor (I hadn’t known since it’s actually not currently in the plus size section, it’s in the same area as all the Jacques Vert brands) as well as the other amazing lines; Precis(petite), Minuet(petite), Kaliko, Jacques Vert, Planet, Eastex and Dash!

I cannot wait for this collection to come out in November!! I might just have to treat myself to the ~*gorgeous fur coat*~.

GabiFresh x Swimsuits for All Nala Midkini

A couple weeks ago I went to Sibbald Point with my family for a nice day of BBQ and my fave thing ever ~*~*~*SWIMMING~*~*!!!

We had a super nice day at the beach with all my baby cousins! We went swimming for hours - I was literally in the water for 6 hours. The water was so warm and surprisingly super clean! We then made some insanely delicious bbq and ~smores~!!! It was pretty much the perfect day at the beach!
I was seriously stoked not only because I could ACTUALLY swim (Toronto’s beach is hella dirty and there’s pretty much no way you’d ever catch me in that water), but because I could finalllllllly wear my GabiFresh x Swimsuits for All Nala Midkini!!!! Although it was seriously a huge pain to get, i.e. order got cancelled, which led to all sorts of hell (they charged my credit card and then told me that it was cancelled due to fraudulent activity… ummm what???). Including the fact that to exchange the top part of the bikini I was told I needed to reorder it and ship mine back to then get a refund on what I purchased again… Which wasn’t fair at all seeing as I had gotten it with discount and would have had to pay full price just for one top! Thankfully after this whole dilemma Swimsuits for All was nice enough to honour my order and sent me the correct sized top without a huge amount of hassle.

I’m in love with this swimsuit and although it was a huge pain to finally get it, I was so so happy once I did! This is by far my favourite swimsuit I own, it just fits so perfectly! Gabi who not only is the amazing designer behind this wonderful suit but, my blogger idol!! She’s the whole reason I got into fashion and created my blog in the first place. My love and admiration for her is unreal, and best of all, I finally got the chance to meet her this past Monday while I was at NYFW!!!
