Maxi Coat

Today’s post was inspired by my gorgeous mother – she could look glamorous in a paper bag because she carries herself with grace and confidence. I absolutely love when my mom gets dressed up.

Dear Santa…My Wishlist

My favourite part about Christmas is giving gifts, not getting them. This is the truth! The older I get, the more I realize it 🙂 But I also love giving gifts to myself, because sometimes I deserve them ;). I usually treat myself with tickets to the Toronto Symphony Orchestra or a nice dinner out,
