Yes, I’m still looking for the perfect ipad case! I was totally in love with the Tory Burch Canvas case the second I saw it! However when I discovered it was no where to be found I started to look elsewhere for the next best thing! I’ve found a lot  of amazing cases along the was! Priced HIGH and low! BUT just recently it was brought to my attention that the TB case is still available in some stores! I’m torn! (end of the world right?) NO!

As of right now I’m debating between the original TB case, the Python Michael Kors, or the Black Core Pretty Marc Jacobs…and the best price! Though I would like one that opens up like a book… but the $48 Marc would match my huge nylon tote… and makeup bag! (I like everything matching when I travel!) Please tell me I’m not the only one! ;)

Okay I need your ihelp!! Which one is your fave??

1. Rebecca Minkoff Leopard $85
2. Marc by Marc Jacobs Patent Leather $180
3. Tory Burch Canvas $135
4. Marc By Marc Black Core Pretty $48
5. Marc Jacobs ipad shoulder bag $607
6. Stella McCartney Shiny Leather dotted $376
7. Michael Kors Python $128

Kick up your heels!

I’m sooooo excited for fall fashion! I think I’ve already mentioned that, and will probably mention it again! I instantly fell in love with this Python dress from Old Navy, it hasn’t hit stores yet but I can already see it hanging in my closet! (Yes I will be calling stores daily,  on second thought ordering online now.) I’ve also included some of my favourites fall accessories, which my bestie Mary from Delightful Bitefuls and I have been drooling over for weeks. Throw in a great pair of boots and an oversized handbag, you’ve got yourself the perfect fall outfit! On a side note: I’m still looking for the perfect cowboy boot, any suggestions?

sparkle is the new black

My head turns every time I see even a little bit of sparkle! You can just imagine how excited I get when I see a full cardigan or dress completely embellished in sequins! Today’s post is all about the amazing-ness of sequins, sparkles, glitter and jewels! My favourite look of all are these nude tones with hints of gold and silver!

monday morning

Happy Monday! It’s raining in Vancouver today! Funny enough, I’m not really upset about it. (I’m not a rain person at all!) But this morning the rain has brought a calmness to the day and has made my mind race with exciting ideas for what’s to come! I thought I would keep it short and sweet today! Maybe you’ll be able to connect with this poster, I sure can!

Hope you have a great Monday!

PS are you on Pinterest yet? I’m fully addicted and love how you easy it is to find inspiring quotes, outfit ideas, recipes and look at pure eye candy! There should be 25 26 many more hours in a day because of pinterest!

2 years

As I mentioned in my last Friday’s post, Troy and I celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary on Monday! Since I actually didn’t get a chance to even do a blog post on Monday, I didn’t get to share some of my favourite moments from our wedding!  I did of course hear back from a lot of you- asking why I didn’t post anything! Soooo it’s still our wedding week, I decided to end the week off right and share some of my favourite moments from our big day! We LOVED the day and had the time of our lives! Plus can I just add, these last two years have been too amazing for words! I love you Troy Hibbs! (Sorry didn’t want to get too musshhhy!) ;)
HAPPY FRIDAY! Enjoy your weekend!! xo

Oh and I must not forget our Wedluxe feature! So fun!

Thank you to everyone that was a part of it!

While flipping through my new fave online magazine Matchbook, I decided it was about time I shared this internet jewel with you! Have you had a chance to flip though their pages yet? Matchbook was just launched January 2011, creating a place for girls to come to find lovely things to let them escape from the whirlwind of a busy day that we can find ourselves entangled in! Graze through the magazine and find the latest fashion trends, the hottest items for your home, travel the globe and learn something new! Most importunely be inspired! They had me on page 1! I think you’ll love it too!

Let me start of with this fun closet checklist that you can print out and fill out for yourself! I had a good laugh check-ing away! More checks for items I have too much of.
I also included some of my  favourite pages from this month’s issue! Click here to escape to the wonderful world of Matchbook.

Enjoy xo

Bangles Bracelets Bangles Bracelets!

I love the stacking arm party trend right now! And I know you already knew that! So I’m just going to keep on going and keep on stacking! I hope you have more then at least 3 bracelets on one of your wrist right now! ;)
Don’t think that they have to be perfectly matched together either. Bring lots of different metals, textures and sizes to your stack! It makes it much more fun and so much easier to shop for! Here are some of my faves at the moment.
Plus a bfrend bracelet always looks extra fabulous on your wrist!

Stack away! xo

2. Max & Chloe Gara Danielle Swirled Love Inspiration Bracelet $200
3. Juicy Couture Embellished Friendship Bracelet $341.
