New Years Edit

It's December, so naturally I'm already thinking about New Years. And parties. And decorations.

If you're hosting a New Years Eve party this year, try to think outside of the box! Confetti push-pops are a fun alternative to noise makers when the clock strikes midnight. Also a sparkly backdrop (only $10!), paper fans and photo booth props can brighten up the corner of a room and turn it into a fun little element of the night!

I'm helping host my best friend's New Years party this year and while she's taking care of the food, I will be handling the decorations soooooo.....

Top 50 Etsy Gifts

I'm so guilty of being one of those people who get all of their holiday shopping done in November. Blame it on the OCD but I love the detail that goes into thoughtful gifts, and the feeling of having all of your Christmas shopping out of the way waaaaay before December even rolls around is amazing.

I'm also a huge fan of personalized, handmade gifts - I really don't think presents need to be expensive in general, but I do think it's important they hold a certain meaning for the giver and receiver.

I might be a little biased here but Etsy really is the perfect place to buy something with a personal touch for those special people in your life. I've made a round-up of my top 50 gifts on Etsy - from the foodie to the gym rat, I got you covered!

Oktoberfest: O'zapft is!

I'm having a very German October this year, having just got back from Munich's Oktoberfest and then I am heading out to Berlin from London today. Here are a few of my photos from Oktoberfest, plus outfit details and some dirndl picks if you hit up the Wiesn next year!

You know what they say... "Nach der Wiesn ist vor der Wiesn..."

New York Minute

As I write this I'm currently en route back to the UK; a little dot flying somewhere over the Atlantic. I rarely sleep on planes so I figured this is the perfect way to pass the time.

Life has been quite hectic lately, having just come from a trip to Toronto, Philly and New York! I won't be back across the pond until Christmas, so I wanted to share a couple of highlights from this time around.

The Amalfi Coast

Last summer we found ourselves travelling from Milan to Portofino - who would have thought that another Italy trip would come my way just one year later? I'm a very lucky girl! This time around we visited Capri, Positano, Ravello, Amalfi and Rome over the course of eight days.

We had so many incredible experiences - from swimming in the blue grotto (illegally, oops) to attending the Pope's blessing at the Vatican. Grab a cup of tea and a comfy spot cause this is gunna be a long one.

The Algarve

City-hopping the coastline of the western Algarve made for an unforgettable trip. We explored Lagos, Carvoeiro, Quarteira and Vale do Lobo. Standing on the cliffs watching the sun sink into the ocean is truly an experience like no other! The picture below was taken at Ponta da Piedade, the main lookout point in Lagos.

Floridian Fashion

It's no secret I am crazy for summer fashion! Prices in the UK are just so much more expensive than shopping at home in Canada or Florida, so I always go a little crazy come May when I find myself back across the pond. These are all items I've actually purchased and have fallen in love with and a bunch are on sale or super affordable (Hello Forever21!) which makes things that much sweeter.

 4. Iris Skirt   5. Floral Top   6. Slasher Shorts (on sale)  7. Life's A Beach Top

Heaven is Hvar

Heaven is Hvar; a little Dalmatian island an hour's ferry south of Split. It's a maze of cobbled streets and shuttered villas, with every corner being more instagrammable than the next. From the second we arrived we were already planning our trip back -  everything about this place is extraordinary.

Hooked on Ibiza

I am officially hooked on Ibiza. A part of me still simply cannot comprehend that a place like this exists a mere 2.5hr flight away from London. Sometimes I need to pinch myself and realize how lucky I am to be able to experience and explore so many wonderful parts of Europe.

With the season not yet fully in a swing, many big clubs were not open. Don't get me wrong, in the summer months clubs and their epic DJs are all the rage, but for me the Ibiza experience focused on the nascent local food movement, small-scale fashion designers, drinks, drinks and more drinks... and high end beach clubs!

London Lately

With London set to be as hot as Barcelona this weekend (hello 18°C!), I felt inspired to publish a round up of some London outings I've had over the last few weeks. If you're planning a Euro-trip this summer or just have time for a weekend in London, these spots should make the top of your list!

Currently Craving

1. Anything geometric. From accent furniture to terrariums – I’ve been obsessing lately!

2. Rainbow bagels. I can’t decide if I’ll be into this or not, but I do really wanna try one. Anyone fancy a trip to Selfridges?

3. A trip to Ibiza! April come sooner... we're booked and ready for ya.

4. A good new read. I’ve fallen behind in book club but my new resolution is to read at least one good book a month. Use this handy dandy chart to pick a book based on your current mood.

5. A Beni Ourain rug. Because after a year I am still completely obsessed with owning one of these but just can’t bring myself to fork up the bucks. Also, the fact that I’m lusting over a rug vs. handbag must mean I’m growing up, right? 

6. Timberyard cafĂ©. If you’re in London, go there. They serve a mean matcha latte and their pastry selection is heaven – cronuts, blueberry lemon loaf, blondies and more.

Sweet & Cheap Valentine

Valentine's Day is a month away, so time to get crackin' on those pressies! I feel like the best gifts aren't necessarily the most expensive... Thoughtful and personal score pretty high in my book, so swap last year's personalized Nutella trend with this year's spicy Sriracha... or what about creating a hidden message for your sweetheart hidden beneath a thick layer of luxurious chocolate?!

Here are my top sweet and cheap picks for your valentine (or yourself - let's be real, the Lush bath bombs are already on their way to me...)

2. Personalised sriracha - Bow and Drape
4. Bathtub caddy - Etsy
6. Greeting card - Etsy
