That Time I Met Coco Rocha

A few months back I was lucky enough to meet the famous model Coco Rocha, and yes she is as nice in person as she appears! I was invited to a pre meet and greet prior to her book signing at Holt Renfrew. There were only a handful of people in the room so I had a chance to speak to her one on one. She is such a lovely person and so down-to-earth for someone that has had such success in the fashion industry. I was also given a copy of her book, Study of Pose, which is an awesome coffee table book.

Summer Dreaming

{Gladiator Sandals - Stuart Weitzman; Floral Sweater - Wildfox; Shorts - one teaspoon; Bag - Prada; Shoes - All black; Printed jacket - Top Shop}

I don't know about you, but I cannot wait for the warmer weather to come. Which unfortunately for me will still be awhile off out here in Canada. I have been dreaming about wearing florals, shorts and gladiator sandals for months now, and they are all eagerly purchased and waiting in my closet. A few trends I am excited about for summer 2015 include, distressed denim, boyfriend jeans, florals, gladiator sandals to the knee, military green and soft flowy fabrics.
What are you most excited to wear this summer?

Spiralized Fresh Cucumber Salad Recipe

I don't usually post recipes on the blog but this one was so healthy and delicious I had to share. 
Over the past few months I have been trying to eat healthier, eating Vegan at least a few times a week. To help switch things up I purchased a Spiralizer which can turn almost any vegetable into a noodle. I was inspired by a recipe I saw online, made a few adjustments and voila! Super quick and easy. 

1 large seedless cucumber 
1 cup of chopped strawberries
1 ripe avocado, diced  
1 cup of chopped watermelon
1 teaspoon of honey 
1 fresh squeezed lime

1. Cut whole cucumber in half and spiralize (or grate) each half into a bowl 
2. Combine ingredients, whisk together the honey and lime juice and toss over salad

Fausto Puglisi: Holt Renfrew Event

During Toronto Fashion Week I was lucky enough to be invited to meet a new designer, Fausto Puglisi; an up and coming fashion designer hailing from Italy. Holt Renfrew debuted his fashion forward line during Fashion Week and I attended the after party celebrating his entry into the Canadian market place. Fashion professionals, bloggers flocked from all over the city to meet Fausto, so needless to say I felt pretty honoured being invited. Unfortunately, during our short conversation I didn't get a picture with him but I did manage to snap a few throughout the evening.
