I’ve been growing my hair long(er) for the last couple months and I’m ready to cut it. I’ve had it! Was looking through old photos from a Google Search and came across this one from LA.

We went to Disneyland and spent some time in California a couple summers ago, it was the best. Love this American Apparel Dress, miss those yellow glasses.

Get a Haircut and Get a Real Job.

Spent the morning analyzing Facebook analytics for a client campaign then helping another client set up her first WordPress. I love doing both! It’s not a ‘real job’ like the olden days but I’m pretty happy that it IS A REAL JOB in 2015. I love THE INTERNET so much.

Can’t believe 10 years after starting this blog, I’m here and made a career of it. Who KNOWS what kind of jobs there will be 10 years from now. If you are reading this and in school, GET ALL THE SCHOOL YOU CAN so you’re ready to take on the world with great skills.

Get a Haircut and Get a Real Job.

I know I said this already but I’m SO stoked for the weekend and getting back up to the cottage. We’re gonna stay for A WHILE. I’m doing a makeover to my blog AND getting a new computer. I can barely contain my excitement.

HUZZAHHHHHH!

Last week I went to a beautiful event at Malaparte in side the TIFF Bell Lightbox. It’s a great event space that’s bright, with a bar, and theatre screen. I was last there for the Nike Women NTC training sessions earlier this summer.

Media and editors gathered to sip champagne and check out the latest Fall Collection for Thomas Sabo. You might remember a couple posts about Thomas Sabo and my trip to England with the brand a few years ago (see here!).

The brand is originally from Germany and is planning to open 6 more stores in the GTA. I had an opportunity to meet the founder in England in 2012. The Canadian flagship is at Yorkdale Mall.

Thanks Ryan Emberley for this snap. I’m wearing one of my favourite Ted Baker dresses.

They gifted us all with a customized Love Bridge bracelet from the new line. Mine says CASIE. I’m kinda wishing I got something a little more creative or inspiring. Next time.

Thanks Ryan for this snap too. Love it. I saw the balloon, looked at him, and he knew immediately what was about to happen.

After the event I was invited to an intimate dinner with bloggers and editors. We each had little cakes at our table setting and an invite to join the Thomas Sabo Charm Club.

Over the course of the dinner we picked out charms to add to our bracelets. Mine’s been ordered and I’m looking forward to it arriving. Mostly because it will be a huge surprise given I don’t remember what I picked! Doh.

Thanks Faulhaber and Thomas Sabo teams for the invite and gifts. Find Thomas Sabo Canada on Twitter at @ThomasSaboCDN and see all charms and available jewellery at thomassabo.com.

You guys know how much I LOVE my sunnies. I’ve amassed a huge collection over the years. The last 6 months I’ve upped my game and added some of my most stylish pairs EVER from polette Eyewear in France.

To celebrate summer and my partnership, polette has created a discount code FOR YOU!


Up until July 24th you will get a 30% discount off your order with the code: Coconut.

Code is valid on all online catalog except for the Sales category.

One of the greatest things about polette, (aside from the huge selection) is the prices. The company was started by a young entrepreneur with the goal of cutting out the middleman to offer great eyewear at affordable prices.  The team is young, artistic, and fun, which you can see shine through in their advertising.


The polette blog has style advice and cute road trip diaries. Here’s a couple great looks you can find on the site right now: 

  
A few of my fav pairs!

  

Visit  polette.com to make your first purchase and tag me when your order arrives. Love to know what ones you pick! I’m placing an order today too. 😎

Here’s to a great week!

There’s beauty wherever you go! 
Follow me down this path on Twitter/Instagram.

 

Last night I went to see Magic Mike with some girlfriends and it WAS SO GOOD. We screamed our heads off most of the movie and it had me sweatin’ a bit. The VIP theatre experience is totally the way to go.

On my way to the movie I rolled my ankle on some uneven pavement and I’m a bit worried I sprained my ankle. It’s swollen and really hurting. Forcing me to take it easy which, after a couple week of being go-go-go, it’s not the worst thing ever. Might have to get an x-ray today. Cross your fingers for me that it’s not as BAD as it feels!

Wish love from across the internet,

Summer is the perfect time to hit the road with your BFFs and ditch the concrete jungle. I love packing up the car and heading up north, to Montreal, or across the border. I’ve had some pretty epic road trips over the years!

Once a couple friends and I drove to Austin, Texas for SXSW and another time we drove and sang our way to Chicago.  Another one of my favs was a road trip to Montreal, so great in the summer!

There’s always a few things I make sure to stock up on before hitting the road and you can find them all at Shoppers Drug Mart. This is my second post in partnership with Shoppers, your one-stop spot before you hit the open road for a summer road trip. Did someone say snacks?

SUMMER ROAD TRIP ESSENTIALS:

Snacks are KEY to long (or short) road trips! I like having a mixture of salty and sweet. Let me tell you I could down a bag of Orville Redenbacher’s popcorn before leaving the driveway, it’s delicious! This PC dark chocolate will last you from start to finish, and if you don’t eat the whole thing on the car ride you can use this bitter-sweet bar in baking.

I prefer cruising with the windows down, feeling the wind in my hair vs. AC and windows up. However, this means you’re gonna get sweaty, electrolytes in Gatorade will keep you hydrated for the long ride. On that note, pack Lady Speed Stick in your purse, it won’t leave a residue and gives you 48-hour protection.

I also recommend packing some wipes that can be used for cleaning up messy hands, spills, or wiping off makeup. All that’s left to to do now is top up on gas, map your route, put on a playlist, and GO.

Take note, when you visit Shoppers between June 20th – July 17th and spend $10 or more using your Optimum card, you’ll receive a PIN card. Simply enter the PIN code at shoppersdrugmart.ca/summercontest for a chance to win 1 of 5 Prizes of $5,000. Now that’ll make a super sweet road trip! Car upgrade anyone?

Once you’ve stocked up on all the goods you’ll ready to hit the open road. Heading to the cottage? Check out my post on cottage essentials here. For more products and to find your closest SDM, visit shoppersdrugmart.ca/funinthesun. Safe travels!
