Back to school mayhem is among us! As the last of my brood heads off to school tomorrow, I can say I am feeling anxious but also excited for the wonderful new experiences they will encounter. Although it won’t be a day without tears, for both Bryan and I, we do love watching as each child meets their teacher, makes a new friend and comes home with stories about their first day.

To start this series off, I reached out to Wildcraft Care, a gorgeous skin care brand, and asked them a few questions, which you can see the answers to below. They also offered my readers a free sample of their Make Up Remover, all you need to do is visit wildcraftcare.ca and use the code...

One of my favourite summer essentials is undoubtedly the white pant. This is a staple in my wardrobe, and one I find extremely versatile for wearing with both casual and more formal outfits. White pants pair well with so many different looks – from bold, vibrant colours to classic, dark hued tops. While ideal for summer, I also find them appealing during transitional seasons, and with Fall just around the corner, I encourage you to try a few of my most-loved looks! After all, it won’t be long before we are back to wearing dark denim and cozy sweaters.

This summer we have been spoiled with plenty of hot and humid days. It is inevitable that we tend to be spending our free time at the pool, on the cottage dock or lounging by the beach. Of course, we want to look and feel our best while soaking up the last bit of warm weather and I think single piece bathing suits are a great way to achieve that.

As the year progresses and the seasons change, more often than not, so does our style. This is no exception when it comes to handbags, clutches, totes and the like. The hot and humid days of summer mean it’s time for us to pull out our denim shorts and bright coloured tanks to soak up all that summer has to offer. For me, this is also a great time to update my accessories. In the fall and winter I tend to carry around large totes with darker prints and patterns. Chocolate browns, deep tans and staple blacks can all be found in my handbag repertoire. As we head into the middle of summer, take a good look through your bag collection...

Summer is great for spending time outdoors.  Whether it’s by the pool, in the lake, or exploring trails, it’s inevitable that you will be exposed to the sun while trying to keep cool.  We all know how how great it feels to enjoy the summer months but we are also bombarded with facts and statistics about how harmful UV rays can be for our skin. More often than not, we unintentionally tend to put sun safety on the back burner. Here are a few products I have found this summer to ensure I’m well protected while trying to soak up the summer heat.

One of my favourite things about summer is the wonderful fashion styles that come with it. In particular, a classic summer dress is the piece of clothing that I wear the most throughout the warm months. I love that you only need a few simple styles in your closet to showcase a variety of different looks and that it can transition easily from day to evening. I enjoy browsing a few stores in the spring and picking out three or four basic dresses that can be added to my existing wardrobe. I look for styles that I can easily accessorize accordingly with shoes, handbags, scarves, blazers and jewellery.
