FALL FASHION

I work in Fashion, so naturally I am drawn to trends, however Fall Fashion doesn’t have to be solely about trends, it should be about style & you can be stylish even if you’re discerning with trends, picking only those which fit your personal style. There is a difference between trends and style. Trends are seasonal and fade over time, especially fads (short lived trends). Style on the other hand is timeless, withstands the test of time, it’s classic, sophisticated, elevated & rich without being pretentious. Style is also very personal, so you should pick and choose what you like…

HOW TO STYLE WINTER BOOTS

I’ve lived in Poland for the first 10 years of my life and then in Canada ever since, yet I still dread the cold of winter! People always assume that because you’ve always been living in a cold part of the world that you should be used to it; I don’t blame them, adapting to any environment is human, but I found other ways of making it work: warm clothes & the right pair of winter boots does the trick! Hence why I decided to show you guys how to style winter boots to keep your look elevated and your…

COZEY LIVING ROOM

Toronto is the land of small spaces! However, after living in this city for a couple of years, you are forced to become creative, think outside of the box and learn how to maximize the space! Ultimately, the key to making it work is finding the right furniture & decorate it so that it looks bigger. I’ve been looking to upgrade my sofa for some time now as the one we owned was outdated and frankly way too big for the small condo we moved into this year. The problem was that I could not find the perfect size white…

CPA CAREER

A couple of weeks ago, Lisa, a teacher at the University of Victoria (and an old friend of mine) reached out to me as she has a couple of students heading down the CPA path and she wanted to introduce them to some individuals in the CPA community. I was thrilled and honoured by this request, not to mention that it got me to travel back in time down memory lane and make me feel young again! I shared a short bio with her and it was met by an overwhelming inflow of questions which were so smart & thoughtful…

ONE TOP TWO OUTFITS

Classic, minimal, versatile, timeless & comfortable, those 5 words perfectly summarize the type of pieces I’m gravitating towards lately. My closet is getting filled with more neutrals, quality pieces & clothes that I can easily mix & match. I love when I can take one item of clothing and create multiple outfits, which is why I partnered with TOBI to show you how you can take one top and easily create two outfits by simply switching out the bottom from a skirt to short! Mixing and matching is a great way to avoid overpacking while you travel. We might not…

ART WALL

We’ve moved right in the middle of the pandemic and like many of you, we’ve been spending a lot more time at home. Aside from getting to know my new co-worker (my husband), this time has made me realize that I haven’t really given my bedroom much love since we moved to Toronto over two years ago. It must be a renter’s mentality: ‘It’s temporary, so I don’t need to put in the effort’. The truth is, our surroundings have such a big impact on our mental health & well being, and it’s important to think of your place as…

MY WORK FROM HOME UNIFORM & WHY IT SHOULD BE YOURS TOO

This is a story about my work from home uniform: why I prefer it over PJs and why you should consider it too! Once upon a time, life has come to a halt and a large amount of people started working from home. At 1st, the idea of getting out of bed a 9am and sinking into our home office chairs with a cup of coffee in hand while wearing PJs seemed like a gift sent from heaven. Now don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love working from home: I’m much more productive (less interruptions and meetings), I can focus…
