What I Wore- Shorts for Summer

A couple of years ago I would never have considered wearing shorts (not a huge fan of my legs) but there are so many cute choices out there now that I have bitten the bullet the last couple summers and picked up a few.

I am still carrying extra weight after the birth of the twins so I have been carefully picking some comfortable summer pieces to carry me through until I get back to my normal size. I fell in love with these shorts at Mendocino recently and I have been wearing them almost every day. So comfortable and perfect with my plethora of black tops!!!

What is your opinion on shorts??

What I Wore- Flea Market Finds

I have really been working the monochromatic uniform since the littles ones were born but with the weather finally turning a corner in Toronto, I decided to pump up the colour a bit.

I bought this amazing tote at the Junction Flea Market a couple of weekends ago. It was made in Nepal by female artisans at risk of sexual slavery and the importers made sure that they were paid a fair living wage for their products.

Topbox Review- May 2015



It has been a while since I shared what arrived in my monthly Topbox! This month had four products, three of which I LOVE!

Lise Watier Sublimessence High Concertration Age-Defying Serum (available September 2015) – Topbox members are among the first to try this new product. The texture is quite thin and spreads very easily. As soon as I applied it, my skin felt silky silky smooth and still felt amazing the next morning. I will be rationing this product out until I can buy more in September in store!!!

Essie Mini Nail Laquer in “Suite Retreat” - Essie polish is my absolute fave and this purple/blue colour is SO nice. I immediately painted my nails with it (see pic above)

Medusa’s Makeup eyeshadow in “Amulet”- This shadow is super pigmented and goes on very thick which I like in a shadow but the colour is not my style at that moment (I am more into neutrals right now) so I will be passing on to a friend who really digs a dramatic smokey eye.

The FACESHOP Herb Day Cleansing Foam Aloe - This product smells amazing, was super foamy (which I like in a face wash) and left my skin soft and not tight at all. Highly recommend!

Twin Essentials- Three Months Old

It is so hard to believe that almost three month have passed since the Peanut and Meatball were born!
Here are some of my essentials at the moment!
Twin Essentials- Three Months
Mam Pacifiers- We started using these on the recommendation of our night nurse and the twins adore them!  They won’t use any other brands so we have a zillion of these floating around the house.
Aden + Anais swaddles- Our babes love the swaddle! These are the best ever and also serve a million other purposes (nursing cover, blanket, carseat cover)
Ours by Cheryl Hickey 3 -in-1 Hydrating Oil- We have used this since we started a night time routine. The lavender scent is so calming and gentle on the skin.
Grago Little Lounger- The twins have been sleeping in these every night since they came home from the hospital.  They are a perfect safe space for them to sleep in our room.
3 Sprouts Stroller Caddy- these are so adorable and also super convenient to hold all the little things (like pacifiers!) that I want to have close at hand when we are out and about.
Dapple Bottle Wash- Cleans the bottles so well that they squeak! 
Dr Brown’s Bottles- THE BEST BOTTLES. Period. Full stop.
 Huggies Clutch and Clean- A cute, reusable diaper clutch that holds an entire package of wipes, which I need!

Spring Style- Pretty in Blush

Blush, a soft pink, is a really nice alternative to white this spring and I have found some amazing pieces to add a pop to your on-trend neutral wardrobe!

Dress- Maje /Shirt- Iris and Ink/ Flat Sandals- BCBGeneration /Heeled Sandals- Steve Madden /Backpack- Charlotte Russe/Sunglasses- Express

What I Wore- Bird Pants

I picked up these bird patterned pants at the end of last summer and didn’t really break them out again until this week when the weather warmed up (at least temporarily) in Toronto. I love them and they even got the kid seal of approval! The first time I wore them, Wee Man said “Mama, I like your bird pants!”

What I Wore- Stripes and Joggers

These joggers are my first post pregnancy pants purchase and I think I am in love! They are so comfortable and surprisingly versatile! I can wear almost any pair of shoes with them to totally change their look. I think you may be seeing a lot more of them on the blog in the future!
