monday.must: eLiasz and eLLa Violet Edge Necklace

Violet Edge Necklace

Anyone who reads this blog and follows me on Twiter knows that I love Canadian brand eLiasz and eLLa. One of the first brands I wrote about on chic.toronto, eLiasz and eLLa speak to fans who love a bit of an urban twist on their jewellery. All of their pieces are singlehandedly beautiful, edgy, and gloriously colourful.

Their Violet Edge Necklace is this week’s must have item.

(more…) Pear Shaped by Stella Newman

Pear Shaped

PEAR SHAPED by Stella Newman has all the makings of being a good novel but falls short. PEAR SHAPED has a good concept…but is actually quite a “miss” when it comes to literary works. A novel where the protagonist’s behaviour is slightly appalling and set’s women back a few notches, PEAR SHAPED by Stella Newman left me with a sour taste in my mouth.


chic.feature: Q&A with AMIE Founder Fiona Parkhouse + GIVEAWAY

AMIE Skincare

A few weeks ago, I posted about a fabulous new skincare line that really had me raving. AMIE SKINCARE is singlehandedly one of my favourite skincare brands – it’s clean, natural, and efficient.

Lucky for me, I had the ability to have a Q&A with AMIE SKINCARE founder Fiona Parkhouse. Click behind the cut to see….and enter to win a starter kit of AMIE SKINCARE for yourself!


monday.must: Joe Fresh Plaid Blanket Scarfs

This week’s monday.must is …. JOE FRESH’s PLAID BLANKET SCARFS. This is the item to splurge on for the week.

When I saw this plaid scarf on fellow blogger’s TEACH IN FASHION’s blog, I instantly fell in love. This beautiful scarf can be used as a regular scarf, a shawl, or even a sweater. It’s multi-purpose is phenomenal for the low price of $24.00 CAN. An investment piece that will last throughout the many winters to come!

Treat yourself!

monday.must: Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult

Leaving Time Jodi Picoult

I’ve been meaning to change things up on the blog for a bit, which includes adding new features. One I’ve been thinking about for awhile is “Monday Musts” – a weekly post about one specific product (could be a movie, book, piece of clothing, beauty product, etc) that need to be on everyone’s ‘must-have’ lists. These are the products that if you were to treat yourself to one thing each week, these items would be it.

Up first on monday.musts is a book that I’ve been personally waiting for for over 2 years. The item you need to treat yourself to this week is LEAVING TIME by Jodi Picoult.
