Aloha loves,

I know it's been a hot minute since I've last posted- but good things come in due time. 

I'm currently embracing the UV in Maui. Hawaii has always been a "must-see" to me, and it truly doesn't disappoint. It took two planes and a day to get here, plus a few time zones- but it was all worth it. 

Maui fever has got a hold on me and I'm feeling pretty melancholy about returning back home in a couple of days. Here are just a few of my pics that somewhat encompass all that Kona and Maui have to offer. 


Plus, I tried surfing for the first time today and it wasn't exactly what Blue Crush promised- but hell, it's a check off of my mental bucketlist.

From Mamas to Mamas with ME to WE

Hello Darlings,

       I hope everyone is having warmer and spring-ier days than I am. It's practically still winter in Canada! But, thanks to ME to WE, I can finally get inspired and excited for Spring! Their new, as well as Mother's Day themed essentials, are at the top of my list for Spring 2015.

      Their new campaign, Mamas to Mamas, is inspired by their collaborations with the Mamas of Kenya. 

     These pieces are 'one of a kind' because so much love and detail is gone into every which one. Below are some great ideas from the campaign that allow you to feel even better about celebrating with your Mama.


Specials thanks to Lindsey Coulter from ME to WE!

Hello Lovelies,

I have some amazing news to share with you. TLC is back! Not that they've ever really disappeared, but the twosome, Chilli and T-Boz, have come together to create history once more.


The remaining members of TLC are kick-starting their own album, for the fans- by the fans, is the message that they're sharing with us. This echos the same message that FanMail, their third studio album, represented in 1999. FanMail, was also the last album that Left Eye, Lisa Lopes, was present to see before her death in April 2002... Just months before their final album 3D was released in November 2002.


Personally, I think this kick-starter album is amazing because it involves the fans so much, and truly reminds the listener of the success, fun, and talent that TLC resonates. It definately makes you feel the TLC love, and once I heard about the kick-starter - I couldnt wait to participate!

Hello Hello,
I hope everyone's December beginnings are going swell. I know these winter days sometimes get us down, so I have a lovely treat to brighten our days.

I was looking for some wonderfully cool, comfy, and winter proof soles for the blizzardous Canadian weather, not to mention- a great deal for a girl with a budget. And, what I found was better than ever!


Cougar boots which are not only winter approved, but they are super stylish and affordable! These boots retail for over $100 CAN in the mall and department store, but the awesome folks at DSW (Designer Shoe Warehouse), in association with Town Shoes, have got them priced at an awesome $69.99! Plus the FREE shipping and easy returns aren't too shabby either!

Click the pick to take you to DSW's website, and find yourself a treat!

Hunger Games: Katniss Fashion

Hello All,

I hope these winter days and nights aren't treating you too chilly. I happen to love the briskness of the winter air. As the winter days come and go, I was thinking that Miss Katniss Everdeen, and her stylists, know a thing or two about dressing for the winter months.
They have this amazing ability to layer different textures and mediums of clothing and accessories together, and I happen to think that these looks are not only tough enough for Panem but will also suffice for our harsh Canadian winters.

Inspiration look #1:

This cowl number it simply divine, and screams easy-breezy! You could easily pop it over a jacket like Katniss for a casual look, or even brooch it up with a nice dazzler for a chic night out like this Carmen MG Collection Leaf Brooch from The Shopping Channel.

Simple but chic- it doesn't get any better than that. Lover's of Katniss' cowl can with the click of a mouse grab their own cowl from the lovely artisans of ETSY.com . Some of my favorite cowls are hand knitted by the artists, so it's also a great one of a kind number because it's tough to mimic a knit or find and evenly dyed spool of yarn.

Katy Perry in Toronto

Hello Darlings,
This Saturday night I had the pleasure of attending Miss Katy Perry's Prismatic World Tour at Toronto's ACC. From the costumes to the giant inflatable tacos, Miss Perry did it all, and most importantly she did it fantastically well!
From her Teenage Dream tour and biopic, I had so many expectations... They were very unfair, but Katy showed me. 

Enjoy the pics and tell me what you think!

xoxo, Brit

Hello All,
I hope your weekend is going well, the weather here in Toronto has been extremely dreamy! On Thursday June 19th, the Free The Children organizations held a Me to We event at the Toronto Front Street STAPLES unveiling their new partnership with Staples and ACCO Brands to revolutionize back -to- school shopping.

 “For the first time ever, students and parents across Canada have the power to make a difference with their back-to-school purchases and help thousands of children in Latin America, Africa and Asia receive access to education. Me to We, in partnership with Staples and ACCO Brands, launched its first line of eco- friendly school supplies with an impact. Each product purchased gives a life- changing gift directly to a child or family in a Free The Children community overseas, so they are free to learn without battling against hunger, thirst, disease and financial restraints. Together with hundreds of students; Free The Children co- founder Marc Kielburger; Me to We CEO, Roxanne Joyal; VP of Merchandising at Staples, Pete Gibel; and a surprise celebrity appearance from JRDN; Me to We will officially launch its eco-friendly line of school supplies at Staples’ Front Street location in Toronto. The line is now available for purchase exclusively at Staples locations across Canada or online at www.staples.ca/metowe


Back- to- school never sounded so good! Let's check out the fantastically cool merchandise!!!
