Happy Birthday Stella

Happy Birthday to our lil' pug princess.
The joy and laughter you have brought us is priceless!

It feels like yesterday that I met you for the first time.

Then we brought you home.

You cuddled your way into our hearts.

And made us fall in love with you


Doggy Holiday

The best thing about being off for the holidays is getting to spend loads of time with Stella, who by the way turns 1 tomorrow. We've snuggled til noon, gone for a ton of great walks and she's made us laugh so hard we cried.


Joyous Feet

I'll admit, I've braved many a Canadian winter with less than adequate boots. Being that this is my first winter with a puppy, I figured I better get prepared for long walks in sub zero temperatures. I am very excited about my new sorels and can't wait to start jumping through the snow with my lil' lion.


White Wedding

My apologies for the delay is posting these pictures. At last, I present to you White Toronto - the prettiest, most wonderful wedding dress boutique in Toronto.

My appointment was beyond perfection and each dress was more beautiful then the next. Monique L'huillier, Reem Acra, Oscar de la Renta and Leila Rose - I got to try them all and had a blast twirling in each one. So I'm sure you're wondering if I said yes to the dress.... I sure did! But I am sorry my dear friends you are going to have to wait until September to find what dress brought forth a floodgate of tears.

Home Sweet Homesense

When you have the patience (and the luck), Homesense is the most wonderful home decor treasure in the city. Lunny and I headed there today to see what we could find and I'll say we did pretty darn well.

A new bed for Stella, so she has a place of her own in our bedroom ($19). I love how it fully matches her colouring.

A set of beautiful zebra photos for above the television unit ($79 each). We've had a huge thing for them ever since getting up close and personal with them in Johannesburg.

A large mixed media art piece for the office ($49). Though Lunny is South Africa, he will always be British at heart.

A turquoise ceramic elephant ($14).

And the coolest find of all, a vintage New York taxi cab that we just had to have! ($29).


Sneak Peak

Here's a sneak peak of my visit to White Toronto - the most beautiful and awesome wedding dress shop in the city. Full post to come.
