It’s no secret that I love Valentine’s Day. Any holiday that is all about pink and love and chocolate and flowers, has my heart. I love the idea of hosting a Valentine’s (or Galentine’s) Day brunch for your girlfriends, family, group of couples or just for you and your man. Since Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday this year, brunch is the perfect way to celebrate.
I’ve collaborated with the adorable Kaylee from The Blondielocks blog on this Pretty in Pink Valentine’s Day Brunch below. We had so much fun putting this together (and eating all the treats afterwards). I’ve been looking for any excuse to style my new rustic wood dining table. I just moved into a new house and out of everything we bought for the new house, this table is my fav purchase.
Thanks to AG Macarons for the DELICIOUS macarons. If you haven’t stopped by AG Macarons’ 2 Toronto locations you must before VDay! The window displays are so amazing and these macarons with the little hearts on top are so adorable. And thanks to Olivia from Flower Maiden for the beautiful floral arrangements she put together! Flowers always make everything better.
I hope this inspires whatever plans you have for this Valentine’s Day!

Adding a pop of pink today with this dress pattern and these cute new shoes. I really love how transitional this dress it. The navy colouring makes it work in the winter with a nice coat and some tights and since it has short sleeves, I can see wearing it in the summer with a cute pair of sandals.
It’s been an unusually mild winter here in Toronto this year, so I’ve been able to get more wear out of my dresses than I normally would. No complaints here! I also just booked a trip to Costa Rica in March and I can see this being a great dress for wearing out to dinner while on vacay.
Are you heading anywhere warm this winter? What will you be packing?

I always look forward to the launch of the new Dior spring collection! It’s always one of my favourite collections of the whole year. This year’s launch does not disappoint. Beautiful pink shades, floral textures, luminous powders, I love it all!
The collection is called Growing Gardens, which totally describes the collection perfectly. My favourite new product is the illuminating powder. It comes housed in a beautiful compact, and I love the luminous effect it creates on the top of the cheek bones. Not glittery and not too light. It creates a perfect, subtle strobing effect and reflects light beautifully. I also love the two contouring compacts. They work great for sculpting cheeks, adding bronzer and blush.
I’m also loving this new Dior Capture Totale cream. I’ve actually never tried Dior skincare products before, so I was excited to try it. The cream boasts to “unify your skintone from its deepest layers to its surface, leaving skin perfectly tautened and toned while all visible signs of aging – wrinkles, loss of firmness and radiance, and uneven skin tone – are corrected.” I’ve been using it at night and love the cooling effect of the cream. It feels really silky and the smell is delicious.
This is also my first time testing out Dior foundation. I tried the Diorskin ForeverPerfect Makeup, Everlasting Wear, Pore-Refining Effect with SPF 35 + Shine Control in shade 101. It has great coverage and definitely evened out my skintone. I would recommend trying it if you are in the market for a new foundation.

Are there any items you’re looking forward to trying?
Can we also talk about this super cute makeup bag I just found at H&M? Love it!
