Feathers and Chanel + Thoughts of the past three years of law school

Chanel Jumbo bag feather coat (10 of 10) Chanel Jumbo bag feather coat (6 of 10) I'm wearing a feather jacket from Winners (similar feather jacket here), black dress from Kate Spade New York, glitter booties from Hudson's Bay (similar glitter booties here), and a Chanel Jumbo bag from Luxe Touch Designer Consignment. Yesterday, I had my last law school lecture. It's crazy that law school is coming to an end, and it has been an incredibly challenging but rewarding time. I've forged many relationships with my peers and mentors, that have pushed me to be curious, hard-working and kind. Just yesterday, I learned about a new legal area - artificial intelligence in the employment law context, and one of my peers told me all about Electronic fibre computers and their military applications. Law school is a really cool place. It's easy to get swept up in all the readings, assignments and 100% exams, but for the most part, I'll remember inspiring guest lectures, cross-examining witnesses, making closing statements in a real courtroom and talking about nerdy things at my CIPPIC clinic placement. I am so excited to be done, but it's all starting to get a little bittersweet. I'm moving back to Toronto on April 30, and packing away this segment of my life. My law school journey started with me researching employment law when I found myself in a shady post-journalism-graduate internship. I then studied for the LSAT for a year (and took it three times!), applied to several law schools and agonized over the wait. I applied to Interior Design School, and as I was about to pay my application fee, I got the call from Ottawa U in early summer 2014 and jumped! I went to J. Crew that day and bought two blazers... I've since tripled my collection.

Anniversary weekend at Spa Scandinave Mont Tremblant with Ford Canada

This weekend, we celebrated our 7th anniversary! We went on a winter adventure in Mont Tremblant, and our weekend included a spa day, fine French cuisine, a horse-drawn sleigh ride and getting a little lost in the woods. Luckily, we had a Ford Explorer on loan for the weekend, which made the journey all the more comfortable! Daniel picked up the vehicle in Toronto and drove over to Ottawa so we could start our trip together to Mont-Tremblant. anniversary weekend ford canada (1 of 25) anniversary weekend ford canada (3 of 25)ford explorer (1 of 1) I'm wearing a pink ruffle blouse from Banana Republic, a black faux fur vest, blue skinny jeans, boots from Vince Camuto and a Mackage Mini Rubie bag.

Spa Scandinave Mont-Tremblant

Spa Scandinave Mont Tremblant review We started our adventure with a couples' massage at Spa Scandinave Mont Tremblant. It was incredibly relaxing, and a special treat. Daniel has never had a massage before, so it was really nice to be pampered and share the experience. We also really enjoyed the spa area. I loved how there was complimentary tea and fruit available, and everyone obeyed by the silence rules. At Spa Scandinave Mont Tremblant, it's advised to do the baths cycle, where you start with a hot sauna, plunge into a cold pool and then relax in a hot tub or reading room. At Spa Scandinave, they even had an option where you could dip into the 2C river! I wasn't that brave... I really liked how serene it was, and that it wasn't full of people. Right before we left we snuck some photos by the river, as it was the perfect natural backdrop.

The Ultimate Study Outfit + Adidas Neo Advantage Review

Over the past couple years, I've become obsessed with sneakers! I have a few pairs from Adidas, but have been debating between getting a pair of Stan Smiths vs Superstars. I've found the PERFECT balance between each iconic sneaker - keep reading for my Adidas Neo Advantage Review. adidas neo advantage (2 of 5) adidas neo advantage (5 of 5) I'm wearing a striped breton top, jeans from Zara (similar ripped jeans here), a waterfall trench coat, a Mackage mini Rubie bag and Adidas sneakers c/o DSW Canada. adidas neo advantage (1 of 1) These sneakers feature white leather, perforated details (like the Stan Smiths) and adorable rose gold stripes on the outside, like the Superstar. I love how these are streamlined like the Stan Smith sneakers, but feature the iconic three stripes. And rose gold to boot! This pair is also a steal from DSW Canada! Seriously, don't miss out on this pair! They are practically half the price of a pair of Stan Smith sneakers, and come in rose gold. Need I say more?

Clarins Spring 2017: Skincare review

clarins spring 2017 products (1 of 8) It's currently -9C in Ottawa, and over the past few chilly weeks, I've completely fallen in love with the new Hydra-Essentiel line. Every other day, I use the Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Silky Cream for Normal to Combination skin. This cream is incredibly lightweight but very refreshing. It works great overnight after cleansing the face, but is light enough to wear under makeup as well. I take a pea sized amount with a q-tip and spread it over my face and neck, and my skin feels plump and silky smooth. I've noticed that I no longer have flaky skin around my nose! This product is scented, however I find the scent to be gentle and very lovely! clarins spring 2017 products (2 of 8) About two times a week, I increase the moisture factor with the Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Bi-Phase Serum. I put this on at night under the cream to really quench my dry winter skin. I don't like to use this everyday, as I find it can be too much. A couple of times a week is perfect for me.

Old Town San Diego Travel Guide

One of my favourite excursions during my visit to San Diego was an afternoon in Old Town San Diego. Founded in 1769, it was the first European settlement on the West Coast and included a mission and a fort. You can experience what is was like to live in 1820-1870s, as many buildings are preserved from that era. During that time,…
