Happy Valentine’s Day! Do you have any fun or romantic plans for tonight? Every year, Justin makes me a delicious Valentine’s dinner (since he’s the cook in the family). Restaurants typically offer limited menus with inflated prices on Valentine’s Day, so Justin and I usually do a pre- or post-Valentine’s dinner at a restaurant on the weekend instead.
These photos were taken last weekend after the big snow storm. Friday was a snow day for me, as it was for many others in the Greater Toronto Area. I live in downtown Toronto but work in a suburb 30 minutes away, so driving to work in the morning was out of the question. We spent the day watching the chaos on the streets below from the warmth of our apartment. We had a good chuckle watching several people actually skiing down the streets of the city, definitely a sight you don’t see everyday.
I hope you and your sweetheart have a wonderful day together. To all the single ladies (and gents), I hope you are doing something to spoil yourself today!

I think Mother Nature has her seasons confused. Spring is supposed to be rainy, not Fall! Toronto had several rainy days last week, a weekend of non-stop showers, and now an upcoming full week of rain in the forecast. I’m thinking all of this rain is the perfect excuse to go shopping for a cute umbrella and some new wellies!

Before last winter, I hated fur (both faux and real). Oh boy, was I naive. I’m now slightly obsessed with faux fur, and I would wear it year round if I could. It’s so warm and cozy, and really takes any outfit up a notch. I especially love fur collars, scarves and vests. I’ve been eyeing this black vest from Banana Republic for a few weeks on their website, and can’t wait to try it on in-store. Are you a faux (or real) fur fan?
