I just love when colours have pretty names.  I would have described the Nepali by TDM Design scarf I’m wearing as purple and lime green, but they so much more eloquently describe it as African Violet and Tendershoot.


Nepali by TDM Design works with women in Nepal to hand craft all of their beautiful scarves using the most luxurious fabrics.  Not only do they create gorgeous pieces, but they also provide their team in Nepal with above average compensation, access to healthcare and full scholarships for their children to attend school.  It feels so wonderful to support an organization that strives to make a difference and better the world we live in.


Nepali by TDM Design has offered all of you 25% off their gorgeous scarves with the code CRAZYSTYLELOVE!

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!



Pinky and the Rain

Rain Shoes: Mel via Little Burgundy. Coat: Frenchi via Nordstrom (old). Shirt: BCBG. Jeans: H&M. Belt: Wilfred. Handbag: Marc by Marc Jacobs. Headband: Nordstrom. Rings: Coach, Gorjana. Bracelets: Kate Spade, BCBG. Umbrella: Zara.


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!
