Booooo.. Summer is almost over! And we are winding things down into slightly cooler weather. There are going to be cooler days and chilly nights. And before you know it (as all the Halloween decorations are starting to show up!) it will be FALL.

I love fall. Fall for fashion, fall for crisp air. But NOT fall INSTEAD of summer. 

Fall also means my birthday is coming up – yay! Closer to being 30….

 

Happy Thursday lovelies!

All over Pinterest I have been spotting these gorgeous statement necklaces! How about sporting one for your Christmas party/family dinner?

Well my sisters may be slightly different, but they definitely won’t break your bank!

She was recently featured in a local magazine here called Toronto Life (go get your copy today!). And was mentioned on CBC Radio on December 13th!

I have worn and mentioned her work before: here, here, here, here, here, here! (okay..that was a lot!) But she is fabulous, deserving, super duper talented and well we are related!

So go check her out!

Happy Thursday, thanks for reading!

Recently … well few months ago, wonderful ladies at Freddie & Cinnamon decided to collaborate with Nest and gifted us with a piece of jewellery! N did her post recently here and now it is my turn. N’s Sparrow Charm bracelet is super adorable!

I chose the White Pearl Ring because of its size and simplicity. The size was just perfect and I loved how delicate it is, it is a ring that can be worn all the time and I have been wearing mine for the past month and sometimes even on my ring finger.

So please, go check them out! They are amazing and they have tons of other great items!

Hope you all have a fabulous Tuesday!!

Today is that first post of something that we at Nest, were gifted! The wonderful fabulous ladies at Freddie & Cinnamon decided to collaborate with me and M for a piece of jewellery each! We were so lucky to find such wonderful followers who would be interested in allowing us to have one of their pieces to do a blog post about!

I chose the Sparrow Charm  Green Onyx Bracelet because I thought that it was just adorable, and the colours fit right into my bracelet collection!

Plus this tribal top that I scored at Madewell while in NYC, I thought just the right ensemble to add a touch of colour! Please go check them out, they have tons of cute things and were just a pleasure to work with!

Hope you are having a wonderful Tuesday my lovelies!

Dress me up in gold… and send me on my way!

I pin. I pin almost every single day. I love seeing what things other people have pinned, and I actually have found some of the best blogs from pins. I have a style board there, and have been noticing some serious trend. I love gold. I love silver.

I love love love jewellery.

Here were some pins of mine…pretty pictures for me are like a serious drug addiction. Oh Pinterest…where was I before I knew about you.

You had me at turquoise, coral and dots…


Jacket: A Movable Feast, Top: Francesca’s Collection (new!), Jeans:Dish, Necklace: Nicola Chong Jewellery. Nail polish: OPI: Dutch Tulips

I love coral. I love turquoise. I love polka dots.

This outfit was the perfect ensemble for my date night with the mister. Bonus…since my sister is a super rad jewellery designer…this piece was the perfect fit as well!

Her name is Elsa. She is real turquoise in a gorgeous, simple and elegant pattern. Biased…hmmm maybe… but we adore Elsa. She comes in all different colours, and different materials. You can meet her here. She is being sold here in an arrangement of colours and can easily brighten up any outfit, even if you are already quite colourful.

Go check that lovely lady out…you won’t be disappointed!
