Ready for Spring

Despite what these photos imply (they were taken during a very brief sunny respite), it's been raining non-stop and the weather has seriously been getting me down. S.A.D. is totally real, you guys. I know we're lucky here on the west coast in that we haven't had any snowstorms at all this winter but I'm definitely ready for spring to arrive. To that end, I've already started picking up some new pieces, like this Emma Floral Maxi Dress from Tobi, which I know I'm going to be rocking once it finally starts to warm up.

Noughty To The Rescue Haircare

If you're battling dry and frizzy hair, a new British brand is coming to your rescue with a vegetarian and vegan-friendly formula that's free of silicones, sulphates, petrochemicals, and parabens. And it just so happens to be a little bit "noughty"... ;)

Noughty To The Rescue Moisture Boost Shampoo and Conditioner are formulated with sweet almond oil and sunflower seed extracts to feed thirsty hair and repair split ends.  For some extra TLC, there's also the Intensive Care Leave-In Conditioner, which contains shea butter and argan oil. All three products have a nice natural fragrance that are sure to leave your hair feeling fresh and clean. As a bonus, the packaging is really sleek with its easy-to-squeeze tubes that will look great in your summer (I'm sure I'm not the only one who cares about cute products being visible).

I personally don't have dry hair so this isn't the right set for me but the brand has a range of different lines to address other haircare woes, such as Wave Hello for curly hair and Rise & Shine for everyday shine. Plus, each bottle is only $12.99 CAD at London Drugs, which is a steal for such high quality haircare that's 97% natural to boot!

All Laced Up

I know these lace up sweatshirts and tops have been around for a while now, but this Sophia Lace Up Sweatshirt Dress from Tobi such a fun take on the trend... plus, it has pockets. Can't go wrong with that, am I right?

All Saints Kita Small Backpack

Happy New Year! Sadly, I started off 2018 with the flu (wasn't even awake at midnight) so hopefully that's not an indicator of how this year is going to go... especially since I've got a lot planned like my wedding and honeymoon this Fall. Thankfully I'm not superstitious!

In other news, this All Saints Kita Small Backpack has become my new go-to work bag. You may recall my love for my leather mini backpack from a few years ago so I've been on the lookout for something hands-free for my daily commute. This All Saints backpack was the perfect find because it fits a lot for its size, goes with everything thanks to minimalist design, and the best part -- it's convertible. You can wear it as a slim backpack but you can also change and remove the straps to carry it as a tote.
