Seduce Me With Cupcakes

IMG_5672-1
So it was Valentine’s Day last weekend. I haven’t really done anything major to celebrate it over the past few years… Sure, there’s always a gift/chocolate/pink/red candy exchange, and I always get a little something for the kiddies… But this year, the hubby and I felt like, you know what!? We should do it big like we used to!!!

Aaaaand then we remembered that we’d rather just wear jeans and drink beer!!!

So, in lieu of a lavish evening of champagne & dancing, we shared a good meal, watched a Canadiens game at a resto-pub (we won too!) and spent a relaxing night at a hotel!

Sure, the place was packed, our room wasn’t ready when we arrived, and my husband somehow managed to cut both of his hands (seriously, both?) unloading our bags from the car (only this guy could be gushing blood within the first five minutes of our date), and sure, he may or may not have snapped at me for laughing at his ridiculous misfortune… But…

It hit me that day, how the things that make me happy have changed pretty dramatically over the past few years…

How, not too long ago, there wasn’t much that could have convinced me to “waste” a night away from the kids on anything other than dressing up, waiting in line in the snow, taking a few shots (a few too many, that is), and dancing the night away…

It also hit me, that it really doesn’t take much to please me anymore… I’m completely thrilled to throw on a super cute & comfy outfit, crack open a few brewskis, share a laugh, and cozy up to the man I love!

I don’t think I could have picked a more perfect piece to wear for our V Day date night than the absolute cutest, comfiest, and most perfectly fitting, “seduce me with cupcakes” tee from the UK based, Feminine Funk!

To compliment it, a gorgeous statement necklace from Addition Elle, and my good old, red satin blazer.

All that, paired with stunningly embellished Parasuco jeans from Addition Elle, my new, and super funky, black patent flatforms from ASOS, I was all set to spend some quality time with the mister!

So seduce me with cupcakes!!! No need for diamonds or pearls… Come at me with inexplicably bleeding hands and give me a foot rub! (Haha!) And woo me with confections… Because at the end of the day, it’s those little things – life’s simple pleasures (minus the blood) that are the sweetest ones of all!!!

A Bad Btch in Bstrd

It’s been a minute since my last post… Mostly because it’s been too cold to shoot outdoors… But since things aren’t looking up anytime soon with regards to weather for us Montrealers… I decided that a bare-legged minidress was the way to go! That’s right!!! F&@% YOU WINTER!!!

And how does a bad B accessorize a minidress at -36ºC? (That’s -32.8ºF for my American friends.) Why, with a fab blazer by Nicolette Mason for Modcloth, heart shaped sunnies (I see you, Valentine’s Day!), a little LV, and the absolute most beautifully delicate and versatile piece of jewelry out there – the infinity chain, from Canadian based, bstrd.com

I mean, this piece is so badass!!! Not only is it crafted out of gorgeous, high end sterling silver and gold vermeil chain, adorned with precious little bobbles of opal and Swarovski crystal, but it can be worn in a multitude of ways to compliment any outfit for any occasion!

I tried out a a few different styling options with my infinity chain, and I honestly really loved how all of them worked out!

It looks so perfect worn as a full on body chain!

It makes a really pretty necklace, worn either short…

Or long!

But I’ve got to say, though… My favourite way to wear it is across my body like a beautiful jewelled sash!

The fact that this piece is so dainty, and tasteful, yet so edgy and bold at the same time is what really makes me swoon.

Black is the New Red

Black is the New Red

Well… Could it get any better? Valentine’s Day on a Friday night!!! Whether you’re spending the evening by your sweetheart’s side or going to a fabulous V-Day singles party, you need the perfect dress!

Traditionally, red is the go-to color to celebrate love and romance; it’s sultry and seductive and definitely gets the point across; but classic black will never go out of style and is always a sexy option too. That’s why I’ve decided to go with my favorite little black dress (or LBD for those of you who love your acronyms) to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year.

This gorgeous frock from Michel Antoni Collection is both sexy and elegant all at once. Its tasteful cut combined with the pizzazz of sequins and cold shoulder detail spice things up just enough make it the perfect mix of class and provocativeness. In this dress, paired with my favorite gold pumps, I’m all set to enjoy a fantastic evening reminding my hubby why he fell in love with me!

Once again, as I mentioned in my earlier post, Happy Valentine’s Day to all! And one more thing… Whether you’re in love, whether you’re single or your heart has been broken, somebody loves you and you are never alone.
