Port Perry

Jacket: Buffalo David Bitton || Dress: (ValueVillage) || Hat: Club Monaco || Purse: Chanel || Boots: Yoins ||

My mom and I love taking trips up north to explore and shop in little towns. One of our favourite little towns is Port Perry. About an hour and a half drive from Toronto. Its right by the lake and really is the most adorable little town, with the most quaint and cute shops. Although we love shopping, we really love stocking up on all the yummy pastries and coffee this little town has to offer. As you can see from the two different outfits, I actually made my way up to Port Perry the next day to stock up on some more pastries for this event I was going to. This is yet another forgotten post (like my previous post) that I thought I should still share with you.

Polar Rush


Here are photos from an event that happened back in March that I completely forgot to post. It wasn't until I was going through and deleting old photos that I realized I never posted about this event. My amazing friends who run mountain bike and Mud Hero events decided to put on a winter event called Polar Rush. I never travelled this winter, so I was in the middle of some major winter blues, and I thought this would be an amazing, challenging event to get my butt out of the house. Polar Rush is a 12+ obstacle course through the snow at Horseshoe Resort with a fun little after party. I unfortunately could not bring my camera with me during the course, because it probably would have been destroyed, but here are some before and after photos of the day. The course itself I had no idea how hard it was going to be, I'd never done anything like this before. It was the most challenging thing I've ever done, but all at the same time my sister and I (who came with me) were hysterically laughing though a lot of it. It was so hard, but we had so much fun!!! We will definitely be doing this again last year and we are planning on signing up for more events like this for the summer. 
Of course after the event we had to treat ourselves. I was so excited that Horseshoe Resort had a BeaverTails hut because it is the most Canadian pastry ever, and I sadly had never tried one. They are as delicious as they look, accompanied by the most amazing hot chocolate (with marshmallows) I've ever had. 
After eating dessert first, we hopped on over to the cute chalet where we indulged in some beer and chicken fingers. 
I thought this event was too cute not to share. Sorry for the delay.

23rd Birthday

Yesterday was my 23rd birthday and here are some photos of my day!!!

I would firstly like to thank everyone for all the amazing birthday wishes! You are all so sweet. I'm going to make sure to respond back to everyones comments tonight, I appreciate all of them so much.

My day started off with the usual breakfast in bed, that my parents always make for my siblings and I on our birthdays. I will definitely continue this tradition with my children, because it is always something I look forward to. 

I'm so excited to share with you this amazing chair my mom reupholstered for me. I'm in dire need of an office but, my bedroom will have to work for now. I turned my makeup table into my desk, and I was in need of a chair for my desk, so my mom surprised me with this one. She bought this old chair, which  had brown wood, with some gaudy fabric, and reupholstered and repainted it to look like this!!! The best part is the custom Treats and Treasures logo on the back. She somehow sketched and painted this on. My mother is truly amazing.

My birthday was spent like any other birthday, relaxing with family. The best!

As I started to put together my weekly 'pinspiration' post featuring all of Paula Coop McCrory's Pinterest pins, I suddenly realized I forgot to post one last week!!! I sometimes wonder where my brain disappears to. I decided to make up for it, and add a few more inspirational pins to this weeks 'pinspiration' post. Enjoy!
