Your Shop Girl Takes PEC

A few months ago I heard rumblings of a girls weekend in Prince Edward County that the beautiful and talented Suzanne (otherwise known as Your Shop Girl) was organizing. Similar to that of how some of my favourite relationships have been built in this social media...

Nine West + Isla Pearl = Holiday Lookbook

I am beyond excited and honoured to be an official Nine West #STANDOUT Ambassador and the face (which also comes along with my voice) of their 2017 Holiday Campaign (gasp!). From the moment I got a glimpse of the Holiday line sheet it was love at first sight and I...

Turning 10 Years Old

#STANDOUT: Redefining Style

The Clean Slate Project

Well, I'm not sure it was ever really called a "project" but I think it should be. Remember a few months ago, that night otherwise known as the Isla Pearl x Smithery Style White Party when not only was my home filled with beautiful souls in white consuming copious...

What Are You Ready To Let Go Of?

If you want to live a life you've never lived, you have to do things that you have never done before and that often means going against our subconscious beliefs and breaking them down one by one so that you can start to clear a path in your mind. You know, one that...

Step Into The Life You Want to Be Living

This past weekend I was fortunate enough to lead a room full of women through the first of a yoga workshop series that is all about Stepping Into the Life You Want to Be Living. This workshop was something that I have wanted to create for a long time because quite...

New Year, Fresh Start

I consider September to be the start of a New Year, even more so than January. As an added bonus it doesn't come with all of those lofty resolutions - just a new season, crisp air and a whole 'lotta Pumpkin Spice everything if that is your thing. This is the time of...

Workshop Series: Stepping Into The Life You Want To Be Living

You know all of those things you think about doing, wish you could be doing, and maybe even dream about doing? What if you started to take steps towards making it happen? What if you started to scuff away those self-limiting beliefs and patterns of resistance that are...

Perfectly Imperfect

"The real struggle for women is that we're expected (and sometimes desire) to be perfect, yet we're not allowed to look as if we're looking for it. We want it to just materialize somehow. Everything should be effortless" ~ Brene Brown  So when this Perfectly Imperfect...

Shine The Light On *Giveaway*

Everyone deserves a chance to shine; some of us just need a little help finding our light. I was introduced to Shine The Light On by my friends at Smithery Style one day when I somehow managed to sniff out a t-shirt with the words "Gratitude Over Everything" on it...

White Party: Your Tribe

Despite what one might think, the Isla Pearl x Smithery Style White Party was actually NOT entirely inspired by the famous P. Diddy (Puff, Sean Combes, Puff Daddy, Puffy - you know, all of the above) and his even more famous "Hamptons White Parties" - but was in fact...

White Party: The Clean Slate

About a year ago a picture came across my Instagram feed that caught my attention. I mean, the picture itself was cute, but it was the content that had me hook, line and sinker. It was different than everything else that seemed to fill my feed - it had character, it...

Your Platform, Your Stage, Your Circle of Influence

My professional life was always rooted in "more".  After all, isn't that the focus of all business? more revenue, more profit, more customers, more sales, more reach, more products, more services, more success, more, more, more - right?  So when I started this Blog my...

Finding Your Inner Strength

For anyone out there that practices Yoga you know what I am talking about.  Just hearing the words "arm balance" is enough to send you straight into savasana or wanting to run out of the room!  I would have never considered myself to be a "yogi" but all intents and...

Through The Eyes of Someone Who Admires You

"Try seeing yourself through the eyes of someone who admires you. They get it. They believe in you, leaps and bounds. They aren't connected to your insecurities and negative beliefs about yourself. All they see is your true glory and potential. Become one of your own...
