I have neglected my eyes for a really really long time.  I wore glasses when I was younger, wore the same pair for way too long, lost them, and then never replaced them.  Somehow I figured squinting was a much better solution than making an eye appointment.  Well, thanks to the lovely people at Iris Eyewear, I am happy to say, I can see!

I now have not only a pair of glasses, but also a pair of SPY prescription sunnies!  My SPY sunnies are their new Happy Lens glasses.  These glasses let in the good rays and , have an uplifting effect on mood, and also block out the bad rays.  I absolutely love them!  I mean, who doesn’t want to add a bit more happy to their day?  Check out this video {here} to see how they work.

I was so impressed with all the information I received in how to better take care of not only my eyes, but my daughter’s too.  Diet obviously plays a huge roll, but so does our eyewear.  My biggest “Ah-Ha” moment came from this tip….

Cheap sunnies usually offer no UV protection.  When you wear sunglasses with no UV protection you are doing more harm to your eyes than if you were to wear no sunglasses at all.  When you put the glasses on, your eyes will adjust to the darker tint.  This means your pupils dilate and let in even more {harmful} light.  So really you are destroying your eyes with those cheap and cheerful specs.  Yikes, right?

One of my favorite things about my job is when I get an up close and personal look at a collection I truly love.  Local Vancouver designer, Nicole Bridger, has been a favorite of mine since she opened her flagship store on 4th Avenue in the heart of Kitsilano.  Nicole’s line is for women who want to look chic and stylish but also wish to keep sustainability in mind.

This season, she has teamed up with Vancouver contemporary artist, Zoe Pawlak for the most lovely wearable art I’ve ever seen.  With Zoe’s use of colour and prints, and Nicole’s ability to create soft, feminine, timeless pieces; it was quite obviously a match made in fashion heaven.

The Nicole Bridger pieces I own in my own wardrobe are soft, comfortable, and versatile.  Her amazing jersey fabrics allowed me to wear them during and now after my pregnancy.  I can’t wait to add some of these amazing items to my closet.


Party Femme

June is looking like it is going to be a fairly social month for me.  With the planning of a party and out of town friends and family coming to visit, I can’t help but go into hostess mode.  My evenings have been spent going down the rabbit hole that is Pinterest looking for inspiration.  For a family fete {with a femme flare}, I love lots of yummy food, pretty blooms, sweet treats, tea and coffee {in pretty cups of course}, cute paper plates {for easy clean up}, some champers, and a bit of fun decor.


Trending in My Closet

My Spring wardrobe inspiration. {*some of these exact items are in my wardrobe, while others are similar}

With this recent switch over to warmer weather, I’ve been editing my closet, adding in some new pieces and falling in love with some old favorites all over again.  For Spring I’ve been loving classic items worn together.  Currently I’m on repeat with a black dress, a denim jacket, a white sweater, and a whole bunch of fabulous accessories.  I’ve infused a bit of colour with some of my jewelry, my mirrored Ray Ban’s, and of course bright, happy polish.  You really can’t go wrong with the classics.  They work for my lifestyle and I feel great in them.  What have been your go-to’s for Spring?
