Last year we traveled to the island of Oahu, Hawaii for our babymoon and we had the best experience. The island is so incredibly beautiful and the colours of the island are stunning. We loved the bright blue ocean, deep green mountains and vibrant tropical florals. We also saw several of the most beautiful rainbows we had ever seen in our life. So, it’s safe to say Oahu is a travel destination I would highly recommend.
With winter travel season rolling around once again, I thought I would share our itinerary for the perfect 7 day Hawaiian vacation on the island of Oahu. These are the exact activities and destinations we experienced and loved on our trip. Since I was pregnant at the time of our trip, everything on my itinerary is also pregnancy friendly. The only things I would likely add to the itinerary for the more adventurous (and not pregnant traveler) would be a surfing lesson and tougher hikes.
I hope this itinerary is helpful to you for planning your ultimate Oahu, Hawaii vacation!
I had been looking for the perfect winter coat for a while. Since we live in a cold climate my winter coat collection is quite extensive but most of the coats I own are neutral colours. This year, I wanted to invest in a new jacket and upon seeing this Max Mara dark pink coat I was absolutely obsessed. But with a $3700 price tag, the coat was way more money than I could justify spending on a single item. I scoured the internet trying to find something similar but had no luck.
Then, I was doing a little shopping during my trip to Arizona, I stumbled upon this Ted Baker coat. The colour was exactly what I was looking for and I knew as soon as I eyed it that it was going to be mine. It’s a statement in it’s own right but it also pairs perfectly with the soft pastel tones my wardrobe is mostly made up of.
This dark pink rose hue is certainly having its moment in fashion. In contrast to the light peachy hues that have been in vogue that past few years it’s a welcome change of pace. Rose pink is an optimistic shade that feels more mature than fuchsia but fresher than burgundy. While it’s still less common to find in stores than infamous millennial pink plenty of retailers are designing pieces in this gorgeous hue. Here are a few of my favourite rose pink fashion pieces currently available online:
Hello darlings! I wanted to share a few photos of this adorable holiday bar cart I styled and photographed earlier this month. I planned to just snap a photo for Instagram, but honestly I loved this little holiday set up so much that I thought it deserved to be featured on the blog too. Hope it inspires you with ideas for how to style your own bar carts this season. Merry Christmas!
As a Canadian prairie girl, I know a thing or two about dressing for cold weather. For the majority of the winter, Manitobans are bundled up for frigid temperatures that often dip as low as -40 degrees. While you will quickly learn how many layers are necessary to survive the freezing temperatures, the thing that no one teaches you is how to look cute while staying warm. Today I’m sharing my tips for how to look cute in winter weather.
