Autumn Haul 2016




I’m very excited to share with you my Autumn haul. I’ve been very lucky this year and one of the many lucky things is that I had the opportunity to attend the CITYLINE taping with Dave Lackie.  At the end of the show I won a $500 gift card to Marshalls. I don’t have a Marshalls close to my home so I decided to use the card at Winners. All the items in this Haul are not just from Winners though.  I have a couple of items that I purchased.

I would like to say a huge thank you to CITYLINE and to Tracy Moore and Dave Lackie for this amazing and wonderful opportunity. I’m truly grateful and I’m very blessed to have won. Everything marked with an * has been purchased with the gift card.

I really needed a nice Autumnal Coat and this gift card came at the perfect time. I found the prettiest black coat to match my handbag that my husband kindly bought for my birthday.  In the photo I’m wearing the *Michael Kors black coat which goes with the handbag. I love the coat because it tapers at the waist and I love big collars. It is warm and lined beautifully. I really love the simplicity and elegance of this coat. I’m also wearing  *”Wanna Betta Butt?” jeans by Royalty For Me. These are light and stretchy “slim fit skinny jeans”. What I love about the jeans is that they fit so nicely and feel really comfortable. I really love clothing that feel comfortable so these jeans are perfect.


My *boots are Clarks and these are also from Winners. They zip up at the sides. They are flat, waterproof and super comfortable. They are also lined inside with warm material perfect for Autumnal weather.


I’m madly in love with this *American Eagle mustard/yellow sweater. I absolutely love it and my jeans are *Levi’s Boot Cut. They are super comfortable and I love a good dark blue jean.


My *David Jones purse is super comfortable for everyday and it’s not too big. I love the design inside the purse. It has a floral vintage feel to it. Along with the long handle it also has a chain to give it some edge. I love the stitching on the top flap of the bag. Very vintage, modern and edgy at the same time. Perfect in my opinion.


My light brown boots are ankle boots and have a crisscross design at the top with a zipper at the back. I really like them because they have a bit of a heel which gives me hight and I also love the colour. I also love the design of the upper part of the boot. These boots look really amazing with jeans, tights and a dress and are very comfortable.


I chose two *flannel tops from Winners and I have a huge love for flannel top and flannel anything! Flannel blankets are cozy as well.  The first flannel top is cream with navy blue and a lot of red. The second one is cream, navy blue and red just like the first one but the navy blue is bolder and more pronounced.  I’m also wearing the*”Wanna Betta Butt?” jeans by Royalty For Me and my *Clark booties. 


Here I’m wearing the same jeans and booties but with a lovely cream knitted sweater. I really love the warmth and coziness of this American Eagle Outfitters sweater. I love wearing knitted long sweaters with fitted jeans and also with tights and boots. This sweater is very cozy and warm and perfect for Autumn.


I needed dresses so I bought a *Calvin Klein Black dress that is knee length with lines that cut diagonally. This dress can be dressed up or down. Very classic and simple yet elegant and beautiful. I also bought a *grey sleeveless dress that feels really nice and I love the pleated waist and lines on the dress. I feel this would look lovely layered with a top and nice tights and boots. I love layering in the fall and using different textures and colours. Both of these dresses can be worn in many ways.910


On the weekend my husband bought me the most beautiful scarf that I really wanted from Topshop. It has my favourite Autumnal colours and it feels so soft and warm. I love the red and burnt orange/brown in the scarf. I also fell in love with a coat in Topshop. It’s a mustard/yellow coat and I’m so in love with it. I rarely desire or fall in love with clothing but I’m so so very happy that I’m interested in clothing in a positive way again. Before it use to stress me out but now I’m madly loving textures, colours and fabrics. I’m very happy with all the pieces that I’ve chosen for Autumn. I feel I can mix and match so many pieces together and layer them.


Overall I love clothing that can be worn in many different ways that are simple yet versatile. I love textures, colours and lines and really love the feel of various materials.

I’m very pleased with my Autumn Haul and would love to hear your thoughts in the comments. Thank you so much to CITYLINE , Tracy Moore and Dave Lackie for the amazing Gift Card. My shopping spree was incredible and I’m truly grateful! It is a dream come true! Thank you from my heart!

It’s my 40th Birthday today! Woo hoo!


I would like to say thank you to God for everything he has given me. Life is a gift and I’m grateful to my mother for bringing me in to this world. I’m truly blessed and grateful for everything and for everyone who is in my life. Thank you all for your wonderful support with my blog and with your positive words and encouragement. I’m truly grateful.

Lovely gifts 

Truly grateful for the lovely gifts I received.  I’m sharing these with you not to show off or anything like that. Just wanted to share with you what I kindly received.

Here I have a lovely gift from my husband. He bought me a jean jacket from Forever 21 and some amazing aviator sunglasses. He also bought me beautiful flowers and a Michael Kors purse also a HARVARD Sweater. So happy and very grateful!


Last week the weather was so nice I went shopping at Scarborough Town Centre. I bought two lovely camisoles and a pretty handbag from Forever21. I also bought two quarter length sleeve cotton tops from ZARA and two perfumes. 


I also had my hair highlighted at the salon.


So today is my 40th birthday and I don’t know if you remember the post and video that I made about ’40 things to do before 40′? Well I wasn’t able to complete all the things on my list but I have half of them completed. Would you like me to update the post with the things that I  completed? Let me know. I also want to get back in to my vlogs. I’ve neglected my vlog channel and I really want to work on it more. What are your thoughts?

On Friday I went out with my good friends Leanne and Chris downtown Toronto and I’m really glad I did because I miss them so much and I had so much fun with them. Being a full time mommy I haven’t been able to go out and enjoy my self and It was so nice and really amazing to get out of my routine and catch up on good old times. I have a vlog from our outing coming very soon. We went to the Korean Grill House on Queen Street and it was really great! I’ve never been to a restaurant where you cook your own food so it was a really nice experience. After the restaurant we got some amazing dessert.


Here is a picture of my friend Chris, Leanne and I having fun at the restaurant. img_3407

After dinner we walked toward Spadina to grab some dessert and we spotted this amazing tribute. 3925

KeKou Gelato is  really delicious gelato. So refreshing and I love the flavours! I got Green Tea Whiskey and Mango. I miss it already!  

Here I am with my best friend Leanne. I adore her and she is a sweetheart! I’ve known Leanne for over 20 years and our friendship is truly very special to me.

Love you Leanne! 🙂

I’m truly grateful for all the people in my life including all of you who read my blog and leave me wonderful comments and support me. It means so much to me. Thank you so much! I also want to thank all the people whom follow me on other platforms of social media. It truly means a lot and thank you from my heart!

Thank you to my wonderful friends and family who came over, had cake with me, who left me messages on Facebook, Twitter and IG and on the phone. I love you all!

Thank you all for all your Birthday wishes and love!

I’m truly grateful, very blessed and very happy!

Weekend Fun & Easter Blessings!

blog post banner

Hello! I hope you had a lovely Easter Weekend! I’m very blessed because I get to celebrate two Easters. The Greek Orthodox Easter is May 1st and It’s a blessing to have two celebrations. I always spend Easter with Family and it’s always so lovely. The kids play and paint eggs and we sit and eat together and have a good time. It’s always really special. I’m very grateful that we create beautiful memories especially for the children.

  My Sister-in-law made the prettiest cupcakes!

The writing on my sister-in-laws wall. 

Beautiful table setting.

I posted my OOTD (outfit of the day)  photo on my instagram account. This is what I wore at the family Easter Dinner.  My friend Humara picked out the dress for me. Thank you so much Humara! It’s from American Eagle Outfitters. I love that store! I would buy everything from that store if I could.  A really pretty floral dress and my glasses are from Reitmans, my cardigan is from Walmart, my boots are from Winners and of course the new love in my life Michael Kors handbag that my hubby bought as an early Birthday gift. I haven’t created an outfit of the day since summer and I was inspired by Humara. She is truly amazing at Style and fashion and I admire that about her. What do you think of this outfit? Would you like to see more style and fashion on my blog?

  So after the wonderful dinner my sister-in-law filled our bellies with lovely desserts!

Also this weekend Humara and I went shopping at the Scarborough Town centre and I can’t wait to bring you our VLOG! We vlogged together and it was so much fun to see the new ZARA store. It is huge! There’s a men’s clothing store, women’s and children’s store! I’m putting the vlog together today. I hope to have it up by tomorrow with another post for you. Would you like to subscribe to my VLOG channel? I would love your support.

Here is the lovely Humara and I at the Kastor & Pollux Instalation at the Scarborough Town Centre.  


The Kastor & Pollux Installation offers a lot of places to take creative photos.The installation is a collaboration with ZARA at the Scarborough town centre to offer the community a chance to win a gift card.  I believe they took the installation down but the contest is still open until April. For more information you can have a look at Scarborough Town Centre website. 

Have a read at my blog post for more information if you like.
