Summer Fun at Sherwood Inn Muskoka

Categories: Lifestyle,Travel

Earlier this month, I got to spend three whole weeks with my boyfriend (from Toronto, but currently lives in Florida). This may not sound like a big deal, but to a long distance couple, it’s everything! When he told me he’d never been to Muskoka, I set out to find the perfect place for his first experience in this popular summer destination. It didn’t take me long to set my sights on Sherwood Inn - an authentic Muskoka resort in Port Carling on the edge of Lake Joseph.

Summer Fun at Sherwood Inn Muskoka

Spacious, serene and only 2.5 hours outside of the city made Sherwood Inn an easy choice. They recently celebrated their 75th birthday so I knew we couldn’t go wrong with a well-recognized resort that had been serving both tourists and locals for so many years!

I recently had the pleasure of testing out the new Samsung Galaxy S5 for one week. This trial period just happened to fall during my vacation so I was able to take this beautiful smart phone on the road with me for some summer fun!

One Week with Samsung GALAXY S5

As a lifestyle blogger, it’s important for me to remain active on my social networks no matter where I am – from downtown Toronto all the way to the Rocky Mountains and the Calgary Stampede, the Samsung Galaxy S5 kept me connected to share the adventures with my followers.

Queen’s Plate Flare Lounge Style

Categories: Fashion

I recently had the amazing opportunity to host 20 of my friends for a VIP experience in the FLARE lounge at the 155th Queen’s Plate. Not only did we enjoy the races at Woodbine, but the Hats & Horseshoes party (in its third year) rolled out the red carpet for guests to show off their fashionable finery whilst enjoying live music and Toronto’s best food truck eats.

The Queen’s Plate may be all about the finest horses, but it’s quickly becoming a place to see and be seen. Having attended the event last year as well, I can honestly say that this year was bigger, better and more fashionable than ever – and we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day!

Dress: Anthropologie, Fascinator: David Dunkley, Shoes: Le Chateau, Bag: Brave Leather, Watch and Earrings: Swarovski, Sunglasses: Call It Spring

I wore a stunning royal blue dress with a jeweled neckline, detachable crop top, pleated skirt and pockets from Anthropologie. It was cute and comfortable for the occasion!

The little black dress is a year-round wardrobe staple, but when summer arrives, every gal needs a little white dress. I’ll won’t lie, I already have a few, but when I saw this romantic white Guipure lace shift dress from Toronto-based label Jesse Rowes, I just had to have it.
