I have a bit of a weird relationship with birthdays in that I love to celebrate (any excuse for champagne), but I don’t really like being the centre of attention. I enjoy attending parties, but it kinds of stresses me out when they are in my honour. So, in order to get the best of both worlds (an epic celebration without any of the stress), my boyfriend and I decided to head to Whistler for the weekend to stay at Fairmont Chateau Whistler.

As a teen, I was obsessed with straightening my hair until it had zero kinks and stuck straight to my head. It was only then that the “LG” Elise could be seen in public. At some point in my later teens this changed and I never did my hair. My mum would make comments saying I should at least brush it, but mascara, brow gel and a subtle variation of the Kim K contour took priority over my hairstyle.
Although I am still taking the initiative to brush my brows into place, I figured it was also time that I did something with my hair. After all, I work in fashion, so shouldn’t I have hair that is at least somewhat fashionable? With this in mind, I teamed up with local Victoria stylist, Renée Lalonde from the newly opened Copper & Ash Collective, to create hair that is actually cool enough to be on a fashion blog. So, without further anecdotes of my past hair endeavours, I am excited to share how Renée turned me into a cool kid by changing my hair. CONTINUE READING!
Ever since attending Eco Fashion Week and learning how to thrift with Myriam (their founder), I have become quite obsessed with consignment shopping and going to Value Village in particular. As a huge store that used to overwhelm me, I now think of Value Village as this wonderful place where I can find special treasures, so long as I have a little bit of time and absolutely no hangover (don’t go there with a hangover).

I used to create quite a bit of wellness content when I was in Bangkok with Courtney Bentley, but since moving back to Canada and away from Courtney’s motivation and support (I’m basically a child), I have struggled to get into a regular routine of eating right and working out. Several months and like a billion pounds gained later, summer is almost here and it’s time to get my butt into gear.
Andrea reached out to me a little while ago and it was almost perfect timing; not only is she the founder of Good Life Juice here on Vancouver Island, but she’s a yoga teacher, practices mindfulness and meditation and is an advocate for healthy living in general. Andrea in my life is just what I need. CONTINUE READING!
I’m surprised that this outfit doesn’t look more ridiculous given that it consists of clogs, jogging pants, a pajama top and denim jacket, but somehow it all kind of works. I’m going to keep this post short because it’s Friday, the sun is shining and it’s a long weekend, so I’m headed out to play. I hope you all have a wonderful day too! CONTINUE READING!
When I was in California a few weeks ago with my sister we made it to the Desert Hills Premium Outlets in Palm Springs. I had heard it was the best, but I wasn’t quite prepared for how epic it was. I walked through the doors and was immediately consumed by a world of great brands and new looks. My sister is quite responsible with her spending and she’s usually the voice of reason when I’m shopping. Thankfully she was with me. Having said that, there was one piece that we saw and she immediately told me I needed. This Helmut Lang printed silk top is my new favourite. CONTINUE READING!
