Fabulous Finds Friday plus an Ottawa Event!

We made it! Another work week under the belt – NOW GO ENJOY YOUR WEEKEND! But before you go, here are a few beauty products that I have been lusting after. Let me know if you have tried any!

If you are in the Ottawa area, this weekend is an exciting one. Saturday marks the inauguration of Nuit Blanche in the city! I can’t wait to attend some of the exhibits and I am so pleased that Ottawa has jumped on board with this fun event! Even if you aren’t an art buff – it is a lot of fun to roam the streets and take in the excitement. The festival begins at 6:22 pm Saturday September 22 and will conclude at 4:23 am Sunday September 23.  For more information visit: http://nuitblancheottawa.ca/
I hope to run into some of you at Nuit Blanche Ottawa – probably in the wee hours of the morning! Have a great weekend!

Oh and one more thing – how incredible is this bag.

The Smoking Loafers Arrived!

Tuesday's Outfit
I received my new leopard print smoking loafers in the mail last night. They are perfect – exactly what I was hoping for and they fit like a glove… or a sock?
This is how I wore them today. Hope you like it!
Stay tuned for another product review tomorrow!

Birthday Outfit

Birthday Outfit
Last night a few of my closest friends and I went for dinner at Zen Kitchen in Ottawa to celebrate my birthday. The food and drinks were amazing and the conversation was equally so – as usual. If you are looking to try something a little different I would highly recommend dining at Zen Kitchen. The restaurant offers a fully vegan menu and a 4 course tasting menu with an optional wine pairing, both of which N and I did. We will definitely be going back again soon – maybe we will see some of you there?
In other birthday news, my friends and N spoiled me with the best birthday gifts. I received a wonderful print of a photograph I’ve admired for years (from N), a beautiful new pair of bow/heart earrings, a tribal gold necklace, a bottle of pinot noir, and balloons! I feel so fortunate – thanks again to all of you!
