Obviously, tigers are all the rage. They are everywhere from clothing, to jewelery, to home accessories! For a quick { inexpensive } fix I picked up this Zara Tiger-Print Blouse that I am in love with. And, if you’re up for spending a bit more, you could always splurge on an iconic Kenzo Tiger Embroidery Sweatshirt { well actually you probably can’t because they are eternally sold out ! } Or, for something in between, be inspired by the above. xx

OK, well, not quite yet. But, it is already September and I can’t believe how quickly this summer flew by. With the last long weekend of l’été behind us (did y’all have a good one?) we can start to look forward to a beautiful autumn!

atlas assortment no.10

It feels like it’s been a while! I am just home from an exciting/exhausting week in Vegas for work, and looking forward to a nice relaxing Sunday afternoon. I was able to spend yesterday getting pedi’s, shopping, and dining @ Grand Electric with my sisters which was such a lovely treat! Gosh, I have also been on a bit of a shopping streak lately so better to just browse and window-shop atlas assortments for me right now ; )

that’s one lovely blog


As I mentioned the other day, the lovely Yasmin of the Hermit Homewares blog nominated me for a One Lovely Blog Award! How amazingly exciting & flattering – eep! Her beautiful blog is very inspiring and filled with beautiful houseware goodies that I am sure everyone will enjoy takeing a peek at it. So, now it’s my turn to keep up the tradition. The Award Rules are as follows;

*Thank the person/people who nominated you and link back to them in your post.
*Share seven possibly unknown things about yourself.
*Nominate up to fifteen or so bloggers you admire.
*Contact the chosen bloggers to let them know and link back to them.

Random Facts about Me:
01. I am absolutely terrified of things that fly, including moths, butterflies, dragonflies, birds etc…
02. My favorite food is hummus; on crackers, potato chips, tortilla chips, a spoon, what ever.
03. I love Excel. If a list needs to be made, if anything needs to be organized… Excel!
04. I believe my little Pug Buddha is the world’s cutest dog. He went blind 2.5 years ago and he is still so brave (while still being incredibly stubborn).
05. I was a vegetarian for about 16 years until recently { in December } I decided to scrap that idea and now chicken and steak are my favs.
06. I love stripes. Seriously, most of my closet looks the same to the untrained eye. Der says all of my striped shirts look identical – and I will probably bring home another one within the next month – but to me they are all unique ; )
07. I love surprising ppl with little notes and gifts. In the mail or in person. Just something small to make someone smile!

Blogs I Love: (In no particular order!)
01. Black Eiffel – My go to for music inspiration, amongst other things. Be sure to check out Rachel’s Music Monday post, when else, every Monday!
02. Smitten Kitchen – FOOD! Delish recipes dreamed up in a 42 square foot circa-1935 half-galley kitchen. I love the photography on this delightful foodie blog.
03. The Alternative Wife – Ethereal inspiration. Think pastels, pink, and lace all with a hazy glow.
04. Emma Dime – I am obsessed with the design, layout, and everything of Emma’s blog. So gorgeous, and always inspirational. I think she loves font as much as I do to!
05. Odessa May Society – Crushin’ hard on this beautiful blog with inspired housewares, décor, design, and a hit of fashion every now and then.
06. Pennyweight – Fashion, décor, music, you name it!
07. Lark & Linen – fellow Torontonian, Jacqueline Clarke, of Lark & Linen is always a go-to.
08. The Reno Project(s) – looking for home décor advice, look no further!
09. Elephantine – making beautiful jewelry and a beautiful blog.
10. Atlantic-Pacific – If I could have one persons closet… Blair Eadie has impeccable taste and a unique style that I love.

Thanks y’all! xx

atlas assortment no.09

Well, it’s been a while since I’ve posted an atlas assortment hasn’t it! I love my teeny tiny rose gold Bing Bang NYC skull earrings so just ordered the ring set { #1 } and can’t wait for it to arrive { let’s not talk about how I recently formed an addiction to online shopping… } If you frequent my Tumblr you will also note that I am completely obsessed with palm trees lately, who wouldn’t love a palm tree pillow { #5 }. Have a great weekend y’all!

Sometimes its fun to do some online window-shopping don’t you think? While I am trying to save my pennies I can still enjoy browsing online and sharing my finds. The weekend is coming to a close – a busy week lies ahead – and I am trying to rest up a little more to fight this darn cold. I know that I said I would do a movie post, and it probably would have been appropriate since the TIFF is closing up for another year tonight, but I will leave that for later this week, as I will have to get my list in order. Have a lovely week lovies.
