Friday Wine-Down



I can't believe it's the last Friday of August!



I'm heading up north right now and it's really bitter sweet; I'm devastated summer is over, but I'm pretty excited for fall.

I mean, the Pumpkin Spiced Latte is back in TEN DAYS.

Before we are forced to submit to colder weather though, lets embrace this last bit of summer and do the Wine Down! 


Fall Fashion Finds

Ok, not a great way to embrace summer with the Wine Down, but I spent an evening shopping with my parents this week and got some truly beautiful pieces for fall.



All the blouses and the silk dress are by Babaton, one of my favourite brands. the Jeans are Citizens of Humanity, and I am LOVING the fit, and the high rise waist! I love the silk dress, the olive colour is just so perfect for fall, and I'm already envisioning wearing it out for a nice date-night-dinner on the town!


Toronto I love Ya!

This past week I've been back and forth to the city a bunch for all sorts of great activities!

Last weekend I participated in the Goodlife City Chase with three of my friends, an Urban Race and Scavenger Hunt that tests your body, mind and willingness to hold giant snakes...



I'm doing a full post on this tomorrow; be sure to check it out!

Also this week was the Diner en Blanc party in Toronto. There will be a post upcoming about this as well, but here's a sneak peek of our gorgeous table setting!



Favourite Instagrams of August

I really can't believe that summer is drawing to an end! I love looking back at all my photos from the month at captured memories. I'll be relying on them when it's -20C outside...

Here are some of my favourite posts I made to my Instagram account in August.




For good measure, here are some of the gorgeous photos by people I follow that blew me away this month! (click on them to launch their accounts)









What I'm Drinking

When you're partying in an all white dress, surrounded by other people in all white, with all white table cloths and decorations... there's only one thing you can drink safely to enjoy the occasion.

Prosecco!

I mean, who doesn't love an Italian sparkling white wine?

This week's selection, thanks to Diner en Blanc, was the Val D'Oca Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore. Fruity with a hint of citrus, it's the perfect bottle for an evening celebration with friends. and at $16.00 (Canadian) a bottle, the price is just right!


How are you enjoying this final August weekend? What are you looking forward to MOST about September and fall? 

Cheers!
