Vita Bella

Halifax in the summer is truly beautiful. The sun breaks through thick fluffy clouds and illuminates not only the sparkling ocean water but the bright flowers and life of this small, bustling city. Though the summer is Halifax's busiest time of year, it's peaceful in the Public Gardens, a beautiful historic oasis right in the heart [...]

Tall Boots and a Summer Dress

Tall Boots and a Summer Dress

Summer is the season of dresses, sunlight on skin and wind in hair. But summer in Halifax often finds us in the rain, hopping through puddles that were fun when we were welly-wearing kids, but that now stain our canvas sandals a muddy brown. My answer to that is to forgo the sandals in favour [...]

Modern Day Greaser Girl

Modern Day Greaser Girl

Ever since I was little, I've been inspired by the Greaser Girl look.

Now that I'm back in Halifax for my first summer [...]

Happy Winter Solstice, Techies! Today marks the first official day of winter, even though it's been frosty for a few weeks now. To celebrate the new season, here's one of my favourite winter looks, featuring my best leather jacket by Michael Kors and my wonderful winter heels by Pajar. We did this photoshoot last year [...]

Hello Holiday Heaven!

Hello Holiday Heaven!

As the weather grows colder and the nights grow darker, the holiday season is beginning to shine through. Eggnog is pushing pumpkin spice out of our coffee cups, fuzzy boots are kicking out our fall shoes, and the colour red is cropping up faster than the snow can fall to cover it. And with this [...]
