music faves | april ’16


Months fly by so fast these days. It seemed like yesterday I was sitting among blankets a few days after Christmas, snuggled up with my cats, watching Star Wars.

Oh well. With change and time comes wisdom! (Pst: It’s almost my birthday.)

There’s so much great music out there these days. My music, Taylor Swift’s music, so many genres…

review | january 2016

Wow, what a month. I celebrated 144 followers on B&B and this blog’s anniversary on the 25th! I can’t believe that January is coming to a close.

As far as the New Year goes, I’ve been sticking to my plan of eating a little healthier {minus the binge at Star Wars today, yikes} and being more active by running in gym class. I’ve also been working a lot on my EP, No Regrets. I’ll have to tell you more about that soon.

Songwriting was a big part in my life this month as was learning to play the guitar, which I got on the 7th! It’s an amazing Fender acoustic and I adore it. I’ll be posting soon about songwriting, which is one of my favourite pastimes and I hope to turn it into something bigger soon.

The cats {Freckles, top, Sassy, bottom} have been wonderful this month. I really love my cats, and they help me through a lot. Freckles will be 3 years old on March 29th! Sassy… well, I’m not sure how old she is, all I know is that she’s adorable.

I’ve been editing my photos with the VSCO app, it has amazing filters and options. I used the filter F5 on all of these.

What have you been up to this month?

places to visit – toronto

Hullo guys!

I’ve been having a horrible craving to travel lately. I’m not going anywhere until the summer, so for now I’ll have to share where I’ve been with all of you!

Last summer, I visited Toronto. It’s an absolutely BEAUTIFUL city with lots of shopping, great food, and pretty views. Here are a few places you must go.

Queen Street

OH MY GOSH. This entire complex is amazing and has everything. Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, restaurants, and more. It’s beautiful.

Speaking of Anthropologie, here’s the one on Queen Street. It’s huge and used to be an old church. Each level is so unique and quirky.


Okay, this place is one of the best restaurants I’ve ever been to. They have authentic Italian food and it is delicious. I highly recommend the Sophia pizza and Nutella fritters. Also make sure to order a plate of olives.

Have you visited Toronto? How did you like it?
