Summer had finally arrived and there are so many fun activities for kids. Finding a place which will fit my autistic son needs, can be challenging, simply because I have to find the right destination, which will not be too noisy or too crowded. A place that will provide a a calm environment, like a wide field, where he can run and play.
My son was diagnosed with autism in high function two years ago and since than I was determined to continue with my regular life and gives my son the opportunity to enjoy and explore all beautiful things in life, like family trips, fun activities, and not let the autism come in my way on achieving these family goals.
Since my son really loves animal and enjoy watching them, we decided to visit a local farm- Bronte Creek near Oakvile, just about an hour from Toronto.
From the cool-girl vibe to the ’90s grunge style, the choker seems to be a trend the can suit any girl or any style. The good new is that the choker doesn’t go anywhere anytime soon, furthermore, recently there are so many different varieties that you can select from: Bold, Dainty, Lace, velvet or lace, anything goes. Just pick your favourite one.
Ettika is a Jewelry online company that carries variety of chokers with a bohemian chic vibe, which is definitely reflect my own style. I choose a choker with this cute bow detail in black and gold.
I think that statement accessories can be merged into simple look to add an element of fun and uniqueness. I love how the choker pop up against the electric blue colour, giving it another dimension. Of course for a casual day look, I dressed it a bit down with these winter lace up boots and finished it with an oversized cardigan.

There is nothing like a wooly oversized sweater to warm up the cooler month, so when I saw this sweater from French Connection, I knew I will be living in it all winter long. I love the texture and the soft wool, which is so comfy. True to be told, I can’t wear a sweater that itches even if it a good looking one. I happen to have few knits that I barely wore because I couldn’t stand the feeling of them, when it touched my skin.
To balance the oversized silhouette and to add some edginess to my look, I paired it with skinny jeans, that have these fringe details in the bottom. These sneakers with the high top cut are a cool alternative to ankle boots and they provide maximum comfort.

The weather starts getting cooler, however it’s still not cold enough for sweater or boots as it appears everywhere, from magazine to retails stores. My desire to wear all of the new fall trends while it’s still hot outside, lead me to find alternative solutions in order to keep my look fashionble and up to date, one of them is to focus on the colour scheme and to choose the shades and the fabrics that screams fall.
The richer autumn colours create a cozy feel and make the transition from summer to fall more approachable. Therefor I opt for these burgundy classic pants which are also timeless and comfy, and paired them with a cropped top. Once the chilly days of autumn will arrive, I will simply layer it with a cool jacket or a Chunky knit Cardigan

With all the joy and happiness that summer evokes, there is something that can be quite annoying for all the fashionistas out there. How to make a statement look and express your own individuality, When it’s so hot and humid outside.
Quite often I find myself tending to wear the same denim short and a breezy light shirt, for braving the hot temperature.
But I do believe that there are creative ways to pull off summer look without looking scruffy. Thinking out of the box, and literally don’t be not afraid to sweat a bit….
Mix of prints:
I decided to wear this gingham boxy fit top with a tile printed skirt in a soft and airy breathable garment. The boxy top and the flowy skirt create the perfect balance. The one print on top and a different one on bottom is also a great way to create an optical illusion and flattering your body, and of course it’s a great way to make a stylish statement, without putting too much efforts in to it.
For bohemian touch, I added a fringe bag and gladiator strappy gladiator sandals.

Summer calls for light and breathable fabrics, that allow you to deal with the heat, especially when you don’t have any air-conditioner to run to. This easy throw-on-and-go jumpsuit , is not only an effortless piece but also a stylish one. The pinafore jumpsuit is a must have piece for any summer look. I love the all over daisy prints because it’s gives your outfit an instant seasonal update, and also yellow is one of the most refreshing colour to wear during summer time.
This flower motif brings together feminine flair with daytime look, that will definitely put a smile on your face. I paired them with a simple black sandals that capture comfort in a very stylish way, and of course hat, the essential piece for these hot sunny days.

I can’t believe fashion week is already over, time goes by so fast, when you are having fun! Even so, it was a crazy week, I had such an amazing time, and I met so many fabulous and fashionable people. It’s defiantly the most wonderful time of the year in Toronto. This season, World Master Card Fashion Week brought new faces and returning designers, which made it even more exciting for me.
Shopping for Toronto Fashion Week was quite challenging. My goal was to find outstanding pieces, which will suit the chilly days of fall and boost my street style outfit. The weather in October start to cool down, but still there are some warm days, which doesn’t require a coat.
My outfit for Toronto Fashion Week in day 1
For day 1, I decided to wear a velvet dress with no sleeves and an oversized knit jacket on top, sexy red heels and cherry cross-body bag. What I love about this look is the contrast between the oversized cozy jacket and the fitted dress, and also that fringe details, which capturing the movement of the dress while walking. The cheerful cherry prints brings fun and playful element to the whole outfit, and this is what Fashion Week is all about, having fun.

Versatility is essential to any fashionista’s closet. Therefore I think that black Kimono cardigan is must have piece, that perfect from day or night. It’s a cool update to the classy black blazer. The soft cardigan makes it the ultimately throw on for chilly summer nights. Kimono is the best way to injecting a little bohemian feel into any outfit. It’s a great way to embrace the boho chic style without any efforts. I found an amazing selection of kimonos in a an online shop called Zaful. The brand carries fashionable fashion forward pieces in high quality and with affordable prices. This little black kimono from Zaful is an essential piece that I can’t get enough of. I love the crochet flowers details and wide sleeves.

The kimono style cardigan looks great with a contrast elements like a tailored skirt or fitted trousers, which create a sophisticated modern look. I paired it with a mini stripe skirt and relaxed chiffon blouse.

There is something so special about Tel Aviv that make me fall in love with this place over and over again, and not only because it’s my hometown. Tel Aviv is known as the sleepless city , with vibrant nightlife, coffee bars and the variety of excellent restaurants that open 7 days a week. The energy vibe of this amazing city is something that I miss the most.
When it’s come to clubbing, Tel Aviv takes it all, so I decided to take advantage of what the city has to offer and went out dancing with friends. It’s felt like I am in my twenties again, taking a quick relief from my busy life as a mother.
While I was in Israel last month, I went few times to a club called Q hotel. This club plays a current hip hop and dance music with a great atmosphere. While I was there, amazing pictures were taken there by skillful photographers. I totally love these pictures and decided to share these fun moments with you.

Lip balm is one of the must have travel beauty product. Recently I discovered Epic Blend, a Canadian company that produce a high petroleum-free lip balm, and I must said that this product become one of my favourites all natural lip balm.
I love the fact that these balms gives you moisture without greasiness and it’s also create a healthy looking lips, thanks to the integrates: organic hemp seed oil, organic Shea butter and coconut oil, which left my lips soft and super smooth.
