Food Glorious Food: Dogs

Bark & Fitz- Dog Heaven

I am a huge dog lover. I think everyone should own a dog, they are the best pet. I have a miniature poodle, and she is very special to me! I take her everywhere I go, she gets spoiled majorly whenever I am home. While shopping with my mom today, we passed by Bark and Fitz, and decided to go inside.

This store is dog heaven. They have everything from Scoopie bags (pick up your dogs poo-bags), shoes, collars/leashes, and even a bakery. The bakery amazes me every time I go in. I once purchased dog sushi, cookies, and today I even saw a birthday cake! It had frosting and "Happy Birthday" written across the cake. On February 9th, Muffy (my dog) will get one of these for her special day, no doubt about it. Here is a picture of dog cupcakes, or "Pupcakes." They look good enough to eat!
Bark and Fitz has many locations across Ontario, Quebec, BC, and a store in New Jersey. I highly recommend this store - since it is not just for dogs, but for owners as well. All dog lovers will drool!

Etc...: Anthropologie

Anthropologie 2nd Store Opening in Toronto

Anthro is probably one of my favorite stores. Living 5 minutes away from the Anthropologie on 5th ave in NYC, I was kind of depressed coming home knowing I can't walk to all my favourite NYC shops. However, someone at Anthro must love me and see my prayers because there are now 2 stores in Toronto, both within 10 minutes of my house!

There is one located at The Shops at Don Mills, a great outdoor mall with stores like: Mendocino, Micheal Kors, Coach, and many other stores and restaurants. The new Anthro opened in Yorkville, an upbeat, trendy downtown area.

I haven't visited the Don Mills location, but the Yorkville one is 2 stories and has the typical vintage, wood-embellished setting. They have bedding, accessories, and of course stunning clothing.

Go check it out!

BeautyBabe: OPI

OPI's NEW Fall Collection
OPI's fall colors have started to hit stores. As sad as it is knowing that school is around the corner, it is exciting to start back to school/fall shopping. OPI's new fall collection, Espana, offers a variety of colors representing the country of Spain.

Some of the colors include: Barefoot in Barcelona, a nude shade; Here Today, Aragon Tomorrow, a dark emerald shade; No Spain No Gain, a berry shade; and 9 other exciting polishes. My favourite color is Suzi Skis in the Pyrenees, a deep blue-grey color.

I'm usually an OPI-kind-of-girl, but recently my friend told me to buy Essie nail polish. I haven't seen their fall collection, but am quite excited for it to come out!

Web&Fashion: StyleCaster

StyleCaster - Discover your Style!!

Since the beginning of June, I was in NYC - the most wonderful city on the planet. I had an internship at
StyleCaster, the first style discovery platform website. I was a fashion intern, and got the opportunity to write a couple articles, style outfits, and meet a lot of amazing people in the fashion world.

Once you sign up, you will get daily emails with the temperature of your chosen city and an outfit suiting the weather. The site features news, daily looks, shop section, community, forecast, and video. I think it's pretty amazing, and I'm not being bias just because I worked there.They recently created a widget - which is super cool! You simply input your city and it shows the temperature and an outfit to wear (it's posted on the side of my blog ---->)

All of my friends that I told about StyleCaster LOVE the site, and go on it several times per day. Here is the link to sign up, CLICK HERE!

Go check it out! Let me know your thoughts!

StacieBlair's MUST HAVES: Marc by Marc Jacobs

Marc by Marc Jacobs Boots

With fall somewhat around the corner, fall fashions are starting to appear in stores. While shopping in Bloomies, I found a fabulous pair of boots:

Marc by Marc Jacobs flat leather boots. They also come in a tan colour, but I personally love black because it works with most outfits. I hope to get my hands on a pair for the fall! They are super comfortable, stylish, and who doesn't love a pair of Marc by Marc Jacobs pair of shoes? Also, they're not that pricey... $395 for a pair of designer boots is pretty damn reasonable.

Etc...: NYC

Visitors in NYC Part 2

Sorry I haven't been around the past couple days, I was the tour guide for my friends this past weekend. We did a lot of shopping, eating, and exploring NYC. We all found some great purchases, there are a lot of sales happening, FYI.

Never having been to TopShop before, my 2 gals loved it. This 3-floor building is filled with stylish clothing for women, men, and even a petite section. They have a great accessories section with jewelry (I got a cool pair of vintage-style earrings), an amazing shoe section (I got a pair of light turquoise oxford loafers), and all different style of clothing. We honestly could have spent hours in there! The best part was, they have a 10% student discount! Gotta love any discount you can get!

Another thing my friends loved was Pinkberry. Who wouldn't love cold, creamy frozen yogurt with fresh fruit or dry toppings on top? It was a good snack for such a hot weekend.

Enjoy your week! Happy Tuesday!
