Not too late I hope, but I know statistically over half of you are not done shopping just yet. Let’s talk fragrances because it is easily one of the most thoughtful and luxurious gifts a person can give. Scents can transport you to other worlds, remind you of sweet memories or give you that subtle confidence we all crave. Here are my top fragrances of the year for both Men and Women:

Chloé Eau de Parfum: I’ve worn Chloe fragrances for years. I love the subtle sopsicationi of their fragrances, perfect for women of all ages. Peony, Rose, Honey, Cedarwood make up this airy feminine scent. 

MARC JACOBS Decadence Eau de Toilette: Not only is this bottle stunning but this fragrance is equally as beautiful. Nashi pear, Blackcurrant, Green ivy. Floral heart: Sheer jasmine petals, Magnolia, Pink lily of the valley. Luxurious dry: Cashmere woods, Raspberry Gloss, White Amber. This scent is so glamorous!

Menswear Monthly || The Athletic Look || @Jacamo

You rarely see him but he does exist, introducing again my better half Matthew. Can’t thank him enough for being so hands on with our little family, he truly works his butt off for us and is truly present when he spends time with us. Love him! Most of the time when you see him on the blog in a style piece we focus on the few times he dresses up. Instead we are showing you the everyday Matt we see often, casual athletic clothes as we partner with Jacamo.

Lifestyle || How does he do it? || #SuperDad with @TheBrick & @Dyson #partner

Sometimes I don’t know how he does it? Or how I’m so lucky… he makes it all look easy most of the time. He’s my better half Matthew and he’s Superdad to us. Yes ladies, I’m luck enough to have a hubby that happily helps around the house. One of his main jobs is vacuuming, I rarely get to it but he loves it! Bless his heart. So you can imagine his frustration in the past two years when we’ve gone through 3 vacuums!!!!! That’s right, 3 vacuums, basically one per year. So this time I decided I didn’t want to spend $400 on just your average machine, instead I wanted to invest and get the best. Welcome the Dyson big ball animal to our family… and let me tell you we’ve been waiting for an addition like him for a long time.

For us we were looking for several key features in a vacuum: we needed a large bin for debris, strong suction on a variety of floor types and it needed to stand up to 1 large dog, 1 baby and a toddler tornado sized mess. The big ball animal has it all, this vacuum self-rights when toppled, it literally picks itself up! It has a larger capacity bin, making it 33% bigger than the previous generation of Dyson Cinetic™ canister vacuums. The carbon fibre turbine floor tool picks up fine dust while the stiff nylon bristles remove ground-in dirt and hair from any floor type. It deals with the pet hair easily transferring from carpet to floor without having to switch tools.It was everything we were looking for and more.

Lifestyle || A last minute gift guide for that Daddy in your life…

With Father’s Day just around the corner, I’ve got some last minute gift ideas for that special Daddy in your life. Whether he’s fancy or athletic here are a few ideas to spoil him this year…

Scotch! Any Glen Morangie is a great choice, they all have amazing flavour and hit in a mid range price so they won’t break the bank to get that high end taste.

Stainless Steel Scotch Rocks: I know you’ve probably seen the rocks on tons of gift guides this year. That’s because they are amazing if you are a Scotch drinker. They chill your drink without melting and diluting it. They are great for white wine too! ;) BUT I suggested the stainless steel versions, there are actual “rocks” on the market and they are porous soap stone. Over time they absorb their enviromonet, like the soap from your dish washer… gross!

A High Tech Watch: For an athletic type it can be amazing to track your progress throughout the day.

The Softest Tee: This tee shirt is sooooooo soft! When I say softest, I mean it! I love their women’s and baby lines too. Shedo Lane makes UV sun protective clothing that is both fashion forward and comfy.

Bowtie: For that fancy guy in your life, a black bowtie is a must! And this one costing under $100 but looking like $400 is worth every penny.

Sophisticated Watch: If that Daddy in your life dresses up for work or in life… this watch is amazing. Slick, modern, minimalist: this watch will go with anything from a suit to a cardi.  Continue reading
