Do ya’ll have fun plans for the long weekend?  Thank goodness for Holiday Weekends! We are headed North of the border to celebrate the last weekend of summer in Toronto. I have never been so if anyone has any great recommendations, I would love your input! I am going to try and soak up my last weekend of summer by wearing my favorite white shorts, even though I do not believe in the white after Labor Day rule. White pants should be worn all year long.  

Our plan is to spend the entire weekend outside exploring, riding bikes and eating our way through the city- which I am pretty stoked about. We have quite the drive so obviously I need all of the essentials; my September issues for Fall inspiration, my iPad with my new book (I know I am behind on the times!), a new pair of sunglasses that have officially become my all time favs, Twizlers- my guilty pleasure, and my handy dandy passport. I will spare you the picture inside, just think circa 2000s with braces, frizzy hair, and black eyeliner- not my best look (: I definitely need a cute cover like this gold one from The Crew to distract from the picture.

I just wanted to say thank you all so much for the kind words today about my big news.  I am very excited and it means so much to hear from you! 

I was browsing over on the darling Fabulous K today and found this awesome site for camera straps.  I have not only been looking to upgrade from my Cannon (boring) strap, but they are a company that gives back to the community.  Fotostrap makes these super cute leather and canvas camera straps with the option to monogram.  I mean seriously who doesn’t love a good monogram.  I think I am going to put The James on my birthday list (its only 2 weeks away!) or maybe the Navy Canvas, but I seriously love them all.  You can find all of them here, and I am telling you if you have a SLR camera this is going to be one of the first things on your wish list!
