There have been times when I looked at items in my closet and thought: “what was I thinking?” Especially recently, when I took a really hard look at what was in my closet compared to my personal style.

Sustainable Gift Guide 2020

photos by: boakviewphotography.com I can’t believe it’s already the holiday season! This year I’ve decided to share a sustainable gift guide, and I’ve divided it into different categories so you can find a thoughtful gift for everyone in your life. Most of these gift ideas are small but impactful, and I’ve chosen small to medium conscious brands that are doing good things for the planet. In all honesty, I’m not the biggest fan of gift

My Secret to a Festive Holiday Capsule Wardrobe

photos by: boakviewphotography.com At the time I’m writing this post, it’s still unclear whether we’ll be able to see family and friends for the holidays. Without the social occasions of holiday parties, getting dressed for the holidays might seem completely irrelevant. But in my personal opinion, I think the best way to stick it to 2020 would be to inject some festivity into our lives by way of our closets.  This season of staying home

Fantastic Books By BIPOC Authors for Holiday Reading

Is it too early to talk about holiday reading? As far as I’m concerned, it’s never too early to start thinking about my next big chunk of time off – whether it’s at home or away.

These Are The Best Places To Shop Secondhand in Toronto

Photography by: Gillian Foster Photography / Photos edited by: Boakviewphotography  I often get asked about the best secondhand shopping spots in Toronto. Sadly, I don’t call Toronto my home but I visit often and have definitely popped into some of their incredible vintage, consignment and thrift stores. I usually go with my friend (and photographer!)
