Ernest Alexander FW14 Menswear Fashion Presentation #MBFW @ernestalexander

The Ernest Alexander presentation kicked off Fashion Week in style at the Industria Studios.

For fall 2014, designer and founder Ernest Sabine took inspiration from board track racing, a type of motorsport that was popular in the United States during the 1910’s and 1920’s that first used wooden planks to race motorcycles on. Racers were impeccably dressed; a typical uniform included a woven shirt worn under a sweater usually paired with a classic chino tucked into riding boots. Ernest includes elements of this past uniform but with an updated, modern take.


Outerwear plays a major role for fall 2014 with a lambskin leather-racing jacket, Ernest’s take on a shearling collared flight jacket and a shawl collar wool coat. Medium to heavy weight wools make for a great set of blazers and trousers that are meant to work as mix-and-match separates within the collection. Wool trousers can also be paired with great knits, classic woven shirts and wool vests with hints of leather details that nod to the racing uniform of the time.

Colors are masculine and dark for fall. Shades of grey are a recurrent theme with pops of blue peppered in while statements of black, brown and olive are found in the leather details. Hounds tooth and plaid patterns popular of the decade are used through out. Wool ties match the collection smartly and cotton handkerchiefs add the perfect finishing to the overall look.

Classic bag styles are slightly updated and feature new front pockets and waxed glossy finishes which create a glistening sheen. The flight bag carryall is the newest shape to Ernest Alexander and comes in a dark, navy leather and waxed cotton canvas in British tan.

Event LOVE: #InTheDanceTO with @IAMYENDI


I got an invite to attend a Dancehall Fitness class a few weeks ago, and I had no idea what to expect. I’d never even heard of a Dancehall Fitness class, but I knew that there was no way I was going to miss it. AND, when you hear that the gorgeous Miss Jamaica World and Miss Jamaica Universe Yendi Phillips is flying all the way from sunny Jamaica to cold and freezing Toronto to share her work out secrets with us, there is definitely no way I was going to miss it. She  recently released her fitness Dancehall video, In The Dance Fitness Jamaica and came to Toronto to tell us all about it and share some moves from her DVD to whip us into shape!

20140130_162034As soon as she walked in, you could feel the motivation go up by a 100%, because she has such an amazing spirit and her body is like WOAH! During her introduction she mentioned that she has a one year old, and you could hear the gasps of disbelief, because she is snactched! She also caught me staring at her mid-section in disbelief the minute she said that she just had a baby…yeah it’s FLAT like that. Needless to say we were all more than ready to try out this workout, especially because she says that majority of her fitness regime is dancing. Who doesn’t love dancing? I was so ready!



What do I think about the In The Dance Fitness Jamaica workout? It was awesome! Yendi is an amazing instructor, and the workout was so much fun. I’ve never had fun while feeling the burn, but we were all having such a good time, that we asked for more when the class was over. It was awesome! I went home hurting so good, and woke up HURTING so good. Totally worth it.











I went home and did the workout, cause I just couldn’t get enough!

Thank you Yendi for coming all the way to Toronto and helping us add a little spice to our New Year’s resolutions of looking and feeling better on the inside and outside, and to Tika for sharing this awesome experience with us!


If you’ve never tried this workout, I suggest you get yourself to the nearest Wal-Mart and get yourself a copy of In The Dance Fitness Jamaica!

Say I Love You in 4 Ways

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and nothing can really top last year’s… when I got engaged on the Brooklyn Bridge Park. It was freezing but it couldn’t be more perfect!  Being married almost a year now, I have learned how to say I love you without saying it.  Spice up your life with traditional and nouveau ways to show your partner they are special!

1. The Naked Heart by CARR Candle


Scent is closely tied to memory and you can perfectly embed yourself into your lover’s subconscious by buying him a candle. A memorable one, not one from the supermarket for air freshening!  I love candles but my husband LOVES candles and has introduced me to brands like Red Flower, Tocca and Diptyque. With premium candles, you only have to burn them for 20 mins and the scent lingers in your house for the entire day. Your favorite scents also come in minis so you can… travel with them! And make any hotel room smell just like home. A great candle will have a medium cotton wick that does not burn high or fast. It also does not leave a ton of smoke when you snuff it out. A beautiful candle will change your whole room, apartment, relationship and taste level.

2. Piper-Heidsieck Rosé Sauvage


In 1785, legend has it that, Florens-Louis Heidsieck was invited to personally present a bottle of one of his champagnes to Queen Marie Antoinette. In 1960, Marilyn Monroe famously declared that she went to bed each night with a drop of perfume and woke up each morning with a glass of Piper-Heidsieck. Today, the champagne’s character remains worthy of a queen, and, with its eye-catching pink label and unique box, is perfect for Valentine’s Day 2014. Specially packaged for Valentine’s Day in a lenticular-printed box featuring cascading rose petals, just like a bouquet of roses, the Champagne’s notes of black cherry, black currant, pink grapefruit and blood orange are offset by a lingering, spice-tinged finish.  Nothing says celebration the way Champagne does!  Don’t save the good stuff for an apology or after a screw up. Celebrate that fact you found each out.  I will definitely break out our wedding crystal champagne flutes for this!

3. iPhone 5C from Verizon5c

Communication is key!  So many times, calls get dropped, reception is bad, battery dies and camera memory is full. It sucks and since my hubby and I are both overdue for a new phone, our iPhone 4’s are just not cutting it anymore.  I recently got to test out the iPhone 5C from Verizon and love it. The speed of download, responsively, the longer screen, the lighter phone – all contribute to better communication, better mood and of course more talk time.  The Verizon 5C is colorful and fun and an easy present for Valentine’s Day.

4. Aglit Italy Lux Lambskin Laces

Upgrade your laces and do a his and hers 🙂  Lambskin laces will make any of your sneakers super luxe.
