 The award comes with a few contingences...

2. Share seven facts about yourself.
3. Pay it forward to seven bloggers you adore and contact them to let them know they've been chosen.

Seven Facts about Me:
1. I live on a farm. No we do not have animals, just vegetables. It is as boring as it sounds.

3. I have a tattoo on my left foot of a Dutch/Canadian flag that I got during my "rebellious" years at Fashion school.
4. I am a hopeless romantic. I have been dating my bf for 6 1/2 years and can't wait to marry him! It has been a long distance relationship for 5 of those years so it makes it that much more exciting.
5. My middle name is Danielle, after my dad Daniel, since I was born on his birthday.
6. I have a slight obsession with organizing things. Organizers and cute little boxes get me excited, how sad.
7. I had a cat named lucky... it got hit by a car and died. Oh the irony.

Brighton & London, England

I traveled to England in February 2007 during my Spring break with my boyfriend to visit his sister while she was attending school there. I had her answer a few questions about dressing in England.

Q.What is a staple item for living in England?
A.Wellington boots (rain boots) and an umbrella.

Q. What is a popular trend you noticed while living there?
A. Girls loved the side messy ponytail and tights with the tunic top.

Q. How would you dress for a typical Spring day?
A. Spring is like any other day, rainy, so I always wore a light Spring jacket.

Q.What are some of your favourite places to shop?
A. Topshop, Miss Selfridge, Primark & River Island. 

We went to London for the weekend where we visited Camden Market which was really cool, and also saw the other typical tourist spots such as Buckingham Palace & Big Ben. The weather was cool, but I was just happy there wasn't snow!


Style Crush: Shenae Grimes

Tuesday, November 23, 2010

Actress: Shenae Grimes
Besides being a Canadian girl, Shenae Grimes is a beautiful, talented, actress. Her first major role was on Degrassi: The Next Generation, and she now stars in the hit series, 90210. She has a very casual sense of style which is why I love it, but she can also throw in a cool flare either with patterned tights or a hat.

Style Crush: Blake Lively

Thursday, November 11, 2010

Actress: Blake Lively
I have loved Blake Lively ever since her big debut in "Sisterhood of the travelling pants" (Love that movie), and still do in her role on Gossip Girl as "Serena VanderWoodsen".

She looked stunning in this Zuhair Murad gown this week on the show.
I think she is a natural beauty who looks great no matter what. I love that she can pull off a gorgeous gown, but yet still dresses casual during time off.
