Last night Global Garçon hit 1000 followers and to be honest, I couldn’t be more grateful, jittery and perhaps a little overexcited. Without a doubt, I’m reiterating this is for the thousandth time (get it?…), but I can’t thank you enough for all of your love and support. I appreciate every one of you!

Today my sister and I escaped the cold and checked out a few stores that were continuing their post-holiday clearance sales. Was it a successful shopping trip? Defffffinitely not…Although I did manage to shoot this outfit of the day for you that I promised I would post in my “SNEAK PEEK” post.

Before I head to class, I thought I would give you a little sneak peek at two of the pieces I’ll be showcasing in an OOTD later this week. Both of these items, which I’m completely obsessed with, are extremely versatile, quite ‘cheap and cheerful’ and are perfect additions to your wardrobe if you enjoy subtle hints of white.

Today I thought I would whip up a quick (and short) post to show you the comfortable and cozy, yet somewhat “put together” look I wore while traveling from Banff -> Calgary and finally -> Toronto. Remember friends, sweatpants and hoodies aren’t the only comfortable options when flying!

Over the past few days, things have been absolutely insane. I’ve been running around town picking up last-minute things before I fly back to Toronto tomorrow and most importantly, Global Garçon reached 900 followers (THANK YOU!). I constantly reiterate this, but I can’t thank you enough for all of your love and support.

Of all the incredible, stunning, beautiful (I’ll stop now…) fashion-related pieces, you probably know my favourites are watches, rings and bracelets. Their versatility is endless and you can sport them in so many different ways. After getting a few requests to write this post, I thought I would show you some of the pieces I’ve been wearing non-stop over the past few months.

Today my family and I trekked out to Lake Louise to go for lunch and explore the Post Hotel. The scenery was beautiful, although seeing these gorgeous horses made it even more special (to be honest, I was a little terrified at first). In today’s last post before the New Year, I thought I’d combine fashion, family and a little spontaneous adventure. Essentially everything I adore!

I don’t know about you, but the holiday sales have me itching to purchase a new bag. Two of the pieces I’m currently lusting over are the Givenchy Pandora and Givenchy Nightingale. Both of these bags are practical, spacious, perfect for everyday use and seem to be quite durable. What are your thoughts on these bags?

A few days ago, my best friend and I exchanged Christmas gifts and I was blown away when I laid my eyes on this fragrance. Surprisingly enough, this is my first Chanel cologne and I couldn’t be more obsessed. If you’re looking for a super last-minute Christmas gift for a friend, boyfriend or husband, look no further!

Yesterday I went for high tea at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel and it was heavenly to say the least. The atmosphere was fantastic (as always) and best of all, it was so nice catching up with my best friend. In today’s post I thought I would kill two birds with one stone and feature two of my favourite things…fashion and food!
