Love From Alice

“Money doesn’t buy elegance. You can take an inexpensive sheath, add a pretty scarf, gray shoes, and a wonderful bag, and it will always be elegant.” – Caroline Herrera

Scarves have always been one of my favourite accessories and Love From Alice is one of my go to stops for my growing scarf collection. Open Saturday and Sundays in Jubilee Market Hall at Covent Garden in London, England. I love that scarves are A simple and inexpensive way to add a pop of colour and change up an outfit. If you find yourself in London, definitely pop by Love From Alice for a visit.

Anthony Bourdain

“Just be nice. Getting angry and frustrated in much of the world doesn’t help at all. It’s incomprehensible, you lose face, it makes you look ridiculous. Have a willingness to try new stuff. Be grateful for any hospitality offered. And be flexible in your plans, because a rigid itinerary is lethal to a good time.” 
I absolutely loved Anthony Bourdain. He was a great storyteller who I was lucky to see live a few years ago. I loved following his adventures of travel, food and drink while interacting with people in many places in the world that I likely will never see. Anthony was one of my favourite people on television. Thankful his legacy will carry on through his many shows and the stories he has left the world. Sad to see his final episode of Parts Unknown air this evening.
Anthony – you are definitely be missed and always remembered. RIP.

Fairmont Royal York Hotel Royal Wedding Celebrations

Thank you to Cristina Tengalia of CP24 and the Fairmont Royal York Hotel for interviewing me live today about the birth of a new Prince. A dream come true for a lifelong royal lover. I grew up with the Royal Family and I love that the Duchess of Cambridge honoured the beautiful Princess Diana in her outfit choice leaving the Lindo Wing.

The media’s visit was to launch the Royal York Hotel Romance month in celebration of the upcoming Royal Wedding. A little Prince decided to be part of the celebration. If you live or are visiting in Toronto, definitely drop into the Royal York to savour the new English Garden. If you are looking to view the upcoming Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Ms, Meghan Markle in style and without a trip across the pond, you may wish to plan a visit to the Royal York for their Duke and Duchess for the Day or one of their other Royal York Hotel Romance stays.

For me personally, I cannot wait for the Royal Wedding and watching what is ahead for the Royal family and the impact they will continue to make on our world. ❤️
