Saying Goodbye

Oh Summer Candy has been a part of my life for almost two years now. I have met so many amazing bloggers and people throughout my experience writing for Oh Summer Candy and I am so blessed for the support from the blogger community. I have decided to stop blogging for OSC and begin a new chapter in the blogging world. I began to realize that I wasn't able to write content for OSC that I wanted to, my creativity was limited to only fashion. I want to expand that - but not only for myself, but for other girls as well. 

For the past few months, I have been creating a new collaborative blog called The Duchess. This blog is for females who are tired of the standard posts of "18 Reasons Why Being Single Is Great!" and "10 Snacks Under 100 Calories!". I want to cross some boundaries, step on a few toes, and shock a few people. I also want it to be a community where girls who never quite fit in - fit in. 

In order to make this blog a community, I have allowed girls to submit their work to be published. I have also included a forum for girls to discuss and ask questions about music, feminism, and much more. 

I want to thank each and every one of you for reading my posts. I never thought OSC would be as much of a success as it was and I am so grateful for everything and everyone. I hope you will continue to support me by checking out The Duchess and giving it a read.

Again, one more BIG thank you to everyone!

Spring Must Have: Kimono

Although it may not seem like it here in Canada, it has officially been spring for a little over a week. Fortunately, the weather is supposed to warm up this the week (fingers crossed). That means it's time to put away those heavy winter coats and toss on a kimono. Kimono's are my favourite spring trend right now - not only are they super light for spring, but you are bound to be the best dressed gal at the music festival this summer.

It's About Time!

I'm a huge Society6 stalker. If I want to spruce up my apartment, Society6 is the first place I  check. They don't just sell prints. Oh no, this site sells tote bags, tank tops, phone cases, and now CLOCKS. You can now have your favourite prints on a clock. I'm so used to checking the time on my phone that I probably forget how to read a traditional clock, but I still think they add a lot of character to any room. Here are a few of my favourite clocks on Society6:

Pineapple Clock: I hate the taste of pineapples, but I have to admit they are nice on the eyes. 

Mountains Through The Trees Clock: My mountain heart screams nostalgia when I look at this clock.

Sky Mandala Clock: This is such a pretty pattern! 

Bull Clock: Great for any country lover's home. 

These are just a few of my favourites, but I could show you hundreds of amazing clocks. Go check out more here!

Feeling Foxy Friday: Joules Review

I don't know how the weather is on your end, but here in Canada it is c o l d. But just because it's cold doesn't mean I have to ditch the warm coloursI am channeling my inner autumn, since I miss that weather oh-so-much. 

What I'm wearing: Boots c/o Joules USA, Dress Urban Planet, Coat (old) H&M, Scarf/Hat/Mits Local boutiques, Tights Value Village 

I'm feeling foxy today with my fox dress and these amazing Fox Rain Boots from Joules.  It's hard to find a good pair of waterproof winter boots, and rain boots take on even the deadliest of blizzards. The winters where I am are also extremely wet. There is actually a puddle so large on my campus right now, we call it Lake McMaster. 

It's also difficult to find a pair of rain boots that aren't hard to walk in, fit right on the calf, and are comfortable. I am telling you that these Joules Rainboots are made in heaven, it feels like I'm walking on a cloud. They are comfortable, stylish, affordable and make me want to go jump in as many puddles (or snow forts) as possible. If you don't feel like channeling your inner Foxy Cleopatra, their boots come in many different styles and patterns. Some of the other pairs I may have to snatch up are: thesethese, and these

Going to find some puddles to jump in now!

Weekly Roundup

You know what the best feeling in the world is? The feeling when you have been trying to crack your finger for what seems like eons (when really it's been thirty seconds) and it finally cracks. Anyways, happy Sunday everybody! I hope your 2014 has been going well. I've spent the first five days of 2014 and last five days of my holidays before school starts by laying in bed in my comfy Christmas pajamas playing The Sims over and over again. Apparently I would rather clean my Sims apartment rather than my own, oh well. Here is this week's roundup!

The holidays shouldn't be your only excuse to eat delicious food. Try these Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Bites and start your New Year's resolution next week (or next year.. who needs diets, really?) 

It's not like I need anymore excuses to shop, but this Reverse Split Sweater from Nasty Gal is too cute to resist. Watch out Kelly Kapowski 


I saw the Beyonce's Mrs Carter Tour in Toronto a few weeks ago, and I can't even comment on the fabulousness (is that a word?) on her performance. I know the album was released a few weeks ago and people may be thinking "this is old news" but whoever says that deserves a punch in the gut. Since the release, I have watched this music video an average five times a day. It's my favourite video from the album, what's yours?


I'm not sure what the weather is like in Italy right now but if it looks anything like this, take me there now. Secluded Beach, Furore, Amalfi, Italy

Now that I have my own Polaroid camera, this looks like a project I would love to do.
