Mountain Getaway

Is there anything better than a week away? After the craziest, busiest holiday season - Christian and I finally got the opportunity to have a little getaway. We are lucky enough to live just over an our away from beautiful Whistler, Canada. Even though the we had more rain than snow we still got the opportunity to do a couple of snowy activities, like snow shoeing and snowmobiling, btw - so much fun, you have to try it if you have the chance!

On our way home we stopped right here to take some deep breaths of the fresh mountain air and to also snap some quick pics, before returning to city life.

At Home with Ally & Polette Eyewear

Even though I love getting all glam for a night out with Christian, I'm really a home body at heart! My very favorite place in the whole world is snuggling with my dog Binxie with some tea in my bedroom. 
Another Ally secret - is that I almost alUrways wear glasses - especially at home, and when 
I'm working, and today I'm wearing my new fav cateye glasses from Polette and the best part about these is that most of the frames start at under $10 - which is amazing for me because I love variety, and at that price I can have so many new pairs! The reason that Polette can produce such an amazing product at such a fabulous price is that the frames and lenses are provided straight from our workshops, there is no stock nor intermediates to high margins. 
They also have sunnies! Amazing right?

A Full Skirt is Always a Good Idea

Any time is a great time for a pretty a-line skirt and a ladylike croptop! Well I think so anyway. I've added another pretty skirt to my collection, and while I don't usually like playing favorites, I have to say this one is totally amazing, shop it in navy below, as well as my super cute croptop, which is on mega-sale, and also comes in a swoon-worthy soft pink.
