NINETY-NINE/ farewell to target canada

If you live in Canada, I'm sure you've already heard the news. If you haven't, I'm sorry to be the one to tell you this. Please don't shoot the messenger.

Yesterday and today have been rough for me and I'm still coming to terms with the news. I feel as though someone is playing a sick joke on me. I try to hide from it, but it is plastered just about everywhere. Less than two years after Target opened up shop in Canada, they announced that they are making a departure and that they are going to close all of their 133 stores in the Great White North, leaving about 17,600 Canadians out of work.

NINETY-EIGHT/ birthday recap

I'M OFFICIALLY TWENTY-THREE! I’ve always been a huge fan of birthdays and this years has been truly remarkable. I’m so blessed to have such amazing friends and family. It’s unreal how much I've been spoiled this year, I really feel so lucky and fortunate for everyone, and everything, in my life at this moment.

My goal for this year is to try my absolute best to make it the most amazing and memorable year of my life to date
.

My birthday is technically the 16th of December so it was a few days ago but I've been spending the past week either celebrating, working or Christmas shopping so I haven't really had a chance to hammer out this post. My birthday was celebrated from Friday the 12th up until my actual date of birth and I truly had a blast. From going out dancing with my friends, eating the best ice cream cake ever, to spending time with my loved ones and receiving the most thoughtful cards and gifts, to going to Montreal for a day and getting a new tattoo - this year's birthday was definitely one for the books.

NINETY-SEVEN/ talin design x glebe craft fair

This weekend you'll be able to find me alongside Talin of Talin Design at the Glebe Craft & Artisan Fair. I will be assisting in sales and going on (much needed) coffee runs. Not only do I love attending craft fairs but I love working at them; they're a great place to meet local artisans and it's always so refreshing talking to someone who is truly passionate about what they do. 

Jewelry itself has always been a bit of a grey area for me when it comes to fashion. I pride myself on knowing current fashion trends, what's classic and what is worth buying but jewelry is one area that I could never wrap my head around. As someone who loves fashion and loves learning (aka I'm a huge know-it-all) this has always bothered me. Enter Talin - sitting down with her for just a few short hours has taught me more about jewelry trends, materials and worth than I could ever imagine. Seriously, this girl knows her stuff and she puts her heart and soul into it.
