Allan Gardens: Flowers and Jewels

Welcome to Toronto's Allan Gardens, one of the city's oldest parks and conservatories, and to my mind one of the most romantic places in the city. It's filled with beauty, colour, magic, sweet smells, and lots of inspiration.
I'd like to talk about these beautiful earrings for one second. They were a gift from my lovely friends Jennifer and Tiffany who I've been fortunate enough to meet through the blog. They are sisters, and the talent behind a wonderful jewelery company called t+j Designs. Both Jennifer and Tiffany have been so supportive of my blog, often leaving comments, offering encouragement and ideas as I dipped my big toe in the pool of style blogging. I'm so happy to know them and so grateful for this lovely gift. Please check out their blogs and their shop to be inspired.

Isn't this place so beautiful? If you're in Toronto, please stop by and visit Allan Gardens, it's an escape from the noise of the city.
