As much as I'm a person who likes to go-go-go, sometimes it's nice to take a break from technology, work & everyday stressors. My man and I just returned from a week long vacation in Cayo Santa Maria, Cuba where sand, sun, surf, beach & booze were staples in our daily routine. I drove a speed boat, we swam with dozens of tropical fish while snorkeling and we explored historical Havana. It was a very relaxing trip and now that it's back to reality I already miss the slow paced vacation lifestyle. Here are some of my favourite photos from our trip:

I've needed glasses since I was 8 years old. I clearly remember being very excited about the idea of glasses and thought they were so cool. Until I reached Junior High, got called four eyes and decided they were very uncool. So when I turned 15 and got fitted for contact lenses I couldn't be happier. Until I reached University and thought it was cool once again to wear glasses (but fashion glasses, worn over my contact lenses). Ah the flip flopping I have done over eyeglasses. I currently associate them with relaxation and sleep as I don't usually take out my contacts until bedtime. However I do like to sport them on occassion, as a geeky chic accessory. Speaking of glasses as an accessory, sunglasses are both practical and stylish and I don't leave the house on a sunny day without a pair perched on top of my head.

Do you like to accessorize with glasses? Eye or sun?

Last week I was invited to two very fashionable events supporting Canadian talent. The first, a launch of designer Ron White's shoe collection for Holt Renfrew. The second, a vernissage at a new art gallery & tattoo shop in my neighbourhood. I invited my curly haired better half to join me and we made a Thursday date night of shoes & didgeridoos!

|The thing I love most about Ron White's shoes is that they're designed for both functionality & fashion, meaning they're comfortable and chic!|
|This shoe's iridescent quality reminds me of something a mermaid would wear, so whimsical.|
|It looks like a killer, but Ron White created the world's first All Day Heels technology using NASA Poron!|
|With beauty guru & perfume whisperer Jane of Daly Beauty.|
|The first lady, Laureen Harper is a fashionable supporter of Ron White's impeccable designs.|
|With the lovely Deb McCain (how fab is her coral suit!)|
|My tootsies are sample size so I tried on a pair of Rob White's heels for fun. They're like a stylish pillow for your feet, I gave an audible sigh of delight when slipping them on.|
|An animated conversation about shoes (what else!) with the one and only Ron White.|
|The first lady knows how to strut her stuff in Ron White!|
|Champagne & heels, does it get any better?|
|The adorable shoe cookie gifts (which were Oreos dipped in chocolate, yum!)|
After oo'ing and aah'ing over gorgeous heels that I hope to one day be able to afford, we headed to an entirely different creative scene crawling with artists and musicians.
|With Ben, my future tattoo artist for a piece I am getting later this year at the Railbender Tattoo Studio.|
|Celebrating Mat Dube's vernissage.|
|The ethnic melodies of the Didgeridoo (played by none other than artist Mat Dube himself!)|
What is your idea of a fun date night?
