Time for a Fresh Start …

After almost five years of writing content on High Heeled Life (formerly Falling Off a High Heeled  Life) and struggling back and forth over the past couple years with the direction the HHL blog would take, and whether to stop writing on HHL and start fresh, or whether to just stop blogging,  I have made a decision.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank each of you for your continued love, support, encouragement and the inspiration you have given (and continue to give) me over these past five years. It is impart your friendship in this virtual world of blogging that kept me going and gives me the wings to continue to share my journey.

While I am starting fresh with Resilientista Musings – a blog on my new website Resilientista, I'm not quite ready to say good bye to High Heeled Life. HHL will become a creative outlet where I’ll be sharing about Toronto through my camera’s lens and posting about the places, people and things in and around Toronto that help me live a High Heeled Life.

Resilientista Musings  blog will be a continuation of how I’m learning to embrace my new life, and the realizations along the way (oh the stories I'll be sharing); with lots of inspiration sprinkling for self care - mind body and spirit; healthy living, fashion, beauty, travel and everything Resilientista.


Resilientista website - will be a virtual community where women will come together to share and find inspiration, motivation and empowerment for making time for Self Care - nurturing mind, body, spirit -  in their daily life and creating the life they want to live.

Summer in the City - Street Music and Fireworks


















One of the perks of being in a city like Toronto, is that there is always something happening and sometimes you get some unexpected wonderful surprises along the way. An evening that started out catching up with a long time friend over dinner turned into a magical burst of delight.

An after dinner stroll in Yorkville was filled with music from a violinist and if this was not enough, an impromptu decision to go for cappuccino and dessert at the Park Hyatt roof top patio - provided an unexpected view of fireworks from Nathan Phillips Square for the kick off of the Para Pan Am Games.

What I wore: top - White House Black Market; jeans - BlueSpice; wedge shoe - Stuart Weitzman; tote - Louis Vuitton; sunglasses - Gucci; scarf - Raj

What unexpected surprises have you encountered on an evening out?

You are the curator of your life so make it luxurious,

PANAMANIA - Nathan Phillips Square

Toronto has had the honour of hosting the 2015 PanAm & Parapan Am Games and Nathan Phillips Square has been a buzzing hub of energy with, more than 130 different performances from artists including The Roots, The Flaming Lips, Calle 13, Jann Arden, Brigitte Boisjoli, A Tribe Called Red, Lila Downs and many more. Live coverage of the games is broadcast on two large screens and nightly celebration firework displays are eye candy for children and the inner child in all of us.

If you follow me on Instagram, you will have seen the photo of the fireworks from Nathan Phillips Square that I had the unexpected surprise of seeing while sipping cappuccino and enjoying a Crème brûlée sampler on the roof top patio of the Park Hyatt hotel in Yorkville, on Friday evening. Seeing the fireworks brought to my attention that I had yet to make it down to Nathan Phillips Square and take in all the excitement that has been happening there during the Pan Am & Parapan Am Games. 



I'm so glad I made it down to NPS on Sunday ... and so was my inner child!!! There were letters to play in, on and around; games to play; big pink chairs to sit in; and swings to swing on ...






CIBC's swing set includes a special swing for wheel chairs ... so, everyone gets to play!!!


If you live in Toronto or are visiting before August 12 - I highly suggest you come and play at Nathan Phillips Square! And take in all the PANAMANIA fun... 

Have you let your inner child out to play lately?

Staying Cool - Afternoon in the Park



The temperatures in Toronto have been hitting extreme HOT levels. Daily temps staying firm around the mid to high 30 degree Celsius - and with humidity feeling more like low to mid 40s. In the evenings there has not been much relief with temperatures only dipping to high and mid 20s - and humid most nights. Skirts, shorts and sleeveless tops have definitely become the days go to wardrobe pieces, for trying to beat the heat.



 For those who follow HHL on Instagram you may already know my treat of choice for staying cool has quickly become GELATO!! and I even discovered a place that offers a little kick in their gelato choices - with a Tecquila Mojito gelato, which I may or may not have indulged in ...








What I wore : sleeveless blouse - Pink Rose  : skirt - Lilly Pulitzer; sandals - Lilly Pulitzer: accessories: watch - Lucien Piccard; tote - Louis Viutton; sunglasses - Gucci

What are your go to wardrobe pieces when the heat is on full blast?

You are the curator of your life so make it luxurious,
