Tote It With You

Hello Darlings, nothing compares to an attachment that a woman has to her purse. When I say that my whole life is in it, I am not joking — it really is. Our purses are gateways to all of our “secrets”! This is exactly why snooping through a woman’s purse should be a punishable crime.

The increasing power of Instagram hits home today as the popular Dutch photography website SydneyFrancisco.com featured one of my looks on their OOTD Magazine instagram that has a staggering 422,000 followers! Within minutes, my look received 5,000 hearts and more than 100 people started following my own @MartaTryshak instagram.

#WithLoveAmber

Hello Darlings, with clear skies and warm weather, #WithLoveAmber wine tasting party was perfect start to what should be a very festive summer season! With great company and delicious Californian Malbec courtesy of Red Rock Winery, I had the pleasure of hosting roughly a hundred guests at the cozy Amber Lounge in Yorkville. Amber Lounge is one of my favorite Toronto patios, especially for late night cocktails on warm summer nights. Co-hosting the special event, Red Rock Winery brand ambassador Jennifer Smith-Vaillancourt introduced everyone to the California Malbec wine and answered questions from guests. Red wine is a personal favorite, so it was a…
