Lingerie 101 With Rachel Avery of Kallone Intimi

I’ve always had an affinity for lingerie. Something about intricate lace, smooth satin, and delicate fishnets really puts me in touch with my feminine side. While walking in Toronto’s West Queen West neighborhood I found there was always one store that instantly stopped me every time I’d approach it.

The mannequins in the display window of Kallone Intimi have a sultry, mesmerizing quality about them.  They definitely live up to the store’s name, meaning “beauty” in ancient Greek. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner I decided who better to teach me a few things and get me in the spirit than store owner, Rachel Avery.

The Lust List: January 2016

Hey everyone! I’m starting a new segment of Love, Mirian called “The Lust List”. It’s a curated collection of items or brands I’m really feeling at the moment. I’m always discovering new things that I like so rather than keep all this coolness to myself I thought it would be a great idea to share them with you. This group is all about elementary school nostalgia, strong women, and puffed up extravagance. Here’s what I’m feeling these days:

Surviving the Holidaze Pt 4

Wow, can you believe it’s the end of 2015 already? WE MADE IT! This is one of the first years in my life that really felt as if it went by quickly. (I think it’s partially due to meeting and growing together with my blog partner who helps me keep the gears of this lil machine turning LOL.) This year has been far from perfect. I’ve had setbacks. I’ve had plot twists. I’ve changed paths and entered new lanes. Old relationships fizzled out and new ones blossomed.

I’ve had various blogs in the past but I’ve never been as serious about blogging as I am now and I really owe a HUGE thank you to you guys for keeping me focused over these past three months. You may not know this but when you guys come by regularly, hit the like button on my posts, start following me, or leave a comment, it inspires me to keep going. I don’t wanna get mushy but you guys really have touched me. All of you. From Canada to Costa Rica. South Africa to Spain. Thailand to Trinidad & Tobago. Read more

Surviving the Holidaze Pt 1

This time of year can be so crazy! Holiday parties at work and family festivities galore. This is the season for socializing and we all wanna look our best but the last thing anyone wants is to be stuck in the mall looking for a cute outfit among herds of other shoppers. Don’t worry, boo. I got you. I’ve put together a four part series to help you slay the holidays. The best part about it is you can get each look from just one store so you can get in, get out, and get back to what matters…


Do you have an outgoing, energetic personality? Have you ever danced on a tabletop? Does your hotline stay blinging? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions then this look is for you.
