Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but gold is a girl’s most reliable friend. Tried, tested, and true, it never goes out of style and can bring elegance to your outfit, home or beauty routine.


The more I look, the more I notice gold touches everywhere. During a recent trip to Toronto, I visited the Prince of Wales Hotel in Niagara-On-The-Lake for afternoon tea. Surrounded by gold wallpaper, candlesticks, photo frames, and delicate teacups, I sipped and snacked the afternoon away.

After working multiple 60-hour workweeks, I checked out of chaos and checked in at White Oaks Conference Resort and Spa. I left my work (my iPhone) in locker number three, and melted my stress away with a deep tissue massage.

The Rag & Bone Newbury boot is undeniably cool in any colour or print, but is show-stopping in gold. These have been on my “lust list” for a while now; they would go perfectly with a simple jean jacket and a light summer scarf.

An easy way to incorporate gold into your outfit is by using gold jewellery; for extra bling, combine it with a gold article of clothing.


I hit the jackpot when I discovered my new favourite thrift store score: a vintage charm and chain gold-coloured bracelet.



I haven’t been able to bank much beach time lately, so Lise Watier’s new Bronzing Powder will have to hold me over until I get some fun in the sun. If you are looking for easy ways to incorporate gold into your beauty routine, also try gold nail polish, eye shadow, or eyeliner.

Magnum Gold?! is rich vanilla bean ice cream with a sea salt caramel swirl, dipped in a golden coating made with thick Belgian Chocolate. New Magnum Gold?! As good as Gold.
