Niagara River, Niagara On The Lake, and the smallest chapel in the world


Continuing our journey of discovering Ontario from this last post where we visited the Niagara Falls, after seeing the beautiful falls and taking a boat ride into them, our cousins took us to see many more beautiful parts around Niagara, starting with the Whirlpool Bridge, named after this whirlpool in the river.

We then stopped at a few scenic lookouts along Niagara river.


We discovered stairs going down into the forest at this lookout, and followed them!


Being a historic site of a war martyr, there was a canon marking the spot.


We stopped at this beautiful, and most possibly, the world's tiniest chapel, on the way.


And lastly, we visited a serene and calm lakeshore of Lake Onatrio, in Niagara On The Lake, a where you can sit for hours and gaze at the water.

Lavender and Gold




Dress: Dynamite
Earrings: c/o Stradivarius
Necklace, Bracelet: c/o I Am
Watch: Vintage
Shoes: Kate & Mel

It was a beautiful day in Mississauga to wear this gorgeous lavender dress. The sun was shining and there was a cool breeze blowing. I love the cut and simple design of the dress, and of course, the beautiful color. The material is nice and light so it's great for summer. I accessorized with golden jewelry as the combination of gold looks great with purple shades. So a hammered gold necklace, a simple chain bracelet, heart-shaped earrings and my vintage watch compliment the dress. I chose to finish the look with these ankle-strap pumps with it as the dress' hem is higher than my knees, so the ankle-strap doesn't shorten my legs, and the heels are dressy and feminine too, adding to the whole look.

On another note, just a week left for my holiday here in Canada. You'll be seeing a few more travel posts and then it's back to the outfit posts!

Stay stylish!

Liquid Emerald: the Niagara Falls


So we finally did it.. we went and saw the Niagara Falls. It's impossible to capture this behemoth of water on camera, but we tried. We approached the falls from the end where we could see the USA Falls, which are smaller and man-made. It was weird to be standing on this end knowing that just across the falls is Buffalo, New York.

And as we walked we caught a glimpse of just the mist rising from Niagara Falls, and then we saw the entire magnificent waterfall itself.

The whole panorama of both falls on Niagara river.

Liquid Emerald waters
We saw quite a few rainbows!

And lastly, we went on the Hornblower Cruise that takes you very, very close to the curtains of the waterfall.

All ready with our waterproof ponchos to go aboard the Naigara Cruise!
