He asked, She said Yes!

December was an extremely busy month, work and more work (as I put in extra hours) and with the Holiday Season I felt like their wasn't enough hours in the day. When I neglect my blog I feel like I've missed my best friend. But December was also a fantastic month because my boyfriend of 9 years asked me to become his better half...on December 18 he took me for a tour of the city, Toronto, and all our firsts. Our first encounter, our first date, first kiss, you get the idea...and I loved it! As a couple we travel alot and 2010 was a year full of travel to far away places. So, I always assumed he would propose on one of those vacations. But, I was pleasantly surprised when he asked on our homefront because at the end of the day Toronto is home for both of us. The city where we were both born and raised, love this city!
This past December was also my blog's 3rd blogiversary and I can't thank you enough for visiting my blog and support. Also, a big thank you to all the companies and public relation reps for their invitations to events in the city and the "loot" they send my way. Thank you!
Also, hoping to have a few changes around here. Mostly expect more wedding related posts but I also wanted your opinion:
(1) add a wedding related series to my blog
(2) create a wedding related blog
Let me know in the comment section!
Happy New Year!


  1. Congratulations Monica!

    I personally prefer to see a separate wedding related blog. That way it'll be an easy reference for those who are planning a wedding, if they're not that interested in the beauty-related stuff that we're all obsessing about. :P


    9 years... wow! that's an accomplishment, for sure :)

    i vote for creating a wedding related blog. then when your wedding's done, morph it into something else? not sure what, though... either way, i'll be reading it!

    i've always been fascinated with weddings :p

  3. Thank you ladies! I was leaning towards a separate blog as well & maybe morphing into "our first place" together. I guess my travel blog goes back to the burner LOL!

  4. Congratulations!!! Planning a wedding, especially in Toronto, can be really super fun. Welcome to the engaged club ;)

    I also vote for a separate blog!

  5. Congrats! The way he proposed sounds really sweet and romantic!

  6. Congratulations, Monica!! What a lovely way to receive a proposal! Props to your fiancé for his thoughtfully romantic approach!

    Happy New Year, and happy planning! xoxoxo

  7. ahhh! so wonderful. congratulations! xx

  8. Congrats on your engagement, darling!
    Happy New Year and Happy Blogiversary too!


  9. Congratulations! That is absolutely fabulous. I am new to your blog and love it. I vote for the addition of a series to your current blog and it would make sense with your busy schedule. I can't wait to read more. Cheers to a fabulous 2011!

  10. OMG Monica how exciting, congratulations doll!! xoxo

  11. CONGRATULATIONS! Cheers to 2011 for you and your fiance. I can't wait to hear/read about all your planning.

  12. Hun, the proposal sounds amazing!!! What a creative way to do it...and also so sweet :) Can't wait to see which dress you choose! xoxo

  13. Love love love the engagement story!! So sweet and so thoughtful! Congrats to you both and I'm so excited for you :)

    I love your blog and I think adding a wedding series to your current blog would be great! You usually feature both beauty and fashion related posts so I don't think a wedding series would be too far off. Plus, it's def. waay easier to handle with your hectic schedule!


  14. Thank your everyone for the well wishes!!
    As for the separate blog...kinda created a template (playing around) & still undecided if I'm going to use it. But the name has been decided...still a secret:)

  15. Congratulations! This is so exciting! Being engaged is so much fun!

  16. oh my goodness!!!! Congratulations!!!
    Such exciting news!
    Marriage is awesome. When you commit to someone else and love them unconditionally it makes you a better person ...I learn a lot from my husband:)

    Wishing you happy wedding planning!

  17. Congratulations!

    Have set a date yet?

    But, more importantly...let's see the ring!

    cheers - from a recent follower of this great blog!

  18. Congratulations! I would love to see your wedding related stuff here on this blog. I think it would fit in perfectly!

  19. Thanks again!! I'm still stuck between incorporating the bridal series on my blog or making a separate page. I'd keep my email & twitter account as is but just a separate blogspot site. I guess it'll also help with me organizing the wedding...more of an inspirational bridal blog. No reviews or such...

  20. Congrats, Monica. Curious mind would want to know more details about how he proposed lol

  21. :-)

    Ainda não sabia desta parte romântica!! Que bonito!! :-)

    Parabéns aos dois! Adoro-vos!
