MY TOP 5 WINTER MUST HAVES

Winter is my least favourite season. I am not into winter activities or anything that calls to be in the outdoors during the winter season. Getting dressed for these cold and harsh winter months is rather annoying, but when you leave in a country like Canada, well you have no choice but to get used to it. 

Dressing for the season is one thing, but how do you keep your skin from looking sucked out, dry and just drab looking? Well let me introduce you to some of my favourite products that gets the job done. 



1. Glysomed- A trusted name in skincare. This cream is literally magic in a bottle, and it gets the job done. I make sure to keep a smaller sized bottle in my purse at all times. Its a little heavy in texture, however lasts a very long time. This cream ranges from $5-9, and can be found at your local drugstore. 

2. MFE (24 hr Matt Velvet Skin Foundation)- Ive worn this makeup for the last 7 years and nothing has ever came close to taking its place. I've tried so many other foundations, but I keep on coming back to this holy Grail right here. They've recently changed the formula and packaging, and I would love if the foundation was a little more full coverage like the last formula, however it still gets the job done, gives me a radiant smooth finish and not to mention flawless and dewy looking skin, especially through out these cold days. Find it at your local Sephora. $45 will get you 30ml of fabulousness. 

3. Vitamin C Exfoliator (Glow Boosting) - Can I just rant on how amazing this  product is? 
5 Star reviews by almost every customer who purchased. Refresh your dull and tired skin with a boost of Vitamin C. Use this exfoliator at least x2 a week, for a brighter and more radiant complexion. You can purchase this at any Body shop store for $18 a pop. I know it’s a bit on the pricier side however if you won’t regret it! 

4.MAC (Soft & Gentle Highlighter) - Sis everyone loves a good glow! This one is a new favourite of mines. I love wearing a little extra highlight during these drab winter months. Place it on the highest points of your cheek bones, cupid's bow, inner eye duct, tip of nose and your temples. What are you waiting for? Glow along!!! This Highlighter is waiting for you at your nearest MAC store. 

5. Blistex - Not your average lipgloss. A medicated, tingly, minty lipgloss that heals your lips almost instantly from the brutal cold temperatures. I carry one in my car, jacket, office desk and in my purse. Good to have a few on back up as they always seem to go missing. This retails for about $2 and can last you all winter if used sparingly.

Holiday Dress Guide #3

Who said Plaid and Leather didn't go together? Well think again! 
This was my last holiday look of 2018. I can't wait to style these pants even after the holidays. 



Another safe but fun outfit. The leather sleeves on the blazer adds a bit edge to this outfit which is right up my alley, as I'm always looking for ways to incorporate a bit of edge. 



Wearing: Zara-Tartan pants and purse, BCBG- blazer, H&M-earrings, Jimmy Choo-heels, AA-bodysuit

Holiday Dress Guide #2

This was another simple, yet sophisticated look. I love wearing red throughout the holiday season.  (Red is my favourite color)  



Wearing: Zara~ blazer dress, BCBG~ tights & clutch, Oliver peoples~ glasses, Christian Louboutin (so Kates)


I paired some textured tights with this look. These BCBG tights adds a bit of a classy element to this outfit and not to mention super affordable. However, If you're in a splurging mood, a pair of Fendi or Gucci tights can also add a nice touch and might I add wright on trend. 




This blazer dress did not call for too many accessories, a simple studded clutch for a bit of edge, and of course for me sunglasses. I have so many ideas on how to dress up this blazer and I cant wait to share with you guys! Hope you enjoyed how I styled it.. 




bye for now.

Holiday Dress guide Look #1

Happy New Year guys. Finally a new year greets us once again. Time is just flying way too fast. Im not ready! 



I apologize for uploading my Holiday looks after the fact. My goal was to have these holiday posts up, obviously before Christmas, however my laptop battery decided to give out on me after 10 long years together, so I had no way of uploading my content. In life there will be many set backs, how you deal with them is what maters. A new laptop will definitely be on my Christmas list this year. 




Well lets get right into this look. Simple yet so festive with just the right pieces. 


Simple and Easy with not too much effort. 

1. A plaid button up. Nothing screams Christmas like a red plaid top. So easy to wear. For a festive look, pair it with a sequin skirt, fringe/tassled skirt, jeans, tailored pants, and some patent or sparkly shoes. 




As I was going for a more simple look, I decided to pair with light washed jeans, a red thrifted blazer and my not so easy to walk in Louboutin (so Kates)

MY FALL UNIFORM


So every year around this time I bust out the OTK boots, and turtle necks. LOL They're just my go-to pieces. Growing up I hated turtle necks, I cried every time my mom decided to put me in one, especially on picture day. LOL but I'm happy to say I have a new found love for them. Turtle necks make up 40% of my closet. I buy them every year to replace the old ones, that I still have a hard time getting rid of. 



The big buckle and plaid detail is everything. 



Wearing- Zara shorts, turtleneck, jacket

LEOPARD LOOK #2

This skirt was love at first glance! The print, colour and fit was even more spot on in person. (online purchase) I did however had to sz down. I decided to pair the skirt with my OTK aldo boots, which I think, makes it more Fall appropriate. The turtle neck was a no brainer as its been pretty chilli here in Toronto. The mirrored button details on the turtle neck totally pulls this look together. 



I completed the look with my black cat eye sunnies from Aldo. I felt a little parisian wearing this outfit, only thing missing was my barrett.


I'm currently on the hunt for a grey and tan OTK boot. I will be sure to share my purchases with you once I've found the perfect one. Be sure to follow me on instagram as most of my days are spent there. LOL pathetic I know.. but I will be taking you shopping with me via my insta stories. AND don't forget to say hi. I love when you guys sneak a hello in my comments or slide in my DM's with such positive and sweet comments. 



Talk soon

COZY KNITS

Been obsessed with oversized chunky cardigans as of lately. This one in particular had me swooning. I was so drawn to the grid line patterns on this cardigan. The colour is perfect for Fall and can also be paired with literally anything. I however decided to pair with Jeans as I was going for a more laid back look. 





I also paired with a white body suit. Body suites have become such a huge staple in my wardrobe. Wish I owned one for every day of the week. They're such an easy wear and the first thing I gravitate to. The only downside to bodysuits.. well take a  wild guess. You're right!! The torturous trip to the ladies washroom, but that still hasn't stopped me. 




I can't wait to remix this cardigan, so many ideas in mind. I will be on the hunt this weekend for a few more chunky knits to add to my closet. 


Wearing: Winners-cardigan, Zara-jeans, Garage-Bodysuit, Jimmy Choo-heels, Vintage-handbag




Printed cardigans are great for the Fall transition. Stylish and warm at the same time. I'm so happy I was able to grab it at such a good price.

HOW TO STYLE WHITE PANTS


Hey guys. so I get asked this question quite often. How to style white pants, and to be honest there's a million ways. However I decided to show you how I styled my favourite white pants and a few tips that might make the process easier.




COLOURS


White is neutral and can be worn with literally every colour. Think of a blank canvas before it's been painted. Which ever colour you decide upon will pop regardless.



WHAT LOOK ARE YOU GOING FOR?

Next time you decide on wearing a pair of white pants, ask yourself what look are you going for. This is the easiest way to pin point your look and execute it.

My personal favourite, STRIPES! (Gives off an effortless nautical vibe)

Classic look: A crisp white button up, or even leopard/animal printed tops (paired with minimal jewelery)
Vintage Vibe: Polka dots, and a red lip to kill
Sophisticated/ Girly vibe: Floral off the shoulder top, and barely there heels.
Laid back: Flanell/Plaid/Chambray top
Sporty: Plain white tank (or any colour of choice, Leather Jacket (specifically black), Dad hat

Printed Blazer (for a more structured and put together look)

If you're not into any of these prints, then simple Black & White will do the trick, with a pop of colour on the lips and nails.

ACCESSORIES 

Bright yet simple accessories
Gold accessories always does the trick

Last but not least, wearing the right under garments is key. Make sure to wear solid neutral colours. Like nude and black.





FALL INTO TRANSITION WITH THIS EASY FALL TIP

This yellow Jacket needs no introduction. It's in a lane of its own. Although summer is gone, i'ts a great way to keep the momentum going. While most people turn to darker and jewel toned colours towards the fall, I'm all for a pop of colour.

I've always loved the look of edgy and dainty pieces worn together.
Transition your girly/floral summer pieces with a leather jacket to stay right on trend for fall.
Replace your heels with ankle boots once the temperature starts to drop.



This colour is right on trend for the season.  



Wearing

Zara: Everything
