Monday Inspiration No. 6: Mixing Patterns

Hello again loves! I know long time no content. I have no excuse, I just lose track of time and do stupid stuff. Plus my computer is piece of poop and is dying on me, so there’s that. But moving on.
With this weeks inspiration comes with a little bit of an update on my life. Things have changed since the last update… First is the outfit though, because it is too cute to put off any longer.
I really like mixing up patterns lately, especially with a statement skirt. This print is a little different but I love it! I like how it’s a little different, not just your typical floral print. The trick to mixing patterns is to have one very bold one and one more subdued. This is to avoid the two patterns to competing for attention in the outfit. Usually when I wear two patterns, I keep the rest of it pretty low key.
Mixing Patterns!

 

Life update time! I finally finished my first year of college, so go me!!! I passed everything and got it all over with. (Would you guys like to read a post about what I learned? Let me know!) I am working full time and that sucks. But I got promoted so I make more and will have to work less but it does suck working every.
I recently got back into working out and got to the gym. Brendan and I are counting macros and it’s been pretty good so far. Maybe I will let you know how it goes once we get into it a little more. I have seen some progress but it is still a little early to say a full review.
I had dental surgery last week actually. It was  nothing major, I just have stubborn teeth that I have to deal with. But it was my first surgery ever. And I had to get an IV and be knocked out. Which is terrifying. But it was good.
Let me know what kind of content you want because I’ll have lots of time on my hands now and I want to create some great stuff. So let me know!
Hope you guys have a very productive week! Best of luck!

Monday Inspiration No.5: Sweet & Casual

Hi loves! So sorry I missed last weeks inspiration, but it was Easter Monday and I spent pretty much the entire day with family. But here I am again with more inspiration for you this week!
I know this is a little more summery than some people can have right now, but I actually saw this look in the Papertowns movie. I loooved it. So I thought I would A) Try & recreate the look and B) Show you guys that you can inspiration from literally anything. I remember looking up at the older girls in high school and seeing their cool outfits and trying to recreate them at home for myself. Take a look at magazines, covers of books, movies and of course, Pinterest. If you see a look you really like, don’t be afraid to try it out yourself, it’ll work or you won’t. Maybe it’ll help you finally step out of your comfort zone in fashion.

Recently, I’ve been binge watching Girlboss on Netflix and it has totally inspired me to work harder for my dreams, especially with this blog. Sophia overcame so many obstacles and look at her now. She is such an inspiration for the world of girls we live in today, wanting to create their own business and be the top dog. I highly recommend watching it!
Well that was a wordy right up today, but thank you for reading! I’m hoping to do a life update sooner rather than later so that you guys know what’s going on and where I’ve been.
Good luck this week and don’t be afraid to step out of comfort zone guys!

Monday Inspiration No. 4 : Exams

Hi loves! I know this is a late post but I have been studying (well sort of) for my Chem final. My friend also just got back from Australia and I finally got to catch up with her, so I apologise.
I actually saw a girl wearing something really similar to this early today and thought she killed it, so here I am sharing it with all of you to kill as well.
I know it is really casual look but that’s what I’ve been feeling lately for studying. I like the socks and sandals in this case because they are cute sock and should be shown off.

Now to finish up my studying….. sen help…
Best of luck this coming week!!!!

Happy Monday loves! Another Monday means another weekly inspiration! This Monday has already been hellish and it’s only noon.

Spring 2017 Favourites

Hey everyone! I hope you all are well and enjoying the fresh spring air! I know I am finally! Th snow here seems to have finally started to melt away and I can start think about summer. While I have been enjoying the spring weather, there are still days where it is still winter. Luckily, there are a few thing that I have been really into that are helping combat the winter grey that I’m still feeling.

Coconut Leaves Candle 

Coconut Leaves from Bath and Body Works

This scent is actually my favourite scent from Bath and Body Works. My mom got me this candle like 3 or 4 years ago and they finally brought it back. I went and bought like 200 of them. This candle is the best because it makes me think of my trip last year, where I was sitting in a lounge chair, with salty hair, counting my seashells under a palm tree. Basically, just a tropical vacation in a container. Another really great thing is the colour of the candle really pops in such a dirty grey landscape that is Canada right now.

Coconut Leaves

Furla Frames 

I recently got new frames and I looove this ones. I put them on and I went hell, yes these are mine. Shut up and take my money. I like how they are the perfect mix of feminine and classic, which is exactly what I wanted. The inside is a really pale rose pink that brings out the feminine vibes. It is kinda hard to tell, but there is a little cateye to the frames, which I think is just super cute.

Unfortunately I couldn’t find them online. But I got mine form Costco

Guess Jeans

Guess Jeans

These jeans are so great for spring! They feel fresh and unique and just overall just really awesome jeans. I like to roll them up a little bit to show off my super adorable shoes. I like how they are pretty basic blue jeans, but just the added texture and colour from the patch just makes them so much more fun.

I was unable to find these online as well. I know I’m failing this whole blogging game.

Pretty As A Peach Body Wash

Pretty As A Peach

I really like to, with every new season, give myself a new smell that I go to for that season. This spring, I’m really loving the Pretty As A Peach  smell from Bath and Body Works (I know, another Bath and Body Works product. I need to branch out, I know). I use the body wash on a regular basis in the shower and the bubble bath pretty much whenever I take a bath. I really want to get the spray and the body scrum and the body lotion. Basically, I want it all.

Pretty As A Peach

 Steve Madden Shoes

Steve Madden Shoes

YOU GUYS! I saw these shoes like a month ago at Winners/Marshall’s and I regreted buying them. Like you know the commercial. That was me. So much regret. BUT I went back there earlier this week and the single pair that was left were my size. The fashion Gods blessed me with these shoes. I mean they are different, kinda like a shoe mullet. But sparkly and cute and fantastic.

Another mysterious fashion fin that I can’t seem to find. But I tried to find some similar ones.

Gold  Black Snake

Fishtail Braids 

Spring Outfit

As many of you know, I wear my hair in a braid almost 90% of the time. My hair is out of my face and looks somewhat cute (depending on how crazy my day is going) so it’s my go to. But in the spring time, I like to put my hair in fishtail braids instead of a regular old braid. Honestly though, putting my hair in a fishtail braid is usally hit or miss. Some days it looks super cute and perfect. Other days, I  try  3 or 4 times to get it right and it never works. My tip to perfect fishtail braid is to use as dirty, dry shampoo filled hair as you can manage, like on the verge of three days for me. And lots of texture spray and dry shampoo.

And there we have the things that I have been loving for the new spring season! I have been obviously reaching for fresh and fun products to finally get ride of the winter blues. I am so looking forward to all the snow being gone and I can start wearing sandals and dresses again!!

I hope you all have a great spring and enjoy all the lovely sunshine that’s coming your way! Let me know what you guys are loving from spring time!

Monday Inspiration #1: Spring Fever!

Hello everyone! I’ve decided to start something new on here. I took inspiration from Rach Parcell from Pink Peonies  and Wednesdays, she posts new inspirational Polyvore creations, depending on what she is liking and into lately. So I’ve decided to do this every Monday, to start the week off with some inspiration. My hope is that you guys can use this outfit that I make as a guide to style yourself through the week.

This week I have some serious spring fever! All I want is to wear cute summer dresses and shoes that don’t require socks any longer! This outfit in particular is little too spring for the weather I currently have, but I’m hoping to incorporate some of these aspects into my looks this week!
 I hope you guys like this new feature that I’m hoping to do every week! Let me know if this is something you will look forward too or not. I know I am looking forward to creating next weeks inspiration already!
Hope you all have a good week!
