My obsession with vanities

I absolutely love a beautifully set up vanity. I am not showing mine here today as I am in the process of changing the table but I often browse for ideas and I had to show you 4 of my favourite vanities. 
I love the elegant and classy look. Not cluttered either. 

These are in no particular order as I love them all! 

My bedroom is actually white/grey/silver with turquoise accents. This would fit right in.

This set up looks so regal. Simplistic but such a statement piece of furniture. 

You can’t go wrong with black. It’s so classy and this vanity also has plenty of storage space. 

This is just so beautiful. Super girly but still elegant. 

As you can see, there’s a theme here. Glass vanity (with an exception of black one).  I am a sucker for anything glass. Glass furniture pieces, glass accents, etc. 

Once I set up mine I’ll share it here.

A few summer outfits

Hey my loves! I hope your week started amazing. I can’t believe it’s almost end of July already! Anyhow, I haven’t posted in a minute so here are a few of my recent outfits. 

This is one of my favourite dresses. I love the pattern of it. But, it’s really stretchy and super comfy. 

I have also been into these loose dresses that don’t have a shape to them. I never liked these kind of dresses before as I found them to be not very flattering but it depends how you wear them really. 

I also think the colour is gorgeous and it’s silky so perfect for summer. Light and airy. 

This third outfit is a simple white pants and a white tee with the bronze detail. 

I also have been into just simple tees with a basic design on them. You can really make them look nice depending on what you pair them up here. 

I opted out for flats with each of these. 

These gold ones are my go to. They are so comfortable and I can run a marathon in them. 

The silky white ones are super cute too but yes they do get dirty fast. That’s the only downfall.

Summer ’16 must haves

I feel like 2016has been a year of less is more and simplicity is really in. This has been true when it comes to make up as well as wardrobe. These are 5 of my 2016 summer must haves. 

I am all for getting dolled up but I think 2016 has been , minimum eye make up, only brows and lashes, highlighter and a lipstick of choice. 

Nail art kind of went out of style as well and simple, white polish has been the go to choice. 

In terms of clothes, every day choice is jean shorts , tank top and slippers. 

1. Sunscreen 

Well this isn’t just 2016 Summer must have its really any Summer or any season for that matter. 

2. Sunglasses

This one is a Summer must have period. Besides being useful it’s a fashionable choice too. I always have a pair of shades in my bag. 

3. Slippers

I’m not talking about flip flops as you can see but actual slippers. They can be simple or a bit more fancy. I love these Hermes ones. 

4. Strappy sandals

Even though they are flats they can make any outfit dressy because of the straps. Call them gladiator shoes, strappy shoes, call them what you want, but you need to have a pair. 

5. Distressed jean shorts

Everything distressed is in now. Best thing you don’t even need to buy them. You can make your own. 

Anyway. This is what I find myself in these days. And although it sounds casual you can actually make it look really nice. 

Pair up your Jean shorts with any colour tank top, strappy sandals, bright coloured lips and your shades and you’re good to go! 

Tell me what your Summer must have is!

Have you noticed that lately my make up looks have been getting more and more simplified? That’s because it’s humid and sticky and who wants to wear make up when it’s like that and worry about it sliding down your face? Not I. 

Highlight is poppin if I may say so myself lol

Eyes: Kat Von D Tattoo eyeliner / Rimmel London Scandaleyes Mascara

Face: Bobbi Brown liquid foundation in Warm Beige / Colourpop highlighter in Wisp

Lips: Gerard Cosmetics Enchante lipstick 

A lot of you ask me what lashes I wear. Honestly, they aren’t a fancy brand, they are simple lashes from dollar store for $3. Yup!

Electric blue

 I shared this jump suit before but every time I put it on I fall in love with it all over again, so why not share a second time? I adore the colour, it’s extremely comfy and gorgeous. 

This is a Michael Kors jump suit I found at Marshalls for only $50. It’s a great deal. 
You can dress it up or down, really depending on what shoes you choose to wear with it. 

Today I have decided on these Marc Fisher wedges which are really light and my feet can endure all day. Plus they are a nude/beige shade so they go great with any outfit. 

Jumpsuits and rompers is something I love to wear and will never go out of style for me. 

How do you guys feel about one piece suits?

Lilac flush FOTD

I hope everyone’s had an amazing long weekend! I can honestly say I got some good rest and relaxation. I’ll share a few pics from cottage life but before all that, here’s a look from back to work life. 

Purple is my favourite colour and I love pastels so this lipstick is definitely one of my faves. It’s Lilac Flush by Maybelline. 

I think when I wear anything pastel, whether it’s make up or clothing, I need to be a little tanned. Otherwise it really doesn’t look nice. 
The rest of the make up details:

Face: Vichy dermablend foundation/ MAC warm soul blush

Eyes: Dior purple revolution eyeshadow palette/ Marc Jacobs gel liner/ Tarte Camera Lights Lashes mascara

Eyebrows: Anastasia dip brow pomade in chocolate brown. 

I had the best boat ride ever!

Amazing view from the cottage 


So gorgeous. I could live there!

Black and white 

It’s almost weekend time and that’s especially good news since it’s long weekend here in Canada. 🇨🇦 I hope the weather cooperates. Here’s a professional office look but still chic and modern. 

I took a few different pics but ended up liking NONE so that’s why I have only one photo to share and shoes got cut off as well. Hmm …😞

Anyway , even though both the skirt and shirt have different patterns and designs going on , it goes together and I love pairing up things like this that don’t look like they should go together but do! 

I promised a giveaway when I reached a 1000 subscribers and next post will feature all the info! Stay tuned✌🏼

The other day…

Here’s a simple but cute casual look with just a jean dress and gladiator sandals. This is comfortable to just chill out in and be out and about all day and it’s chic and sexy. 

I do love any kind of strappy shoes. It just adds a little something extra especially when wearing a dress or a skirt, even shorts. 

These do tie all the way up but I chose to keep them lower with this outfit. 

Dress: Winners

Flats: Urban Behaviour
Do you guys like strappy shoes? I know they can be annoying as strings tend to roll down.😦

Don’t you love it when you have a good hair day?

I hate it when my curls don’t cooperate. It can literally make me feel so miserable because no matter how long you spend on finessing them they’ll still do their own thing. Yesterday was a good hair day!

I have been using Ouidad leave in conditioner for curly hair as well as their mousse. I love both. I still swear by Shea Moisture products but Ouidad stuff has been working well lately so that’s all I use on my hair. These 2 products. 

My hair got pretty damaged when I changed my colour to lighter but it’s coming back slowly. Of course I have coconut oil to thank to. It’s still a long way to go until it gets back to its natural state but at least it’s not fried and stringy anymore. 

Anyway, another cool thing I’ve discovered for bouncy and light curls is washing my hair with baby shampoo. I know I know. Am I the only one??? 

I randomly tried it a few weeks ago and I love how it makes my hair feel and look. Not to mention it smells amazing. 

My hair just feels so clean and it gets rid of the product build up. Which in return makes my curls feel and look lighter, more alive and bouncy. 

Has anyone done this? Do share!
