Straight hair don’t care 😑

I rarely ever straighten my hair.  It’s truly a once in a blue  occurrence but lately it’s been so cold and I find that hats just look better on me when my hair is straight….does that make any sense? Lol 
Another thing I’ve noticed is when my hair is left natural, meaning curly I’ll have people say to me omg your hair is so nice but when I straighten my hair I’ll get wow you look so pretty….🤔 so im not pretty with my curly hair? Yeah….

My hair has been getting extremely  tangled lately which is also one of the reasons I straightened it. The knots I’ve been pulling out are unreal. Do you have any detanglers you recommend? Share please!
Anyway, I cannot wait to share my beautiful white Christmas Tree with you guys. I am so proud lol. 

Hope everyone is having a lovely Wednesday.  

About the other day…

Hello gorgeous people! it’s been absolutely crazy busy the past month as I was moving….something I hope I do not have to do again for a long time. I hate moving with a passion. I haven’t worn make up or even brushed my hair lol as I simply still am unpacked and don’t know where anything is!!! But this week I was asked if I am sick since my face looks different ….rude, right? so I figured it’s time I start looking human again.
Here is a look I did a few days ago. 

And I love what no hair dye has done to my curls!  my hair is healthy again. 
The other day I almost dyed it because all the shades I have underneath are starting to show slowly and it’s driving me nuts but better to have healthy hair than dope colour and fried frizzy mess with stringy curls. 

Miss you all

I believe in pink

Said Audrey Hepburn….. 
I have been mainly wearing neutral and  earth tones lately.  My go to lipstick had been various shades of brown and taupe colours as well as my eye shadows but I decided to change it up a little with this pink look.  

This pink eye shadow is from my BH cosmetics palette (blanking on the name now) but I really love it because I feel it’s perfect for brown eyes. It really makes them pop!

I also have a touch of white shimmer in inner corners. 
On my lips is NYX Merengue lip gloss which will forever be one of my favourites. 

I have been neglecting my blog yet again because I am in the process of moving so with purging and packing I’ve been so busy. 

I cannot wait to finally move in and set up everything and go nuts with home decor. I also am so happy to move in before thr holidays because finally I get to have my white Christmas Tree !!!!

The most gorgeous dresses ! Right here.

Dresses are the first thing I look at for any special occasion, wedding, New Years’ eve but also for work, and other non-fancy events. You can’t go wrong with a dress. There are so many different styles to fit any occasion and body type. With the Holiday Season approaching slowly – I can’t believe Christmas is around the corner! Anyhow, with the festivities approaching upon us, I am featuring some fancy gowns here from edressuk.co.uk

This site has a huge selection of every type of dress and gown you can possibly think of and desire!
Here are my three favourites:

This black lace mermaid style dress is simply beautiful. I love the deep cut in the back and the little brush trail. It is so elegant and definitely a head turner. I normally would choose a pop of colour when wearing all black but I would opt out for plain black bumps and silver jewelry with this dress. Lace and the pattern of it, is such a stand out on its own.

This one is breathtaking. The colour, the style, the fabric, EVERYTHING. Even though, it’s such simple and plain colour, the rhinestones and the tulle fabric make it pop. This dress would be perfect for prom, or any other fancy event. The accessories and shoes options for this dress are endless! For me personally, I love anything that glitters, so I would pair it up with silver glittery shoes, and lots of bling!

If long dresses are not your thing and you prefer to show a bit of leg, you can find short fancy dresses as well.  I am not a big fan of gold (anymore!) but this really caught my eye.
Since the dress is on the fancier side, I’d go with simple nude pumps and a beige clutch and minimal jewelry.

 

Let me know which one is your favourite or check out the website to see more of these beautiful dresses!

Fresh faced


I trimmed my hair a few days ago myself and my curls became alive instantly.  Due to all the damage I inflicted on my hair through the years my hair doesn’t really grow past my collar bone so when I get an inch or two I hold onto it, dry ends and all lol. But I hate when everything is curly then ends hang straight and dead. So I cut it off and what a difference!


It’s better to have short hair that looks healthy than long hair that looks dry and damaged and hangs like a mop. 

So I love it when my curls cooperate I feel like I don’t even need make up, my face looks just  fine lol

This is one of  my takes on minimum make up and natural look on the go. 


Happy Wednesday everyone!

Home decor items I’ve been wanting

So, I never blog much about home decor but besides make up and fashion, home decor is something I truly enjoy! It’s probably my main passion at the moment where I thought about changing careers and going into interior design. 

I do have a particular style which involves a lot of mirrored furniture, crystal, glass, neutral tones and occasional glitter lol. 

I am moving in December and although I don’t NEED anything I definitely WANT a while bunch of stuff. 

I went to Pier 1 and Homesense yesterday and saw some cute items I really want. 

I am totally obsessed with crystal things such as the stand of this lamp. I already have a trey, candle holders like this and this lamp would fit right in. $99 Homesense

To go along with my crystal collection, these decorative balls are everything! $22 Pier 1

These glittery little balls are super cute and only a $1 each from Pier 1 as well. I purchased 2 of these for my coffee table centre piece. 

I also got this from Pier 1 last night too! Although it’s a Christmas tree ornament I don’t plan to use it as such. This can fully be on my vanity or a shelf as a decorative piece. $4.95 each. 

Now, I feel like you will either love or hate this and I absolutely love it! It would go great with my living room theme . It’s  $60 and I’m trying to be cost effective too so I’m not sure if it’s worth that  ugh.  

To add to my glamourous crystal collection lol I really like these glasses but I don’t necessarily need them so they are low on my list. Plus I would probably have a heart attack whenever anyone would drink out of them.

I also really liked this too and I’m not entirely sure what it is bit it’s pretty lol 

Ahhh there were so many beautiful things and I cannot believe stores already have holiday stuff up on the shelves. In my opinion, although some of these items are seasonal I fully think you can use them as every day decor as long as it’s done tastefully!

My Fall 2016 essentials 

Fall is my favourite season and even though it’s very short lived in Toronto I enjoy every minute of it !

Here are my staple items for fall 2016. 

Soft pink wool coat 

I am loving nude tones but then again who isn’t these days? I am obsessed with long wool coats and I just got two gorgeous ones in beige and baby pink. It’s perfect for fall and completes any outfit. 

Suede over knee boots

I used to hate grey  but I absolutely love it now.  Over the knee boots are everything ! This is not just 2016 fall staple but pretty much every year. 

Chokers

Yes chokers.  They’re back with a vengeance. And I went crazy and bought like 50 lol. My favourite is pairing up leather or velvet choker with some bling. 

Bold deep lip 

It doesn’t have to be deep red, browns and purples or even black lipsticks are so popular!

Big comfy sweater 

I love oversized comfy sweater with some tights and sneakers  or even worn as a dress with high boots!

Leather cap 

I also went nuts and got a bunch of these in beige, black, pink and white. You can dress it up or down and works amazing !
Let me know what your fall essentials are!

Gothic look

So,Gothic type of look definitely isn’t my type of style but then again I consider myself to be versatile and so lately I find myself reaching for deep and dark tones.  I know fall time brings that whole look about anyway….

I absolutely love this lipstick. It’s actually a mix of two : Kapow by Colourpop and Dark Cherry by NYX.  Even though they are completely two different textures, Kapow super matte and Dark Cherry creamy and glossy it worked. I got this amazing deep plum tone. 

The second one is NYX turnt up lipstick in wine and dine. Another gorgeous deep red/plum tone. 


Who else never thought chokers would come back? Ugh. Even once they did I thought nope never I will not give in to this trend and now it’s my first accessory I reach for. 

Happy Monday yall. 😋

Favourite fall lipsticks 


Hello beautiful people 🙂 it’s been a long time but I have a good reason for neglecting my blog. I finally gathered the courage and had my wisdom teeth surgery. I am still recovering but I am so relieved that it’s behind me now.  

This is something I have been so afraid of and put it off for almost 10 years!!! But I must say the surgery itself was nothing! The aftermath is worse. It is very painful and uncomfortable but it is to be expected. Anyway, I’m much better and I’m so glad I did it. 
This is my day to day fall time look. It’s quick and easy and suitable for office, running around, or pretty much anything. 
My go to lipstick during fall is Honey love by MAC. It’s a matte lipstick from Toledo collection. It’s a beautiful caramel shade that suits any skin tone. I wear this during the day especially to work. This is the picture above. 

Another all time fave of mine is MAC’s Rebel. It’s such a gorgeous deep red/burgundy shade.

And lastly Trap by Colourpop. It’s from their matte collection. I adore this  muted grey/brown shade. 


I do have some other nudes and burnt orange shades I love to wear during this season but this year I find myself reaching for these 3. 

What are your favourite fall lipsticks?
