Hat's off an #ootd


Hat & Boots, Forever 21; Sweater, H&M; Pants, Loft


Before I got majorly sick this was a cute little outfit I wore to uni. Really happy with my hat purchase from Forever 21. I also saw a cute navy one at Aldo and I'm not going to lie, I was very tempted.

Toque an #ootd



A mirror OOTD? Leggo.

So long/short story about my cardigan, I bought it in New York City at Beacon's closet, it’s by Asos, and it was originally a shirt dress type of thing. After wearing it for a bit in the summer I thought, this would look so much better as a drape style cardigan thing. It was easy as taking my seam ripper to the front seam and ripping the seam out (redundant).

Paired with my H&M 13$ sweater that I love and that all my friends love and bought multiples of (you know who you are), my Aritzia leggings, and my TNA toque which was also kind of a daily. since I sliced off the visor part of it then sewed it up so it would look like a proper toque.


Sometimes you got to change things up for the better.

To keep me warm in the cold I got on my trusty Zara coat and a scarf that my sister gave me which I believe is from Forever 21.

How’s your weekend going so far?

Virtual Domination, seriously



Since the holidays have rolled around I took it upon myself to grab a treat before it was too late.

I'm obsessed with Nars blushes, I own 3 already and I just finished my Laguna bronzer. The reason I invested in this palette was because not only does it come with Laguna, but the other four blush shades (3 blush, 1 highlight) I don't own! Most of the palettes Nars has come out with I feel like I already own a shade so there isn't any use in buying it in another palette (like Desire I feel is always in a blush palette but I own the individual version) or it comes with Orgasm. I don't like the color of Orgasm or Super orgasm, I think its way WAY too shimmery, but maybe I just feel like that because I’m a matte finish type of gal.

This palette is amazing, you're getting your complete money's worth because all the pans are basically the same size if they would be sold separately. Because I enjoy a matte finish I don't use Miss Liberty to highlight, I use it as an eye-shadow. It works amazing, there is no fall-out and it just looks great on the eyelids. I've even gotten a few compliments on it.

So happy I got my hands on this, such a great investment!

Have you looked at this palette or tried any Nars cheek products lately?

chestnut praline latte CPL an #ootd

Guess Pleather Jacket; H&M Top; Aritzia Leggings; Forever 21 Boots; Kate Spade Wallet

The release of the CPL has changed the holiday season for me. I'm not huge on all the fall Starbucks drinks, but all the winter drinks I love! If you haven't tried this drink...well do it. Keeping it casual with a sparkly top and a pleather jacket.

Skin


A long long time ago I wrote a post about my best concealer ever which was the Glamoflauge by Hard Candy. I haven't bought any other cover up because this one was so amazing. After realizing that I have had this one make up item for almost 2 years I thought it was about time to toss it.

Casually strolling through Walmart I see a new concealer product, one end corrector and the other concealer. I bought it and I love it even more then the Glamoflauge. The Glamoflauge Lite is lighter in weight, more blendable and much easier to work with. It's completely replaced my old concealer. 

Some days, if I’m feeling like not wearing cover up I’ll use a little bit of Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous under my eyes. It’s almost like a tinted moisturizer so it’s super minimal and great for lazy days.




A little bit of GLAM Lite, Verve by MAC on my lips, and Telescopic mascara

Baby, it's cold out an #ootd

Hello all,

Winter quickly approached and all I've been wearing is my Zara coat, it's simple and classic looking, and black, so it goes with everything.

I've kept my knit head accessories in a drawer I don't go into often but, I took out this knot style band to keep my little noggin toasty.

Headknit, Forever 21; Coat & Jeans, Zara; Shoes, The Bay; Gloves, Aldo


Original Scarf by Kachi
My friend who's a year ahead of me in my fashion degree program ( http://kateandkouture.weebly.com ) Made this lovely scarf that I am sporting in the photos above. When she starts to sell them i'll make a post all about it!

Nasty Gal lipstick by MAC


Hello friends,

In extreme style I'm blogging fashionably late.

I have managed to make it though another semester of my high active and intense fashion degree. Earlier this past winter (crunch time at Uni) I ended up catching a bug & missed quite a bit of school and it felt like running a marathon trying to catch up to all the work i'd missed. Good news is that i'm almost 100% and I've finally caught up on the things that I had missed and finished this semester!

It was also my birthday this past week so I treated myself to the three Nasty Gal Mac Lipsticks. Just about screeched when I got the mail. Thought I would do a little review because doesn't the world wide web need another?






Stunner 
The bright, red, is basically like Ruby Woo (the greatest red ever) and because I was running quite low on Ruby Woo I decided to put this in my basket. It’s stunning and basically the same, and so perfect for Christmas.

Runner
The perfect dark red. (Similar to Diva) 

Gunner
This is the showstopper, the perfect purple, I tried searching for a dark purple lipstick in the summer, I didn't want to buy a color that looks like black because that's a little too Gothic for my liking. In the summer I ended up buying the Sephora cream lip stain in 07 and although I love it, it has a little metallic shimmer to it. Gunner is the perfect dark purple, it doesn't look black and it's not pinky what-so-ever. If I only had to buy one out of this collection, this would be it!




Sophia Amoruso is such a power house
Did you purchase any of the collection? What do you like the best?

Okay, time to schedule some posts this week and catch up on all the blogging i've missed

Hatter an #ootd



Hat, Target; Sweater, H&M; Jeans & boots, XXI
It's been getting a little too cold! Fall is most certainly here and the weather has been up and down for days now. The calm before the storm and repeat.

I've been thinking a lot about graduation, not for another 2 years but still something that's on my mind. Scared to finish uni but excited to move on to that new chapter, maybe it will end an entire book.

Random Wednesday thoughts...

Few things before I leave you again..

Polish addict



I picked these bad boys up a while when I was shopping for back to school clothing. These were all 50% off and I couldn't believe that such gorgeous colors were on sale. I'm currently wearing the shade Lipstick and its the perfect red color (not pinky or orangey at all). Makes me feel like a lady when I wear red nail polish. I have yet to wear Mount Royal but I've got to be in a really funky mood to wear a blue!

MAC Fall/Winter Lipstick Pick's


Left to Right
Diva-Matte, Chili-Matte, Rebel-Satin, Verve-Matte

Colors in opposite order from picture above
Hello first day of Fall!
To begin this wonderful season and season ahead I decided to do a little MAC fave lipsticks like I did this summer. I do tend to wear darker colors all year around but especially in the colder months. Diva has to be my favorite though. It's a deep rich red that seems like it would be a stand out on any skin tone. Verve is a great everyday brown color and Chili also falls into that everyday wear category. As you probably have noticed I love my matte finish lipsticks and I believe that Rebel was the first satin finished lipstick I owned. I love this lipstick but on it's own it is slightly too pink for my preference so I usually wear it with a plum lipliner to make the color 1. more matte and 2. look darker.

What's your favorite finish of lipsticks? Do you own any of these lovely shades?

The naked truth

Annabelle Lipliner in Spice, Cinnabar & Demure
Remmel Lasting Finish in Driving me Nude
Remmel Kate Moss Lipstick in 08
Bite Lipstick in Lychee and Musk
MAC Satin Lipstick in Verve 


When I first began to wear lipstick I was never a Nude lover. I thought, whats the point of wearing a plain jane lipstick? A couple years later and I have converted (not completely).. I do prefer to wear a brighter red or pink but throwing a brown or nude in every once in a while is perfectly fine. In the photos above are the only nude lip products I own.
My favorites are the Bite lipstick, though it's not matte I love how it looks over my Annabelle lipliners. I also Love the color Verve by MAC. It's basically the perfect brown shade for me. I could do without the Remmel products but they were a cheap addition to the collection for me to experiment with what formulas I found best.

What is your favorite Nude lip product?

Gray fuzz an #ootd



Sweater, H&M; Leggings, Aritzia; Shoes, XXI


Happy Thanksgiving weekend! This weekend has been filled with homework (sad), food and family. Simple comfy outfit because the weather is getting grayer day by day. Hope you've all had a good weekend and are ready for the leftovers and the work week ahead.

Kimoh-no an #ootd

Top, Macy's; Kimono, XXI; Jeans, Zara; Shoes, Nike

Ever since I bought these Nike's in NYC I've been trying to incorporate them into my wardrobe more. Not only do they give me a break from my Forever 21 booties that I wear in almost every other OOTD I do but they are comfy and still give me maybe an inch more of height.

Really quickly this outfit was put together. I have jeans for days so I brought out my Zara Basic ones and paired it with a lacy black tank and my XXI kimono.

Fall-en an #ootd

Sweater and Dress from H&M



I've been searching a long time to find a sweater like this! Its all knit, only seam is the side seam and the neckline is perfect! the shape is baggy and comfy, basically can be worn on top of anything or paired with a nice pair of blue jeans. H&M is doing it right this season, that's for sure. The heathered white/grey is my ideal sweater color this fall.
