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 and entire book.

Random Wednesday thoughts...

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

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.

Earlier this month I helped out with the 1st yr Fashion Design Orientation at my Uni. I wanted to keep it simple and comfy because I was going to be moving around all day doing different activities. I also went with a very simple face, just clean and fresh!

Summer view


As i'm getting older I've realized that it's hard not to expect things (out of life, family, friends, strangers etc..) Summer is something that I've stopped holding an expectation for because I never really know how its going to play out, how last minute plans will go, or if i'll end up working/ being in class all summer.
This summer I stuck to a little vacation, then a bit of me time, and working throughout. It was pretty good. I don't think it was the best summer ever, but I do think it was a nice 4 months of a good balance of work and play.

Post's are clearly not going to be 5 days a week but I will try to get one every week. Wish me luck in my new semester!

Fading flowers an #ootd




Jacket, Macy's; Top, H&M; Pants, LOFT; Shoes, XXI Forever; Bag, Bloomingdale's
School has just stared but I can already feel the pressure. I'm staying calm and thinking rationally and realistically. I've been managing my time better and working like a mad woman. 

I had to take time out on this day to take an OOTD. I loved my outfit. I was feeling dramatic and wore a little black eye shadow to uni, oh la la. 

This past week and a half-ish has been interesting. Lesson learned so far?....

 "YOU CAN BE THE RIPEST JUICIEST PEACH IN THE WORLD 
 BUT THERE IS STILL GOING TO BE SOMEONE WHO HATES PEACHES" 


amen.
For the record, I love peaches. You're peachy...

Summer Peach


AA polishes are fantastic, they take only 1-2 coats and they usually last a good 3-4 days before they chip (with base and topcoat when you apply) This is just a color that i'm adoring right now, it's bright and fun and different for the summer months. I've been wearing really simple jewelry with a couple of my favorite rings to make getting ready for work quick and easy in the morning.

Family Jewels

Bought this little birdy tier thing from Target.



Cocktail rings are close in my heart. I used to actually wear them in highschool (grade 12). I recently did a clear out of rings that had just gotten too rusty and battered so I thought it would be a good idea to blog about the rings that I kept. I mentioned in my Ring post (read here) that I want to start investing into good quality items of jewelry. I feel though, that statement accessories can be quite expensive to invest in. For pieces like these I plan to stick to good ol' Forever 21. Cheap rings that are tendy and cute and that don't put a dent in that cute little wallet you own.

Here are the ones I've held on to. A good selection of colors and shapes.

Do you guys prefer cocktail rings or more casual ones?

What's in my bag

*I'm completely aware that I carry a lot of stuff..

Is this a tag? I don't actually know. But I do know that I've wanted to post this post for quite sometime. I basically use this bag in every OOTD I do. It's simple, black, from Coach (not on website anymore) and I think it was 70% off when I bought it. Exciting times.

Scroll down to see all the unnecessary stuff I keep in my bag.



My phone, keys, sunglasses, lipstick, wallet, a Chewy bar and 2 pouches.

One pouch has things like hand cream, Advil, band-aids and tide to go, things that I need in case of emergency basically. The New York pouch is from Macy's. In the other pouch I have some random things such as, a pen, notepad, headphones, blotting papers, things that I don't want floating in my bag go into here. I actually did a blog post on this pouch (click here to read it!).

Here are some fancy close-ups!
