I am in the market for a new Winter jacket this season. I don’t mean a fierce snow parka, I have one of those, but more along the lines of a car coat with warmth; something stylish and cool that I won’t freeze my buns off in. My jacket I’ve been rocking for a few years is starting to retire. The buttons fall off every other day and it’s not exactly warm unless I layer loads underneath. I am super tiny so a coat with more structure suits my frame. I can’t exactly do over-sized chic unless I really am trying to look like MK and Ash Olsen circa 2005-2009. This year I am looking for a good basic black coat, a plaid one that is black and white or another mix of neutrals and then for layering, a perfect long down jacket (Roots) for an added layer that might otherwise be missing from a regular car coat. Also great for layering under a leather jacket for added warmth and cool stylistic touch.

Currently Craving: Fall Accessories

Slide1

I love a good add-on. Dipping sauce, side fry, dangly earring and stacked rings, I am in. In the fall and into the Winter months it’s easy to fall into that rut of wearing dark clothing and accessories, mourning the loss of Summer and overall we’re cold here in Canada. But this season I’m going to try my hardest to pump up the volume in my accessories whether they have some colour to them, are statement pieces, or just are aesthetically pleasing to the eye to add some flavour to my most like outfit of black jeans and a black turtle neck. Currently I’m all about the gold. Not just because my nose ring just so happens to be gold, but it doesn’t hurt to match a little. I’m really into earrings right now as well. I have neeeever been an earring person but all of a sudden I’m very down with a dangly beauty hanging from my ear. Since we’re rolling into a darker season I wanted to change up my scent and I have been eyeing this one by Elizabeth and James. I have tried it on a few times at Sephora and then left to see how it blends with my skin chemistry and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it so that’s most likely my next purchase, right after I get my cavity filled. HELLO NO DENTAL COVERAGE! **I’m crying. Details and links below!

1) GLDN Inital Necklace ( “T” for my boy), I’m obsessed with this one’s raw finish and long chain to layer with my other gold chains.
2) YSL Ring, currently on sale at Haute Classics
3) Vintage Vibe Ray-Ban Sunglasses
4) Glossier Generation G in “Like”, because I’m obsessed with their products and this is the perfect pink closest to my lip shade
5) Bauble Bar drop earrings because lately I’m really digging dangly earrings
6) Gucci bag, a girl can dream
7) Shashi cuff with emerald accents for my birthstone
8) Elizabeth and James Nirvana roller ball scent. Tried it in Sephora and this is for sure my scent.
9) Triple layer Keds, I have been dying for a sneaker with some height! (I’m 5’1)
10) Shashi signet style ring, because I’ve been obsessed with trying to find the perfect signet and this is it!

Shades of Summer: Lipstick trends for Summer 2017

Slide1

I’m no a lipstick girl per say, but I love a good lip stain or matte dry colour that stays all day. I don’t like to feel uncomfortable ever, when it comes to clothes or makeup. If I have to feel like I’m checking, fixing and self conscious the whole then it’s not for me.  I do like to add a little pop of colour here or there. I’m also obsessed that the lip gloss trend is back because that is effortless. I think the biggest trends I’ve gotten behind are perfect nudes, an orange(y) hue and the perfect pink pout. Below I’ve listed some that I’m craving to purchase along with some true loves. What do you think you’ll rock on your lips for the rest of summer?

1) The glossiest lips courtesy of Glossier. I am obsessed that the glossy lip trend is back. All I ever wore in junior high was lip gloss, and 9/10 times it would be my Lancôme Juicy Tubes. Now that Glossier is shipping to Canada, FINALLY, I can’t wait to get my hands on a bottle. I was dreading waiting until my next NY trip to pick it up.

2) The perfect nude in a satin matte finish Via Colour Pop. I just placed an order with CP for the first time where I’ll definitely do a product review of everything. I’ve heard amazing things about their satin matte lip formula and Echo Park looks like one of their best nudes they have.

3) Hello luxury lips, try Tom Ford‘s burnt orange called Wild Ginger to go with your best tan this summer. My skin is fair with warm undertones so this burnt orange would work well with that and my dark hair. Where if you were of a darker complexion this may just end up looking like a red lipstick. When picking an orange lippy you must know your undertones and what works or it won’t look like the swatch you see, it may end up changing completely once applied. priming your lips with a foundation will also help the colour pop to wipe out your natural lip colour.

4) The very on trend glitter lips is a must buy from Lime Crime. I’m not sure if I would wear this on the daily, glitter is definitely ‘a look’. I’m a pretty minimalist type gal when it comes to my aesthetic but I would give it a shot depending on the occasion.

5) I got a sample of this Marc Jacobs lipstick and I stand behind this formula 100%. Super creamy and long lasting, everything you want. I will be purchasing this in full size for sure, just need to find the perfect shade as it is around $40.

6) Much like the Maybelline version (doesn’t look like they sell chubby sticks anymore I wanted to link them) these are your everyday lipsticks with a bit better of a a formula. The Maybelline version in slightly drying to my lips I find, where the Clinique Chubby Sticks add hydration. Smooth application and an endless amount of colours to choose from. I freakin’ love these things, so easy to throw a couple different shades in your purse to switch it up when you need to.

7) YSL is a decadent treat to your lips and a chunk out of your pocket book. The bottles alone are super gorgeous and with that price you know the formula has to be good. I’ve yet to purchase a YSL beauty product but it is definitely on my wanted list.

8) Every girl needs the perfect cherry red lipstick. Sephora Collection is super affordable and an amazing formula. Bang for your buck!
