Summer Shoe Collection

I have had to kind of dress up this summer, so the shoes that have gotten the most wears are the ones that are appropriate for the dresses (and the two pairs of work pants I own) that I like to wear them with. You guys, because I am trying to be mindful about money,…

Top Ten Makeup Loves 

I am a big fan of anything that will enhance what I’ve already got (without changing my face contours). I like bright colours on my lips and wide open eyes. I like lipstick and mascara. The products you see above are what I call my “full face.” I use mascara, my favorite colour corrector (for…

Personal Style 

Personal style is something that is cultivated over time. As for me, I would say that my style, throughout the years, has grown with me. It’s a style that is very logical and effortless (because I wear dresses 95% of the time – a no brainer), it’s classic in shape, and it’s full of texture,…

Shows I Binge Watch in the Winter

Happy Winter everyone (and Merry Christmas – it’s almost time)! On the first day of winter, I’m bringing you a post that speaks to my semi-quasi-sometimes couch-potato-y ways. As much as I like to go out, there are days where I like to sit on the couch, grab a drink and some popcorn, and listen…

Six Places I Want To See Within Six Years

[source] I haven’t been able to travel nearly as much as I’d like to (whether it’s here in Canada or internationally) and it bugs me. There is so much of world for me to see, and sometimes it feels like there is not enough time to see it. But I am resolved to lay down…

Last-Minute Halloween Costume Ideas

Image credit: Chiswick Rooms Did you get a last-minute invite to a Halloween party? Are you planning on trick-or-treating with your kid(s)? Are you going to bar hop in full-on Halloween garb with your friends? Did you just find out that you’d be the only person at work to not dress up and now you…

Pieces I Want for Autumn/Winter

Online shopping is easy (and potentially deadly for your wallet). If you know what your size is ( your real size, inches and all), then the online shopping space becomes a joyous place that takes away the guilt you might feel when you encounter a face-to-face moment with a teller who looks at you, in…

Five Nail Salons I Need To Try

I don’t want to do my own nails anymore! The thing is, although I own a lot of polish (mostly drugstore stuff in varying colours), I don’t have the patience to sit down, try and steady my non-dominant hand, and get the job done. I just don’t. This revelation has me thinking that a good…

Six Books I Loved This Year

So, as I said in my previous post, I’ve been doing a lot of reading this year. A heck of a lot of reading. So much reading that you’d think my brain would burst, but instead, it expands and makes room for more books. Although I don’t remember every word I’ve read, I remember the…

Bookstores

As you can see I’ve been doing a lot of reading (and writing) lately!

Summer Lips

Even though I like a lot of lipstick at all times of the year, there is something about wearing a bright lip with a breezy summer dress or denim shorts and sandals. Bright lips are a good summer look for me because I hardly wear eye makeup in the summer (too hot) so it brightens…
