The days ahead (exciting news!)

I have some extremely exciting news to share with you all. As you know, I am studying fashion management in Toronto (Humber College), and I got the amazing opportunity to study abroad in Aberdeen, Scotland (RGU) for part of my third year!!!!! I am beyond excited. like it really does not feel real. I have never been to Europe, so of course I’m going to be doing some travelling before I go to school.

My first stop is London, then taking the train to Paris, flying over to Rome (I’ll be there for my 20th birthday!), then over to Germany and finally to the last stop, Scotland. I’ll be doing so many things and each day will bring something new. I can’t wait to share my days with all of you! I bought a new camera so my pics will be extra fleek and I’m going to try to vlog my trip and make a few videos as well.

Make sure you’re following me on Instagram @hungry4style_ to keep up with all the action. I seriously cannot wait to take outfit pics beside the Eiffel Tower or down a cobblestone path in London. Also, if you have any places to eat, shop or see in any of the places mentioned above, please, please share in the comments below or on my Instagram.

 I’m so excited to share this journey with all of you and I hope you like the posts!!

My Necklace Collection | Part One

I thought I would do a different type of post today and show you my necklace collection. I am pretty nosy and love seeing what is in people’s closet or makeup collection. I’m going to split this post into two parts; my statement necklaces and my everyday necklaces. I want to share how I wear them and why I love them. I have a lot more silver then gold because I find silver goes with a lot more colours and outfits. Hopefully this gives you some new ideas on how to wear your necklaces!

So here are the statement necklaces I have on rotation. Be sure to head over to my Instagram to see these necklaces in action!

 This is the ultimate statement necklace and I usually like to wear it with a plain tee or flannel. All the attention has to be on the necklace, duh. I like the edgy, rocker vibe it gives off. This one is from Aldo.

This is my latest addition and I am obsessed. Like I said in my Instagram post, I feel like an Egyptian queen when I put it on. I think wearing a white top looks amazing with this colour of gold. Or maybe I feel like a tanned goddess when I wear it. This one is from Dynamite.

Apparently coins are the new thing in necklaces and apparently I am obsessed with them. This necklaces is a little toned down but still grabs most of the attention when wearing it. It fits a bit tighter on the neck so it is kind of like a chocker style. I wear this necklace a lot, with dressy tanks, tees, dresses. This one is from Express.

The necklaces reminds me of the chains that members of punk rock bands wear, and I’m kind of digging it. This one is also pretty toned down so it’s really easy to style with, you can basically wear any shirt. This one is from Dynamite.

 I have worn this one quite a bit and I love the layers of thin chain, it adds a cool draping effect. It’s pretty simple but adds a lot of cool detail to your outfit. Recently, I actually wore this necklace hanging off a pair of distressed, black skinnies and I LOVED IT. I saw Gigi Hadid wear it as one of her festival looks and I died. I came back to earth and am obsessed with doing it. This one is from Express.

Ways to Wear: Denim Shorts

Summer is near it’s end but there is still a lot of time to enjoy summer outfits. Soon enough we’ll have to pack away the shorts and bring out the pants. Until that day comes, I wanted to share a few ways to style denim shorts. There are so many looks to go for this season; boho, 70’s, sexy night out, tomboy, etc. I hope you enjoy these looks and even re-create some of them!

 High-waist, distressed denim shorts are always my favourite type of shorts to wear in the summer. So many stores sell a lot of different styles and washes, leaving endless possibilities. I showed some tops, accessories and beauty items to wear with each outfit. Screen Shot 2015-07-28 at 2.51.55 PM

Day to Night Outfits

I bought this romper a few weeks ago and haven’t worn it yet. Story of my life. Mostly because I didn’t have anywhere to wear it too, as I thought it would be a ‘going out’ romper. But I’ve wanted to wear it sooooo badly and I thought that there must be a way for me to style it for during the day (casual). The first idea that came to mind was add some sneakers and wrap a flannel around my waist. Turns out, it really dressed down the romper and now I can wear it to run errands or go for lunch. I then realized that I also do want to be able to wear this out into the evening, maybe for some drinks or a walk downtown. Here are my versions of a day to night outfit with only making a couple simple and quick changes. This could also work for your LBD that’s been hanging in your closet with nowhere to go. Hope you enjoy!!

DAY IMG_5143 IMG_5203 IMG_5214

 Really simple, minimal jewelry and light makeup. IMG_5249

NIGHT

 To create the ‘NIGHT’ look, I chucked my sneakers and flannel to the side, added a bold lip, put my hair half up, added a simple necklace (because I didn’t want to overpower the lace detailing on the romper) and put on some comfy block heel sandals. IMG_5351 IMG_5367 IMG_5371

I think these two looks are total opposites and buying pieces that are versatile like this; are great for a busy lifestyle and your wallet.

Friday Favs + Mini Review #shapematters

So, this week’s Friday favourites is just going to be one product but I swear to god this product is so amazing it takes the place of like 5 other products you have in your makeup collection. If you don’t know, I’ve started to get more into beauty and makeup products and I want to bring that into my blog. Much like fashion and clothing, makeup is a way of having fun and trying new things. It’s not about disguising yourself or trying to be something you’re not. It’s about doing what makes you happy and feel good! Enough rambling and let’s get to the good stuff.

IMG_5061

This week I’m talking about the new Smashbox #ShapeMatters palette. If you follow me on Instagram (which you should) then you have seen a couple posts where I rave about how amazing this product is. This product contains 2 eyebrow powders and a wax, 4 contour and highlight shades and 9 eyeshadow shades, oh and a double ended brush for the eyebrows and eyeshadows. This palette is honestly so multi-purpose, it’s amazing. Every single colour in this palette is amazing and can be used for day or night makeup looks. The colours have great pigmentation and they blend very easily. I’ve been using this palette like every single day since I’ve bought it and the colours last so long on the skin. The palette is $69.00 on Sephora.com and it is SO worth the price. I’ve been wanting to buy the contour palette and sticks from Smashbox but have held off since they are a little pricey. So as soon as I heard about this palette, it was a no brainer that I needed it.

Now we’re getting to the real good stuff; swatches and pictures.

Left to right, top to bottom:

[BROW] eyebrow wax, taupe and soft brown

[FACE] contour, bronze, highlight and glow

[EYE] vanilla, totally nude, champagne, stripped, posh, platinum, sumatra, aubergine, blackout

I’ve been loving wearing ‘GLOW’ as a highlight and ‘HIGHLIGHT’ to set my under eye concealer. Oh the irony. I use ‘CONTOUR’ everyday to, you guessed it, contour. It gives a really natural looking structure to the face, unlike some other powders that look to orange or unnatural. I haven’t gotten around to using the darker eyeshadow shades but I have used almost all the lighter ones and I love them all.

If you haven’t gotten the hint already then what I’m trying to say is that you need this palette. Even if you’re a beginner to the makeup world (I still consider myself one), this is a great multi-purpose palette to get you started. If you are usually unsure about buying palettes because of the price or maybe you won’t use a couple shades, like myself, this palette will seriously amaze you and it is definitely worth the price. For me, I took into consideration that I wanted to buy the trio contour sticks from Smashbox and those alone are $52, this palette was only $17 more and I got 1 more contour shade, 9 eyeshadows, a brush and 3 eyebrow products. If that’s not a great value, I don’t know what is.

Wishlist…Book Edition

A lot of people know that I don’t like to read unless it has to do with fashion. This mostly includes magazines, but over the past year I have come across and read some really good books under the realm of fashion and blogging. Recently, I went to Chapter’s and I saw a few books that I need to buy, as in I need them right now. I have heard about all these books but have never looked at them in the flesh. I think the Summer is a perfect time to catch up on some reading you’ve been too busy for. I can’t wait to buy these and sit outside on a sunny day with some Starbucks and start reading! If you have read these books let me know what you think in the comments!

Friday Favs

Back again with another favourite of this past week. For a while now there is a huge trend on the ‘mirrored’ sunglasses and I have fallen victim to it. The brand Quay Australia is a huge name this summer and it seems that everyone (including the hottest celebs) has a pair. I don’t blame them because they are SO nice. I recently got a pair of mirrored sunglasses from Express and I have, no joke, not taken them off since I bought them. Even when I don’t actually need to wear them, I hang them on my shirt.

 I love the retro style of these sunglasses mixed with the modern trend of the super mirrored sunglasses. Funny story, I used to hate mirrored sunglasses but I have now changed and have fallen in love with them. These pics are from my Instagram so don’t forget to follow me over there, too!Screen Shot 2015-06-19 at 3.39.38 PM
