sneaker gang

This post is called sneaker gang because I feel like I am part of a not-so-secret group that loves sneakers. There are so many new sneakers being released and I am creating a mental wish list as I type this. To me, sneakers are a must have shoe because there are so many different styles; trendy, skate, running, casual, etc. I remember when sneakers first made an entrance into the market as being ‘fashionable’ and you could wear them with your everyday clothes, not just with workout apparel. Since then, new styles are being dropped on the daily.

My fav sneakers that I own are the classics; Adidas, Converse and Nike. They are all the black and white colourway ones, because aesthetic, duh. Also because they pretty much match whatever I wear. I have the Nike Theas, Adidas Originals and Leather HiTop All Stars.

The Wishlist

I’m hoping to get to a Foot Locker on the 26th, so I can snatch up the Puma Creepers. As soon as I saw the Ad for them on Facebook, I died. I never imagined myself liking a pair of creepers but the mix of suede and colourway is just so pleasing to the eye. The vans come in a close second on the wish list. I either want the hi tops or the low top in a light, pastel colour.

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.

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.

[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

Friday Favs

Today’s Friday Favs will be a little different because I will just be talking about one item in particular because I have been wearing them almost everyday. Drumroll please… this item is a lace bralette. I have quite a few different styles and colours in these and I LOVE wearing them. I wear them around the house, if I don’t feel like putting a real bra on (we’ve all been there) and I wear them when I’m going out. They are so comfy and add a super feminine touch to your outfit. It also looks really cute when it’s peaking through your top. All of mine are from Aerie because they seem to sell the largest product range. There are so many stores that sell lace bralettes so I suggest you grab some!

I’ll share a couple pictures of the ones I have but I’ll leave some links below on where to find some other really cute ones. The great thing about Aerie is that they sell these bralettes through every season and they come in so many colours, bright neons for summer and darker hues for fall/winter. They have some with padding for days where you are wearing it out or if you just want the support and ones without padding for lazy days or for smaller chested women.

Some other stores that sell too cute to be real bralettes are Aritzia, Urban Outfitters, Nasty Gal and so many more. Let me know where you have bought you’re fav bralettes from in the comment box below! Happy Friday!
