All my life I have known Valentines Day to be a day where you should show endless amounts of love to the people in your life; your mom, dad, sister, brother, grandparents, friends, dog, boyfriend, girlfriend, co-workers and hey, even strangers. I know a lot of women get sad when this day rolls around because they don’t have a date, I’m here to say that doesn’t matter… AT ALL! What matters most is that you LOVE YOURSELF and that you surround yourself with love. I really want this message to get across to women and young women around the world because it is such a waste to be sad over your relationship status. It just isn’t worth it.
That being said, I wanted to give a list of things to do on Valentines Day (and every other day) that can show love towards others and yourself (and they are fun to do, duh!). Comment below what you’re favourite thing is to do on Vday. Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram via @hungry4style_
- go to Starbucks and order your fav drink and chocolate brownie (mmmm, dreaming of this right now)
- buy cheesy valentines cards and give them out to your family, friends and co-workers
- go to the spa! Treat yourself with a mani/pedi or facial
- make reservations at a super classy restaurant (with your best friend, sister or significant other), buy an entire outfit (heels to earrings) and get all dolled up (it’s like the adult version of playing ‘dress up’)
- hit up the grocery store, buy some chocolate cake mix, frosting, red food colour, candy hearts and bake up a storm (it’s even better when they’re ready to eat)
- order pizza, wings and that super garlicky and cheesy bread that you love, oh such much, and watch a marathon of Friends on Netflix
- go to the florist and buy your favourite flower and pick out a cool vase while you’re there
ENJOY!! AND HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!!

Let me start off by saying that wearing these jeans on a day where the weather was like -100 degrees, was a horrible idea. I do it for the fashion and I’m sure many of you can relate..lol (especially my fellow Toronto/NYC bloggers).
Lately, I’ve been liking the idea of wearing oversized layers, and it helps when the weather is extremely cold. It’s fun to mix up patterns, fabrics and textures to create a look with depth. I’ve worn this tank and sweater combo before, with leather leggings, but this time I wanted a more grunge/loose/casual style. And what bottoms came to mind? BOYFRIEND JEANS.. DUH!! The bagginess of the jeans and the size of the rips played into the style I was going for. I had to throw on a hat or else I think my head was going to freeze off so I hope you like my ‘salt and pepper’ matching.. ha..ha…
Lately, all I’ve been wanting to wear is basic tees, leather leggings, skinny jeans, long cardigan and layered outfits. It may have something to do with the fact that it is freezing outside and I have to admit, it’s hard to put outfits together in the winter. If it’s icy outside, you have to wear shoes that won’t slip or get ruined by the salt and you have to cover every inch of your skin so you don’t get frostbite. Needless to say, winter sucks sometimes!
When getting dressed in the morning, I realized that I don’t really have the basics that I need. I’ve been looking online for what I want and I thought I would share with you guys some winter basics to have if you live in a cold climate, like me. Of course, make these basics your own style and choose colours you love, shapes that suit your body and layer how you like.

TBH, I am in love with this look. The texture of the sweater mixed with the pattern of the flannel is my favourite. I could probably wear layers like this almost everyday. When I am getting dressed in the morning I sometimes have to remind myself that I have already worn the button-down and sweater combination three times this week already. Maybe that was an exaggeration but I think you get the point. I think when you find a style you love, you want to wear it all the time. The good thing is, these obsessions are usually not long-lived because there are so many other styles to be obsessed with.
Enough rambling and on to the important stuff. If you saw my latest video, you saw I love these new shiny leggings, they are superrrrrrrr comfortable and you can dress them preppy (like I did here) or dress them up for a night out. I am wearing my leather ankle booties because of the gold zipper to add some more detail to my outfit. I had to eventually put my jacket on because it was so hard to pose for photos in the freezing cold weather. I wish I could have a jacket to wear for every outfit so that I could take pics with it on. For now, I’ll keep dreaming and suffer through the cold. Lastly, I recently bought the matte lipstick ‘Stunner’ by Mac x Nasty Gal and this colour is the red lipstick of everyone’s dreams.

I’m back with another holiday party outfit idea! Just incase you didn’t read the title, lol. If you saw Idea 1, you read that comfy and cozy are two words that basically mean the holidays, Idea 2 is following the trend. Christmas is even closer now and if you still don’t know what to wear to Christmas dinner or to any holiday dinner/party, here is some inspiration! Once again, I LOVE feedback, so let me know what you think in the comments and what you love to wear for holiday parties.
This sweater is SOOOOOO comfy, I literally have worn it like everyday since I have bought it (shhhhh, don’t tell). I love the idea of pairing a warm, oversized sweater with a skirt because it dresses up the look but you can still be super comfy. You can also pair your fav sweater with a skater or circle skirt. Add your own style to this look by adding your fav jewelry, a cool hairstyle, a statement lip colour and more.
I have had this skirt for a couple of years now, the colour is so rich and perfect for the holidays. It has faux leather panels on the front and back which I love and adds some more texture to the look. If the weather is pretty cold you can definitely add tights to your outfit, sheer or opaque would look great.
I opted for a comfier shoe option, because who likes standing around in four inch heels all night long? Not me! Plus, shades of grey are super trendy this winter season and the colour will go with almost anything. The menswear, oxford type shoe is one of my favourite styles, I find they make your outfit look more well put together.
PS… once again, mind the quality of the pictures and focus on the outfit!! I am taking photos with my iPhone because there always seems to be some mysterious spot on my camera lens and the pictures turn out even worse on there. But don’t worry, there will be a new camera in the mix after Christmas!!
When I think of winter, I think of creamy whites, bright reds and shimmering golds. However, when I get dressed for the winter, I think of black. Every women has most likely gone through a stage where all she wore was black, I am still in that stage and have no desire to ever leave it. Let me know if you’re still in this stage as well!
Today, I had to run a few errands and wanted to wear something comfy, but definitely warm. Leather leggings are a staple this winter because they go with EVERYTHING! I mean everything. I wore my super comfy mohair sweater, in other words, my super comfy, fuzzy sweater. Recently, I have been liking the style of showing my socks off, I find it adds a cute touch to my outfits and layers are great for the colder months. If you follow me on Instagram, you have seen that I am loving my paisley scarf this season. I actually bought it around three years ago and I love that I can still rock it today. Shades of pink have been my favourite colour for winter (besides black) and I love that it adds a subtle pop of colour to my outfits.
Let me know what your favourite winter colour is this season in the comments.

PS: mind the quality on these pics 😦 I don’t know what was going on with my camera. I hate having to post pics with crappy quality but I was loving my outfit and wanted to share it with you all.

I said a couple posts ago that I wanted to start taking pics of my everyday outfits to post on my blog and here I am! An everyday outfit post on my blog. The weather was a lot warmer today (woop!) so I got to wear a lighter jacket and some sneakers. Sadly, the cold weather will be back with vengeance.
Yesterday at the mall, I was inspired by a few outfits I saw and wanted to create the styles I saw, but in my own way. Layers, layers are so popular for the colder seasons and it’s amazing what textures and colours can look good mixed and matched.
One more thing; one of my many fashion mottos: “You can never wear too much (faux) leather”.
