OOTD | IN SCOTLAND!

I’ve been in Scotland for about two weeks and I friken love it here. It’s nothing like Toronto, or Canada for that matter. It’s so funny to see and experience all the differences between countries. To name one, no one piles onto the busses, no pushing or shoving (like on the TTC), they make a line and enter the bus in an orderly fashion…..crazy concept!

Onto the good stuff, I finally took some photos!! There are so many spots to take photos because every building looks like a cool castle. Everything is grey which makes for a great aesthetic, which is what it’s all about these days. Went to a park down the street from the residence I’m living in and got some shots. I have to say though, I regret everything I packed and so my outfits are literally just jeans, a tee or sweater and leather jacket. I do go to the shops like everyday, so hopefully I can mix it up once and a while.

OKAY. Legit though, I have been looking for an oversized black tee since birth and guess what? I FINALLY FOUND IT. I never usually look in Brandy Melville because I felt the ‘one size fits all’ wouldn’t fit me. While in Rome, as they say, I went into their store and tried this one on and I didn’t fall in love until I got back to the hotel and tried it on again. The tee is super soft and just flows every which way I wanted it too. It fits a bit tighter on the chest and arms and flows out.

LONDON VLOG

Hey everyone! This is my first attempt at vlogging and let’s just say I have a lot of practice to do. But here are some clips of our trip to London. I’ll make separate vlogs for each location; Paris, Rome, Germany. Keep an eye out for blog posts and follow me on Instagram @hungry4style_ to keep up with me from day-to-day. Thanks for reading/watching!!

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

Today marks the first day of a new segment here on hungry4style! Every Friday I will be sharing my favs, from beauty to fashion to lifestyle. I love watching favourite videos on YouTube and reading them on blogs so I thought I would start my own. Most of the time, I will go out and buy a favourite that another blogger has raved about, hehe. I hope you enjoy this and maybe we’ll have some similar favourites or you will find new favourites! That being said, be sure to check back every Friday (you can sign up to the right to be emailed when a new post is out) and follow me on Instagram @hungry4style .

These small dainty necklaces are SO cute layered with each other, they are so simple yet they add so much to your outfit. Some days I don’t really feel like accessorizing but these are so effortless and you can’t go wrong. These are from Forever 21.

Where to I begin on this eyeshadow stick????? First, its like $4 and second, it is just amazeballs. I am so obsessed with gold eyeshadows atm and this chubby stick from NYC has got me going. The colour lasts all day and doesn’t crease, whatsoever. If you’re looking for a summery, bronze glow then I definitely recommend these. They come in quite a few colours but this is my favourite. I have recently been wearing it on my lower lash line and it looks amazing. This colour is 620 Murray Hill Champagne.

Summer is the perfect time to get that glow you’ve been waiting for. This shimmering skin perfector from Becca can give you that without having to tan. I’ve seen other bloggers mix it in with their moisturizer (body or face) to achieve an overall glow but I like to use it as a highlight on the top of my cheekbone. This colour is Opal and it’s not too sparkly and it doesn’t make you look oily.

So these shorts have literally been the only pair I’ve been wearing when I’m out and about. That may have sounded a little gross but don’t worry I wash them, lol. These shorts are so comfy and you can wear them with a tee during the day and dress them up with a crop top and sandals at night. So versatile and so cute. So many stores sell this style so I would go grab a pair asap!! These are from Express, but I know Brandy Melville also sells super cute ones.

Update your Wardrobe for under $150| Spring Edition

In the old days, women used to buy a new wardrobe for each season but now a days that ain’t the case. For us women who don’t want to spend a lot to update our wardrobe, I came up with a list of pieces to update your closet for the Spring season, for under $100. SCORE!!! I usually find that buying new accessories like bags, scarves, shoes and only a couple tops/bottoms will revamp your wardrobe. Hope you enjoy and comment what you like best!!

Spring can still be a little chilly, so opt for a lighter scarf that still adds depth to your outfits. Make sure to get one that matches your Spring jackets. Paisley is back for Spring and adds a twist to the classic floral pattern. | Dynamite $19.95

Spring=Rain and it sucks, but get double the wear out of the coat you buy for Spring. This rain coat will keep you dry but still makes you look so good and Spring-y…is that a word? Say goodbye to those bright yellow rain coats and make a statement in a good way. | Asos $38.73

Time to shoes those little piggies! Lol for real though, this open toe/open heel bootie gives a fresh new look to your black ankle bootie. Fresh new look, fresh flowers means Spring. | Forever 21 $39.90

Switch out your black skinnies for a pair of lighter wash denim. Try a boyfriend fit, high rise or distressed pair to change it up. Sheinside $21.33

For a grand total of $147.81 you can get all these items (or ones similar) to give your wardrobe a fresh new look for Spring. These items can easily be paired with colours and styles from your existing wardrobe which means you don’t have to spend a lot to change it up. Also buying a new lip colour or blush is a great addition to your Spring look. Try out a coral/peachy blush and a pink lip.

Get out of your Winter Outfit Slump

It’s the dead of winter and I think that’s also a metaphor for the death of my outfit creativity. I feel like I’m wearing the same outfits over and over and I can’t seem to get out of this slump. I’ve noticed other bloggers and social media people talking about being in a slump and I couldn’t really find any articles or posts on how to get out of one. I thought I would share some tips on how to finally get out of that damn slump! These have all worked for me and I hope they work for you too. Share in the comments what you do to get out of your outfit slump.

  • paint your nails (even if your clothes are the same, your nails can change every week)
  • re-organize your closet (you may find items you forget about and fall back in love with them)
  • take the afternoon to go through your clothes and style outfits you have never worn before and try them on (you’ll find some unusual combinations that you will love)
  • search tumblr and pinterest for #street-style pics that are sure to inspire
  • go to the mall! see whats in the windows, hot new colours, patters, fabrics and choose one peice to buy that will spice of your wardrobe for the rest of winter
  • try out new beauty looks, a statement lip can change the style of your entire outfit
  • go back to basics; white tee, jeans, boots, sweater, and add your own style to them (this gives you a solid foundation where you can add whatever you want to them)
