Vday | Love yourself

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

Graphics and Shoes

 

 Hey everyone! Havn’t had a lot of time to do an outfit post and go out and get photos taken so instead I’ll show you some of the things I have seen lately and what I have bought! So if you don’t follow my Insta (which you definitely should… @hungry4style_) all these pics I have posted up on there, I take almost all the photos myself or I get some inspiration from Tumblr and other bloggers.

Obviously I love going to the mall and I found so many amazing graphic shirts from Zara. Some are tanks, tees and crew neck sweaters. I also bought my first item from Lush and let’s just say I will be back to buy more. Usually, I’m not so into face washes and all those types of things but I figured I would give it a try (since while camping I bought my first bath bomb). I got the Angels on Bare Skin face wash and OMG, it makes my skin so soft and hydrated. It has hints of lavender and almond meat (inside of the almond not the shell) to reduce redness and keep the skin soft.

Since I have a never ending list of things I want to buy, I am always on the look out for things that I particularly want. And a lace bralette was one of them.  A lot of stores have nice ones but they aren’t padded and that is not going to work out for me, I am all about keeping the ladies pushed up. I finally found some at Aerie that act as a bra but show as a feminine and chic bralette. I chose a light pink one because it is the most feminine colour to wear and would look awesome with a lot of colours. I also got a grey one because most of my wardrobe is black and it would look great and give a minimalism style to my outfits.

AREN’T THOSE CHELSEA BOOTS SO AMAZING????!!! YES THEY ARE. Oh lord, those boots are so beautiful and they look even better on (will be buying them soon). Love at first sight really does exist. The great thing about these shoes is that they are a rubber heel so that makes for really comfortable wearing. I am planning to wear these boots with cuffed denim, joggers, skirts, shorts, leather leggings.

One trend to try this fall is the combo of sneakers and boyfriend jeans. Menswear for women can be casual too and this look says it all. Shows the slouchy yet sexy side of wearing a great pair of jeans and some thick-soled sneakers.

Inspiration Goes a Long Way

The title could probably sum up this post but instead I am going to do a lot of talking.. well, actually it’s writing. So don’t just think ‘ugh I just want pictures!’. No outfit post this week. Surprisingly I didn’t pack a lot of clothes with me to go camping. Unfortunately, I have been an offender of repeat outfits and I am not just going to put together something you have already seen for the sake of an outfit post. I want to wait until I get back to the city to give you guys something great. I did go shopping though and I bought the cutest lace bralettes from Aerie and an awesome jungle print tank and printed pants. There will definitely be posts about these because they are all amazing buys. I have always under rated Aerie until a couple days ago. Literally they have the cutest PJ shorts, bras and panties. The best thing is I get 50% off my birthday month (which is next month) so I am super excited about that.

I wrote the quote above myself because I truly believe it and that anyone and everyone should live by it. It’s true because clothes can make you feel a certain way and can even make you feel like someone other than yourself (not in a good way) so to truly be who you are, you need to wear what you want. On that note, I want to talk about style and give a couple quotes from the books I have been reading lately. So, the books I am talking about are The Little Black Book of Style by Nina Garcia and The World According to Karl which is a collection of quotes by the amazing Karl Lagerfeld. I definitely recommend these two books to every one interested in Fashion, they can be bought at Chapters (in Canada) and probably online as well. 

 

The one topic I came across in Nina Garcia’s book is “What makes a woman stylish?” and almost every answer was along the lines of ‘confidence’, ‘elegance’ and  ‘passion’. Donatella Versace said, “Without a doubt, the most stylish asset that any woman can have is confidence.”. This is SO TRUE and all of us women need to embrace what we have and love ourselves first. Elle Macpherson said, “Find a personal style by not following fashion trends”. Yes, trends make us feel cool, hip and ‘in the know’ but do they really encompass your true style? The answer is no because you are just following what everyone else is doing and that is not style. 

Here are a couple quotes from Lagerfeld; “The clothes don’t have to suit you; you have to suit the clothes.”, “What is a ‘style’? It starts with breaking away from convention, smashing accepted reality.”. 

 

Inspiration… inspiration can literally be found anywhere you can see with your two eyes. It can be found riding your bike down the street, sitting in your office, scrolling through Tumblr, seeing your favourite colour. Everyone needs inspiration to get by, we all help each-other find out more about ourselves, what we like, what we dislike. It is amazing what inspiration can do. 

 

What I hope to do is inspire women all around the world some day and I can only start by writing this blog to showcase who I am and help others be who they are. I hope you all go out tomorrow and buy these books because they are amazing!
