First of all, before I begin, I want to thank all fashion bloggers who were at this blogger event! Im still an ‘amateur’ blogger, but seeing these girls who have stuck with it for a long time, and post on their blog, it was really nice to meet them, and say hi! The bloggers there were really nice, and I had a lot of fun! Looking at the items now, I see little price tags on them that are decoratively designed by the blogger, adding a little uniqueness to it. There was one blogger who commented on my blue jeans, as there were a few other people who were wearing the same colour – the comment made me feel better about them, because I was unsure when I chose to wear them this morning! I’ll leave the websites of the bloggers who the clothing is from just in case you want to go and check it out! For OOTD:
Shirt: Old Navy, Jeans: Garage, Oxfords: TopShop, Socks: Forever21
Now, as for the best part: I snatched up a few clothing items, and most of them were all under $20, which is a pretty good deal. I found this one bright red-orange top that is quite bright, but will look so good for summer! The shirt is from miss-melissa.com, and originally from Forever 21. I got it for a cool $10. Thank you!
This white sweater, with detailed black beading along the neckline is from cocoandvera (cocoandvera.blogspot.com), originally from BCBG Max Azria, and I snatched it for $20; it’d look nice with those blue jeans and the oxfords I wore today!
This light beige coloured layered light sweater from Coco And Vera, cocoandvera.blogspot.com, has white beading detail. This will look absolutely amazing with the dresses I recently got from H&M!
This thin light top is quite thin, so I’ll have to wear a tank top over it, but for summer when it gets hot in Vancouver, it’ll look really nice. This was from Alicia Fashionista, aliciafashionista.com, she was really nice and I also got a few nice scarves from her, for only $5 each! Thanks!!
This bracelet from The Doctors Closet is quite simple, but the one jewelled bead looks unique! I also snagged a Chanel necklace! I’ll be honest, I don’t know how to tell if what I see is fake or not, but honestly, I don’t care! I love the necklace, and it looks great! The Doctors Closet also sell their own bracelets, which look pretty cool; the promo pictures are absolutely amazing (such as blowing the glitter at the camera), and you can buy these on etsy.com! Go and check out thedoctorscloset.com
Thank you to all the bloggers who put this together; it was really nice meeting other bloggers who share that passion in fashion, and style!
The card above, from Love and Mark’d by Olivia Lovenmark, from stylestruck.com, you can buy these on etsy; I absolutely love these cards, their so simple and elegant. I received this one in a gift bag, as being one of fifty people who arrived early.
Unfortunately it was a gloomy, rainy morning today, but I decided to bring out a little colour, and wore a dress with a blazer. Added with a little key necklace, and bracelet, spring better come soon!
Despite having lived in Vancouver for a little over 6 months, I must admit, I have never visited The Bay at Pacific Centre until today, and I’m happy I walked in! The first thing I did was go to the second floor, where they have Topshop merchandise, which I had heard they had, but never checked out. Oh my, it was like heaven. The styles were different than what I normally wear, but after looking around for 2 minutes, I found something that I could not pass up: Oxford Shoes!
I almost burst in joy, having been looking for flat oxford shoes like these for so long, and found these in the Topshop shoe aisle. I think I’ve died and gone to heaven.
They only had three shoes left, and luckily they had my size, which isn’t always the easiest to find as I do have quite big feet. I then ventured downward to the bottom level, and found some Material Girl jewelry.
Excited for this weekend, as I have some family coming down to visit, who I haven’t seen too often in the last seven months. Have a good weekend everyone!
I have recently discovered some makeup products, and have been using them in my daily routine, and since then, I have cut off about 6 extra minutes form my routine, just from not applying full foundation to my face. The ladies at Mac are always so friendly when I walk in, I just love going there sometimes on a bad day.
I first prep my face with Makeup Forever HD High Definition Primer, and instead of foundation I have been using Mac’s Mineralize Skin Finish Natural in Light Plus, which helps to even out my skin tone quite well, and reduce redness, but not before using Mac’s Studio Sculpt Concealer in NW15 if needed. I then apply NYX blush in Peach, a lovely pink colour, and top it off with Mac’s Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft and Gentle, using that as a highlight. I turn to Mac’s Blacktrack, as it stays on all day, for lining the top lash line. Lastly, I use NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder in Taupe/Ash. I’ve come to find that I like using powder rather than foundation on my face, and now with summer vastly approaching, I don’t have to worry about if the foundation will sweat off my face.
It rained all day this morning, and to keep the day looking good, I wore bright pants. Perfect for Spring! Weird to think that February 29th only happens every 4 years.
Pants: Forever21, Boots: Payless, Blazer: Forever21, Breakfast at Tiffany’s Tee: Old Navy
Last week, I visited my local Lush, in search of a banana shampoo I have heard so much about. Well, I did not find the banana shampoo (possibly because I was at the wrong place) but thankfully the Lush people were happy to help me find the right one for me. I was first asked to describe my hair – which on most days, you’ll find it in a ponytail – and the ladies helped me with sampling the shampoos on my hand, to get a sense of how they smell, and that they really do ‘sud’ up like normal shampoo.
Now, a few days later, I am totally happy with what I received. The first product is the I Love Juicy shampoo, which, to be honest, the smell reminds me of Skittles. It has a soft lemon smell, and almost an yellow tinge colour to it. I love the smell of it, and it makes my hair so soft.
Next I use the Veganese conditioner, which I’m not too over the moon about it, because of the smell. Though I do love it, it has that lemon smell that almost makes you want to cringe; I do love how it makes my hair feel though. I purchased a smaller version of this conditioner to test it out, and may be going back for more. One thing I find with the conditioner, though, it that I find myself using a little more than I would compared to a normal drugstore brand of conditioner. But I still love the Veganese conditioner. They both make my hair so soft, and a little lighter, which I suspect it because both products contain lemons. I will certainly be using up the entire bottle of these!
