Fall is right around the corner, so that means time for sweater weather and pumpkin spice lattes! Or in my case, since I’m not a huge fan of pumpkin spice lattes, lots of homemade apple and pumpkin pies. But food aside, let’s talk fall fashion trends of 2018 and what to look for.
Just last month, I took a trip with Daniel‘s parents to the tropical island of Puerto Rico. We went for a wedding, but were there a few days prior so we could enjoy the weather and explore. This was my first time there, so it was interesting to see how life was in Puerto Rico.
San Juan, Puerto Rico is the perfect place to visit if you’re going on vacation for a few days, but want to experience a little bit of the culture and everyday life. I’ve compiled a short list of things to do and places to see as recommended by many of the locals of San Juan, Puerto Rico when Daniel and I visited.
Holiday or not, every good party needs aesthetic walls or backdrops for a photo booth section. Having a fun night calls for making sure everyone remembers it, especially if there will be some drinks being passed around. I typically don’t drink much, but I do appreciate good party decor and we all know I love DIYing it. Parties and backdrops aren’t cheap, but when you make it yourself, it can be. In fact, it can be $1-5 to make a quality looking one. Here’s 4 variations of backdrops I made for parties.
If you have coloured or damaged hair, it’s best to avoid washing it as much as possible. For me, I’ve managed to avoid washing my hair for up to two weeks (yeah, you read that right). If odour is your concern, there are also ways to freshen it up without the water or soap. And don’t worry, all of these tips are cost friendly. Like you, I am also the average income consumer who doesn’t have a lot to dish on super expensive products or hair treatments.
Fashion is something that some feel like has rules, while others feel like it’s a personal expression and no boundaries exist. For me, I feel like nothing should stop you from wearing what makes you happy and confident. In particular, I’m talking about short girls wearing a maxi dress.
Being in a long distance relationship is tough. Not only do you lack the joy of just having your significant other with you, but you have to compensate and find other ways of communication and entertainment that you can’t do in person. You can’t just go to the movies or sit on the couch with each other watching TV. You can’t go on cute dates or go exploring together. You can’t stay at home and cook together. At least not while you two are apart. Long distance relationships are hard to keep up and I find that that take a […]
I’m so excited to share with you guys these photos because I worked so hard on making my 23rd birthday celebration a beautiful and exciting little get together. Some may call it a party, some may not. I like quiet little gatherings because there’s more bonding and catching up time. As always, I like doings things on a budget. Ideally, if I were to buy all my decorations, it’d be really expensive. So, I looked to Pinterest, got some inspiration and make DIY Party Decorations for under $50 all together!
Balayage and Ombre have been all the rage for the past few years. It started with dip-dye, and eventually evolved into ombre, balayage, and then a fusion of both. I believe the end-goal is for a natural looking colour that’s easy to maintain because it’s not dyed to the roots but still noticeable. I’ve also been on the trend for a while because plain black hair just isn’t my thing and I’m definitely not rich enough to dye my whole head and keep maintaining the colour with my quick growing hair which ends up with nasty looking harsh roots. So, […]
I’m currently 23 and at this age, I feel like a lot of people are drinking and partying a lot, but I feel like it’s no longer my favoured type of entertainment. At one short moment of my life, I did enjoy it. And don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy drinking and partying maybe once or twice a year, but to take part in those activities at the frequency that many of my friends do it, I can’t. Because so many of my friends at the time loved that as a past time and knew I once loved it, […]
Don’t put away your old clothes just yet. As many of you already know, fashion styles and trends cycle throughout the years. Some pieces are directly cycled, some are modified. That’s the beauty of the fashion evolution, old clothes can always be re-used or treasured as vintage pieces. In fact, with some trend re-appearing, it makes me regret donating some old pieces that I definitely would be re-wearing now in 2017. However, the only thing that makes me not feel so bad about my ill decisions is that I probably wouldn’t have still fit in them anyways. None the less, […]
Believe it or not, this makeup remover really is reuseable and cheap. It almost sounds too good to be true and I too was skeptical about the whole idea of it. And to be honest, this has changed my life and I’m never going back. I no longer use any of my old makeup removers. And yes, that include those convenient makeup removing wipes and my beloved Biotherm Balm-to-Oil Cleanser. Want to know what this holy reuseable makeup remover is? Well I’ll tell you.
Tacos and burritos can be messy and a headache if you’re hosting a party for people. They fall, they break, they get soggy, they crumble everywhere. Trust me, I know because I love me a good home made taco. So to get over those struggles, here’s some taco hacks I’ve come by:
The mermaid and unicorn trend have been taking the internet by storm. People have begun making mermaid themed things ranging from food to clothing. Something about the beautiful mix of colours and iridescent details brings these mermaid things to life. One of the more popular and new items that have been introduced is mermaid toast. There’s no surprise to why this one creation has caught so much attention, it’s so elegant and beautiful! So I decided I’m going to take the challenge and create mermaid toast!
I love vegan food because it’s so versatile, healthy, makes you feel good, and aesthetically pleasing. I partnered up with Old El Paso to try my hand at making some vegan taco fillings because you can never have enough taco recipes! I’m actually so excited for this collaboration because I’ve always ran to Old El Paso for taco night supplies, haha. So, after many trial and errors, I have 3 recipes to share made out of: lentils, rice, and cauliflower. If you want a video, I’ll have it linked at the bottom of this post.
