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.
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.
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.
Trying asian products can be intimidating because there’s such a large selection. I find myself buying more American products because I’m used to shopping for them and comparing is easy. However, when it comes to Korean and Japanese products, it’s a whole other world I don’t understand. Luckily for me, Peach & Lily were kind enough to curate me a few products that would suit my skin and its concerns. So here’s my break down of how I felt about everything.
I’m sure you’ve heard about bloggers and Youtubers raving about Acai bowls. I’ve wanted to try it for a long time, but I’ve been holding back because I figured it was generally the same as what I make myself for breakfast sometimes. But since it’s close to where I live, it seemed appropriate to try it out and see if it actually tastes good or if people are just saying it’s “good” because it’s a superfood. I got to find out the truth behind Acai bowls.
I checked out Colette Grand Cafe in Toronto to see if it matches up with the reputation it has on Instagram. Is it as good as it seems online on Instagram? On Instagram, when you look up Colette, you see beautiful, bright, delicious foods with instagram-worthy backdrops and floor-drops for photos. Many bloggers and Instagramers visit the cafe to get professional looking photos without trying too hard. My friend Linda had her birthday shoot here, so it was a great chance for Esther, Linda, and I to check out how the place really looked and how the food tasted.
Have you ever thought back into your childhood memory and remembered a place that you found was beautiful, fun, and unlike any other you’ve visited? I recently did. I took a trip to Mill Pond Park to see if the place in my memory was real. To my delight, it in fact was real. Obviously it was much smaller than I anticipated since I was a lot younger, but it definitely still captured the same beauty, light, and fun.
Not too long ago, I had the pleasure of attending the KISS Fall and Holiday 2016 Collection. It was a pleasant experience at Delysees in Toronto. I have always heard of Delysees and seen many of the delicious pictures, but I had never been there. Being a girl close to Toronto, but still quite the commute away, it’s hard to drag me down there just for food. However, I finally got the chance to try it today! I had the vanilla eclair and it tastes sweet but light. They also offered wine for the guests and thai rolled ice cream! […]
Fashion is complicated sometimes. It’s nice to dress up and buy clothes, but what it does to your bank, is not fun. So I decided to make a short list of summer fashion essentials that you need that will not go out of style. That means if you buy one of these essentials, you most likely will not need to replace it for a long time. These fashion essentials are worth the investment to buy high quality versions.
Now that I’m finally graduated from school, it’s time to venture out into the real world and be a full fledged adult. I have to admit, I’m not ready yet because I want to enjoy my years travelling around the world. I just feel like I’m not ready to be tied down to a 9 to 5 job with only two weeks of vacation. I’m not satisfied. Unfortunately, I will eventually have to get a job and move out, so transitioning into business style is just the start. I know for a fact that when I find a job, I […]
SPRING IS IN THE AIR. You can feel it in the atmosphere when you walk out. It’s just creeping it’s way around. But how do you pack for this weather? For the past two weeks I’ve been staying at a friend’s place and trying to plan ahead and packing light is so hard! I mean- basic make up, bath essentials, and school things take up half my duffel bag… So where do my clothes go?! I really had to pack light for each week, but still be able to accommodate this awkward weather. I must say, it was a real […]
