Texas Travel Diary | Dallas Arboretum Botanical Garden

Texas Travel Diary | Dallas Arboretum Botanical Garden

This was my last stop during my stay in Texas. I didn’t even know there was a Dallas Arboretum until my boyfriend pointed it out to me. I do love nature, so I thought it’d be fun to check it out. I have to say though, this place is bigger than you think it’d be. We got there an hour before they closed and decided to take the main paths. There isn’t too much to see but a small overview on the main path. However, when we started venturing deeper into the little paths, we came to realize that this […]

Texas Travel Diary | Frisco Heritage Museum

Texas Travel Diary | Frisco Heritage Museum

Going to Texas means food. Yes the food is cheaper there than in Canada for a lot more to consume, but you do also run short of money. I especially ran short because of having to buy a new charger since the hotel at Lubbock shorted mine out. The other museums like the National Video Game, Dallas Art Museum, Nasher Sculpture Garden, and Dallas Arboretum costed some money to enter, but the Frisco Heritage Museum was free. Score! It was also one of my top 3 favourite places to visit in Texas because everything was preserved history in its original spot. […]

Texas Travel Diary | Frisco Central Park

Texas Travel Diary | Frisco Central Park

If you know Texas, you know it is HOT. I’m a girl from Canada and I am definitely not used to the heat at all. I will say that I do prefer the heat over the cold though. Because it’s so hot, my boyfriend and I tried to refrain from leaving the house in the daytime. Instead, we slept during the day and went out at night like owls whenever we could. The weather at night is beautiful. It is warm enough to wear light layers or no layers at all, but cool enough where you don’t have to be […]

Texas Travel Diary | Dallas Museum of Art & Sculpture Garden

Texas Travel Diary | Dallas Museum of Art & Sculpture Garden

I feel like visiting any museum when you go to a new place is a mandatory tourist bucket-list task. It lets you learn more about the place you’re visiting. I did go to other museums like the Dallas Video Game Museum or botanical garden, but the first place I went to was the Dallas Museum of Art & Nasher Sculpture garden. They were both beside each other, so it was super convenient to be able to visit both.

Summer Fashion Essentials That Will Never Die Out

Summer Fashion Essentials That Will Never Die Out

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.

Embracing the Business Style | Classic Vests

Embracing the Business Style | Classic Vests

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 […]

When Trying to Pack Light | Closet Basics

When Trying to Pack Light | Closet Basics

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 […]

How I Got Teal Balayage Hair | Halo Hair Studio Review

How I Got Teal Balayage Hair | Halo Hair Studio Review

I already had balayage and ombre in my hair from last year. The first picture depicts the dark and soft ombre. That I had. My hair also grew out quite a few inches since then. Because I already had balayage and ombre in my hair, my stylist Amanda simply touched up the top layer of my hair with a lighter balayage and gave me a 2 inch trim. You can see the results in the middle photo. Excuse the way my ends look, they’re always frizzy when freshly blow dried/ air drying. It was fairly brassy toned because she needed […]

Rain, Rain, Go Away | Layering with Different Textures

Rain, Rain, Go Away | Layering with Different Textures

Told you I’d wear the hell out of my houndstooth skirt. Instead of wearing it for a light outfit, I’m styling it to keep me warm. It’s been raining a lot since Spring came around. When I think of rain, I think: ick. Go away please. For whatever reason, I never want to wear colours when it’s raining. Maybe because it’s so gloomy and dark that it just puts me off. The only time I really want to wear a bright outfit is when the sun is radiating in the sky. Oh, I miss that weather. Well, I guess I’ll suck it […]

Manning Up for the Bipolar Weather | Geometric Shapes

Manning Up for the Bipolar Weather | Geometric Shapes

I love geometric pieces. They show off a sense of sophistication and edge. The hard lines make me think of a professional business woman while the colours and different dimensions of the shapes convey a creative image. They’ve been in season since winter but I haven’t been able to get my hands on the perfect piece until now.

How I Got Rid of My Adult Acne | Skin Care Routine

It’s not a pretty picture. But at least I shrank it so it’s not in full size. I’m sure I don’t need to tell you which is the before and which is the after. On a side note, dear future boyfriend: my skin isn’t perfect. I  can’t be the flawless sleeping  beauty you wake up to, LOL. But here’s how I got over it:

Foodie Adventures | Ruelo Afternoon Tea Review

Foodie Adventures | Ruelo Afternoon Tea Review

I’ve always wanted to try afternoon or high tea. It always looked so classy, posh, and delicious. Any time I see desserts beautifully plated, it wins me over and I want it. Now, afternoon tea tends to be very pricy. It’s usually minimum $30 per person. Some prices even go up to a whopping $70 each. I’m sure the high end tea places have much more luxury desserts and teas, but it’s totally out of my budget. Luckily, I found a Groupon for afternoon tea for two at Ruelo. How much was it? Only $30 for TWO! What a deal! […]

Welcoming the Green | Parka & Houndstooth

Welcoming the Green | Parka & Houndstooth

The weather in Toronto has been wavering between fall and spring. It’s chilly in the morning, but warmer during the afternoon. Being a commuter student, I need to dress according to both climates because if I leave the house in the morning, it’s already afternoon by the time I get to school. Having versatile jackets is a pretty high priority in my books.

Bipolar Canadian Blues | Crop Top & Sweatpants

Bipolar Canadian Blues | Crop Top & Sweatpants

Spring weather has been coming and going recently. It’s literally like a tease. One day it’s 2’C, another day it’s -7’C. Sometimes it even starts at -7’C and becomes 5’C in the afternoon. So obviously, picking out what to wear is the biggest confusion for me. When the weather is bipolar, all I want to do is be laid back and stay in bed. The stress of having to choose attire that I won’t regret is too much. Luckily, crop tops are so versatile. You can literally style it for all 4 seasons and still look weather sensible. Crop tops should […]
