The Perfect Blow Out //

Monday, 18 March 2013


Happy Monday!! If you haven't already heard, I started a YouTube!! I am so very excited about it, and last week I posted my first video. After my first post which you can see HERE, I had a couple lovely ladies enquiring about how I did my hair, so I thought I would put together a little something to show you all how I got that look! So here it is, the perfect blow out! I really hope you love my youtube posts, and please let me know what you like/don't like and what sorts of videos you would prefer to see! Also if you don't mind hitting that subscribe button, it would just mean the world to me. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful Monday!

The Lust List //

Friday, 15 March 2013














































It's Friday!!! This week seemed to go by super fast, and it's strange because I had all week off with really not much to do. By the way excuse my lack of posts this week, my poor little Macbook was in the shop, only to find that my warranty is void because of a drop of water in the back, hmpf, silly Apple. Oh well, it's the weekend!! I got paid yesterday so I think some shopping is definitely in order. I went to buy number 5 yesterday but the only size 6's they had were all scuffed and gross but good thing you can order online now! I think I shall order a fresh, clean pair! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful Friday!

White & Gold For the Home //

Wednesday, 6 March 2013





When I first moved into my apartment, the idea of decorating the whole space was daunting. I can get easily stressed so if something wasn't looking the way I wanted it to right away, steam would start coming out of my ears. I have since learned that decor takes time, gather your thoughts, have a colour concept in mind, and focus on one room at a time. Soon I will be moving back home for a little bit to both find and save money for a house, but that definitely doesn't stop me from planning out my home decor for my future house! There's nothing like a crisp white space with just a touch of gold, this will definitely be a main trend in my soon to be home.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful Wednesday!

Nude Nails For Spring //

Tuesday, 5 March 2013

























































This Spring, it's all about looking natural; natural brows, natural hair, and natural nails. I'm head over heels for this look, it's so crisp and fresh for Spring (I also love any excuse to not have to do my hair). I've been testing out some nude polishes to go with the natural trend and these are some of my favs. I am also completely smitten with the look of adding just a dash of sparkle to your nude nails, just above the cuticle is simply perfect! 

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful Tuesday.

Trend Spotting: Flamingo //

Monday, 4 March 2013














































I am such a sucker for pink. When I was growing up my walls were plastered a sugar-sweet bubble gum pink, and even now, as I'm writing this, I'm looking at both my pink agenda and pink iPhone case, some things really never get old! I have been seeing flamingo inspiration everywhere, and it is oh so fabulous for Spring. I'm excited to test out this trend in the upcoming sunny days, both flamingo print and flamingo pink add the perfect punch to any outfit. What spring trends are you excited to try?

The Lust List //

Friday, 1 March 2013












































I can't believe it's Friday already, and it's March!! Time really does fly. Seeing as it's Friday, it's time for my end of the week lust list; items that I have stumbled upon over the past week or so and can't seem to get out of my head. What better excuse than a Friday to go shopping?! Plus I had a super bad day yesterday so I think some retail therapy is definitely in order. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend.
