VLOG October Beauty Favourites

Whhhhhhat?!   A video blog?  This is the 90's.  No seriously, I have been wanting to do these for years and never had the right equipment (even though I did end up just shooting this on the computer instead of with my DSLR - whateverrrr it was like 8 pm at the office and I wanted to go home).  It's short and sweet and impromptu, but I hope you like it!

OH, and if you plan to enter the mentioned giveaway, you only have today to enter! xo

This look is brought to you by the beauty of blogging.  I saw the gorgeous and stylish Krystin of Suburban Faux-Pas rocking a similar look and not only did I love it, I realized I had everything to re-create it myself - woot!  In other news, this outfit also made me realize that I kind of want to chop by hair off because it was so darn long that I had to tuck it into the scarf and it's starting to feel incredibly out of control in a way that I could only describe in a run-on sentence.  Perhaps a long bob?  Maybe a bit longer than that?  I just don't know, there are so many possibilities!  Anyway, enough rambling for today.  Hope you're all having a great week so far xo

I've had Banks on repeat ever since her show here in Vancouver.  She totally redeemed our Coachella experience, as The Commodore was (as I predicted) a MUCH better venue for her sound.  And man, I just needed to get out of our damn apartment.  I think before Hawaii I was in a total Netflix funk and would spend every night in front of the television like an absolute slug.  I'm really thankful for the two weeks away, because I've already done more around the house since we've been back than I think I did all summer combined.  Anyway, Banks was just a reason to get dressed up and be social and get lost in a live performance.  Really helped pull me out of the post work funk.  The good news is that we have a ton of other concerts happening this year, including The Bahamas tonight with my cousin (tumblr superstar) Olivia.  How about you?  Any great shows coming up or new music to recommend?  Would love to hear it!


Fall Vibes

Photos are not mine.  Sourced from here, here, herehere, and here.

I feel like I was just in tropical heat, searching for shade under a palm tree.  Only a few days back and it's all umbrellas and layers and plaid.  And you know what?  I'm so glad.  I'm feeling big brimmed hats and warm drinks.  I want to curl up on the couch with a good book with a record playing in the background.  I just kind of want to live in this mood board, is that too much to ask?!

Speaking of which, I'm now getting into tumblr (follow here: aliciafashionista) because I'm feeling youthful and in need of inspiration (admittedly, I think I JUST figured out how it works...).  Anyway, what's your tumblr?  Would love to follow you! xx
