The First Monday In December

December 4, 2017

It’s not raining and I have coffee.

My jet lag and anxiety seem to have joined forces to form an unstoppable team of energy suckers.   Bedtime is now comically early and falling asleep is a jarring blackout rather than a peaceful descent into dreamland.  I keep waking up in the middle of the night, convinced that it’s morning.  I actually celebrated a 6 am “sleep in” this past weekend.  I watched ‘How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days’ and made vegan pancakes before Adam even left for work today.  Am I becoming a morning person?  It’s all so very confusing.

Those two weeks away were very much needed, even if it has been a slower transition back to reality.  As uncomfortable as it can be to shake out of a routine, I realized that I very much craved a reminder that I could push myself.  Cannot wait to tell you all about it soon.  I have to sort out all my thoughts and photos first.  Plus, with the holidays have kind of taken over my life since returning to Vancouver.  Besides sleeping a ton, I also spent this past weekend decorating the apartment and watching as many festive movies as possible.  Unfortunately, I’m also massively behind on holiday content for the blog, which is such a shame because I really had great ideas this time around.  Even if I can only get to a few of them, it’s going to be a mad scramble this week, but we can do it!  There’ll be a big gift guide up in the next few days that I’m super excited about.  Stay tuned!

My Drugstore Ponytail Hack

November 19, 2017

Always aiming for maximum ponytail volume ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I have to say that teaming up with Goody has been so fun!  When we first kicked off our partnership, they sent a box of their products for me to play around with, which was all kinds of amazing.  I have discovered some new go-to accessories and wanted to share a recent favourite with you.  The best part?  You’ll have the opportunity to WIN a Goody Hair package to try out their accessories as well!  More details coming up on my Insta very soon.

Since I don’t wash my Mufasa mane on the daily, quick and easy styles for second (or third, or fourth) day hair are so important.  A ponytail is obviously a classic style, but I was so excited to discover a little Goody accessory that helps take things to the next level.  With the weight of my hair, a ponytail usually falls flat and the elastic slides down with any movement.  This little comb and elastic combo helps keep things secure and gives that fountain effect at the top for mega volume!  Though I have thicker hair, I did try it out on a friend who has thinner locks and it also worked well for her.

Be sure to check out my other favourite Goody accessories in past posts here and here!  There will also be a HUGE Goody Giveaway on my Instagram in the next few days, so keep an eye out for it!

3 Ways To Style A Checked Blazer

October 30, 2017

Checked Blazer + White Tee + Jeans from errands, to the desk, and off to dinner!

I’ve owned this thrifted blazer for years, so you can imagine my delight when it has been deemed ‘in style’ this Autumn!  Mine might have shoulder pads, but it’s as though I’ve saved myself at least $100 for hoarding it away in my closet.  Since I’ve been seeing this kind of jacket everywhere, I thought it would be fun to style it up for three different occasions.  Didn’t do anything too crazy with these looks, just simple swap out pieces.  Wanted to show you some versatility in this check blazer, if you’ve succumb to the pressures of Fall 2017.

I kept the base simple because chances are you have a great pair of skinny jeans and a decent white crew neck tee.  If not, who even are you?  Now, let’s begin.
