A Home For My Daily Essentials

Hi hi! I just wanted to jump on here quick to share with you a new post! I’m super excited about it! Today I’m going to share with you this cute little item that Mejuri so kindly sent to me. They emailed me to collaborate and I’M OBSESSED with their brand (currently have 3 of their pieces in my shopping cart lol), so obviously I said yes.

The “Daily Case” is a pocket-sized case that is equipped to carry all of my Mejuri daily essentials. I feel absolutely naked if I’m not at least wearing my Mejuri rings and having this case with me helps prevent that. There are three colours that you can choose from: Bordeaux (a sexy red shade), black, and beige. I wanted the beige but the only colour that wasn’t sold out at the time was black lol. But looking back at it now, it was a blessing in disguise because I know that I’d get the beige beyond dirty. One of my favourite things about this case is that it’s lined with an anti-tarnish microsuede that will help to maintain my daily rotation of Mejuri pieces in perfect condition!

Although they gifted me this case, and I have partnered with them a few times now, I still really love and support the brand. Like I said, there are at least two pairs of earrings and a ring in my Mejuri shopping cart right now lol. I have never been disappointed by them and I plan on using this case to take with me everywhere. Whether it’s to see my family for the weekend, or an overnight stay at my boyfriend’s, or even just to have in my purse at work! I will definitely be using this case and if you’re in the market for something like this for even your non-Mejuri jewelry, I highly recommend it!

The Mejuri Daily Case is $65 CAD and they give you a 2 Year Warranty. I am not being paid to write this blog post. I really just love it so much (I think it’s the organized freak in me ha-ha)! Pick one up and I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.

I hope you’re all having a lovely start to your week, and I hope you’re all safe and well!

Until next time,

Meet Me At Sunset Park

I don’t know where Sunset Park is. If you know where it is, I’d love to know! What I do know is that this is the name of my new favourite cardigan! It’s the “Sunset Park Cardigan” from Free People. I am absolutely obsessed with the fit and the colours. I feel like this cardigan will remind me of all the beautiful sunsets I witnessed during the summer because whether I like it or not, it’s getting chillier here in Toronto and it’s getting chilly FAST *sadface*. The fit of this cardigan is amazing because I feel like I’m wearing a stylish blanket. It’s super oversized but I love that. When you’re tiny like me, you learn to embrace that everything is going to be oversized lol.

For the rest of my outfit, I think I’m wearing mostly TOPSHOP. If you’ve read my blog posts before, you know that me and their Petite section have a wonderful relationship. The top is this black crop top that I got a few years ago now. It has wide straps with these fab buckles that I think make the top a lot less boring (you can’t see them because they’re underneath the cardigan but trust me, they’re there lol). The pants are part of my quarantine pants collection. By that, I mean these pants are forgiving and do not make me feel like I’ve gained the weight that I’ve so unfortunately gained. WE LOVE a good drawstring waist, ladies!

The shoes I wore are my trusty checkered Vans slip-ons. I think I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again: I WILL ALWAYS AND FOREVER HAVE A PAIR OF THESE SHOES. I think they’re cool, stylish, and most of all, COMFORTABLE. They’re so easy to put on and I’m pretty sure I climbed a mountain in the Philippines in them lol. They’ve been there for me through it all, and they’ve also held up pretty well! The accessories I’m wearing are minimal (for me lol). I just wore my Ariana Grande inspired initial necklace. I think she wore a very similar necklace in one of her music videos and I went on a hunt for it. Last but not least, I’m wearing my favourite Nunoo bag: Frankie. We love her. I’ve had some issue where the dye of some of my clothing is rubbing off on her and thankfully I learned that a pencil eraser can get it out! Can you believe that? I googled how to get a stain out of a suede bag, that came up, and it works! If you didn’t know this, you’re welcome ;))

As it starts to get chillier, I’m starting to worry about how I’m going to be able to take these outfit photos during the Winter. Do you guys have any tips or suggestions? Maybe I need to get a light box for photos in my apartment? Rent a studio space? How much is it to even rent a studio space? If you guys know any of the answers, I would really appreciate it if you could let me know in the comment section below!

Hope you’re all doing well, and have a fabulous weekend!

OOTD: Layering Game

Hey everyone! I’m very, very, very happy that I finally have some of my own photos to share this time!! I have an outfit of the day, can you believe it?! I can’t even remember the last time I was able to get some decent outfit pictures. Actually.. it was probably the last time my friend Keni (Instagram: @kenifromtheblock) took pictures of me ha-ha. This outfit was based on layering, and mixing casual pieces with a piece that would be considered more formal. This printed drape-y vest was something I got on sale at Topshop last year and I always considered it as kind of a more dressier piece. To layer and make this vest look more casual, I added jeans, a distressed t-shirt, sneakers, and a leather jacket! I like how it turned out, and I’m glad I opted for green as a pop of colour. Normally, I would have been safe and gone with a neutral-coloured t-shirt BUT NOT THIS TIME ;D I know it’s not anything crazy. This is only a bit of an example of how I have been evolving in terms of style and taste. I can’t wait to show you guys more!

DIY Frayed-Hem Jeans

I’m here with something new and exciting! Like I’ve said in my previous post, I’ve been really motivated and determined lately. That means that I’m also motivated and determined to blog more and come up with some different content! In today’s post, I’m going to share with you a little do-it-yourself project that I did the other day. I DIY’d my own pair of frayed-hem jeans!

I got this sick pair of gray straight-leg jeans from work for $10. That’s right TEN DOLLARS. When I bought them they were waaay too long for me, but they fit perfectly around my waist! For $10, I racked my brain for an idea on how I could make them work. I mean, I could have got them hemmed for another $10 but who wants to do that?! Lol, not me!! I decided to hem them myself, and even better, I decided I wanted a FRAYED hem. We sell them at Topshop for almost $100. I love them and wanted them until I realized I could probably make them myself!! So I did and now here we are. Not only am I going to show you how they turned out, but I’m going to show you how I made them in case you guys want to try doing this yourselves! Here we go!

Things you’ll need:

dscn25311

  1. Jeans – you could use an old pair, or even thrift a pair!
  2. Scissors (preferably fabric scissors, but I lost mine..)
  3. Tweezers
  4. Pencil or Chalk
  5. Measuring Tape

 

Step One:

dscn25341

Lay out your jeans and measure them to your desired length. Then draw a line for yourself to follow while you cut! Keep in mind that you’re going to need an inch or so for the frayed part. Side note: It looks like I cut off three inches from the bottom of my jeans.. I ended up cutting an extra inch. #shortgirlproblems Also, you don’t NEED to measure it out, draw a line, etc. If you’re comfortable eye-balling it, by all means go for it!! It’ll probably look more natural if you do it that way. I’m just a neat freak.

Step Two:

dscn25391

If you’ve measured where you want to cut them, cut away! If you’re eye-balling it, cut away! *TIP: Try the jeans on after! See where they sit! If you want them shorter, measure it out and cut some more!

Step Three:

dscn25441

Take your measuring tape again and measure from the bottom of your jeans to where you’d like your fraying/fringe to start. I measured one and a quarter inch. Draw another line across then instead of cutting across, cut up towards that line and make even little strips. BE CAREFUL NOT TO DESTROY A SIDE SEAM. That may cause you problems in the future!

Step Four:

dscn25511dscn25531

Take a good and close look at one of those little strips. You’ll notice that there are threads going vertically and horizontally. This is how we’re going to make it fray. Loosen up the threads a bit with your fingers. Then take your tweezers and start to pull away all the horizontal/white threads until you each the end of the strip. We don’t want those guys! Do this to every strip all the way around the leg.

This is what it should look like once you’ve done a few strips:

And once you’ve finished all the strips on BOTH legs, this is what they’ll look like!! 🙂

I’m so happy with how these turned out. I hope you guys enjoyed this post! I had a lot of fun putting this together. If you’d like more DIYs, let me know in the comment section below!

Happy Tuesday!
