Welcoming the NEW YEAR

tumblr_nhmb11qquE1shcqiqo1_1280

Hey guys! Today I have a different kind of post to share. As I’m sure you’re all aware, it’s not 2014 anymore! I know it’s been a week but HELLO 2015!! Around this time of year people are often creating their new year’s resolutions. What is it that they say? New year, new me? Who cares. Why does a new year make a new you? YOU make a new you. If you think about it, it’s really just another day. I clearly don’t support the idea of depending on the new year to change yourself, but I do support the idea of bettering yourself! This could be done any time of year! For instance, I have decided to learn how to cook (properly), to spend money a little more wisely, and to drink more water! I think these little things could be great changes for me and I’m going to work hard to stick to them! I get my cooking skills from my mother, and by skills, I mean the lack there of. My Bucket List has always consisted of me getting proper cooking lessons but I think for now I’m going to try the self-teaching method hah (wish me luck!). As a fashion blogger, I find it really hard not to purchase all the latest trendy pieces. Working at Topshop doesn’t really help me either. I’m going to try my best to be smart and only purchase items that I know I’ll get my money’s worth. Items that I can basically see myself getting a lot of use out of. If I end up saving money like I hope to, I am dying to plan a trip. Anywhere. Seriously, just get me on a plane!! (I’ve never been on one.. shhh!!) Finally: water. I definitely don’t drink as much water as I should, and to change that I bought a reusable water bottle that I plan on carrying with me everywhere! At restaurants I am only asking for water. No pop. Water is soo good for you! Not only is it healthy but it’s great for your skin! I highly recommend you all to try and do the same!!

So yeah, that’s my plan. How are you planning on bettering yourself this year? Let me know in the comments below!

Oversized

I bought this oversized coat months ago and I have been wearing it everyday since! It never occurred to me that I should probably share it in a blog post because it immediately became a part of my everyday wardrobe. It is honestly the best coat I have ever owned and I love it very much! I especially love the lilac colour because not only can I wear in the winter, but I have a feeling it will be acceptable to wear in the early spring as well ;D

Hope you all like it! I also hope you’re all having a great holiday season, and have a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

December Inspiration

I was inspired this month by the oversized look (as per usual), and embellishments/glitzy things for the holidays. I still have a huge obsession with all things chunky and knitted. I’ve also been all about that dark lip, interesting footwear, and I really REALLY want a full ribbed/knit/sweater outfit, top and pants, the whole she-bang (like the picture below). I think I saw Selena Gomez wearing one from Zara???? Anywaaays. Like always, these are pictures I took from Tumblr. I take no credit for any of them, they’re just pictures that I’ve been loving/going to for inspiration!

Enjoy!

Double Slit

Hey friends!! Today I have a new outfit post, and it was inspired by this marvellous creature that I found at Forever21. It’s a double slit dress *gasp*. A co-worker of mine described it to me at work the other day and I was sold at the words ‘double slit’. I had been looking for something like this for a while and when she also mentioned that it was ONLY TWENTY DOLLLARS, I sped over to F21 during my 30min break. I had to!! It took a bit of hunting too, there was only two left!! I’m so glad that I found it. It’s so unique and I can picture myself wearing it with denim shorts in the spring/summer time! I love it! What are your thoughts?

#GirlBoss Material?

Aviary Photo_130626355213011472

What is a #GirlBoss? What does it take to become a #GirlBoss? Just recently I have finished reading Sophia Amouruso’s book “#GirlBoss” (I was up until 3am), and I absolutely loved it. LIKE LOOOVVVVVED IT (no exaggeration). Her writing style and words of wisdom are beyond inspiring, making this book a must-read for all aspiring fashion students/people. Heck! Even if you aren’t crazy about fashion but are interested on how to be successful in the business world, you HAVE to read this book! Sophia’s story behind her amazing success is far from glamorous, and it was definitely far from easy (she was a 17 year-old dumpster eater for Pete’s sake!)! However, after reading, I’ve learned a number of great ways to help me fulfill my dreams. Sophia made it clear to me that hard work and compromise is rewarded. Her story and the things she had to say were so relatable that I feel empowered after reading it. She gives me hope and the motivation to try to “be the best”. I really don’t want to give too much away because I’m really hoping you guys will read this book too. Sophia and other inspirational #Girlbosses (like Leandra Medine from Man Repeller) give advice on a few things like how to manage your money, stay positive, and achieve success. After reading this book all I want to do is work hard and keep busy!

You all have to read it, I highly recommend it 🙂

A Plaid Affair

Another cold day (you can tell by the pictures where I look hand-less). These definitely aren’t the greatest of shots but I loved my outfit and had to share. This is a vintage skirt that I picked up at a thrift store downtown a few weeks ago. You’ll probably recognize it from my previous post ;D I wore it for the first time on a day I had to work and as I was walking to the bus stop (in a mad hurry), I made my boyfriend document my outfit.

Isn’t he the best?

Anywho! Voilà!! (Enjoy that expression in the second picture, it kills me.)
