Hi friends! Before I go on about what I am currently loving at the moment, I want to share something I’ve been thinking about lately. I’ve realized that not everyone can relate to all this Fashion/Style stuff that I blog about. I know occasionally I do a Book Review, but I think I want to write about some more relatable stuff as well. I’ve been thinking a lot about expanding the type of content that I want to share on my blog, and I think that I want to do travel aspirations, restaurants/places I’ve visited in Toronto, apartment décor, etc. Maybe some days I’ll just blog about my thoughts or feelings? I want to be able to post more frequently, like almost on a daily basis. So yeah, I’m not going to constrict all my content around Fashion and Style. I mean, I still LOVE Fashion and Style to death but I know a lot of you probably don’t feel the same. I wanna connect with ALL of you! SO yeah, that’s what I’m going to do for the next little bit. We’ll see how it goes!
Now on to today’s post. Currently Loving: Dresses Over Pants. If you don’t already know, I live in Canada. Winters are terrible, and apparently don’t seem to want to end! Seriously though, we had days where it was sunny and like 14 degrees Fahrenheit and now it’s back to -7 degrees. Global warming sucks. Anyway, what I’m trying to get at is that I’ve been itching to wear my dresses but it’s been too danggg cold. The weather has been all over the place and therefore the only solution has been to wear dresses over pants. The bonus to all of this is that it’s actually trending right now! Look at all these pictures below!

I actually really like the look of skinny jeans with a dress on top. I’m definitely going to use this trend to my advantage until Spring actually arrives. What do you guys think of the look? Hot or not? I would love to hear your opinions in the comment section below :))
Happy Monday! Cheers to a new week/new beginning! Hope you’re starting your week off right Xx
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!

I hope you guys enjoyed this post. You guys have no idea how much I like to share my outfits and I’m gonna try my best to do it more. I’m currently thinking about doing an “Outfits of The Week” post. What do you guys think of that idea? Let me know in the comment section below!!
Until next time!
Hey friends! I’m currently a victim of a terrible stomach bug, and have isolated myself in my room with nothing to do. I can’t sit around and do nothing, so I thought I’d be productive and share a blog post! I kind of lost track of my “December Inspiration” and therefore I’ve decided to just share inspiration photos/photos of things I’m “currently loving”. I’ll probably continue to do monthly inspiration posts for 2017 because I like to see how my taste evolves throughout the year. I am going to put a stop to “Wardrobe Additions” though. As much as I liked the idea, I feel like it has encouraged me to shop more. I’ll go shopping and think: “I love this! And I could add it to my Wardrobe Additions for the month, so that’s even better!” So basically I was buying (or thinking of buying) even more clothes just for blog content. Definitely not the kind of mentality I should have if I want to save my money, pay off student loans, and travel. I have plenty of clothes that I can remix and re-style. I think that’s the great part about fashion and personal style. It works for any budget, and it’s more about how you express yourself than if you have the latest trendy piece. So here are some photos that inspire my current taste in fashion/style, and also some photos that I just loove right now:
There you have it! A quick post on what’s currently inspiring me style-wise. I know it’s not much, but it’s something! A new year’s resolution of mine if to be more consistent with blogging and to really (like actually) start my YouTube channel. I will keep you guys updated!
And until then, I hope you all had happy holidays and I can’t wait to see what 2017 has in store!
Have a great weekend (hope your Friday is going better than mine!),
For all of you who didn’t know, I recently moved in with one of my best friends in our very own apartment. Since moving in June, I’ve been so so sooo obsessed with decorating and really making this apartment more like a home. Before this apartment, I was crammed in a house with four other girls/students and it didn’t feel like home at all. I know that I’ll be moving again sometime in the future, but for now, I really want this apartment to look nice and to be a reflection of myself and my roommate. So far, I’m STILL working on my bedroom. It definitely looks more like MY room than it did at the beginning, but there’s still so much more I want to do! This is where my current obsession comes in: Urban Outfitters. The “home/apartment” section on their website is something I find myself browsing almost every single day. I love love love everything on that site. I tweet about it ALL the time. I love the style, I love the home-y vibes. Everything is so cute and so nice – and also sooo pricey. Pillows, rugs, blankets, frames, jewellery holders, lights, and snow globes- they have it all! Heck! I WANT IT ALL. I bit the bullet and ordered an area rug from them about two months ago, and I’m still in love with it. I’m dying for a cute floor pillow to go with it!
I don’t really know how to describe the vibe I get from Urban Outfitters’ home stuff. A lot may say it’s hipster, but I just think HOME. To better explain the things I like about UO Home, I’ve added a few photos that are “apartment goals” for me.
(Mom, if you’re reading this, can I get plants and pillows for Christmas?)
That’s all for today’s post! Are any of you nuts about home décor? Anybody else obsessed with Urban Outfitters Home? I can’t wait to finish my room, maybe I’ll do a blog post on it once it’s done!! Or a “Room Tour” video!! I’m super excited.
Hope you’re all having a good week so far!
Until next time,
Hey guysss! It’s nice to be back. I just bought a new laptop yesterday and felt super motivated to get a blog post together. So here it is! (Also, HAPPY CANADIAN THANKSGIVING!)
These photos that I’m about to share were taken a month or so ago. It’s already starting to feel like Fall, so it makes me a little sad to look at them now. (I miss Summer!!)
But I’m also ready for all the cozy sweaters Fall brings. I’m already starting to layer up and wear my heavier jackets – it’s crazy how fast the seasons are changing! Sooner than we know it, Winter will be here… ugh.
Anyways, I’m back in my hometown with a new laptop and some free time, so I thought I’d share these photos that I have been wanting to post for a while now. My tablet that I normally used for blogging decided to stop working on me. The touchscreen died and the keyboard would pick and choose when it would want to respond to my typing. It was quite annoying. All of that is over now (thank goodness), so I’ll get on with these photos! (Jsyk they were taken by Deniz again! <333) They were taken downtown Toronto at Honest Ed’s. It’s a discount store that was opened in 1948 and is unfortunately, going to be closed down sometime in the near future. It’s sad that such a historic building is no longer going to be around. It’s definitely more of a tourist-y kind of place but it’s still something I think most people in Toronto have experienced. If not, maybe they should! Here’s a quick glimpse of a center alley of the building (it’s riveting stuff lol).

Those are the pictures – I hope you like them! I know it hasn’t been unreasonably long since my tablet died, but I feel a little rusty atm. Is it just me? Anyways, glad to be back (again). I hope my fellow Canadians are all having a wonderful Thanksgiving! I am definitely thankful to have you guys who think my blog is worth reading. I appreciate it a lot :))
(Happy 9th Birthday to my little sister, Anikah xx)
Until next time,
