Purple Flowers


Enjoying the last few days of summer in this vintage floral dress !  I've been obsessed with it since I got it  from the Toronto Vintage Clothing Market ! It's from the 1960's and it has the most beautiful colours on it, its seriously the perfect summer dress! I of course HAD to pair it with my favourite white boots, giving it that extra 60's look to it. I don't know how I survived without these white boots they are actually my favourite shoes that I own. For my hair I just tied a strand of lace to give it a more feminine feel to it. Let me know what you guys think of this look in the comments below!

Madeline


Happy Monday!  Crazy to think that another week has gone by and its already mid august! Fall is just around the corner, and to be honest I'm ready.  I'm getting a little bored of summer clothes and how little I can do with them especially in the intense heat we've had this summer. In the fall and winter it easy to layer and create really interesting outfits using the same items. I find that a bit more difficult in the summer, especially when you are like me and mostly wear dresses. Accessories are key to changing up the look of an outfit in the warmer months, for this particular look its the red ribbon tied around the collar. I think this transforms the dress and gives it that slight preppy look you guys know I love. I also added a straw hat that I got from forever 21, which I now realize makes me look like Madeline (LOL) I also added some plain nude coloured block heels that I've worn to death this summer!  I think they are the perfect summer shoe because they give you a slight lift but can be worn with shorts and shorter dresses.  Let me know your thoughts on this look in the comments below !

Daisy


Hello Guys! Happy Wednesday ! I thought I would kick the day off by letting you know that I'm thinking of switching up my posting schedule and frequency. Lately I've been posting content every single day (Or at least I'm trying to) I usually post 3 times on my blog (Mon, Wed, Fri) and twice on my youtube channel (Tues, Thurs) as well as two instagrams daily. I'm finding that it might be a little too overwhelming, not only for myself, but also for you guys to keep up with.  I've been feeling slightly frustrated because I haven't been able to put as much time and effort into each post and video due to time constraints. which leads to some lower quality content with less engagement. Therefore I'm thinking of cutting some stuff back and only posting twice a week on my blog and once on my youtube channel (If you're not subscribed the link to my channel is here) I think this will result in higher quality content and more informative videos that don't seem as rushed. I'm really excited to get a little more creative and only post stuff I really love and I'm proud of. I'm also trying to learn some more video editing techniques to make my videos better than they currently are!  However there will be some weeks where I might be posting a but more if I do something exciting and end up having more content, an example of that would be my upcoming trip to Spain! I have a few posts and videos planned out, but I don't want to spread that out over an entire month because thats just annoying for you guys haha. so I will more than likely post more frequently during those 2 weeks. Let me know your thoughts on the new changes in the comments below as well as any recommendations of posts/videos to make while I'm in Spain! 

As for this outfit that I'm wearing... GUYS I am obsessed with these sunglasses !!!!  OK I know these might not be everyones cup of tea (Trust my BF hates them lol) but I think they are so groovy and amazing ! I got them in a random shop when I was in niagara on the lake and they were only like $15. I love that they sorta like like TV's I think its comical but amazing at the same time? Let me know what you think ? Would you wear these? I also recently got this little cropped knit... sweater? no its short sleeved...? knit top...? whatever it is, its amazing. I've been super into daisies lately and I'm not really sure why ?  I keep seeing daisy print things and I automatically want them! I actually have to stop myself form buying them because I know this is probably phase and I'll get over it in a few weeks (Anyone else get like that? cuz same)  So far I've been good and I've only bought 2 daisy print items, this being one of them, so I'd say I'm being really good with my shopping habits. Anyway I paired this top with these brick coloured flared pants, I love these! I actually got them at winners on clearance for like $5 ! And last but not least I am wearing these platform heels from H&M! I think this helps give the outfit a 1970's look which if you know me you know I love referencing another decade with my outfits. I think that is something I want to incorporate more of in my upcoming posts, as well as a bit more writing like in this current post! I'm really excited for new things to come and I hope you are to !

Summer Skin and Hair care with Garnier


Ah Summertime! With the start of August came another heat wave. I was sitting in my room when I noticed that my skin and hair were starting to look a bit dull and in need of some TLC. I began to think of how much of a toll our bodies take in the summer, in particular our skin and hair. I knew I needed some products that would reverse some of the damaged that has already been caused as well as some to help prevent any future damage from happening.  Starting with Skincare, It's always a good idea to invest in some products that will transform your skin because in the long run it will help you save money on makeup (Or no makeup at all!) well as helping your skin be as fresh as can be !  I knew that Garnier would be a great place to start because they carry so many products that would help with the problems I was having and at great prices ! 


People often associate winter with dry skin but the reality is that you shouldn't skimp out on moisturizing in the summertime. While you don't need as heavy of a moisturizer the summer it should definitely be a part of your skin care routine. In the summer we tend to spend more time outside going to the beach, hiking, amusement parks etc. All of these activities, while fun, can make your skin crave some addition care. Sheet masks are PERFECT after a long say in the sun. I rounded up the best Sheets masks from Garnier starting with the Anti Fatigue Mask infused with Lavender oils which helps dull fatigued skin (Perfect after those late summer nights.) The Mattifying mask hydrates skin while minimizing pores, Which if you are anything like me, become more visible after a hot summer day. The Glow-boosting mask , this will give you a boost of radiance, hydration and a gorgeous summer glow! you'll look like you just cam back from vacation ! and last but not least there is the super hydrating mask, which does exactly what it says, fuels your skin with hydration leaving you with soft and radiant skin !  


If you are looking for something to use on an every day basis there is the Garnier Skin active Soothing balm.  It's 3 products in 1 ! (Perfect for travelling!) It moisturizes during the day while nourishing at night ! You can also use it as a face mask if you need the extra hydration.  It does have a strong aloe very smell just something to keep in mind if you have scent sensitivities. But I think the best part about this product is that it doesn't leave your skin looking/feeling greasy which is such a bonus in the summer time. Its also made with rose water which has anti inflammatory properties that help with redness and and irritation on the skin, as well as removing oil and dirt from the pores. This product is also 100% vegan which is an added bonus if that's something thats really important to you, its also free form any Parabens, dyes and silicones. 


Hair care is also really important in the summer especially with all the damaged caused from being outside in the wind. So this Garnier Moisture lock shampoo and conditioner combo is exactly what you are looking for! It moisturizes your hair to help heal any damaged strands as well as strengthening your hair to prevent any future moisture loss. It's also made with cactus extract which will ensure your hair will look shiny but still have a weightless bounce to it. Not only does it help your hair look and feel amazing its also paraben free so you can rest easy knowing that you're not adding a harmful preservative to your hair, making the formula safe for everyday use. and  If you are wondering about the scent its a really clean cucumber type smell ! This is  really important to me when it comes to shampoo and conditioner, I love it when I move my hair around and I can smell it.  I find that it does linger until the next time you wash your hair!  I Hope these products help your skin and hair and give it the healthy kick and care it deserves!

Yellow Plaid Pants


Hi Guys ! Happy Friday !  This is my first official post in August and its crazy to think that some kids are already going back to school ! Here in Toronto kids don't go back to school till after labour day in September (After the first weekend pretty much) But with that in mind I thought I would bring some plaid because you guys know I love a good plaid moment. And what a better time than for back to school season. If you want to get yourself a pair of these Ah-mazing yellow plaid pants these are from Shein  and they are the Slant Pocket side plaid pant (Link here). I did notice that they are currently low in stock in these pants so here are some another great options if you are on the hunt for some plaid pants. These pink Tartan Plaid Rolled Hem Pants (Link Here) are amazing ! seriously considering getting myself a pair! There are also these Blue plaid pants that I recently talked about in a blog post (Link here) they are the Slant Pocket Self Belted Plaid Pants (Link here) OR if you want something more neutral there is also these flared ones (Link here!). I paired these pants with this oversized collar blouse from Zara, Unfortunately It is no longer available but literally any white blouse will do.  I added a sheer black sash around the collar for some some interest !  I used to do this ALL the time and I'm not sure why I stopped. For shoes I just wore some plain black heels. Let me know what you guys think of this look in the comments below!

Yellow Gingham



 Today is the first day of August and its rainy, windy and cold (ok... cold for August lol not actually cold) so I thought I would bring some sunshine by wearing this yellow gingham dress !  I recently got this dress from Shein  and it is the  Bow tie open back fluted sleeve high waist gingham dress (Link here) . You guys know I love a gingham print especially in a dress so I couldn't resist this one ! I also love that it ties in bows at the back ! such a cute feminine detail ! I paired the dress with some white heels and I tied my hair back with a white ribbon. Let me know what you guys think of this look in the comments below as well as make sure to follow me on instagram for more day to day pictures !

Glossy Summer Hair With Matrix Biolage


Every good hair style starts with a fresh base and that's exactly what you'll get from Matrix Biolage sugar shine shampoo and conditioner. It leaves your hair feeling and looking shiny which is perfect to match that summer tan! This shampoo and conditioner is also paraben and silicone free making it really gentle on the hair. The scent is sweet but not over powering... in my opinion it has a sort of cyrus cake smell mixed with that perfume you wanted to buy at the airport (Does anyone else always want to buy perfume at the airport?). It's a youthful scent but not the typical fruity ones you always find. I was also amazed at how shiny my hair looked from just one use! my hair was silky but not oily, which is a common problem with most shine shampoos/conditioners. 



As someone who has bangs my blow drier is my best friend after a shower.  You have to automatically dry your bangs if you want them to look polished and not like you just walked through a tornado. This doesn't really give me much time to leave my hair up in towel, which is what helps take out the excess water. It's a constant struggle because the back of my shirt always ends up getting wet so I tend to blow dry the ends a bit so that the water doesn't drip, then I let the rest of my hair air dry. Since I do this every time I wash my hair I  try to protect it from any possible damaged and a great product for that is the Matrix Biolage Blowdry Glotion. It helps protect your hair from any heat tool but also tames any frizz or fly aways you might have. it's a nice light weight formula that doesn't weigh the hair down which is important to me because my hair tends to be a bit more on the flat side. it also smells great ! I'm not really sure how to describe it other than it smells like "greens", not in a beauty section at whole foods way, but in a walking through a garden on the perfect summer day way.  



If you skip the blow dryer all together matrix has the perfect product for you it is the Biolage styling AiDry Glotion it helps to dry your hair a little bit faster and helps battle the frizz... which I personally have during the humid summer months. This product is a life saver when you need to quickly run out the door after washing your hair and don't have time to dry/style it. It wont miraculously transform your hair or make you look like you came out of the hair salon but it definitely adds a nice glossy finish to the hair. This product is perfect for travelling because who wants to spend time blowdrying and styling their hair when an adventure awaits!


If you want some extra shine you can always try the Matrix Biolage sugar shine illuminating mist !  It helps to illuminate any fly aways or frizz you might have, as well as provides heat protection... I personally use it as a finishing touch after I've already styled my hair to give it a glossy finish.  It's also a great product to use on the ends of your hair after you've added dry shampoo giving your hair and overall freshly-washed look. This is the same scent as the shampoo and conditioner so it has that lovely cyrus cake/Airport perfume scent. My hair has never looked this shiny so if you haven't tried any of these products I highly recommend them !

Visiting the HMCS Haida


Hi Guys, its finally Friday ! I've had such an odd week this week, it was jam packed with activities as well as blog/youtube planning so i feel like I haven't really had any downtown.... which is probably a good thing lol I get bored really easily. I have a really exciting post for you guys today because in the beginning of the week I had the opportunity to visit the HMCS Haida, a ship that served in the royal Canadian Navy from 1943-1963. Participating in the Second World War, the Korean Conflict and The Cold War. The Ship is now anchored down in Hamilton, Ontario and has been turned into a museum. The entrance fee is only a few dollars and its definitely worth the trip to see it!  You get to freely walk about the ship and go up and down the ladders, as they would've at the time. Thankfully my dress wasn't super loose so I was fine going up and down the ladder, I was also really glad that I brought flats just in case because I quickly changed my shoes before boarding the ship. If you are wondering my dress is vintage, I got it at the Toronto vintage clothing market and my bag is also vintage, my shoes however, are from Payless lol. If you are interesting in visiting the historic site click the link here.  I added some (phone) photos below that I took while I was there so that you get an idea of what it's like. But as someone who loves the humanity aspect of history I think its really worth going and experiencing it for yourself. Sorry for the random historical post, I know I typically just talk about fashion but i wanted to show this experience with you and tell you about it in case one  of you guys is interested in going !
