Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post! Happy Wednesday I hope everyone’s week is going great so far? For today blog post I decided to do a post on ” how fashion influences our everyday life”. I thought for this to be a very interesting topic because if you look at it its a very broad topic, but yet a good one. Well for one thing fashion is all around us there is no escaping it, I heard a very good interesting quote one day “without fashion we’ll all be naked” and if you think about it its actually true. Even if we cared deeply about fashion from what we wear or the labels we are supporting to the people who could care less what they put one what we all have in common is we all chose the item. Lets look at it this way, the ones who could care less about what they can have one in some way or another some thought in their mind they looked at what they was putting on and expressed who they are through their clothes.

Fashion influences from the moment we chose what to wear, what we look at to buy and to when trying to express ourselves through our outfits. Whatever we put on we all are saying this is who i am, were giving some clue to the world. Fashion is all around us everyday, and everyday we simply get influenced by it without even knowing. Everything simply has to do with persona preferences, from designers to what we see on the run way. To also what we buy and what we chose to wear all has to do with personal preferences. But dont we ever all wonder where fashion first started? Fashion all started in the 19th century, with Charles Fredrick worth he was the first designer to get his name sewn into garments. And before the mid 19th century haute couture and the ready to wear didn’t exist. Major pieces for females was “made to measure” or made by seamstresses, and most of the clothing was made for women for their figure and was more a one on one with their dressmakers. Its crazy to how far fashion has came since then, how its reached a height where we all can express ourselves through what we wear and how designers can simply now get inspiration from anywhere.

Fashion plays a big part in society, its all plays a part in social, cultural and economic changes that happen everyday. It plays a big impact on times, this is what defines generations this is what separates period of time in history.

Coco Chanel said ” “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”

Fashion often represents our self, whether we love fashion or not what we choose everyday becomes a part of us. We literally can go about our day to day tasks and see a lot of people through out the day and see what their wearing and get a hint of who they are through what their wearing. Fashion is an art, where we all express our self through fabric, almost like a moving painting. If I had to chose a few places to see fashion expression id have to choose New York and Paris, I would love to just look at all the fashion expression there and honestly not get bored. What I love about fashion is it never ends their always going to be more self expression always new collection and always someone wearing something. Always going to be some type of trend going on and one dying out.


One big thing is is a big influence on fashion is social media, this is the biggest influence when it comes to seeing the latest clothing item or even whats in and whats not. We dont even need to look it up because its all over social media, and also all over society you can just tell whats in because everyone starts wearing it. Fashion is such an important thing we all underestimate it, and not realise how much of an influence it has on society and culture.How do you all perceive fashion? Here are some interesting quotes I always loved on fashion, hope you all enjoyed today’s blog post next blog will be posted Monday at 9am EST time!

“Don’t be into trends. Don’t make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way to live.” – Gianni Versace

“What you wear is how you present yourself to the world, especially today, when human contacts are so quick. Fashion is instant language.” – Miuccia Prada

“Fashion is about dressing according to what’s fashionable. Style is more about being yourself.” – Oscar de la Renta

“I think there is beauty in everything. What ‘normal’ people perceive as ugly, I can usually see something of beauty in it.” – Alexander McQueen

“You can have anything you want in life if you dress for it.” —Edith Head

Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post. Happy Monday! I am so happy I will get this week to have a bit of relaxation due to my daughter being on spring break. This gives me more time to work on my blog and do more Pinterest, I am officially on the Pinterest obsession. For today’s blog post I am finally doing my review for my Huda beauty foundation and the Morphe palette I got awhile back. I wanted to use these products a couple times before having my thought on these products.

So I got the Huda beauty faux filter foundation, I have been dying to try this foundation out. I have heard really good things about this product and also all the tutorial video have pulled me in. This foundation is full coverage foundation, it has 30 shades it’s a natural finish and this foundation is for combination to oily skin type. I so far absolutely love this foundation it is now my top foundation, I have been using it every time I been doing my make up. It does what it says it has the best coverage and it feels hydrating on my skin, it blends in so well. I love how gives off a smooth silky look and I find it holds up a good time throughout the day. I would honestly purchase this again and again, the first time I used this foundation I did end up breaking out but I would not say maybe it was the foundation I honestly do not know if it was but I still would purchase this. I would love to try the primer with this product, I might just end up giving it a try and see how well they work together. Overall this was a well worth buy, I would consider you all giving this product a try if you haven’t!

The next product I got was the Morphe (just noticed I have totally been spelling the name wrong) 9B bronzed babe eye shadow palette. I am not a person to wear eye shadow but I automatically fell in love with this palette as son as I seen it on Sephora. This palette has nine creamy shimmering shades, it has very pigmented shades which is what made me party fall in love with this product. Most palettes I have used over the years the colours haven’t been very pigmented and that is one of the biggest disappointments. So far using the palette I have nothing bad to say, the colours show up well and blend well also. I know one of the hardest problems for me was finding palettes that have a good amount of shades that will look good with my tone of skin and this does the job! I honestly love a good neutral tones and bronze tones anything that is more in the fall scheme which this palette is. 

 

If I had to purchase this product again I would honestly purchase it again, it is the first palette I dont regret purchasing. The colours are true to tone as online, and I also love the packaging also. I was not disappointed in this shopping trip, I would recommend you all to go check that palette out. And that is my honest review on these products, thanks to you all for taking time for reading my thoughts. I hope this review helped on your thoughts on these products or even brand, look out for my next post which will be up Wednesday at 9am EST time.

Happy Wednesday everyone I hope everyone is having a great Wednesday so far? For today’s blog post I am going to talk about my 5 top current favourite fashion pieces I use almost all the time with whatever I wear. Either its all or some and this is my current for the season, some of these pieces I could probably use past winter also.

So my first two pieces I am in love with and pretty much am using all the time during the winter season is my zara belted fur coat and my fashion drug inspired Luis vutton backpack purse. I absolutely love this coat I did a post about it awhile back because my husband got this for me right before I gave birth to my second daughter and from then I pretty much am wearing this jacket if the weather inst too bad.

The bag is my top current go to bag, I pretty much use this bag for every outfit I wear from relaxed to chic. I realised this bag is actually a great winter season piece, this is because I hate using certain bags in the winter to me it’s just a hassle and this is more a handbag but a backpack kind of way. Another reason I love this bag is because you can switch around the handles anyway you like! I purchased this item in the fall on Fashion Drug, which is a site that sells Inspired designers bags. The last time I checked the bag is still there but I believe it will soon be gone due to them introducing a new collection.

Another item that is part of my top favourite is a current new purchase. I haven’t got to wear them yet but am already so in love with them! My snakeskin sneakers from Zara, these shoes were getting sold out quick I am lucky I got to purchase them last minute. I tried these on and they feel super comfy I just hope it isn’t a hassle breaking them in. I am not sure if they are still online but they could be. This next piece is something I would so pair with my sneakers which is my Zara leather jacket, if am not wearing my fur jacket I’d most likely be wearing this one. My husband bought me this one about two years ago now and that’s another reason I absolutely love this jacket. It’s super comfy pretty thick and a great piece to have in the closet. My last item would probably be my black borg fur coat, yes another coat. I never noticed but I guess I’ve been loving a lot of coats this season, I love wearing this piece when it comes to more relaxed looks and I don’t want to dress up too much. I purchased this from Forever 21 online I find that it’s more easier to shop online when it comes to forever 21. These are all my top 5 favourite pieces that are in my closet, I for now can’t wear an outfit without at least one or more of them incorporated in them. I hope you all enjoyed today’s post, happy Monday! Look out for Wednesday blog post at 9am EST time.

Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post. Happy Monday I hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine of course was really busy a bit stressful but hopefully this week is much smoother. For today’s post I am going to do a February wrap up for my blog.

February has been such a great month when it came to blog planning, it has also helped me figure out too my whole blogging schedule. I also decided to set goals:

  • Pass my views from 2018
  • Have posts ready to go
  • Achieve more traffic
  • Tackle Pinterest

I realised setting goals every month helps me stay organised and achieve what I need for my blog. I did not get to pass my view amount from last year February but I am still proud because it was somewhat close. I finally achieved setting up my blog posts ahead of time! I had my blog posts for the whole of February, this helped me stay organised and have time to type my posts and have them up and ready for Monday.

My top goal currently every month is to achieve more views, I really want to pass my view number for my blog which means more promoting. This is where Pinterest comes in, I have been hearing how Pinterest makes a huge difference in traffic to your blog so I have been influencing this into my blog work and I am still slowly learning. I decided to put in more time with promoting and marketing my blog, overall I am happy I got to achieve some of my goals and learn new things to help me improve my blog. I hope you enjoyed my February wrap up, next blog post will be up on Wednesday at 9am EST time! Have a great Monday!
