Hey everyone, welcome back to another post. Finally I am getting a Christmas related post up. I am feeling the Christmas spirit these days ! And now I my post you will get to know the three things that get me in this mood. Now before I start I am so happy I got to get a post up this week. Also I know my normal post days are Monday’s and Thursdays but lately I’ve been way off my posting schedules. And because of that don’t just lookout for those post days but just know I will at least put out a post once a week. Or well at least try to that’s my goal.
Who doesn’t enjoy Christmas music? I know my husband doesn’t as much so I know their is quite a few of people who don’t. But that’s gets me in the spirt for the end of November. I swear as soon as it’s November am ready for those Christmas songs. Although their quite repetitive I never ever get tired of hearing Christmas music. I love putting it on through out the day while I clean and get things done and I always love letting it play while I put my girls to sleep at night. I can tell you now am for sure going to miss those jingles once December is over.
Lights are another way of feeling good! From ever since I was a kid I love seeing those Christmas lights up. I must say it’s enjoyable while driving throughout Toronto especially downtown also. I love seeing the different colors and decorating ideas each house has. My oldest loves seeing all the different lights while we are out and about. This gets me in a great mood.
Now I know for some the downside to Christmas is spending. Trust me it hurts my pockets by November knowing the amount of money I’ll be losing or the possibility of even using credit cards around that times hurt my head. But I love the feeling around this time of giving. I already love the joys of shopping and I love it more giving to family and buying for my two girls. I feel it’s even more exciting at this age when their kids. I always try to remember to take in this time as much as possible when their this small because before you know it they will be teenagers.
And those are my three things that get me feeling good around Christmas. Thank you all for reading tonight’s post. What are some things that keep you going around Christmas time?

Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post. For today’s blog post I wanted to do a quick post on my recent fall purchases from Fashion Nova. Fall is coming and lately I have been in the mood and have started buying all my fall gear. I did not do much of a purchases I so far got three items I really wanted and need and all items are still on Fashion Nova for purchasing!
The first purchase I bought from Fashion Nova is a leather moto jacket. Now let me tell you I have been looking everywhere for one that was not to pricey. I have been on Pretty Little Thing, Missy Empire and MissPap and I haven’t been loving the prices. Also I instantly saw that fashion nova just added one and I just had to get it right away. I ordered an extra small and the jacket carries an over size fit so it fits me just right. The jacket has the right amount of thickness to it, you can honestly wear this on a pretty chilly day with a hoodie and you shouldn’t be too cold. One of my favorite details about this jacket was the fur inside the whole jacket. I am in love with this detail you feel so warm. And therefore you can wear this jacket in the most days in fall. You can dress this jacket up or down. Pair with a cute pair of jeans or tights or even with a cute sweater dress. If you’d like to purchase the item you can find it HERE.
The next item I got in my fall purchases was a cute winter jacket. The funny thing about this jacket is I have been eyeing it for most of this year. The jacket comes in three different styles, black & pink, green and red or camo and red I believe. The jacket i got is actually the most popular style so that sells out quickly. I ordered a size small and after trying it out the jacket fit pretty well. The only thing about the fit is that there was comments about the sleeves fitting short. Good thing is the sleeves did end up fitting me perfect I am assuming if you have pretty long arms it might fit short. One of the top details I loved about the winter jacket was the pink fur hood and the fur inside. i love how warm the jacket looks, the thickness is great and the fur inside makes it ten times more warm. If you would like to purchase the item you can find it HERE.
Hooded Sweater Dress
The third and last item I ordered in my fall purchases is a hooded sweater dress. I got this in a size small and it fits baggy and reaches about my knees. I love this hooded dress at the moment, its actually my favorite right now in my closet. The sweater is really comfy and I love how its not too baggy but fits just right. The sweater is pretty warm but maybe not for a really cold day. But there is enough room to wear another light sweater underneath. All of these items are still up for purchase. If you would like to purchase the hooded dress you can find that HERE. Thanks to everyone for reading, remember to like and leave a comment. if you haven’t read my last post you can check it out HERE.
Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post. Happy Wednesday I hope everyone so far is having a great start to their morning. I am so excited that in about a week or so I will be officially moving and I can finally get back to my space for blogging and get so much more posts up for you all. Its so hard to blog and take photos as my space is very limited due to having so many boxes around me. But as soon as I officially move you all of course will know, as for now I am working with what I can. For today’s blog post I am posting my part two for my zara haul because I love zara that much that I bought that many things that I had to break it up into two blog posts I know I know I have a serious problem but you all will be seeing a lot of zara hope that isn’t a problem? lol
So I am not exactly a shorts girl I actually haven’t really bought shorts since a child, I actually just started buying some because am so into the “cycle shorts” style and am loving how comfortable they are and I actually think am going to live in them this summer. I saw these cute leopard shorts and automatically had to get them they were the cutest! These went for 45.90 CAD but since I bought them online it came about little over $50.00.
I also bought these cute black flats I noticed they will go really well with the leopard shorts for a dress up look, the flats were about $45.00 CAD. My wardrobe was really lacking a lot of dress shoes and outfits so I decided to invest in a lot of dress clothing or at least clothing I can dress up or down.
This bag is a recent buy from zara, I got this iridescent bag, now this is something I normally wouldn’t buy t would be out my comfort zone but I decided to step outside of the box and purchase it. I would pair this up with most of my summer outfits that have a bit of colour or even if I decide to wear something toned down I would pair this bag for a pop of colour. This year I decided to redo most of my wardrobe and revamp it and change up my style a bit, my closet always and mostly consist of black clothes and I honestly cant live like that anymore and am starting to find it a bit boring. So lately I have been buying pieces even if its shoes or bags with colour to spice up my closet. I personally find fashion or even beauty fun and it doesn’t hurt to play around with it and show your personally style.
This last item I got is another recent item I got which is this cute leather skirt, I literally got it unplanned in the store. I actually have bought a denim mom jean high rise shorts but when I got home and actually tried them on they didn’t fit at all I literally couldn’t button the shorts or zip them up thanks to mom tummy lol. It hurt to return the item and I planned on switching for a bigger size but ended up running into this leather skirt and forgot about the denim shorts and ended up going with the skirt. So this skirt and the shorts were $39.90 CAD, thankfully the skirt fit when I got home I honestly was worried lol I cant wait to wear it out this summer another item that can be dressed up or down. And that is it for my haul for now of course because I am always buying and ordering items from zara I seriously have a problem and am trying to at least cut down because we all know zara is a bit pricey. Thanks for reading remember to comment and like I always love hearing from you all, let me know what your favourite item is? Or what is something you’d rock? Thanks for reading and talk with you all soon!
Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post. Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend, it’s back to a full long tiring week for me. Sorry I didn’t get to put up a post for Friday I had a hectic Thursday and then Friday was pretty tiring due to me packing for my big move for the end of June. This post is long overdue and actually took more of my time I really wanted to get to this post I am super excited to show what I’ve got for my summer wardrobe pieces, I actually already posted what i got to my Instagram lately I am super excited to style these together.
The first item is a cream knitted dress I got, i found this dress in the special prices for only $19.00 CAD. I always love looking into the special price section whenever I can because I always try to get the most out of zara when ordering online just because of delivery fees ranking up the prices. Most of the time its always a difference from shopping in person then from online, I love the texture of this dress I love how I can style this up or down in various ways and how it fits me like a glove it was worth the order.
This next piece are these cute summer sandals I absolutely love them because they’re really versatile I can pretty much style them with any outfit, that is what I love about them. These shoes were $49.90 CAD, they go already so well with the cream knitted dress I showed earlier. I can’t wait to wear them this summer another worth the buy!
I also got this cute Mini city bag that is snake print and bright green, as soon as I seen this I literally had to have it for my summer word robe. I feel like this piece can go with almost anything I wear in the summer plus am kinda into snake-print at the moment to be honest, and what I have noticed is that I love it on shoes and accessories but not so much on clothes. This bag went for $39.90CAD which isn’t bad considering the quality and style.
Next is another item I thought that was just super cute because it just brought back memories, which is a cute vintage cartoon T-shirt. Zara has a huge collaboration section with a lot of cartoon t shirts you’ve might have seen some or even other influencers wearing them. I love that they brought that to their store for the type of style Zara is I actually wouldn’t expect that to be honest but I love how they are styling vintage cartoon with their elegant style. I have already bought two shirts you might have seen my other post on Instagram with the Tinker bell T-shirt and this one I got has all the Disney princess on then and I saw that Tiana was on it so you know I just had to get that! You can pair these with cycle shorts for the summer or even cute jeans or jean shorts or even cute maxi skirt and make it a dress up yet down style.
I did buy other items for this haul but I do not want to make this haul super long, so I will be doing a separate part two post on the rest of my four items for the next blog post. I hope you all enjoyed my little mini haul post I just had to do a post on these items I am super excited for the summer I feel like its been cold forever and am all about the colour for accessories. What are your go to style piece for this summer? Let me know in the comments I always love to hear from you all! Remember to comment and like! Thank you all for reading see you Wednesday post hopefully I can get it up by then.
Hey everyone, and welcome back to another blog post. Happy Thursday I hope everyone week is going well, for today’s blog post i wanted to share my kids thrift haul in review of some recent purchases I did and how the whole trip went. So funny story my at the time three month old needed a new swing and my mom decided me and my husband to go to ” Once upon a child” a thrift store in Toronto for kids and babies and sell our old one and buy a new used one from there.
I was so hesitant on this because to be honest I am not much of a thrifting person, I never have for me or my oldest most of her clothing comes from zara. So me and my husband get there and I start looking around and omg guys I start getting carried away and picking up items. I have so far made about two trips so far or three and I have bought so much items that came up to about $70.00 CAD, that is about the same amount for three items i buy at zara.
I swear it has became an obsession for me because now whenever I get money that’s all I think about thrifting. I am happy for the least I gave something a try and stepped out my comfort zone, now don’t get me wrong there is nothing wrong with thrift stores but that was the first time I ever really been in one. For my overall experience it was great, the clothing most is new and the ones used is actually not to bad looking you cant really tell for the most that they are used. The service I had was okay I received great service the only thing I think that part of their service that is not so good is how much they give you in selling. It seems what you give to sell they dont pay you as much as what the item may cost, I have picked up some designer clothes from there and they didn’t cost much seriously i paid for some for about $5.00 CAD.
I know it is a thrift store and the whole idea is buying a lot for less but if I paid for an item for a lot I would want at least a decent amount of money back. Another down side was that they sell a lot of cute clothes from newborn till about 3 years and I noticed for my oldest daughter which she is about 5 going on 6 they didn’t have good clothes to me for her age. Pretty much what id buy there for her is about dresses and pj’s. The items I did get were some dresses for my oldest because it was all I can find that i liked, and for my four month old I got some cute shorts for her and some cute outfits I got to find a good decent amount of clothes. My most favourite items from both of them if I had to chose would be one of the dress from my oldest and this cute jeans jacket I found for my youngest. Overall I would say I am now a 100% thrift shopper, I know for sure ill be spending a lot of time there. Thanks for reading, because of a busy day yesterday I did not get to post yesterday I hate when I have to switch up the schedule due to a busy week but I am happy I at least got to get it up today. Monday usual post will be up at 9am EST time for sure, have a great rest of your Thursday!
