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.

Good morning everyone, welcome back to another blog post. I hope everyone week is going great so far, it’s Thursday already I feel like this week has been going by so fast. I have been so busy lately so much has been going on it’s crazy, I feel like 2019 so far for me been throwing a lot at me but I am trying to handle everything without freaking out. Sorry for the random uploads I have been trying to upload whenever I can as possible, I don’t want to abandon my blog and end up to busy to post anymore. I am in the process of moving and I am trying to find somewhere and still attend to my blog and social media pages while run a house and deal with my five month old. There is other things going on too but I won’t get into that as yet. But for today’s blog post I wanted to show my quick purchases I made this weekend, because I got I product I really wanted to try for awhile now and also wanted to see who else has been using this product or found it helps.

So I had to make a quick Sephora run this weekend, I had finished my eyebrow pencil and need a new one and one thing about me is if I am not wearing make up I at least need my eyebrows done and a pair of lashes and a gloss and am good. And to be honest am not a fan of dip brows or pomades or anything like that I absolutely hate them we just don’t get along and I can never get my brows the way I want them using those products. Also am a fan of a nice natural realistic brow, nothing wrong with a bold brow it just doesn’t suit me at all. So my favourite brow product I fell in love with that gets my the brow am looking for is Benefits precisely my brow pencil. I love it I always buy the $17.00CAD one, just cause am trying to save some coins to be honest. I find the fine tip is great for filling out the shape you want and doesn’t give a over powering colour to your natural brow, and the whole point to filling out your brow is to complete a full brow and fill in that choppy look. And I feel like that product does just that and maybe even more, it honestly lasts pretty long too.

So the other product I was looking to get is the Tatcha dewy spray, I wanted the mini size because I wanted to try it out first because it was between that or the new Anastasia Dewy spray. Unfortunately they stopped selling the mini size in the store and I would have had to purchase it online. So I decided to go with another product that I have been dying to try and I have been seeing it almost everywhere and heard nothing but good stuff about. So I decided to get the SOL DE JANEIRO Bum Bum Cream. So I heard that the product smells really good especially the body mist, I have got to smell it when I was at Sephora and let me tell you guys the things I have been hearing is absolutely true that body mist is one of the best smelling sprays I ever smelled. I will be going back to buy that spray, I decided to get the small $25.00CAD size. The reason I decided to go with the smaller bottle is to make sure I love the product, I have bought bigger sizes of products from Sephora in the past and end up not feeling the product. And one thing about me is I am one lazy return, I can buy products and if i end up not liking it instead me getting up and returning it or least switching I dont I throw it in the section of “not using”. I know Sephora has a return thing but I never take advantage of it which I should. But anyways I never tried the cream yet but I will do an review on it soon once I get a feel of how I like the product.

That is all for my quick Sephora buys, pretty quick and small right? Thanks for reading, let me know if any of you tried the bum bum cream or least any products from the line. What is your favourite go to brow product? Let me know! Remember to check in for my next upload!

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!

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.
