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 Tuesday I hope everyone had a great weekend, mine was super busy but at least has Sunday to relax a bit and unwind. Its a full busy week for me though hopefully I can get everything needed done. I wanted to start the week off with a current “whats in my makeup bag” post, I have done one a while back and wanted to do an updated one as because a makeup bag never stays the same am I right?

So one thing I have realised is I carry so much more in my makeup bag then before. I believe because of current product obsession and also maybe because of the current season? I live in Toronto, ON so it is currently winter so every season I only carry around products I need or currently need that specific day.

Whats in my makeup bag? So first thing I absolutely need always when am out is the current lipstick or gloss I am wearing that day of course in case I need to reapply. Also what I always need next is sometimes I carry around tissue, the reason is to blot, throughout the day I sometimes get a bit oily around my T zone and chin area and I hate walking around without touching up my face. Another top need is my lash glue, I now wear lashes every time I do a full on face or even if i just do my brows I have to have lashes on. In case a lash pops off I always make sure to have my lash glue. Those are all my top beauty must haves in my make up bag that has to always be there no matter what season, I even keep a lip balm in my bag for dry lips to apply before my lipstick or even if though out the day I dont want lipstick on anymore and just a balm its there. That should be in every beauty bag especially in the winter.

For the other beauty products I have that usually do change related to season, is I always have different primers in my make up bag. This is usually a change for me on mood, if I feel like using one primer I haven’t to in awhile id use it also it depends how my skin is feeling. But the top primer I usually use 90% of the time is the Becca matte primer, this helps me not get a oily face though out the day. So in my beauty bag I also usually have my brow essentials laying in there that isn’t a beauty must I need through out the day but I usually say to myself ” What if I need to fix my brows?” and so because of that I walk around with that also. But to be honest I do carry around a bunch of random things in my beauty bag I dont really need. When I am applying make up I sometimes use products and just then dump it into my bag and I then just leave it and because of this when I do carry around my bag its just packed with some products I dont even need or least at the time. One of the things I noticed I have a lot in my beauty bag is moisturiser I carry around different kinds and this is because of what I just explained, at this time its not so much a bad thing because its currently winter here in Toronto, ON and its pretty bad at the moment and its always good to keep moisturised.


I always love keeping a good mascara in my bag also, and I honestly dont need that around but I love collecting beauty samples from Sephora and I love trying out new mascaras am currently loving the Marc Jacobs one. And I always just throw them into my make up bag as a current habit. A non beauty item I love keeping is a good hair tie, yes I carry around a hair tie this is because anytime I am out and am annoyed of my hair or I need to tie it up I always got one on me. And I know id end up needing one because there has been a couple times when it came in handy. Well ! that is pretty much it for whats in my make up bag, its not a big bag so I do not keep that much in there but hopefully what I may keep in there could help one of you with yours! Also I know again I have been late with Monday post due to being a mom and being sleep deprived hopefully I can get back on track and get my blog posts done by Sunday I hope everyone understands. I hope you guys have a great rest of your Tuesday !


Good morning everyone ! and welcome back to another blog post and happy Tuesday to everyone. I hope everyone is having a great start to their Tuesday, Valentines day is now over even though everyday should be valentines day. My valentines day went great it was filled with love and stress as I was also still being a mom but it went how i somewhat expected it to go. I realised sometimes its hard getting that dream date you envision when your a 24/7 parent, as long your significant other tried that all that matters.

Well my Thursday morning started off with a manicure, I was way overdue for one. My husband drove me to the nail bar, this was actually one of my valentines gifts as he paid for my manicure which was super sweet of him. After my nail appointment it was back to mommy duties and reality, when I came home my husband actually ended up surprising me with another gift he hid. After he dropped me off at my nail appointment he actually took our daughter with him to the store to pick up my gift. For over a year now I’ve been obsessing over having a keurig I love coffee, and he actually went out and got it! I was so surprised because the day before valentines day he told me the gifts he had planned on getting was not going to come in by tomorrow which he had lied. He also ended up getting our oldest daughter a heart shaped box of chocolates. We didn’t get to go out that night because he had to work so we put our plans for tomorrow the 15th, so it was pretty much mom duties for the rest of that day.

Later on that night my husbands calls me saying I got a package coming to the door, I really didn’t expect this I thought it was makeup. I answer the door and notice it was a package from Amazon the box was pretty small and really light so am wondering what it can be plus my husband seemed really excited. I quickly open the package and it was a iphone tripod mount, I was wondering why my husband just ordered a mount and not the tripod, my husband knows I’ve been really wanting one to start doing videos and use it for also blogging. Funny thing is he thought the tripod came with mount, and I had to simply explain to him its two separate things. I find my husband funny sometimes but I love that he goes beyond for me, and that what I took into consideration that moment. So since we couldn’t go out that night because my husband had to work we saved the date for the Friday night. So we went out to Moxies bar and grill one of my favourite restaurants, and had a wonderful time. We did a movie and dinner date night, so we went to watch escape room which by the way you all should go watch its so good. Then it was to sephora where he allowed me to pick what I liked and he would buy, which I don’t thing ill ever try and go in on Friday nights again. Overall this year valentines day was amazing hopefully next year me and my husband can go somewhere.

And that is my valentines day in an review, at my best. I cannot complain I could see my husband tried his best to make it special for us which is hard with a baby and a five year old. I wish we could go full on out but being parents you get what you can get. But thanks for reading, I was behind on posting this because you all know my posting schedule is Mondays at 9am and Wednesday at 3pm but yesterday was such an hard day my 3 month old was not having it yesterday. It was a really bad day for her and me I honestly got nothing done yesterday so I am behind for this post but tomorrow post will still be going up usual time. Thanks for all bearing with me and still supporting me, I hope you all have a great rest of the day.

Hello everyone and welcome back to another blog post ! Happy Monday I hope you’re Monday morning is going well so far. Mine of course and full of sleep deprivation as always but got to keep the blogs going, I am doing so well keeping up this schedule. I knew the more I keep up my blogging the sooner or later I’d find a posting schedule.

For today’s blog post is beauty related, let’s talk about the best beauty advice I’d received or even given. To be honest I somewhat remember some advice but this is a broad subject but I’d do my best. This is all the advice I have been given…

  1. Keep a clean face before applying make up! Wash you faceThis removes all dirt and pollution from your face so you can have a fresh face before applying make up. And it also helps your make up apply better !
  2. Match your foundation from your neck not your hand This is such an great advice I received in college in my make up program, your neck is actually the closet tone to your face NOT your hand.
  3. Don’t leave your make up brushes in the bathroomI mean how many of us wash our brushes and lay it down and sometimes don’t think to actually put it somewhere to dry? I know I’ve done it. Your going to want to lay your brushes near a window or dry clean area, when leaving it in the bathroom your brushes is actually picking up a lot of bathroom particles in the air and then this get applied to your face !
  4. Keep your makeup brushes clean frequentlyThis one is a hard one for me but yes the best thing to to constantly keep up with keeping your brushes clean. A clean brushes equals a clean pimple free face.
  5. Not everyone needs to contour their nose ! And contour the sides NOT the tip of the nose ! I know this one is going to be a hard one for a lot but yeah not all nose shapes need to be contoured, this is one of the best tips I’ve received in college. We all have different shapes so why do they all need to be contoured the same?

Now for the makeup advice I have given or most likely would have given to someone …

  1. Take care of you skin first then makeup Taking care of your face first helps achieve the best make up application and also helps keep your skin healthy.
  2. Apply mascara to your lashes not your falseThis is a trick I actually came up with (in lash post), applying mascara first helps your false blend in well with your natural lash and also maximises your false lash life span.
  3. Applying caster oil or Vaseline at night to lashes or brows help them growYup, its true ! These two products help moisturise your lashes and brows and when applied often your lashes and brows grow quit a bit.
  4. Brushing your brows often stimulates your brows to growThis practice helps stimulate the root and when done often this allows growth, am one to say it has worked for me.
  5. Have a separate towel for your face to dont use your “body” towelThis I actually never thought of, but if using the same towel for everywhere on your body and then used to wipe your face this can actually cause acne and pimples etc.

I hope some of these advice was helpful in some way, I am so sorry on late posting. I have been so busy this morning, I do now have a consistent posting schedule which are Mondays and Wednesdays. I will always post these days unless I got an extra blog post but I would let you know. Thanks for reading I hope you all have a great Monday !
