September Favourites

1.10.14


October 1st already! Yikes! My favourite month has now come and gone. On the bright side, only 3 more weeks until I leave on vacation to Hawaii! Quick September Favourites post today, highlighting a couple things I've been loving this month.

Kiehl's Hydro-Plumping Retexturing Serum Concentrate: Whoa what a mouthful! But such a wonderful product. I have oily skin, but it still needs moisture, especially going into the colder months. This product is fab for oily skin because of it's serum like consistency, and keeps my skin hydrated all day long without getting greasy. You should definitely check it out.

Tom Ford Lipstick in Wild Ginger: A Labour Day Weekend purchase from a quick trip to Toronto. The perfect orangey-red, and there's something really special about the Tom Ford lipstick formula.

Mackage Rubie Purse: I've been using this purse non-stop for the past month when all I need are the essentials. I love the mix of textures with the smooth leather and the pony hair. And in classic navy, it's good any time of year!


Kate Spade Racecar Scarf: Unfortunately now sold out, I picked this up in the end of summer sales on Shopbop. I've been very patiently waiting for cooler weather to wear it. It was a great accessory during my quick trip to Jaguar Land Rover HQ a couple weeks ago (if you don't know what I'm talking about, check my Instagram). I also love my New York map scarf!

Urban Decay Naked2 Basics Palette: I am now certain that I like it even more than the original. I'm been using Stark all over the lid and Skimp as a highlight. Cover looks a little scary but is the perfect crease color with great reddish undertones for Fall. Finally, I use Undone as a smoked out liner. Perfection! Check out this post for a comparison photo between the original and this one.

Giorgio Armani Maestro Blush in 500: The perfect rose shade for every day wear. And I'm going to stop there before I launch into an unstoppable ode to Armani Beauty. Expect a full post soon. Basically, I went to try out just this. Really! I just wanted this one product. I left the counter with the blush, foundation, CC cream, and a lipstick. #feelingspendy

The Weekend Edit Vol. 15

28.9.14



After the craziness that was last week, taking it easy this week was awesome. I didn't have any concrete plans, finally did some decent groceries, and got back to the yoga studio. Missing my weekly yoga sesh is something that I totally notice in my life. I think it's what keeps me sane. I also have a home practice, but there's something almost magical about the yoga studio I go to.

In other news, I found out something really exciting on Friday...I'm headed to Brussels in December!! Woohoo! These work trips are always so unexpected and I'm always so grateful to be able to travel like I do. Can't wait! If anyone has been to Brussels and has suggestions, let me know in the comments below!

You never know what will happen, so I always keep a phone battery booster in my purse. I've also just ordered this one for when I travel. Isn't it cute!

So far I haven't been very successful at food photography. This article is so in depth and has a ton of great tips. Definitely worth checking out.

Fall beauty trends to try! Straight hair and a bold red lip have been my go-to lately.

I am the queen of sleep, so for anyone who makes fun of my excessive need to sleep, you should read this.

Beauty Bits Vol. 1

26.9.14


TGIF!! I've made some naughty little beauty purchases in the past couple of weeks, and I decided to save them up for a Beauty Bits post. Mostly new launches, and one item that I somehow missed and don't know how because it's awesome!

Jogging pants + Chambray shirt

24.9.14



The first outfit from my Fall Capsule Wardrobe. Yay! And this one is a good one. A really good one.
I realize that I am lucky that I don't have a strict dress code at work, and so I can experiment a bit with my wardrobe. The priority for me is also comfort, as most days I am running around all over the place. Enter these printed jogging pants from J. Crew. I think it's love.
