Make a statement with MAC’s new Liquid Lipstick

I love a bold lip especially in the summer when the temperature rises and our skin starts to bronze. Liquid lipstick offers a more saturated look and stains the lips for a longer wear. The application brush allows for precise definition and fill, and offers a timeless liquid-sued finish.

I picked up one of MAC’s Retro Matte Liquid Lip Colour called Personal Statement and boy is it loud. This punchy colour is a bright cool pink that is sure to capture attention. It lasts for hours without caking or cracking and doesn’t dry out your lips Continue reading “Make a statement with MAC’s new Liquid Lipstick”

Easy Fabulous Outfit #ootd

I don’t know about you, but some days I love relying on an outfit that is effortless to pull together but still looks great. The perfect trick to achieve something like this is with a simple staple dress that can be jazzed up with a few accessories. Look for a dress that is simple but also has a bit of pizazz, like a unique texture, pleating, or maybe even a funky pattern.

Spring Brights

Warmer weather calls for punching up your wardrobes with some brights! Tuck away the dark blacks and navys and pull out the rosy fuchsias, aqua blues and sunny yellows for a little colour action this Spring.

One of my favourite colours to wear after ditching heavy winter coats is sky blue; a beautiful and versatile shade that works with almost every skin tone. In my #ootd, I paired a sky blue blazer with a spotted yellow and orange peplum top, colours that best complement blue, for some waist line embellishment.

My Handmade Circle Skirt

Ever since I watched Grease for the first time, I’ve loved circle skirts. There’s something elegant about the natural pleating and the way it sways when you walk. Love them so much that I decided to make my own!

Summer to Fall Transition Outfits

Transitioning from summer to fall attire can be tricky, especially when it’s still warm out. To help, I’ve pieced together an outfit that can be easily recreated. Working the monochrome trend, I paired a white spaghetti halter tank from Forever 21 with a staple black ripped skinny jean from Pacsun. I threw on a classic pair of converse and my Rayband shades, and headed outdoors for some fresh air. As the days cool, layer on a leather jacket and and swap the runners for a pair of booties, and you’re all set.

Bidding the summer adieu, Continue reading “Summer to Fall Transition Outfits”
