• Bold Lips for Summer: The Best Shades of Pink & Red for Your Skin Tone

    Happy Wednesday my sweet friends!

    I mentioned in a recent blog post how I love what a bold lip can do to the most simple outfit. It can dress it up and make you look more put together without much effort. Not only do I love it for that reason, but I also think it's a great way to add that summer flare to an outfit as well. We often embrace color much more this time of year, so why not smear some color on our lips? It allows for us to go rather simple with the rest of the makeup look as well. What I've been doing lately is skipping the liner and piling on the mascara. It's one less step you have to worry about and we all know that it can take near to forever to try and match each eye when it comes to that wing. Add some blush, a little bit of highlight and you're good to go.

  • 9 Straw Bags That Will Instantly Elevate Your Summer Outfit

    Happy Monday my beautiful friends!

    I've really been loving the trends that we've been seeing these past few seasons. I feel, for the most part, they're all pretty practical to wear for the everyday, one of which is the straw bag trend. It's not new to this season though, we first saw it take off last season with the cult favorite (literally) Ark Bag from Cult Gaia. I've said this time and time again that what I love about when a trend takes off, is that we begin seeing different variations of it surface. This essentially allows for everyone to embrace the idea of the trend in a way that reflects or merges well with one's personal style or at least inspires us to think a bit outside of the box with a unique piece that still feels very much like ourselves.

    Happy Friday my lovely friends! 

    I've spoken about my love for monochromatic looks so many times and the flattering effects they can have in both slimming and elongating the body. I've also shared many tips on how to bring them to life by adding and mixing up the details, since they can easily fall flat on the body. Most of the times when I wear them, I'll throw in a hint of another color or a neutral to break things up a bit.

    Happy Wednesday my beautiful friends!

    For the past several weeks, I've been seeing so many cute button detailed pieces at some of my favorite stores and on my Instagram feed. It's mostly in a vertical design on tops, dresses and skirts, which makes for such a flattering detail, since it downward, visually slimming and elongating the body. The buttons are also quite notable either in a larger size or a sharp color contrast to the piece itself. 

     

  • Caudalie Deep Cleansing Exfoilator Review

    Happy Tuesday friends!

    If you follow me on Instagram (you totally should ;) and happened to watch my IG story on my Sephora sale haul, then you'd remember me sharing this Caudalíe Deep Cleansing Exfoliator. I was in need of a new exfoliator because the one I'd been using wasn't doing the job for me. I have combination/oily skin with larger pores, so I need an exfoliator that's gentle, yet still abrasive enough to clean everything out and help minimize my large pores. 

    Today I want to share what my experience has been since using it for the past month or so, as promised. 

     

  • A Perfect Summer Fabric

    Happy Monday my beautiful friends!

    On Friday, we talked about how lace is a great fabric for summer nights especially. If you missed that post, you can give it a read here!

    Today, we'll be discussing yet another fabric that's ideal for the warmer months, particularly when going the more dressy route for either work or to dress up a denim look and that's satin. 

    It's a fabric that's been trending for quite a while, mainly since the 90s comeback began, as well as the pajama trend. Many luxe pajamas are done in this fabric pointing to the reason as to why it's great for the summer, it's cool and comfortable. The soft texture brushes the skin in a way that's comfortable, not to mention it looks luxe. I also love the fluid effect it has when worn in a loose, flowy fit, like the shirt I'm wearing.

    Happy Friday my beautiful friends!

    The temperatures are beginning to rise and it's feeling more like summer and I couldn't be happier! I love being outdoors and summer date nights are my favorite; I love dining outside when possible. Though our summer dates will be looking a lot different these days with little miss Aviah, but we don't mind at all! Even though the little one will be tagging along for our evening dates, that doesn't mean that I'll be forgoing my dressed up chic outfits entirely. Since we'll be cutting the nights short, wearing my heels and impractical lace tops is totally doable ;)

     

  • Pai-Shau: Tea Infused Haircare Review

    Happy Wednesday my sweet friends! 

    For Mother's Day, I was contacted by Pai-Shau, a tea infused haircare brand, and was kindly gifted a trio gift set containing two products from their hydrating line and an infusion product to review. I was so intrigued by their innovative concept of infusing an assortment of teas, vitamins, and antioxidants. I've never heard of a brand that's done this before, so I was eager to try these products out to see what they'd do for my hair.

     

  • Dressing Up a Graphic Tee

    Happy Monday my beautiful friends!

    You all know how much I love graphic tees, I've talked about them quite often here on the blog and wore them a lot when I was pregnant especially. I noticed that I often talk about dressing them up with blazers (see examples here & here), but there are definitely other ways you can dress them up, such as with a pencil skirt, as I've done today.  The one I'm wearing is faux leather, so it's not heavy for the summer months, making it a great option for a summer night out when you know it'll be a bit cooler.

    Happy Friday my beautiful friends!

    I'm sure many of you, like me, find yourselves on a crunch for time when getting ready to head out the door sometimes. On days like this, there's usually something that happens that disturbs the flow of me getting ready and before you know it, I look at the clock and I have about 20 minutes to get both me and Aviah ready to head out the door. Whether you're a mom on the go, heading to work or school, we all experience this every now and then and want no fail looks that we can turn to for days like this as a result.
