Hope you're all having a wonderful day. This is just a quick post to let you know that I am alive and still around haha. I finally took the plunge and am moving my blog to a new home :)
So far I've done every thing myself and have had moments of panic and anxiety thinking "oh no I've lost it all..." only to see that I haven't in the next minute. These moments are not fun but hello adrenaline!
You can check out my new home at http://www.thefashionistabubble.com/ it is not complete yet and am now tackling the nightmare that is moving my disqus comments. So bear with me and if you would like and it would mean a lot to me if you could give it a follow on Bloglovin
Thank you for sticking with me all this time!
lots of love xo

I didn't put a whole lot of though into this outfit but I will say that I really love how it turned out. Don't you love when that happens? rather than thinking about an outfit for so long, then when you put it together you realize it really was just better in theory and the end result is a floordrobe?
Yes we've all been there.
This is an outfit perfect for a dinner. Not too casual but just enough. Add a pair of black pumps some jewelry and you're good to go! Right now I'm on the hunt for the perfect pair of leather/faux leather leggings and once I do find them I cannot wait to pair them with this coat. This coat is so feminine and pretty I love it but it's also perfect for the weather we're having in Toronto right now, hot days, cooler nights.
Also for all you ladies who work in offices or need to look polished at work, I highly recommend these Ivanka Trump heels. They are so comfortable to walk in and look great with office wear as well. Their price is pretty decent too, considering they're leather and an investment.

Last weekend the weather was beautiful so we decided to take a little day trip out to Niagara On The Lake and Niagara Falls. We started our trip with a little Starbucks coffee of course, I cannot start a trip without coffee, fact.
Our original plan was to just go to Niagara Falls but on the way there I suggested we go to Niagara on the Lake as well since I knew the roads would be gorgeous with all the vineyards right now. I highly recommend this. After going the wrong way for about an hour (hehehe) but still enjoying the beautiful roads we found our way back and finally got to the beautiful little town.
We parked the car and then started walking around and just enjoying the weather and the sweet town. If you haven't been to Niagara on the Lake I would highly recommend it, specially on a sunny day like this weekend, wink wink!
When it was time for lunch we found ourselves at Grill on King. We had never been there but got drawn in because of the beautiful patio. After a quick check online, on our phone, we found that it had very good ratings so in we went.
Let me tell you, it did not disappoint. The service was wonderful, we had the best waiter and I'm sorry I didn't catch his name but thank you! Service at a restaurant is so important to me, even if the food is good, bad service will turn me off a restaurant.
Anyway but no fear because the food was pretty amazing as well. Fish and Frites for me, the burger for him. Everything was juicy and fresh. We ordered a bottle of Chardonnay and enjoyed our meal, taking our time enjoying the last bit of summer and each others company of course ;)
I would highly recommend Grill on King if you're going to visit the Niagara area :)
After lunch we made our way to Niagara Falls, had some ice cream, and took some cool instagram photos, you can check that out on my page here if you like :)
Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

Since we're almost into the month of October (say whaaat?) all I can think about is snuggling in cozy sweaters with a cup of hot chocolate and a good book. Also cozy Fall walks with the crunching of leaves under my feet and enjoying the crisp Fall air, I just can't wait! I am aware that come December I will be begging for warmer weather.
Even though in the next few days the weather in Toronto will be very warm I'm looking into sweaters and putting together my perfect Fall wardrobe. Seeing how I've been spending so much time looking for sweaters I thought I would share some of my favourites from Sheinside. They ship worldwide and the prices are pretty affordable. What is there not to love?
If you're going to order from them though know that it will take a little while so order in advance!

I know it's been a while but I'm back and today I want to share with you a transitional outfit.
Right now it's that time of the year where getting dressed in the mornings can be so confusing. Freeze in the morning, boil up in the afternoon.
One of my favourite ways of dealing with this is to wear t-shirts or thin shirts with a leather jacket over. Keeps you warm in the mornings but then in the afternoon you can just carry it or tie it around your waist if you like.
I am pretty much obsessed with my new bucket bag from New Look which I ordered through ASOS and apparently many of you love it too if the reaction on instagram was anything to go by! Unfortunately it's sold out but I'll link to alternatives in the outfit details! It's the perfect size and cute for any occasion really.
Also these combat boots are my favourite. They are boots so they give a bit of warmth but they have perforated sides so they don't get too hot, which again is perfect for the beginning of Autumn.
I wore this casual outfit for running some errands and a little Ikea trip :)

Last week I received my Influenster VoxBox and this time it contained the new mascara, Grandôise by Lancôme.
I've used Lancôme mascaras before and I've always had a great experience with them but this one is my favourite of the bunch so far.
This new mascara comes with a swan neck wand, which just makes application to all the lashes a dream. It curves over the top of the eye so you can reach the tiny lashes as well.
The formula for this mascara is very wet, which is something I prefer for myself but if you're not a fan then this might not work for you.
I usually have a problem with mascara transferring onto my lower lids but I've worn this every day since I received it and that has not happened once, even when I walked back from work on a hot, humid day.
It leaves my lashes full with volume and there is no clumping. It also leaves my lashes feeling soft rather than stiff. You can definitely see all of that in the photo above. I'm not wearing any make up other than the mascara :)
All in all I would definitely recommend this mascara if you are looking to splurge on a more high end/luxurious mascara! The price for this little gem is $35 and you can find it at Sephora and other department stores with a Lancôme counter.
Have you tried this mascara yet? What do you think about it?
Disclaimer: I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

You know when you put on an outfit and it just feels good and makes you confident? Well this outfit paired with my favourite bright pink Lipstick, did just that for me.
The skirt just has the right amount of edge to it and paired with studded pumps just felt perfect.
And yes I am currently obsessed with this Sheinside top!
I wore this for dinner on Saturday night and didn't get around to posting this outfit until today. I'm sorry! I'm just super busy with work and studying for my exam once it's done though I will get back to regular blogging.
Speaking of studying, I've been listening to One Direction as I study sometimes just to keep myself sane and I am loving their music, especially their Midnight Memories album. Anyone else?
