My light, take me there again

Hello lovelies,
How is everyone's weekend so far? gorgeous I hope!
Today I wanted to share with you some outfit photos I (well my photographer aka. my mom lol) took.

Top: Urban planet
Jacket: Winners
Belt: Costa Blanca
Jeans: Forever21
Sandals: Steve Madden (seen here and here)
Purse: Nine West
Earrings: Swarovski 

The day before it was rainy and a bit cool so when I woke up Friday and saw that it was rainy I assumed it would be cold too so that is why I wore the jacket but the sun started coming out so off came the jacket and on went the tank top. I really do like this look though and I think I'll be sporting it pre-fall.
Have a fabulous Sunday :)

I'll spend the rest of my life hiding my heart away

Hello lovelies,

It's Friday yay! I have a packed weekend planned so I am looking forward to it specially because I have been in a bit of a funk for a couple of days, guess because I have alot on my mind. Hope I'll get out of it soon though because I am not really a fan of this feeling.

I thought I would share with you, an outfit that I wore to work yesterday. This is the type of outfit I usually wear on days that are a bit cooler in the summer, which was the case yesterday. Although I am not a fan of wearing tights/leggings as pants (if you follow me on twitter you would have seen my tweet expressing my feelings about this yesterday lol) I think it is alright to wear them as long as they are paired with a longer top/tunic ie. cover up the bum!

The top I wore is actually meant to be a blouse but it was too big for me and I knew it would be even when I was buying it about two years ago. Ever since then I couldn't really find a way to wear it that I loved so back to the closet it went until about a month ago when i realized it would work with leggings.
I also put my hair in a french braid since I knew it was going to be a windy/rainy day!

Tank: Garage
Top: Winners
Leggings: Forever21
Flats: Aldo
Earrings: Swarovski 

Have a Gorgeous Saturday!

Dance the night away...

Hello lovelies,

The past few days I have been busy with work and cleaning out the junk in my room and getting it ready for a makeover! If you are interested let me know and I'll do a before and after :)
I haven't really been able to take outfit photos since I have pretty much been in jeans and sweats and t-shirts...not very exciting and hardly photo worthy.
I put together this outfit as one I would wear for a night of drinks and dancing! I love dancing just so you know ;)

3. SteveMadden SHIMMA Black Satin 
5. Belle Noel Butterfly Ring 

I would tuck that top into the skirt so it would look like a top with a sweetheart neckline. And I picked that skirt because how fun would it be to dance and twirl in a flirty little skirt all night ;)

What do you think of this look? What do you like to wear when you go out for dancing? 
Have a gorgeous Thursday :)

It all ends...

Until the end. 

Watched Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 tonight. Yes, I cried...sad that it's over.

Cute as a button!

Hello lovelies,

I hope you are all doing well. Yesterday was so fun, I went to a pool party and then went to a graduation party and I had such a good time. I didn't manage to get photos of my party outfit which I LOVED! because I was running late and it was very dark out.

Here is an outfit I put together and this was inspired by the cute flats you see! Adorable! non?

5. Marc by Marc Jacobs Marc Jelly Bracelet Set

I saw these flats in the lovely Stefanie's post here and fell in love so I had a look on Le Bunny Bleu's website and fell in love with all their shoes and the one above specially :)

What do you think of this outfit? 
Have a beautiful Sunday :)

Blue Da Ba Dee

Hello lovelies,

How is everyone's weekend so far? Friday was low key for me I stayed home, watched tv shows, read, and added little bubbles to my header....you like?

This is the outfit I wore to pick up the mama from the airport on Thursday. I love this dress for two reasons, one it's just so pretty and girly and is made of silky material that is so light and comfortable for the summer time. Two I bought it at the Forever21 store at Times Square when I was in New York last summer. I love buying clothes when I am travelling as every time I wear that item, it takes me back to all the fun I had on that specific trip :)

Dress: Forever21
Belt: H&M
Sandals: Zara
Purse: Danier Leather

And here is a silly photo of me because that is just so me :)

well I'm going to be quiet the social butterfly today so talk to you all later ;)

Pretty in Coral

Hello lovelies,

How are you all doing? It's Friday! yay! My mom just got back from visiting her family yesterday so you can expect more outfit posts ;)

It has been so so so hot here in Toronto for the past few days and yesterday it was in the 40s! But I am not complaining I'm soaking it all up because come September this will be all gone until next June.

Here is an outfit I put together for hot summer days and it is just casual chic, perfect for a summer date :)

                           1. I love the color coral so this Ruffled Cap Sleeve Dress is the perfect choice for me!
  2. Tory Burch Emmy Thong Flat Sandals  
4. Alkemie Jewelry Arrowhead Earrings 
                        5. Marc by Marc Jacobs Polarized Oversized sunglasses 

Does it count as colour blocking if it is your dress and your purse? Either way I love the idea of these two colours together. 
What do you lovlies think of this outfit? 

ps. I am finally able to do this kind of post thanks to the help of the lovely Monika from The Doctor's Closet. You should definitely check out her amazing blog :) 

Have a wonderful weekend :)

Motel Rocks will Rock you!

Hello lovelies,

How was everyone's Tuesday? Mine was alright, couldn't complain really. My day actually started with a rather exciting email from Motel Rocks. If you have not heard of them before, they are a clothing company with very cute clothes at very decent prices. 
A few days ago on twitter, they asked if anyone was interested in their look book, so I sent them my email address in order to receive one. The email this morning contained just that so I thought I would share my favourites from their new collections that they are going to be releasing. 
There are three collections: Colour Kaleidoscope, Femme Fatale and Do it like the Boys. They are also going to be adding new pieces to their older collections. Cute names!

There are more pieces in the collections but here are my favourites: 

This dress is perfect for a night out. I would however pair it up with a pair of black tights (since that is a bit too short for my taste) and it would be perfect for the Fall weather.

I absolutely love this look. This is actually what you would find me in most of Fall, big chunky knits and tights.

This look reminds me of the 70's and my mom's photos of when she was my age. I love it just for that reason and the fact that it's such a comfortable but still chic look doesn't hurt either. 

This dress is absolutely lovely and would be perfect for a date night. The lace does really add a certain je ne sais quoi to the dress ;) 

This is yet another adorable look that I would most definitely be sporting. I love loose dresses that I can wear with tights, as I spend many hours at uni, I like to be comfortable as well as look cute :)

Another going out dress, which would look perfect with a pair of killer black heels. 

Let's just take a moment and admire the fierceness of this photo...ok now please look at how amazing that skirt is.  ps. I have tights of that exact same colour and it is gorgeous in fall/winter.

Cute dress which again I would pair up with black tights or maybe grey ones. I like dresses that poof out a bit at the waist. 

I just really love all the colours in this photo. Even the model seems to be having fun in them!
What do you think of these looks? let me know some of your favourites :) 

For my lovlies from the London area, you ladies can attend Motel Rocks first ever sample sale taking place on the 29th and the 30th!
they emailed me about it but since I'm just a tad far to attend I thought I would at least let you ladies know about it, because sharing is caring ;)
Here is the link for all the details http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=165550773518666

I also wanted to share with you my hair style for a very hot and humid day!

Have a gorgeous Wednesday!

NOTD, Jewelry & New Hair!

Hello lovelies,

Today I had such a rough start. It was cloudy and rainy and just bleh but then the sun came out, I consumed a large coffee and so all is good again!
Saturday, after debating for months, I finally decided to go for a hair change. And am I glad I went for it! I love it, it's such a nice change specially for the summer :)

and here it is! I got blonde highlights so overall my hair is much lighter than before. 
excuse the tired face...just got back from work!
there was a time when I hated how my hair got, how do I say it nicely, overly volumed?  but recently I've just been embracing it and people have actually recently been complementing me on it!

Here is my nail of the moment. It's nothing special this time, I was just craving a simple bright color.

I'm wearing Sweet Tart by Revlon. I absolutely love this nail polish. 

I also though I would share the jewelry I had on today.
The ring you see in the photos above is something I have been looking for, for a long time and found it at Forever21. It is a two finger ring and I love it. My co-worker asked me if that was a brass knuckle lol boys! 

This was waiting for me when I got home today :)
can't believe how fast Shopbop's delivery was. I ordered this Friday!

On my wrist I have:
 Madewell cuff bracelet 
Evil eye bracelet from Iran
Silver bracelet by Banana Republic

What do you lovelies think of the new hair? and did you make any changes to you hair style or color this summer?
And just a quick thank you to Loose Button for featuring my last post on their Facebook page! 

Have a fabulous Tuesday :)

Things that make happy

Hello lovelies,

How is every one's Friday? the weekend is here so that alone makes me happy! Today I just wanted to share a couple of things that I am enjoying or did enjoy this week.
The first thing was receiving my Luxe Box in the mail. I love getting things in the mail specially if they have girly surprises for me inside :)

I am very happy with my Luxe Box this month and here are the items that were in the box. 

The first item and the one that I am excited the most about is the full size Essie nail polish in the colour Material Girl.
The next item is the Hair Oil Treatment by Procliam. I have very dry curly hair so I am happy to try this out. 
Next is the Stella in Two Peony Fragrance by Stella McCartney. This perfume is very light and floral and is perfect for the spring/summer time. I'll be throwing this in my purse for refreshing during the day.

The last but definitely not the least item is a full sized eye liner from Trucco. When I read the description card that names all the products it said that I had received a lip liner. When I opened the liner itself however it was a green colour so I'm going to assume that it was just a mistake haha, no matter I never use lip liners so this is great. I have green eyes so I love using green eyeliners. 

I had actually nerver heard of Proclaim and Trucco so these will be interesting to try. I will let you know how they are once I have tried them :) 

As I love DIY and feel good about recycling materials rather than throwing them out, this is what I did with the box and the materials (green tissue paper and ribbon) that came with it! 

And a couple of other things that put a smile on my face are the fresh flowers I picked from our backyard! and the Caribbean Escape candle from Bath and Body Works :)

Hope you all have a beautiful weekend :)

Make 'em go Oh, oh, oh

Hello lovelies,

I am sure you all know that the end of Harry Potter is near which I am excited and sad for at the same time. I am a huge Harry Potter fan and think that J.K. Rowling is a genius. Every time I read those books I am transported into another world and feel like I am part the exciting adventures our favourite trio are going through.
My favourite characters are Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. He is the sometimes slow but most loyal friend someone could ask for and she is the brave and very smart heroine of the movie. These are all qualities that I try to have well minus being slow!
Well my post today is about the beautiful Emma Watson whom we watched grow from a bushy haired girl to the fashionable young lady she is today. I have been in awe of her wardrobe choices for the latest premiers and such. Here are my favourites that I am totally in love with!

Elie Saab

Rafael Lopez

Bottega Veneta

Oscar de la Renta

Gorgeous non?
I want them all, not so sure about the Bottega Veneta one but she is brave enough to try different designs because fashion in my opinion is not always about doing it right! 

Have a fabulous day:)

NOTD: You Are My Sunshine

Hello lovelies,

How is everyone doing? well I hope! Today I just thought I would share my latest nail polish look. I had been looking for a yellow nail polish for a very long time. I wanted the neon yellow but I looked and looked and couldn't find one anywhere. Yesterday I was at Walmart and saw Mellow Yellow by Sally Hansen there and even though it is not neon yellow I thought I would give it a try and at $2.77 you really can't go wrong. I put it on last night and I actually really like it as it's got a really sunny feel to it!

(on my ring finger is Rage by Orly)

And here is one of my favourite songs and thought it appropriate as I really really miss my mom.
(ps. this song makes me tear up every time I listen to it)

The Best Day by Taylor Swift

Have a great day!

Chanel how do I love thee? let me count the ways

Hello lovelies,

How is everyone's week so far? tomorrow is Friday yay! it could not come sooner. The title of this post is from one of my all time favourite poems by Elizabeth Barrett Browning, I just thought it appropriate for a post about Chanel because I am kinda sorta in love with every thing designed by this fashion house.
I just thought I would share my favourite looks from the Fall 2011 collection from the haute couture show in Paris.

Every thing looks amazing and those lace face masks add such a gorgeous touch to the looks. 
what do you think of these looks? would you wear these looks? I am definitely going to invest in a tweed jacket for the fall but it definitely won't be Chanel...I wish. 

Have a beautiful Friday :)
