Outfit of the Day: More Fringe.

Jacket Spain  |  Pants Zara  |  Shoes Zara

This season I have been so obsessed with fringe, I can't count how many pieces I have purchased with fringe on them! I'm absolutely in love with this jacket I picked up on my recent travels to Spain. This particular jacket was bought in Madrid. Super comfy and super chic, of course! It can be worn dressed up or dressed down. I paired this fabulous jacket with a casual tank, and threw on my favourite printed, pair of pants. To add some colour in the mix, are these gorgeous open-toe sandals. I know what you're's too cold for these open-toe beauties. I did shoot this outfit about a month ago when the snow wasn't on the ground as yet. Now i'll have to wait till summer to bust these shoes out again. 

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend!

Outfit of the Day: Red Pumps & Leopard Print.

Sweater H&M  |  Shoes Aldo

Happy Tuesday everyone! I think winter is officially upon us. There is no turning back at this point. As much as I would love to wear this outfit just as it is, without having to cover the whole thing up with the winter jacket, I unfortunately can't! Add a pop of colour to your wardrobe by throwing on a pair of sexy red (or any other colour) heels, and maybe even do a red lip. Why not? Just because it's winter, doesn't mean we can't still add some colour in our lives. 

Take this outfit from casual to dressy by pairing the sweater with a knee length skirt or just throw on a blazer over the sweater. I may even do some variations of the outfit on the blog soon.

A Visit To Saje Natural Wellness.

There is nothing I love more than natural products with minimal or no harsh chemicals in them. I'm not saying that I only use 100% natural products, but I would like to introduce more of them into my life. When I came across the Saje Natural Wellness store, which recently opened up at Square One Shopping Centre, I was absolutely in awe by it! Not only was it a gorgeous looking store, but it smelled fantastic! It is the first store to open up in Ontario, and there are many more locations opening up. I got very excited about how lovely the store was, and thought to myself  'this has to go on the blog!' 

The store is full of amazing products for all different types of health issues, from simples headaches to bigger things, like sleep issues. 

The experience visiting the store was so wonderful as the staff really know their product knowledge and are very passionate about the story of Saje:

"Our product line has expanded to include hundreds of different natural wellness products, accessories, and healthy gift ideas. We have a strong commitment to honesty, integrity, and impeccable quality, and for years now we have strictly maintained that all Saje products contain only 100% natural ingredients, for your best health!"

A full wood exterior and interior finish. Gives it that very natural, rustic, look to the store.

Essential oils for very type of health issue. There are tons of different smells to suit any kind of person. 

The 'Aroma Bar,' where you can open up any of these bottles to sniff the scents. Once you choose the right scent for you, you can pick it out on the shelf.

After sniffing these bottles for 20 minutes, I think I finally figured out what was for me!

These are Nebulizers. They clean the environment in any room, letting in fresh scents of the essential oils you choose. This can calm a room, add good energies to a room, or even make you sleepy, depending on the type of oil you use.

These are 100% natural soy wax candles, that also have essential oils in them.

They have many different products that have the essential oils in them. These are roll-on scents. You can roll a little on your wrists to help calm or heal you throughout the day. 

"Wherever your travels take you, take me with you" Travel Kit.

The have a ton of natural skin care products. Everything from your face, hands, neck, and body.

They even have this amazing DIY back massager! I couldn't get enough of this!

Stuck on Christmas gifts?? Saje has got you covered! They have so many wonderful stocking stuffers that are on sale and perfect for anyone! Who wouldn't want some of this natural goodness? 

Check out their Holiday Gift Guide for some amazing gifts!

Special thanks to Michelle Gordon & the entire team at Saje for accommodating this shoot.

What's In My Beauty Bag?


We all have our own "beauty secrets" that we love and do, almost on a daily, to keep our skin looking fab and flawless. Besides doing the regular, drink 8 glasses of water, get 8 hours of sleep, eat healthy, and exercise daily, we do need some actual beauty products to help us get through life. Especially when it is almost near to impossible to get 8 hours of sleep a day!

So I have picked out my top 5 beauty products that I use on a daily.

1. The EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm is one of my favourites for lips! For years I have been looking for the perfect lip balm, and looks like I have finally found it. If you're a lipstick kinda gal, put this under your lipstick to protect your lips from the harshness of the lipsticks. Trust me on this one, you're lips will never feel smoother!

2. This La Roche-Posay Eye Cream was just recently introduced into my life by one of my gorgeous friend's, and I don't know how I lived without it before. It's a French product, and slightly on the expensive side, but I find it to be totally worth it. At some point we are all going to age, so I'm not looking to be young forever, however if I can save a few years using some amazing products, why not?

3. The Burt's Bees Cuticle Cream is another great product for keeping your nails looking healthy. I am a huge 'paint-your-nails' kind of girl, and I need my nails looking great everyday! This product keeps all the dry skin and cuticles away. 

4. The Aveeno Daily Moisturizer is something that I have been using on my face for years. When you are in your teens and early 20's you tend to try new products and see what works best for your skin. But for years now I have found that this particular moisturizer is perfect for my skin. This one is perfect for someone with combination skin as it has the right amount of moisture in it, which doesn't leave your face feeling too oily.

5. The Osis Dust It Powder is absolutely, without a doubt, one of the coolest hair products out there! I love volume in my hair, and I hate sticky hairsprays that leave a toxic smell in my scalp. I just dust on a little bit of this powder in my roots and rub my fingers in, massaging the scalp, and instantly I have volume in my hair! This is a great product for anyone who loves a bit of volume. The best part is, that it doesn't die out in a few hours, like hairspray does. This product will keep the volume in, all day!

Outfit of the Day: Woollen Scarves + Thigh Highs.

Boots Marciano  |  Sweater H&M  |  Scarf Portugal  |  Bracelet The Bay

Happy Weekend friends! This look is for the bold. It probably isn't a good idea to wear this one to the office. It's more for those fashion events and places you want to make a statement. Of course, to make this look a bit more wearable and versatile, pair it with some leather tights, or ever a blue jean. On a warmer day, you can also get rid of the woollen scarf and throw on a chunky necklace.
