Perfectly polished


 Nail polish is a great accessory to complete a look, it adds another visual element. I love experimenting with nail polish; therefore I’m always on the hunt for new colours. My all-time favourite brand is OPI. I’ve tried so many different brands and OPI seems to last the longest on the nail. The brush and consistency of OPI is exceptional. I’ve narrowed down the top must have spring nail colours. I’ve recently been obsessed with China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy; it’s so bright and fun for spring. There’s a wide range of colours in this year from lights, to brights, and darks. I’ve been noticing the trends tend to be a lot of pale pinkies, bright oranges, light blues, lilac, turquoise, and dark blues.  So try a colour you haven’t tried before, and let me know if you pick any of these up!!

Green on Green


Lately I have been obsessed with cacti, and succulents. I don’t remember when this obsession started, but I just can’t get enough of them. If you want to see some amazing cacti visit yesterday’s post where I went through the Muttart Conservatory, they have some amazing plants! When I saw this shirt it was love at first sight, I could think of 10 ways to wear this wonderful piece. Has anyone been star-struck by an amazing garment? I chose these boyfriend green jeans with this top to tie in the green, and then to add some edge of course I had to add the leather jacket. I have been loving this one from Reitman’s I got a couple months ago! Who else is just as obsessed with succulents?!

Traveling Diaries: Edmonton!

The surprise location I visited last week was Edmonton! I have been to this fantastic city so many times, and each time I love it even more. It’s known as wild rose country, and has amazing views of the sky. Growing up in BC I’m used to mountains, but going to Edmonton is entirely different with no mountains at all and open skies. I’m going to be taking you through my trip and let you know some of my favourite things to do. First we started outside of Edmonton in a little town called Westlock, we visited my grandma for mother’s day, also attending a local art exhibit and doing a bit of shopping. Next our trip took us into the big city. Edmonton has massive roads, and lots of lanes. It’s harder to get around in Edmonton unless you have a car. No trip to Edmonton would be complete without going to West Edmonton mall, the largest mall in North America and 18th largest in the world! Complete with a hotel, waterpark, skating rink and over 800 stores it’s definitely going to keep you busy. We also went to Southgate mall, which has one of my favourite stores called Oak+Fort! Whyte Avenue or Old Strathcona is a historic part in central Edmonton, which is a definite must. They have the cutest unique shops from clothing stores, to homeware, and even car dealerships. It’s a very neat place to check out. My all-time favorite thing that I did in Edmonton and my top recommendation of things to do was the Muttart Conservatory, it was seriously amazing! It’s located downtown, close to the main part of the city, with beautiful old homes in the area. Basically its four domes with four different biomes in it which are, Feature: Amour de Paris, Arid, Rainforest, and tropical. Each pyramid is filled with different plants that grow in that region. The arid biome was my favourite with cacti and succulents everywhere; it felt like we were in Arizona. The feature pyramid always changes and this time it was Amour de Paris, it was my mom’s favourite with colourful hydrangeas and Eiffel tower. I went a little loco with picture taking, so take a browse through and let me know your thoughts! Have you ever been to Edmonton, or maybe you’re from there? What are your favourite things to do in the city? Let me know in the comments!

Gold love

 Happy May long weekend! I hope everyone is enjoying their extra holiday Monday! For those of you from other countries today is a holiday in Canada. It called Victoria day, everyone tends to go camping, or spends their time close to a lake. I am so sorry I have been away for so long, but I took a little holiday. You’ll find out where I went and everything I did in tomorrows blog post, so get excited for #traveltuesday! This pictures were taken in a beautiful location; the Chilliwack lake area. My town has such beautiful mountains and lakes! Onto the outfit! I took this gold skirt and paired it with an army green tee for a casual vibe, then dressed it up with a leather jacket and cheetah heels. It’s unexpected, but I love taking the unexpected and making it look cool. It amazing what you can do dressy items/casual items! What is an unexpected piece in your wardrobe? And also, what did you do for the long weekend? Let me know below :)

leather leather

 Quick hello today! I hope everyone is super fantastic! I’m actually headed off someplace exciting today. As it is Mother’s day this weekend, my mom and I are going to visit my grandma so we can both be with our mom’s! I’ll give you a couple hints as to where we are going: 1. It’s an hour flying time/ 10 hours driving from where I live, 2. They are very proud of their AAA beef, 3. This province does have mountains, but none where we are going. Any ideas? If you know leave a comment down below. I hope everyone has an amazing mother’s day, and I hope your all planning on spoiling your mommas!
