August Favourites

I am a little late but better late than never right! While the rest of the world is enjoying a smooth transition into September, It has been colder than usual here in Edmonton so my August Favourites are more geared towards fall and adjusting to the colder temperatures!

Hope you enjoy! xo

Matt & Nat Clarke in Cocoa (here here) The moment I saw this bag online I knew I had to have it, thanks to Miss Boss I was able to get the colour I wanted and it is perfection. The rich chocolate brown enhances any outfit and this will be a favourite for this fall season for sure!

Jackson Rowe Olive in Hunter (here & here): It is no secret I am love this olive green colour for fall and this scarf is so comfortable and looks amazing with every outfit casual or dressy. Jackson Rowe has become one of my favourite Canadian brands this year and you can shop them locally here at Miss Boss!

Chanel Rouge Allure in Passion: I am loving red lipstick and my absolute favourite is this Chanel lippy! It is the perfect red, goes on flawlessly and last all day! If you are looking for a classic lipstick this is your girl!

Buxom Lip Polish in Samantha: This has been my favourite lip gloss for over a year now, I fell off the gloss train for a bit as I was loving the liquid lipsticks but this month I got back on the train and this gloss is the perfect nude with just a hint of pink! Perfect for any time of day!

Kat Von D Shade & Light Contour Palette: I also had this palette as a favourite in June but it is worth a repeat! I use this palette every day whether I am looking to contour or just for some structure! Out of all the kits I have used this is by far the most creamiest, pigmented palette and is perfect for contour newbies or seasoned professionals!

Eliasz & Ella Tiger Eye Necklace: This stunning tiger eye necklace is a perfect addition to any fall wardrobe. The stone itself captures lighting and different angles, shining more brown is some light and more yellow in other.. like I said stunning! This necklace will go fabulously with any fall outfit!

Toms Desert Burlap Wedge: With the cold weather approaching I have been reaching for booties and these burlap wedges are gorgeous, comfortable and help out a good cause, what more can you ask for?!!

Eliasz & Ella Wooden Jasper Stone Bracelet: This beauty is my current go to, with a mixture of browns, yellows, greys and blacks it is the perfect combination for any fall outfit and also for any casual or dressy style!

Don’t forget to check by on Friday for my fashion feature! Have a great hump day!

Floppy Boots

One of the problems I have always faced with my boots are to make them last as long as possible. They aren’t cheap and they go through Canadian Winter hell. Part of my problem is the creasing the leather gets when the boots flop to one side or another. Not anymore!! I cannot take credit for this idea as it was a pinterest find but I still wanted to share! For $4.99 per noodle I was able to make 4 boot stands, or two pairs of boots stands and ta da! Problem solved in two easy steps!

Measure your boot up against the noodle, remember you don’t want it to show on top so make sure you leave an inch or two below the top of the boot and cut!
