Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette

This palette I have worn every day since receiving it and to say I love it would be an understatement! The 3 shades of blush are beautiful, pigmented and go on like butter and the highlighters…. amaze balls!! This palette is out of stock online however it will be available in Sephora stores June 16th!

Eliasz & Ella Gold City Studs

I think I wore these every day last month. They are a beautiful staple for everyday looks and well as can be dressed up very easily.

Free People Hacci Top

I have several different colours in this top and wear them over dresses, with distressed denim. They are a great multi use top especially in the spring!

Converse Chuck Taylors

These are my go to casual shoes, they look super cute with shorts and a tee, maxi dress or distressed jeans and top! I also love that the white goes with everything and is a great summer colour!

 

Kate Spade 2017 Agenda

I love these agendas, I purchased the striped 2016 Agenda last year and couldn’t resist this Floral Agenda for the busy coming year!

Eliasz & Ella Rejuvenate Stone Bracelet

This has been another one of my favourites this month in combination with the Goes With Everything Bracelet. The colour combination of clear and white literally goes with everything, the perfect neutral summer bracelets!

Jackson Rowe Allie Scarf in Seafoam

I love scarfs year round and was looking for a light scarf with soft colours to take me through the summer and of course found it at Miss Boss here in Edmonton! I am a huge fan of Jackson Rowe and this scarf will be another staple in my wardrobe for years to come!

Canadian Gift Guide

For my last gift guide of the season I wanted to make sure all the wonderful Canadian companies out there were not forgotten. With the economy the way it is, it is even more important that we support local business and Canadian companies. That is why I partnered with Miss Boss to bring you some fabulous Canadian brands you can shop for right here in Edmonton!

Hope you enjoy! xo

 

One Fated Knight

Found in Vancouver, this beautiful leather line receives inspiration from the medieval era. With beautiful patterns and unique designs Jennifer Yau binds functionality with style for classic pieces that are made from recycled leather. I personally am in love with this line and both the King & Bishop handbags are on my Christmas list!

Matt & Nat

Matt & Nat is one of my favourite lines, not only because it is Canadian but because it is a vegan line made from recycled material. Montreal based, Matt & Nat create on the premise of functionality and style, both of which they exceed all expectation in! I love the variety of their line and the stunning colours, you are sure to find a bag that fits your personality and your wardrobe with this fab collection!

I am obsessed with their scarf line and have continued to fall in love with their collection! Julia creates pieces inspired by her grandparents love story and she seems to hit a home run on every piece!

Coal & Canary

I recently purchased my first Coal & Canary candle and I seriously cannot get enough! This company was created by two best friends who saw a gap in the market for quality, hand made candles. Each batch is hand poured and made only from the highest quality vegetable and soy blends. I purchased the All I Want Fir Xmas and it is by far the best scent in my house! Oh and another reason I love this candle, if you listen quietly you can hear a crackle from the wooden wick!

Blanket Scarf & Poncho Video Tutorial

Happy Friday!

I really wanted to share with you guys different ways to style a poncho and blanket scarf and after attempting it through photos I just decided to try a video so this is a very different post for me and the first time I have ever done a video, so be nice haha! I know the lighting is a bit dark and clarity not so great but Im actually surprised how good it turned out! It was a steep learning curve but I did really enjoy it! I give a lot of credit to those youtubers as this was not an easy task so let me know what you guys think and if you want to see more video tutorials like this, I will do more digging and amp up my quality!

I have shown both my poncho and blanket scarf in this tutorial and several ways to wear each piece. Both pieces are from Jackson Rowe, the Ryder poncho here and the Scout blanket scarf in brick here! You can also purchase this brand here in Edmonton at Miss Boss and in Regina at Trinity Clothing!

I hope you guys enjoy and look forward to your feedback! xo

Styling a Blanket Scarf

Blanket Scarves have become an essential fall/winter accessory for me and with so many ways to style just one scarf, it is a great investment piece for seasons to come!

I am a huge fan of plaid so when Miss Boss received this Jackson Rowe Scout Scarf in Brick I knew I needed to add this piece to my wardrobe and I have pretty much warn it every day since!

The versatility of a blanket scarf is endless, here I have paired it as an open scarf, folded up into a triangular scarf, as a poncho as well as a wrap! I also wanted to show the variety by pairing it with heels for a bit more sass as well as with boots for a casual look! I have linked the rest of my outfit details below!

I hope you guys enjoy and have a great weekend! xo

Olive

Trees are changing colour, leaves are falling, pumpkin spice lattes are being drank, and my favourite colour has come back into my life! It is definitely fall here in Edmonton and I am doing a happy dance! This time of year is by far one of my favourites!

It is no secret one of my go to, all time favourite colours is Olive. Im obsessed! It literally can be paired with any shade and gives it a subtle pop of colour without being overwhelming or overpowering. One of my favourite ways to wear this colour is with accessories until I found this midi skirt for $18! I decided to pair this outfit with nude accents to make sure I really let the Olive shine, and yes maybe I went overboard on the Olive but I love it!

Midi skirts and dresses are huge this fall and I am loving the appropriate length for work and also loving the fact that I can pair them with an oversized sweater and boots for a casual look!

I have linked all of my outfit details belowI hope you all have a great weekend and we’ll talk soon!!

Hope you enjoy! xo
