OOTD - Midis and t-Shirts

Wednesday, September 19, 2018

I m one of those people who is comfortable in jeans and a good tee, that’s pretty much what I wore all throughout high school. Back then, I wore them exclusively for comfort. Now, I love a tee because they are classic, casual look, that I can elevate. I love combining a midi skirt and a t-shirt to create and effortless look. I switched from sneaker to a pair of heels for dinner.

Top 5 Fall TV Shows

Tuesday, September 18, 2018

There are so many new TV shows coming out this Fall, here are the top 5 shows i'm looking forward to watching. My PVR is going to be so full, I might have to delete some reality shows. Can you imagine, the horror. Let's just say these better be good.

I Feel Bad- I really want to like this show because it shows diversity, the trailer fell a little flat for me but I will give the first few episodes a shot. I really hope it gets better because it might be awhile before we see another show like this. This premieres on NBC on Thursday October 4.
source
Manifest- I watched the trailer for this show and I was so disappointed it was over. This show looks so good! A plane that hits turbulence and then lands and the passengers are told they have been missing for 5 years! Madness I can't wait to see how this mystery plays out. This show premiers on NBC Monday September 24 10 pm
source
The Rookie-  I know, I know another cop drama but it has Castle in it. Okay not actually Castle but the actor who played him, Nathan Fillion. He's amazing and I can't wait to check this show out. It Premiers Tuesday October 16  on ABC.
source
Charmed- As you know from my other picks, I love a good reboot and Charmed was one of my favourite shows when I was a teen. My sister and I watched the entire series and then rewatched the reruns that's how much we loved it. So I hope this reboot lives up to the original if not better. IT premieres Sunday October 14 on the CW.

source
New Amsterdam- So I saw a poster for this show and I thought great another hospital drama. I already gave up on Grey's Anatomy and now you want me to watch another hospital drama. Then I watched the trailer and I want to watch this show so bad. It's not like ER or Grey's where it's all about the personal dramas between doctors. This show seems different and i'm intrigued. Check it out when it premieres Tuesday September 25 on NBC.

What new shows will you be checking out this Fall? What should have made my list?

OOTD - Lace Slip Dress

Monday, September 17, 2018

There is something to be said for simple outfits, that look effortless but is actually really comfortable. I’ve had this slip dress for a long time and it is so versatile –I’ve paired it with sneakers, but this look could easily be dressed up with a pair of heels. Today I styled it with a long cardigan and booties.  I think it’s appropriate for everything from girl’s night to running errands (maybe switch boots for runner, and add a denim jacket for that) It doesn’t hurt that the fabric is super easy to care for and travels well since it doesn’t wrinkle!

Accessorize your Shoes with Charms from Alterre!

Friday, September 14, 2018


Have you guys heard about Alterre? They design their shoes with comfort and versatility in mind - they are best known for their adjustable heel. The amazing women behind the brand know that the best shoes are comfortable all day, versatile, and pack light. So they combined those traits with their patented technology (and a lot of insole padding) to create shoes you can interchange into over 500 combinations. Lately they have gone even further to make shoes more versatile and stand out by creating interchangeable charms. 


I personally own a lot of shoes, but sometimes you can't take a suitcase full of shoes just so you are ready for different looks. That’s why Alterre created an innovative line of modular shoes charms for the modern woman. They come in different styles and can change how a shoe looks completely. They are made of high quality leather and the best part, these charms can be worn on all Alterre shoes as well as any shoe with a 1/4" strap.




Top Drugstore Day Creams With SPF

I need a new day cream now that summer is over. I was using a tinted moisturizer for summer that had SPF in it. I like to change things up once I run out of a product, so I'm on the hunt for a new day cream. I like to have a really easy morning routine and the least amount of steps as possible so combining SPF and moisturizer helps this. Below are my top 5 picks of all the day creams I tried in order of favourties. 
source
NO7 Early Defence Day Cream SPF 30 $24- I love this day cream the price is reasonable, it's light and absorbs quickly and it has SPF 30 which is the SPF I prefer. 
source

L'OREAL Revitalift Bright Reveal Day Cream with SPF 30- $32.99 This is my second favourite because although it has SPF I prefer, and absorbed nicely the price isn't that great you are paying more for less mLs. This is 30 mLs only vs. the No 7 is 50 mLs.



source

OLAY Luminous Whip Face Moisturizer SPF 25 $40.99 - This made it to number 3 because the SPF is only 25 and although the formula is whipped it still felt thick when you picked it up, it absorbs nicely but just not as good as the ones above.

source

Garnier SkinActive Clearly Brighter Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 $20.99 - So while this one is the most bang for your buck at 75 mLs for $20 I prefer a higher SPF as I mentioned above and that's why this made it to the fourth number. It's a really good formula that I loved, and I loved the price.
source
AVEENO Active Naturals Positively Radiant Sheer Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 $25.99- This formula felt like I was using a sunscreen vs a moisturizer. It made it on my list because I like the SPF and the price is good you get 73 mLs for $26 but it just wasn't my favourite.

What daily moisturizer do you use that I should try out?

OOTD - Basics, Re-invented

Wednesday, September 12, 2018

A simple white dress and a black pump are all you need - but since I am trying to wear everything in my closet that means taking the basics and reinventing them. All you need is a sheer lace overlay to create a completely different look. This dress is so feminine but effortless.
