Self-care During Covid-19

This is a very strange and difficult time. Between the number of deaths reported around the world, and having to stay home/isolate/shelter-in-place, it’s easy to lose sight of who you are and what you enjoy. I’m social distancing, and that means spending all my time inside. Like many of you, I planned to go out…

The Makeup Essentials I Can’t Be Without

When it comes to makeup, I like form and function: I don’t want it to feel or look like I have a lot of makeup on, but when I do wear it I want it to look good, I want my skin to show through, and I want colour too…

2020 Vision

Is it fashionable to set your intentions anymore? Probably not, but I’ll continue to do so anyway (because it works)…

What Fits in My Vintage 50s Patent Leather Top Handle Box Bag

I recently bought an amazing vintage leather top handle box bag from a shop on Etsy called zeesvintagefashion and I love it! It’s compact, it feels nice and solid in my hands, and it matches all my denim, silk and leather (which I look forward to wearing this autumn/fall) like a dream. But it’s small….

What’s New In My Wardrobe For Fall

I know it’s still summer, but, as I said in an earlier post, I’m much more of an autumn person than a summer lover. Why? Because, while I don’t completely hate warmer weather, I can’t help but feel like it’s sometimes too hot to dress in an elevated way. Also, instead of the sweltering heat, I prefer…

The Style Pieces You Should be Investing In

Yes… it’s me again… And I’m back with a play on the intro to TLC’s Creep (an iconic song) and a fun post about one of my favourite subjects: fashion! Specifically, I want to talk about multifunctional pieces that you will get your money out of, should you choose to invest your coins into them….

Opinion Piece: 6 Fashion Mistakes You’re Making Right Now

I know that fashion is not the most important thing in the world, but it is fun. And beyond that, fashion gives you a real opportunity to say something about who you are. The truth is, like it or not, your sense of style (or lack thereof) says something. Don’t come for me, internet, I’m…

5 New and Old Fashion Trends That I Would Never Wear

While I mostly focus on showcasing pieces and trends that I like and wear, I thought I’d step my foot in it and talk about trends that I absolutely hate! Groundbreaking? Perhaps not, but it’s definitely going to be fun to write! Casual disclaimer: I can assure you that no fashion trends or garments were harmed…

My Summer Wardrobe Essentials

It hit 21 degrees the other day. And the day after that, it was 21 degrees too. Is it too early to hope? Can I call it? I’m going to step out and say that (aside from the spring showers and the unseasonably windy weather) the heat is almost on! And that can only mean…

Six Places I Want To See Within Six Years: An Updated List

In November 2016 I shared a post about six places that I wanted to see within six years. At the time, I had just been through something and I thought about all the places (which were and are somewhat exotic to me) that I wanted to plant my feet on. But you know what? Most of…
