online shopping: my first ROMWE order.


As a fashion fanatic on a budget...I have heard about an awful lot of online style websites. One that continued to pop up was ROMWE. Despite hearing about it over and over again, I ever ordered anything from them. There was no particular reason. I just never got around to it! Well, a little while ago, I finally did get around to it. I saw an ad that showed ROMWE offered 60% off of your first purchase. Great, I thought. What a perfect way to try out their clothes and see what all the fuss was about.

neapolitan ice cream sundae inspired makeup look.


It just isn't summer without a cold ice cream cone. There has literally never been a time in my life when I have turned down a bowl of this delicious dessert. It is the ultimate sweet treat! Since the weather has been warm and muggy lately, there has been a fair amount of ice cream in my life. In fact, my husband and I recently picked up a tub of Neapolitan. The reason? We couldn't agree on a flavour. (I wanted chocolate and he wanted strawberry.) So, we met in the middle.

four ways to have fun on your own.

Whether you are an introvert or an extrovert...it is possible to make the most of an evening alone. Here are a few ideas that will keep you happy and entertained. All on your own.

review: urban decay moondust palette


It has been a full-blown makeup drought over here. Okay, not really. I still have more makeup that any one person technically needs...but it has been quite a while since new makeup has entered my life. One of my resolutions for the year was to use more of what I have rather than constantly focus on the new-new-new. As a reward for cutting back, my husband surprised me with the Urban Decay Moondust palette. Cue excitement. Not only was this new makeup....but a sparkly glitter palette that I had been lusting after for ages.

why trisha paytas is my style icon.


Everyone has a style icon...whether you look up to a red carpet celebrity, a friend, family member, or even an Internet sensation. Over the years, there have been many people who have influenced my love of fashion and beauty. The short list includes designers like Victoria Beckham and Betsey Johnson - and women like Audrey Hepburn and Khloe Kardashian. Though each one is very different from the other, they represent something that resonates within me. For instance, Victoria and Audrey personify elegant sophistication while Betsey and Khloe are all about having fun. I like to think that my style has a bit of both, combining both the classic and the playful.

getting inspired by: yoins


Honestly? My wardrobe lately has been feeling a little stale. Most of the items hanging in my closet have been worn over and over again. This is both a good and bad thing. It is great because it means there are a ton of favourites for me to choose from....but not so great because it has left me feeling uninspired. There is nothing like a couple of well-chosen pieces to completely re-vamp your wardrobe.
