April Favourites

It is unbelievable how quickly this month has gone by! I can’t believe that in the beginning of April I was still in Tokyo and since being back I have finished up my first year of university. Before April comes to an end I thought I would share some things I have been loving this month!

Skincare: This definitely has to be the first on my list. Just before I left for Japan I started binge watching videos on Chriselle Lim’s YouTube channel. Chriselle has always been one of my favourite fashion bloggers and her skincare videos got me super excited about my own skincare routine. Because of the humidity in Tokyo I found that my skin remained dewy and moisturized with little effort the entire time I was there. Since coming back to Canada it has returned to its naturally dry state and so I have made an effort to invest more time into my skincare routine. A product that I highly recommend that you invest in is rose water. I use it as a cleanser and it is incredible for removing dirt and oil from your skin. Not only does it also have anti-inflammatory properties but you can add it to your tea as well!

Coloured Lens Sunglasses: I bought this pair of blue lens sunglasses for my trip and they kickstarted my obsession for coloured lenses. They are such a fun way to add colour to any outfit and I find them to be a nice change from my regular black lenses. Although I haven’t bought any more sunglasses since this pair I have had my eye on a few that I think I might just have to get!

Bralettes: I have always had a thing for bralettes and all things lace. This black one has been a particular favourite of mine. It looks gorgeous styled underneath of a sheer top and is incredibly comfortable to wear. Bralettes are absolutely a top pick for spring!

Tea: Last on my list is tea. I have always been one of those people that is constantly switching between being a tea person and a coffee person. At the moment I prefer tea and Japan played a large role in creating this preference. I am fascinated by the way that teas can have so many properties such as being energizing, calming, or healing. Green tea remains my tea of choice because of the antioxidants and delicious taste!

I hope you liked this post and let me know in the comments what your April favourites are! xx

Valentine’s Day

Happy Almost Valentine’s Day! I hope that your day tomorrow is incredible and that you get to spend it with the people you love! My plans for tomorrow consist of spending time with friends and family and having dinner with my boyfriend at one of our favourite restaurants. An aspect that I love about Valentine’s Day fashion is the delicate details like jewelry and lace. The two will definitely be a part of my look tomorrow! Floral scents are a must for me on Valentine’s Day, as they are every other day of the year. Daisy by Marc Jacobs has always been a favourite perfume of mine and KODO Calming Mist is a beautiful combination of flowers and mint. The finishing touch to my Valentine’s Day look will be a pink or red lip to celebrate the theme of the day. Let me know in the comments how you will be spending your Valentine’s Day!

 

KODO Rose Noir

Hello everyone! I hope that your first week of 2017 has been incredible! A little while ago I wrote a review on the KODO Calm Skin Soother which you can read here. Since then I have collected another KODO product! That product is Rose Noir, which is a perfume oil with the scent of black pepper and rose. We carry this scent in the clothing boutique I work at and I can honestly say that I have never smelled a scent like it. After months of obsessively smelling the Rose Noir sample at work I finally got one for myself.

I’m a huge fan of floral perfumes and I love how Rose Noir has the additional deep scent of pepper. All KODO products are locally made on Vancouver Island by a lovely woman named Reyna Goshinmon who I recently had the pleasure of meeting! Her products are 100% organic and there is not one I have tried that I haven’t instantly fallen in love with. Take a look at the KODO website by clicking here and I hope you have a beautiful Monday!
