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

Summer Favourites

DSCF4545

There are so many things that I have been loving this summer and I thought that I would share some of them with you. It was very difficult to narrow down my favourites but here are a few of the things that I have been loving this summer.

Sunglasses: If you read my last blog post then you know how much I love these sunglasses. I bought them from Aldo about a month ago and I wear them all the time. I love the shape of the sunglasses and their gold detailing. Another thing that I love about them is that they stay on my face, which most sunglasses don’t.

Gold Rings: I have always been a fan of gold rings. I like to wear multiple at the same time and they go with almost every outfit. I recently got these gold rings from Aldo and I love how they are all different sizes and shapes. Even though they are all different they go so well together.

Scott Helman: My favourite musician this summer has been Scott Helman. He is a nineteen year old singer-songwriter from Toronto, Canada, and I love his album Augusta! All of his songs and their lyrics are amazing and I find myself singing them all the time.

MAC Lipgloss: Lipgloss is my favourite lip product and I love the Cremesheen Glass from MAC Cosmetics. I have it in the shade Partial to Pink and it is the perfect mixture of the creamy texture of lipstick and the shine of a gloss.

Style Stalking: I talked about this book in a past blog post but I have recently started reading it again. Style Stalking is a book created by the Editor-in-Chief Christene Barbaric and Executive Creative Director Piera Gelardi of the website Refinery29. It breaks fashion down into basic chapters dealing with such things as “mixed prints”, “good vintage”, and “metallics”. It is great for inspiration and I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves fashion.

I hope that you enjoyed this post and let me know in the comments what your summer favourites are!
