Boxing Day Shopping

Aritzia sale, Rag & Bone skinny destroyed, basic outfit, French style, leopard print heels, Calgary fashion, Calgary fashion blog,

Oh Boxing Day, Canada's Black Friday. I'm the biggest sucker for sales, and needless to say, I spent a ton in the past two days. I purchases these Rag & Bone jeans for $100 off during a pre-boxing day sale, and I might have a little (very expensive) something else to show off in two weeks.

Hint of Pink

Zara Jacket, Trf, blush jacket, pink jacket, winter fashion, nine west nero booties, style, fashion blog, calgary fashion

I love blush colours for the winter. This jacket is the perfect shade of not quite white, but not a true blush pink either. Just somewhere in between and I think it's beautiful. Especially against the snow. It was a rare find in the Zara TRF section, a section which is usually cheaper in both price and quality. Every now and then you find a gem, like this wool coat though.

Baby It's Cold Outside

blanket coat, back to school fashion, winter fashion, school outfit, over the knee boots, knee high boots, res denim, calvin klein

It's been a chilly week, and I've neglected taking photos due to it. It's not even nearly as cold as it will be in a few months, yet here I am, wussing out already. Throwing on this super warm Anthropologie jacket and a pair of knee high boots certainly helped, as did the pretty hoarfrost on the trees.

A Little Bit of Winter

We're having a really mild winter at the moment, and I'm taking advantage of it. It was a whopping 10 degrees (Celsius) out, so I brought out a fall jacket.

So I finally watched the Chanel film, "Reincarnation," featuring Cara Delevingne and Pharrell Williams. I mean, they sing! Who wouldn't want to watch?

Orange is the New Black

Finders Keepers, Aritzia, black blazer, lob cut, orange dress, drop hem, australian brand, calgary fashion, fall fashion

I'm missing bare legs – I hate knowing that I need to pair my skirts and dresses with tights now that's it's December. They're just so constraining. Layering is key to winter in the mountains, and for warmer days, I love pairing a blazer and booties (and bare legs for when I'm brave). Any tricks for staying warm in the bitter cold?

Indian Summer

It's the first week of fall, but it doesn't feel like it yet. I've been enjoying our Indian summer in lots of sheer tops and lace, since I still can. The litas were dragged out for extra height, and because I've been looking at too many photos from Style Nanda's instagram. Despite my love for such light and airy fabrics, I'm looking forward to the cooler weather and being able to wear cozy knits and jackets. I'm hoping for a fall warm enough wear I can still go barelegged, but cool enough to wear a jacket. Thank god my legs don't get as cold as my upper half.

OST Vitamin C20 Serum Review

OST Vitamin C20 Serum, Review, korean beauty, korean skincare, skincare

UPDATE: I have since stopped using this (I ran out and never bought more), and have noticed that my skin quality has suffered. My skin is less glowy (but more oily, go figure) and I think I've broken out slightly more since I've run out. Nothing else has changed in my routine. This just goes to show the effects of a skincare product aren't always apparent (to us) while using them.

The OST Vitamin C20 serum is a highly concentrated vitamin C serum. It contains 20% vitamin C, which is definitely one of the highest I’ve come across.

Vitamin C is well known for it’s brightening properties, as well as providing essential nourishment to the skin, and helping to lighten hyperpigmentation. The OST serum promises to do all of this, as well as provide moisture and help get rid of pesky blackheads.

Happy Labour Day!

It was a long weekend and you know what that means?! Sleep! Just kidding. It means hanging out with my girl friends in a relaxed, easy-going outfit perfect for walking by the river.

Pure Heals Propolis 80 Cream Review

The Pure Heals Propolis 80 Cream is the match to their 90 Ampoule.

The cream contains 80 per cent propolis extract, an ingredient with amazing anti-inflammatory properties, as well as being antibacterial and anti-microbial. This cream is also meant to give you "honey skin," ie. a new term in Korea for dewy skin, as your skin will shine like honey.

Chiffon Trench

It's been pretty rainy here, and while I love a trench for rainy weather, it's not always suitable. It's been hot and humid, so to get the look and beat the weather, I chose a chiffon trench from the H&M Conscious Collection to wear today.

Into the Deep

As I'm still doing my little mia/I have no time to take photos as all I do is sleep, I thought I'd share with you an old editorial I fell in love with.

Pure Heals Propolis 90 Serum is one of those Korean skincare products you don't really hear about. Which is unfortunate because this is AMAZING.

My Favourite Acne Busters – The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

It's that time of the month again... that period where I break out horrendously for a week and don't want to show my face in public. Needless to say, I'm pretty well versed in the world of spot treatment and preventing acne, and have tried a number of products throughout the years.

Here's some of my favourites I've tried and have come back to, as well as the ones that didn't work for me in the past. I've also included products that were meant to fight and prevent new pimples... but didn't quite work out in that sense.

Finally a sunny day to wear this Urban Outfitters romper. I bought this when rompers first started appearing in stores a few years ago. Let me tell you, it was quite the hunt to find the perfect first timer playsuit!

Radiant Orchid Lips? Benefit Lollitint Too Expensive? Try the Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint in Lavender

I've talked about it again and again, but Pantone's colour of the year, radiant orchid, just happens to be my vice. I've been wanting Benefit's Lollitint since it first launched, for that perfect slightly purple makeup look. I'm a fan of natural makeup, so a lip and cheek tint was the perfect solution to get my orchid kick without going overboard.

A Chance of Rain

Res Denim, BCBGeneration, Pashli, Danier, Guess, trenchcoat, chicwish, rainy weather, fashion, person style

It's been pretty warm, but cloudy and smoggy with a relatively high chance of rain here. While it hasn't rained on me yet, I've been living by the boy scout motto - always be prepared. And what better way to be prepared for rain than a trench coat?

The Lace Skirt

I love my lace, and this skirt is no exception. It's an oldie but a goodie from H&M, and with the summer heat setting in, being worn far more often than before.

Etude House Wonder Pore Freshener Review

The Etude House Wonder Pore Freshener is a simple toner meant to work miracles. Okay, not really, but it does claim to do plenty of good for your skin.

Whoo! I'm almost done my TESOL course! It's a nine hour class, so I always try to dress super comfortable for it. No one wants to sit in super tight shorts for nine hours – believe me, it's not comfortable!
