With Coachella just around the corner, and the recent announcement of many other summer lineups, I was inspired to put together a little festival inspired lookbook for y’all. In my opinion, festival fashion is the next best thing to fall fashion, and I think many of you would agree. It requires minimal makeup, minimal clothing, and an all around “I woke up like dis” look. So without further a due here are some looks I have created for the upcoming festival season, enjoy!

Hello internet people!
I have to apologize for my lack of posts over the past month. I’d like to blame my work load or busy schedule but i’d be lying about both. The truth is that I’ve been going through a serious case of the february blues and and simply could not conjure enough energy to do much more than eat and sleep. All my canadians out there, i’m sure you can relate.
But it has been warming up slightly and I have the week off school, so I feel like I can finally inspire myself catch up in the blogsphere. So today I bring you some of my favourites during the month of February!
February was the kind of cold that made you instantly start cursing and make you consider homicide the moment you stepped out the front door. Beanies came in handy. I’ve acquired quite the collection of beanies over the course of this winter season and above are just a few of my favourites. Going from left to right, these were purchased at NewLook, Zumiez, Urban Outfitters, and Aritzia (last one gifted from my gal pal Erica). So ya beanies, practical and cute how bout that.
Mindy Kaling is one funny lady. Technically I read this one back in September but re-read it this month because I needed a pick-me-up from my February slump. This book will have your gut hurting from laughing so hard. I highly suggest you refrain from reading this book in public because you will get strange looks from LOL’ing to yourself. Its an easy read that you will finish in 3 days tops, and will have you questioning why you didn’t read it sooner, seriously BUY IT NOW.
I’m accustomed to using Sephora’s brow pencil for filling my brows in, but felt like a change and wanted to switch things up by using a powder. I wasn’t really sure what I was looking for, so I asked one of the Sephora girls what she recommended and she pointed me to this. She tried it out on me at the beauty counter, and I loved the way it looked. The two tones allow you to blend to get the perfect match, and can help you achieve a sort of ombre effect on your brows. I find the powder looks much more natural than the pencil and surprisingly stays on longer too. This was $30.00 and I use it with an angled eyeliner brush.
4. NOAH GUNDERSON
I stumbled across this one night on youtube during a music rampage and have been OBSESSED. His voice is just beautiful and he writes all his own music which is really impressive considering his young age and the depth of his lyrics. So ya take a listen, I hope you enjoy it as much as I have!
That wraps up my favourites for this month! I hope it warms up wherever you are, and you have things to look forward to, and you have a fantastic weekend!
Ps. I have a massive order of clothes coming in within the next week so expect a spring lookbook soon!
A little musical boost for this snowy wednesday morning! Have a great day everyone 🙂
Ahhhhhh. The feeling of a fresh start. I’m so in love with my new desk space that I voluntarily started my homework just as an excuse to use it. I’m so happy with the result, as you could imagine it feels good having a pretty work space having to put up with such an eye sore for so long. A nice work area may even motivate me to keep it clean (ha.)Almost everything photographed was purchased from Ikea. I managed to re-do the entire space for under $300 which is a great deal, considering everything that was bought and the impact is has made on my bedroom. The shelves were on for half off ($12 each) and I found the transparent chrome plated chair in the last chance section for $58 marked down from $89. Bargain Queen.I cannot stress how much more put together I feel after having a newly organized space. Little improvements here and there make you feel accomplished and do so much in making your home or room feel fresh and new! If you guys have any questions on any of the items I bought, let me know and i’ll give you specific product names, links, and all that good stuff. Let me know what you think!
I’m heading to Ikea today with my dad to get all the things needed to update the work area in my room, I’m super excited. I took to Pinterest for some inspiration and found this photo which i absolutely love. It’s girly, clean, and fresh, exactly the look that i’m going for. I’m hoping I can find most of these things today and (fingers crossed!) in a budget friendly fashion.
I will definitely be doing a blogpost on the finished product!
I can’t believe January is coming to an end already. I’m glad to be honest, because that means that i’m that much closer to finishing school and saying GOOD-BYE to winter. Can I get a hallelujah? HALLELUJAH.
Considering this is my first favourites post, I wanted to create an ongoing structure or theme for future months to come. For each favourites post I will be sharing my favourite music, book, clothing item, and beauty product that i enjoyed during each particular month. So, without further a due, these are my favourites for the month of January!
Music Lorde-Pure Heroine. I bought this album with some iTunes money I received for Christmas, and I have been absolutely obsessed. It’s such honestly written music, something I find really difficult to find these days. My favourite songs on the album have to be Bravado, World Alone, Buzzcut Season, 400 Lux, Glory and Gore……. They’re really all fantastic. Lorde, you are queen.
Book Alexa Chung- It. I have been meaning to buy this book for months, and finally got my hands on it a few weeks ago. If you are really into fashion and lifestyle related things, BUY THIS. It was such a fast and lovely read, It only took me about 40 minutes to go from cover to cover. Alexa Chung has flawless taste, and she really gives insight on how to develop and find your style through the inspiration found in everyday things. And lesbehonest, she’s totally hot.
Clothing Item Plaid, Tartan, Checks, etc. That really says it all. It’s such a go to item for me that adds a cool edge to any outfit. So effortless and simple.
Beauty Product Oxblood Nailpolish. My nails seem to have been permanently painted a form of this hue for months now. It’s just the perfect colour for autumn and winter and really works with the paleness of winter hands. Above i’m wearing Bordeaux by Essie my #1 fav.
What have been some of your favs this month?
