  • fall lipstick favourites.

    The season of Fall has always inspired an inevitable urge within me to make a change. There’s something about the leaves transitioning to carpet the ground in gold and feeling the temperature drop to a comfortable chill that beckons me to revamp my current maintenance routine. My go-to in times like this are to purchase […]

  • self tanning essentials.

    As summer ’16 comes to an unavoidable close, I can’t help but feel a persistent need to soak up the remaining freedom of these last few weeks. The seasonal jobs are wrapping up, the necessities for the school year are being collected in boxes and the liberating days to spend basking in the sunshine are […]

  • leopard print somethings.

    When I was 14 years old leopard print made a powerful¬†domination of¬†my wardrobe. As a newly established high school student, I specifically recall scavenging the clothing racks for all things animal print. I opted for the highest heels, the shortest skirts and the most alluring leopard dresses in an attempt to create an individualized identity […]

  • the bell jar.

    Typically in¬†the summer I gravitate towards lighthearted reads¬†to diagnose the inevitable literary exhaustion from the conclusion of a semester, but¬†The Bell Jar has always been on my radar and I¬†finally¬†decided it was the time.¬†Naturally, I had my hesitations in picking up this novel considering it’s semi-autobiographic and dark reputation, but I am so grateful I […]

  • defining rose.

    I’m at this place in my life where I have a radiant¬†vision of what I want my blog to portray¬†yet I¬†can’t directly define it.¬†I have¬†inspiration pulling at me from every direction that it has¬†clouded my ability to make a concrete reality of¬†my own personal flare.¬†For weeks now I’ve fumbled around with phrases and words that […]

  • diy balyage.

    Over the last few summer months I formed an unhealthy obsession with The Bachelorette. As foolish as I feel to admit, this ridiculously framed show has become my guilty pleasure. Along with following the journey of Jojo this season, I¬†couldn’t help but admire her perfectly curled and coloured hair. So naturally, I decided to try […]

  • the best revenge.

    Sometimes I¬†stumble across¬†a quote that resonates with me so deeply that¬†I find the words drifting¬†to¬†my mind months later. It’s¬†almost as if under the surface the words became¬†my¬†unconscious life mantra or constant¬†words to live by.¬†A particularly relevant quote I’ve found myself gravitating back to in recent weeks is the idea that “the best revenge comes from […]

  • the opposite of loneliness.

    There is an indefinable¬†feeling associated with¬†the experience of reading a book. (Yes, I am admitting to being¬†a¬†complete nerd, but hear me out).¬† Reading offers an escape into the world of a character whose story is molded by diverse predicates¬†than our own.¬†It provides us perspective through these¬†glimpses into the mind of another; both character and author.¬†I […]
