When I’m not quite wanting to wear a coat but the weather calls for more than a sweater, I tend to gravitate towards a blanket scarf. One of my favourite things about a blanket scarf is it can be worn a variety of ways; Over the shoulders like a shall (as I’ve styled here), wrapped around your neck as the classic scarf style or as a cushion/leg blanket when you are at the stadium cheering on your favourite sports team. The colouring of this scarf from She In is perfect–the greys and blacks are sure to hide any dirt or coffee spills I encounter throughout my day and it pairs well any colour under the rainbow. What is your favourite way to style a blanket scarf?
Leather jacket, studded booties and a slouchy toque has me feeling like the ultimate cool girl. Or maybe I just feel this way because I’ve had Tove Lo’s ‘Cool Girl’ playing in my car on repeat for the past week. Either way, I’m loving this casual look. Each component of this outfit is unique on it’s own–the booties with their western feel, this totally cozy leopard tank is completely versatile and this Hooked by Taenelle toque is such a gorgeous colour and also ultra snuggly. Oh and might I add, Taenelle is the ultimate sweetheart with a gorgeous array of crocheted products in every colour under the rainbow. I can’t way to dive into the weekend in this look.
Trying new beauty products is always fun yet somehow I always gravitate back to my favourites. Over the past couple of months I stepped out of my comfort zone to try a few beauty products to potentially push aside some of my favourites. Some were misses while a few of them were major hits! The following are 7 beauty products I’ve integrated into my regular routine.
Million Dollar Tan- Cabana Tan: I have never been a huge fan of at home sunless tanning. Somehow I always manage to look like an orange zebra. I tend to either go into a tanning salon for a spray tan or just bare the consequences of being as white as snow. That is until I tried this sunless tanning product. I used a tanning mitt to apply the product (which is seriously a life changer) and in a few hours I had a gorgeous glow. I didn’t look orange at all, just the perfect amount of bronze glow.
Smashbox- Photo Finish Foundation Primer Light: I’m a firm believer in primers. I’m the worst at touching up my makeup throughout the day so a primer saves my butt day in and day out. Like it says in the title, this primer is light, and I love every aspect of that. I do not like to put on a thick layer of anything prior to caking on another mountain of foundation.
Ardell Demi Wispies Lashes: I’ve said it a million times, I have the worst lashes. They are straight and blonde. Although I do love lash extensions, the upkeep does not always fit into my budget. I live by these demi wispy strip lashes. They not only open up my eyes, they complete my full makeup look.
MaskerAide Sheet Mask and Hydrating Eye Patches: When wearing these masks or eye patches, I feel like a total goofball. It’s actually so entertaining. All kidding aside, these beauties make your face feel absolutely fresh. I’m a big fan of the eye patches as they definetly take down under eye puffing after a long week.
Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil: This is such an easy product to use. I’m not one for spending 20 minutes perfecting my eyebrows, I like to just touch them up and go. I also love that this is a two ended product, one end having a brush to comb your brows with and the other a pencil to fill them in.
FACE Atelier Ultra Foundation: I go from loving a very full coverage foundation to a very light BB cream. This foundation fits right in the middle of those two. It is fairly full coverage yet leaves your face with that dewy feel of a BB cream. Best part is it doesn’t require a setting powder.
