Cute and Casual Fall OOTD

Today I have a Fall OOTD post for you guys! If you are one of my regular readers then I’m sure you remember me going off about how Fall in Canada isn’t as glamorous as it seems and there are only a few days where it isn’t cold or raining. Well, I had one of those days this week and it was so beautiful that it inspired me to do this ootd! The birds were chirping, it was around 15 degrees (Celsius), not a cloud in the sky, and as you will see in the pictures the leaves make for some mesmerizing scenery!I think it’s perfect for a short walk or a stroll through downtown, details are below all the pictures! (Feel free to click on any of the images below for a bigger image)

Fall Fashion Must- Haves!

Yes, the leaves are changing into beautiful colors and Starbucks has gotten tastier drinks than ever but honestly Fall is getting the best of me. IN the mornings I always think I finally figured out the weather but then I go outside and I either freeze because I didn’t dress warm enough or I sweat like crazy the entire day because I felt like it was – 10 degrees whereas it was actually +10 degrees. Or weather just really wants to make me feel crappy and it decides to rain! SO I am making this post to help me get my stuff together and hopefully will help you guys too! I’ve pieced together several fashion items that I think are perfect for Fall, to keep us at the right temperature and looking cute while doing so.

Over the knee boots:

Over the knee boots, especially in suede, are everywhere now and its no wonder, I mean look how cute they are! Personally I love them because since they are so long, they add an extra layer of warmth so that you calves stay toasty all day. For me, I find wearing skirts and dresses really hard in the Fall because my legs always get to cold, but these babies are a solution to that! Between the boots and the skirt, there probably won’t be more than 5 inches of skin that isn’t covered by a thick layer of clothing.

Sweater dresses:

Like I said above, I find wearing dresses in the Fall really difficult but sweater dresses have made it a bit easier. Since sweater dresses are made out of thick material like sweaters (hence the name) it will ensure that you stay nice and warm. Although if your legs get cold like mine do, than you can pair a sweater dress with over the knee boots for a really chic and most importantly warm outfit!

Rain jacket:

Here in Canada, it rains constantly which is why a cute rain jacket is a must! I’ve heard people say many times that rain jackets can never be cute but let me assure you that those people are wrong. One example of a cute rain jacket is the one below from aliexpress.com

Cute rain boots:

Rain jackets and rain boots come hand in hand, so to match your cute rain jacket you need cute rain boots! Lately I’ve just been using my Timberlands as rain boots but I usually come home with wet feet… I do have normal rain boots but I just hate they way they look and resist to wear them anywhere outside my garden. I also didn’t feel like spending a whole lot of money for Hunters or similar expensive brands. So I found these cute ankle rain boots! I really like the way they look, they kind of remind me of Blunt stones… and they are %100 waterproof.

(from aliexpress.com)

Cute ankle boots:

For those truly beautiful Fall days where it isn’t raining and isn’t cold enough for over the knee boots these cute suede ankle boots are perfect! I really like these that I found at Softmoc because they can be on a bit more formal side and can be worn with dresses but they can also be really casual and be worn with jeans, I’m actually planning on purchasing this exact pair later today!

Scarves:

I can bet you saw this before! This year, these really big plaid scarves have really been trending. I’ve seen all types of blanket scarves (I have a black and grey one that my mom bought for me in Italy) but the plaid ones are simply everywhere I look! Honestly I love blanket scarves, they are warm and so soft that the whole day I just want to run my hand up and down the fabric! They are called blanket scarves because it’s literally as if you are wrapping yourself in a blanket- but a fashionable so it’s okay. 🙂

Whole Sale Buying Review

About a month and a bit I wrote a wishlist post about a really cool site called Whole Sale Buying, you can check it out here. In case you haven’t seen my post, I’ll tell you a bit about it right now. It’s a website that sells whole sale but also just separate pieces at the same price you would get it at wholesale price. None of the items are from popular brands but all the items are really cute! Most of the items including make-up, clothes, purses, shoes, electronics are from $1 – $20! Most the clothes (men’s and women’s) are under $10. Now when I was wrote the wishlist post, especially since I haven’t ordered from there before many of you guys were skeptical that the deals are actually that good. I have to admit, it did seem too good to be true. So I decided to test it out and ordered from there. Here are the things I got:

cute crop top

I got this crop top which says, “You are my (sun) my (moon) and all my (stars)”. It really reminded me of the crop top from Brandy Melville that I always see everywhere and it was so cute that I had to get it! It was only $3.97! Here is the link if you would also like to get it. It’s  machine washable and the texture of it is really really soft.\

cute necklaceThis is one of the two necklaces that I got. It says, “Love beyond the moon and stars”. Kind of sticking with the astrological theme like the crop top. Its a nice bronze color that I think will go great with lot’s of my t-shirts. Here is it’s link.red blouse for cheapI also got this wine red top with beautiful detailing on the sleeves and at the bottom of the shirt. You can click on the pictures to see them bigger, you can also see some of the detailing in the picture above. It also comes in black and was $5.65 here is the link.shoulderless blouseThis is the last top that I got and it’s my favorite of the three I purchased. It’s a black and white blouse that is shoulderless. It also has a drawstring at the bottom which makes the blouse even more flowy. This shirt was only $5.23 and the link is here.

I strongly urge you  to try out this website, I assure you that it’s not a scam. These prices are amazing and so hard to come by. The only cons to this website is the since the clothes are so cheap they aren’t the best quality, when I say this I don’t mean that they rip or anything, I actually machine washed all my items and they came out fine, what I mean is most of the items are polyester blend or 100% polyester. That doesn’t bother me but it is something to consider. The second and last con is the shipping took very long, so always give yourself at least a month for the items to arrive. Other than that, I think this website is amazing, and I will definitely be doing lots of online shopping from it! I also got another necklace but I’m saving that for a special OOTD post!

How I go from Summer to Fall!

With Fall officially here, leaves are not the only things changing color! Whenever seasons change, our style and color choices change too! I’m going to show you some of the ways that I change my style to transition into the Fall from Summer! For me, the three main things that change from Summer to Fall are my nails, hair, and outfits! And obviously my Starbucks latte (Pumpkin Spice is the way to go)! In this post I’ll be showing you some of my favorite Fall colors for everything beauty related!

Nails:

Obviously as the weather gets colder everyone gets a bit more gloomy and we all go towards the darker colors or nudes instead of pastels and bright colors. Some of my favorite Fall nail polishes are:

Hair:Hello Autumn

I don’t dye my hair too much, but when I do the seasons definitely effect whether I’m going darker or lighter. In the Fall and Winter time I love deep chocolate brown and raven black colors. I find that those two look striking in the winter time, it may be because of the contrast of those colors against the snow. Here is an online quiz  made by Madison Reed, a hair color company that has re-engineered permanent color to give everyone a chance to get hair that looks like it was done by professionals at home! You can take it to see which hair color is best for you, It asks you just about everything about your hair, from your skin color to hair texture to determine which hair color would best suit you!

Makeup:

My face makeup stays the same, but I usually change up my eye looks and my lipstick for Fall! On my eyes I really like using natural colored and/ or copper and gold eye shadows. I really love browns paired with gold because it gives such a natural yet still big appearance on your face, smokey eyes (especially with browns) are another one of my favorite things for Fall. And of course, I match the natural(ish) eye shadow with a bold and dark (darker than usual) lip color. Here are some of my favorite lipstick shades (My favorite is the YSL limited Edition in Black Red):

Easy Halloween Nails You Can Do At Home!

I really wish I posted this post earlier because honestly I love all these nail ideas! If I’d done this earlier then I would have been able to do several of these before Halloween, I feel like it would be a bit strange if I did these after Halloween. Now I’m only going to have time to do one of these… so help me out and PLEASE comment which one I should do for Halloween, its too hard for me to decide!

black and white nails

I wouldn’t be able to do this but that’s just because I can’t even draw a moon on paper! Although if you can draw a moon and are looking for a subtle but Halloweeny look, then I suggest this! Simply get black nail polish, put a matt top coat and draw on the symbols above^. Like I said, it’s totally doable if you can draw.

halloween bloody nail  halloween mummy nails

This seems much more intricate than it really is, what I really love about this is that its ok if not everything is perfect. You simply draw horizontal lines across you nail. Then to do the eyes, draw another vertical line and then using a dotter, make a big black circle. Once that dries, use your dotter again and make a white circle inside the black circle so that only the rim of the black circle is showing. The last step is to draw yet another black circle inside the white one, and that’s it!

halloween easy nail tutorialhalloween nail tutorial

This one is so ridiculously simple but it looks so good! Choose a base coat (preferably orange since it is Halloween) and paint your whole nail. Then use a black and white glitter top coat on the tips of your nails. I actually have the perfect sparkle top coat for this, it looks exactly like the one above (I suspect it is actually the same one), it is called Black Tie Optional by Hard Candy and it only cost around $3!halloween nails easy halloween nails tutorial

Do you guys remember crackle? It was “the thing” about a year ago and now no one uses it anymore! Well if you are like me and never through out makeup until you finished it, then chances are you have a black crackle lying around somewhere! I find that the crackle looks perfect for Halloween, especially with orange as the base!halloween nails

This one also seems way harder to do than it actually is. First paint your nail any base color. Then the one hard part comes next, making the head! To make a head draw a semi circle first then two triangles near the sides of your nail (it isn’t too hard if you section of your nail). Then draw to big ovals inside the head and a small white line. Voila!

For more great Halloween ideas look at my pinterest!

Heatless Curls, overnight, quick, and simple!

I know everyone hates getting up extra early to curl or straighten their hair, but unfortunately that’s how we make our hair look so good! But not only does the curling make us get less sleep, but it also ruins our hair! Which is why heatless curls are lifesavers! Here is quick and easy way to get curls overnight without using any heat at all!

heatless curlsSupplies:
-hair elastics
-comb

The Steps
1. Brush out your DAMP hair ( this is great for after a shower).
2. Once you’ve fully de-knotted your hair, separate about a one inch section of hair.
3. Fold the piece about 1/3 of the length of it ( refer to pictures above).
4. Fold that over again, now your strand is 2/3s up your head.
5. Now tie it with any elastic of your choice.
6. Repeat all steps until all  your hair is tied in these strands, you may want to do your bangs separately with a smaller elastic.

overnight heatless curlsAfter sleeping like this and adding some of my favorite oil ( use any such as Moroccan oil) and my curls turned out like this! Voilà! Hope this turns out great for you too!
