Transitioning Seasons Outfit Fall OOTD

Hey guys,

I’ve talked before about how I love summer fashion, so I try to incorporate some of my favorite summer clothes in my Fall outfits too. It was an oddly beautiful day in Toronto so I decided to  go have a stroll downtown. Side note: I also wore this outfit to puppy lessons right before going downtown (the puppies are soo cute!). I find this outfit very earthy and natural, perfect for a casual day like the one I had.

The sandals I’m wearing are also really comfortable because they have a thick cushion on the sole, so they were fairly comfortable for all day walking (despite some blisters at the end of the day). The outfit details are below and don’t be afraid to comment if you have any other questions or would like to know some of the  makeup products I used 🙂

Simple Henna Designs For Summer

Henna is a beautiful symbol of culture and tradition, but it has also become one of the biggest summer trends. You can create beautiful designs on your body that stay on for a few weeks. It’s like a temporary tattoo. Since I’m not very artistic, I have decided to gather some pretty henna designs that anyone can do! I’ll also explain how to easily achieve the design!

I found this design particularly beautiful! It looks complex but if you break it up into a few small steps it can actually be pretty easy! You start off by just drawing a simple dot and two diamond shapes getting increasingly bigger around it . Then, draw the swirly lines that are connected to the edge of the diamond Voila, you’ve done the hardest part, now simply draw the 5 dots on either side of the diamond and the small lines around it and you’re finished!

To be honest, I’m not sure if this is a flower or sun but either way it’s a cute design! It’s pretty straight forward how to draw this, except with one trick. After drawing hte circle, use the tip of the henna applicator to drag out the little triangular things instead of using more henna, it will end up much cleaner and precise.

I have always found elephant henna tattoos adorable so I was determined to find one I could draw! This is probably the toughest design here, but if you look at it really close and do it one part at a time it is manageable! A tip is to start at the bottom and work your way up.

Image result for henna turtle

I also love tortoises in henna, and this tortoise looks complex but is in fact really easy to draw. Start with the shell and you can draw the square design of the shell very easy. Just draw two horizontal and two vertical lines. Inside the square you can do any design or even leave it blank. The rest of the body is pretty easy!

Favorite Nail Colors for Summer 2017

Hey guys,

Painting my nails is something that I have loved doing since I was a little girl, and as seasons change, I would change my taste in colors. Here are some colors that I’ve been loving to rock during the hot sunny months!

blue

This baby blue is a color that I love for summer, and for one main reason; it reminds me of the beach. The beach is my happy place and blue is known to be a calm and cooling color so whenever I have blue nails I always feel at bit more tranquil.purple nails

Ya, you can probably sense a pattern here… Light girly colors that are almost like pastels are my summer go to’s. That, or going really bold!lilac nails

This color just makes me think of flowers and innocence immediately. It’s like the innocent girl next door color, but add an accent somewhere and it’ll add a cool twist to the look. It is also a really great base if you wanted to try some cool designs.

white nails

Matt white nails are a classic, and it’s no surprise why! It looks great on all nail lengths and has an clean,fresh, fun look to it, all while being elegant at the same time! I absolutely love white nails when I tan, I love the contrast of white against my darker skin.

yellow nails

Remember how I mentioned being bold in one of the above pictures? Well this is an example of what I was talking about, yellow! Same as the white, yellow contrasts beautifully against bronzed skin and is such a vibrant color that just screams sun!

Hope you enjoyed reading about some of my favorite nail color picks, comment yours below! Also do not forget that I will be moving my blog some time soon! Lastly, if you are interested in getting in great shape with me for free, click the link below!

Beach Basics!

So summer is just around the corner (for me) although in other countries I know people are already going to beach! This makes me extremely jealous but what can I do, unfortunately I can’t change the weather!  With my little ramble being said,  I’m going to show you guys a few of my beach essentials!

An adorable bathing suit!

This is something pretty obvious but I cannot stress how important it is to find a bathing suit that you feel comfortable in! Even if it is a bit out of your price range, I strongly suggest you spend a bit more if it means you will feel confident in it! Everyone has their own personal body issues ( for me it’s my small chest) but don’t worry because I have you covered. For a small chest click here, big chest here,  for tummy issues here, if you  have no curves here, and for affordable bathing suit sites here!

Sunglasses

I love sunglasses so much that last year I had a white line on my nose from where my sunglasses were because I tanned everywhere except there! Although, this year someone brought to my attention that if you don’t buy good quality sunglasses, the lenses may actually be ruining your vision! So unfortunately, I think that most of those cute sunglasses from stores like Forever 21 or H and M aren’t the best for all day wear.

Cute Coverups

I love coverups even more than bathing suits, this is because with coverups you can highlight your best features and hide your worst! Here are a few of my favorite coverups!

Sunscreen!

Last year I really wanted to tan so I put on almost no sunscreen while I was on vacation in Mexico. I know, I’m an idiot! I never really understood how strong the U.V rays really are until I returned home with a bunch of brown spots on my legs. To this day I m still not certain what they were but I think that they were sun spots. Most have disappeared (there are still a few left) but it has taught me a lesson that I will never forget!

John Frieda Controlled Lightening Spray on Brown Hair Review

About a year ago, I had went to the hairdressers to ombre my hair. The hairdresser refused to use bleach on my hair so I ended up leaving the salon with a color I definitely did not want! Luckily there was a smooth transition so at least I didn’t have to worry about that! But I really hated the color so I was determined to find a cheap way to lighten  the color. I ended up purchasing the John Frieda Controlled Lightening Spray even though the instructions strictly said the it was for natural blondes only and I was naturally a brunette… oh well it worked out. It was $14 at a Shopper’s Drug mart, so it was a tiny bit more expensive than some other hair lightening products, but I heard great things about i so I decided the extra few dollars were worth it, and it still cost way less than getting your hair done again by a professional.

Summer Nail Inspos That You Can Do At Home

After a very long winter, summer is finally here! Although here in Toronto it really doesn`t look like it… eiither way it is summer and that means more time for beautiful nail designs! Since I`ve gotten so many positive reviews about my last nail post, I`ve decided to make another one!  I`ve gathered sevral images that I know can be recreated at home easily. Enjoy!

1. Sailor Nails!

This design reminds me so much of summer because it reminds me of sailors which reminds me of boats, which reminds me of oceans, which reminds me of vacation, which reminds me of….Summer. Yup, it`s like a mind map! Anyways its really simple to do but looks great and complicated.

    2. Different Neon Colors

Summer is the time to try new things, so if you want something bold and colorful, neon is the way to go!

3. Pinks and Nudes

Pinks and nude are soft gentle colors  that always make any outfit look more polished, elegant, and put together. I love wearing these nail colors all year round but pairing them with my nude sandals in the summertime is my favorite!   4. Indigo Blue Nail Design

This blue color is so majestic and paired with yellow and white like in this picture makes it the perfect summer manicure! And what makes it even better, it can be done at home! First paint your whole nail in blue (or whatever base color you want), then once its fully dry,put a strip of tape on diagonally from the middle of the side of your finger to the middle of the tips of your nail and paint what inside of the nail white. Then do the same on the other side except paint the inside yellow. I kinow this may sound confusing but you can also think of it as drawing 2 triangles on the tips of your nails. If you would like a whole tutorial with more pictures of this I`d be glad to do it, just leave a comment saying so 🙂
  5. Stripes

This design is so beautiful and can be down in any color want! Its really simple to create, all you need is 3 nail colors that are similar and tape. I think you get the gist of how to do this but if you don`t also feel free to leave acomment if you`d like a tutorial 🙂

These are my favorite nail designs/ colors for summer, I hope you enjoyed it!

Beats Pill Review + Playlist

When I’m studying, or cleaning my room, or just doing anything by myself I like to listen to music to fill the silence. I’ve been using a speaker that I got from my local dollar store and honestly it was fine. It was ok because i didn’t listen to my music too loud and I didn’t really care that much about the sound quality. But let me tell you, I did not know what I was missing! My family friends got it for me  on my birthday (which was a while ago but I just got to writing this review now) and so I started using it.  Here are some pictures of the packaging, what it looks like, and the chargers and wires it comes with.

IMG_4131IMG_4139

IMG_4152IMG_4142

As you can see, the packaging is really nice, so nice that I kept the box! Everything is themed black, red and white but you can also get the beats pill in a variety of colors such as white, red, pink and more! To see the other colors click on the link below. It also comes with a case for your beats pill, which makes it really portable.

Once I started using it, I knew I could never go back! Firstly it was wireless, so I could just turn on my Bluetooth and connect it to the Beats Pill. Whereas before I had to connect my phone with a wire and that made it a lot harder because then I couldn`t take my phone anywhere unless if I disconected it. But the main reason why i love this item so much is because the sound quality is soo good! I never noticed before just how bad my old speaker was. When listening to music using the pill, it sounds crisp and sharp as if you can hear every single sound individually but at the same time as well (if that makes any sense). It is pricey, but if you are looking to invest in a great quality speaker, this is definatly the right choice . Click here for a great price on the Beats Pill Portable Speaker (Black) – NEW.

Now on to my playlist. I usually find around 10 songs that I love and then play then on repeat, over and over agin. I`m aware it`s a really bad thing to do because then you get sick of them, and it`s true after listening to the same 10 songs for around 2 weeks I get sick of them and end up hating them… but then I just find new songs to love 😉 Currently on my repeat playlist I have:

Honey I’m Good by Andy Grammer

Heroes by Alesso

Wrapped up by Olly Murs

You Know You Like It by Dj Snake and Aluna George

Baby Boy by Beyonce

Can’t Stop Dancing by Becky G

Can’t Feel My Face by The Week-end

Cheerleader by OMI

I Want It That Way by The Backstreet Boys

Spin The World by Eric Zayne

Stitches by Shawn Mendes

I know this post was a bit different than my usual posts about make-up, beauty, and fashion, but I really loved this product and had to share it!
