Hey guys! How’s everyone doing? Hope the answer is “great” or if you’re in school and it’s midterm season at least an “I’m surviving”. I’m also in midterm season and it’s a busy time so I’ll be keeping my post shorter than usual. Hope that’s cool with you guys but the pictures are the best part anyways, right? Continue reading

Falling for Fall Fashion at Place D’Orleans

Fall is finally here!!! We’ve already talked about why I love fall and fall fashion so much (if you missed that convo read it here). But this fall, I have even more of a reason to be excited for the season thanks to Place D’Orleans‘ “Fall for a Fabulous Find”campaign. Place teamed up with myself, Alyssa Beltempo, Emily Smith and Erin Elizabeth and challenged us to style our best head to toe fall outfit with pieces we could find at the mall. I was so thrilled at this opportunity because of course I love a good fashion challenge and Place is somewhere I go to quite often since it’s in my area, and did I mention that I love fall fashion!?  Continue reading

Hey guys! Happy labour day weekend! I’m heading to a cottage this weekend to enjoy the last bit of summer. But while I wait on everyone else (I’m usually the last one out the door but not today #winning) I thought I’d quickly share with you these outfit shots. About two weeks ago the lovely people at Krowd Magazine asked to feature me in their street style section and of course I said yes! I met up with one of their awesome photographers Odusi Oladimeg downtown here in Ottawa, Continue reading

Back to School with Simons

_DSC9896-Edit

Who’s ready to go back to school!? Are you raising your hand? No? Me neither. I used to like going back to school when I was in high school, hmmm actually make that elementary school. Back to university just marks the beginning of stress season, all nighters, eating terribly, looking like a zombie with unwashed hair…should I go on? As much as school can be a complete and total pain, I always try to remember how lucky I am to have the opportunity to go to school and how valuable education is. Continue reading

Outfit Round Up: Bluesfest 2016

FullSizeRender-8

Hey guys! In my last post,I shared an outfit with you that I styled for Bluesfest. Like I mentioned last time, it was my first time attending the festival and I had a blast!! My favourite shows were Belly (surprisingly), The Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Nelly. I would’ve definitely added Drake to that list had he shown up as the surprise guest at the Future show like the rumours were saying. I’m not even going to go into that because the disappointment was soooo real *ugly cries*.

Black Out

FullSizeRender-4

Hey guys!! This look has be hanging out on my laptop for sooo long now (you can tell by the fresh snow I was walking in). I think it’s finally time to share since spring is almost here and you’ll judge my procrastination even more if I wait any longer. I’ve been wearing a lot of all black looks lately because 1. I love wearing black 2. It’s easy to wear and style when I’m rushing to school and 3. It was my way of making sure I could be found in all the snow we were getting buried in. Continue reading

DIY: Pom Pom Keychain

FullSizeRender[2]

Hey guys! Wow it’s been forever since I last blogged!! Im back in hell…school so it’s been harder to find the time to blog. I’m trying to get back to it and manage my time better which is why I’m back this week with a DIY. Back when I shared my Christmas gift guide, I talked about these pom pom keychains that I was seeing everywhere. I still think they’re adorable so I went out looking for some to buy and wtf?! They are so over priced!! I was not down to pay any of the prices I saw so I decided that they looked pretty simple and that I could probably figure out a way to make them….so I did. Continue reading

All White & A Little Grey

IMG_8197

I’ve been staring at my laptop screen for way longer than I’d like to admit, trying to figure out what the hell to write about today. It’s been a real struggle, but the blogging gods have answered my prayers because frankly they’re probably sick of my whining and now I have so much to say my hands can’t type fast enough to get it all out. I’m gonna pipe down, have some food and I’ll get back to this a little less hangry (It’s a real thing, google it). Continue reading

“You look Amish” – Mom

IMG_8439

“You look Amish.” That’s the lovely comment I got from my mother when she first saw me in this hat 😂. My answer: “Bishh swerve!!” No I’m kidding! She would’ve killed me. It went more like this: “Well I’m the cutest Amish I’ve ever seen, so bye Felicia!” My mom literally comes up with the funniest ways to describe some of the pieces in my closet, especially the ones she’s not so fond of. Another one of my favourite examples is her calling Harem pants “diarrhea pants”. Yup that’s what I deal with lol. Anyone else have a family member that just doesn’t understand your style?

End of Summer Haul

IMG_7547

Can we just have a moment of silence for the summer that was. I could just cry thinking of the cold ahead. I do love fall though! Fall fashion is definitely my fave, but let’s be real, fall in Ottawa is more like a fling. Winter is the real commitment if you ask me. I’m sending off the summer by sharing with you some of the newest beauty and fashion items I’ve purchased this summer.  Continue reading
