Before I start talking about this outfit I first have to say that I met Lizzy Hadfield from Shot from the Street yesterday (see the Instagram post here) and I am still so happy about. She and her boyfriend and mom are soooo nice and I am just still on cloud 9 about it!!!

I don't get dressed up a lot, 1st because I don't go out much 2nd because my style is more casual and simple. So when I don't get dress for a night out, I love to wear a nice top with a basic pair of skinny jeans. That is probably one of my go to's for this type of occasion.

As you probably recognize if you saw yesterday's post, this top is one of the new items I recently bought. One thing that lacks in my wardrobe is nice summer tops so this one is warmly welcomed into my closet. I have already worn it a few times and I love it.

Also if you guys are ever looking for these items or similar pieces, I always post below budget and luxury options. I hope that helps, have a great day!!!!

I think I have a shopping problem

With all the new fall pieces coming in, it has been too hard to resist from bringing some into my wardrobe. So I think I have gotten a little carried away but I don't care because now I have some amazing things to wear for fall and winter. And some which can be carried over for Spring and Summer as well. I am not going to go more into detail about these pieces because I plan on making outfits with them all and showing you them more up close. SO EXCITED!!!

Summer has come late to Vancouver which shouldn't of surprised me because it's Vancouver and the weather has it's own schedule here. But I'm not complaining right now because it has been HOT here lately. The only problem with that is that my summer wardrobe is basically non-existent. In my closet is mostly pants, sneakers and thicker tops. I don't know where all my summer clothes went too. I feel like I have this problem every summer and I continuously forget to buy things that make sense for a summer style. So lately, even though it is super hot, these are the types of looks I have been wearing. My culottes or other pants and trying to find the lightest tanks and t-shirts I can.

Also at this time of year, I feel like it is not worth it to start buying summer items seeing as Fall is right around the corner...see the pickle I am in!?!?! And I have bought myself quite a few things lately and like I said, I have not been buying summer pieces. But more on that in my next post!!!!

First of all I have to say that I love these photos. They turned out so good, the lighting, editing and of course the amazing outfit...also my make-up looks nice too. So all in all, I am happy with the results.

These pants are new, I actually just bought these last week and I seriously love them. The 2 reasons being that 1st. They have a great fit on me, they are a super high rise wide leg that stop at the ankle and they are just so good, I have been wearing them a ton (when it's not too hot of course) and 2nd. They were $25 on sale at Aritzia...what a steal!!!! Like seriously, how good is that. So I think that definitely was money well spent. I already know that they are going to get a lot of use out of them.

I wore this all black, minimal awesome look for a day date with the boy to go to the movies. It was a bit of a cooler day so when it's like that I always want to go to the movies. We watched the latest Jason Bourne movie, I love action movies like that and those ones don't ever disappoint.

When it comes to my skin, I am always on the search for good products. So I love trying new things and testing out different brands and products that work for me and my skin. As I get older, this is becoming something that I think about more often as I want my skin to stay healthy and looking young. Luckily I have been told I have good skin and I do look younger then I actually am (thank goodness) but even with that being said, I have my struggle areas and a big one being dark under eye circles which makes me look tired. So finding products that actually work and help for that is something I am always on the look out for.

Which is why I was so happy to collaborate with Racinne, a Korean biotechnology skincare brand that is all about anti-aging products which we all want essentially. They sent me the Ultimate Youth Power Eye Serum which is suppose to revitalize and smooth out under eye wrinkles. And I have to say I have actually really liked using this product, I can tell the difference, it's not as dark under my eyes and I don't look tired which is exactly what I wanted. Also it is super easy to use with the applicator build in. 

So with that being said, after using this product and with the kindness of Racinne I am hosting a giveaway for one of you to win a skincare travel set, how amazing!!! I wish I could enter. So below if you follow the steps you could be the lucky winner of this amazing travel set including:

Ultimate Youth Power Cream
Ultimate Youth Power Neck Emulsion
Ultimate Youth Power Serum
Ultimate Youth Power Mask
Gentle Cleansing Foam

* This giveaway is open to residents of Canada and USA only. Good Luck!!!

I try to be healthy in my daily diet but I do still tend to have things that aren't so great for me so lately I have been trying to be a bit better and started making more smoothies at home which I have really have enjoyed. Especially making smoothie bowls with yummy stuff on top is the best and eating it with a spoon. So the one I have been making at home is very simple either for breakfast or for a snack. I don't get crazy with ingredients and stay basic but that is my favourite and it's so good. So here is my recipe that I use and I never measure things, I just pour things in.

- A handful or so of frozen raspberries (or whatever frozen berries you have would work)
- 1 banana
- About a table spoon of hemp seeds
- And enough water to make it nice and smooth ( You could use juice or coconut water but I normally just use water)

You could also add chia seeds, honey (I sometimes do that) and if you use protein powder you could add that as well, but like I said I keep mine very simple but very delicious. So instead of adding chia seeds inside the smoothie, I like to add them on top, same with coconut flakes and other fruit like kiwis, strawberries, oranges...whatever you want!!! And Voila, thats it, then you just enjoy!!!
