new Forever 21 jeans

I recently bought 2 new pairs of jeans from Forever 21. I bought the promo jeans which are super cheap then I immediately did a DIY on them. For DIY's I like to use cheaper items or older items so then if I do happen to wreak the item I don't feel so bad. Anyways, I did a easy fix which was cutting off the bottom of them as jeans are always to long on me and I like the look of a frayed bottom. Then on one of the jeans I took an x acto knife and just cut a slit into the knee. There you have it, done. Super easy and now I have two different and new pairs of jeans.

Have fun shopping like mad today!!!

First of all I want to say Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends. With Thanksgiving comes Black Friday. We all know how crazy it can get in the States but Canada is starting to get pretty crazy with it as well. Everyone is having awesome sales (most of which are starting today) and people go nuts. I have to work the weekend because its going to be absolutely insane and its suppose to be really nice out too. Are you guys going to do Black Friday shopping? It is too crazy for me, I will stay at home, but there is always online shopping where there are more great deals. Don't forget to check out the saving at Shopbop here.

About the outfit, layering is really important to stay warm but also adding layers brings some depth and gives it a little fashion forward touch. I don't go crazy with layers, but using neutral colors keeps it basic and easy to style, especially if you don't normally layer.

Wednesdays Wishlist - Gift Ideas for Him

Wednesdays wishlist - Gift Ideas for Him - Vancouver Fashion Blogger
Paul Smith socks, S'well bottle, WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie wallet, Impossible polaroid camera, Tivoli Audio bluetooth radio, Casall Jump rope, Obey beanie, Rag & Bone belt, Bluelounge desk, Sperry Top-Sider shoes, Calvin Klein underwear, Begg scarf, Alexander Olch tie and Komono watch


I don't know about you but I find it hard to shop for men. Maybe if your guy is into fashion but the men in my family aren't really and never say they need anything. I usually just end up getting them a shirt or back in the day a CD. But here I have come up with some great options for whether they are fashion forward or not. Any guy I have ever met is always into music so the retro bluetooth radio is such a cool gift, especially if your wanting to get a bigger item. Also I find its great to get guys those small items that they don't necessarily think of like a scarf, watch or just some new underwear. I always make sure to put socks and underwear in my boyfriends stocking each Christmas. Color wise its always good to stick to more neutrals like black, grey, brown and navy. Always chic and classic!!

Eastdane (which is connected to Shopbop) is a great place to find everything for Men, with a great selection of designers and great quality pieces. It is always good to buy investment pieces for Men as they usually don't do much shopping for themselves so they need good quality that will last. Check it out, it has the same promo going on right now, so save big!!!

Life sometimes can feel unbearable, whether it be from work, relationships or money, etc. All these things can have huge effects on our well being and bring us down. I am trying to stay positive and happy but there are a few things right now that are bringing me down. I won't go into detail but sometimes I need to let out how I am feeling to start to feel better and to help me realize that its not just me that goes through hard times. Everyone has there own battles in life but we manage to get through them and move on. I am just hoping that time comes sooner then later. Luckily cute outfits like this can help brighten my day!!!

My boyfriend surprised me with the best present I could as for. Not only did I need it as my other one was about to break down but I have been wanting a Mac for a long time and he got the Mac Book Pro with retina. So happy with it. I have the best boyfriend ever. I also got some lovely gifts from some amazing friends like Not that Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham, Victoria Secret lotion, a cupcake and chocolates and cards. I had a fantastic birthday, its going to be hard to top this one!!!

Creative Nails

Vancouver fashion blogger - creative nails

I recently got my nails done. I went to see the lovely and talented Catherine of Sundaybeauty. It is amazing what she can do, I was very impressed. The idea behind the design she did for my nails was actually from a photo she found on my Instagram that I put up which I thought was really cool. Black and gold stripes and marble. I never would have thought of that but I am glad she did. So creative. I love them!

Stay tuned for tomorrows exciting post!!
