About a month ago I was contacted by a very lovely employee of the LookBookStore.com, which is an online fashion store. Vanessa invited me to be apart of their “blogger program” to help promote a couple of their items. She was nice enough to send me two items for free to enjoy and review for you lovely birds out there! ❤
Seeing as the weather has taken a huge turn and we await the arrival of the snow, the items I chose were to keep warm, but stay fashionable at the same time 😉 . My first item is this “oversized” knit cardigan, now.. It COULD be oversized if I was 5’5″, being 5’8″ though, this is more just a medium-long cardigan. The sleeves don’t reach my wrists which doesn’t really bother me, the zipper is a bit on the cheap side, other than that i love this knit cardigan! ❤ I think it would be even more awesome if it had a hood! Just sayin ❤
This knit cardigan costs $42.00. You can find it here!
My next was my favorite thing on the entire website! Which is this WICKED “Black Faux Fur Coat”. I’m super excited to wear this for halloween, and throughout the winter! This actually keeps me pretty dang warm and fits me PERFECT. This retails at $86.00 & is sooo soft yet fierce!
You can purchase the coat here!:
I love love looove the products I was sent and I highly recommend checking out their selection! Thanks again Vanessa you were very well spoken and understanding to my needs and questions! x

I recently had the confidence to reach out and find new faces for my portfolio. As I lurked many random beautiful ladies on facebook, I came by two very lovely ladies that I had the pleasure of meeting up with and having a ton of fun photographing and making new friends with!
So I want to share the photos in parts so you have more of a feel for each outfit and then i’ll be posting them on my photography page once they are all posted on my main blog 🙂
I am happy to introduce everyone to a new friend of mine Kailey Cooper, you can find this look also on her lookbook that she just started!

Getting ready for a 70’s party tonight super excited to let my inner love for disco shine tonight!
Recently I’ve been on the hunt for cheap candles in glass container/wear and have found it rather difficult coming across candles that aren’t $10+. Unless of course you are at Dollorama which nothing is less than $3 but sometimes not what you’re looking for. Sometime last week I made my way into town, alllll the way to the Canadian Wholesale and have found these adorable $1.25 vanilla bean “starlytes”. They smell e-x-a-c-t-l-y like vanilla cake with Betty Crocker’s vanilla icing…. You know the one, and they come in these adorable “mason jar” looking containers. LOVE!
Over the past year or so, i’ve been experimenting with different drug store face wash’. I finally feel like I have hit the jack pot with this one! ST.Ives Naturally Clear, Green Tea Scrub, smells absolutely divine. It has a very mild scrub to it, and leaves your face feeling amazingly fresh and soft. It contains salicylic acid which is an acne treatment, which really does make a noticeable difference after washing your face. I’m pretty sure you can pick this up at almost any drug store & I will definitely be picking this one up again.
I got this argan oil for a christmas present, probably about 3 years ago. Which is absolutely ridiculous that I didn’t really start using it until last year. I did come across this product at Wall-Mart for only $10, and I believe that any human that applies heat or dye of any sort should have a bottle of argan oil. It is so unbelievably repairing for dry/fried, dead ends & damage of any kind to the hair. It really leaves your hair feeling healthy, with enough nurture for silky goodness! I brought this to Mexico with me last November and this helped save my hair from sun damage & all the salt water swimming can be harsh on your hair. I’ve been using it ever since. Also this bottle will last you what will seem for ever, I only use a drop ever time I get out of the shower. I do find if i use too much (over 2 drops) it can leave me hair feeling a bit oily, hence the argan “oil”.
If you come across this white tea & blueberry at the store, pick it up! It is sooo yummy! The only ingredients are filtered water, cane sugar, white tea, natural blueberry flavour and citcric acid. They also have just a regular ice tea which is also delicious. Random, simple and very worth trying 😉
Hello lovely birds, I apologize for my absence and leaving all you lovely people hanging. Although I didn’t want to bore you with photo’s of myself all the time and look like some snobby self struck young woman who can’t get enough of herself. Which I am not for the record.
I did feel that this photo is worth sharing though, it was taken only about an hour ago when it was still light out.. I just realized its only 8:44 PM and it’s already pretty dark out :C That makes me a little sad in the heart.. August has definitely taken a turn towards Autumn. In July it was light out until about 10PM! Which was amazing. But I guess summer is almost over, so we better enjoy our last summer days while they last. I, myself will be spending most of my Summer and Autumn working indoors sadly enough. I hope the outcome is lots of money and wishing to move to Vancouver maybe for Winter & Spring, but we will see where life takes me.
Feeling a bit more confident today, after work I got all dolled up, thought my boyfriend may be going boating so I thought that would be my chance to film a video.. But he didn’t want to go without me (which is lame) but I don’t blame him because i’m fabulous. So I only got around to taking some photos and this is my favorite out of tonight’s bunch. However, another day passes and I have yet again failed myself and whom ever out there actually wants to see a new video from me. Maybe tomorrow? It’s too dark now and I don’t have good lighting in my house 😦
I want to trigger my inner&outer beauty by taking a photo of myself (in this modern world we now refer to this as a #selfie) everyday for hopefully a full year to show confidence as I grow into the woman I am to become 🙂 here is a couple I’ve already snapped.
I’ve created an instagram specifically for this! So feel free to follow me and let me know you found me through my blog!
