These Zara glitter booties are such a staple in my closet already… and it’s only day one!

PicMonkey CollageHow perfect are they! Wear with Jeans, leggings, skirts, dresses ANYTHING!!

They can be ordered here: http://www.zara.com/ca/en/sale/woman/shoes/glitter-booties-c541568p2381517.html

TIPS:

– Comfort level 8

– The glitter stays on

– No grip on sole so can be slippy

– They had sold out of most sizes, I am a small 7 but ordered a 6 1/2, they fit perfectly

Happy shopping

It’s… Friday Friday

It's... Friday Friday

In the words of Rebecca Black ‘It’s Friday’ night …and a lot of you are probably going out on the town. But remember it’s summer, dressing shouldn’t be as difficult…. there is no need for layering or heavy garments and accessories.

Try a simpler approach this summer… a cute little dress is easy to throw on with a great pair of your fav sky high heels.

If you walk like a penguin in heels … then flats are ok too! Summer is the prefect time to throw on a cute pair of flat pumps or oxford shoes. Pair this with a cute tap short, and maybe a crop top and you are ready for dinner and dancing!

But remember the MOST IMPORTANT thing about getting dressed is…. feeling confident! You are HOT honey!

Have fun and be safe

Throw it back

Throw it back

In honor of Thursday I decided to … ‘throw it back’. However I am not going so far into the past, I am heading back to last Wednesday to be exact.

Last Wednesday I had the pleasure of working with local Hamilton band ‘The Arkells’. However this time I wasn’t in charge of wardrobe, I was acting alongside some great peeps, for The Arkells much music promo.

For the promo I got to flaunt myself in scantily clad clothing…. actually I better save all the info to myself (otherwise Director Amit Dabrai might kill me), you guys will just have to watch it for your self. Keep your eyes peeled!

If you haven’t heard of The Arkells then you have probably been living under a rock. Go and check out some of their music https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClNp7LRhAT_NsS1KzrJMvhQ perfect for these sunny days!

Help me… I’m melting!

Help me... I'm melting!

Summers in the office can be DEADLY… the heat, the smell, the stick.

Finding summer office attire can be a hard transition as you don’t want to give off the wrong impression. However, thanks to our friends at H&M, Zara, Forever 21 etc finding summer appropriate items to mix into your office attire is a little bit easier.

Melting in your shirt and pants ensemble? Try switching those pants out for a cute pair of shorts, or a flowy skirt.

Sizzling in the structure of the classic office dress? Wear a slightly less form fitting dress, and try wearing summer friendly materials, such as cotton and linen.

Just by switching out various items in your outfit, can guarantee you a better cooler summer working experience.

Please Sir can I have some… Pimm’s

Please Sir can I have some... Pimm's

After a great Saturday night with some amazing friends, drinking in the moonlight… it was pretty simple to figure out what I wanted to talk about today……ALCOHOL.

Last night I figured I would let my Canadian friends in on a British summer treasure… The Pimm’s Cup. May I say… THEY BLOODY LOVED IT!

The Pimm’s cup is an incredibly refreshing drink consisting of:

Pimm’s #1
Lemon
Cucumber
Ginger Ale

You can also add things like: raspberries, strawberries, oranges, apples, mint etc. It’s also a cute idea to serve your Pimm’s cup in a mason jar.

So if your looking for a new summer drink, do try out the British classic…. I know you’ll love it. But do be warned it can be deadly.

Style Crush

Style Crush

My style crush of the week is the gorgeous Rosie Huntington Whitely. My British sister RULED this 2014 Cannes Film Festival with her effortlessly chic looks.

I want to wear EVERY single outfit… waaaaaaa

She wore a slinky black Cushnie Et Ochs dress for the De Grisogono party she finished it off perfectly with a pop of color in her earrings.

For the premiere for ‘The Search’ she wore a perfectly fitting embroidered Gucci gown with minimal accessories.

To top it off she killed it by wearing a Emilio Pucci gown to the amfAR Aids Gala… although pointer I did hate the black shoes.

Well Miss Rosie Huntington Whitely a massive congratulations to your talented stylist… and of course you for creating yourself some show stopping Cannes. STUNNING!

Fashion Friday

Fashion Friday

For my first fashion Friday, I wanted to talk about something that is a staple in my closet!

The JUMPSUIT!

I have pretty much been OBSESSED with jumpsuits for the past year and I am so happy that they are now accessible to purchase thanks to our wallet happy friends … H&M, Forever 21, Zara etc.

There is something about a jumpsuit that is so chic… they are so comfortable.
Wear it casual with a pair of flats or your fav converses for a casual everyday look or spice it up for a night out with a pair of heels.

However you wear your jumpsuit just know you look chic … without the effort! (shhh)
