Weekend Recap: iPhone Snaps

Monday, June 27, 2016



Hi ladies & happy Monday!  How was your weekend?

On Friday night, I went to get my hair done for the first time in almost two years (!!!).  If you follow on Snap (I'm acoest1984), you saw the outcome and after living with it over the weekend, I'm not totally happy.  That said, she mentioned it would lighten more as I wash it, so I'm going to give it a few washes to see where we stand.

Essentially, I asked to bring up the blonde in my balayage, lighten around my face and in my bang, keep my natural base colour, and used this as my inspiration photo.  She did a great job blending, and the blonde came out quite beige, however, I am really bummed there isn't a huge contrast between the brown and blonde.  It definitely looks natural, I was just hoping for brighter blonde.

All that to say, I'll keep you posted on how it plays out after a few washes.  You can see an after pic in the photo below, which was taken Saturday afternoon.

Also, I will be sharing a huge Summer haul soon, with more warm-weather pieces, including swimwear, so stay tuned.

As always, thanks for watching! xo

An Easy Way to Wear a Body Chain

Thursday, June 23, 2016


O U T F I T  D E T A I L S   :  REVERSIBLE/OPEN-BACK TOP (SIMILAR)  |  DIY DENIM SHORTS (SIMILAR)  |  ALEXANDER WANG WEDGES (MORE SIZES) -- OLD (SIMILAR, STILL WANT THESE)  |  BAG  |  SUNGLASSES (SIMILAR)  |  A.CO DESIGNS BODY CHAIN

I have been loving body chains lately--see my Pinterest board as full proof--and think they are such a sexy way to add a little interest to whatever you've got going on.  I think a lot of us think of body chains as jewellery for the beach, and I did wear mine while we were on vacation, but I always want to get the most mileage out of my items by mixing in matching.  

That said, I paired this body chain I made, over a plain top to add some interest.  The back has a lot going on, and I love how the delicate chain kind of gets lost in the drapey fabric but still makes a big impact.  It would look equally as great paired over a muscle tee, or tucked under a crop top.


An Open Back Top & Black Denim

Tuesday, June 21, 2016


O U T F I T  D E T A I L S  :  ERRANT OPEN BACK TOP  (SIMILAR) |  BLACK DENIM -- OLD (SIMILAR, WANT THESE)  |  HEELS -- ON SALE! (MORE SIZES HERE, NUDE COLOUR)  |  CHOKER NECKLACE  |  BAG

I just finished a two hour cleaning sesh and am so ready to hit the hay but wanted to get this post up for you ladies.  If you follow along on Snap (I'm acoest1984), you know what I'm talking about--and PS, that pile of laundry is still there  #fail.

This look is all about that effortless, edgy style and transitioning it into Summer with open toes and a muscle tank.  As you can see, I can't get enough of chokers, whether it's a gold collar style, these faux suede ones or the tattoo version, it's becoming my go-to on the daily.  Throw in some fringe and call it day.



Weekend Recap: iPhone Snaps

Monday, June 20, 2016



Happy Monday & welcome back from the weekend.  Did you have a good one?  Mine was busy, productive and fun so let's jump in...

First, the juice above--obsessing over these.  Cold pressed juices are something I'm just discovering and falling in love with.  They will run you a pretty penny, but they are nice as a treat once in a while.   I've picked these ones up at Farmboy (if you're local) and they are made in London, Ontario--love that.  Additionally, if you wanted to stretch them a bit, try halving them and adding soda water, apple cider vinegar, fruit and spices.

More after the jump...
