Jord Watches

It’s no secret that I am obsessed with the colour pink. Believe it or not, I actually used to be ashamed of it because my friends used to tease me about how girly I am and then to say my favourite colour was pink… oh boy I would’ve never heard the end of it. However, over the years I gained more confidence and now.. I am a proud pink girl!

I was first introduced to Jord watches when I got one for my boyfriend. I couldn’t believe the luxurious box that it came in and the high quality of watch. I knew I had to have one for myself!

So when Jord watches asked me to do a holiday campaign, I was over the moon! I obviously picked the one with the pink face. I love how chic and classy it looks. It does not feel bulky and it’s actually super light. Although it’s made out of wood, it feels super luxurious especially because the back is clear and you can see all the little pieces working!

You can use this link for a 25% off coupon if you’re thinking of buying their watches for yourself for as a gift! They have lots of option for both men and women. 

Whats style of watch do you like wearing? Comment below and let me know!

Dresses and Boots

There is something special about fall fashion that I love so much. I especially adore dresses and boots for this time of year. I always find myself gravitating towards florals and deep rich colours.

I love wearing my dresses with booties if the weather is warm enough or knee highs with shorter dresses. 

You can also layer your summer clothes by wearing a cardigan or even a scarf and boots!

My dress is a year old, so I linked a couple of dresses that are very similar! Click on the picture and it will take you to the link.

Do you like wearing your dresses with booties or knee highs? Let me know in the comments below!

Zaful Review

I’m always excited when I come across affordable clothing stores, but I’m also apprehensive. I’ve had bad experiences where the items do not match the pictures and I’ve had great experiences where the item is beyond what I was expecting. So when Zaful contacted me to review an item I was over the moon! I’ve been eyeing their brand and wanted to purchase some items but I was hesitant. As I was browsing on their site, this sweater caught my eyes. Ever since last year, I’ve been looking for a sweater with the knot in the back.

I decided to get the sweater (linked here) in white for a fresh, crisp look. It is one size fits all, I usually wear xs and it fit me as a baggy sweater which I like. It can also be off the shoulder! 

I would say this sweater would fit sizes small, medium and even large. I love the back detailing as it is unexpected and so cute! The sweater itself is soft and easy to wear. I decided to style it with leather shorts and booties.

This look is perfect for early fall when you’re out for lunch, brunch or even running errands on the weekend. In the next blog post I’ll share how to style it a completely different way! I am excited to order more things from Zaful and I’ll be sharing my finds with you guys!

 Have you ever shopped at Zaful? Comment below sharing your experience!

Affordable Blanket Scarves

Fall is here and despite the warmer temperatures in Toronto, I’m excited to get back into being cozy. The truth is spring and fall are my favourite seasons. My favourite piece to layer has to be a scarf. A scarf can keep you warm (and stylish) as you continue to wear your summer clothes (skirts, dresses, t-shirts, and shorts). It basically completes any outfit to give it the fall, cozy look! 

I especially love blanket scarves as they are cozy and can be worn so many different ways. This link shows you how you can style it more than one way.

This blanket scarf from jewelry bean is so soft and light weight, it feels like a feather. They have a large variety of scarves (linked here) with different styles. You can use my code “style” to save 20% off your purchase!

I also have a regular scarf from Jewelry Bean,  which I’ll show you how to style on the next post.

How do you like styling your blanket scarf? Comment below and let me know! Also, don’t forget to use my code for a discount 🙂

Bedroom Reveal

Only 10 months later and I am FINALLY done my bedroom! Well… I still need to change the light fixture to a chandelier but other than that, ALL  D O N E.. YASSSSS! I am so excited to share this as it has been a working progressing for so long (especially trying to find decorations for my shelves).  I have also included a DIY and you’ll see the biggest mistake I made! Basically everything you see has been bought from Homesense and Ikea.

My favourite part of my room has to be the shelf and the gallery wall.              

So, yes that a custom made sign! The eyelash poster is also custom made by the sweetest girl WrittenByLisa . She creates custom made signs, cards,  and anything else calliagraphy you can think of!

And here is the office manager, hard at work…heheh

Little secret: I keep my hair styling stuff in that cute little box so it looks clean and organized. I also spray painted my garbage bin that I picked up from Homesene! 

So if you didn’t guess it yet, the gold shelf was my DIY project. I found this link and followed exactly what they said. I just didn’t do the marble shelves. However, the biggest mistake that I did do which you can kind of see it in the photos, is that I sprayed the shelves in winter. Do N O T do that! It didn’t dry properly and the finish wasn’t as nice as I would have liked it to be. The best time would be spring, or fall or end of summer so it’s not too cold or too hot.

How cute is this card that I framed? The rabbit is actually made after me! One of my best friends creates hand-made cards and the cutest fashionable mousies. You can follow her work here.

This is also a special piece as it was made by a friend for me. I love the idea of a shadow box and she included all the things that represent me. Apple for being a teacher, I’m always a dreamer (hence the clouds and “follow your heart”). Money to represent luck, flowers to represent our friendship. The map shows how I love to travel and the three flowers in the middle represent my family (I’m an only child). I actually cried when I received that as a birthday gift. 

I picked up this coat hanger from Homesense and used it to hang my purses and hats!

I hope you enjoyed my bedroom reveal. I worked really hard to make it represent me (the grown up version haha). I also took change to represent a new chapter of my life of blogging and being a teacher.

Let me know in the comments below what your favourite part is!

Crown & Pride Crop Top

I recently became familiar with Crown and Pride. A Canadian clothing company who is all about the #BossBabes! They recently wrote an article about me for their “Blogger of the Week”. It was so beautifully written! I had tears in my eyes the entire time (linked here). 

I always love connecting with Canadian clothing companies, so I knew I had to get my hands on their products. I decided to go for their crop tops. They are currently revamping the label and will come out with body suits in September (SO EXCITED!). 

I love how their crop tops are edgy and even for a girly girl like me, I knew I could rock it! I decided to tie the side in a knot for a softer look. However throw on jeans and it can be edgy or feminine ( with a pretty little necklace)! 

I’ve linked them for you here and I’m so excited to see what their body suits will be like it!

Ruffle Romper

I’m always on the lookout for affordable online clothing companies especially because they often have unique stuff that you can’t find anywhere else. Shop mint has quickly become a favourite. I love how they have so many cute girly items that are different than most stores yet still affordable!

This little romper has all the things that I love; pretty pastel colour, ruffles and neck tie details!

I decided to go for the casual glam look by throwing on bow flip flops, statement earrings and a straw bag. However this romper can easily be dressed up with neutrals heels and pretty statement earrings.


I’ve linked my romper here, however there are so many cute items on their website that I suggest your also explore!

What’s your favourite online retail store? Comment below!

Pom Pom Hat

As I have mentioned a couple of times before, this year I really want to focus on accessorizing. I use the latest trends in my outfits through accessories instead of purchasing new clothing items.

I have shared my love for IlyMix before and now they have stocked their site with hats!!!

I am in love with ruffles, pom poms and anything girly for the spring/summer time and when I saw their hats I absolutely fell in love.

I love the pom pom details on this hat. It’s perfect for the beach. The hat also comes with a pull string, so no matter what your head size is, it will stay put!! How perfect is that?

The hat is also made from sturdy material so you know it will last you all season and then some. You can use my code “style” to get 20% off your purchase! (The hat is linked here)

Let me know what other accessories you are crushing on from ILY mix!

Bow Ring

If you have been following me for a little while now, you know I’m all about STYLE and AFFORDABILITY. With that said, I’m also all about glam and pretty things. Let’s just say if there was a ring to represent me it would be this:Can we talk about the bow details and how dainty it is? I am in love! I always get compliments whenever I wear it out. 

  

It’s also hard to believe that it is dipped in platinum, meaning it won’t tarnish and it will last you a long time. This is definitely an investment piece…pstt… and its only $175! Linked here

The ring is from a local Canadian company called Platnium Jewelry. They sell fine platinum jewelry and they are also affordable. 

these are some of the other items I love from them.

Aren’t they so luxury and beautiful? Perfect for a special occasion or if you’re like me and want something for everyday wear. You can use my code “StyleNotBrand” and save 10% on your purchase!

Do you wear luxury jewelry items on a daily basis or do you like to keep those items for special occasions? Let me know in the comments below!
