Your Inner Snowman

29 Jan

Good Afternoon Glamourites!

Today I’m in a wintery mood as the snowflakes are all I can see when I look out my window! Also I seem to be obsessed lately with everything white, according to my pinterest board. I find during these long winter months I want to create my own light and by wearing a pop of colour, or in this case white, your day immediately feels not so gloomy. I know some may say that wearing white anytime after Labour day is basically a crime but I say go for it! Life is too short to not wear what makes you feel your best. I hope everyone is keeping warm and that you will all embrace your inner snowman this week!

The use of mixing textures with this outfit is on point; adore the knit and jacket blazer combo! snowman

The perfect outfit to be comfy but still feel acceptable to go outside ~ try mixing shades of white for top and bottoms. snowman2

Here’s my beauty inspiration for white: line your eyes with a white liner or shadow to make them pop!

Add one item that’s not white to make the rest of your outfit really stand out ~black and white, forever a classic.

I’m obsessed with this nail colour, it looks like snowflakes on your hand!

Try mixing in white with a print or pattern for more geometric appeal.

Classic like the 1920’s

28 May

Hello Glamorites!

Lately I have been seeing a lot of vintage influence in fashion, parties and even movies. When I saw the new Great Gatsby movie in theatres this week I was loving the vintage and classical feel in every aspect from the clothing to how they spoke. I loved the attention to detail that the movie captured; it captured the essence of the Roaring 20’s and I loved how they took and pride in what they wore, how they looked, and their attitude  about how they were presented. Enough about the past for now….I found this gorgeous picture and adored the entire look, so I created a how-to!

Hope you enjoy it & maybe even try a little vintage style today too!

MASCARA – Long & Lushes Lashes

Here are 3 simple tricks I have learned to properly apply mascara and for better results!

Step 1: Wiggle the mascara wand a little from side to side at the base of the lashes, it is the mascara placed at the roots of the lashes that give the illusion of length.

Step 2: Pull the wand up and then through the lashes while continuing to wiggle as you go, the wiggle is key as it helps separate the lashes.

Step 3: The final little trick is to close your eye and put the mascara on the top of the lashes and pull through as to remove any clumps.
