What Makes Today Good!

Have you ever stop to think about what makes a day good. What little things matter? I complied a list of 10 things that makes today good. Only the small things.

1.) Getting an Advance Green Light

I live for these. I stay back at a red light just to get them. It’s even better when I am the only car.

2.) Waking Up Without An Alarm

I love waking up before my alarm and NOT being tired.

3.) When You Can Guess The End of a Movie

I don’t know about you but I feel so smart when I can guess what will happen.

4.) When Things Ring in on Sale

I love when I pay less than I expected, who doesn’t?

5.) When Someone Holds the Door for You

I am not talking about your friend, although that is nice too. I am talking about a stranger waiting for you and holds the door.

6.) Having More Time Than You Thought

When you are getting ready to go out and you realize you have 10 more minutes. It’s great.

7.) Being Given a Compliment

GIVE THEM! It can really make someones day.

8.) Waking Up to a Text Message

It’s nice to know people are thinking about you.

9.) Having Perfect Hair

Not having to get ready…best things ever.

10.) Saying “I Love You”

Making someone elses day can make your own.

What small things do you do that make your day?

Thinner in 10 Seconds!

Let’s talk Bronzer.

I am not a huge fan, I’ve never been able to apply it correctly. But people constantly talk about how much they love it.

I’ve also seem marketing ads that claim it will make you look thinner, and as a women, I can buy into that.

I thought I would share with you some Bronzer I have tried and how to apply to look Thinner in 10 Seconds.

It’s hard to tell but this is the Rimmel London Natural Bronzer in Sun Dance.

Now, this product may have been the reason I hate bronzing. It has a very orange-y pay off and barley any pay off at all. Not to mention, the amount of glitter.

If you can make this product work for you, heres to ya. But, I just cannot get this to look good on me.

Next, we have e.l.f Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder. 

This bronzer is very pigmented, like with many e.l.f products. I, however, did not have the softest hand when first using it and had to go back many time to fix it. I ended up not using it for a while and swearing off bronzing for a while. I have recently come back to it and need to warn anyone wanting to try this that A) it is a dark bronzer and B) very pigmented.

For the price it is very good.

I recently purchased NYC Sun 2 Sun Bronzing Powder in Bronze Gold

I really love this. Despite the bad packaging (same as Rimmels), I really like that there are two products in here. You can use it three ways, use either colour or mix them together. I also like that you have a matte and a shimmer so again you can mix if you want shimmer or not.

As you can see I have not puchaces a high end bronzer, this is because I don’t see the need for one until I become comfertable with brozning.

How to Look Thinner!

I use the 3 rule.

1.) the temple

2.) the cheek bone

3.) the jawline

These are the three areas that you want to Bronze to make yourself look thinner. I apply in a circular motion to not have any harsh lines that make bronzer look fake or overused.

You can also add a little bronzer to the nose and chin for a glowing look.

Anywhere the sun will naturally hit your face.

Hope this helps.

Hot Pink Nails!

It’s starting to get hot out so I couldn’t resist painting my nails the brightest colour I could find.

The Camera does not do it justice (Does it ever?)

This beautiful colour by China Glaze is a matte finish. I put a clear top coat over it to make it glosy.

The colour is Pool Party, what a perfect name.

If you are looking for NEON nail polish I love this one. I was super excited to pull it out after Winter.

What are your favourite nail polishes for Spring/Summer?

Spring/Summer Trends of 2013

Hello Beautiful Ladies,

I live in Canada, so the fact that Spring and Summer might actually be arriving is so exciting. I thought I would share some of my thoughts on the upcoming trends.

Strips

Not just any kinds of strips, but sexy strips. I’ve always been a fan of stripes but they must be worn properly or else they can make you look bigger than you want to. If you are larger try wearing vertical stripes rather than horizontal, or wear stripes that accentuate your curves. For example, the dress below, the strips face in towards the waist making you look smaller.

Sheen

I’m not sure how I feel about the trend. I feel as though it could work or it could look awful. It might be one of those things we look back on and go “what was I thinking.” I do however feel that it can be played down and add some dimension to an outfit. I really like the outfit below because this shirt from American Eagle isn’t too crazy, but it has a cool effect.

Graphic Prints

This trend is bold. It might not work for everyone. I believe that it all depends on how you play it up. You can go all out and have a dress that is a full print. However, if that is too much for you just wear a shirt with the print and play it down with a solid colour short and cardigan. I love this look from Forever 21.

Whites

I love whites, expceailly as a lace dress. I just think it looks so innocent and cute. I also love that you can really play up your accessories when you have a simple colour. Maybe add a statement necklace. This dress from PacSun is exactly the kind of white I love to wear. Also, I think a great pair of white shorts or capires would look create with a graphic print shirt.

Fluorescent

I am all in when it comes to bright colours. I think summer is the perfect time to wear the brightest thing in your closet and that is why I am so excited about this trend. Again, this is one that some people might be afraid of, but if you do it right you will find that you can work this trend as well. I love this high-low (another trend) dress from Forever 21.

60s Style

We all know how styles come and go, and them come back again. Well this summer is no exception. The 60’s and 90’s are coming back. I however am more fond of the 60’s style. We have already seen this trend coming back with the Peter Pan collar (ask any of my friends, I am addicted.) Forever 21 and H&M have some great choices for this trend, but I found like lovely number at TopShop.

There are many trends that are going to be happening the summer, as reoccurring as well. I find that different people like different trends, but  I don’t want you to be afraid to try something. If you think something in fun, try it.

If you don’t want to spend too much money on a trend, hit up a thrift shop and see what you can find there.

Just have fun with your fashion.

Let me know in the comments below some trends you are looking forward to.
