THE PINK BOMBER

BOMBER | SWEATER | SKIRT | BOOTS | CHOKER | RINGS (1,2)

I’ve always believed that confidence comes from within, but it never hurts to have the right outfit! There’s just something about wearing that special piece that can really elevate your mood for that perfect outfit of the day! Personally my favourite looks are when I can marry two completely different styles into one to achieve that effortless, chic vibe. These can be pieces that are a little understated, something a little more fashion forward or sophisticated. Mix that with a piece that is a little unexpected and you have that perfect #ootd! Today’s look is all about that.

While I normally keep my style polished, there are days when I want to put on something with a tad more drama. It can be a piece with an interesting shape, fabric or cute detailing. So naturally when I was online shopping, I spotted this number from Dynamite and couldn’t resist! I love the tie up details in the front, not to mention the pretty shade of pink; perfect for spring! Bombers are becoming such a universal piece of clothing and this one is the perfect combination of sweet and sexy. It features just the right amount to make a bold statement without overpowering your whole outfit. Depending on how I style my look for the day, I can wear this jacket pretty much anywhere!
What do you think about pink bombers for spring? Do share. xoxo

BEACH SIDE WITH DANIEL WELLINGTON

BUTTON DOWN | BIKINI | AVIATORS | SANDALSDW WATCH | DW CUFF

Punta Cana is a dream! It’s full of pretty backdrops, bright clear blue water and some of the most amazing food! Aside from it being my all time favourite beach destination, we fell in love with this resort the moment we visited two years ago! With their private cabanas, super comfy beach beds and, of course, amazing food, naturally we had to visit again. 🙂
As their beach was secluded on the royal service side, we were able to shoot one of my more relaxed looks with ease. I wore this classic button down over my bikini on one of the first days of our trip (shown above). I love keeping my vacation style polished and a classic button down is a must-have when it comes to lounging at the beach. It serves as such a nice cover-up and also works well when pairing it with some cute denim cut-offs! So easy breezy.
Of course, the ultimate beach accessory that I absolutely could not forget to pack, was this timepiece from Daniel Wellington. The classic black cornwall watch was the perfect touch as it is versatile and also has an effortless elegance that tied so perfectly with my chic vacation style. Now I’ll always carry this everywhere I go!
Enter SWEETASFICTION for 15% off your very own #DanielWellington timepiece. It’s such a great piece to have or perfect to gift! Let me know which one you decide on. xoxo

SMASHBOX: LIGHT IT UP 3 PALETTE SET 

SMASHBOX ‘LIGHT IT UP’  3 PALETTE SET | SMASHBOX EYESHADOW PRIMER

If you read SAF on the regular, you probably know how much I love make-up! It can be a bit of an obsession of mine, as I can spend hours trying out new products with different looks, seeing what works with my everyday routine and then tweaking as I go. Yet, as much as I gravitate towards natural and fresh looks, I love to experiment with make-up that is a bit more daring and bold. For example, in winter I love wearing a smoky eye with neutral lips to holiday events and will do the polar opposite during the day, focusing on contouring my face while keeping my make-up light and fresh.

These holiday palettes exclusive to Smashbox are perfect for both! They were created in collaboration with Meryl Pataky, bringing three kits containing colours that were specifically selected from the photo studio pros in LA. They offer a variety of shades and come packaged in a gorgeous, sleek box that requires pretty much no wrapping if you’re thinking of gifting this for the holiday season.

First in the kit is the Contour palette, which lets you bronze, highlight and define features. I found these colours blended effortlessly and gave me a great matte finish, lasting throughout the day without fading. Personally I wish this specific one came in a bigger size with a warmer bronze option, but all in all, this is definitely a great palette to own.

Next up is the Be Legendary lipstick palette, which gives you a variety of comfortable mattes that are high in pigmentation. I found these lip colours to be a bit sheer on me, which I still loved. I think these are perfect for everyday, especially since they are moisturizing and great on the go.

The Photo Op eye shadow palette is the last in the set, which gives eyes a rich, blend-able colour. I did find there was a tiny bit of fall out when using these, but loved the colour selection. They are very pigmented and easy to blend, especially once applied over a primer (love this one).

Overall, I loved the quality of all three in this set and would definitely think this would make a great stocking stuffer for someone who loves to travel or for someone that carries their make-up on the go. You can purchase this set here (just went on sale!)

What about you guys, have you tried any of these palettes from Smashbox? Let me know below. xoxo

Also be sure to follow me on instagram as I will be giving one lucky winner a chance to win a palette kit of their own over the weekend!
