I’ve been living in chunky knit sweaters, jeans and sneakers the past while since it’s been so cold out and thought I should switch it up. For today’s outfit I still wanted to look trendy while walking through the snow, but also be warm. I decided to pair my over the knee boots with a wool coat and a faux fur vest. You can always have fashion and warmth right? (insert laughing crying face)

These boots from Stuart Weitzman are one of my favourite purchases this season and definitely kept me warm when the windchill hit -20. If you’re looking to purchase them they are true to size and fit like a glove! The suede is also so beautiful and Stuart Weitzman offers several colours to choose from. To finish off my look I kept my hair in loose waves since it was windy out.

What’s your go-to winter outfit? I am currently on the lookout for a wool coat in a lighter colour, maybe in nude or light grey.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you had a great weekend! xoxo

Faux Fur

Hi there! Happy Tuesday!

I’ve been so busy lately juggling set life and work life, yet somehow I have managed to keep my blog up to date as well. Not going to lie it’s been a stressful, hectic-fun past couple of weeks. I guess when life gets so busy you’re still able to find time to make it all work! 🙂

Today’s outfit post is my go-to when I still want to keep my look trendy yet laid-back. I also looove wearing black and mixing textures. I paired a faux fur vest with my waterfall jacket from BCBG (similar here). I added a turtleneck to stay warm and added my favourite pair of over the knee boots to finish off my look.

What are your go to outfits when you’re busy? Leave me a comment below. xo

How to Have Clear Skin

Some of the best tips have been learned over years of personal experience and from the advice of aestheticians. The biggest one I’ve personally stuck to was buying organic skin care products. Products that aren’t organic sometimes contain alcohol which then dries out your skin and makes it sensitive in the long run. That jumpstarts the aging process. I don’t know about you, but I want to look youthful when I turn 40. I have a long way to 40, but I always like to think ahead! 🙂
I truly believe that what you put in your body gets reflected in your hair and skin. Cutting out diary and minimizing your sugar intake will help to minimize breakouts and help keep your skin clear. Adding more greens to your system is also another great tip! If you eat more veggies, I promise you you will see a difference in your skin. Other than what you use topically don’t forget the main thing; drink lots of water, exercise daily and sleep! But if you’re anything like me, you also want to use the right products for your face to help enhance your skin to make it look vibrant and clear.
Skin care
Here are the products I swear by:
Micellar Cleanser: This trend actually started in France years ago and was recently picked up by the cult beauty world. I researched it last year and switched over from soapy cleansers to micellar and haven’t looked back. It’s soothing for sensitive skin and removes makeup while leaving your face refreshened. My breakouts have lessened since the switchover.
Honey: Yes! You read that right! I used this to wash my face after I’ve removed my makeup with the micellar cleanser. I like to make sure my skin is super clean. 🙂 Make sure to buy honey closest to it’s purest form; the rawer the better. The one I use can be found here.
Toner: Also by Neostrada. I use the Level 1 toner when I feel a breakout coming or twice a week on my chin.
Serum: My favourite is this one. I use it every night and have seen amazing results! This serum is packed with fruit stem cells infused with Vitamin C to help enhance the skin’s tone and texture. I use this before my moisturizer.
Moisturizer: I love this one and this one. I rotate them and use it morning and night.
Exfoliating scrub: You can find my favourite one here. I use it once a week.
There you have it! I don’t have perfect skin, but with all of these tips, it’s helped maintain my skin to look clearer and refreshed. If you want to have clear skin, make your skin your priority. It’s your best accessory so take care of it as much as possible.
