Wrapped Up in Blue + I've Been Buying ALL the Bags

I didn't used to understand wrap coats - why would you want a coat that doesn't button up the front? But after wearing this Lydia Wool-Blend coat from GUESS - it all makes sense!

Coat: c/o GUESS / Camisole: H&M / Jeans: H&M / Bag: ALDO / Shoes: c/o Nine West

This type of coat is perfect for errand days, when you're constantly switching between indoors and outdoors. When I step out of the car, I wrap the coat around me - and I'm immediately blanketed in warmth. And once I'm indoors - I just let the coat unwrap and fall open. I don't overheat - and I don't have to keep fastening and unfastening my coat - it's very handy!

How We Take Outfit Photos for the Blog (Equipment Information)

As mentioned in an earlier post - my husband and I work together to produce the photography for this blog. I take all of the product shots, and he takes most of my outfit shots (I set up and frame the photo, he takes the pictures). Creating appealing imagery is an important part of fashion blogging, so I'm always looking for ways to increase the quality of my pictures.

The Best Photography Gear for taking fashion blogger outfit photos

Having the right photography gear is essential for high quality shots, so in today's post, I'm sharing the exact photography equipment I use - along with a list of items I want to eventually upgrade to. This information will especially be useful if you want to take outfit photos for your fashion blog and don't know where to start!

Pure and Simple

My skin has been a hot mess after all my travels in August. Two transatlantic trips coupled with outside food and changing environments left me dealing with painful acne on my cheeks. I also developed red patches of dermatitis on either side of my nose - not a cute look! I could temporarily cover most of by layering primer, foundation and setting spray (like in the outfit pic below). But underneath it all, my face felt constantly painful and sore.


So when I was invited to the Grand Opening of Pure + Simple Mississauga to experience their signature facial - I eagerly accepted. It came at just the right time, since I needed some expert insight to get my skin back on track. Read on to find out what I learned.

Buying ALL of the Pink Dresses

My wardrobe has been expanding at an alarming rate - and I'm currently in the middle of a serious decluttering/donating session to accommodate my new purchases. My motto seems to be...if it's pink and it's a dress, I'm buying it!

Pink Rose Maxi Dress Shein
Dress: Shein

This pink rose maxi dress is an amazing Shein find for $34. While I get gifted clothing from Chinese-clothing companies like Shein/Romwe/Chicwish, I also purchase clothes from them myself (like this dress). There are definitely some treasures to be found - in fact, due to multiple reader requests, I'll be sharing a post with my top tips on buying clothes from these online sites soon!
