Perfect Animal Print Maxi Dress
As i slowly transition the outfits in my closet to Fall friendly pieces in these last days of summer, i often find myself hanging onto those timeless pieces that could be worn for many days to come. Even if the layers come on, a statement piece like this animal print maxi dress will take me right through Fall while still looking stylish. It shows a lot of character, style and some glam. I styled it with a light sweater to keep the chills away, especially in the evenings but i can't deny the sweater appears to be very slimming and chic.

Perfect Metallic Gold Pants
Talk about rocker chic meets boho chic.

If you have a metallic gold skirt or pair of metallic gold pants, stop whatever it is you are doing right now and pair it with the simplest top in your closet then see the magic happen. For the love of me, i searched for a perfect shade of caramel maxi skirt to pair with this light and simple gypsy top for a bohemian look but couldn't find one. Then i spotted this metallic gold pants in H&M and everything changed. I knew the top needed to be styled with a bottom that will bring the top to life and this pair of metallic gold pants couldn't have been a better choice. The shine, the fit, the cut, the texture- Perfection! It immediately lightens up the top that could have otherwise been a bit too simple. May i just apologize in advance because you will be seeing this pair of  pants very soon again. The pants are just so rocker chic i can't wait to show you a couple of other ways  i get to style it, especially as we approach Fall.

Hope you all had a great weekend.

Perfect Women's Tennis Outfit By Divissima
I know what you are thinking, and no, it's not. But i know Serena Williams can't top this. Oooh... ;).

I think we sometimes forget dating isn't always about bonding over who's got the best sushi wrap, how my dessert looks better than yours or deciding over red wine or white wine. When i first started dating, i always thought it was so nerve racking and so by the book. It always felt like an interview and you are hardly really your real self the whole time. Come on let's be honest. If the date is going too well, the excessive giggling sets in and if it is not, you feel like choking on some bread. Soon i realized it was best to let things happen naturally before heading straight to a date, date. You know, get to know each other better on a more relaxed level where it is easy to just be you and let your guards down. With no pressure, just fun things that bring out the best in both of you...or worst?

I think a little competitive game can get all the butterflies and sparks rolling without having to worry about spilling anything. I will know that. I played sports a lot growing up and loved it. Part of dating is hoping to share some common interest with your potential love interest, right? Well, a cute tennis outfit is all you have to worry about at least for this court date.

This piece from Divissima that was made to order is such a cutie. The sequins on the top and the color is really what got my attention. The fabric feels smooth on the skin and comfortably stretchy to wear. Although,  i won't recommend playing in heels and necklace but they are great styling pieces. This tennis outfit is flattering without looking like you are trying, but let's not forget to wear  a pair of shorts underneath that short little skirt if you want a keeper.

Janet Jackson: My Skinspiration with HSN
Janet Jackson has the voice, the moves and the skin of a goddess. She is one of my biggest skinspirations...and it's not because she is my sister from another mother. Okay, fine you got me, she is not my sister, but you can't deny her skin is flawless with an exceptional glow to it. It is hard to say she wears a barely there makeup, but instead keeps it toned down by wearing shades close to her skin tone. Therefore, not taking away from her natural beauty, but instead it enhances it. So i have got to ask? How do i achieve that?

When the lovely folks at HSN (Home Shopping Network) asked me to share who inspires me as a beauty icon, i knew this would be an awesome topic many can relate to. It is funny no one has ever asked my that until now and i am happy to share.

I often notice a dullness in my skin and an uneven skin tone during a change in weather, lack of sleep, or not eating healthily. Sometimes all of the above. This summer, for instance, after moving back to the city from the snowy mountains, i was so busy with settling in, my skin started to suffer. It suffered so much, i got called out on it by a beautician. Finally, i realized it was time to get back that Janet Jackson kind of glow on my skin and also even out my skin tone. So i got a skin cream by Clearessence that evens skin tones which of course i was already familiar with. In addition to that, what did i do differently this time? Well, with the help of my Clearessence facial wash, including more vegetables such as, collard greens in my diet, taking my vitamin supplements daily and indulging in some herbal tea- "Triple Leaf Tea Detox" (Cleansing & Revitalizing), i saw a change in my skin in no time.

Makeup Details: Bronze eyeshadow by Essence // Applied two different mascaras- Arbonne It's A Long Story Mascara & Essence 24hr Volume Mascara "Stays No Matter What" to create an even longer eye lash effect. Lipstick by Kate Moss for Rimmel.

At the end of the day, i found out the best beauty routine anyone can possibly ever have that won't cost a thing, is smiling. We all know Ms Jackson has that figured out already.  Her smile lights up her face and an entire stage.

Little White Dress
How about we dress down the little white dress for a change?

First of all let me just address the obvious- My little white dress is a sporty little white piece that is fit and flare. Maybe not as flattering as i would have liked it to beeeee, but it fits. We all know a white dress is a classic piece that works well for any occasion and i find it to be one of the easiest outfits that can be styled by anyone, any day. The only thing is, this time, i am taking it down a notch- Street style! :)). It may not yet be official, but the chilly days are are slowly sneaking up on us here in Toronto which means we may have to start layering just a teeny tiny bit. After getting tired of staring at this dress in my closet because the need to wear it for any occasion hadn't presented itself, i decided with the help of my floral print baseball hat and a sleeveless denim jacket, i was able to tone down the dress enough for a laid back day around the city.

BEARPAW Shoes
I am stepping into the new season with a little more confidence and extra comfort.

When you find shoes that get you as soon as you slip your feet in them then you know it will be a good day. That was how i felt wearing this pair of shoes by BEARPAW. This pair was on the list of my top five favorites but i wasn't sure what pair they would send me. Oh my gosh, i was really and truly flabbergasted by how soft and comfortable the inner soles are that i couldn't resist the leg motion for the shoot. Hahaha. If am going to do flats, then i might as well be comfortable in them, right? A really cool advantage to the shoes is, with the opening on the sides, they are great for when it warms up, and even when there is a slight drop in temperature, my toes stay covered. Although, it is a hard color to maintain but it is a really good fit for any outfit.
