FLORAL PRINT SKIRT
Welcome to Providenciales, Turks & Caicos Islands!! I have been in paradise for a week now and the island life is always hard to beat -The beautiful beaches all around you, the peaceful surroundings, the friendly and very welcoming locals, the laid back attitude and the weather here is beyond phenomenal. It gets hot of course in the early afternoons, but just as the sun starts to set which is a sight to see, then it cools down just a little bit. I have been spending pretty much every single day on the beach. Can you blame me when the closest beach to our home is a walking distance? You can read more about my escapades in Turks & Caicos Islands on Maagnifik.

This is my very first outfit post from Turks and this skirt couldn't have been in my hands at a better time. It is all about finding inspiration from what is around me and something about the Islands or the tropics in general is the ever so present coconut trees, gorgeous plants and pretty flowers around. To me, i think a floral print skirt is never a miss. It could be mini, midi or maxi, it will always be sweet and easy to look dressy in them without even trying. Pink is an adorable color and pairing this pink floral skirt with a pink satin top just adds more of my love for pink, but without over powering the floral skirt. I think satin could be another great alternative to sequins or sparkly holiday outfits if you prefer something softer or more subtle.

BOOK REVIEW: DISNEY STEP-BY-STEP HAIRSTYLES WITH IMAGES

BOOK REVIEW: DISNEY STEP-BY-STEP HAIRSTYLES WITH IMAGES
Why don't we talk hair today? I partnered with Disney to share a review of two of their most sought after books of the era - "40 Amazing Disney Princess Hairstyles" and "Frozen Hairstyles Inspired By Elsa And Anna"

I grew up on so many of the all time Disney princess classics such as, Cinderella. I read the books and watched all beautiful movies. I always dreamed of being one of course. Who didn't?  Now that i have a daughter who happens to be at that age now where Disney princess stories and movies like, "Frozen" which is her current favorite, i knew i had to check out these books by all means. This is the first Disney book to reveal the secrets behind Elsa and Anna's  different looks.
BOOK REVIEW: DISNEY STEP-BY-STEP HAIRSTYLES WITH IMAGES

Book #1: 40 Amazing Princess Hairstyles With Step By Step Images
This book was beyond my expectations especially at a reasonable price of $12.95. I started to flip through each page amazed at how gorgeous these hairstyles really are. Some of the  forty princess hairdos featured include, Cinderella’s beautiful bun to Jasmine’s ponytail, and from Rapunzel’s endless curls to Pocahontas’ hidden braid. I was so amazed at the step by step instructions which i find to be so easy to follow, especially when images of each step is included.
I really can't wait to start trying some of these hairstyles on my daughter's hair asap. By the way, she is in love with the books already.

PROS:
1. We all know not all hair types are the same but these book features the best hairstyles for every hair type.
2. The price is affordable considering all the 40 awesome step by step hairstyles featured.
3. This is a book that will last forever. The hairstyles are timeless and the steps are so easy to follow.
4. The hairstyles will absolutely look great on the moms just as they look on their daughters too.
5. So Perfect for wedding hairstyles and date nights too!!

CONS:
1. All Disney princesses obviously seem to have very long hair and this book features hairdos for mostly long hair. So if your hair or daughter's hair is still growing or too short, you may have to wait. Hmm...

Book #2: Frozen Hairstyles Inspired By Elsa and Anna
The claim is, this book  reveals each of the twenty-eight hairdos created on a real child and meticulously photographed in full color to make even the most complicated coiffure easy to achieve.

I agree! You really don't have to be a pro to follow the instructions and i would say, practice makes perfect. If you don't get it the first time, no worries. The steps are there to follow anytime and i find them to be well detailed and helpful to follow.

AZAZIE BRIDESMAID DRESS WITH PERFECT FIT
Weddings have come a long way. When i say a long way i mean, gone are the days when it was so by the book and so uptight. Weddings have become fun and natural. Certain traditions do remain, such as, respecting the brides wishes. Afterall, it is her day. Some of those wishes do include wearing what she picks out for the bridemaids. We all know how for some tragic reason, the bridemaids always wore the worst dresses at the wedding. Now what happens after the wedding stays at the wedding, right? Many bridemaids have burned and buried there dresses with the hope of burying the humiliation of wearing it again. Pretty intense, right?

Thank goodness times have changed and being a bridemaids  isn't the most dreadful job anymore. There are options availabe today where you can buy very pretty, ready made or customized to fit dresses for any such occasion and beyond. I decided to work with Azazie on this project by showing you how well their online tool works in terms of fitting. I also thought it would be important to show you how  their pretty bridemaid dresses can be worn even after a wedding to such places like, holiday parties and  the office during fall and of course during this winter season too.

Their bridesmaid dresses come in as many as thirty-six pretty colors and stunning styles. I  picked this Azazie Alexis Dress in Daffodil because it is so soft, sweet, very princessy and falls so gacefully on you. Love the empire waist, the bow and pleats in the bodice area too. Most of all, it fits so perfectly well -That is always very important. I am wearing a size 2 and that's because i generally wear a small size. If i get to attend a beach wedding or holiday party while i am here, this will be a lovely dress to wear for it. Don't you think?

While they are still fairly new, you can also find AZAZIE on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Google+

CANDY STRIPED TURTLE NECK SWEATER
So i am sure some of you may have noticed how slow i have been to posting lately, responding to emails, comments, phone calls and texts. Do forgive me. Well, i left Toronto a few days ago, but it isn't permanent. I will be hanging out on an island for a little bit. I know many of you have followed my travel adventures in the past, but i have decided to properly document it this time around. I noticed  a lot of times when we are about to make a new move, i always try to find out more about the place, but not very often do i get the information i need. So any way, i launched my travel blog, Maagnifik today. It will be all about my life on an Island and hopefully even many more travels in future. This way, it doesn't take away from my fashion blog. Fashion blogging is a full time job man :). So yeah, I will be posting here and there regularly while catching up with your everyone. Well if you don't find me in one, I'll be in the other, hahaha.

Meanwhile, this outfit was shot during my last days in Toronto and i believe i still have a couple more others to share. I was supposed to wear this candy striped turtleneck sweater to an event by Holt Renfrew & Manitobah Mukluks’ Storyboot School Live! Manitobah Mukluks is an Aboriginal-owned footwear company and the event was for us to join likes of Rosary Spence for an intimate bead work demonstration. This project aims to revive the traditional arts by creating partnership with elders and artisans. Long story short, unfortunately for me, i couldn't make it. Hopefully, the next one.

While i do love my turtle necks and thigh high boots, i will not be missing the sub zero weather :)).  CANDY STRIPED TURTLE NECK SWEATER

BLACK FRIDAY INSPIRED MY OUTFIT FEATURING BEARPAW JOHANNA WINTER BOOTS
On Black Friday, i did something i have never done before, but first of all i need to clarify something.

So this is the thing, i decided to go to the mall on a Black Friday for the first time ever, eeek! Something i never did even while living in the United States for many years, but i did for the first time ever in Toronto. Although, it isn't as big of deal here as it is in the States, it was still very busy. This wasn't exactly what i wore to the stores on Black Friday, but that experience sure inspired this look. I am not sure there is really a perfect outfit for holiday shopping, but i know i would rather be comfortable from hat to shoes for the endless lines and the over crowded stores at this time of the year. Light layering definitely works for me because in a only a matter of time it starts to warm up very fast in there. Warm and comfortable shoes are will make my day any day. I just don't think i can do those long lines anymore! I would rather shop after midnight when the world is alseep.

Who to feel sorry for? Is it the customers who have to wait in line? I guess if you really need it, then you have to be patient, right? What about the cashiers that are so overwhelmed by it all? Customer service is a tough job i can tell you that, please lets's all show some love to everyone.Okay, try :).
