HOW I STYLENFALL/WINTER SWEATERS...AND SOCKS: MAKING IT FUN
Sometimes i wonder why some fall/winter socks are made to look so pretty only to have them hidden underneath our pants or in our boots. I remember elementary and high school days you wanted to have those cute little white ankle length socks with bows so you could show them off because it was cool at the time. Although, lately, it has become so trendy to wear your knee-high socks pulled up strategically in such a way that they show slightly above the boots or booties. I think its is really cool.

Although, i have styled my pair of mid-calf socks here with pumps which i personally like a lot, but i get that it may be weird to others. I randomly found this colorful sweater and somehow stumbled into this pair of socks too, so i just knew i had to style them together. The sweater and socks do have some similarities in design (the stripes), but not the same exact colors (which was what i would have preferred). Regardless, i wanted to create a look that will best show off my almost matching sweater and socks styled together without having to hide most or all of it.

I actually wore this whole outfit to  meet up with a potential collaborator and friend the other day when the weather was still more like fall than winter, but with a different corduroy skirt.

What is The "Getting To Know You" Series about, you ask?

The “Getting to Know You” series will bring together a network of 30 career women and promises to fill their mind, body & souls; incorporating food, engaging activities and learning - from a featured interactive speaker. The celebratory, educational event will influence, motivate and inspire women’s success; both professionally and personally.  Getting to Know You will focus on various topics in women’s personal development, business, health, wellness and philanthropy.

That just sounds like fun!! I don't think there is anything more refreshing than women coming together to support and inspire each other.

Classic Sheffield Lady Watch in Rose Gold by Daniel Wellington
Timeless Style with Classic Sheffield Lady Watch (in Rose Gold) By Daniel Wellington Watches
When a watch is telling you it is timeless, you know it only means one thing- Class.

You are probably wondering what the hype is all about with the Daniel Wellington watches already. Oh, I can definitely tell you, but only if you promise not to blame me for making your holiday shopping the easiest and most drama free yet.

I haven't worn a watch in years for no reason. Especially coming from someone who buys them as gifts for the lovely people in her life. I guess i am a little bit selfless like that. I would always say, i will get one as a gift to myself....later. Later became years. As fate would have it, i got a chance to work with Daniel Wellington Watches, and boy, was i so excited to style the Classic Sheffield Lady Watch. First of all, who says no to a top Swedish watch brand with a great story and lots of style? Not me and i hope you don't because the Daniel Wellington Watches are known to add quality, fun and style to your life. The Classic Sheffield Lady Watch in Rose Gold quickly found its way into my heart for its minimalistic and timeless look. It sure gives a classy, clean, polished and effortlessly stylish look to any outfit. Since i received it a few days ago, i have been wearing it everywhere, and that includes a holiday party, fashion events and more. It is light weight, the leather strap which is interchangeable is just wide enough and fits firmly on the wrist. Even William can't stop saying how really nice the wrist watch is every time he sees me wearing it.

You all  know how much i believe in pieces that can be worn for as long as time would have it. So for a fashion pop-up event i attended two days ago, I styled the watch with very simple, but classic pieces- A black and white striped top and a plain black skirt.

In Best Of Loose Foundations: 30 Shades Of Urban Minerals But I'll Try 4
The beauty of thinking you may have found "The One" only to find out later there are many others just as perfect or even better, sure does exist. Yes, i am talking makeup right now, what were you thinking?

I found out about Urban Minerals, a toronto based makeup brand, and as you all know i love supporting our local brands a lot. Well, i was definitely curious about the 30-color palette for every race, colour and ethnicity.  

What it is supposed to do? Well, this line of natural loose mineral foundation is made from herbal and botanical ingredients, aiming to restore and sooth imperfections from harmful chemicals caused by toxic mainstream brands. The custom and diverse collection promises to deliver the right shade for your skin tone, reflecting the true diverse multiculturalism represented on the streets of Toronto. Haa, i do know about the huge and very beautiful diversity here in Toronto. #loveit

Impressive concept, right? Anyway, i had four samples of the Urban Minerals Loose Foundation sent to me to try and boy, i was blown away! Let me first say this, the founder Sarah Devika, who blogs on the same website had me at, "When i first went to university after high school, i had no idea what to do." You really need to read the rest of her story here and i assure you, many of you can relate just like i did. After flipping through her website for a while, i knew i had to share. Thank goodness, her products are just as amazing as she sounds.

I very rarely wear foundation because i am such a powder kinda girl. So i was stoked to find out these were loose foundations. Out of the four: a. Radiate b. Heat Island c. Keeping It Classy d. Fresh To Death that was sent to me, based on my skin tone, i would say, "Keeping It Classy" was my favorite and i immediately started wearing it in some of outfit shoots. Some of you may not have noticed the difference in some of my photos, but i did. The foundation has a way of blending so flawlessly into your skin. It makes my face light up, it is super smooth, rich and of great quality.

Wearing "Radiate" loose foundation alone (no powder) outdoors on a typical Fall day- Grey gloomy weather kind of day (No sunlight at all).

Since "Fresh To Death" was too too light for my skin tone, i thought i might try it on as an eye shadow. Ssssh!

I love makeup and after so many years of trying out so many brands out there, i have learned with time, it is important to always stick with wearing what is right for my skin and of course suits my color tone better.  Let's face it, clothes and shoes i may return or exchange, but i can't do that with my skin. So why don't we start this coming New Year right with some flawless  looks. I have tried very many, but i can confidently tell you this loose foundations are one of the bests i have ever tried.
