Casual Friday

Happy Saturday everyone! The weather is finally getting warmer and I could not be any happier that winter is finally over! As I transition to my spring wardrobe, here's a little preview of what a casual Friday at work looks like for me. 

Typically I would usually wear jeans and sneakers because, let's be honest nothing is comfier than that. But lately, I have been so obsessed with the shoes I got from the DESIGNER SHOE SALE recently. They are so soft and so comfy to wear, even though they are heels. At this point, I am so used to wearing heels, I could wear them everyday and not feel a thing. 

I wore them with the high rise destructed girlfriend jeans that I got from the GAP last year. These jeans are probably one of my favourite comfiest pair of jeans I own. I finished the look with the fuzzy, cozy asymmetrical sweater I bought from the Calvin Klein outlet store recently.

Pop Of Summer

Welcome back everyone! Winter has been a hell of a long ride in Canada. Thankfully, it looks like we're going to be seeing some 2 digit weather starting this week. Yay! Finally some spring weather, right? 

I visited The Allan Gardens: a location that makes you get the tingles for summer throughout the entire year. It was my first time visiting the place and I fell in love with it. It is the perfect place to lift your spirits and make you feel happier. 

This last minute outfit is probably one of my favourites to wear. A complete black outfit, nothing can go wrong with that! I love the detailing of the white lining on the laced shirt from ZARA and the rest of my outfit is pretty much a basic black pair of jogger pants and black boots. I accessorized this outfit with simple jewelry: black beaded bracelets and my PANDORA bracelet and some silver rings to complete the look.

Beauty: 3 Double Duty Makeup Products

Makeup is something that I am very passionate about. At this point, I own so much makeup and I know that, but it's still never enough because I find myself in a Sephora or a Mac store whenever I am at the mall. 

Over the little time that I have been wearing makeup, I have learned a few tips and tricks and I wanted to share some, and hopefully it will be helpful to you.

Some makeup products could be used for other purposes than what they are made for. 

1. Lipstick as Blush
A soft pink/nude pink colour lipstick would do the trick. Apply 2 small dots on the cheekbones and by using your ring finger, blend in small circular motion until no streak of lipstick is seen. 

2. Concealer as Eye Shadow Primer
This is something that I do on a daily basis because let's face it, eye shadow primer are a total rip off (for the price that it is and the amount that you get). A concealer does a decent job at keeping the eye shadow in place for a long amount of time. 
Now... don't get me wrong, I do own an eye shadow primer, I just keep it for special occasions (weddings, parties, etc), just so I am sure that my eye makeup will stay in place no matter what. But so far, I have had no issues with the concealer. It's just a matter of feeling comfortable in certain situations. 

3. Bronzer as Eye shadow
Again, something I do everyday. I am still learning on the whole eye shadow process, so an easy eye shadow makeup is usually my go-to. I just pop some clear light brown eye shadow all over my eye lid and blend my bronzer in the crease, and that's it.
