New Favourite Beauty Look

I'm completely in love with this beauty shot from the Jean Paul Gaultier spring couture show. The red lip, the winged eyeliner, everything. Even the hair. If my makeup could magically look like this everyday, that would be perfect!

Outfit backlog

I haven't been posting my outfits on the blog for a bit, but they've been going on chictopia. Here's what I wore today, yesterday and one day last week.

A work outfit I wore some day last week:

Blazer: Espirit
Top: H&M
Pants: Tallulah
Shoes: Naturalizer

Yesterday for brunch and trip to the best toy store is Calgary:

Dress: Yumi
Jacket: Tex by Max Azria
Tights: Joe Fresh Style
Shoes: Keds
Purse: gift

Today for a trip to Cross Iron Mills:

Dress: Sisley
Jacket: Tex by Max Azria (same as above)
Tights: H&M
Socks: unknown
Boots: Shelley's
Purse: gift
Scarf: gift

I got a couple new things. A sweater and some sandals when I exchanged a Christmas present (apparently you're supposed to do that right away because the sale associate had to call her manage to let me exchange it. I thought you had until the end of January) and a new skirt. I only ended up spending $30. I think that's pretty good!

Golden Globes

So, I'm always a little behind, but here's my picks from the Golden Globes. And the outfits I wondered about. As usual, there was a few really beautiful gowns and a few that made me shake my head. Mainly, Helena Bonham Carter. Don't get me wrong, I love her as a actress, but she honestly looks a little insane. Like she's still being Bellatrix Lestrange. The dress matched with her hair makes her look crazy and her shoes don't match. But maybe that's what she was going for.

On the flip side, I have a confession to make. I don't like Justin Bieber. I find his songs very annoying, though less annoying than his hair and the fact that they make toddler nighties with his face on them. That said, I thought he looked good at the Golden Globes. His hair looked more normal than usual and I like his vest.

Lea Michele. She looks great, but why does she look so damn spoiled. I mean, she's on a red carpet, living thousands of people's dream. So smile already.

Here's the rest of the looks I liked. Who was your favourite? (Photos from

Alice + Olivia Pre-Fall

I just wanted to share some looks from the Alice + Olivia Pre-Fall collection. I really love the vintage feel of this collection. Ples, it has everything. There's cute hat, coats, dresses, the works. Plus, there's colour, which I'm always a huge fan of. What do you think? (Photos from

Christmas gifts

So, with my little blogging absence, I realize I missed Christmas. My Christmas's usually aren't very fashionable, both in what we wear and what we received. My mom, sister-in-law and I all have different styles, so we're kind of hard to buy for. But I did get a couple of things.

First of all, my sister-in-law (with input from my mom) got me this cute grey purse. I like the style and it's huge, so I can fit my lunch and a book in it for work days.

Also, my mom got these gloves for my sister-in-law and I liked then. Since they were on sale, my mom got an extra pair and gave them to me. I love them, but the bf says they make me look like a biker. I wear them anyway :)

That's it other than a vest from my parents which I'm going to take back. Anyone else get anything cool for Chirstmas. My big present from my parents was a microwave and the bf and I didn't buy each other anything since we bought a giant tv instead. Have a great week!

Triumphant Return?

So, it's been a while. I apologize (like I always do) for the unannounced little break. It started with a lack of inspiration to a promotion at work to moving last weekend. Yet, here I am, back at it.

As I mentioned above, I got a promotion at work, meaning I now work in an office setting in customer service, rather than in the lab. Which is nice because it means I get to dress up more for work and all that. Also, I get to wear contacts to work, which is awesome since I hate wearing glasses (contacts are prohibited in the lab for safety reasons).

So here's what I wore to work yesterday. I need to go do a little shopping for dress pants, since I only have two pairs.

Also, I'm not really sure what was going on with my camera. The pictures looked fine on my camera, but are all funny now that I've uploaded them. I guess it doesn't like the lighting in my new house since it's a bit dim. I will have to experiment a bit.

Also, I cut and dyed my hair (I'm not sure if you can notice due to the picture quality). I'll try to post a better picture next time!
