30 for 30 Challenge begins

Monday, January 31, 2011

So after viewing many 30 for 30 outfits over the past few months, I decided to join the Winter edition starting February 1st. I know it may be difficult since I struggle to take outfit pictures as it is already, but if it was easy it wouldn't be a "challenge" now would it? This challenge was created by the lovely Kendi from KendiEveryday, if you haven't seen her blog yet, you must go check it out!
I am trying to pick pieces that have character and visual interest so that the outfits have a lot life to them. I find that mixing the same basics always gives you the same result, so I'm stepping out of my comfort zone a little and trying to mix texture and pattern.

If you are doing the challenge please leave me a comment so I can follow you and see how you remix your 30 items. It should be fun! Follow me to stay tuned for an exciting month of remixing!

Oh Naturale

Thursday, January 13, 2011

I have been trying to decide what to do with my hair lately.
Since I wake up at 6:15am, doing my hair every day is becoming a pain in my behind. I want to embrace that free spirit-hippie look but can't push myself to quite do it. I usually straighten or curl my hair, and also dye it on a regular basis, so I want to try and give it a rest from all of this damage. I have seen so many of my favourite bloggers following this ombrey, oh naturale trend and can't help but want to give it a try. I have always been called 'cute', which I hate. I wanna be a hot mama and have a little edge! I am discovering my own sense of style and trying out new things along the way, so I am considering this as my next venture into the fashion blogger world. I am ready for a dye job... what do you think... should I skip my hair appointment and try out the grunge look?

Celebrity Crush: Minka Kelly

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

Minka Kelly
Born in Los Angeles, California. Raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Minka is an actress whose most well known role was Lyla Garrity in the TV series Friday Night Lights. She has also appeared in movies such as The Kingdom, and 500 days of summer.
I love her personal style as well as her natural beauty. She is sometimes mistaken for actress Leighton Meester from Gossip Girl.

I just recently heard of Minka Kelly after seeing her on the best dressed list for the People's choice awards wearing a lovely Spring '11 Vivienne Westwood dress.
  I am a little obsessed with army green right now, so I'm kind of in love with this jacket and the dress.
 I also am digging this boho style on her.

Happy 2011

Wednesday, January 5, 2011

So, a new year has begun and I'm not too sure how I feel about it. My parents are on vacation right now, my BF is back home, I'm back to work, and I wish it wasn't so. I was way too comfortable spending late nights with my family and sleeping in. Well now it's back to reality and I'm looking forward to an exciting 2011.
Happy New Year!

Hockey Fan

Sunday, January 2, 2011

I had a holiday filled with hockey. It's not like you can dress glamorously at an arena but I have been having fun with hats lately which is perfect for a hockey game.

We got up so early to drive across the border, hence the lack of makeup.

New hat from an Army Surplus store we went to during our one day in Buffalo. Watching my babe play hockey in a boxing day tournament.

Hope you all had a fun filled holiday! I shall be posting regularly from now on, so follow me and stay tuned.
