Celebrity Crush: Jessica Stroup

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

To go along with my 90210 kick that I have been on lately, I wanted to feature Jessica Stroup as my latest Celebrity Crush. She's so naturally gorgeous and has wicked style on and off set.

Jessica Stroup: Actress

Born in Anderson, South Carolina on October 23, 1986
Now residing in Los Angeles, California
Started acting in 2005 for a kids show on Nickelodeon, and is best known for her role as "Erin Silver" on the hit show 90210


And is there not a crazy similarity between her and Kelly Framel from The Glamourai?

Fall inspiration '12: Planet Blue

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

You have to join me in drooling over this amazing shoot by Plant Blue. I am obsessed with their lookbooks and wish I could pull off every look like these gorgeous girls do. It even tempts me to dye my hair some crazy colour. Doesn't it look sick?

Outfit: Summer maxi

Monday, August 27, 2012

I know it's been a while since I've posted an outfit so here's a few photos of one of my favourite summer maxi dresses. Figured I'd sneak it in there before the summer is over. A few things I've been trying lately: lipstick, natural hair, and boho outfits. What do you think?

Wedding Guest

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

Pardon my absence for the past few weeks. Things have been busy with work, personal life, and weddings!
I thought I would start catching you up with some photos from one of the weddings we attended. We left early and flew down to Ottawa, ON (Canada) a few weeks ago for my husband's cousins wedding. It was a great time and so fun to be able to wear some of my indian outfits. I wore a blue saree in the morning, and the black for the reception.

(Are you dying over this adorable couple as much as I am?! They wear the same perfume!)

"I think you can be attractive at any age. I think trying to look like a spring chicken when you’re not makes you look ridiculous." {3}
