Club Monaco Market 2016

| On
Monday, October 24, 2016

Today's post is a bit of a throwback - to Club Monaco's market that they had set up in the summer! It was super cute and totally Instagram-worthy. I loved looking at (and taking photos of) the pretty fresh flowers and strolling through the other vendors with one of my good blogger friends, Adrienne

For this look, I wore the off-the-shoulder shirt trend. I love this top because it has cute little ties on either side of the shoulders and it sets it apart from the typical off-the-shoulder shirt. I tied a pink bandanna around my neck, and paired these pieces with a plain black pair of culottes. I added my white Birkenstock sandals to keep the look cool and casual.

Back to School with Jouviance Beauty

| On
Friday, October 21, 2016

As you may or may not know, my college program runs a little different than normal schools, and I started a new term at the beginning of October! I got this package from Jouviance Beauty just in time to add these products into my back-to-school beauty essential routine. Read my full review for each of these items below!

The parcel I received included a face mask, face lotion, and a 3-in pro corrector compact. 

Soft Peel Face Mask

This face mask contains 5% glycolic acid, so this helps diminish pore size and treats blackheads and pimples. It also promotes a visibly smoother complexion. I have super oily and acne prone skin, so I was super excited to try this out! 

Every time I use it, my skin feels super fresh, cleansed and actually SO much smoother. I love how it truly changes the texture of my skin right after washing it off. 

Product rating: 4.5 / 5

Pro-Corrector 3 in 1

This compact comes with three shades for correcting any impurities in skin! I have added this to my everyday makeup routine and am IN LOVE! I use the peach shade under my eyes to brighten them up and hide dark circles, and I use the mint green shade on blemishes and redness and then blend with my foundation over top.

Product rating: 5 / 5

Soft Peel Lotion 

This lotion has SO many benefits and features to it that makes me super excited to use it every time. It detoxifies and hydrates skin, diminishes pore size (which is always a plus for my skin type), reduces hyper pigmentation and acne breakouts, and promotes a visible smoother complextion. I usually use this product before bed by applying a thin layer after cleansing my skin. I love how it never makes me break out and I can count on in throughout the cold months to keep my skin super hydrated still. 

Product rating: 4.5 / 5

How Do You Wear Pink? | #THEPINKLIFE

Sunday, October 16, 2016

For the LAST post in #THEPINKLIFE series, I am featuring Toronto bloggers - and how they wear their pink! I had the pleasure of photographing four looks as well as creating a fun little look book video!  

Blair Alex of Couture in Chains is not a super "pink" girl, but when she told me about this amazing bomber jacket she found, I knew it had to be included in this series! She went for a super 70's vibe and styled it with flared cut-off denim, patent leather boots, and some of her favourite accessories such as these red Quay sunnies and her Chanel bag.

Jacket // Forever 21
Denim // H&M
Boots // Mango
Sunglasses // Quay Australia 

Tiffany of The Picky Princess wore this gorgeous pale pink lace dress with a trendy lace-up neckline detail. She paired a cute little grey bralette underneath, as well as her black boots - perfect for fall! Her pink lip definitely plays up the femininity in this look and makes for a perfect way to wear the beloved colour!

Dress // Forever 21
Bralette // Abercrombie
Boots // Franco Sarto

Ema of The Pretty City Life wore an adorable pink lace top with a cute little white skirt. This soft and pastel look is super cute and suits her so well!

Top // Aritzia
Skirt // H&M

Adrienne of Beyond the Exterior wore a hot pink skirt for her pink look! She styled it with a lace detailed white top and a pair of amazing silver flats. She is ready for a twirl in this outfit! See Adrienne's post about this look here.

Here is the awaited "Pink Life" #OOTD

I almost always incorporate pink into my look somehow or some way. Even if it's just my lipstick shade. For this look, I made it a bright bold pop of pink to fit right in with #THEPINKLIFE series posts. 

I paired this fun "shocking pink" party skirt with an opal sequin tank top. I shot this look when it was still pretty warm out, so I have a pair of white and gold sandals on. Pink heels would also be perfect, though! To stay "on trend" I popped on this satin pink choker and my go-to Michael Kors gold watch to accessorize. 

I hope you liked this pink look! Remember to tag your pink looks and photos to share with me using the hashtag #THEPINKLIFE and #MAKStyleThePinkLife on any social media network.
