Old becomes New!

Friday 9 October 2020


A little or A lot late posting this. I meant to post this a while ago but got so busy. 
How has everyone's summer gone? It went by so fast but I really enjoyed all the nice weather. 

No, this is not a two piece. I found this old top in my closet that I never wear and just had a vision on how I could wear it. So, I created this whole look in my mind and I really love it. My shorts were from garage (also from my closet) and the colour of the top matched perfectly. I only buttoned the top button because I had the idea to focus attention to my gold jewelry and match the jewelry to my gold belt. It turned out exactly as I planned. I completed the look with my white Fila's and these cool sun glasses from aldo. I really like how this look turned out. I love to take clothes from my closet and just wear them in ways I haven't worn before. An old shirt and shorts just became a new, fresh matching set! What do you guys think? Is there anything you would have done differently? I would love to know. 

Now that fall has arrived, I'm so excited! It's my favourite season. I love fall fashion and I love to layer up.  And with Halloween just around the corner, I'm pumped. Anyone dressing up this year? What are your costume ideas? I'm still deciding myself.

It's Been A While.

Friday 7 August 2020

Top: Boohoo / Overalls: Boohoo / Purse: Aldo / Sneakers: Fila

2020. What a year it's been thus far. Hey guys, I know it's been a while. Here's a little summer photoshoot I did last month. We've been getting a lot of hot weather here lately and it's been great. The past two days however is just so humid and hot. I'm just sitting here sweating to death and thought maybe this is the perfect time to finally come back here and update my blog. I'm so in love with this crop top that I bought from Boohoo! It's so lovely and I thought it would look really cute with these white overalls; also from boohoo. It's definitely been one of my favourite outfits of the summer. 

How's summer going for you guys? I know summer is a bit different this year with Covid-19 currently happening. I hope you guys are staying safe! Life can be pretty wild sometimes. You never really know what's going to come your way. I guess the important thing is to be careful and to be grateful for everything that's good in your life. And don't let negative energy bring you down. 
How have you guys been keeping busy, I would love to know. Have you done anything interesting over the summer? Let me know in the comments. :)

Monday 16 September 2019

Hello! Yes, Fall is on it's way. Summer is almost over! I'm both happy and sad because I love both seasons. I haven't been posting much on this blog and it's been a while since my last post. I've been super busy with things. I had gone back to school for a bit but now i've graduated. Also, I just really didn't want to pull out my camera and take photos. But, I really do miss blogging and i'm happy to finally be back at it. 
So, how's life? Anything interesting happening? September seems to be going by really quickly which mean October is just about here. Anyone have plans for Halloween costumes yet? I haven't even thought about it. The weather over August has been truly amazing and so far September has been cooling down nicely. It hasn't gotten too cold yet and the sun is still out but I get to wear a light jacket or sweater and wear more exciting outfits. I love summer but I just hate how little you get to wear on those really hot days. You can't really express yourself through fashion the same way as you can in the Fall season. 
These photos were taken a few weeks ago, hence the more summery look. I've been living in light jumpsuits over the summer. They are such an easy way to look stylish without really trying and still remaining comfortable. 
At one point over the summer while I sitting in this same area as you see in the photos, I heard some flamboyant teen a few houses down probably using a microphone. From what I gathered, there must have been some kind of swimming lessons going on or they were practicing for a competition. Whatever it was, it was hilarious. He was serious about what they were doing. He was saying things like "VANESSA!! We are starting over... 5,6,7,8,   5,6,7,8,   5,6,7,8,   5,6,7,8- Dive!" Then it got dramatic... "Vanessa? Do you think i'm joking with you? I've had it up to here. The water levels are rising. The pressure is coming. We have a show tonight..... Do you find this funny? You can walk your ass out of here." It sounded like he was the only one taking it seriously, poor guy. But it was still funny. The hold neighbourhood could hear him. Some lady walked behind me by the trees from the opposite side of me that the guy was and she looks at me saying "Do you hear him?" "And, I nod and says yes because obviously I hear him, She lives farther from him than I do. And she's like "Ridiculous, there are young kids around. I'm going over there" and she marches right over to him. Five minutes later when she finally gets to him and gets his attention I hear her shouting at him and about how there are children around. She was not having it! I didn't hear him after that. Through out all of this, the teen had the song "uptown girl" playing and it just made it all the more amusing. The neighbourhood is always so peaceful and quiet so I guess it's just funny to see and hear things like this. To be fair, he might have sworn a couple of times and I guess with kids around, no parent wants their kid to be hearing those type of words. 

Hope everyone has a lovely week!

Friday 15 February 2019

Hey everyone, how's life going? Last Saturday was my birthday and it still freaks me out how fast time is going. I swear I turned 25 just yesterday and now i'm 26. My 20's are flying by so quickly and every year just passes by even faster than the last. It's actually stressing me out a bit because I have nothing in my life figured out and before you know it i'll be in my 30s lost and still just as confused as to where I am supposed to be in life. I remember last year I freaked out for a moment when I realized i'd be 27 next year and I felt like I just graduated high school a couple of years ago. Then I realized I had only turned 25 a month ago, not 26 like I had been thinking. Well, that felt like 2 months ago, now I really am 26. Where the heck does time go? I couldn't tell ya.
Does anyone else feel like time is going by waaaayyy toooo quickly? I just need a moment to breath, please.

My birthday had been really nice. I was surrounded by a lot of family and everyone was buying me delicious food all day long. It was definitely a lot nicer than last year where I had spent my birthday completely alone.

Anyways, I've been working on some art related things as well, keeping to my promise of embracing that side of me. I will probably share some of things i've been working on in a future post, if you would like to see it.

Hope you're all have a fantastic week and life is treating you well!

I'm a Unicorn

Monday 5 November 2018

I haven't been very clever with my costume this year. Every year I usually go with something a little more dark and interesting. This year is the first year in a while I went with a more happier costume. A unicorn! How original! I know, practically everyone was a unicorn this year. But, I was thinking about how pale I am and thought might as well be a unicorn. Unicorns can come in different colours of course but I'm thinking of those beautiful, traditional, white, majestic looking unicorns! I actually quite enjoyed the simple costume this year. And I only had to spend a couple of dollars on a headband and that was it. Everything else was from my own closet. 

What did you guys dress up as for Halloween? Did you do anything exciting?
