Girls Night Outfit – Florals

My first post on fashion! I am in no means an expert in fashion, and everyone’s styles are completely different, so do not quote me on anything. ๐Ÿ™‚ My style changes from time to time, but I have been really into florals for a while… They are perfect for the summer and the super hot weather we have been getting here lately!

I haven’t been to a girls night out in a very long time, and so I was pretty stumped as to what to wear for a enjoyable evening with the girls. I turned to Pinterest first, and a lot of the results that popped up when I searched “summer girls night out outfits” were a little too much club-like, or full of items I didn’t really feel comfortable wearing out on their own, like spaghetti strap tops and tank tops. I’m afraid of bug bites!

So I dug through my closet and I’m sure some of you can relate what a strange feeling that can be. There will always be outfits you want to wear, but then you may find that they aren’t appropriate for the evening, or they may expose your skin too much to the sun/bugs… but once I stumbled upon my floral jumper that I hadn’t worn in ages, I was set for the night.

Here is me trying to ‘model’ for a decent photo… I should have taken more angles of the outfit, but it’s so simple!

Floral Romper from Forever 21

The back has a nice criss-cross pattern and ties up at the bottom of your back. It took a bit for me to get used to this dress, as I hadn’t worn an off-the-shoulder top or dress before, but I love the shoulder straps, it makes it so much easier to wear the top, especially if you are new to shoulder tops.

In case you’re curious, we ended up going to Trolley 5 for some food and drinks. Their mac and cheese entree with a fried egg is absolutely DEE-LICIOUS! I cannot recommend it enough, go try it if you are a fan of mac and cheese! We also went to Presotea, a new bubbletea place that opened on 17th ave. So many flavours!

What outfit do you have sitting in your closet that you had to give a second try, and why? Let me know in the comments below!

IPSY x Gudetama July 2017 Bag Opening

Gudetama has been a character that I’ve been an avid fan of since my Japan trip way back in 2015. I was traveling with friends and everywhere we went, the lazy egg would be scattered all over the place! Gudetama was just starting to get popular over here… then I saw Sanrio start promoting it more and now it looks like they’re doing so many collaborations!

I’ve also eyed IPSY bags but never really had the motivation to get one, until I saw Gudetama was doing a collab with Ipsy. I instantly subscribed for my first bag, and received it in the mail a few days ago.

In my metallic pink bubble-wrapped package I found:

A cute Gudetama makeup pouch (it was a bit smelly though…)Gudetama-makeup-pouch

Beaute Basics Travel Face Blender
Cougar Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick in Mulberry
BlenderMulberry

Ciatรฉ London Wonderwand Gel-Kohl Hybrid Liner in Black
OFRA Cosmetics Eyeshadow in Gold Rush
GoldRush-Blackeyeliner

TONYMOLY I’m Real Sheet Masks – Green Tea & Lotus
FaceMasks

I’m not too sure how I feel about this bag, especially it being my first. A friend of mine got completely different products (other than the liner and bag), and I wanted her products instead! I have too many blending sponges, liquid lipsticks and metallic eyeshadows… so half of this bag was not really for me. However, I’m looking forward to trying the TONYMOLY sheet masks!

Summer Essentials

Summer is finally here in Calgary! The sun here is fantastic, but there’s a few days where it just sends a beam straight to the surface of your skin. It’s important to always wear sunscreen with a good SPF and cover yourself as much as you can to protect your skin from the effects of the sun/UV rays and also if you don’t like tanning as much as me! Here’s some of the products I’ve been using for the summer so far:

Vanilla Coconut Sunscreen

Vanilla Coconut Sunscreen SPF 31 from Rocky Mountain Soap Company

Natural sunscreen has been my preference for quite a few years now, and I love this one. It’s non-whitening and smells delicious! The smell reminds me of birthday cake icing… (too bad I can’t eat it…) It doesn’t feel greasy when applied and it doesn’t feel heavy at all on my skin.
