Sun, Where Art Thou?

Oh Disneyland 2012... Wetzel's Pretzels anybody?
Maybe it's that today was the third day in a row that it snowed, or that it hasn't gone above 10 degrees in about two weeks,
but I'm so ready for Summer!

Spring would do too at this point to be honest,


I'll even take those pictures that end up looking like
(That. Exposure.)
just because I'd know the sun was the culprit.

The snow can be pretty, I mean, think of all the things you can do...
snow-angel making...,
...schoooool caaancelinggg...?

101: Building Your Business Wear Wardrobe! (Photos)

I just graduated from my BCom program in August 2013! (6 months ago now. Doesn't feel like it's been that long... huh, wow!)
Two weeks into the Business program, we were all to attend our first conference - told to stay the whole day, practice our business etiquette, and most important (& most challenging for me at the time):
to dress

Now at that time, being Business students, one might think that we all had our suits bought & ready to go, right? Oh, no no.
After that weekend, I made it a sort-of "mission" of mine to slowly but surely build a more COMPLETE business wear wardrobe than I had started with, so I'd be ready for the rest of that year (& even for work afterwards!)

So, here's a quick run down of the different components you might need to wear for work post-grad,
I hope it helps!!

If you're just starting out, I'd even pick just ONE from each of the following categories,
and you'll have a solid start! :)

"STREET STYLE" Inspiration (Photos)

In a #fbloggers chat a few weeks ago, one of the topics was "Street Style", and even though I'd heard the term before, honestly, I still couldn't QUITE nail down the definition for it.

Before I'd been told what "street style" was, I assumed that my style would be considered "street style" based on how casually I dress...! But, I think street style literally just depends on the person, and what they wear everyday, which means it can vary a ton.

 I like casual & comfy, but that being said, I feel like I could have 10 different closets FULL of clothes and still feel like there were more clothes out there that kinda captured my laid back / casual style - there are variations for sure!

There are lots of people I see day-to-day around town whose style I think is so on point and put together, but to avoid taking awkward pictures of people I don't know, I thought I'd mention some more common celebrities (5 in particular) whose street style is pretty similar to mine (or at least what I'd like mine to look somewhat like haha)

OCHO LOCO 2 by Urban Decay.

I received this lovely set of eyeliners from my sister for my birthday last month.
Before I was given this URBAN DECAY OCHO LOCO 2 set, I always used a simple black liner from
Maybelline for my everyday makeup looks. I had tried a brown liner before, but maybe due to the
pencil I chose, the colour just didn't show up very well, so I stuck to my black.

My eyes have been OPENED.
