Mackage Kay Jacket (Review)







Hey everyone ! I've been getting a lot of question on this Mackage coat I bought this year, so I thought I'd post a review on my experience with it so far .

General Info  

- Water-repellent down-filled body. 
- Exterior: 100% polyester.
- Filling: 90% duck down, 10% feather.          
 - Trimmings: 45% acrylic, 44% wool, 2% spandex. 
- Other trimmings: real fur (Asiatic racoon), genuine leather.  
- Price: 890$ Can 

 Pro
-My first major pro, is the design . I just think it's such a good looking coat with a unique fur hood that adds the perfect amount of glam to a simple black coat . 
- I also love that it is warm . I don't generally wear anything too thick under it and it keeps me warm, the pockets also have a nice soft lining which is nice when you stick your hands in 

- the double zip. If you notice in the pictures , I have only zipped up the shorter inside zipper . This is super useful for many reasons . First , I find it looks more stylish and slimming. Second, It's a fast way to zip up when it's not too cold outside and third, It's perfect when you are driving , when you zip up these longer coats , I find it can restricts your leg movement when you are sitting . 

Cons

- My main con (and I don't know if this is just an issue I have or others do as well) but since the fur hood frames the face and sits rather rigid , even when I have it down , I find it creats blind spots for me when I'm driving . I'm constantly pushing it down when I'm checking over my shoulder 

- The hood tends to blow off you head fairly easily . If you look at the design of the fur hood, it is easy to see why . But it's this same design which makes it so stylish . Catch 22 

Overall , I love this coat and would definitely recommend it ! I don't feel frumpy at all when I put it on, and as you know we have many more months of cold weather ahead of us ! 

Hope this was helpful !

Think Pink






Jacket: Gap | BodySuit: American Aparel | brooch: Chanel | jeans: All Saint | Bag: Chanel | belt: Hermes | Shoes: Christian Louboutin Decolette 100mm | Sunglasses: Celine 


Hi everyone ! I was so lucky to have Shizzy take pictures for me again ! She always makes me feel so at ease and not self conscious at all, even though there ended up being some "run ins" on this random cut de sac lol!  It's been a long time since I've worn this Gap pink Moto jacket , but I needed a pop of colour after what feels like months of wearing dark colours ... Canadian winters will do that to you !

LIPSTICKS

Hey Everyone ! 

I am several things, and a recovering Makeup hoarder is one of those things. I'd say over the past several years I have REALLY made a conscious decision to only buy products that I needed, and gave away things I knew I could never possibly finish. But I thought I'd share what is left of my lipstick collection and hope i don't fall into a deep downward spiral of hoarding .....




You will definitely notice a preference for MAC lip products. And while I really do love MAC lipsticks, I'd be lying if I didn't mention it's also because I am slightly OCD and want them to have a uniform look in my lipstick holder  #itstrue.  

First up are some of my most worn shades....I am definitely a neutral girl!. Colours I highlight in RED are amongst my favourite colours ! 


From L to R: Honey Love, Blankety, Hug Me, Twig, Touch, Spirit, Kinda Sexy



L to R: Modesty, Cosmo, Taupe, MAC Red, Girl About town, Kid Kat, Del Rio, Sheer Plum 
Notably Missing: MAC "Chilli" another fav! 

L to R: Snob, Viva Glam Gaga, Pink Friday, Please Me, Angel, YSL Rouge Volupte 07, YSL 03, Bobbi Brown Pale Peach (bottom swatch) 
* Notably Missing (likely in my purse) is Pink Plaid, my fav Pink!


I have really downsized on my glosses because I just don't really wear them often. Here is what is left of my small collection. 

L to R: Fulfilled, Ample Pink, New Spirit, Under-age, Jelly Babe, Name rubbed off :( 

So that is the *Majority* of my lipsticks.... I know there are some missing that must be in purses, cars, under my toddlers bed etc...

Hope this was helpful for some of you guys, and I would love to read about your favourite lipsticks! !

Talk soon!

Beige + New Year Resolutions







Sweater and Skirt: Banana Republic | Scarf: Zara | Bag: YSL Sac Du Jour Medium size | Boots: Browns | Sunglasses: Polo

Happy 2015 Everyone ! I was cleaning up all my pictures and came across these from the fall which I never posted :) It's now way to cold to step out like this, but I'm hoping for a fast winter! I wanted to share with you all a few of my New Year resolutions. They say writing them down and sharing them makes you more likely to follow through, so here I go :)

1. Drink more water: This sounds easy enough, but it's something I struggle with! I can go an entire day without drinking any water and it's terrible! If you guys have any tips on how I can make it easier for myself to drink water, I'd love to hear it!

2. Take care of my skin: Many of you may be shocked by my secret. I don't wash my face at night! Its so terrible for your skin! And I don't mean I "occasionally" forget to wash my face. I almost never do!  That means my skin stays in makeup all night long.... yuck!

3. Blog: My Goal is to keep this blog going as consistently as is possible for the year. I am guilty of loosing interest in things too fast!

4. Exercise: I had to include at least one cliche resolution. But what makes it different this year, is that instead of it being for the reason of "loosing weight" I really want to exercise to be strong. Strong enough to lift my kids, have good muscle mass, and not loose bone density as I age (gee, I'm getting old!)

5. Do something I love: I have always wanted to have a business , but never knew what to pursuit. My goal for this year is to focus on finding something that makes me happy and start a little business on the side. This is an ambitious one, but the year is young!  

I wish you all a fabulous 2015 filled with love, happiness and health!
xoxo
