NEEDING A CHANGE


i am getting my hair done tomorrow, hooray! i have been wanting to try the "ombre" or "dipped ends" trends for a long time
now, unfortunately last time i tried to get it done, i walked out of the salon with worse roots than i went in with. i like the
look a lot, but it as to be done right! i only like it when the ends are lighter so it looks intentional ( i hate roots, especially
paying $200 for them) so now i am slightly apprehensive to try it again, that and the fact that i probably don't have long
enough hair for it to look right, ah so many decisions, my like is so hard.

NCIE PACAKGE!

ETSY STORE OF THE WEEK





i always love to discover new stores on etsy and i have a major weakness for jewellery, so i have decided to feature my
favourite etsy store of the week on my blog. i came across this store nest pretty things and absolutely LOVE every piece
i don't know how i am gonna decide! i think the modern necklace no. 2 might just have to belong to me....or maybe the
blushing necklace
, or maybe both! it also comes with such pretty packaging ( i am a sucker for that stuff) it would
make awesome birthday presents for friends as well.

MY NEW JACKET









so this post is kinda late but i just wanted to show you guys this awesome jacket i got for myself over christmas. ok so i will
be honest with you, i am the worst christmas shopper ever because i always end up getting distracted/tempted by things i
see and end up buying just as many things for myself as other people. one of those things was this jacket. i had seen this
sort of tribal/ethnic pattern around a few times and on various blogs and loved the look! the only thing is i couldn't really
find it anywhere....that is until i read the latest edition of nylon magazine (awesome magazine by the way) and found this
BB Dakota jacket inside. i had never heard of the brand BB Dakota but they have lots of cute stuff at a reasonable price too,
i definitely recommend checking there site out. i ended up buying the jacket for a lot less from the site shopbop.com (this
site is amazing for high fashion brands as well as everything in between) i don't usually do outfit posts mainly because i feel
a little silly trying to pose all model like lol that and the fact that i i don't have a tripod and my bf just made fun of me when
i asked him to be the photographer.....needless to say i managed to make it work with the help of my timer and some fancy
foot work.

COLOUR ME HAPPY





so my boyfriend and i finally found a place yesterday! we are moving to southampton at the end of the month and i can't wait
to decorate our new place.....on a budget :) i know everyone always asks us why we would move down there, but it's actually
not that bad, and really pretty near the water but the main reason we are moving down there is because our friends live there.
i am so excited to move in, does anyone know any good DIY home decor sites?

ok, so i am a week late with this post but better late than never right? this past week has been surprisingly busy with
work/meeting up with friends in town for the holidays that i have been kinda slacking in the blogging world.
i have never been the "new years resolution" type person but i am excited for this coming year! (ok i lied i do want to
excise more and eat better) I have just moved to the uk from vancouver canada and things are kinda up in the air right
now. i don't even know where my bf and will be moving to next month! but that's exciting right, i love not knowing
what is gonna happen...any thing is possible and i am excited to see what unfolds this coming year. i also wanted to
say how grateful i am to everyone who takes the time to read my blog! i started this blog as a way to express my
passion for design and fashion and everything else that inspires me and it's an honour to me if any of you can take
inspiration from my blog as well. there are a lot of changes still to come, so stay tuned!
