After receiving this fabulous pair of Dr Martens, it seems that my shoe obsession has gone a little stir crazy!

Dr Martens are a British heritage… a MUST HAVE item… So quite obviously they are GLUED to my feet this winter.

With my lust for my Dr Martens so ever strong I put together a lookbook with 3 (and a 1/2) ways to wear your Dr Martens in the winter… enjoy.

These nails make me feel like a sparkly Barbie, using ‘Mineral Love’ and ‘Strawberry Milkshake’…. YUM!

Pros (Mineral Love)

  • Easy to apply
  • Not sticky
  • Easy to remove

Cons

  • Needs multiple coats (3)

Pros (Strawberry Milkshake)

  • Pretty color

Cons

  • Streaky
  • Chips
  • Needs multiple coats (5)
  • Long time to dry

Enjoy the pics… BTW sorry about the bad paint’man’ ship.

Hello my loves!

This morning I finally received my shipment from Zara. I have been DREAMING about these shoes, well the Saint Laurent version… but what a dupe! What a bargain!

These Zara glitter booties are such a staple in my closet already… and it’s only day one!

PicMonkey CollageHow perfect are they! Wear with Jeans, leggings, skirts, dresses ANYTHING!!

Here are some pics of my outfit of the day!

They can be ordered here: http://www.zara.com/ca/en/sale/woman/shoes/glitter-booties-c541568p2381517.html

TIPS:

– Comfort level 8

– The glitter stays on

– No grip on sole so can be slippy

– They had sold out of most sizes, I am a small 7 but ordered a 6 1/2, they fit perfectly

Happy shopping

I was lucky enough to receive the Ciaté London Mini Manor 2014 calendar as a Christmas present… it’s a NAIL POLISH ADVENT CALENDAR!!!

What’s included? 24 GOSH DARN AMAZING NAIL POLISHES!

Processed with VSCOcam with m3 preset

I love the Ciaté calendars as it’s a way to try different nail polishes without forking out an absolute fortune.

However just a note they do usually retail in Canada for about $75… which cheaper than buying all the colours. But is still an expense … so here’s a hint … if you wait until after Christmas, this set is dramatically reduced, you can get them as cheap as $25!!!

Anyway I have decided that every Friday I am going to do a swatch… I am going to paint my nails my fav colour of the week.

This week its:

ESPADRILLES, it’s a stunning ruby red. Perfect for the snowy time… it makes me feel all wintery and Dorothy like. We’re not in Kansas anymore!

Pros:

  • Amazing color
  • Easy to apply
  • Long lasting

Cons

  • Hard to remove

I’M BACK!

Well it’s the first Monday of 2015, which means for most of you it’s back to the daily work grind. For me being self employed, this means attempting to get my chocolate and turkey filled butt to the gym!

I admit I am NOT a gym rat… in fact I hate it! I am envious of people that love the gym.

Yoga = hate it gives me a headache

Running = apparently I have a weird run

Swimming = I might drown

Anyway 2015 is my year to turn myself into a definite GYM RAT.

Day one:

Well my progress so far is my outfit… got that sorted!
