girl crush

JULIA RESTOIN ROITFELD has such simplistic feminine style with impeccable taste in shoes. i love how she never dresses overly trendy or outrageous like so many of her fellow socialites and celebrity friendlies do. she graduated from parsons school of design in 2006 and now works as an art director. her mother is the genius Carine Roitfeld who just so happens to be the editor in chief of French Vogue who i equally love because she actually seems to love her job unlike the boring stuffy Anna Wintor. In 2006 Tom Ford choose Julia as the face his perfume, Black Orchid. She is also a great role model women today who are tired of looking at malnutrition ed twigs. when it comes to Julia she is never overdone or outdone.

fall how i missed you

In Vancouver there is non stop rain but its never too cold to wear mini dresses and boots and possibly opaque tights or my newest purchase lace tights. looking at this season colour blocking and minis are in and Alexander Wang, DKNY, Herves Leger, Diane Von Furstenberg, and my newest obsession Costella Tagliapietra (the designers them selves are these adorable round lumberjacks)
P.S. its so beautiful out today i feel inspired to paint, oh i am too cheesy and sentimental for words

Make- up post

1. loreal voluminous- i swear i have tried 95% of mascaras out there and nothing works better than this. it gives you long lush lashes that never flake!

2. make-up forever undereye concealer- i have genetically dark circles around my eyes and this stuff is thick enough to last all day but still look fresh and not cakey.

3. benefit bronzer- my friend turned me onto this when she basically attacked me with a brush when she noticed i was looking a bit to pale. its just the right colour if your really fair.

4. benefit throb blush- so pink and so pretty , i dont think i need to say more

5. cover girl liquid liner/ Mac liquid last liner- both of these are really easy to apply and last forever.

6. Burt's bee- i never wear lip gloss and rarely wear lipstick so this tingly moisturizing lip balm is perfect

7.vaseline cocoa butter oil gel- its incredibly moisturizing and smells delicious, it also leaves a sheen on your skin thats never too oily

8. vive pro- i have really coarse hair and this leaves it really soft

9. Kerstase hair serum- this little bottle is worth every penny it leaves your hair soft and shiny.

10. Revlon red- it used to be called cherries in the snow and a few months ago i almost had a heart attack when it wasn't on the shelf! its the most perfect shade of red!

11. DKNY be delicious- really fresh and young and never gives me a headache so it works for me!

12. Neutrogena sunscreen- it drys dry so its easy to apply make up on top right after.

13. Cetaphil clenser- i have tried everything but i always turn back to this. i've never had bad acne so all i really need it to be clean

P.S. i rarely wear all these products at once my regular wear is just concealer, mascara, and sunscreen.

chai and tight

dress- urban outfitters
blazer- free people

i got this dress on sale so of course my size wasn't there but i couldn't pass it up so i got a size to small. i have now learned never wear it shopping way to hard to get it off and on again in under ten minutes.
