Beauty Necessities 

1. Dior Hrydra Life Pro-Youth Sorbet Creme: I came across the moisturizer when I was doing my internship in New York City. After living in South Florida for four years my skin wasn’t used to the dry, winter weather, so my skin was begging for some love. After using the product consistently for about a month, I immediately noticed a difference. My skin was glowing and radiant. I haven’t changed moisturizers since. It’s a little more expensive, but I promise you it’s worth it! 

2. Makeup-Forever Full Cover Concealer: Full coverage concealer. If I’m in a rush, I will often only put this on a couple of blemishes, under my eyes, mascara, and I’m out the door. It’s perfect for a quick fix. 

3. Makeup-Forever Invisible Cover Foundation: I love a flawless foundation, that provides full coverage. I previously only used MAC foundations, because I couldn’t find any other product that could fit my expectations. However, I began to find that MAC was too heavy for my skin, and caused me to break out. After numerous trials of various foundations, I finally came across this one, and I haven’t changed since. It’s light enough to avoid break outs, yet still provides full, flawless coverage. This product was also an award winner in Allure Beauty Expert 2015. 

4. MAC Bronzing Powder in Refined Golden: I’ve been using this product for as long as I can remember. I’ve tested a few other bronzers but I always seem to come back to this one. It has the perfect amount of shimmer in it, and provides just the right amount of definition to my cheek bones. 

5. Smashbox Eyshadow Trio in Vanilla, Sable, & Sumatra: I received this product in a trial box from Sephora, and I’ve been obsessed ever since. I combine Vanilla and Sable for a very natural, daytime look. If I’m trying to create a look that is slightly more dramatic I add in Sumatra. 

Wynwood, MK, & Burberry

One major benefit to living in Miami, is having the opportunity to view the work of amazing artists from all around the globe. And especially our local artist’s work at Wynwood Walls. 

Last night I got home from Orlando, after going on a little weekend getaway to Epcot, and was inspired by all that Orlando had to offer. Therefore, I wanted to revisit one of Miami’s most inspiring places…Wynwood Walls.  
This look is very casual and comfortable, for a fun night of exploring your city, or going shopping with friends. This burgundy sweater is very affordable from Express. It’s basic, but the zipper detailing is definitely what I was attracted to. I paired it with a casual, ripped, pair of jeans, and burgundy Michael Kors loafers. 

The accessories are definitely what pull this outfit together. The black hat is only $16 from Express, and can add a punch line to a variety of different looks. A gold chunky watch is the perfect touch to a casual outfit. And last but not least, I wore my Burberry tote, which is big enough to hold my Canon EOS camera, wallet, phone, and an extra pair of shoes. Although, it’s a little more expensive, it provides lots of room, is amazing quality, and is a beautiful statement piece. 



Creamy Cozy 

Considering that I will be departing back to Miami tomorrow, I wanted to take advantage of this chilly weather while I’m still here. And what better way to do that then go to my best friends cottage, put together a few cozy outfits, and do a few photo shoots!

This faux vest is to die for. It’s by Dex and is relatively affordable considering the amazing quality of it. In order to make this look stand out, I paired it with a cream turtle neck, and accessorized with an olive green cross-body. (Ps. Cream & olive green is one of my favorite color combos this season.) I also showcase a large burgundy tote, to demonstrate a couple of different ways this look can be styled.

Navy, Cream, & a POP of Red!

There is no doubt about it, fall is by far my favorite season of all. The crisp, colorful leaves, spending time with family at Thanksgiving, and sporting the best fashion trends of the year, are only a few of the reasons I’m in love with this season.

However, I’ve recently decided to move back to Miami, Florida, to continue you my education by earning another degree in business (marketing and finance, to be exact), and pursuing my career as a blogger. I will miss my life here in Toronto tremendously! And some major life changes will be taking place. But I deeply believe in chasing your dreams, and not only following your intuition but also your heart.

Bigley Shoes & Clothing (our family business), which is located in Canada, will still be a major part of my life. I grew up watching the business flourish, and I will still be involved with marketing and events, as much as possible. My sister-in-law, Ashley Peel, has recently been managing the business, and has been doing an AMAZING job. I’m so appreciative of her ambition towards the company, and I’m also grateful for her support towards my own, personal goals.

Anywho, I’ve been absent in the ‘blogging world’ these last couple of months, due to all of the rather large decisions and moves I’ve decided to endure! But I’m now back in action! I’m super excited about these next few posts, as I get to take advantage of this amazing fall weather, while I’m still here.

This navy coat is EVERYTHING! The cream and wooden details make this piece super fun to accessorize. I’ve paired it with cream colored hat and gloves, and a red handbag to really make the outfit POP! These grey boots are by Steve Madden, and are 100% my favorite boots this season. Not only are they extremely affordable, they’re the perfect accent to almost any outfit.
