I See Noise

So I finally got around to framing and hanging the lovely art work I purchased for my bedroom in December! I just had to share this with you guys because it is so fabulous!


I purchased these lovely prints from I See Noise, an artist based right here in Vancouver! She has a great shop on Etsy; all of her prints are reasonably priced at only $20! There is a great selection of beautiful prints, like the two above, and some really cute sayings (I was sorely tempted by “Some Girls Are Just Born With Glitter In Their Veins”).

My bedroom is now complete! If you’re looking for a little something to amp up your space I recommend giving this great little shop a browse!

Until next time my lovelies!


Revlon, a Review, and a Recap

Happy Monday my lovelies! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

I love nail polish but I rarely paint my nails. It just seems like a lot of effort, and I’m kind of anal so the second it chips I have to take it off. That said, as I mentioned in my last post, I had a bunch of girlfriends over on Friday night and we had a nail painting party! We had a great time. Everyone painted their nails, and we all got a little light headed from the fumes! I picked up bottle of Revlon’s Brilliant Strength Nail Enamel in Enrapture just in time for the party. It’s a really pretty plum colour with a bit of gold shimmer. I thought it looked nice and festive; ’tis the season afterall! The brush was nice and wide, which I like, and the polish went on smooth. I applied two coats and topped it off with my Revlon topcoat. I love the way it looks; it’s a beautiful colour for winter. I slapped a bit of sparkly O.P.I. on the ring finger of each hand and voila, there you have it!


The polish is starting to wear off a little on the tips of my nails but, apart from that, it’s holding up nicely so far! The price point is around $6 so I’m pretty happy! If you’re looking for an inexpensive way to incorporate a little festivity into your look this polish is a nice way to do it!










On my finger is a Social Experiment cocktail ring. Get your own here!

Yesterday I attended The Style Common’s Deck Your Closet event at the Four Seasons Hotel. It was a lovely event and my room-mate and I scored some great deals (the best of which was a Michael Kors purse for $50!). As we were leaving to hotel we spotted Jody Claman of The Real Housewives of Vancouver! We asked her for a photo and she was happy to oblige. She was lovely! It was a fun way to end a lovely morning!

How was your weekend?

An Excess of Exclamation Points!!

Happy Friday friends! I’ve got a fun evening planned – a bunch of girlfriends are coming over for an evening of pizza, cupcakes, wine (obvs!), and nail painting! It should be a great girly evening!

Here are some of the nail trends that I’m tempted to try, even though I have no talent for this kind of thing whatsoever!

Glitter tips are so festive!

 Ombre hair didn’t really work out for me, maybe I’d have better luck with ombre nails!

Another festive look!

Sartorially Puzzling

Ok my darlings, here’s a puzzle for you. An of-the-moment item I am luuuurving is the cape. I think that the look is trés glam, and makes the wearer look like they just jetted in from Paris.

Here’s the pickle though:  how on Earth do you carry your purse??? These are the things that keep me up at night!

First world problems. Am I right?

What fashion items leave you scratching your head?

I’m a normal sized girl. I have a belly, and hips, and a bum. I read a lot of fashion blogs, and magazines. By far, the majority of women looking back at me from the glossies are stick thin. They are so thin that they look unhealthy. One of my current phrases is, “Eat a sandwich!”
It doesn’t make sense to me. Clothes are marketed to normal women. Women with real figures, curves, and bumps. What woman wants to look at photo after photo of someone they can’t relate to at all? Not me.
This is my idea of sexy:
