Classics from St Ives bring Sexy BACK @stivesskin

St. Ives Naturally Soothing Oatmeal & Shea Butter Body Lotion is a new addition to my bathroom shelves. I have tons of products and am always on the look out for new and more! St Ives is a well known brand you can find at any drug store or Target. 

They have classic beauty products like the Apricot Scrub and now this Oatmeal body butter!

Natural Ingredients:

  • Oatmeal –A natural occurring ingredient known to soothe dry skin and contains saponins, which are known to gently remove dirt
  •  Shea Butter—Contains Vitamins A, E and F, as well as fatty acids, which are known to help moisturize and replenish thirsty skin

The best thing is this lotion is Hypoallergenic, Paraben-free, Dermatologist-tested and gentle for sensitive skin.

 

This is the secret weapon for a beautiful summer back! With so many cut out sweaters, dresses and tops, you need to take care of your back the way you take care of your face!

What She Wore: Recap of @WMCFashionWeek #ootd

IMG_20130416_234917

I get really excited and frustrated when World MasterCard Fashion Week comes around, because I have no clue what to wear lol. I’m excited for all the fashion goodness, but when it comes to dressing myself, I’m a total wreck. This season, I did what I always do, BRIGHT COLOURS. I figured people won’t really notice how nice, or not so nice your outfits are, when there are nice and bright colours to distract them lol. So my approach this season was keep it simple, and O.D. on lots of colour, prints and head wraps. As for my make-up, I chose to keep that simple as well; clean face, winged eyes, and a burgundy lip. I planned on wearing my fro out this season, but the weather was crazy honey, so that wasn’t happening! Here’s what I wore during 5 of some of the the most fashionable days in Toronto :)

DAY ONE

I had just gotten off work, and I was exhausted. It was cold outside, and I was feeling blue… I was also late so I had to think quickly lol

Headwrap: H&M | Dress and Earrings: Forever21 | Vintage Blazer: Black Market | Shoes: Jessica Simpson | Bangles: Costa Blanca

DAY TWO

The mustard and the camo headwrap just seemed like a good idea… and as long as the colours were popping, I was cool with it :)

Headwrap: Holt Renfrew | Vintage Blazer: Black Market | Dress: H&M | Shoes: Aldo

DAY THREEPicsArt_1363833871631

I had the day off and the chance to take a long and glorious nap, so I was feeling more fashion week-y on day three! Plus, this jumpsuit was TIGHT when I first bought it, so you can only imagine the JOY I felt, when I put it on and it fit! I had to rock it!

Headwrap: It’s a pashmina :) | Vintage Jumpsuit: Black Market | Shoes: BCBG MAXAZRIA | Bangles: A market in Accra, GhanaPicsArt_1363833560331

The “Big Red Bow” was a hit during fashion week, and this is the first time I’d ever tied my headwrap like this. Success!PicsArt_1363921181048

I was feeling fun, flirty and girly, so this dress was a natural choice!

Headwrap: H&M | Earrings: Forever21 | Vintage Silk Dress: Black Market | Bag: Steve Madden | Wedges: AldoPicsArt_1364017287347

I really didn’t know what to wear for day five, I was tired from all the shows and events, and just needed a nap; but once I remembered that I had this dress that I bought in the UK almost a year ago, everything fell into place :)

Headwrap: Black Market | Earrings: Forever21 | Dress: Miss Selfridge | Shoes: Aldo

There you have it! What do you all think of my choices?

Stay fly!

Event Recap: @WMCFashionWeek Days 3, 4, 5, and everything in-between.

So fashion week came to an end on Friday, and as sad as I was to see it go, I was also extremely relieved lol. I could finally give my feet a rest, and my afternoon naps could pick up where they left off… I kid :) I was really excited for this season, I guess missing the last season, had me craving all the wonderful streetstyle, and of course; I couldn’t wait to see what this round of designers had in store for us.

What did I think about World MasterCard Fashion Week F/W2013? Hmmm…. It was nice. Honestly, I was exhausted by day three and there seemed to be a certain je ne sais quoi missing this season. I didn’t bother filming any of the shows after day two because everything was going to be online anyway, and let’s be honest the quality of IMG’s video is way better than mine :)

However, despite the exhaustion I loved catching up with and meeting Toronto’s fashionistas, and I’m always inspired by the designers who show their collections. I wasn’t thrilled by majority of the collections, but I’m always inspired by the courage that these designers have to show their collections, to hundreds of very picky and very fashionable fashionistas :)

My Favourite shows from Days 3, 4 and 5?

This show was my life!

My highlights this season?

  • I LOVED Korhani, Bustle gave me life, and PAVONI? PAVONI took my breath away!
  • I made a few best dressed and beauty lists, which was kinda flattering I can’t lie :) Thanks to GLOW Magazine, Fashion Magazine, BlogTO, and everybody else that made this lil girl feel a lil special :)

I always think my liner looks a lil off so this was very comforting lol :)

  • I got to catch up with my fellow blogger fashionistas who were all looking beyond FLY honey! *two snaps*
  • * The street style. Despite the crazy cold weather, Toronto fashionistas were not going to be swayed, because they BROUGHT it through wind, rain, snow and shine!

There was a great deal of black on the runway this season… I’m a sucker for bright colours and bold prints so all the black leather, fur etc. obviously this wasn’t my thing, but I will say that all the collections were really well made, and the attention to detail was ON POINT. Two very fashionable thumbs up.

I can’t wait for World MasterCard Fashion Week S/S2014 because there’s bound to be lots of colour! Woohoooo :) A big congratulations to all the designers who showed this season, I can only wish I had even half of your courage to follow my dreams!

Until next season :)

Stay fly!
