Today is a special day of celebration, as it is my 23rd birthday! This day encourages me to examine how far I have come, what I have learnt in the past year and to pursue goals that I have not yet had time for. This year I have really started to dress more sustainably and lead a more minimal lifestyle – and I am very proud of myself for that. My goals for this upcoming year are to buy less, buy used, buy better and only buy items made from natural materials.
This year my celebration is a little more glamorous, as I was gifted this beautiful rose gold bracelet from Paris Jewellers. Paris Jewellers is a Canadian luxury jewellery retail brand that is co-owed by two sisters. Nothing quite like the inspiration of these successful women to motivate me to accomplish my goals!

A few years ago, I did not own any rose gold jewellery, however in this past year I have grown very fond of rose gold. Rose gold is such a soft and warm colour, which makes it flattering on every skin tone. I like how this bracelet has a dainty adjustable drawstring, perfect for my petite wrists. It also sparkles brilliantly and adds eye-catching detail to any outfit.
Thank you Paris Jewellers for adding some glam to my birthday celebration! Find this bracelet and many more beautiful pieces at Paris Jewellers, located in Midtown Plaza and Lawson Heights Mall.

I am very excited and proud to announce that this entire outfit is all secondhand clothing and accessories. Buying clothes secondhand saves the atmosphere from further carbon pollution and the world from further chemical toxicity that would have been produced to create new clothing. Not only is my entire outfit all secondhand, but it is all made from natural fibres that will break down eventually – unlike synthetic clothing which releases plastic microfibres every time it is washed, which has lead to a massive pollution problem. I also want to mention that this entire outfit costed me around $100 Canadian. You can buy secondhand clothing, save money (and donate/spend it on things that really matter), and still look amazing! I encourage you to scout out your local thrift stores, vintage stores and Value Villages and have fun discovering treasures and embracing your true style through a more earth-friendly alternative.

Buy Less. Buy Used. Buy Better.
Have you ever seen anything as beautiful as this blue velvet coat? I’m obsessed. This is part of a series of outfits I put together for my feature on the Sasktel blog. Winter style does not have to be boring with bold and unique jackets! When styling a striking jacket, stick to a monochrome outfit so it doesn’t look too busy and to allow your jacket to pop! Thank you Nicole Romanoff for your photography!

With the term coming to an end, and winter soon approaching, I had the opportunity to showcase my favourite fall fashions on the Sasktel Blog! Here is one of the five looks that I created. Thank you to Nicole Romanoff for her wonderful photography! Check out my feature on the Sasktel blog here!

I have indeed been on an unexpected journey, which has left me with little time to blog, but I’m back, baby! I picked this shirt up at the Regina Expo, right after I met Sean Astin – it’s truly one of my favourite shirts. Sure, I love fashion, but you better believe that I love Tolkien and LOTR much more!
Jeans: American Apparel
I thought it was appropriate to post this today, as this might be the last of fall in Saskatoon. I am joined here by Cam, a friend who wanted to help add some Men’s fashion to the blog. It is truly all about the layering. As many points of interest you bring into the outfit, without it being overwhelming, is key.
Huge thank you to Josh Campillos for the photography.

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a great Saturday!
I was very inspired by the incredible PARK Fashion Show here in Saskatoon! I really enjoyed myself, and had an amazing night! I left this event wishing I could look as put together as the models did, every day! These Canadian designers have really put forward some great pieces this season. I am very impressed, here are some of my favourites:
Oh how I am a sucker for details! I loved how the bobby pins were placed in the models hair and how it was tied up with twine in the back. I am also a huge fan of the dark purple lipstick, such an essential fall staple. I cannot wait to try this look out on myself! I am picking up some 1960’s, 1980’s, and 1990’s vibes in some of these outfits, which I highly approve of!
I am so glad I got to attend this lovely fashion show and I am thankful for this opportunity. It is so exciting to be able to attend events like this in Saskatoon!
