What to Wear to a Picnic #DixieDeals

Double digit weather is finally here and I’m getting ready for patio and picnic dates! It’s a bit tricky deciding on what to wear to a summer picnic. It really depends on what sort of activities you’ll be participating in or the lack of. My general rule of thumb is, if it’s a picnic where you’re playing sports or helping with the BBQ, then I lean towards wearing pants and a top. If I’ll be relaxing and just enjoying the weather, then I want to look cute. Looking cute was a lot easier before having kids. Now whatever I choose to wear, it has to be cute but also “nursing friendly”. SUMMER PICNIC VIBES If you have been following my blog, Twitter and Instagram stories, you’ll see me mention some of the great #DixieDeals I’ve been finding at the Dixie Outlet Mall. The best is when I don’t even know…

Spring Shoes Favourites at Dixie Outlet Mall [Style]

Can Spring get here already?! Although a trip to Dixie Outlet Mall to shop for Spring looks helps make the cold bearable.  Before the weather starts to feel like Spring, I’m out and about looking for the best deals and building my Spring outfits from head to toe. Speaking of toes, shoes are some of my favourite items to shop for. My ideal spring shoes, are a mix of some heels, flats or sneakers.  A great way to get organized for Spring shopping is to figure out which colours and textures you’re looking for. Are you rocking pastels, nudes or keeping it basic with black, white and grey this Spring? This Spring I’m mixing nudes, pastels and grey in my wardrobe. On my recent trip to Dixie Outlet Mall I scored some amazing #DixieDeals!  P.S Don’t forget to use this hashtag when you find a great deal at the Dixie Outlet Mall, for a…

The New Staple Must Have: Bomber Jacket [OOTD]

BOMBER JACKET A staple in every girls closet is the classic jean jacket. Goes over all your cute dresses and can turn any outfit from boring to fashionista status. My new favourite staple these days is the green bomber jacket! I’m loving the bomber jacket look and will definitely opt in for it when the colours pair well. Looks especially nice when paired with accessories like choker necklaces and aviator sunglasses. This colour in particular looks best with nudes, browns and black. I love the graphics on this bomber! Even in my last trimester I’m able to rock this bomber jacket with ease. I had a lot of people stopping me and asking where I got it. I’m wearing the XL and it’s on sale for $25 from $75! I purposely got a bigger size so it could wear a little looser on me. I read the helpful reviews as well and…

Dixie Outlet Mall Shopping Challenge + GIVEAWAY!

I absolutely love this time of the year! How can anyone not? It’s full of love, surprises and so much cheer. I’m really looking forward to the holidays, especially since it’s also our wedding anniversary on Dec 25th. Every time I tell people that, the reactions I get are either “OMG, you guys are crazy! How did you manage?” or “Awee that’s so cute” or how about.. “You guys must really love Christmas!” To be honest, it’s a bit of all three. Okay, so because we have our anniversary and the holidays are among us, I get really conscious about how much and where I spend my money. So when I was given a $100 Shopping Challenge for a holiday look, you bet I was excited! As soon as I got to the Dixie Outlet Mall, all that excitement turned into, “Oh $#&*. $100?! Okay, this is going to…

L’Oréal Revitalift Bright Reveal VoxBox [Review]

Finally I got around to opening this voxbox and trying the products that I got for testing purposes. Below is my review of each product that I used for a little over one week now. Let me know below in the comments if you’ve tried any of these products and what you think! It was great hearing from you guys on Instagram. XO L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Brightening Daily Scrub Cleanser I’ve used this for a week now and one of the things that I love about this scrub is that the beads are not abrasive. They’re actually gentle compared to other leading brands. The scent is not overpowering and it appears to be working. I did start to break out after the first day of using it, but that could just be the resurfacing of dirt etc for the deep cleansing to work. When to use: Nightly What does it…

Staying Warm Winter Basics

Just when everyone starts to think the weather is going to change, we’re hit with frigid temperatures and people start to get sick. I know, but it’s March and spring should be around the corner. You just never know with this topsy turvy weather. For the last bit of this winter I thought I’d squeeze in some of my favourite winter basics this season. Some of you may be familiar with the hashtag #DarkTO. Which was trending on Twitter when we started to get power outages due to the extreme cold conditions in southern Ontario. We had a few days of sun and then got hit with this deep freeze spell. Hopefully the last for this winter, especially since that was only a few days ago. Are you braving the cold and going about your usual schedule or have you decided to hibernate? What are some of your winter basics for…

Every Girl Needs: The Boyfriend Coat & Some Sister Love

I’m crushing on the oversize look. Oversized clutch, sweaters and of course the coat. I love the fit of my yellow coat this winter and was on a hunt for something similar, but a more subdued colour. You may have seen it in my Naksan Park, South Korea post. So I did a little experiment for my day out with my sisters. Just before I left my house, I tried on my husband’s coat, rolled up the sleeves and added a clip on fur scarf I purchased from H&M last winter. Ana & I having way too much fun taking pictures 🙂 Later tonight #OnTheBlog: Every girl needs a boyfriend jacket and some sister love ❤ #lookbook #whatiwore #igaddict #igdaily #bcbg #persona #pandora #Burberry #happy #sisterlove #bestoftheday #Prada #hm #instamood #igers #wcw #instago #fashion #style #igfashion #ootd #loveit #instalove #webstagram #me A photo posted by Hum (@humjk) on…

Weekend Wear: Black & White Swizzle

During the weekend if you don’t have anywhere to go that calls for formal, semi-formal or even business casual then believe me, I’m going towards an outfit like this. Easily transformed into dressed up and to walking down town Toronto streets. With a change of shoes I was ready for both in my black and white swizzle wear. Don’t let the height of these wedges fool you. They’re really comfortable! I would suggest if you’re purchasing anything from this on-line store, purchase half a size or one size up. They’re not true to size and fit a bit snug. I’ve always found wedges to be a lot easier to walk in than skinny stilettos. It’s just a matter of finding the right design. As most wedges are not very..erm…fashionably pleasing? Sweatpants Jogger Cut – UB, similar here Shirt – HM Wedges & Purse – Shoedazzle Necklace – Forever21…
