What Happens During Brunch With Bloggers

During my early years as a blogger, I wondered what it would be like to sit among other like-minded individuals in the blogging world. So here I am, this year, with lots of breakfast, lunch/brunch and dinners with other bloggers and I gotta say, what an awesome experience! Some bloggers are very different in person from what I actually thought they’d be like according to their posts and online voice. And others, like the below crew, are exactly the same offline as they present themselves online. When they’re exactly the same, I have to admit I get such a feel-good feeling. It’s wonderful to see that realness and authenticity come to life. So here’s what happens during brunch with bloggers: Bloggers – Left to right: YesMissy – Cat Forsley – Dianas Healthy Living – Maggie Adhami – ME – Shoetease What Happens During Brunch With Bloggers Last month I met up with…

Long Weekend Ready with Dixie Outlet Mall

The wait for the long weekend is over! *insert happy dance* That one extra day of having my husband home makes a world of a difference. It means I get to do so much more than I usually do on the weekends. The weather has been really topsy turvy and because of that I opted for a long weekend ready outfit from Dixie Outlet Mall that would work in rain or shine. How To Get Long Weekend Ready with Dixie Outlet Mall… We often forget the power of the sun and being outdoors for long periods of time can get you sun burnt. I keep my make-up to a minimal on a long weekend. Just don’t want to be bothered with spending hours applying it just to take it off again. Best fashion accessory to hide behind is a cute hat of course! I got this hat from Ardene and…

Spring Cleaning For a Wardrobe Refresh [Fashion]

Spring flowers are blooming, people are gardening and the spring trends have started to roll into all of our favourite stores! Over the years, I’ve collected so many clothes, to a borderline hoarder point. I have an excessive amount of clothes that I haven’t worn in years. This made me realise it was time for a Spring cleaning wardrobe refresh.   Spring Cleaning For a Wardrobe Refresh… My goal for a wardrobe refresh was to add more neutrals to my closet and get rid of all the clothes that were colours, prints or designs I couldn’t  see myself wearing again. Out with old, in with new! Dixie Outlet Mall has some great options for a Spring wardrobe refresh! Keeping in mind the colours I was looking for and the looks I wanted to create, it made my shopping experience so much easier. We often go shopping with little or no thought…

Netflix & Chill [Shopping]

Netflix & Chill Roughly two weeks ago I announced something on Twitter! In case you missed it: https://twitter.com/HumaraKausar/status/827290093660561408 I’m so excited to be an ambassador of Dixie Outlet Mall, which means I’ll be sharing lots of #DixieDeals across all of my platforms! Hint* make sure you’re following me. It’s been just about a year since we moved into our new house, and the living room has become one of the most important, if not the most important room in the house. We spend so much time here, from watching Netflix to cuddling/playing with baby D. We needed to make sure this room was comfy and cozy. The challenge was that our schedules have been super crazy since we moved in, so it’s been hard to find the time to spruce up the place. Enter Dixie Outlet Mall to the rescue! We headed to the Winners first to see what #DixieDeals we could…

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…

5 ways to wear a womens necktie

You may have seen the womens necktie at Zara (Which was first $20, then $10 and now on sale for $3.99), magazines and dare I say, the Kardashians. Aside from those places, I’m sure if you asked your mom, aunt and any working woman from the 70’s/80’s, she’ll tell you that the womens necktie is a spin off of the pussy bow blouse. So these ties we’re rocking in 2015/16, are really a tribute to the boss ladies of the 80’s. Nice. Check out the documentary – Makers: Women Who Make America, a three-hour documentary on the history of modern feminism that aired on PBS. Meg Whitman, CEO of Hewlett-Packard said:  “We used to dress in suits with a skirt and a jacket with button-down shirts and a little bow tie, because that was sort of our interpretation of the man’s tie…It was our attempt to be feminine but fit into what was then…

How to style a chunky cardigan

I should really change the title to “How I styled my chunky cardigan”  but a how to sounds so much better. I got your attention didn’t I? I love chunky sweaters and cardigans. Like wearing a cozy blanket. Chunky sweaters can be really heavy and overpowering when trying to pair with accessories or other clothes. Chunky cardigans are easier. Not as heavy, still cozy and you get to show what you’re wearing under your cardigan. I love dressing comfortably. Whoever said you can’t be comfortable and fashionable at the same time was wrong.  Easy as.. 1. You need a chunky sweater/cardigan 2. Skinny jeans/leggings 3. A statement accessory << For more inspiration check out this outfit >> High waist jeans: F21 // Shoes: Kate Spade Keds // Crop turtleneck: F21 // Chunky Cardigan: No Name from Korea // Satchel purse: French Connection
