[BEAUTY] Sephora Finds

Now, I've noticed that most of my posts these past few months have just been outfit posts. I've got to remember to mix it up every once in a while! I was a Sephora today to pick up some lashes for my costume, but I also browsed around for a little while. I found this compact blush and bronzer on sale for $9. I'm not much of a bronzer wearer, but I really liked the colour of the blush. For $9, I thought it was still worth it. (Sorry it's kind of hard to tell what the colours are really...I have really poor lighting, and I couldn't get it right). I also just grabbed a new bottle of Oscar Blandi's dry shampoo. If you don't know about it, I definitely recommend it! Especially now having bangs, when they get a little greaser, but not ready for a full wash, this stuff does the trick.

[OUTFIT] Mustard&Burgundy

I've realized that I've worn this same necklace in my past 3 looks...I'm terribly sorry about that. But isn't it pretty badass? 

I gave in to the pleated maxi skirt from UO. I wasn't sure for the longest time, because I thought it was slightly too short (on me...) but after trying it for the third time, and after it had gone on sale, I decided to get it. I got it a couple of sizes bigger, so I can wear it lower on my waist/hips, thus then being long enough.

[OUTFIT] Fall Floral

Guuuuuyzz, I'm so quirky (second photo) like it's too much. Just kidding...any way! There were lots of new things on sale at Urban the other day. One of my coworkers told me to wait a little and that I could get this dress for a better deal. I didn't want to miss out, so I got it! I still got half off though. Of course, it's not the more fall/winter-esque type dress, but it's good for layering! 

Trippy twirly pic!

[FASHION] Iggy Azalea for House Of Holland Sunglasses

I saw this posted on Refinery29, and had to share. This has to be one of my favourite spreads I've seen in a VERY long time. The big frames and bold colours stand out so much from her slicked back blond hair. What else is there to say besides the fact that she looks freaking badass!

[VIDEO] Favourite YouTube Fashion Vloggers

I thought I'd put together my favourite YouTube vloggers! YAY! I've recently discovered some new ones, and thought it would be great to share with y'all! I'll have the links to their channel underneath the video presented. Be sure to check them all out!

Jenn from clothesencounters has to be my all time favourite vlogger. All of her videos are so unique. She has such a flawless sense of style, beautiful makeup, and amazing camera presences. She essentially is a perfect fit to be a fashion vlogger, and she totally seems like the biggest sweetheart.

Yes...I only discovered Rhiannon today, but I can already tell she's fabulous! She's got a certain style that combines cute and grungy the most perfect way. I thought it was suitable to post the swap video she did with clothesencounters, since it was the way I found out about her.

The Fashion Statement's (part of the channel The Platform) videos are usually short and sweet. She's got some great tips and simple DIY's perfect for anyone.

The Fashion Citizen twins have to be thrift shopping queens. They always have such good luck when then go on their goodwill haul's. They do live in Arizona, so for us Canadians, some of the trends may not be the most accurate for the chilly weather we get, but we can always dreams that it'll be summer forever.

5. Essiebutton

The fact that you don't find many CANADIANS vlogging/blogging (or at least I'm having a hard time finding them...) I felt it necessary to add Essiebutton! Someone commented on this post, and I felt it absolutely necessary to add her after checking out a few of her videos. She mostly vlogs about various beauty products and tips, but that's still fashion related, right?

[OUTFIT] (Not So) Fall Colours

And so, it's already October. How did that happen? Either way, the weather today went from being bearable, to quite chilly. Apparently, this is also the time I decide I want to wear more dresses. It's Saturday night, I stayed in because I worked late and rather tired after being at work. Facebook is a bore and a frustration because everyone is enjoying their Thanksgiving dinners (it's this weekend here in Canada) and I'm really just craving some turkey. Instead? I thought I'd finally make an outfit post for you guys. Enjoy!
