[OUTFIT] Time to Bundle Up Again...

Well that brief warm weekend was nice while it lasted. It was pretty inevitable that it would cool right down again. I'm not complaining about the sun finally making an appearance though! From the day I started working at UO in september, I've wanted this sweater! I couldn't bring myself to get it, but when it finally went on sale, I jumped at the opportunity! I really should have taken a photo of the back as well...sorry!

[OUTFIT] Spring in January

Spring in January is a very accurate title for this look! Yes I've paired my flower crown with my floral print jeans, but as most of you know, in Ottawa it is a whooping 5 degrees celsius! Which is really unheard of for this time of year. To celebrate, I decided to go for this rather dark spring inspired outfit. Unfortunately, it isn't spring yet. I'm sure it'll get very cold again soon enough, and there will be lots more snow to come. If only it could just stay mild like this until actual spring, right?

I've made a recent discovery of this gal band called HAIM, and I am OBSESSED! They're from LA, and all their songs are so catchy you just have to sing along. I watched their video for their song Forever. In the scenes in the salon, I could not stop looking at the dance moves the sister on the right is doing (black skirt and bralette, from the description in the bands Wiki page, I want to say it's Este). I just wish I could contact her to let her know that we have the same dance moves! Too freaking badass.


[OUTFIT] Pattern Mixing

I finally decided to style the dress my brother got me for Christmas! It's a little bit short, like every other dress in the world is on me, but I'll make it work! I also decided to try a little pattern mixing. It's definitely a difficult thing to do! But I think I pulled it off? It's still subtle enough...

[BEAUTY] Sephora Mini Haul

As you might of seen in one of my last posts, I got some Sephora gift cards for Christmas from Owen, and his parents. I had some time yesterday, and thought I'd take a look around. I've been wanting a nude/peachy lipstick for a while now. I was thinking of getting Honolulu Honey by Nars, but that colour washed me out way too much! I then noticed Barbarella by Nars, and thought I'd give it a try. I thought it looked perfect! Just a really simple colour. I've been wanting a Nars lipstick for a long time as well, so when this colour worked for me, it was the perfect opportunity.

I always check out the Sephora mini eyeshadow pallets, but often find there too many colours that wouldn't be useful to me. This one was in the store yesterday, and it was a dream come true! All the basic nudes and browns sort of makes me think of the Urban Decay Naked pallet. I decided to go with this one because of the colours, the fact that there are some lip colours and blush, and that it was only $18!

Please excuse my gross looking hair...I'm in dire need of a bang trim...

2013 has arrived! Like most of you probably did, I slept a lot today. Anyway, on with this month's challenge! I saw this video and was inspired to do the same type of thing. So every day of this month, I'm going to take a short clip of random things I may encounter during the day. Of course it won't end up being as long, but if I'm a roll, I might do it for the whole year, we shall see...But at the end of the month, I'm going to compile them all together and share with you guys on February 1st!
