Fall Fall Fall

Here's a recent fall look of mine! It was so much fun, and I got a lot of compliments on this look during Thanksgiving. I'm all about being girly but with a edgy twist, and I think this outfit did just that!
Turtlenecks for me are a major staple for fall/winter time. I don't do well with the cold, so I always bundle up as much as possible haha. This cropped cheetah turtleneck is super cute and is from Primark. Who says skirts are only for summertime? This is an old high waisted skirt of mine that worked perfectly with this outfit. It was from Stitches and is wayyy old (can't tell right?). Since I didn't have a pair of over-the-knee boots (which I need to invest in) I opted for a heel/long socks combo. The key is making sure that both shades of black match! These socks are from Primark. They are really cute and feminine having the bow hanging down at the back, but also a bit edgy with the black colour and texture.

Summer in Autumn

Here is a recent look I posted, back when the autumn weather was feeling a bit more like summer and little less like winter.

I love this top- I think it is so pretty and feminine, and I like all the pastel colours in it. It was $10 from Suzy Shier. It is hard to see in the photo (I should have moved my hair) but the back of the shirt is cut into a low V. The pants are also from Suzy Shier and were $5. These pants are very stretchy and jegging-like and the brown is perfect for fall. Finally, the blue wedges are from Payless Shoes and are American Eagle. I thought the blue wedge paired very nicely with the outfit and brought out some of the blue accents in the shirt!

Every effort matters

I can't believe how bad I've been at posting lately. It's been almost 2 weeks since my last post... Time flies. 

I'm kinda zonked right now *yes zonked is a word if you're wondering* so I leave you with this:


Don't ever discredit yourself. Some people may not understand or appreciate how hard you're working, but your efforts do matter! Everyone's different, and for some people, even just getting out of bed can be tough. Keep pushing, and remember to reward yourself for your accomplishments along the way, even as small as they may seem!

Sky full of stars

Hi!! Wow I have been lacking in the posts as of late, I've just been so busy! Here's a look from last week when we had some beautiful weather. It felt like summer but in fall! I guess Mother Nature is trying to make up for summer? Not sure if I forgive her just yet. Anyway, this was a very simple and feminine look but felt very fun at the same time!
The sparkly blue crop top was $5 from Forever 21. The cheetah skirt was $10 from H&M and has been featured in many of my outfits (as you may have noticed) because it is super versatile and can be paired with a variety of things. The heels are from The Shoe Company. Click above to hype this look!

Macaroons!

Last week for the first time ever, I tried making macaroons. What I thought was going to be a horrible mess, actually turned out to be amazing! I got a ton of good reviews and I definitely will be making more of them in the future!


For these macaroons you will need:

-3 1/2 egg whites 
-1/2 cup of granulated sugar
-1 tsp of vanilla extract 
-2 1/2 cups of unsweetened shredded coconut
-1/2 cup of chocolate chips 

Mix together the egg whites, sugar and vanilla in a bowl. Beat this for approximately 2 minutes until it appears almost bubbly. Add in the shredded coconut and chocolate chips slowly making sure every part is moistened. Then take small scoops and roll them onto a greased baking sheet.

*Note: if it is very sticky and moist while rolling the balls this is okay! It can get a bit messy though. Rolling isn't entirely necessary, I just wanted to avoid them from falling apart! Finally, bake at 325F for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Take them out of the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet.

That's it!! Simple eh? Mine have been in the fridge now for 5 days and still taste great! 

I hope you enjoy this recipe and make some tasty treats! These could be a perfect little dessert to add for thanksgiving :)

EPIC WEEKEND

This was Tuesday's look. Very relaxed and cool but chic at the same time, no? I love fall! Such a beautiful time of year. Please hype below if you like this :)
The EPIC WEEKEND shirt was $4 from H&M and is super cute. My jeans are an old pair that I bought for $15 from Garage. I am loving ripped denim right now, and am actually working on a pair of my own which I will hopefully be posting soon! The grey cardigan is from Primark.
