Summer Décor 🌿

Hello!

As many of you may know, one of my favourite things to do each season is to re-decorate my bedroom.

I just get so excited to reorganize and add my own little theme. My spring/summer theme is definitely green and white!

I’ve been posting my favourite tidbits on Instagram, but I figured some (or lots) of you don’t follow me there so I thought I’d share them on here too! If you want to follow my Instagram you can do so by clicking here 😊

I will start with what inspired my whole room redecorating in the first place: the Coconut Leaves candle from Bath and Body Works.

This candle has been lit in my room every chance I get. The smell is so fresh and summery. It puts me in the best mood when I light it! I have to keep myself from buying more from Bath and Body Works haha! I may or may not have a small candle obsession…

Speaking of Bath and Body Works, I’ve been using their Mint Mojito foaming hand soap. I am getting low on this one so I may need to stock up…

Not only does it smell delicious but it also has coconut oil in it to keep my hands soft.

Like I said, green and white are my favourite right now. Even when I pick a soap bottle I’m matching it to my room dΓ©cor! πŸ˜†

I’ve been keeping my bedding fairly simple now that the warmer weather has hit. I feel like Fall and winter are the months where I like to pack on the pillows, and then Spring and Summer I lighten up on them.

This little Cactus pillow is from Forever 21, but from last years selection. I love how bright it is and the cartoony design is refreshing. It’s made from a canvas material so it’s strong and durable. I love havingΒ fancy bedding, but I hate worrying about staining things, or them falling apart.

My last and most favourite piece is this little china jewelry holder. My Aunty gave it to me and this is in my room all year round! πŸ˜† She knows me so well and knows my love of vintage. πŸ’• It’s the best place to put my favourite rings, necklaces and even my favourite makeup items so I always know where they are when I’m on the go.

I hope everyone is having a lovely week so far!

Outfit For A Day on the Boat πŸ³

Hello loves!

I know the first day of summer isn’t for another month, but today feels pretty darn close!

We are going on the first boat ride of the season today and I am so excited. 🐳

I really am a country girl at heart and going out into nature is my favourite way to unplug, relax, and find some quiet time.

I wanted to do a quick little outfit of the day since I’m wearing one of my favourite lazy-lounging outfits. Does anyone else have that? Outfits that are super comfy but dressier than sweats or PJ’s? I feel like I always go for them. πŸ˜†

I am also just realized that I’m basically dressed head to toe in H&M or Forever 21. πŸ˜…

No makeup day today. 😘

Hat: H&M

Jean Shirt: Forever 21

Pink T-shirt: H&M

Sweat Pants: Forever 21

Shoes: Denver Hayes

Watch: Fit Bit (gotta count those steps!)

Time to hit the water! πŸ³πŸŽ‰

If you live in Canada I hope you have a fabulous May Long Weekend 😊

And everyone else in the world have a wonderful Saturday too!

Forever 21 Haul + How-to Style

Hello loves,

Until after Christmas I was on a no spending regime, which to be honest was very difficult but healthy for my wallet.

Now that it is after Christmas I let myself splurge a little bit, and hit up Park Royal in the city for a tad retail therapy.

My favourite place to shop is definitely Forever 21, so I thought I would show you the items I purchased and how I plan on styling them.

To start I picked up a gorgeous denim shirt. It’s very thin and soft denim so it’s nothing like the jeans that we wear. It’s also faded adding to the softness. Honestly I bought this because Rachel from F.r.i.e.n.d.s is my absolute favourite, and watching season 1 she rocked so many denim shirts I just had to pick this up. This shirt was on sale for $7 CAD. total bargain!

I am styling this with a high pony and bow, as well as simple jewelry and work boots. I also picked up some good old black tights.

I always need black tights so I decided to grab 2 pairs. Plus anytime I find tights at Forever 21 with a thick waist band I need them. Both cost $6 CAD each.

The last item I picked up was this beautiful coral sweater. This was the most ‘pricy’ item of the haul at $12 CAD, which is definitely still a deal!Β  Thankfully my mum was there to help me pick out the right colour for me. I initially was in love with a mustard yellow one but that colour washes me out like no other.

For this I plan on styling it casual but still well put together. Immediately I knew my vintage Hollister jeans would be perfect, as well as some simple geometric jewellery. Since this outfit is full of warm tones I’m sticking to gold jewelry and warm colours.I’ll definitely pair this with some cute sneakers and a top knot bun.

As always thanks for stopping by!
