Broke Businesswoman

I bet you’ve had a few amazing ideas pop into your head in the last hour, 2 hours, 24 hours.

I hear ya, trust me I do. I bet I can guess the next words to come out of your mouth, “I would but I don’t have the money”, or some variation of that.

I’ve set out to start not one but two businesses while working full-time and being the mother of a wild, adventurous, imaginative, adorable (sorry I’m a proud mother) daughter. Continue reading Broke Businesswoman

In Simplest Terms….I Failed

Last week I made an attempt to accessorize my outfits for 6 days.

I know I was supposed to have all this wonderful info about how great the rest of my accessorizing week went but truthfully that’s not what this post is about.

This is how I successfully failed to finish my week of accessorizing.


WEDNESDAY


It’s wasn’t actually a terrible day. I managed to add some gold accessories to my outfit. A really cute anklet from Forever 21, it was a simple one strand with a fishtail chain pattern. A simple gold chain necklace and my rose gold glasses (although I opted not to wear the glasses when I got to work). I really though I was finally getting into the groove of accessorizing. I felt great and was so excited for the next day.


THURSDAY


My optimism was great on Wednesday, my cold was greater on Thursday. I woke up with a crazy cold I could barely get myself out of bed and the idea of even picking an outfit was tiring and put me in the midst of a toddler’s temper tantrum. I slapped some tights on and put a bit on concealer under my eyes and off to work I went. Sick and sleepy I slowly walked to the end of the driveway and hopped into an Uber (there was no way I was gonna walk today).


FRIDAY/SATURDAY


I completely gave up on my accessorizing by this point. I was sick and all I could imagine doing was sleeping. I was home by 6:15 and in bed by 7:30/8:00. Waking up was something my brain was wired to do and getting dressed was such a mindless activity that by the time I got to work on Friday I didn’t even realize I had picked out clothes. On Saturday I went to my friends house, we hung out and gossiped and laughed, Got some killer ice cream and ate some delicious salmon. I went home and curled up completely content with the fact failed my week of accessorizing. I didn’t want to do this by force, I truthfully wanted to try to add some life in my minimal outfits with some accessories but even though I didn’t make it. I really enjoyed the attempt.

Hello Lovelies,

October is almost over so I really wanted to talk about some of my favourite products for the month.

My makeup purchase have been a bit lax for the last few months but I spent on the things that I really wanted (while of course restocking things that I really needed).

1 Shirt 3 Ways: Ruffle Top

Hey My Lovelies,

Today I wanted to share a few easy looks I created using a new shirt I bought for the fall. I fell in love with ruffles over the last season and I really wanted to include one piece to my wardrobe with the trend.  Continue reading 1 Shirt 3 Ways: Ruffle Top

GenBeauty Toronto

Why hello again,

Felicia and I had the pleasure of going to Generation Beauty last week (I know we are posting this WAY late) and what an amazing time it was. It’s always nice to get together and remember that before we became business partners we were just best friends. It was also nice to take a little break from business and work and just enjoy all the amazing brands.  Continue reading GenBeauty Toronto
