Pink & Green...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

What's white and pink and green all over? Well, me, apparently... But looking like a total watermelon is a small price to pay to the summer Gods, am I right? So keep the sunshine coming, and I'll stand in front of every bright green wall I can find! I know, I know, I'm such an altruist...

Happy Thursday, lovelies! xx

Wardrobe Wednesday...


I can't get enough of these sunnies lately... I don't know if it's the colours, styles or what, but I'm all about them, all the time. It's come to the point where I just want to buy more and more varieties, until my bag is brimming with eyewear options for every mood and occasion... Take these Forever 21 sunnies (above) that I bought last week for example — the colour is phenom, and I love the rounded, vintage shape. Plus they were super cheap  ($6.80!), which is always fine by me. Similarly, I have mad love for my H&M Against AIDS Zach Morris-inspired shades (can you blame me?!) as well as my trusty Karen Walkers, so I'll spare you the additional sunglass-related gushing and just quit while I'm ahead...

Happy Wednesday, love bugs! xx

I'm kinda a big fan of crop tops, especially when they hail from decades past... Nothing beats an original (sorry, American Apparel), so scouring the racks of my local Value Village becomes something of an olympic sport where crop tops are concerned. This one was a prized-find last summer, when I scooped it up for only a couple of dollars in Victoria. And with the weather being as lovely as it currently is, I couldn't think of a better item to thrown on with shorts... Let the sun shine. xx

Fancy Fine...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Good morning, lovelies! Today is already shaping up to be one of those days where I struggle to keep up with my scary-long to-do list, so this post is going to be short and sweet... In fact, I'll just leave you with this weekend's humble realization: I'm officially obsessed with trousers. I've worn them before, but it took me a while to officially get on board (what can I say, I like dresses!). But now I'm here and I'm loving it... Thoughts? You guys are waaay cooler than me so you probably reached this conclusion eons ago, but hey, better late than never, right?

Deserted Island Essentials...


If, knock on wood, I should find myself stranded on a lonely deserted island someday, I would pray for an unlimited supply of ice cream, the company of my mister, a magical Internet connection (obvi) and my trusty cosmetics bag... Hey, a girl's got to look her best, right? And if the deserted island Gods would be kind enough to send some toothpaste my way, well, that would be ace. But back to business: we're talking beauty essentials here, people!

For me, nothing beats smooth skin and a defined eye, so you can imagine where my beauty allegiance lies, but a classic red lip and mani are pretty sweet as well... So without further ado, here's what I would hope to have in a Gilligan's Island-type situation:

1. Aveeno Active Naturals sunscreen (gotta practice safe sun!)
2. Sephora Collection Eye Liner
3. MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Powder (no shiny t-zone for this island dweller!)
4. NARS Sheer Glow Foundation
5. CoverGirl LashBlast Mascara (in this case, I'm thinking waterproof...)
6. MAC lipstick in 'Lady Bug'
7. Butter London nail polish in 'Come to Bed Red' (oh baby!)
8. The almighty Kiehl's Lip Balm #1 (it's magical)

What would you wish for if you were stranded on a deserted island? Spill! xx

Wardrobe Wednesday // Instagram Edition

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

I love shopping as much as the next girl, but I've been trying to cutback a bit this month as a bit of a personal challenge... Now I know you must be thinking 'Wow, she must really hate herself,' but I assure you, I do not... I just wanted to try my hand at reducing my clothing consumption while making more out of what I already have. And although I've picked up a couple things here and there (see my Forever 21 jewelry haul above!), it feels pretty darn good saving money for a change... Go figure.

So for this week's Wardrobe Wednesday I thought it best to focus on some cherished accessories and my new favourite store, with only minimal attention paid (no pun!) to new purchases... I must be turning a new leaf or something! xx

Clockwise from top: Clothing & amazing oxfords from Loft 82; skull bracelet from H&M Against AIDS (so cute!); a few of my fave lip colours from Joe Fresh, Revlon & Sephora; a super old nail polish DIY on old H&M rings; my House of Harlow bangle and new Forever 21 bracelet; my latest jewelry haul from Forever 21; a nail polish DIY I did for the Edmonton Journal

Past Meets Present...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Well hello there, lovelies! And happy long weekend Monday... If you're reading this, I'm probably driving home from Calgary, where I spent a lovely weekend catching up with family. Well, at  least past Vickie hopes so... You'll have to confirm that with future Vickie after the weekend's over ;)

Hope everyone had a fab weekend! xx

Inspiration || Pastels


Now I don't know about you guys, but I've gone completely gaga over pastels this year... And if you don't believe me, just check out my Pinterest account — it's literally bursting with the stuff! I'm not really sure what's come over me, but I just want to layer myself in soft, girlie hues while I paint my nails in the candy colours I relished in when I was 12... I guess trends really are cyclical, huh?

Happy Friday, love bugs! xx

Light Bright...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Bonjour! I thought I would go for a little in-your-face colour blocking today to brighten things up... You likey? I hadn't worn this dress in a while, and this blazer has been the apple of my eye since I bought it a few weeks ago, so pairing the two felt like a no-brainer... After all, the brighter the better, right? Tah for now, darlings! xx

Wardrobe Wednesday...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Believe it or not, but sometimes I get more enjoyment from buying cute little accessories than full-on outfits... I don't know what it is, but there's a certain promise that comes from scouting the perfect scarf or a pop-of-colour-packed belt — Like you've cleverly found a way to stretch your wardrobe and spice up those tired-old tops and dresses... And for someone who's now on a self-imposed shopping ban (I know, crazy right?!), that's pretty darn appealing. xx

Summer's Eve...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Summer is in the air, and I for one couldn't be more excited to frolic the fairer months away in light layers, decorative sandals and no-fuss makeup... And the most exciting part? Somewhere out there awaits a patio, complete with fish tacos and margaritas with my name on it... Bring it on, summer!

Happy Monday, sugarplums! xx

Light as a Feather...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Question: Did you guys ever play 'light as a feather, stiff as a board' when you were kids? I guess the feather print on this Forever 21 dress reminded me of those early days on the playground, where we hopelessly willed ourselves to float in thin air between breaks from the monkey bars or daisy chain-making... Oh, the good old days. Well needless to say, it didn't really happened for us — I guess eight-year-old Vickie's levitating skills never quite kicked in... At least I'll always have this feather dress though, right?
