My Obsession Monday’s: Sunnies & Glasses from BonLook

This is new territory for me as I’ve only left the 20/20 vision community in the last couple of years. Not sure if it’s the aging, starring at the computer (and my phone) hours on end or a mixture of both. Probably both.

When I started looking, I realized how difficult it was to find something that wouldn’t slide down my small nose. I probably tried on hundreds of frames before I stumbled across the Nadine at BonLook. The nose piece held up the frames, the medium size fit my longer face shape and the lenses were big enough that it covered the negative space around my eyes. I tried on all the colours that the Nadine had to offer and finally decided to go for the Pink Tortoise because it worked well with my fair skin tone. Fast forward a few months, last week I decided to go back to BonLook to get a pair of prescription sunnies too and went for the same style but in a different colour. I chose to go with the brown-tinted lense with the Bingal coloured frames. The Bingal is also like a tortoise-shell pattern but in yellow and brown. It matched really well with the brown-tinted lenses. If you have the same concerns as me, go into a BonLook next time you’re at the mall and give the Nadine a try!

Good for: Almond/oval face shape, small nose

Glasses: Nadine in Pink Tortoise 

Sunglasses: Nadine in Bingal

Colour: ‘Coral Reef’ – applied 2 coats to get the full opacity.

Where to purchase: I got it at Whole Foods or you can get it online here.

Lace Cami & Loose Cardi

The warm weather can’t come soon enough! Even though it’s May, it’s still been so chilly here in Toronto. Seems like I’m always living in layers no matter what season it is because you can never be too sure when it comes to the Canadian weather! I came across Jean Wang’s (from Extrapetite.com) Insta story when she shared these two pieces from Abercrombie & Fitch. I haven’t shopped at A&F since I was a kid and it definitely took me by surprise. I love how versatile they are and you know I’m all about versatility.

The lace cami is such a staple and can be worn on its own or with a cardi whether you want to tuck it in or leave it out. I got this in the small because I wanted it to be a looser fit and liked it so much that I recently got two more in the satin and chiffon finish as well. For the cardigan, it is in such a soft, cozy fabric and the boxy shape makes it easy to layer on with various different outfits. This top is quite cropped so I went for the medium size so it gave a bit more length.

I bought these two items before my trip to Jamaica and wore the cami with two different outfits. I’ll be sharing some photos from my trip shortly along with the outfits that I brought with me. Stay tuned!

KNOTTED SEQUIN SKIRT

Zara Wrap Sequin Skirt - 3 Ways to Style Cover.jpg

Happy Holidays!

It’s been so nice to take a little break over the holidays to spend time with family, friends and just let myself have some ‘me’ time. I’ve even been detoxing from social media too! How is 2019 right around the corner? Where did 2018 go? This year truly was a busy one and it flew by.

If you’re still looking for a NYE party outfit tomorrow or for the holiday parties that just couldn’t be squeezed into the last weeks of 2018, here’s a skirt that I love from Zara (act surprised!). It’s now on sale for $49.99 so drop by your nearest Zara store to pick one up or order online if you don’t need it until the new year. It is full of tiny sequins and let’s be real,  who doesn’t love a little sparkle! Scroll down below to see how I styled this skirt in 3 different ways.

Look #1: Party Hopper

This is a great day-to-night look as it’s appropriate for work and then at night, you can throw on a statement necklace to dress it up.

Khaki Green & Swiss Dots

MyBlancCanvas - Khaki Green and Swiss Dots.jpg

The holidays are upon us! I’ve got all my Christmas presents done and even my cards are written too so I’ve been getting the house ready for the holiday parties and figuring out my festive outfits.

During Black Friday, I came across this khaki green shirt from Zara that I thought was cute for the holidays. It has swiss dot details all over that makes it fun and I can also wear it throughout the year for work, going out or even between seasons as well. The material is so soft and the roominess makes the holiday feasting more manageable (this shirt hides it all!). I paired it with these stretchy Uniqlo white legging pants (they are so comfortable) which I don’t need to reiterate why I need to wear stretchy pants over the holidays. This white and green holiday-themed outfit is great for the party where you don’t want to go too over the top and they’re pieces you can wear more than just once a year.

Nail Love: La Moss

Vibing the deep, deep burgundy for when you’re feeling like going for a dark, rich shade.

Colour: ‘La Moss’ – applied 3 coats to get the full opacity.

Brand: Butter London – This is my first Butter London polish and I’m liking it. It lasts quite a long time. I like that they’re an 8-free polish (Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, DBP, Toluene, Camphor, Ethyl Tosylamide, Xylene, TPHP).

Where to purchase: I got it at Whole Foods for $18.99 or you can get it online here.

My Obsession Monday: Fluffy Warm Jacket

Oct 2018 - MyObsessionMonday - Fluffy Jacket Cover copy.jpg

I’m back and I know it’s been a while. I’m sorry for being MIA – I’ll fill you in on a separate post about what I’ve been up to. It’s a passion project, just like this blog!

How is it fall already?! I had to quickly switch from light, flowy summer dresses to cozy, thick fall sweaters to adapt to the chilly weather. Fall is one of my favourite seasons so this transition is good but winter, on the other hand, will be a different story.

Just picked up this new fluffy jacket from Uniqlo and I just love mixing new obsessions with old favourites. I’ve been keeping an eye on these fluffy jackets since last year but I’m glad I waited for this one. The fit is great, it’s snug so it keeps you warm and I can wear it on its own or layer it within loose fall jackets. They also come in a range of colours – 12 to be exact! Not surprising though, I went for the black because…well, it’s black! It will be easy to incorporate with other items that I already own and you can never go wrong with a neutral.

It might seem a little early to think about Christmas presents, but this little number would make a great present! It’s honestly so warm and so comfortable.
