I took these photos two weeks ago in hopes of showcasing afew items to help you transition your wardrobe into the spring season. Then, the following day my Mom unexpectedlypassed away. The inexplicable grief I
have experienced made me put my whole life on hold. Today, I am finally feeling the strength to
blog again and I know she would want me to keep doing what I love. So here we go…
Matte nails and matte lips are a beautiful trend right
now. It is no secret that I LOVE
Jamberry Nail Wraps. For those of you
who don’t know, “Jams” are non-toxic, vinyl adhesive nail wraps that do not
chip, last up to 2 weeks on fingernails, 6 weeks on toenails. There are over
300 styles to mix and match and they are always buy 3 sheets, get one
free. You can order online or host a
party to get lots of free rewards. They just came out with their brand
new Spring/ Summer catalogue and I couldn’t be more excited about the new
When I received last month’s Jamberry Sister Style Exclusive, I
immediately fell in love with their matte floral design and went searching for the
perfect matching lip colour. Rimmel has
some great inexpensive lipsticks right now. I am usually not a huge fan of drugstore
lipsticks but I love the matte options in their “Lasting Finish” line.
That “matchy-matchy” nerd in me definitely gave way to a colour scheme for this outfit. I mixed this bright berry coloured tunic shirt from Express and
pastel pink jeans from Garage Clothing. Over the knee boots finish the look and are
great to wear from fall to spring in these chillier climates.
A new season and a new scarf. I love this one as it is not bulky but still
keeps me warm. It is easy to wear as a simple,
circular cowl. If you check out my Etsy website, you will see that I always name
my crochet patterns after someone special to me. In honour of my mother, this new design is
called “The Nancy”.
Now go call your momma and tell her you love her.
Thank you for all your support and prayers these past couple of weeks. xo
