so this is my backpack, its the black fjallraven kanken in the regular size. and i LOVE it so so so much! it looks pretty small, but it can fit a lot inside and it has many pockets and pouches. i have to wear a uniform at my school, so my backpack is one of the ways i express myself style wise!Screen Shot 2018-08-20 at 2.15.03 PM

so here are the items in my kanken…

 

p e n c i l    c a s e  –  this is pretty self-explanatory, but i have a pencil case with a bunch of pens, markers, pencils, & highlighters!

w a t e r   b o t t l e  –  its really important to stay hydrated during school, so i like having a water bottle in my back pack.

c h a r g e r  –  this is a must have if you are allowed to bring any devices to your school!

l a p t o p  –  at my school we can bring our own laptops or use the schools devices. i just bring my one from home.

h a n d s a n t i z e r  –  another essential because theres lots of germs at school.

s n a c k s  –  i love having a pack of gum and a bag of chips in my backpack incase i get hungry!

h a n d c r e a m   &   l i p b a l m   e t c  –  hygiene products are a must bring to school!

e a r b u d s  –  i sometimes take the bus home from school, so these are a lifesaver!!

i p h o n e  –  my school isn’t very strict about us bringing our phones to school, so bring yours if you’re allowed to.

b o o k s  –  pretty self-explanatory, bring binders, notebooks, etc.

 

thank you so much for reading! don’t forget to read claras post!

what are some of your essentials?

a look book – collab!

hello! i hope you all are having an amazing weekend! mine has been pretty laid back, today we went to the lake & had a bbq. tomorrow i’m going to volunteer at a local market, which will be fun!

anyways, today is a collab with the amazing ella over at purelyella! she is one of the first bloggers i followed and i love reading her inspiring posts! she blogs about fashion, bullet journaling, and so much more!! definitely go check out her blog, she is such a sweet girl & i loved collaborating with her!

so i went to vancouver a few days ago, and the majority of these pieces are from that trip. i was thinking of doing a vancouver haul, but you guys would have already seen them in this post haha! i’m going to new york in a few months ( for my birthday, i’m so excited!!! ) and i’ll probably end up buying a ton of items. i’m thinking of combining my vancouver & new york haul, because this look book doesn’t feature all the items i purchased! comment down below if you would rather me combine the hauls or have individual ones. also, if you have been to new york, let me know of some good restaurants, shops, and sights to see!

now onto the post!

top  –  brandy melville

bottoms  –  zara

necklace  –  my mums

 

this is the first outfit, and i think its my favourite! i love the simplicity of it. the mom jeans are from zara, and i really like the wash! i have been searching for the perfect pair of mom jeans and i think i finally found them! they are so comfortable and the perfect colour! the cropped white tank is from brandy melville. i know its really simple, but i love it so much! i like the detailing around the neckline, it really adds to the shirt!

top  –  brandy melville ( bought from depop )

bottoms  –  zara ( also bought from depop )

necklace  –  my mums

 

i also really like this second look! i purchased the top and pants off of depop. if you don’t know what depop is, its an app where you can buy mainly used clothing from. i have purchased many item from there and i love it! i’m also going to be selling some pieces there too, so stay tuned!! anyways, i absolutely adore the top! it ties up at the top and is kinda cropped. the pants are really comfortable and cute!

i think that this is such a cute outfit! i thrifted the shorts and i love them! they are really comfortable and are perfect for a picnic.  i really love the black wrap top! it has lots of potential because you can dress it up or down, wear it to the beach or for dinner! and the lace top beneath it is so cute!

four things with jasper and frankie

hello lovelies! i hope you all are having a great sunday. i’m sorry that i haven’t posted in a while, my summer has been full of activities and i haven’t managed to blog as frequently as i originally hoped. however i have some exciting posts planned!! anyways, today i am collaborating with one of my favourite bloggers frankie over at frankiedotb. i love her blog so so so much! the design is beautiful, her photos are so lovely, and her posts are so thoughtful and original! she blogs about fashion, food, design & so much more! go check out her blog here!

anyways, we thought we would share four things that we are loving right now, here are mine!

 

m a g a z i n e s

i have recently been really into magazines, my favourites being frankie and uppercase. here are a few of my favourite pages from each.

Screen Shot 2018-07-25 at 11.15.58 AM

a few days ago i picked up my first frankie magazine, and fell in love! the design is so amazing, the illustration is gorgeous, and the articles are so great, i just love it! for the longest time i thought that you couldn’t purchase them in canada, and was so jealous of all my friends in australia, england, america and new zealand that could read them. then i went to london drugs (a a little grocery store in canada ) and found one! i was so happy.

Screen Shot 2018-07-25 at 11.15.46 AM

uppercase is full of beautiful illistrations, creative crafts, gorgeous products, and articles mainly focused on art & design. it has so many unique craft ideas and i feel so inspired when i read it! i really love the water colours ( featured in the third picture ) and am planning to try and paint some similar to them!!

 

j u l y    p l a y l i s t

my second pick is my july playlist. i am in love with each and every song found on this playlist. here are a few favourites…

coffee by beabadoobee  –  such a beautiful song, the lyrics are so thoughtful and the song is really well constructed. i love this artist so much, her songs are so creative!

b.o.m.d. by clairo  –  this song is so clever and absolutely gorgeous, i love any song by clairo

afraid by mimi  –  i have been watching mimi on yt for quite a while now and i was so happy when she started writing music! i love her voice, its so beautiful

o u t f i t

my next favourite is this outfit, its super casual, but still cute. my top is from brandy melville, and its amazing. i’ve worn it so many times and i just love it so much! you can’t really tell from the photos, but it has pretty little white flower detailing all over it. i thrifted these shorts. they were only $2! originally they were mom jeans, but i cut them and made them into shorts. i love the wash of these. and finally, my shoes are from converse. they are plain white & really comfortable.

*   thanks raf for helping me out with this photo haha

 

b r e a k f a s t

and finally, my last pick is breakfast, my favourite meal of the day! i love starting my day off right with a nutritious meal, and here are some of my favourites!

Here are three places that I would love to visit!

Enjoy!!

x x x  Jasper

Screen Shot 2018-06-19 at 5.24.33 PM

The first place that I would love to visit is Venice in Italy. I actually travelled to Italy two years ago ( and loved it ) I have visited Venice before when I was younger, but I don’t really remember it so would really enjoy visiting it again. Anyways, Venice looks amazing! The canals look so gorgeous, and oh not to mention the food!!

Screen Shot 2018-06-19 at 5.24.48 PM

Another place that I would love to visit is Croatia! I would love to walk on the city walls of Dubrovnik and go swimming in the gorgeous blue waters!

Screen Shot 2018-06-19 at 5.24.57 PM

I would love to visit Peru! It looks so gorgeous! I would love to hike the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. It would be so amazing to see the old city! And the alpacas are so cute ahah.

 

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you enjoyed! Remember to read Brooke’s post

q & a pt. 2

Screen Shot 2018-06-14 at 8.53.37 PM

hello, on my instagram i asked you guys to give me some questions so you can get to know me better! i got a ton of great questions and i can’t wait to answer them. if you have been following my blog for a while, you would know that i posted a q & a  a couple months ago. if you would like to read that, you can find it here! anyways, lets get onto the questions!

girl.who.blogs   asks –

what  inspires your blog posts?  –  i am inspired by my fellow bloggers! everyday, i look forward to reading their posts. i am also inspired by photos on instagram and pinterest, as well images in magazines

 

what’s your favourite(s) kind of flower(s)? 🌸  –  i really, really like peonies, they are just so gorgeous and smell amazing. i also love roses, daisies, and daffodils. i have a post about flowers, you can read it here. ooops shameless self promo…Screen Shot 2018-04-07 at 9.12.06 AM

 

 

rafstheticallypleasing   asks –

what is your zodiac sign and do you think you match up to it?   –  i just checked and i am sagittarius. i was never really into horoscopes, but i find them interesting!

some sagittarius traits are :  likes travelling, optimistic, impatient, seeks freedom, loves exploring, aren’t afraid to take risks, and are creative.

i guess i do have a bunch of these traits! i pretty much have all of these characteristics.

lovecarlyallison  asks –

best advice for anything!!  –  i’m going to talk about blogging! about a year ago, i wasn’t happy with where my blog was at. i didn’t enjoy the posts i put up, feeling like my blog didn’t reflect the “real me.” i was posting things that i knew you guys would like, not what i would like. i took a break from blogging, and when i returned, i started to post things i was proud of. now, i am finally happy with my blog and its content! i enjoy writing blog posts and i feel more like myself. moral of the story, don’t be afraid to be yourself and be unique! don’t feel like you have to put up certain posts just to impress people.

 

greta.josephine   asks –

what is your dream travel destination?  –  i would love to travel to croatia. i’ve been looking at so many photos of the gorgeous country. the beaches look stunning, the food looks amazing, and the people look so friendly! and of course i would love to visit australia, france, india and iceland again! theres so many places out there!

 

wontonabbey  asks –

quotes you live by?  –  here are a few…

karenwodstrup    asks –

if you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?  –  if i could change one thing about the world, i would get rid of hunger. every ten seconds, a child dies of starvation. it breaks my heart knowing that this happens all around the world.

 

dominiquereneemodeling  asks –

whats your favourite things to do in the summer?  –  my favourite thing to do in the summer is to hang out with friends! i love going down to the beach and having a pic nic with my best friends!!

 

wildslifeblog  asks –

what languages do you speak?  –  i can speak a little bit of german and french, and i’m learning mandarin!

 

elle.boatley  asks –

what is your dream job?  –  in the future, i would love to be a doctor of some sorts. maybe a neurologist. however, i am also interested in design, art and fashion, so i don’t know where i’ll end up!

 

thank you for reading, and thanks for those for asking me questions!
