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.
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.
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

thank you so much for reading this, i really hope you enjoyed! and remember to go check out frankie’s post, i loved collaborating with her! if any of you would like to collab in the future, send me a dm, email me, or simply leave a comment!

Hello lovelies! Since you all (hopefully) enjoyed last weeks favourites post, I decided to post another!
If you guys would like to see more of these blog posts, leave a comment down below 🙂
First up is my ” wreck this journal” for Indigo. It cost $20.99 CAD. For those that don’t know what a wreck this journal is, it is a book with instructions on each page on how to destroy it. I decided instead of wrecking it, to make it more of an art journal. I love this book so much and I definitely recommend it.
Next is my polaroid camera. I have the Instax Mini 8, in the colour of “baby blue” It cost $100 CAD and the images turn out great. The film is relatively expensive, over $1 an photo, but the quality makes up for it. (btw I drew on the polaroid with sharpie)
This highlighter was featured in my “whats in my travel makeup bag” post. This is one of my favourite highlighters I have ever had. It is called baked highlighter by e.l.f. in the shade of moonlight pearls. I absolutely love this amount of shine that it contains. If that makes sense ahaha.
Next up are my Adidas Superstars featured in my summer ootd blogpost. They are really nice and I like that you can dress them up or down. They are also super comfortable and they are simple, so they can go with anything.
I purchased this book light at Indigo, and I absolutely love it. It says “not all those who wander are lost” and it has a clip so you can attach it to your favourite book or use it as a bookmark. I think it cost $12.99, but I’m not 100% sure.
Those are this weeks favourites!
Thank you so much for reading.

Hello lovelies! Since I am on holidays, I decided to share whats in my travel makeup bag. These are my go to makeup items, and most can be purchased at your local drugstore.
This is my travel makeup bag. It is a pretty magenta colour and is very plain and simple. I’m pretty sure I purchased it at Urban Outfitters a couple years ago, but I’m not 100% certain. I am probably going to buy another one soon, because this one is pretty old.
The first item is the Fit Me Powder by Maybelline New York. I use this on a daily basis and I love it so much! I use it to set, and it leaves your skin looking matte and even. It costs $9.99 CAD, which is a great deal.
The next thing is the by e.l.f.. It comes with a pink blush (left side) and contour/bronzer (right side) They are both of great quality and I really recommend e.l.f. products as they are very cheap. It cost $4 CAD.
I use this e.l.f. concealer on a regular basis. It provides full coverage and is of great quality. It cost $3 CAD and I purchased it in the shade “ivory”
The next item is the baked highlighter by e.l.f. in the shade of moonlight pearls. This is such a great highlighter, but I ended up using a q-tip to apply it because I forgot my brush. Haha.
I have several eyeshadow palettes, but this one is by far my favourite. It is the Tartelette Tease Clay Palette (REVIEW) I bought this palette for $30 CAD at Sephora and I absolutely adore it!
Next, is the Collossal Volume Express Mascara by Maybelline New York. This is my favourite mascara and it works so well. It makes your eyelashes look so much longer! It cost $11.99 CAD.
I use this beauty blender. It is plain black and works really well! It is pretty simple and there is not much to say about it.
I brought these three makeup brushes. The first one (far left) is for my brows, the middle one is contour and blush, and the last one is also for my brows.
The final item is this eyelash curler. I bought it from sephora and it is silver.
Thank you so much for reading! I hope you enjoyed!
p.s. I forget to take a cover image, so I decided on that one haha.
Last night I stayed up late, perched on my window sill, watching lightning light up the sky. It’s funny how something so small and simple can make me so happy. The low rumble of the thunder was calming, almost reassuring. I sat there, gazing up at the sky, waiting for a bolt of lightning to strike the earth. I love how the lightning is small, yet so powerful as it lights up the night sky. When I was in Italy, there was a huge thunderstorm. Believe whatever you want, but I swear there was at least one bolt of lightning every three seconds. I watched the storm with my family from the balcony of our hotel. I remember how the lightning lit up the sky and how we counted how many bolts we could see at once. Since our hotel was on a mountain, we could see the whole entire sky. It was so amazing and for me, one of the most memorable moments of the trip. That is when I first became fascinated with storms. Over the year, I have spent hours watching them.
Sorry that this was a shorter blog post. Hope you enjoyed!
Thanks for reading
