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.

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

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.

lovin’ right now

IMG_4640.JPG

Hello! I hope you all are having an amazing day. I thought I would share a flat lay of some of my favourite things. I’ve been on a bit of a writers block. Out of ideas and inspiration, but over the summer I will make sure to post tons! I can’t wait for the summer to arrive.

Anyways, onto the items!

 

milk and honey – I have talked about this book a ton! Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur is full of poems and beautiful illustrations. It is so inspirational, I recommend giving it a read.

hoop earrings – I love these earrings so much, they are really simple, yet so elegant! I have to wear a uniform at my school, so wearing these really spice it up haha.

lomography camera – I was gifted this camera by my dad, and I love it! It is so pretty and vintagey hah. I’m not sure if it works because I haven’t gotten the chance to purchase film, but I’ll keep you posted.

lee’s mom jeans – And finally, my favourite item, my THRIFTED lee’s jeans. I have been searching for the perfect pair of mom jeans for the longest time ever, and I think I finally found them! Oh, and they were only $2! Yes I repeat, $2. I have been really into thrift shopping, I posted a thrifting tips blogpost here.

Thats all for today, I hope you enjoyed! What are some products that you are loving now? xxx Jasper

 

 

lovin’ right now

Hello! Today I am going to be sharing things that I have been lovin’! This was supposed to be an April Favourite post, but its halfway through April so I settled on things I’m lovin’ right now. School is quite busy now, lots of assignments and tests, but theres only a couple more months until summer! I cannot wait! Picnics, surfing, wearing cute clothing, hanging with friends, everything I love happens in the summer! Anyways, enough of me rambling, lets get onto the post!

fashion ✩

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

cane bag – I am OBSESSED with this cane bag! My friend brought it back from Bali for me and I have been wearing it ever since! Its perfect because it can fit your wallet, phone, camera, lip balm, sunglasses, all the essentials

levi jeans – I scored these brand new levi’s for $30! Yes I repeat, $30, they retail for $120. In Vancouver I went to winners, and saw these! I didn’t think they would fit, but they fit perfectly.

food 

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

smoothie bowls – I think I’m a little too obsessed with smoothie bowls… They are just so good! I have posted several recipes here and here, but the one pictured above is from a lovely brunch place called Cora’s. It was a spinach and mango smoothie bowl topped with coconut, chia, bananas, strawberries, and granola! Yum!

music ✩

Screen Shot 2018-04-07 at 6.12.27 PMdriving to hawaii by summer salt – I just discovered this song and I love love love it! It is so relaxing their voices are so nice!

pretty girl by clairo – I have been listening to this song for several months now and it is amazing! Clairo has such a nice voice, I love all her songs.

see you again by tyler the creator – And of course, a song by Tyler made the list! I love this one, the lyrics are so creative!

 

beauty ✩

mario badescu drying lotion – I picked this up when I went to Vancouver, so I have only had the chance to use it a few times. It works like a charm though! To use it, you take a q-tip and dip it in the settled pink product, then dab it on any pimples and overnight they go away!

 

Thats all for today, I hope you enjoyed  x x x  Jasper

february favourites ☆

Screen Shot 2018-02-27 at 6.59.43 PM

Hello! February was a good month, a little on the stressful side though because of school (surprise surprise.) It consisted of eating lots of yummy food, exploring the city, and hanging out with friends and family. Second term just ended, and my break start in a week and a half! I’m not going anywhere exotic over the break, just skiing and to Vancouver (I’m so excited to go shopping, expect some hauls), and hopefully we will go surfing! My grandparents are visited, so that will be fun. I will also try to post more frequently, may two or three times a week.

Now onto my favourite items from this past month.

 

+ glossier cloud paint

I have raved about this amazing product so much. It is a cream blush in such a gorgeous colour. It has an amazing formula, blending easily, and it makes you look naturally flushed! I have it in both the shade puff, a baby pink, and beam a pretty coral.

 

+ hoop earrings

Hoop earring are just an essential. I purchased this little pair of hoops from a boutique downtown, and have been wearing them ever since!

 

+ the sun and her flowers

I love love love this book! It is full of poems fit for any (and every!) mood and includes illustrations  hand drawn by Rupi Kaur. I recommend this book so much!

 

+ gorgeous washi tape

I am quite a big fan of stationary, especially washi tape and when I saw these ones, I fell in love! I believe they are from a store in New York, but I’m not totally sure

 

+ lush body conditioner

This body conditioner is called Bucks Fizz, and it is the greatest! I slather it all over my self before I hop in the shower and when I get out, it leaves my skin feeling moisturized, oh and you will smell like a lovely orange!!

 

 

Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed this post! x jasper
