Winter Fashion Essentials

Moving to a colder climate just in time for winter probably wasn’t the smartest decision, especially because I had no clothes prepared for such a bitter winter. Over the past couple of months I’ve been purchasing wisely to ensure I have something to wear when the temperature drops to disturbingly cold levels. I have to admit it’s been a little hard sticking to my plan of only buying classic pieces that will be transeasonal and within my budget. Sure, if budget was no limit I would just go buy a few Burberry jackets but unfortunately I can’t do that right now.

Here are my latest fashion buys keeping me warm during the chilly season.  Continue Reading

MERRY CHRISTMAS to all those around the world celebrating the birth of their lord, and to everyone else who just uses this day to get presents and spend time with loved ones. Whatever it is you do on this day, the one thing Christmas has definitely come to represent is gift giving. I don’t celebrate Christmas so it’s something I miss out on, even though I do give gifts to those who do celebrate it. However, I love the idea of a treat at the end of the year so I bought my own presents as a way to celebrate all the hard work I had put in to 2013. Go me!

While you open your gifts and dine with family I thought I would join in by sharing with you my own Christmas haul.  Continue Reading

Kim Kardashian Jessica Alba Rachel Bilson Boyfriend Jeans

This post is sponsored by Target

The Boyfriend trend has been a huge hit with celebrities, on catwalks and in high-end fashion stores for quite some time, but as someone without a supermodel body shape it has meant that even though I love the look of the trend, I couldn’t find anything that suited me. Target understands the troubles real women face with fashion trends so they teamed with their legendary style ambassador, Gok Wan, to create their own Boyfriend Collection.

With the belief anyone can pull off the Boyfriend trend, Target challenged me to create an outfit using one of their Boyfriend pieces. At first I thought they were ridiculous because I haven’t found denim to look good on me in over 3 years but I was up for a challenge. After all, my style icon, Rachel Bilson, can be seen in a boyfriend-style of denim almost every week so it has been on my shopping list for quite sometime. Challenge accepted! Continue Reading

In-Home Massage Soothe App Review

Have you had a professional massage in your own home? It was a concept I thought was reserved for rich housewives and high-flying executives. To my surprise, however, massage is no longer a luxury as it’s becoming an essential part of self-care. Hunching over computers and mobile devices, less daily movement and exercise …. our bodies are suffering. Massage is one of the easiest ways to reduce pain and stress from mounting up in our body, but with busier lives comes less time for self care.

I’ve always dreamt of having a massage therapist come to me, and I’ve looked into it many times over the last few years. I tried to find a reliable and certified massage therapist who offered in-home massage and didn’t charge a crazy price but that always seemed to be just out of reach. Then, I heard that Soothe had launched in Australia. An app that turns massage into an on-demand service. Will my Soothe app review reveal an answer to my prayers? Read on to find out!
