The Eight Types of Shoes Every Girl Should Own

1. The Ankle Boot
Only recently did I really get into the whole “ankle bootie” trend.  I love how such a simple shoe can really bring together an outfit whether dressy or casual and still be so functional and comfortable.

2. The Ballet Flat
Talk about a versatile shoe.  When I first heard about ballet flats, I thought they would be so uncomfortable and you wouldn’t be able to accomplish anything in them.  Boy was I wrong.  Flats are great for slipping on for an early morning class, for running errands, for a night out with the girls or for a date night.  You can pretty much do anything in a good pair of flats.

3. The Casual Sneaker
When you have no idea what shoes to wear, chances are a casual sneaker such as a white pair of Converse or simple black Vans will do the trick and look effortlessly chic.

4. The Flat Sandal
These are without a staple especially in the summer.  They are super easy to just throw on and look like you spent time putting effort into your outfit.  With all of the different styles, you’re sure to find one that you really love and can express yourself with.

5. The Black Pump
For all those times you’ve spent looking through your closet trying to find the perfect heel to go with that outfit, look no further.  A simple black pump will go with everything and look crisp and clean for all of those photo opportunities.

6. The Nude Heel
Much like the black pump a nude heel will save you a lot of time.  If a black shoe looks too dark or harsh with your outfit, opt for a nude heel.  It’ll make your legs look longer and bring a bit of light to the outfit.

7. The Kitten Heel
This is what I think of when I think of an “office shoe.”  If you are going to any place where you need to conduct some serious business these shoes will surely command the attention that you want.

8. The Stacked Heel
You know those times when you have no idea if the event you’re attending is casual or dressy?  Sure you can ask but sometimes you can’t.  This shoe will be your saviour! It can be super casual or super dressy.  The perfect time saver and the perfect sidekick.

Love your sole sister,


Herbal Essence Naked Moisture Line

After trying the Herbal Essence Naked Moisture Conditioner for the first time last night, I’ve been able to come to a conclusion, it’s good, just not great.
Typically I use the Tresemme Moisture Rich Conditioner because I have found that this adds the most moisture to my hair making it look shiny, smooth and healthy without weighing it down. While the Herbal Essence Naked Moisture Conditioner can do this as well, I need to use about double the amount of product that I would normally use and since the bottle is quite smaller, I would end up having to purchase more bottles, more frequently.
That being said, there were some things that I preferred about the Herbal Essence Naked Moisture Conditioner in comparison to the Tresemme Moisture Rich Conditioner:
First of all, the Herbal Essence Naked Moisture Conditioner smells significantly better/stronger than the Tresemme Moisture Rich Conditioner. I love having good smelling hair and the mint scent of this conditioner just screams fresh and clean.
Secondly, I love that it leaves absolutely no residue in my hair and helps to tame the frizz. I have naturally curly hair so this is especially important to me.
Finally, the packaging is amazing. Nothing says “naked” like neutral colours. I have to admit, I am definitely a sucker for good packaging.
Overall, I really enjoy this conditioner and if I didn’t have to use so much of it, I would say it’s perfect.

Now onto the shampoo. My first reaction when I saw this shampoo was “the packaging is so natural and pretty.” This is the perfect packaging for the “Naked” line of products as it looks the most natural and is still eye-catching. On to the product itself, I tried out the Herbal Essence Naked Moisture Shampoo for the first time last night and I loved it! It smelled great, it wasn’t too overwhelming, and it did it’s job! This shampoo left my hair feeling soft and clean without any soapy-shampoo residue left behind. I also love that this shampoo is clear just to reiterate the natural-ness of the line of products. Overall, the Naked Moisture Shampoo is a great product; it’s inexpensive, it smells great and it actually cleans the hair. I would definitely recommend this to anybody that’s in the market for a new shampoo or just wants to try something different for a change.



St. Jacob’s Farmers Market

I know I’ve talked about it before but the St. Jacob’s Farmers Market is definitely a place that you need to visit at some point in your life.  It is so tranquil and peaceful.  The look of the village and the market take you back in time to when it all began in the 1800’s.  There are so many different locations within the town that you have the option of checking out but there is already so much within the market itself it would surely take a while to check out everything.  Here’s a little sneak peak.

College Wardrobe Essentials – Lazy Days

1. Joggers.

Just think of these magical pants as sweatpants but much, much more fashionable.  If you really want to wear sweatpants but think your crush might show up or you have already worn sweatpants for the past 3 days straight, these are the perfect alternative.  It’s like sweatpants and your most fashionable bottoms had a baby.  Joggers are the perfect hybrid of comfort and style.  They feel like sweatpants but look one hundred times better and more put together.

2. Blanket Scarf.

When you just want to crawl back into bed or when you want to bring your bed with you to class, a blanket scarf is the perfect alternative.  You’ll look fabulous since it can be styled in so many different ways and you can get a variety of patterns but you’ll feel like you never even left the most comfortable place in the world.  It’s the perfect accessory.

3. Flannel.

You can wrap it around your waist or wear it as a shirt.  Flannels are probably the most versatile piece of clothing you can own and they are super trendy for school.  There are so many different colour palettes and styles that you’ll be sure to find at least five that you love.  And that’s perfect! One for each day of the week!  You can never have too many flannels.

4. Converse/Vans.

I have been wearing Converse shoes for years and just recently purchased a pair of Vans.  These two brands of shoes are the only ones that I do not need to break in at all!  They are extremely comfortable even if you are standing on your feet all day and the variety of colours and styles make them perfect for any occasion, especially school.  You can express yourself and look stylish and trendy while you do it, not to mention your feet won’t be aching at the end of the day.

My Hair Donation Experience

About a week ago, I made a somewhat rash decision to make a hair appointment.  I never make hair appointments, my mom usually just trims my hair herself so this was a big decision.  I had been growing my hair out for a long time with the intention of donating it right after my grade 12 prom.  Grade 12 was a strange year for me,  I ended up getting sick and was in the hospital for a couple of months.  I had lost a lot of my hair and as I was recovering my hair grew back.  I wanted my hair to grow back more and be healthier so I could donate it when it was at its best.  I trimmed it a couple of times just to keep it alive without all of the split ends and breakage.  Finally, after prom this year, I decided to make the cut.  I made the appointment in a moment of braveness one Wednesday night and told the salon to make it as soon as possible.

Exploring Home

Since it is summertime, many people are expected to travel to exotic worlds and spend weeks lying in the sun like a gecko.  While this may seem quite intriguing and satisfying, it is also extremely expensive. Ain’t nobody got money for that!

Earlier this week, one of my best friends and I went on a little adventure in a close-by little town.  It was the perfect escape from everyday life and it didn’t cost a pretty penny, well except for the $2 I spent on a mousse cake but let’s be honest, I probably would have paid way more for that!

Festival Fashion

Spring and summer is the perfect time to go out to music festivals. Coachella kicked off festival season already this year but we have tons of festivals to come.

I’ve been asked many times already what people should wear to a festival. My answer? Nothing. Okay, maybe not really but festivals are a place for crop tops, bralettes as shirts, short shorts, no bra and sometimes even no shirts. “Nudity is a must at festivals.” Couldn’t have said it better myself Alexa Chung. It’s so true. And the more festivals become popular, the more it becomes true.

So what if you’re not in the mood for showing off everything that you have to offer? Here are some festival trends you can’t go wrong rocking.
