~ Cape Cod 2015 ~

Hey everyone! I've been gone for a little while on vacation but now I'm back; a lot more relaxed, a bit more tanned (AKA sunburnt) and somewhat ready to go back to school. I took a lot of gorgeous pictures on my vacation which I thought I'd share with you all. They aren't the greatest of photos (I took them on my phone) but I'm sure some of you will enjoy them! I had such an amazing time and I can't wait to go back again some day.












If anyone would like a more in depth post about my trip to Cape Cod please let me know! :) It was such a great way to end my summer, and I'm already missing it... I hope you enjoyed these photos and you're all having a wonderful end to your summers! xo

July Favourites!

Happy August everyone! Here's what I loved this month! There isn't much, since I've mostly been using the same things I loved from June, but there are a few new things! Enjoyyy!

MAKEUP: 

Maybelline 'The Colossal Volum Express' mascara
This mascara is wonderful. I picked it up after not having used it in a while, after I ran out of my Too Faced 'Better Than Sex' mascara so it had some big shoes to fill, but I honestly have grown to love this one so much. Its not the most volumizing of mascaras that I've used, but it really lengthens your lashes in a way that looks very natural, almost to the point that you look like your wearing false lashes. Its so great!


Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in 'Elusive'
This is my go-to lip colour when I'm going out in the summer. Its so cute and summery, I honestly love wearing it. The lasting power is surprisingly long and even though its matte, it doesn't cling to any creases or dry patches on your lips. I would recommend exfoliating your lips before using a matte lip product, but if you're running late or just want something to pop on your lips, I wouldnt worry too much about this one. A must have for everyone.

BODY:

Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration After Sun lotion
I've been spending more time in the sun this month and its finally gotten really hot and sunny here in Canada. After spending some time outside in the sun, I love to use this product. It has everything you could ever want. It smells incredible, it contains aloe which is so soothing and cooling to the skin, and it has ribbons on moisturizer which keeps your skin nice and soft. I'm leaving for vacation in a couple weeks and this is the first thing I'm packing in my bag!

OTHERS:

Tangled by Carolyn Mackler
This was such a sweet, interesting read. If you're looking for a lighthearted page-turner to read by the pool or on the beach, this is it. I have a full review on my book blog, which you can read here. I highly recommend it!



Nike Free 5.0 running shoes 
I bought a new pair of running shoes, and I am so in love with them, its almost ridiculous. I have never worn a more comfortable and supportive shoe in my life. Plus, they're bright pink. Whats not to love? The picture truly does not do them justice.

                Backpack
I had my eye on this cute little bag and to my surprise, it was on sale for 50% off, so obviously I couldn't resist... I've been using this so often, especially on days when I would normally take a purse but have a few extra things that would either make it too heavy or wouldn't fit. Its so pretty and it just might be my favourite purchase of the month (along with my Nikes of course!)

What did you guys love this month? Let me know!

Summer Fashion Inspiration


                     




















I've been spending a lot of time on Pinterest lately pinning tons of amazing summer fashion (and trying to resist heading straight to the mall to buy it all!). I thought I would share some of the stuff I've been loving lately and hopefully give some of you some ideas if you're looking for some inspiration to update your summer wardrobe. (You can follow me here on Pinterest to stay updated with the stuff I'm loving!)



   


Stripes, bold colours and aztec pattens have been so huge for me this summer. I'm also loving anything flowy; be it skirts, dresses or loose shorts. Feel free to look at My Dream Closet Pinterest board for more inspiration! Besides, though it might seems a bit late in the game for Summer fashion, right now is probably the best time to shop for summer clothes (hello, summer clearance sales, anyone??)





























What have you been loving in fashion this summer? Let me know!
