New in...I gave in

These were considered "trendy" last year even though they have been around for ages. After the Celine SS13 collection came out, it seemed like everyone was wearing them. I resisted, I tellz yah....but those darn Olsen twins! I always get jealous when I see their photos wearing this type of sandals, so these got purchased from Little Burgundy:P

(Let me tell you....these are sooooo comfy. These are my first Birkis, and definitely will not be the last.)
Birkenstock Arizona sandals

And yes...I'll be wearing them with socks. Bite me.

Try to buy Birkis in person so you can get the right fit. If you have to order online, I suggest buying one size down (for the Arizona anyway).

Are you a fan of the Birkenstocks?

Book raves: The Craft and Living In Style

Just thought I'd share with you two new fashion/beauty books I really love:

The Craft: DIY Hair and Beauty by Lou Teasdale and Living In Style by Rachel Zoe

Different target audience, but I enjoyed both:)

 Rachel Zoe's book is filled not only with fashion advice, but also tips on hair &makeup,  house decorating and stuff like how to host a party and travelling. I'm a sucker for this type of books, and Rachel dispenses great advice in my opinion. The book also has gorgeous photos for inspiration.

I want this whole setup, guys!



Lou Teasdale is the hair and makeup person for One Direction, so I think The Craft is geared for teen-agers (I'm definitely not part of the target audience...ahem....), although there is a short section on tattoos, so I don't know.....I love this book just because it's filled with fun and non-traditional beauty tips. There are also product recommendations for different price points (most are UK products, but you can order them online). 
The book is also done like a small scrapbook, and who doesn't love that? (There are also stickers included...my inner tween is happy:D)





Have you read any of the two books? What hair/makeup/fashion books do you like?

Braided

I've never been to a music festival, but after seeing all the Coachella pics, I was inspired to this hair. Nothing says music fest to me more than hairstyles like the braid...who doesn't love braids, right?

Denim season...kinda

Everyone here has been busting out the lighter jackets. It is snowing today, however...sigh...but I guess after experiencing -40°C, anything above -10 is warm for us.

PS These pics were taken yesterday when it was actually kinda nice in the morning.

Happy Tuesday, guys:)

Granny chic

One of the things I really like to knit are shawls. They're so versatile, aside from being warm and cozy:)

Aside from using it as a scarf, a shawl is perfect for when you're in the movies and it gets cold, watching TV at home, reading a book with a warm cup of cocoa, at work and sitting under a vent....

So happy that spring is finally here. It's so nice to be able to go out and finally wear some lighter accessories like this scarf:)

Have a super Friday, y'all! Any weekend plans?
