Ending on a High Note

This is it! The last day of 2014. It's been a pretty awesome year and I feel like it has gone by way too quickly.

Shopbop's Year End Sale!

What better way to end the year than with an amazing Shopbop sale?! From now until January first, they have 25% off all sale items using code CHEERS2015. I went through to find my favorite items and they seriously have so many that I found it impossible to choose.

NYE Sparkles with Jessica Luxe

I hope you had an amazing Christmas! I took a few days off over the holidays to spend time with the fam and enjoy some time away from the computer. I actually had every intention of working, but I was just enjoying my pjs and quality time too much to bring out the laptop. But now I feel like I have so much catching up to do!

Getting Christmassy!

Less than one week to go! This is the first look from the video that I posted yesterday and I just love this sweater so much. We shot these photos at the Christmas Tree Farm in Richmond and we had such a fun day there.

Fashion Video: Holiday Sweaters

Only one week until Christmas!! I can't believe how fast it came. I feel like there's still so much to do. To get into the Christmas spirit, Ollie and I spent last weekend doing a few fun holiday activities which we decided to turn into a video.

Cozy Lunch Date

 Bundling up is the only way to go lately! I wanted to show you this sweater that I got from J.Crew a couple of weeks ago, but once I was ready to leave the house, I was too bundled up to show it off.

November/December Favs Video

Happy Monday!! I wanted to do something a little different and show you some of my favorite things from November and the beginning of December in video form. I mixed it up a bit and included some home decor, skincare, beauty, accessories and fashion. I had a lot of fun filming it and I really hope that you like it!

Wednesday, 10 December 2014


A bit of a late one since I forgot to do my November Recap! I've gone right up until my most recent post because we haven't been doing nearly as many outfit posts lately. I hope you don't mind that I've been mixing things up with some makeup tutorials and shopping ideas -- the change has been a lot of fun for me and it's keeping me so inspired to try new things. Let me know if there's anything in particular that you would like to see more of!

I hope you have an amazing Wednesday. xoxo

New Staples

 Happy Tuesday! I hope you had a good start to your week. I feel like I was super productive and got a couple of videos done as well as these outfit shots, so all in all a good day.

Sales Sales Sales!

*image found on Pinterest

And the sales keep on coming! I will say it again and again -- this is my very favorite time of year. The festive cheer, the smells in the airs, the baking, the get-togethers, my birthday, Christmas, New Years, and of course, the SHOPPING! So many good things for one month. And so, I wanted to quickly share some of the amazing sales that are happening right now. Check out below for the details and links!

A Snowy Sunset

 On our way down to Seattle last weekend, we saw the most beautiful sunset over top of snowy trees and just had to stop to snap some shots.

Thursday, 4 December 2014


 Back to the cold outdoors -- I haven't posted anything with me all bundled up for a while! But in reality, it's all that I can possibly wear outside at the moment. It's been sooo cold! I'm actually wondering where my toque is in these photos... Must have forgotten it on this day.

Lounging in MeUndies

 Now that the weather is subzero, all I want to do it cuddle up at home and be cozy under the covers while watching Netflix (which is exactly what I did yesterday for my birthday).

Birthday Girl

 I'm so excited that it's finally December! This month is my very favorite of the year -- and not just because it's my birthday month, but I just love love love all of the holiday festivities.

VIDEO TUTORIAL: Subtle Gold Eyeshadow Look for Daytime

 This is a look that I have been wearing almost every day lately and it is perfect for the winter and holiday season. It has a hit of sparkle on the lids, without being too overdone. Bonus is that there's no eyeliner so it's super easy and quick to do!

Black Friday Shopping with Lyst

Happy Black Friday!! Truly, one of the best days of the year. I actually personally avoid the shops on this particular day, but will instead do all my shopping throughout the rest of the weekend -- the sales always continue through the weekend anyways!

VIDEO TUTORIAL: 12 Steps to a Flawless Foundation Base

I hope you guys are enjoying the makeup tutorials as much as I am! They really are so much fun and it's renewing my obsession with all things beauty. This video is a bit of a "pre-makeup" video that shows some tricks I've picked up along the way to create a flawless foundation base. Once you have done these steps, you would go on to do the rest of your makeup. Think of it as the way to create your blank canvas on which you can begin your artwork :)

Exploring in my Hunters

I hope you had an amazing weekend! I was still pretty sick, so I had quite the lazy one. No adventures like last weekend when we took these photos!

Thursday, 13 November 2014

Blanket Scarf

 The very best thing about fall is the cozy scarves and sweaters. My new obsession is the blanket scarf and I can't believe that I am allowed to wear a warm and soft blanket around in public and it's socially acceptable. Seriously, why haven't we done this before now?

Wednesday, 12 November 2014

Pink Frost

 Well, I'm definitely sick now and I have a feeling these photos are the culprit. It was freeezing yesterday and this is how I decided to go outside...

Tuesday, 11 November 2014


 Sorry about my short hiatus! Ollie and I decided to take advantage of the Tuesday holiday and make a super long weekend out of it.

Personal Style blogger Alison Hutchinson gives a step-by-step tutorial on how to recreate this date night makeup
Seriously, isn't makeup amazing? All you need to do is look at a before and after to see the transformation. These photos weren't Photoshopped at all so that you can see a true before and after.

Double Sweater Weather

If you're anything like me, you might feel like winter coats are super restrictive and maybe not the most comfortable thing to wear on a day when you want to be warm and cozy for a walk through all the beautiful fall leaves.

Desk to Drinks

Vancouver fashion blogger, Alison Hutchinson, is wearing an Obakki grey wool bodycon dress, kate spade bag and Zara heels
 Don't you just love a great dress that hugs all the right curves in all the right places? I usually try to hide my hips and stay away from accentuating them, but a dress like this actually makes me happy to have them.

October Looks

As the weather is getting colder and colder (and rainier), all I seem to want to wear are my most comfortable clothes.

Friday, 31 October 2014

All Black Baby

Happy Halloween!! I'm not much of a costume person, so I thought an all black look would be most appropriate for today.

Travel in Comfort

Even though it's not a long distance to travel to the island, I still like to dress in ultra comfortable clothes whenever I make the trip.

VIDEO TUTORIAL: Long Lasting Red Lipstick

What better way to brighten up your humpday than with some gorgeous red lips?! I mean seriously, look at that before and after. Doesn't the red lipstick brighten up the face so much? I love how something so simple can have such a dramatic effect.

Grey & Black -- A Love Story

I hope you had an amazing weekend! As I had mentioned on Friday, Ollie and I went over to the island to celebrate my cousin's wedding in Victoria.

White Midi Skirt for Fall

 TGIF! My Friday is quickly getting away from me and I have so many things to do! We're heading over to the island for my cousin's wedding and I'm so excited.

Fall Basics

 Having your go-to basics is so important and is such a time saver whenever you feel like you have nothing to wear.

Monday, 20 October 2014

Just Add Leather

Vancouver Style Blogger, Alison Hutchinson, is wearing a plaid Zara Skirt, Topshop black leather jacket, Sam Edelman buckle boots, and a Kate Spade Black Bag
 This Monday didn't turn out too bad at all! I'm usually not a fan of this particular day, but sometimes life will surprise you. This week looks like it will be a busy one, but hopefully that means lots of good things will come from it.

Sunday, 19 October 2014

Rainy Day Comfort

 I hope you've had an amazing weekend! Mine went far too fast and I feel like I didn't get nearly as much relax time as I would have liked. But who am I to complain?

Thursday, 16 October 2014

Changing Leaves

Vancouver Style Blogger, Alison Hutchinson, is wearing a plaid Zara top, topshop black leather moto jacket, faded black Zara jeans, leopard print Rebecca Minkoff bag, and black topshop ankle boots
 This look is almost like a Throw Back Thursday! When we were at Stanley Park and Ollie was taking the camera out, we both had a flashback to when I was wearing pretty much this exact same look last fall. Must be a good one! Lol!

VIDEO TUTORIAL: Cheekbone Contouring

It has been absolute ages and ages since our last video, so we thought it was about time to make a new one!

One of the questions I get asked the most is how to create amazing cheekbones, so I thought it would be fun to do a step-by-step on what I do every day to achieve the look of great cheekbones, while still looking nice and natural.

Black Black Leopard

 I hope you had an amazing weekend and a Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends! Ollie and I took it easy for the weekend, which was nice because it was a super gloomy and cold one.

Friday, 10 October 2014


 TGIF! I can't believe I'm still getting away with bare legs! This fall has been the best that I can remember.

Inspiration: My Calvins

 Cuties in undies alert! Calvin Klein has been doing a major throwback to my ultimate fav 90's style -- the Calvin Klein underwear waistband. I definitely sported this look and so wanted to be Kate Moss from those iconic ads, so I for one am loving the huge push that they have been doing on social media.
