HAIRSPIRATION : PRADA BOW

After I bought my first (and only) Prada bag, it took me a couple of weeks to part with the shopping bag it came in.  It was so darn pretty! I did eventually manage to get rid of it, but I made sure to keep the little Prada ribbons and duster bag it came with. I knew I'd find a use for them at some point, and I did! 

I love an easy and quick hair style and it doesn't get much easier than this.  I literally just tied the Prada ribbon around all my hair in a loose pony tail.  The key is to have your hair already curled (I had curled mine a few days beforehand), to keep it very loose (don't tie your hair in a ponytail with another hair tie before adding the ribbon) and to pull a few shorter pieces out in the front by your face.  And there you go! I free way to decorate yourself in beautiful Prada ribbon!

VLOG : The beach and karaoke


For those of you that enjoy my vlogs, here's a new one! 

In this vlog, Bubs and I lounge on the beach, have a drink on a patio, make some homemade mojitos (major fail) and head out on the town for some karaoke!

Recently I've really been loving the look of a sleek pair of slacks.  Especially ones with a crease down the centre.  I paired mine with this edgy tiger sweater and leather coat to keep the outfit very casual for the weekend.  But I could easily dress them up with a flowy top and make these slacks much more feminine.  These ones fit me perfectly because of the slightly loose fit through the hips and the way they sit low on my waist.  I rolled mine at the hem to show a little ankle, which I think makes them a little more flattering and interesting as well. 

I will say, this kind of thing is very hard to buy online because it's ALL about the fit.  However, I've linked a few of my favourite options from around the web just to give you a better look at the style of the pant.
