New York Fashion Week is upon us, meaning all the new trends are coming out! One trend I was particularly excited to see was trench coats. I know they aren’t new, but the variations coming out are stunning! From different fabrics and patterns, to bright colours and pastels, there is a trench coat for everyones taste. Not to mention they are the perfect transition coat to wear this winter/spring. I love how you can pair them with jeans and a t-shirt, or you can layer the trench coat over a dress for a night out.  I found some amazing ones on ASOS.

Los Angeles? …. Faves from my Week



Craving of the week: 
Los Angeles! haha. I went last summer and I am DYING to go back. It is my true happy place.

Favourite Purchase: A book called “Eat Pretty”. It really breaks down the importance of each vitamin, and what they do.

This weeks moment: Finding out I passed all my classes… haha. Truly a weight lifted from my shoulders! 1 more semester to go!

Thought of the week: I am only human, and I wont be able to finish everything that is handed to me. 5 hours of biology homework, finish reading a book we were given yesterday, work for 5 hours and have a proper amount of sleep… yeah okay. I am human and thats not going to happen.

Piece of the week: oversized t-shirt. They are so comfy and look amazing with the front tucked in.

Song of the week: So Much More Than This – Grace VanderWaal

Series of the week: Still no actual series. I need to get on it! haha, but my favourite youtubers this week are Kalel, Cornelia Grimsmo and Anniken!

Instagrammer of the week: Its a tie between Anniken and Cornelia! Both are so amazing!

Quote of the week: “Be the CEO your parents always wanted you to marry” – Unknown

So Much More…

I complain, a lot. To much at times. About dumb things. Like someone taking to long to order their food, or someone rushing past me. But when it’s me it doesn’t matter. I need to change. I need to stop thinking that everything people do is directed towards me. Remember that there is a back story to everything. That the person speeding past me could be rushing to the hospital, or is simply late for work. I need to remember that the world isn’t against me, it’s my brain that’s against me. I need to change my brain, my interpretation of life and the world. I would be happier that way, not so anxious. Life would be so much more happier that way.

Today’s Outfit

I woke up to an empty house this morning. A peaceful silence woke my slumber and I had a moment of sanity. No muffled running around, rushing to get out the door. It was like the world had shut off, just for a moment. Like the world had agreed to stop. I rolled out of bed and felt a shiver run up my spine from the cold floor, bringing me back to life. Like a bucket of ice was thrown on me, it startled me with a jolt. This is real, I am real, I am living this moment, and this moment will not live again, a new one will always replace it. This is my comfort, reality is my safe place. It’s a structure that I rely on, I fall apart without reality. This moment is mine, that I can control. In my own way.
 
WHAT’S YOUR REALITY?

The Beginning of the End

Yesterday was the first day, of my last semester of high school. Ever. I thought I’d be excited, overjoyed and looking forward to what the next chapter of my life will bring. But I’m not. I’m scared. Waking up with butterfly’s in my tummy and a heavy heart I roll out of bed. Today is my last, first day. I thought in Gr. 9 that the next 4 years of my life would be the longest ever, and it felt it. Until today, I feel like I blinked and now it’s almost over. I don’t even want to imagine what I am going to feel on my last day ever.

They say the last 4 years of my life are supposed to be the best of my life. I hope to god they are wrong. The pressure of making high school an amazing experience is huge, and it’s wrong. I hope that from the age of 14-18 are not my best. I hope that they are my worst. Why are we so caught up in making these 4 years of our lives the best? Seeing others try so hard to make these years there best and watching them slowly fade away into a mirage of something else, something that when you look closer isn’t true at all. I hope that these aren’t others best years either. Most don’t remember the fun nights out and tried so hard to have fun that they became the worst nights, in the hospital, playing with the line of death and life, with the only memories being blurry photos taken by their ‘friends’.

My best years are ahead of me. Although it is daunting and eating away at my sanity it feels. The best moments in my life are yet to happen, as well as some pretty horrible ones. My happiness in 10 years will not be determined by the last 4 years of my life. They will be determined by the moment I am living in.

WILL YOU LIVE IN YOUR BEST MOMENTS?

Trend of the Week

I know, I know. ANOTHER post on jewelry!? I’m sorry, I just love necklaces. They have such a power to change an outfit entirely and I am obsessed. My top two brands of jewelry I have found so far are Bagatiba and Logan Hollowell.
 Logan Hollowell is a little more expensive, but the pieces are so beautiful that I don’t mind the price. I love the necklace with the Big Dipper Constellation necklace, it’s so beautiful. 
Bagatiba is such a beautiful brand as well, and a lot more affordable. I already have a post on my newest necklace from here, and I love it! Bagatiba is such a good brand for those who want real jewelry, but don’t want to break the bank.

Some Faves From the Week


Favourite Purchase: Plants. haha. So boring I know. But, I find they help brighten my mood during the cold, sunless winter here.
Craving of the Week: Sun light!! Spring can come anytime now! haha.
Moment of the Week: Finishing my exams finally!
Thought of the Week: That stress will not change the outcome of anything. You can stress over something coming up, or that has happened but you are only harming yourself. What happens will happen, and what has happened, happened. No, need to stress the small things in life, they happen for a reason. 
Article of the week: Ripped, boyfriend jeans.
Song of the week: Don’t Kill My Vibe – Sigrid
Series of the week: Nothing really, so heres a photo of my aunts dog I’m puppy-sitting.
Instagrammer of the week: Will Smith! Funny, yet inspiring every day! So motivational to look through. 
Quote of the week: ” If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love someone else?” – RuPaul
IS IT SUNNY WHERE YOU LIVE?

My Personality, Food & OOTD

Today I took a personality test and damn I am an outsider! haha! I didn’t use one of the dumb, fun ones from buzzfeed, I took it on a website called ’16personalities.com’. After answering all the questions and looking at the letter it assigned me (INTJ-T) and reading the characteristics about myself and what each letter meant, and why I am like this I understand myself so much more. I know, cheesy. But I challenge you to take this test and try to tell me different! haha. 
A quick overview is that I only have 1 true friend, and I’ve known her since we were 4 years old. It’s not that I don’t try to be friendly and make other friends. It’s just that I am a very logical, straight forward thinker. I like facts, not gossip. But, before taking this test I just thought that I was weird and to different. I didn’t know why I had such a hard time finding people who I 1. genuinely liked. 2. I could hold a conversation I enjoyed. But, know I understand that I just don’t think the same way as most people. I fall in the 0.8% of females who have this personality type. 

Beyond Burgers freak me out. They are pink like raw burgers, and as they cook become browner. Like, WHAT?! haha. But god damn are they good. Hands down the best vegan burger EVER. With a side of fries and a large pop, and you have the dream North American meal.

A doctor appointment had me up by 8:00 today and out the door by 8:45. So, rolling out of bed more groggy then ever I threw on my all time favourite ripped boyfriend style jeans and a white t-shirt. Paired with my comfy black keds, and a leather jacket. I put my eyebrows on and some mascara to look more awake and somewhat put together.
WHAT IS YOUR PERSONALITY??

Bagatiba

As I have written before, I love my jewelry. It’s my saviour and shield in life. So, I don’t like having a weak shield. Meaning, I don’t like having fake, cheaper jewelry. Not that there is anything wrong with having it, I just prefer to spend my money on pieces that will last a while, and can take a bigger hit. When I stumbled upon the website ‘Bagatiba‘ and found out it was all real, hand made jewelry from California AND it wouldn’t completely break the bank, I decided to buy a piece and see what the brand was all about. 
I ordered the 1SM NECKLACE. It is a gold – filled necklace with a 22″ gold ball chain. Each piece of jewelry is hand made, meaning each piece is in some way unique. I love the idea of supporting a company that is so hands on with their products and you can tell that they care about each piece of jewelry they make. 
I love the length of the chain, it falls exactly where I want it.   I also bought  a box off the website for $12 to hold your valuables in safe, secret place. I personally bought it because it is a damn cute box and it went with my room. haha! I highly recommend Bagatiba!!1
