STARTING MY GALLERY WALL WITH PRINTIKI

November 2, 2017


Prints from Printiki
Check out their Instagram for inspo! 

I've recently taken off my huge calendar on my gallery wall and have been looking for a replacement to cover the huge empty space. My plan is to install a wall shelf, add some cool art pieces, and add some personal photos for a personal touch. 

Printiki reached out to me asking if I wanted to print some photos and it couldn't have been a better time. I chose their square M prints in a matte finish I love how they came out. The photo quality is just what I was looking for. I chose to print out a lot of my travel photos of this year because I was thinking of starting a creative scrapbook and thought these would be the perfect size to incorporate in my new journal. I'm excited to start that soon.

CELINE NANO

Celine nano <3

Handbag porn, anyone?

Look at this beauty. Anyone else feel me on this one? It's my anniversary with my Celine this summer and I will say that I'm still so in love with this bag. I've also kept it in really great condition so it still looks brand new. These photos were actually laying around in the archives but I thought I'd share for anyone who is as into handbags as I am.

One thing that has surprised me about this bag is that it's not as easy to scratch as I thought. My nails have grazed across the bag a few times and I thought I had scratched it but nope, nothing. Imagine the horror I initially had! That's not to say if you accidentally scrape your keys against the bag it won't do any damage, but something small like your nails grazing across won't make any crazy dents.

A subscriber had asked me to do a styling video with the Celine nano a while back and I do have that video in mind! I hope to get that out to you guys but really, this bag can match with any outfit. 

THE BUTCHER'S DAUGHTER

Brunch at The Butcher's Daughter

Don't you just love it when a brunch spot is not only a hyped up spot on the gram?

The Butcher's Daughter has been an Instagram popular spot for brunch for a while now so naturally it made it onto my list of brunch places to try. The food didn't look disappointing so I decided to check this place out and I'm glad it ended out being delicious.

I ordered avocado toast with eggs on top because that is the best combo ever. Eggs with anything please! They also had watermelon juice which was good. Whenever I'm at a restaurant, I always see what kind of non-alcoholic drinks they have because I don't drink alcohol and I'm a fiend for drinks. I'm always hoping they'll have something delicious. Though the watermelon juice was good, they didn't have a wide variety of drinks to choose from.

The avocado toast was super filling. I was so surprised by how full I was feeling after my meal. They were really sweet to give us complimentary ginger shots after our meal and they tasted really good. I wouldn't have thought that a ginger shot could taste good but it did!

KYLIE LIP KIT / DOLCE K


Kylie Cosmetics Matte Lip Kit in Dolce K

Before purchasing, I had read reviews about the lip kits online. There were a lot of mixed reviews with some saying it was really great and some saying they were really dry. I bought one anyway because I wanted to try it for myself. I was looking for a browner shade so I decided to go for Dolce K. 

You guys, this is the best matte lipstick I have ever worn. Matte lipsticks and liners always dry out my lips like crazy and I have tried a bunch from different brands. My lips always feel like a desert so I wasn't expecting much from this lip kit but holy - it is good. It was moisturizing and had good staying power which was such a nice surprise. I can finally wear matte lipsticks without having super dry lips after!

How I apply is I use the lip liner on my entire lips first and then adding the matte lipstick on top. I feel that is the most comfortable for my lips. I'm so happy with the results. I think I'm going to buy another one...

BURGUNDY RED

Wearing a F21 top and sandals, thrifted trousers, and Celine nano bag

Throwing it back to summer of 2016 - this look was posted onto my Instagram and it got so many likes I do not understand. I remember this day being extremely hot and wearing long pants was a mistake. What was I thinking? No clue.

I am so not ready for the heat that is about to come for us this summer because it makes going outside a drag. When you walk out for five seconds and already start to sweat... that is intense but I am happy the sun is out so I guess you win some, you lose some.
