How I Dyed my Hair from Black to Light Brown!

Hi everyone! I've been getting a lot of questions on my hair, so I decided to film a video to answer all there is to know about my current colour. First of all, I LOVE IT, it keeps looking better with my skin tone as I get tanner, and I love the lighter feel. My sister did it at home for me, and all the products we used were from Sally's Beauty Supply.

For details about the process and how I maintain my hair, check out my video below!

What I Carry in My Beach Bag!

Hi everyone! This summer has been so fun thus far, and I've already made a lot of use out of my summer essentials. Today, I wanted to share what I pack for a day at the beach! It's ultra important to stay prepared for day-long excursions, and find a balance between packing light and bringing your necessities. 

A few things that I carry are my everyday makeup bag, body butter, sunglasses & my camera. To check out what I carry to the beach in it's full entirety, watch the video below! 

Would love to hear some if your beach essentials!

Outfit of the Day: Boyfriend Jeans & Army Jacket

Hey everyone! I purchased some boyfriend jeans in the winter, and am breaking them out for spring! I always found it a challenge to wear these, because they're really loose fitting, but super comfortable nonetheless. Kept it casual with a plain white tee, an army jacket tie around (my fave!) and beat-up converse (I've had them since high school whaaat)! 

For the whole outfit, check out my video:

How I Style: Circle Skirts (Day & Night Looks!)

Hi everyone & happy MAY!! A huge part of my wardrobe philosophy is to own staple (or statement!) pieces that can be incorporated into a number of different outfits! That being said, I also love to rock prints in the spring time, and that's where this bold leopard skirt comes in! This circle skirt from H&M is a great statement piece to have for spring; It has a timeless shape, but a super fun and trendy feel. I decided to style this look for both day time & nights out. Check it out in my video below!

My Everyday Hair Routine 2014!

Hey everyone! I've always generally had pretty long hair since I was younger, and ever since I started Youtube, people have requested me to make a video on how I take care of mine! I like to keep it really simple, adding in a finishing oil before I blow dry because of my ombre (to keep the ends moisturized). I haven't done one of these for the last couple of years, so I decided to do an updated version!

Check out my hair care routine below!

Outfit of the Day: Leather Skirt & A$AP

Hi everyone! Thought I would share my outfit of the day today! While it's still that in-between not-chilly-but-not-sweltering weather, I figure that I'd get some use out of a few pieces that I bought through the winter. This A$AP Rocky graphic from the H&M men's section was an AMAZING find that I found in Montreal. Dylan & I loved it both so much that we both got one! I paired it with this pleather Forever 21 skirt, where I actually cut out the under part to give it a more asymmetrical feel. I also really like to pair short skirts like this one with a flat shoe, it's the perfect combination for cruising the city. 

Shirt: H&M (Men's)
Skirt: Forever 21
Boots: Urban Outfitters

My Fave Spring Trends: Overalls, Floppy Hats, Florals & More!

Hey everyone! Spring has sprung, which means a number of things for me:

1) I am done exams and back in Toronto!! (YAY)
2) I can finally start to read for leisure again and ditch the textbooks 
3) I can finally break out some of my spring pieces!! (Goodbye Canada Goose, it's been real)

This post will be about the third AWESOME aspect of spring, which is spring trends. I love this time of year because I finally feel like I can wear a bit of colour, versus my strict black and grey winter wardrobe. Here are some of my favourite trends for this season: 

1. Floppy Hats: I wore these hats all summer long last year, and they are definitely a staple in my spring wardrobe. They're great for a bad hair day, or just to make a look more complete. I love this black felt one from H&M - it takes me through spring to fall. I paired it with an army green jacket and a pair of shorts to give it a more spring time feel. 
2. Overalls: Dare I say it... I love these! This trend is definitely growing on me since I tried these on. This pair from Hollister are perfect when matched with a crop top. A long sleeve crop top is a great option for those who don't want to show too much skin, and it makes the overall look more layered. I paired it also with ankle boots and a fedora-style hat to give it an edgier look. 
3. Graphic Crop Tops: This "GET LOST" crop top is super fun, and can be worn in either spring or summer. It adds a punch to what would otherwise be a neural outfit. 
4. Stripes & Knits: I love to layer, and spring is the season to do it. I paired a striped crop top with an open knit sweater for some coverage. Pairing light colours together makes layering more springtime, and gives you options when the weather gets warmer. 
5. Florals & Leather: This dress has a small print, which adds some colour without being too overwhelming. I thought when paired with a chunky boot such as these bold black Doc Martens, it gives the dress a more punky feel. To add layers, I also paired the outfit with a vest. I love that florals don't necessarily have to be overly feminine, I love the grungy vibe they can have as well. 

For all the looks, check out my video below!

Love Always, Rachel
