i will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.

Christmas has always been the greatest time of year for me. When my mom was growing up, they didn't celebrate any holidays. As a result, she always made sure that every holiday was memorable for my siblings and I.

to live is the rarest thing in the world. most people exist, that is all.

Ever since I got my new camera, I have been trying to take more pictures of my life - from when I go out, to the little things in my every day life. I wanted to share some of them with you, so here are pictures of my life lately.

a Christmas shopper's complaint is one of long-standing.

First of all, I want to thank everyone for the incredibly sweet comments on my last post. It's so hard trying to balance everything, but it's good knowing that there are other people out there in the same boat.

you only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.

November has been a busy month, but I am trying to make the most of every moment.

Lately I feel like I need to sit back and relax. In more recent months, I have been so focused on being productive and getting things done, that I haven't had much time to take it all in.

my sunglasses are like my guitar.

Okay, confession time: I am a sunglasses addict. I don't know how it happened or when, but somehow they have become my favourite fashion accessory. Recently, I was lucky enough to receive a stunning pair of sunglasses from Firmoo. These sunglasses are unlike any other pair I own - they are dramatic, futuristic, trendy, and stylish. I just love the purple tinted lenses! The sunglasses also fit perfectly, which is probably my favourite thing about Firmoo - they fit the glasses specifically to your face.

happiness comes in all colours of the rainbow.

In my birthday post, I showed you the newest additions to my makeup collection. I was lucky enough to receive the Andy Warhol kit from NARS and the Head of the Class set from Hello Kitty. Now that I have been using these products for the last little while, I wanted to share my thoughts on them.

style is a simple way of saying complicated things.

As much as I love gorgeous fall colours, I hate fall weather! As the temperature continues to drop, I keep missing the summer weather.

When it comes to staying stylish for fall, I have been fighting my urge to live in sweatpants and hoodies. On the plus side, there are certain pieces in my wardrobe that make me want to take off my sweats and glam it up! Here are some of my favourite pieces of clothing to wear this fall.

hairstyle is the final tip-off whether or not a woman really knows herself.

Recently, I have been writing about various hairstyles for Hairstyle Stars and I've really been enjoying it! I just wanted to quickly post links to some of the articles I've done that have been posted on the website. If any of them interest you, I would love for you to check them out!

the only real elegance is in the mind; if you’ve got that, the rest really comes from it.

Let’s be honest – Kristen Stewart’s style can be a hit or miss. When it comes to her red carpet fashion choices, I find myself in awe or recoiling in horror. 

When I saw pictures of Kristen at the premiere of On The Road at the AFI Fest in LA, I truly fell in love with her look. Not everyone will agree with me on this one. For me, this red carpet look was a knockout! I loved the blend of masculine and feminine style. Kristen looked strong and daring.

now look at me, I'm sparkling, a firework, a dancing flame.

This year for Halloween, I dressed up as Katy Perry. I had been planning this for ages, because I absolutely love Katy Perry! Her style is so fun and playful. I love her bold, colourful makeup, hair, and personality. It was a very easy choice for a costume this year! I was able to channel my inner Katy Perry at a Halloween party I went to. It took ages getting ready, but it was fun.
