White on Black

This past weekend was the fashion and beauty summit BeautyCon held out in sunny Los Angeles, and I was fortunate enough to get a chance to attend.

I wanted to wear something simple and relaxed for the day, yet still look chic and polished. I ended up going with a minimalistic white top and some high waisted leather shorts, topped off with a statement necklace.

Deighton Cup 2014

I’ve always coveted the beautiful and intricate hats that are commonly seen at daytime events in Europe. However, there aren’t too many places in Vancouver that one can don a fascinator without attracting stares of puzzlement or criticism.

The annual Deighton Cup event seeks to be different by encouraging chic fancy hats and dapper suits with pocket squares. Held at the historic Hastings Racecourse, it was a charming afternoon of stylish outfits, fine cocktails and lively entertainment.

Pop of Pink

One of my favorite things about this time of year is the beautiful sight of cherry blossom trees blooming all around the city. The delicate pink petals floating throughout the air paint Vancouver in a wash of romance.

It’s a shame that they only last for a few weeks, but I suppose that’s what makes them so special and celebrated. Their fleeting nature adds weight to their beauty and reverence.

Experimented in shooting with my Nikon 55-200 mm camera lens, which I barely ever use due to neglectful laziness.

Mad about Plaid

When I was in junior high, I was dying to get contacts. I thought glasses were clunky, and an immediate indication of your nerd level. But after years of wearing soft lenses 7 days/week, I’ve learned to love and look forward to those few days a week where I just let my eyes breathe.

Here’s an outfit I wore with my deep brown wayfarer frames and comfy plaid flannel shirt.

Leather Vests & Top Knots

I’ve recently fallen in love with the loose high top knot. It’s just such an easy and effortless way to pull your hair into something presentable but still chic. Not as polished as a classic bun, but looks great and takes only minutes to do.

Keratin Hair Smoothing: Salon Haze

During the holidays, I was approached by Salon Haze to come check out their fairly new West Broadway salon. They invited me for a complimentary hair service to review on my blog. Since I wasn’t looking to get my hair cut or colored, I opted to try their keratin smoothing treatment.
