A Day Of Beauty With Kaitlyn: Morning Cleanser

image1 (6)

I know I have raved about my night time facial cleanser (Frothy Face by Origins) a couple of times in my previous posts but realized I had never talked about my morning cleanser that I can’t live without and have been using for years!

As part of my morning routine, I wash my face with Aveeno’s Clear Complexion Foaming Cleanser before applying my daily moisturizer. This cleanser is so gentle on my skin yet it leaves it feeling clean, fresh and ready to take on the day…and my makeup ;).

Hey guys! With Canada Day (July 1st) and Independence Day (July 4th) just around the corner, I thought it’d be nice to focus on an outfit that’s patriotic. If you have an event planned or just plan on wearing something a little more classy than a giant Canada or US flag draped over your back, don’t worry – there are options!

Saks Fifth Avenue and Stephanie from The Style Bungalow had a fantastic collaboration in anticipation for the July 4th Holiday. A chic blue Tibi top with spaghetti straps and some minimal red skinny jeans to complete the patriotic look.

What do you guys think? 🇺🇸

Throwback Thursday: A Pop Of Colour

IMG_5412

For me, there’s nothing more throwback than adding a little pop of colour to an otherwise simple outfit. With the help from this cute pink satchel by Rebecca Minkoff or these amazing shorts by Lush, you’ll be able to really stand out in your day-to-day street wear.

I’m also in love with the bracelets she’s wearing. A mix of gold/silver clasps overlapping a stunning Michael Kors watch. Better start saving those pennies! 😉

Work It Wednesday: Tulle Skirt

Hi guys! Since today is Work It Wednesday AND it’s officially summer, I thought it would be useful to find an outfit that really stands out. This tulle skirt is absolutely breathtaking. However, I find it’s the surroundings that really accentuate this outfit! The purple shirt/skirt mixed with the beautiful cherry blossoms is something that looks straight out of a movie.

That’s the beauty of summer! It’s easy to choose clothes that are colourful, lightweight and have great contrast with your surroundings.

What do you guys think of the tulle skirt? Is it something you’d wear if you wanted to #WorkIt this summer?

A Day Of Beauty With Kaitlyn: Sun Care

SPF is one of the most important tools of summer. I think the days of lathering on tanning oil and basking in the sun is a past time that shouldn’t really be repeated anymore due to cancer and aging. However, that doesn’t mean I walk around with an umbrella over my head and covered from head to toe. I love the beach, sun and summer as much as anyone else, which is why a good SPF is a great tool that I carry around with me whenever I travel and always remember to apply it if I know I’ll be out in the sun.

My absolute favourite is the Ombrelle SPF 60, clear, continuous spray. It is SO easy to apply and doesn’t leave a white residue that you have to spend 10 minutes rubbing in (as I have experienced with other brands). This spray kept me protected with its high SPF and took no time at all applying. I highly recommend this brand as it was my “go-to” on my travels to Bali earlier last month.

Happy belated Father’s Day everyone! We hope you were able to spend some quality time with dad doing anything (and everything) he wanted to do!

Yesterday was officially the start of summer, and what better way to transition to sunshine than bright colours and skinny jeans. :)

An outfit you can wear to the office, a night out, or anything you might have in store for a busy summer day! (Bonus points if your sunglasses match your bag).
