A New Favourite Find – Knotties Hair Ties

We are in the midst of our first heat wave of the summer in Toronto, but there are no complaints from me. I love the heat! But when those sizzling temps mix with that humidity it gets downright HOT! So, if you have long hair like me, trying to curl or style it during this heat seems pointless. Tying it back seems to be the only option. If you are a regular reader, you will know I am now sharing my favourite finds as I soon as I come across them.  So being true to my word, I have a new discovery that I want to share. They are called Knotties. They are new, super cute hair ties that are braided elastics.  Not only do they have a really great hold, but they don’t catch or rip my hair. I also love that they look like braided bracelets, so they are perfect if you are someone who keeps one on your wrist. I can even see people choosing to layer them and wear them as bracelets. I got my Knotties from Trade Secrets. They come in packs of 6 in an array of coordinating colours, costing  about $7-$8 per pack. So, don’t try to fight the frizz when it’s this hot. Just tie your long hair back into a cute bun, pony or twist and feel cute, while trying to stay cool. ~ Shoana  ...

Keeping Cute and Cozy Outside this Winter!

With temperatures soaring and falling, staying stylish all year long can feel like a chore.  This time of year, with temperatures WAY below freezing sometimes you just want to throw on layers and cuddle up under a blanket.  Well, I’m here to tell you it’s not impossible to look cute and stay cozy!  Here are my go to’s when I have to venture out on these frigid winter days. 1. I am not a hat girl. Hats cause me to have abad hair day.So,  I wear earmuffs (or maybe a head band OR these super cool ear covers that I’ll tell you about another day). These faux fur ear muffs are from Indigo and are really cute! 2. Wearing a parka and mittens makes carrying a top handle bag in your hand or a tote on your shoulder a pain. That’s whyI always choose a cross body bag. Free hands and no extra bulk make for a fuss free day. This bag from Michael Kors is slim and fits a surprising amount of stuff! 3. I always need a scarf! I swear year round you will find a me with one. This knit scarf from Indigo has the cutest little faux fur pom poms on the end that match with the ear muffs… I couldn’t resist! 4. The most important thing on my list is this parka from The North Face. I bought last year’s style and it was the best winter purchase I have ever made.Wearing this coat makes me bullet proof from the cold . It also has a slim cut, so there isn’t a marshmallow man feeling when you are wearing it. I am also a fan of the faux fur...
