How Shredded is too Shredded?

These distressed jeans are currently the most controversial item in my closet. I've had some hilarious conversations about them...Do they even count as jeans or are they mainly holes with just a little bit of denim in between?

And let's talk about the silhouette...baggy and boyfriend style...with cropped hems and a wide-leg. There is a LOT going on with these jeans. Yet, I secretly ADORE them! Paired with black leggings, I can enjoy all the distressed detailing without exposing any skin.

Quick N' Easy Makeup 5 Minute Smokey Eye Tutorial

When it comes to eye makeup, my go-to look is gel liner and mascara - as seen in the photo below. For special occasions, I'll wing out my eyeliner and stick on false lashes - but that's about as adventurous as I get.

I was invited to take part in Charlotte Tilbury's Quick N' Easy challenge and try out her 5-minute Smokey Eye Evening kit. It's been years since I attempted a smokey eye. I find dark eyeshadow difficult to work with - it always transfers everywhere, and I end up with a smudgy mess! I thought it would be a fun to test this kit because it's outside of my usual makeup comfort zone - and I always love learning new makeup tricks.

Our Top Five Favourite Activities at Beaches Turks & Caicos

It's only been a month since we returned from our holiday to Beaches Turks and Caicos - and I'm already wishing we could go back! Whenever I see people posting pictures and insta-stories of their Beaches holidays, it REALLY makes me miss the sparkling blue water and amazing weather. Since I'm feeling nostalgic, today's post features all of our favourite Beaches activities.

Winter Survival Guide: Cold Weather Boots for Every Occasion

I'm a tropical girl at heart, so winter is always a struggle for me. Every time the weather goes below zero, I dash inside whimpering "cold, cold...I'm freezing!" But as the saying goes - there's no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing. And having the right boots for winter makes a huge impact on my willingness to venture outside! Read below for the four cold weather boots that are helping me survive this season:

For Wading in the Snow:

Blogger Outfit Kamik Momentum Boots Pink Lace Up Sweater Leather Leggings
Hat: Ardene (similar) / Sweater: c/o Dresslily / Leggings: c/o JoeFreshBoots: c/o Kamik / Bag: Celine

The Boot: Momentum by Kamik (C$110)
Special Features:  Waterproof, temperature-rated up to -40C, thinsulate insulation, faux fur trim and a loop-lacing system
Why I Love It: These are the boots I bring out when I mean business - the thinsulate insulation keeps me so toasty and warm - perfect for when everything is covered in snow. One of the main reasons I picked this particular style is because they're VERY easy to slip on and off. They have stretchy laces and a toggle closure - so you can just step into them - no need to sit down and wrestle with your boots! Another important feature is how lightweight these boots are - who wants to clomp around in heavy or bulky snow boots? Lastly, I love the black-on-black faux fur trim - it makes these boots look very chic and luxe.
