Favourite Spring Perfumes

IMG_0525

With April approaching and spring time just around the corner, why not change up your fragrance? I love buying different fragrances and find myself investing in new ones every time a season rolls around (which I should stop doing because it clearly affects the cashflow…). After going spicy and woodsy in the winter, I tend to go floraly and fresh in the spring. Here are my top 5 Spring Time Fragrance Picks (you can buy them any place that sells fragrances):

  1. Viktor Rolf Flower Bomb: This is one of my favourites. I sometimes sneak this fragrance during other seasons because it’s so beautiful. It’s flowery enough to be sweet. This is a very classy scent that will leave you and everyone around you happy!
  2. Dolce and Gabanna Light Blue: I cannot live without this fragrance during the spring and summertime. It’s citrusy, It’s fresh…It smells like you just stepped out of a D&G shower.  This is also very addictive for you and everyone around you ;).
  3. Marc Jacobs Daisy: The name and the bottle scream spring time! The best way to describe this fragrance is the cool wind that breezes through when you’re lying on the grass. I love this scent for Spring. It lingers on and it smells flowery without smelling flowery (like that makes any sense?).
  4. Victoria’s Secret Bombshell: This fragrance makes you feel like a bombshell! It’s light, fruity, flowery with a tiny hint of vanilla. I love this fragrance, especially for work, because it’s not overpowering. It’s enough to get you noticed without making the person beside you cough.
  5. Chanel Chance Eau Fraiche: This is a must have in any fragrance collection.  This is the perfect spring scent. Like it’s name…it’s fresh, flowery, and very chanel. I’ve had numerous people come upto me and ask me what I’m wearing and where they can buy it..whenever I have this on.

Remember: When testing fragrances, especially for spring, spray on skin (preferably your wrist) to see if the fragrance suits you. In order to have your own signature spring fragrance, you have to be comfy with it…which means don’t buy it unless you LOVE it!

Who else is excited for spring to be here? I know I am! I find that with the season changing, I tend to gravitate towards makeup products that are more versatile and easy to use. Below you will find some of my favourite products and why I think they’re perfect for spring! Also, don’t forget to follow me on Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and Tumblr!

Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35: I love this product because it works like a tinted moisturizer, which is perfect for spring! It lasts all day, gives me a natural look and leaves my skin looking flawless!

Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Crayon in Blackquer: I love black eye liner, no matter the season. This one is perfect because of its amazing staying power. It literally doesn’t come off unless you use makeup remover!

MAC Eye Shadow in Shroom: I love this eye shadow for spring because it looks amazing on every skin tone. It’s a pale colour that is opaque and its got a sheeny finish, which is perfect for spring. You can wear this alone or pair it with another eye shadow for a smoky eye!

MAC Eye Shadow in Antiqued: why not re-invent your smoky eye makeup this spring? This coppery brown colour is the perfect colour to swap your black shadow for. You can wear this on its own or pair it up with Shroom for a very modern yet pretty smoky eye, which is perfect for the spring time!

L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Waterproof Mascara: Mascara should be worn during all seasons & at all times. No ifs, ands, or buts. This one is waterproof, which I like because with the season in transition, I find that my eyes water a bit. So this will prevent racoon eyes.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz: This has become one of my favourite eyebrow products ever created! This fills in your brows perfectly and naturally. It’s also very easy to use and your brows stay in place all day (hash tag: Eyebrows on fleek)!

Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick in Hydrangea: This is one of the prettiest pinky coral colour I have ever come across. Coral lipsticks are my go to for spring. It’s a perfect pop of colour that goes with everything!

Style Diaries: The Crossbody

IMG_0856IMG_0864

I absolutely love crossbody purses. I think that 55% of my purse closet is devoted to different types of crossbodies (which vary in size and colour). This versatile version of the handbag is perfect for travel or everyday wear. This is probably the easiest style of purse to wear as well (hello laziness?). As you can tell by the pictures above, purses are my weaknesses along with rings. I love purchasing these whenever I’m out shopping. The ones above vary from different price ranges ($10-$450). For me, it doesn’t really matter on the brand, the make, the style, or the material…if I love it then chances are I will buy it. With that being said, I stick to smaller crossbodies whenever I’m going to concerts, shows or some event for a few hours. I find that the size is perfect enough to hold the absolute essentials you will need for the duration of the event. I carry midsized crossbodies when I’m out for the day, going to work, going shopping, or casual outings. This is my most used version of the crossbody because you can carry a lot of things you think you might need and you don’t really have to stick to minimal essentials! The last type of crossbodies I love are the large messenger style bags. These are perfect for travelling. You can really fit a lot into the purse and it’s easy to carry around, which is so important when you are travelling. In general, crossbodies are my favourite style of purses to wear and they’re so easy to style!

Below you will find 10 of my favourite crossbodies from different price ranges:

  1. The Cobble Hill Carson by Kate Spade (I own a similar one in red that’s pictured above), $278: This is a classic chic crossbody that can be used for everyday!
  2. The Penny Pebble leather crossbody by Danier$149: I love this because of its zipper details and this is perfect for concerts/shows!
  3. The Duroddell Studded Bow Crossbody by Material Girl (can be purchased at The Bay, also personal favourite brand for crossbodies),$55: This is girly yet edgy. The pop of colour is perfect for the spring/summer time!
  4. The Minturno by Aldo Accessories, $50: This is perfect for traveling and is very easy to incorporate in your daily wardrobe.
  5. The Osini Crossbody by Call It Spring, $35: This messenger style crossbody is perfect for travel or just a day out in the city!
  6. The Classic City Bag by Coach, $278: I love this purse because it’s very simple chic and timeless!
  7. The Amanga Foldover Messenger by Tory Burch, $435: This is one chic crossbody you can wear with anything and wear anywhere!
  8. The Classic Q Flap Percy by Marc by Marc Jacobs, $238: This personal favourite  is perfect for a day out at the mall or a night out at a festival!
  9. The M.A.C. clutch by Rebecca Minkoff, $295: Another personal favourite, this versatile and roomy bag is perfect for everyday!
  10. Designer Lust: Arena Classic Town by Balenciaga, $1765: This fashionista and celeb favourite is the perfect crossbody for travel and is gorgeous (although I would probably use it for everything given its hefty pricetag!).
