Un peu de neige et de francais

Imagine my surprise when I woke up this morning to see this...

SNOWWWW!!!! I got super excited and it made me start thinking of Christmas and snow angels and snow ball fights and skating and skiing and walks in the snow! I walked to class that day with the biggest grin on my face, since our street had literally transformed over night, and everything looked beautiful! Of course, it meant now was the time to start dressing warm and cozy! So here was my outfit today:

 Scarf: Gap, Sweater: Lola's Closet, Jeans: American Eagle, Boots: Aldo, Ring:

The snowier weather also means appropriate outerwear, of course! I love berets as a cold weather hat, since they add an cutesy, feminine touch to any outfit, especially with a bow detail like the one below. They also let you channel your French side! C'est chouette, n'est ce pas? <3

 Peacoat: Le Chateau, Scarf: pashmina, Hat: Forever 21

Do you enjoy fresh snowfalls as much as I do?
Stay lovely! <3

Hello : )

Hello everyone, thank you for stopping by my blog! I'm very new at this, but it's something I've definitely been wanting to try for a long time. I've just always been afraid to start...I feel like having a blog is a bit like having a diary for everyone to read, so it's a little intimidating sharing your most intimate thoughts with so many people! But by writing this blog I hope to get to know myself a little bit better, as well as connect with you, and many other beautiful people in this world!

My goal with this blog is to share my thoughts about beauty, inside and out...As well as ways to continue to grow that beautiful side of you. When you put your best face forward, it gives you the confidence to succeed at whatever you decide to do, and when others see your confidence, they're likely to be inspired as well. We should do our best to promote these healthy environments for ourselves and those around us, as it's when we feel good that we're most likely to do good.

This blog is going to be mostly a fashion/style blog and a beauty blog...with smatterings of yoga, dance, tea, artsy stuff, music, nerding out,, because I mean we all love these things, right? And they're all the things that make us beautiful. And I also think some attempted humour will be in order too. I can't wait to start this journey, and I hope you'll join me!

I'll finish off this post with this picture of how I most often spend my Sunday mornings. I'm an early riser (as Blossom from the Powerpuff Girls said, "Early to bed, early to wake, makes a girl smart, pretty, and great!"), and so I always go to Sunday morning yoga at Lululemon, a yoga apparel store that promotes healthy active living. Then, I finish up with either a David's Tea or Starbucks...Since now it's the start of the holiday season, I thought I'd pick up my favourite holiday drink....A Caramel Brulee Latte from Starbucks. It's absolute deliciousness in a 12oz cup. If you haven't tried one already, DO IT NOW! : )

With that, I hope you enjoy the last day of the weekend!
Stay Lovely. <3
