Trends: Thigh High Slits

It's been a while since I've done something on fashion trends.
Let's get started with this trend: Thigh High Slits.
I swear slits are one of those trends that will never die.  They just start getting higher and higher! 

Being 5'2, I'm not sure if I'm going to embrace this trend this summer.
Maybe I start out with a starter piece and go from there.

Here are a few fabulous ladies rocking the trend: 
Rihanna rocking an amazing dress from her river island line.
Maria Menounos in a canary yellow dress at the Grammy's.
Jennifer Lopez at the Grammy's look at that leg!

Would you rock the thigh high slit trend?

Every Girl Needs a Great Blazer!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Express Canada for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
Take a look in your closet, how many blazers do you own?
Would you believe that I own over twenty different blazers!
YES.. you heard me correctly!
I understand that twenty may be excessive to some but I'm a strong believer that every girl should at least own one great blazer. Whether it's cropped, boyfriend or tailored cut.
A good blazer is perfect to throw on to jazz up any outfit.
Have you ever walked into a store and found a blazer that fit you like a glove!
That's how I felt when I walked into Express Canada.

I found a blazer that didn't need to be cut or tailored and also complimented my skin tone.
I know that this this cheesy but I honestly feel like this blazer was made for me!
This picture was taken right after my movie date with my boyfriend.

Adding a deep coloured wine blazer was the perfect item I needed to break up my all black outfit.
It was definitely the focal point of my outfit.
My favourite thing about the jacket is the different colored lapel, material and length.
I can admit it, I'm short. I didn't need to cuff this blazer a lot because the arm length was perfect.
If I wore this blazer out for New Years Eve, I would pair it with a cute sequin dress!
It's hard to see but I wore these awesome Covered Wedge Bootie which is also from Express.
I love this shoe because it has a hidden 2" wedge heel. It zips at the side and has a skid resistant outsole.
Perfect for the Canadian winters!

Introducing Footzyrolls!

Back in June, I made a promise to myself.
Start wearing heels occasionally!

I'm now in my late 20's. I don't look it, I know. 
I don't wear heels at all. My shoe collection is insane!
Wedges, platforms and pumps. You name it I have it.

My biggest issue is my low pain tolerance. Don't laugh! I can't handle the hassle of breaking in a new pair of shoes. I don't do blisters at all!

Thankfully, I was given the opportunity to try out a pair of footzyrolls.
The innovative shoe brand, Footzyfolds, makes traveling in style easier with their lightweight, foldable and rollable shoes & accessories.

 I know some of you out there are wondering how does foldable flats help me with my heel situation. These can easily be folded into my purse or tucked into my desk at work!
Each shoe comes with a gorgeous box or our new cylinder packaging, your Footzyrolls, a beautiful shoe bag for your heels, and a cute drawstring pouch to put your stylish Footzyrolls into when you need to put them in your small bag.
Basically, I don't have to leave home without them. I decided to go with the leopard loafers because I love animal print. This particular shoe can be found in the sale section.

The shoe sizes start at 4.5 and go up to 11.5:
Extra Small fits a woman's US Shoe size 4.5-5.5

Sally Hansen: Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips Review

One of  my favorite nail inventions is definitely nail polish strips. They come in various colors, styles and finishes. I have tried various brands and hands down Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips has been the best so far.
The styles above are from the Sally Hansen's Collaboration with Canadian Singer-Songwriter Avril  Lavigne.

803 Purr-fect Harmony
Avril Lavigne has partnered with the brand and created 12 new limited edition designs of the revolutionary Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips. These distinct rocker-chic patterns representative of Avril’s personality. 

If you aren't very creative with free-hand nail art, this is the quickest option to get the style you want.
 Each pack comes with two packs of nail polish strips, mini nail buffer, cuticle stick and instructions.

Check out these styles up-close:
Nail Polish Strips Breakdown:

  • Lasts up to 10 days
  • Removes easily with nail polish remover
  • Fashion-forward styles

The formula is dry but made of real nail polish.
It's evident once you peel off the plastic backing.

Size each strip to your fingers before you peel off the backing.
Once you peel off the backing use the strips quickly because they will dry up.

Use nail polish remover to remove the strips.

Suggested price is $9.95 CDN.

Since I'm obsessed with studs, Stud-io Time was my favorite print. The fine details made it look 3D. It looked like I put little silver studs all over my nails. It was definitely a conversation starter. 

The number one thing I would suggest is to have patience with these strips. Apply them as close as you can to your cuticle without getting it on your skin.

This picture was taken on day 4. As you can see there is no lifting or discoloration of the strips. Each strip is carefully crafted and I think the long lasting factor due to each strip being thin.

I've tried another brand that was thicker and by day 2 it either lifted or fell off. In other words it was a waste of money.

Overall I am excited I'm very pleased with these strips and excited to try other styles.

Colored Denim is back!

I remember rocking my first pair eight years ago.
Ugh...I sound old!
Anyways they are back and hopefully here to stay.

My favorites are the "stretchy" kind. You know the ones that don't feel like they are cutting off your circulation.

I wore my favorite pair on a date to the museum with my BF. YES.. That's a REAL dinosaur in front of me.

From my experience H&M, Marshalls, Winners and Forever 21 have the best fit for all body types.

Do you like colored denim?
