REVIEW | ALIEXPRESS BIKINI HAUL

We’ve all been seeing super cute bikinis with summer approaching and I couldn’t resist browsing around online. Some popular destinations are Zaful and Cupshe but I had a hunch that I had seen some of those designs for cheaper, and that would be on Aliexpress! Always down to save a couple of extra bucks, I decided to place a few orders for my tropical vacation coming up. I’ve always wondered if ordering from Aliexpress would be safe and legit and through this test I would recommend ordering from Aliexpress. Only somethings though… there are some things I wouldn’t order; this post will cover the bikinis I have ordered. Here is everything you have ever wanted to know about ordering from Aliexpress!

DIY | Pineapple Embellished Top

Whew! Summer is passing by wayyy too quickly! I can’t believe its already mid July! It makes me sad that there’s only a month and half left of sun and warmth. But then again its been quite chilly here in Toronto and thanks to certain people I’ve been stuck with a cold the last week. I’m feeling a bit better and realized how much I’ve neglected my blog and nothing better than to come back with a DIY tutorial for you guys. Here is a SUPER simple way to spice up any old tank or shirt in your closet with summer sunshine in the form of pineapples. Enjoy!

Inspiration | Pineapples


Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS!

Haha, my inner child just came out; but who am I kidding, I’m like a little kid everyday!

Sooooo……Is it just me or is there an abundant amount of pineapples, les ananas and a major craving for pina coladas everywhere? I do love pineapple and like how its a great refresh on the usual summer fashion fruits of watermelon and cherries. Though consuming wise, I would take a watermelon over pineapple any day. There really is nothing more refreshing than biting into a slice of watermelon on a hot summer’s day.

Side note: Super in love with the navy blue shorts with the cute pom pom trim! Anyone know where I can get a pair?

STYLE | TRIANGL

Triangl, I’m super in love.

I first discovered Triangl on a bored day scrolling through my Instagram ย feed and after that I saw it popping up everywhere! The distinctive black outlined bikinis were appearing and slowly taking over my social media feeds and good for Triangl! They’ve done a tremendous job marketing their products and I can’t get over the perfect blend of cute, sporty and practicality. Why hasn’t someone thought of making swimsuits out of neoprene before? My only familiarity with neoprene was through my experiences of wetsuits…and lets just say those neoprene days were less than glamorous. Regardless, I think it’s an interesting change for a bikini to be created from a performance material such as neoprene and are loving the results coming from Triangl! Super minimalistic but eye-catching with the bold contrast colours.
I did a little research on Triangl Swimwear reviews and they seem to be small boob friendly (YAY) and good quality (which is a must!). Nothing is less flattering than a nip-slip or the buns hanging out. Absolute worst bikini tragedy has got to be that moment where you have your best Halle Berry impression, coming out of the water as a bad ass sexy Bond Girl, anddddddd you have the droopy bikini bottom. ABSOLUTE WORST! Fitted neoprene bottoms seem like a perfect way to work around that problem. And don’t try to deny it, everyone’s had that unfortunate experience, you just aren’t the one looking at your backside my friend.
Do I see this Australian brand being just a passing trend? NOT a chance! I hope its here to stay for a long time! Summer forever <3
I would love to get my hands on a set from Triangl, but am currently having some trouble deciding which one. Kind of in love with all of them but definitely have narrowed it down to Coco Moonbeams, Tilly Sunburst and Penny Wanderlust.
Which style is your favourite? Leave it in the comments below!

Inspiration | Fringe

I like fringe, but a lot of people would probably associate it with the mid-west and the cowboys with those ol’ leather jackets and fringe for dayssssss. Fringe usually reminds me of the fabulous 1920s with those flapper dresses, but that might just be me wishing I could attend a legendary Gatsby party across the river. Allow me to refresh you with its modern reincarnation in stylized pieces that you’ll want to have in your own wardrobe. Word of warning, long fringes, both bangs and actual fringes on garments both look great but are a tangled nightmare. STEER CLEAR!
Fringes are a perfect addition to any music festival look this summer to add a little extra flirty movement. It’ll make those hips look like they’re shaking a lot harder than you actually are to draw all those ogling eyes. Happy hip swinging!

INSPIRATION | PEARLS FOR DAYS!

Seeing all the new spring colours in stores has me begging for summer to come ASAP! I’ve been craving the sunshine and 20+ degree weather, but sadly winter is here to stay for another five weeks (at least). With the upcoming spring trends I’ve noticed a surge of interest in pearls. Usually when I see pearls it just reminds me of my grandma’s pearls, not really my style. But the modern take by Sophie Bille Brahe has me craving for some pearl and gold accessories. Definitely in love with the pearl bar earrings, if only my ears were pierced….sigh.
You can buy her pieces here.

Summer must be a music fanatics favorite season. Music festivals and concerts left, right and center, one has got to pick the perfect summer festival outfit. Having just been to an outdoor concert the other day, I needed the perfect festival outfit. Who better to look at for inspiration other than Isabel Marant? A lot of easy DIY projects for a unique concert outfit can be inspired from her RTW SS13 line. Loving the boho-western vibe which pairs beautifully with the festive air of summer fun!
