You all know that my days on quarantine have consisted mainly of typing on my laptop, recording Tik Toks, and running to the post office to send a package for a customer (btw if you are a Tropical Statement customer, thank you so so much for supporting my small business). I live in Toronto and … Continue reading Hair Clips Hairstyles
...instead of buying clothing, I've rather focused on self-care products. I think being enclosed for the past 2 months is our perfect excuse for a little splurge and we better use it, ladies.
I haven't been happy with my beauty routine lately despite the pretty well-reviewed skincare products I own. Many times, getting new products is not the solution. We often try to purchase the best beauty products but we forget about the daily habits that are having a long-lasting effect on our hair and skin.
Going back to fashion week for SS20, there were A LOT of suits and dots. Bubble sleeves were...

I haven't been completely happy with my makeup and beauty routines lately.

For the last Fashion Week season (on Fall 2019 where SS20 collections were presented) I worked on a special project with some friends. I had just graduated from my post grad program in Fashion Management and I had a final project where a jeans collection needed to be created from scratched.
Despite a gown is not an everyday piece, major celebrity events like The Oscars influence on trends for Spring/Summer every year. Designers get to show their latest collection to a broad audience (even those not interested in fashion) and it becomes a major opportunity to show their designs on celebrities (OG influencers). A way to give life to designs that basically have just been seen on a runway.
When I heard Shakira and JLo were going to split the Super Bowl’s half time show I found it odd. They are both latino queens but they have such different styles in every aspect, from their image to their music that I could not imagine how they were going to pull it off without the … Continue reading Reviewing the Pepsi Half Time Show from a fashion perspective

Andrea 2.0 has arrived! New year, new me. All that BS splashed on me. I spent the last 2 months contemplating a change of hairstyle and everyone around me discouraged me from doing it. “Don’t do it, you are crazy”, “you’ll regret it"... As I was going thru an emotional rollercoaster (not because of a … Continue reading My New Haircut – Sharing My Mood Board
Another day, another collaboration. It seems high fashion designers are trying harder than ever to reach the masses. I am not complaining, I know well that I am part of the masses and that by having an “expensive taste” I have to carefully choose the pieces I am investing my money in as my clothes … Continue reading Balmain X Puma
I’ve been outspoken lately of my preferences on buying vintage and thrifted designer clothes rather than fast fashion. I used to be the biggest fast fashion shopper and to recommend some pieces on my channel, until I was touched by how harming it is for the environment. My old days as a fast fashion blogger. … Continue reading I sell my clothes on Poshmark!
As I even wrote a post of how excited I was for this collaboration I am now sharing that I decided to return my dress (decision my IG followers help me take after a poll where 50% said return this dress please) At least I can say my tips and tricks post worked! I was … Continue reading Spilling the tea: I returned my Valli x H&M dress
Deciem (the parent company for The Ordinary) is on SALE sitewide until November 30th! 23% off on all of their products, this never happens. What also never happend before is the closure of both site and stores on Black Friday to support the SHOP SLOWLY MOVEMENT. Can I love this company more? Because of it, … Continue reading My favorite products from The Ordinary

You all know I have been low key involved on the sustainable movement of fashion so I haven't really been into fast retailers in a while. That being said, I found Ardene campaign for Halloween was really strong 😂 They had $30 dollars character onesies and they were all over the city. What a better … Continue reading Canada’s not so Wonderland?
There is always a colour we purchase season after season without knowing we have so much of it already. Mine is red! I have good news for you.
