3 Hair Trends You Need to Try for Fall

I have been all about trying new hair trends this season! To be honest, I am usually so boring when it comes to my hair. I always look for the quickest and easiest way to get my hair done. But, what I didn’t realize, is adding a few hair accessories is super fast! And it gives the illusion of spending more time on your hair. Which what girl doesn’t want?! Here are 3 of my favorite hair trends you need to try for Fall. (Psst… picture them with cozy sweaters and boots for the complete look!) 3 Hair Trends You Need to Try for Fall: 1. Scrunchies I’ve been all about a cute scrunchie to hold my buns and ponies! They add that a little oomph and seriously come in every color and style possible. I can’t wait to add more scrunchies to my fast growing collection! Here are a few scrunchies I am eyeing for this Fall: (scroll through images and click image to shop) 2. Hair Scarves Okay, hands down my favorite trend out of the 3. Hair scarves are so pretty and just elevate a basic outfit! My favorite way to wear them is with a half up look. I love the look of a silky hair scarf against my beach waves. The best part of a hair scarf is how they make your basic hairstyle look so much more glam! (PS.. they also double as a neck scarf too!) 3. Boho Hair Ties I am SO…

A few weeks back I received an amazing luxe pampering package from Grace & Stella. Now, I’ve never heard about Grace & Stella prior to them reaching out to me. But, I loved how they were a Canadian company with a mission to provide high quality (never tested on animals) skincare and beauty products. And before I forget, this entire box is under $40. Go ahead and shop it right here! Scroll below to read more on what’s in the Grace & Stella box. (And how I use my Grace & Stella products for a luxurious at-home spa routine) Firstly, guys, this box smells beyond AMAZING. I literally left the box open in my living room as an air freshener, lol! The smell alone sold me on this box and I was so excited to dig in and try out all these products myself! Activated Coconut Charcoal Powder I am a self-proclaimed coffee addict who needs her coffee every morning. And because of this addiction, your girl, has yellow coffee stained teeth! I’ve been dying to get my hands on some charcoal powder and was SO excited to see this product in my Grace & Stella Luxe box! This all-natural charcoal whitening powder is made with refined and non-abrasive powder to help lift away stains. And, it’s mint flavored, which is a plus for me!

On an average day, I spend 10+ hours on my computer and my phone! Whether I’m checking emails, scheduling my socials or writing a blog post, my eyes are literally always glued to a screen! By the end of the evening, and before I started wearing BlueReflect Digital Protection Lenses, I used to get killer headaches. I knew it was from staring at a screen all day.

Girly

Dress | Sneakers (similar) | Purse I’ve never been into really girly items, to be honest. But when I saw this cute polka dot dress from Nasty Gal for 50% off I had to try it! Its super lightweight, flattering and SO cute with a pair of white kicks! I also wore it with heels for date night and it was super chic. The perfect versatile Summer dress in my opinion! I’ve never ordered from Nasty Gal before, but have to say, it was a good experience. Super fast shipping and a ton of cute, affordable items! I also snagged a really cute pair of jean shorts, which I’ll show you guys soon! xo Lauren

My Morning Skincare Routine for Dry Skin!

Hey guys! I shared my morning skincare routine on my IGTV and realized I never posted it to my blog! Not sure how I completely forgot, lol. Before this morning skincare routine, I had SUPER dry skin that was prone to breakout and blemishes. I can confidently say this routine has dramatically changed my skin in all the ways I needed it to. Firstly, my skin is now SO moisturized! And secondly, I get a lot less breakouts then I used to. Summertime used to be horrendous on my skin, especially with all the humidity we get here in Toronto. Now breakouts are (almost) a thing of the past! I can also honestly say, I can swear by Tula. I’ve seen their skincare products everywhere and was skeptical, to be honest. But, their Dual Phase Pads I’m using in the video below is a game changer! Watch my video to find out why! 🙂  I’ve linked all the products I’ve used below: Tula Dual Phase Reviving Treatment Pads The Ordinary Salicylic Acid Bioderma Hydrabio Vitamin E Face Cream Woolzies 100% Rosehip Oil (linked similar) Laneige Cushion BB Cream w/ SPF 50 xo Lauren

Currently Crushing On: Oversized Shirts

Top (it’s actually a dress) | Skirt | Sandals | Purse Happy Friday, babes! Lately, I’ve been in a pretty casual mood. Which is super rare for me, I know! Maybe it’s the hot weather. Or maybe my style is changing? All I know is I’ve been living in effortless and casual looks! A recent fave of mine is the oversized shirt. It’s so loose and comfy. Plus, it’s been keeping me SO cool in this super hot weather. I’m also a huge fan of the half tuck. So chic. And, if you guy’s haven’t noticed, I’ve been SO into colors too. I don’t know what has become of me, lol! Of course, this shirt is from Zara! Zara literally never fails to impress cause even this white skirt is from there too! I linked them both above. 🙂 Have a great weekend!! xo Lauren SaveSave

4 Easy Tips You Need to Shop at Boohoo

Top (sold out – similar) | Blazer (50% off) | Skirt I am a big believer in buying trendy threads at cheap prices! When it comes to super trendy pieces, I LOVE shopping at places like Boohoo. They literally always have 50% off  (for real) and they offer a massive selection of pieces. Because I’m a lover of trendy pieces for cheap I wanted to share 4 easy ways to shop Boohoo’s crazy selection like a pro! 4 Easy Tips You Need to Shop at Boohoo: 1. Know all the measurements: Just like shopping at any other online retailer, it’s important to know your measurements. Make sure to take measurements of your waist, hips, bust and keep them written down close to your computer. Then, when you find a piece you love you can make an informed decision on what size to purchase by using Boohoo’s size chart. Also, keep in mind Boohoo is a UK retailer and has the UK sizes listed on each product. Be sure to cross-check the size chart and find what your UK size is by finding your US size. I’m generally a size 8 UK and a size Small and 6 US, for reference. 2. Shop Boohoo’s category “Get the Look” Whenever I’m casually browsing Boohoo, but want to make sure I snag something trendy, I always shop under the category “Get the Look”. Boohoo has made online shopping super easy by categorizing what’s really trendy at the moment.  Currently, under that category, they…
