One of the hottest shoe trends last fall, and this spring are menswear-inspired loafers. If you’re wondering how to wear loafers, here’s a look that combines on-trend raw edge denim with a refined patent pair that only cost me $10!

I’m wearing a knit turtleneck top from Ardene (similar turtleneck tank here), raw edge denim from Fidelity Denim, a Louis Vuitton Speedy 35 bag and a pair of Tayden patent loafers from Target.

The key to styling a pair of loafers is to mix up the look. A pair of loafers with a tailored pant and cardigan is too preppy and stuffy. Contrast is key. A pair of distressed denim adds some edge to conservative footwear. You can also wear loafers with a dress, and I love the look of minimalist t-shirt dresses. Again, skip the frilly socks and floral dress, keep it fresh and modern.… View Full Post

Still looking for a Valentine’s Day outfit? A pink sequin skirt is a great piece that is perfect for a fancy dinner or night out. I paired this glittery mermaid look with a subdued white turtleneck, which is ideal for chilly February weather, some simple pumps and a chic Chanel handbag for a feminine, elegant look.

I’m wearing a pink sequin skirt from H&M, a white turtleneck from J. Crew, pumps from Vince Camuto and a classic Chanel double flap bag from Luxe Touch Designer consignment.

Guerlain is a beauty house that evokes nostalgic memories for me. As a little girl, I would steal little pearls from my mom’s Météorites Powder pearls, and to me, they were more precious than real pearls. I still remember the inimitable smell and texture of this luxurious product. I still use the pearls on special occasions today. The classic brand is back with some exciting products, and I’m here to share a Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Makeup review and an exciting giveaway with you!

I’m also excited to establish this post as the first of a “Makeup Mondays” series. Every Monday, I will be sharing beauty tips, new products and tutorials. There will also be giveaways… including a Guerlain giveaway on my Instagram here.

Guerlain’s La Petite Robe Noire makeup collection launched last spring with a line of lipsticks and nail polish shades that are more colourful and edgy. I tested out some products from this range, including some new shades that will launch in April 2017 at Sephora.

One of my top memories from my trip to California was visiting La Jolla San Diego. This oceanfront village is brimming with cute boutiques, restaurants, and old pastel hotels. I fell in love with La Jolla cove, and had to take some photos with the breathtaking vistas complete with sea lions.

I’m wearing a printed strapless dress from Ted Baker’s spring collection and Sam Edelman flat sandals. I was wearing heels earlier in the day when we were walking around the boutiques, but swapped them out for practical flats to explore the cliffside.… View Full Post

With Valentine’s Day only two weeks away, I wanted to share a product that will get you ready for a big night out, or pamper yourself on a night in. I’ve already talked about the Flawless by Friday 5 Day Facial system here, but am excited to share a Flawless in 15 Review and a giveaway of their products! You can also save 15% off anything on the Flawless by Friday website with code NATALIEAST15.

The Flawless in 15 system is designed to get you results in a short time. Put on one of these masks on for 15 minutes, pat them into your skin, and you are ready for your big event! The results are plumping, firming and soothing. If you’ve had one too many glasses of wine the night before, this product will reduce that puffiness and redness, and smooth the skin to create a beautiful canvas.

I really liked how these masks are gold, they look so glam when they’re on. I’ll spare you a pic of me using it in my pyjamas though! The mask easily moulds to your face, but it’s a good idea to just put it on and lay down for the 15 minutes so that the ingredients don’t run down and stay locked on your skin. The masks contain honey and gold, which can reduce redness, plump the skin and boost collagen production. I definitely found that my skin felt more radiant and firm after using the product. It’s a great idea to use in the winter time, when our skin is dry and irritated as well. Remember, if you’re interested in trying out the 15 minute facial system, you can save 15% off with my code natalieast15.
