Bergen, Norway

I recently went on a trip to Bergen, Norway to visit some family. I went for a week which wasn't enough time but I fell in love with the city and I cannot wait to go back and see more of Norway. It was  such a different scenery than Canada. It was absolutely beautiful and breathtaking. Here are some photos from my trip that I wanted to share.

Beautiful mountains and sea

Floyen. Such a gorgeous view. 

More of the Floyen area. We went for a nice walk in the woods. 

Enjoying nature with my cousin.

We were fortunate enough to be in Bergen while it was sunny. Which I was told is not often. Norway sees a lot of rain and clouds, usually.

This view never gets old.

The usual rainy day, I loved the fog.

Went to the KODE Museum. I love art so this was a must for me. I fell in love with this mirror and all the colours of the wall.

Edvard Munch art. I am such a fan of his so I was so excited to get the opportunity to see his work.

More Edvard Munch.

The sketch of The Scream, the painting is located in a museum in Oslo.

Anton Graff

Pablo Picasso

Paul Cezanne

Ate these delicious mussels at the Fiske Torget.

Runway Inspiration: Alexander Vauthier Fall/Winter 2014 - 2015

Alexander Vauthier is a new designer to me, personally. I don't know much about him, but this was the first show of his that I watched. I really loved it, I wouldn't post about it, if I didn't. It is a very modern, fun, sexy and edgy show. I feel like these pieces were made for that woman that isn't afraid of fashion but embraces it and she's quite strong.

The following photos are my favourite pieces from the show.

Love how soft the colour is but the cut and shape of the dress is sexy.

Love this piece, one of the best!

How fun is this?! Rihanna would pull this off like no other.

New York & Inglot Review: Eyeshadows

Two or three weeks ago, I got the chance to go to New York, for the first time. The Big Apple (as everyone likes to call it), was a wonderful adventure. I'm in love with the city and it's busy and exciting energy. I was in New York for only 3 days but I had a blast. The first day, I got to explore the city and me and my best friend walked a lot. The second day, I got to see Eminem and Rihanna perform at the MetLife Stadium which was amazing and I miss it. Overall, I can't wait to go back to New York and I already miss it.

The beautiful architecture of New York.

Lillie's Bar. By far, the most beautiful bar I've been to. The staff was so friendly, nice atmosphere. I really want to come back and have dinner here.

Eminem being Eminem, haha. Such an amazing concert. I would see him perform again, in a heart beat. Hopefully, he comes to Toronto! We were in the very front and unfortunately, my crappy phone's camera could not capture much that night.

When I was exploring Times Square, I spotted an Inglot store and of course, got way too excited and pretty much ran in. Inglot is not a very easy find in Toronto, I don't think it's available in Canada. Anyway, I pretty much swatched everything in the store and decided to try the eyeshadows first.

Inglot has a wonderful set-up called the Freedom System. You are free to make your own palette using any of their products. There are so many colours to choose from: http://inglotcosmetics.com/freedom.system/products/657

Love the packaging. It is simple, useful and sturdy.

I decided to purchase a quad of eyeshadows. Colours I chose are #14, #31, #413 and #439. Also, all of their products are Paraben free and not tested on animals.

L to R, Top Row: #413 and #14. Bottom Row: #439 and #31.

Swatches of the eyeshadows.

Overall, the eyeshadows are amazing. They glide on easily and the pigmentation is great. I have worn them on the eyes and they apply just as well and blend together easily. I will be posting a tutorial using the eyeshadows. I can't wait to purchase more shades and also other products that they offer.

Runway Inspiration: Ralph & Russo Fall/Winter 2014 - 2015

The Ralph & Russo show pretty much left me in awe. My mind and heart was in love. This collection is so beautiful, every piece cannot be compared to the next, because they're all equally stunning and yet different, from one another. I think that this show also made me a little depressed - simply because I want everything but can't afford anything!

The following photos are my favourite pieces from the show.

Soft and delicate, perfect combination. Especially in white.

The detail in this piece is INSANE!

I love this piece so much. I think this would be beautiful on Jennifer Lawrence.

That lavender, Those pants. This is pure heaven.

At this point, I was ready to cry.

This colour, the cut of the dress is just perfection.

Black, white and drama!
