Summer Lookbook 2015 // Berryprettyjoy (and a surprise!)

Hello my pretty berries!

Long time no blog! I know I have been MIA for months and I have no excuse for that but ya know how it is, life’s been getting in the way and there just seems to be not enough hours in a day for me to do everything I want to accomplish and it’s partially because I am the queen of procrastination. Anyways, the important thing is I am back and I have got a lot of things in store for all of you.

I will try to work really hard on posting more on my blog as well as film videos on my Youtube channel. I just need advice on how you all stay on track with your blog posts while still working or going to school all at the same time.

 

Okay okay back to the topic, so since it’s summer and it’s very hot outside, I thought it’s about time I post a summer fashion segment in my blog BUT okay wait for it….wait for it…..it’s actually a collab with my very good friend Archie! *cheers*hoorahh* =) She will actually be featuring me as her guest blogger in her website and I couldn’t be happier. Her Blog is http://saychiees.com and it focuses on lifestyle, food, books and many more.Screen Shot 2015-06-17 at 11.18.20 PM

She will be posting up the photos and details of all my outfits and where I got them from. You can also check it out on my Youtube channel if you want.

I hope you all enjoyed this refreshing new post as I haven’t done fashion segments or any collabs yet. I would love to hear your comments and feedbacks. Also, don’t forget to check out my Youtube channel if you would like to see the detailed shots of each item that I was wearing in the photos above. Here’s a little preview: (you have to check out Archie’s post to see it in all of it’s glory)

Fashion Inspiration: Winter Edition

Hello my pretty berries,

I’m back today to talk about winter essentials which is a pretty big thing for me since it gets really cold where I live. I wouldn’t say that we get a lot of snow but we get really bad wind chills and cold rain. Not to mention that I have a really poor tolerance with the cold, I’m not even kidding, anything less than 10 celsius is Antartica for me!!

I don’t want to say that I have a coat/sweater addiction but it’s not my fault that parkas and pea coats are essential where I live for the most part of the year. Anywho, I have listed below some great winter essentials in case you are on a hunt for some stylish and comfy outerwear.

 

 

Scarves for days

Okay, so scarves are the number one most important element to dressing up or down any kind of outfit not to mention it looks super cute. It’s also versatile by making it into a shawl or a make-shift hood or make it into an infinity scarf. It keeps me warm and stylish at the same time. Plus scarves are a cheap way to easily switch out if you want to quickly change your look. The photos above are definitely my style, from demure to wild to comfy I love them all!!

 

 

Faux Fur Please

I am so friggin in love with these style and I don’t think it’s going out of style any time soon and frankly I am very happy about that. I like faux fur specifically the vest style. I just think that it makes any simple outfit and takes it to a whole another level plus it faux so that’s a plus too. I love pairing these with a long sleeve that is plain and maybe some dark washed jeans with some black ankle boots.

 

 

Let’s get graphic

There’s nothing better than being able to express your personality in words or pictures so why not plaster them on shirts! I am in love with graphic prints because it adds a bit of your personality without having to speak out loud but there is a border line between okay to totally wacked out. I just think that it shouldn’t over power your outfit (unless that’s what you intend to do then go for it) and having the same colour palette on the the letters/photos in contrast to the colour of the top would achieve a much more calmer approach, I guess that’s just the way I would do it with this trend because you can easily go overboard with it. I can see myself wearing this with probably a loose cardigan or a leather jacket and some black leggings or dark washed jeans (kinda like a biker girl style).

 

 

Baby it’s cold outside

You’ll see below that I have pretty much focus on clothing that are made of thicker material which can withstand the colder weather (midst of winter). I am in love with the coats that has a more A-line or at least has a belt that can accentuate the waist so it gives it an illusion of smaller waist. Also, the “boxy” or cape style doesn’t always look flattering but it does make it look like you have skinnier legs? or maybe it’s just me hehe. The trench coats are more sophisticated and it doesn’t hurt that it makes me look like inspector Gadget.

I hope you all enjoyed my post and be sure to let me know on the comments below what your winter essentials are.

By the way, if you want to check out the coats and scarves just click on the image and it should link you to the site that I found them. I just thought it would be easier to find something similar to what I own since I know for sure that it will be available for you in case you want to purchase them online.

 

Until next time! HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!!

Online Shopping — Canadian Friendly Edition =)

Hello my pretty berries,

 

I am so so sorry I’ve been totally MIA these last couple weeks, I think it’s all the holiday preparation and Christmas shopping that has kept me absolutely swamped. Okay, so speaking of Christmas shopping, I wanted to do some of my shopping online and if you are in Canada then you would understand how hard it is to find Canadian websites that can actually ship to Canada for free. Most sites are US base which mean $14+ for regular shipping that can take up to 4 weeks!

 

Anywho, I get very hesitant ordering online and pay so much for shipping unless it’s a really good deal on that site but I have since found some Canadian websites that may be of interests for some of you. I cannot fully give you a review on any of them yet since I’ve just browsed through them and made some orders on some of them but once I have gotten a full experience with the customer service, delivery accuracy, product variety and site accessibility then I will let you know which works the best.

www.ftbbeauty.ca

www.devucosmetics.com

 

Let me know on the comments below if you have any other sites that are Canadian friendly (in terms of shipping). I like shopping online especially since I don’t get the newest and best products here all the time and the only way to get my hands on them is to buy online.

 

 

Until next time,

Joy
