Hi guys!

I’ve fallen head over heels in love with this bodysuit/skirt combo ever since I picked it up a few weeks ago. I’ve been waiting for a perfect warm spring day to wear it, and thankfully Wednesday was gorgeous so I was able to bust it out! The whole outfit looks really pretty and feminine, perfect for a little lunch date downtown, and that’s exactly what Peter and I did on Wednesday afternoon. He had the day off because his truck was in for repairs so we took advantage of the perfect weather and snapped some pictures for the blog and then went for lunch!

My sickness (flu? strep throat?) is finally 100% gone!! So I’m excited to be able to enjoy this weekend without being cooped up in the house. I’m all healed up just in time for our City’s big music festival, its running this weekend and the next so I’m thrilled I’ll actually be able to attend!

Do you guys have any exciting plans coming up? I’d love to hear about it. Let me know in the comments!

Thanks for stopping by ❤

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Todays outfit is one that I wore to a local event last night for Fluers De Villes at Mapleview, I’m going to recap the event for you in Fridays blog post so I don’t want to spill too many details. If you guys have me on instagram you have probably already seen a few behind the scenes snaps I added to my story last night 😉 It was a truly stunning event.

Anyways, I picked up this little blouse last week and fell in love with it instantly, its very feminine, and super flattering…especially through the waist! The slight peplum detailing has just the right amount of volume without being over the top, the look is very stream lined and flirty. Banana also came out with a matching ‘soft short’ (the ones I mentioned in my April favs post) which would look so cute paired together for a Sunday brunch or baby shower.

Also, high five to anyone who noticed that my hair is different in today’s post! I finally changed it up and I’m sort of loving it, so you”ll probably be seeing more of it this summer ❤

Thanks for stopping by, and I’ll see you Friday 🙂

April Favorites!

False Lashes / Rose Mask / MAC Lipstick / Keyboard CaseWaikiki Candle / Roses / OTS Top / Crossbody Bag / Soft Shorts

 

Kiss Lashes – in style ‘Shy’

I don’t wear false lashes daily but I am one to break them out for a special occasion or a photo shoot. I love the way they add definition to my eyes without having to fuss with liquid eyeliner or layers and layers of mascara. This brand/style in particular feels super light weight and flexible on my lash line (no stiffness here!) and looks whispy and natural once applied, they are perfect!

The Body Shop – Rose face mask

This mask is my newest obsession, I have been applying it almost nightly before bed. You can actually see the rose petals in the mask which is really cool and it has skin plumping properties that make your skin soft, smooth and energized.

How I’ve been using it:

  • About an hour before bed I’ll wash my makeup off and apply this mask to my clean damp skin
  • After about 30 minutes I’ll take a clean face cloth and wet it with warm/hot water, and then slowly wipe the mask off my face
  • Once my mask has been removed I splash my face with cold water (to close the pores) and then tone and moisturize my face as usual before bed

Then I wake up looking and feeling super refreshed. I’ve been getting a lot of compliments on my skin since I added this into my routine!

MAC Lipstick – in shade ‘Please Me’

I’m sure you guys have noticed by now that I’ve been wearing this shade in almost every outfit post for the month of April…Ooops! I bought it recently and quickly found out it’s the perfect everyday pinky/rose shade.

Ipad Pro Keyboard Case 

You. Guys. If you have an IPad Pro this keyboard case is a game changer, it literally turns your IPad into a mini computer! First of all its super affordable, very high quality for the price and it soooo cute! They have every shade of case to match every colour so you can get one that matches (No black Apple keyboards for us!) I have gotten soooo many questions/compliments on this thing. I’m actually using it right now, as I write this post from a hockey arena (Peter’s playing!). It makes working on the go so much easier – and lighter. No more carriying my heavy laptop around to do work while I’m out, having a mini IPad laptop is honestly so perfect!

Bath & Body Works Candle – in scent ‘Waikiki Beach Coconut’

The definition of summer in candle form…not even exadurating, you have to smell it for yourself! I have the candle on my bed side table and I haven’t even lit it yet but it still smells up my room just enough.

Yellow Roses 

Who doesn’t love roses? I feel like I’m always obsessed with roses but now that its warmer out I’m loving yellow roses, they brighten up my room and stay looking fresh for much longer then my old go-to, tulips.

 Off The Shoulder Tops

My Fashion picks should come as no surprise since they are things I’ve been wearing non-stop on the blog this past month. Off the shoulder tops are all I’m buying right now, I actually have a problem haha! I just love how flattering they are and how they look good on every body type. It’s a very feminine meets sexy kind of look, I love it.

Crossbody Bags

Now that I’m not lugging around a hat, scarf and mitts, I’m loving my cross body bags again. They’re the perfect size to carry the essentials while I’m out and about. Runnning errands or shopping trips arnt as fun when I’m carrying around a heavy tote bag.

Banana Republic Soft Shorts 

Okay I don’t think ‘soft shorts’ is the official name for these shorts, but I call them that because they’re super comfortable and soft. I buy this style of shorts every year from BR because they can be easily dressed up, but also cuffed at the seam and worn casual to a BBQ. It’s the most versatile short I own, hands down!

 

Thanks for much for reading guys!

My Current Hair Care Routine With OMORFIE!

omorfiecollab

Happy Friday Friends,

Today I’m partnering with OMORFIE to share my updated hair care routine with you guys. I straighten my hair every single day and am always on the lookout for a product that can give me a silky sleek look…which is a lot harder then you would think! My hair is naturally thick, wavy and frizzy, so it takes a good quality straightener to do the job, and the ENA does just that!

OMORFIE

OMORFIE is Based in the USA, Australia and soon Greece(which means free worldwide express shipping!) and they have created the ultimate effortlessly chic hair styler called ENA. This straightener has rock solid ONYX Tourmaline plates for controlled heat application and a silky smooth finish. They use 100% eco-friendly packaging and donate a portion of every purchase to the World Wildlife Fund. I am so proud to be an ambassador for a company who does their part in this world, and I’m so excited to be sharing them with you guys today!

My Hair Care Routine

  • After a shower I use a wide tooth comb to get any knots out of my hair before massaging a hair oil into the ends of my hair, this prevents dryness and heat damage.

Tip: avoid the roots of your hair with oils because extra oil just weighs the hair down and makes it look dirty faster.

  •  After that I blow dry my roots and let the ends air dry (if I have time!) to give them a break from the heat. Since doing this, my hair feels much healthier and I have a lot less breakage then in the past.
  • Once my hair is completely dry I section off my hair into layers (starting at the bottom) and begin to straighten layer by layer working my way to the top. My ENA heats up in just seconds and gets my whole head completely straight in 12 minutes – and my hair is thick, so it would be even faster on normal to thin hair!

Tip:  If you are looking to grow your hair long and strong, I have had amazing results from taking Biotin supplements! My hair has become much healthier from adding them into my beauty regimen. (**Just be sure to ask your doctor before adding any supplements into your routine)

OMORFIE was kind enough to give you a discount code for $10 off on their website!

Use code ‘Blond’ at checkout ❤

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Hey Guys,

Sorry for the delay on this post, I’m not sure if it was a glitch in the system or what, but WordPress wasn’t letting me upload any pictures to this post until right now! Crazy, but I’m glad it’s all figured out. For today’s post I’m trying out the whole ‘statement sleeve’ trend that’s insanely popular these days, and showing off a few more of my Express purchases from their big sale over the weekend.

I snagged this cute little crop sweater and long dainty necklace for 40% off, and I am so happy with them! The sweater is the perfect weight to transition into my summer wardrobe, I can just picture myself wearing it all summer with high waisted shorts and a cute felt hat! I love that the bell sleeve dresses the sweater up so you don’t need too many other accessories paired with it. OH and before I forget, this necklace was marked down to $10 and then 40% off, so I ended up paying $6 for it….which was a deal of the century considering how simple it is. Its the perfect layering piece over a plain tee and jeans, and even pairs well with shorter necklaces, like how I layered it in this post.

Enjoy the rest of your week, friends!

Thanks for reading ❤

Hey friends,

We made it to the long weekend and I couldn’t be more excited!! I just want to say happy Easter (in advance) to all of you lovely people, and that I appreciate every single one of you for coming back to my blog daily or even weekly to read about what I’m into or what I’m wearing. You guys are honestly the best, so thank you for your continued support ❤ ❤ With that being said I would love to write about what you want to see, so if you ever have any suggestions for posts you’d like me to write, they are always welcome in the comments or you can even e-mail me at theblondecloset@hotmail.com

Okay lets talk about this outfit because I’m loving olive green these days. I bought these jeans at Old Navy(I know, shocker right?) and they are already sold out! So that must be an indicator that they’re going to be trendy for spring/summer this year. I wear a lot of white tops & blouses in the summer so I love a good coloured pant that I can pair with them, and these jeans fit the bill. The green and white give a fresh feel to this outfit and I love the way my neck scarf and jean jacket ground the outfit with the splash of navy blue.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!

OH! and before I forget, keep a look out for the announcement of the stationary giveaway winner on Instagram today. I will be tagging the winner in the original giveaway post 🙂
