When September Ends: This Month's Favourites


Another month is trailing to the end. September has treated me well and I enjoyed this month more than I thought I would have. 

Here are a few of my favourite things this month.


 Top to bottom: Maliboo, Chi, Push Up, Celebrity Skin

Liquid lipsticks have been all that I have been wearing on my lips. In fact, liquid lipsticks have taken over my lip collection. My favourite colours are Maliboo from Kylie Cosmetics, Chi by Karruche from Colourpop, Push Up from Nyx cosmetics, and Celebrity Skin from Jeffree Star. 
If you have read my previous post, you would know that I switched from using mascara to using false lashes for everyday use. I have been obsessed with using Ardell's Demi Wispies. These lashes look natural on and they are reusable up to 15 times. 

I have been using a lot of bronzer that I've already hit pan on my Kat Von D Shade and Light palette. The shade that I used so much is called Subconsious.


Plain white tees are so versatile. I haven't really noticed, but the majority of the tops I own are white. 

Bomber jackets have been in style for quite some time now. I just love the sporty street style it gives to any outfit. 

My shoe collection has grown immensely throughout this whole year. Because I am now back in school, I have been reaching for comfort. I gravitate towards sneakers more than anything. Adidas is really killing the shoe game. My favourite shoe would have to be these NMDs in the tan colourway with the hint of coral pink at the back.  


I think that speaks for itself. 

Chokers have made its way into my Instagram feed, that I've been inspired to buy a few myself. I love how it ties an outfit together despite how it is just a suede string or ribbon around the neck.

I really love thrifting and finding new items for fairly cheap. I love browsing through local Facebook groups that sell preloved items and clothing bought on impulse. I recently discovered this app called Carousell. It is a platform similar to Poshmark for buying and selling preloved clothing. I've gotten a lot of cute pieces brand new with the tags on. I definitely recommend browsing through Carousell because you'll ever know what you find!

Frank Ocean's album Blonde released in late August and I've been listening to it non-stop. My favourite songs are Pink + White, Solo, Skyline To and Futura Free.

I hope that you enjoyed this month as much as I have! I also hope that you enjoyed perusing through this post.

September Collective Haul ♡


Hello blogosphere! 
I did a lot of damage to my bank account this month, but it is worth it because I got tons of cute stuff for my wardrobe and makeup collection. 

I got tons of things ranging from fashion and beauty to totally miscellaneous items. 

-   -   -

For clothing and accessories, I got two bomber jackets, a blanket scarf, white boyfriend jeans and grey girlfriend jeans (both of which are not in this post.)

I got this pink bomber jacket from this app called "Carousell". It's a place online where you can post your preloved clothing and sell it. I got the bomber brand new with the tags for only $25! A really good deal because it retails for $43. 

I also got this black bomber jacket from Garage. It retails for $69, and it was on sale for $49! I love the whole bomber jacket trend. It's super perfect for the fall season. 

 Aritzia had a warehouse sale early this month and unfortunately, I was unable to go myself. I got this scarf brand new from someone that when to the sale and decided to resell. 
This scarf is called the Gloomy Days blanket scarf by Wilfred

As far as makeup goes, I'm super happy with my purchases. 

I got the Lorac Pro To Go palette. I love it so much! It's super compact and pigmented. 

 I have an obsession with lashes. I switched from wearing mascara to just putting on strips of lashes. I just find it easier and I feel like it looks fuller than applying mascara. 

Surprise, surprise! Another Kylie Lipkit. I finally got the Kylie lipkit in Exposed. A really nice warm-toned neutral. 

 If you know, or not, I collect Disney Tsum tsums. My collecting addiction has died down a tad bit, but i really like this month's Tsum tsum collection. I got Ursula from The Little Mermaid and Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty. 

If you follow me on Instagram, you would know that I had a trip down to Portland. My older cousin has this journal where she keeps her daily thoughts and ideas in. I felt inspired by her, so I got these really cute notebooks from Winners. 

Last but not least, I got this skull candle holder from Daiso! Just $2 for some really cute room decor. 

I hope that you liked my little collective haul post!

Dope Taupe


  I have been feeling inspired by the whole bomber/varsity jacket trend. As I'm curating this post, I realize that in my previous outfit post I'm wearing another bomber jacket. I'm super obsessed with the outerwear that soon enough I'm pretty sure that I'm going to be collecting different styles of bombers. On the bright side, the fall and winter season is approaching which is the perfect excuse to star accumulating cold weather pieces. 

I have been inspired by a lot of monotone and muted colours in my outfits lately. I haven't found myself wearing much colour now that summer is (not technically, but) over. Super excited to finally pull out all my sweaters, cozy up with cuddles and PSL.

Bomber: Forever 21
Shirt: Old Navy
Choker: Thifted
Mom Jeans: Garage Clothing
Shoes: NMDs from Adidas
Lip Colour: Lolita by Kat Von D

I hope that this week hasn't been too hard or frustrating for you!

With Love, Kathleen


Who What Wear


It's that time of the year again, it's back to school season.
I took the summer semester off, so it was a really nice break. 

Here is what I wore on the 3rd day to school. Super laid back and yet a hint of girly-ness with the feminine bomber and t-shirt dress. 

 Bomber: Who What Wear (Target)
Choker: Thrifted
Dress: H&M
Shoes: Adidas Superstars

 During the middle of August, I went on a road trip to Portland with my family. Oregon is known to have no tax and of course, I did a little shopping. I love going to Target because they have tons of cute finds. I found this bomber on display and I had to get it. It's thin and versatile. Perfect to jazz up a monotone outfit. 

I hope that you enjoyed the summer as much as I did! I also wish you luck if you're going back to school. 

With Love, Kathleen
