Transitions

Dress, You can find this exact dress on so many online stores/ Shoes, Ebay/ Necklace, Vintage

Hey loves! I wasn’t planning on blogging until I get to Japan next week, but it felt weird being away from y’all for so long. So let’s catch up; my blue hair has faded to green, I can’t seem to fit everything I want (not necessarily need) into my suitcases, and apartment hunting has been difficult and that’s putting it lightly (no one wants my dog), and it’s been a series of emotional goodbyes even though we have skype.

All that aside, I’m excited to start my life in Japan, and I have a good feeling that good things are coming my way there. It’s also made me realize how much my friends mean to me here, and how lucky I am to have them. It’s going to be hard not having them around during a big transition but I hope I’m lucky enough to create bonds there.

This dress arrived in mail a few weeks ago, but it had no card or indication of where it’s from. If you send this to me, please email me! Until I find out the details on this specific company, you all can find this dress at most Asia based online shops. I’ve seen it on quite a few so it shouldn’t be difficult.

Super Dope Barbie

So my boyfriend tells me I wear this sweater way too much and it’s true. It’s so comfortable! Ever since I moved out of my apartment and had to pack up everything, I haven’t bothered to unpack since I’ll just have to do it all over again soon. So I have very little to work with and an excuse to continue to wear my pink barbie sweater all the time.

Stone Fox by Nyx is what I’m wearing on my lips and it’s my favourite liquid lipstick currently. I’m so impressed at how pigmented it is for a grey, blue shade. They usually suck, so I always end up using eyeshadow pigments. I’m going to stock up before I head to Japan!

Chella Fomo

Top, H&M/ Shorts, Eclipse/ Glasses, Dressin

Hey y’all! So I’m moving to Japan in three and a half weeks but I had to leave my apartment a few days ago. So I’m in a temporary home right now. And this all happened unexpectedly so I wasn’t prepared which means I don’t have Internet and probably won’t for a while. I don’t think I’ll be able to get much up as far as blog posts and videos these next few weeks because things are crayyy crayyy and I still haven’t found an apartment in Japan.

But I have for you an outfit I wore on a random hot day a few days ago. And it always feels like a blogger victory when your top matches your wall. But seriously though, do these shades not give you major Coachella Fomo.

Once Upon A White Dress

oliviaaimes22.1 oliviaaimes22.4oliviaaimes22.2 oliviaaimes22.3

I really do love this dress. It was a team effort designing and sewing it with my mom, so it holds sentimental value for me. But this will probably be the last time I wear it because I never did get around to sewing in a lining, and I probably never will. I only have 40 days until I move to Japan and I already miss working on sewing projects with my mom, which feels a bit silly because I’m going to see her tomorrow. And most likely everyday for the next 40 days.

I Just Want To Paint My Face

Top, Random shop/ Pants, H&M/ Boots, Steve Madden

Let’s first address the obvious, my hair is blue. And it took three days of bleaching, toning, and colouring. But now that I’ve done this process a few times, it’s becoming less and less complicated. I don’t recommend you do it yourself in case you guys were thinking, “if Olivia can do it, so can I!” One wrong step and things can go very, very wrong, Like your hair breaking off wrong. But if you do decide to do bleach your hair, do a lot of research! That’s it for my hair rant, and now back to fashion lol.

I wore this top a lot at the beginning of my blogging days, and I got it at a random store in a sketch mall, back in highschool. And now it’s the “it” thing to wear and you can find a version of this in any shop. It’s definitely faded over the years and now I can restock!

A few weeks ago by face had swollen up for a solid week (I don’t know why) and I had refrained from using makeup for a while. It feels so good to bring that girly girl back out. My recent favourite lip products has been the NYX lip lingerie and soft matte lip creams ever since they hit Shoppers Drug Mart here in Canada. I’m wearing the lip cream in the shots above.

I do love makeup. What do you guys think of me posting on the subject?

Top, DIY/ Bra, Lasenza/ Leggings, Ebay/ Shoes, Wholesale Buying/ Necklace, Target

I have a bag full of clothes that I had buried in my closet, labelled as “get rid of.” But rummaging through it after months I realized there are some stuff I don’t want to get rid of anymore, or at least give it one more shot at styling. And these blue leggings was one of them, because my butt looks damn good in them! And yes, I’m wearing lipgloss for the first time since high school, and I’m loving it.

As for the sheer, printed top…I made it out of an old pair of tights! And if I want to find out how you can do the same, click HERE!

Look who decided to come struttin’ into the blogger world again in blue ready for spring…me. But I’m sure you guys didn’t miss me because I’ve been really upping my youtube game these last few weeks ( That is if you’re a subby!). I’ve been DIYing my life since I need to save money for my move to Japan, and I’ve been documenting most of my projects. Join me on my money saving journey HERE! Also, I’m pretty sure my mom dressed me in this exact outfit as a kid. Somethings never change!

Did Someone Say ” Velours Rouge”

Coat, Sammydress/ Boots, Fashion71/ Necklace, DIY

When I saw this red velvet coat/cardigan in the mail, at first I was on the fence about it. It’s not really something I would wear and I didn’t know how I would style it without coming off as wearing sleepwear. I worked with the aspects that I liked, which was the length and cover it provided. Which meant I can wear something a little more sexy. But that didn’t take away from potentially looking like I’m getting ready for bed so I added the one article of clothing that nobody would wear to bed unless your definition of comfort was not of this world …jeans! And this is a vintage pair that I borrowed from my mother a while back and have yet to return. And now this look has become one of my favourites!

And if you’re wondering about the rad wrap necklace that I’m working, check out my video down below! I’ve got an easy and cheap tutorial on how you can DIY it yourself.

Hi my loves! Does this fast-paced, social media driven society get overwhelming for anyone else? I find that when I don’t take a break, my anxiety sky rockets and I start to feel claustrophobic. I’ve been on a roll with my blog posts and youtube since 2016 hit, but if I’m not careful I find that my self esteem and mood is determined by my comments, likes and follows. So I took a much needed break last week for my mental well being, and boy was it a relief! Stepping back and remembering that I am more than my instagram and that it does not determine my self-worth did me some good as silly as it sounds. But I suspect that I’m not the only one who suffers from this new age issue every now and then. Did you know that Social Media Anxiety Disorder actually exists? Man, our parents had it good. All they had to worry about were telephone calls and written letters.

Don’t get me wrong. I love social media when it’s not driving me mad! Which happens to be 95% of the time. It has allowed us to connect with people across the world and share our stories. Like I do on my blog and youtube! So I’m more than delighted to be presenting you with a romantic look I created using a beautiful dress from Sammydress! This was actually my Valentine’s Day look but it’s cute enough for any occasion!

Polette Glasses

Hello lovelies! Today I received my prescription Polette glasses! They are the Maya Pois which I think is the perfect size for my giant eyeballs. I tend to be skeptical when ordering prescription glasses online, so I was pleasantly surprised when I tried these babies on and I could see! Unfortunately, I think in my order I accidentally clicked blue tint (LOL) and the tint is not dark enough to be considered sunglasses for me. And it sucks because I really do love the frame! So don’t accidentally click the tint box, unless you like the semi 70’s vibe. Overall, I do recommend it, especially if you’re on budget and in need of glasses!
