The Nude Nail

The Nude Nail // Mocha and Moccasins

If there is one nail trend I’ve been seeing a lot of lately, it’s got to be nude nails. I stopped painting my nails when I went to school for Baking and Pastry Arts, but I’ve slowly been starting to paint them frequently again. I recently picked up a nude shade called ‘113 Sandstorm‘ By Sally Hansen. It was on sale for $4.99 at the drugstore, and I’m a fan of the Insta-Dry line, so it was a great purchase! The brushes for the Insta-Dry line are amazing – they are wider than usual, and they cover the entire nail through the way they shape around the edges of the nail, if that makes sense?

Vlogging & Easter Weekend

Hey everyone! I feel like I have’t blogged in forever, well, it’s only been 8 days, but it really does feel like forever. I finished my last exam and now I’m done with school. I didn’t graduate or anything, but I was taking part time courses and to be honest, they didn’t keep me very interested, so I don’t think school is in the cards for me right now, but that might change in a few months… we’ll see! I like updating you guys with what’s been going on with me, and I had the idea of vlogging my Easter weekend last week. I filmed a short explanation of why I was gone for a bit and I shared things like my family Easter meals, going to church, etc. If you want to watch the vlog, click here to be redirected to my Youtube page, or watch the video below if you can. While you’re over there, don’t getter to subscribe (: I loved putting the video footage together and using some fancy editing techniques, so I hope you guys enjoy the video!

Easter Weekend Look

Fashion: Easter Weekend Look // Mocha and Moccasins

Trench coat: Zara – Shirt: Smart Set – Leggings: American Apparel – Boots: Fergilicious

I wouldn’t consider myself a fashionable person, but when a special occasion comes, I love getting dressed up. Every year during Easter, my family likes to go to church a few times throughout the weekend. I knew Sunday was the big day, so I planned this somewhat fancier look for the daytime. It still hasn’t warmed up very much in Ottawa – we’re still sitting under 0C and it was snowing earlier today, so a jacket was essential. I love the detailing on this Zara trench coat that I’ve had for a few years, but it’s only been worn a handful of times. The shoulder detailing is what really sold me on it. I kept my makeup simple and neutral, and as for my hair, I braided it down the right side, from top to bottom. I love this look and I’m slowly getting better at it, but I hate that poofy little bit at the end. How do I make that go away?!
