Tune Love: January 2014

Hiii all,

So today I decided to update a few of my favourite songs once again.  I get super bored of music after awhile so I felt I definitely needed to update this.  You're probably going to see some of the same artists because I listen to a lot of the same bands.  So let me just shut up and get into it.

7. Do My Thang - Miley Cyrus - Bangerz was for sure one of my favourite albums of 2013
11. Luv, Hold Me Down - Drowners - SO EXCITED FOR THEIR ALBUM!!
12. A Song About Love - Jake Bugg - Shangri-La has been on repeat lately
13. Lua - Bright Eyes - Literally my favourite song ever

I love creating these little playlists for you guys.  By the way, I do have an 8tracks account and I have some mixes on there if you enjoy indie or alternative music since that is what the mixes are based on. Feel free to follow me on there.  Also, I am still promoting my tumblr because I have been posting quite frequently on there and have been answering questions and there are a lot of outfits that I do not post on this blog so feel free to check that out.  Thank you so much for reading, you guys are all amazing.

Guest Blogger: Molly on Budgeting Fashion

Well hello beautiful!

Emily has so kindly allowed me post this week, and I am ecstatic! I would like to take this great opportunity and touch on the New Year and the importance of ramping up your pocket for 2014!

Personally, I am pushing myself to make a monthly list of the top five outfit essentials throughout the New Year. I discovered Polyvore (I know, I’m a little late in the game) and love creating inspiration boards! Check it out here! Due to my small budget I just use many of the pieces as a starting point – and look for lower price items when shopping. VIOLA! It’s my virtual shopping list!

That being said, with the New Year I am trying to stay within my budget – and save a little extra dough for the big-ticket items. I have been looking to save extra money in other places lately, and have discovered the dangerous land of store credit cards.  I’ll be the first to admit I get caught up in the 20% store savings with an application. My parents sat me down recently about my spending habits, and I did research on how this affected me. See the light. Read about it. Eek!

Like I said, making small adjustments in your finances can allow you to save up for other items. I am personally saving up for my first Tory Burch! I am hoping to have this beauty by March 15th! Don’t you just love it??? Simplistic, gorgeous….extremely pricey.  I am getting mine in the mid camel color – while hoping for a sale! Here it is.

What are you saving for? How are you budgeting? Feel free to check out my blog for more tips and tricks…I will continue to be checking in on my blogger friend Emily.

Enjoy your New Year my fashion friends!



I would like to thank Molly for contributing to my blog with this amazing guest post.  I highly recommend you guys follow her on her blog!  I hope you guys enjoyed this post and I'm looking forward to hearing your opinions in the comments below!  Thanks for reading and following xx

Yeezus Concert - December 23rd 2013

Hi everyone,

So even though I am writing this in 2013, I know it is being posted in 2014!  So happy 2014 everyone (I know it's super lame to pre-write posts but hey I have finals coming up and I am a busy girl so might as well do it before and just hit the post button).  Anyways, on December 23rd I got to witness debatably (torn between this and the Arctic Monkeys) the best concert of my life and as you all know I go to a lot of concerts.  

Before I start, I know the negative opinions of Kanye West but unarguably he performed one of the best shows I have ever witnessed.  Not only that, but before the concert I had the same "he's a douchebag" mentailty as most people but after listening to his 15-minute long rant I came to realize that he, like everyone, has more than one side of him.  He knows what to do to get himself respected and recognized, he also absolutely hates interviews which is why he comes off as rude when he is being interviewed but he also has the chill and happy side which is reserved for his fans, family and friends.  I definitely have a much greater respect for him after this and a bit more understanding of how he acts and the way his mind works.  So all hail Yeezus.  

So my outfit: I didn't end up wearing the plaid shirt so I swapped it out for the military style button up around my waist in the second picture.  By the way, Yeezus tour merch is simply amazing.  This was already featured on my style tumblr (shameless plug so you follow me).

Shirt: Yeezus concert // Plaid: Garage // Button Up: Silence + Noise - Urban Outfitters (Old) // Leather Leggings: Wilfred Free - Aritzia // Shoes: Hibou - Little Burgundy // Bag: Tory Burch

The actual concert was amazing.  The crowd was extremely pumped and it was an amazing energy.  The opening act was Kendrick Lamar.  He is an amazing rapper who is all for changing the world by getting troubled youths (as he is from Compton, California) out of the streets and into a safer and better place.  His set was amazing and he was extremely energetic and fun to watch.  Above is a video of one of my favourite songs he has called Swimming Pool (Drank).

After that obviously the main man: Kanye West came out to perform.  His performance was absolutely amazing and as it was the last show he did bring out a special guest towards the end: DRAKE!!! He did most of his set in different (probably super expensive) masks up until the song Jesus Walks. The whole thing was more of a production than a concert.  The concert was broken up into different stages like "Rising", "Falling", "Seeking" and it was extremely Catholic based (as Kanye is a strong Catholic).  It was amazing and I could have asked for a better 2 hours and 30 minutes of my time.  Above I put a few videos because well I just couldn't choose one moment.  In order the songs are: Forever & All Me with Drake (a bit of All of the Lights), Blood On The Leaves.

I had the best time and I hope all of you get to experience a concert like this.  Regardless of your thoughts about Kanye West, he is Yeezus and he puts on a show or production like nobody else.  Thank you so much for reading.  I hope you enjoyed this post and remember that Yeezus loves you and so do I. xx
