High Rise Denim Days!

I never in a million years thought I would be raving about high waisted jeans!  For most of my life, I have always worn low rise everything – skirts, shorts and basically all of my jeans.  Recently I was reading an article by Jessica Alba and she was raving about her new denim label and discussing what different styles of jeans do for each figure.  She said for a figure like mine, which is on the shorter side, I should veer towards high rise and flared pants which will help elongate the figure and is much more slimming on a shorter frame.  So into the stores I went to test out this theory, and I couldn’t agree more.  I came out with these sky high J Brand jeans (seen here) with amazing button details that immediately caught my eye.

I’m typically someone who is a creature of habit and don’t step too far out of my comfort zone, but I thought I would try these out and so far I am loving them.  I have also gotten myself into high rise flare denim which will be up on the blog soon and I can definitely tell you, that my blog will be featuring lots of new denim style :). I wore these jeans with my new Zara Blue Velvet Booties which are all the rage this Fall.  Shop this look below!


Keeping Cozy This Winter!

From the moment I come through the door during the colder months, I immediately step into my slippers.  It’s so nice to have something cozy on my feet when I get inside from some cold winter weather or if i’m snuggled up on the couch with my coffee in the morning.  With the endless options at Muk Luks, I finally went with these festive slippers (seen here), and the lovely ladies at Muk Luks have graciously offered my followers 25% off your entire order with coupon code ‘GILLIAN‘.  Happy shopping:)


Faux Suede Fall Finds!

Nothing screams Fall more than this sleeveless faux suede camel trench by Lucy Paris.  My eyes were immediately drawn to the color, waist detail and deep pockets.  I was so excited to collaborate with a brand that I love more and more with every piece I try on.  With their shopping website coming available soon I wanted to share what is to come, until then shop this look and similar vest below!

Shoulder-baring craze!


I finally got this outfit up on the blog that you may have seen a few times on my Instagram.  It seems like more and more designers are following the shoulder-baring trend this season, and I’m loving it.   My collection keeps growing!  Everyone that knows me knows that I love bodysuits, so you can only imagine how thrilled I was to find two of my favorites combined into one, a shoulder-baring bodysuit by Twenty!  Worn with this embroidered high waisted skirt by ASOS and Steve Madden sandals.

Sheer Skin Transformation by Ole Henriksen!


Last month the lovely ladies at Preen.Me sent me some new face creams to try by Ole Henriksen.  I didn’t want to post anything until I had tried them for a month straight to see if I noticed any changes.


First off, I did, and now I have to admit that I have become a big fan.  The 3 little wonders package is an AM/PM regimen that rapidly reverses visible signs of aging and reduces sun spots/blemishes.  The collagen booster, which exudes aromas of fresh slices of orange, is refreshing to apply first thing in the morning. The best part is that these are not thick, oily creams that leave your skin feeling more oily than before, they are lightweight natural formulas.


I recently went to Toronto, Canada and forgot to pack my 3 little wonders after I had already been using them for three weeks straight, and noticed by day three of my trip that my skin had gotten dry and lost the smoothness that I had achieved after using Ole Henriksen.


Linked below are all the products I have been using! Try them out:)
