Guess Who's Back, Back again?

Hello Loves!
After quite a long hiatus of over 1 year, I have finally decided to take up my blog again!!! As you can see, I have re-vamped the whole blog. New name, New design and New attitude!

When I first started my blog I was focusing way too much on my stats and followers and have just decided to blog and post about what really interests me and what I really love. I was blogging for all the wrong reasons before, so now I am doing it for me, and for all of my readers. I want to share more than just fashion trends and makeup tutorials or reviews, I want to talk about relationships, love, friendship, travel, and broadening your horizons. Feel free to make requests, ask me questions, and get to know me. I want to get to know all of you as well.

A lot has happened in the last year that I think are absolutely crucial to understanding who I am and what I'm about. The most exciting thing that has happened since I went on hiatus is the fact that I got engaged!! My long term boyfriend proposed in November of 2013 and we are set to get married in July 2015. I am so excited about it and I cannot wait to share with you the whole process so far. I will be definitely posting about themes, DIY's and tips for picking a dress that suites your body type! I'll also post about how to make sure you have happy bridesmaids, since we all know that being a bridesmaid can be amazing and exciting, but can also be a real downer if your bride is really a bridezilla! Look forward to those posts along with more from my wedding journey!

As for the rest of my life, school is finally finished! I am officially a University Graduate with both a bachelors and a graduate degree. School is definitely rough for a lot of us, so don't hesitate to ask for advice for anything school related. After 20 years of schooling, from high school to college and university, I have seen and done it all, from dealing with difficult teachers, to deadlines, to bullies and more. The worst dilemma I think all of us can relate to is waking up in the morning, staring into our closets full of clothing, and STILL not knowing what to put on our backs. It's a struggle not only for students, but for workplace professionals as well. I will be posting about how to make it easier to make choices for everyday depending on where you are in your lives, so look forward to that as well!

With all that being said, I hope you will come along with me on this journey and that you will continue to love and support me and the blog. Don't hesitate to make requests and ask questions. I will try my best to answer everyone and tailor my posts to your needs!

Until next time!

Suzy

Blog Hiatus

Hey everyone,
Unfortunately I have some bad news. I have to put my blog on hiatus. I have a super busy summer ahead of me. My schooling is going to be taking up most of my time. I actually am in school 5 days a week and 1 night a week until the month of August, so there is no way I will be able to post as often as I'd like. I'm already super behind with my posts, as I wanted to continue doing reviews for makeup like topbox and Ipsy, and I had a bunch of spring clothing and makeup hauls coming as well, but I just do not have the time to write up and or film the reviews. I am going to try to post from time to time, I just wanted to let everyone know that my posts wont be regular. Thank you everyone for sticking with me, and I will definitely be back in the future.

xoxo

Platinum Status Fashion Show Outfits

Hello Lovelies!
I know it has been a while since I posted a blog entry and I apologize! Unfortunately I was so busy with school and final exams and a million other things I really did not have time to post anything. I am now done school and I have three weeks off before classes begin again so I will try to post something new at least twice a week!

The first post I want to share with you is about the fashion show which I blogged about previously. The show was absolutely awesome. The models were all sexy as ever and the turnout was great! We are hoping that we raised a lot of money for the Montreal Children's hospital. As soon as I find out how much we raised I will update you here :)

For those of you who were curious to see what I got to wear for the show, we had a professional photographer taking our photos Mr. Pierre Bourgault. A huge thanks goes out to him for taking such amazing photos!!! You can see more of his work here on his website. The pictures came out absolutely gorgeous and I cannot wait to share them with you, so without further ado, here are the outfits ^_^ (I also got the chance to take some backstage photos in all the mayhem, those are also include)

Annie 50

This dress I wore from Annie 50 was just so fun to wear. It was made out of a silk/satin material and was so flowy and fun. Definitely 50's inspired. This would be fun to wear on a night out dancing at a big party!

Shoes: Spring

My backstage photo. Definitely not as awesome as Pierre B !!!


Young & Fierce

This dress was definitely a sexier yet sophisticated look. It was very well structured and didn't show any of the little bumps and lumps we girls are self conscious about when it comes to bodycon dresses. I personally don't think this is my color but the dress fit perfectly.

Shoes: Payless




You can see here the dress is more on the orange side.

Love the cutouts on the side :D

 

American Apparel

This outfit was by far my favourite. It was sexy and fun and none of the models backstage would stop commenting on how fab my chest looked. (I am NOT bragging here, I was SO embarrassed by all the stares!!!!! LOL) But, it sure gave me a confidence boost to strut my stuff when I go on that runway!

Shoes: Payless

 



Red Factory

This outfit by far got me the most praise. Everyone absolutely loved the fierce tiger back top. Unfortunately they no longer have it on their website, so it was probably sold out! Sucks because I would have loved to buy it.

In case you were wondering, my shoes are from Le Chateau circa 2000.
I bought these sooo long ago and am so glad I kept them!

Meow!!!


So that is it for my outfits. I have to say that this was one of the best experiences I have ever had, and I urge anyone with even a minute interest in fashion to volunteer at their local universities for events like this. I participated as a model in the fashion show last year as well and not only do you get to make great friends, wear great clothes, and have a blast, but it is for an amazing cause, which makes it even more worth while. Let me know which of the four outfits was your favorite in the comments below and don't forget to follow me on:
