My name is Mikayla! I'm a 22 year old University Graduate with a passion for all things beauty. I stumbled into the online beauty community a year ago and have been obsessed with youtube videos and blogs ever since. After watching hundreds of videos over the past year I figured it was about time I joined the community and posted my own thoughts in my own little space. I'm also recently graduated, unemployed and headed for college in September.

I really enjoy all things beauty, and I really like telling my friends what I think about products so writing them down just felt natural. To me, make up isn't something that you wear to make yourself look prettier, it's something you do on yourself for yourself. It has the power to give you strength to tackle a rough day, the courage to find your inner confidence and sparkle like every girl is meant too.

Other than beauty, I love fashion. Beauty and Fashion are the keys to my heart, along with a great deal. I'm all about a decent deal, and budget shopping is my favourite.

I can't wait to start this journey with the internet and all of you!

Day Five: Four Back to School Outfits

Saturday, 6 September 2014

In Canada, and I believe the US September 1st is a national holiday- labour day, which is quickly followed by the first day of school. Since my first week of school was only 4 days, I have decided to show you what I wore for my first week of grad school!

Currently in Ontario, it is unseasonably like summer (usually it's like fall right about now) so my outfits have ranged from more fall weather appropriate, to straight up shorts.

For my orientation, I wore these Mint Green pants I got from Maurice's 1 1/2 years ago, and a recent purchase from Stitches I shop there ALL the time! I really like this chevron top! I wore my vans and curled my hair.

For the official first day of school I wore my denim jeggings, not even sure where I got these from.. oops and a thinly knit top... from Stitches. I continued to keep my hair down and curly, really getting my wear out of these curls!
continuing migraine issues prevented me from actually getting a picture the day I wore this outfit... sorry! 
It was quiet warm so I decided on my white capris and my white and black stripped top with leather shoulder pads.. all from Stitches. Even in this lighter wearing outfit it was still quite toasty. I did wear my hair down with a headband and super soft curls, but since I came home and went to bed I wasn't able to get a picture :(

Today, it was supposed to reach the low 40's with the humidex.. aka freakin' hot so I wore my favourite warm toned hunter green shorts from my trusty store Stitches and a warm toned coral chiffon blouse.. surprise... Stitches. Since it was hot, and I was still a little sensitive from my migraine, my 3rd day hair was thrown up into a top knot.
That migraine was a killer! but I got all the outfits photographed!
