Coachella 2014: Street Style Inspiration


With Coachella less than a month away I have been obsessing with finding the best street style inspo out there. Some of my favorite Coachella Inspiration this year has to have some form of crochet, anything white, short shorts, and the occasional jacket or light vest or cardigan. Having been to Coachella twice already. comfort is my main concern, read the following tips to get you through the heat on one of the most amazing weekends of your life.
White light layers are a great way of keeping the heat away.
Remember to bring a light layer along with you, during the day it may be scorching, but at night a small chill sets in.
If you are at Coachella for the music, and you expect to jump up and down, wear smaller jewelry, there's nothing worse than stabbing the people around you with your sharp long jewelry.
Maxis are totally do-able and in fact encouraged, just remember to wear a lighter maxi, since a heavier one will weigh you down.
Sunglasses are more than an accessory, they will save your life this weekend. Make sure to keep your expensive ones at home though, casualties are bound to happen.
Face Paint, Face Glitter, Face sequins if any of these made you smile, do it, at least you have an excuse.
Bring your boy along, there is nothing better than lying next to him on the grass, while your favorite band plays, as you watch an amazing sunset is taking place (too visual?)
Rings on top of rings and MORE rings, go all out, and don't be afraid to mix metals and styles. The more eclectic, the better the mix.
Wear plenty of sunscreen, I know I sound like a mom, but it is necessary especially if you are going to be out in the sun all day. 
I don't know how girls in sandals do it, but Boots are not a fashion statement, they are absolutely necessary. The more you walk the more dirt you pick up, and dirty feet aren't a good look.
HATS are a great way to shield your beautiful face from the intense sun, just make sure they aren't so big no one can see the band playing in front of you.
Matching top and bottom sets are my favorite fashion staple this year. 
Alexa Chung shows us its all about simplicity. A mid to long sleeve shirt looks great over your bikini top, also if it gets too hot, just take it off.
Coachella is all about having fun and enjoying the music, if you are doing that successfully, you can disregard every single rule or tip in the book!

DIY Geometric Wall Art: The Easiest DIY on the Planet

If you follow my adventures on Instagram you may already know I moved into a new place. Despite all the excitement of finally getting a spot with real wood floors, I came to the sad realization that I don't have an unlimited budget. Obviously, as much as I would love to purchase art that isn't very realistic, so I had to create my own. I am not a great DIYer, in fact this is my first. Simple, quick, and modern and so easy anyone can do it, and I mean ANYONE!
Things you need:
20 x20 Canvas. I got mine at Michaels, but any canvas will do.
Paint Dish or Reuse a Plastic Plate
Painters Tape
Paint Brush  
**The size of your paintbrush doesn't matter in this case, but the smaller the paintbrush, the longer it will take.
Acrylic Paint in your Desired Color
** I wanted a soft and subtle pink so I bought 1 white and  1 red bottle
1 Hammer
2 Medium Length Nails (This depends on the depth of your canvas)
Step 1:  
Section off a square on your canvas with painters tape. Make sure it is smoothed out with your fingers, creases can lead to the paint bleeding. The larger the square the more bold the artwork is, the smaller the more minimalist it is. I liked it right smack in the middle.
Step 2:
I opted for a pastel pink, so in my case I bought white and red. I squeezed 4 parts white and 1 part red onto my paint dish and mixed them together to achieve my desired shade of pink. You can always choose a different color and experiment mixing colors, its pretty fun!
Step 3:
Paint within your desired lines, and set aside to dry. I dried mine for about an hour just to be safe. The whole process takes less than 10 minutes!
Step 4:
Once your canvas is dry, have a friend help you put it against the wall and draw pencil marks on the top where you want your painting to hang. I am no expert, so I simply used 2 nails and a hammer and tried to center them. 

Hope you enjoyed my first DIY ever! It's so simple and I spent a total of $20 on the entire thing! I hope this inspires you to create some geometric art for your home as well!

Emily VanCamp for Elle Canada

The older I get, the less I watch TV. I don't know if this is the case for everybody, but a show really needs to awe me for me to tune in every week. Revenge is one of those shows that completely blew me away, its mischievous plots and twists keep me coming back for more every week. For those who haven't seen it, Emily VanCamp is brilliant, and WHAT A COMEBACK! I am enjoying seeing a softer side of her in this months ELLE Canada, by the looks of it my obsession with pastels will continue for months to come.
