ZOZO Suit + Free Garments

Wouldn't it be great if you were able to get clothing that fits you perfectly? No more bagginess, or tightness, perfectly made to fit your measurements.
I found a company that alleges to do that.

Last fall, I saw on Instagram that the company Zozo was giving out for free a suit that uses some fancy technology to gather one's measurements. I was skeptical about it but nonetheless, I ordered it, mainly because it was free. It did take about 3 weeks for it to arrived and I later noticed that along with the free suit there was an offer that a free shirt and jeans were included for free once I did my measurements. That's right an outfit made to fit my measurements for free no strings attached!

L'Oreal's Pure Clay Mask & Cleanser | Review

Hi everyone!

How is life? Recently the weather here has gotten warmer and the sun is shining (almost) every day, it seems that April's showers did, in fact, bring May flowers. Mother's day is coming up and I still have no idea what to get my mom. But while I dwell on that will get going with today's post.

For some reason I finished the school year and my skin started breaking out, it is dull and I now can't sleep meaning that I look pale and haggard.
To combat the dullness, if nothing else, I started using some L'Oreal products that I had forgotten about and noticed that though my acne wasn't fully gone my skin did look brighter and less 'dead'.

Answering 73 Vogue Inspired Questions

It is now May and all of the rain of April has finally brought about flowers. This week I decided to change things up and make a post that is based around me.
You've all seen those videos where a person from Vogue goes to a famous person's home and asks them a bunch of questions (73 specifically) while following them with a camera so that the world may know them, better, so I decided that I'm going to do that. Well, without the stranger inside my house.

Recent (vintage) Patterns I've Acquired

Happy (Belated) Easter!
I hope you had a great 3- (maybe 4)day holiday and that you were able to spend lot's of time with friends and family while enjoying a lot of food. The last couple of weeks I've been MIA because of finals but I had this post planned for the last couple of weeks but I had not gone around to take the pictures or actually write it down. So here it is.

I love sewing. I may not do it as often I should, especially when finals are around, but nevertheless, I love it so. Another thing I love is thrift stores. Besides going to the library, I like going to thrift stores to relax. Last month, I happened to go to two different thrifts stores and I was surprised to find fabric and patterns, which I immediately bought!

Life and P+S | Update

It's hard to think that it is already April! This coming week I'll be finishing my the semester and therefore concluding my first year of university!!
Since April is nowhere, I thought it would be a good idea to write what has recently happened both in my blog and life.

Barbie Expo | Montreal

As a child, I was obsessed with Barbies. I had sets, outfits and all types of Barbies. Zoologist, teacher,  model and so much more. I loved how Barbie could be anything she wanted and so she inspired me. As I grew up I put my dolls away but I would always reminisce about the styles she wore and how I wished I could have a fancy Barbie.
I remember going online and seeing some collector's Barbies that cost hundreds of dollars and that were so, so beautiful and wishing to see them face to face. And I finally did!

Ruby Rose | Statement Made Jewelry

Hi everyone!
Today I'll be doing a small review on a cute necklace and the company that gifted it to me, but before I begin I want to say that it's almost spring! I am so ready for it. 
This winter was so snowy and icy and honestly, it is time for it to all go away for six months. Spring also means that my first year of university is coming to an end! This semester has gone by so fast and I can't believe that soon I'll be writing my final essays and exams *ugh* So. Much. Stress. 

One of the things that has taken my mind away from school and the onslaught of upcoming work has been this beautiful necklace that I received.  It is so easy to wear and I love how it has my birthstone, making it much more special.

*Though I received this piece for complimentary purposes it does not affect in any way my honest review. I do use affiliates links that come at no extra cost to you but helps me upkeep this blog.

Statement Made Jewellery

I had the opportunity to collaborate with Statement Made Jewelry after I contacted them through Twitter when they posted that they were looking for bloggers. Statement Made Jewellery is an online company based on the U.K that makes the cutest, most delicate, personalized jewellery. They are focused on personalized jewellery that will express who the wearer is.

Paperless Post | Review

Spring break is now over and I'm already halfway through the semester! I cannot believe how fast this semester had already gone and that I'm now choosing my courses for next year. Life is going fast and I have three birthdays coming up in the family, which means getting everything ready for the multiple parties.
Which leads me to the purpose of this post → 
Have you ever tried sending an e-card or invitation only to realize how simple and impersonal they look? Or how hard it is to actually email them? 
Well, look no further because Paperless Post is here to help!

The Free Resources I Use for Blogging

Buenos Dias!
For the last couple of months, I've been focusing more on what my blog looks like and my writing than when I began. My focus has been more on quality vs quantity, so I've been trying new techniques and resources that have been helping my blog grow and become something better than I expected.

Since then I had been thinking of writing a post of all of the resources I use on my blog and social media that are free and that make my life so much easier. And so I did.

70s Maxi Dress | Pattern Review

One thing I love is trying out the styles of different areas as each has different things that describe them perfectly so I chose the 1970s.
The 70s seem like an era of smooth, clean lines and flowy garments and fabric patterns that are out of this world. I especially love the long, flowing, fitting designs of the dresses, that look like they should be worn at a beach or in a desert. The pattern that I chose did not disappoint in all of these accounts. 
It was an easy sew, it flowed and the fabric was paisley pattern, practically 1970s ready!

Let it Glow Vox Box | Influentster Review

About a month and a half ago I was accepted into the Let it Glow Vox Box campaign, my first Influenster box ever. This vox box was centred on taking care of yourself and letting yourself *glow* in these dark, cold days.
I tried out all of the given products and afterwards decided to write a review here on what I thought about the products and their results and if I would buy them.

Sewing Resolutions for 2019 | hopes + plans

Now that we're less than two weeks into the New Year and I've been thinking about what I will sew this year. Will I make pants or skirts? Russian patterns or English ones? So many options but so little time since I'm at school and have other pressing things.
I decided to write this post as a way for me to remember what I'll be doing throughout the year and to plan ahead. I do not have any firm sewing intentions because like always they can evolve over time.

In my last post, I wrote my blogging goals and plans for this year but since I am a sewist too, it made sense to do some sewing related resolutions for this year.

My 2019 Blogging Goals and Plans

Happy New Year! It is now 2019!
How was your Nouvelle Anne fĂȘte? I sincerely hope that it was filled with food, family and fun. Now that a new year has begun (2019!!!), it means it is time to plan the next year ahead to be able to get the most out of it possible. I'm a firm believer of planning ahead instead of just guessing along the way (but unfortunately sometimes I forget that)
