JCI Fashion Show 2019!!

This year I got the amazing opportunity of being invited to JCI's student fashion show. I was so excited to attend and be a part of all of the amazing fashion however I woke up sick the morning of (so sad)! Luckily, the hard-working team at JCI sent me so many lovely videos and pictures showcasing the students work which made me so excited to still get a chance to see it all go down! So much so, that I thought I'd share it with you all! The best part is, all of the proceeds from the fashion show go to the Covenant House of B.C. Here are some of the stunning looks done by some of their students!
















I can't wait to hopefully be invited back next year to see all of this live! Make sure you check out all of their fashion/beauty programs @ https://www.jcinstitute.com !!

The Perfect Summer Jumpsuit!

This jumpsuit is so great for summer! It has a really cute tie in the back which adds a nice detail to an otherwise pretty simple black jumpsuit. I personally am wearing this to a pre wedding lunch in October but it's perfect for many occasions! I really like the simplicity of it because you can wear it a few times for sure. Definitely go check out the RW&CO website. Tagged below along with the jumpsuit.

Skin Update!!

It's been a couple weeks since I've posted but I'm back! This week I'm posting my updated skincare routine. After trying SO many products, the ones I've listed below have truly been the only products that have gotten the texture and blemishes under control. My skin is literally better than ever even with travelling and tons of fitness/work. Ive been using this product line for six months.

Cerave everything. Literally obsessed!

1. My favourite cleanser is for sure the SA cleanser. It easily takes off all of my makeup and makes my skin feel really fresh.

2. My go to moisturizer (they're all good though) is the Ultra Light one. As the name suggests its super light on the skin which I like for an everyday moisturizer because I always put it on before foundation. This one also has 30 SPF which is so important for the health of your skin.

Balancing Work / School / Blogging / Fitness!!

Hey everyone,

Today I'm talking about a subject that I've been struggling with and I'm sure a lot of people can relate too. As a full time student with a part time job, I struggle balancing the necessities of my life with my passions which are blogging and fitness. Blogging fulfills me like nothing else and fitness allows both my physical and mental health to stay in check (and frankly, I couldn't live without it). This all becomes A LOT to handle and manage at the same time. Additionally, I am twenty years old and love hanging out with my family and friends as well as occasionally going out! If I'm being honest, I am so far from mastering the task of balance, but I'm working on it! I've come a long way especially in the last year. I threw up a couple tricks that have helped me, but I'd like to hear your tips too! Leave a comment below.
1. Get a planner!! This helps to keep me on track and eliminates the risk of forgetting an assignment or important mee…

Suki’s Salon / L’Oréal Hair / Bicom PR!!

Last week Bicom PR reached out to me and gave me the awesome opportunity to have my hair refreshed with a fresh colour and hair cut! They used a new product line which is called Botanea (ultimately they use components of henna to create a more natural hair colour)! The two stylists Miguel and Gwen from Suki’s Salon on South Granville treated me great! After the whole experience I am very happy with the result of how my hair looks with both the new colour and the cut as well.

John Casablanca Institute!!

John Casablanca Institute: This week I got the chance to check out JCI which is Canada's top fashion, hair, and makeup school! The building is super cute and the employees who I've gotten the chance to interact with have been very nice. They have six different programs: Fashion Business, Fashion Design, Makeup Artistry, Fashion + Beauty Makeup, Body Spa Esthetics, and Hair Art Design. The amount of programs that JCI has to offer attracts a lot of people making the school a much more broad learning centre than its competitors. 
Location: JCI is located a block down Water street from the waterfront station, in the very trendy district of Gastown. The location is surrounded by Cafes, designers and photographers, this artsy hub is accessible and convenient.

Salon:
JCI also has a salon which allows the students to practice their work on paying customers. The rates are extremely discounted rate.

My two go to's in Vancouver: Places you MUST try!!

1. Dalina Cafe This place has two locations and they're both ADORABLE. Not to mention, they also have great coffee and the lighting is super prime because the walls are all white! I've attended this Cafe twice now and both times I had a great time. The staff are super friendly and they carry so many different food options too. Check them out in Chinatown or on Oak and Broadway (Vancouver).
2. Body Energy Club I've 100% talked about Body Energy Club at least a few times on my blog, it is still my favourite. I go here many times a week because I can not get enough of it. The quality of the smoothies and Acai Bowls is like nowhere else I've tried. If you haven't gone in yet, you HAVE to. My favourites are the Razzbutter Smoothie, the Collagen Juice, and the Superfood Acai Bowl!

Three Things That Help Me Stay Chill During Exams!!

I know a lot of my blog audience is between the ages of 18-24 which means most of you are in university doing exams right now! Exam time can be super stressful and I have a few things that really help me get through the exam grind so I thought I'd share.

1. HathaSpace Diffuser /Essential Oils: Essential oils are SO good for you! I use a HathaSpace diffuser and I keep it on when I sleep even. The oils are super healthy for your body and can reduce stress and anxiety. I've linked the website I got mine from here: hathaspace.com
2. 100 Years Of Love Candles: This kind of goes along with the Diffuser except for a different purpose. I don't know about you guys but since exams are so stressful I definitely stay up through the night most nights studying. I hate the florescent lights so I light a bunch of candles and turn on little lights! My favourite candle company is actually Canadian which I LOVE. The company is called 100 Years of Love and their candles are not only really cute…

Cooking With Fuud.ca!!

This weeks post is something I'm really excited about. I've partnered with Fuud.ca to show you how easy it is to cook a balanced and healthy meal without the hassle of grocery shopping and meal preparing. It is a Vancouver based company that makes it really easy to be healthy without spending two hours cooking each meal.
Fuud.ca prepares meals in boxes pictured above and drops it off right to your door on the day that you select when you select which meals you want for the week. They text you when they're fifteen minutes away to let you know they're coming, however you do not have to be home.
First I made the Ricotta Ravioli which I selected from the vegetarian meal list and it was really easy to make and also tasted great.

The second dish I made is called Spicy Sesame Zoodles with Crispy Tofu. It had a lot of flavour and was quite easy to make. I would completely recommend this company. Not only is it affordable but when the food arrives it is packaged great which ma…

Five Ways To Improve Your Study Habits!!

Hey guys,

This week I'm discussing the five ways I've kept myself more organized this year!

1. Use a planner. This is my main tip for being organized and its something I refer back to everyday to stay on track and make sure I'm not forgetting anything.
2. Keep your work space organized and you will be more willing to spend your time productively.
3. Eat healthy. This is definitely relates to other aspects of your life. 60% of your bodies endorphins (chemicals your body produces that ultimately make you happy) are created based on what you eat. A happier you will be motivated to stay on track.
4. Make a great playlist that motivates you.
5. Turn your phone off for periods of time which disallows distraction.

My Experience With Micro Blading!!

A couple weeks ago I went to Grand Arc and saw the amazing Nancy to get my eyebrows micro bladed! Overall, the whole experience was great and I would recommend Grand Arc (and Nancy) for micro blading again.
When I arrived there, Nancy was waiting to show me around and begin explaining the process. She was thorough, in depth, and ensured I knew what the process entailed in full. We discussed my goals and she gave her suggestions. She then did a symmetry test and numbed me up! Then we got started. Throughout the whole experience, Nancy continuously checked in with me ensuring I was happy with the result and that my pain level remained low. Her explanation of the process truly made me feel very comfortable. We also had some great conversations which I think distracted me from any minimal pain. 

Before and After:


I've tagged the Grand Arc website (And Nancy's instagram) down below so you can book your appointment!!

Self-Care Sunday With Lily and Roo!!

This morning I headed over to Lily and Roo in Kitsilano for a manicure. I had a phenomenal experience and the staff was very friendly. I had the pleasure of meeting the owner Chloe and a couple of the other girls. The great thing about Lily and Roo is that their products are all vegan and non toxic which makes me feel good about supporting their company. The salon is set up really cute and they have so many colours to choose from (as pictured below).

Favourite Places To Sip And Snack In Vancouver!!

This week I'm sharing a couple of my favourite places in Vancouver to sip and snack!! 1. Grounds for Coffee This place seriously has the best cinnamon buns that exist! They have really great icing and are so super soft and fluffy. Grounds for Coffee is located in Kitsilano and has a cute cafe feel to it.
2. Jam JarJam Jar is a Lebanese restaurant that has three locations in Vancouver (South Granville, UBC, and downtown)! My favourite location is the UBC one because you get to select a bunch of different items and have them all in one bowl to go! The cauliflower is incredible.3. Heirloom VegetarianHeirloom Vegetarian is another restaurant located in Kitsilano in Vancouver! The best part about Heirloom is that it is so consistent. Every time that I've gone there I've been impressed by the quality and taste of the food and I haven't had a bad experience there yet. P.S their omelette's are amazing.4. Olive and Ruby CaféOlive and Ruby Café is somewhat new (about two year…

One Year Of Blogging....

Today marks one year of having this blog.... I honestly never thought I'd have a blog let alone one that has over forty posts in a year and receives thousands of monthly views. Making a blog is one of the best decisions I've ever made and I'm so happy that I made the decision to go for it. Although it hasn't always been easy, the opportunities and growth that I've gotten since starting a year ago make it all completely worth it!

I started this blog a year ago because I felt like I needed a creative outlet. Having always been busy with competitive swimming and soccer throughout my whole life and then stopping all together once university came around, I really lacked something to be passionate about. One night I came to the realization and the same night is when I started Sunday Funday!

I really am so appreciative of everyone who checks in every Sunday to see what is new on the blog and for everyone who supports me on my journey. I've so enjoyed everyday of blogg…
