Designer Review: Matt & Nat

"As has been the case since our humble beginnings, our line is cruelty-free, using no animal products. Veganism has been proven to be one of the most effective ways to fight global warming."

While shopping for bags we accidentally discovered this designer and as soon as we read the description on their tag and that all their bags are vegan we had to get it right away

Colour Blocking isn't just big in clothes this spring. Colour Blocked shoes are perfect for turning a simple outfit into a more sophisticated look. The Aldo shoes are a more neutral take while the Zaras are vibrant and edgy.

Shades of Venom

We've always loved pink and green together so went for a little colour blocking. Since the outfit was a little visually loud already with the pink belt, bright green coloured top (a lot brighter in sunlight) and printed leggings, toned it down with the shoes and bag!

Basic Metallic Tops

Who doesn't like a little sparkle or shimmer in their wardrobe right! We love how it's just your basic tee but the slight metallic finish can add some edge to an outfit! We'd wear these during any season but the white/silver top could (sort of) fit into the whole white and fresh spring trend.

Review - Sally Girl (Deep Magenta)

Put three coats of it on at night without a top coat and when I woke up in the morning some of it had already chipped off. How disappointing is that ?

Review - Sally Girl (Gunmetal Grey)

This gunmetal grey colour is perfect for those who find black nail polish too dark. This colour could put you right in your 'colour comfort zone'. It's a lot more sultry than your regular silver or black nail polishes.

Review - Sally Girl Nail Polishes

We had already purchased the dark blue polish a little while back and we weren't too disappointed with the formulation. The thing we like most is the size of the polishes and the prices. For people who don't always paint their nails and are just looking to change up their colours often and want cheap nail polishes, this would definitely be the way to go. They dry quickly, some have a matte finish, doesn't bubble and it might require a top coat to keep it from chipping off quickly. The Sally's here in Edmonton is having a buy 2 get one free deal. They retail for

Serbian Teacher Saves 500 Dogs

"Never doubt that just one person can make a difference. If you see an animal in trouble, get involved. Your actions can save lives." - Michelle Sherrow (Author of the article)

Here's a story of how a single compassionate act possibly saved the lives of 500 dogs. So the next time you encounter an animal that's in trouble don't just walk away presuming there's nothing that you can do single handedly because this story will definitely prove otherwise.
