Get Style Inspiration from #MontrealGotStyle

montreal

Montreal Got Style is an Instagram page and a Facebook page that honors men’s fashion in Montreal. However, they do showcase ladies fashion too. But besides being a Montreal Style page, what exactly sets them apart from the countless other fashion pages? The cultural diversity that the featured fashions present us with.

Montreal can easily be called Canada’s fashion capital. The folks there are stylish and aren’t afraid to experiment with the latest trends. It’s a great place to discover up and coming designers and gain inspiration from fashion lovers. By following the page you can become privy to what’s hot on the Montreal fashion scene.  But Montreal is also a cultural hub, where people from all over the world pay tribute to their culture via fashion and style.

That’s why I love #Montrealgotstyle. Fashion is not just about clothes; it’s a way to learn about the world, explore different forms of cultural identities, celebrate the fashion contributions of other cultures, and connect with those who share your sense of style. #Montrealgotstyle has cleverly created an Instagram page that does all this.

The page is a collection of different styles and trends. From the Montreal urban fashion scene to the unique fashions found in the African cultures that call Montreal home, your feed will display beautiful pictures of beautifully styled people.

If you enjoy fashion and culture then you’ll love Montrealgotstyle. Follow them on Instagram or Facebook

Bad Attitude T-shirts

bad attitude


Crop top, 49 CAD / White top, 47 CAD / Crop top, 44 CAD / Black top, 13 CAD / Crop top

Ever have those days when you want to send a strong leave-me-alone message to the world? Do it with a tshirt. The tshirts above are fun and functional. They quickly converse how you’re feeling on those moody bad days. Sure everyone might think you have a bad attitude, but you look  good so does it really matter.

Best part is these tshirts are all under $50, so you can get your rude girl style on without going broke. I personally find them humorous and a cheeky take on the graphic tee.

Fashion is still a way to speak out and express yourself. Some days, you just don’t have anything nice to say. On those days, bite your tongue and let your style do the communicating for you.

You can pair these tops with almost anything, which is one of the reason why I like them. You might wear a cute skirt with charming accessories to let the world in on your bitter-sweet side. Or you can keep it simple with some jeans and a beanie to stay casual  while still expressing your mood.

Why TheCosmetist.com is not your average beauty website

thecosmetistbanner

The internet is strewn with beauty blogs and cosmetic websites but most of them are not owned and operated by real pharmacists or cosmeticians. The Cosmetist.com however is one blog where you can get beauty advice from a doctor of pharmacy. I learned about this website not long ago, but I’m already a fan of it for a several reasons.

1. Written by a real cosmetician. The fact that this blog is kept by a doctor makes it stand apart from a majority of the beauty blogs out there. To use myself as example, I love beauty products but I’m not a pharmacist. There’s information that I can’t share with my readers because I’m not privy to it. The Cosmetist on the other hand  offers great advice that only someone who has worked in the industry would know, making it a trusted source for cosmetic and skin care information.

2. Highly Informative. The blog is dedicated to bringing you information about beauty and skin care, and it’s one of the most informative blogs I’ve come across for this industry.  The Cosmetist hails from France, and if there’s one thing most of us can agree on it’s that French beauty care is renowned. French pharmacists know their stuff and can ensure you make the right decisions for your beauty regime. If you can’t go to a French pharmacy, then head over to the website to get some of the best information about cosmetics and anti-aging.

3. Wonderfully written. You may be thinking that a website written by a doctor will be an overly complicated bore to read, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. The Cosmetist brings you information and awareness in an amusing, lighthearted, easy to understand style of writing. Even if you aren’t a die hard makeup fan you can enjoy this website simply for the posts. Each article is humorous, inspiring as well as informative.

4. Answers your questions. One of the favorite aspects of this website is that you can send in your own beauty and cosmetic related questions to be answered. Not many beauty bloggers do this. Most beauty bloggers simply write about their hauls and give product reviews, but don’t go out of their way to solve the beauty related issues of their readers. This is how I feel a real beauty website should be. It should connect with its readers and be willing to answer their questions the way The Cosmetist does.

If you want sound beauty advice, from a real doctor then you need to visit The Cosmetist and sign up for it’s newsletter. You’ll get great advice and inspiration to keep you looking and feeling beautiful.

Summer is often considered a time to dress casually, but with wedding season, graduation and many festivals and events held in summer, it’s also a time to amp up your style and add some unique beautiful jewelry like the ones found at artstylegem, a webshop that offers beautifully designed pieces for your special and glamorous occasions.

I found some exquisite pieces for just $60, which is perfect for my student budget. Don’t let the affordable price fool you though, these are quality pieces. Artstylegem uses authentic Bohemian Garnet for the jewelry, which has 3 hallmarks of authenticity and certification.

The gem is a beautiful firey red that easily catches people’s attention and is said to give it’s wearer strength. It’s highly desirable for jewelry pieces because of it’s color is unmatched by other gems. The process of extracting them is also environmentally safe and sustainable. Bohemian Garnet is linked with Czech culture and is actually forbidden as a raw import, unless set in readywear pieces. Thus possessing one of these Czech made jewelries is something to treasure.

Now I may not be a bride, but I am someone that loves accessorizing my outfits with jewelry, if you are you’re going to love the items on artstylegem.

The webshop offers beautiful statement necklaces perfect for a summer gala, and lovely boho rings and bracelets for everyday wear. The boho trend is very big this season and brides, grads and other stylish femmes are eagerly seeking the right jewelry for their bohemian themed look. Artstylegem offers a large selection of pieces just for your needs.

However, if you’re more into classic sophisticated jewelry, you’ll find plenty of options on the website too. There is something to suit everyone’s style and taste. All the products are made out of pure silver with the choice of 2 coatings on top of the silver: gold or rhodium (part of the platinum family).

Canadian fashionistas can also celebrate the fact that the webshop offers free delivery across Canada.

Whether you have some important summer event to glam up for or you simply love looking perfectly accessorized all year long, I recommend visiting artstylegem for your jewelry needs. Their pieces are top quality, stylish, and affordable.
