Blonde Kim for the Win

Babes, it won’t be a surprise to anyone out there that I absolutely adore blondes – especially platinum, brass free, almost white blonde. As all of the internet knows, our dearest Kim decided to debut her hair jump from the darkest of browns to the lightest of blondes during Paris Fashion Week – and I have LOVED every minute of it! There are so many conflicting opinions out there (such as Ye MADE her do it) and memes (Oh God, the memes) – but I’m only interested in the opinion of my babes – Are you LOVING or LEAVING Kim’s blonder than blonde look?

Blonde to Blonder

Babes, for a while now I’ve been wanting to go blonde – I’ve done the ombre, I’ve done the sombre, I’ve done the “natural” looking blonde highlights (aka not natural looking at all) – and recently I decided it’s time to try PLATINUM. I was a little apprehensive, as I’ve been dying my hair for literally years and I know the road to platinum barbie hair is usually a long one and causes more than a little damage to your hair.  Continue reading

Bikini Babe Dreaming

Babes, I don’t know about you but the weather here in Toronto has been downright freezing…we’re talking about an ungodly -20C. This kind of weather does absolutely nothing for me, and when this type of brutal temp hits you can usually find me practicing my best “babe-in-a-blanket” pose, dreaming (as well as wishing and praying) of a tropical location where I can get my tan and drink on. I’m a sucker for bikini’s – any reason to buy one works for me. I am loving more neutral and muted tones/designs for the upcoming (not fast enough) summer season, and am absolutely dying over interesting necklines and strappy details to the MAX. Babes, definitely let me know down in the comments what type of bikini/one piece you’ll be planning on rocking the next time the sun decides to give us some heat! Until then, I’ll be fantasizing about sun, heat, and margarita’s on ice…a babe can dream!Bikini Babe Dreaming
