Sometimes it’s just too hot to wear clothes. Let the hibernation begin. See ya in October! OK. So I have to leave the house at some point but what to wear? Little dresses that don’t touch me. Being that I’m not a fan of summer heat, in case you couldn’t tell, I’m not into spending tons of money on my hot weather wardrobe. This dress is from Forever 21 and though I don’t shop there often, sometimes for an easy summer number it works. The trick to shopping at inexpensive places like that? No brights or pastels. Black and white and some other dark colours will always look more expensive. Pairing your budget friendly outfit with a nice pair of shoes, some cool jewellery and an awesome pair of sunglasses will elevate the look and make you feel like a million bucks. Give it a shot!

goo.ey – Design-led phone cases inspired by art and fashion. goo.ey cases stick to glass and mirror so you can enjoy your device hands free.
I was so excited to receive this case. First of all — it’s sparkly. Second of all — it’s pink. Breast cancer survivor — must have pink. This particular case is from the Phoebe Lettice collection but they have many amazing designer collections to choose from. The coolest thing is that instead of taking a selfie with your arm swinging in the breeze or holding a stick in front of you it sticks to glass so you’re hand’s free! You can then set the timer while you position yourself properly or, if you have an Apple Watch you can control your camera with that and hit the button when you’re ready.
I love that you can take a whole body selfie and get all sorts of different outfit angles. I do have to admit that I was terrified to hang my phone on a mirror or window, but it didn’t fall! It really sticks! Don’t let the name deceive you. You’re not actually walking around with a sticky gooey phone case. It’s perfectly smooth but the material also keeps it from slipping around too much if you rest it on your desk or a table. Love it!
Here are some shots I took playing around with my new goo.ey case. Enjoy!
