My Collaboration with “Team Insane” Clothing!

Good morning my beauts, and welcome to my blogging channel if you are new! Welcome and I am so pleased and blessed to have you stop by! I know what some of you guys are wondering, “where the hell have I been?!“. I just started my new job as a daycare teacher about a week ago, and have been focusing on that, trying to divide my time and spread it out evenly. I want to take the time to thank the companies I have recently been collaborating with for their patience and understanding, you guys are awesome and I apologize for the delay and wait! The past two weeks have been so hectic for me, trying to organize my room since I moved back home with my mom in our old town. I have to say, it’s quite the change from the big city of Hamilton that’s for sure! I absolutely love it here though, it’s so peaceful and quiet, love it. Recently I found a wonderful and rad company on Instagram called “Team Insane” Clothing. Their Instagram Page grabbed my attention right away and I had to reach out to them! They were more than happy to do a collaboration with me, and I was super excited! I could not wait to receive my package in the mail! Right away I loved how simple their clothing was, but it was stylish and fashionable at the same time.  The companies’ mission is to provide the highest quality designs and materials in innovative varieties at the best value.

“Staying Dedicated. Staying Passionate. Staying Insane”

I received three beautiful shirts in the mail which I absolutely adore.  I received two t-shirts, one in the colour grey and one in black as well as a tank top in the colour grey. What I adore about all of these shirts is you can style them with so many different outfits. For this photoshoot, I wanted a more grungy feel for the look, so I simply paired the shirts with a pair of ripped shorts and some converse. I have also worn these shirts to the gym as well, and have gotten so many compliments on them! The first shirt I am going to show you beauts is the “Insane Flowy Side Slit Tank” in the colour grey which retails for $24.99 but is on sale for $13.99 right now which is amazing! Guys… GUYS I can not express how comfortable this tank is, I wear it everywhere and I mean everywhere. It is so breezy, stylish and comfortable all at the same time. What I love about this tank is that if you want to choose another colour or style for the logo simply let the company know in the checkout notes, as there are other colours to choose from.

The next item I have to show you guys and rave about are the two shirts called, “Women’s Relaxed Insane Jersey Short Sleeve”, which retails for $18.99 on sale now for $12.99, again another great deal! I got mine in the colour black and grey. I love neutral colours as they are easier to style and match with other pieces of clothing. Again, another extremely comfortable top to wear, love it. Can I just say I love the font of the logo as well, it looks wicked! Love it.

I want to personally take the time to thank Team Insane Clothing for allowing me to collaborate with such a rad and insane company,  you guys are amazing and wonderful to work with. I absolutely love my shirts and love wearing them, I highly recommend checking out their Instagram page at “@teaminsane415“, and check out their website at http://www.teaminsaneapparel.com.  Their shirts are so comfortable and stylish at the same time! Come spread some love over on their site, and also be sure to follow my other social media sites to stay updated with my latest blog posts as well. I hope you beauts enjoyed this blog post and take care! Much love xo.

My collaboration with “Ten Thousand Tees”


Hey there beauts! I hope you all are having a fabulous week so far! I have been busy doing collaborations over the past few weeks and have been absolutely loving it ! I have been loving this fall weather lately and you know what that means beauts ? Beanies! I love beanies for a fall fashion statement. So pretty much any chance I get I am going to wear a beanie! I recently worked with a company where I could do just that , wear beanies with these unreal tops I received! I reached out to ” Ten Thousand Tees” a while back asking to do a collaboration and look where we are today! I was super thrilled and hyped about this opportunity as their page really caught my eye and I loved the look of the clothing. I love simple tees that make a huge statement and I think that’s what drew me to their page . When talking to the owner of Ten Thousand Tees, James Ruta, he was so chill and down to earth to talk to. James is a super sweet guy and I knew that working with their company was going to be enjoyable and fun for sure!  One of James favourite things to do is seeing people connect.  James states, “forget about our differences for a moment . In the end we’re all human. We all have hopes and dreams, we all have insecurities. We all make decisions that show who we are. One of those decisions is the clothes we wear. The clothes that we wear show who we think we are and who we want to be. They show what we believe in and what we represent. I never wanted Ten Thousand Tees to be just another brand – there are too many of those already. I wanted it to be a way of connecting people . I wanted it to be a way of standing for something. I wanted it to be a way of saying this is who I am and this is what I believe in . So it’s not just a matter of printing something on a t shirt . Every tee tells a story by life itself. That is what Ten Thousand Tees is. It’s LIFE IN THREAD”. 

I absolutely love this . If you beauts know anything about me it’s that I love people who want to make a difference in the world. I am all about reaching out to people  and striving to make the world a better place . I believe this is exactly what James is doing with his clothing company and the message he is sending people , nothing but positive vibes. We need more people in our lives that are so upbeat and positive, life is too full of negative and serious people.

I received my package in the mail the other day from James and Ten Thousand Tees! I was so excited and could not wait for my package to be sent to me! When I opened my package I was greeted with a lovely personalized letter from Ten Thousand Tees! You beauts know me and my letters, I love getting personalized letters, I think they are more thoughtful and so sweet to read.  They make you feel important is how to put it!


I received two t shirts from their company which I am absolutely in love with. I love simple t shirts that you can style with pretty much anything , just use your imagination! I was super happy when I received a black and a white t shirt, both with different messages and designs on them.  The first was the t shirt on their website that caught my eye. I absolutely love the ” stand up ” tee, I think it is super powerful and empowering in general. You can purchase this off their website for $29.99! I adore mine and have paired both shirts I received with a black beanie, sunglasses, ripped faded jeans and converse.




The next shirt that I am In love with is the “Ten Thousand Tees” shirt which is black and retails for $29.99 in store.  I love the design and you can pretty much pair it with anything! The shirts are super comfy as well!




I want to take a minute to thank Ten Thousand Tees for agreeing and allowing me to show off some of their amazing and powerful shirts for you beauts! It was an honour working with their company! I love working and collaborating with such wonderful and down to earth people such as James Ruta! Be sure to come spread and show some love on their page on Instagram at ” tenthousandtees_lifeinthread”!  You guys are awesome! Also be sure to follow my other social media sites located on my home page for more blog posts to come in the near future ! Take care and much love xo.

Forever 21 Summer Haul 2016

Forever 21 Summer Haul 2016

Hello my beauts, I hope you are all doing well and dandy! I have been super busy lately with work and actually trying to decide what to blog about next. I came up with a few good ideas recently as I have gone on several shopping sprees! Normally, I would not really do any fashion hauls or try-on hauls, just because it’s not my forte. I went to the mall not too long ago and decided to go into one of my favourite stores, Forever 21. I honestly love going into this store, and have found quite a few nice things recently. I used to think that Forever 21 was either a hit or a miss, sometimes they have really weird and “out there” clothing. When I recently went there, I found so much nice clothing pieces that I literally could’ve kept on spending and spending if I didn’t cut myself off.  I decided to share the clothing that I purchased with you beauts, just to give you guys an idea what Forever 21 has right now, and what sorts of outfits I have been loving for the summer time.

I absolutely love how big the Forever 21 is in Limeridge mall,  there is just so much to look at and I could spend hours in there just browsing! The first outfit that I decided to try on and purchase was this super cute Casual and Comfy skirt and top. I absolutely love the design on the skirt, and the material is super comfy. I also love the belt that comes attached to the skirt, it helps compliment the outfit. I paired the skirt with a plain and simple stretchy black crop top. This style of top came in a bunch of different colours, but I thought that you could pair black with anything, what is one more black top, am I right?!

The next outfit that I am going to share with you guys is super cute! I absolutely love the look of dress shorts, and really did not own a pair of my own! I saw that a lot of people all over Pinterest were wearing shorts of this style and was so happy when I came across a pair at Forever 21. I personally do not know if they are meant to be high waisted but I decided to pull them up anyways! You can pair this with basically any crop top. I decided to use this super cute knot tie crop top that I had purchased from Forever 21 as well.

I also decided to try this dress shorts with a plain white crop top that I had purchased from Forever 21 too. I love how there are buttons going down the front, so cute!

The next outfit I decided to go for a more girly & flirty look! I decided to go a bit out of my comfort zone and purchase some floral loose shorts. I absolutely love how comfy these are and how nice they are high waisted. There are many different colours that you can choose from when it comes to matching the flowers in these shorts.

I love love love this crochet crop top! I was so happy when I had found it, and decided that I needed to purchase it right away. This looks unreal with the shorts, and adds extra definition to the whole outfit. Like I said, you can wear other colour tops with these high waisted shorts, I decided to go with the beautiful tie knot crop top that I had mentioned earlier.

(I also love the cute pompoms on the end of the shorts that I forgot to mention!)

The next outfit I decided to go for a more casual look with the high waisted retro shorts.Unfortunately I did not purchase these shorts however from Forever 21, but I did go the same shopping day and found these on sale at Garage. I absolutely love the salmon colour on anything, and knew that I had to get these right away. I love the way the navy blue looks on these shorts, and luckily I had bought two navy blue crop tops from Forever 21 that matched perfectly.

How cute is this crop top? It ties on both shoulders into a knot and looks super classy!

I also paired these  high waisted retro shorts with the crochet crop top in navy blue that I had purchased and discussed earlier.

When I was browsing through Forever 21, I had noticed this really cute oversized sweater just chilling on the rack. I am pretty sure it was in the wrong spot as there was only one there, but I had to get it! How cute is the back? You can pair these with some jean shorts and voila you are all set to go! I absolutely love the colour of this sweater as well.

I was also playing around with different outfits that I could put together with some of the crop tops that I had purchased and came across this casual one. If you do not own any of these kinds of pants, I highly highly recommend it. They are super comfy and literally look amazing with crop tops or even just a plain t shirt. I am a daycare teacher and always get compliments when wearing these pants. I purchased mine at Garage for $30.00 each and bought one in black and the other in olive green. I decided to pair the olive green pants with the black stretchy crop top that I had purchased from Forever 21.
