What I’m reading: Fall’s favourite silhouettes 

As NYFW is wrapped up, and fall showing signs that it is just around the corner, we are all busy wondering what should we invest in for the season. Choosing the silhouettes that will look great on you, fit seamlessly into your current wardrobe and are quality and budget friendly can be difficult. These top 3 silhouettes of the season that can be worn with just about anything, will have your fall fashion shopping over in no time!


The Sized-up sleeves look great in just about every fabric. Keep it casual with an oversized knit paired with jeans, or take it to the office with a fitted trouser or skirt.


The cropped flare trouser is a favourite from the summer, and lucky for us we can keep on wearing it. This time trade in your sandals for a chunky heel boot, and layer your chunky knits and longer layers.


The midi skirt is back by popular demand. With the different styles, we can shop these days, you can find one for each day of the week. Accordion pleats in a leather or metallic fabric can take you from day to night, while a heavier wool is great for the office.

Life Hack: How to take the perfect Foodie Snapshot


Are you a foodie? Or just love to snap pictures of all your dishes and best looking drinks? To make sure you are getting the best pictures for your camera roll that you can, here are a few tips and tricks from the experts.

  1. Natural light works best. When you can use the light from a window or outside, stay away from direct sunlight and harsh indoor lighting and flashes.
  2. Play with your angles. If you find you are always shooting your food from the top, mix things up and go to the side, adding in a nice background of a wall, window or room setting.
  3. Edit lightly. A fan of editing the pictures? That is fine, but make sure you don’t over do it.

People Doing Good: One woman’s business goal; to go out of business

The Simply Co.  founder Lauren Singer started her business with one end goal in mind – to eliminate the need for her product. Sounds crazy right? Who starts a business, with a goal already set to go out of business! As a sustainable and green living advocate, she started her journey as eliminating trash from her lifestyle (Lauren’s past 3 years of trash fit into a mason jar).

With her handmade laundry detergent, Laurent has made a product that is easy to replicate and produce right at home. With this concept in mind, she encourages her customers; both loyal and new, to have a go and try making the product themselves and place in the reusable containers she distributes in.

Lauren also encourages her community to try making other household products at home, using natural and safe products that are not harmful to the environment and produce little to no waste during the creation process.
