  • Summer is here and that means things are heating up.  But with the heat also means we are all layering ourselves in plenty of suntan oils, lotions, perfumes and hopefully getting lots of time in the water. So this typically means we have to set aside our precious jewelry pieces as certain materials can’t withstand all these different elements.  They will either discolour or tarnish.  So when I heard about Hey Harper Shop that sells stainless steel jewelry, I was very intrigued…

Stunned, we stood in the Auckland Airport wearing N95 masks, surrounded by all of our luggage.  “We’re trying to check in…we have a flight booked to Canada!” we argued, confused and in disbelief.  “How could our flights that were just purchased yesterday no longer be valid?”…

  • It’s no secret that our heritage affects our day to day way of life…the way we think, act or especially the food we eat. But what I’ve recently been focusing on is how much our roots can affect our style.  Of course every country or city has their own trends but how does our heritage from another country still affect the way we dress?…

    Finding The Perfect One Piece

    by simplytira

    Oh the one piece…just another style that’s made a comeback. 
    I really love that we have slowly started to return to the styles and silhouettes that I believe are much more flattering for women than those I grew up with…so glad low rise is a thing of the past!  And so is the attitude that you don’t necessarily have to be in a string bikini to be sexy…

    All Things Beige

    by simplytira

    As far as trends go, I usually try them in their most classic form possible. The odd statement piece is typically as far as I’ve gone when it comes to embellished, exaggerated or “eye-catching” glam.  I’ve expressed many times my love for a neutral-toned pallet.  I look toward designers or fashion icons whose classic wardrobe choices have made a mark on fashion that will not fade. But there is one trend that has been catching my eye as it continually fills my social media feed…

  • Coming from a figure skating background, I have continued to find that joining a sport/class has to be one of the best ways to stay in shape.  However, with my current schedule causing me to be away too much, I have not been able to make that commitment. So lately, I have had to find a simple but effective workout that I can do just about anywhere.  And so can you!…

    Summer Flare | A Style Flashback

    by simplytira

    Okay, so it’s official…retro is in! But It’s not just high-waisted mom jeans, and crop tops.  We’re talking slip dresses, overalls, chunky heels, bold colours, loud prints and so much more. But I can say a new favourite of mine is the flared denim. Throwing on these Denim Forum flare jeans was actually really fun.  They give off that young, sexy, flirty vibe that’s seriously 70’s.   But there are a few things to remember when giving the flare a go…
