How I Style: Kendall Jenner Inspired Outfits!

Hey everyone! I'm so excited to share my latest style video with you. I did it a little bit different this time around, and instead of focusing around a staple piece, I inspired my outfits through a celeb - this time, it's Kendall Jenner! 

KJ has totally nailed the effortless "model-off duty" look this past year, and I find myself constantly pinning pictures of her to get some quick outfit inspo. Here are some of my fave looks that I recreated in my latest video:

(This Western belt, I'm obsessed!)


(The perfect balance of casual and put-together.)

One thing that I love about Kendall's style is how easy it was to incorporate pieces that I already had from my wardrobe. I didn't have to buy anything new to  try to attain this look! 

A few of the looks that I did! (Don't mind the middle pic pose, I based it off of one of her instas)

Update! (and a few pics of Toronto Christmas Market 2015)

Hi guys! 

I've been super busy at the new office digs (exciting!) and I'm still trying to get into the swing of things in terms of blogging and youtube. I really wanted to do "vlogmas" but instead, I think I'm going to do 12 days of Christmas (which isn't that far away!). That's where I'll vlog for 12 days leading up to xmas eve!

Today, I went to the Toronto Christmas market with my siblings and Dyl. We tried to get a few pics in before it got dark but it was SUPER cold so we didn't end up taking that many. I have two that I edited down below! 

The editing on phone apps is definitely a lot more effective when I'm using higher quality pics. I'm definitely going to try to use my SLR to take more pics when I'm out and about! Getting super inspired lately! 

Love Always,

Hey guys! I'm back at it with another styling video! This one was super fun to do, and it makes me anxiously await the arrival of my own over-the-knee boots (these ones are my sister's)! I tried to style outfits that would be good for a number of occasions, but also reflect my own personal style.


Black Boots, Forever 21

Crop top & Skirt - Aritzia

Tunic top: Hollister
Scarf: Zara
Leggings: Wilfrid FREE

I'm obsessed with this bodysuit that I bought at Dynamite this week! It's the perfect piece to wear while going out (and it's a little bit warmer than some of my skimpier clubbing outfits. I'm excited to pair it with a skirt and some cute shoes for a night look. 

Another item that I'm obsessed with: this sweater from Aritzia! I've been eyeing this turtleneck for a long time, and I actually got it as a gift from my mom! I love it! Actually have been wearing it pretty much everyday since I've gotten it. It pretty much goes with everything. 

For all the looks, check out my video below!

Hey guys!

I have been trying to make my posts more regular, and with that comes my latest video! This video I decided to film a morning routine. It's really different that the videos I usually film but I hope you guys enjoy it! I'm still getting used to my camera and this was a great way to really try to use it to it's full potential. 

My morning routine pretty much stays the same all year round, I've been waking up super early since daylight savings last week, and I've found myself really establishing a proper routine since the school year started. Hope you guys like the new video! Will definitely be back Thursday for more. 

Music: Paul Simon - Wild Rivers (check out their soundcloud!)

Love Always,

How I Style: Mom/Boyfriend Jeans (for Fall)

Hi everyone! 

I'm really trying to keep consistent with my YouTube videos, so I'm thrilled to officially announce that I'll have a new video ever Monday and Thursday! And right on schedule, I'm excited to share with you my new video on how to style "mom" boyfriend jeans! 

I bought these jeans during the summer, and they were such a steal - 10$ at Black Market on Queen st. West! I think it's a big misconception that boyfriend jeans automatically make an outfit casual - because I really don't think that's the case! I did a few different looks that would be great for going out for dinner, girls night or to cruise around on campus. The fall weather right now makes it the perfect time to bring out the coats! I've been obsessed with this classic trench from Club Monaco, it's just such a great piece to look effortlessly stylish. 

Check out my latest video below! 

Love Always, Rachel

WORKOUT, DIET & SELF-CONFIDENCE: My Healthy Lifestyle Change

Hi everyone! I'm back with a new video (finally!!) that I've been just as nervous as I've been excited to put up. My weight and body image has been quite a private matter in my life for the last couple of years - as my body has definitely changed a lot and I had a hard time accepting it. Pretty much, I felt like I was going through puberty at 19 years old (when I finally got boobs and hips, hahaha). It was a hard adjustment when I was always known as skinny and scrawny my whole life, and I was happy with the way my body was. Through all it's changes, I became really self-critical, which made it harder for me to post on my blog. This summer was a real game changer for me. I realized that I wanted to be a healthier person and not continue with my kraft-dinner-college-girl diet. It was time! I really started to become more aware of what I was putting into my body, as well as beginning to exercise and develop a workout routine. It hasn't been easy, but I'm really happy with how it's all worked out so far. I definitely feel a lot more confident and my mental health has also definitely improved since taking more control of my physical health. 

That being said, I'm really excited to take you on this journey with me, and I'm also excited for a bunch of new videos that I have planned for my Youtube channel! Without further ado, here is my first official video with my Canon Rebel T5 - I'm really happy with the quality, and I hope you guys enjoy it (and please watch it in HD if you have the bandwith to do so, it looks reaaal clear!)!

Love Always,
