It's been a couple of months when I first heard of Snackbox, I didn't pay much attention to be honest, but then when I stumble upon it again today I realized how an amazing service it is. It's a simple deal: You either pay monthly or every three or six months and you receive right on your door a box full of snacks, and not just any kind of snacks, but the healthiest type. Gluten free, low sugar, whole grain, organic... just about everyhting I like to hear when it comes to food, specially about snacks. Don't you find it hard sometimes to find the right snack? Either it is that you're hungry or craving for something tasty or sweet in between meals when you end up eating whatever you can find which is often the unhealthiest thing ever. Snackbox solves this problem, it supplies you for a month worth of healthy nutritious snacks and hey! they look delicious too! Which is great news and as far as this whole idea makes me happy there's also a downside to it; they only ship in Canada (I know, sad face). Its funny to me knowing that I lived in Canada for three years and never heard of it, I wasn't in the whole healthy lifestyle kind of thing back then anyways, but it is still ironic you know? While I was there I never appreciated the extensive vegetarian/healthy/organic/outdoorsy kind of lifestyle Vancouver offers, and now that I no longer live there crave for all those amenities the city has for us people interested in all these fun stuff. It is already a challenge living in Mexico City and being a vegetarian let's not say gluten/sugar/fat free and unprocessed food junkie. That being said, Snackbox would make me the happiest person if they would ship here. I hope someday they will, in the mean time, I wanted to share this service with you darlings, in case you are in Canada. 

Isn't this like snack heaven?

Has anybody enjoyed snacks from this wonderful service? Would love to hear about it!!

HUNTER + Rag & Bone

Ok, how amazing is this? Just in case Hunter boots weren't already a must have in every girl's wardrobe but now Rag & Bone collaborates with them to make the most amazing, probably the coolest rain boots ever. I need a pair, seriously.

Rag & Bone has been one of my favourite brands for, of course, their impeccable craftsmanship on constructing clothes and their effortless/cool British vibe in all their collections. I could dress head to to toe with their understated yet edgy take on fashion, it's definitely my style. It's no surprise to me that they create an amazing rain boot collection with Hunter, which by the way, is the king of rain boots. That being said, we must own at least one pair. The colections is out for sale on September 9th, but you can pre-order your pretty boots if you are like me and cannot waith to hold them in your hands, or better said, feet. Just in time for fall.
There are four different colours available, the black one is my favourite though.

The zipper on the outside is a nice touch, adding the classic Hunter boot an edgy look.

Do you like this collaboration? What do you think of these two brands?

Zara TRF Fall Lookbook

There's no news that grunge is now very popular in fashion lately, and judging by the amount of merchandise inspired by it on stores now, we can tell is quite on trend for the next season. To be honest, this style, hasn't been one of my favourites before but it has come to my attention that I wear a lot of this style elements' actually. It has recently being growing in me for the last couple of years unconsciously. 

Today I realized I do evoke grunge in many of my outfits, weird right? I can't believe I didn't notice before, specially when I thought I had nothing to do with that era and felt completely unrelated to grunge music, style, or anything related (excluding Kurt Cobain, which I have to admit I have a little crush on). I think it has something to do about plaid and my long lasting indifference, which we know it's like the most outstanding feature from those times fashion. For some reason plaid has never been of my interest, perhaps it has something to do with the fact that I wore plaid every day for eleven years in a row? (yup, I was a private school girl), I think that's probably it. 

Anyway, I don't own any plaid neither Doc Martens but there is something about grunge that now I think is fascinating. Lately I feel tempted to update my wardrobe with some of the most characteristic elements from the rebellious 90's era.  Plaid, combat boots, and a Nirvana tee are on my to-buy list already. This fall I plan on adding a slightly grunge touch to some of my outfits, it will mix perfectly with some of the chunky oversized knits I already own, I'm in that british/cool/gloomy/effortless kind of mood, ya know? I wanted to share Zara's TRF Fall Collection, it seems to be a nice option this season, don't you think?

Plaid, plaid, and more plaid. Perfect balance so it remains stylish.

I love the floor length top with a shorter loose knit over.
Although floral  aren't much my think, I think the dress on the back looks quite good.

Chunky scarfs... my fave!

Retail Theraphy

Image by Elle G.

What comes into your mind when you hear retail therapy? Probably shopping was your first thought, right? Well, in this case I'm not talking about that kind of therapy, but the total opposite: working in retail. Of course I'm talking about fashion retail (any other kind would be disastrous) and how therapeutic it can be to work in a clothing store. I know it might not be everyone's dream job, but it is for me, fashion means everything to me, as Coco used to say; fashion is everywhere and I agree, I can truly find fashion everywhere I go. I work for a big fast fashion company, in one of their newest acquisitions, and let me tell you that I absolutely love it (so far ;) ). I don't know if it's something about the fast paced rhythm or the long hours spent surrounded by so many clothes and shoes, but I have to say it's been super fun for me. I've learned many things and I'm really impressed on how we make everything work, specially when there are only 6 people working in the store (me included) as we are low on staff for now. I'm really proud of my team, we have a great connection and we work nicely together, I just really hope we can find the rest of the staff we need, cause I'm overloaded with work, and not exactly getting paid for all of it. Anyway I am very happy with the job I have, and for the opportunity of working for such an amazing retail company. 

PS: I know that I said before that one of the reasons why I decided to start this blog was because I had no job for the moment and had lots of spare time. Well... that changed, I'm no longer unemployed, which unfortunately means I have less time to write on the blog, but I'll do my best I promise!

WWW: What Would I Wear

To first day of school.

Even when I'm no longer a student (encountered feelings) I decided to do my very first post of What Would I Wear for that so much expected first day of school. I know how difficult it can get for most girls, no matter if you're in high school or college it is always important for us how we look on that day. They say we are never supposed to judge a book by it cover, and that's true sometimes (specially when it comes to actual books), but first impressions are ALWAYS important. I do believe it is more about how you feel about yourself and how you want to present yourself to others. Confidence is the best accessory, that's not an argument, but what better way to complement it than with a great outfit. So here it is, what I would wear to my first day of school. 

1. Stradivarius $15.95E
2. Current/Elliot $658
3. Alexander Wang $566
4. Givenchy $650
5. Illesteva $260
6. Herschel & Supply Co. $39.99
7. Chanel $27

This outfit is somewhat sporty yet stylish. I love how the boyfriend cut leather pants (this cut is my favourite lately) and oversized sweaters look together,  this is a style that I go for a lot, so comfy and effortless. Those laced leather sneakers are so cool I cant even contain myself, they combine perfectly with those pants, and they would go perfectly with many things in my wardrobe, I want them... like... NOW! I chose accessories that would stand out and add a pop of colour to the look, I usually wear neutral tones, white, black, grey, so I try to have fun when it comes to accessories, whether it's either a chunky  necklace or bright coloured shoes, they always make you stand out. This time an asymmetric necklace makes the perfect team with a bright yellow classic backpack and metallic royal blue nail polish. The sunglasses are just the cherry on top. I love this!
