What do I love about Sunday brunch? Well the question really should be, What don't I love about Sunday brunch? A couple weekends ago, I had the pleasure of having my dear friend Par from ParParV over for brunch at my place. I made us a fresh batch of waffles, chorizo sausage, grilled S&P tomatoes (which I attempted to force down her throat like a mother would to her child, and failed), scrambled eggs, and French pressed coffee. We later had an amazing blueberry pie which Par kindly brought over to my place along with these fresh flowers. It was cheat day, okay?! Enjoy the photos from our chilly brunch out on the patio and a few ootd snaps. xoxo, Luvania

You know when you've been waiting what feels like an eternity to wear something and the occasion just doesn't seem to come? That's exactly how I felt with this light pink coat. I picked this up during Zara's boxing day/week specials - I ended up going towards the end of the sale when everything had already been greatly picked over, but I managed to score this for only $50! I sort of umm'ed and ah'ed about it since I wasn't sure if I'd have too many occasions to wear it in the near future, but the bargain won me over once again.
With the lack of special occasions in the near future and the warmer temperatures in Vancouver, an opportunity to wear this gorgeous coat wasn't coming avail. But since it was my mum's birthday last week I decided to wear it, regardless of our warmer temps!
Do you often get swayed by irresistible bargains too?

Another spring favourite that has been resurrected from my collection - Essie's Bikini So Teeny. An eye-catching, "Is it blue? Is it violet? shade that had everyone rushing to purchase when it first launched. However, the sensible nail polish hoarder that I am, waited until this limited edition shade became apart of Essie's permanent line before purchasing it - mostly because it was sold out everywhere. Although its described as having a silver shimmer to it, its not an over the top shimmer that takes over the entire shade. I personally prefer it this way as I love the shade as it is. When I first picked this colour up, I only paired it with a silver accent, but I decided to try out gold this time and I'm glad that I did!
What polishes are you looking forward to bringing out for the spring?
I don't know a single girl that doesn't have at least one nude lipstick in her collection, if not more (guilty!) Nudes go with every single makeup look and are a total hassle-free look - double win.
Today I want to share my must-have nudes, varying in shade and price range.
maybelline- 20- nude
l'oreal - 800 - fairest nude
MAC - myth
This is hands-down a staple in every girls makeup bag! I mainly use this lipstick with others to create a nude-ish creation.
wet n' wild - 902c bare it all
rimmel - stay matte powder
A translucent powder is a total must in achieving the perfect matte nude lipstick (my signature look). Whether the lipstick is actually matte doesn't matter in this case because it can easily be achieved with one product.
Happy Day Light Savings! Well, maybe not so happy that we're losing an hour of our sleep, but we are fortunate to have more daylight now!
Lately I've been mixing some old favourites with new pieces and today's outfit is a perfect example of that. I've had this blazer for probably 3 years now but its been sitting in the corner of my closet for the last year (maybe more!), I finally decided to dig it out when I was trying to figure out what to pair with this super comfy and flowy dress that I recently picked up. I'm looking forward to getting a lot more wear out of it - I can see it being paired with a jean shirt for a casual chic weekend outfit.
