Paycheque Plans I

Paycheque Plans I

Left to Right: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8


Every Thursday (because I get paid on Thursdays) I'll be doing a series called Paycheque Plans where I will be showing you what I will hopefully purchase with my paycheque for that week. I will update whether I've made any purchases from this specific list.

As for what's on my list, I really love this Aritzia jacket. It's a perfect representation of the military trend and it will keep me warm and dry throughout the spring months because its lined. The only thing about it is the price, at $135 its pretty expensive but I think its worth it. The other things I can't wait to pick up are the two pairs of pants. The prints on them are so cute and they're both under $20, which is why I love H&M and Forever 21.

As I said in my last post, I'd be sharing songs I'm listening to at the end of each post. Yesterday the video for Iggy Azalea's Work came out, I swear I watched it over 20 times. I love music videos that have a story behind them. My favourite part is when she's riding through the trailer park on her bike. I really like the second verse,

"Hustle and the struggle is the only thing I’m trusting Thorough bread in a mud brick before the budget White chick on that Pac shit My Passion was ironic And my dreams were uncommon Guess I gone crazy, first deal changed me Robbed blind basically raped me Ran through the bullshit like a matador Just made me madder and adamant to go at em And even the score So, I went harder… Studied the Carters till a deal was offered Slept cold on the floor recording At 4 in the morning and now I’m passion the bar Like a lawyer Immigrant, art ignorant Ya ill intent was insurance for my benefit Hate be inconsiderate, but the industry took my innocence Too late, now I’m in this bitch!"

I just love how she's honest about the struggle she's been through.

My Taste in Music...

Just like with my fashion sense, my taste in music is pretty eclectic and changes all the time. One month i'll listen to nothing but r&b and hip hop and the next I'm listening to pop and indie music. So, my favourite songs change all the time because I get tired of what i'm listening to.
At the moment, I'm really into more ungerground artists who only have mixtapes out. Like...
Joey Bada$$ - My favourite songs right now are Killuminati, Daily Routine and Righteous Minds
Kendrick Lamar - Even though he's not necessarily underground anymore I still love him, he is THE favourite. The songs I have on repeat right now are Vanity Slave Pt.2, Sherane aka Master Splinrter's Daughter and his verse in 1 Train
Jhene Aiko - Her voice is amazing and so is her mixtape. I especially love NO L.O.V.E., Wait No More and Expiration Date
I also love more popular artists but these are my favourite at the moment.
In my regular posts I was thinking about incorporating at the end of each post a song from my playlist with my favourite line or verse in the song. So I'll be able to listen to some of the older songs in my playlist and share with you what I like.

Hello...

Hello, welcome to my blog. As I'm sure your wondering my blog is going to be a place where I can come and express myself on my loves for fashion, beauty, music and just really random stuff. I've wanted to start a blog for years now and I've finally gained the confidence to just do it. Hopefully I'll be able to post often, at least twice a week. So yea...

Thanks for stopping by!
