Hello Lovelies, how have all of you been lately? As some of you might know by now from my instagram photos, my Fiance and I have adopted a puppy! Our puppy has been keeping my hands full with training, playtime and the dreaded cleanup of toys and crumbs from kibble. But before I go on and on, let me bring this story all the way back to the beginning. I have a dog back home in Canada who I adopted from the States, and currently lives with my parents- and may I add, is spoiled rotten. I had no intentions of adopting a dog, or thinking of caring for, or training a puppy while staying in the Caribbean. It was not something I thought I would do anytime soon with my Fiance. But one day a few of my friends took me down to SXM Paws to walk the dogs and puppies in the shelter, and I ended up walking a puppy (however this puppy was not the one we would adopt). I’m not sure what happened but I became obsessed with ‘puppies’ I had puppy fever, constantly looking through the photos of all the puppies SXM Paws had up for adoption and foster.
Hey Everyone! Greetings from the Caribbean and the ‘Friendly Island’ if you know where that motto’s from then you definitely will be able to guess the island I’m currently residing on. I have started to settle into life here, and I just want to first talk about avocados, because I finally ate the one I bought at Cost-U-Less with one of my new friends (who took me grocery shopping, and is showing me how this island works). I had no idea that there’s different species of avocados, I just thought all avocados looked the same, tiny-medium in size, with a bumpy surface and roundness to them. Well I definitely learned something new, the avocados I can get in the Caribbean are HUGE, green, with a smooth surface, have a sweet taste, and you can tell they have a far greater water content when you devour them. They are a little watery, but you know what Imma make guacamole outta them sometime and let you know how that works out..with like a pound of sour cream.
Hey Everyone! I never knew purple shampoos existed until I began seeing articles, and vloggers discussing the perils of having blonde hair turn brassy. Well being a brunette made me ignore a lot of those articles, and video blogs up until I had my hair dyed ‘balayage’. My hair became significantly lighter, and blonder (that my family began calling me ‘blondie’..
Hey Everyone, this has got to be one of my best Fashion Finds yet! It’s true that I’ve been doing a lot of shopping, and as you know I’m trying to find items to take with me to the Caribbean. Living in Vancouver BC pretty much means that your wardrobe is full of sweaters, and clothing that will keep you warm, or at least dry on rainy days. To say the least my summer wardrobe has been lacking. I’ve been stocking up on loose, basics tee’s, cute colourful dresses, and leggings,shorts, rompers etc- just Anything that will keep me cool and comfy for when I’m there.
Hey Everyone! What I love about this time of year is that summer clothing starts to go on sale, that’s right the summer hasn’t ended..but you can snag some gorgeous pieces for enticing prices. Today I decided to venture off to Homesense/ Winners. Canadians know the deal with this place, but if you’re unfamiliar with Homesense & Winners..think of it like a Marshalls, or TJ Max (which it’s under the TJ Max group). Anyways I love to go to this store for my face washes, and moisturizers because sometimes if you look extra hard you can walk away with great products, for cheap. I’m stocking up on items for the Caribbean so this is the place to go. Now, I spotted a long, white Maxi dress with some embroidered detail, and guess what it happened to be on sale for $15, from $50. The dress is by the brand Japna, and is handmade in India.
Hey Everyone! Happy Tuesday, this is not a trending Tuesday post, I promise I’ll get back to making more of those shortly. Instead this happened to be another unexpected post, I wasn’t intending to even get a photo of my look, but yet again look at this street art! You know you’d want a photo op with this.
Hey Everyone, I want to make a crazy announcement! Currently I’m shopping, and planning what to take with me to the Caribbean! That’s right,
your favourite blogger Zaychishka is all about that jet-set life! Hahah. Jokes aside I’m not going for a vacation, and I’m not going for work either! I’m going with my Fiance who has been accepted into Medical School, and I will be his support system. I may dabble in freelance writing for online publications, while maintaining the Zaychishka Style blog..so I will be keeping myself busy while exploring the Island. So I hope you will enjoy all of the adventures I will be taking you on, and get ready to see some of that Caribbean life with me.
Hey Lovelies! Visiting Montreal went by too fast, and Im actually missing this city! When we had landed in Pierre Trudeau Airport and began our journey to our hotel I actually found Montreal to be an ugly place. I saw a lot of industrial sights, and massive concrete overpasses that marred the landscape. However, my first impressions changed once we ended up in the area of Sherbrooke street where our Hotel was situated. (I think this is considered the business section of town) and it’s a perfect place to be if you enjoy walking, and exploring the city on foot. This area is nearby to McGill University, and not too far away from Notre Dame Cathedral, as well as places to sit down and eat along the way. Enjoy!
Summer is the season when the sexiest outfits we own come out of our closets. We also love looking for new inspiration, perhaps in magazines, on blogs (hopefully this one :P), and from celebrities. Celebrities are always fun to get inspired from, and it’s even more fun to be able to see what they can come up with outside of award, or gala season. Some are a hot mess without their stylists, and others know what looks hot. Well for today’s Casual Sunday I’m looking for inspiration from the past- from Nicole Richie who used to be all over the TV- gossip magazines etc for her style. Namely her affinity for oversized sunglasses that sent us into a frenzy. I wasn’t too crazy for the whole bib neck crop when they came back into fashion- they felt too retro, too dusty! But when I see the way these tops look when paired with a good pair of distressed denim shorts, or full length..the look is effortless and sexy…and I’m a fan!
To be honest I never knew, or heard of Tinsley Mortimer until a few weeks back when I read an article about her life as a burgeoning socialite, and of how her life took a tragic turn, where she was arrested and well that’s not for this post! This post is all about Tinsley Mortimer’s style, and will be kicking off a series I would love to pursue on the Zaychishka Style blog as a throwback to the socialites of the pasts- mainly about their style. These posts are about the days when the Kardashians weren’t showing off their asses to grapple for our attention, -to a time when Socialites worked on committees, and were noticed for their style.
There was a time when Tinsley Mortimer was considered New York’s sweetheart when her images were everywhere and she was often invited to the elite social parties and galas. A quick google image search depicts her as a socialite who was often photographed for her style, (it even looks like she was addicted to wearing YSL sandals for a time). And often she would be seen sitting front row at fashion shows.
