January OOTD 2016

Hey everyone! I've decided that for January I will be posting an outfit of the day (ootd). For this new year I have decided a very weather friendly outfit for January. Here in Montreal it can become pretty cold in the winter months so I'm definitely prepared with my coat and boots. It was one of the warmer days when I took these pictures because usually I'm wearing a big fluffy warm coat during winter!

My coat is a very comfortable army green jacket from Forever21. It keeps me pretty warm and goes with almost any outfit. My black leggings which are a go-to of mine basically all year round are from Nike. I wear leggings all of the time because they are just too comfortable not to!

My boots are Black Hunter Boots with the warm sock insoles inside which creates the logo on the top. These are actually my moms boots which I just discovered, they are perfect to wear during Winter when there is snow outside! They're not the warmest to wear for a long period of time but perfect to wear for a few hours.

Hope you enjoyed my first OOTD post of 2016 and are looking forward to the next eleven to come. Let me know what you thought by leaving me comments! Talk to you in my next post:)

New Year New Things

Hey everyone, for my first post of 2016, which is a little late, I'm going to be talking about this new year and the new things that I'm planning on accomplishing. I love the new year because it is like a fresh start. You can gather yourself, get organized and look forward to things that you would like to do. In 2016, my goal is to enjoy being in the moment and really cherish everything that is going on. To do so, I would like to record every amazing moment on camera and by writing on this blog!

I love taking pictures and capturing moments, the good thing about now a days is that we all have a camera on us at all times. My iPhone 6 has great camera quality and never fails to take a great picture. For the new year I really want to make sure I take advantage of that. I also really enjoy taking pictures with my Polaroid camera. It's a bit less travel friendly but whenever I have the chance to take a great photo I'm going to make sure I do so.

With all the great photos I hopefully take, I'm planning on uploading them on here for you all to see. Whenever I need ideas to write on here, I'm planning on looking through my camera roll and seeing what I gain inspiration from.

The last thing I want to talk about is creating a fashion Instagram Blog! I recently just started an account on Instagram specifically for fashion photos, I'm slowly starting to have pictures of myself taken wearing my favorite outfits and brands, then uploading them. So far it's been a lot of fun and I have gotten some very nice feedback. One of my goals for this year is to upload more on there and grow that account. It would mean a lot if you could go follow my account "laurenglistensxo" on Instagram and let me know what you think!

I hope you all enjoyed this short post and please let me know what you think. If you have any suggestion on what I should post on here and on my Instagram account please leave me some comments:) Talk to you in my next post!

Inspiration & Mont-Tremblant Fun!

One thing that I love doing is writing, that's why I created my own blog. This is somewhere where I can express my feelings and thoughts and maybe share a few tips to some of you. The past few months I haven't had any inspiration to come on here and do those things. I've tried to come up with things to write about but anything I thought of wasn't that interesting to me and I couldn't really bother to create a post or take any pictures.

A few days ago, I was given my grandfathers Cannon DSLR camera which he used all of the time. He recently past away and I was asked if I would like to keep his camera. Without a second thought I said yes! I've wanted a nice camera for awhile now but this one is special because it was his. Yesterday I went to Mont-Tremblant in Quebec with my mom, my best friend Francesca and her mom. I thought this trip would be a great opportunity to try out my new camera! It was a lot of fun and extremely beautiful due to the Fall colours. 

I was looking through all of the pictures that I had manged to take and I suddenly had inspiration to post them on my blog. It's funny what things inspire you and mine just happened to be this trip with my very special camera, so here you go!


Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed!
