Introducing: Blogger Fashion Week!

65i5v6h8sm04o9h6i0kn If you’re like me and have tons of clothes just lying around (either they don’t fit or you simply got bored with them), then I suggest you take my advice and check out this genius online community called Trend Trunk.

Trend Trunk simplifies both the buying and selling process. There’s no meeting up with anyone, so there’s no worrying about potentially being involved in a sketchy or dangerous situation when meeting up with a complete stranger. Nobody needs that kind of stress, especially when shopping should be a fun experience!

I joined, and have already spotted so many amazing items that are brand new or gently used. Definitely adding all of them to my “should buy” list. I will also soon be adding a bunch of my own items (clothes, shoes and accessories), so stay tuned for that! I will announce when my “closet” on Trend Trunk is all set to go.

One thing you should be aware of is that right now, a bunch of other amazing bloggers’ closets are available for you to check out. This is part of “Blogger Fashion Week,” which started on December 9 and ends this Sunday the 15th of December. So hurry up before your chance to purchase some amazing items at a low price ends! Plus, you’ll be doing a good deed because some of the bloggers will be donating 100% of the proceeds to their favourite not-for-profit charity through Trend Trunks’ Closets & Causes program!

Shop your favourite blogger’s closet at www.bloggerfashionweek.com and check out Trend Trunk at www.trendtrunk.com!

If you end up purchasing an item or items, take a pic and share it with us by tweeting @gialilibeth and @trendtrunk!

Updates and Changes Coming Shortly

Hello wonderful readers,

As some of you may have noticed, I haven’t updated many parts of this blog in quite a while. There have been many things going on this past year and I have neglected it. I started by updating the “about” section today, which I have posted below. There is news about changes I will be making to the blog and an updated “bio” of myself. Slowly, but surely, I’ll get this blog back on track!

Hope you all have a fabulous and stylish day!

My name is Gia; I’m a 26 year old living in the suburbs of Toronto. I am most definitely a fashion addict. Aside from collecting fashion magazines like a maniac, my other interests include shopping (of course), travelling, reading and doing anything social media related. I also really enjoy art, music and playing (or attempting to play) golf. When I have time, I like to watch historical documentaries, Downtown Abbey, the Rachel Zoe Project, re-runs of the Hills and the City or the Devil Wears Prada for the 500th time. I no longer go to school, but am trying to figure out my life – find a career, move out and all that fun (er, not really) stuff.

With no specific style to call my own, I just wear what I feel like when I feel like. Rules, including style rules, are made to be broken; as long as you give off a confident vibe, feel awesome and have a great attitude, you can pull almost anything off!

I started this blog three years ago to voice my thoughts and opinions on fashion and style. As time went on, I started to write less and just post photos of my favourite looks from celebrities, the red carpet, film festivals, fashion weeks and those I consider style icons. I am now, as of September 2013, going to go back to my original plan for the blog and actually write. I hope to have new posts written and published very shortly, as soon as I have some time to do so. I will also post new photos in the “my photography” section, including photos from some of my recent trips and adventures. I also plan on having a section about beauty, which will include makeup and beauty product reviews, a section on health and fitness, another on food and recipes and much more.

I am very excited about these changes and hope you are too! So check back within the next few weeks or before November to see the changes and updates!

Happy (belated) new year!

I know I’m almost a week behind, but happy new year to all!

2011 will be an amazing year, I just know it.   I can’t tell you how happy I am that it’s a new year.  Last year I went through plenty of rough moments and now I feel like I can finally start fresh.  There are so many things to look forward to this year and I hope it’s NOT a disappointment.  Actually, I refuse to let it be a disappointment 😉 

Hope your holidays were fantastic and everyone has been having a great first week back to school or work!  I still have a few more days off, then it’s back to the books and assignments for another three months of hell (joy!).
