WayHome x CAT Footwear Round Up

I was so excited to head to WayHome this past weekend with CAT Footwear! I've never really experienced a music festival before, especially a camping music festival. CAT Footwear hooked me up with a VIP weekend pass and WayCamp, which everyone was calling "Glamping." WayCamp was a private VIP camping section, with tents already set up for you. They also came with air mattresses, sleeping bags and a flashlight all prepared and waiting for you. It was pretty sweet to roll up and have everything set up. It also included VIP showers and bathrooms, which was a HUGE bonus. 

The first day was beyond hot, so I knew I had to pick something super breezy. This paisley dress was the perfect piece to tie in nicely with my Bethany Boot by CAT Footwear. I liked how the blues blended and I quickly found out how crucial boots were at a festival. Pre-warning to any festival goers...always wear boots or booties. They are truly the best shoe to wear because its so dusty and dirty you do not want to be wearing sandals. I saw some seriously dirty feet that weekend and its not pretty.

Day 2 may have actually been hotter than day 1 shockingly, so I was happy to be wearing a light romper and short booties. I received so many compliments while wearing the Cheyenne Boot from CAT Footwear. These were also my personal favourite and super comfortable to rock during the day and night.

Day 3 was the most relaxed day so I opted for my adorable Kay Shoe from CAT Footwear. I paired mine with some denim shorts, but these would look amazing with some jeans as well!

I would also like to thank CAT Footwear again for the most amazing weekend. I had so much fun and loved rocking my CAT shoes!!

Getting Great Hair for my Big Summer Event

I'm heading to Italy in the next couple of weeks and want to make sure I have healthy hair. I want my hair to be maintenance free while I'm away. However, I did just get back from my cottage and it's safe to say the lake and sun has dried out my hair big time. But I was lucky enough to come home to some goodies from Pantene to help get my hair back to a healthy state, so

I started off with using the Pantene Expert Intense Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner. This collection is amazing and is the most intense Pantene formula yet! As I was washing my hair, I could feel instant results – it felt super lightweight and smooth! I decided to take it a step further by applying the 3 Minute Miracle Moisture Renewal Deep Conditioner. This conditioner comes in four different variations. I used Moisture Renewal, which was perfect to help with my super dry and brittle hair. This made my hair feel wonderful! After getting out of the shower, brushing my hair was a breeze. A quick blow-dry and style was all I needed to do. Once my hair was dry, I used a quick spray of Airspray, which gave my hair flexible hold without any stickiness or crunch. I love how I was still able to run my fingers through my hair after! This effortless styling is exactly what I want for my upcoming trip and my hair looks and feels super healthy and hydrated.
Before my fried cottage hair. 

When I'm away in Italy and want to style my hair, I want to make it as simple and easy as I can. I love a great braid hairstyle. I usually just stick to a simple dutch braid along the hairline, but for those nights when I want to make my hair a bit dressier, a full wrap around braid in a bun looks extra special. The best way to achieve a dutch braid is the braid goes under, not over. Once you've finished the braid, spray with Pantene Airspray and start to gently pull hair out to create a bigger braid look. Once braids are finished on both sides, collect all your hair at the back and twist it into a bun. I kept my bun in place with a few bobby pins and hairspray. I’ve recently been loving Pantene Airspray because it is the first ever alcohol-free, aerosol hairspray, so my hair doesn’t feel sticky or crunchy and it smells phenomenal. It kept my bun in place and kept those pesky fly away hairs down!

Big thanks to Pantene for helping me plan my summer hair looks for Italy! I can’t wait to recreate this look all summer long!

Pink and Coral Lips

If you follow me on Instagram @sydhoff3 you will know I love lipsticks. I'm probably wearing a different colour on my lips in every photo. I've gone through my lipstick collection and picked out my favourite pink and coral shades that will be perfect for spring and summer!

I'm always looking for new lipstick colours and brands, so if anyone has any favourites please let me know :)

Victoria's Secret Swimwear is LEAVING :(

Guys!!! The most upsetting news ever!! Victoria's Secret swimwear is going away forever. I know most of you already know this, but I'm spreading the news. I just adore their bikinis because they're affordable, stylish and super trendy. On the plus side of them closing...everything is on SALE!! Serious sales, up to 40-60% off serious sales. I purchased a one piece bikini for Italy and was pretty pumped to get it for 30% off. Little did I know they keep increasing the sale each week. I've put together some bikinis ill be sure to grab before its too late.

                                 Wrap Halter                                                        Strappy High Neck Top

                            Flounce Bandeau                                                           Crochet Monokini

                              The Flirt Bandeau                                            Colourblock High-Neck Top

This is the one I bought in store for 30% off.

Apparently Victoria's Secret will be closing swimwear, and concentrating more on their active wear line. I think thats an amazing idea, although I wish they could do both. I've heard amazing things about the quality and price of their active wear line, so I will picking up a couple of pieces soon.
