Let's Get Connected

Monday, 28 July 2014


Recently I've been having a lot of fun with the blog on social media - too much fun.  In fact my husband has to regularly hang his head in shame as I hover over our meal at a restaurant to get the perfect photo, or awkwardly contort my body to get a shot of my shoes with a beautiful flower bed.  It's a problem. 

Join in on the fun and stay connected with me through La Petite Noob's social media accounts!

Follow me on Instagram to see the world through my eyes, as I learn to find and capture beauty all around me

Follow me on Facebook to know when I update and get direct links.

Follow me on Twitter if you want a good laugh - I can barely wrap my head around how to use it.  Such a Noob!

What's your favourite form of social media?  Let me know, and include your handles so we can stay connected and get to know one another - one colourful photo at a time.

OOTD - Blush Slip Dress

Monday, 28 July 2014


It's hot, and I'm in boots.  The weather has been hot and sticky this past weekend in Toronto and as I had mentioned in a previous post, the warm weather calls for a simple slip dress - but this time with a pair of booties.  Call me crazy, or a gluten for punishment, but the last thing that I want to wear in the ultra hot weather is a pair of sandals - I find them so uncomfortable when your feet start to swell in the heat.  Plus, I've just been hating showing my feet in public lately.  Sporadic onset of foot phobia - it's a thing!  Read on for additional photos, outfit details, and to see how I beat the heat this weekend in my own special way.


OOTD - Blush Maxi Skirt and Black Lace Crop Top

Thursday, 24 July 2014


The blush maxi skirt strikes again!  My much loved, and subsequently much worn ( see here, here and here) blush maxi skirt makes yet another appearance - this time, for a cool boho-inspired look.  I'm still trying to warm up to the crop top, and this black lace version pairs perfectly with the high waist of the maxi skirt giving me lots of coverage.  This particular crop top has a very deep neckline, so I thought best to cover the midriff to keep the outfit modest and balanced.  For a gal who is approaching 30 at lightening speed, and who also hasn't seen the gym in the past year - modestly in the midriff is crucial.  Read on for additional photos and all outfit details for this breezy, boho look featuring my blush pink maxi skirt.


OOTD - Stripes and Leather

Tuesday, 22 July 2014


We're well into summer in my part of the world, and this Noob couldn't be happier.  The days are long, and warm but lately it's been a little chilly - especially in the early mornings and evenings.  Today's outfit is an example of how I tend to dress for the chillier weather - well, the evenings anyways (if I were to roll into work in this number, it would raise a few eyebrows.)   A light leather jacket is a great solution to chilly summer dressing, particularly a man-made, vegan leather which tends to be lighter in weight - perfect for summer.  Read on for additional photos and outfit details.


My Everyday Hair - How to Curl Hair with a Straightener in 5 Minutes

Saturday, 19 July 2014


Happy Saturday Noobs!  While I slave away at the office for the day, I thought I may as well share a quick tutorial on how I achieve my everyday curls with a straightener in 5 minutes.  If you've been following me, you would know that I am the queen of all things easy - think simple style, simple clothing and especially simple hair.  My mane is long and full, but the hair itself is very fine making it virtually impossible to hold a curl for more than a couple hours - that is, until I mastered the art of curling with a straightener.  If this Noob can do it, so can you.  Read on to see how I achieve my everyday quick and easy curls, using only a straightener in 5 minutes.
