Jet-setting with Sakroots Holiday Travel (and GIVEAWAY!)

12/14/2015
It's official: this Canadian is skipping winter entirely this year! And she's not mad 'bout it.

I'm lucky enough to be jet-setting to Hawaii to celebrate Christmas under the palm trees. SO. EXCITED. YES. And wouldn't you know, Sakroots reached out just in time with this beautiful printed travel bag. Have you met Sakroots yet?? Well let me introduce you!


http://www.sakroots.com/holiday-travel/_/showAll/1/?utm_source=Social%20Media&utm_medium=Blog%20Post&utm_campaign=BohoNouveau


  

Sakroots Holiday Travel is a curated collection of must-haves for the girl on the go. Those who know me know I gravitate towards two extremes: neutrals or serious prints. Better yet, the prints Sakroots uses are created by original artist's prints; for whatever print you choose, your purchase is tied to a charity! How cool is that, you get a super-unique accessory WHILE donating to a worthwhile cause? Such a perfect idea for the holidays.

And guess what?! I have the opportunity to gift you your own Sakroots accessory! I'm running a 24-hour giveaway on my Instagram Page @megcossmann TOMORROW (December 14th) and gifting a 3-piece Cosmetic Set in your print of choice AND an Instax mini to document your adventures! Don't miss out, check out all the deets tomorrow RIGHT HERE.

UO x Santa Monica

11/12/2015
I can't tell you enough how amazing my short time in southern California has been so far. Something about the nightly captivating sunsets, streets lined with palm trees, and being able to go to the ocean anytime I want has had my head in the clouds.

Despite the sunshine, it definitely gets chilly out here at night! My newest collaboration with Urban Outfitters came just in time when I was gifted with this amazing green plaid coat. We ventured out to Santa Monica for the day and caught the last of the sunlight at golden hour from the pier.





 








Definitely looking forwards to the "fall" and "winter" weather out here in California (sorry to rub it in). Outfit deets below!

BHNV x UO Home

10/16/2015
Having recently just moved to Los Angeles from Toronto, I was SO excited when Urban Outfitters approached me about doing a review of Urban Home, their super chic collection of apartment goods. I just love their unconventional style and assortment of ultra cool home decor with a modern, edgy twist.

As you may know, my dream home goal (Spaces I Love post) would be clean and modern with southwestern charm. Living in California now especially has me eye-hearting that style! Low and behold, we were lucky enough to find a beautiful apartment just outside Hollywood that is PERFECT. Recently remodelled with beautiful white walls (sounds weird to lust over white walls, I know) but modern appliances. Now, we just need to fill it!




I love my Plum & Bow Ankara Killim Pillow. Not only is the print amazing, but it is HUGE.






The jewelry storage boxes are always so unique at Urban. I particularly like my new pyramid glass box by Magical Thinking - so different!






Probably my favourite new toy is the Instax Smartphone Printer by Fujifilm. It lets you select any photo from your phone and print it into a mini polaroid!

What's your dream home goal? As much as moving has been a struggle, I'm so excited to start decorating my new apartment. Stay tuned for Cali photos real soon! Shop some of my favourite UO Home picks below xo



Augustana

8/28/2015
I have such a love/hate relationship with August. The dog days of summer are upon us, but it's always in the back of my mind that summer is almost over. Lucky for me, I get to escape the impending fall doom of Canada to southern California for the next year or so (cue evil laugh). Endless summer for this girl!

I don't know what's taken me so long, but after YEARS of eyeing this dress in endless colours, I finally bought it. It's not like I don't have a billion white dresses already, but I felt the white just added to the airy feel of this slip. I LOVE IT.
