What I Wore

Dainty Jewellery & Comfy Clothes 

Casual summer nights & after work comfy clothes! There is nothing I love more than coming home after work and putting on my comfy clothes. You don't have to look like a slump in comfy clothes. Look for joggers! Joggers are basically comfortable sweat pants that you can wear in public! I added a printed boyfriend tee to stay extra comfortable. The print adds more to the outfit, making it look even more put together for casual wear, so easy! 
For my jewellery I have been mixing and match my necklaces, even mixing metals! I don't see the issue with silver and gold together, I personally like the contrast! Dainty jewellery is perfect for stacking. My name plate necklace has been a favourite of mine ever since I got it. It just goes with everything and hangs nicely on the neck. Plus I find it so hard to find anything with my name on it, ever since I was a child. I never got a key chain with my name on it, but now I have necklace that I cant stop wearing!

This website has so many designs, styles and colours to choose! I would suggest checking them out if you cant find them in stores.

Top: Dynamite
Bottoms: Aritzia
Necklace: Gold (gifted)

Dairy Entry 2

Welcome back to another diary entry. Today I want to talk about the steps I am taking to grieve and accepting the past, also another event that happened in my life. In case you don't get overwhelmed or lost, check out my first diary entry before you read this one! xx 

I have finally attended counseling, I am just starting out but I already feel a lot more calm about what has happened. Each day is a new stepping stone and you never know where life will take you. I think Ive learned this the hard way in some situations but I continue to grow. I have also started reading The Happiness Project. This makes me realize that some people no matter what they have gone through want to be happy and are searching to find it. 


I cannot believe it has been two years since my dads passing, time has gone by so fast its scary, but I felt really good on the 2 year anniversary. I wasn't as sad as I thought I would have been which was huge for me.  I miss him every day but missing someone does not bring them back unfortunately . I felt like it was okay, and things were going to be okay. Something I found very difficult to say in the past. 

Losing a loved one is probably the hardest think I have ever had to go through, but during my counseling I learned that I lost more than one person during this time. Something that has a huge impact on my life has been my mom. She is a recovering alcoholic. For about 4 years she was fighting a battle of alcoholism, which really put a strain on our relationship. My family wanted her to get the help she needed so badly but that doesn't happen over night. My dad was very caring and tried to make things seem like they were all okay. When my dad passed away things got much worse. Living with an alcoholic during this time was even more difficult than losing a loved one. I shoved all my emotions to the side because I was tired of getting hurt and tried my best to deal with this situation for my sister and myself. It was unhealthy environment me and my sister lived in, so my sister went to live with a friend for a few months until things settled down. During this time I lost two loved ones. My mom finally realized she had a problem and needed help. She then went to Rehab for months to get better. I guess I became the mom of the house during these struggling times. Although now I know how to live on my own and take care of a huge house by myself, it still felt very lonely. 

 Realizing this now it all makes sense. I have created a wall that is very hard to take down. I find it very hard to get close to knew people as much as I love meeting others. I also find it very hard to trust anyone else. Taking this wall down is something I need to work on every day. 

In many ways I have become a stronger person through these past years and continue to grow every day. My mom has now been sober for over a year and we are all living together once again. This is such great news and I am very blessed to have a family back but the scars are still there and I am learning how to accept them and move one, which time will certainly tell.

It is finally summer here and what better way to celebrate than homemade Popsicles! I am slightly obsessed with making these. They are perfect for BBQ, backyard parties and hanging around the pool. I love how customizable they are too. You can add whatever you want and make them in all kinds of flavours! These will seriously be the hit at your next party!

What I Wore

Colour Block & Jewelled

The weather has been so up and down, I usually end up wearing 3 outfits a day.  But this week we have finally had some sunshine! Today I'm wearing this colour block & jewelweed tee that can be dressed up or down. I paired it with my basic black skort and taupe & gold sandals. I love the taupe and white combo on this shirt. It makes it so easy to dress up or down for the summer. Colour Block is always popular in the summer but if your not a fan of bright colours, find a neutral!
The jewels on the top make for an easy built in statement necklace. 
I also through my hair up because I was not in the mood to style it... we all have those days right?!
Skort: Aritzia
Shoes: Guess (a few years ago)
Sunglasses: Rayban
Bag: Marc Jacobs

Diary Entry 1 - About Me & Grief

As a blogger I feel like I need to devote my full self and be real to all my followers and who I am.  I am aware that most of you do not know much about me other than I am a fashion student and write a silly blog. Well I feel like its time to open up and get real with y'all.  Grab a snack -  
I am currently beginning this post in the comfort of my bathtub, it is one of my favourite ways to wind down and relax at the end of a day. I am a lush bath bomb fanatic and today my water is as blue as the sea. (Thanks big blue)  

I sometimes feel like I could write a book or a movie about my life and all the events that have taken place, but I wont overwhelm you just yet. So lets begin…
My name is Cassandra Rose Edith Cathcart, I am 21 years old from Ottawa, Ontario & going to school in Toronto. I have an obsession with coffee shops, frenchies, & palm trees.

I love fashion, style & being creative. I was never the smart kid in school but I always got by. I moved to Ottawa when I was 15 and am totally in love with this place and all of the people I have met. It has truly been a blessing. For schooling I did one and a half years at Ottawa University before deciding it was not for me and am now a Fashion Management student studying at George Brown College in Toronto.

The biggest thing that has happened - 

In 2013 my best friend and father passed away, he had a heart attack in his sleep and didn't wake up one morning. I still remember that day like it was yesterday, but the best thing I can think of to say is that he looked so peaceful tucked in his bed. Almost two years have gone by and I still feel like I have not grieved. Which is probably the most important thing you can do when you lose a loved one. Saying things get better and it takes time is also true but grieving is the most important. I got caught up in taking care of my mom and younger sister that I but myself to the side. Two years later, they are doing much better but I am behind now. 
A lot of people have told me I am cold and strong headed, not sure if they are related but I guess I can say yes to both of those. I don't like talking about my feelings or bringing others down so I keep a lot of it inside. Also something you should never do. I am currently learning the hard way through all of this and hope that I can help some of you. After two years I am finally going to see grief counseling so I can get some help and work on myself. 

This past year even though I was doing something I love and was with someone I love, I feel into depression. Something very common but I never wanted to face reality and believe I had it since I was always supposed to be the strong one. Reality has hit and It is time to get some help. I am super excited to start grief counseling and to talk about my depression. I believe now is the time because I want to be happy again in my life and for myself. 

I think each week I will be doing a diary entry so you guys can learn a little more about me and to talk about problems we face every day. Including the good, bad, break ups, depression and more. I cannot wait to take my blogging further and become more involved every day. I hope you guys will follow & be a part of my life.
