I dont know about where you live, but here, in Vancouver, when its a clear crisp November-December night (with no rain or snow in the forecast) the stars look beautiful. I know that star-gazing is supposed to be a romantic summer thing, but personally I think nothing can make you feel more alive than looking up at that tinted black blue sky, with Cassiopeia, Andromeda, Orion and other constellations while going through the numbing sensation, chills, and freshness of the cold and still November air. This is something people have been doing for centuries, perhaps because it really gives you THE perspective, the bigger picture.
This outfit was inspired by this outward looking-ness of stars and galaxies, a favourite print of Christopher Kane as well! Although gloomy, grey days are ahead, the sparkles from the skirt just liven up any cold dread-ful day!

my heart on a knitted sweater

I was about to call this blog post "where's my heart at sweater" but decided to go for a simpler (less silly) name.  Although hearts can be a bit too much sometimes and there is an overkill of hearts during valentines, I like the touch of a heart shape on things.  For example I absolutely love those dresses with heart shape cutout on the back, or these gloves with cute heart cutouts.  Since it seems like heart is here to stay with : heart as elbow patches to heart as pockets and hearts on sweaters we decided to knit one for our Etsy Shop.   Here I am modeling for you our own heart knitted sweater and It's now available to purchase at the Count To Four Shop.

shine in sequin for the holiday

Holiday Sequin

1. Collective Sequin Collar
2.Gold Embellished Prom Dress
3. Sequin and Shine Skirt
4.Sequin Peplum Top
5.Gold Sequin Stud Earrings
6. Sequin Peplum Maxi Dress
7. Gitanes Flat
8. Embellished Bodycon Dress
9. Striking Gold Dress

When it comes to the holidays, everyone wants to look their best because of endless dinner parties, get-togethers and other gatherings. While there has been the revival of "ugly" holiday sweaters, I think that we deserve better than that, in fact, I think we deserve to shine! These are all my sequin suggestions for various types of get-togethers (from elegant to casual) and if the occasion sucks and is dreadful at least you look amazing and you-Shine! (which makes anyone feel better) But if the occasion is awesome well then this will just make it that much brighter (see what i did there?). So here's to the end of 2012, while we get in to the festive season and exit in to another year, lets send off this year Shining!!

ear warmer headband + green dress



Dress: Zara
Tights: GAP
Boots: ALDO
Ear-Warmer Headband: Count to Four






I think this Zara dress is just perfect for a fall look! I love this dress because of the print on it, the colour of it, the black detailing, as well as the peter-pan collar. The colour of this dress fits so well for the fall season. I paired it with my thick, fleece tights so I won't feel cold in this colder fall weather. I also wore black combat boots from Aldo. This burgundy, or ox-blood, ear-warmer head band is available in white from our Etsy shop went perfectly with this dress and this weather. The colour is also very in right now.

***The Winner of Our Knitted Earwarmer Bow Headband Giveaway is: Evi Mili! ( I will be emailing you soon) Thanks to all our readers that participated! Knitted ear warmers and much more is available at the Count To Four Shop  *** *winner chosen randomly using random.org

top 5 winter coats to choose from

winter coats



1. TopShop 'Crombie' Mix Media Coat
2. TopShop 'Ultimate Crombie' Coat
3. TopShop 'Tex' Boucle Coat
4. Reiss Lois Oversized Jacket at John Lewis
5. Petites Bikers Trench at missselfridge

As I mentioned in my last post " when it rains, it rains things do,"  I am in Dire need of a coat and can't seem to decide which one to get! The trends are tough to pick through in order to get an item that serves the trend but will last you for years and then become a classic piece in your closet. I have clear favour towards a boyfriend coat but the decision is tough do I get a plain one like Reiss one or one that has leather details like the topshop crombie mix media coat or do I opt out of the whole boyfriend coat and go for the bikers trench that would give such  an edgy look to my outfits but while remaining chic with a collar? What about color? I know I live in Vancouver and we are often known as wearing our blacks, blues and greys when the 9 months of rain begin but a little colour would add colour to the gloominess---- HELP!

chunky oxblood hand knitted scarf

 earrings: material girl
ear cuff: h&m
sweater: forever 21
bracelet: aldo
jeans: zara
shoes: kangaroos 





 So its been getting really cold here in Vancouver, and this outfit is perfect to wear when it is cold. this outfit is super warm and cozy. I wore this simple soft pink sweater and black skinny jeans. To complete this outfit  i wore this chunky oxblood or burgundy scarf that was hand knitted by mom. I wrapped the scarf around my neck twice to give it a cowl look.This colour is in style right now and this made the chunky scarf even more perfect to wear. To add some accessories i wore a pearl chain cuff and some cute bow earrings. this was my first time wearing a chain cuff and it felt kind of weird. what do you guys think of it?

This hand knit burgundy scarf is available on the count to four etsy shop

studs + fingerless gloves





Sweater: Zara
Jacket: Old Navy
Boots: Aldo
Jeans: Zara
Gloves: Count to Four



The studs trend has been going strong for quite while now and I love it! That's why this black sweater with faded gold studs on it it perfect for fall because it keeps you warm and you look trendy at the same time! I, of course paired it with my skinny jeans and a brown leather jacket that has a hood. A leather jacket with a hood isn't something that is easily found. Leather jackets usually have collars and are in the biker style, that's why I am so pleased with this jacket because it has a hood. I also have on fingerless gloves, which are perfect because you stay warm and can still utilize your fingers. These were knitted by my mom and are available in our etsy shop.

sonam kapoor inspired makeup tutorial

I love Sonam Kapoor. I love her style and usually her makeup is very nice as well! I saw this picture of Sonam at an event and felt inspired to try this look on Harnoor.



1. First I applied a Revlon cream eyeshadow from my Moonlit Jewels palette. I used the second colour, the purply one, all over the base of the eyelid. Next, I took the first colour, and applied it in the crease and blended it.




2. Here's the tricky part: making the wing. What I did was draw a thin line with black liquid liner from the inner corner all the way to the outside corner of the lid and then flicked up following the curve of Harnoor's eyelid. I made the line the thinnest at the inner corner. At this point, it doesn't matter if your line is all wonky because you will be making it thicker.



3. Next, you just make the line thicker until you have it how you want it.




4. Then I added mascara to the top lashes (you can add fake lashes if you want, but Harnoor already has long curly lashes so I didn't) and swept a little gold eyeshadow underneath the lower lashline like Sonam.






Here's the full look:






Mascara: MAC Pro Long Lash
Lipstick: MAC Sweetie
Cheeks: Marcelle Horizon Bronzing Pressed Powder
Highlighter on tops of Cheekbones: MAC Mineralized Skin Finish A52 soft & gentle
