I have decided to reinvent my #25DaysofSparkle from Instagram and incorporate it onto my Youtube channel, as a Christmas Countdown Vlogmas style series! Days 1-4 are officially up on my YouTube channel! 🎄✨ I’ll be sharing a look at my day (not just the highlights), as well as my Christmas adventures and activities.
This is my first time vlogging, 🤣 so we shall see how it goes. A special thank you to @pandorahuntingwithscubadude for inspiring me to do Vlogmas!!! 🎄✨
Here are the videos, so far:
In today’s blog post, I am sharing a review of Namjosh! Namjosh is a hair and accessories line from India. Namjosh creates gorgeous headpieces including headbands, barrettes, scrunchies and hair ties. Each piece is handmade by skilled artisans.
I love the quality of each piece and it’s so special wearing a piece that you know was lovingly made. I also love the Namjosh pieces are sustainably made and Fair Trade!
I was so excited to unbox my Namjosh package. It came beautifully packaged in an eco-friendly box and a lovely fabric bag. Each headband was carefully packaged with a cardboard insert and tissue, to prevent it from bending and to maintain the shape. I received three headbands, as well as a Pony Scarf Hair Tie.
If you would like to see a short video review (to see an unboxing and the headpieces in motion), you can find it HERE:
Here are the three headbands I received:
Wheel of Fame | Beaded Cotton Headband | Everyday, Casual Piece
Wheel of Fame is a 100% cotton denim blue headband with hand applied beaded accents done in a spiral pattern. When I originally purchased this item, I felt it would pair great with white and blue, but I have since styled it with lavender, pink and red colours and it compliments them beautifully. It is a wonderful versatile piece. Out of the three headbands, this is my most worn piece, so far! It’s a great “everyday, easy styling” casual piece.
Beige Peony | Polyester Headband with floral beadwork | Casual or Party Piece
Beige Peony is a gorgeous piece made of 100% polyester material. As soon as I saw a photo of it, I had to have one! It has the most beautiful autumn themed design. The tulle colour of beige paired with the floral and leaf embroidery beadwork are stunning. They remind me of an enchanting autumn day. This headband is great for a casual outfit pairing, but easy to dress up for an evening out or party!
Crystal Queen | Polyester Headband, Golden Beadwork | Party or Evening Out Piece
Crystal Queen is a perfect party or evening out piece! It is great for holiday season, but also lovely to wear for a wedding, special occasion, Valentine’s Day and more! It is a beautiful pop of colour and you can pair it with black, white, yellow, gold, pink or even a dark blue! I love how it draws attention to your face and really adds colour and vibrance! It is available in a variety of colours. My favourites were the pink (shown) and the red (on my Wishlist) and features gold crystal embellishment. It is made of 100% polyester chiffon and has a beautiful golden lining.
And here is the beautiful hair tie I received:
Pony Scarf Hair Tie | Casual, Every day Piece
I am a huge fan of hair ties! Back in 2020 and early 2021, I wore them almost every day! I had longer, fine hair back then and I felt having a hair tie added extra volume and fun, especially when I wore my hair in a ponytail! I still love wearing hair ties, but since my hair is shorter now, I find I haven’t worn my hair into a ponytail, as often. I am excited to try this hair tie out!

Delicious afternoon tea…before I head out to afternoon tea at the Fairmont Empress!
A look at the dress and accessories:
Last week, I posted a new Marshalls Haul video! I went shopping in August for some summer night outfits for a fun girl’s trip. I’ve been travelling and I didn’t have a lot of dressy pieces with me. I decided to go to Marshall to see what they had for end of summer clearance items…I always am looking for a deal! In the video, I share what I picked up! You will see a few summer dresses, 2 handbags and 3 pairs of shoes! I wanted to be able to mix and match the accessories! Some of the pieces/outfits are transitional too, great as we head into autumn weather.
You can watch the video HERE or down below:
Have you gone to Marshalls lately? I have been loving seeing what they have for autumn decor too! Speaking of which, in addition to my @fashionstoryteller Instagram account, I recently created a home account too! It is called, @amagicalhome. Make sure to check it out!
So excited to be sharing a full review and clothing try on haul of Stellar 25 ✨ I have fallen in love with this size inclusive fashion brand (they carry sizes XS- 4XL, all prices the same, no matter your size). Their clothing and accessories are made of the softest (and coziest) bamboo material. Whether you are looking for loungewear or a cute outfit for dinner, these versatile pieces are easy to dress up or down, while not sacrificing on comfort!
Dress pictured is the Stellar 25 Signature Wrap Dress in Dusty Rose. I am wearing the XS. This dress is so versatile, you can change up the look and in my video, I share 3 ways I like to wear it! 💕✨
Jewellery is from the Disney x Pandora Pandora Cinderella collection. I love the touches of blue with the pink! 💕✨
