Sorry I haven’t been posting more often, I’m trying to come up with new ideas for you guys! If you want me to write about anything specific, leave me a note in the comments below!

These are a few things I’ve picked up recently. So many things are on SUPER SALE, which I why I had to share it it you!

1- Joe Fresh Haul
OMG I love the sales at Joe at the end of each season. I’ve picked up so many great pieces at ridiculously low prices. I encourage you to check out your local store (or shop online, but beware, everything on clearance is final sale) and look through the sale racks, you’re sure to find some awesome stuff. I picked up the SOFTEST boyfriend plaid shirt (go one size up), the coziest turtleneck (I also sized up on this one) and the cutest après-ski shirt (should have sized up!). I also got a pair of black booties for $29, ridiculous.

2- Drugstore Haul
I am so happy that brands like L’Oreal and Maybelline are making products that can compete with high-end brands. I picked up a few essentials, including the new BB Cushion Foundation from L’Oreal, which, so far, is a great option when I don’t want or need full coverage. This NYX lip primer has been amazing at preventing my lipstick from bleeding (anyone else have this problem?) and I picked up a darker colour of my favourite concealer which I will use to contour!

 

3-Winners Finds
I have some fun trips planned to warmer destinations, so I was very happy to see that Winners is stocked with great swimwear right now (they also got big shipments of Nike golf clothes, if anyone is interested!). I picked up this great one-piece from BCBG for under $40. Is it just me or are one-pieces making a huge comeback? I’m not complaining!

4- The perfect chambray shirt?
I’ve seen this top on so many people now and I NEED ONE IN MY LIFE. But I really want to find the perfect one, that’s the right length and super soft, and not too wrinkly….Is that too much to ask? These are my top 3 contenders right now, from Old Navy, J.Crew and Nordstrom.

Happy shopping!

I’m sure many of you have Christmas parties, family dinners and other festive events coming soon, so here are some great pieces to complete your holiday look!

I picked up this cropped lace top at Forever 21 (comes in black too), and if you pair it with a high-waisted skirt, you won’t be showing too much skin!

I grabbed this skirt at Nordstrom last week, and it’s the perfect length on my 5ft6 frame, and super versatile (and I’ll be wearing it year-round!

I wanted flats to wear when entertaining at home, and picked up this patent pair for 50% off. I love the gold detail on the toe!

In terms of jewelry, if you’re off to somewhere fancy, this headband would be so amazing. I would wear it on the back of my head, with loose curls.

I also LOVE LOVE LOVE these earrings from Canadian designer Jenny Bird. They can be worn 4 ways and are just the right amount of fancy. You can pick up a pair at viens avec moi in Ottawa.
