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!

Fall Shopping Wish List

Fall Shopping Wish List

After a few weeks to colder weather under my belt, I’m starting to realize what’s missing in my wardrobe. These are a few things I’m looking to purchase in the near future:

1- Ankle Boots
There used to be a time when I was always in heels. But then I turned 30 (a few years ago…) and I am all over flat or low-heeled footwear. But I still want to look fashionable, so I think these will be a great addition!

2- Fur-trimmed wool coat
I just took my winter coats out of storage, and my wool coat has seen better days. It’s time to add a new one to the collection.

3- Midi-length skirt
I have some winter appropriate cropped sweaters that I want to wear over the holidays, so I’m looking for the perfect black skirt to match them with. I don’t want anything too form-fitting, but nothing too flared either. This is proving to be my hardest item to find so far. But I’ve got some good leads!

4- Driveway-shoveling boots
I don’t believe this is an actual term for footwear, but I just want a great pair of do-anything, but still keep my feet warm and look cute boots. Something to shovel snow and head to the cottage.

5- Oxfords or Loafers
you can’t go anywhere these days without seeing a girl in this type of shoe. With good reason, they are super stylish, a nod to a different era, and the perfect holiday party shoe.

Friday Favourites!

Friday Favourites!

Happy Friday everyone! I am spending the long weekend in Vermont for our annual family golf tournament (aka my favourite weekend of the summer!). I hope you spend lots of time outside enjoying the hot weather, and a little time inside reading my blog!

This is what I’m loving this week:

1. According to over 2,500 reviews, these are the best leggings on the market right now, and 40% off until August 3rd!

2. I am just loving this tee! Do yourself a favour and check out this amazing local shop!

3. I’m attending an event at Sephora next week, and I plan on checking out (and most likely buying!) this and this.

4. If you’re a a fellow golfer, you should check out this awesome golf dress (bought mine at Golf Town in Ottawa for 25% off!)

5. Great tip for getting rid of shine on your face (it’s something you probably already own!)

Have a great weekend!
