New Video!

Hello, friends! I am back and in video form!

Recently I attended a cosmetic event hosted by London Drugs where I had the privilege of trying out a lot (and I mean a lot a lot) of products that are available in their cosmetics department. I have picked just a few of my initial favourites to share with you. There will be another video coming soon because I wasn't able to fit all of them into just one.

I missed all of you!



101 ways to wear a romper

Wearing: Joe Fresh Trench, Club Monaco Romper, Aldo Pumps & Barefoot Contessa Necklace

I'm just kidding, I'm not going to show you 101 ways to wear this romper. I really should though, I wear it all the time.

So what's new with all of you? Our kitchen renovations are done and I looooove how they look. We* updated the cabinets to white, put a white tile back splash and painted the walls a really nice grey/green. It's so bright now! (*I am using the word 'we' very loosely. Kevin did all of the work. I just watched)

We booked our camping site for July. We go to one of those camp sites that is so popular that you have to book the site 3 months in advance by competing with everyone else who wants the site. It's like trying to get concert tickets to a concert with only 30 seats and I am not laid back enough for the stress that comes along with maybe getting the camp site when you want it. Luckily we got the site we wanted on the date we wanted to I am counting down the days until we go.

What's new with all of you?


Robson In Bloom GIVEAWAY

Zara Jacket
Club Monaco Romper
Aldo Pumps

I recently mentioned that I have been spending my clothing budget on pieces that I love and would want to wear more frequently.While a polka dot romper isn't exactly a practical purchase, I am so in love with it that I have already worn it a handful of times.
This jacket and these shoes on the other hand are just fun pops of colour that I've been using to brighten up my easy to wear basics. I also wore this yellow jacket with a floral skirt (the one I wore here) and blue blouse to a family dinner recently and so many people told me I looked like spring. Who doesn't love dressing like a season?

Whenever a new season begins I try to come up with a way to stop my excitement from getting the best of me. I love clothes and I love styling so a new season always feels like a fresh start and an opportunity to shop.

I've really had to work on breaking my bad habits. I get bored with my clothing easily, I really really enjoy shopping, and I put far too much value in new things. You would think that bad shopping habits are really trivial, but it has taken a long time for me to change. 

This spring I will be spending my clothing budget on fewer pieces that are higher quality. I've also been trying to buy pieces that I really love instead of buying a bunch of pieces that I like. I would always try to get as many pieces as I could with my budgeted amount but now I'm really trying to just focus on quality, even if I only walk away with a couple new items. None of these concepts are new but now I am trying to finally put them into practice. I'm also rewearing the clothes in my closet a lot more than I have in the past, and I always thought I was someone who rewore a lot before. One of the pieces I bought during our Robson Street shopping trip (which I will be posting this Thursday when I host my GIVEAWAY) has already been worn 5 times. It's really shown me what happens when I actually love the clothes in my closet.

I bought this Club Monaco skirt a few months ago with a gift card and I combined it with a few spring-y pieces I've had in my closet for a few years. I'm really looking forward to wearing different variations of this outfit (or, who am I kidding, this exact outfit) this spring.

Do you have any shopping habits that you're trying to change? Or have you changed any recently?
