IT’S A MUST SOMETIMES
This month I shopped for quiet a few things, there were a few I didn’t get to post so I figured I’ll compile them in one post.
I went to the Face Shop with my sister and I really wanted new lipstick. I don’t normally wear one, I had a nude like colour but it was running out so I figured it was time to get a new shade. They had a buy one get the second half off and I couldn’t decide which to get. When I finally chose one, it was the Moisture Lipstick in BR02 ANGEL IN BEIGE. It looked nice when I tested on my skin, but when I got home and applied it on it was more orange then brown. I was disappointed with how it turned out, as the colour is quite vibrant.
I plan to mix it up with other shades and have the colour I actually wanted. It was a lesson learned, really. But I do like how the colour is quite vibrant, most lipstick I had except for the red were all quite subtle so this brand is a change for me💄.

When I went to Distillery District with my boy friend, we ended up seeing an Art Festival that occurred during our visit. We got to look around and check out paintings, clothing, leather bags. Then we saw these leather jewelry by Stone & Hide. They had quite the variety of style and colours to choose from. I ended up choosing the Dancing Swallow. The artist was there with his wife and she was talking to me and helped me choose which one to buy.
These bracelets wrap around your arm, they had different sizes depending on your wrist. I had to get an extra small one since I’m pretty thin, it wrapped 6 times around me and the locks are magnetic. The cool part is that it they’re a clip on. I do struggle to put it on myself sometimes, but it’s pretty simple on how to go about it. I prefer to wrap it tight on me as I tend to lose my jewelry quite often. You get to adjust it and wrap it as tight or as loose as you want. It’s really nice and sturdy, it only ever clipped off one time when I took off my jacket too quickly. It is a bit loose on me when I try to wrap it a little higher than my wrist, it slides back down so I have to wrap it there in order for it to stay put. Other than that, this was a great purchase 😍.
You should check out their online store when you get a chance and support these Canadian artists👨🎨!

Last week, my work had a guest come in called SweetLegs. They sell leggings from children, petite to plus sizes. These are the softest leggings I have ever came in contact with. They had many choices, all in patterns. From animals to plants, to space, and more. I saw this one that had the anchors on them, I thought it was quite cute. I debated for a long while and looked around a bit more before finally deciding to purchase them. I am so glad I did, because they’re super cute and comfortable 🙌.
I only bought one pair, each pair cost $25 dollars. I played it safe and only bought one in case I didn’t like it. The leggings fit just right, it’s a bit long on me but I’m short (5′) and all my pants and leggings are like this so it was normal for me. Not really noticeable. Speaking of noticing things, one cool thing about them is how you can roll them up without noticing a difference 🙆. I rolled mine up, because it was too hot and I could go higher or shorter rather. It just folds underneath and still looks seamless.
As you can see from the photos, I can roll them up quite high with ease. Most leggings I have can barely go up my calf when I want to roll them up, but these ones can be long or a capris-look. The material, quality and flexibility of their leggings are worth the cost in my opinion 👖.
You can check out their store online for more information and styles. They do have shipping when purchasing online, I got lucky and paid a flat fee because they came to our work for a visit. They have a Loyalty Card when you purchase and they also give you instructions on how to best care for your leggings when you wash them.
