Totally Random Friday – August 29

Wow, did that week ever go by fast! Did it for you too? I recently started a new job and it really hasn’t kicked into high gear as it’s summer but boy, I got a good taste of what fall is going to be like. Lemme tell you, the forecast is BIZZY! lol

Anyways, here are some interesting things I’ve found this week:

1. Luxe Box by Loose Button is finally offering referral credits. If you’ve read my Spring and Summer Luxe Box reviews and you love them and want to sign up, I’d love it if you could use my referral link here. If you want to receive the Fall Luxe Box you have until Sept 7th.

2. The Simpsons makeup collaboration with MAC is up on the website for sale. It arrives in stores next Wednesday and I will be there checking it out. For someone who doesn’t care about the Simpsons at all, I am really looking forward to checking out the new lipglasses. Check out the reviews by Kandee.

3. Fall fashion is slowly rolling out around us. And does it seem even slower than last year? It’s like even the fashion industry felt the polar vortex from last winter and is dragging their heels into fall. Here’s a couple of cute pieces from Kate Spade that I am just loving!

4. These boots from Aldo need to be discussed. The colour says beige on the website but do you see that shine?! I am running down there soon to see if these babies actually rock as much as I think they do. I’ll keep you posted.

So, how was your week? Any plans on saying adios to summer during this September long weekend? Happy Shopping!

Totally Random Friday – June 6th

This week went by really fast and was kinda boring. Not too much to talk about on the fashion/makeup front.

So here’s a round-up of my Instagram photos in case you missed them.

Apparently this week should’ve been called “42 Ways to Wear Your Denim Jacket”

20140606-145020-53420372.jpg

Denim Jacket (bought at a yard sale last summer, no specific brand), DKNY Jeans top and purple graffiti jeggings and Joe Fresh silver ballet flats.

Denim Jacket with Banana Republic Sloan Dress in black and Clarks sandals (from last year). Belt from Zellers and necklace from Aldo.

Denim Jacket with Joe Fresh t-shirt with flower details, Gap Jeans in Peach and necklace from Lia Sophia. I am also wearing Birkenstocks but they got cut off in editing.

Okay, so maybe it’s not 42 ways but I sure wore it a lot this week. I think a nice denim jacket is a great neutral for spring and summer. If you don’t have one, I suggest you get one. And right now it’s easy as they are everywhere. If you aren’t a big fan of the cropped one (like I have above) grab one that hits you at the hip but definitely not any longer.

Some nail art:

Two coats of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Barracuda and then using the painted gradient technique (by the lovely Chalkboard Nails) gradually paint three coats of Serum No 5 Laven-Daringly Bright (which glows in the dark) and top with two coats of Quo by Orly Pink Matte (sorry, I couldn’t find any link for this). Loved this mani and it wore well for two days.

Some very exciting news: Head over to Lipsticks and Lullabies right away because Rebekah is giving away the Urban Decay Electric Palette for reaching 300 Likes on Facebook. Following me on Instagram and Twitter are two of the ways to enter for the contest. Good luck!

Oh ya, and I signed up for Twitter. Follow me @tlcshoppingwpg.

Lastly, what do you think of the larger picture sizes? Too big? Great for seeing details? Leave me a comment and let me know. Happy Shopping!

Spring showers bring spring flowers

Hey party people! I hope it’s thawing and warming up out there for all of you. The weather is getting nicer around here and all that awful white stuff is slowly slipping away down the drains. And you know what that means – Florals! I am a huge fan of this pattern genre and I am looking forward to incorporating them into my outfit each and every day.

Here’s some of my favs.

This dress from Club Monaco has an unexpected cutout in the back making it appear as two pieces. Interesting!

What are your favourite floral pieces? Are you already wearing them or keeping them for warmer temps? Happy Shopping!
