Totally Random Friday – May 2

Hi Shoppers! Feels like it’s been a boring week.

lav-endureI bought this polish last Friday and have worn it by itself for three straight days since I love it so much and I only have one tiny chip on my thumb that isn’t bothering me.

Must be a lilac week because I picked up these jeans at The Style Bar. Totally love them except for the fact that they are super low-rise and I am a short person so they definitely won’t work for everyone.

Wardrobe Wednesday did not work out this week but let’s cross our fingers for next week.

Patiently waiting for my Plie Wand and May Maven box from Julep. It just shipped so it will be awhile before it comes. Loving alot of the colours from this month but I managed to restrain myself to just four: Paulette (pink one fourth from the left), Laree (far left), Jules (second from the left) and Kam (gree one). And the Plie Wand Creativity Kit. Julep is a monthly subscription box with new colours and products every month for $20. Want to sign up? Feel free to use my referral link here. Your first box is free using the coupon code FREEBOX.

I purchased even more nail polish through the Topbox Limited Edition Flare Mani-Pedi Kit. For $25 you get a subscription to Flare (which worked out perfectly as mine just expired, value: $15 per year), six Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure polishes ($9-10 each retail), Sally Hansen Cuticle Eraser & Balm (~$7), Sally Hansen Dry & Go Drops (~$8) and a nail file. Great value!  They also have a LouLou one that I’m hemming and hawing on as my LouLou subscription just ran out too. Topbox is another box subscription service that costs $12 per month. I haven’t signed up for this one as the reviews are kind of all over the place. Some love it, some don’t.

 

Even though my daughter is only 20 months (read: just over a year and a half) we are going to start potty training next week. I have the 3 Day Potty Training book and am planning on training next Thursday, Friday and Saturday. So there definitely won’t be any Totally Random Friday next week. I’m choosing to do it early because she shows almost all signs of readiness and I would really like it to be done before summer comes.

What have you bought this week? Any plans for Mother’s Day on May 11th? Happy Shopping!

Totally Random Friday – March 14

This week I have written speeches, letters and emails. Writing a blog post is not exactly what I want to be doing right now. Apologies for the lack of written words. Hopefully I can make it up to you with pictures.

1. Bout this Kate and Mel orange cut-out purse this week and got this Town Shoes reusable bag. Hard to say which is going to get more use. I totally love reusable bags.

Weekly manicure: Quo by Orly in Star Formation layered over OPI Black Cherry Chutney. Top coat Seche Vite and base coat Nail Envy by OPI. I’m not thrilled with the Quo by Orly polish as it chips easily. Layering it over the OPI and under the Seche Vite makes it last a little longer.

Got the April issue of Flare in the mail this week and looking forward to reading what’s new for Spring. I love the “Punchy Pastels” tagline that I’ve been reading everywhere. Also pretty pumped that Emilia Clarke is on the cover. Season 4 of Game of Thrones starts on April 6th. Are you as pumped as my husband and I are?

Last week I was cleaning up my office and quickly snapped a pic of all the shoes (and one pair of boots) that I keep under my desk for all sorts of situations. From left to right, back to front: Clarks ankle boots, Franco Sarto round toe black patent heels, Sam & Libby black faux-patent Mary Janes, Clarks peep toe flats, black sparkly Toms and one of my favourite pairs, Nine West cheetah patterned pointy toed princess heels. How many pairs of black shoes is too many? How many pairs of shoes should you keep at work?

How was your week? Hopefully more interesting than mine. Love to hear about it, leave me a comment. Happy Shopping!
