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”


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!

Totally Random Friday – May 9th

Hey peeps! I told you there wouldn’t be a TRF this week because I’m potty-training but things got a little messed up and I found myself with a few extra moments this evening. Nothing too exciting but a small post to make up for the fact that you probably won’t hear from me until next week.

First of all, if you aren’t following me on Instagram, you totally should. I try to post something every day. Outfit inspiration, nail art, recent purchases, all sorts of stuff. Check it out here.

Rebekah from Lipstick and Lullabies is co-hosting a giveaway with Look by Liz Lewis. It’s a Naked palate of your choice and some other totally awesome stuff. Yes, I totally entered and I think you should too!

I just started reading Kalyn Lord at Canadian Beauty Blogger. She is a little snarky but is hardcore when it comes to posting every day and blogs about all sorts of beauty products from drugstore to department store to specialty store and includes skin care. She’s fun to read when you have some time to kill.

I had a great time at the Gap sale this week. Spent $100 (including taxes) and got 10 items. This has inspired a series: Outfits under $100 – I’ll keep you posted. (Just a note, if you click on the link, it will take you to the sale section of the Gap Canada website. However, if you have a local Gap, the savings are better if you head in store.)


Banana Republic is having a promo this weekend. To drum up interest for it’s marimekko collection debuting on May 22nd, they are giving away marimekko nail polish trio this weekend with any $75 purchase. Please note this is instore only. I’m not planning to go in and get it – please let me know if you pick it up.




The Maleficent collection by MAC was released online only today. Look for it in stores on May 15th. If you go on May 15th, you’ll probably see me and my mom there buying the whole collection. It’s probably best to stay out of our way. lol

Don’t forget this weekend is Mother’s Day. Buy your mom something nice, or at least phone her. I have tons more respect for my mom since having my own bundle of joy. And let me know what you get up to. Happy Shopping!
