Sorry for not posting any TRFs for a couple of weeks. Life has been crazy and every week, I think, Holy Crap, how is it Friday again? I promise I am working hard on a more regular updating schedule. I personally hate blogs that update less than once per week – so I best get my butt in gear!
Last Friday we hit the two month mark that so many of you try and ignore – TWO MONTHS UNTIL CHRISTMAS! I would like to say I’m half done Christmas shopping, but I’m really only a quarter done. If you aren’t into starting your gift shopping yet, here’s some things to shop for in November.
1. Paper Canoe is a business my friend Leanne started here in Winnipeg. She a graphic designer who designs a variety of things including: business cards and other promotional material (including my gorgeous postcards and logo); wedding and gala stationary; fabric and textiles; and wrapping paper. Yep, you heard me, wrapping paper. Now you can have one-of-a-kind, matching wrapping paper for all your presents (think of how jealous Martha Stewart will be!). Visit Leanne’s Spoonflower shop to see samples of what you can order or contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org to get her to custom design something for you.
2. Toms is doing Movember shoes. One style for ladies and two styles for men. It says that Toms will give a donation to Movember for every pair sold, altho they are unspecific about the amount. They are pretty cute and feature a little moustache embroidered by the heel. According to the website, this is the fourth year that Toms has done this colaboration with Movember to help raise funds and awareness of cancers that affect men. I’ll let you know if I see any around locally but if you have to have a pair, best bet would be to order from the website. (PS. Toms.ca is currently advertising free shipping through the Christmas season)
3. I’m continuing to wear Sally Hansen nail strips as they are my favourite strips and I thought I would share with you that I was wearing the Fl-roar-al pattern a couple of weeks ago and they lasted for 13 days! I have never had them last that long before. Eight days, tops before that. And they still looked great. Here’s the photos of the strips when I first put them on and then two weeks later. Wow, I am so impressed.
4. So, I’m sure you’ve been noticing the temperatures dropping and feeling the cooler breezes on your legs when you wear skirts and dresses. And I’m sure you keep thinking, damn tights, why can’t they be warmer?! Well my friends, they have come up with this brilliant invention of fleece-lined tights that keep your legs oh-so-warm. I bought some at Gail-Lyn’s in Portage la Prairie but I heard a rumour that Out of the Blue had some. Spot them somewhere else? Let me know in the comments.
