Made for a princess

Sarah Burton, you would have made Lee Alexander McQueen very proud. The new designer who has taken over the house of McQueen has had a year full of success! Her designs for the royal wedding are truley beautiful.

BEAUTYmark Grand Opening

On Wednesday me and my girlfriend Lyndsey went to the grand opening of the new location for BEAUTYmark! We had such a great time flailing around the store looking at everything and creating lists in our minds on what we want to buy. It was my first time shopping there and it will definetly be a domino effect of times to come. The goody bag and wine was a great treat too.

I HIGHLY recommend that everyone go! Not only does he sell the best brands of makeup, but also lotions, body scrubs, hair tools, clothing and accessories.

I had to restrain myself from purchasing everything in the store but am over the moon happy with what i got - Borrowed and Blue Essie nailpolish, Hollywood Made "VOG" tee and an hourglass necklace.







Tons of crap sale!!!

HAVE YOU BEEN TO THE TONS OF CRAP SALE?! I've been many times and I'm never let down! I was surprised to see that he was having his sale so early in the year but it must have been because it was so beautiful outside. He normally puts it on for the warmer Spring and Summer months.

If you have never been, here's the rundown: He collects "crap" from other people who want to throw away peices that they dont know can be worth something. Sells them at his own garage sale, and ta-da! Amazing purchases!

I am thrilled about what I got that day! His wife had sold me a warthog's tusk (turning it into a necklace)that she purchased in the south of Sudan in the early 1980's. ($12) Black flower clip on earrings that I've used as hair clips ($1 a pair) and a great gold chain necklace ($2).



Brunch at Medina



A few weeks ago it was time to celebrate the birthday of one of my great friends, Ami! We had brunch at Medina and for thoes who have never been, they have the best brunch (so far!).

I enjoyed my meal so much that I have to share it with you all in the hopes that you order it aswell!

Vegas baby!

It's that time of the year again....VEGAS TIME!!! Me and a few friends are currently scouting out hotels and flights for our trip this June, and even though I have 2 months to dwell on outfits I can't help but already choose my dresses!

H&M has a great selection of dresses this spring - affordable enough that I won't be mad when they have Dom Perignon spilled on them.

Buy one get too many

What a beautiful (glorious) day it was today! The sun was shining and all I had on my mind was the Charlotte Russe shoe sale in Bellingham. I snagged these two great finds and could have bought much, much more.

If you didn't know, Charlotte Russe has the best shoe sales every so often. They put on a "buy one get one for $10" deal! If you've never tried on their shoes I recommend that you do. They are more than affordable, feel comfortable and last you for years.

DEAL: Buy one get one for $10 - Total spent $57 !!!

Stella & Dott have arrived!

I just love reciving gifts! Especially ones you least expect. (Well.. sort of) As I walked out of the office at work I noticed these lovely numbers waiting to be opened! Thank you to Cheryl at Stella & Dott for dropping them off for me :)

What I Wore 04/06



I recently purchased this great floral H&M scarf the other day. I saw it a week ago and they were completely sold out - went in after work one day and it was the last one! I think we all agree here that it was meant to be, so obviously I had to have it!

Seeing as how yesterday was Vancouver's 125th birthday (yay!!!), it seemed like the perfect night to bring out my scarf! Check out the entire outfit I wore it with below.
