Hey guys! I hope you had a great Christmas and are continuing to enjoy the holiday season. On Monday I braved the boxing day crowds so I wanted to share with you some of the things I picked up, as well as a few of the Christmas gifts I received. Unfortunately, most of the items I gravitated towards weren’t even on sale but I was in a shopping mood and couldn’t pass them up!
I went shopping at the Rideau centre with a few stores in mind to check out. One of which was H&M, where I pick up this blush pink t-shirt for only $5! It’s super soft and light weight so I’m really looking forward to putting some looks together with it for the spring/summer season.
I’ve been in desperate need of a tote bag and Santa, aka my mom came through with this black faux suede and leather one from H&M. Now I can bring my picnic sized lunch with me comfortably and stylishly.
I realized that I was missing out on the whole bell/exaggerated sleeve trend, so I made sure to include it on my shopping list. I knew it was a trend that I really wanted to include in my closet and one that I’ll continue to wear whether or not it remains trendy. I went to Zara and now my closet is definitely not lacking in the bell sleeve department. I’m completely in love with the pieces I picked up and covered all areas with a sweater, a dress, and a pretty blouse. While at Zara, I also picked up this chic off the shoulder top that already has me looking forward to spring! (You can click on the images to shop the pieces)
I’ve wanted to get my hands on some Adidas for months and months now and once again my mom nailed it by surprising me with them for Christmas. I was so excited about them that I’m sure the neighbours must have heard me scream. I even wore them out boxing day shopping ignoring all the freezing rain because I just couldn’t wait! Again on boxing day, I hit up the NYX store where I picked up their matte finish setting spray (I have the world most oily skin…so annoying), their HD concealer and the ‘Control Freak’ eyebrow gel. The ‘beauty blender’ is a gift from my little sis!

The ‘beauty blender’ is a gift from my little sis! She’s always watching me get ready and knew that I have been curious about the beauty blender hype. I totally forgot to shoot my Victoria Secret goodies! But it’s just a simple black bra and underwear set which is part of what was gifted to me by my boyfriend along with the best smelling Body Shop soap ever!
Hope you enjoyed this post and that it can inspire some of your future purchases. Stay tuned to see some looks featuring the pieces I shared in this post. This will probably be my last post of the year, so I also want to wish you guys all the best in the coming year!! xo
