A Sip And Some Shine

I was so excited to finally get one of these VitaminSchtick's inspired by Vitamin Water yesterday at the CNE. They were having this deal at one of the drink stands where if you bought 2 Vitamin Waters you got a free VitaminSchtick. I've been eyeing these cool balms on the Fred Flare website but didn't order one 'cause it coasts $19 for shipping. So of course I went home from the CNE with 2 orange Vitamin Waters and 1 Mega C (dragonfruit) VitaminSchtick.

After trying this balm I have to say it's really good. It smells great, really hydrates your lips, and has just a bit of shine. I also love that they added this funny warning on the side of the tube.

Jewelry For Fun

When I was in Nova Scotia I couldn’t help but do some shopping. I went to this store called Amos Pewter which is a store that makes jewelry and such out of pewter (pewter is a metal of some sort).  I picked up the necklace at the actual store where they make the jewelry and boy, does Nova Scotia have nice buildings. 
I mean look at this.

How many houses have you seen that are purple and blue? I actually bought the earrings at an Amos Pewter display at the airport on the day I was leaving.
I really like the necklace because it looks so delicate and pretty. I haven’t put the earring in yet but I bet they’ll look good. I also think that this jewelry is perfect for wearing to the beach but with summer coming to a close soon I’ll be in school. Then wearing it will be a memory of when I was having fun.

Selena Gomez Owns The Night

A few nights ago I went to the Selena Gomez We Own The Night tour. Besides getting caught in traffic, not actually finding a parking spot, and because of that missing both the opening acts, it was a pretty great night. So here are some pics and a video of the show.

(I really loved this dress)

Testing 1-2-3

Recently I've tried out 3 new products from a brand called Cliniderm which is a especially made as a non irritant. 

Their conditioner detangles wonderfully but I felt like it left my hair just a bit greasy. I have actually started using the shampoo as my regular because it helps with dry scalps (which I'm sad to say I have). The moisturizer is also good but didn't seem to have a very long lasting effect. I guess it would help if I started using it for a longer period of time. Overall I think these 3 products are pretty good.

Intriguing Lip Stick

Normally I try to post about a lip gloss a week but I have sorta ran out, so this post is going to be about a lip stick. This lipstick is Elizebeth Arden and is in the colour Intrigue. The lipstick has good colour which lasts for a long time but is a bit drying for the lips. This lipstick also feels very sticky when you apply it but I guess that makes the colour last longer which is something most people look for in lipstick.

Nova Scotia Photo Diary

 This past week I was in Nova Scotia. While I was there I experienced some pretty nice things like beautiful scenery and lots of delicious food. So below are some pictures I took of it all.

 All the houses there looked so nice.

 Peggy's Cove 

A warning sign they had up a Peggy's Cove.

I went to this place called Jo-Ann's Deli Market & Bakery and they had the most amazing food there.


I also went to this sweet shop called C'est Tres Bon and got the cutest macaroons ever.

Lovely Burgundy

I went shopping about a week ago and I noticed that in all the fall collections there was a lot of burgundy. I'm not usually a fan of red colours but as I shopped I found 4 pieces of clothing that were burgundy that I really liked. I didn't purchase any of them (yet) but I decided to share some burgundy pieces that I found images of online that I like. 

Top Left Hand Corner- American Eagle
Bottom Left Hand Corner- Keds
Top Right Hand- Urban Outfitters
Bottom Right Hand- Forever 21

Just to let you know I'm going away for a week so I won't be able to blog.

Home Made Bangles

I got this really neat book called P.S- I Made This by Erica Domesek. The book is full of fashionable DIY projects. I got this book almost a year ago but I never made anything from it but I few days ago I decided I had to make something from it or the book would have been a total waste. I decided to make bangles. In the book the instructions say to get pipe clamps, adjust the size with a screw driver, then wrap ribbon around the pipe clamp, tie it, and voila you have some stylish bangles. Here are some pictures of the making of the bangles.

(Pipe clamps from Canadian Tire)

Lipgloss Crush

 I love these Wetslicks lip glosses by CoverGirl because they have a bit of colour, a nice amount of shine, and some sparkle. They also never dry out your lips which is great. This gloss is called Crush which is a nice pink sparkly colour. I can't find anything else to say about this gloss except that it's great.

Tribal Trend

This summer I have really loved the tribal trend. I don't really enjoy wearing bright and bold pieces of clothing but tribal seems to be the exception.

I got this flowy tank at Forever 21 and hove gotten lots of wear out of it. I think this bracelet, which is from Payless,goes really well with it. It's not opened yet 'cause it's a girt for someone but i thought I'd include it because it's cute and fits the trend.

This shirt looks better on and is from Calvin Klein Jeans. I really like this shirt because of the pretty detailing and because it's different.

The Key Accessory

I love this journal 'cause it just looks so nice. I feel like carrying it around with me as an accessory. I really like all the keys featured in the design and how to tie in with the images of keys they put "imagination is the key" on the side of the journal.

It's from Chapters which I love because not only do they sell books they also sell really cute stuff like notebooks, cards, and other random stuff along that line. The notebook is simple on the inside with lines but in the very back there is a quote by Oliver Wendell Holmes which reads "Love is the master key which opens the gate of happiness".

Jewelry Anyone?

I think accessories are a great way to make any outfit different. Like a fancy necklace making an average tank dressy. This weekend I purchased some really nice pieces of jewelry that I thought I'd share. 

This necklace is from Forever 21 and I absolutely love it because of the Eiffel Tower.

These rings are from Aldo Accessories and my favourite is the orange one because I think it's a great summer colour. They all came together at the price of about $8 and what made it even better was that they were part of a 2 for 1 deal so I also picked up some earrings.

These earrings are so cute and unique because how many earrings open up! My favourite out of the bunch are the key pair. 
What about you?

All Things Sweet

Jam packed days are always fun but you need something to give you a bit of extra energy to last through swimming, shopping, and then midnight manicures (I used Pansy by Essie which is a really nice colour). I find that cupcakes do just the trick especially when they're cute. Which these pie inspired ones definitely are. 

 My cousins and I found this idea in a book called What's New, Cupcake? by Karen Tack and Alan Richardson. One of my cousins showed it to me yesterday and I'm already in love with the book because of all the amazing ideas. Making the cupcakes was fun because we used 3 packs of M&M's and there were lots of leftovers (yum). 

'Cause it's Monday I also thought I'd post about a lip product. 

This lip balm in by Lip Smacker and is in the flavour Cotton Candy which I though suited this post well because so far it's been about sweet treats. This balm moisturizes your lips but also gives them a somewhat shiny finish. Hope you enjoyed.
