Black Fridays are for Canadians too!

So I went to Sherway this morning since I had to pick up some items for a bday that's coming up soon and was pleasantly surprised with all the great deals the stores had!

The Body Shop has 3 items for $30 for EVERYTHING (excluding gift baskets/kits). Details here. I haven't really tried their skincare line so I decided to go for it! I bought a face powder brush and also a retractable brush as well - both are very soft. I know they were mentioned in Oprah's O magazine as well. I'm contemplating if I should do another Body Shop haul via online lol..Does anyone have any product recommendations on their skincare line?

Urban Behaviour had 40% off everything- bought some earrings. They had a nice military style coat, but I have way too many coats!

Jacob had 40% off everything - this also included their jacob intimates store - bought some nice stuff there!

There were tons of other stores that also had deals (20-40%) going on as well. BR was 25%, Mexx I believe was 40%, costa blanca was 40%...worth while checking out!

Both Sears and The Bay had tons of sales going on too! I'm glad I went today because my bf usually never goes out for boxing day shopping :( I did a big haul at Charlotte Russe online as well -- must save money, what am I doing!

Anyway, I lucked out and got the Naked palette! woop woop! I actually picked it up last Friday at Sephora Square One location. I went there around 11 am and picked up the 2nd last palette haha. I remember the rep from Sephora Eaton Centre telling me that they usually receive stock on Fridays ;)

I put up my xmas tree - will post that up soon as well.

Here I leave you with a photo of me at my bf's brother's wedding :) I was pleased with how my hair turned out :) I usually don't like putting it up because I have big elephant Dumbo ears, but it turned out nicely.

Happy Thanksgiving - Black Friday to those living in the States! Happy Weekend y'all :)

My first GIVEAWAY :D


Yes,..I know I only have 29 people following me, but reality is I have way too many items in my closet that aren't being loved. Instead of having it just sit there, I have decided to give these items to you!

There will be two giveaways:
Group 1. For those followers that have recently joined (after Nov 2) - I don't anticipate there being many
Group 2. For those followers that have been there since the beginning

Here is what you're getting (group 1 & group 2 can participate):

There is the closeup of the Etude House Blush colour

This is what consists of the Lorac Palette - I haven't opened it so I can't take a photo of the contents inside (it's shrink wrapped)

Giveaway #2 for group 2 followers:

Rules & How to enter:

- Tell me something you are thankful for. It could be anything! I try to think about this at least once a day while I'm driving. I think it's important to take time to sit and take it all in; to really appreciate what you have in life. There is always someone out there that has it worse than you. I am so thankful for everything that I have in my life..I am thankful for having a computer to connect with people, for having a relatively healthy body, for having enough food in my fridge, for having wonderful family and friends that love me for who I can be anything!
