A Few of My Favourite Things

I had a pretty rough day at work today (gotta love customer service) so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to show you some of my favourite things! Also, by doing this I remind myself of some little things that make me smile :)

Stella & Dot Bracelet

I won this Stella & Dot Renegade Cluster Bracelet in a competition on the wonderful blog Winnipeg style and am so so happy with it. I wear it pretty much every day and it goes with absolutely everything! 

After Flats Shoes

These fold-up shoes from After Flats are the best invention ever. I know they are meant for when you're out partying and your feet are killing you, but I love to use them for at the end of my day of work -- when my feet hurt and I have to do all of the running around to get things put away for the night.

True Worth Design Crystal Pendant Necklace

This necklace was a gift form my wonderful and talented friend Tarryl from True Worth Design. She knows me too well and this is exactly my style. I love the length and the imperfect shape of the crystal. Plus, it goes with absolutely everything!

H&M Burgundy Fedora

I love the way this fedora spices up any old look. It adds an entirely new vibe to items that I've had on heavy rotation for far too long. It's also the perfect accessory for protecting hair from the ample Vancouver rain!

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer

This is by far the best primer I have ever tried. I used to really love Smashbox's original primer, but I feel like this one helps the makeup stay put much better and reduces shine so well. The best part is that I don't need to be constantly reapplying powder all day!

Smashbox Limitless 15 Hour Wear Cream Shadow

This eyeshadow base is pure magic. It truly does last 15 hours and doesn't crease one bit. I put this on as a base, then add my eyeshadow right over top. I am prone to oily eyelids (meaning that my eyeshadow always creases) but now it stays perfect all day. Love this so much I think I need all of the colours!

Deep Red Lipstick

I have always loved red lipstick but never thought that I would pull it off because my lips are quite thin. I have now decided that this is totally crazy and I should no longer deprive myself of the very best accessory a girl can wear! Lipstick always adds a little something extra to your outfit and I love the way that it brightens up the face. Just make sure that's it's applied well so that you don't look like a crazy person :)

I hope you enjoyed my favourite things and that you have an amazing weekend. Ollie and I are going to Seattle for my birthday! Can't wait. xoxox
