hose who live in Vancouver must learn to make nice with the rain. While most of Canada suffers through snow for most of the Autumn, Winter, and early Spring seasons Vancouver has rain – lots and lots of rain. The best thing one can do is find ways to enjoy the rain. Personally, I believe in fun and colourful umbrellas and I always have one in my purse. As a borderline obsessed Disney fan, my two favourites to get me through definitely put a smile on my face when it’s grey out. They may not be the most fashionable option but I love them all the same!
Here is an image of one that I picked up last August to get me through some stormy days.
After a very busy week I was looking forward to having a day off together with my fiance. We love spending rainy days together even if it is just to run errands, grab some coffee, and watch a film. So, in our style, we did just that. I was a little self-indulgent and purchased a few pick-me-ups to tide me over until we get some warmer, sunnier, and dryer weather. Paired with Chai Tea Lattes, cake pops, and Star Wars it made for a lovely day spent together.
In my shopping bag:
Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh
Such a fresh, floral, springtime scent! I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since I first tested it and I am very pleased with this purchase! I have a rather extensive perfume collection but my favourites are: Marc Jacobs Lola, Givenchy Hot Couture, Givenchy Very Irresistible, and Dior Miss Dior Cherie.
Revlon Colourburst Lipgloss in Hot Pink Rose and Strawberry (far right and far left)
I was very pleasantly surprised with these glosses! Lip gloss is such a fickle thing, I find it nearly impossible to find a satisfying balance of pigment, shine without the sticky texture which seems to act as a magnet for stray hairs around the face. So far, I have only tested them for a couple minutes but plan to use them daily. I hope that they wear well throughout the day and as much as I love to reapply my gloss all day long, practicality is key, and that does not always happen.
Revlon Colourburst Lipstick in Candy Pink
I picked up this amazing Barbie Pink shade with a huge smile on my face! I already purchased Carnation and Fuchsia and have really enjoyed wearing them. They are smooth to apply and last a fair while. Carnation has been my colour of choice for day and Fuchsia in the evening; however, Candy Pink may steal Carnations position as my daily colour.
My new waiting-for-Spring-finds will get me through until the Sunshine arrives and Daylight Savings, while I lose an hour’s sleep, mean that the sunlight will stay with us longer in the late afternoon.
I’m off to explore the Ivanka Trump shoe line which has caught my attention as of late, and will surely be making it’s way to my shoe collection!
