Summer Shopping

I‘m in love with the summer season! It’s the season of wearing shorts~ and I bought two for this summer that I can’t wait to wear.

The pair in white is from Abercrombie & Fitch. I got them from a day trip to the States, and though they weren’t on sale, I’ve always wanted to buy a pair of white shorts. It was either this one or a white pair from True Religion but, I prefer A&F more to be honest.

The pair in teal is a favourite ~ from Guess. The store in Metrotown didn’t carry my size, so I resorted to buying online. Luckily, I got them for $2 cheaper from Guess’s website! Hey, any savings is still savings

When I went shopping with Selina the other day, we found these adorable Starfish Earrings at Crystal Mall! They’re simply adorable and suit the summer season perfectly, as I plan to spend many days lying in the sun on the beach! Hope the weather gets warmer~

iPhone camera doesn’t do them justice but, they’re a darling gold colour~


Have any of you tried Lush’s Godiva shampoo bar? The jasmine scent is heavenly! It’s a bit expensive at $15CAD  a pop, but the lingering jasmine scent fills up the bathroom. It lathers really well under a running shower. I really like it, but since my hair is dyed, I can’t really use it without conditioning afterward, which diffuses the scent a little.

Either way, I’m really glad I bought it to try! Lush’s products are always exotic. Here is an image:

Another product I’ve been wanting to write about is “REN” skincare products! Awesome name aside, I received a sample from a Sephora order, for their “Lactic Renewal Mask”. The scent is very citrus and milky, I fell in love using the small sample! I immediately ordered a bottle.

It’s not recommended for sensitive skin because it promotes the peeling off of dead skin cells to expose the new, beautiful skin underneath. So if you don’t have sensitive skin, like me, I suggest you give this product a try! I use it 1-2 times a week, whenever I shower it’s just really easy to leave it on~

I’m really looking forward to trying new products this 2012 Summer ~ hope it’s a great one

Anchors Away

I went shopping at Pacific Center’s Aritzia. I don’t know why I like to shop at that over-priced warehouse, but I was happy to pick up the light mint green blazer I had my eye on, along with a pair of cute buttoned shorts. I believe they are called “Talula Starboard Shorts with Anchor Buttons” on the official website.

These shorts aren’t a new item; they’ve been around for as long as I can remember. I know because a couple months back, I spotted them and resisted the urge to buy them. I somewhat regret buying them now, since they were original price at $50CAD, and also because they’re cheap (quality-wise!) as hell. Today at work, one of the anchor buttons actually popped right off!

So much for “fastening the anchor!”

Basically, I paid original price for a garment that fell apart on me the next day. I also happened to take the tags off, so there’s no chance of a return. Thank goodness I’m quite skilled with a needle and thread! I’ll be sewing this button back when I get home after another grueling day of work. (For some reason I work ten days in a row.. is that legal?)

This reminds me of the time where I bought a red Lush blazer and ended up having to sew back a seam on the shoulder area. That blazer cost me a hefty penny too, but I liked it too much to return it!

On another note, when I first bought these shorts I was unsure of them because I didn’t know if they would go well with the rest of my wardrobe. After a day of wearing them, they seem all right style-wise. It’s just the quality that really gets me!

Have you ever had this sort of set-back with a brand new piece of clothing? Had a disappointing experience with Aritzia? Leave a comment!
