Hey everyone, and welcome back to another blog post. Happy Thursday I hope everyone week is going well, for today’s blog post i wanted to share my kids thrift haul in review of some recent purchases I did and how the whole trip went. So funny story my at the time three month old needed a new swing and my mom decided me and my husband to go to ” Once upon a child” a thrift store in Toronto for kids and babies and sell our old one and buy a new used one from there.
I was so hesitant on this because to be honest I am not much of a thrifting person, I never have for me or my oldest most of her clothing comes from zara. So me and my husband get there and I start looking around and omg guys I start getting carried away and picking up items. I have so far made about two trips so far or three and I have bought so much items that came up to about $70.00 CAD, that is about the same amount for three items i buy at zara.
I swear it has became an obsession for me because now whenever I get money that’s all I think about thrifting. I am happy for the least I gave something a try and stepped out my comfort zone, now don’t get me wrong there is nothing wrong with thrift stores but that was the first time I ever really been in one. For my overall experience it was great, the clothing most is new and the ones used is actually not to bad looking you cant really tell for the most that they are used. The service I had was okay I received great service the only thing I think that part of their service that is not so good is how much they give you in selling. It seems what you give to sell they dont pay you as much as what the item may cost, I have picked up some designer clothes from there and they didn’t cost much seriously i paid for some for about $5.00 CAD.
I know it is a thrift store and the whole idea is buying a lot for less but if I paid for an item for a lot I would want at least a decent amount of money back. Another down side was that they sell a lot of cute clothes from newborn till about 3 years and I noticed for my oldest daughter which she is about 5 going on 6 they didn’t have good clothes to me for her age. Pretty much what id buy there for her is about dresses and pj’s. The items I did get were some dresses for my oldest because it was all I can find that i liked, and for my four month old I got some cute shorts for her and some cute outfits I got to find a good decent amount of clothes. My most favourite items from both of them if I had to chose would be one of the dress from my oldest and this cute jeans jacket I found for my youngest. Overall I would say I am now a 100% thrift shopper, I know for sure ill be spending a lot of time there. Thanks for reading, because of a busy day yesterday I did not get to post yesterday I hate when I have to switch up the schedule due to a busy week but I am happy I at least got to get it up today. Monday usual post will be up at 9am EST time for sure, have a great rest of your Thursday!
Hey everyone, and welcome back to another blog post! Happy Wednesday hope everyone is having a great start to their Wednesday? If you have noticed or not I have decided to put a change to my posting schedule and switch it from Wednesday at 3pm to Wednesday at 9am. This puts a little bit more of a pressure on me to get my post up early and scheduled for Wednesday but I’ve been doing a lot of research and I have been studying my feed and I have noticed that my big traffic and audience is more larger at 9am then 3pm. I know Monday can be different from Wednesday but I am going to give it a try ! Now for today’s blog post am going to talk about my current fashion wish list and how my wardrobe is looking at the moment, and future purchases also.
So if you follow me on Instagram you all know I have a huge zara obsession, it is pretty bad when it comes to my kids I love shopping in zara kids I am obsessed ! But now recently I am loving zara women and I swear I am now converting my whole wardrobe to zara. So I have current favourites for my wish list at the moment.
These are some of my wish list items from zara, a premium ribbed dress, faux leather leggings and the ribbed dress. They are all roughly around $40 CAD. My next few items on my wish list are from Miss pap and Missy empire.
The first item from Missy Empire is the grey joggers, I feel like every girl needs at least one pair of joggers in their wardrobe. You can style this piece anyway. The next item is the grey ribbed two piece set, this is an popular outfit I have been seeing it a lot online, I feel like this would make a cute spring, fall and winter statement. The third is a black leather jacket, this is a cute spring and fall jacket to style with any outfit of choice. Lately I have been looking for one I like and that is not pushing it price wise.
My last item on my list is from Nordstrom, I have bag like this but I thought this one was super cute and would look good with any outfit. Which is an transparent cross body bag. This bag is about $49.00 CAD, those would be some of the items on my wish list currently. I have so much more items but of course I dont want to make this post too long. And am sorry if the post seems super short, I stayed up late trying to get this post half way done then currently just finished it while doing mom duties. I wanted to make this post of me not too much talking but more showing the items but hopefully it helped. Next post will be up Monday at 9amEST! Have a great rest of your Wednesday!
Good morning everyone ! and welcome back to another blog post and happy Tuesday to everyone. I hope everyone is having a great start to their Tuesday, Valentines day is now over even though everyday should be valentines day. My valentines day went great it was filled with love and stress as I was also still being a mom but it went how i somewhat expected it to go. I realised sometimes its hard getting that dream date you envision when your a 24/7 parent, as long your significant other tried that all that matters.
Well my Thursday morning started off with a manicure, I was way overdue for one. My husband drove me to the nail bar, this was actually one of my valentines gifts as he paid for my manicure which was super sweet of him. After my nail appointment it was back to mommy duties and reality, when I came home my husband actually ended up surprising me with another gift he hid. After he dropped me off at my nail appointment he actually took our daughter with him to the store to pick up my gift. For over a year now I’ve been obsessing over having a keurig I love coffee, and he actually went out and got it! I was so surprised because the day before valentines day he told me the gifts he had planned on getting was not going to come in by tomorrow which he had lied. He also ended up getting our oldest daughter a heart shaped box of chocolates. We didn’t get to go out that night because he had to work so we put our plans for tomorrow the 15th, so it was pretty much mom duties for the rest of that day.
Later on that night my husbands calls me saying I got a package coming to the door, I really didn’t expect this I thought it was makeup. I answer the door and notice it was a package from Amazon the box was pretty small and really light so am wondering what it can be plus my husband seemed really excited. I quickly open the package and it was a iphone tripod mount, I was wondering why my husband just ordered a mount and not the tripod, my husband knows I’ve been really wanting one to start doing videos and use it for also blogging. Funny thing is he thought the tripod came with mount, and I had to simply explain to him its two separate things. I find my husband funny sometimes but I love that he goes beyond for me, and that what I took into consideration that moment. So since we couldn’t go out that night because my husband had to work we saved the date for the Friday night. So we went out to Moxies bar and grill one of my favourite restaurants, and had a wonderful time. We did a movie and dinner date night, so we went to watch escape room which by the way you all should go watch its so good. Then it was to sephora where he allowed me to pick what I liked and he would buy, which I don’t thing ill ever try and go in on Friday nights again. Overall this year valentines day was amazing hopefully next year me and my husband can go somewhere.
And that is my valentines day in an review, at my best. I cannot complain I could see my husband tried his best to make it special for us which is hard with a baby and a five year old. I wish we could go full on out but being parents you get what you can get. But thanks for reading, I was behind on posting this because you all know my posting schedule is Mondays at 9am and Wednesday at 3pm but yesterday was such an hard day my 3 month old was not having it yesterday. It was a really bad day for her and me I honestly got nothing done yesterday so I am behind for this post but tomorrow post will still be going up usual time. Thanks for all bearing with me and still supporting me, I hope you all have a great rest of the day.
Good morning everyone, welcome back to another blog post. Happy Monday back to a whole new week, I hope everyone morning is going good so far? I noticed I haven’t been doing much make up haul or posts lately and I want to start posting more posts related to beauty for the next upcoming weeks. I decided to do a post on my current favourite lip products I am loving so far, I am so obsessed with these products I am using these four for pretty much every make up look I do. The first three I am obsessed with is from the Fenty beauty line, I am loving the glosses and lipstick. I love the texture and how it feels I first bought the shimmering rose nude loved that and had to try the diamond milk one. I was first hesitant to buying it because I honestly thought it would be like all the other clear glosses but I decided to give it a try, it was more like a last minute quick pick up purchase. But to be honest I love it as much as the fenty glow one it is pretty much the same result I love how it just looks on me. One of the things I love about the fenty beauty line is that the beauty products she makes is for all skin tones and women everywhere, and that is one thing the beauty industry needs more for women. As a women of colour one of the hard things for me when it comes to buying products especially either foundation or lip shades is that its hard for me to find ones that match or go with me perfectly. This is a brand I would continually buy from, I haven’t tried wearing it over other lip shades I usually just wear it alone.
The next product shown that I love is the Blackup gloss, I got this on sale but sadly I found out that it is not for sale on the Sephora site anymore and I am not sure if it would be back. So backup is a brand dedicated to women of colour and it was developed by women of colour and it caters to women of darker skin tones. This is one of the reasons why I fell in love with this product it does what the brand says, this gloss looks so good on me it blends in so well with my skin tone. The gloss is kind of like a clear gloss with a nude undertone it carries different under tone colours, so you can get a rose tone or a more brown tone and etc that is the best way I can explain since I cant bring it up on sephora. The gloss doesn’t come off to sticky the only issue is that when used it sometimes comes out separated from the colour so sometimes clear gloss comes out first then it coming out together.
So those are so far all and current favourite lip products am using when doing my make up. I do not want to go further in more detail with these because i just currently did a Sephora review post on my blog and I did go through these products already. But I wanted to do a separate post on what am currently loving at the moment for winter, if you haven’t tried fenty yet I recommend you do I can not find one thing I dont like. And if you are a women of colour and find it hard like me finding shades that go with your skin tone there is your brand, even if you are not of colour you can also check out the brand they have other products pretty much any one of any shade can still use. That is it for today’s post like & comment i love hearing from you all my next post will be up Wednesday at 3pm Toronto time lol, I am so happy I am finally on a posting schedule!
