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!
Hello everyone and welcome back to another blog post ! Happy Monday I hope you’re Monday morning is going well so far. Mine of course and full of sleep deprivation as always but got to keep the blogs going, I am doing so well keeping up this schedule. I knew the more I keep up my blogging the sooner or later I’d find a posting schedule.
For today’s blog post is beauty related, let’s talk about the best beauty advice I’d received or even given. To be honest I somewhat remember some advice but this is a broad subject but I’d do my best. This is all the advice I have been given…
Keep a clean face before applying make up! Wash you face – This removes all dirt and pollution from your face so you can have a fresh face before applying make up. And it also helps your make up apply better !
Match your foundation from your neck not your hand – This is such an great advice I received in college in my make up program, your neck is actually the closet tone to your face NOT your hand.
Don’t leave your make up brushes in the bathroom – I mean how many of us wash our brushes and lay it down and sometimes don’t think to actually put it somewhere to dry? I know I’ve done it. Your going to want to lay your brushes near a window or dry clean area, when leaving it in the bathroom your brushes is actually picking up a lot of bathroom particles in the air and then this get applied to your face !
Keep your makeup brushes clean frequently – This one is a hard one for me but yes the best thing to to constantly keep up with keeping your brushes clean. A clean brushes equals a clean pimple free face.
Not everyone needs to contour their nose ! And contour the sides NOT the tip of the nose ! – I know this one is going to be a hard one for a lot but yeah not all nose shapes need to be contoured, this is one of the best tips I’ve received in college. We all have different shapes so why do they all need to be contoured the same?
Now for the makeup advice I have given or most likely would have given to someone …
Take care of you skin first then makeup – Taking care of your face first helps achieve the best make up application and also helps keep your skin healthy.
Apply mascara to your lashes not your false – This is a trick I actually came up with (in lash post), applying mascara first helps your false blend in well with your natural lash and also maximises your false lash life span.
Applying caster oil or Vaseline at night to lashes or brows help them grow – Yup, its true ! These two products help moisturise your lashes and brows and when applied often your lashes and brows grow quit a bit.
Brushing your brows often stimulates your brows to grow – This practice helps stimulate the root and when done often this allows growth, am one to say it has worked for me.
Have a separate towel for your face to dont use your “body” towel – This I actually never thought of, but if using the same towel for everywhere on your body and then used to wipe your face this can actually cause acne and pimples etc.
I hope some of these advice was helpful in some way, I am so sorry on late posting. I have been so busy this morning, I do now have a consistent posting schedule which are Mondays and Wednesdays. I will always post these days unless I got an extra blog post but I would let you know. Thanks for reading I hope you all have a great Monday !
