this week's haul

Hi lovelies, If you haven't noticed I've completely deleted all my old blog posts and have decided to start fresh and new. How do you like my new template? I've shopped quite a bit this week and I wanted to share a couple of the things I've bought! these are a couple of the items that I've bought this week, exciting!


 First off is this lovely travelling bag and scarf that I picked up at H&M, the bag is tan, brown and navy and is quite large so you could use it as an overnight bag or as luggage for a short trip. I have the same scarf in a nudy pink color and I love it so much I decided to get it in navy as well. It's quite thick so I suppose I'll keep for the fall
Bag - $20 - H&M
Scarf - $5 - H&M
I also picked these up at H&M because they are so wonderfully priced! The sunglasses have a purple tint to them and a zebra print on the sides. The bangle is black and made with 50% recycled materials. It's circular on the inside and heart shaped on the outside
Sunglasses - $2 - H&M
Bangle - $2 - H&M
These are the last of the items that I bought at H&M. I haven't tried them yet so I hope they'll fit. They're the type of fold up flats that you can keep in your purses when you're tired of wearing other shoes all day long, plus they're super cute! Fold up flats - $3 - H&M

 I got this lip gloss and this lip stick in Shoppers Drug Mart. The lip gloss is a dark nude colour by Quo and the lip stick is a nice orangey tone by GOSH.
Lip gloss - $3 - QUO
Lip stick #148 Sundown - $3 - GOSH cosmetics

 This a mini 8 piece sampler set of Jr. Watkins products that I also bought in Shoppers Drug Mart. I absolutely loved their products. They're almost 100% natural and smell great. They had their sampler kit on sale so I decided to get one. The items are sample sized but should be enough for a couple uses. The kit was on sale for $10.

 One thing I absolutely can't live without is nail polish. So when I saw these great shades on sale at Shoppers, I couldn't resist! Four of them are from the Kardashian Color series from Nicole by O.P.I and the other three are by GOSH. My favourite of the bunch is the lovely tea green shade!

 Lastly, I bought a couple items at the Body Shop. These I've never tried before but I love mostly all their body products and their makeup. I've been wanted to buy something for my feet because between my two jobs I'm often standing and I wanted some products to help my keep my feet nice and smooth. I always buy my products in store but they have great promotions on their website as well. The product descriptions are partially from The Body Shop website. (Canadian The Body Shop website)
