1. Emma Stone at the Met Gala
You guys- how freaking beyond stunning was Emma Stone at the Met Gala?! Now, I might be a tad biased because she was wearing head to toe pink but everything from her hair down to her clutch was right on point if you ask me! Want this look but don't have a red carpet event coming up any time soon? (Don't worry, I don't either!) Try out this crop with a bright pink maxi and finish it off with a side swept bang, sweet clutch, gold strappy heels and there ya go....Met meets everyday! Image
Last night Sarah and I went to check out what will likely become one of our favorite new stores, Harlow. With it's prime location on high street, amazing selection of accessories, clothing, beauty and decor pieces at great prices - you pretty much can't go wrong! I walked away with these cute earrings and funky bracelet and I think I'll be heading back sooner than later to pick up this bad boy! If you're in Edmonton be sure to go check it out!
1. Waves Coffee
For those of us in yeg's south side, we've all been waiting yeeears (for reals), for this coffee shop to finally open it's doors. It's so nice to have a Starbucks alternative with a welcoming atmosphere and tasty treats, am I right? To date I've sampled an iced latte, rooibos shaken iced tea, a decaf cappuccino, and a cookie or two. All delish! My only criticism is that the interior design needs a little help. That's the designer in me talking!
Whenever I peruse online shopping hotspots, I have a peek at what the experts have pulled as their faves of the moment. Shopbop never disappoints with their stylish but not overdone pieces. The best part about the editor's picks is discovering cool things that I might not have looked at otherwise. How cute is this Miu Miu getup?!?
Ok, I know, I have a problem with cosmetics. Especially when it's a product that is easy and inexpensive. From the just bitten lip stain line that I love, their glossy sister lacquer balm is da bomb for day to day wear. It gives a pop of color with glossy shine, and it's crayon shape is ultra easy to apply. No mess, no fuss, perfect for gals on the go.
Remember all those Sephora goodies that make you smell like a birthday cake smothered in frosting? Good news! They have created a new line, Be Delectable. All the amazing smell, still without parabens and other no no's, for a fraction of the price. I picked up the hair and body mist along with dry shampoo at Superstore.
