Summer Lips

1

Even though I like a lot of lipstick at all times of year, there is something about wearing a bright lip with a breezy summer dress or denim shorts and sandals. Bright lips are a good summer look for me because I hardly wear eye makeup in the summer  (too hot) so it brightens up my face without even trying. Another fun thing about lipstick is that it comes in so many colours that you can wear one for every day of the week. Here are my lips trying on eleven of my favourite colours for summer:

Spring Shoes

As I write this the sun is shinning and there is a delightful breeze that is the very definition of spring. Birds are flying at the window, and tree branches are wrestling in the sky. It’s the perfect weather. It’s the kind of weather that calls for lots of walking. It’s the kind of weather that calls for new shoes (especially when you haven’t bought any in a long time), and it’s the kind of weather that calls for ice cream and cute dresses to go with the cute shoes that you might be buying. Where did I go to get my cute shoes? To Payless Shoe Source. I found several pairs that will go quite nicely with my spring/summer dresses. Here they are:

  1. Floral

The pointed white floral shoes pair nicely with jumpsuits and mid-length dresses, and the blue floral shoes look amazing with full skirt dresses and skinny pants.

2. Classic

The brown flats are my nude shoes: they pair nicely with patterned dresses that I want a non-assuming shoe to go with, and the black shoes are perfect for slim leg pants and jeans. Both are very comfortable.

3. Solid Colour

IMG_0034The weird thing about these shoes is that they furl up when you’re not wearing them – like some kind of animal – and they have a million holes in them. But guess what? They’re very cute on and very comfortable. I can see myself walking for a long time in these beauties (wearing a casual spring/summer dress).

My Top (Drugstore) Autumn/W—— Lipsticks

You may have heard about how much I love lipstick.

Lately, new lipsticks have given the older ones an old shove in the save for later box. The box that I sometimes forget about when I’m smack dab in the middle of a lipstick roll. The reds, pinks, oranges, reds, pinks, oranges….

These are my current favourite Autumn/W—– lipsticks:

St. Lawrence Market & The Australian Connection


Photo Credit: My Glass Condos 

I met up with a friend (named Ivana and her friend Rachel) who visited Toronto as part of a glorious round trip tour of U.S. and Canada. Ivana and her friend are two lovely Aussie ladies who, although I didn’t have a lot of time, I had plenty of fun with!

We hit up St. Lawrence Market, the number one food and goods market in the world – according to the very astute National Geographic, and we ate our way through various sample cheeses, pretzels and Canadian mustard, and, of course, glorious Canadian Peller Estates wine.
