Boxing Day, add to cart #1

You would think that post Christmas my shopping addiction would be curbed but let’s be real… Boxing Day is irresistible. The lure of all the things you didn’t receive from your wish list, suddenly being on sale, is just too good.

Boxing Day sales ensnared me with their email campaigns and I found myself gleefully adding to cart.

Let’s see what arrived first (because honestly, in the whirlwind of it all I probably already forget what’s on it’s way).

I’ve long wanted my own copy of the game for horrible people. Everyone and their obnoxious siblings owns it. I decided to order my copy in time for my son’s birthday.

It was a horribly wonderful way to celebrate his 19th birthday with him.

The other thing I finally splurged on is a milk frother!! You might thing, but Emma that sounds lame (& maybe you are right) but my frothy chai latte says otherwise. I will literally never need Starbucks again.

Lets give it a whirl shall we?

This is bringing me a stupid amount of glee. I bought the Secura milk frother linked above but scored it for only $49!

This ASOS Curve dress was a long shot since ordering it online without being able to try it on and it’s a style that I’ve never tried. Not to mention this was much more form fitting than my usual look but it was well worth the risk!

I’m so completely in love with bright colours although I tend to reserve them to home decor far too often. I’m always telling myself, this season I will buy all the colours!

We had endless amounts of rain over my vacation so of course now that I’m work ready… the sun is shining once again. I’m loving this outfit, mostly from Eloqui as the perfect day to night type of look. This will be going into the suitcase for work trips this summer.

When life gets a little too hectic and you have zero time to blog, you go on vacation!

I wish I could regale you with stories of wild pool parties, exotic locations and a killer tan but since I already live in on of Canada’s favourite vacation locales I spent a week off just enjoying my town and completely winding down.

It was perfection.

The Pink Lady

Since our teen years haven’t we all wanted to be part of The Pink Ladies and wear the coveted satin jacket?

I’m not going to even dig into my love of Rizzo and pencil skits right now but I did find the perfect satin bomber for myself recently from Charlotte Russe!

fullsizeoutput_628fullsizeoutput_627

I fell in love with this jacket after having seen much more expensive versions all over lately. I wasn’t ready to commit a lot of funds for this possibly fleeting fashion but this one is available in standard and plus sizes from Charlotte Russe and currently on sale for under $25!!

The Boohoo Coated denim pants from ASOS Curve were another great deal for $30 but there are only a few pairs left now and they are going for $15! Rush to ASOS for this steal but I would suggest sizing up as they were tighter than I expected.

I’m loving the sunny Spring weather and recently got the pink redone in my hair which always makes me feel wonderful.
