Since October just came to a close, I thought I would start off November with my favourite purchases from last month. I can't explain how happy I am that November is here. I've already started my Christmas shopping (really early, I know). I'm actually almost done... I love hunting for gifts and I especially love doing it before the crazy Christmas shoppers take over the mall. Through trips to the mall for gifts and online orders, heres a few things I picked up for myself over the last month that I'm loving:


I ordered this dress from Urban Outfitters when I was ordering Christmas gifts. I got it for $19.99 instead of $54 and I am in love with it. It's pretty stretchy even though it's a baggy fit, and it is insanely comfortable. Since the back is so low cut and it's pretty cool outside now, I'll definitely wear something over it. On the few warmer days that will hopefully still come this fall, I'll be throwing it on with tights.


Fall is when I break out my growing collection of candles. Since the majority of mine are back in Ontario, when I saw a buy one get one free sale on 3-wick candles at Bath and Body Works, I couldn't resist picking some up. The two I bought are Vanilla Chai and Hot Buttered Rum. They both smell amazing and I'll definitely be burning them for the rest of the fall and into winter.


This book shows how far hard work and passion can get you. If you're a girl who's interested in entrepreneurship, have an interest in business in general, or are just looking for something to read, I definitely recommend you give it a try. Sophia Amoruso is the founder and CEO of online-retailer Nasty Gal. Some parts of Sophia's story are hilarious and really relatable. I started this book on a lazy Sunday and was finished it by the next day. It's a very easy read and is a push in the right direction if you're lacking motivation. 


I bought this kit because in the last month I've been having a lot of problems with my skin (breakouts, dry patches). My skin is pretty sensitive, so after doing some research, I decided to go with the Alpha Beta Peel Original Formula. I'm on my seventh day of the kit, but I noticed a difference in my skin right away. After my first night using it, my skin looked a lot brighter, felt a lot smoother and looked less dull than it had before. I'm halfway through now and my skin looks a lot brighter, it's so smooth, my acne scars have started to fade, and my skin is the clearest it's been in a while. I love how simple it is: the peel is two different wipes, used in the morning or at night and then followed with Dr Dennis Gross Skincare Ferulic Acid + Retinol Brightening Solution. It's a little pricey ($59CAD), but I definitely think it's worth it. I'll be going to buy more of the peel once I'm done with this kit. An added bonus: it's vegan and cruelty free!

I'm definitely looking forward to snow and Christmas. Be prepared for Christmas themed posts to start popping up soon!



  1. I have been wanting to read that book and that dress is a fun piece. Looks very comfortable and with that price you can't beat that.

  2. I've recently discovered your blog and I really like it! I'm following you now
    Hope you'll like mine too!

  3. I really need to jump on the bandwagon and read #girlboss. I know, I'm a slacker. I've heard nothing but good things about it. Also, I'm digging that OU purchase. Even better that it was at a discount!
