Best way to start a weekend, probably the very best way to start a morning. Today I decided to take sometime for myself. I have been pretty sick all week and I am still coming down from this cold, so I figured I would pamper myself today. I scheduled for a hair colour and cut; and penciled in some down time with Tristan (we rarely get weekends together).
This morning I woke up to two packages. For one, I received a much anticipated Narsissist pack from NARS Cosmetics in the mail. Myself and the Narsassist Team touched base on Instagram over some of my favourite beauty items of theirs; so they wanted to send me a couple of samples they thought I would enjoy. I love them! I love them, I love them, I love them!! Not only because it is NARS (NARS is my go-to make up brand) but because they chose the perfect colours and items to send me. I received a Nail Polish Collab item with NARS x 3.1 Phillip Lim in the colour Anarchy. It's like this buttery-taupe colour, I would say its the perfect fall transition from the white nail lacquers we've been seeing all summer. They also sent me an eye shadow duo in the colour combo Jardin Perdu which I think is very complimenting to my hazel/green eyes.
Also, I received a package from Markkit. Markkit is a really cool company that collaborates with different Youtubers to come up with mini collections geared towards trends and each blogger's individual style. The blogger that turned me to Markkit is Claire Marshall (YouTube Channel Here). She has this really great way of showcasing beauty, living and personal style over camera. I can watch and rewatch her videos for days. Anyway within her profile there had been two items I have been eyeing. For one it is this amazing 3D Gold Clutch. Great quality, great size--perfect for fitting my bag essentials and just architecturally beautiful. The other item is this Black (of course) Barbados Top. Super sexy and slinky and can be dressed down or up. These are items that are just easy to incorporate into an already standard wardrobe and are just really exciting items to have.
On another note, last night I travelled over to the BCBG Outlet we have here in Montreal (location here) and found myself with the best Aztech Blanket Inspired Tote (yup-that's what we're calling it). When I first saw this item hanging, the thought that came to mind was to fold it over, have the handles wrap around and carry it as an oversized, statement clutch. It's size and texture make it perfect for keeping your look casual but "dressed up" (for lack of a better term), I am just really excited to carry it around and really transform the day-to-day wears in my closet.
Maybe this week, some of these items will aid in my O.O.T.D's.
So it is almost here, six days to be exact (I do not count today) and so I thought I would put somethings together, things that I would admire to receive this year. My birthday list. Usually I shoot a lot higher than five items but lately I have been in the mood of finding items I really love and will carry forward fur long periods of time. Hopefully my family get a hold of this list, no one has asked me what I wanted yet... Ugh, I love birthdays, especially mine.
