helloberry obsession!

I recently discovered helloberry and instantly fell in love!
They are based in Toronto, and run by 3 lovely ladies :)

I purchased the 'snowberry mini smoothie' (above) and my cousin
decided to get the 'peach mini smoothie'. Very cute and chic :)

They recently released their new Spring Harvest collection for 2012!
I am loving the 'blueberry' and the 'green apple'. SO tempted!!!
You can purchase their bracelets here :)

They're also offering FREE SHIPPING today (LEAP DAY) :)

Have fun shopping :p

coral blossom

Base: Sally Hansen Green Tea & Olive base coat
Colour: OPI 'Are We There Yet?'
Design: Konad image plate S9
Top: Konad top coat

Some things I picked up during the past weekend.
I had the Tazo calm tea once at Starbucks and enjoyed it, so I picked
a box up, since I'm sick :( and I recently discovered AFAR magazine.
AFAR is a travel magazine and I fell in love with it the moment I saw it!
well designed spreads as well :)

Hope you're all having a great start to your week!

little treasures.

I have been wanting the L de Lolita Lempicka eau de parfum for a while now, so when I saw it at
Shoppers Drug Mart for $20 (30ml), I couldn't decide if I really wanted it. I couldn't stop
thinking about it for weeks, I went back and they were sold out -.- I went to another location
yesterday and saw that they had over 10 in stock, so I knew I had to get it :p

Honestly, I originally wanted it for the bottle >> but I do like the smell as well.
It's not a scent everyone would enjoy... here are the fragrant notes:

Top notes: cinnamon, bitter orange
Middle notes: immortelle, vanilla
Base notes: woods, musk

Sephora was selling the 30ml for $58, wth? -.-

and I picked up this lovely purse/clutch from H&M! :) in love <3
It was around $17 and that's a pretty good price compared to their other
handbags, that aren't sturdy at all...

Frosted Flakes...

No, I'm not talking about the cereal :p This design made me come up with that name :)
It has been snowing quite a bit where I live, which was nice until it got all slushy and grey.

Base: Sally Hansen Green Tea & Olive base coat
Colour: Nubar 'Blue Hydrangea'
Design: Konad image plate M59 snowflakes
Top: Konad top coat

and this is what I have been doing the past week :p
I decided to try the Mixed Berry oatmeal... tastes alright :p
I still prefer the maple & brown sugar, as well as the apple cinnamon more :)

I've also been eating quite a bit of popcorn since Ric decided to visit for 2 weeks.
We try to only eat it when watching Once Upon a Time or a movie :)
We saw 'In Time' starring Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried,
earlier today and was pretty good :) not a very long movie either.

and Happy Family day!
I went out earlier today with my family and Ric for High Tea :)
My dad wasn't happy with the service though ><

Vanessa Mooney Amethyst Teardrop Earrings

Get the earrings before they're gone! I bought these on Shopbop for $11.18, regularly $37!
I have been wanting these earrings for a while, ever since I saw them on the official Vanessa
Mooney website :p I originally wanted the 'light sapphire', but it was sold out :( but then I
thought about how the amethyst would look against my hair XD somewhat more of a subtle
and sophisticated choice of colour I guess :) I was going to get the 'crystal' as well, but I don't
like having two of the same things, so I decided on the amethyst :)

Just click on my Shopbop link above to get to the earrings :)

Iris Dust

I'm always up for unique nail colours, so when I stumbled upon Nubar's 'Iris Dust', I had to try it :)
Sorry for the uneven coats on the thumb and ring finger >< had a little 'accident' >>

Base: Sally Hansen Green Tea & Olive base coat
Colour: Nubar 'Iris Dust' (3 coats, as it's quite sheer)
Design: Konad Image Plate M87 (new plate!)
Top: Konad top coat

I guess this is like a 'half moon' manicure, but with a twist :p

Shoe envy.

01 Clarendon Wedge. 02 Remson side bow flat. 03 Clarendon Wedge 
04 Cassidy bow flat .05 Hilari peep toe. 06 Sarah stripe wedge
Admit it, you love shoes too :p

All of the shoes above are from Payless. Is it just me or does the United States have a better
selection of shoes... anywhere! :( I wish Payless would have an online store for Canada...
I mean, what the heck is taking them so long!? they even have a website for Canadians, but
you can't even order from there :( Yes, I envy you people in the States >>

Whenever I go into a Payless shoe store where I live, I never see a good selection of styles
and SIZE. I'm a size 5 or smaller, so it's difficult for me to find shoes that fit. Am I going
to the wrong places? please let me know.

I am still on the hunt for a nice nude heel and I'm thinking of investing in a pair from a
website called Pretty Small Shoes. They're all handmade and have sizes from 32-35!
They often have nice sales near the end of the year :)

I am a Zipia Addict.

These are just some of the items I am thinking of getting for the spring/summer.
I honestly don't shop from there all the time, maybe 1-2 times a year along with
many other people to cover up the minimum spending of $300-500.

If I had a full time job, I don't know what would happen honestly XD

I think I started to shop online more often in 2010?
It was probably because of my sudden addiction to eBay, that led me to other things >>
Although, now I try not to buy clothes online because it can be difficult to see the size
and quality of the garment. I think my worst online shopping experience was from
Forever21 and eBay, in terms of buying clothing and accessories. It can be a bit tricky,
but I think I've learned my lesson :p

I believe that shopping in person will save me more money, in the long run.
Unfortunately, I can't quite let go of Zipia just yet, just because I love their styles
and most of their items are made in South Korea. I can easily get pants that fit me
as well, because I am quite petite. Plus, I don't like shopping in person, because I
can be so indecisive... I can literally stay in the store deciding if I should get one item
of clothing for an hour or more. That is why I like to shop alone lol :p

Crow Perfume review

I'm not someone who wears perfume often, but I stumbled across Crow Perfume through Irene from
YouTube (aka Pinkie Charm). I will never be able to finish a whole bottle of perfume, so I decided
to get samples. I picked up No.1, 2, 3, and 4 because they seemed like scents I would like to wear.

Crow Perfumes are water based and does not contain any alcohol, parabens, or phthalates.
The full size bottles cost $48 containing about 50ml of the perfume.

You can order sample sets of 3 or 6. I ordered 3, but they kindly gave me 4!
My favourites are No.1 and 4 :)

No.1 lasts almost all day on me, leaving a soft scent of vanilla and jasmine :)
No.4 reminds me of Elizabeth Arden's Green Tea perfume, but with a touch of citrus.
This scent doesn't last as long on me as No.1... maybe for a few hours :(

and the best part? (for me anyway :p), I like to add No.4 on top of No.1 at the end of
the day to freshen up the scent. It also becomes a new scent on me that I love! <3

No.2 is a lovely scent, where the rose and jasmine really blends well together :)
You can definitely smell the hint of peach, although it's pretty subtle.
This scent is elegant and I can see women wearing this to work on a daily basis.

No.3 is unique and I'm sorry, but I don't know how to describe this scent! -.-
but I can definitely smell the 'ozone', it's a bit earthy but still floral.

If you're looking for something that is water based, light, and for everyday, I would
definitely suggest looking into these lovely scents! Be sure to get the samples before
buying the full size bottle(s) though :p

Aside from the lovely scents, they come in beautiful packaging :)

Golden Spectacle

I recently bought a few items with a friend from :)
I'm wearing the skirt and starfish earrings :D
I also bought a yellow cardigan, but that will make its appearance some other day :)

I paired it with a faux snake skin belt because the skirt was a bit too big for me ><
I think it goes well with the belt :) and I am loving the texture!
I'm selling the earrings on the right... just thought I would post a photo of them because
they look beautiful on their own :) They're a bit big in size, about 2.5cm wide.

Base: Sally Hansen Green Tea & Olive base coat
Colour: Nubar "Mod Agua"(means 'water' in Spanish)
Design: Konad image plate M84
Glitter: CM diamond glitter
Top: Konad top coat

I decided to do a simple design this week, I wasn't really inspired by anything.
I have a nice idea for next week's design though :D

I just came home from a family dinner. It was to celebrate my aunt's birthday
and Chinese New Year's at the same time. One of my cousin's gave me this
adorable 'red pocket', with the little ears peeking up from the envelope XD

I've been addicted to this song recently :)
