I'm in a Magazine!

Last week I received a text from a friend – she had seen my picture in Glow Magazine. I was so excited that my Clairol #shiftashade experience was printed in a full page feature (page 59 here)…I can’t wait to get hold of a print copy!

We recently returned from a mini-break to Muskoka – it was quite a change from our visit in the summer! We had so much fun playing outside and learning how to snow-shoe. By the way, my H&M crossbody bag is going strong 4 years later – it was the perfect bag to take outdoors: it kept my cellphone safe and I didn’t have to worry about it getting ruined.

Speaking of old favorites, I’m still loving my Old Navy fox sweater!

Sweater: Old Navy (similar), Bag: Louis Vuitton Speedy 25, Boots: Old Navy (this year’s version)

Since I can’t stop wearing plaid blanket scarves, I’ve added this new one to my collection. When I’m not wearing them around my neck, I like to fold them in half and wear them as shawls.

Shirt: Express, Scarf: c/o Sheinside (similar), Bag: Louis Vuitton Speedy 25, Boots: Old Navy (this year’s version)

Another recent arrival is this stunning metallic necklace from Pink Lovebird – I love pairing it with my new metallic heels!

Shirt: H&M, Jeans: GAP (similar), Heels: Marc Fisher (similar), Necklace: c/o Pink Lovebird

Speaking of shoes – I’m desperately stocking up on all the Target goodies I can find before they leave Canada (sob, sob…I’m still sad about this!) I think the cap-toe espadrilles will be especially popular this summer – they’re very Chanel-inspired! I’m also keeping an eye out for these gold glitter sandals – they’re SO beautiful!

Do you have any bargain favorites that are still going strong – like my H&M bag?

UPDATE: Hubby picked up 2 copies of GLOW magazine:

Linking up with More Pieces of Me and On the Daily Express.

      I know! It was the best surprise ever 🙂 I'd been asked previously if I'd be open to having my picture used in a print feature – but I thought it would be a small thumbnail or something – and I wasn't told about timing or which magazine…so I was in shock when my friend texted me!

    Congrats! You look stunning in that picture. Ah, each time I pass those espadrilles at Target I want to pick them up but the reviews online keep me from purchasing them (apparently they start falling apart). Have you worn them yet? How do they seem to you?
