My new favorite thing that I should have discovered a few months ago when it was more pertinent to the season: Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray. My locks, if you can even call them that, are ridiculously thin, fine, and straight. Oftentimes I have the problem of my hair falling flat, or just being flat in general. What’s more is that I need to wash it daily because I work in a machine shop and the air gets saturated with oil and other chemicals. And I’m a little bit OCD. Lovely on all fronts, I know.
Canadian brand Aritzia’s private line, Wilfred, has opened its first-ever boutique in Toronto! Featuring Wilfred, Wilfred Free and Le Fou by Wilfred, the shop blends structure with flow, the office with the wilderness. Since the city is more than a hop, skip or jump away from me, I’m still waiting on the day when these pieces are available via the interwebs.
Considering that a music awards show is a perfect opportunity to celebrate both music and fashion, I probably should have been glued to my TV during the MTV VMAs. I wasn’t around for it, but at least I had the internet to rehash it for me: Selena Gomez killed it in her vixen/gothic/lacy/damsel number, ridiculously long nails were a thing (I prefer short and sweet), and a lot of celebs seemed to be wearing black, grey or metallics.

Twin City friends, hide your wallets! Lululemon is coming to town, again. It used to be that when I went on vacation, I would seek out the city’s Lululemon shop and make a special trek there, buy a stash, and find a way to fit it into my already-packed luggage. (Or find limited lines at yoga studios). Then, the Shops at West End opened their doors, with Mall of America following shortly after. (I mean c’mon, MOA didn’t have one?) Now, with a new store set to open late fall on Grand Avenue, this awesome Vancouver brand will be a short drive or bike ride away.
