Twinkle Toes

Sparkle is the new black. Stated in a recent article by the Globe & Mail in reference to Patricia Fields' fashion outlook for the sea of sparkle & shine seen in the Sex and the City2 movie.
While shopping at Forever 21, I spotted these beauties and just had to have them- besides I need to work on my sparkle as well!

Even my puggie Winston is luving them!

New vodka cocktail


Last Wednesday at the Eve Gravel Atelier Sale event, I discovered a new cocktail that is simply decadent! Rightfully called Urb'nLili as it concocted for fashionista urbanites, this vodka beverage is made with real juices and herbal extracts. What's more, it is Made in Quebec!


So perfect for SATC2 pre and post movie cocktails!

3 Sizes per Style

This past weekend, I was Sunday shopping at Mango boutique on Ste-Catherine when I came across this signage. It is so clever that I had to share!
For you Anglophones, it states that for aesthetics reasons, they are featuring three sizes per style and customers should feel free to request for theirs if it's not present.


I always wondered why retailers didn't adhere to this mode of effortless merchandising.
The last thing I want when I step foot in a store is too feel overwhelm by overstock on top of my guilty conscious for my increasing Visa bill!
