Aveda Lip Shine – Honeysuckle

I actually got this lip shine a really long time ago and they don’t sell this exact one but they have similar ones. These is great for going out when you don’t want your lips to be dramatic but you want something there! I got these at Aveda for $17.00.

Skin Care Favourite:

Sephora Face Brush

I use this every once in awhile when my face needs a good scrub to get all the dead skin off. It’s not too rough but it gets the job done, sadly Sephora doesn’t sell this exact one anymore but they do have a double ended one now for $19.00! Two for one!

Hair Care Favourite:

aussie-kit-shampoo-condicionador

Aussie Moist Shampoo and Conditioner

I have used this shampoo and conditioner for years now and I still think it is the best everyday shampoo. It’s cheap, it lasts a long time and it smells great. When Target was in Canada you could get it for $3.00, Walmart usually has it for $5.00 and Shoppers Drug Mart has it for $8.00!

Dynamite Lace Peplum with Back Cutouts

I shop this shopping with my sister for my uncles birthday party when I saw this shirt. I fell in love with it right away, tried it on and bought it. You can wear it with or without a bra, it’s comfortable either way and I’m a pretty chesty woman. You can get this at Dynamite for $39.95.

Whole Home Noel Folk Dance Blanket

I could not for the life of me find a picture of this blanket online which tells me they don’t sell it anymore. I would have to wait to see around Christmas time to see if it comes out again.  I got this blanket as a Christmas gift but it’s from Sears. It’s so comfy, it isn’t itchy, it’s light weight but keeps you warm. It’s a great couch blanket as well. I however don’t know how much it cost because I got this blanket two Christmas’ ago.

North Face Venture Jacket 

I got this jacket at an outlet mall so it was cheaper than what they would be at a normal store. This jacket is a life saver in the rain, I stayed completely dry in a rain storm with no umbrella. They come in all different colours so there’s one for everyone. Mine was roughly $129.00 at a North Face Store.

Breakup To Makeup Bag 

Awhile back I went shopping with my sister and found this at Sephora. It’s a makeup bag that reminds you no matter what happens in life, you can still truck on and be strong. There’s three different bags, mine is the one above, the others say, “Losing you hurt but losing my makeup bag would be a tragedy” and “Life is short, wear more makeup.” It’s a pretty good bag, I don’t have that much makeup so it all fits in the one bag but if you do have a lot of makeup it’s a good travel makeup bag. These bags are vegan and cruelty-free so they’re badass. You can get these bags at Sephora for $30.00.

Up & Up Sport Sunscreen Continuous Spray – SPF 30

Summer is officially here so we need to protect ourselves! I say this a lot because I have ginger skin even though I’m not a ginger, I burn easy and burns hurt and can turn into cancer and what not. We just don’t want that. In my opinion you don’t need to spend a lot of money on sunscreen, they all have the same thing in it just different brands. For your face, maybe you should spend a little bit more on it but for the rest of your body whats the point? The only thing you really need to focus on is the SPF. Ever since Target was in Canada I used theirs but they are no longer here as you guys all know! I don’t even know how much this was because I got it awhile ago but it’s not expensive at all.

Aveda Sun Care After-Sun Hair Masque

I live for this stuff! I wrote about the shampoo awhile ago in one of my monthly favourites but here is the masque that you use after the shampoo. As I’ve said before I work in a pool so my hair gets damage easily. The shampoo gets all the chlorine, salt, and product build up out and this restores your hair. Ever since I bought this again after awhile of not using it my hair hasn’t turned blonde from the chlorine bleaching it, and my hair stays soft. I use it after every time I come out of the water, and on Thursday I use it about 3 times in one day. You can get this at Aveda for $27.00.

Aveda Singular Notes: Vanilla Absolute

A couple months ago when I went shopping with my sister we stopped at Aveda to get chlorine shampoo, they had these sweet donation that if you donated $10 you get a back massage. When they did it you get to pick the smells you want to relax you and what not. This is the one I used, it smelt amazing, it made the massage THAT much better, it was honestly heaven. You can get this at Aveda for $27.50.

Home Favourite:

Nexus7

Nexus 7 Tablet

I got this a couple years ago for Christmas from my loving mum. This is such a badass gift because you can do so much on a tablet, I watch movies all the time on here or use it when my phone needs to be charged. It’s great, I don’t believe they sell this one anymore but they have new versions! Any electronic store will have tablets for sale.

Music Favourite:

Cheerleader by OMI

I’m sure you’ve heard this song before since it’s all over the radio but I’m in love with this song, it’s a great beat for the summer! Check it out.

Fujifilm Instax Share Printer SP-1

I heard about this awhile ago and I thought it was just one of those things people make up and it doesn’t actually exist. I was actually in Best Buy one day and I saw it, I grabbed it right away and bought it with a couple of films to go with it. This thing is amazing, there’s an app you can download and it works wireless through WiFi. I’ve printed off about 12 pictures from my phone from this. It’s great and it goes well with the cameras they have.

Target Canada Closing – My Opinion

Yesterday morning Target Canada announced that they will be closing all 133 stores, leaving 17,000 people without jobs.

From my understanding Target Canada was only open for two years and in my opinion was a lot better than Shoppers Drug Mart and Walmart. I use AUSSIE shampoo, from time to time I switch it up and try something new but AUSSIE is my go to brand. At Shoppers Drug Mart my shampoo and conditioner is $8.00 each; at Walmart the same shampoo and conditioner is $5.00 each; and of course at Target Canada the same shampoo and conditioner is $3.00 each (sometimes $2.00).

That’s why I shop at Target Canada.

I’m not saying Target has all the best deals because they don’t, but the things you use everyday and buy a lot more of is cheaper than anywhere else.

From my understanding Target Canada is closing because in the two years they’ve been open they’ve lost billions of dollars and said they wouldn’t make any profit until 2020 if they keep the Canadian stores open. I was quickly reading an article  about this and someone said (I think it was the CEO, I could be wrong) that it was plain and simple, Canada didn’t do what we wanted it to do so they’re being closed down.

That sounds pretty rude to me but it’s just business everyone.

In my opinion Target went at coming to Canada all wrong. They opened 133 stores as fast as they could, instead they should of opened them slowly, maybe one in each major city. In Brampton alone there’s 4-5 I believe and most of them are at malls (which closing the ones in the malls will close them even more money, they said millions just in closing Targets at malls).

Since they did it their way and opened all 133 stores at once and it didn’t work out, I’m wondering why they didn’t do what Sears did and close a couple of stores to save money? Because they’ve decided to close them all at once, leaving us Canadians teased, I think they’ve made a bad name for themselves.

The best part about them closing down is that City Pulse 24 News released that Target Canada was closing before the stores told their employees, leaving some to find out from the news that they no longer have a job. I know this because my sister and a couple of friends are some of the 17,000 people who no longer have a job.

In the end I think Target Canada will be missed by some.
