Facelift HRM

So it’s old news, but better late then never news. Kate Spade was launched at Mills a couple of weeks ago and Michael Kors is coming to Halifax Shopping Centre in May… good thing Mills brought in Kate Spade… Now here’s hoping something goes into the old Sam the Record Man location… hint, hint, nudge, nudge, know what I mean…

An Oldie, but a Goodie

I’ m a die hard Club Monaco fan. Even though I have a range of names in my closet, the label that takes precedence is the Club. These are two of my favorite blouses  du jour.

Take A Paige From My Book

My hus-friend and I were cottage bound this past weekend. Saturday night we headed to Beach Meadows (outside of Liverpool) for a night of R & R, and Sunday second hand shopping. Coming straight from work, I may have been slightly over dress , but it was weekend living at it’s finest!!!

Spitalfields

I’ll admit it, I’m a chronic eBay shopper. I love a deal and love all the goodies you can find from around the globe. Last week, while looking for some blouses, I came across a pair of used Jules Biker Boots by All Saints Spitalfields up for auction. Action was low, so I placed my bid in hopes I would score them for a low price. As it sometimes goes, I was heavily outbid at the last minute and the Jules went for 70£ plus 12£ shipping. I was gutted, but my spirits quickly lifted when I found them on sale on the actual All Saints site for $115. So in total, I spent only $136 to own a brand new pair of kick ass boots that were originally $298 :)… Happy, happy!!!

Choo Choo Choo Choose Me

I needed a new pair of glasses and noticed that Clearly Contact was having a sale on some pretty sweet names. I scored these Jimmy Choo glasses (complete with prescription, shipping and handling) for under $200.00. I’m just a wee bit excited :P…

Birthday Bash

Last night was my hus-friend’s 34th birthday, so we celebrated! Sushi at Hamachi House, Strongbows at the Celtic Corner, and a mini dance party for two at my place.  I loved what I was wearing, so of course there were photographs :)

The Hunters

I am the proud owner of a new pair of “Sylvie” Hunter riding boots!!! My Hunter wellies have been looking a bit rough these days, so a couple of weeks ago I started the search for a new pair. Instead of rain boots I found these and had to make them mine. I may have to walk around with wellies that have a missing strap and faded logo for a while, but the sacrifice is well worth it. These leather boots are HOT!

Crimson Takes Spring Garden

Well almost… The ladies of lux consignment (Stacey Thompson & Jen McGrath) have left their home at 1351 Birmingham, and moved the Clover closer to Spring Garden Road. You can now find them on the 1st level of the Calnen Photography Studio at 1469 Birmingham. It may not be the old house we’ve come to know and love over the past 2 1/2 years, but the new location still has that irreplaceable Crimson Clover charm.  Stop in to check out the space , and snatch up some of your favorite (new to you) labels while you’re there!

I’m Just a Girl

Tonight I had the opportunity to head to The Summit to check out the recently launched Gwen Stefani for OPI collection. Located in an amazing industrial style space on the lower level of the TD building, the spa specializes in all things esthetics; having served Haligonians for over 23 years. Owner Susan Alward pampered me with an express manicure (or Hands on the Go as it’s called) that consisted of a nail shaping, a mini massage with hydrating Yonka moisturizer, and a polish application. For color I went with Over & Over A-Gwen, which is a fantastic shade of red that is very Gwen Stefani. It reminds me of taking one of her bright shades of lipstick and morphing it into nail polish form. The entire collection is rockstar worthy with a color for every taste and style, and in true OPI form, has a catchy name to go with it. So if you’re feeling a bit dull nail wise, and want to channel your inner Gwen, pop on over to The Summit and get yourself polished!
