Outfit: House Guest Media Event

Wednesday, December 7, 2011
I know that you're dying to know what I wore to the House Guest media event a couple weeks ago.
Not the best quality photos, but that's what happens when you take photos in the middle of an Open Bar event.

This was the first time I'd broken out the sequin jacket in Vancouver (and since NYFW!) and it was such a hit (as I knew it would be)! Although, I had a date afterwards and I excitedly asked him, "Do you like my sequins?!" He said something to the effect of, "Uh...they're...special. And sequin-y....." I replied with, "It's OK, I have a change of clothes to go out in." (Because sometimes straight guys just don't get it and get scared. And sometimes, you just shouldn't wear an awesome sequin jacket to a concert at the Commodore, no matter how awesome the sequin jacket is. Lesson: Be Prepared.)

Dress: Forever 21 Sequin Jacket: Vintage Shoes: Michael Antonio (last seen hereBag: Le Chateau

the lip slip

Thursday, December 1, 2011
Last week I told you about the new lip scrub i bought from Beauty Mark and mentioned that I really wanted to try Sara Happ's the lip slip.

One of my favourite things about Sara Happ's line is that the packaging is just so precious. I love the little boxes and ribbons. You can't really see it in this photo, but the box is a beautiful metallic pink colour...kind of the same as the Alexander Wang Fabiana.

As for the lip balm itself...it is glorious. It's thick and silky (though a little bit sticky). I don't need to apply it often (it stays on my lips forever!) and it doesn't smell or taste bad. It is extremely hydrating and I don't have that itchy lip balm addict feeling I get from other products (this is apparently due to the use of camphor in other similar products).

So all in all, I'm definitely hooked on Sara Happ.
