Pokemon Jumper

When I ordered my Pikachu backpack, Japan LA also sent me a free Pokemon Jumper as part of a promotion. It’s like the comfiest and most random thing, but going to the washroom in one of these is still a mystery.

Pikachu Backpack

I saw this Pokemon Loungefly mini backpack in the Japan LA online store and I couldn’t resist getting it.

The interior even has lightning bolts.

It’s faux leather, but looks sturdy and well-made. Adding it to my pika-style wardrobe.

I also got this adorable Stranger Things tee from Teefury. It features all the kid stars!

Eleven even has an Eggo in her hand!

Sailor Moon Christmas Sweater

I found the cutest Sailor Moon Christmas Sweater on Tee Fury!  I don’t think I will ever be too old for my favourite female super heroes.

SHANY Eyeliner

SHANY had a sale so along with the eyeshadows in my previous post, I picked up their set of 12 Gel Eyeliners.

The 12 colours are beautiful. There are some funky ones like orange and a pale green but I think they’d be great for doing some detailed artwork on the eyes (imagine leopard print eyelids).

The colours are super pigmented. It didn’t take much for these swatches on my arm. It is also smudge and waterproof so my eye artwork can stay on all day.

I’m excited to play with these and do some fun things!

Staying Warm

The temperatures are finally dipping this week. We saw our first snowflakes on Sunday. Monday afterwork I splurged on some things to keep me warm:

It snows once

I’ve never bought under shirts for winter but I couldn’t resist trying Uniqlo’s Heattech line. It has special fibres to keep the wearer warm or extra warm (which I decided choose). There’s also Argan Oil to keep your winter skin comfortable. I’m excited to test it in cold weather. It’s so thin that it doesn’t add much bulk.

I wanted warm waterproof boot thats were more work appropriate than the fluffy boots and these were perfect. I love my new Sorel Lola boots!

The soles are rugged, which is important to me when buying boots because I am a total clutz, so anything that improves my stability is a plus. Plus, they look great too.

Now I’m all ready for going to work in the cold!

Tight Knit Syria

To keep my neck warm this winter, I ordered an infinity scarf from Tight Knit Syria. The company helps to keep Syrian women resilient and productive during dire times. They also break down economic barriers by connecting the women with international designers, retailers and wholesalers.

My scarf was made by a Syrian woman in the Shatila Camp in Lebanon. It is very well-crafted.

And so pretty too! I love pieces that are both in style and can support a great cause too.

Hopsooken Backpack

I was approached by Hopsooken to purchase a backpack on Amazon at a discounted price. $7.99 seemed like a deal for a backpack that could be compressed into a little pouch. I brought it with me on a few trips as an extra. When compressed, it’s like the size of a clutch.

Expanded, it is a pretty roomy backpack. The materials are very light, but at the same time it felt very artificial and cheap. The zippers were very unreliable and frequently got stuck. I wanted to like the backpack but it’s no good if I can’t close it!

New Glasses!

I haven’t worn glasses in years, which is strange because in grade 5 I would have trouble seeing the chalkboard. Then one day in high school, I decided not to wear them or I lost them (I honestly don’t know why I stopped wearing glasses) and the rest seems to be history.

Weirdly, my eyes seems to have improved. I had my eyes checked and my prescription has actually gone down! I didn’t think that was a thing that was possible. Maybe I ate too many carrots or something.

Anyways, I bought myself a new pair of glasses with my prescription and I think I look 10 years older in them.

Doggy Print

Simons, a department store from Quebec recently opened in Mississauga. My sister and I went scouring the racks last weekend. My favourite finds were a blouse and a shirt that both had terrier prints.
