Walking the Queen West Streets

Just the other day, I was accompained by the lovely Sarah from Big Hips Red Lips down Queen Street West, Toronto, for a day of shopping! Oh, how I love the city.

 After a delicious meal of everything fried, we touched-up in the powder room quick before heading out into the rain to take on the daunting task of thrift shopping in my favourite thrift store, Black Market.

Touch-ups are essential to any fashionista - especially when it rains

 Sarah found a lovely cardi which I told her she just had to get - we tried on some movie-star shades, and I grabbed some graphic tees for $1.99. I end up cutting and cropping the tops/necks off these - they are perfect for lazy, comfy days when all you want to wear are leggings and a tee. A girl can't be glamorous all the time, but she can be cool.

Finally, after a long afternoon of walking in the rain, finding fabulous thrift finds, raiding the jewelry store sales, we end up at another favourite store of mine, Lush - where we are immediately treated to a hand massage.The girl working there was adorable ~ incredibly chatty, welcoming and incredibly knowledgeable about the fabulous natural products offered at Lush.

Getting the royal treatment
Girlfriends, food, shopping and pampering ~ it's like sex for my feminine spirit.

  5. I see a lot of blogs like this. And the girls are always pretty tall. Why don't more people think plus size short girls are cute. Even plus (and hell regular sized) are always tall.
