Ardene, a Canadian store that's quite similar to Claire's (which we also have here), has these really neat "surprise bags" that are 2 for $5. Each bag contains five pieces of jewellery or hair accessories. They also have 2 for $8 surprise bags that have tank tops, scarves, etc. in them, but right now I prefer the smaller bags!
The two necklaces, which are from Ardene's Glam line, are SO dang pretty! I need to hang them and photograph them again because they just don't look right here. The lip glosses are nice and shimmery, with subtle scents; the darker pink smells like strawberries. They're really sticky, but they're great to throw in my purse and touch up my lips.
The only thing I don't like about surprise bags is the hairties I so frequently get, but that's only because my hair is too short for them! I just pass them on to friends with longer hair :) The two black & white things on the far left are sunglasses cords, which I'm not sure I'll use! I love how both bags coincidentally have a black & white theme going on!
Ardene also had hair accessories 5 for $10, so I picked up some hair flowers.
They add some brightness to my current collection of hair flowers...
I think I'll start posting my style looks every now and then. I think it will motivate me to stop being lazy and dress more nicely!
In other news... it's my birthday weekend! Wow!! Saturday we're heading to a festival on Bloor and possibly the Stoufville Country Market, so I should really get to bed and get some sleep. Night!
