well happy monday!  the sun is shining here in vancouver and though i would essentially call my "sleep" last night a series of naps (case of the classic sunday stomach ache), i am in good spirits and ready to tackle the work week.


wore this mix of florals, stripes, and colour to the london drugs beauty event last week.  it took place at the lookout vancouver, which is a glass elevator ride up to a 360 degree view of the city.  and it wasn't just an amazing location, the event itself was an absolute blast.  we were lucky enough to get some samples and sneak peeks at upcoming fall 2012 beauty products including polishes, make up lines, fragrances, and skin care. but rather than have me ramble on about it, check out miss melissa's post about the evening.  she's got some great photos!

hope you have an amazing day and stay tuned for a new giveaway tonight!
