Here’s what I got:
I consider these a flip flop/gladiator sandal hybrid, which isn’t something I’m typically into but I’ve been looking for a flat sandal to wear around on the go and the white and contrasting gold studs caught my eye right away. Also I figure they’d be a nice alternative to a regular flip flop to wear on the beach. And, they were only $13.50 (!!!) at Aldo, marked down from $50!. Couldn’t pass it up. They come in five different colours, so I’d check it out.
I also got some sunglasses. Check them out on Aldo’s website at the following links:
I wanted to get some accessories for my vacation this summer so I decided to take advantage of Ardene’s 5 for $10 sale. Here’s what I got. (Click the picture below to expand.)
1. Turquoise flip flops
Most of my bathing suits have the same blue in them so these are perfect.
2. White bow necklace
I’ve been looking around for a necklace with a bow on it so when I found this gem for $2 I was quite the happy camper.
I saw this when walking past the store on my way to work and was of couse reminded of the Alexander McQueen scarf that looks pretttty similar to it (for a much higher price).
This was part of my June Favourites.

My favourite & most-used products from the month of June : ]
Maybelline Dream Fresh BB cream – $8.99 at Walmart
I already wrote a blog post on this product so I won’t go too in-depth here. But I loveeee this BB cream! Perfect for summer.
Brush Kit from Sparesource (sparesource.ca) – $9.99 at Walmart
A decent, cheap brush kit that I found at Walmart. There are a few different kinds of kits, there one I got is the Pro-Series On-the-Go Face Essentials one, there is also one for eye essentials. Mine came with a full-face, multi-use powder blush, which I use to apply a translucent powder after foundation or blush; a foundation brush (which I don’t use) that can be used to apply a liquid or cream foundation; an angled eyeshadow brush (self explanatory); a crease blender brush, great for getting eyeshadow blended in the crease; and a liner/brow definer, which I use for gel eyeliner.
Skull Scarf – part of a 5 for $10 deal at Ardène (reg. $9.99 I believe)
Got this because it reminded me of the ever so popular Alexander McQueen scarf with a similar pattern. It’s a pretty big scarf, which I like because it doubles as a scarf and a superhero cape (kidding). The one shown on the Ardène website isn’t exactly like the one I got, as mine has bigger skulls all over and a border around them.
Iron Fist pink zombie flats – $19.99 at Dtox (regular price is $40)
I bought these a few months ago in April but have only been wearing them recently after having broken them in. Considering I’m not much of a flats wearing girl, I quite like how these wear. They hurt like most flats do when you first wear them but now that they’ve been worn in a bit I wear them almost every time I go out which is a nice change from my usual Converse shoes.
L’Oreal Paris 24 hour Infallible eyeshadow in 888 Iced Latte – on sale for $5.99 at Jean Coutu (regular price is around $11)
I’m a big fan of shimmery, sheen-like eyeshadows so this one is right up my alley. Out of all the colours in the collection, this was probably my favourite because it’s a bright colour, goes with every thing and looks great for a summery look. I love the packaging of the product too; it’s really compact, something that I’ve been throwing in my makeup bag on a daily basis.
