Summer is almost over, Fall is knocking on our doors, now is the time to put away your Havaianas’ flip flops, summer dresses, bikinis and booty shorts and bring out your Fall essentials; leather coat, knee-high boots and most of all, your favorite scarf! It’s an all-time celeb favorite, wearing them with jeans and a shirt or even a simple dress for a nice and casual outfit.
Boutique Onze strikes again! Let me introduce you to Dot & Lil, a new line of bath products we received this week. Ever since we got them in the store, these cute little soaps have been my bathroom’s new best friends. Dot & Lil products are anything you want them to be: fresh, natural, handmade, local, delicate, colorful, warming, etc. But be careful, they actually smell so good and tasty you might want to try a bite! Handmade in Montreal, these cuties are made with unexpected ingredients such as honeysuckle, satsuma, bergamot, coriander, honey, and more!
The world can be a dirty, gossiping place… whether rumors are started or merely spread, it seems the whole world is always watching. In some circumstances no matter which road you take morally, sometimes the perfect plot (involving you) is so precisely planned that you are lucky if your reputation makes it out alive.
Oh the politics, oh the drama!
I have been on a crazy sushi raid as of late… I have actually been ordering party platters of 80+ pieces just so I can indulge my obsession nonstop for every meal until it’s all gone (no worries people, I usually stick to veggie and crab sticks… can’t say I’m big with messin’ with Mr. Mayo and fresh fish…). Of course I share too… I’m not THAT big of a pig!
I don’t know if it’s the shift in weather, but my taste buds have officially swung out of whack and everything comfort-related has become a major staple/craving in what I choose to ingest. I’m trying to keep it under control and not just eat poutine all day long like my cravings suggest… no easy task…
Sushi is always something that fills you up and keeps you full (good ‘ol rice)… but what I’ve most recently discovered is not the classic seaweed staple but a candied version! Possibly my most favorite sweet treat of all time is rice crispy squares. Something about their subtle sweetness and gooey/crunchy texture that makes me want to run down the street to my local Second Cup and consume the largest one I can find with a skyscraper sized green tea to wash it all down…Green tea kinda detox cancels out the sugar rush right? Hehehehe…Anyways I had a point before the vision of rice crispy squares corrupted my thought process… CANDY RICE CRISPY SQUARE SUSHI!!!
Are you as excited about this as I am?!?!?!
I feel like this is a rather epic find… gummy fishies, pink grapefruit to resemble raw salmon (above), fruit leather and Fruit Rollups as seaweed… whoever came up with this idea is sheer genius! You can even substitute the rice crispies for chocolate ones to get the brown rice roll effect! Coooooolllll….
It’s back to hitting the books and time to re-evaluate your summer style! No more time for primping in front of the mirror, when midterms come-a-calling – it’s all about looking great on a time budget! Bohemian flare will leave you feeling comfortable while you cram for exams and looking every inch as darling as you need to be …
Play up your look with natural makeup laced with a punch of color and adorned hair (think folklore-inspired silk scarf headpieces and jeweled hairpins). Load up on accessories to add to your very eclectic look .
So, how IS back-to-school treating you?
