Blushing Bride, with Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere

I’m not even a bit of makeup person but since my best friend’s wedding is coming up, it’s time I learned a little something. Granted, I do have the most basic makeup routine but I’ve never gone so far as using concealer and foundation and primer and all that jazz, which I believe is the key to the whole, lit from within beauty look. Let the learning continue!

Trip to Sherway Gardens

I still go to the same dentist I’ve been going to since I was a little girl. And everyone in that office knows me, so even though I’ve been living downtown for ages – I still commute for about an hour by public transit to go there for checkups and cleanings. Today was a bit special because my darling was able to give me a ride, which is heaps quicker, so quick really that we were a half hour early.

Since were were in my old neighborhood, I thought it would be good to check out the mall I used to frequent as high schooler, Sherway Gardens — and maybe get a bit more holiday shopping done.

Of course, the mall has had its fair share of renovations and new stores, but there place was still like how I remembered, from the Gap where my best friends used to work at down to the continued traditions of having a gingerbread making cookie station.

It was a pretty good trip — considering it wasn’t a packed madhouse of shopping crowds.
