I REALLY LOVE - VICTORIA'S SECRET

VS1

For those of you who don't know, Victoria's Secret recently launched a new line called "Simple Sexy" which I have completely fallen head over heels for. The Simple Sexy line is everything I look for in lingerie, and that is beautiful, simple pieces, that are comfortable for everyday wear. I already purchased the Perfect Shape T-Shirt Bra in a couple different colours a few months ago by way of suggestion from one of the girls working the floor and I am so, so, glad I did...

The thing is, I have major issues finding bras sized for me, let alone ones that are comfortable. I have a very small (28") ribcage and a pretty full bust...I'm sure many of you would be envious of this, but if I could change one thing about myself that would be it. It's a righteous pain in the butt! Regardless, I was extremely excited to see that VS started offering this line with a larger range of sizes. Busty girls who shop at VS will understand...we are always stuck with the ugly bras!

VS3

So this weekend I went in to my local shop to see what I could find and I was delighted to see that my favourite t-shirt bra is now available in an unlined version! The Unlined Demi Bra is super comfy and a great choice for a more natural look. It's true, unlined doesn't work for everything (or everyone), but this one holds everything together quite nicely. I definitely see myself getting a lot of wear out of this in the Fall especially...with all those layers you don't really need much anyway. The only way it could get better is if VS would create wire-free version that still kept us larger girls intact...one day.

The only thing I regret is not buying more. I really really love this bra and I know I should probably get back to the mall to pick up some more colours before they're all gone! I also tried on the Limited Edition Unlined Demi Bra which was equally as comfortable, though not quite as thick (think more mesh-like material). However, I do think I need to go back for it. The best piece of advice I can offer to anyone bra shopping is this...

If you find something that works, buy more than one!

How about you? Have you tried any of this new line by Victoria's Secret? Let me know!

THE SUNDAY EDIT #21

Davids Tea

Today I'm spending my only day off this weekend with a classic cartoon filled morning (Bob's Burgers anyone?), a trip to the mall, and a pot of home made sweet pea soup.

I've kind of been in a bit of an emotional funk lately as I'm sure many of you can relate (ahh to be a female) so I'm doing my best to take some time to myself and also trying my best to be a nice person in general...it's tougher than it sounds! 

To top it off, I've injured myself for the third time in the past week by way of cheese grater, and no I'm not trying to be funny. First I dropped it on my toe, splitting it open, then my finger got stuck in the slicing bit and today I tore off a huge chunk of my thumb nail. I've come to the conclusion that I either need to stay away from the thing or just quit cheese all together! Regardless, those things need to come with a warning...or a training video or something.

However, I am currently enjoying a freshly brewed cup of some delicious new tea. A co-worker of mine got me hooked on Queen of Tarts by Davids Tea which is a tangy citrus blend of hibiscus and guayusa. For those of you who don't drink tea in the morning I think this would be a great option for you as the strong citrus blend is super refreshing. It would also make a fantastic iced tea (which I definitely plan on making happen this week).

So, cheers to brighter days! Let's hope we all have a great week ahead ;)

Do you have any favourites from Davids Tea?

FOTD FT. NARS HEAT WAVE

NARS Heat Wave

So, breaking news, I now own NARS Heat Wave! I'm sorry, maybe only beauty bloggers will appreciate this, but I don't even care. This colour is magic. After seeing it on countless celebs (Kate Bosworth, Jessica Alba, Megan Fox, etc.), Heat Wave has been on my wish list for ages! I've always been a fan of a good red lip whether it be orange hued, pink toned, or a true red. There's just something about it that's so classic...probably because it is. Hah.

Products Used:

Clinique City Block SPF 40
Origins Plantscription Concealer in Light
MAC Powdered Blush in Fleur Power
NARS Bronzer in Laguna
Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette
Make Up For Ever Aqua Smokey Extravagant Mascara
Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara
Clinique Superfine Brow Pencil in Soft Brown
Anastasia Clear Brow Gel
NARS Semi Matte Lipstick in Heat Wave

I'll be putting together a review on this lipstick in the next couple of weeks or so, but while you're waiting I would love it if you would share your favourite "reds" with me! Drugstore, high-end, I wanna hear them all!
