Life Lately: Food, Beauty and Health

Hello! Sorry for the short hiatus, I have been swamped with midterms that blogging has been one of my last priorities these days. I have two midterms before my reading break and I’m bummed that I won’t be going anywhere during my reading break. Guess I’ll just reminisce about my time in Vegas last year. Here are bits of my past week:

{Dine Out Vancouver @ Baru Latino}

I went to my second (and last) Dine Out on Sunday at Baru Latino. I specifically chose Baru Latino for their paella (bottom left picture). Overall, my meal was delicious and the flan was heavenly, although M thought it was too sweet.

I ordered some skin care products from Sephora a few weeks ago when they were doing a 2x the points event. The products above are mostly to target my acne and oily skin. I’ve tried a multitude of products for my oily skin, but nothing has really worked so far. I read good reviews about the Murad oil control mattifier, so I am anxious to see how it will work for me!

Back to School Haul

Fall is my favourite season, which is why I usually spend the most money on fall clothing. With all the sales going on right now, it’s too enticing for me to pass up… lol. So here are some of my back to school purchases, mainly from the Aritzia warehouse sale.

From the Aritzia warehouse sale:

{T. Babaton Sweater. Original price $85, got it for $39.99}

{T. Babaton silk blouse. Original price $110, on sale for $39.99}

{Wilfred shirt. Original $60, on sale for $24.99}

{Wilfred wrap dress. Original $85, on sale for $29.99}

{J Brand twill pants. Original $220, on sale for $74.99. I love the fit so I bought 2 pairs}

I was pretty happy with my purchases at the warehouse sale. This year was definitely better than last years in terms of location and selection. Original price for all the items I purchased is $780, I paid $284.94 before taxes, making it a savings of $495.06!

States Purchases

Here are the things I purchased last Thursday after my trip down the border. I went to Lynwood Washington to go Nordstrom Rack, Alderwood Mall and Target. These 3 are my favourite places to go when my family makes a trip down there.

I mostly bought accesories and makeup, didn’t end up with too many clothes like I usually do. I apologize for the bad lighting in the photos, like I said before my house has horrible lighting and I’m not that good with the camera. I’ll start off with the clothing:

A crochet kimono sweater from Urban Outfitters. This was on sale for $29.99 and they were having an additional 20% off so this ended up to be $22 something. I plan on wearing this in the summer with a dress.

A Lush Peter Pan collar shirt with lace back (19.99) from Nordstrom Racks
