St. John's Soap Works ~ Iceberg Soap

It's been a while since I've spoken about this local Newfoundland business. Probably because I never get the chance to go to the farmer's market. However, the last time I did go I picked up a lot of things and would you believe that I forgot and stumbled upon the last few missing items the other day? Well I did. Anyway, besides some bath bombs that I have mentioned briefly in another post, there was one new item that I had not tried yet. That item was the Iceberg handmade soap.

Now to explain things a little bit here, I'm a Newfoundlander as you all may know. I enjoy living by the sea, smelling the sea, and being next to the water is a must for me. If I have to move away from the water some day this will be the soap I will be stocking up on. It has such a lovely sea smell. Well maybe not exactly sea, but it reminds me of the sea so much. It is also colored like an iceberg, which is awesome.

It will leave your skin feeling super nice, with a nice hint of the sea-like smell. It is also made with quality natural local ingredients. Plus it's always good to support local small businesses.

Check out their Etsy page, they ship worldwide by the way!

I hope you all have a wonderful day & thank you so much for stopping by!

Excellent Finds at Envy

How much I love this store is an understatement. 
I have always enjoyed and envied walking around this store in the local mall. 
However, I rarely ever was able to actually afford clothing from there since all of my money was going towards my tuition. 
Thankfully, schools' over now and I can actually afford a wider range of items which includes Envy.
Another fact about Envy is that it is an Atlantic owned company and they bring in higher end clothes that can be a bit hard to come by to some places, like here.  

So, right now Envy is having a 50-75% off sale, which is fabulous! 
I took this as an opportunity to grab some transitional items for the upcoming fall season.
It was hard to choose some things since normally my size is always gone by the time sales roll around, but there were lots of items in a whole range of sizes! However, I'm a practical girl and a beautiful bubble gum pink dress had to be left behind. I will miss you bae. 

Anyway, the items I actually did bring home with me were great. 
The first was this navy blue lace halter shirt. 
I love this, it's so comfy and I enjoy the lace detailing and I think this will be great with one of my warm cardigans the fall and for right now in the summer it's still perfect. 

The next wonderful item is a beautiful trench coat by the brand ONLY. 
I have been looking for a good quality trench coat for so long and this was the last one in the Newfoundland location. Which of course means I just had to get it. 
It fits so well, compared to other long coats I own. I have a large bottom which makes longer coats a problem for me. However, this one is perfect. 
I can't wait to wear this in the early fall with a scarf and tall boots. 
I'm going to feel so London-ish (in my head anyway).
You can get a similar one here.

The last item I got was a simple basic beige v-neck shirt.
I enjoy this too and it's really going to become a staple that luckily is not black.
The best part about this shirt is that it was only $4 with tax! I know right? I should have bought a few more however we'll see what happens the weekend. I may be going back.

Also to note, they are starting to bring out their fall clothes and OMG they all of it looks awesome! I'm super excited for the Fall since that is my home girl. However, I will be enjoying the last of my summer as much as I can.

Have any of you shopped at Envy? What awesome deals have you found recently?

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!

The Career Oriented Clothing Wishlist

Now that I am finished school and looking into office jobs I am drifting less towards simple cardigans, t shirts, and jeans and more towards dress pants, business casual dresses and blazers. Which I mean, is a big step for me. I still don't find office attire suits my body type very well, but hey at least I'm considering it more and getting out of my comfort zone. I am also pinning more business outfits which you can check out over on my Pinterest account.

So, here is some of the clothes I've been hoping to pick up for myself at some point.

A belted Trench Coat. This one I seen into Dynamite and I really enjoy the look of it. I also enjoy the long blazers they have in right now which I think will look great in the fall and again in the spring. I'm more of a practical person when it comes to buying clothes, so I enjoy making sure that something I buy can be re-worn at some point in the year.

Cigarette trousers with the matching blazer. This is a look I love, but I could never pull off. I'm waiting for just the right combination and for my to get a little bit more fit and then hopefully some day I'll be ever to rock one of these. I just love the idea of the traditional "men's" attire becoming more feminine and it looks like such a classy look to me. The pants and blazer are both available on ASOS.

This dress I believe is perfect. It is a simple tie front dress and I think it would be perfect for going to day to night with just a simple change in footwear and makeup. This one is also available on ASOS.

The last item of this wishlist is the dressy jogger pant. I have no idea when these started being acceptable to wear, but they look so stylist and comfy that I just had to add these to my wishlist. The pair shown is from Dynamite.

Are there any office clothing trends you guys are loving? Let me know down in the comments.
