Oh so Pretty

I’m a massive perfume fan, but at this point I have so many scents that it can be pretty hard to impress me. I have sniffed so many beautiful bottles containing so many strange and exciting scents, and every time I’m at a department store I can’t help but feel a little bit overwhelmed by all the millions of choices.

That being said, when I first received my samples from Commodity, I was totally 100% blown away.

Commodity Goods is a U.S. based company with a brilliant concept for perfume shopping. All of their gorgeous scents are lovingly blended in France, then shipped to California to be bottled by hand. They use only the highest quality ingredients and offer intriguing fragrances like moss, gold, and book. But that’s not that makes Commodity special.

Commodity offers something called a “fitting kit”, which is essentially a $9 pack of tester vials from each scent collection (for men and for women). The tiny bottles are shipped right to your house to try on, and when you decide on a favourite, you can knock that $9 off of your full size bottle purchase! It’s so brilliant that you’ll wonder how you ever bought perfume any other way.

Dear Diary

Okay, so Barbie is having a bit of a moment right now, and as a devoted Barbie girl, I couldn’t be more excited to be living in this Barbie world.

With my love of the world’s favourite doll in mind, you can probably imagine how ecstatic I got when Paige invited me to accompany her on a buying trip to see Wildfox’s resort collection a few months ago and the entire line ended up being Barbie themed. Everything from the “Barbie Dream House” lookbook to the “I Love Ken” sweaters and “Barbie” logo tees are so perfect, and there’s even a special magic twist to this clothing line that I can’t quite reveal yet (let’s just say it’s awfully sweet!)

While I (we?) eagerly wait for the collection to hit Bicyclette in January (sad face) so I can buy every single thing, here’s a little sneak peak at the perfectly pink look book from MTV!

You lovelies may not know this, but I recently started my own little Society6 shop! Filled with confetti, sprinkles and mint seashells, you can order just about anything you desire from Society6. This awesome company has helped me turn all my pastel dreams into pillows, shower curtains, clocks, and more, and I couldn’t be more excited about it!

I’ve already ordered a few items for myself and so far I’m really impressed by the quality (especially the pillows!), but I’m going to order some new products in the near future too to “test” out. It’s just quality control, right? Stay tuned for photos!
