Time for August Monthly Favourites! For what seems like forever, I have been lusting after the vintage apothecary vibe in the bathroom exemplified by dark glass jars and bottles. I even went so far as to consider ordering dark glass pump dispensers online and contemplating Aesop's Resurrection Aromatique Hand Wash. Imagine my delight when I spied two bottles of hand soap at my local Winners in the requisite dark brown glass.
One was a lavender scent and the other, mango agave. The lavender is incredibly heady and the mango, sweetly fruity. I love the fact that they come in refillable glass bottles. The price was a very easy on the wallet $6.99 for 473 ml. Winners is like the Canadian version of Marshalls. You never know what you'll find on the shelves. I have never heard of Aroma Aria before and have never seen it anywhere else so I have no idea if I'll find it again at Winners. They are made in the U.S. so, if you are in the States, perhaps you will have an easier time locating it.
Next up is my Kate Spade tote. I received it as a gift a couple of years ago (you can find similar versions here and here) but have used it a mere handful of times since.
Then it struck me that Summer was waning and I really should bring it out from the depths of my closet and just enjoy it. The thing about having a capsule wardrobe is that it teaches me to appreciate what I have. What is the point of having lovely things if they aren't being used and appreciated? The tote is a cream colour so, theoretically, I could use it past Labour Day but I think that light coloured accessories just come into their own during the strong light of the Summer months.
And that is it for August! Short and sweet as my car began coughing and sputtering in the most doleful manner and, faced with an unexpectedly large hit to my wallet, I had to curtail any errant shopping impulses.
Let me know how your Summer is going!
