Spring is in full swing, and the excitement of summer is just around the corner. Over the last few weeks, I’ve been testing out all sort of products for the new season. From the perfect sleep mask to my favourite new beauty brand, I’ve rounded up five of my favourite Spring things to share with you.
The Sleep Mask
Now that we’re having longer days, the sun is getting up much earlier. We live in a high rise apartment, and the sunlight streams in through our windows. This isn’t so bad during the week, but on the weekend when you want to sleep in, it’s way too bright. Enter, the perfect Sleep Mask. This soft and comfy sleep mask is made by The Sleep Shirt, a company specializing in sleepwear. The sleep mask has two elastic bands that makes it very comfortable to wear, and won’t be too tight while you sleep. The original Sleep Shirt design was based on a 19th century vintage chemise. The simple, yet classic design quickly gained a following and now has quite a few styles in beautiful fabrications.
Daniel Wellington – Classic Petite Collection
I’ve been loving silver jewelry lately, so I was really excited to receive a Daniel Wellington silver watch. The Classic Petite Collection just launched this month, and feature 6 bands to choose from. Since the bands are interchangeable, I can wear this face with the mesh silver band, or this classic black leather band. I have really small wrists, so the smaller face fits me really well. For 15% off your own DW watch, use my promo code stylecalling (until 30 June)
A few weeks ago, J.Crew sent me this super cute blouse in the mail. It was to celebrate #NationalStripesDay, a fun campaign created by J.Crew to promote wearing stripes. That’s definitely something I can get onboard with! This pink, striped blouse with a bell sleeves is so darling. I can’t wait to wear it, when the weather finally warms up!
Recently launched, Skye Footwear is a Vancouver based company that aims to create comfortable sneakers. Featuring a built-in deep gel heel cup for impact absorption and engineered to keep a natural bounce in your step for happy walking, hiking or running. These are perfect slip on sneakers for summer time. Mine are the white Rbutus style, and have become my go to weekend footwear.
Pixi by Petra
Pixi Makeup recently launched in Canada to rave reviews. The collection is already a massive hit in the US, so I was excited to try it for myself. Created by Petra Pixi, who has 20+ years experience as a makeup artist and product developer, Pixi aims to create a naturally radiant ‘just had a good night’s sleep’ look. My favourite product is the Glow Tonic that exfoliates and helps tone, firm and tighten your skin. How cool is the personalized bottle they sent me?! The whole line is incredibly reasonably priced and definitely worth keeping an eye out for.
