Have you ever shopped at Cottiny? It is THE epitome of cuteness~

I decided to make a purchase at this jewellery store for my mom’s birthday, which is on Canada’s Day!

Unfortunately, I couldn’t take pictures in this small store/boutique, but what I bought was more classic and simple so that my mom can wear it to work. If you like super cute necklaces and earrings, check it out! From animals, to the word love, they have really adorable designs worth looking at among their super cute displays!

This necklace was $35.00, it is real silver. (The pricing is actually pretty good considering how nice their stuff looks and that it’s real silver too) I’m always very conscious of what I spend, but when it comes to my mom, that kinda goes out the window. It’s the last thing I worry about because it’s for her~

This gift box setup was only an additional $2.00. Not bad, because it’s a great necklace holder! I love presenting a gift and making it look good.

I love a cute boutique, it feels so unique. I got their free membership, I mean 5% can make a difference! I’m hoping one day I can buy something for myself from there~

Hopefully my mom likes this gift!

So I did it! I made my very first purchase by myself, with my own money online! It’s ridiculous how excited I was! I was lucky it came literally within a few days.

Even though my blazer ($18.90) is too big, I should have gotten a small, I’m still really glad that I bought it. Why you may ask. It’s because I made a bold buy. I’ve been trying to find that perfect blazer for a long time! This feels great and I now know that I can buy a bold colour because I love it! (I love the style, fit, material, AND colour)

  • ALWAYS HAVE A BACK UP PLAN! IF they can’t return my blazer, I’m willing to see if it can be tailored!
  • YOU ARE ALWAYS AT A RISK. A risk of not trying something on before actually paying for it!
  • MAKE SURE TO KNOW THE RETURN AND EXCHANGE POLICY BEFOREHAND!
  • PICK DAYS TO SHOP ONLINE WHEN THE SHIPPING IS FREE!

If there’s one thing I’ve decided, it’s that I’ll stick more to buying accessories rather than clothes when I shop online in august on yesstyle!

I DO love my earrings! Super long and chic! They actually go past my collarbone! ($7.80)

I’ve never done online shopping before, but when I realized I would see things in my emails, but certain things you can only find online. I’m not a fan of buying things online only because:

  • I’ve never done it
  • You can end up with damaged items
  • You can get the wrong order
  • You have to follow the sizing properly
  • You don’t get to try it on first before paying
However, I did make it a personal goal to try online shopping once by the end of the summer! =)

Rings. Rings. Rings. This is my personal favored accessory. People who hang with me always know I will have rings bearing my very long fingers! Every girl should have some diamonds, and if they come in the form of really funky rings, then I’ll ALL for~

PS. No, I did NOT mean wedding rings!

I figured I would show you guys some of my rings, as an excuse to also use my soft box kit. Not all of them,  but my top set that I wear.

This is what I call my “evolution” set. I got the one on the right (Store-Aldo) from my little brother (he buys me LOTS of rings! And has great taste too.) I then got the bigger one on the left (Store- Ardene) from my trio a few months ago~

A few years ago my cousin was giving me a BUNCH of stuff she didn’t want (clothes, bags, accessories) and this was one of them! Not only is it colored a beautiful emerald green, but it also … SPINS! I”m not kidding, it really does! Pretty cool right? The spinning feature can distract me sometimes … or a lot …

This ring was also a gift from my trio that I really enjoy wearing, which is also from Ardene. I really took a liking to big rings because it can make such a statement without trying.

Both rings are from Aldo’s Accessories that I got a few years ago. I’ve worn these so many time’s that the colour is actually starting to fade. The shapes of these are what caught my eye. They both have an almost floral-like print on them, giving them a subtle touch of femininity~

This is this year’s ring from my little brother, HOORAY! He really knows how to pick them, especially when I like unique looking rings. This one blew me away, not just because it fit me really well, but because of how it looks like wings curling together~

This is just a close-up of one of the rings. I really like the style because it’s almost like a painting with it being long and rectangular.

This is what I feel is my “Victorian-styled” ring. It is very big, but really comfy. I bought it because I felt the black center piece could go with a lot of my outfits because it’s such a neutral colour. I really like the intricate designs too!

I don’t know why, but every time I look at this ring I think of a Ferris wheel for some odd reason … but yeah. This actually curves outwards at both ends, so it’s almost barely on my finger.

I’M OBSESSED WITH THIS RING! The Forever21 ring for only $1.50! Ch’yeah! Me and my friend Fazal call it “the samurai sword”! Slash! I love these long styled rings, it’s a lot of fun to wear, even though it sometime’s pokes me … in the face.

These are all 3 separate bands, but it’s really nice to wear them stacked up. My mom gave these to me, and these were my first “silver rings”, so I treasure them a LOT! I felt so cool wearing these when I was going out, it got me into occasionally buying rings afterwards~

Despite the fact that I suck at cleaning my jewelry, I love wearing them regardless. What’s your go-to must-have accessory? =)
