Going Going Gone?

I have a funny felling that Costa Blanca may be going out of business. The one on Queen street recently closed but I thought that might have just been due to the high cost of rent in that area. But as I sit in the food court at White Oaks Mall I see the CB store here is also going out of business. If you're a fan you better hit your nearest Costa Blanca today and get 50% off everything in the store before they disappear!

Joe Fresh Tote

Love my new tote bag from Joe Fresh. It's lined and has a nice size, zippered inner pocket. Also comes in orange/tan and red/burgundy. Was tempted to get the red one but feared it might bleed every time I wore a white top. Bonus - it was only $19. Great gift idea & at that price you could fill it with other Joe items (makeup, socks, pjs).

Halloween Your Hands

My love of nail decals is never ending. I'm awful at doing my nails but if I can throw on a decal or two they make my subpar job look semi-decent. Sally Hansen has a limited edition line of Halloween "polish strips" for your nails. Choose from fishnet, barbwire, ghosts, spider webs or skull and crossbones designs. I'm trying to decide between the spider webs - love the metallic background or the skull & crossbones. Though the more I look at them, the more I start to like the kooky looking ghosts. Very Pac-Manish.

Winners at Queen and Portland (just east of Bathurst) are having their grand opening today! It looks like a pretty good size store and will hopefully have a plus section as the King and Spadina location has gotten rid of theirs. Check out the cute cable knit hooded capelets and the lace patterned Anna Sui tights.

Just paid them a visit.
The Good: beautiful jewellery counter, lots of active wear, plenty of hooks in the dressing room, lots of dressing rooms, good purse selection.
The Bad: new building smell, small plus size section, music too loud.
The store is located on the third floor so let's hope they keep those escalators maintenanced.

The best part: Joe Fresh in the same building is having their grand opening October 13th.
