‘Twas the month before Christmas, when all through the mall

People are shopping, but no longer for Fall

Winter is coming, Holiday outfits are a must

Get ready for that party, its time to adjust.

‘Twas the week before Christmas, when all through the stores

All of the shoppers are happy, with their holiday scores

The best dressed at the party, it’s easy to be

Everything that you are looking for at Shop STC

For most of us; the holiday season means celebrations. This may mean catching up with great friends and family, work parties and New Year’s Eve, and everything else that comes with the holidays. During these times, we want to feel and look our best no matter where we are celebrating. Some of the seasons latest trends that I found at STC are; faux fur jackets, sequin statements, and wide leg pants.

I’m shopping at;

Aritzia

Zara

H&M

Sephora

Aldo

Steve Madden

The STC gift card can be used at a variety of STC stores including all of the above. The gift card also includes services, which is great so that you are able to get your hair or makeup done at the mall as well.  One of my favorite things about using my STC gift card is all of the great restaurants I am able to use it at. It’s so easy to Eat, Shop and Play at STC. There are no monthly service fees, no expiry date, and balances can be checked online.

Makeup:

I am loving simple makeup for my holiday’s parties this year. Some of the makeup essentials I use when getting glam for the season are found at STC Sephora. One of my go-to liquid eyeshadows is called Kitten by Stila Cosmetics. I use this shadow on its own and I also use it to blend with other colours. Another product that I wear constantly during the holidays is; Charlotte Tilbury, Matte Revolution Lipstick in Bond Girl.

Winter Fashion Must-Haves

Winter is near and this is where most of us fall off of the deep end when it comes to our personal sense of style. Winter is one of those seasons that can get you down in the dumps, and so many of us suffer. My solution to this is to dress well. When I wear an outfit that is put together, I feel motivated to keep on trend. It’s a good feeling to know that I can still dress comfortably, conveniently and creatively with a little help from my friends over at Scarborough Town Centre.
Scarborough Town Centre has been my go-to destination for shopping, even as my style has progressed over the years. Scarborough Town Centre has all of my favorite stores all under one roof, and is the ultimate “one stop shop”! My favorite stores for winter trends at STC are:

Playing with trends, tones, and textures are what makes Winter fashion so much fun for me. Come and take a look at what I am wearing this Winter 2018 and where you can find it at Scarborough Town Centre.

Gift Guide – Stylish Boyfriend

I know that getting a gift for your boyfriend can be overwhelming and stressful. Thankfully, my boyfriend never asks/wants anything specific and actually encourages me to just buy what I think will look good on him. I have grown to understand and know how to shop his style over the years; But, It wasn’t always that easy. Most of the time reading a man’s mind is basically impossible, So if you need some ideas; I have selected some of my faves.

Bench Canada Black Friday

Okay Everyone, Its that time of year again. The holidays. It doesn’t matter what holiday you celebrate, most likely you are broke by the end of all of your shopping. I always like to begin my shopping as soon as the leaves start to fall because I feel less stressed out. A lot of the time, I rely on Black-Friday to score some amazing deals. Although I do love Black Friday prices, sometimes it can be hard to spot the deals and know when your actually saving some serious bucks.

I tend to do my shopping online, mostly because I hate waiting in lines. Recently, I got two jackets from Bench Canada and I am totally obsessed with them both. I know what some are probably thinking…Why is Melina holiday shopping for herself? The truth is; Don’t we all? I got these items at regular price and as bitter as I may be that they are almost 70% off now, they are the greatest jackets ever. Bench Canada has some amazing sales on everything right now and I highly recommend you go check them out…NOW! The prices are all already reduced and then once you add them to your cart, they are even cheaper. The jackets I got are just over $50 now, it is amazing! You will find something for everyone on your holiday list.

Lounge Underwear

My favourite kind of deliveries are definitely underwear. Actually, make that comfortable underwear. Recently I tried out Lounge Underwear products, this is a company I had seen on Instagram and fell in love with. They are made in the UK and are super comfy and fit fairly well. They are made out of 100% Cotton and the quality of the product is very well-made. What I like most about the set is that the bra is elastic all the way around (no bra clasp). The shipping was really quick and the packaging was sleek and simple, which I also love. The idea is similar to Calvin Klein’s underwear sets,  but I think that  Lounge adds a more feminine look.

Thank you Lounge Underwear for the wonderful gift!
