Whether you know me in person or not, it’s probably obvious that I love shopping. I frequently visit local malls and boutiques, but I also spend a lot of time online shopping. While I obviously enjoy shopping for myself, I also like to help other people shop. It’s probably why I loved (and miss) working in retail so much! It makes me so happy when someone tells me they purchased something that I’ve recommended on my blog or Instagram.
In the past, I used to avoid online shopping, but over the years, I’ve gotten a lot better at it. I attribute that to a combination of better selection on online retailers…and better hunting skills. I have a knack for finding the best of the best online. Why? Well – I spend a lot of time doing my research. You’re welcome 😉
This is why I’m thrilled to announce my new partnership with Amazon.ca! Yes, the Amazon!!! For the rest of 2017, I’m officially part of the Amazon Associates Program. What does that mean? Essentially, I’ll be curating some of my favourite picks from Amazon.ca and sharing them with you.
A lot of people think Amazon is just a place to shop for electronics, books, and deals on photography equipment. Of course, it’s great for all of those things (that’s where I buy most of my photography equipment), but if that’s all you’re shopping for on Amazon, you’re missing out! They offer a huge selection of women’s clothing, accessories, luxury beauty products, shoes, handbags and so much more. It’s endless, really.
With the Victoria Day long weekend coming up (yay!!), I thought a fun way to kick off my partnership with the Amazon Associates Program would be to share some of my long weekend essentials. I’m not planning to go out of town, but I am hoping to make it to one of the local fireworks displays.
Now, onto what to wear (and bring) to the show:
1. Cable Knit Cardigan | 2. 7 For All Mankind Skinny Jeans | 3. Kate Spade Wallet | 4. Picnic Blanket | 5.Hershel Supply Co. Backpack | 6. Hershey’s Cookies and Cream Trail Mix | 7. Knit Beanie with Pom Pom | 8. S’well Stainless Steel Water Bottle in Marble | 9. Cozy Blanket Scarf | 10. 5000mAh Portable Phone Charger and Amazon Basics Apple Certified Lightning to USB Cable | 11. Soludos Espadrille Sandals | 12. Adidas Women’s Original Superstar Sneakers | 13. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream
What To Wear (and Bring) To Long Weekend Fireworks:
A Cute, Cozy Outfit – Even when the days are hot, at this time of year, it can get cold at night. Make sure to bring a sweater and a blanket scarf, so you can bundle up when it gets cold. It’s also important to wear comfortable shoes, because the odds are, you’ll have to park quite far from the fireworks. I love my Soludos, but as far as comfort is concerned, Adidas Superstars definitely win.
Snacks – This is a given, right? You can’t spend a night outside without having something to munch on. FYI – Amazon also sells food and their selection of snacks is insane.
Picnic Blanket – These are the best! If you buy one thing from Amazon today, make it a picnic blanket! The top of the blanket is soft for sitting on, but the bottom has a protective layer to keep you dry from the wet grass. I wouldn’t have survived all of my concerts with lawn seats if not for these blankets.
Phone Charger – If your phone dies partway through the night, how else with you Insta Story the fireworks?
A Bag To Pack Everything In – Since you’ll have so much stuff to carry, it’s only logical that you need a bag. I love my Hershel Supply Co. Backpack and bring it with me anytime I need something more substantial than a purse.
Thank you to Amazon.ca for partnering with me on this post. I’m so excited to share more with you soon!
