Thrift Style Thursday – New Thrift Finds

Hello! I finally have a new outfit post!

Louise from Pauper to Princess came to visit and we did some major damage thrift shopping. I’ll share a complete haul later on, but for now I thought I would share my two favourite pieces.

A jean shirt from Dress Barn (Value Village $7.99) and a romper from Ardenes (Salvation Army $5.99). The purse is Fossil, previous Goodwill find for $4.99.


I have a hard time stepping out of my comfort zone when it comes to what I wear. I loved thrift shopping with Louise because she was completely open to any and every style and tried on so many unique pieces. I normally wouldn’t have went for this denim top because of the seemingly clashing prints but I’m glad I gave it a chance because I love it!!

I love both pieces and have already worn them out a few times since I got them last week! The romper is from Ardenes, so I presume its not of the best quality but it was brand new (still had all it’s tags and was marked as $35). There was just something about the shirt, I thought it was perfect for summer layering – it will be coming with me to Europe. It already has a little Canada pin!


We found so much awesome stuff in all the thrift stores we explored, I look forward to sharing the rest of my finds. Don’t forget to check out the other thrifty ladies!

Thrifty Visitor

Although it is Thrift Style Thursday, I don’t have photos to share today :(…  but I am excited to share that Louise from Pauper to Princess will be staying with me for a few days (grabbing her from the airport tonight!) We are going to be doing some MAJOR thrift shopping (so stay tuned).

Louise is a fellow thrifty blogger that I initially connected with when I first started Spoolish, since then we’ve been following each other’s adventures (and were partners for a blogger swap) and now she is visiting Canada so I’ll be taking her to Niagara Falls and all the local thriftin’ grounds!

I feel so blessed to have been able to meet so many wonderful ladies through this blog and connect with like-minded people from all over the world! Just wanted to thank everyone for reading and connecting :) I will hopefully have some amazing finds to share soon, xo.

Oh, hello there.


It’s been too long friends! I’m back from my travels and plan on sharing a few stories from my trip but even that is taking me a while so I  thought I’d reach out now (before I procrastinate even longer!).

… I wanted to know what you guys would be interested in reading about? Travel? Thrift shopping? DIYS? Personal details about my life that you shouldn’t care about but you do because we’re all morbidly curious creatures?!

PLEASE let me know :D

I guess I should include something else, here are three photos of me from my trip:




Thanks for sticking around guys, it’s been a while.

Ometepe Island

DSC_0029We stayed on Ometepe Island for four days. What was supposed to only be a short stay kept getting extended as we seemed to be too lazy to pack our bags and journey on. To get to this island we took a chicken bus and a taxi that took us to the Ometepe ferry. This ferry was one of the most intense boat rides I had ever been on. SO rocky and wet. I get extreme motion sickness so I had to put on the seabands and pop some Gravol. The Gravol was necessary but it just screwed up the rest of the day – couldn’t be bothered to do anything other than nap. Our first day on the island was a bit of a write off as we were exhausted and we mostly napped. We walked around a bit, had dinner and hung out at the hostel for the rest of the night.

The next day, we were determined to go see something. We took a bus without much planning and the destination we had in mind was unattainable without an expensive taxi. We just explored the town of Altogracia and bussed back to where we were staying in Mayogalpa. We came back and had dinner in a hotel restaurant where we got our information for the volcano hike we had planned (more on that one later).


The sunsets in Mayogalpa were breathtaking. There were many people sitting around, drinking beers and admiring the views.

All in all, Ometepe Island was a very chill and beautiful place with many friendly faces. The most memorable aspect of the trip was our climb up Volcan Maderas…I will be sharing the story tomorrow.
