DIYs to Try this Weekend


The start of the weekend not only promises fun and relaxation, but a time to get crafty ideas and creative. And although I should be completing my homework or catching up readings I often look forward to the weekends to try out some cool and easy DIY projects that I pinned to my Pinterest page the week before. This weekend's projects come from one of my favourite DIY blog that enhances my style while keeping me under budget; it's A PAIR AND A SPARE. A dress. A set of earrings. A bag. Basically a whole outfit!

Are you feeling inspired by any of these?  I always love knowing what you like to see, so tell me!

SAVE $$$ While Shopping

I have been using Ebates for the past three years. Its a FREE website that gives you cash back for purchases you would already be making online. I've made hundreds of dollars in cash back on purchases (especially on back to school purchases) and it is a must have if you shop online! Sign up for FREE here:

My favs to shop through Ebates are The Shopping Channel, Hudson's Bay, Indigo-Chapters (for books!) and works with over 750 stores that ship to Canada including,, eBay, Sears, Old Navy, Forever21 and Groupon.

Even though you don’t always get a high percentage back (its usually 1.5% to 4%), a few dollars here and there can really add up over time.  Also when you look up the store on Ebates, they show you all the active coupon codes available at that store. You can combine the coupon codes with cash back for extra savings!


Back to School in Style

Even though I always enjoy the long summers, as August rolls around, I tend to get a little antsy for school to start back up. There are a few telltale signs that classes were right around the corner. Like the Staples commercial that declares 'back to school' to be the "most wonderful time of the year" or the CNE opening up as August ends. Not to mention the endless school supply list. But my favourite part of the '#BTS season has to be the fashion deals and inspiration that has me eager to put together outfits for the first week. This year I'm taking inspiration from a very stylist celeb
