Shopping my closet II

A few months ago I took everything out of my closet, decluttered a few pieces that I hadn’t worn in ages, cleaned the shelf and washed the floor and then put everything back in. I love a good closet declutter! I hung everything on a hanger facing the wrong way so that, if in six months or so, there was anything remaining on a hanger facing the wrong way I’d know that piece can probably be sold or donated.

One of the pieces still on a hanger facing the wrong way was my chambray shirt. I bought it years ago thinking that I would wear it all the time. That hasn’t been the case. I decided to hit up Pinterest again to see if I could breathe some new life into this piece.

I decided to try shopping my closet to see if I could stretch some of my pieces farther. If you’re looking to streamline as well, you may want to try it. The idea is that you pull a favourite piece and try creating new outfits centered around it with pieces you already own.

All Night Long

Hello there! It seems like it’s been quite a while since we’ve seen a regular beauty related post here on Poutine and Prada!

I’ve mentioned this product once or twice on my Instagram account but it deserves a full post because it’s a game changer. A year or two ago I started noticing changes in my skin, in particular dry patches popping up on my face. It was something I’d never really had to deal with before. I tried a number of different night creams and sleep masks. I exfoliated. I even tried vaseline. Nothing really helped until I tried the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant Nighttime Miracle Moisturizer on a whim. It was a good whim.
