August Favourites: Skin Care, new favourite Bag & the perfect high heels!

Hello September! I am honestly so very pumped for autumn, it is kind of crazy. The only thing that is bringing me down is, that here in Calgary, Canada where I currently live, we have about 2 weeks of that gorgeous fall time with colorful trees and then we go straight to winter and snow. And that is a big “No! No!” for this gal! But I guess I can complain and worry about that when the time comes (Repeat after me… we are going to be OK!). Currently, we are still blessed with warm summer days and over 25 degrees, so Mama is still in summer mode :)

But onto today’s actual topic: August Favourites. I already uploaded a favourites video on my Youtube channel, which in case you don’t follow it, is “Oh Hey Vivienne” – but since I know that not all of you follow me on every single platform I use, I thought I talk about my favourites here on the blog as well. So here we go, Favourites Time!

// FAVOURITE DRESS: Blue & white patterned Off Shoulder Dress

If this Candian summer was one thing, then it was HOT, HOT, HOT. Yes, you are reading this right. Canada can actually be hot and if you ask me, this summer tried to make up for the perma-frost, we all have to endure in the winter. I find it quite difficult to dress well when it is super hot because every extra layer of fabric feels overwhelmingly tight and just makes you sweat. This airy dress with a side slit was perfect for those really hot summer days and still looked extremely put together!

// FAVOURITE PEELING: PIXI Resurfacing Concentrate “Peel & Polish” 

Like I have mentioned before, my skin tends to get congested and very textured when it is hot and I am in the sun and this peeling helps enormously with that. It gives you glowing, baby bum smooth skin, without being too abrasive. It is enzyme based and super gentle – I absolutely LOVE IT & highly recommend it!

// FAVOURITE BAG: MANGO Vintage inspired gold & black Coffer Bag

Like I have mentioned before, my skin tends to get congested and very textured when it is hot and I am in the sun and this peeling helps enormously with that. It gives you glowing, baby bum smooth skin, without being too abrasive. It is enzyme based and super gentle – I absolutely LOVE IT & highly recommend it!

// FAVOURITE SKINCARE: WELEDA Evening Primrose Serum

Another skin care favourite over the past hot summer month was this Evening Primrose Serum from my favourite organic skin care company WELEDA. After being in the sun a lot, this serum gave my skin just the right amount of hydration and pampering it needed. The next morning my skin always feels a lot plumper!

 

// FAVOURITE HIGH HEELS: MANGO Alegra Heels with clear cutouts

If I tell you that I have been looking for high heels with clear parts for about 3 years, will you think I am a mad lady?! Ok, I guess I deserve that. I had such a crystal clear picture in my mind of what kind of high heels I wanted and I seemed almost magical, that this season I stumbled upon them on mango.com while shopping online. I have quite complicated feet when it comes to high heels, which is why I need to select them carefully. 13 years of dancing ballet didn’t do them good, I guess – so whenever a shoe has too high of a heel, I get such bad pain that my toes actually fall asleep, because I basically walk on a nerve.
These heels from Mango however, have the perfect height to still look elegant, yet they are quite comfortable for a high heel like that. They give such an elegant form to your foot and I just absolutely love them – shocker, I know :)

 

// FAVOURITE OFFICE BAG: MANGO Black Office Tote

Another find after a long quest if you will. I have been looking for a bag that is elegant, office appropriate and fits my 13″ MacBook Pro, when I am on the go. This shopper or tote does just that: it looks great, doesn’t cost a fortune and fits my beloved laptop. It has a little zip up divider in the middle, so you can effectively use 3 compartments in the bag. I absolutely love it and think it’s great for someone who is looking for a business badass work bag, that still looks elegant.
