Getting ready for an #IndigoWeekend

This post is not sponsored – but Indigo is easily one of my favourite places in Toronto.  Even just stepping in, hearing Jack Johnson singing about Banana Pancakes and smelling the Starbs ( because if you drink Starbucks you call it Starbs) you know whether you make your purchase here or online you are in for a fun experience.

Here are a few of my new favourites from Indigo:

Eye masks to me for the longest time seemed like something that was a novelty item or not necessary – but I have found the incredible difference when I use this for rest vs when I do not.  For one thing, it is insane how much I am tempted to rest with such a cute mask.  Also I do not have any interest to stay on my phone when I can block out the light. Here is the one I chose BONUS it’s on sale.

Another of my recent favourites is my new hobo style cross-body in black.  It is the perfect size to fit a book and a water bottle, or any essentials without looking and being too bulky.  I have a tendency for fitting as much as I can in my bags – this was just a perfect size for fitting a lot but staying chic. Sadly this bag is now sold out 😦 BUT they have many other cute accessories here.

Of course, Indigo is most known for the incredible amount of books they sell.  Having recently watched Blackfish on Netflix, I picked up “Beneath the Surface” – which is an incredible book about what happened at Seaworld from the one of the trainers himself, John Hargrove.  Having recently lost my dog has made me even more passionate about animals than I already was.  I was vegetarian and vegan for a while during high school and it didn’t work for me health-wise but if I could be vegan I definitely would.  Find it so critical to be a part of the lives of the animals in our world and understand their importance.

William Ashley Warehouse Sale 2016

For all of us who love a good shopping today was a lot of fun.  William Ashley invited me to check out the William Ashley Warehouse Sale before they open to the public.

Not only do they have some great home decor and dishes, but an amazing selection of bath accessories, toys, games and more.

Some of the fun finds I picked up include some Christmas Ornaments, Sunflower Lip Gloss, and a plaque with the phrase ” Wine Improves with Age.  The older I get the more I like it” which I find very cute and accurate.   You can never go wrong at the Sale, whether a Girls Day Out or some home supplies with your person, there is definitely something for everyone.

I was invited to the Sale from 10am to 2pm.  Little did I realize I would actually end up spending the entire time there !  And with a neat and easy to use map with a yellow road to follow, it makes the experience relaxing too.

I know for sure that I didn’t buy everything I fell for, so I will definitely be back again.  ashley3ashley2

The William Ashley Warehouse Sale  is open starting Tuesday October 25th.  They are closed on Mondays.  When you spend $300 or more you will receive a William Ashley Gift Card to be used at the store at Bay and Bloor.  A nice gift on some already ridiculously reduced merchandise.

Best always,

Melissa ♥
