Nothing lasts forever but this is getting good now…

Here at B@K’s I talk a lot about beauty and fashion, and although I said that I want to scale back my spending for 2016, that doesn’t mean I won’t be spending money at all.  So I thought I would share some of the items both fashion and beauty in 2016.


Fresh Rose Face Mask – I got a sample of this a while back and I had no expectations when I put it on.  I was very pleasantly surprised.  I have been eyeing full size for a few months now, but I always seem to buy something else instead.  This is going on my next order.

Fresh Black Tea Firming Overnight Mask – It’s no surprise I am a Fresh fan, I have been ever since I tried Seaberry Oil!  I like the regular Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask, but I wish I could use it over night, I think this is just what I need, it’s the same price (steep) but if I only use it once or twice a week it will last a while.

Guerlain Meteorites Illuminating Powder Pearls – This was on my birthday wishlist last year and I am sad I didn’t pick them up during the November VIB Rouge sale.  I digress… I hope to pick them up at some point this year, I hear nothing but god things about them, and I do have a thing for face powders.

Verb Style with Verb set – I have been seeing this brand everywhere lately.  I’m a sucker for a good sea salt spray, but some of them can be expensive (ah em, Bumble and Bumble), and they are not all created equally.  I’m willing to give it ago, and see what happens, oh and did I mention full size products are $14.00?  Super steal!

Like I mentioned I’m finally happy with my beauty routine and once I start using up my stash I will then start to place more orders.  I’m also going to keep my eye out for better deals and GWP, I’m no longer obsessed with making Rouge at Sephora.


Lilly Pulitzer sun dress – I have been wanting one for a while now, but I have yet to purchase one (No, my Lilly x Target does not count).  I’m not really familiar with their sizing and I don’t want to order one online and it not fitting well, or at all.  And I found a few vintage shops in the area, but they sell vintage Lilly, and the few I’ve tried did not fit right.  With that being said I will add a Lilly this year, I just hope I can get a good deal.  This dress is my favourite that is available now.

Valentino Rockstud – I have been eyeing these shoes since they came out.  They are the perfect mix of class and sass, which is just what I’m all about!  They are expensive, but I know they would just be darling in my collection.  I would want to find them discounted of course, I can’t find myself spending full price on these bad boys.

Tory Burch York – I haven’t gotten a new bag in a really long time.  My current bag is no longer cutting it.  I need something bigger so that I have more room for more of my I gotta have it, can’t live with out it crap.  I think this bag fits the bill.  It’s huge, and it has a lot of interior pockets.  I’m also really loving this French grey colour.

Day dress – I love day dresses, they can be dressed up for work, or down for play.  Something like this Eliza J at Nordies is perfect for S/S.

The same goes for fashion, I have a lot of clothes, I’m not going to spend a lot of money on more clothes that I won’t wear half of.  I’m looking forward to styling what I have in new, fun, and different ways to last me through the next couple of years.  I want to buy less and better quality.  I don’t need to absorb all of the fast fashion.  I don’t need every colour sweater.  I can do a lot with what I have.  I’m also going to continue scoping the sales.  Finding a good deal on quality is key for me in 2016.  What are some of your 2016 wishlist items?  And on that note, it’s time to end!

All for now,
