Nothing’s More British Than Khakis And Rain

It was winter last week, I swear to you. Just as we were slowly coming around to the idea of snow once again, Mother Nature pulled off a grand heist and took it all away. Yesterday was in the double digits, and as I exclaimed to Daniela, there wasn’t even a negative sign in-front of that. Today will be much the same, and my gosh I don’t trust it.

We used the day to our advantage. Despite our somewhat compromised immune systems, we popped downtown for a little escape before winter comes again. The first stop was Shoppers Drug Mart for a bit of beauty-product hunting. I love them all, but hate them all at the very same time. I tried Marcelle’s new Ideal Skin Perfector, which gives your skin a matte look while with continued use promises to help the general appearance of your skin. Marcelle had a buy-one-get-one sale on their website, and for some reason I didn’t hit that checkout button. I hate spending money on skincare when I only see a difference for a few weeks.


Diet and lifestyle are incredibly important to the health and appearance of your skin, so I have been trying to reign in my sugar and dairy intake which does seem to help. Sadly…Starbucks exists and I cannot resist a tall peppermint mocha frappe. Luckily the barista accidentally made it iced, which meant the lovely lady at the till made me a venti…and let me keep the iced peppermint mocha. Maybe I’ll go back to Shoppers sometime this week.

After Starbucks was the grocery store, because we have this awful habit of having next-to-nothing in the refrigerator. Meal cards are an unfortunate benefit to college life.

This weather is also perfect of a black mac trench from ASOS and brown desert boots from Aldo. Sand-coloured chinos from ASOS (which really aren’t chinos, but more of a…cotton material? I just don’t buy they’re chinos) are also a necessity, because what looks more prim and proper than sand-coloured bottoms?

All of the leaves were tossed in the gutter already, and it was a very cozy yet sad sight to see. Fall is so beautiful, and even the most common-in-appearance homes looked wonderful in the drizzly-grey weather. I really should go back to all of the assignments due this week, but I think I’ll just sneak into the nicely stocked refrigerator instead. No sugar, I promise.
