The Scream

The image of The Scream by Edvard Munch best describes the way I feel right now trying to find a bathing suit at the end of summer. IMPOSSIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stores only have the ugliest bathing suits left or bottoms with no matching tops. I shouldn't have waited this long.

Times must be tough when a dollar store decides to raise the price of items. It was announced this past week that Dollarama stores will be raising their prices starting February 2009. The prices are going to be $1.25, $1.50 and $2.00.

Bath & Body Works is finally here

Bath & Body Works opened in the Yorkdale Mall this week. I went to the store for the grand opening event on Thursday September 18, 2008. The first 200 people that showed up for the event between 6:00pm and 8:00pm received a gift card. I received a $10 gift card towards my purchases. The store was very crowded. It was quite difficult to move around. If I stayed any longer I would have spent too much money. The new store at the Fairview Mall will open November 2008.

Forever 21

Yesterday I went to the store Forever 21 for the first time. The store I went to is located at the intersection of Yonge and Dundas in Toronto. I think that you have to be under 21 to shop in the store. I spotted someone who looked older than 21 and she stuck out like a sore thumb. I must have really looked out of place. I was looking for a handbag to take to the gym. I carry a lot of stuff in my gym bag so I have to carry a second bag. I am picky about the bag that I take to the gym because of all of the germs in the changing room. This bag can really hold a lot. The bag was $27.80 CAD. The ring was also a great price at $4.80 CAD.

Bath & Body Works at Yorkdale

I am looking forward to the opening of Bath & Body Works in Toronto. I could not go to New York without stocking up on soap, body wash and body lotion. We have missed out for so long in Canada. I will be like a kid in a candy store. 

On Thursday September 18, 2008, there will be a Bath & Body Works shopping event at Yorkdale. To celebrate the grand opening of the first-ever Canadian location, Bath & Body Works and LouLou are inviting you to meet experts who specialize in home fragrance and aromatherapy. Pamper yourself with a hand massage, create your own lip balm or receive a personalized sleep consultation. The first 200 people to present the invitation will receive a preloaded Bath & Body Works gift card with a value ranging from $10 to $100.

Time: 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

10 out of 10

It is that time of year again. The Toronto International Film Festival runs from September 4 to 13, 2008. For the last couple of years I have gotten a day pass. This year I have decided only to see 10 films. I would like to have more time to relax and not feel so rushed.

The following are the films that I will be seeing:
