Buy a t-shirt, help a kid!

I love it when a graphic t-shirt does not only look great but at the same time, it's doing a good deed. All you guys should definitely go to your nearest Bluenotes store and pick up this very special t-shirt. I, who loves graphic t-shirts, of course got one myself : )

Bluenotes' have partnered with Simple Plan to support Kids Help Phone this Holiday season. When you buy a t-shirt, you will help a kid! It comes in a guy and girl style - it's only $10! And get this, ALL the proceeds will be donated to Kids Help Phone!! Very cool!!

This exclusive graphic t-shirt has been co-designed with Simple Plan and is only available through Bluenotes. Great job Simple Plan - very cool design, it looks great!

You can also purchase this t-shirt online. While you're there, you can also enter for a chance to win a pair of tickets to see Simple Plan live!! Btw, I also love their latest single, Jet Lag ft. Natasha Bedingfield. Check out the video below - it's the Toronto International Airport!

For the guys.

For the girls.

My Versace for H&M Shopping Experience

Not sure if anyone else went to the Versace for H&M today but I was there! Yeah, I was one of those 'crazy fashion people', but I don't think I am 'that crazy' like some who set up tents and waited over night.

I went to the Yorkdale location. I was there around 6:30 am (the store opens at 8 am). For some reason, we had to wait outside the mall. I was told that there was about 150 people inside lining up already. Good thing it wasn't too cold and that it was only for about 20 mins, we then got to go in and joined the line up. It was pretty organized, so that was a good thing.

In the line, we were then given wrist band (only if you were shopping the women's collection) with our shopping time slot along with a shopping instruction. Even though I wasn't shopping the women's collection, I still had to get one.

Since I was only shopping the men's collection, I got myself into the store at around 8:15am. It was a bit hectic, but lots of security all around to keep things under control - you know how us, crazy shoppers can get - lol. Unlike last year, during the Lavin collection, posters were knocked down and people were undressing the mannequins.

Overall, I was happy with my Versace shopping experience : ) Got most of the stuff that I wanted plus more! Good thing there's a 14 days return policy, since I'm thinking of bringing back some of those 'impluse/changed my mind' buys.

For those whose interesting in owning some Versace, let me know asap. The items I will be returning are: t-shirt (Small), pair of black tailored trouser (waist 32R), and a pair of black leather shoes (size 9)

Here are some pics of my day and purchases...

Waiting in line....

Shopping instructions - it's serious stuff : )
Wrist band: note the Greek pattern.

Got the scarf with the Greek pattern - a Cashmere blend : )

Check out this high-top leather shoes!

I love the detailing - crocodile print pattern inside!

Versace For H&M - Men's Collection

Versace for H&M will be available this Saturday, November 19th.  FYI- only 2 locations in Toronto, The Eaton Centre and Yorkdale. This latest designer collaboration is getting lots of attention - well, it's Versace!

The collection is inspired by classic Versace prints and detailing. Each pieces will feature one of Versace's signature touches, including gold studs, extravagant pattern, optical prints, and Versace's classical Greek pattern.

You can check out the whole collection here .

Eventhough I do find some of the men's collection a little too 'out there' for my style/taste, for example the pink suit?! However, I'm still excited about the collection : ) Who doesn't want to own a piece of Versace in their closet?

Here are some of the items that will be on my list ..... I'm more into the accessories and t-shirts department.

Wish me luck (it's going to be crazy). Come check back, and I will let you know what items I was able to get.

This will be the first item I will grab. I like the optical print.

H&M Men's 2012 Spring Looks

Check out what H&M have in store for the spring 2012 men's collection. The looks are very casual and cool with some bright colours mixed into it. The looks are all about sporty/casual meets business!

Looking forward to checking these items out when they hit the stores. Here are some spring looks - what's your favourite piece?

I like this look! Especially the bright yellows as the accent colours.

I like the bag! : )

Here's the 'business meets casual" look: suit with a pair of shorts. 

Interesting looking tank top and print on the pants.

Looks like a lot of orange this spring....

I like the shoes!

Little Girl sings Nicki's "Super Bass"

Not sure if you guys seen or heard about this - but I think it might be going viral very soon. I first saw it last week on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, which btw, the little girl will be on the show sometime this week.

I already liked Nicki Minaj's 'Super Bass' song, but after seeing it sung by this little one, I think I like it even more!

Her name is Sophia Grace,  who's 8 years old. Check it out - she's too cute!!
