Fossil sunglasses

Over our lunch break Julie and I tried on some sunglasses at Fossil in our local mall. I’m iffy on these shades that I picked out to buy. They’re the Berkley Oversized Aviators and they’re only $60. I mean, I’ve tried on sunglasses that were well over a hundred bucks) and these babies are made of metal, not plastic. So it’s a pretty good price, don’t you think? Fossil-Sunglasses

I haven’t bought them yet since they don’t quite fit as well as my… ahem… five dollar sunglasses. I know I know.  But I have a really difficult time finding sunglasses for my face shape. A lot of them look way too big, and I don’t even think that I have that small of a face. I usually call myself a melon-head because in photos I thought my head was ginormous!

Either way, they’re on my maybe-list right now. What do you guys think?

Julie also tried on a pair in Madison Oversized Butterly. They were way too expensive for what they were though. They’re plastic, and they were $80. Twenty bucks more than the metal aviators I was trying on. I told her not to buy them. They did look pretty swanky on her though.

Fossil doesn’t stop here

The Fossil love doesn’t stop here at just me. No siree. Just last week it was my bosses birthday. So I went with her and her daughter (who is also my co-worker) to the mall. We weren’t shopping for anything in particular, but we all came to the conclusion that we must stop into Fossil for a quick peek.

I kept eying my favorite Explorer flap clutch and spotted a spotted a different little coin purse or wallet. Loved the dotted leather one shown below. IMG-20130307-04285

My boss received a gum-ball charm for her birthday and wanted to add another one to her chain. Here she is picking out some charms. IMG-20130307-04286

And a purchase was made :) I got to carry the pretty bag. IMG-20130307-04288

My boss didn’t only get one charm. She bought two charms and a necklace to put it all on!  Talk about a Fossil fan here, right? IMG-20130307-04290

The box that it came in, was so cute.IMG-20130307-04291

While a few of us were in my office talking about my bosses new Fossil buys, the CEO comes in and wonders what we’re all talking about. My boss shows her the new purchases she made. Our CEO told us she’d be right back. Low and be hold the flippin’ woman comes back with HER purchase from Fossil that very same day! She ended up buying the Explorer Crossbody in this beauty teal color. She says she usually sticks to neutrals, but this was a nice color that she couldn’t pass up. Looks nice on her, right??IMG-20130307-04289

Are you eying anything at Fossil lately?

International Women’s Day at work

*Faces blurred out for those who I didn’t ask permission to be online.

Last Friday was International Women’s Day, and we certainly didn’t hold back celebrating it at work! The color of the year for International Women’s Day was purple, so if you see a theme here in this post, you now know why.

The three amigo’s all dressed in purple.three-amigos
Back in mid-February the trio of us ladie in the marketing department got together for our weekly meeting and decided it should be celebrated. Being that we do work with 34 people, 32 of them being female. So, throughout the last few weeks I tallied up some of my favorite companies I’ve worked with on my blog, and asked them for favors and donations for goodie bags we were putting together for staff! I was not expecting the incredible amount of loot I managed to accumulate!

We put together the packages earlier last week. So. Much. Stuff. Putting-pkgs-together


Everything was kept a secret until Friday morning. I drove into work a good hour or more before everyone arrived, so I could put a little surprise on everyone’s desks. The other two people in the marketing department did the same, at our other two offices. Everyone got a different package from Marcelle, being that we dived everything up by age group. I blurred out my work place for safety reasons.Loot-bag-on-desk

What was in each loot bag:loot-bag

I’m telling you, the most popular item which was in each bag, was the durex play vibrations. I kid you not, no one else cared what was in their loot bag once that was spotted. Giggles from the women, some even clipped it onto their belt buckles as a joke. It brought a lot of laughter to the office, let me tell you that much. I won’t be posting any of those photos for obvious reasons. I don’t want any crazy spammers attacking my comments section hah.

Gotta say though, the pop rock chocolate was my favourite thing, along with the Marcelle Cosmetics gift set.

We ordered lunch which was color coordinated. Pink paper plate, purple napkins, pink drinks and delicious pizza!pink-lunch

This pizza was so good.lunch

That wasn’t the end of the fun, those loot bags and lunch. Oh nuhnono. We held contests for a few things like Best Dressed, Best Dressed runner up, and some quizzes we had sent out earlier in the week.

Best Dressed, which was won by Laura. She ended up getting a Fossil wallet, which matches her Fossil Explorer tote quite well! Loved her outfit, everything was purple!Laura-wins-fossil-wallet

Runner up was Amy, in all purple who won a Rubbermaid glass food storage container set.Amy-best-dressed-runner

L won one of the two quizzes and got a gorgeous brushed metal light gold colored Fossil (Georgia?) watch.  She said it wasn’t anything she’d pick out for herself, but she absolutely loves it. I can’t wait to see her wear it.L-with-watch

The other prizes consisted of:

  • RUSK shampoo gift set + Yankee candle
  • Marcelle Cosmetics
  • Calvin Klein gift set
  • Roberto Cavalli gift set


I was seriously in awe at the generosity of the companies and what they donated. Absolutely incredible. I want to thank each and every company that donated to International Women’s Day. Everyone at work was so shocked, so happy, and exclaimed that it was better than Christmas!thank-you-2

Many many many thanks to making Friday a memorable one.thank-youThumbs up to, and thank you Marcelle Cosmetics, Fossil, Rubbermaid, Coty Canada, Kernels Popcorn, Orville Redenbacher, Durex, Veet, vitaminwater Zero, Cober Printing, Hershey’s, McDonalds, and VH Sauce.
