November is usually the month of shopping events all over the city, which means early Christmas present shopping (well, this time around it was mostly for me, but next time!).
This year the GAP on Robson Street teamed up with The Style Spy to host a shopping party in store. Sweet treats were provided by Frankie's Candy Bar and Jones Soda, there were line-ups to the Blo braid bar, and the place was pumping with great music by DJ Ana. I bought a lovely metallic sweater and some thick sweater tights and got a swag bag which was great because I've been using the Goody hair spin pins constantly at work (the skoah products and the Louis Vuitton wallet were, of course, not a part of the swag bag, but was all purchased on the same day and I was too lazy to take separate photos.)
Afterwards, I stopped by skoah's 10-Year Birthday Party held at their flagship store in Yaletown where they were offering a free facial at their new South Granville location for every $70 purchase of skoah products. Love the skoah products! Stoked up on the Hydradew and the AHA mask since those are my go-to items that I use all year round to keep my skin moisturized and calm. Also got a few travel size products with my purchase: a small sample of AHA mask and a body lotion.These will be great for when I'm travelling, since my skin tends get irritated due to the change in environment (the recycled air in the plane, hard/soft water in the hotel and the air wreck havoc on my skin when I'm travelling).
