January 12, 2013– Must Shop: Joe Fresh

I really hope you all have heard of Joe Fresh by now….if not thank goodness you have me!  The Joe Fresh brand was launched in 2006.  It offers stylish and affordable clothing and accessories for men, women, and children. Joe Fresh products are available at over 300 different locations around Canada, including Real Canadian Superstore locations and 12 Joe Fresh stores.  In 2011, the brand entered in to the US market with 6 stores in New York, New Jersey and the Long Island area.  Fashion industry veteran Joseph Mimran is the creative force behind this brand as it’s Creative Director.


Joe Fresh offers beauty products as well, and often offer beauty tutorials on it’s website and YouTube.  The Joe Fresh Brand Clothing offers those fashionistas on a budget a fashion outlet.  Their clothes rival those on the runway at a fraction of the price.  You often can’t tell the difference between Joe Fresh, Banana Republic, or Donna Karan.  All I have to say is thank you Joseph Mimran, thank goodness for Joe!

Mac Lipstick (Ladybug) $18.00 

Mac Ladybug Lipstick

This lipstick provides long lasting colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on any runway and simmers on the street! It’s what made M·A·C famous!  A favourite shade of mine! If you feel this colour is too bold for your skin tone, try “Crosswires”, or “On Hold”, two more shades of red that would work great with lighter skin tones. BUY IT

Under $50

Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment $28.00


I swear by this lip balm!!! Fresh has provided us with an antiaging lip treatment proven to repair, nourish, plump, and smooth wrinkles around the delicate lip area. It doesn’t include parabens, sulfates, synthetic Dyes, phthalates, GMOs
, or riclosan!  Its non sticky, it isn’t waxy and it doesn’t “gloop!” I know what you’re saying, $28.00 is a lot of money for lip balm, but this thing is seriously huge! It will last you a while I promise you that! BUY IT

Free People Printed iPhone 4/4S Case (Exclusive FP Prints) $28.07


For all those tech-junkie fashionistas out there this is the gift for you! A hybrid of fashion and technology come together with the latest iPhone cases from Free People!  With many exclusive colours only offered by this label, Free People now not only dresses you but dresses your phone! My fav prints include starlight (featured here), feathers, and orange geo…but who am I kidding if I could have them all I would! BUY IT

Nars Blush (Orgasm- peachy pink with shimmer) $32.00


Recommended by one of my girlfriends Carly (yes we have the same name), this pressed powder is soft and sheer.  It looks great on every skin tone, adding just a bit of colour! BUY ME

I know these are a bit on the pricey side for those of you like me on a budget but the original sets the benchmark for hunter footwear. These boots are handmade of natural rubber, lightweight, neat fitting, and above so very comfortable. These boots are functional, great for those West Coast rain showers and East Coast snow (just add some Hunter Fleece Wellie socks for warmth $35.00), and yet still fashionable! Being worn by some of today’s it girls, these black boots are now the go to boots! BUY IT

Michael Kors MK3181 Watch (Rose Gold and Gray) $225.00


Again….I know on the higher side of the budget, but think of this as an investment!  The Michael Kors MK3181 watch in rose gold and gray is bling!  No need to accessorize anymore.  Put this baby on your wrist and you’re out the door.  Looks great with a casual outfit or dress it up!  Multi functional and stylish…seems to be the theme here hey? BUY IT
