Brighton Crossbody, Style File Friday

If you are anything like me, or live anywhere like Winnipeg, you may be slightly hard on your handbags. My holy grail handbags are doing well, but my other bags get beat up after a while. With how cold Winnipeg is (-45°C in the winter, anyone??) and being on the go a lot of the time, I seem to go through purses faster than I would like. However, I recently received the perfect crossbody for me, and it’s more durable than I think most cars are these days. If you need something to stand up to unknown forces, read on!

Longchamp Le Pliage Review, Style File Friday

If you remember my Style To-Do List from April, you will recall that I had a Longchamp tote on it! Because I travel as much as I do, I knew that it would be solid investment (that I have been eyeing up for years). Everyone swears by them but I debated for the better part of two years if it would be worth it to invest that much in a simple canvas tote bag. I finally decided to go through it as that much time spent thinking on it has to mean something. Now that I’ve spent some time with it, I’m sharing my thoughts and review!

Style Saturday, 27 August 2016

Style Saturday is back!! While it’s only been two weeks without it, it feels nice to come back to it. Style Saturday was one of the first posts on my blog, and it’s the longest running “series” (if you will) here on An Historian About Town! This week is two of my new favourite pieces, so of course, they are… Kate Spade! These pieces are both from the outlet/surprise sale, but I have linked a similar piece from the regular Kate Spade site if the outlet piece wasn’t available.  Continue reading

DIY: Odour Removal

This past Style Saturday, I featured a Kate Spade purse I bought off of resell group! To elaborate a bit more on it, when M opened it up, a ton of glitter fell out. I’m not sure why the seller put glitter in it (I would like to think I was a good buyer, I paid immediately), but they did. And when I opened the envelope from M, the smell of Bath and Bodyworks body spray was overwhelming. Given that it is a leather purse, I was a little concerned. However, after much googling, I came up with a plan of attack!  Continue reading

Style Saturday: 9 April 2016

Once again, it’s a Kate Spade week here on Style Saturday 🙂 These are both green, one of my favourite colours! (Red and green don’t seem to appear in Kate Spade items as often as I would like, for some reason. Less pink, more red please!) Green seems very appropriate for the spring 🙂 I can’t find the exact items anymore but I have linked them in different colours! Continue reading

I’m really late to the Youtube party

So, as of late, I have discovered Youtube channels. Well, discover might not be the right word as I already knew they existed but I have found some that I very much enjoy watching.Quite often I will throw them on in the background now while I am cooking or cleaning! What have I been watching? Continue reading
