You guys know how much I LOVE my sunnies. I’ve amassed a huge collection over the years. The last 6 months I’ve upped my game and added some of my most stylish pairs EVER from polette Eyewear in France.

To celebrate summer and my partnership, polette has created a discount code FOR YOU!


Up until July 24th you will get a 30% discount off your order with the code: Coconut.

Code is valid on all online catalog except for the Sales category.

One of the greatest things about polette, (aside from the huge selection) is the prices. The company was started by a young entrepreneur with the goal of cutting out the middleman to offer great eyewear at affordable prices.  The team is young, artistic, and fun, which you can see shine through in their advertising.


The polette blog has style advice and cute road trip diaries. Here’s a couple great looks you can find on the site right now: 

  
A few of my fav pairs!

Here’s to a great week!

Summer is the perfect time to hit the road with your BFFs and ditch the concrete jungle. I love packing up the car and heading up north, to Montreal, or across the border. I’ve had some pretty epic road trips over the years!

Once a couple friends and I drove to Austin, Texas for SXSW and another time we drove and sang our way to Chicago.  Another one of my favs was a road trip to Montreal, so great in the summer!

There’s always a few things I make sure to stock up on before hitting the road and you can find them all at Shoppers Drug Mart. This is my second post in partnership with Shoppers, your one-stop spot before you hit the open road for a summer road trip. Did someone say snacks?

SUMMER ROAD TRIP ESSENTIALS:

Snacks are KEY to long (or short) road trips! I like having a mixture of salty and sweet. Let me tell you I could down a bag of Orville Redenbacher’s popcorn before leaving the driveway, it’s delicious! This PC dark chocolate will last you from start to finish, and if you don’t eat the whole thing on the car ride you can use this bitter-sweet bar in baking.

I prefer cruising with the windows down, feeling the wind in my hair vs. AC and windows up. However, this means you’re gonna get sweaty, electrolytes in Gatorade will keep you hydrated for the long ride. On that note, pack Lady Speed Stick in your purse, it won’t leave a residue and gives you 48-hour protection.

I also recommend packing some wipes that can be used for cleaning up messy hands, spills, or wiping off makeup. All that’s left to to do now is top up on gas, map your route, put on a playlist, and GO.

Take note, when you visit Shoppers between June 20th – July 17th and spend $10 or more using your Optimum card, you’ll receive a PIN card. Simply enter the PIN code at shoppersdrugmart.ca/summercontest for a chance to win 1 of 5 Prizes of $5,000. Now that’ll make a super sweet road trip! Car upgrade anyone?

Once you’ve stocked up on all the goods you’ll ready to hit the open road. Heading to the cottage? Check out my post on cottage essentials here. For more products and to find your closest SDM, visit shoppersdrugmart.ca/funinthesun. Safe travels!

If you’re new here or you’ve been around the blog for a while, you’ll be well aware just how much I love to cottage. I like spending weekends in Muskoka, on the dock, on the boat, tanning, floating, or cooking up a big feast for our guests. I’ve partnered with Shoppers Drug Mart to share a few of my cottage weekend essentials.

One of the neat things about this post, my next post about The Perfect Summer Road Trip and working with Shoppers Drug Mart is, I’m truly an expert in their products. I used to work at Shoppers in my hometown! I spent the better part of evenings and weekends behind the cosmetics counter during college.

Ok, now onto a few items to make..

THE PERFECT COTTAGE WEEKEND:

A long day in the sun can be really draining, it’s hard work being cottage fabulous! It’s really important to make sure you stay hydrated, drink lots of water, and ALWAYS wear sunscreen. Even if it’s not sunny! I like this Neutrogena product because it’s dry and not greasy. I keep this Dove antiperspirant in the shared bathroom because aside from smelling nice, the spray means any of our guests can have a little spritz should they need it. Wink, wink.

I recommend wearing this bug spray with deet in the daytime, not just at night. Those little mosquitos (aka mozzies!) have no limits. They’ll nip your ankles and arms no matter WHAT time of day. For some reason they love me and I always start the summer with heaps of bites (like right now, so itchy!). If you’re an allergy sufferer, take a caplet before you get to the cottage so your defences are up, you don’t want anything ruining your relaxing weekend.

After a day in the sun boating, swimming, tanning, take care of your skin by applying this super soothing lotion. Oatmeal and shea butter will leave your skin felling soft and smelling lovely.

I really love sitting on the dock and watching the stars long after sunset. Roasting marshmallows is a cottage tradition along with making s’mores. The PC S’mores Bites are a delicious before you break out the President’s Choice s’mores kit.

Other items I recommend packing include a nice big sun-hat, a good book, towel, and bathing suit. Also, don’t forget sunnies, I usually pack  few different pairs for selfies. You now me, ha! 🙂

If you’re heading to the cottage, Shoppers Drug Mart is a one-stop shop to get almost everything you need for a great weekend. You can also pick up a bunch of things for your host if you’re staying at someone else’s cottage.

When you visit Shoppers between June 20th – July 17th and spend $10 or more using your Optimum card, you’ll receive a PIN card. Enter the PIN code  at shoppersdrugmart.ca/summercontest for a chance to win 1 of 5 Prizes of $5,000. Trust me, $5,000 will reallllllly make it a perfect cottage weekend!

Thanks Shoppers for stocking me up and to find more great products and summer inspiration visit shoppersdrugmart.ca/funinthesun. Here’s to happy cottaging!
