First stop was the Pacific Mall in Markham, ON. For those of you non-Ontarians, it is a mall that is Asian-run. All the stores are owned by Asian people and they sell a lot of Asian food, cosmetics etc and you can get knock off anything : clothes, purses, sunglasses etc. Oh there is also a lot of electronics. I had never been to this mall before and just wanted to check it out. I also wanted to get some more Asian cosmetic products. One thing I noticed was that a lot of stores were not open at the opening time of the mall. I got there right after opening, so next time I will go later in the day.
I ended up getting quite a few snack foods/candies. After I got home I tried them all and they are all amazing! My family all tried them as well and agreed. I am going to take them to work tomorrow to share with everyone. I also did get some makeup products. Here are some pics:
After that I went to Vaughan Mills. I probably should not have gone there. It was totally insane. It took me probably 20 mins to find a parking spot. I probably could have bought a lot more if I wasn't feeling so claustrophobic. The stores were way too crowded. It's too bad because there was some good sales. I ended up getting a bit more makeup because there is a store there that sells the brand NYX which is a brand I like and you can't get it where I live.
Besides that I had a list of what I was looking for that consisted of:
- new winter coat(ski jacket type, right now I have a peacoat which looks nice but its not that warm)
- new winter boots ( replacement for my Ugg look-alikes)
- nice flats for work
- 2011 agenda
- sunglasses (mine broke)
- nice pants for work
- and another other clothes I may have got had to be work-appropriate.
I googled Adidas jackets after I got home because I wanted to find a price to see if it was really $250 regular price. A lot of stores lie about the regular price to make you think you are getting a better deal. I couldn't find anything Canadian but this picture was from a UK site and it was listed for $135 pounds. So I'm not sure if they lied or not but I am confident that it was still a good price.
I am thinking of doing a clothing/accessories shopping ban soon like a lot of other bloggers. Especially since I am going to buy a new computer soon. I have to figure out all the details and then I will post about it!
