I am happy to say that I have furthered my Canadian patriotism a little more this year. Or at least increased my collection of “Canada Stuff“. As Canada’s 145th birthday passed us by on July 1st, I had been scouring the stores throughout June for anything I could get my hands on that had a maple leaf or Canadian flag on it.
The best item I found this year has definitely got to be the iPad case. It is such a unique little trinket for my new-to-me iPad. Ever since my mom gave me her old iPad in March, I have been a little obsessed with it. It is my best friend at the gym where I watch movies and read ebooks. I still use my iPhone, but I love the bigger screen of the iPad. Now I can carry a little Canadian pride with me wherever I take my iPad.
I am also really pleased with the Canadian luggage. Although, I already own Canadian luggage that is the old heavy style luggage. It’s black with little red maple leaves on it. It’s nice, but I do love the new luggage so much more as it is more my style. It is vibrant and loud and totally me. Plus, it’s features the new light-weight luggage design that has 4 wheels on the bottom for easy movement. I look forward to traveling to Florida in November toting my gorgeous new luggage.
I was much more strict this year with my purchases. I was very conscious about what I was spending my money on. Normally I come away from Canada Day shopping with so many new clothes and random trinkets that never get used. I have 2 closets over flowing with Canada themed clothing and so I only bought a few clothing items that I really loved. As for the trinkets, I didn’t bother buying things I knew would just sit around. I have so much stuff and so little space, I really didn’t need to add more clutter. I am happy with my small, but relatively awesome finds.
