part and parcel: leslie.

i’m pretty convinced that part and parcel is everyone’s favourite feature because we’ve got a group of voyeurs on our hands here at s&s. and that? that i like!

so here we go again! this time, let’s welcome leslie.

i met her through other calgary bloggers, and i’m quite thankful i did. she’s so cheerful, positive and supportive, not to mention funny and loves shoes so much it says so in her social media handles. (@Leslieluvsshoes). the sad part of just getting to know her, liking her, and having great monogram coffee dates with her, is that she’s moving out of the country! *sad face* but the good news with that is i’ll have someone to visit in texas.

leslie has some interesting things in her purse, and lucky for us, she’s sharing!


sephora blotting papers

i constantly struggle with oily skin and having bangs just compounds the issue. i have packages of these tucked literally everywhere and use them several times a day. they are amazing! i may also be known to encourage my husband to use them as well if i think he looks shiny (ha ha).

toe soxx

remembering socks for barre is something i am not good at. for a while i was always forgetting them and having to buy new pairs or renting (i don’t really like the concept of renting socks, YUCK!). literally the only solution is having a pair (or several) in my purse at all times.


this one is an odd one. my massage therapist recommend this for anytime i was sick or getting sick for immunity boosting and i absolutely swear by it. i always have a bottle with me in case i start feeling like i am coming down with something.


i used to be terrible at wearing my glasses (i really only need them for distance) but since i got these super cute Kate Spade ones i don’t mind wearing them as much.


hello Calgary dry weather! this is a must in my purse since i feel like my lips are always dry.

nuun tablets

the grape ones especially. i find mid-afternoon when i want something sweet this usually does the trick (sometimes i mix it with carbonated water and it feels like i am having a pop). they are also perfect for hydration when i am travelling and am struggling to get enough water in.

paper schedule

i have everything in my iPhone calendar but always have a paper version of the month printed out that i have tracked my workouts and anything else i have going on. i really need to invest in a proper planner…
