Canada Day may be behind us, but we’re celebrating our national pride all month long! Whether you’re heading up north to a cottage or enjoying everything the city has to offer this summer, there’s no better way to show off your Canadian pride than with these must-have, made-in-Canada products.
Skinny jeans out, boyfriend jeans in – this summer, it’s all about style and comfort. These Second Yoga boyfriend jeans in Morocco wash give you the look of a slim-fit pants with a more relaxed feel – plus, they go with pretty much everything. Wear them with pumps and a blazer for a super-trendy office look or pair with a simple tee and your favourite sneaks for Sunday brunch with your BFFs. (Second Yoga Boyfriend Jean in Morocco Wash, $159.99)
Train Your Brain
Canadians are smart cookies, which is why we came up with the Muse Brain Sensing headband. It may seem sci-fi, but bear with us – this revolutionary gadget actually detects your brain signals as you play games and do mind exercises, while giving you valuable feedback in real time! All it takes is three minutes a day and you can reduce stress, anxiety and improve your day-to-day focus. How cool is that? (Muse Brain Sensing Headband, $399).
Bag It Up
Let’s face it, ladies: Those tiny little clutches we take out at night are far from practical. Thankfully, mini satchels are having a moment! Wear this super-sleek purse for a glamorous night out on the town or (gasp) go ahead and ditch that heavy tote altogether… Trust us, you’ll feel free as a bird. And for the animal lovers out there, this cork-based product is 100 per cent vegan. (Rok Cork Cheyenne Mini Satchel, $99)
Makeup To Go
Travelling abroad this summer? You’ll need a handy makeup kit that fits right in your purse or suitcase, and Pandora’s Very Cool + Travel Brush set does just the trick! The purple palette eyeshadows complement every kind of skin type, while its six essential brushes — Blush, Flat Shader, Contour, Angled, Spool and Thin Eye Liner – will make applying your makeup an absolute breeze. And how cute is the pink leather carrying case? (Pandora’s Makeup Box Very Cool +Travel Brush Set, $85)
If you’re going to own a leather biker jacket – and let’s be real, every woman should! – let it be this beautiful Wolf & Moon Atelier motorcycle slicker. Trendy yet timeless, the black biker jacket is a wardrobe staple among the fashion set (bonus points for cool brass hardware). Durable, stylish and oh-so Canadian.
