My best friend MYY will leave Winnipeg before the end of this year. I was very upsetting we will not celebrate Christmas and New Year together. What I am afraid most is we may never see each other again because she will move back to her hometown.
Since she needs to bring some gifts back home for family and friends, and Alberta having tax advantage: they're paying 5% on sale tax; in Manitoba, we are paying 13%. We decided to take a long drive to Calgary and Banff to spend money and have fun during the Black Friday sale weekend.
After 12 hours of driving, we were close to Calgary. This photo was taken at a random rest area in Alberta.
We watched glamour sunrises from our comfortable loft-style Airbnb apartment.
Yes, we spend a lot of money on the past Black Friday weekend. I wish everything on the island chart was mine.
My friend MYY picked Gucci, and I bought this classic pair.
DOLCE & GABBANA DG2179 1313/6E
Timeless full rim round frame sunglasses, just exactly what I was looking for. It's happened to enhance my personality and appearance, but it's heavy.
We both bought this cute keychain.
TORY BURCH HEART KEY RING IN PINK MAGNOLIA
This smoky pink is my favourite colour. The high-quality gold plated key ring is easy to clip on and remove. With a small statement Tory Burch logo, this girly pink heart-shaped accessory is made by rabbit fur; it also adds luxury feeling to my everyday bag.
MYY wanted to check LV out, so we went to The Core Shopping Centre.
I had no intention to buy Louis Vuitton because I hate the classic materials, which prints the logo everywhere. Then, I saw those Epi leather bags in rose ballerine. The light baby pink is a necessary colour for my wardrobe, so I ended up couldn't control myself and take those two classic bags home.
LOUIS VUITTON ALMA BB
This bag is convenient and giving me carrying options. I was impressed on I can simply carry in my hands, on my forearm or shoulder, and as a crossbody because I am a 157cm petite girl. It looks small, but this purse has the capability to hold everything I need. I actually use this bag carefree as an everyday bag, and so far no scuffs.
LOUIS VUITTON POCHETTE FÉLICIE
I am seriously so in love with this wallet on chain. It's stylish envelope wallet feathers two removable interior pockets: an eight slots cardholder and a zip cash holder. The chain is detachable; it can also use as a crossbody or shoulder bag or clutch. It's lightweight and easy to carry for daily basis.
We drove to Banff from Calgary in about an hour and half.
Lac des Arcs is a lake that part of the Bower River in Alberta.
It was a bad weather day, but we couldn't miss the glacial gem - Lake Minnewanka.
Unfortunately, snow covered everything including the famous Lake Louis.
Reed Lake is on the way back home, in Saskatchewan.
Although we spend to much money and faced many difficulties, I still think it was a wonderful trip. I never imaged how two girls will drive 3500 kilometres across two provinces within only six days, but we finally made it.
Thank you for travelling with me. Since we met, you are like a big sister to me. I feel so grateful to have you in my life, and I really appreciate your kindness, forgiveness, and everything you did for me. It's so hard to say goodbye, but I know we will meet and travel together again.
