Under $100: Best fashion and beauty buys for December
While we've put together plenty of thoughtful gift guides this holiday season, here are a few things we're hoping to pick up ourselves, all under $100.
My skin can use all the moisture it can get—especially in the winter. Which is why I always have a facial mist on hand. I’m looking forward to trying this one from new-to-Canada brand Jowaé. The mist is light and refreshing, with Sakura blossom and glycerin (for hydration) and Lumiphenols (an antioxidant) to add a dose of moisture throughout the day, or to prep your skin for serums when at home. As an added bonus, the formula is 97 per cent natural, and at $19 (for 200 ml) you can spritz all winter long. - Alexandra Donaldson, fashion & beauty editor

In the Bag
I'm really hoping someone (*ahem* significant other) will surprise me this Christmas with this super chic backpack I've been keeping my eye on, pretty much since it was released. I love the ombre colouring and the brand even more for being completely vegan-friendly. And, if I don't receive it as a gift, I'll just have to treat myself. -Linda Cotrina, web producer

I’m a big fan of shopping in the men’s section—and my husband’s side of the closet. It’s where I find many of my favourite button-downs, sweaters and t-shirts. So when I found this perfectly relaxed men’s henley I bought one for myself and one for my guy pretty quickly. It’s the easiest casual shirt, and I’ll be sporting mine on repeat with denim on weekends. But don’t be surprised if you find this one tucked into a high-waisted pencil skirt during workdays too. - AD
