Boutiques & Malls Reviews

"The Mall" is this mystical place where every teenage dream comes true:  meeting friends at The Mall, seeing a movie with a new boyfriend at The Mall, shopping for prom dresses at The Mall... One-stop shopping is only one of the many reasons we're drawn to these indoor and outdoor modern-day bazaars like moths to the flame.

As much as we love the reliability of finding our favourite brands on the ubiquitous mall directory boards, other shopping aficionados live for the hunt of the next great boutique.  Independent hat makers, curated dress boutiques, and only-found-here lingerie locales are the treasures that tempt these supporters of the local economy.  Expense, justified.

Bath & Body Works
I absolutely love their hand soaps! They smell so great and my favourite is the foaming ones. The best part is, they have great promotions and always offer coupons!

Dollarama
From cute decor to cute rare shoe finds I love dollorama. Christmas stockings, easter, all the holiday chocolate. Loot bags. It's a cost efficient way to get things done.

Winners
Although the merchandise is trendy and usually affordable, they have LOUSY Customer Service. I had an accident within the store where a shelf with about 8 wooden Cutting Boards were not placed properly and all fell on my foot. Although the Assistant Manager and one of the clerks...

H&M
H&M;is a very stylish store and it's not expensive . They carry designer brands for less . Designers will specifically make clothes for them and sell them for a fraction of the cost . I wish they had a plus size available in all their locations and more options . They have men's...

LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics
This is by far my absolute favourite store in the world. The staff at the Ottawa Lush location are nice, respectful, and very educated on skin care. They always offer me free facials and give me samples of any product I want to try! If you haven't been to this store, you need to...

Old Navy Stores
A great store for essentials, tee's tanks, shorts. Great selection, great pricing. I always pop in to see what they have. I'm obsessed with their pyjama bottoms. Return policy is outstanding, 90 days...insane! The store is huge and well organized. If you go yo the back of the...

Victoria's Secret Stores
I really love this store especially the PINK clothes are my favorite and I have a lot of them. The problem is the quality for what you're paying. The sweaters are expensive and ends up getting woolies and marks on them anyway

Sephora.com
What I love about shopping online at Sephora.com is that it is easy to find what you are looking for: you can search either by brand or by type of product. I love the loves list in which I keep all the items I really want, but not necessarily ready to buy. What is great is that...

Walmart store
j'aime ce magasin surtout depuis qu'il y a l’épicerie. En général les produits sont beaucoup, mois cher qu’ailleurs et c'est ce que j'aime le plus. Je vous le conseil fortement.

The Children's Place
The Children's Place is my go to store for whenever I have a baby shower to go to, or whenever I have a baby or small child to shop for. They have a great selection of colours and patterns in their clothing and often have great clearance sales.

Michaels crafts
Michael's is my go-to store for all my crafting needs. They have the largest selection by far. I really like how I can get everything I need in one place (like my knitting essentials and patterns). I've used their custom framing twice. Although expensive they treat your items...

Groupon
J'aime beaucoup Groupon. Pourquoi payer plus cher lorsque l'on peut avoir un article a moindre coût avec Groupon ? J'achète régulièrement sur ce site et je ne suis jamais déçu lorsque je reçois mes commandes. Rapide et efficace.

Roots Store
I'm not the biggest fan of roots sadly even though it is a Canadian company. I just find most of there cloths so boring and over priced. Who wants to wear a Beaver all the time and one that costs 50-80$ at that!? That being said I do love there sweat pants and have one big comfy...

SoftMoc
I've had nothing but a positive experience with this brand! I bought a bag from roots at their store once, only (approx.) 40$ (which is pretty cheap for roots) and i loved it sooo much. I put it in the dryer (my own fault) and it got destroyed. I then went and bought a new one...
