Until next time!

Have you shopped our Friends and Family Sale yet? This October, we’ve been thinking of way to really honor our customers with our “social sale” and “friends and family sale”. With the holidays coming up, we hope our customers also take time to treasure those they love the most. Check out our blog below for “5 Ways to Be A Better Friend or Family Member”!
1. Stop Giving Advice
Advice is great (if someone asks for it). However, often times friends are just looking for someone who will listen when they vent. Make sure your friend or family member asks for your opinion before giving unsolicited advice.

2. Be (Genuinely) Happy for Your Friend or Family Members Success
You may feel like you have a rivalry with a friend or sibling, but why not try and do something different…. be happy for them. We know sometimes it’s hard to look at someone’s vacation photos when you’re slaving away at work, but try something new and feel joy for that person. When someone has success, like a new relationship, engagement, job or child, why not exhibit genuine happiness for that person? That way when you have something good happen to you, you know your friends will be there.

3. Do the Little Things
Meeting a friend for a gym sesh? Why not bring them a cup of their favorite brew? Have an office bff? Why not bring them flowers when they get that big promotion? Has mom been watching your kids every weekend? Why not treat her to spa day or IGIGI dress? Doing the little things help to ensure your friends and family that they’re someone special to you. Maybe you’ll be lucky and they’ll start doing the same for you.

4. Offer to be DD
People go out, especially during the holiday season. Cabs and uber cost money, and sometimes people take their lives into their own hands. If you know Dad’s off to watch football with his buddies and will throw back a few beers, or your girlfriend and her hubby are going out for their anniversary, why not take a Netflix night and be on-call as their designated driver. You don’t want your friends or family members chancing it.

5. Let go of grudges.
Family and friends who have been together a long time, often have their share of drama. Instead of holding grudges because a sibling gets more financial attention or a friend is hanging out with someone you don’t like, why not follow the words of Frozen and “let it go”. If you can’t be happy and positive with the people in your life, what’s the point? If you can’t forgive, maybe it’s time to release them from your social circles all together.

Amarina Norris, 32, is a fashion designer living in Toronto, Ontario, where she runs the awesome online vintage plus-size boutique Ursa Major+. Amarina describes herself as a fun, positive person who uses fashion to put out as much good energy into the world as she can, starting with what she puts on in the morning.
She is also a plus-size fashion blogger and creative entrepreneur who says she finds her biggest motivation in the fearless women who go out every day and challenge beauty standards and what the mainstream media say women’s bodies should look like.
Amarina took the time to chat with IGIGI about her love of vintage clothes, why she started her business, and her carefully curated wardrobe.
Amarina is really inspired by prints – when she comes across a cool piece, her mind starts racing with all of the combinations and outfit possibilities.
