My Weekend in Pictures

I'm back into the swing of things, and I have many new and exciting posts ready for you guys :) Thank you to all of my new followers!  I took some pictures of my weekend with my iPod of random occurrences. 


A healthy Saturday breakfast! An egg on top of vegetables with seasonings and avocado. 


Out shopping with the fam, and I spotted this gorgeous rustic table. I would love it in my house, but it had quite a large price tag. 


How cute would these spoons/bowls be for baking? 


Making candles with supplies from Michael's


Before the wax could set, I added dried thyme and blue food coloring into this lovely tea cup from Poland. 


The finished product, but I still have to cut the wick. 


Ice cream!


Praline's and Cream Dream from Laura Secord. Heavenly. I need to paint my nails!


New top from Aritzia. I wore it today (Monday) and I have an outfit of the day post coming. 


New American Eagle jewelry and panties. Cute!


And I got my eyebrow's done :) 

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Bloggers Block


4:45am.  Coughing. Pink Eye. Cold. Awake.
It happens to the best of us. We get sick. We get stressed. It all piles up. Being sick is rough because it's hard to find inspiration. All I've wanted to do lately is sleep, go through my Tumblr dashboard and Google Reader, and clean. After coming back from March break in Tremblant Quebec (which was amazing!), it felt like everything just piled up. School work. Friends. Stress. Stress leads to me feeling uninspired, and another side effect is being sick. It hasn't been a bright week my friends. I'm hoping that whatever I'm sick with evaporates quickly so I can start enjoying this gorgeous spring weather and get some important school work done. My apologies if this paragraph sounds a bit off, it is 4:48am on a Friday and I think I have pink eye. Wheh. But... after viewing many blogs in my Google Reader, i've come up with some posts that I will be working on very soon!

  • a springtime makeup tutorial
  • a springtime nails tutorial
  • springtime trends
  • DIY projects
  • a health kick
  • healthy recipes! (yum)
  • skin/hair care routine
  • music I enjoy
I'm excited to develop these further. It's almost 5am, so I think I will sleep a little bit longer if my body allows and then wake up in 3 hours to finish my essay that was due two weeks ago. Oops. 

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Teenage Dreams

Teenage Dreams
The transition from winter to spring has been inspiring me lately. I know florals were the big trend last year, but I still adore any floral print at this moment, especially when it is the focus on an outfit.

Top 5 Favorites:

  1. Floral print anything (I wish flowers would start blooming outside)
  2. The Oreo cheesecake cupcakes I made recently (expect a post soon!)
  3. Beautiful hair: braids, buns, waves, etc. 
  4. Accessories for days, they do make or break an outfit!
  5. Water! Always a must for nice skin, hair and good health.
What are you current obsessions?

That's a Wrap


Hello lovelies! This week was off to a slow start, although I'm very thankful for the 'ice-day' we had on Monday. Pajamas + hot tea = the perfect Monday. As promised, today I'm doing a post on my outfit of the day. This was my outfit last Friday. I titled this post 'It's a Wrap' because it's referring to this unique, wrap-up of a scarf/cardigan I twisted around my neck. I added a few different accessories because they really do make an outfit. Enjoy!





Cardigan: Forever 21
Yellow tee: Forever 21
Ripped jeans: American Eagle Outfitters
Boots: Aldo
Ring: Sirens
Necklace: a boutique in Toronto
Bracelet: H&M

So, my question to you is: would you like to see more OOTD posts? They give me a reason to wear less hoodies and baggy jeans to school. Excuse the quality of the webcam photo's, I'm saving up for a better camera.
