Self-Portrait Sunday - Week 8

Hello lovlies :) my apologies for my lack of posts, it's been like this for a while ! School and everything is just overwhelming, so I'm going on a 'blogger break'. I'm sorry I wont be posting very often until June 17 ! That's when school ends, I'll try and still look at and comment on the other blogs that I love, but everything is just too much right now ! Hope you all understand:)

thankyou to all who read and follow my blog :) bear with me ! 

**just realized I've been wearing my cross ring the past three self-portrait sunday posts ! hehe I must be in loveeeee.

Hard to love

CARDIGAN, HEADBAND -- American Apparel
RING -- Jwlry
NECKLACE -- Forever 21

Ah an outfit post finally :) I do realize that this skirt was in my last outfit post..and I don't really like doing that. I mean, I don't like wearing the same piece in to consecutive outfit posts, I'm not sure why haha. Anyways nothing is really new here, I've been out shopping lots but I feel almost "shopped out." I'm not finding anything in the stores I usually shop at (H&M, American Apparel, Foever 21). Seriously, my whole wardrobe is built upon those three stores. I need to shop at different places ! But it's hard living in a small town in Canada. I wore this out to brunch today at Cora, I just ate my heart out. Two eggs poached, potatoes, toast and fruit. I seriously recommend this place. Now that we've discussed my breakfast...

I've really been into sleeveless blouses lately, I think they're an easy way to "fashion" up any lazy outfit. Worn with skinny jeans or over leggings would be an easy way to quickly look cute.

How was everyone's may long weekend? :) I'm extremely sad its over, but it was fun while it lasted !

Self-Portrait Sunday - Week 7

On my mind

1: Took this photo earlier today, didn't have a chance to upload it ! Sorry for the late post, It's been quite the day today. Have any of you had to read Macbeth in school? I'm kinda bittersweet about it, I love reading Shakespeare but at the same time I get frustrated if I can't figure out the meaning of a part right away, ah well. I have to do a theme/motif chart for every scene of every act in the play, and I've totally left it to the last minute. Finished it today though ! weeoooo.

2: I'm such a huge Topshop fan, but I live in Canada soooo I can't shop online, and the only store in North America is in New York ! I've been to New York twice, but that was three years ago and at that time  I was suuuper interested in Abercrombie and didn't even know Topshop existed ! How things have changed... Anyways i've just signed up for a Paris/Barcelona/Madrid spring break trip with my friends next year ! It's our grad year so we wanted to do something fun. Aaaand it just so happens that there is a Topshop in Madrid in one of the areas we're going to ! I know it's like a year away, but I'm beyond stoked.

3: I am in great need of a new swimsuit. I don't know why, but I've never paid more than like 10 bucks a piece for a bathing suit, even though I basically live at the beach in the summer. I want to invest this year !! I've been wanting a high waist polka dot bikini, i love the vintage look to it. I'm quite the newb when it comes to buying nice bathing suits, where do you guys buy yours? An all black bikini from Wall Mart has been my swimsuit staple for as long as I can remember, so feel free to give me advice and if any of you lovely readers know any cool stores that you love to shop for swimsuits at, just comment :)

Hope everyone's enjoying their last bit of maaaaaay loooonggg... :)

Bright Idea

I've been all about neutrals lately, but finally the weather is warming up in my town and all I've been wanting to wear is brights ! i'm really getting into colour blocking, so hopefully I'll get to go shopping soon and pick up some essentials for the trend. Any suggestions in what bright items I should invest in first?

outfit post soon, promise :)

Self-Portrait Sunday - Week 6

On my mind

1: Finally got my ring from llymlrs' jewelry shop ! The quality is excellent, except the silver is wearing off pretty quick. I put a coat of clear nail polish on top and that seemed to have stopped it, but other than that, i'm in love !

2: Life is busy, I love blogging but I apologize for my lack of posts, hope you can all bare with me ! THe end of the year is always a busy time,

I hope everyone had a great weekend :)

The lazy one

SHIRT -- MTV New York
SCARF -- Joe, Superstore

Hello all ! Another outfit post weeooo. I'm not sure how much I like this outfit, it was very quickly thrown together in the morning. I usually like lots of different textures in my outfits, but this just screams COTTON to me :s ah well, I was comfortable :)

Hope everyone's having a good start to their weeks, sorry for the short post !

Self-Portrait Sunday - Week 5

On my mind

1: This was the slowest week ever ! I always find the last month or so of school goes by soooo slow and I really dislike it.

2: I bought my dress for my boyfriends grad a while ago, and it looks very similar to this one, except shorter with a different neckline and a smaller floral print. I didn't want to look too fancy because it's not my grad, I'm just a date, but I'm getting scared now that it's not fancy enough :s Any ideas on how to dress it up a bit more? or how to do my hair to make it look more dressy? feel free to comment :)

3: I was looking through Maria's blog (I highly recommend you all check it out) and she posted a picture of the american apparel carry-alls, so I started looking at them on the site and I"m absolutely in love with them. So cute and they'd go with everything !

4: A happy mother's day to you all :) I spent the day with my mom, we cooked brunch and tried to go watch my boyfriend's soccer game, but there was no parking so we just drove back and forth past to field to catch some of it haha,

Hope everyone had a good weekend :)

While our blood's still young

BLOUSE -- Forever 21

Hello all :) Not too much to say today, except school's been extra busy this week because of math ughh. But my birthday's comin up ! weeoo, I think I'm going to have a sixties themed party at my house. I never really had big theme birthday parties (last year was my first, it was a masquerade) but they've grown on me, and its just another excuse to have a party so why not right ? 

All I really want for my birthday is a Canon Rebel XT or XTi, I just need a beginners camera for now, but I'm not sure which I should consider? If any of you know about cameras and have any advice at all just let me know please and feel free to comment :)

Hope everyone's having a lovely week !

Self -Portrait Sunday - Week 4

On my mind

1: My sister is now home from university, so it feels like summer ! ..but sadly it's not and I have school tomorrow uggh.

2: Just watched Obama's speech on the death of Osama Bin Laden, such a weird time right now. But Obama is seriously a great speaker, he's definitely fit for president.

3: I've been loving crop tanks and high-waist vintagey-y looking shorts soo much, they look so summery together. I actually got the inspiration from Naomi of of real world las vegas 2011 (please no judgment for my love of stupid reality TV) She often wears bright cropped tanks and short denim shorts and rocks them !

4: I reaaaally wanted this Clinique chubby stick to wear in summer, but I couldn't find a nice pink colour that didn't look awkward with my skin tone :( Luckily I was called for a free makeover at Shoppers for a new Lise Watier line, and I ended up trying on this lip stick/gloss and I love it ! i highly recommend it, it feels so soft like chapstick on my lips and its small and easy to carry around.

Hope everyone has a good monday tomorrow.. :)
