Summer Skin

HEADWRAP, TANK TOP -- American Apparel
HAT -- Joe, Superstore

Happy Summer to everyone (: I actually wore this outfit with the sunhat, but when I set up my camera to take pictures I realized that they would turn out very bad (my test shot is above) because the hat blends in with the background ! So I quickly ran to my room and put the headwrap on, because the outfit wouldn't be complete without something else. I like the ensemble with the hat sooo much better, it's so much more beachy and cute, but the headwrap had to do. Something about it's colour is throwing me off though, it doesn't really go with the other colours :s

Short post today as I am getting ready to go see a dance show :) Happy Canada day to those of you who celebrate it ! Tomorrow's the big day, what are your plans?

Enjoy the long weekend !

It's been a while...

WRAP -- Aritzia
NECKLACE -- Forever 21

Finally an outfit post (: hoorah hoooraaaah. I love this outfit, I wore it to my friend's place yesterday just to hangout, but I can't wait to wear it out. If I look at it a different way, sometimes the hair and the wrap combine to a sort of pimp-esue look, which is definitely not a good thing haha. But yeah, it's a little more out there than what I normally wear, what do you guys think?

I'm almost in grade 12 ! What a bummer though, my summer hasn't started exactly how I wanted. There were two class of 2011/2012 grad stags in June, and I planned to attend both, them being my first grad stags. Seriously, the last week of school, all i talked about were the parties. What a shame that the first one was shut down, and the second I was out of town for. I was bummed, but then I thought, hey I have my Vancouver trip with my friends coming up ! Aaaaand then that got cancelled too. What gives?!

Usually my family and I take a holiday every summer. We've gone to Europe, the US etc etc, but this year we can't because of my grandpa being ill (and i definitely do not mind staying in town for him). I'm not used to being home all summer, so I think I'm going to get a job as a hostess..I'm ashamed to say I've never had a job before..harhar.

Soo, I have a giftcard for aldo, enough to buy a pair of shoes, but I don't know what to get ! I have such a problem when it comes to gift cards because I'm scared to spend them and see something better that I could've bought later. I can't decide if I should get a cute pair of summer sandals, or a pair of loafers that I can wear in the fall too. Heeelllppppp !

Hope everyone's enjoying their summer, it's only the beginning ! :)

Summer Timeeee

Bikini top and bottom -- H&M

Is this not one of the cutest bathing suits you've seen this summer season? I've been looking for the perfect bathing suit (I've been using my old all-black $10 walmart bikini my past two beach trips..) and I think that H&M has the cutest ones for awesome prices ! they range from around $5 to $30 dollars, which, compared to other places, is actually really really cheap. I don't know why I never invest in bathing suits, I guess I just find it useless cause in my town we only hae one crummy beach and lately it's been barely hot enough to go. Buuuuuut this year I want a new, nice bikini. I'm currently in Vancouver visiting my sick grandfather (which is why I haven't posted at all this week, sorry <3) and I'm leaving tomorrow. Monday morning I leave for Vancouver again with my friends to go shopping though, and that is when I hope to find this dream bikini :)

hope everyone's summer vacation is going great :)

Self-Portrait Sunday - Week 9 (I'm baaaack)

1: hello all ! I'm back to blogging, I just quickly took this picture right now, my hair is wet and i've decided to experiment and see how my natural curls turn out, I have nowhere to be tonight so why not:) School is finally done ! While I was complaining about so much school work the past few months, lots of people left encouraging comments and told me that my hard work would pay off, and they were all right ! I made principal's list at my school and made the honours list, so I'm incredibly happy ! I'm glad it's summer now and I have no more exams to write, finally 2.5 months to myself !

2: After this post i'm going to go back and read all the blogs I haven't read in forever, if I"m following you expect a few comments coming your waaay:) 

3: I'm off to Vancouver to stay with two of my friends in her mom's apartment in a week and a bit, her mom is letting us stay there alone so I'm pretty excited. Also shopping ! Cannot wait to pick up some summer items, and I can't wait to start my fall shopping ! All the stores will be stocked with leggings and sweaters soon :) What should I focus on for fall this year? I haven't really decided on what items I should invest in, any ideas?

4: I promise I'll have an outfit post up soon, I can't wait to get back to blogging ! 

5: So, what are everyone's plans for the summer? Feel free to comment, I'm genuinely interested:)

I've missed it :)
