 I haven't really bought a lot of clothes lately, but I couldn't resist this dress/tunic. I really don't wear white but I just love this, and it was on sale for such a great price to boot! Urban Outfitters tunic/dress, old leggings, J Crew ballet flats Wore this to my younger sister's annual summer barbecue:) my younger sis with her "little" doggie Darwin:D I can't believe summer is half over....waaaaaaaaaah!

What have I been watching #32

Image
 There are actually quite a few movies and shows I've seen since my last update, but I thought I'd just feature here the ones I liked. I also saw a lot of Asian horror, but if I mention all of them, this post would probably be a mile long so I thought I'd skip that for now....LOL all images from imdb.com 1)Jurassic World Dominion My middle child (who is a big fan of the franchise and dinosaurs in general) hated this movie, but I thought it was ok. 2) The Boys Season 3 Super gory and violent, but awesome writing as always (and I do love the cast). 3) The Umbrella Academy Season 3 Love this series as much as Stranger Things, The way they handled Elliot Page's character transitioning  was just so well done. 4)  Bordertown: The Mural Murders I'm a huge fan of the TV series so I was really glad to have finally seen this movie. Gotta love Nordic crime thrillers. 5) Candyman I thought this remake was just ok, but the cast was great, so Imma gonna forgive its shortcomings.

 Some activities we've been doing this summer:)  My daughter and I have been biking a lot everywhere, trying to really enjoy the hot week we've just had:) My husband was able to take some time off, so we decided to walk a bit around downtown Toronto and go to Ripley's Aquarium. Here's a short video I took while we were in Ripley's:) Enjoying a nice brunch:) Summer swimming class:) More biking:) And of course....some shopping. What have you been up to? Are you in a place experiencing the heat wave right now? How do you enjoy your summer?
