Currently Loving #25

These stuff I'm currently loving are definitely obsessions I will probably have for a long time:)

1) Filth (can be seen on Netflix)
I have always been a James McAvoy fan, but! This film... he was just so amazing as the main character Bruce Robertson that I can't stop gushing about him.

This is a very dark film based on Irvine Welsh's book (Just bought it on Kindle. Looking forward to reading it). Welsh also wrote "Trainspotting", so if you've read that or seen that movie (which I both loved as well), then you know how disturbing his work can be. A lot of scenes are very hard to watch, but guys, James's acting will just blow you away.

 NB: If you're going to search for the film trailer, just a warning: it's NSFW!

2) Fossil Amanda satchel
I was actually deciding between this and another satchel, but hubby said this is a better fit for me, and he was right. This bag is just the perfect size, and can go with a lot of outfits. Best thing: got it on sale!

 3) Janome sewing machine
I've never sewed in my life before getting the Janome SUV1108, but this was so easy to set up and use, and runs like a dream. This is a basic mechanical model, but it does what I need. I'm so excited to learn this new skill.:)

4) Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer
I first heard about this from Zoella, so I thought I'd give it a go. The texture is very light and easy to blend, and it's great for everyday use.

What are you currently loving? Have you seen Filth?

Let's Go The Ex 2015

I thought it's only appropriate that the last day of August is the day I'm posting about our annual CNE excursion, which for us Torontonians is the sign that summer is truly over.

Here are some pics taken that day (Aug 29th):) We always have a fab time going!

Best part of the CNE: the food!

Blooming onion...very healthy:D

Massive amount of people!

There was a Sherlock exhibit, you guys! Here I am with my imaginary boyfriends.
I don't know why they don't look so happy.

I wanted to steal that background wallpaper.

Do you like going to fairs?

Inspiration: 80's Madonna

Let us all bask in the glory of the Madge before she became a workout fiend.

Coz you're hot, then you're cold!

 I love the hot weather but not everyone around me does. My husband likes to run the air conditioner in our house a bit colder than I like. The malls run their ACs on full blast...sigh....what's a girl to do? Well, I knitted this shawlette, which doubles as a bolero of sort...perfect for when I just want to feel a bit warmer:)
(If you knit, pattern is available here.)

In a normal summer weather:
H20 tank, Calvin Klein pants, Vans slip ons

When the AC is on full-blast:

And can I just tell you how much I love these pants? (They were 80% off! Whut?!)

Are you a hot or cold kind of person?

A week's photo diary (plus a video!)

Last week had been a bit crazy when it comes to summer activities. We decided to stay for a couple of days at Great Wolf Lodge,  and also got to walk around Niagara Falls. And of course, it all started with another visit to the zoo:D

Our zoo has the awesomest staff and volunteers, yo!

The little one was cranky by this point...sigh....
Then, off to Niagara!

bedtime story time

 It was raining on and off the day we were there.:D

 Walking around Clifton Hill, which is the most touristy place ever:)

Singing while walking...I can't even....

"Please. Enough with the singing!"

They seriously did not get tired of the water park!
Here's a short video my daughter filmed while we were there. I didn't even know she did this til I found it much later on my phone!

Our last day...the little one was not too happy to go.

I can't believe half of August has gone by already...sigh....
