There's a bit of a delay.

Summer has decided to arrive late around here, and I'm not complaining. As much as I like wearing layers and sweaters, I wouldn't mind wearing my summer dresses a little bit longer:)

Currently Loving #38

A mixed bag of stuff I've been loving lately:)

1) Harvest Label backpack
I bought this from the Mitsukoshi shop at Epcot Disney, and have been using it daily since then. Very well-balanced and great construction.



2) Victoria's Secret Love Spell
Such a fresch scent. A new fave:)

3) Getting Genki in Japan by Karen Pond
Literally made me LOL. It's a collection of short essays written about the author and her family's experiences when they first moved to Japan. A quick fun read!

I just started watching this, but man...I am hooked! A very well-written series. Bae Doo Na is also great in it.

5) Death Note
I saw the Netflix version first, which I thought was ok (Willem Defoe as Ryuk was freaking awesome), so I decided to watch the Japanese live action series that came out awhile back. A very cool show, and honestly much better than the Netflix version.  I like the actors that played Light, Misa-Misa and L.
PS I've also seen a few episodes of the the anime, and I also highly recommend that one!

6) Samurai Gourmet

Oh my gosh! I'm always hungry after watching an episode. Such a great concept for a food show. Naoto Takenaka as Takeshi Kasumi also never fails to make me laugh:)

If you like Japanese food even just a little bit, this show is a must-watch. Thank you for this series, Netflix. More, please!

7) Laura Mercier foundation primer and Kett Cosmetics Hydro Foundation
This combo was what I wore when we were in Florida. I was really impressed with these two. My makeup lasted the whole day on my face (although I still did "shine" just because I always sweat so much.)

8) MAC Cosmetics Twig lipstick
This has always been the one lippie I always get from MAC. Universally flattering.

I got this from my sis-in-law. I use this a lot on myself and the kiddos. All-natural, and they do really work. Also very handy to have for travel.





What are you loving lately? Are you watching/have watched any of the shows mentioned above?

Light as a feather

I am all about the sleeves lately (read this blog post), and this top fits the bill:)
Max Studio top, Uniqlo legging pants, Vans slip ons


My photobomber strikes again...sigh.

He knows me better than I do myself!


Let's talk about this Uniqlo legging pants. Guys, when I first saw this in the store, I tried them on right away and really loved the fit/style, so I decided to get one. My husband was, like, "No. Buy more coz knowing you, you'll regret it later on."

I said, "No! I only need one. ONE!"
Husband: "I will not come back here tomorrow just to get some more. Just get more pairs now".

Grumble. Grumble.

I gave in and got it in different colours (and he also paid....hahaha).

So, what do you know... these are the only pants I've been wearing since I got them. If you notice... in the Florida  and Fan Expo pics, I was just basically these legging pants (aside from some denim shorts).

Yup.

And can we also admire the little embroidery on this top? So cute, right?

Do you have multiples of a wardrobe item?

Fan Expo Canada 2017 #FXC17

Gosh...August just went by like a blur with all the activities. I can't believe it's September already!

As always, Labour Day weekend was spent by our family doing the Fan Expo (minus the daughter who's still too young IMO for some of the stuff you can see there).

Here are the pics from this year's event:)




Let's see if you know all the characters that the cosplayers did...I certainly don't!


Lookie! My imaginary second husband:D


Husband's a big fan of the show!

Well, it's one of my fave anime, so....:D
















hahaha




Loved meeting Christian Potenza, who voices many of the characters in  our fave Canadian cartoons Total Drama Island and 6Teen.

I got a poster signed for my daughter....

Aside from the usual freebies and Fan Expo swag, here is my haul:)

 Happy 1st Day of school (to many peeps here in North America anyhoo) :)
