It's like a sauna in here!

Another heat wave has hit the city. I don't know how I feel about it. I mean, it is officially summer so this should be expected. At the same time, there's something disturbing about walking out of the house and feeling like you're in an oven.

Anways...have a great weekend, everyone, and to my fellow Canucks, Advanced Happy Canada Day!

Lost in translation

I love this shirt, as it's black, comfy, and I don't really understand what it says. Please note that I do not condone smoking nor drinking, nor smoking AND drinking!
I would just like to add that the jeans are soooo old that they frayed like this. I didn't buy them like that:)

Happy Thursday, dudes! One more day til the weekend...sweeeeeet:)

For those endless summer nights

Now that summer weather has taken over North America (most days anyway), I thought I'd post my favourite beauty products for the hot days:)


Scent: What are your favourite summer products? Do tell:)

Mother Earth

I know it might be redundant to pair a floral print with green, but it sure is environmentally-friendly, eh? :P

Have an awesome Sunday, everyone:) How's your weekend?

Fekking hot!

This was taken on a day that was so hot and humid that I wanted to wear something light and airy but still covered. (It was BOILING that the city had a heat alert!) It's supposed to be cooler today....fingers crossed....
My daughter is obsessed with cleaning the backyard every time we're out there! Seriously!

Have a great weekend, everyone:)

Here's a little something to make you smile. Our eldest son did this when he was left alone with the computer:)

New in...Haystack Floral

I was really happy to find these jeans on sale at Aritzia:) I just fell in love as soon as I saw them. These are going to be on heavy've been warned!

Happy Hump Day:)

Father's Day 2012

This post is dedicated to the awesomest dads that I know:)

 Father's Day ended up being a great and relaxing day. My in-laws took the kids for the day, so my husband and I went downtown for some "let's pretend we're dating again" time, as the weather ended up being nice(although they predicted rain!). The whole clan then up met for dinner:)

The North by Northeast (NXNE) happened this weekend too, so that's the stage behind me (in Yonge and Dundas Square).

Hope everyone had a great weekend, and here's to a fab work week ahead:)

Obsession #14

Since getting the tie-dye pants from Zara, my lust for this print has now travelled to bags!

They would make great summer bags, eh? What are you coveting lately?

When the weather is fine...

Yay for the great weather! To me, hot days are all about being laid-back and fancy-free, and well, you can't get any more laid back than this outfit:P

Have a great Thursday, everyone:) Hope the weather is great wherever you are.

Noble gas

This picture was taken on a cloudy morning, so I thought what better way to brighten up the day than to wear my trusty neon shirt. (I titled this post as above, as that's what comes up first when you look for the definition of neon, referring to the element Neon...heehee...I kinda like it:P)

Have a wonderful Tuesday, guys:)

The half-tuck

My sis and I were discussing the other day the popularity of the half-tucked shirt. A lot of bloggers do this for their pics (or perhaps in real life:P). So, on that note, I thought I'd do an outfit pic with me doing so.

 How I really wore the outfit the whole day:P 

Do you guys like the half-tucked-in-shirt look? To be honest, I've always thought this was a silly thing to do, especially coz everytime I do it, it just looks sloppy.

Vested interest

This vest has been getting a lot of mileage lately, which is kinda sad considering it's already June:P

Well, it's Friday, guys....gonna get down on Friday....everybody's looking forward to the weekend:P

New in....variety

I had another kids-free day on the weekend, and took advantage of it by doing some shopping.

Here's the haulage:

The original plan was to get summer sandals. What can I say? Must really stop this unhealthy obsession with ankle booties! I don't know why I'm stuck on this type of shoes, what with the warmer weather coming soon...sigh....these Pembrooks are so pretty though, aren't they?:P

Anyhoo, hope everyone's having a great week so far:)

Below seasonal

It's been really cool and rainy the past few days...sigh...sweaters are back out from the closet.

I usually don't mention current events on this blog, but on Saturday (June 2nd), the mall I went to (Eaton Centre) had a shooting a few hours after I left.  I was really glad that, first, I left early, and second, that I was alone and the family was not with me (in case I didn't leave early). Thoughts and prayers to the  people affected by this tragic event:(

Currently loving #3

Random things I'm really into lately...:)

Have you guys seen this SNL parody of the books/Amazon? H-I-L-A-R-I-T-Y!!! (Warning:NSFW)

The new Maroon 5 single Payphone...oh...em...gee. I'm obsessed! Best part of the song:
If "Happy Ever Afters" did exist,
I would still be holding you like this

Have a great weekend, everyone!!! And as usual, please do tell what you guys are currently loving!
