Hello everyone, its been a while again. The past few months have been a big change for me, I finally discovered my reason for being sick all the time. Turns out I had Celiaces Disease, its been a pretty big adjustment for me as I kind of loved gluten items. I am finally starting to feel a bit better but I still have a long way to go in learning everything and still feeling my best.

I am back in school now for the fall, I am actually taking a digital media marketing course, in which I have to blog. I created a wordpress for my marketing courses but it looks terribly ugly and is in definite need of an upgrade. I personally like blogger better. Anyhow since I will be blogging for school I think I might start blogging on here again as well.

In the mean time before I get up and running again, make sure to follow me on pinterest and I will also be adding a button for my instagram page!

So clearly I am lacking in motivation to blog. Things have just been kind of crazy the past few months, after finishing up the semester I seemed to have non-stop illnesses, and I am honestly starting to feel like a broken record being sick all the time, but it has really sucked the life and motivation out of me. My focus has just been on getting healthy, hopefully after many pokes of blood and diet alterations I will be feeling better than ever.

Anyways I did have to share to any lingering readers out there the perfect tees. I thought before the new collection of tees at the gap were the ones inspired by Alexander Wangs line, but when I went into the downtown location and saw the 'Gap Pure' collection I realized that had to be the line inspired by Wang. They are kind of really awesome and perfect, super soft material with the right amount of slouch. They didnt have my size in store so I ordered the black and grey from online.. I think though I will eventually need the white as well.

I've been finding it really difficult to get in blogging time, it used to be so easy but somehow I keep pushing it behind other tasks, but the weather is total crap today and I've just been lounging around, and just made a yummy smoothie, so what better time for a post.

Smoothies are my new thing, I've been enjoying them so much lately, I use the Vega smoothie the orange pack and usually blend them with a banana, frozen blueberries a bit of Flax and Chia seed, a bit of a juice and water. Very yummy. I also recently tried Vega's new updated "Vega One" formula, and it tastes soo much better than the last one, I like the vanilla bean.

Usually this time of the year I start thinking about things I want for summer, I don't particularly have any exciting wants this year, but here is my list so far:

1. New summer bag, I have a yellow one that I love to use but its seen better days.. thinking about trying out some kind of leather cleaner on it, but I don't really know if something like that works.

2. Perfect pink nail polish, I love this colour Chiara from the blonde salad is wearing, but I don't know what brand it is.

3. Summer tees, the gap has got some great basic tees right now, apparently they were inspired by Alexander Wang tees. Perfect slouch and softness. I got a black crew, I would usually prefer v but I think I will go back and get another few, maybe crew and v, only $19.95, so the price is right!

4. Bright bottoms. I'm usually pretty neutral with my bottoms, but I love all the colours out there right now! Soo many to choose from, from shorts to pants, brights and pastels there must be hundreds of shades.

5. New perfume, actually I just bought Estee Lauder bronze goddess perfume, I bought the oil a couple of years ago, why I have no idea because it gets all over your clothes, so when I saw they had it again this summer I was so thrilled and had to buy it, it literally smells like summer in a bottle to me, so delicious.

6. Beachy wave hair spray. Cant decide yet which one I am going to get, I keep saying every year I will get one but still haven't, so this is the year. I hear good things about the bumble&bumble one, so I might try that.

Im also becoming really obsessed with Pinterest! So addicting, check out the link on the side to view and follow me! :)

Hello everyone, so this past week has been the start of my new adventures of eating more exciting and better foods. My first new recipe I tryed was from the blog oh she glows. She has amazing looking vegan recipes, I cant wait to try more. The first I tryed was the black bean and butternut squash burrito, which was amazzzing. Seriously awesome success. I didnt take a picture of mine, but this is a picture from oh she glows, and mine actually turned out very similar!

Tonight Im going to be having leftover curry in a hurry, I should take a picture of it, because its also amazing.

So over the last week, it has been clean-up week, throwing out old clothes and stuff I dont use anymore, I still have the issues of way to much stuff. I know I've been saying this for a long time but I definitely need a complete room overall and makeover.. summer project perhaps? Id really like to stick to that one.

Lastly, I added a pinterest button on the side of my blog for anyone who would like to follow me! I finally joined the pinterest craze about a week ago, and I must say its very addictng. I dont have a great number of pictures yet, but Im sure it wont take me long! I added a few of my faves from my computer just to get me going too.

Hello Again

Hello everyone, it's been a longg time and it feels kind of odd yet good to be posting again. I really never planned to have a mid-blogging crisis and abandon it without notice. It just sort of happened, school was my main focus, and it just sort of took over. Since I just finished my spring semester and wont be going back again till fall I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to get back into blogging. I've really missed blogging and reading all my usual blogs.

I've had a lot of time to think about everything I want to blog about, I have some new items I want to share and I think I will also be posting about non-fashion related things like food and recipes! I dont know if I have ever mentioned being vegetarian and an extremely picky eater, so over the past few months I've really been interested in discovering new recipes and trying new things and Id like to post about all my discoveries!

I cant wait to get posting again and would love to hear from any old time or new time visitors and anything else you'd like to see on my blog! I've also recently joined twitter and pinterest so I will be adding those links to my blog soon!

Flare September

I've been wanting to post this editorial from Flares September issue since I saw it, love the colour and scenery in these!
 Its finally beginning to feel like fall and Im super excited to get back to wearing boots and sweaters and scarves! I must seem so fickle because probably only a couple of weeks ago I was loving the warmth, but Im definitely ready for fall now!

Isabel Marant Inspired Lookalikes

Wouldnt you know that the first week back to school is actually the hottest we've had all summer..only its not summer anymore, so that kinda sucks! Still its nice to keep the warm weather around for as long as possible because I know it wont be long before Im sitting in a cold, dark gloomy classroom at 12 in the afternoon.

On one of my last days of freedom I went downtown with a friend, did a bit of shopping and spent time on the beach. We went to the Aritzia warehouse sale.. which was..way overrated? I've been before and it was decent but this time I did not enjoy it, someone please tell me why I saw a Zara mens top and something from Topshop? Just odd.

Anyways leading to my shopping point I saw these lovelies at Aldo, instant flashes of Isabel Marants' perfect Dicker boots popped into my head as a sales associate and I discussed how awesome they were but how these were such a great lookalike with a way more reasonable price tag.
Isabel Marant, $615

Aldo, $100

Aldo, $100

I was originally thinking I liked beige..but now Im kind of leaning towards the black.. maybe because fall is coming, what do you guys think, beige or black?

dog days of summer

 Summer is almost over and Im so sad! I really do not feel like going back to school next week! The weather has been so nice, so I've really been trying to make the most of it, that means lots of beaches, lakes, ice cream and just being outside as much as possible! That kinda meant putting my closet transformation on hold for a little bit. Doesnt take much to put that on hold, but last night I finally got around to it. I got a new extra wardrobe thing for hanging and storing more stuff. The beginning stages are going okay, I've decided it would make sense to categorize my items (a shockingly creative concept I know), so thats whats on the agenda for tonight! Fun, fun..
Anways I took a couple shots from my iphone over the past couple days, so I thought Id share some of the lovely days with you.

feather ring

So the past few days have been super nice, but I still had to set aside some time to clean my room. A task that I've been putting off... pretty much all summer. I have this issue where I have way too many clothes and literally not enough space, Im sure I am not alone in this issue. I'll admit I could be on the verge of being a hoarder, I hate to ever throw anything away because 'what if one day I want this?' but stuff had to go. I managed to get rid of a bit, but the overcrowding issue still remains. Im trying to come up with better storage techniques and possibly a new wardrobe thing to hang clothes in since my closet was meant for a toddler of something. I also have an issue with wayy too many old magazines, I recently tossed a bunch, but some I just hate to get rid of, so currently a bunch are stuffed on a bookshelf.. but Im slowly losing space. We'll see how it goes in the next couple of weeks, Id really like to get things organized before I go back to school.

So my question to you readers who read all this is a) How do you keep your room/closet organized and b) what do you do with your old magazines? Toss them right away, shelf them? Any tips or pictures would be great!

I also bought another new ring, I love feathers and it was only $6 so this was an easy purchase! I got it at Aldo!

Aug 9th

Hay everyone, Im home now, I've been home for a little while but I've been busy enjoying our summer weather by going to the lake and the beach! Have to do all these things before school starts back in, why does September always seem to come so fast once August hits!? Even though Im still trying to make the most out of summer its impossible to not start browsing through, and probably buying some new fall stuff. I know I say this probably every year, but I've decided fall clothing is probably my favorite even though I love warm sunny weather, I also love a cold, sunny, crisp leaves fall-y kinda day. Fall just has so many options and possibilities. But then again I might possibly change my mind next spring going into summer. What is your fave season?

While your pondering that, I want to show you the new converse if you haven't already seen it. They might not even be new actually, but I had never seen them before. Converse are pretty much the only sneaker I ever wear, mostly because they look good with every type of pants, a good staple shoe. The new ones are slightly thinner than the originals but not as thin as the 'light' ones, plus I think they have a better shape than the light ones. Cant wait to get a pair.

Hi everyone, just a little update, I've been on vacay for a little over a week now, Just finished margaritas and sangria at this cute little restaurant! Still have a few more days, we started out at home and drove down through Washington and all along the Oregon coast and the tip of northern Cali. Now we are driving back up through Portland for some tax free shopping! I could really get used to no tax! Im writing from my iPhone now so I will give a better update after I get home! Plus I need to read up on everyones blogs, wifi hasn't been that good along the coast!

Sea Creatures

Ive been meaning to show these pictures of some of my latest additions to my jewelry collection, I didnt even realize I was starting a sea creature theme, but now that I think of it Im becoming really drawn to them, especially starfish!
The first picture is of my ring, it has a starfish on one side and a seahorse on the other, I tried to take the photos at a few different angles because the stone changes so many different colours in different light! I still wasnt really able to capture it all.
The second picture is just a little starfish necklace I picked up awhile ago! Perfect for summer
 photos by me =)

Hay guys, it feels like forever since I've posted, probably because it has been so long now! I've been procrastinating but mostly because my computer is barely functioning, I really do not have much patience for slowness and when everything is 'not responding' I give up rather quickly. I have felt so out of the loop not checking up on any of my usual websites or blogs!

I hope everyone is having a good summer so far, our summer has definitely not been the best weatherwise, so I really try to take advantage of any sunny day we have. Im going on a vacation next week to Oregon, its my first time going so I hope we get some good weather! Also hoping for some tax free goodness of shopping, after going to the US a couple of days ago and seeing over $12 deal on some flipflops that I bought and saving over $50 on my nike runners Ive vowed to never buy shoes here that I can buy there because for some reason Canada refuses to give us deals. This drive me crazy!!

Anyways I wanted to post these photos awhile ago but the thought of uploading was just hopeless but for some reason my computer has decided to give me a little breather and function at a rather normal pace. I think Daria has the right idea.. her vacation looks so awesome, plus I love that simple white tank.
photos:studded hearts
Oh and I finally upgraded to the new and improved blogger/poster settings, what the heck was I ever still doing with that old version?

Smooth Sailing

Thought I would try to keep my anxiety down by doing a post before the game starts, the feeling here in Vancouver is already kind of insane, its hard to explain if your not a sports fan or being here right now, but this city is going to be wild if we win game 7 and major depressed if we dont! Cant wait for it to start already, Go Canucks!

Anyways, in keeping with Canucks colours I thought I would share this new nail polish I bought last week. Its from Essies summer collection, called smooth sailing, Im sure a lot of you have seen it in the stores already, but just in case you haven't here it is! Usually im not a super big fan of blues but this one is really pretty! The 2nd photo is from musings in manhattan, she can just take a much better nail photo than I can! IMG_1732Smooth Sailing_1
