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

So even though last night was kind of terrible, Saturday night was an amazingly awesome time. This may be a fashion blog, but living in Canada, specifically Vancouver, I dont even know one person who doesnt watch hockey. So Saturday I went downtown to join the, at least 75,000 other Canuck fans to watch game 2. My friends and I watched from a restaurant and joined the party after our super fast overtime win, it's so much fun to be in a huge happy crowd, I must have had 100's of high fives and you feel like you leave with a thousand new friends! Cant wait for the next game because it has to be better than yesterdays! Go Canucks!

I finally took some pictures of some of my fave new jewelry pieces too, so I'll be sure to post those within the next couple of days!

Hello everyone.. so Im still kinda stuck in this rut, not fun. Feeling really uninspired and just not sure what I want to blog about.. so while Im figuring this out, I have a few more really awesome photos:

All the photos I've been seeing make me reallyyy want a vacation, just the thought of wearing shorts is not appealing. Today I saw people in toques and winter jackets, seriously weather pull your crap together!

In the mean time Im looking for a new job which has also been incredibly frustrating.

On a positive note though, Stanley Cup Finals here we come! Go Canucks! If anyone has an extra 1000 dollars laying around or an extra ticket, bring me with you! For now though a friend and I are going to go downtown and join in on the huge crowd parties and watch the game live somewhere! Should be fun, lets just hope we win that game or we're going to be in a really depressed crowd of people!

Living Through Pictures

Since our weather is still crap I have been really enjoying nice sunny, bright pictures. I loved this editorial, definitely very bright and fun!

I cant believe its already May, I've been really lacking in the want to post lately, truthfully I've been feeling quite uninspired lately and my mood has just been down. Im partly blaming the fact that I've seen sun once in maybe two weeks, it's been really depressing weather, and I dont know about you guys but weather plays so much into my emotions. Maybe I need to live somewhere that has more sunshine or just a nice long vacation.

Anyways I saw these photos today and kinda loved them.
