Loving this blue polish!  I was going to get my nails done at the salon but got really lazy so decided to give this polish a go for the first time and I love the shade!  It’s by wHet (from one of my Ipsy bags) in ‘Facetious’.  Watch by Kate Spade.

I’m leaving tomorrow morning to enjoy sand and sun for a week.  ..oh, and clear skyblue waters. … Omg.

XOXO

If This Doesn’t Make Your Day, I Don’t Know What Will.

Family Day 2015

After having been in Winnipeg since Friday and coming back yesterday morning, it was nice to come back to warmer Edmonton weather and Ray, of course, haha.  I was so so so happy that I was able to come back home during the weekend despite the circumstances.  It was great to see my parents and family again.. Not to mention a lot of my God Parents whom I haven’t seen in over 10 years – it was funny to watch how they reacted when they saw me, lol.  Really glad I was able to find time to spend with my main girls.  Missed them.

Yesterday was a national holiday which, here in Alberta, is designated as Family Day and, in Manitoba, Louis Riel day.   I felt so tired from the flight yesterday that I had planned to sleep for most of the day.. then changed my mind!  There were activities at the park so Ray and I decided to take a few hours of our afternoon checking it out.  It was cold but fun seeing the activities and being with Ray after having been out of town for the weekend.  Wished we went skating but I just wasn’t dressed properly :(

After walking around, we got really hungry so Ray wanted to check out this new little hot dog place on Whyte Avenue called ‘It Dog’.  They have about 8 different hotdogs with various toppings that you can try.  I chose the Bulgogi dog (bottom one) and Ray got the original It Dog (top one).  We also ordered a side of fries and sweet mustard fried chicken.  It was delicious! The chicken was very savoury and the sweet mustard sauce was great flavouring.  They had about 3 other flavours of fried chicken you can order from.  The hotdog was really really good.  I didn’t get to try Ray’s but he said it was very good.  I’d totally come back and try the rest of the hot dogs!

I’m glad I live in ‘Festival City’!

A DAY AND A HALF LEFT UNTIL BAHAMAS!

Just saying.

OOTD (187): Sparkle!

The city is back in its milder winter temperatures which allowed for a break from my parka.  Too bad I’ll be in Winnipeg this weekend where I’m definitely going to need my parka :|

Rocking the 2nd necklace I purchased from Target two days ago.  Love this one and the sparkle!  Such pizzazz to an all-black outfit.

It’s officially my weekend after today — off to Winnipeg tomorrow morning to be with my fam.  Can’t wait to see them and a few friends, despite the circumstances.  Will definitely try and make the best of the 3-day trip.

 EXACTLY ONE MORE WEEK ‘TIL BAHAMAS!!

After all that’s happened within the last two weeks, the trip seems so much more sweeter and well-deserved.  Can’t. Freaking. Wait.

XOXO

OOTD (186): “That Necklace Though”.

wpid-wp-1423671405835.jpg

Like…………. Die.  I’m in love.  It was hard to choose between the two which one I’d wear first.

Necklace:  Target  |  Top:  Le Chateau, extra small  |  Blazer:  Winners, medium  |  Jeggings:  Forever 21, sz 27  |  Flats:  Old Navy, sz 7

I’ve been obsessed with the look of having that one (or 2.. or 3, 4, 5, 6..) statement necklace that makes for an outfit’s pop of color or turns something casual into something super chic.  I found this necklace at Target yesterday along with the other one, which I posted before this one.  I probably spent a good half an hour (or more, it felt like) in the very short aisle (because there was hardly anything left in the entire store anyway) of jewelry.  To be fair, they had a very good selection of necklaces — although some were kinda trashed and jewels had been taken out because of people aimlessly throwing them on to the shelves.   It was really hard to choose which ones to get.  I figured blue is my favourite color so I revolved my decision around that.  I couldn’t be more happier with my choices!  I also purchased a set of bracelets that I’m also excited to wear!

Sadly, all Canadian Target stores are closing within the next few months; however, I can’t complain about liquidation sales :p I’m hoping the accessories last a bit longer in the aisles which would result in even lower prices.  Let’s keep our fingers crossed!

HAPPY HUMP DAY!

XOXO
