Oh gravity is working against me

Hello lovelies,
How has everyone's week been so far? Mine has been on the sad side. My grandfather is very sick and I just really wish that I could go to Iran and visit him right now but I can't. My mom is however leaving to be with him next week and that makes me sad too I'm going to miss my mama. I wasn't really feeling up to blogging but my mom kinda pushed me to do it so that I won't be just sitting around moping.
Anyway I had some errands to run with my mom so here's what I wore. This outfit is actually something totally different for me but I find that being involved in blogging and reading other fashion blogs has pushed me to try new things and I'm loving it :)

Top: given to me by mom's friend
Tank: H&M
Shorts: forever21 jeans cut into shorts by me
Tights: Simons
Flats: Steve Madden
Purse: Nine West

What do you think of this outfit? 
Have a wonderful Thursday!

love you like a love song

Hello lovebugs,

How is everyone's Monday so far? mine was nice and relaxing. Went downtown with my mama to run some errands and some gift shopping but ended up with a cute skirt for me too. I can't help it when I'm put in the middle of all the gorgeous clothes.
Recently I've been working on some fun little projects. As you all know friendship bracelets are back...yup! I used to love those and would make them all them time and then I grew up so that all stopped. When I heard they were back I got so excited but then I checked the price for some of them online and my jaw dropped, too too expensive.
So I paid a little visit to a Michaels Crafts store and bought myself the material I would need and then started on all the fun!
Here's the outfit I was wearing today and the bracelets I made too!

T-shirt: Urban planet
Tank: forever21
Skirt: Zara
Shoes: Zara
Sunglasses: RayBan Folding Wayfarer
Bracelets: the middle one is American Eagle and the other two are made by me :)
Let me know what you think of the bracelets!

Have a lovely Tuesday

NOTD: Leopard Print Obsession

Hello lovelies,

If you follow me on twitter, you would have heard me complain about not being able to wear nail polish because of my clinical placement. But yesterday was my last day (yay!) so now I'm free to wear all the bright nail polish that I want :)
Today I got out my favorite colours and this is what the end result looks like!

What I used:
For Audrey by China Glaze
Rage by Orly
and a black nail polish for the "leopard"print.

I know the leopard print doesn't look perfect as it was my first time trying this but I've wanted to do this for a very long time so I was determined haha. What do you think of this look?

Have a lovely Saturday!

you're the apple to my pie

Hello lovelies,

I'm sorry it's been a whole week since my last post, I haven't been a good blogger. I haven't been feeling very well for a few days so I'm not really feeling up to taking photos which wouldn't look so great any way. So instead today I'm going to introduce to you The Boy aka Karan.

How handsome is he! 

I wasn't feeling well last night so he dropped by with my favorite chocolates isn't that just sweet :) We just cuddled and watched one of my favorite shows So You Think You Can Dance! Thanks babe, it was exactly what I needed ;)

Have a lovely Thursday :)

Oh you fancy huh

Hello lovelies,

As yesterday was just a work day and I was tired and cold I didn't really get an outfit photo so instead I thought I would tell you about my favorite make up items.  Hope you enjoy the post and I will try and do a skin care one as well.

♥ Perfume: Daisy by Marc Jacobs. Many of you already know about this and how it smells but I just love that it's a light fresh smell that I can wear during the day.

♥Tinted Moisturizer: Clinique moisture surge tinted moisturizer. I don't really like wearing foundation during the summer so this is the perfect replacement for it. It has rather nice coverage for a tinted moisturizer and you can build up from a light to medium coverage if you like. I'm in the shade 02. 

♥Mascara: Loreal Voluminous Million Lashes. I had been using Lash Blast by Cover Girl for about a year but then I heard about this mascara and how great it was so I decided to give it a try and I love it. It gives volume and length without clumping. I still love my Lash Blast too though ;)

♥Eyeliner: Blacktrack fluid line from MAC. I am terrible with liquid eyeliners and even pencil (although I have gotten better with that) so when I tried this gel eyeliner and saw how easy it made things I was sold. 

♥Lip Gloss: Revlon ColorBurst in the shade Hot pink. I mentioned this in a previous post. This color is gorgeous for the summer. 

♥Blush: Well Dressed by MAC. I heard so many beauty gurus on YouTube talk about this blush, specially Tanya Burr so I finally caved and got it a couple of weeks ago and have not used any other blush since. It's a light, slightly frosty cooler pink and it looks good on pale skin and also on tanned skin.

♥Eye Shadows: Paradisco (left), Sable (right)
I love these eyeshadows. Paradisco is a pretty frosty peach color and I'm sure most of you know what Sable looks like but it is a plum/brown colour with bronze glitter and it makes for a great crease color.  

♥Paint Pot: Bare Study. This is paint pot is a champagne/ gold color. I use it on its own or as a base. 

What are some of your favorite beauty items?

Hope you all have a fabulous Wednesday :)

we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.

Hello lovelies,

How is everyone's weekend so far? mine has been great! Friday night we went out with a group of friends to watch the Canucks vs. Bruins game and the the Canucks won! this is all very exciting for us Canadians :) It was a great night. Saturday The Boy and I went to see the Alice's Adventures in Wonderland ballet at the Four Seasons Centre for the performing arts. He bought me the tickets for my birthday back in February.

Here's the poster for it. I won't go in too much detail because I wouldn't want to ruin it for anyone that will be going to see the performance. It was quiet the show though. They were very creative with the props and technology to recreate the quirky moments in the story. The story was a bit different but the main concept was the same and the style was more modern than the classic style of the dance. I myself do prefer the more classic style (Swan Lake is the most magical and my obsession) but I did really enjoy this one also. If you're reading this, thank you babe!

Here's the outfit I wore for the night!

Dress: forever21(the belt came with the dress)
Shoes: Nine West
Purse: Guess

And this was my makeup! I love doing neutral eye makeup with my fave e/s Sable from MAC :)

Have a lovely Sunday!

If it's not like the movies

Hello lovelies,

How is everyone's week so far? It's wednesday so we have made it mid-week yay! To be honest I wasn't really feeling this week lol I have no idea why but I had been feeling kind of off until yesterday. The Boy and I went to see the Hang over: part II and it was HILARIOUS omg I laughed so much I'm glad that the second one didn't disappoint compared to the first one like some other movies...not gonna name any names *cough* Matrix*cough*....anywho.
Before watching the movie we went to a restaurant and sat at the patio and the sun was out and it was a nice hot day and when it came to ordering all I could remember was seeing this photo of the lovely miss Caitlin on her blog. So naturally I ordered a burger and let me tell you it was so so so good.

Just looking at it is making me hungry again!

I had time to take some photos of what I was wearing and here they are...

Top: f21 (in love with the back of this top)
Shorts: Abercrombie &fitch
Belt: H&M
Purse: Danier Leather
Shoes: Spring

And this is what my face looked like I just wanted to show you my currently favourite lipgloss from Revlon in the color Hot Pink, I'm in love with it and it's the perfect color for the summer! (it's much brighter than it looks in the photo actually)

Have a great wednesday :)

Like a walk in the park

Hello lovelies,

Today I indulged in my favorite summer activity again; a walk in the park with The Boy while enjoying an ice cream cone :) I will never get tired of that haha.
I decided to wear the romper I mentioned buying in my last post. I've been on the hunt for a romper for some time and I found one at Urban Behavior and I'm quiet happy with it. It is actually very comfortable too so I want to find even more of these!
p.s. The photos were taken by The Boy ♥ and my mom :)

Romper: Urban Behavior
Shoes: Steve Madden
Purse: Danier Leather
Bracelets: American Eagle 

Have a great monday!

I got a pocket, got a pocketful of sunshine

Hello lovelies,
How was everyone's week? Mine was alright, rather uneventful except for tuesday. The weather was gorgeous that day filled with sunshine and it was hot like a summer's day so I met up with The Boy after work and we walked around downtown. We got ice cream and strolled all the way to harbour front.
That is one of my favourite things to do in the summer, walk around while enjoying an ice cream and it has to be an ice cream cone! it's not the same without the cone lol.
At harbour front we made our way to one of the pubs there and had an amazing appetizer (in my opinion) with drinks in the patio. It was a lovely day :)
Thursday I had a random day off so I slept in and then got ready for some shopping with my mom and I finally found a romper! I had been looking for one for a year not to say that there weren't any all this time but I don't like the ones that are really short and also all open at the top so finding one that I liked was a challenge. I'll post an outfit with the romper once we get some nice weather again (there's a rainstorm right now).
On thursday I also got my old digital camera to somewhat of a working state so I asked my mom to take some pictures of my outfit. The photos aren't that great but they're OK! I'll try and improve them even more :)

Top: H&M
Tights: Urban Behavior
Jean Jacket: Garage
Flats: Aldo
Purse: Danier Leather

Hope you all have a great weekend :)
