Quick Chat!

Hello beauties,

Just a quick post here to let you know that I probably won't be posting until next week. I have a midterm and a huge paper due in the next few days so I will need to focus on those.
I did however want to say that I was featured on Fashion Blog Love and that is such an honour for me, to be there along with some of the most fabulous fashion bloggers! So head on over if you want to have a look. They do weakly features and I have found so many amazing blogs through them :)
I will leave you with this song that I have been obsessed with ever since my friend posted it on her face book page. Now I have to go since I don't want to be late for the gym!

Feel So Close- Calvin Harris

Hope you all have a wonderful week :)

Work Out Motivation 2.0

Sports and being active have always been a big part of my life. Actually just being healthy in general has. I try my best to eat healthy because after all we are what we eat and to also keep an active life style. I started gymnastics when I was about 4 years old and continued that until I was 11 or 12 and then took on swimming after that until grade 11. Grade 12 was a busy year for me trying to get the best marks I could to get into my university of choice, so sadly I had to quit the swim team. Over the years I've tried to keep up with swimming but for the past two years that has been a big fail!
I have otherwise tried to keep fit though. I love exercising. It feels so so good and it does great things for me when I am super stressed with school. One thing I really love, other than swimming, is running outdoors. I really hate the treadmill, it's boring and it is very painful for my knees. So I always look forward to when the weather is warmer so I can go out and run. This winter I was planning on running outdoors but I had some issues to fix with my knees so that had to be put aside for a while but now I'm SO ready for spring and warmer weather!
Yesterday I went out and bought some proper shoes, since my old ones were no where near proper and I got yelled at by my physiotherapist haha.

New babies: asics Gel-Nimbus 13 (ohmygosh Harry Potter themed name?!)

I just noticed the Nimbus part for the first time hahaha!
This makes me love these shoes even more now. Yes I am actually that big of a nerd.
ps. I just googled Nimbus and this hilarious post showed up. oh dear.  

And here are some photos and quotes I find inspiring in not just working out but life in general (well minus the first one) :)

Let me know if you enjoy these types of posts or not! I don't want to bore you lovelies, but working out  and being active in general is a passion of mine and that is why I share it here :)

Have a fantastic Sunday.

In Love with LOVE ♥

As I like to share my obsessions with everyone, I thought I would share this one on here! If you couldn't already tell I absolutely love, LOVE dresses from In Love With Fashion. Today when I was browsing their website I fell in love with the four dresses above. They have such beautiful colours that seriously make me want spring and summer. I own two dresses from them so far. I wore one for my birthday party which you can see here and another one which I am hoping to do an outfit post with soon. 
I just really love how easy they are to wear and style!  
Let me know which one is your favourite, or if you have any other favourites from their collection :)

Movie Date Outfit

I know you're all getting sick of this birthday stuff but this will be last of it! So yesterday was the actual day of my birthday and I am now 25....(slight panic attack). I don't know if anyone else felt this way when they turned 25 but for me it is as if I am now suddenly a grown up and have to be way more responsible than before. I'm not saying that I wasn't responsible before but it just some how feels like I've just crossed a big line. Alright enough of that. It sounds like I'm sad I had a birthday but I'm not. I am very grateful that I had another year with my loved ones :)
Since I had a party already and a dinner, yesterday was a pretty relaxing day. Did some blogging and studying and then at night I went to see The Vow with my guy. It was a good movie I would definitely recommend it. It definitely did not make me cry as much as I thought it would, but I did get teary eyed during some scenes.
Here is the outfit I wore, but I had to change into boots after this since a weird mixture of rain and snow started. oh well!

Top: Forever21
Skrit: Forever21
Shoes: Nine West
Bracelets: Lauren Elan and JCrew

Sorry for the quality of these photos. This skirt is really one of my favourites and I wanted to share it with you but weather is not cooperating! And I tried and tried and could not get rid of the red eye. Oh and that first photo is there to just show you how big of a dork I can be haha!

Have an amazing Wednesday!

Work Out Motivation!

 (quotes and photos from Pinterest)
So I've recently started my gym routine again after not being able to for a while as I was doing physio for my knees. It feels amazing to be back but sometimes with school and work it gets tough and all I want to do is curl up in bed. These are some of the images and quotes that keep me going. I post them on different places like tumblr or pinterest or my desktop so that I see them regularly! I also do this with life and motivation related quotes! ok let's just put it out there I LOVE quotes haha.

Birthday Wish List ♥

As you may or may not know my birthday is coming up in about two weeks, so I thought it would be fun to do a birthday wish list post. These are just things that I've been drooling over for a while haha. If you follow me on twitter you'll know that I've put myself on spending ban, which is a bit difficult since all the stores have been bringing in beautiful spring items. And my friends have all got the shopping bug lately so they will ask me to go with them but I've been doing well and just helped them pick stuff out for themselves :) 
So I won't be purchasing any of these, at least this month! but a girl can dream ;)

Have yourselves a wonderful day :)

Outfit of the Day: Going out for Lunch

Sweater: Winners| Skirt: H&M| Leggings: Simons| Boots: Locale| Scarf: H&M| Bracelet: JCrew

Hello lovelies,

This week I took an unintentional break from blogging and reading blogs as I had a million and one things to do for my classes. It was a tough week but even when I was so tired that my whole body hurt I was enjoying it, it was a bit like rising to the challenge and proving to myself that I can do it! ok haha enough with the cheese.
This year I've promised myself that I will try new things in all aspects of life and that goes for food too. I am (well was) the pickiest when it came to food. But I decided that I would give everything a second try and things I hadn't tried I would at least try once. So that is why I went for Indian food yesterday with The Boy and our friends. I had never gone before since my tolerance for spicy food was just about as close to zero as you can get but lately I've been building up a tolerance to it and I loved the food that we had even if it was quite spicy :)
This is the outfit I chose to wear and it was so comfy but a bit more dressed up with the skirt, and suitable for a lunch I think.

Tell me about some of the foods you love! I'd like to try some!
Have a wonderful Sunday :)
