So I just got back from having a small birthday dinner with M and K…They took me out for dinner and K bought me $24 worth of instant scratch lotto cards, but I ended up winning $17 only lol. My actual birthday is tomorrow! Yay~

On the weekend Bee took me to dinner at Sultan’s Tent. Mmmm, Moroccan food!

After dinner we headed back to his place for a cake he baked for me! It was the first time he ever baked a cake…It’s shaped like Pac Man! lol.

Presents!

Frigging shopping ban. This dress is hot and I want it. I don’t know in what colour yet though. Black? Creme? Sea blue (shown)?

Going to drag Bee to AA tomorrow so I can try it on and order it online when the ban is over (15% with newsletter signup!)

Let’s not talk about the fact that it costs $58 CAD…lol. Damn.

Wheee. I get the whole house AND the car all to myself for the next 10 days. Mommy and Daddy are gone on vacation! They are off for an Alaskan cruise and 2 days in Victoria, British Columbia. Instructions they left me:

Mom: Sweep at least once. I sweep twice a week minimum, I don’t want a messy house when I get back.
Dad: Vacuum the car please I emptied it out. Oh can you mow the lawn too next weekend?
Mom: I stocked the freezer with premade meals I made for you this week. There is marinated ribs, curry chicken and Korean beef (she means bugolgi). Most meats need a day plus overnight to defrost. Don’t use the rice cooker to make brown rice.
Dad: Remember that it’s garbage day next Friday, don’t drag the recycling bin out. Oh and they’re collecting yard waste that day too, you gotta put the tree branches out.
Mom: Don’t go driving around. Just to and from work.
Dad: I left our itinerary on the bulletin board. Don’t call our room unless it’s a REALLY BIG emergency. It’s FIFTEEN DOLLARS PER MINUTE.

lol. Parents. I’m 23 and this is the first time they’re leaving me home alone.

I skipped out on going to casino night in Niagara with Bee and his buddies tonight to get some much needed rest.

I missed 2.5 days of work earlier this week becuase I got food poisoning! Ugh. Eating habits have gone back to almost normal today.

Damn you Forever21!!

Nautical and lace, what’s not to love? I also bought an oversized white tee, but no pix. Side rant: Who keeps buying up the size smalls!? F21 needs to produce more, I always end up resorting to buying medium…If I can pull it off.

IMG_2083

Assorted Forever 21 accessories. I swear every time I go in that store I end up braving the horrendous change room and cashier lines to try/buy stuff.

So now I feel so frivolous with my hard earned money. Not that I’m in debt or need to save for anything (because I put away one full paycheque a month in just my savings), but I’m going on a one month shopping ban which started June 1!! No clothes/shoes/accessories/cosmetics. Let’s see how it goes.

I leave you with this:

View from Bee’s place after last Saturday’s thunderstorm. The rainbow was so big I couldn’t capture the whole thing in one shot.

My weekend consisted of:

  • A picnic dinner at the beach with Bee on Friday night ❤ (of course I forgot my camera).
  • Being ridiculously dressed to play golf at the driving range (again, no photos) on Saturday.
  • Meeting up with M on Sunday to check out the city’s first Anthropologie store at the Shops at Don Mills (I actually brought my camera but got distracted by pretty things and +$100 cotton sundresses that I would never buy because they are way out of budget).

IMG_2061

I always get suckered into these free card programs. Loving the Minimalist look to this one.
IMG_2063

Hair clips from Antho, so I can finally stop being embarrassed about clipping back my bangs with hairclips from the 7th grade lol.

IMG_2065

Silk scarves M brought me back from her trip to China! ^^ They are the small square kind, perfect for rolling up and tying around my neck.

IMG_2067

Lace cropped top from Aritzia. A good way to layer without overheating during the humid summer.

Quick post because I’m so tired today. Spent all day working the booth at a tradeshow for work.

Some recent buys…

IMG_1959

White leather peep toe slingbacks, Naturalizer from Winner’s.

Red and white striped sundress, H&M.

Japanese paper, The Paper Place. DIY project coming soon.

Off to bed now!

It’s been two days of mostly rainy weather. I say mostly because the sun did make a brief appearance today, but then more rain after.

So to cheer myself up (the rain makes me feel gloomy), I wore my new yellow cardigan. Yay low-quality MacBook Photo Booth photos because I was lazy!

A first peak into my work wear! FYI, that white “tag” on my pants is actually my key card to get in and around the office. I do a lot of creative work (think advertisement writing/design/planning), but it’s a conservative place. So work wear is required to be business casual. Also, no casual Fridays. I bend the rules a bit more when it’s warm…I LIVE in skirts and dresses at work in the Summer. They just make much more fun outfits than grey/black/pinstriped trousers.

Finally the weather is warming up and I’m more in the mood to wear colour.

Buys from Saturday’s shopping day with M:

img_1890

A light yellow Cardigan and a scarf that falls within the same colour scheme from H&M. Shopping with a friend is the best when it comes to those buy one get one free/2 for the price of 1 deals. I don’t need two cardigans, but getting one for around $12 is pretty sweet.

img_1894

More waist belts! This one is from Forever 21.

“So…Does that belt keep your pants (or skirt) up?” – What Bee says often about me wearing belts that cinch at the waist lol.

I bough flip-flops from Old Navy too, but I was too lazy to photograpgh them. Plus there’s nothing special about them, they’re just to match my bathing suit for the beach.

I spent most of Friday cleaning out my closet and dresser. I swear I am such a pack-rat!

img_1853

My closet…I manage to keep almost all of my shoes in here too.

img_1856

My dresser.

img_1860

I have so much clothes that I am even using two drawers from my desk to keep clothes in. One for tanks and the other for tees. I also have a large roll-away storage container under my bed for seasonal stuff storage.

img_1859

Stuff I will be donating to the Salvation Army. Hopefully they’ll find new homes. These piles don’t include some other items that I’m giving to my 16 year old cousin.

It feels good to be able to close m dresser properly again lol.

I also decided to bake some cookies. Bunny shapes for Easter!

img_1862

Bunny cookie complete with face customized by my mom hehe. She’s so funny.

img_1868

Green tea shortbread cookies. They are really good! Recipe is from here.

Easter long weekend! Which means I don’t have to go to work tomorrow!! Time to make my wardrobe less gluttonous.

I love getting mail! Except when it’s my credit card bill…

img_17631

Ah Forever 21. As if M and I didn’t do enough shopping two Saturdays ago; we ordered some stuff online together from Forever 21. Free shipping after $75!

My buys:

img_1775

Rings and earrings to add to my ever-growing collection.

img_1779

A lightweight cardigan/shawl thingy. Perfect for the summer when I freeze indoors because of the air conditioning. Oh and I bought a belt too, but they are so finicky to photograph.
