Hi guys!

I’ve fallen head over heels in love with this bodysuit/skirt combo ever since I picked it up a few weeks ago. I’ve been waiting for a perfect warm spring day to wear it, and thankfully Wednesday was gorgeous so I was able to bust it out! The whole outfit looks really pretty and feminine, perfect for a little lunch date downtown, and that’s exactly what Peter and I did on Wednesday afternoon. He had the day off because his truck was in for repairs so we took advantage of the perfect weather and snapped some pictures for the blog and then went for lunch!

My sickness (flu? strep throat?) is finally 100% gone!! So I’m excited to be able to enjoy this weekend without being cooped up in the house. I’m all healed up just in time for our City’s big music festival, its running this weekend and the next so I’m thrilled I’ll actually be able to attend!

Do you guys have any exciting plans coming up? I’d love to hear about it. Let me know in the comments!

Thanks for stopping by ❤

Birthday Haul!

Hey guys!

It’s been a week since you’ve heard from me, I skipped my Wednesday and Friday posts last week for my birthday. So today’s post is a round up of everything I bought for myself on my birthday & what Peter gave me as a gift! But let me start off by saying I had the worst luck ever on my actual birthday (last Thursday) and my car had an electrical fire as we were driving home from Toronto..so I ended up with a huge tow truck bill as my main birthday present…which kind of put a damper on things but my birthday celebration on Friday night made up for it.

Okay lets jump into the good stuff, first up is makeup!

I always buy fresh makeup the day before my birthday, because lets face it… the first application with new makeup is magical to say the least.. and what better day to feel that magic than on my birthday!

Makeup details – Smashbox Primer Set / Rimmel Lipstick (by Kate) *in shade 45/ Covergirl Kity Kat Matte Lipstick *in shade Pink Paws / NYX Concealer / Telescope Mascara / NYX Matte Lip Lingerie *in shade Babydoll/

img_5222On my actual Birthday Peter took me to the new Nordstrom in Toronto because we finally got one here! That was my one birthday request, but surprisingly I didn’t find much to buy that I thought was worth the price.

What I did leave with was:  Sunnies *in rose gold / Sugarfina Bubble Bears /

and….

 Scarf /

This gorgeous blanket scarf! Its the perfect size for feeling extra cozy in the fall, and is a really gorgeous gray/olive colour.

Hat / Leggings /

Next stop was to the GAP and I fell in love with this adorable pink pom pom hat! I thought it would be so cute with a leather jacket.. the perfect girly/edgy combo.

Then to Old Navy for my favorite leggings, these are high rise and soooo flattering, they look and feel like Lulu Lemon leggings but a fraction of the price!

…..and last but not least Peter’s gift to me from my Birthday Wishlist post!

Thanks so much for reading!

My Fall Morning Routine!

img_5076

Good morning, Friends!

Today I’m trying something a little different, and sharing how a typical fall morning looks through my eyes. I always enjoy reading ‘routine’ posts from my favorite bloggers so I thought I would do my own! If you’ve read my blog before, you’d probably know that fall is my favorite season. There’s just something about the crisp air, and gorgeous tree colours that gives me a little extra energy to stay motivated and get things done. Work, school, gym, hobbies,  I seem to have energy for it all in the fall! Here’s what a typical morning working from home looks like for me:

7:50 am: My first alarm goes off, I turn it off

7:55 am: My Second alarm goes off, I turn it off

8 am: Third alarm goes off and I actually wake up this time (I’m totally one of those people who sets like 5 alarms before they need to wake up lol!) I lay in bed for 10 – 15 minutes with my phone, catching up on any notifications I may have gotten over night. This helps ease me into actually getting out of bed after waking up!

8:15 am: I make a tea (English breakfast) and my favorite porridge with brown sugar and cinnamon. I love eating porridge in the fall and winter because it’s so warm and filling, and I always find myself craving spices like cinnamon in the cooler months.

8:25 am: I schedule my blog posts to publish at 6am each morning, so as I eat my breakfast and enjoy my tea I will proofread my post over again, check how well it’s preforming, and email or comment back to anyone who wrote to me.

8:50 am: I like to take 10 minutes each morning and plan out what I need to get done that day. This is when I pull out my Kate Spade notebook and start my to-do list!

9 am: If I’m taking blog pictures that day I will shower and start getting my outfits steamed and ready for my shoot /// If I’m writing beauty or lifestyle posts that day I’ll go to the gym for an hour, and shower, before I get started on that.

10:30/11 am:  It’s time to do my makeup and get dressed for the day!

12 noon: By now I’ve got a good grip on my day and am ready to conquer my to-do list and get blog posts ready!

 

And that’s what a typical fall morning looks like for me.
