Happy Thursday Ladies!

I hope you are having a lovely day, almost one more day till the weekend!
I have had a busy week filled with skirts and fancy blouses.
This has caused me to be filled with a new desire to buy more clothes,
and more importantly new SHOES!
My future is being filled with a larger need for heels and wedges,
something that I haven't worn regularly until now.

Here is a pair of pumps I have been eyeing. 

What are your favourite pumps?

Dots and Bows.

Good Evening Ladies!
I am just browsing some of my
favourite stores online seeing if I can purchase some new finds,
and I have discovered a new obsession with 
polka dots (particularly black and white/tan) or 
bows of any sort!

What are your favourite pieces?
Any suggestions for me?! :)

Good Afternoon Gals!

I hope your having a fantastic Tuesday!
Yesterday I got the agenda I ordered from Glitzy Glam
I ordered back at the end of August when Elle from AllThatGlitters21 
had a Back to School 15% off sale.
Its my last year I feel like I can get away with something 
fun like this before I enter the business world!
I plan on still having something cute, maybe a Kate Spade 
agenda will be in my near future? :)

To help keep myself organized, I assign a colour for each subject.
This way I don't have to keep writing the class name and 
taking up valuable space! :)
To keep my personal life on track I write my work schedule in red
and any personal activities in pencil because they
are most likely to change or alter slightly.

Here are some photos below! Enjoy!

Fall Breeze.

Afternoon Ladies!
Fall has come in to my town with full force.
It has been 10C with cold breezes all day, and all I can say
is my scarves are my best friend!

I like to pair my scarves with a nice blouse and some skinny black pants, 
or tucked into a sweater with jeans.

Here are some must have scarves! 
What are yours? Share your links below!

p.s. I just noticed they are mainly pink/red...
can you tell what my favourite colour is? :)

Hot Chocolate and New Clothes.

Good Afternoon Ladies!
Today is a chilly one where I live, it has done a 15C drop in 
temperature from Saturday to today. I don't have class till 6pm tonight 
so Ive been sitting on my bed getting the work I need to done...
I have a list I need to do, but I can't help but read some
fantastic blogs (such as: Happily Grey or Running on Happiness )
Throughout my journey through these lovely blogs,
I have found some fantastic clothes!

I have fallen in love with this jumper! Unfortunately it 
is only available in a size 2 sizes too big!!! I am crossing my fingers it
goes back in stock.

Fall Finds.

Hi Ladies!

I've been searching for some fantastic warm, but fashionable
cardigans and jumpers to help bring me into this lovely fall weather.
I have decided that my goal this year was to search the
sale racks and see if I can find some fantastic deals.

Here is my finds I want to share with you (some are even on sale!!!!) 

I found this chambray shirt and had to share... Its on a fantastic sale!

Cloudy Sunday.

Good Afternoon Ladies!
My Sunday has been filled with lazy coffee and work to be done.
I went through recruitment yesterday for a position that would start either in
May or September 2013! Its crazy that they plan so far ahead. 
So I have spent my day reviewing over 15 ads and seeing what companies 
I want to apply to and editing my cover letter/resume.

I decided to take a little break and do some local shopping.
I didn't find any clothes (boo!) but I found some makeup/nail polish!
Here is an Instahaul :)

Essie Nail Polish in Pilates Hottie (Lilac-grey) and Recessionista (deep maroon)
Maybelline Clear Mascara (Fantastic Brow Gel!)
Sally Hansen Fine Tip Nail Polish

Happy Sunday :)

Polished and Comfy.

I have just completed my first week of school!
I don't have class Friday's so my weekend starts a day early,
I definitely can't complain about that.

For the first day of classes, I went for something comfy but put together.
It was a little chilly that day and left all my jackets in my boyfriends car,
so I went with a blazer. I feel like everything looks polished with a blazer.

Happy Thursday Ladies! :)

Back to School.

Today was my first day back for my last year of school!!
It was a nice day, my classes run from 8-1230 (3 classes) and
it looks like I have fantastic profs!
I only bought 3 of my textbooks and they were $600. Two of my
classes start next week so I am waiting to buy those then.

Here are some pictures of my trip this past weekend. 
We just went to a local town to get away (me and the hubby)

The shirt is a blush lace top from Forever 21 ages ago and
the skirt is just a standard blackbandage skirt from Dynamite. :)
I paired a leopard belt from H&M to give the look a put together feel
and just basic black pumps to keep it casual and comfortable.
My phone case is by Kate Spade.

What did you wear for your first day back?
And if your not in school what did you wear back after a labour day?
Any one out there wearing white?
Let me know in the comments below!

Hi ladies!
I can't even begin to explain what my past few weeks have been like!
On August 22 I finished my last final of summer classes (YAY!)!!
Since then I have been running around doing everything between 
catching up with friends Ive had to ignore the past four months, working nonstop,
planning my next week and getting everything I need, as well planning recruitment.
I am a Bachelor of Commerce student heading into my LAST year of my degree! 
As part of my degree, I go through recruitment the fall before my graduation 
where potential employers will hire you a year in advance.
Next friday I go through this recruitment. It is an all day event where
you mingle with firms, get to know who you like and such. 
Following that you apply to the firms. 
You are competing with approx. 2000 other students
for what seems like no jobs. Its stressful! 
I spent the past week meeting with firms ahead of time and having individuals
 read through my resume and such. GAH! 

Since I bought my first grown up suit from Banana Republic the other day,
Ive been trying to find some cute business clothes 
that can be transferred into my daily life... I am DYING for the ASOS sweater,
however as a starving student, I cannot afford +$100 on it... One day soon :)

Hey Ladies!

I can't believe where this semester or even summer has
gone! I can't wait to been done and have two weeks off 
before I start my senior year (4th year) of university!
I plan on being the ultimate 4th year and do the grad photos, events and all!

Anyways, have a fab Saturday!

Colour Blocking.

Hey Loves!
I won't get a chance to photograph my outfit today, 
but I wanted to share with you what I did!

I wanted to take advantage of some new clothes and trends!
I took a sheer emerald green button blouse, 
and tucked it in the front of a blue patchwork
skirt I got from American Eagle when I was in high school.
I let the back hang out to give it a more relaxed, but put together look!
I am loving my outfit today!
I wish I didnt have to go to school (aka backpack) because
I would pair my new mustard yellow purse with this! Too much? hehe.

What did you wear today :)


Here is the blouse I am wearing... from my recent Vegas trip :)

Wednesday, August 8, 2012


As some of you might know, I got the pleasure to go to Vegas between semesters!
It was a fantastic trip, and I would go again in a heart beat. It was 43C and blue skies the entire
time we were there, it was fantastic!!!
We went over the Canada Day long weekend, 
for the extra bonus we got to hit all of the 4th of July Sales!!
The Kate Spade outlet was even 50% off!!! 
I fancied myself with a new wallet :)
My outfits aren't anything special, coming from Canada
I wasn't used to weather like that!

Here are some pictures from our trip!

Taylor Morgan Designs.

I wanted to share one of my favourite bloggers!

I just read her latest post while drinking my morning coffee 
and I fell even more for her!
She like me, a starving student in college just trying to
make her dreams come true. 
However, I have the benefit of living at home to help cut down my costs, 
however I know she isn't given that ability. 
She is a VERY TALENTED FIT student in NYC!! 
She makes bracelets, veils, and other spectacular items! 
So please go check out her blog and her etsy store and show her some support. 
Even a small comment goes a long way!

Please go check her out, and show her some love! 
Let her know I sent you :)

Here are a few of her pieces from her etsy store.

You Can Never Have Too Many..

I am graduating in the spring and even though it is still 8 months away, 
I have already begun shopping for it! I plan on spoiling myself with a 
fancy new Kate Spade / Marc Jacobs / Tory Burch Purse... I haven't decided.. 
I have paid my way through my entire education myself so I have been the definition 
of a starving student. Its nice to be graduating with no debt so why not celebrate! 

What are your must have purses? Any dream splurges? Let me know!

I have two midterms this week so I will probably be MIA until Friday.
Summer classes are just flying by! Two more weeks and then a break
before I start my senior year!! Can not wait!

Chat soon!

Hi All!
Sorry to have left you stranded.
I am taking summer classes in hopes of graduating next year (YAY!)
But I started a new class yesterday and I already have a midterm this week.
Here is my outfit from yesterday. 
It was 30C so I needed something put together, yet still casual.

Sunday Delights.

WOW! Where has this weekend gone??
I spent most of this past weekend working a total of 22 hrs in 3 days
(too much for a weekend if you ask me!)... 
so I didn't have a whole lot of free time.

I spent Saturday night on a nice date with my man.
We went to a VIP theatre that is near the town where I am from to see the new batman movie.
What is a VIP theatre? ITS AMAZING!
You get reserved seats, waiters even bring you food and you get to sit in 
recliners with three times the amount of leg room a normal theatre has! So much fun!

Other than that, it was my towns fair this weekend so a few
friends went to that tonight. 
It was nice to relax and enjoy some nice weather! 

So I will leave you with that, I apologize for the smaller blog!
I will have something else up tomorrow! 

Until then...

I went to Vegas a few weeks back for my 21st birthday 
and HAD to hit the outlet malls while I was there. 
Needless to say I did some damage! 
One of my favourite purchases was a pair of rainbow flats in a 
chevron print by Steve Madden! 
They are by far one of the most comfortable pair
of flats I own!

July 25 Hits and BAM. Time to Prepare for Fall.

Yesterday I saw my very first back to school commercial this year.. EEK! 
Along with that, it seemed that some of my favourite stores began releasing their fall collections! 
This seems crazy to me. I am taking summer classes so I can graduate in April (YAY 9 months!)...
 so my summer has just flown by. 
I must admit though, I love the heat of summer but fall is one of my favourite seasons. 
The layers of clothes, the rich colours, but I must admit... I am a sucker for back to school shopping of any kind... clothes, makeup or stationary (University Student in me! haha) 
So here are just a few things I have started to lust over...

What are some of yours?? 

Thanks for Reading!
