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!

Happy Friday.

Hi Ladies!!
How lovely does it feel that its Friday?
I am starting to truly love having fridays with zero work or school!

but when I have the perfect outfit I feel
100X more confident.

What is your go to item?

Here is one of mine! You can dress it up with a blouse or

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? :)

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

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! :)

One. Twenty. Two Hundred. Five Hundred.

I am just sitting here avoiding my (already massive) amount of homework and...
Wow! I wanted to take a second to say THANK YOU! 
I never thought in a million years I would hit 500 hits. 
I may only have 4 official followers (thank you, thank you, thank you!) 
but to get this far in such a short time,
I know there are others loyal followers out there
(I would love you to 'follow' me!!). :)

My goal is to get to 50 followers :)
Then I will do a special giveaway to thank you guys!
(I promise it will be worth it, so help get me there!!)

Thank you again! 
Please comment and let me know what you want to see, 
or so I can go and thank you on your blog for all the support!!
As well, leave in the comments what you would like to see as a giveaway...
A Taylor Morgan Bracelet? A Stella&Dot necklace? Let me know!

A special thank you goes to my four followers, 
and to Taylor Morgan for enjoying my piece on her and her work! :) 
You guys are amazing!

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 :)
