It's sick that all these battles are what keeps me satisfied

1. The ingredients.
2. The concoction.
3. The machine.
4. How I spent my afternoon.

You'll always be my hero even though you've lost your mind

From L to R: Leanne, myself, Fiona, Vo, Sandy, Jen

Had an amazing night with these lovely ladies that involved a lot of raw oysters and laughs. No matter how much time lapses in between date nights with the girls, it always feel as if we just saw each other last week. No awkward silences or small talk needed here!

It's been a long time since I used my point and shoot for an outfit photo.. so please ignore the random plastic bag and miscellaneous background items, haha.  Hope every enjoys the rest of their weekend!

What I'm wearing: Kimchi paper bag trousers (these have been getting a lot of love lately, haha), Silence & Noise silk blouse, ALDO pumps, pearl necklace from Phillipines

I'm gonna burn for you, you're gonna melt for me

The best place to go to when you want to kill time is Pacific Mall.  My favourite beef ball stall closed down, so PN and I settled for some freshly made egg waffle.  We also finally got to try the new fro-yo stall, called Yutopia.  It's basically a 'build your own' type of place.  The flavours they had were original tart, chocolate, taro, and strawberry cheesecake. They also had an assortment of different toppings that you can add yourself, and you pay by the ounce.  I seriously love coming to this place with no expectations in mind and just exploring every aisle.

What I'm wearing: Forever21 floral bodysuit, Urban Outfitters paperbag trousers, American Apparel cardigan, See by Chloe flats, H&M clutch

Bless your soul, you've got your head in the clouds

The supposed storm we were supposed to have in Toronto disappeared, and we were left with amazingly warm weather. PN and I took advantage and headed downtown to explore Queen Street, and get our grub on (of course).

1. Godiva truffles in pistachio, strawberry, almond crunch, and mint chocolate.
2. Blush Berry 'blush' frozen yogurt with strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, mochi & mango boba
3. Some terrible orange beer that I can't remember the name of at The Black Bull.

What I'm wearing: H&M scarf as a headband, crochet dress, & nude slip, Forever21 purse and belt

My hands, there were strong, but my knees were far too weak

These photos seriously crack me up, LOL. Pictures two and three are the difference between a PN jump and a JL jump, haha. SO MUCH EFFORT.

What I'm wearing: H&M cropped sweater and sandals, Forever21 lace bodysuit, belt & shorts

I had no idea of the state we were in

What I'm wearing: Zara leather jacket and t-shirt, H&M bow belt & sandals, Forever21 maxi dress as skirt, Marc by Marc Jacobs clutch, bracelets from Cuba and House of Harlow

PN and I had a fabulous midweek date, which we spent outdoors exploring Toogood Pond. Even though it was a cloudy day, there were other families there taking photos, feeding the ducks, and generally exploring. I should've known that the warm weather was too good to be true.. it's supposed to rain for the next 8 days, :(.

She made your heart melt, but you're cold to the core

What I'm wearing: Forever21 tank, belt & rings, American Apparel tulip skirt, ASOS heart tights, Le Chateau pumps, Costa Blanca cardigan

My first attempt at colour blocking! Not as hard as I thought it would be.. I've been really attracted to bright colours lately, and it doesn't help my poor wallet that great pieces have been popping up everywhere. What's your favourite bright colour to wear?

If this isn't love, then what is?

What I'm wearing: Zara jacket & cardigan, Forever21 white tee, scalloped skirt & braided belt, ASOS OTK socks, ALDO wedges, House of Harlow tribal triangle necklace

Had an amazing date day with PN that involved a lot of food, Monopoly Deal, and glow in the dark mini-golf.  Toronto's been having amazing weather as of late, and I hope this warm streak continues.  This skirt has been receiving some major love in the blogosphere, so I was excited when it came back in stock on the Forever21 website... Too bad it doesn't fit, :(.  I had to cinch the waist in with a belt, and for some reason the lining is longer then the skirt itself!  I purchased this in the navy colour as well, so it's safe to say the darker colour will be making a trip back to the store.

P.S., happy Mother's day to all!

Should've known right from the start you'd go and break my heart

Say hello to my latest House of Harlow acquisitions:

I've been pleasantly surprised by Nicole Richie's House of Harlow 1960 pieces, and I've started collecting them over a year ago. While I don't love every single piece, I like enough of them that I always check out their counter when I'm at Holt Renfrew. These are a bit pricey for costume jewelry, but the gold plated classic pieces are definitely worth investing in.

My recommendations (which I also own, haha) if you're looking to invest in a great beginner statement piece:

These pieces are wildly popular. If you ever see these in store and are debating over whether or not to purchase, make up your mind fast! I've only ever seen each of these pieces once in store, and I purchased them right away. A week later, they were sold out, which gave me a mental 'good job!' for buying them when I did, haha.

What are some of your favourites from her line?

It's gonna be an empty road without me right here

I took advantage of Holt Renfrew's promotion (25% of your purchase on a gift card) and walked away with this deliciously cute new clutch/messenger style bag. It's the Marc by Marc Jacobs Kitty St. James clutch. While it wasn't what I was initially looking for, I knew I would regret if I didn't leave with it.  I also left with another item that my dear PN gifted me, which I tweeted about here.

Here's a closer look at the t-shirt I'm wearing. It's currently sold out at Hide & Seek, but all proceeds from the sale of this shirt are donated to Japan earthquake/tsunami relief funds.
