She said I don't spend time like I really should

I love wearing white. It's such a crisp colour, and it instantly makes you look tan. Plus the back of this shirt definitely upped the interest factor! Too bad I can't seem to stay clean for the life of me (embarrassing at this age, I know). As soon as I made it home, I managed to catapult a peeled peach all over the front.

What I'm wearing: Mendocino open-back tank, Forever21 lace bodysuit & shorts, ALDO bracelets & wedges, Michael Kors Calista satchel

Amber is the colour of your energy

1. Rocky Road ice cream in a white chocolate waffle cone from Marble Slab.
2. Dipping my toes in a pool.
3. Packing Jelly Bellies for a movie date.

Simple summer pleasures.

Don't you hear that heart beat coming your way

Happy Father's day to all the loving dads out there!

Oh dream maker, you heart breaker

Just a series of photos from the day that PN and I spent in the Distillery District. It wasn't the most amazing day in terms of weather, but it was still a fun experience that included PN's first time on a streetcar (yes, my boyfriend is a snob, I know!)

There's no beginning and there is no end

This bodysuit was the best $15 I've ever spent! It's the perfect layering piece. I especially love the lace against the 'hardness' of the faux suede and the ripped jeans. I've been trying to wear these Wonder Woman cuffs as often as I can. They don't fit my tiny wrists, so I wear these a little higher up on my forearms.

FYI, Coby is PN's dog. I'm sure you guys have seen him on previous posts before. He's a 9 year old Pomeranian who is camera shy, as you can clearly see by all the butt pictures. As soon as the camera is eye level, this little rascal turns around and refuses to turn back until we start walking again.

What I'm wearing: H&M faux suede cropped tee & cuffs, Forever21 knit cardigan & bodysuit, American Eagle ripped skinnies, Tory Burch Reva flats

See you had a lot of crooks tryna steal your heart

Here's a funny little video of the shenanigans that PN and I can get up to.. Excuse the poor quality, it looked perfectly fine on my iPhone! A family BBQ turned into a concert. The reason why the video is so shaky is because we were actually bobbing our heads to the beat, LOL.

I wanted to say a huge thank you to all those who commented with suggestions for my blog. As you can see, I've already taken some of your advice and have changed things up a little. I was also a little sneaky and snuck in a contest into this post, which greatly reduced the number of entries (not that I mind). I used a random number generator for the results. Congratulations to a, from a, says:. I couldn't find a first name, but I'm sure you'll recognize yourself, haha. Send me an email with your full name and shipping address!

In this California king bed we're ten thousand miles apart

My outfit from the Unionville festival. A little risque for a breezy day, I must admit.. Next time, nipple covers will be used, haha. Lesson learned!

Arm in arm, dusk to dawn with the curtains drawn

PN and I attended the Unionville Festival this past weekend. The weather was absolutely amazing (aka really hot). I went in with an open mind, but I was slightly disappointed with how little there was to actually do there. There were tons of food stalls, and a few face painting stations for the younger kids. I didn't really explore the shops, since I wasn't interested in actually purchasing anything. It was still a fun experience.

They had a Farmer's Market going on, which meant tons of stalls with fresh fruit and veggies. They had other stalls selling smoked meats, and even honey!

They had a takoyaki stall, which was extremely popular.  It's basically a batter ball with octopus in the center. It was a little too soft in the centre for my liking, but still pretty good. It wasn't very filling, so we promptly scarfed a hot dog after this.

Cute puppies! I think they were for sale, because I heard a girl say 'they're selling them for $50!' but I really have no idea if she was actually talking about the dogs. There were about five (including the mom) of them running around, and we got to hold and pet them. They were so calm and quiet, which was quite a surprise since people were manhandling them all day. None of them ever barked.

The streets were pretty packed with tons of families, and plenty of dogs. We saw this cool dog that had one brown eye and one blue eye. It looked like a robot! We also passed by a Great Dane that was up to my chest (standing on all four paws). HUGE. I swear the kids of that family probably ride him every day.

One final picture of a pond nearby. I love this function on the Panasonic. No Photoshop or editing necessary! 

I love attending street festivals/carnivals. I really enjoy people watching, eating food from a stall, and just enjoying the hustle bustle of a crowd around me without being cooped up in a mall of some sort. What about you guys? Do you like to attend these kinds of street festivals, or do you get easily annoyed by all the people?

Together we'll live forever, we found that youth fountain

So the first weekend in June marked yet another Estee Lauder warehouse sale. I got to go on the 3rd, which was the Saturday. The products this time around were a lot better than what I've previously seen on Sundays, but I wasn't tempted to spend much. They had items from the To the Beach collection, Liberty of London, In the Groove, and they even had a big bounce shadow there!

The last two photos were the charity package and the free gift, respectively. I didn't do swatches, because I plan on putting them in my stockpile of goodies for future giveaways, :).

The best thing that I found at the sale were the sample jars of Clinique's moisture surge! They were in the $4 bin, and I actually picked up six (although three will be going to my cousin). I kind of regret not getting more.. What a good deal! They also had MAC's complete comfort cream for only $20. I've been dying to try this moisturizer out (the texture was amazing), but I decided to put it back because I'm only 1/4 of the way through my jar of moisturelush cream, which has been discontinued (I think). I felt some regret as soon as I left the sale, but there's always next time.

Did anyone else attend the sale? I'd love to know what you picked up!
