On lonely nights I start to fade



Forever21 button up, ASOS maxi dress, H&M cuff, Marc by Marc Jacobs cross-body, Urban Planet gladiator sandals

My favourite part of this outfit was the little peekaboo of lower back. My hair is getting quite unbearable in terms of length, but I'm not quite ready to get it cut just yet. I often suffer from 'the grass is greener on the other side' syndrome when it comes to hair..

So I hopped in the cab and I paid my fare


1. My absolute favourite ride, the Swing of the Millennium (I'm pretty sure that's what Wonderland calls it.. no idea what it's actually called, haha).
2. I can totally see someone puking on this ride as they hang upside down.
3. I have fond memories of going down the Euroslide (and the many parking-lot-carnival versions)


4. A portable surfing arena that we frequented for the free Sprite samples.
5. The Strong Man pulling two cars.
6. PN and I actually stayed to watch Rock Man build two rock towers.. The balancing is really possible!
7. Canon stunt.


8. Deep fried butter.
9. Turkey legs.. for $12!
10. Roasted corn.

PN and I have already gone back to the CNE another time since these photos were taken! Alas, we didn't pig out like I wanted to, :(. My parents always insist on us eating something before we go out, even if we're going out specifically to eat, haha. Is this an Asian parent thing? We always end up stuffed before we get there.

What are some foods you guys are looking forward to trying?


PS, I came across this amazing deal in the Shopping Building. Four Sally Hansen Salon Effects nail polish strips for only $10! I've seen these retail at Walmart for $8... and I thought it was a steal finding them at Pacific Mall for only $5. I didn't come across any of the patterned ones, which I know are more popular, but I'll keep searching.

See, I know my destination but I'm just not there

H&M crop top, Wilfred Amelie lace tank, Wilfred Cannes shorts, Marc by Marc Jacobs Kitty St. James Baladine cross-body, H&M sandals

I've attended The Canadian National Exhibition every year for as long as I can remember. It brings back such bittersweet memories.. I love The Ex, but hate that its arrival means the end of summer!

Life's like an hourglass glued to the table



 
Forever21 trapeze tank, H&M cuff, Unbranded bandeau

I've been really digging this side braid hair style. It's a nice change from a typical french braid, plus it lets me experiment with new ways of parting my hair.

In other news, I finished summer school last week! Now I can look forward to working full time, enjoying the CNE, and taking advantage of end of season sales, :).

In dreams you will lose your heartache

H&M blouse

Out of the dozens of photos from the Taste of Danforth, this is the only one I'm in, haha. This poor guy must've been suffocating in there! He couldn't even see in it.. that lady in the flower print top behind us had to direct him whenever someone wanted to take a photo with him.

I was a flight risk with a fear of falling

The Taste of Danforth just occurred this past weekend, and as a self-proclaimed foodie, you can bet your bottom I was there!

Smoked brisket with slaw on a bun

Pulled pork tacos with salsa and sour cream (highlight of the day!)

Baklava

Freshly shucked oysters

Pork souvlaki on a stick

Frozen yogurt with strawberries

 Chilled apple tea

Tiramisu

The weather was blistering hot, and being the fools that we were, we listened to The Weather Network and brought umbrellas with us (PN and I took my younger cousins). We looked like fools carrying them around with us the entire day, although it did rain later on that evening.

On the way back home, we actually managed to catch a ride on one of the new subway trains in Toronto. PN was highly amused.. can you guys tell he's not one for public transit? What a spoiled brat, :).

And I'll be wearing white when I come in to your kingdom

 Forever21 bodysuit, Lucca Couture scallop shorts, Locale satchel, ALDO wedges

These shorts are pure love. Expect to see them in many future posts!

P.S. I'm pretty sure that knees are the ugliest part of the body..

Send me away with the words of a love song

 Staring at Stars crochet dress, Old Navy t-strap sandals

 Dear August,

July's been good to me. I hope you will be too!

Sincerely,
Joanna.

And something told me from that moment it wouldn't be the same


1. Mango froyo with strawberries, mango, blackberries, peaches, and mochi from Yutopia.
2. PN floating with a noodle.
4. The pool.

I wish every weekend could be like this past long weekend, but alas, the real world awaits.
