Below are several scattered pictures which I just recently found buried in my photo album from my trip to Toronto with Alyssa this past August. So, rather than making several posts on the different days we were there I thought it wise to just throw them all together in one big post. We were only in Toronto for a couple of days but I still occasionally find myself reminiscing about the beautiful city. There was so many wonderful people and the environment everywhere we went was lovely. I learned that in Toronto, there is always something to do and I can’t wait to go back there again.
Note #1: Exploring a city in which you have no idea where anything is, is probably the most fun in the world. – Even though you’re lost 98% of the time.
Note #2: It’s totally okay to take pictures like a crazy tourist (It’s fun and it’s a must to capture the memories).
Note #3: Trips with your best friend = expensive (especially when you’re both shopaholics). But oh so worth it. Cheers!

Today was so beautiful and sunny outside (which is very rare for Nova Scotia in the Spring) that Alyssa and I decided we couldn’t stay in. So being the crazed shopaholics we are, we decided to go to Dartmouth Crossing to check out the outlet shops. We did some walking around and popped into some stores. Here’s what I wore today:
Shirt: Jawbreaking – Necklace: Ardene – Leggings: Winners – Bag: Etsy – Shoes: Spring – Sunglasses: Ardene
The sun and the camera make my hair look really red…. but it’s really not it’s like this faded brownish weird color (I’ll fix that soon)
The shirt I am wearing is one of my favorite shirts I own. It’s from Jawbreaking which is an online boutique founded by a girl named Aly (who designs all the clothes and it’s awesome) which is becoming extremely popular. Anyways, the reason I bought this shirt was because Louis Tomlinson (from One Direction, duh) owned the exact same one and a voice in my head told me “you have to own that”… so I bought it and it is soooo soft, the nicest material. Also I dig the slogan “I came, I saw, I conquered”. Epic.
For those who are wondering about the bag, the one I own is a fake replica of the Celine Micro Luggage Tote. I am 100% obsessed with the real version but unfortunately the real one ranges from $2000-4000… and that’s just not happening. Although my replica is pretty convincing, the real tote has the Celine logo on it and is smooth leather. Here’s what the real bag looks like:

Every holiday, each family has their own traditions, on Easter Sunday when I was growing up we would always go to church, do an Easter egg hunt and eat turkey dinner. I haven’t been home for Easter in years because of school, and let me tell ya, it still feels weird not being home. The last time I was at my mom’s for Easter, we went on an ‘Easter walk’ and walked along some trails in Edmonton. Since then I’ve been in school and I’ve missed my mom’s glorious Easter turkey dinner… which makes me and my stomach very sad. This year (today) I am at my dad’s in Nova Scotia celebrating Easter, and since cooking a turkey is too much for two people, we decided to order a chicken dinner from Swiss Chalet (which was actually very delightful), we bought strawberry rhubarb pie from a local seller who I call ‘The Pie Lady’ (Now if you know me, you know that I love all pie… even if it’s bad it’s still probably good) and we’ve been watching tv… back and forth from movies to hockey. It feels kind of like a normal day to me though… not the same without the house smelling like turkey! Anyways I hope you all had a great Easter spending time with your family and friends.
Here are some of the pictures taken from today, it’s not a lot but it’s all I got… Enjoy!
This is my… ‘staying at home’ unfortunate yet Easter color coordinated outfit. Also since I wasn’t planning on going anywhere, I kept a fresh face. (Pale blue off the shoulder shirt was my best friend Robyn’s, she got it from Aritzia a couple of years ago, coral-colored sweat shorts are from Ardene which was purchased last year).
I even have blue socks on.. in public this would probably be a fashion disaster but I’m at home so it’s allowed. (I have no idea where these socks are from but they are fun and I quite enjoy them)
Nails are in the Easter spirit. (This picture doesn’t really do the nail polish justice, they are much more bright and coral-ly in real life!)
In case anyone is interested in the name of the nail polish
