summer always makes me crave salads, fruits, water and healthy things like that...
lately, i've been trying to workout and be healthier because it really does make me feel SO much better. i've actually never really done yoga before, so im going to try that tomorrow, at my gym! 

so, to switch things up a bit, i've decided to show you guys some healthy-living inspiration...

if anyone knows of any healthy meals, they are more than welcome to share them! i don't know many... haha

blast from the past

Just a few of my favorite pictures/outfit shots from the last year/two years. 
my camera somehow stopped working again... just my luck... i think it's from all the sand that got in it at wasaga... and i have yet to meet someone who knows how to fix a camera (apparently the guys in Henry's don't know how...?)

so i've just been reminiscing of the past, going through my old albums...


blame it on the sprite.

Went out thursday and friday night. Unfortunately, once again, my camera is broken. I took it to wasaga, sand attacked us, and apparently found the time to ruin my camera, as well. I took these shots of my thursday night outfit, before the cam broke. 

My very first tie dye experience: 
We went to dance cave; anyone who has been there knows how dirty but FUN it is. i love it. and it was so empty, but we learned that as long as youre with some crazy fun people, and have some motley crue, abba, and a congo line, it doesn't really matter who else is there. haha 
Tshirt- H&M/tie dyed by me
Lace tank- vintage
Shoes- payless 

Friday, we went to this club/lounge called Shallow Groove, because my friend was dj'ing there. It was a really fun night! And my friend was surprisingly good... haha They had free vodka drinks from 11-1115 and 1-115, which also helped make it fun... we saw some guy get escorted out in what looked like a painful headlock. then we finished off the night with some chinese food. mmmm

Dress- Forever21
 Belt- vintage/borrowed from my friend
Shoes- same as with tie dye outfit 
Watch- stolen from my dad
Bag (although you can't see it)- from Argentina

I always hate coming back to stouffville after the weekend in toronto. There's always something to do downtown, especially since my friends live so close to the city, whereas I'm so far, in stouffville... 

On another note, my friend is in a makeup program at school and she's doing an airbrushing assignment this weekend with me! I'm pretty excited and hopefully she'll send me some of the pictures once she's done so I can post a couple! 

now i am going to warm up some hot and sour soup :) 


the little land

When at home alone I sit
And am very tired of it,

I have just to shut my eyes
To go sailing through the skies--

To go sailing far away
To the pleasant Land of Play;
To the fairy land afar

Where the Little People are;
Where the clover-tops are trees,
And the rain-pools are the seas,
And the leaves, like little ships,
Sail about on tiny trips;
And above the Daisy tree
Through the grasses,
High o'erhead the Bumble Bee
Hums and passes

In that forest to and fro
I can wander, I can go;
See the spider and the fly,
And the ants go marching by,
Carrying parcels with their feet
Down the green and grassy street.
I can in the sorrel sit
Where the ladybird alit.
I can climb the jointed grass
And on high
See the greater swallows pass
In the sky,
And the round sun rolling by

Heeding no such things as I.

Through that forest I can pass
Till, as in a looking-glass,
Humming fly and daisy tree
And my tiny self I see,
Painted very clear and neat
On the rain-pool at my feet.
Should a leaflet come to land

Drifting near to where I stand,
Straight I'll board that tiny boat
Round the rain-pool sea to float

Little thoughtful creatures sit
On the grassy coasts of it;
Little things with lovely eyes
See me sailing with surprise.
Some are clad in armour green--
(These have sure to battle been!)--
Some are pied with ev'ry hue,
Black and crimson, gold and blue;
Some have wings and swift are gone;--
But they all look kindly on.

When my eyes I once again 
Open, and see all things plain:
High bare walls, great bare floor;
Great big knobs on drawer and door; 
Great big people perched on chairs, 
Stitching tucks and mending tears, 
Each a hill that I could climb, 
And talking nonsense all the time-- 
O dear me, 
That I could be 
A sailor on a the rain-pool sea
A climber in the clover tree
And just come back a sleepy-head, 
Late at night 
to go to bed

my favorite poem ever by my favorite poet ever: Robert Louis Stevenson
I dont quite remember where i got the pictures from!
but i know fuckyeahskinnybitch.tumblr was one of them!



ohh summer. how i missed thee.

i pretty much went through a midlife crisis (because the life of a 20 year old can be OH SO stressful, obviously), and deleted every single blog post i had written. i didn't have the heart to delete my blog, though. Which is probably a good thing since i missed this blog so much. so here i am!

new year, new blog, new me.
kind of.

i'm trying to make this summer the best/busiest/most exciting summer of my life! because, well, after like 3rd year of university, you don't really get much of a summer anymore.

So, here are just a few random shots from my summer so far :)

the "cool hippy mom" look... i don't know if my friend meant that as a compliment when she said it to me haha. scarf is from value village, tank-old navy, shorts-vintage, sunglasses-ray ban
my friend monica's balloon, named duke, sylvester, and various other names, throughout the day.
my first time EVER, at the beaches in toronto!

some of us went to barrie to visit our friend. baaad day to go to wasaga. it was so windy, we felt like we were in the middle of a sandstorm! i had sand in my ears for a week after that...




--a lovely night at tattoo rock parlour. my favorite place to go, in toronto!
--i only put the shot of me on the street because it shows off my dress better... haha
--the graffiti wall is just the coolest thing i have ever seen!
--and lastly, my friend monica was clearly very excited to be there.
dress-made by me, shoes (not pictured)-payless
