Hi everyone!  How are you?  Did you have a good weekend?  Sunday/Monday is my weekend now and for the next month, so I'm a little behind.  We just watched The Oscars and OMG the ending!!  WTF?!!  I'm really proud that I managed to avoid any spoilers all day though!
On Friday night I went to HIIT Combo at Kondi and then to the airport to pick up my bestie Kelsey for a sleepover!  We grabbed T and went to Nomad for dinner.  Everything we had was great!!  We stayed up late talking and drinking wine and the next morning we went back to the airport and then I went to work!  I was sooooo tired!!
Saturday night was impromptu tacos with friends and more wine, where I found out the devastating news that Beyonce cancelled Coachella!!  Noooooo!
Sunday was sleeping in, watching The Voice UK and catching up on reading blogs and today I renewed my driver's license downtown, purchased a new pink mini zip skinny and some underwear before coming home to watch The Oscars!
All in all, a pretty great weekend!  I hope you had a great one too, and thank you for reading!

Hi everyone!  Here's a look at what I wore to work last week!

The first outfit you may have seen on Instagram ... my Valentine's Day outfit!  Pink is my favourite colour so it was hard to choose, but there is something so flirty yet sweet about the blush pink pleated mini skirt that I couldn't resist!  It's an oldie but a goodie from Forever 21!  The things you can find there, I tell ya!

Also, I am bringing back the sock bun into my weekly or bi-weekly hair routine after this week!  It's perfect for 3rd or 4th day hair and looks super cute (I got a couple of compliments last week😊) while also keeping the hair off my face (it gets annoying sometimes)!

I know it was a holiday/long weekend for a lot of you - did you have a good time??  It wasn't one here, but we ventured to Hemlock Mountain Resort after work on Friday for my cousin's 40th birthday party!  There were about 16 of us altogether (mostly women, don't worry T was A-OK with that LOL) and it was super fun.  A lot of hanging out, drinking, playing games, and even an afternoon snow shoe!  Oh, and also a hot tub!

I'm on a new work schedule this week which is Tuesday to Saturday, until April.  So I had Monday off and it was nice to be able to unpack the car, do laundry and plan a few meals after a weekend away.  Also I went to yoga which was quite challenging but felt really good too, and then lunch afterwards at Tractor.  I haven't been there in a long time and it's SO GOOD.  Once the weather warms up I will be going there more during my work lunch break!

This week is busy with after-work activities - strata meeting tomorrow night, haircut Thursday, bestie sleepover Friday - tonight is the only night I have free until Saturday!  We don't have cable so I won't be watching the Oscars live on Sunday but we'll download it and watch it on Monday instead.  I love that the commercials are cut out but it's difficult to avoid spoilers!!

Anyways, I hope you have eased back into the workweek and at least it's a short one!

Thank you for reading!

Hi everyone!  How are you?

It's Sunday morning of a long weekend and I am at home sitting on my couch with a cup of coffee and a bagel waiting to be eaten.  My upstairs neighbours are vacuuming which they love to do on the weekends (hey, I get it - I like to do laundry on the weekends) and T is still sleeping.  Unfortunately I didn't sleep in yesterday or today, which is a major bummer around here.  I know some of you have kids, or are early risers so sleeping-in is non-existent or just not a possibility, but for me it really makes a huge difference to how I feel and view the weekend.  A sleep in equals a good weekend, essentially.  Luckily, I get one more day to try as tomorrow is a holiday here in BC (Family Day).

Yesterday I went to Front & Company and The Main Exchange, two local consignment stores, to look for (designer) black skinny jeans.  I love buying jeans at consignment stores because they sell great brands at a major discount.  Right now I am on the hunt for a really good pair of black skinny jeans, but I don't want to pay more than $200 CAD. 
I'm not sure why I've picked that as my price limit, I've been buying designer jeans since I was in high school, mostly on Ebay and other second-hand methods, but have also splurged on full-priced pairs from Nordstrom and Aritzia.  So in my experience, I know that designer denim is worth it.  But the prices just seem to be going up for no particular reason.  3 years ago I could buy a pair of COH for $150 retail.  Why are they now $250??
In the recent past, I have been wearing the Rockstar Skinny Jeans from Old Navy.  I love they way they fit, but they fade and stretch out and I don't want to go through the cycle of buying a new pair every 6 months.  I am over it.  Unfortunately I didn't find anything yesterday, but am going to try Turnabout today as well.  

In other shopping news, I was making a list of items I 'need' to purchase for Spring, so that I can prioritize which need to be purchased first and make sure I am not spending too much on impulse purchases (Old Navy Super Cash, I'm looking at you!).  My beloved Deloris pumps from Aldo in nude were on the list - I just know that they will go with everything and will look especially good with skirts and dresses once it's warm enough to go sans tights - and I clicked over to the site just to check their status - and they were on sale for 50% off!!  So naturally I purchased them immediately! 

Last week I also bought some camisoles from Gap online (40% off) as mine desperately need replacing (they are embarrassingly old).  They were supposed to arrive on Friday but never did so hopefully Tuesday.  In the winter I wear a cami underneath my tops everyday for extra warmth, so they really need to be comfortable and not too high-cut (that is a major pet peeve).  I prefer seamless as well, which the Gap ones aren't, so we'll see.  I also like to wear a cami as a PJ top when sleeping over at someone's house or on a group trip (which we are doing next weekend!).  Fran mentioned last week that she loves the Express tanks but recently ordered this one from Nordstrom, so I'm curious as to her review!  I don't really shop at Express - for many years it seemed like a US-only brand - but we do have one downtown so I could potentially pick up a couple of their camis if the Gap ones don't work out.  I also know that Rachelle from Pink Sole loves these tops from Express, which come in every colour and can be wore to work with a blazer, or solo for a night out - so that might be another good excuse to stop by ;)

Anyways, thank you for reading and I hope you have a great week!
