Hi everyone!  

As always, here's a look at what I wore to work last week.  
You might notice I've been wearing this watch all week - it was a birthday gift from T and I am in love!!  I haven't worn a watch in YEARS - like, pre-teen I think ... I remember having a digital Timex watch with a velcro strap ... and it gave me a rash when the strap got wet so I stopped wearing it, LOL!  But I've wanted a nice, small, delicate watch for everyday wear forever!  It was just something I could never pull the trigger on purchasing myself, I think because of the price?  But Cluse watches are only $100!  I was actually going to purchase one for myself with some blogging money, but T did so awesome and surprised me!  

In shopping news, I finally bought a pair of designer black jeans.  Now, hoping they are perfect!  They are the Citizens of Humanity Rocket Jeans and I had tried them on previously but they are like $270 :( So I decided to check Ebay and the prices were pretty decent ($150-$200 CAD) so I decided to try them on again.  The are super soft and stretchy, with a nice high waist (not overly high, I think 9"), so I purchased a pair of Ebay for $150 including shipping.  I am already thinking about buying a pair of the same in a medium wash ... but want to wear these ones a bit to make sure they are really good.  I am going to have to get them hemmed, and sometimes when you do that they're not as tight at the ankle as they're meant to be, which is super annoying and looks bad.  And since I didn't use my blogging money on the watch, I used it on the jeans!  

Anyways, enough about me - how was your week??  Any plans for the weekend?

Hi everyone!  Good news for my shopping budget - I just got a tax refund!  Time to buy all of the things!!  Lol just kidding ... kind of ;) Black jeans and a drapey trench are at the top of my list, as well as a pair of high-waisted leggings (either these or these).  

Anyways, how was your weekend?  T had a friend over for a board game weekend, so Friday night I went to yoga, we ordered sushi and then I edited and uploaded these photos.  Saturday I went to yoga again (hot this time, so good!), work, and then home for lots of wine, a new board game (Viticulture - it's about winemaking!) and pizza .  Sunday we slept in and then I cleaned the apartment while T took his friend to the ferry.  We had leftover chilli for dinner, FaceTimed with my parents in New Zealand, and watched Patriot's Day - the Boston Marathon bombing movie with Mark Wahlberg.  

Monday was the first day of spring, yahoo!  It was actually sunny here, which it's not going to be for the rest of the week, so that was nice.  I celebrated by going for my first run of the year!!  It was tough, I'm not gonna lie!  It was a little windy and chilly and my lungs were feelin' it!  By the way, both my cousin and sister have said that when running, their legs get tired before their lungs.  I've never had sore legs while running before!  Are any of you runners?  Thoughts?!  

My smoothie 'diet' went well last week, although I ate and snacked as usual.  Typically I have fruit with my oatmeal for breakfast, and combined with the smoothie, I think I might have been eating too much fruit.  Which sucks, because I love fruit!  I had a smoothie again for lunch today but am going to move onto salads/leftovers for the rest of the week to keep it interesting!

As always, thank you for reading!

Hi everyone!  How are you?  Did you have a good weekend??

I worked on Saturday, and was feeling pretty down on myself for a lazy week and indulgent few days.  Last week I skipped the gym Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday which in and of itself is not a huge deal and it was actually so nice to spend some more time at home with T.  The weather was just so gross I couldn't motivate myself to go!  Anyways, I gave myself a break for that but then it was my birthday on Thursday so I indulged in donuts, pasta and wine ... and then Friday things just really got out of control with the eating.  More of the above, plus sushi, cake, and just general overeating (T was away Friday night and I just went crazy ... I swear if I lived alone I would get so fat!)  So, today I got things back on track with a great power yoga class, healthy grocery run and a meal/exercise plan for the week.  You can't let the past drag you down, you know?  Just learn from it and move on.


This week I am going to try and have smoothies for lunch.  Our office has a blender in the kitchen and I made "smoothie" packs to take, with a litre of almond milk which I'll keep there in the fridge.  As long as my co-workers don't get annoyed by the sound I think it will be good!  I tend to drink smoothies quite slowly, which helps keep me full for longer.  Funny because I eat and drink really quickly otherwise (trying to change that!)

In outfit news, not much exciting going on due to the Coachella-imposed shopping ban, so just trying to re-wear what's in my closet.  The striped H&M blazer/jacket + Wilfred dress outfit is a combination of items I haven't worn in awhile, but other than that it feels like I wore everything else just last month.

Oh, the other thing that happened this weekend was Daylight Savings!  How do you guys feel about that?  It seems like some people have very strong opinions!  I don't really care either way ... I feel like it doesn't really affect me at all.  If it stays light out for later, that's a good thing in my books!
