Hi everyone!  How are you?


We were in the Okanagan this weekend visiting my family, and it was also T's birthday on Sunday!  He loved watching the GOT season finale on his birthday!  LOL it was such a good episode too!

We also did a wine tour (my parents drove us all!  We went to Platinum Bench - a must-try, their bread is delicious, Bartier Bros, Fairview Cellars, Maverick, Quinta Ferreira and Noteworthy Gin Distillery) and afterwards had a delicious BBQ dinner on my parents' deck.  T, my brother and brother-in-law went to a friend's to watch the fight while the rest of us relaxed at home and had an early night.

The next day (T's birthday) we went boating on Skaha Lake with a family friend and I tried wakesurfing for the first time!  I've wakeboarded before so felt pretty familiar with the concept and it was so fun!!  I also went tubing with my niece and we had a great time.  After that we went to my brother and sister-in-law's house in Penticton for dinner, GOT and a sleepover!  They bought a new house earlier this year and then did a big reno and we hadn't seen any of it yet!  It's super cute and they did a great job on the reno.  My dad built them some garden boxes and they were overflowing!  Everything my sis-in-law made for dinner was from her garden (salad, mashed potatoes, wilted greens), except for the chicken!  I love that.

Anyways, we are back now and I'm not going to lie, I'm excited for a short work week and another long weekend coming up!  LOL . I wish I had more money in my fall shopping budget as this weekend would be a great time to do some shopping AND it's the Artizia Warehouse Sale!  Eeek!

Hi everyone!  How are you?!

Thank you all for your comments on last week's post, I'm glad I'm not alone in my Pinterest frustration!

Typically I alternate days wearing pants and dresses or skirts but this week my pants were feeling tight (I've gained weight :() so I opted for dresses and a nice loose jumpsuit instead.  The weather has been cooling down slightly so longer sleeves and closed-toe shoes are a good way to transition.

T and I don't have any plans this weekend which I love.  Yesterday we slept in and then went and played Pitch and Putt in the afternoon.  It was so nice!  We used to play at least a few times a summer but this was the first time this year for us!  We brought a friend we haven't seen for awhile and it turns out he's moving back to Toronto in November so it was nice to catch up with him as well.  Afterwards we ate dinner on the Cactus Club patio in English Bay.  Just a great summer day in Vancouver if you ask me!

Next weekend is T's birthday so we may go to the Okanagan to visit my fam or we may stay in town - we haven't decided yet!

What are you all up to this weekend?  Tell me in the comments below!

As always, thank you for reading!

Hi everyone!  How are you?!

We got back from our camping trip to Vancouver Island (very) late on Sunday night and yesterday I was just too exhausted to write something for the blog.  I did take outfit pics before work, worked a full day, went to the gym, got home and unpacked from camping, did a couple loads of laundry and finally was ready to relax with some sushi and Game of Thrones.  Tonight we need to do more laundry, get groceries, and I need to do my nails!  LOL

The wildfire smoke has finally dissipated from Vancouver and we have blue skies again!  The weather is a bit cooler than it was before and I think mentally people are preparing for fall.  I'm not there yet, but I do feel like I have already worn most of my summer work items so the cooler weather allows me to dress a little differently (ie, layers - see striped jacket above!).

Is anyone here a big Pinterest user/fan?  I am, it is my go-to site whenever I open the computer.  I just realized that Pinterest has changed it's algorithm to a "smart feed" instead of being chronological - basically the same thing that Instagram did.  So instead of showing you all of the pins from all of the people you follow, it only shows you the ones with the highest engagement.  I came back from the weekend expecting to have tons of new pins to browse through only to realize that there were only about 20!  Super frustrating and I don't think there's anything I can do about it, except for 'engaging' with pins that I do like, in order to hopefully see more like them.  But really I just want the old Pinterest back!

Anyways, cheers to Tuesday and I hope you all have a great week!

Hi everyone!  How are you?

I am so happy it's the long weekend!  We don't have any major plans other than a "new job celebration dinner" tonight for a friend (I am probably going to wear this dress).  It's so hard going away on a long weekend from Vancouver; the highways to get out of town are just jam packed (they are nothing like the freeways in the states, or even the highways in Ontario).  There's basically one highway that can get you out of the city, and it's not big enough for all of our traffic.  So it takes way longer to get where you are going (and home again) on the long weekends when everyone is taking off.  And if you are heading West to one of the islands, you have to book a ferry in advance, it's expensive and it takes a long time, too!  So here we are, staying put in the city :)

I hate to talk about the weather, it's so cliche, but it's really smokey here from all of the wildfires that are happening in BC (you may have seen my Insta about it).  So that kind of puts a damper on any outdoor activities (like the beach!) for the weekend, however 'they say' it will clear by Sunday, so that would be nice!!  Next weekend we are going to Vancouver Island for our 3rd annual Cowichan River float and I'm sure the sun will be out by then!

Shopping-wise, I am feeling really poor right now so have halted any shopping for the time being.  My Citizens of Humanity jeans from eBay arrived in the mail this week (unexpected super fast shipping!) and are really comfy.  It's been too hot to wear jeans so I don't know when I'll actually get to test-wear them but I already took the tags off so that's that!  LOL Actually I wish they were skinnier at the ankles (anyone else have this problem?!  It's constant for me) but I think it's one of those things only I notice so I decided it wasn't that big of a deal.  Hey, at least I didn't have to get them hemmed, amiright?! #shortgirlproblems

T & I are probably going to head downtown to the mall today as I need to return my American Eagle and Hollister orders, and he wants to get some shorts from AE, so hopefully I don't get too distracted and end up buying more stuff!  Although, I could use some neutral sandals ... and there are probably good sales this weekend ... ;)

Anyways, I hope you all have a great weekend and thank you for visiting!!
