This past week was ridiculously busy, and I have no idea why. I feel like life just kept getting in the way, so I apologize for my lack of communication. Getting back into school-mode has been really hard to jump into, but I guess I don’t have much of a choice, and I’m trying to take it day by day with a pumpkin spice latte in hand. Aside from that, I’ve been trying to enjoy the last bits of this warm weather we’ve been having, and enjoy the days pre-no sleep mode (mainly because I have terrible study habits).

If you have any ideas to help me with getting more sleep during school – let me know!

With summer almost coming to an end, I can’t help but feel as if I didn’t do enough this summer, or accomplish enough. It was an overall great summer, but it’s slightly worrying. This weekend, I’m hoping I will be able to check off a few more things I had mentioned in my summer to-do list . Here’s to hoping, and I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Back-to-School Basics

back-to-school basicsOnce the end of summer hits, I start to get a bit sad. The luxury of; sleeping in, those long warm nights where all you want to do is walk for days, and the ability to not have a care in the world, are all coming to an end. But aside from what’s to come; late nights reading, exams and 15-page papers, there is a nostalgic element when getting ready for school. When I start doing my back-to-school shopping I remember when I used to go with my mom and how ridiculously fun it was, and how I wanted shiny new everything. Now, years later, I may not be grabbing for that barbie pencil case like I did in grade 2, but I will always get that little bit of excitement, like I did in grade 2.

Here are the items on my back-to-school wishlist:
1. Maybe the pencil case will remind me to not forget my glasses…and vice versa? $28
2. Headphones are a must for me, can’t go a day without them $199
3. I like to try and stay organized, and this agenda is too cute to pass up $36
4. A good plaid shirt is the perfect layering buddy, and they’ve become staples in my wardrobe $65
5. A sturdy backpack is absolutely necessary when carrying all your textbooks $248
6. (Cute)track pants, need I say more? $39 (on sale!)

Remnants of Summer

The weather as of late has been reminding me more and more of fall. It’s not cold or anything, but a bit rainy and cloudy. Of course you don’t hear me complaining or anything, this weather is perfect for light layers, which is my favourite. This past weekend was quite a lazy one, with a trip to Ikea, and a whole lot of relaxing, so I just threw on a pair of jeans, crop top, my kimono and trusty shoemint heels. Such a breezy outfit, it’s officially going to be on repeat.  kimono love2 kimono love3 kimono love4 kimono love5 kimono love6 kimono love7

This week has been an interesting one. Mainly as I try and get into the groove of writing this blog as a one man woman act. I’m not saying it’s hard or anything, but rather a new adjustment. Aside from that, I’ve been giddy about it almost being Fall, and I’ll be letting you guys in on my Fall wishlist soon!
Till then, happy Friday!!
