As you know I celebrated my birthday at the beginning of the month and one of my presents was a new computer. Can you believe it?!?!! I am so lucky and happy with it. My boyfriend surprised me with the best present I could as for. Not only did I need it as my other one was about to break down but I have been wanting a Mac for a long time and he got the Mac Book Pro with retina. So happy with it. I have the best boyfriend ever. I also got some lovely gifts from some amazing friends like Not that Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham, Victoria Secret lotion, a cupcake and chocolates and cards. I had a fantastic birthday, its going to be hard to top this one!!!
I recently got my nails done. I went to see the lovely and talented Catherine of Sundaybeauty. It is amazing what she can do, I was very impressed. The idea behind the design she did for my nails was actually from a photo she found on my Instagram that I put up which I thought was really cool. Black and gold stripes and marble. I never would have thought of that but I am glad she did. So creative. I love them!
Stay tuned for tomorrows exciting post!!

On Friday night I went to an Aldo A List event hosted by my lovely friends Stephanie from Verlico and Elizabeth from The Style Saver. There was drinks, treats, shopping and a little fashion show they put together. I met some new people and enjoyed the company of friends. It was a great night and I took a few photos so I will post those soon. As for the outfit here, I am pretty living living in a few of these items non stop lately. I just can't get enough of my new jeans and these shoes. They have been life savers lately. Do you ever go throw periods like that where you wear the same things a lot then you get something new and then you move on to the next, that's how I am when I get new items in.

I just have to say that I love the pops of colour in the background of the these photos. Also that this jacket is warm and cozy, I have had it for years and plan on having it for more. Sometimes these sunny days can fool us into thinking that it is warm out but in reality they are the coldest and that is exactly why I wore this jacket. I actually wore this jacket on my birthday for the birthday dinner, but I didn't get a chance to take a picture of it, maybe I can recreate it for you to see? Anyways, its the weekend which is always my favourite time cause its my days off!! I am going to relax, hang out with friends, clean and enjoy time with the boyfriend. I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!!

Like I mentioned a while back, Sephora just opened a new store location on Robson street. With lots of excitement surrounding the opening of the store they hosted an event the night before the opening. I went with some fellow Vancouver Fashion, street style and beauty bloggers to the event and we had a blast enjoying drinking free samples and networking. At the end of the night we got the most amazing boogie bag and I have been using everything since. Here we got Fresh rose face mask, Benefit gimme brow, a super cute umbrella, an Airbrush Sephora brush and eye shadow set, Ole Henriksen ultimate lift eye gel and Atelier Cologne vanilla incensee and orange sanguine. There was even some "celebrity" people there like Ole Henriksen, who by the way is awesome and so fun and also Coco Rocha. Everyone went a bit crazy when they saw her walk in, me being one of them. I wanted to be a model growing up (but I'm short) so I watched her walk those runways and I always loved her so it was neat to see her in person. I had the opportunity to get my picture taken with her but I am such a chicken that I didn't, now I wish I had. Oh well!! Anyways, I will talk more about these products and do reviews in later posts.
I have been going to a bad hair phase and I don't know what to do. I have been trying to grow out my hair since I cut it short in the beginning of the year and it has been at an awkward stage for a while now. I feel like I need a change but I don't know what. Have any suggestions or ideas? Or if you live in the Vancouver area, do you know a good hair stylist that's not going to break the bank?

I have been listening to One Direction's new album over and over again and I can tell you its really good. If your not a fan, thats okay too!! Anyways, We have been lucky enough here in Vancouver to have plenty of sunshine filled days lately (though I am probably going to jinx myself by saying it) but with sun comes cold temperatures. I like it though, compared to what I grew up with, this is great and I love the crisp, fresh air feeling, so nice. It has also made for lots of layering and bringing out your favourite winter coats. Some of my wardrobe favourites are my winter pieces like my coats and sweaters. I got this jacket a couple seasons back for my birthday and even though it is a crazy print it is still very versatile and easy to wear. Definitely one of my bolder fashion choices.
