May Day

Happy Tuesday sweet peas! Can you believe this shit is already May? Cot dayum holy Gina! I love May, it’s like a pre-funk into summer, def can’t be mad at that. As promised, a short post on my shopping haul from this past weekend’s trip to Seattle. I didn’t buy much, but what I got you might like so we can sharesies ok?

Neon is like, so my favorite right now. Old Navy Women’s Faux-Patent Leather Narrow Belts $14.95 (buy here). I got both for $9.

Forever 21 striped mesh yolk dress $9.50 (buy here) / H&M Houndsooth dress $18  (similar ones here).

The first dress is so going to be my Vegas uniform, I can already see all the trouble its going to get into. The second dress will be the one I wear the next morning to church to confess all the sins from the night before. Praise Allah!!! lol

Forever 21 Striped nautical shorts $15.80 (buy here). These shorts are so comfy and actually flattering, love them.

Finally got to pick up my IVs and grabbed Ray ‘s AF1 Camos as well.

Pretty sick huh? I think they were released at Dipt on Saturday, peep here.

And finally some gifted items:

Girl guide cookies hehe / tees from Rock, Paper, Scissors (RPS) in Seattle. Thanks to the homie Viet for hookin me up!

I saved the best for last though…

HELLO KITTY skateboard (buy here). I know, so effin’ legit right? I dont skateboard, but now I might just have to. So friggin’ amazeballs.

Ok. that was all. Are you having a good Tuesday so far? I’m so hungry. My Vegas diet started as of this morning. No more chips, pop, candy, and red meat. Wish a sista luck!

Weekend of good lovin’.

Happy Monday you ridiculously good looking doll face, you! I’m just in a good mood today because I had one of the best weekends ever. Started it off a little early on Thursday with some cherry blossom frolicking and then met up with Nana and crew for red velvet cake, korean bbq and facials.

I laugh every time i see that photo of nana and i with our killer masks on. Seriously, who wouldnt want to hit that? holla!

As you probably noticed from my tweet, my cousin Christine is back from Korea and we just got it in this weekend, just like the good ol’ times. So good to have my party partner back!! Friday was a beautiful day, got to meet the fams for lunch and discuss business and hello kitty (always winning!).

I love my new ring from @CDang, how adorbs is this? Bow ties are like what hearts are to love for me.

Later on in the night we hit up Fortune for a friend’s birthday. Met a lot of very sweet people! I swear the degree of separation just keeps getting smaller and smaller. Good night indeed!

The next morning I had to see the dentist, as mentioned here (I swear you should just be following me by now). I had to get a filling done and for some reason the 3 shots to freeze my face took 6 hours to wear off. Needless to say I passed the eff out when I got home. But now I know what my face will look like when I get work done, kind of looked like the left side of my face was having a hard time catching up with the right side.

Anyways got up, got ready to meet up with Christine, Sharon and Joe. This night turned out to be epic (I mean, how could it not? Good company is key!). We hit up Red Room to see this  guy.

I didn’t know who he was but apparently he’s an Irish Trance legend like it says on the poster haha. All that unce unce sounds the same to me. Crowd was young, like underaged young. I went to the bathroom and overheard a group of children saying “omg we almost got caught.” All good though, kids are the ones with the best drugs! .. kidding.

We did the unce unce for a bit and then headed over to Shine and this is where the magic happened. The music was..AMAZING, and you know I never say shit like that lol. it just felt like Tokyo Lounge circa 2007, it was hit after hit after hit. We were just smiling, laughing and dancing because we were so happy. The homies were just killin it! ran into friends I haven’t seen in awhile so it was nice to chop it up with the fams. We went back and forth from Red Room, from hardcore house unce unce to old school hip hop, eggstremely opposite music genres for an EGGSTREME night. Best night ever :) I didn’t want it to end,  haven’t had one of those nights since Toronto.. of last year.

The next morning Tiger and I were struggling getting up from my warm bed but I had an offer of pancakes and whipped cream i couldn’t  refuse. Had an awesome 4 hour late breakfast / lunch. It’s crazy how you meet people throughout your life, and even though many of those relationships stay dormant, sometimes you rediscover a new friend in an old friend.

After lunch, i met up with Christine again (3 days in a row, lucky me!) we went to her friend’s bbq and of course I man’d the grill like a real OG.

view from the top.

After the bbq I went to meet up with the crew for what i can only call as a very intense game of haterockey.  I won’t speak on that, Canucks are winning with 4 straight, I feel it!

But with the loss weighing heavy on our minds, I did what i only knew how..I ATE my feelings.

Did you have a good weekend? what did you do? I hope there was some eating and flirting involved.. thats what I call The Happy Girl Diet. Don’t front, I know you’re on it hehe. Okay thats all  folks, sorry about the late post. I was busy putting together an awesome article for Vancitybuzz.com.

If you haven’t checked it out already, please do so and spread the love babycakes. Have a great rest of the day! Thank you for visiting me today, I really appreciate the love.. I couldn’t ask for a better you. xo.

Seattle shopping purchases!

As much as a I love a good meal, coming across a great deal is just as satisfying! And you already know I’m all about the deals, it’s easy to look like a million bucks when you got the cheese to blow but when you don’t? well, my friend, you come to me.

First off let me tell you a small story behind the first purchase during my Seattle trip. I’ve wanted this bag since the day I laid eyes on it.  It’s like the little step sister of my other beloved bag picks, as seen here and here. I saw it on the Old Navy website awhile back and the only site with the yellow version was on the American site. $20 for the bag, $25 for shopping, that type of math is not cool with me.  So there we were in Seattle, browsing around in downtown and I thought to myself, why not pop into Old Navy and see if the coveted, almost 2 season old, bag is there. Obviously it wouldn’t be because that’s just the way of life. I went to the bag section, nothing.. then the clerk mentioned a clearance section downstairs. So off I went with a small tug at my heart knowing it probably wouldn’t be there and if somehow it was, there would be a huge stain on it, or something of that nature. Then behind a big brown satchel bag, was a yellow strap. A yellow strap attached to the bag I’ve been wanting!!! There she was, the last bag sitting alone, as if waiting for her mom to pick her up from school. Seriously, I felt like I had won the jackpot! You’re wondering why this bag needed a 39043 word interlude, its because things like this never happen to me. ($12)

How cute is this little nutsac of a bag? adorbs aint she? sigh, swoon. I was at the Nordstrom Rack after that and wanted to push my luck by praying to the retail gods that my DVF dress would be there… AND IT WAS!

just kidding. that shit don’t happen twice.

After my yellow bag purchase it was all gravy on the boat. Picked up some bikinis from forever21 that were sold out online last week (not pictured, you’re welcome), then I got something else that you might like. The girls and I were at a liquor/world store place buying wine and cheap thrills when I spotted a fur collar with a broken button. I’ve been wanting one for some time to wear on top of my leather jackets or tucked in my coats. What a perfect find right!? there were 2 left, I got one and left the other for Janet.  What a steal. It’s made a home in my closet already. ($10)

Another fur purchase (lord don’t hate me) is this amazing, buttery soft Safari Jacket from Macy’s. I swear I’m a beast when it comes to deals.

This one was just sitting on the rack and I didn’t even want to  try it on bc I have my H&M one but the texture was softer and even the color was warmer, a light grey/cream/white as opposed to my brown/black one from H&M.

Needless to say it was the peanut butter to my jaaAAAM and I wasn’t leaving without it. $200, with 80% off with an additional 10% bc of my Canadian passport. Total was less than $38 for a ¾ sleeve fur coat. God she’s a beauty! Oh and I love layering it with my leather jacket, makes for a great look dont you think? ($37)

And last but not least, I found some awesome leopard, drop crotch, high waisted with multiple buttons harem pants at Forever21. I heart them…. They’re so silky and soft. ($17.50)

What do you guys think of the stuff I bought? Would you have gotten it if you saw it? I want to know what inspires you to buy what you buy. Is it because everyone else has it? or because no one else has it? Just curious thats all. Okay let’s chat later, time to get ready for dins and a movie. xoxo
