Weekly Summary #62

-25 C

This week I watched a lot of Breaking Bad and cooked a lot. I really spammed Breaking Bad, spent a lot of time on the couch this week, not going to lie. It was kinda awesome. I really needed the relaxation, but now I'm back to work. I spent one day making Mexican food. I've gotten really annoyed with the quality of "Mexican food" here in Canada. It's awful, so I decided to look up some recipes online and try to make some authentic Mexican food myself. It turned out really well. My Canadian friends like nachos, so I made them nachos. Then I made a lot of burritos to freeze and save. I like to make bulk amounts of food and then save them for later. I have quite a variety of food I've cooked in my freezer. Anyway, I made pico de gallo, guacamole, pinto beans, and Spanish rice from scratch. It was all so good. I even found queso fresco at the grocery store. I make the best Mexican food in Canada, hands down!

-25 C


Having not grown up in a cold place, it took me a couple real winters in Canada to figure out how to dress myself in a warm and fashionable way. I also found a real lack of this issue being discussed on other fashion blogs. So I wanted to show others how I dress during really cold weather. Right now it's about -10 C, but it can get all the way down to -45 C where I live. Scary!

I think the most important thing to have is a good jacket. I honestly have a brand loyalty to L.L. Bean when it comes to winter gear (I love their return policy). I made to sure to get a jacket that was actually warm, something that was tested to be actually warm, not some fashion coat that just looks warm. Those are ok for places that aren't actually cold in winter, but in this Canadian winter a fashion coat isn't going to fly. It's also important to have warm gloves, and for me, a hat that that partly covers my face. Though, some days I consider wearing a ski mask that covers my entire face because my nose gets so cold. Another important piece to have is obviously waterproof shoes, and for me I wanted something that covered my legs as much as possible. In my opinion, these Moon Boots were the most adorable winter boots I could find, and they're warm too!

The last thing that's important is layering. Once you've got your basics (jacket, gloves, boots, hat), you have to throw on as many layers as you need depending on how cold it is. Some days I don't need extra layers, and other days I need two or 3 pairs of socks, leggings under my jeans, and a sweatshirt.

So what I'm saying is, you don't have to be miserable in winter to look good. You can be warm and cozy and still feel stylish.

Weekly Summary #58&59

Instagram Photos:

1. Target Canada liquidation haul
2. My typical "Caturday" outfit

I've done a lot in the past two weeks. I did a small photo shoot, which was really fun. I kind of remembered how fun it is and how happy it makes me so I'm definitely planning to do that more often. I had my birthday which I didn't do a lot for but it was still nice. I'm 21 now! I also checked out the Target Canada liquidation. It was 30% off all makeup which was not bad. Overall I'd say things are getting better for me and I've been happier lately. I have a lot of things planned and I can't wait to show you guys!

Weekly Summary #57

This week I slowed things down a bit. I'm taking my time to clean and get a few things done, and today I set up for a little photo shoot I'm planning to do tomorrow. I really want to focus more on my blog again. I'll have a few posts coming out soon. One of them I've been working on for months!
