Towne and Reese

If you have not heard of the jewellery store Towne and Reese, then you are definitely missing out guys!  
Now, not all of us have the luxury to have a Towne and Reese nearby, but have no fear, they have an online shop as well.  
I have personally ordered several pieces from Towne and Reese and have not been disappointed once.  Their jewellery is affordable, classic, and fashion forward.  
If you are looking for that piece to complete every look then I recommend checking them out. 
Also.. there is more exciting news.  One of my fashion favourite bachelorettes, Emily Maynard, is coming out with her own jewellery lines for Towne and Reese mid July! Even if you are not a fan of the show, this girl's taste in jewellery is impeccable.

Enjoy your Wednesday fashionista's

Summer Finally Here

It finally feels like summer!! Yeah!!! On the actual first day of summer (June 21st), it was rainy and kind of gloomy. BUT yesterday the sun finally came out and it is hot!  And if anyone is complaining about the heat just think about it in 6 months it will Christmas... as much as I love no triple love Christmas I do not really like the cold.  

So I wanted to say Happy SUMMER!!! 

Here are some funny pictures about summer I thought I would share :)
Hehe Hope you have a beautiful Tuesday!

Summer Reading

Summer is the perfect time for reading.  I adore reading, but during the school year it sadly gets put on the back burner.  I thought I'd share some of my favorites and hopefully some favorites to come.

1// Something Blue/Something Borrowed. Emily Giffin
2// Looking For Alaska. John Green
This one made me a little sad, but definitely a good read. 

3// The Bride Quartet. Nora Roberts
All 4 books are cute, captivating, and wonderful.

Future reads..

4// The Witness. Nora Roberts
I have heard nothing but good things about this one.  So excited to start.

Don't forget to follow us on bloglovin friends! The link is on the side.  Happy Monday xo

High Five for Friday

Hi Everyone!
It's High Five for Friday!

1// Making homemade chicken kebabs! Yumm... they were so delicious and we realized that vegetables grill really well when they are on the skewers. Next time when we want grilled veggies we are going to cook them on the skewers.

2// I have watched Live with Kelly and Michael everyday this week, while enjoying my cup of coffee.  I love this show! (And I even entered their Tune in to Win Jetaway! I always dream of winning a trip to an exotic destination)

3// Making homemade cinnamon bread. (Though I didn't realize the dough should have been divided into two, so it was a huge loaf!)

4// Celebrating Alea's 21st Birthday!!  We didn't get any pictures together :( but we did enjoy some laughs, fun times, and yummy drinks !

5// Going to the Father's Day Picnic with my parents.  My Dad's work sponsors this picnic and they have food, races, draws, and a few rides for the children.  (It started to rain so we had to leave early but we got some free kettle corn ... yum)

Linking up with High Five for Friday with Lauren Elizabeth

What was special about your week?? Did you try any recipes?? Did you do anything fun for Father's Day??

Summer Must Haves

I love clothes!  Anything from dresses, to shorts, to skinny jeans, skirts. And summer is one of my favourite times because you can wear sundresses with wedges or tank tops with skinny jeans  and you don't have to worry about being freezing cold.  When I shop there are many times I have to talk myself out of purchasing new outfits (unless it is a really good buy and I need that item). My style is fairly girly, I love bold colours, lace, floral, dresses, skirts, bows.  Today I thought I would share some summer must have items that I really love and may end up in my closet.

1// High Low Skirt

2// Maxi Skirt

3// Flowy classy dress (So many dresses nowadays are too short, that is why I like having a dress that is a little longer for certain events)

4// Cute Bathing Suit

5// Bright Jeans

6// Fun Shorts

7// Summer Dresses


8// Wedges!! (I know they aren't clothes but they complete the outfit!!)

 What are some your Summer Must Haves??

My Top Ten Favourite Hair Products

I love hair products and am willing to try lots of different products.  Once I try it, I decide if I will buy it again or just use it up. I love making my hair feel soft and shiny but I do not want to weigh it down or make it feel/look greasy. Since my hair is fine and thin, I have to be careful how much product goes into my hair.  So here it is goes my top ten hair products.

1// Moroccan Oil (Light because my hair is blonde)  
2// Carol's Daughter Vanilla Bean Smoothie
3// ISO Tamer Foam (mouse)

4//  Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil Dry Oil Mist
5// Goldwell Dualsenses Colour Care Extra Rich Shampoo and Conditioner

6// AG Hair Colour Care Sterling Silver Shampoo and conditioner

7// Matrix Amplify Hair Spray
8// It's a Ten spray
9// Kaaral Brillante Glossing Spray
 10// Kaaral Pink Up Straightening Cream

Linking with Many Little Blessings for Top Ten Tuesday. Hope your Tuesday is Terrific!

Dance Party

Happy Monday friends!

I don't know about you, but I think summer is for endless dance parties, and I've found the perfect song.  Of course I just had to share it with you.  I'm sure most of you have heard it before, but if you haven't, then you're welcome for the next 4:32 that will be spent grooving in your seat.  

This may just help battle through your Monday.

Beautiful Body - Dove Sketches

Hope your Friday is going amazing so far :)

I thought I would share this video with you.  I know it was released online a couple months ago but I just never had the time to share it.  This video means a lot to me because positive body image and self esteem is such an important trait to have.  It hurts me to hear when someone young or old says they don't like something about there body or that they "fat".  Everyone is beautiful in their own way, but our worst critics are ourselves.  This is one of Dove's most recent videos about true beauty, self esteem, and body image.

Here are some great body image quotes! I'm a quote-aholic, if that is even a word! lol  I just find they hold sooo much meaning and I feel a strong attachment to them.

What I ate Wednesday - Out of Town

This past weekend (well Sunday and Monday) I was out of town with my Mom.  One of the things I look forward to is eating at different restaurants.  We enjoy trying the places that are not the norm and not the chains.  Don't get me wrong, every once in a while I like going to a chain, but I would rather go out of the box.  So here it is what I ate out of town!!

 This was at 38 Degrees in Peterborough, Ontario

                                   Mediterranean Salad (They brought this to every one before their meal)

Pear Salad - Poached pears, strawberries, toasted almonds, goat cheese, and citrus vinaigrette

 Potato and Bacon Chowder                                            Fresh Bread with Lemon herb butter        
 (I am not a bacon eater but this was incredible)                Usually don't like butter but this was an exception

Pork tenderloin with Apple Raisin Chutney, roasted potatoes, and TONS of yummy veggies (squash, asparagus, green beans, carrots, zucchini)

Mahi Mahi with a delicious sauce (can't remember what it was) with basmati rice and veggies 

Sunset Grill in Ajax, Ontario    

                                        Feta and Tomato Fritata (with egg whites) also had fresh orange juice (delicious)

Spring Rolls                       Sui Mai - (Pork and Shrimp Dumplings)

                                                               Tango Mango with Chicken

Veggie Explosion Roll (Mango, Asparagus, avocado, topped with Sweet Potato Tempura)

Sorry for not the best quality pictures! Have a yummy Wednesday!
