I was looking for a skirt in this colour and I like the sueded feel of this one.

Got this dress for my winter formal dance! From Dynamite, for $39.90. Got a discount though because I’m a Virgin Mobile member – gotta love deals.

Red Infinity Scarf – Giant Tiger $9

Definitely going to wear these two together.

july collective haul

I have been saving my money for a while for my summer trips. I really wanted to shop online a lot, but I’m glad I resisted. Bought this stuff on separate occasions…on my Southern Ontario trip and a shopping trip I went on recently to Ottawa. Just wanted to share some of the clothing I bought for back to school.





H&M Black Jeans by “Divided” – $24.95

Zara Equestrian-like Pants – $29.99

Campus Crew White Denim Cutoffs – $12.99

I love the Zara pants. In real life they are more of a green-khaki colour. I also love the leather detailing on the belt loops! I think they were originally $50-$60, so I’m happy they were on sale. I’m also happy with the shorts too – they were originally $34.99. If you’re ever near a Campus Crew, check out their sale items. They have a lot of good deals.



Zara Pullover – $15.99

Trendyland Brand Crop Top (Brandy Melville Knockoff) – $12.99

Abercrombie Kids “Haven” Top – $32.50 (now on sale for $22)

Aerie Lace Bandeau – $12.95

I was excited when I found the knockoff Brandy shirt at Winners. Although the make of the shirt is not as soft as the Brandy cotton, I won’t complain for 12.99 and proper sizing (Brandy Melville is one size fits all). Especially happy with the Abercrombie Kids purchase as well (yes, I still fit their “kid” sizes, but in XL, #shortpeopleproblems) because I’ve been looking for more preppy tops, although I find that A&F is changing their style. I got the white bandeau from Aerie to wear underneath since the back is lace.



I bought this “Party Cam” for $14.00 from Urban Outfitters. It’s disposable and it puts different prints on your photos. I thought it was really cool and I bought it to bring to the Osheaga music festival in Montreal my friend and I are going to this Friday through Sunday. So excited! I am pumped to see Two Door Cinema Club, Imagine Dragons, and others. 3 days, 14 hours, and 41 minutes! 




my southern ontario trip: toronto (+one direction)

The next few blog posts will be about my past trips I’ve taken this month, so stay tuned!

On July 9, my family, my cousin, and I left for Toronto (5 hour drive anyone?) My cousin and I waited forever for this trip! We purchased tickets to One Direction’s Take Me Home tour more than a year in advance. Finally we were going the next day!

We arrived in Toronto around 5:30. My aunt’s lasagna was awaiting us. Yum!

The next day we went to Yorkdale Shopping Centre. I was ready to shop…I had been saving my money for the summer and was in need of retail therapy. First my aunt took me to Tiffany & Co. for my late 16th birthday present. I chose the “Return to Tiffany” heart tag charm in sterling silver.


Thanks Auntie K!

Later we browsed through more of the stores and I bought some clothes from Zara and H&M. Got some good deals, especially since Zara is having their huge summer sale. I also was hoping to get something from the Brandy Melville there, but it was packed. It was really stuffy and hard to move around. I really wanted the “Stay Weird” and the “Waikiki” tank, but sadly the store didn’t have them :( As time past my cousin and I counted down the hours before seeing 1D!


In line at Zara!

My aunt took my cousin and I to the Eaton Centre later before dinner so we could go to A&F and Hollister. We were disappointed with the two stores, but I ended up getting a pretty white tank with a lace back from A&F Kids (I fit their XL sizes still, oops) After we met my uncle for a quick dinner before the concert. McDonald’s anyone?


The line into the Air Canada Centre seemed endless. We waited in the line inside the train station outside the arena doors and it was boiling. The line went quick though and soon we were inside! My cousin and I were beyond excited…words cannot explain.


The concert started late, but my cousin kept saying, “You waited more than a year, you can wait another 20 minutes!” She was right. Loved every minute of it. The opening act, 5 Seconds of Summer, were decent, but I was ready to see boys!


ImageImageImageOverall, it was such a fun and memorable night. Big thanks to my aunt and uncle for their hospitality and taking us to the ACC! I still can’t believe I saw the boys in the flesh. My favourites were More Than This, Kiss You, Last First Kiss, and Moments. Guess who wants to attend the Where We Are 2014 Tour now?

*Posting a haul of the clothing/accessories I bought this month so watch out for that!*
