Cherry Blossoms

It is a gorgeous Monday afternoon! I am all done with classes and able to fully appreciate the sunshine.

This past weekend I saw some of the most lovely flowers blooming around campus. Though I've already done a handful of flower posts, I just couldn't resist sharing more photos with you all!

I hope you're all enjoying the beginnings of spring weather! I'm absolutely loving it. A chance to get outside, get more active, take in the fresh air without freezing my nose off.

It's also the last full week of school (time goes by way too quickly), so unfortunately this gorgeous weather is making it a bit trickier to concentrate, which I really should be doing in these last few days of class. But in just a month I will be completely done my first year of uni - it's insane. This year has been quite the adventure.

I do hope you all have wonderful weeks.

Almost the Weekend

Hi everyone!

It was an absolutely gorgeous day today, and since my only class today ended at 9:30, I decided to grab my camera, grab a coffee, and wander around downtown. Such a good decision.

Goodness me, was downtown purdy. I had a lovely time strolling around and simply enjoying the warmth of the sun (though there is still a definite chill in the air!).

I didn't get a ton of shopping done, but I did hit up some excellent bra sales! 50% off at La Senza, it was as if I were dreaming! I got one balconier bra in a gorgeous purple colour from there for $20, and another $20 bra from H&M. There's something so satisfying about bra shopping, I love it.

Anyway, I hope you all had wonderful weeks, and have equally wonderful weekends!

Also, I have a flickr account - if you check it out I would be forever greatful! Click here to see it.

Hi everyone!

The weather here has been absolutely gorgeous. Clear skies, bright sun, slightest breeze. I can actually feel the warmth of the sun when it hits me. It's glorious.

With this beautiful spring-like weather comes the beginnings of our spring flowers! Campus is looking amazing already, I'm so excited.

I'm so enjoying all the bright colours! I thought that these crocuses were especially gorgeous. 

I hope you are all having wonderful weeks!

My Small Makeup Victory

Hi everyone!

Today I will be informing you of my small but momentous makeup victory - after an age of trial and error, I can finally make my black liquid eyeliner symmetrical on both sides. I mean, there's still some error... let's say I'm up to nailing it 80% of the time. I feel like that's something I can work with!

Here's proof!

It really is not that momentous an occasion, I suppose.... but hey, it's the little things in life :)

Have wonderful weekends!

February Music Favourites

Hello everyone!

It's Tuesday, I'm finished with class, and it's pouring outside. The perfect time to relax and listen to some of my favourite artists.

I found a lot of new music this past month, but here are a couple of the songs that really stood out for me:

Image Source
Say Something by A Great Big World ft. Christina Aguilera: This song is absolutely gorgeous. I kept hearing snippets of it on the radio, in restaurants, etc, and never knew what it was until I finally found it online. I love how you can really feel the emotion in the song.

I Won't Let You Go by Snow Patrol: You can really never go wrong with Snow Patrol. I continue to enjoy the new music they create! Such a lovely song.

Image Source
Only Love by Ben Howard: This entire CD, really. I love Ben Howard's unique voice, interesting instrumentals, and gorgeous lyrics. A very talented artist, I would love to see him live.

There are some of the songs and artists I have been enjoying recently! Some other artists not pictured above are Andrew Belle, The Mowgli's, and Two Hours Traffic. If you are into alternative, up-beat music, do give them a listen!

What songs are you enjoying this month?

Rainy Sunday

Hi everyone! I hope you all had wonderful weeks.

It's Sunday, it's raining, and I'm nice and cozy listening to some indie music. It's really creating this excellent feeling in me.

The playlist I'm listening to, very aptly named "That Sunday Afternoon Feeling," is right here if you're curious. Truly lovely.

And here is my look for today:

Lipstick: RIMMEL Lasting Finish Liptick in "Just So." 
Eyeshadow: COVERGIRL Eyeshadow Quad in "Lionqueen."
Eyeliner: ALMAY Intense I-Color Liquid Liner
Eyebrows: ALMAY Brow Defining Pencil

Had some fun with button-up shirts today as well! Found at Old Navy
Good bye for now! May you all have lovely beginnings to your weeks.
