Shopping & Outfits

I've been shopping like a madwoman because things between me and my ex are still really bad.

I actually just bought these sandals while I was on the phone with him because it was a very bad conversation

I think the beige matches my Alexander Wang Rocco
I would wear these with this one piece jumpsuit I bought from Aritzia
I'll tell you more about it below

I was feeling depressed one day and so I decided to go to the mall for some more retail therapy. I wasn't planning on buying much... initially.

First I went to Zara and bought some jeans. I tried on a bunch of jeans that I bought last summer and none of them fit me anymore because they're too big. I still haven't been eating much lately so I lost a shit load of weight and now none of my stupid bottoms fit! Piss me off

Bought these army green cargo pants. They're very stretchy and comfortable.

Zara cargo pants with pockets

I was thinking of putting together an outfit like this

I ended up wearing it like this for dinner with a girlfriend

Cardigan - Old Navy
Tank top - Aritzia
Pants - Zara
Bag - Gucci 
Bracelets - Pandora
Necklace - Tiffany
Flats - Marc by Marc Jacobs

I couldn't decide between my Ferragamo or MBMJ ones at first
I played it safe and stuck with black

I also bought these grey distressed skinny jeans
But I ended up returning them because I have so many grey pairs of jeans at home

Then I decided to stop by Aritzia to do more retail therapy 

In love with this maxi skirt. I bought a bralette to wear on top.

A flowy tank top to go with the pattern shorts below

The jumpsuit I was talking about earlier

The bralette

The shorts

Bought another white tank top because the one I already had is old and looks beat
These tank tops are my fave. I buy these in medium

After Aritzia I went to Sephora 

Fresh soy face cleanser
So gentle on the face and it also removes your eye makeup. I use mine with my Clarisonic. 

Ole Henriksen truth serum
I use this with the matching face oil. Worth the $$$

Marc Jacobs genius gel foundation
I told the girl that I wanted foundation that wasn't too heavy because I hate the feeling of foundation on my face. This Marc Jacobs one is more like of a gel and it has awesome coverage. Feels super light. I had to go back and exchange this though because the girl at Sephora chose the wrong shade for my face. Made me look retarded. 

Estee Lauder double wear concealer
My gf told me to buy this concealer and it's the best one I've used so far. Very good coverage. Just dab a little on and then use the Sephora brand concealer airbrush (pictured to the right of it) to gently blend it and you will look flawless. I had to exchange the shade of this too. 

Sephora pro airbrush concealer brush 
When I went back the second day to exchange my foundation and concealer shade, I ended up buying Anastasia eyebrow promade. It's a gel brow filler.

I also bought a Marc Jacobs foundation brush because it received really good reviews online. It was really expensive though and is probably overpriced lol

Marc Jacobs the face I liquid foundation brush

I also went back to Aritzia and bought this tank top to  match a pair of slacks I bought from Zara a few weeks prior. 

Zara drawstring loose fit trousers

I also bought this blazer because this is one of the only blazers that I have tried on and actually liked

Zara blazer with turn up sleeve

I bought this Voluspa french bourbon oil diffuser for my room
The Chapters near my house was sold out so I ordered it online

An outfit I wore to a really stressful doctors appointment
It was a depressing day >.<
Kind of look likes the outfit that I posted above

Cardigan - Old Navy
Tank top - Aritzia
Boyfriend jeans - Rag and Bone for Aritzia
Bag - Louis Vuitton neverfull MM
Bracelets - Pandora
Sandals - Dolce Vita

A lazy outfit that I wore when I helped my ex-boyfriend with errands

Hat - J Lindeberg 
Beater - Aritzia
Crop pants - Pink by Victoria Secret
Shoes - Converse (not shown)
Bag - Longchamp (it's sitting on my bed)

A lame work outfit lol

This is from at least 1.5 months ago I just forgot to post it

Cape - Aritzia
T shirt - J Crew
Boyfriend jeans - Rag and Bone for Aritzia 
Bag - Gucci
Sunglasses - Tom Ford
Bracelet - Pandora

I bought this off the shoulder sweater off of Etsy for only $30
It says "More issues than Vogue"
Very true. I have major issues. Shopping ones. 

I have also finally bought myself an e-reader! So excited to get this in the mail because I love reading. I couldn't decided between a Kobo reader (from Chapters) or a Kindle (from Amazon). I spent a lot of time reading reviews for both and I ended up deciding on the new Kindle Paperwhite reader. It just seemed like the Kobo froze a lot when flipping pages, and Chapters/Indigo gave very poor costumer service. I read a lot of stories of them accusing costumers of dropping their e-books which meant it was not longer covered in the warranty. Plus, Amazon offers a wider selection of e-books.
I bought a pink leather case for my e-reader because pink is always better

Long lonely walks on the seawall with my dog

I've been trying to kill a lot of time by walking my dog Enya around the Stanley Park seawall. If you're not from Vancouver, it's a really popular tourist attraction because it's absolutely gorgeous. It takes me about 2.5-3.5 hours to walk it depending on how slow my little chihuahua/pomeranian is walking. No lie, I pretty much drag her the whole way.

The Lion's Gate bridge

It looks dark because of the sunlight but it was actually really sunny and bright

You walk past the most beautiful scenery. I love living in Vancouver

I also took a bunch of pictures with my dog. She's the love of my life!

I can't get enough of my Ray Ban flash aviators

Hehe... so adorable

Here are some of the outfits that I wore out during my long walks. Some chick pissed me off today though who was walking behind me with some guy. I could hear her talking about me and how I was a "Vancouver special", which is a term that they use here to call girls who are non-working gold diggers who date your typical drug dealers. First of all, I am a registered nurse and I make my own money. I'm even considering to go back to school to get my Masters in Nursing. Second, I don't even have a boyfriend and my last one owned his own cleaning and maintenance companies. And third? You're a fat hating bitch. Just because I own a small dog and am comfortable with my body doesn't make me a "Vancouver special". Anyways.. done with my rant. 

I was very close to saying all of this out loud to her in person but I promised my ex-boyfriend that I would control my "temper"

Sports bra - Can't remember at the moment sorry
Workout pants - Victoria Secret Pink

Another pair of workout pants by Victoria Secret Pink

I put together this outfit in literally 5 minutes
I had plans to go have high tea with my two gfs for one of their birthdays
But I almost slept in because I got home at 8am from nightshift!

Jean jacket - Zara
Leggings - American Apparel
Bag - Balenciaga
T shirt - J Crew
Hat - Lacoste
Sunglasses - Gucci

High tea at Urban Tea Merchant
I didn't have time to put makeup on fml

Food was so yummy.. I could barely finish everything because my appetite has been so bad lately

We got my girlfriend a Pandora charm bracelet with this dangling princess tiara charm and one pink glass charm. Now the three of us all have matching Pandora bracelets and Tiffany bracelets :D 

I'm going to Holt Renfrew this weekend with my girlfriend because we both have this promo card. It's spend $200 get $100 off. I think we're both going to grab Ferragamo flip flops.

It's Nurse's week by the way!!
