In Toronto!

We apologise for the lack of posts. We've been in Hamilton/Toronto since last week and just haven't be able to post much. Once we get back to Edmonton we will definitely get back on it.

So just a little update. We will be heading to Wonderland here in Toronto and are super excited because we haven't been to this one and as a matter of fact to an amusement park in ages. We are super excited and really looking forward too it cause the weather's supposed to be great (fingers crossed). Will probably post up some pictures later. Hope you guys have an amazing week!!

LUSH Lip Tint - it started with a kiss

♥ We love the warm red tint it leaves and don't think the after picture really shows off how pretty the colour is. 
Another great thing is that it works perfectly well in case your out and need it to double up as your blush. 
♥ One of us likes the texture because unlike most other lip stains it's not liquid but cream based. While one of us thinks the texture is still too hard and not emollient at all.
♥ It apparently has a few flavours mixed in it but all we can taste is possibly a tad bit of cinnamon and no white chocolate etc.

Overall we just like LUSH and love the colour but aren't sure if we'd repurchase it.

Put a ring on it!

 We are having a slight double ring/connector ring/two finger ring obsession at the moment and these are just a few rings that we've recently purchased. Who'd have thought knuckle dusters could ever be made feminine and edgy!

Quote of the day

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most importantly, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
- Steve Jobs

Straw Hats and Railway Tracks

We love these tap shorts. They are just incredibly comfortable and so lightweight. And the straw hat is just perfect for those sunny days, simply when you're trying to embrace the weather or like us just trying to make believe it's the peak of summer!

Floral Sunshine

(Reposted this look since it disappeared yesterday during bloggers maintenance issues.)

A friend whose creating a portfolio wanted us to model for it and we realized that the shoots could work for our outfits of the day :-). All the images are a mix taken from her camera and ours. 
Since it was incredibly sunny we wanted an outfit that really fit the weather. Wore the pink tank top with a floral skirt and the green platforms cause it felt very spring/summer fresh!

Ripped Denim Shorts

When it gets really warm here feel like we need to soak up as much sunshine as we can. Because before we know it the snow will start to bury the whole place. So just wore this white racer back top with the little gold detailing and some ripped denim shorts and a pair of Aldo boots that's just folded over! This outfit was just so comfortable and perfect for the weather! Nothing beats comfort right? at least that's the case most of the time.

Neon Hues - Spring 2011 Trend

The neon tights and spandex days are long gone because Spring is all about future forward brights. With this trend less is definitely more, just look at those gowns. We are completely in love with the blue and pink gowns. Aren't they just beautiful? Want to put them on and literally never take them off.  
If your not ready to unleash yourself to the world wearing this trend in fear of possibly looking like a lightsaber from Star Wars at night, start off with statement accessories like we always suggest. Or you could just pair a simple neon top or t-shirt with a basic pair of jeans (which is what we did for a previous look) or even a pair of white shorts and still look great!

The Bumble Bee in Stilettos

Since it's Mothers Day we thought yellow would make for a perfect outfit post since it's our Moms absolute favourite colour. While some people think yellow is rather garish we absolutely love this colour and are always drawn to it. Also some might say wearing black and yellow can make you look like a life size bumble bee but we are perfectly ok with that [:-)]cause we really liked the stripe black vest with the dress. Besides the outfit we just loved the location!

Our Mother, Our Diamond

Diamond - from the ancient Greek αδάμας – adámas "unbreakable"
Your arms are always open when we need a hug, your heart understands when we need a friend and your strength and love have guided us through the years.  Mom, thank you for being the person we could model our own lives after, for being the strongest person we know, for reminding us that no matter how tough life is there is always sunshine on the other side, and for moulding us into the young women that we are today. Without you we'd be lost because you've enriched our lives in so many ways!
This bit  below perfectly sums up how much you mean to us.

The Marching Candy Cane

The vintage earring that I have on were the inspiration for the whole outfit. We really like the striped red dress with the marching band inspired jacket. And love how the stripes are vertical on the sides to give an hour glass illusion. We'd describe this outfit as "candy cane joins the marching band"!!

Peach Fizz

Just wore this pastel peach coloured top with some white acid wash jeans. Wore the grey peep toe booties to keep the whole colour pallet very light and toned down.

The Seal Rap Video!

Here is a way that you can take action and spread the word:

"If you've seen videos of the annual Canadian seal slaughter, it's easy to get super sick to your stomach and angry. Instead of just getting angry, take action. The seals need you to speak up for them! Click here to find out how!"

Sharing this video to spread more awareness about this issue again. It's really hard to imagine that people can be so barbaric. We just couldn't put up pictures cause it's really quite painful to look at so thought a funny video would be better to use.

The Tapered High Waisted Pant

High Waisted pants can really accentuate the waist, so to do that we paired these beige tapered pants with a black fitted top tucked in and a skinny belt. Even if you don't have high waisted pants but want that look wearing your mid high pants with a fitted top tucked in and slim belt can be just as effective. The best thing about high waisted pants other than the fact the they can be elongating is definitely that the whole muffin top ordeal can disappear with them on!!!!

White Pants, a Yellow Top and a Pearl Necklace!

Wore the Aldo Macedo platforms with the white pants and the bright yellow top to soak up all the sunshine in Edmonton!

Aldo Macedo

Been looking at this Aldo Macedo pair for a while, and recently found  it on sale!! We've been loving wooden platforms so we had to have it. Since clogs made a come back last Spring, we haven't been able to warm up to this trend (yet). Felt like this pair was a perfect way to warm up to the clog trend because the sole is a little clog inspired. We just love the cone shaped heel and the little stud detailing around it!!!

Marching Band Inspired Jacket and White Pants

Instead of sticking to the everyday jeans, paired this pink top (looks a little red here but it's hot pink) and black marching band inspired jacket with a pair of white pants. A lot of people have an aversion to white

Faux Leather Pants and Floral Bracelets!

These dark grey faux leather pants can make you feel incredibly edgy (like a little rock star lol). Just paired it up with a simple white shirt and these coral coloured pumps by Guess that I completely adore. Added that floral/coral linked bracelet to compliment the shoes since the rest of the outfit is incredibly neutral!
