Sugar & Spice & Everything Nice

I've always complained that there isn't enough feminine and girly clothes in stores these days.... What happened to flowy, pink, floral, and ruffles? Where are all the tea party dresses and twirly skirts? What can I wear when I want to feel pretty?

I've noticed in the last year or two that the clothes I have been longing for have finally made their way into my favourite stores and it's been getting better and better.
Perfect Example:
The new H & M Garden Collection.

I went into H & M yesterday and it was chaos surrounding this new collection and now I know why!

I narrowed it down and purchased this dress. It's adorable and for $19.95 you really can't go wrong!! And I did feel as though I was all set to go plant some beautiful flowers (hense garden collection).

Below: some other cute items from the collection. There are a number of items I have seen online that I adore, but haven't seen them in stores yet. Fingers crossed that they are on their way!

.... and just when I think my day can't get any better I walk by Town Shoes and come to a screeching halt infront of their Barbie by Town Shoes window display!!!! Was this collection made especially for me? The pink glitter. The gold heels and heart shaped peep toes.... Does girl world get any better than this?

Update: I have since also purchsed this dress:

Seriously! $19.95!!! Are you kidding me? :)

What I'm Loving Today....

I am loving Dove Ultimate Supreme Visibly Smooth Deodorant/Anti-Perspirant in "Nature Fresh." I recently purchased this deodorant and I have never loved the smell of a deodorant more then I love this one. It smells delicious!

Added Bonus: It is also hydrating and is supposed to help minimize the visual appearance of hair over time. I haven't been using it long enough to know if that is true but when I shave alot my under arms can become very dry, which is why I love that this deodorant feels very smooth and moisurizing. I'm anxious to see how this deo performs this summer. Bring on the heat!!

That Special "Something"

Awww poor Tenley.
Just finished watching the Season Finale of The Bachelor. Jake has chosen Vienna, leaving poor Tenley crying and confused.

At least she looked beautiful as she was getting her heart broken. That dress is to die for! Such a great colour and it hangs beautifully.

Now, I know nobody wanted Vienna to win but I have to admit, I understand why Jake picked her. I understand what he means when he says "There was something that just didn't feel right with Tenley" I myself have felt this way before.....when you know someone would be great for you, they are nice, attractive, would treat you amazing, but there's just "something" missing. It's hard to put into words what that "something" is but it's only in comparison to other situations where you felt that "something" that it all makes sense. There have been many times when I wanted so bad to feel something for a guy who I knew would be good for me. But you just can't fake that "something" no matter how hard you try. It's either there, or it isn't. I think alot of people settle for less because they either haven't felt that "something" before and don't know what they are missing, or maybe they are settling because they don't want to be alone.

Either way, I have never been a girl who could settle. In return I have spent more time as a single lady. I've learned that I'm happier being alone then being with a lover and feeling lonely.

When people settle they get bored, and when people get bored they cheat because there's "something" missing. Why not just be single if your not 100% into a relationship? Spare yourself and someone else alot of pain and wasted time.

Because you're not going to find Mr. Right while your wasting time with Mr. Wrong.

On a side note: I can't believe they picked Ali to be the next Bachelorette. I WILL NOT be watching that season. She was the most annoying girl on this season of the Bachelor. Brutal choice. All she did was cry about Vienna and then cry about her job. I want to see someone positive as the Bachelorette, someone who actually deserves it and wont be annoying to watch.

Birthday Beauty

Happy Birthday To Me!! Yup, it's that time of the year again. I am now officially 24 years old. All of a sudden birthdays aren't as welcome as they use to be..... 24 just sounds too old!!

I've posted pictures from my Birthday night out. Here I am with my hair curled and clipped up on one side.

I have lined my eyes with black M.A.C. Fluidline

I've also used Joe Fresh Lipstain in "Candy".

I received alot of compliments on this dress from Urban Behaviour. I love the pretty mauve colour and the bow on the shoulder is my favourite. Also, please note my new booties!! Found them 50% off at Spring :) They are exactly what I was looking for.


I have to do a post about yesterdays Canadian Mens Hockey Olympic Gold Medal game. Such an INSPIRING win! What an amazing game and moment for Canada. Also, what a way to end the Olympics!!!
I am a hockey fan, I enjoy watching leaf games and I have watched some of the Olympics but yesterdays game takes the cake as my favourite hockey moment of all time.
What an intense game! Down to the very last second. I really wasn't suprised when the Americans scored in the last seconds to tie the game. But going into overtime I was biting my nails in suspense. That game could have easily went either way.

Then all of a sudden, out of nowhere SIDNEY CROSBY to the RESCUE!!! I tried to send a text as soon as they had scored and I think everyone in the world had the same idea, the text would not go through. I'm surprised the cell phone companies systems didn't crash. If anyone was to get that goal I am glad it was Crosby. To see how happy he was and the celebration after and the relief I think every Canadian felt that we won was definitly priceless.

I can't get over how much Sidney Crosby has accomplished in his life and he is only 22 years old!!! A Stanley Cup and an Olympic Gold Medal? Talk about talent. Not to mention he is a total stud. A guy with that much talent and determination. Totally sexy.

Sidney Crosby is definitly pretty.
