Spring was so up and down for me this year emotionally, and it’s probably because of the outrageous weather this year in Canada. One day it could be 20°C and the next day it could be 1°C. We’ve finally gotten to the point where it’s warmer more often, but c’mon! This winter it literally never ending this year! But I thought I’d share some of the things I’ve been loving over the past few months.
For my birthday in April, I asked Cree to buy me the Topshop Joni Jeans in black, because I was in dire need of good quality, high-waisted jeans. And let me tell you, the hype over them is nothing short of accurate. I absolutely love them! They don’t bag around your bum or thighs the more you wear them, they are so stretchy so you can wear them on your pasta-eating nights, and literally anything can be paired with them. I could go on all day about how much I love them, and if you don’t have a pair, I recommend splurging a little and getting yourself some!
Getting out my spring wardrobe
Along with the purchase of my joni jeans, I’ve been able to wear them with all my cute little crop tops and blouses, and pair it with my old beloved denim jacket. I’ve been absolutely LOVING not wearing my heavy winter coat and boots, and just throwing on my leather or denim jacket and converse. YAY for summer!
Which meant getting outside more!
With the weather warming up and being more comfortable in my clothing choices, has meant getting outside in the sunshine more. The other day I literally sat out on my balcony in my pyjama shorts and got a little tan started. It was so good! There’s nothing like soaking up some vitamin D, listening to the birds chirp and looking around seeing all the flowers. Agh, I just love this time of year!
For the cooler days however, me and Cree have non-stop binged on Westworld Season 1 (we’re now officially caught up) and let me tell you, it’s amazing! If you love futuristic-type shows then you’ll love this one! Without giving too much away, the story line is about a theme-park run by robots, but it taps into the robots lives and follows the tourists to live out their fantasies without any “real life” consequences.
This is kind of a boring favourite, but up until recently I haven’t really enjoyed eyeshadow. We went to an emo-themed party at the end of March, and obviously had to do extreme black smokey eyes. I guess this is when my experimenting started, I’ve been smoking out my crease colour more, and adding a more intense lid colour. I’ve just been loving all things eyeshadow! lol
Now that summer is coming, smoothies are a great way to get your vitamins in on those more warmer days. They’re great to pack with your favourite fruits, add some spinach and your choice of healthy liquid, and you’re good to go! So easy and quick 🙂 My go-to has recently been banana, frozen mixed berries, spinach and either almond milk or water. Delicious!
Let me know what you’ve been loving recently! I’d love to know 🙂
Love always, Courtney
