Sweet Sixteen for Two Best Friends

Recently, two of my friends celebrated their sixteenth birthdays together, and had a little party. Those of us who were invited all pitched in some money for each girl's present. The two girls actually gave me permission to photograph the gifts before I wrapped them, so I thought I'd share the presents that we ended up getting, because I'm personally really happy with the quality of the presents we bought, and I know that my friends that we gave the presents to are very, very happy as well!

"Pamper Evening" | Exam Season De-Stress

Anyone who's gone through a week of exams—whether they were really hard or not that bad—knows how stressful it can be. I actually have exams coming up in less than a month, but I'm not to the point of studying a whole lot or stressing out... yet. This kind of "pamper evening" seems to be really popular on the internet, but I personally have them once in a while to de-stress and relax, and also to remember to care for my personal well-being and my skin. If I ever get stressed out about something, I tend to neglect "pampering" myself, so it's nice to set aside an hour or two on a not-so-busy-night and just indulge in some relaxation time!

OOTD | If Canadian Winters Weren't So Cold...

Canadian winters are really cold and snowy, so I'm usually wearing so many layers that it's hard to care much about fashion. Today, I was inside all day, but I felt like being a bit more dressed up than my pyjamas and robe, so I put together a simple outfit of the day :)
