Hello people! I don't really have an exciting introduction or rambling of whatever is on my mind. So, I will just jump to the bait. (How does that catchphrase go? You know? The one about jumping to... the end. But not. Seriously, if anyone know what I'm implying, could you please share to me the proper words?) Anyways...
Yesterday: The fam-jam and I headed off to Toronto (about an hour away from where we live) to hit the exhibition with some of our extended family. While the older sector of the group went to hear Bill Clinton, us youngsters looked around. There was a lot of cool stuff, but the highlight for us was spending hours at the giant warehouse sale! Lots of signs with "3 for $10" and "50%" calling our names... It was a lot of fun!
Some night shots I took at night...
We wasted a ridiculously large amount of money ($12!) playing these carnival games, winning nothing, but a tiny stuffed elephant. Discovery - don't buy into the carnival games - they all have catches! Discover 2 - I have really bad aim. Just saying..

All in all, it was an awesome Saturday!
Today - I always feel like Sundays were invented to be leisurely days. To spend some time with the family, and perhaps go on a stroll, visiting quaint little shops and frolicking through the parks. Unfortunately, the day was rather dowdy so "parks" were out of question. I went downtown, but discovered that "visiting quaint little shops" were out of question as they were all closed. So, I spent the majority of my Sunday sewing - I finished this denim skirt (which I will post very soon) and a puffy skirt (which will be coupled with the tutorial) for my sister. (By the way - I started typing the tutorial as part of this post, but my eyelids slowly started to shut close and as I read what I wrote, I didn't even know what I was saying. Moral of the story, the tutorial will be out soon!)
(Military Blazer - Value Village $7, Pink skirt - "Pacific Mall" $7, Tights - H&M $5, Socks - AEO, Shoes - Mum's)
Stole this bag from my mum's closet. Well, no. I borrowed it without asking and plan on letting it rest in my room :). My new-found love are bags with extra-long straps, so you simply let it hang over your shoulder. Much easier than handbags!
(Bag - NYC $10)
Purchased this funky ring at the warehouse sale yesterday!
(Ring - $5)
It was a pretty uneventful Sunday, but still enjoyable!
Today's shout out goes to my 13 twitter-followers! You guys rock. I'm so happy you guys care about what I'm doing each moment of the day :)
I still don't get your point. I feel as though I'm typing stuff to make myself more stalk-able for the general public.
And I'm peeved about the fact that my name is too long and I have to combine "with" and "the," which just looks stupid.
Nonetheless, you guys are seriously awesome. Thanks for making me feel like I'm not just typing random ramblings to myself. Haha. Anyways, I grant you guys permission to stalk - ahem, "follow" - me via twitter! Also, shoutout to All My Love for doing me a feature on her blog. Check out her blog - it's brand new, adorable, and I'm sure she'd love your support! Okay, I promise for the skirt tutorial soon, as well as an outfit post with some of my new finds/ new skirt sewed!
What did you do this weekend?
