Mini Splurge

Today, I decided to travel to the heart of downtown Toronto and visit my 3 favourite stores! 

I got these cute fishie measuring cups at Anthropologie as they were on sale. As much as I love this store, I am an unemployed student. It's so hard going in there and not being able to buy the stuff I love so much. 

At Urban Outfitters, I didn't find much I liked, so I only got this cute miniature clock. 
It's actually a lot smaller than it looks. It's approx. 4.5 inches in length.
Like most things I buy, it was on sale for only $3!! What a deal!

At forever 21, I bought this adorable floral strapless dress along with a cute floral tank top that defined your waist and the bottom part of it was flowly.
I've been really liking the floral trend. It's all that I've been buying. 
J told me to relax on the floral cause he thought everything I was buying looked like something in my closet already....

After endlessly walking up and down Yonge street, we settled on a japanese place, Toko Sushi. We thought it was just a typical jap restaurant, but when we went in, there was a sushi conveyor belt!! It's so exciting to see those! Basically there's different plates of sushi, and it's on a moving conveyor belt. The food just comes to you!

Just a thought...

I remember very clearly that when I was 8 years old, I told my parents that as soon as I turned 18, I would go and live on my own. That dream was quickly shattered by their lecturing the financial costs that my dream would require. But in the end, I guess it did happen, since I had to move to another city to continue on with my post secondary education.

After 8 months of freedom and responsibilities, I am now back at home until school starts again. It's incredibly hard to adjust your lifestyle that just consisted of yourself to one that now has 3 extra people. Now you have people eating your food, taking your clothes, bothering you, and so on. On top of that, my parents decided to leave for a 6 week vacation, and left me with my 16 year old sister. When I used to babysit, I was told that age 2 was the worst, thus the saying the "terrible twos." However, I actually think 16 is way worst. At least when they're 2, you have control over them. But with 16, you have deal with their attitude. So not only do I have to be the house maid, I also have to deal her awful attitude and so called "logical" arguments. I can say that since my parents left, I have not done through a day without a headache. 

When I lived with my roommate, I use to get slight agitated when they didn't clean up their messes. I'm a firm believer in "you make the mess, you clean it." But compared the sister, my roommates dont stand a chance. She has the nerves to leave dirty bowls and plates in bedroom for 5 days before taking it downstairs and leaving it in the sink for another 3. Although I force her to was her own dishes, she only does so when her side of sink is so full that you can't put another item in it. Don't get me started on her invasion of every room except mine in the house...

I've survived for 5 weeks, there's only 7 more days. I feel that I'm an elastic stretched to its limit. Hopefully I wont snap in the remainder week. 

At least dinner was good :) 
 Nothing like a nice salad with homemade honey garlic drumsticks!

I'm in the midst of deciding if I should meet J downtown tomorrow (and perhaps go a little early to do some retail therapy) or if I should meet him at the station up here. Hmm....

My idol♥

Taylor Swift was in Toronto on Friday and Saturday. Luckily I got tickets 30 minutes before her last show. So thankful that everything happened this way. I was a bit hesitant at first because of the prices and I didn't want to get too excited since we didn't have tickets yet. You know, the bigger hope you have, the bigger chance of disappointment. But as soon as she came out, I knew I made the right choice. I'm not sure why, but once she came out, I started crying. Tears just flowed out and I couldn't stop it. The whole thing was just so surreal. It was the best concert ever!

So classy and genuinely down to earth!

A side note of joy

Today, I got my first ever comment!! When I first started this blog (which was 3 days ago), I thought that no one would ever visit and read about little things that occur in my life. Having this one comment inspires me more to continue with this blog, and to learn more about blogging. Hopefully one day, my blog will be similar to the ones that I read everyday!

Thank you Fallon for being my first comment! I love your blog so much, it's such an inspiration! :)

Things that make my heart beat a little faster


J.♥ ♥

The beginning...

I am embarrassed to say that I am pretty clueless (or as my gaming boyfriend would say: noob) to the world of blogging. I would love for a fellow blogger to reach out and assist me, but I'm not the type of wait. So I've decided to take matter into my own hands and email some bloggers who I have followed for quite some time, and ask for their help.  decided to instead, google it up! And figure it out on my own, slowly but surely, I will get it!

Fingers crossed! :)
