Heart On My Sleeve

It's May long weekend in Canada, and I'm looking forward to three days of relaxing! So far JP and have watched three movies. Two last night (Clash of the Titans and John Carter) and today we went to the theatre to watch The Avengers. The rest of the weekend will probably be dedicated to more movies and reruns of Arrested Development. 

Next weekend is already my 10 km run! I can't believe it's almost here. I'm really glad that I decided to start running. I'm definitely going to continue to train once the run is over next weekend. I want to start working towards a half-marathon.

I'm so excited to share a fun collaboration I did with west 49 last week! I had the opportunity to check out West49's new summer collection and put together a summer outfit. Luckily this past weekend was full of warm and sunny summer weather, so I couldn't wait to break out my new shorts and tank top combo that I picked out! Iv'e already worn this tank top several times over the weekend. It's so soft! I love the pattern and think it's the perfect summer music festival top. This bag is also the perfect beach bag, and I can't wait to tote all my beach gear in it when I head to the community lake or go camping this summer.

Below are some of my other favourite pieces from the West49 summer collection. I can't stop thinking about the black and white tribal inspired dress! I tried it on in store and the sleeve are slightly flared which I loved. I just might have to go back and get it.

So many new and exciting things have been happening in my life! I've been so busy I haven't had much of a chance to update this blog regularly, but I'm hoping that I can get back into the swing of things soon. The most exciting news I have to share is that I got into graduate school! I'll be starting a masters in counselling psychology in the fall! I seriously can't wait to be back in school! The other big news is that JP and I bought a house! We are building and should also be moving in the fall, so fall is going to be crazy around here.

Above are just a few more of the things I've been up to lately.

 I thought I'd do a little update post on some of the things I've been up to lately.

My cousin and I went to Market Collective together again in April. This time around we bought terrariums. We were going to buy these really cool bucket gardens, but decided that we might attempt to make them on our own first.

Our favourite part of MC is the photo booth!

The Fashion Program at Olds College held a spring fashion show at South Centre Mall and Jen and I from PARK went to check it out. It was fun to see a show in such a casual atmosphere. Afterwards Jen and I grabbed lunch and shopped al little.

My little sister and I had a girls day last weekend and she loves to get me to ask "Siri" silly questions on my phone. Here are a couple of the funnier conversations with Siri. Haha. 

Last night I met up with some friends from my nutrition/fittness teaching job. I've been so busy with my new job and haven't been able to work much at my other job, so it was really nice to catch up and see them. We started out by grabbing dinner on 17th ave, then later grabbed a tea and sat outside chatting. I bought a pair of mint coloured jeans from Zara and couldn't wait to wear them out!

new mint jeans! 
And that's the update from the last couple of weeks.
