164.







Hi y'all! I'm finally done school for the summer. Hallelujah. No more exams, boring lectures or papers. I am freeee! To celebrate we went out to dinner and I wore this fabulous dress I got from ASOS. It was beautiful today so I felt it was appropriate. I wanted to keep it simple so minimal accessories for this outfit. It was too hot to wear a cardigan as well! I've gotten comfortable with my arms the past few months so I'm happy to say that I dressed how I wanted without feeling insecure. I felt very "Mad Men" with my Derek Cardigan cat-eye glasses as well. I'm obsessed with glasses, I think I need an intervention. :(

Well, since we're on the topic of dresses I might as well give my opinion on the dress. I love how it looks and feels. It runs true to size, but I feel like the dress is missing something... like lining? It feels cheap, the fabric. It's rough and not soft at all. It's cotton so it's breathable but I felt like I was wearing a very fancy table cloth - that's how the material felt like. I guess you can't tell by looking at it. That's my only gripe about it. I feel modest and I'm not mooning everyone with this dress which tends to be the case with a lot of ASOS dresses. This dress did not run short at all! All in all, it's a good price on sale right now for about $30 USD, so if you were wondering if you should take the plunge, do it! I give it 4/5 stars.

So see you next time! Now that I'm done school I have more time to write.

Not much to say except here's an outfit post. I am absolutely in love with these ASOS chinos. They wrinkle pretty easily (and are too big in the thighs) but I don't give a hoot. I love how it's gold and ugh, LOVE IT. I feel so 70's wearing it, hehe. I'm so glad that I snagged the last pair off the ASOS sale website! :3

162. (Giveaway Winner!)







I'm going to have a sale. Eventually. When this stupid CANADIAN postal strike ENDS! Ugh. I don't want to lose my packages and it's just slower. I'm sorry for those (like my penpals) that I'm taking so long to send stuff, by the way. On the subject of shipping stuff via postal service, I did decide on a giveaway winner for my ring giveaway. My computer is being stupid and won't let me print screen but I did the random.org generator and the winner is...


#50: Jamie of Hip Oh!.

I will be contacting you now.

I will be having another giveaway soon.
I am also opening a food blog. With recipes. I'm actually gonna stick to it this time... I'll give the link when I format it and such, but I'll also be posting food porn in there as well. For the time being here's some sushi that me and my friends had recently:

Nigiri sushi.

Sushi rolls!

Everything is second hand except the top that I bought from some random shop at the mall.

Yes I'm making another post. I should've uploaded this last week but I didn't. So does it even merit it's own post? I guess yeah. I don't even know what to say because I've said all I said about everything on my last post. So here's an outfit I wore last week. I don't even remember where I wore it to. The only thing I do remember was my mom commenting that she could see through my skirt. Oops. I should buy a half-slip. But I do love the skirt, one of my favourite finds ever. Pity that it's transparent.

Someone said to me at school, "Wow! You're really colourful!" Indeed, I was. Too bad these photos don't do it justice. It's not my fault, actually. It's shitty outside and as I type this, it's dark and it's raining up a storm. Guh.

If you don't want to listen to my political rants, DO NOT READ BELOW. I am a very liberal person so if your political views are different than mine and you get offended by it, DON'T READ.

I had a decent day. I skipped school unintentionally because I slept at 2 am last night (no good) and then I went to work. Anyways, in class there was a political debate about pro-choice/pro-life.

I know I'm going on a political tangent but PRO-CHOICE DOES NOT EQUAL PRO-DEATH. I'm sorry, but I actually get really offended and angry at the pro-life people who give their woman-shaming, misogynistic arguments. I could go on a whole rant about what I think... but I won't because I'll make other people uncomfortable. There's being a pro-lifer and being respectful and not bashing women and being sexist, you know? I respect that. I don't respect bashing and victim blaming. Bleh. The thing I'm most frustrated THE most is that the professor allowed the students to choose that topic. It triggers people. There was rape victim blaming. Makes the feminist and decent human being in me boil in rage. But wait, there's more! On Thursday they're going to debate about HOMOSEXUAL MARRIAGE? THERE DOESN'T NEED TO BE A DEBATE ON THAT. Man I am so angry, but alas, I cannot do anything about it. Except rant about it on my blog.





Boyfriend got a promotion today so he took us out to sushi. Here's some pics. Haha! Until next time, people! ;)

159. (Would you like some mustard?)



Long time no outfit post.
As always, busy with life, busy with school. I've unfortunately caught the stomach flu but I'm on the stage of recovery (still not 100%). I wore this to go out to buy something with my boyfriend. I opted for something no-fuss and casual. I love shorts, I'm obsessed. I love mustard yellow, it's one of my favourite colours but I don't even have lots of yellow things! (I should remedy that right away... haha). I re-discovered this thrifted Yves St. Laurent top.

The outfit is simple, but I like. Remixed everything too! Not very exciting but I try to distance myself from other fatshion/fashion blogs out there who post their looks only when they're dolled up. I'm trying to be me, trying to showcase my outfits for an everyday look. That's what I look for in a blog when I'm reading one and that's what I aim for here. :)

Oh, and if you haven't entered please enter my Ring Giveaway. I will be closing entries next week. ALSO, please follow all the rules. Posts that don't have links or e-mails don't count.

158. (Ring Giveaway)

Hey everyone, long time no post. No outfit post today. I'm sick, feeling under the weather and also I've been busy at school. I had the hardest exam ever yesterday, but even then, I still have more summer classes until June. With that being said, I just want to update to announce a giveaway.









Too lazy to edit/crop the pictures, I don't have photoshop but here's the photos of the products.

I'm giving away 4 different rings (from Wholesale-Dress.net) to one winner. They're adjustable, I think they look fly, and I have one myself (well I was going to keep the red one for myself but realised it doesn't suit my aesthetic) ... I bought these with my own money and they are not sponsored by anyone in any way. This giveaway was long overdue, my blog's birthday was on April 17th but I never bothered announcing it, so think of this as a belated giveaway for my blog and also, for me hitting 400 followers (now at 480), I believe I was supposed to do a giveaway when I hit 400. So there you go.

All you have to do is leave a comment with your e-mail address or blog link on this post and you are entered.


However if you want more chances to win, here's some other ways to get more entries (make sure to give me your usernames, if applicable!):

- Follow my blog via Google Follower
- Follow my blog via Bloglovin'
- Follow my twitter account
- "Like" my Facebook Page
- Advertise my giveaway on a blog post
- Tweet: I just entered @gazelma 's ring giveaway on http://bonjourgazel.com!


For those following extra entries, please make additional comments, it's easier to count that way. :)


Thanks for reading. More giveaways in the near future!
