Palm Trees and Amusement Parks

Happy Sunday! It's almost the end of the summer, and what better way than to spend the rest of it under the sun? Amusement parks, duh.. Although these images were taken when I was in LA at the end of February, I just had to share it with you as I will be going to CNE (aka The Ex) tonight. This annual event marks the end of this hot season, and is very known for its crazy, unhealthy, yet amazing food! Reading Narcity articles is part of my daily routine and they've written a list of mouthwatering dishes here. Tell me, doesn't a Churro Burger sounds so dangerously good? It's like a two-in-one deal - lunch and dessert. Both sweet and savoury. I'll definitely be having some of that!

Summer Wall Inspiration

Do you ever wake up and get out of bed full of inspiration in front of you? Literally right in front of your eyes. I do! I do! Back in my old apartment, I decided to put up a gallery wall in the corner of the living room. Mainly because I used to hang around in the living room too much. Since moving to a new place a year ago, I find myself isolating in the bedroom more often. It's just more quiet and helps me focus more on doing work (or watching my TV series). When I discovered these travel art prints from Indigo, I knew I wanted to buy more that relates to each city. Paris and New York are my top two favourite cities. So when I finally got the chance to visit both, I had to purchase a few prints from local artists. One exception on this wall is the NYC skyline (top right) - which I got from Toronto's very own Ave Mariabell Designs.

Heatwave in Toronto

Oh Canada, our home and native land... I love you and all, but I just can't deal with these extreme weather alerts! Extreme heat in the summer, and extreme cold during winter. When will it ever be just right? All we can do it dress appropriately to survive ;P Toronto has been on a heat warning for the past week, and will continue to be hoooot in the next few days! I think dresses are a closet staple in order to stay cool without making you resort to wearing a tiny piece of fabric. You know, skintight tank tops and insanely short shorts. It's true lightweight pieces are great for the summer, but the key thing is to wear loose clothing. The less fabric that touches your skin, the more it'll feel less hot. Mainly because there's plenty of room for air to circulate, which then gives space for your skin to breathe. Choose the ones that are made out of natural fibers!
