This week flew by for me so quickly. It almost felt like a 4-day work week. What are everyone’s plans for the Labour Day weekend? Just moments ago the boyfriend and I were out on the balcony watching the thunder storm. It was so relaxing. He had a brewski, me a water. Haven’t ate supper yet — I should get on that.

ootwwHope everyone stays safe this long Labour Day weekend. I do want to address one thing though.

I still see people in cars as I’m driving, with the driver texting, or talking on their cell up to their ear. No hands free. Earlier this week I almost got t-boned on a round-about by a person who didn’t yield, and I noticed he was talking on his cell. My horn was’a blarin, let me tell you that much.

I know there’s many of you out there who text and drive. Some of you even write about it on social media. I can’t believe some of you admit you’re doing it.

Please. Watch this video and reconsider texting and driving.

Have a safe long weekend.

Taking photos outside, you’ll never mimic the same type of sunlight. That and the fact that Monday – Wednesday were at completely different times (ranging from 6:30am photos to 8:00am) so obviously the lighting will be a bit different from day to day. So some of my photos are nice daylight looking while others are blue or red. Pain in my butt. I’m sure you all really noticed the photo colors ;)ootww

The other day at work just flew right on by. Probably because we basically worked half the day! No joke.

From 8am-10am my Marketing Team & I had to be out of the office for a presentation of sorts at the local Holiday Inn. Boy, has it changed since I’ve been there last (uh… the 80s?). Loving their leather chairs and the warm red hues on the wall. I’m looking at decorating our balcony for next summer. Thinking of stuff like a set of cushions outdoor with some fun stripey or printed patterns. I bet I could find a bunch on sale since it’s end of season.Holiday Inn

Since we usually have our team meetings on Wednesday, we decided to keep the routine going but rather than do it in office, have it while eating a nice breakfast out at a restaurant! Get this. I found it funny. The server didn’t laugh as hard as I did, when ordering it: A vegetarian omelet with… bacon (and a side of bacon). Bacon in my omelet, bacon on the side. No better way.

When my boss & co-worker went out to their cars, the server came over and leaned into me. Saying “You has a beautiful smile. Where you from by the way?” Of course, me being friendly (what else is there to be, really?) I said “THANKS! Newfoundland. Tee hee.” In my head I was saying “Uhh. I’m from taken city. Thanks“.

It was a delicious breakfast and I didn’t feel like taking a photo of it all. The portions were massive and by the time lunch rolled around I wasn’t hungry. I went out to Target to spend my gift card that I won at work and rather than keeping it to the $20 limit that my card was worth, I of course… spent a good fiddy bucks. What the hey? Couldn’t help it. They were having clearance on everything. My favorite underwear were 50% off (usually $5 each, which is still inexpensive in my mind for the comfiest underwear on the planet. Gillgan and O’Malley, I love you). Look for this tag! You won’t ever regret it:gilligan omalley
Undies. Got a cute pair of socks. A bra (again — by Gilligan and O’Malley) that has a front closure which is PHENOMINAL. A mars bar (not shown. It’s in my belly). And some Up & Up brand of disinfecting wipes. Anyone go through these as fast as I do? I use them for spills, and quick clean ups around the apartment. They’re the cheapest I’ve seen for the quantity. Don’t buy the Walmart brand. They feel so dry and plasticy right out of the package.

Today I’m bringing a new snack with me to work. I’m excited to dig into them. Remember my post about healthy snacking tips, and showed you the Kind bars in one of them? Erin, from KIND somehow found my website and e-mailed me asking if I’d like to try out some of their new flavors. Ain’t gonna turn that shiz down! Those KIND bars are superior to any other energy/granola on the market in my opinion. Plus, they’re two bucks a pop. Not the cheapest, which is why I wait for a sale to buy them. Anyway. As I said. Excited to dig into them either my morning or afternoon snack. Probably sooner than later as it’s already calling to me. Oof.dark choc chili kind bar

I stayed home from work yesterday as I was feeling under the weather. But today so far has been so very productive. Sweet moses is all I can say.


Each Friday I sit at my computer and put up the outfit’s of the work week. But I’m a multitasker when I do that. Got my breakfast ready and waiting to eat while I edit.

jujube-cake jujube-cake2Oh, and I also made jujube cake (really like a bread consistency) while I was at it. I know. I’m going to bring some to work with me shortly.

Onto the fashion friday / outfits of the work week.


What are your plans for the weekend?
