Chatelaine-isk Salad

I just wanted to make a quick post about lunch today, I sent this pic to my cousin and she told me it looked like it came out of  Chatelaine magazine. So i thought hey why not post this beauty. Its a simple aAsiansalad of my own creation. It has croutons,  spinach leaves, red and green cabbage and some edamame beans to top it off. Super fast and delicious and I got to watch one of my fav movies "A Maid In Manhattan" ughh I love JLo in this, one of her best in my opinion.
Thanks for reading:)

Cute packaging

Quick post today.
I love how Aritzia packages their shipments. One of the cutest and unique packages I've gotten thus far. This is from a couple weeks ago when Aritzia had their end of summer sale. One of their best sales I might add lots of nice things and for really good prices and the best part they almost always have sizes. Thats it for today. It's pretty grey out and I have to go to work .... sucks but what are you going to do.
Thanks for reading :)

17 First Kisses

Author: Rachael Allen
Stars: 4 out of 5

Back of the Book
No matter how many boys Claire kisses, she can’t seem to find a decent boyfriend. Someone who wouldn’t rather date her gorgeous best friend, Megan. Someone who won’t freak out when he learns about the tragedy her family still hasn’t recovered from. Someone whose kisses can carry her away from her backwoods town for one fleeting moment.

Until Claire meets Luke.

But Megan is falling for Luke, too, and if there’s one thing Claire knows for sure, it’s that Megan’s pretty much irresistible.

With true love and best friendship on the line, Claire suddenly has everything to lose. And what she learns—about her crush, her friends, and most of all herself—makes the choices even harder.

In her moving debut, Rachael Allen brilliantly captures the complexities of friendship, the struggles of self-discovery, and the difficulties of trying to find love in high school. Fans of Sarah Ockler, Susane Colasanti, and Stephanie Perkins will fall head over heels for this addictive, heartfelt, and often hilarious modern love story.

My Review
I managed to read most of the book in one sitting, such a fun and well written YA book. 

I like how the book bounces between present situations of the new crush of Claire and her past kisses and problems following every boy she ever kissed from since second grade. 

Claire learns in her last year of high school the pact she made with her best friend to do something different may have backfired for her. She fights for the new guys attention and after initially losing the battle she gets him, but the cost is her best friend. Claire starts to realize that maybe the guy wasn't worth the friendship, her family learns that shes going to the rival school instead of following in the footsteps of her mother and father. Towards the end of the book her entire family has healed from losing her baby brother after 11 months of life. 

I like the book and I ate the story up. Plus I'm a sucker for happy endings and she makes a pact to date her long time best friend Sam after they graduate college.

Hitting Pan with Revlon Nearly Naked Powder

For the first time I've hit pan. I'm pretty happy because this is one of my go to, never fail, never leave the house (only when I'm wearing makeup) products. I have crazy oily skin that gets oily by just walking outdoors. So to keep my face matte all day long I have my trusty powder. It was my mom who actually got me into powders, and it has stuck with me ever since. The fact that the powder is tinted means on lazy days I don't even put on tinted moisturizer or foundation on my skin.
I guess it will be time to get  new one but until then i'll use this sucker until there's nothing left.
Have you ever hit pan on any product before? if so what was it?
Thanks for reading :)

The Last of Summer . . . The CNE

Always a tradition to end of summer and the sign of the start of school. The cne which is a carnival of games and ride and everything deep fried and dripping that saturated goodness. Long weekend is the best time to go every thought it is jam packed there is lots to do and see, plus an airshow right above.

Recently with the start of school I've had no time for anything, I barely sleep if thats a sign, and I got sick right after I went. Hopefully I'm back up and running by next week.
