Hate, love, hate hate hate love

Everywhere I go,
The only thing I see
Is beautiful people...

This weekend was super busy at my work!  We had our grand opening patio party on Thursday and I have been working tons saving up a ton of money.  I haven't had a chance to go shopping in so long, I am going tomorrow since I have a day off!

I haven't gotten any outfits shot or anything like that but I did snap a few pictures on my phone lately so I thought I'd share a quick update!

Weather is finally warmer and I have lots of plans for this summer!  What are yours?

The guy at Starbucks told me that my coffee matches my hair!  Iced white mocha mmmm.

Close up on my mom's vintage necklace.  She got it as a gift from my grandparents when she was 13.  If you lift it up to look at it it shows you the time so it hangs upside down.  It has no battery and the wind-up stopped working years ago, but I still love it!

First two pictures:
Dress - H&M
Bracelets - Smart Set

Second two:  
Dress - Club Monaco
Jacket - Garage

Belt - Vintage (mom's)
Where I keep my accessories for work!   This is most of my gold jewelry, I usually wear silver.

Love & friendship

Love changes and best friends become strangers

Late at night I get thinking about life and what truly makes life worth living: friends and love.  Everyone is brought up differently with different values, role models and aspirations.  Relationships begin, grow, change, end, and sometimes they last.  Often your family will play a role in how you build relationships.  Being an only child is different from having siblings; brothers and sisters can also affect how one behaves in a relationship.

For example, a man who has a sister can be much more empathetic towards a woman's needs and everyday issues.  A woman with brothers may be able to relate to men more on a primal level. A woman with sisters who are much more successful and good looking than she is may feel like everything has to be a competition and she may not ever feel good enough.  She may allow a man to dither and go for other women as long as she still feels secure because he comes home to her.  An only child may be like this too, because they often look for attention, money, and security because they are so used to being spoiled.  It takes a real superstar parent to raise an only child without them becoming shallow. 

I do not mean to stereotype but I have had friends who put up with all sorts of disgusting behaviour from their men, who showed different values than what I cherish.  I believe in true love, honesty, respect and loyalty.  I do not tollerate people in my life who do not honour the same qualities.  I have really cared for people who have misunderstood my actions and made assumptions about me without proof.  They have shown a true face of materialistic and shallow morals in the end.  I am friends (to an extent) with most people I have dated but men who have cheated and lied or two-timed me do not make the cut.  You cannot control who you have feelings for but you can control who you let in your life.

Life is short, I love it every day, I have so much love to give and it really is a shame when it gets wasted.

Just a few memories from the past!
They make you who you are today.
And I am so thankful for what I have learned and for who I still have in my life <3 



Working girl

I am never surprised by other people's behaviour, but I am often disappointed.

Quick photo of me at my new job, Earl's!  I love it so much, it is a chain from out West and there is a great staff and the food and atmosphere are incredible.  I am working about 45 hours a week so sorry for the lack of updates!  It has been raining nonstop too I can not wait for it to to start to be beautiful out like it was today!  We had the doors open up to the patio and I loved it because I am just such a summer girl.  I am wearing so many colours when I can now because all I wear at work is black.

The seasonal dress code is gold, tan and animal print accessories.

Photo taken the other day.
I love mixing up my belts, accessories, and outfits!  We have to wear heels so I found a comfy one inch wedge, they are a lifesaver.
Arm candy!
This dress is from Beyond the Rack.  It was 20$ and I love it!
My collection of arm bangles is growing since they help accessorize my work outfits.  I had to get a new jewelry box to put them in, I will show you how they are displayed soon.
I used to think that silver jewelry only looked good on me, but my gold collection is growing now too, it is nice sometimes to mix it up!

Leaving my house to go to work super tired!  Hot pink lipstick was a gift from an old friend.

I have been going out a lot too but when I drink I am horrible with my camera!  My girlfriends owe me a ton of pictures so I hope to get those up soon.  Going to take the Rebel out of her shell soon too!  I am stacking a ton of cash and saving for a trip to Europe.  I plan to go with a bunch of girlfriends maybe in August.  I hope everyone in Canada is having a great long weekend!
