Christmas Eve

Merry Christmas!! 

I just had a wonderful evening filled with lots of baking and eating. My favourite. Here are a few snap shots of the tree and a cute little present. I love the wrapping paper. 



My first time taking a picture of the Tree with the pretty blurred effect also known as Bokeh. I like it and hope to take more cute pictures like this in the Future. I also hope to post more often but refuse to feel guilty that I am not. 

Anyways I hope all you of have the Happiest of Christmases and eat lots of treats...I sure am. :) 

Apple picking and pumpkin saving

One of the very first things I have crossed off my list is apple picking and boy was it a beautiful day to go. The trees just started to change colours and the weather was still warm enough to go without a coat. 


GIant Jack O'Lattern 

My little brother ran into the pumpkin field to "SAVE ALL THE PUMPKINS". Let me tell you this boy is obsessed with pumpkins and from the middle of September until January that is all he talks about. Yes his obsession with pumpkin beats his love for Santa. 
My Pumpkin and what I wore. 

Little white one
We had a good day and bought loads and loads of apples for baking and pumpkins for pumpkin jam. I've been working a lot lately and that has been consuming my time on top of school, but I am trying my best to take the season in and enjoy every moment without worrying about what I haven't done yet while doing something that I wanted to do.....(does this sentence even make sense) Oh well

On a completely different note but related to October and its awesomeness. I have been super busy building my Halloween costume. The bestest day of Fall. I am going to be a LIGHTHOUSE. Yup it is epic and yes I am that weird. :) 

Fall Goals

Fall is here and I already feel like it is coming and going to fast. So before I get anxious about not doing the things I want to do this season, I wrote everything down on a list that I will continue to add too. Last year I missed out on my favourite season so this year I want to make sure I make the best of it.

Starting with the most fantastic coffee mug. I think I am going to pinch myself over and over for not buying more of these mugs when I had the chance, even more pinching because I had (and have) a Starbucks employee discount. BOO!  They haven't been releasing cute seasonal mugs like this lately so I will forever regret not buying several more. On a side note I went on ebay to see if I could snatch up a few and they were selling them for $55....craziness. 


  • Lots of BAKING!!! 
I love to bake, I bake for pleasure and I honestly enjoy baking. I stress bake and it really does wonders to my mood, except when someone puts away my measuring cups all wrong and I swear I feel like the Hulk. Don't touch my measuring cups. You have been warned. 
  • Drink lots and lots of Tea. 
Lately all I want is tea. I drink my morning coffee and for the rest of the day I want tea which for me is really weird considering I was a huge coffee junkee and now the thought of a latte is not as appetizing unless I am with someone special and can actually throughly enjoy drinking it over good conversation. 
My Favourite tea right now is Toasted Walnut from Davids Tea. It is Fall and winter in a mug. Seriously go and try it. 
  • Take lots of Pictures
I have a new camera and I intend to not only use it for school but to take pretty pictures...well hopefully. 
  • Apple Picking and Hazelnut Picking 
A seasonal favourite, its that time again when my family goes out to the farms and gather the food we will need for the next 2 seasons. Apple picking and Hazelnut picking outings are my favourite because we usually stop and get Krispy Kreme coffee and their coffee is the bomb. Love it.
  • Pumpkin Jam
Not to brag or anything but my mom and I make the best Pumpkin Jam ever. So good. 
  • Stanley Park Walk
Stanley park is so beautiful this time of year and all you need is someone special and something to keep you warm and you are guaranteed a good day. 

Well this is the list so far, I felt like I need to write this down and it feels good to have something like this so I can look back at it sometime in the future.

 I have an actual baking list too but it is huge. 

Lovely Things - Cozy Sweaters

Another Lovely Things List. This week Sweaters, lots of cozy sweaters. With the crisp autumn air approaching I am craving cozy knit cardigans and sweaters. Last year I was on a bit of a cozy turtleneck phase, but this year I want to add 50s cardigans and cute pullovers to my wardrobe. I find that I tend to have a way easier time spending my budget on dresses than on basics. So today I am on the hunt for cardigans and such, but if I come home empty handed Im sure some of these will make their way to my closet. 

Just the Fox, Ma'am Sweater

In It to Penguin It Sweater

I have a novelty animal print love. I adore this bird sweater. <3

I think I might want to add a cape as well. This one is gorgeous and perfect for the transitional weather we are having. 

Thats all for now. Have a fabulous weekend. :) 

Everyday vintage and fuzzy photos

Good morning little interweb world...

I got a new camera last week for school, Im going into a photography based class this term and learned my lesson the hard way last year.DO NOT EVER go into a photography class without a DSLR...the instructor made us cry with confusion. He also made us cry because he scared the bejeezus out of us. Oh well Im having loads of fun re-learning.
Even though this photo came out blurry, I still think its kind of cool.



This is my most worn dress in my wardrobe. When Im feeling lazy or sick-ish this is what I wear. Super simple, super comfy.


Sleepy head.


Have a fantastic day. TTFN :)

My favourite little town...well so far.

Lynden Washington may be my most favourite town. It is a small quirky little town nestled in Northwest Washington and I would move there in a heartbeat if a good opportunity came a knocking. (I still love you Canada but this town is sooo me)
My parents like to RV over the summer and this year I had the opportunity to join them and we explore A LOT. We love visiting small towns for there uniqueness and treasure hunting. Lynden is one of those town that make you feel safe and cozy. 


A sample of the cute shops, its a little Dutch restaurant and I kid you not the entire street is this cute. Mind you the street is aprox. 2.5 blocks. 


Lots of Windmills. This one is a hotel but they also had one a little further and it was a coffee shop. This town makes my heart flutter.


I would be a regular here for sure


They had a classic car show going on and I took too many photos and made a dream list. I want to participate in these shows one day. I want to be the young lady with a sweet ride in amid a group of older gentlemen. (Some are gentlemen like and some are just plain rude)


Oh what a Beauty


You've been warned


Definitely an everyday car

FF-42-10 Studebaker Daytona 1965

My DREAM CAR!! A 1965 Studebaker Daytona preferably in Blue but any colour shall do.
 Jaye Tyler in Wonderfalls has this car and I fell head over heels in love. 


oh and Im a Red Head now. Having a love/hate relationship...more love but still wish it was more copper, maybe in October I will try again.

Last days of Summer

My very first outfit post with one of my favourite dresses in my most favourite colour. Although I wasn't going to post outfits right away I was thinking as I was getting dressed "What is the fun in waiting, might as well just for it".
 Image quality kind of sucks. I think I am going to have a hard time learning how to upload properly and get the proportions right, but I am excited to learn. Hoping for that aha moment. 

Bella and me

This is dress is so "airy" all I want to do is twirl and twirl and twirl. Im trying to enjoy as much as I can before the weather gets cold and wet. Although I would probably wear this in winter with a sweater on a Pick me up kind of day. 


Oh and I should introduce my little fluff ball Bella. Did not realize that she is that tiny, she probably thinks I am a giant, but we love each other anyways.

Lovely Things

So this is my very first post. Yay! I have been saying it for years that I wanted to start a blog but didn't know where to start or if I could do it. I admire so many different bloggers and I truly do believe that a blogger community is wonderful. I know it is cliche or what not but I think its great. If it wasn't for all the wonderful bloggers out there I wouldn't dress the way I do and wouldn't have the somewhat confidence I have. 

Any-hoo Here is a List of lovely things. 

This dress is amazing and I think it is the perfect item to put on my first lovely things list.
I have watched Pushing Daisies countless times, I put it on whenever I am feeling down and instantly I feel better. Like it says in my little about blurb I am totally and utterly devoted to the ingenuity of Bryan Fuller. 

The colours in this dress remind me of Fall. Love it. I really like having dresses with no sleeves I think it makes it much easier to layer all year round. 

I have seen this image floating around on the inter-webs and have seen it numerous times on pinterest but didn't know where it came from. I stumbled upon it the other day and squealed when I realized it is a dress you can purchase from a online store! Tara Starlet has so many amazing retro style dresses and I have a huge wish list from them. I can't wait until I add this to my wardrobe. 

So there we have it my very first post.
