Weekend Photo Diary

1. bag - Zara, sweater - H & M, turband - asos, jewelry - Aldo do you see that it's snowing in this pic? On the first day of Spring, what's up with that???
2. artificial (yet beautiful) orchids at home
3. Prints Whiskerson Sultenfuss fast asleep
4. a few pieces of my jewelry
5. quinoa salad, recipe here
6. strawberry spinach salad
7. my sweet nephew Kayden

Did you have a good weekend? Mine was filled with family, friends, delicious food, a bit of shopping, (see my new handbag in the first pic that will double as a camera bag during Western Canada Fashion Week coming up? Thanks Zara!) and Mathew McConaughey and Ryan Philippe in the thriller "The Lincoln Lawyer" which I really enjoyed. But honestly how can you not enjoy any movie with Mathew and/or Ryan in it??? That would be like not enjoying ice cream or shoes. And I love ice cream and have way too many shoes!

Oh and today is my one year blog anniversary! To celebrate I have an exciting giveaway coming up as soon as my package from Revolve Clothing arrives. It was supposed to arrive last week but didn't. (Story of my life with online shopping!) So stay tuned!

Have a great week!
