A Little Bit Of Everything

 The other day I went to the Blink 182 concert with my friends which was an outdoor concert and so beyond fun :) It was also #6 on my Summer List . Along with Blink 182 I also saw Maroon 5 & Train at an outdoor concert also !

 Dress : Victoria's Secret
Shoes : Chinese Laundry
Purse : Value Village
Sunglasses : Ray Bans
Rings : Value Village

My Sunday Evening consisted of Cheese Cake and making myself a roasted red pepper dip!
You can find a recipe here 

So if you have seen my previous posts about how much I love Value Village I always show you things I have bought for myself. Recently I have found some things for my other family members, like this beautiful purse for my mom. The brand is Tignanello and they go for around $160, however I bought this one for about $10. Literally looks brand new, real leather and has such a classy look to it. I also came across these eye glasses for my sister who were looking for some and loved the ones I bought for her which were $1.99. They are real vintage 60's glasses that no one else will have. Instead of her paying around $250 - $300 she only had to pay $100 just to put her prescribed lens in.

For ever now my go to perfume has been Miss Dior Cherie. It is my favourite and my boyfriend is in love with it whenever I wear it. I am almost done the bottle so I thought I would try out some other perfumes just to mix it up once and a while. I am a big floral, sweet, light perfume girl so I thought Daisy by Marc Jacobs would be great for me. Just the bottle in it's self is beautiful but the smell is everything I like. Its a lighter floral smell then my Dior but I would love it as my daytime perfume. Along with that I also picked up the Chloe Perfume. It is definitely stronger then the other two but still floral with a more spice smell too it. It would be great for going out and is quite strong. I love perfume and perfume bottles, I think they are gorgeous and so much fun :)

Sunday Cooking

As soon as I woke up this morning I knew I wanted to cook and bake and have a lazy Sunday :)
I decided to make breakfast for my boyfriend and I this morning and cooked my eggs in with my bread. Its a thing that my dad has been doing for some time now, I believe he saw it off a movie and thought it would be fun to try.

 To make these eggs it is quite simple. Literally cut a hole in your bread place it in the pan and crack your egg in the middle of the bread for it to cook. The key is to keep it on a low temp so the egg can cook but not burn the bread and keep a lid over the pan so the egg can cook fully. I think its a lot of fun and makes your breakfast look a little different.
 It was a lovely morning on my balcony and I cut some fresh flowers from my garden to decorate the table :)

Once we finished breakfast we headed out to Value Village and of course I bought more things which I will make a post about :) When I got back home a thunderstorm began and I thought it would be the perfect time to bake these Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins I`ve been eyeing down to bake. I got the idea from one of my favourite blogs Cupcakes and Cashmere ! What I love about her blog is there is so much to see..the fashion side...the baking side..home decor and her outfits all in one blog! The link to get the recipe for the muffins are here > Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins 

 Lots of Rainnnnn

 They were so good..added some butter and a pinch of cinnamon to the them and made them that much better :) Happy Sunday Everyone

Recent Purchases

I guess you wouldn't say this is a recent purchase considering I didn't purchase this but my boyfriend just recently bought me this. A Pandora red leather bracelet with a heart charm! I adore it and wear it everyday, and looks great even when you want to pair it with other bracelets :)

 Of course I bought my monthly magazines like I always do as I am obsessed with magazines! Lou Lou and Women`s Mag have become my favourite for sure and Flare is close behind :) I also picked up a light pair of snake skinned flats at Value Village.(You can see my post on all my Value Village finds here Value Village Finds ) Along with a perfect summer Essie Nail Polish E-nuf is E-nuf , which I have been wearing a lot !
 The light snake skinned flats I bought a few days ago but last week I also bought a darker snake skinned flat (also from Value Village) and I love them both. It wasn't until I opened my new Flare magazine the other day after buying these flats and realized for the fall that snake skin is very much in style. Lucky Me
 .A page out of the flare magazine full of snake skinned pieces for the fall / winter
 Lastly I bought The Help by Kathryn Stockett. I haven't read a good book in so long so when I headed to Chapters to buy one I came across The Help which was advertised everywhere. Along with it just becoming a movie (which I heard is phenomenal) I also heard what an amazing read it is. I am half way through the book and obsessed...once I finish I can't wait to see the movie :)
