Tea-rrific Day

So last weekend, my cousin had a tea party with her friends to celebrate her birthday! She shared photos of the occasion on her Instagram and I was immediately intrigued about this high tea place that she visited.

I messaged my friend, Alpha, and asked her if she was down to check out this place the following weekend. She told me that she actually went by this tea room the day before and saw a huge group of girls taking photos outside of the place. I showed her my cousin's photos and she told me that it was those girls that she saw!!!! Whatta small world!

We also asked Tina and Rosa to join us for afternoon tea yesterday!! It was actually our first time hanging altogether without our boyfriends. πŸ˜€

Time flew by so quick! We chatted about our career paths, discussed possible names for our kids, devoured finger sandwiches, sipped on tea and took a wholeeee lotta pics!! πŸ˜„

Speaking of sipping on tea, I drank SO MUCH tea yesterday. After I hung out with the girls, Daniel and I went for pho in the evening ...and I had tea there. Before he dropped me off home, we went to Chatime ...and I had (bubble) tea there. I guess you can say that I had a tea-rrific day!!!!! πŸ’›✨

New Clothing Brand

I went on a quadruple date last month thinking that we were just gonna play darts, but ended up doing a mini photoshoot for my friend's clothing line! πŸ˜„  I finally got a hold of these photos and realized that I don't know much about modelling... πŸ˜‚  There were so many outtakes of me laughing, talking and (unknowingly) covering up the logo!

But if you think I rocked these well and you wanna look as stylish as me, check out my friend's website for more designs! πŸ˜€

Mya's Moments

My adorable little niece turned two months old today!!! And I don't know how I feel about that. Like I'm kinda emotional, but kinda excited?? I see her at least twice a week, but she's growing up so fast that I feel like she's a new person every time! I've decided to start a new segment on my blog called,

This is where I share all the little tidbits that I've learned about her for the month! So without further ado, here we go!!! After Mya turned one month old, she

  • Gets scared of looking at her own reflection in the mirror. 
  • Always sneezes twice in a row.
  • Likes to nap to this R&B playlist.
  • Can't get enough of the songs, "Bingo" and "Wheels on the Bus."
  • Enjoys staring at bright things, like chandeliers, windows and spot lights.
  • Loves staring at the artwork in her living room. 
  • Enjoys cuddling with her dada.
  • Has a lot of fomo when her auntie comes over.
  • Likes to be held upright.
  • Doubled her birth weight!! She was born 4lbs 12oz!!
That's all friends, stay tuned for next month's update!!!!


Daniel and I celebrated our three year anniversary this year!!! ❤️  We certainly had our ups and downs, but I've learned that it's easier to forgive people when you separate their actions from their intentions. He made this year truly memorable and has been there for me through everything. I'm so fricken excited to make more memories with my best friend in 2018!!!

I went into my final year of university this year and I still haven't grasp the idea that I'm graduating this coming year!!! I can't wait to show you guys my final project in April!

I landed two internships this year!! I worked as a photography intern for TTC and currently work as a web and marketing assistant for York University! The little old me, who couldn't find a job two summers ago, would've never thought that she could add these work experiences to her resume. ☺️ I'm excited to see what job opportunities there are for me in the new year!

This year, I took my workout regime more seriously and fell back in love with jogging! Finding the motivation to work out can be hard, but I've learned that you never regret doing it once you're done! I am determined to be in the best shape of my life this year. πŸ’ͺ🏻

This year, I've learned that you make way more friends when you stop trying to be interesting and started being genuinely interested in people! I had the chance to meet (and got closer to) so many new people this year! I also feel so lucky that I still have a core group of girlfriends to turn to and that the Fab 4 convo is still going strong 5 years later. ❤️

This year, we got a new addition to the family! Baby Mya! I didn't think it was possible to love someone so much!!!!! I'm so excited to watch her grow up! 🌸

I had the chance to visit Vancouver and Punta Cana this year!!! These trips made me realize that I should travel more while I'm young. I really hope that I'm able to save up and treat myself to a nice graduation trip in 2018! I also want to start getting out of my comfort zone this year and try out new things, like vlogging and swimming!!! πŸ˜„

My blog turned 8 years old this year!!! ✨ For those that have been following along on my adventures this year (and the previous years), I want to say thank you!!!! I'm so grateful for each and every one of you because I know I'm not the best blogger out there. I do not post consistently, I'm not good at taking photos of everything that happens in my life, I don't post frequently on social media and I don't blog about relevant topics. With that said, I'm always shocked when someone tells me that they read this little ol' thing!

I always hope that you guys leave my blog feeling uplifted or inspired in some way. Can't wait to see what 2018 brings and to continue sharing more with you guys!!! πŸ’›✨😜
