It's bad to say... but I haven't cooked at home for over 3 weeks since I came back from Canada.
Now that I've joined the gym (it's actually called The Gym), I'm going to eat clean!
Above picture is a warm salad I made with lots of veggies and cabbage (covered by one slice of bread ripped up), brie cheese, olive oil, cherry tomatoes and sliced strawberries. Surprisingly good!
I am a little obsessed with oven baked chicken, I got 4 big chicken thighs for 1.99 pounds and I season it with soy sauce, paprika, chilli powder and all seasoning (salt, pepper and herbs) overnight and thow it in the oven for 30 minutes at 180. I am the pickiest meat eater because I hate the taste of tough meat... but omg this is so delicious and simple!
Delicious Salmon at Cafe Instanbul! (finally tried Turkish food in Manchester)
Hope y'all had a good Canada Day!! I celebrated with my uni friends and felt patriotic so we sang the national anthem at a club haha. Wearing Cheap Monday Sweater and white lace dress from an online retailer that I cannot recall at the moment..
also insanely sad because canada day was also farewell party to my friends at uni. All good this come to an end, so happy I've met these incredible girls and the amazing 9 months we had together!
I think summer sale started everywhere, did you find any goodies?
I spotted these delicious shoes from Dolce and Gabanna for over half off! Also got a nice yellow dress and cross body bag for 50% off at DKNY and a dress and tank from All Saints over half off. Now that I've maxed out my credit card, I'm going to go the gym to past time... haha!

Music festivals are so magical. You can wear anything you want and no one will judge you.
wings. ears. tutus. costumes. you name it. And everyone looks so beautiful and unique!
I'm going to EDC in the UK (so pumped!! Thanks to snapchat team for bringing on EDClive) and I didn't have an outfit...
so I decided to make myself one of these flared bandeaus that seem to be everywhere, in my favourite cotton print:)

Eden is actually the first music festival I have ever been too!
The first day was overwhelming and we all looked a little out of place in the crowd of parents with dreadlocks and their babies, but by night we saw all the other kids (if you can still call me that) come out and AMAZING DJs in the smaller tents.
It was definitely an experience, especially camping in Scotland in Yippie Yurts!!
Yes. there were bath tubs to chill in.
Yes, we did arts and craft followed by a nice, chill nap in an hammock to amazing musicians.
It was also really nice that there were absolutely no cell phone reception or wifi. It was a break from technology and civilisation except for the people around you.
Food was yummy (though I brought a ton of snacks with me including a loaf of bread and a wheel of cheese haha), people were friendly, porta-potties were absolutely horrific and the nights were like a dream.
Wish I was back!

My first day off since I arrived back Manchester!
Those who know me, knows I'm insane and push the limit of my mental and physical capabilities... I got off the 7 hour plane ride Friday morning and went right into a 7 and a half shift and then went out with my girls to boutique as it's our last night all in manchester and straight back to work in the morning!
Sadly the "Library" was closed, look how amazing it is!

Shopping first time at the Conestoga Mall of Waterloo!
Got these incredibly comfortable Mocassins from Stepps and anklets from Aldo. I miss shopping back in Canada! Oh and the food... but I realize things aren't THAT much cheaper than Britain, with tips and tax I think the prices are just a bit more in Manchester (but food is way better over here obviously). I keep thinking it was sooooo much less over here but either inflation went up a lot since September or I was just oblivious. A lot has changed over here too, from Commerce Gate completely turning over all their old shops to different menus at the local diners. One thing is the same... traffic. Ridiculous how much traffic there is... or maybe it's even worse! Can't wait till I get to live downtown Toronto.
p.s. I got the Samsung5!! Will be uploading a lot of photos taken from that phone in the near future!

As promised, these are some better pictures of the gown I designed and sewed up!
-for the occasion of my graduation ball at Hilton hotel! Such a nice way to celebrate the end of my bachelor degree:)

as you see in the last post, I designed this floor length cream dress for my graduation ball!
Took me about two days to make, I am quite please by the way it turned out!! Will update with better pictures!
Also got these lovely K G Kurt Geiger heels to match, can't wait for Saturday!!
CHILL FACTORE! After talking about coming here for months we finally made it! It was so much fun despite it was a small hill indoors, it was definitely refreshing to be able to snowboard once this year! Then we had some Nandos and went rock climbing. what an adventurous day ;)
