A Weekend Of Wedding Snap Shots

My Friends! Happy Monday, first full week back at school for all of us students. Hopefully you are fresh and motivated to make it a great week!

I started off this weekend with a trip back home to celebrate the joining of my cousin Frisco and his beautiful bride, Cassandra on Saturday at their wedding

img_9476

Sorry blurry picture of their first dance.

I’m not going to be too wordy with this post and just let the memories and beauty of it all be shown through the pictures that I managed to snap. My parents and I chauffeured my Nana and Papa to this grand Italian event (she is Italian, so a big wedding filled with food and love!) and it was such a fun time. I’m so happy to see my cousin so happy and to see the way they look at each other when they are together just speaks of their excitement to continue to live each and every day moving forward together.

I wish them all of the love, support, laughter and joy for their continued lives together as husband and wife.

Now let the photo reel begin

My new best friend, otherwise known as my second-cousin-once-removed (I hate these drawn out titles) or my cousin Chantal’s daughter, Lucy. She helped me touch up my lipstick and added some gloss.

Thanks for making me nice and pretty Lucy.

Waiting for the wedding to start…

And down comes the beauty!

After a lovely ceremony at the church (I did reading from the book of genesis for it), we then headed off to the reception…

Gotta get a famjam shot.

The venue!

I loved the blue, white and silver theme. So many candles and blue roses. It was so pretty.

img_9477

They had a Photo Booth stand. I love those things!

After a full multi-course meal, the dances were done, the speeches were spoken and the party began.

img_9485

Smiles with the bride.

And with my cousin Cassie.

img_9486

Love her and wish we could spend more time together! Soon, soon we will make it happen.

One special cousin that I didn’t get to snap with because he was busy being best man and all, was the grooms younger brother, Devon. We literally haven’t seen each other since my Nana and Papa brought all three of them up to my place one summer when I was really young to spend most of those days together. I remember the close friendship and bond I had with him but with a few things going on in life, we haven’t seen each other since. I loved being able to see him this weekend happy with where he is at and I had this huge urge to run up and full on catch up with life.

Unfortunately we had to leave a bit earlier as we had precious cargo to escort back home (I.e my Nana and Papa), but he promised to come back (he’s in out of the province :-() sooner this time and I will hold you to that Devon if you eventually read this on your work break!

And remember your promise associated with a shout out! Ahaha

So overall my weekend was a fun one. I love opportunities to see people happy and coming together, plus dressing up once and a while is fun too.

Gotta get this girl out of gym clothes and Pj’s once a while amirite?

Fad Lifestyles, Gym Newbs…Thinking Out Loud

Thinking-Out-Loud-2

My friends I have a lot to think out loud this week, so lets get started right off the bat shall we?

Thanks to the lovely Amanda from Running with Spoons for being the hostess to the mostess.

1. Maggie on my Mind

Here I was saying I’m an adult and everything and was going to be just fine when Rita left, but day 2 it hit me hard. You know that ‘down’ feeling, yeah that was me. I try my hardest to still smile (okay I don’t have to try that hard to smile, its just me) because smiling just makes you feel better, but I would be lying if I said that I didn’t have a bit of a dark cloud floating over me the past few days. It is perfect timing for me to go home this weekend and spend time with my familia and I have to say I just want snuggles…

IMG_8837.jpg

Of the puppy variety.

Is it bad that I have been ‘craving’ having a dog a lot recently…Ugh. Come to me money! Or better yet, can I just have one and it not cost me anything and never get sick… ever?

You know you’re desperate when you start wanting a cat just because you want a snuggle friend and they are less baby-like in their needs…

2.The gym is not a playground FYI

Not to sound like a preacher, but for real, take the gym seriously and don’t be an idiot when you come into the gym. I’m going to sound sexist here, but this specifically applies to guys because most often girls will run away to the cardio section when they are not sure (which is not the answer either!) rather then just being plain stupid.

Okay so that was a bit harsh, but I really don’t feel like seeing someone die when I’m in my domain.

Screen Shot 2016-07-20 at 8.34.39 AM.png

Pardon my lack of spell checkin…slips happen when you are speaking with irritation passion

This most often happens when said individuals are not only newbs but also when they decide to bring their newb friend(s) with them too. Multiples just increase the stupidity that occurs.

Screen Shot 2016-07-20 at 8.36.21 AM.png

And they just laugh…after they barely rack the bar and the guy crawls out from underneath it.

Just sits there and shakes my head. 

Screen Shot 2016-07-20 at 8.36.22 AM.png

And when you don’t succeed, try again with more weight? Cuz that makes perfect sense

And fail again. Like actual fail and once again, spotter barely racks it with 50 extra pounds. Unfortunately in cases like this, it generally takes an injury for them to smarten up a bit.

Let me say something before someones like “you talk **it but why didn’t you step in”. One, I wish I could lift 150+lbs just so maybe I could show them up (plus ya ya save their life and everything). And two the spotter did manage to get it on the bottom rung (i.e. two inches from the guys face…).

Please note how there were numerous GUYS around these two and they did nothing…

Speaking of which…

3. Girls vs. Guys

We apparently think very differently. I went over to talk to a gym friend of mine about said newbs and his response to my “They’re freaking me out because I would rather not see someone die this morning…”

You apparently have a bigger heart then me, I would laugh if it fell on their face.

Now before you judge my friend, please note that most guys would have said the same thing. Call it tough love. They are being idiots, so the guys logic is that maybe if they actually loose it, maybe they will learn their lesson…plus get a bit of entertainment.

gym-help

Lets be realistic here, guys often get a kick out of seeing other guys pain. 

4.Eating Like a Caveman…

Check out this podcast as this inspired this lil rant thought.

 To the paleo folks, did you know that you have been depriving yourselves?

Of oat gains!

That’s serious.

New research has pointed out the fact that Palaeolithic people did in fact eat grains. BLASPHEMY! In fact, a new paper was published (and discussed in the podcast) on a new tool that was discovered that has traces of a type of oat fiber suggesting that it was used to grind the grains into a flour.

So yeah….Sorry?

They also touched on some other forms of ‘dieting’ that I wanted to mention.

Intermittent Fasting

This is no miracle solution to loosing weight, but rather just a different way to space out your calories for the day. Mr. Dolce happened to mention that he had tried and and felt like absolute crap for the 3 months he was on it.

No PR’s

No Strength

No Energy

Why make life hard on yourself?

Eat something before you train and fuel your body to make gains. Simple as that.

Exception may be for runners who get sick with running on full. Perhaps eating something very quick to digest is best, but go with your gut. Pun intended. 

IIFYM (If It Fits Your Macros)

I discussed a while back about this and what it was actually supposed to address when it was first released but they give great basic information as to why eating whole foods, rather then processed crap, is really how to keep your body weight in check. No, I’m not saying you need to eat clean 100% of the time to maintain your weight, I’m saying that eating wholesome makes a huge difference in satiety and often leaves you eating the calories your body needs. IE. Not in excess.

He said something very real..

Have you ever seen someone sit down and eat 3 apples? Not really. 4 donuts, yes.

The truth is that the satiety of the fiber and water from the apple often leaves you not wanting more due to feeling full and satisfied. The sugary, easy to digest foods leave you feeling unsatisfied and wanting more. Unfortunately, the latter is much higher in calories and can easily put you over your maintenance and lead to weight gain if consistently indulged in.

In other ranting news…

5.Why Do People Still Hate On Carbs.

Ugh I know that education on this topic is not there yet but it kind of infuriates me to hear people saying that I’m cutting carbs to loose weight or body fat.

Guys, no macronutrient (carbs/pro/fat) are the “fat storing macros.” If you go over your calories you will gain weight. You could eat over your cals in lettuce and you would gain weight. Don’t try that though because that may be painful…

Carbs bring with them a lot of water (about equal water per gram of carbs) so often people may reduce them to feel ‘slimmer’ just due to water loss but that is it. It’s not fat you are loosing. ITS WATER!

Okay rant over. Let me unruffle my feathers…

Disclaimer. I’m talking about carbs in general. Some people will avoid all carbs, including natural sources (oats, sweet potatoes, rice, etc) thinking that weight loss will follow. I’m not talking about cereal, sugar, etc

6. Bunny Therapy?

I just discovered that the pet store near my house lets you hold newborn bunnies just because. They just messed up because imma be there ERRYDAY!

cuddle  bunny

OMG I just can’t get over my joy.

…or over that baby bunny. Uh Oh…

7.The Best Compliment.

“You look like you’re an athlete.”

Screen Shot 2016-07-21 at 10.02.03 AM

This is when strength and athleticism has surpassed aesthetics for the reasons why you work out, you know there is passion there. Find what you love because that is when it will stick and that is when you will progress.

I workout for me because I love it and I love getting stronger. I don’t work out because I feel that is required to have a certain body type.

…..

Well I’m off to lift real soon, so I’m gunna close it off there. I will be heading out for a nice lil hike post lift with a friend of mine to catch up which will be real nice…and maybe I will drag her back to the bunny shop…

I have a problem okay. At least I admit it.

Happy Thursday Friends!

When Mama Has No Birdies Left…

T-Minus 12ish hours there will be one less Monkateer left in my house.

No more lil birdies for me to watch.

To train.

To laugh with.

…And I may or may not have some puffy eyes to hide tomorrow…

The last bestie standing is going back home for the rest of the summer and, yes I just made that overly dramatic but I’m really gunna miss my Rita.

IMG_8882

Selfishly I want her to stay, but I also want her to go back home to see her parents. She hasn’t been back to China in a year and so I’m so happy that she has the chance to visit with her family for a lil while before school starts up again.

I feel as if this summer has really been a blessing though. I decided to stay mostly for her because my job really doesn’t force me to stay in Guelph at all and I don’t regret that decision what-so-ever. As close as we were already, I feel as though this summer has really allowed for us to bond in a new way.

You could really say we were attached at the hip most days and so it’s going to be very strange to be on my own for this last month.

IMG_8876

We said we were gunna explore Guelph more this summer and thanks to the beautiful weather, we have!

She showed me the arboretum for the first time and I got to be her photo subject.

We went back and forth via bus to whole foods and lululemon as I now have her addicted to all things expensive apparently.

We gymed together.

We had nightly walks that consisted of those deep feeling talks…ya know, girl things.

We finally went canoeing!

canoeing

I got to train her and I got this STRONG lady doing both squats and deadlifts PLUS facing her fear of bench pressing.

I’m also just proud of her in general. This year was a big changing year for her throughout the school year in her own personal growth and confidence. She pushed so hard and got amazing grades this year, which is made even more impressive because obviously we work in english here and she’s only been in Canada for 3-4 years now. She had her first interview and got a great volunteer position in her field. This process was huge because she is always nervous about writing and speaking due to the english component but she’s doing more amazing then she will ever see in herself.

But I see it…

Although I’m only 3 years older then her, I feel this need to guide her like a ‘mama’ would (guess that’s why both my housemates nicknamed me as such) so she reaches for new opportunities that she may feel she can’t do. I may go overboard once and a while and maybe push too hard (and I’m sure she wants to run away at that point), but I do it because I care.

…..

This post really is sounding like I’m sending my child off to school or something, but I’m just letting my thoughts roll. She’s one of my best friends and I love seeing her gain more and more confidence in herself because she deserves to feel as awesome as she truly is.

IMG_8847

When trapped on a 1-hour bus ride, you take creepy pictures to keep yourself amused. Rita is smarter and brings something to read…

Now as I see the time ticking away, I think it will finally hit me soon enough that she will be gone as of 6am tomorrow morning and then I may just ball my eyes out whimper a lil bit.

I hope you’re so excited to be home and get to do everything and see everyone you haven’t done and seen for the past year.

Mama loves ya

25 Years In The Making…

Happy Long Weekend my friends!

First off, a big Happy Birthday shoutout to one of my besties and my beautiful housemate, Ritaaaaaa! I hope you enjoyed your day as low key as it was. We are two in the same where birthdays don’t really phase us, BUT I hope my singing over a pile of pancakes with a candle helped to start your special day on an interesting note.

DSC00657

Can we accept that I win for creativity with that card eh? Oh and we do birthday pancakes in this house! Chef Chelsea to the birthday rescue.

Click on the picture to take you to my Facebook page if you want to see us singing together.. 😀

It was quite magical… cough. 

Well speaking of birthday’s it is mine today and I am always thankful for all of the love that I receive on this day. I don’t need anything but to hear all of the people in my life take a moment of their time to send me a message just makes me smile. I always feel that a “like” isn’t enough. If they thought about me in that moment, I like to write them back a message because they deserve that for the warmth and positive energy they just passed to me.

So much love is given around and my heart always feels so full.

Starting with calling my Nana and Papa first thing because they always want to talk to me on my birthday if they cannot see me in person. So I called them up (as they don’t know my celly) and was happy to hear their cheerful voices in the wee hours in the morning.

The Facebook messages started a’rollin early as well including two beautifully written posts by my parents. Both of them included the topic of pride and I cannot help but feel some kinda way when they say they are proud of who I have become because that’s all I can hope for.

I want to make them both proud! You have raised me to be who I am and I can only hope that you know how much I care and appreciate all that you have done.

….

As I was preparing to head out for an early lifting sesh (obviously going to lift on my birthday!)

Screen Shot 2016-07-03 at 9.27.39 AM

Rita came out of her room nice and early to sing to me and hand me this…

img_9179

She is the sweetest! And inside da bag…

img_9180Oh no she didn’t!

I love them and obviously had to put them on immediately.

img_9186

Sorry for the filter I was trying to ensure you could see the sparklies!

Going to be flying in the gym! And sparkles, oh she knows me too well.

After a very colourful chestday…

Yes I will wear as much obnoxious colour as I want especially cuz it’s my birfday and I do what I wanna 😉

The gym staff even started singing happy birthday to me across the room. Yes my gym apparently loves me too, guess it’s all the treats I bring them hehe.

Made my morning!

….

My housemates picked me up (remember Emily drove down from Montreal?) and we jetted out to find a nice cozy spot on the patio at Buon Gusto, a cute Italian place downtown Guelph. Rita has wanted to try this place and I just wanted a patio setting so the two birthday girls got exactly what they wanted.

img_9196

We missed Em so much and were happy to be able to steal her away from her BF (Alex) for a few hours to celebrate our lil reunion.

We had to say goodbyes and it was super sad and felt almost like something was missing. We didn’t get enough time and felt like we left not getting everything that we wanted to.

Her and Alex drove away and Rita and I decided to go for a walk…a walk that turned into an hour and a half and by the time we got home, we were beyond tired. The sun is beautiful but man does it drain the life out of you.

My shoulders are nice and brown though!

img_9203

….

To our surprise, two minutes later, I kid you not, Em knocks at the door and said she just couldn’t fully leave without stopping by. So we chattered just the three of us girls and then she was on her merry way back to Montreal. We needed that. It wouldn’t have felt right if the first goodbye was the only goodbye.

Us girls need girl talk ya know?

….

We then went about making dinner and then I started making noodleless lasagna for Rita as I had extra chicken sausages to use up from yesterday.

Yes I’m still cooking all the things on my birthday…

And now as I sit here and think about how I feel at the end of my birthday, I can’t say I feel much different. Age really doesn’t mean much to me but what I will say is that I have come a long way in my first 25 years of life. I can also say that I’m proud of many of the things that I have done for myself, with some of the biggest changes being within the past few years.

I say it a lot, but my confidence that I exude now amazes me sometimes. I am the girl who used to stand in front of the class and pretty much want to cry during a presentation because I was so nervous. I was so insecure that I would be constantly thinking that others were judging me for the worst. I looked to please everyone around me even if that meant that my kindness was taken advantage of.

I didn’t love myself. That was simply self destruction.

Today I stand tall (ha right, not physically..) because I feel like a completely different person.

I couldn’t give a **it what others think about me 99% of the time. If I’m doing what is right for me, why should I feel like I’m doing something wrong?

I do things for me and don’t see them as selfish anymore. This is important! You have to come to realize that you are a person that needs attention to. It’s not bad to take care of yourself. 

I have a lot to give but I will never be taken advantage of. I refuse to be walked all over. That doesn’t mean I’m a mean person as I have quite of love that I want to give. Instead it means that I respect myself. 

I have goals I’m striving for. I’m determined and I will hit them.

I have a great social circle that makes me smile every day. No longer to I spend all my time on my work and believe that this feeling of slight loneliness is okay. I give off so much energy when I’m with others. 

If there is something I want, I go get it.

One thing, though, that I have always known is that I believe that I was meant to help others. I was meant to give. I know that may sound corny or others say that all the time, but I truly believe that is my calling.

I will leave it at that.

So there was my weekend in snapshots and it was full of love. Birthday’s are never about the things, its about the who’s and every person who takes a second out of their day to send positivity and love your way.

Thank you for all of that love. It is appreciated much more then you can know.

Early Birthday Celebrations

Hey my Blog family!

Happy Sunday to all. Many apologies to those who read the Fitness Friday posts as I did not manage to gett’er done this week to post on time. I tried, I really did but I went home to visit the family this weekend and with the travels on Friday and chilling with my parents, the time got away from me. Stay tuned for this weeks topic to be posted next Friday on the wonderful Canada Day!

So, how was you weekend?

Mine has been quite nice. As I mentioned, I went home to celebrate my birthday (1 week in advance) with my family as my actual birthday (July 3) will be celebrated with my housemates. Lets share my day in pictures shall we?

Yesterday involved a lot of …

Pampering…

img_9165

Sorry if you hate feet..

Post gym Pedi’s with my Mama…

IMG_9098

And I even got my hair blown out just cuz I felt like an extra dose of pampering. And I really didn’t want to put forth an hour of my life on that day to wash my hair…

At 4pm, the grandparents began to arrive…

IMG_9111

Grandma and Grandpa enjoyed playing with the monster who went between jumping to get everyones attention to squirrel and chipmunk stalking.

I didn’t know until yesterday that chipmunks screamed…

We have to always keep an eye on our furry monster as she likes to try to attack anything that moves…and apparently there is a raccoon that has taken a liking to our backyard lately so that warrants a lil bit more eyes on da pooch.

IMG_9163

One of the best pictures I have with my Nana and Papa recently I think. That lighting with the beautiful weather just made for the best paparazzi moments.

FYI, my Nana and Papa have been married for more then 55 years and I still managed to catch them in a moment of just staring each other in the eyes with a look of lust. OMG I melted.

#RelationshipGoals.

I also was super active on zee snapchat (lilmisscross91) and managed to capture a cute moment between them two. 😉 Yeah I’m a creeper now…

IMG_9131

As you can see, selfie game was on point. I’m starting to not be as camera shy anymore. TBH I was afraid of the camera for a bit because I was self conscious of people seeing me so thin, but you know what, I’m working at it, them dimples are starting to remerge and take over my face again and I don’t care what others think anymore.

I’m gunna be snap happy if I wanna.

And it’s my birthday, so I do what I want 😉

I’m not a brat I promise….just a revelation moment.

Lots of Puppy Lovin…

IMG_9125

Maggie was pooped after all of her running around in the 30 degree heat but that didn’t stop me from kidnapping her for more pictures. Look at the face, can you blame me?

Today also included a lot of BBQ foods….

IMG_9147

We had quite the meat spread going (burgers, dogs, and sausage) and a potluck of sorts for the side dishes. We did a simple bowtie pasta salad, Grandma and Grandpa brought a garden salad and Nana and Papa brought their famous potato salad that makes my Dad all kinds of happy. Mama cooks things best and if he had to eat that for the rest of his life, he would never complain.

IMG_9148I made two awesome skewers of shrimp and veggies covered in basil to throw onto that garden salad with some extra prepped sweet tater chunks. Went down easy and reminded me how good simply grilled shrimp is.

Happy Birthday To Me…

IMG_9162

For candle blowing out purposes, my parents snagged a DQ ice cream cake for the fam to enjoy. They quite liked it. That thing would kill me so I opted out and just enjoyed the company and the rest of the evening with them.

It was a day full of love and relaxation and a lil bit of beauty-ing and I ain’t mad about that!

Hope you have a great rest of your weekend my friends!

A Letter To My Dad

My Dad

My Daddy…

You may not have carried me like Mom did.

You didn’t get to feel me grow.

You didn’t get to have that physical cord that connected me to you.

But I’m sure one of the things you first noticed was those big doll eyes staring back at you were much like yours.

daddy

“When kiddo comes to sleep by me, that’s how it looks and feels like.”

When I was born, Mom got to me first while you stood there in awe.

When you finally got your turn, you didn’t know how to hold me because you thought you would break my tiny body

It’s okay though Dad, I wasn’t scared.

I’m sure I could sense your worry.

I’m sure I could feel your fears.

But much more, I know that I could feel the love that was radiating off of you as you looked at me.

Unknown

I put you through a lot growing up.

I had to get stitches and you tried your hardest to be strong for me but that popsicle the nurse gave you was much needed at the end of my screaming.

I passed out in front of your eyes leaving you with nightmares for months to follow.

You watched me waste away feeling unable to save me like I know you wish you could.

You had to be strong for me when I was weak and angry.

That was hard.

heartwarming-Pictures-Love-Between-Dad-and-Little-daughter-6-800x800

“Sleep, my little one. I am here.” Dada will take care of the monsters.

But you also helped me to reach my goals.

You taught me to ride a bike and to skate despite wanting to wrap me in bubble wrap when I wanted to be set free.

You let me learn some hard lessons no matter how hard it was for you to let me do it myself.

I saw your pride when I graduated and with every Dean’s Honour List certificate I brought home despite us loosing space on our wall.

You gave me something to look forward to when I hit rock bottom.

And then when I conquered that battle, you kept your promise and taught me the basics of something that changed my life.

You helped shape me into the person I am today.

For that I can never say thank you enough, but I can try my hardest to be the best daughter that I can be and hopefully blossom into someone you can be proud of.

father-daughter-love-illustrations-13

“Walking high above the world.”

So on this day Dad and every day, I always want you to know how loved you truly are. How much I appreciate everything that you do.

You may not have had the option to be physically connected to me like Mom was, but I never saw you any differently.

I will always look up to you. Always.

Never forget that you will always have a Daddy’s Lil girl.

Your Bun loves you more then you could ever know.

…and to all the boys…

They have a tough teddy bear to stand next to before they can grab my heart.

Happy Father’s Day Dad. 

XOXO

-Chess

I have to give credit to the site that displayed the beautiful pictures in this post done by Snezhana Soosh. They depict the father-daughter relationship in such a beautiful and touching way. I legit was getting teary eyes browsing through them and reading your captions.

Things I Couldn’t Live Without If I Didn’t Have To.

Happy Monday Friends!

Fresh day, Fresh new week, what are your plans for the week? Goals?

Before I get into the main post I want to speak briefly on the tragedies that have happened over the past few days in the States. My love goes out to all of those affected by these horrific acts, all of these individuals were lost much too soon and did not deserve the slaughter that was forced upon them. I’m lost as to what to say as these events did not need to happen. Innocent people never need to be taken from us in this manner. Acts of hatred should never occur. Our world can be a very ugly place and we are left with our mouths open and tears in our eyes because we just don’t understand the why.

Not to overshadow these lost lives at all, but it is during these times that we do need to be reminded that there is still love that shines with us too despite it seeming like the darkness is clouding everything.

Love means doing whats right. When two random strangers choose to band together and take action to stop a horrendous act rather then pretending it wasn’t their problem.

Carl-Fredrik and Peter were the two who intervened and ended up holding Brock down until the Police arrived on scene.

Love is coming together and helping to support each other during mourning.

Last night in Toronto, a candlelit vigil paid tribute to those lost and effected in the Orlando massacre.

These tragedies are real. They happen everywhere and we are often unaware of some of the worst of them, but all we need to know is that as a whole species, we need to come together, support each other and simply love. There is no up-side to hate. There is no benefits of violence. I hope one day we can learn this.

……

So I saw this post on Robyn’s site and I thought it was a super fun idea. Yes, obviously there are things were couldn’t live without, but if you could only pick 5 things that you use all the time that you feel as if would kill you a lil bit (not literally) to not to have in your life, what would they be?

Well here are mine:

1. Sunglasses

If ya’ll don’t already know, I go no where NO WHERE without my sunnies attached to my body somewhere.

IMG_8862

Take a peek back at any picture of me outside, and what’s on my face? I literally cannot live without them and if for a second I can’t see them I have a small heart attack.

Therefore, I have no shame for the 4 pairs of not so cheap designer glasses because when they basically are part of your face, you go for quality.

Amirite?

2. Toaster Oven

Yes guys, I can’t live without an appliance but for real I use this thing for absolutely everything! Ain’t not point in turning on your oven for a solo dinner right? Roasting veggies, baking fish, making random baking experiments, you name it and I will bake it in the toaster oven. Bonus points, it cooks things faster because it’s smaller.

3. Sports Bra.

Not so exciting but ladies you know it. Many ladies like to go bra-less but I don’t actually like having zee girls just chilling unsupported under my daily uniform..ie my Pjs. I just bought 2 new beauties..

Calvin-Klein-Underwear-Topp-sort_vpjoo9

Picked me up this one and a pink one cuz girlie 😀

…And OMG now I now know why every fitness girl out there is preaching to the skies about this line! So comfy. So soft. Love.

Was annoyed though that Canada is super slow at everything and didn’t have the cool newer silver ones…Just saying.

4. My Mac
