Getting Ready for Fall

Aug 27, 2013

I can't believe that it's almost fall! That means it's time for changes- new clothes, new hair (rocking my new 'do), new teachers, new classes... you name it. Even though September is partially still considered summer, the weather no longer feels that way. I've started to get some cooler days where I live already. It's much more enjoyable because the air conditioning doesn't need to be blasted on high. I hate it when it gets extremely humid because I literally have to wear a sweater indoors and then tank top and shorts outdoors. I say the temperature around low to mid 20s feels the best.

Angel Hair for Kids

Aug 25, 2013

Hair donation is something I've been wanting to do for a few years now. I actually haven't heard about hair donations until my time in high school when a few of my classmates donated their hair and when my school hosted a few hair donating events. I was like, "wow, that is something I want to participate in!" So for the past year, I've been growing my hair to get it to the length it was.

Condensed Summer Bucket List

Aug 19, 2013

I'm finally free from school!!!!! Look at that smile across my face. You could say that it officially marks the start of my summer holiday though... sad, isn't it? Even worse, this freedom will last for just one week. And something EVEN worse is happening tomorrow but you'll just have to wait for my next post to find out what that might be. On another note, it's been over a week since I've done an outfit post- WOW. Time flies.


Recipe Box - Macarons

Aug 11, 2013

Over the past year or so, macarons seem to have become unbelievably popular in North America. At first, I was like, "what is a macarON? I've only heard of a macarOON." Yea, it bugs me when people pronounce this treat as macaroon. I never knew what it was made of so I did a little research. It is somewhat like a meringue-based treat mixed with almond flour, baked to look like delicate cookies.

I've heard a lot of say that macarons are extremely difficult to make so the hunt for a foolproof recipe was on. You can't go wrong with Martha Stewart! A baker made a video on how to make the macarons based on Martha's recipe which made it a lot easier to make. With the help of my church fellowship gals, the macarons turned out awesome! It was our first time making these and I believe they tasted and looked just like store bought ones. Maybe they were a little better than store-bought ones? Nah, now I'm just flattering ourselves.

Olive It

Aug 7, 2013

Do you understand the title of the post? Olive it... "I love it". Yes? No? I'm so punny. I tried to be creative so I hope it worked. Great, now the song I Love It by Icona Pop is in my head. I think I'm starting to go off on a tangent here. Tangent, tan, blog name... okay I'll stop.

Farmer's Market

Aug 4, 2013

It's a long weekend here in Canada! This time, my family and I ventured to the Farmer's Market in St. Jacobs. It's a really small village but it's full of delicious, fresh food! Just look at those peaches! People also sell their own products and clothing there but the main focus is no doubt the food. Because it was the long weekend, there were a lot of people. It wasn't exactly comfortable walking around. Luckily, the weather was amazing that day so it was really nice to spend the day outside.

My Music History

Aug 2, 2013

I've ALWAYS wanted to have some pictures with my guitar. Maybe it's due to the fact that I see all these amazing photos on the internet of musicians. On the other hand, it may be due to the fact that the pictures I have with my other instruments are not very good. Exhibit A and B:
