Here comes the sun

By C.Elizabeth

We finally had a lovely sunny week in Manchester last week but I was working... and when the weekend came, it was either raining or extremely cold and windy. I also was on a rush, on my way out to dinner when those were taken, so I didn't have time to go outside. It would have been so much better!
I'm wearing a dress I really love, which I bought at Top Shop. I think the classic style of it makes it very easy to wear, anytime. I just got it back recently, after I begged my mom to send it to me from home, in Canada. I can't believe I forgot it there last November. Duh! And I wore my mustard yellow shoes from Target USA as well.

Talking about Canada, I've booked on Saturday our plane tickets to go home for 3 weeks in September! I just CAN'T wait!! Andrew's parents (dad and stepmom) are also coming, what should be so fun!

New camera, new pictures.

By C.Elizabeth

I finally got my new camera! My old one is dying slowly... the battery isn't charging much anymore and the colors are nowhere near as good as they used to be. I've used it for almost 6 years now though and took well over 25 000 pictures. I can't believe I took that many! I invested quite a lot of money in it so I'm very happy it did last me so long.
Therefore, I've been looking for a new one for quite a while now and after lots of research work and keeping in mind our budget, I ordered one last week. It's the KODAK EASYSHARE Z1012 IS. I absolutely LOVE it. I received it yesterday. I'm still not accustomed to it so the pictures I take probably aren't as good as they should be, but it will come!

Here's what it looks like:

Other than that, the weather was very enjoyable today. Some sun (lots of clouds) and warm enough to leave my jacket at home! We went for a little walk before another hectic week starts all over again. Here's what I wore:


Cardigan from Zara, dress by Orion at Top Shop, belt from H&M, leggings from Next (I think), shoes from my mom.

Today, I travelled to the past

By C.Elizabeth

First of all, happy women day to all of you girls!

Not so long ago, I discovered a fantastic skin care brand which I immediately fell in love with. The packaging is fabulous and the quality is even better than I expected. It's "Soap & Glory". Have you ever tried it? I first was attracted by the packaging, which makes me wish I could travel back in time! So I first bought the hand cream and a body spray to see if it would live up to my expectations... and it did. Brilliantly so! So far I bought 2 body sprays (one is also hydrating), a peel off mask for the face, hand cream, body scrubs and a face wash.
There are still quite a few things I want to buy, such as bath foam, body butter and face cream. I'm a bit reluctant about the face cream because my skin is so sensitive... I'm afraid it would either break me out or dry me out. It's been the story of my life so far! Anyway, I will see...

Also, a couple of weeks ago, I finally found the jacket I've been looking for. It's just perfect! I like the color, the style... everything. I haven't really had the chance to wear it due to living in Britain! Cold, rainy... and damp! So I still pretty much so have to wear warmer winter jacket. Anyway, at least I will have it once the weather decides to improve! I probably shouldn't complain about the weather too much though since after talking to my family, I've been told that it's still snowing and pretty cold at home, in Canada. I do miss snow in a way... I find it so much better than rain! Maybe not all the time, but at least for a few months a year.

I've also been shopping with a friend last week and I found some lovely clothes at Zara. I don't usually shop much there because I never seem to find anything... Though, after seeing all the gorgeous stuff they have in there at the moment, I might go back pretty soon! Here's a picture of one cardigan I found... I simply couldn't leave it there! It's so cute and warm.
