#MusicMonday

I don't know about you guys, but it's been a while since I've had a Monday this bad.
Couldn't sleep, woke up with a headache, the weather is beyond drab & work is drrrraaaaggggginnnnngggg...
Luckily I've got dC to make me a 'feel better' playlist <3

Enjoy!

The Not-So-New Badge

So I created a new blog badge a while ago and totally forgot to talk about it! This one is far more 'me' - simple and classy without being over the top. It also reflects the blog much better as it also incorporates the blog background which happens to be my fave Van Gogh piece.

Please do share it! :)

Pinteresting Wednesday!


Go link up!

Last week I posted some quotes about how I've been feeling for the last few weeks. This is what I've been telling myself to try to get over it & move on...

Le Weekend


This past weekend was filled with food, fun, relaxation and exploration!


Friday night dinner courtesy of dC
Love this (pillowcase) fabric! Ladies, wedding dress fabric?
Prettied up for a banquet
Walked away with the banquet centrepiece! Love these elegant flowers for a bouquet!

Gangsta class

Magnet wall at a shop in Kensington Market - love exploring my city!

Can't have a weekend without shopping - a treat to myself !:)


Hope y'all had a fantastic weekend as well!

Orthodox Easter!

Easter is by far the biggest (religious) holiday for us Orthodox followers and it also my favourite! I would have liked to take some more pictures but I was far too busy dying Easter eggs, baking Easter bread and eating the latter plus much much more!

Baked that Easter bread on my own & it was just as good as my mom's famously delicious one!

dC helped with the egg dyeing - there were 24 but this is what's left!

Has anyone ever been to an Orthodox Easter with a friend/significant other?

Quotes are one of my most favourite things to pin, and this is how I was kind of feeling the last few weeks:






Yeah, that's just me being my crazy self. Sometimes Princesses have a rough time too.

Easter Prezzies


Got my in-between-Easters prezzie from dC this week!

That would be a Ferrero Rocher chocolate bunny! Plus, such a cute gift bag :)
Can't wait to dye Easter eggs tonight & make Easter bread on Saturday! Def one of my fave holidays!

Happy 18th Baby Sis!

Today is my not-so baby sister's 18th birthday! I can't really wrap my head around that because I am still lightyears 8 years older than her.

She's gone from this...

...to this...

...who would have ever thought? I sure didn't. And this girl calms down the crazy dishes out advice like nobody's business! She must have learned that from me...

Happy 18th Birthday Niki!

I love you :)

The Dirty 30 Marathon

A couple of weeks ago, someone special turned 30! I agreed to take a small break from my Princess status so that dC could have the spotlight to celebrate this milestone. I felt that it was only fitting to celebrate for 3 straight days!

Celebration #1: Prezzies & Cupcakes (courtesy of my pastry chef prodigy sister!)

Celebration #2: Birthday Dinner (delicious gourmet burgers!)
Celebration #3: Party Time!!!

And then I got my Princess status back... ;)

ROM-kinda fun!

I celebrate Orthodox Easter (next week) so this was a perfect weekend for just relaxing and having fun. On Friday we hit up the ROM because I had never been. This is a selection of the fun we had!

The Museum subway station is by far my favourite in Toronto!

Oh heyyy, what's up?

Feeding the animals

Raccoons are my fave (yes, there's a story)


Getting silly

Someone got some 'unwanted' attention

Europe, my love!

Hope everyone had a happy Easter!

Pretty sure I'll never get tired of this song & Kanye is the perfect kind of motivation for Monday!
I'm a fan, in case you didn't know ;)
