Food Blog Love

I have developed an unhealthy/fattening obsession with food blogs! I love looking at the bright photos and the food...mmmmmmm. Definitely not good for anyone considering cutting back on their food intake. All those delicious images make me want to hit the grocery store and spend the next few hours making a feast.

A website worthy of note is it seriously is amazing. Endless pages of food pornography and so many links to food blogs.

South St Burger

Update: As a Bzzagent, I was sent several coupons to test the products and share with individuals. So I went and ordered one of their burger combos and it was good. Albeit, I was starving so I woofed the thing down like a crazed woman. The burgers are big too! My only qualms is that the burger patty was a bit too dry for my liking. Perks of eating there are that their meat are preservative free, no antibiotics, locally grown? and the crazy variety of toppings (25 varieties)! They have wasabi mayo and cajun onions. It took me forever to decide what I wanted on my burger and by the time I was done it was bursting. I love that they serve New York Fries with the burger and you also have the option of making your fries into a poutine. My qualms about this place is that it's super pricey. One combo with cheese came up to about $12.00 pretty pricey for a fast food operation. My boyfriend enjoyed his thoroughly and the staff were very nice. Can't beat good customer service!

My family wants to give this place a go and since I still have a few of those coupons left, we'll be checking it out together. I'll try to take some pics!

Sun's Out!

well, it was on Monday but not so much today or the remainder of the week. I typically wear my spf45 facial lotion but on days where its really hot (re:last Thursday during my rollerblading session!) I like to apply sunscreen first then a moisturizer. I bought the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Face Sunscreen SPF 60 (approx. $12.00) for those days when I will be spending more time outdoors. It's actually quite thick and takes a while to absorb into the skin. The consistency is slightly thick and there is no scent. I have not experienced any negative skin reactions to the product (combo skin) either. It is a poor base for makeup (I wear mineral makeup) so it makes the makeup look smeary - not good! When wearing this, I avoid wearing makeup, maybe just a little under eye concealer and that's it.

Back of the bottle:

Oil free abd PABA free, non-greasy feel
Waterproof, sweat proof
Gentle enough for sensitive skin
Fragrance free
Non comedogenic

*broad spectrum UVA/UVB

Overall, it sounds like a pretty sunscreen and it actually is. I'd say its only downfall would be that it makes for a poor base to apply makeup over! Perfect beach sunscreen though.

3 Stars!

Baggage ...Edit

2010 Spring collection - Mmmm, what to get?

Love the look of the black items, very classic.
The pink and yellow are so nice, not colors I would normally pick for leather.
Taupe purse is really catching my eye but I have so many browns.
I believe it is 15 by 10inches? approx.

I'm not normally a coach fan but I love the look of the leather and the logo is very discrete. no monograms here =)

**After going into the store and seeing the bags, I must say that I am not a fan at all. The leather seemed very cheap and had the consistency of pvc..good quality pvs, haha. The only thing that I semi liked was the black wallet, the leather felt much thicker and softer but it was still very plain looking. I will be passing up on this collection. Until next time..ciao!

Long and Lean at 5'5

I bought a pair of jeans yesterday. I've been searching forever for jeans with a nice fit and a gorgeous dark wash, also something that would make my legs look super long! We all know that skinny jeans are horrible at that. Especially on my body shape, I have big thighs so it's typically a nightmare to find jeans that fit both my waist and thighs. I believed I solved my problems with Gap's Long and Lean. They fit nicely around the waist and aren't super tight around the thigh area.I love that you can dress them up and down depending on your shoes and top. I will definitely need to get them hemmed, they're too long even with heels on. I will post a picture of them on me some time later.

I think the retail value is around $79.80 Cdn

Today's going to be a pretty busy day. How odd that CNY just happens to fall on the same day as Valentine's day. I know there's a lot of animosity towards v-day but I personally don't mind it. I've heard all of this before, that it is a consumerist holiday and a gimmicky day created by card companies and whatnot to get you to buy buy buy. For me, it's just an extra opportunity to get all cuddly and sweet with my significant other. This can be rebutted by those anti-vday folks who may say that I could do this any day of the year without a need for this 'holiday'. There's truth in those words but it really isn't that big of a deal. there are people that love the extra opportunity to celebrate a holiday, gimmick or not. Then there are those that see it as a chance to groge on chocloate and watch girly movies with their s.o. Regardless, it's all harmless fun.

Happy Valentine's Day (to all the non-haters =) )


Happy Chinese New Years to all the Asians out there!! to dim sum now!
