MOM JEANS

MOM JEANS

Who knew mom’s old clothes would be so cool?

According to the fashion industry, stealing your mom’s pair of ’80s or ’90s jeans are the “in” thing to do right now. Or, if your mom has gotten rid of her “mom jeans,” going to the thrift store to buy someone else’s mom’s old jeans is also a thing you can do. So I did just that. I asked my mom for her old ’80s jeans. It’s a little loose on the waist, but overall, it gives that desired “vintage” mom jeans look.

I find it pretty hilarious that mom jeans have been on trend for years because I’ve seen photos of my mom in her old jeans and … they’re not the prettiest sight. (Cue SNL‘s “Mom Jeans” skit). But of course everything in fashion comes down to styling. If you style your mom jeans in a more modern or vintage-inspired look, you can avoid appearing frumpy.

TOP FIVE BOOKS I READ IN 2018 SO FAR

TOP FIVE BOOKS I READ IN 2018 SO FAR

So it’s more than halfway through 2018 and I have read 59 books so far. Woot, woot. I’ve already reached by goal of 52 books (*pats self on the back*), so I upped the challenged to 80 books. I think I’ll be able to handle that. I mean, if I wanted to be ambitious, I would have set my goal to 100 books, but the inner lazy reader in me was protesting.

Anywho, I wanted to quickly discuss some of my favourite books so far (and series, hehe. Yeah, it’s technically more than one book, but it’s my blog and I can do what I want to!).

Without further ado, here’s my favourites in descending order.

CHECKING OUT CARAVAL’S CIRCUSY CLOSET

CHECKING OUT CARAVAL’S CIRCUSY CLOSET

It’s my second Booklook post! I decided maybe I’d pair these with reviews of the books I’m highlighting. I don’t know yet. We’ll see. I don’t want this blog to be solely books. I still want to add in some fashion. But I’m indecisive. So I guess it’ll be a surprise.

Anyways, if you haven’t read my previous Booklook post, this series is basically me drawing fashion and style inspirations from the books I’ve read. I’ll usually take the inspiration from the setting, the character description (sometimes their outfits are described) or both.

ALL THE BOOKS I READ IN JANUARY

ALL THE BOOKS I READ IN JANUARY

Happy belated January wrap-up! Yup, I’m very behind. Blame either work (for making me tired) or me (for just being a lazy bum). Either one is correct.

Anyways, I read (and listened) to a grand total of … five books. It’s not the biggest amount, but I’m very proud of it. I call myself a lazy reader, which means I want to read all the books but I lack the motivation to start and actually read them. So I end up reading one book over months.

But with the reading goals I set for myself, I’m way more motivated to pick up a book. Which is great for my reading (but not so great for my wallet because once I start reading all the unread books on my shelves, then I, of course, need to buy more!! It’s the only logical conclusion).

READING GOALS IN 2018

READING GOALS IN 2018

(Note: Wow, this is going up super late! Oh wells…)

As you may already know, I love books. My dream is to have my own personal library at my house. But the crazy thing is that I don’t really read a lot of books within a year. Sometimes I just don’t feel like reading anything, or I just don’t have enough time to read. Also, if I read too much, my eyes get strained and I get migraines, so that’s no fun. But this year, I decided to set reading goals and set an amount of books I want to read.

MISS PEREGRINE’S CLOSET FOR PECULIAR FASHION

MISS PEREGRINE’S CLOSET FOR PECULIAR FASHION

I love fashion (as if you didn’t already know), but I also love books. Perhaps just as much, if not more. I love reading and getting lost in a book and being invested in the characters’ lives, journey and adventure.

So I decided to start this new series on my blog called Booklook where I draw inspiration for outfits from the books I’ve read. I want to do reviews sometime soon, too.

Anyways, I decided to start off this series with an outfit inspiration from Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.

TOBERMORY CAMPING

TOBERMORY CAMPING

Oh Tobermory, I never get sick of that place! I’ve been thinking about it more recently due to the recent cold, wintery weather we’ve been having here. *Sigh* So I decided to create a post looking back at the warm, summer days at Tobermory.

If you’ve never heard of Tobermory, it’s a small town located around four hours north of Toronto, near Georgian Bay. I suggest the best way to make the most of your stay is to go camping. There’s nothing like being surrounded by your closest friends in the wilderness (ok, wilderness might be exaggerating it a little) and just having a good time.

With no electricity and very poor cell phone signal ( … trust me, it gets better), you can actually talk with your friends or family without any distractions from the ever-present social media posts. Plus, it’s good for keeping active and having fun because there’s so many trails to hike and chores to do around the campsite. Yes, I just said chores are fun, at least only when it comes to camping.
