18!

On a side note, my birthday is coming up within a month! I'm pretty excited as Eighteen seems like a pretty interesting age. I know that it doesn't unlock a lot of new things,but hey at least I can buy a lottery ticket now! It's also pretty cool that I can vote now , unfortunately, elections have just passed and that means i won't be able to exercise this right for another two - four years!

Let's see, what else does this age entail..I can sign legal documents now which is pretty interesting. So not only can I sign myself out of school, but I can be the sole owner of a credit card!

Oh it just seems so exciting, can't wait (:

Ceramic Watches

They've been the latest trend for the longest time and I can't get over it! Embarassing is the fact that I only knw about the designer watches, and not the ones known simply for being the best in the industry

Toywatch actually had another sale, and I absoutely love them! Only $100! But I have one already, and i supposed if I got a second one it should be of another brand..



Currently craving a Marc by Marc Jacbos or Michael Kors watch.

HOLTS!

Also known as Holt Renfrew, and easily recognized by its deep shade of pink, it is a high end store in Canada.

Today was the second day of their Spring promotion (yay!) that allowed you to receive a gift card with 25% of  the price of your purchase. This means, that if you bought an item that cost $100 you got a Holt Renfrew giftcard with $25 on it, only limitation is that it must be spent in the month of may.

So as I said, it was the second day. In total the promotion will be available for three days, however; the first day was exclusive for its members (which I believe are customers who are signed up with their credit card). Personally, I only arrived there at 6pm, luckily the store is open until 9 on Saturdays, but with so many people scrambling to find something they liked I'm sure most of the original stock had been bought.

*What I learnt today is that really smart shoppers put aside items on hold in advance, and simply leave their credit card numbers, so that the employees can simply charge it on the morning of the first day! Pretty smart, and that means that they get the advantage of both the discount and the full selection!



Soo *happy*, I ended up coming home tonight with this lovely bag. A belated birthday present, which is a Marc by Marc Jacobs purse Classic Q Percy!

One question I have is, how do people know the name of their purse? It always takes me ages to google around with the most vague keywords, to eventually stumble upon it accidentally.

NEW: Wow I just realized that the straps can be taken off, and that it would be an amazing clutch! I also wanted to note how soft the leather is, its amazing

Also note that I've started adding pictures, I think it makes such a nice difference!

Menchies Fro-Yo

Menchies, is an extremely cute frozen yogurt store! As of now, there are only two locations in Canada one at Bathurst and Rutherford and another at Bloor St.

What makes this franchise so much better (in my opinion) than Yogen Fruz and others that are similar such as Marble Slab?

The unique flavors, variety of toppings that are topping, and most importantly how they charge you, which is by weight! Because of their pricing model, I'm no longer restricted to having only one or two toppings and choose to get a little bit of everything.

Although they sell frozen yogurt, and not ice cream I don't see that as their downfall by any means. Some will say that it doesn't taste as good, but believe me the combinations of toppings and and their fro-yo is still a delicious.

An example of two flavours that I've gotten before is Cake Batter and Red Velvet! Oh and I forgot to mention, that they have nearly 20 "McDonald Ketchup cup-sized" testers that are available. This means that you can sample every flavor until you find one that you like.

They have bites of skor available. graham cracker crumbs, reese pieces, M&Ms, marshmallows, real pieces of Cheesecake, cookie dough, and more! These are actually just a lot of the toppings that I've gotten (all at once), which is why I remember them.

So the bowl that they offer you is actually quite large, which may actually cause you to feel obliged to fill the whole thing up! Be careful since you may go overboard and leave having to pay over 7$! Well I've never actually done that since mine usually cost between $3-5, but I'm sure that its possible.

Lastly, they have a points card that you can get known as your "Smileage". Upon online activation you start off with 25 points, and when you hit 50 that's when you can redeem them for 5$ off! It seems pretty nice, but each point is earned after spending $1, so essentially you'll be only redeeming every so often having spent $50 there which I hope is not too frequently..

Timmie Lunch!

So today, I had no school since it was Passover. Not because I'm jewish though, but because the majority of my school is so the classes are usually empty with only a handful of students, or the teachers themselves are away and so there is just a substitute and most of the time goes to waste.

And so I decided to go to Tim Hortons work, even after having a huge breakfast! Early on I used to always skip breakfast, but now it's one of my favorite meals of the days -  but thats probably because I like to eat as much as I want since it's "early in the day". Breakfast consisted of some cinnamon & honey oatmeal, bunches of oat cereal and some toast, though it probably should be considered an early lunch since it was at lunch. Oh well, then I wouldn't have gotten to eat some Timmies!

So when I got there I had a Chicken noodle soup, (apparently it's one of the calorie-light soups which may make it seem like I'm watching my nutrition.. but you'll see), a low-fat "Berry Burst?" muffin, and a chocolate dipped donut! Mmm, I also traded in my usual double-double for a coffee with milk and a shot of hazelnut but it turned out tasting super diluted and bland.

The muffin was actually the most interesting one! According to the nutrition pamphlet (yeah..I checked) its supposed to have only around 200 calories, and I was in the mood so I decided to try it. Its pretty different compared to regular ones, the inside of the muffin looks WHITE besides the sweet berries. It's also pretty sweet and sticky, and tastes kind of different than a usual muffin, almost candy-like. Anyway I'm not sure, but I think I really liked it and will probably have it again.

Happy Passover and Easter to everybody !

starbucks receipt system.

I love it.

What is it? It's free coffee/ drinks haha!

Bet that's what you've always wanted, to be able to have their drinks without paying ridiculous amounts (: ta-da that's what I've been doing as of recently.

Basically at your local starbucks, randomly sometimes reciepts are printed after you order, and it offers you a chance to fill out a survey about your starbucks experience and it rewards you by giving you a free drink! The thing is, that sometimes the baristas will not automatically give it to you and will choose to save it for their regulars, or simply the nicer customers. The best, is to get one reciept after cashing in on your other one (: It's too bad that you can't use them for their baked goods (that are pretty terrible for you..) but I'll take what I can get.

So get talking to the Barista's, be nice, and enjoy some free drinks

baking blogs

So one thing about me, is I really like to eat, baked goods. I also really like to bake so it works out pretty well, except I pretty much end up eatting everything that I make. I know - I'm going to be fat. ):

I recently got a kitchenaid mixer actually, a beautiful Red Kitchenaid Professional one! But nyways so what I've been doing for the last hour is reading baking blogs and making my mouth water. The pictures are take beautifully, and everything just looks so delicious! The one I liked the most was :
