Yes It does but who cares???
I've been waiting for the sun to come out so I can start wearing my summer clothes but the weather in Vancouver is menopausal! Its sunny on one days and its freezing the next day! It makes me want to yank my hair out! So I definitely got ahead of myself with these cute shorts!!
On the flip side thank you to Nichelle Paris from NPC Styles, winner of my first giveaway. It was lovely meeting you.

"Even after all this time the sun never says to the earth, 'You owe me.' Look what happens with a love like that, it lights the whole sky" - Hafiz

For lack of anything to say I thought i'd share this quote with you guys. I stole it from my friend Titilope Sonuga who is an amazing poet. I've written it on a sticky note and kept it by my bedside (amongst other quotes) to remind me that there is love all around me, even in the dreariest of times. Feel free to share quotes that inspire you.

    I've been listening to Adele's new album on repeat. I'm officially in love with her. My favourite songs off the album is Turning Table and Someone Like You. She's so wise for someone so young, Her ex must have really hurt her! (the bulk of the songs on her album were written about her ex boyfriend)

    On the other hand, I'm wearing a cropped top for anyone who hasn't noticed yet! I'm a big believer in dressing to for your body. So bigger girls wearing liquid leggings (please throw it away). I saw this cropped top and thought NEVERS! But trying it on, it kinda worked. Its not my favourite thing in my closet but I can flow with it. What do you all think? Keep it or Toss it

    Two years ago I worked for a big ass fashion house that won't be named. Everyone told me what an amazing opportunity it was and my boss wouldn't stop telling me how millions of girls would kill for my job! IT WAS HELL ON EARTH. I loved the brand (and still love it) BUT the people I worked with hated me and most importantly I hated them. I let them walk all over other words I was their bitch, all because I didn't want to seem like the confrontational girl from hell. So I kept quiet when someone offended me or I ignored people who did not do the work I delegated to them. I spent exactly one year with the company and I packed my bags and left. Now I've learned, I'm NO ONES BITCH.
