Instagram Dump: June 2014


It’s Fridaaay! #simple #OOTD

I have just come out from an interview for my upcoming co-op term and decided to go shopping to “celebrate” because I felt that I did really well (which I did because I got the offer, but didn’t take it). This was taken in a dressing room in Topshop and I figured, why not take advantage of the amazing lighting for an OOTD (outfit of the day)? This was the outfit I wore to my interview (and a deep-purple blazer which you can’t see in this photo). Dress, flats, and bag are from H&M. Belt is from Urban Behaviour.


Thank you @thesteppie for sending me these phone cases! The pandas are super adorable! #cute #iphone

The story behind winning these adorable phone cases was one that I was not expecting. I’ve been a huge fan of Steppie’s designs since 2010 when I first ordered an ‘I Am A Ninja’ crewneck sweater and LOVED it. I follow her on Instagram and when she announced the contest to win a phone case for you and your friend, I immediately tagged my best friend @ellemikom and thought nothing else of the contest. After all, she has thousands of followers which probably meant hundreds of entries. To my surprise a few days later, I received a notification through Instagram that we were selected as the winners! I was ecstatic and contacted her and my best friend right away. A week later, these adorable cases arrived in the mail and to this day, it is still my phone case. If you like adorable designs of pandas, giraffes, and other cute animals on high-quality products, I highly recommend checking out Steppie’s site and designs. They are so cute and make great presents. Thank you so much again, Steppie!


Becoming one with nature #summerforever

I was in a park with a wiiiiide open field and took the opportunity to pose in the sun. Nothing special, but I did get really tan that day. I think I should probably address this here to those of you who know me personally This was taken at my then boyfriend’s birthday. We are no longer together because distance got too difficult to manage. I’ll spare you the details, but that’s the gist of it. I don’t regret our relationship; I actually learned a lot more about myself. I’ll probably make another post sometime later when I’m ready to confront my feelings, but that’s that.


It’s been a long time coming! Congratulations arts grads 2014! #UwaterlooGrad #UWOW12leaders #artsgetsalittlebitrowdy

Choosing to become an orientation leader in 2012 was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life, and these people are just the few that I’ve gotten to know over time. Congratulations Ron, Harry, and Jeff! You guys will go far. 🙂 I won’t forget all the times you guys called me “short”, all those times you’ve “bullied” me, but it’s okay because I love y’all anyways.

Simple as that. It was father’s day and I wanted a picture with him. This was taken on my California 2013 trip in San Francisco. The Golden Gate Bridge during sunset = perfection.


I didn’t know what you were, but you scared the crap out of me. #summerlightsfestival

The summer lights festival was going on in Kitchener, Ontario so my roommate and I decided to go and check it out. There were many things going on such as dancing, food trucks, and sculpting, but it would have been better if it wasn’t divided into two areas. While walking along the street, this “koi fish” came up to me and attempted to pat me on the head, but instead it slapped me because its arm was so big. You could imagine that it scared me really bad.. But I had to take a picture with it.


So uh, how’s the view up there? #shortpeopleproblems #tbt

I came across this photo when cleaning out my iPhoto on my Macbook and decided to post it up as a Throwback Thursday. Everyone already pokes fun at how short I am, so why not join them with my own short joke? This was taken in San Francisco, California at the Golden Gate Bridge. I’m assuming he was the founder.. I think..

Start of a long weekend. #OOTD

I don’t get many chances to get dressed up for dinner parties, so when I do, I need to get an outfit photo. I was getting ready for Nikhil’s dinner at West 50. My outfit is inspired by neutral tones (what else is new..) but I wanted it to center around my high-low skirt. Since I was back in sauga for the weekend and away from my room in ‘loo, I forgot to pack a nice top, so I had to grab one from my room back in my hometown. I also forgot to pack heels when so my mom let me borrow her snakeskin-print low heels which I absolutely LOVE (and might steal from her closet in the future..) My top is from Old Navy. Skirt is from Forever 21. Belt is from some old dress. Shoes are from my mom.


You were beautiful in every way. #monttremblant #village

This was one of the most beautiful views I’ve ever seen in my life. To watch my full adventure in Mont Tremblant, click here.
