midsummer it would seem (sunday snaps)



Being a little creative with liquid eyeliner, curves on Photoshop and flowing silhouettes | Painting my nails in pretty shades with cheap (but wonderful quality) polishes | Still a little in awe about the cover of Frankie 50th issue, still can't figure out how they managed such a realistic embroidery emboss 

Today was another sweltering day and I had no choice but to spend most of it lying under the fan and listening to Plan B. Transitional seasons are meant to ease you into the next season, but instead BAM! we're hit with a summer heatwave. It's not that bad though as it's the perfect excuse for making fruit ice smoothies and swimming. How's the weather where you are? Not too unbearable I hope!

This weekend has been mighty relaxing so far. Yesterday I went op-shopping with my friend, Ruby, and we bought a few things at the local thrift stores. I purchased a cute blue satchel and some makeup and she got the cutest vintage denim vest, skirt and grey top. We then had a lovely morning tea and discussed the latest happenings.
Well, I better skootch, math homework is beckoning (wish me luck with the first question)!

Hi! I really like the fact that you find so much things in thrift stores. Here in Montreal (Canada) I never spotted a great one.

Oh you look beautiful, perfect look for a summers day! The weather here is very cold and foggy - but I must admit I do enjoy the excuses to pile on the jumpers!

The Frankie cover looks amazing, I'm with you in this - How did they make it so life like?

The title is so apt. Love the floral headband, too! It's raining for days where I am. Been feeling a bit under the weather, too.

You are so gorgeous, Maria! I love your winged eyeliner and your flower headpiece and your outfit with different shades of pink - everything, really! I feel your pain about the heatwave. It's supposed to be autumn in my part of the world, but it was 80-ish degrees today. Ick!
