Torremolinos Day trip! 

I’ve posted pictures of this town before, but it is always a fun day trip! 

We visited our friends who own bars there and enjoyed the main square. 

Here are a few pictures of the view!

Being a #parisvegan I sinned and had a cheese sandwich with fries! 

The square is full of bars and people so it doesn’t matter where you go, you are going to have a good time! 

After we walked to the Europa monument in a side street! This area is special to me since I used to sit under these trees every evening when I was considering moving to Spain. 

Oh the memories!

In Calle San Miguel you can shop till you drop, so I don’t remember which shop I went to, but I got these comfortable shoes for only 20.00$!

On the way home, this pigeon asked to have his picture taken..so here he is…Senior Pigeon! 

It was a great day! 

Happy adventuring!

Food! Glorious Food! #Vegetarian #Vegan

This pretty much sums up my entire trip to Canada! All we did was eat from start to finish! Diet? What diet? lol

I can’t get over the variety and amazing food there is in all the local supermarkets! This is just a tiny portion of the store! #homesick

The vegan options are endless! Vegan sausages! Vegan egg! Veganaise! I’d have to travel to the end of the earth to get that here!

Vegan breakfast!…

The best thing for me is that the fruit and veggies actually taste of what they are, not some watered down chemically altered versions as everything is pretty much organic! #lovesit

DSCN0829

Of course I had to have poutine…

And Starbucks! My favourite coffee shop in the world! Look at how beautifully they decorated the coffees! Gold sparkles!

It was my mums birthday so we had homemade vegan chilli with rice, salad and Mexican dips! Beyond delicious! Check out the size of the strawberry on the cake we got at Metro! #yum

Of course we also had to try the local Vegan restaurant! We went three times in two weeks and it was beyond delicious! We can’t wait to go back! I’ll leave the link to their Trip Advisor site in case you’re in the Whitby area and are craving delicious Vegan food!

Here is the link to their Trip Advisor Page! Copper Branch Brooklin

So I hope you enjoyed my Ode to Food! It was amazing and I can’t wait to go back!

Happy Eating! 

 

 

Small Haul from Canada and Portugal #travel #shopping

DSCN0810 (2)

Shopping in Canada… Paradise!

I didn’t get to go often, but here is my loot! I got myself a Sephora Collection Make No Mistake Foundation Conceiler Stick! It is perfect and gives me almost full coverage, depending on how I apply it! I can even use it as a conceiler around my eyes!

DSCN0808DSCN0809

Rainforest of the Sea Drops  were on my wishlist since forever! I remember seeing them on Instagram! Let me tell you… they are as awesome as they appear! I can use them as a moisturising layer on top of my makeup or just as a gentle highlighter! It is very liquid though, so be careful opening and using it so it doesn’t spill! I’d die if it fell over! #calamity lol

Those were my “luxury” purchases! It got a bit more reasonable after that! lol

DSCN0846

Bath and Body Works was a must! I went in to pick up a present for my mum and ended up with these lovely candles for myself! They are small, but the smell spreads throughout the apartment!

DSCN0847

I also picked up this LUSH bathbomb. It was about 7.00$. Just don’t ask me which flavour it was, all I know is that it smells amazing and I haven’t even tried it yet! I will defile the bathtub asap!

DSCN0850DSCN0852 (2)

I’ve always wanted to learn Calligraphy so when I found this set for 20.00$ I had to have it! It comes with the pens, ink and a practice book! Loves it!

DSCN0856

I picked up these two books to satisfy my inner nerd! The Mammoth Book of the Mafia I got at the airport in Portugal so I didn’t get to take a good picture!

DSCN1133

In Lisbon airport I picked up these stickers for 2.00$ at the Accessorize Store! I’ll use them to mark any pet-related activities in my Happy Planner! Too cute!

DSCN1134

Finally I couldn’t resist these cute sparkly headphones! However they don’t really sit well in my ears and keep falling out! What a pitty! Or maybe I just need bigger ears? Lol

That’s it for my Small Haul from my trip! I hope you enjoyed it!

Happy Shopping! xoxo! 

Small Haul! Keep calm and walk the dog!

It’s been a no-spend year for me! I don’t even need a printable to keep track! I just know not to spend anything! That’s where the little things really cheer me up! It is so hard to hold back when you see all the amazing thing other bloggers are buying!

So I got myself a cute top from the Sales section at Rosewholesale.com and I’ll leave the link so you can check it out! Rosewholesale Crochet Trim Top   I am part of their referral program, but I would also shop from their site if I were not! I will never recommend a product I don’t completely adore!

DSCN0717DSCN0724DSCN0732 (2)

It’s a light material but also keeps me quite warm and I love the embroidered details and the cutout shoulders! And it’s really good quality, considering it cost me 1.25$ plus shipping! At the moment it’s on sale for 0.99$ so catch it while you can! Perfect for a casual outfit and I think I could even pull it off with a skirt for a more elegant look!

Here is a closeup of the embroidery!

DSCN0762

The next thing I got from Rosewholesale.com was for my partner, but I decided to take pictures wearing it so you can see what it looks like on a body! The men’ s section is also very cool with unusual designs and great quality! He’s been living in it! In this case I bought a medium size and it fits both of us! It cost 8.85$ and shipping and I’ll leave the link in case you’re looking for cool gifts for the men in your life! Santa Claus Mens Sweatshirt

DSCN0742DSCN0753DSCN0757

It’s a super comfortable and soft hoodie that really keeps you warm! Trust me, I’ve tried it!

Another little thing that made my day was this cute mug from Aldi! We picked it up for about 2.99$ It sums up my life!

DSCN0776

I also got my favourite make up remover wipes from Aldi for about 1.50$ I think I’ve talked about them before! They are very gentle and remove even waterproof makeup! And it contains the famous micelar water which is supposed to be very good for your skin!

DSCN0772

Finally I picked up these cute paperclips at the dollar shop! They fit the travel theme perfectly and I hope they keep me motivated!

DSCN0778DSCN0781

Hopefully it all goes well and I can upgrade to some more luxurious shopping sprees soon!

Keep warm and Happy Shopping! 

I sure hope so!…

I found this quote and I sure hope it applies! I have booked my flights! Off to Canada it is! I cannot wait! Although Spain has been a fun adventure, the everyday life is too slow moving for me! Can you imagine that my internet was cut off because it has a limited amount of data you can use a month? (Hence being MIA for a few days!) Or that you cannot pay a bill unless if you have an appointment on a specific day? That never happened in Canada! I am missing good old North American efficiency!

The only thing keeping me going is my Happy Planner! So here are some pictures in romantic lighting of how I decorated my weeks of slow to no internet!

IMG_0769 (2)

The sidebar I decorated with free printables from victoriathatcher.com and @gpstickerstudio on Etsy! If you join their Facebook group, they sometimes do free printables that you can size according to your needs!

 

My full boxes are from GPStickerStudio although I’m not sure they still have the same sets available! I still recommend this shop for all your planner needs!

The next week is a complete mix of free stickers, stickers I had from my scrap-booking albums and I even made my own banners with washi tape! You can see I am on a no-spend month while I complete my move!

IMG_0764 (2)

The only noteworthy thing, besides my running around organising things was the epic thunderstorm we had that knocked out the lights and flooded lots of places!

I call more than one day off quantity time since I’m not used to having that much free time! I like how the improvised banner turned out though! And the stamps from Aldi worked really well! No running and they dried really fast too!

 

IMG_0766 (2)

Finally I’m up to date with planning! This week was epic with running around to different offices! Check out the romantic shot! lol  IMG_0778 (2)

Here is a overview of my spread! I like the colour combination! I didn’t think it would work so well!

IMG_0775 (2)

I am enjoying my handmade page dividers! This week I’m using them more for decoration, but they are functional as well as they stick out from the planer, letting my know which page I’m at! I especially love that they move independently and don’t take up the entire page! If you wish to check them out, the link to my shop is here; YatsinasArtShoponEtsy

IMG_0777 (2)

My favourite feature in this weeks spread is the inspirational quotes! With all the calamities I faced, I needed every single one!

IMG_0773 (2)

IMG_0774 (2)

That’s my update so far! I have been really busy these days but should be doing some fun shopping hauls and activities soon!

So Happy Planning and Book that Flight!

The results of my rainy day excursion!… My happy mail from TropicaliSupply.com arrived! Unfortunately the weather and light didn’t cooperate so it took me a while to get half decent pictures! Living in the Costa del Sol, the land of Sun, I couldn’t find any sunshine to save my life! I had to try about three times!

I wear a small, and the size is completely accurate for me! The colours are bright and sunny and I love their cute designs! They are totally worth the price and feel really luxurious without having to break the bank to buy them! I’ll be shopping there again!
