Holiday Decor Everywhere!

DSCN0891

Food from heaven! If you are in Canada don’t miss out on the Snowflake Donut at Tim Hortons! It is amazing!

As it is the holiday season, there were decorations up all over Toronto. So I’ll share them with you since there isn’t much of a holiday vibe here in Spain.

Here is the Santa Castle in the Pickering Town Centre! If I had one wish I’d be back there right now! I hope Santa is listening! And a random sparkling deer!

The downtown area in Toronto was also full of lights and decorations! So beautiful!

Holiday vibes all over!

The Eatons Centre was the most impressive with a massive light up tree in the centre of the mall!

DSCN0924

Loves it! It was so tall I couldn’t even get the top part in the shot!

It also had this cool deer halfway down the mall!

Canadian Tire has the best holiday decorations! I am always so inspired when I see their displays!

What a mood!

Check out these gorgeous baubles! All you need for a tree!

Finally I found the tree section! My next tree will be colourful and pre-lit! The blue one is my favourite so far!

Hope you’re having a great holiday season! I’ll slowly catch up on the trip pictures and throw in a few hauls as well!

Keep warm and happy holidays! xoxo!Β

One day in Toronto…

20171202_161550

We had one day in downtown Toronto as it wasn’t a major sightseeing trip, but we still managed to see a few things! The CN Tower being one of them! Beautiful! #nofilter

20171202_15005620171202_150658

The sky while driving into town was beautiful too! There’s nothing quite like Canadian sunsets!

20171202_151553

What could have been…, The Palm on Yonge Street! At one point I viewed the model suites here, but then I ended up moving to Spain! Now I wish I’d just bought the condo!

20171202_15280720171202_152809

Driving through town, still on Yonge Street! So many new condos! I love it!

Random fact from Wikipedia: Apparently Yonge street isn’t the longest street in the world! It is only 86 km long! Who knew! #calamity If you wish to read the entire article I’ll insert the link here;Β Yonge Street Actual Facts

Just a random shot from the parking garage! Can you spot the CN Tower?

Once we got downtown, we saw the Fairmont Royal York Hotel. I haven’t stayed here yet, but I hear it’s fantastic! Maybe next trip?

20171202_162812

Here’s a view of the city I love!

Something out of this world! I have no idea where I took this picture, but it’s gorgeous!

Here’s a link to the video of driving downtown if you want to visualise…

Happy Holidays and Catch those Flights! xoxoΒ 

As ready for Halloween as ever!

1508930873922

Although Spain is still hot and sunny, its been getting a bit cooler in the evenings, meaning fall is coming at last! I’ve also received the odd invitation to Halloween events at local bars! That, and some places have decoration up! However it’s not a major thing here unless you have children!

So I’m not entirely sure if I want to decorate this year, I’m considering adding some decor to my mantle piece and have found some awesome i deas that can be done for cheap! I found all of these ideas on a website called IdeaStand.com and will post some of the pictures from the site so you can see my favourites! The link to the article where all of the ideas can be found isΒ 25 Easy and Cheap DIY Halloween Decoration Ideas

My all time favourite that they posted is the Halloween Town! I think it would look fantastic on my mantle piece!

However these apothecary jars and bottles look cool too!

Especially if I add in some glamorous skulls!

I think for the bottom section I’d like these flower pots as well! They are spooky without being tacky! I really am enjoying the darker colour theme this website proposes!

As a finishing touch I think these DIY bats are awesome because you can arrange them any way you like!

Let’s see how well I do, considering I’m in a tourist area where shopping is very different compared to shopping in North America! #homesweethome

At least my Happy Planner is ready to go! I’ve made some fun Halloween Inserts that feature my hand-drawn doodles and some fun quotes! I’ll link my new Etsy shop so you can try them out if you wish!Β Yatsinas Art Shop on Etsy

Here is my Happy Witch and the quote on the back!

And my Pumpkin Themed design!

All of them are cut out in unusual shapes and laminated for strength and I’ll be adding more designs to the shop as I go! It’s literally brand new!

New Polyvore Group!

I’ve been really enjoying Polyvore these days! It is my virtual dream closet, and I do plan to buy my favourite items as soon as life settles down! But for now I love to visualise the outfits that I could wear!

So I’ve decided to create a Fashion Group and I’ll leave the link below! I hope that if you have a Polyvore account and like my style, you’ll join! I’m hoping to reach 30 Followers as soon as possible so I can host a contest with a cute little prize! (I’ve already got the prize sitting here, looking at me!)

So here is the link!Β Yatsinas Fashion InspirationΒ and I hope to see you soon!

Happy Shopping and Creating!Β 

Little Things! Shopping Haul!

As always, I love shopping for the little things to spice up my life!

20170827_141636~2~2

And Primark is always my favourite destination! So here’s what I got!…

20170827_141739~2

This plastic clutch was only 4.00$ and holds everything I need so I plan to use it as a purse! It photographs off-white but is actually quite bright! Here are some pics where I used it to spice up my standard summer outfit consisting of a t-shirt and shorts!

I also got this Strobe Highlight Kit which was on sale for 2.00$! It’s not very pigmented but I have used it on my cheeks as well as my eyes! It’s quite cute!

I also got two packs of press on nails for 1.50$ each! A total bargain and I always love their fashionable colours and designs!

20170827_141825~2

I’ve put on the light beige set and for extra fun, added some OPI Hello Kitty nailpolish! And a matching pedicure!

Here’s the close-up of my hand! The shape is gorgeous!

Finally I went to the local makeup-shop called Primor! They sell makeup and body care products that range from low to high end brands and I love this shop! This trip I picked up this eyeshadow/ eyeliner from MUA on sale for 1.00$ which I love, although it isn’t as pigmented as I expected…

Her is a picture of it when I put it on by itself…

20170907_134120~2

So instead I used it as a base, and layering other colours it looks good!

20170907_135837~2

So as part of my series of calamities I’ve been going through lately, the landlord is doing construction on my patio, replacing the tiles! So I have lost some of my photo-taking-set! However my assistant thinks, taking the pics by the old flower-pot is just as fun! And who’s to argue with a cute Yorkie?…

Bob and I hope life is treating you well and you’re enjoying fall! …Happy Shopping!

Summer adventures Part Two! πŸŒ…πŸ‹πŸ‹πŸ³πŸ’™

  1. ME at Selwo Marina Delphinarium!!!…We got the Multi-Pass for three activities for a discounted price from the ticket office in Fuengirola port meaning it worked out to   33.00$ per person and included the Birds of Prey show in Benalmadena and the cable car, Selwo Marina Delphinarium in Benalmadena and the Selwo Aventura park in Estepona! You can get the tickets at different locations but I’ll leave the link to their website so you can find them if you are in the area! Staff is very friendly, helpful and speak fluent English!  πŸ³ http://theportticketoffice.com/

I’ve already posted about the amazing Birds of Prey show, so for the Selwo Marina Delphinarium I can only say good things! All the animals are entertained, have nice enclosures and the birds are allowed to fly free a few times a day! Without too much bla bla bla, here are some cute animal pics to inspire you! πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ¦DSCN0322DSCN0317DSCN0309DSCN030820170804_133749

The shows are short and entertaining so you can see many different animals up close without feeling like you’re stressing them out! πŸ˜‡

DSCN0339DSCN0342DSCN0344DSCN0352DSCN0353DSCN0355DSCN0358

In some enclosures you can go inside the cage for a short time to see the animals up close with no cages separating you! 🐒🐊🐍🐑

DSCN0307DSCN0305DSCN0334DSCN0329

Others have glass or fences, but you can still see the animals really close without disturbing them! 🐊🐍🐍🐧

I highly recommend this place for your next trip to Fuengirola/Malaga! I don’t usually enjoy zoos but this is one of the few where the animals look content! πŸ’™ πŸŸπŸ πŸ‘πŸ³πŸ‹πŸ’™

Happy adventuring! πŸ’™πŸŒ…πŸ’™
