042. (Relaxation..)



Don't you love those days where you can just sit down and relax? Yesterday, my co-worker told me we had a day off from work today! I thought I had to go to the doctors today but it's actually tomorrow... so I spent all my day sleeping in then going out with my boyfriend. I had sushi for dinner! HA... ha.. ha. It's actually cheap at this place we go to, so it's affordable and so, so good. Then we walked by an abandoned church, it's so creepy just looking at it.




What is the best thing to do to relax? Of course, and I baked! I baked macarons. I kind of screwed up my first batch but I improved on my 2nd one.



I would normally blog about my macarons on my food blog but I'll probably do a big macaron post on my food blog soon. My first batch was a disaster because I was careless, I knew they were meringues and they shouldn't be overcooked. I accidentally put the temperature at 180 C and they got burnt and did not develop the "pieds" macarons do. Oh well! Trial and error.
I stopped by the crafts store to buy food colourant and stuff. Afterwards my boyfriend and I decided to stop by the Bulk Barn and buy ingredients for my next baking adventures. My boyfriend went overboard and bought an arseload full of candy. THEN, we went to see "The Karate Kid". Was cliche and okay... not something I'd go see again really.



Here's what I ended up wearing.



Dress H&M Garden Collection | BeltThrifted | Boots Thrifted Harley Davidson (lol) | Blazer Old Navy Thrifted. | Wallet Guess

I love this dress, it's so flowy and gorgeous! It's dark but still feminine! I wouldn't have been able to snag this dress without my online twin, Maria. I love her so much for buying me this dress!



Here it is in detail.



Here are the boots I got. I love them. They're comfy and they can "toughen" up my outfits, haha...

Overall, a good day. <3

  5. I just bought this dress a month ago and have yet to wear since I had the same idea as you and wanted to wear it with a black blazer and currently don't have one in my closet.

    I am so jealous! I am going to have to get on finding the right blazer so I too can wear this amazing dress.

    you look great in it.

  6. Love the dress! Also, I made my second try at macarons last week - holy labor intsensive! My hat's off to you. I now think that the trend towards "savory" macarons is a whole new kind of wacky - who wants yet more work???
