Skirt: F21, Top: my mama, Shoes: MRKT, Belt: Ardene
I'm not good with the naming posts these past couple days. Lucky each day has a name....um yea.
I wasn't planning on wearing tights and the weather didn't call for tights (it was actually warm here in Vancouver!), but when I went to go put on my shoes I realized I hadn't painted my toes. Goodness, wearing peep toes and tights is not comfortable at all!
AND, when I arrived at work this morning the receptionist was wearing this exact same skirt, black tights and the same colored top as me. Haha! So funny.I always tell her she's like my long lost sista!
Dins time. Hope you all had a wonderful Tuesday!

Monday Monday

 Dress: F21, Cardi: Dynamite, Leggings/Shoes: Ardene
 I just love this dress (toot toot). I got it at Fashion Island in Newport Beach. It's perfect for spring and summer. 
Anywho, this weekend was crazy. I feel like I didn't even have a weekend. We made the family and friends rounds to celebrate our engagement and B's belated 30th birthday. Then we had to fit some of our errands in between all that. I'm exhaust. I rarely ever say it, but I am looking forward to having a weekend with nothing planned...but Stanley Cup Hockey! Vancouver is in it! Woo hoo!
Happy Monday all!

Aaand cut!

The rest of our vacation in a very small nutshell...
This street was exactly how I pictured it and exactly how you see it in the movies. Beaut!

 This is how they displayed some of the collections.

 We had dins here on Rodeo Drive. Best stuffed salmon ever. I highly recommend it.

 My first time at Disneyland. A magical day that was for sure! I also got engaged this day too!

 Our last full day in California. We took a drive down to San Diego and had some lunch here on the patio. The waiters made it seem like fine dining and it looks that way, but the prices tell you otherwise. Tastey sammies.
And I leave wearing this. Best vacation ever!

Where to start part 1

Picture over load is about to take place. Wowzers! It's hard to choose which pictures to not put on here....

 Let the choir begin singing "ahhhhhhhhhh". What a wonderful place this was.

 An outdoor shopping mall with wonderful stores. I probably went here 4 times during my trip.

 The Wellness Spa that my finance's (boy that feels weird to say) brother and sister in law own at the Hyatt RegencyHotel in Newport Beach. Go there if you're ever in the area.

 B's 30th bday dinner at a place called Beachcomber's. It was right on the beach. Really yummy.

 Huntington Beach. Wow. This beach is gorgeous! I loved it here.

Laguna Beach. Cute little town with very very nice homes. Makes me wanna watch all the season's of Laguna Beach again to see if I recognize anything.
The next half of my trip tomorrow!

I said yes!!

I'm engaged!!! Waaahooooo! This is B in the below pictures. We're at Huntington Beach here in these pictures. I haven't uploaded pictures after we got engaged yet (happened Sunday), I was just so excited to tell you all and introduce you finally! The above picture is where he proposed. This place is called Inspiration Point. Perfect place to become engaged. Perfect perfect perfect! He's made me a better person and inspires me to be better and better each day. 

It's our last night here in Newport. I absolutely have fallen in love with this place. I'll be back to regular posting on Thursday or Friday. Brace yourselves for picture's galore!

Not tomorrow, but the next day

Cardi: Old Navy, Button Up: Thrifted, Leggings: Artizia, Shoes: Walmart, Bracelet: Gift
We are on a plane to LA, then to Newport Beach. I've been checking the Weather Network religiously to make sure I am up to date with the weather down there and I'm a little disappointed. Just barely hitting the 20's if that! So please, anyone that lives down in that area please tell me they are lying. Please please please. Thanks.
I will try and post when I am there although...well I am not going to lie, I probably won't. This vacation has been calling me for over 2 years. I'll have tons of pictures when I get back! And tomorrow, B's parents are coming over for his brithday dins so I probably won't post tomorrow either. Shucks. I guess I'll catch you on the flip side....er....in a week and a bit.
Have the greatest week eva!

Sometimes you should listen to the experts

Dress: Dynamite, Shoes: Walmart, Belt: F21
No there isn't a bug on your computer screen or a piece of fluff. That thing on my cheek I like to blame on my boyfriend. He told me to pop it. It didn't need to be popped, however, I was tired of him talking to it and not me. When he spoke to me, he would gaze into my eyes then his would wonder over to  my cheek. Listen to the experts people not your boyfriend or friend or sister or mother or you'll end up having a cheek like mine.
Ok, that's enough grossness from me.

 Top/Pants: Dynamite, Sandals: Lauren Conrad, Necklace: F21

Skirt: Mantique (A long while ago), Cardi: Old Navy, Tank: ??, Sandals: Lauren Conrad 
Jeepers. That was a long nap Blogger had. It even took my Wednesday post for a cuddle.
The top outfit is what I wore on Thursday...
So this morning I was trying to get ready for work and B was hyper and really wanted to be in "my space" while trying to get ready. While I love cuddles and hugs from him, it's a titch frustrating when I've planned everything down to the minute from the time I wake up to the time I walk out the door to work to go to work.
I stumbled onto something genius so as not to hurt his feelings by saying get off me, your going to make me late. And, I made it up myself. Here's how it went:
While doing your hair and applying your make-up ask him for his help:
Me: Hey babe, wanna help me get ready faster so I can pay more attention to you?
B: Sure! What tis it?
Me: Can you go into the drawers beside my bed and find my long black skirt?
He rushes off to find it and he's so proud of himself when he does.
Me: Now, can you go into my dresser and get my tank top with the lace at the top?
He find it and holds it up delighted with himself.
Me: Now, last one, please find my cardi with the white spots on it.
Seriously, I think the is genius. Men love to achieve things. When I walked into my room everything was laid out nicely on my bed ready for me for me to get dressed. He's so wonderfuls. Extra bonus points for him also when he helped me pick out shoes to wear. 
Goodness me, he makes me laugh.
Happy weekend all!

Jacket: Guess, Sweater vest: Gift/Costa Blanca, Top: Garage, Skirt: F21, Belt: Ardene, Tights: Dynamite, Shoes: Shoe Warehouse, Bracelet: Gift
In case you were wondering about the title it's Lion and Whiny put together 'cause that's what I am today. Only for two reasons though. One being that this weather made my hair look very lionesk today. Like a big furry puffy lion. And second, I'm whiny because this weather I dislike very much. The moisture and humidity in the air cause my hair to  become "lionesky." I'm over the rain for the next year please Mr. Weatherman. Thanks.
Next week however, I will be in sunny California! Yip-eeeeeee!

I'll let you in on a lil' secret

Blazer/Leggings: Garage, Button Up: Old Navy, Shoes: Ardene
Unless you know of this little gem already Then unfortunately it's not a secret (sad face). Zenni Optical is a wonderful online spectacles store for people who have a tendency to break (sit on them) or misplace (leave them in a dressing room) their $500.00 prescription glasses/sunglasses a week after being purchased - eh hem - me. These prescription sunglasses cost me $30 buckaroos and that includes shipping - to Canada. Not the greatest picture of these beauts, but you get the idea. So, if you're like me, I say check this site out. For reals.
Happy Tuesday!

Kinda boring

Dress/Legging: Garage, Cardi: Old Navy, Shoes: Walmart
This weekend sure went by fast! I forgot how fun Wii Bowling is. Jeepers, my shoulder sure is sore!
For mother's day we took B's mama and dad out for brunch at the University Golf club near the University of BC. If you're ever golfing or looking to have a nice breakfast, lunch or dinner, I recommend it! 
I hope you all spoiled your mama's!
It's game time so peace out!
