Mark the date!

Swedish retail giant H&M will open its first Ottawa store at Bayshore shopping centre on October 17th (Yep,just a few weeks away). Although I'm a bit sad along with many downtown shoppers that H&M didn't come to Rideau Centre for their first Ottawa store location, however, the 22,120-square-foot space will draw majority of Ottawa teens and fashionistas to the west-end.

If you are a lover of fast fashion or looking for some affordable fashion pieces, it's the perfect time to make room in your closet!!!

I picked a few hot items from my 2-page long wishlist and show you here. 

Top left: Chiffon Tunic $59.95
Top right: Sweatpants $39.95
Bottom left: Slack $29.95
Boston right: Draped dress $34.95
And much more..... 

*H&M Ottawa will open its door at noon on October 17th. First 500 people in line on opening day could save up to $300!

Make your move

This is a late post that has been postponed for almost a month.
I had all 4 wisdom teeth pulled out at the end of August and suddenly I had severe allegic reactions to the antibiotics. My face and eyes are super swollen, skin rash all over my body. I had to stay at home more than 10 days, even now I still have some minor skin problems from the allegies.
When I was in ER, doctor asked me if I ever had any allegic reations to antibiotics before. No - not since I was a kid.
Things changed, without being noticed. 
I want to change things, not things change me. 
I want to change life, not life changes me. 

"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek."

Early sunsets

I should stop pretending that I don't wear trousers. In fact, I wear trousers at least 1/3 time as I wear dresses/shorts this summer. Harem and crop pants are my top options in summer.

Speaking of summer time, this summer is the best so far since I moved here. I'm a bit sad to notice early sunsets which means my summer is wrapping up. 

Like what I like the most from " Early Sunsets Over Monroeville",

Late dawns and early sunsets
Just like my favorite scenes
Then holding hands and life was perfect
Just like up on the screen
And the whole time while always giving
Counting your face among the living

Hope you all enjoy your summer!
