Spring Must Have: Kimono

Although it may not seem like it here in Canada, it has officially been spring for a little over a week. Fortunately, the weather is supposed to warm up this the week (fingers crossed). That means it's time to put away those heavy winter coats and toss on a kimono. Kimono's are my favourite spring trend right now - not only are they super light for spring, but you are bound to be the best dressed gal at the music festival this summer.

It's About Time!

I'm a huge Society6 stalker. If I want to spruce up my apartment, Society6 is the first place I  check. They don't just sell prints. Oh no, this site sells tote bags, tank tops, phone cases, and now CLOCKS. You can now have your favourite prints on a clock. I'm so used to checking the time on my phone that I probably forget how to read a traditional clock, but I still think they add a lot of character to any room. Here are a few of my favourite clocks on Society6:

Pineapple Clock: I hate the taste of pineapples, but I have to admit they are nice on the eyes. 

Mountains Through The Trees Clock: My mountain heart screams nostalgia when I look at this clock.


Sky Mandala Clock: This is such a pretty pattern! 

Bull Clock: Great for any country lover's home. 


These are just a few of my favourites, but I could show you hundreds of amazing clocks. Go check out more here!

Feeling Foxy Friday: Joules Review


I don't know how the weather is on your end, but here in Canada it is c o l d. But just because it's cold doesn't mean I have to ditch the warm coloursI am channeling my inner autumn, since I miss that weather oh-so-much. 

What I'm wearing: Boots c/o Joules USA, Dress Urban Planet, Coat (old) H&M, Scarf/Hat/Mits Local boutiques, Tights Value Village 

I'm feeling foxy today with my fox dress and these amazing Fox Rain Boots from Joules.  It's hard to find a good pair of waterproof winter boots, and rain boots take on even the deadliest of blizzards. The winters where I am are also extremely wet. There is actually a puddle so large on my campus right now, we call it Lake McMaster. 


It's also difficult to find a pair of rain boots that aren't hard to walk in, fit right on the calf, and are comfortable. I am telling you that these Joules Rainboots are made in heaven, it feels like I'm walking on a cloud. They are comfortable, stylish, affordable and make me want to go jump in as many puddles (or snow forts) as possible. If you don't feel like channeling your inner Foxy Cleopatra, their boots come in many different styles and patterns. Some of the other pairs I may have to snatch up are: thesethese, and these



Going to find some puddles to jump in now!

Weekly Roundup

You know what the best feeling in the world is? The feeling when you have been trying to crack your finger for what seems like eons (when really it's been thirty seconds) and it finally cracks. Anyways, happy Sunday everybody! I hope your 2014 has been going well. I've spent the first five days of 2014 and last five days of my holidays before school starts by laying in bed in my comfy Christmas pajamas playing The Sims over and over again. Apparently I would rather clean my Sims apartment rather than my own, oh well. Here is this week's roundup!

TO EAT
The holidays shouldn't be your only excuse to eat delicious food. Try these Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Bites and start your New Year's resolution next week (or next year.. who needs diets, really?) 

TO WEAR
It's not like I need anymore excuses to shop, but this Reverse Split Sweater from Nasty Gal is too cute to resist. Watch out Kelly Kapowski 

TO LISTEN

I saw the Beyonce's Mrs Carter Tour in Toronto a few weeks ago, and I can't even comment on the fabulousness (is that a word?) on her performance. I know the album was released a few weeks ago and people may be thinking "this is old news" but whoever says that deserves a punch in the gut. Since the release, I have watched this music video an average five times a day. It's my favourite video from the album, what's yours?

TO DECORATE

TO SEE
I'm not sure what the weather is like in Italy right now but if it looks anything like this, take me there now. Secluded Beach, Furore, Amalfi, Italy

TO CREATE
Now that I have my own Polaroid camera, this looks like a project I would love to do.

Oh Summer Candy Yearly Round Up

2013 has to be the most rewarding year of my entire life. Although this year brought me some downs including the death of my Grandmother and a difficult break up, it has also brought me many, many ups. I think this was the year I finally found myself, as cliche as that sounds. I know the person I want to be and I love the person I have become. My grades have gone up drastically, I landed an internship, a part-time job, had the first healthy relationship in my life, grew closer with some of the best friends I could ask for, lived on my own, travelled, forgiven those who have hurt me, apologized to those I have hurt, discovered and met amazing bands, and of course my biggest accomplishment: this blog. I never thought that I would receive so much support from this blog as I have. From my friends and family and my online network of friends, this blog has grown to exactly what I want it to be. Thank you for reading and commenting and supporting. Here is a collection of the top ten posts of 2013. Enjoy and I can't wait for what the new year brings to Oh Summer Candy.










Happy New Years!
