hello lovelies! i hope you all are having a great sunday. i’m sorry that i haven’t posted in a while, my summer has been full of activities and i haven’t managed to blog as frequently as i originally hoped. however i have some exciting posts planned!! anyways, today i am collaborating with one of my favourite bloggers frankie over at frankiedotb. i love her blog so so so much! the design is beautiful, her photos are so lovely, and her posts are so thoughtful and original! she blogs about fashion, food, design & so much more! go check out her blog here!
anyways, we thought we would share four things that we are loving right now, here are mine!
m a g a z i n e s
i have recently been really into magazines, my favourites being frankie and uppercase. here are a few of my favourite pages from each.
a few days ago i picked up my first frankie magazine, and fell in love! the design is so amazing, the illustration is gorgeous, and the articles are so great, i just love it! for the longest time i thought that you couldn’t purchase them in canada, and was so jealous of all my friends in australia, england, america and new zealand that could read them. then i went to london drugs (a a little grocery store in canada ) and found one! i was so happy.
uppercase is full of beautiful illistrations, creative crafts, gorgeous products, and articles mainly focused on art & design. it has so many unique craft ideas and i feel so inspired when i read it! i really love the water colours ( featured in the third picture ) and am planning to try and paint some similar to them!!

my second pick is my july playlist. i am in love with each and every song found on this playlist. here are a few favourites…
coffee by beabadoobee – such a beautiful song, the lyrics are so thoughtful and the song is really well constructed. i love this artist so much, her songs are so creative!
b.o.m.d. by clairo – this song is so clever and absolutely gorgeous, i love any song by clairo
afraid by mimi – i have been watching mimi on yt for quite a while now and i was so happy when she started writing music! i love her voice, its so beautiful
o u t f i t
my next favourite is this outfit, its super casual, but still cute. my top is from brandy melville, and its amazing. i’ve worn it so many times and i just love it so much! you can’t really tell from the photos, but it has pretty little white flower detailing all over it. i thrifted these shorts. they were only $2! originally they were mom jeans, but i cut them and made them into shorts. i love the wash of these. and finally, my shoes are from converse. they are plain white & really comfortable.
* thanks raf for helping me out with this photo haha

Hello! I hope you all had an amazing week! The summer is approaching, only a week to go for me!
I have a ton of exams this week, so I’ll be quite busy. I’ll make some room for blogging though! Once school ends, I’ll have a bunch of free time to blog! Whoop whoop!
I have four finals this week, and guess what I have been doing instead of studying for exams? Making mood boards 🙂
I spent a ton of time looking for beautiful images on pinterest. I tried to stick to a pinkish / brown theme and aimed to incorporate drawings and quotes! I love how it turned out. I put my mood board over top of my lovely chair from ikea. I posted a room tour, which you can read if you would like to see my entire bedroom!
Anyways, as always, I hope you enjoy

Hello! Today I am collaborating with one of my favourite bloggers, Raf from rafstheticallypleasing. She posts about fashion, beauty, lifestyle and more! Ever since I discovered her blog, I have been obsessed! It is so gorgeous and I love all her posts, I definitely recommend giving it a read! We thought we would share some of our favourite places we have been, I have posted a similar post to this, you can check it out here.
I took this photo at Loch Ard Gorge, a spot along the Great Ocean Road in Australia. The view was so breath taking and the water looked gorgeous! I visited Australia when I was 13, and I have been dying to go back ever since! The people and so friendly, the food is great, and of course the scenery is amazing!
Kuang Si Waterfalls near Luang Prabang are gorgeous and a must see if you ever visit Laos! The falls are layered, so you can go swimming and have your own private pool! Just warning you, theres little fish that will nip and at feet, a little scary I know!
The stunning temple, Angkor Wat in Cambodia. We arrived for the sun rise and it was so beautiful. Inside Angkor Wat, are many chambers featuring intricate designs on the walls.
In this photo, you can see the rice fields. I took this photo just outside of Ninh Binh, Vietnam. My family and I slept in a grass hut looking over a lake. I loved visiting Vietnam, the people were so friendly and nice, the food was AMAZING, and scenery was stunning!
This is an image of the black sand beach in Iceland. The sand was so dark, and the beach was so gorgeous! This is a must see in Iceland, go early so you don’t catch the crowds! The water was quite cold though, so don’t go swimming!
This beach is on the island of Koh Phangan, Thailand. The water was so clear and beautiful, and it was so so so warm!
We took a dragon boat (not pictured in the image) to cruise through Bai Tu Long Bay, Vietnam! We did many activities such as kayaking, swimming, island visiting, and we visitied an oyster farm. These are the boats that took us to the oyster farm.
Thank you so much for reading! And thank you Raf for collaborating with me! Remember to go check out her blog!

Hello! Today I am collaborating with Ella from ahappilyellaafter! She is one of my favourite bloggers for many reason – her content is amazing, her graphics are GORGEOUS, and her blog is so aesthetically pleasing! She blogs about food, fashion, life & more, I definitely recommend check her blog out! We thought we would share our favourite flowers, because its spring!! Anyways, lets get onto the post 🙂
btw I tried to draw the flowers, so you can enjoy my horrible attempts!
This flower is just so gorgeous! Anemones don’t really have a scent, but they are quite pretty to look at! I love how delicate and beautiful they look!
Of course I had to include sunflowers on this list! I love love love the colour of the petal, oh and of course eating sunflower seeds! They can grow up to twelve feet!
Tulips are the perfect spring flower, they are just so gorgeous! They come in many different colours and they look so pretty and dainty! Did you know that you can actually eat the petals? Ahah I haven’t tried it though.
Of course roses made the list! They are so stunning and smell amazing! They come in so many colours, from red to white. I think pink is my favourite though!
Thank you for reading and thanks Ella for collaborating with me! Remember to check out her blog!

I just got back from Vancouver, I had a blast! My family and I had so much fun, shopping, eating, sightseeing, & more! I bought a ton of clothing, stay posted for a spring look book 💐🍑🌱
I went to many shops including, brandy melville, urban outfitters, aesop, and lots of little boutiques. I purchased a whole new wardrobe, and wasted all my money…
I also ate the best food! Açai bowls, falafels, smoothies, gelato & more. It was all so delicious!
We went to the Vancouver art gallery, to granville island, and walked through downtown.
While I was in Vancouver, I took a ton of photos! The ones above are the ones that made the cut!
Times flies when you are having fun, before I knew it, the weekend had past, along with spring break. I had my first day of term three today, I’m not too excited for the rest of it… I have a feeling that I will be quite busy will school work, but I will try to fit in some creative time!
Hope you enjoyed xx Jasper
a room tour is by far my most requested post, so i decided to clean my room and share some photos! i spend most of my time in my room, so i like to keep it organized and pretty looking. we moved into this house almost two years ago, and after hours of rearranging, designing, and planning, i am finally happy with how it looks. i hope you enjoy xx
this is where i sleep, read, and watch netflix! i wanted it to be quite minimalistic, with a pop of colour. my bed is from ikea along with the light, and the string lights are from vietnam. i have a pretty palm leave and a small box resting on my nightstand, a block of wood.
i absolutely love this clothing rack! my dad and i made it a couple months ago based on a design we found online by chloe larkin. it is so cute and really easy to make, it only took us half an hour. on my clothing rack, i have my favourite clothing items, the rest are in my closet. i also have my converse and my kanken.
this is where i do my homework, write blogposts and do art! i don’t know if i enjoy the appearance of my desk right now, it is quite messy and unorganized. anyways, my desk is from ikea, same with the drawers. on my desk is a bunch of art supplies like pencils, paint brushes, and sketchbooks.
this is where i get ready in the morning! the larger mirror is from ikea (surprise surprise!) in this area, i have a bamboo chute, a magnifying mirror, and a bunch of my favourite skincare and beauty products. i also have a cute jewellery dish. in the drawers below, i have all my makeup products, perfumes, and skincare products.
i quite like this corner of my room! i have two mood boards, a travel one with my scratch map and the other one features a bunch of photos that i found on pinterest! i also have a candle sitting on top of a couple of favourite books and a journal. my chair is from ikea (again!) and the pillow is from indigo.
here are some other parts of my room. the first image is of my mirror and a vintage stool with a pretty plant! you can also see my polaroid wall. the second image shows a book shelf holding some of my favourite novels and a jewelry stand thing. this area also has my two favourite beauty products and a plant!
thank you for reading! i hope you enjoyed xx
