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

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.

and finally, my last pick is breakfast, my favourite meal of the day! i love starting my day off right with a nutritious meal, and here are some of my favourites!

my spring mood board

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

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!

Screen Shot 2018-04-06 at 6.55.28 PM

This beach is on the island of Koh Phangan, Thailand. The water was so clear and beautiful, and it was so so so warm!

Screen Shot 2018-04-06 at 6.55.50 PM

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!

Screen Shot 2018-04-07 at 9.12.06 AMPeonies are probably my favourite flower because they smell so good and are gorgeous to look at! The petals are just so pretty! Did you know that they come in every colour but blue?

Screen Shot 2018-04-07 at 9.12.14 AM

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!


Screen Shot 2018-04-07 at 9.12.23 AM

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!Screen Shot 2018-04-07 at 9.11.54 AM

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.

Screen Shot 2018-04-07 at 9.12.31 AM

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!

Screen Shot 2018-04-03 at 6.37.51 PMScreen Shot 2018-04-03 at 6.38.08 PMHello!

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
