visiting china town


Hello! Spring break has officially started and I am loving it! Today, my friend and I went out for brunch and we walked around downtown and chinatown. It was a bit of a gloomy Tuesday since it was raining, but we had fun and took many many photos. I’m also learning Mandarin at school, so I decided to incorporate it into my post!

First we went to Wanna Waffle, where I had the best Belgium waffle ever! It made me miss the waffles I had while travelling in Belgium. It had whipped cream and a bunch of delicious berries!

After, we popped into a couple of lovely stores, I didn’t end up buying anything. We then walked around the city, admiring the beautiful buildings!

Then we went to Chinatown, which was lovely! We walked through several different alleys with beautiful lights!

Thank you for reading!

My friend and I explored downtown, visiting little shops, streets, and alleys.We found this colourful street with tons of cute stores hidden away.


We climbed to the top of an arcade and saw this amazing view! Of course we had to take a photo!


While I was looking out over the water, my friend snapped this photo of me. The view was really pretty!


I edited all of these photos using the filter HB2 on vsco. I really recommend it, because it adds a bit of depth to the photos (if that makes sense haha)


Thank you for reading! I hope you enjoyed xx Jasper



Hello lovelies, sorry that i didn’t post yesterday, I was really busy. I have several posts planned out for next week, so enjoy!

Today my family and I went exploring. We went to a local gem, known as Sooke Potholes. We drove up a windy road and tried to find a place to park, it was a lot easier said than done. Once we finally found a parking spot, we hiked a ways up the road, along a river full of potholes. We swam and jumped into the pools, despite the temperature of the water. It was really cold. Here are some images


Here is a picture of the river. The water was super cold!


I was climbing the rocks with my sister.


In this picture, my family and I are getting into the freezing water.


Some parts of the river were twenty feet deep. The water was really clear, so you could see rocks and fish below.


There were small caverns that you could swim into.


I hope you enjoyed this little post!

this weeks favourites

Screen Shot 2017-07-18 at 7.03.28 PM.png

Hello lovelies! Since you all (hopefully) enjoyed last weeks favourites post, I decided to post another!

If you guys would like to see more of these blog posts, leave a comment down below 🙂




First up is my ” wreck this journal” for Indigo. It cost $20.99 CAD. For those that don’t know what a wreck this journal is, it is a book with instructions on each page on how to destroy it. I decided instead of wrecking it, to make it more of an art journal. I love this book so much and I definitely recommend it.



Next is my polaroid camera. I have the Instax Mini 8, in the colour of “baby blue” It cost $100 CAD and the images turn out great. The film is relatively expensive, over $1 an photo, but the quality makes up for it. (btw I drew on the polaroid with sharpie)

This highlighter was featured in my “whats in my travel makeup bag” post. This is one of my favourite highlighters I have ever had. It is called baked highlighter by e.l.f. in the shade of moonlight pearls. I absolutely love this amount of shine that it contains. If that makes sense ahaha.

Next up are my Adidas Superstars featured in my summer ootd blogpost. They are really nice and I like that you can dress them up or down.  They are also super comfortable and they are simple, so they can go with anything.



I purchased this book light at Indigo, and I absolutely love it. It says “not all those who wander are lost” and it has a clip so you can attach it to your favourite book or use it as a bookmark. I think it cost $12.99, but I’m not 100% sure.


Those are this weeks favourites!

Thank you so much for reading.

whats in my travel makeup bag

Screen Shot 2017-07-18 at 6.53.50 PM.png

Hello lovelies! Since I am on holidays, I decided to share whats in my travel makeup bag. These are my go to makeup items, and most can be purchased at your local drugstore.


This is my travel makeup bag. It is a pretty magenta colour and is very plain and simple. I’m pretty sure I purchased it at Urban Outfitters a couple years ago, but I’m not 100% certain. I am probably going to buy another one soon, because this one is pretty old.


The first item is the Fit Me Powder by Maybelline New York. I use this on a daily basis and I love it so much! I use it to set, and it leaves your skin looking matte and even. It costs $9.99 CAD, which is a great deal.


The next thing is the by e.l.f.. It comes with a pink blush (left side) and contour/bronzer (right side) They are both of great quality and I really recommend e.l.f. products as they are very cheap. It cost $4 CAD.


I use this e.l.f. concealer on a regular basis. It provides full coverage and is of great quality. It cost $3 CAD and I purchased it in the shade “ivory”


The next item is the baked highlighter by e.l.f. in the shade of moonlight pearls. This is such a great highlighter, but I ended up using a q-tip to apply it because I forgot my brush. Haha.


I have several eyeshadow palettes, but this one is by far my favourite. It is the Tartelette Tease Clay Palette (REVIEW)  I bought this palette for $30 CAD at Sephora and I absolutely adore it!


Next, is the Collossal Volume Express Mascara by Maybelline New York. This is my favourite mascara and it works so well. It makes your eyelashes look so much longer! It cost $11.99 CAD.


I use this beauty blender. It is plain black and works really well! It is pretty simple and there is not much to say about it.


I brought these three makeup brushes. The first one (far left) is for my brows, the middle one is contour and blush, and the last one is also for my brows.


The final item is this eyelash curler. I bought it from sephora and it is silver.


Thank you so much for reading! I hope you enjoyed!

p.s. I forget to take a cover image, so I decided on that one haha.

Last night I stayed up late, perched on my window sill, watching lightning light up the sky. It’s funny how something so small and simple can make me so happy. The low rumble of the thunder was calming, almost reassuring. I sat there, gazing up at the sky, waiting for a bolt of lightning to strike the earth. I love how the lightning is small, yet so powerful as it lights up the night sky. When I was in Italy, there was a huge thunderstorm. Believe whatever you want, but I swear there was at least one bolt of lightning every three seconds. I watched the storm with my family from the balcony of our hotel. I remember how the lightning lit up the sky and how we counted how many bolts we could see at once. Since our hotel was on a mountain, we could see the whole entire sky. It was so amazing and for me, one of the most memorable moments of the trip. That is when I first became fascinated with storms. Over the year, I have spent hours watching them.

Sorry that this was a shorter blog post. Hope you enjoyed!

Thanks for reading

OOTD | summer


Hello lovelies! Today I am going to be sharing my summer outfit with you guys. I am so happy that it is finally summer, because it is another excuse to go shopping haha. I recently went shopping and decided to bring you guys and outfit of the day. Enjoy!

I decided to go for a basic look, so I paired a striped tank top with a pair of high waisted denim shorts. I added my Adidas Superstar’s and I think that it made the look! You can easily pair this outfit with a cute ball cap or sunglasses for accessories.


I bought this shirt at Garage and I absolutely LOVE it! It has a high neck, which I think is super cute. This shirt cost $16.95 CAD, and I think that it is worth it! I really like how the back is a straight cut.


I purchased these denim shorts called the “Cool Blue Premium Retro High Waist Short” for $42.95 CAD. I like them because they are semi distressed and because they are high waisted.
