Friday, July 2

three birds, one stone..

so here's the deal. today was packed with numerous activities so i want to forewarn you of the length of this post. i hope you don't mind me talking about a number of things today..

so this is my "im in a hurry to write all of these things in one blog post" face
first off, it is/was food tripping thursdays (depending on when you're able to read this)! today my family and i celebrate my graduation and my brother's bday. we invited a number of relatives and friends to come at buffet square for the double event. as part of food tripping thursdays, i'd like to share some food shots i took of the dishes we indulged in for lunch!

hungry yet?
next on the list? after eating at the buffet, i spent the afternoon roaming around the city. it was my first time to join in the crowd downtown since every canada day(for the past 4 years) was spent at the park with family and relatives.

first stop was osborne village where they closed down the street for some major partying. the younger, wilder and more experimental crowd can be seen here and the boutiques were having a no-tax event and some good deals along the street.

second stop was the forks market where they had the whole space filled with family friendly activities and more partying. as part of food tripping thursdays still, let me share with you photos of what we had after spending hours walking around the market.

poutine with cajun powder!
lastly, before i go, here's the outfit i had for today. during the buffet lunch, i had the striped top on since it was indoors and we were in an air-conditioned environment. the rest of the day, i decided to change into something cooler because the heat today was just unbearable. it was like the whole city was an oven toaster, seriously..

outfit: aritzia striped top, old navy top, joe fresh shorts, keds sneakers, forever 21 purse

this hat was a lifesaver!

special shoutout to Arianne for the camera used for all the photos in this post. thank you lots!!!
