the answer to this heat wave...

outfit: f21 top, urban behaviour shorts, divi sandals, wetseal necklace
aaaaahhh... it feels like a sauna out there! the weather network was just reporting that this was been the warmest recorded temperature here since the 1940s!! that's a whopping 39 degrees celsius (102 fahrenheit).. goodness me!

ever since the temperature rose up, i've been challenging myself to wear anything but black. so i decided to pull out some pastel pieces and come up with this outfit for a day at the ice cream store! also, i realized that i have gone about 2 shades darker in terms of my skintone. i actually had to combine my joe fresh concealer with a darker elf one just so it can blend well on my face.

today was a great day to head out and get some ice cream. cold stone creamery opened a franchise store attached to a tim hortons and since i've tried the marble slab one, i wanted to see how this one compares to it. so i decided to pay a visit!

if you're not familiar with them, the whole concept of their ice cream is that they try to mix the toppings of your ice cream on the spot on a frozen granite stone, making sure that you get fresh ingredients.

to be honest, i was expecting a bit more from cold stone creamery. i ended up getting something similar to the one i got from marble slab so i can really make a good comparison. i feel like the ingredients weren't as well mixed as the one i got from marble slab. tsk tsk.. not that the ice cream didn't taste good, but i feel like the toppings weren't distributed evenly.

cookie doughn't you want some!

but, you know what.. i'll still go back there! i still have to try the other flavors! the tim hortons that it's attached to is open 24 hours and that means the cold stone creamery is too! ice cream 24/7? sounds good to me! :D
