Summer 2012 Fashion Wishlist

It's been getting warmer here and I'm thinking I need new summer clothes. After all, I really only own 1 pair of shorts and 1 bathing suit, which means I look pretty much the same during the whole summer. I am also going on a backpacking trip to South East Asia at the end of June. I intend on visiting Thailand a second time, and Cambodia as well as Vietnam for the first time. It's very hot out there, so I need more short/thanks/tees to bring with me.

Lately, I have also been addicted to Pinterest add me if you are on there too! Right now the website is upon invite, so if you want to I can also send you an invite for it! Anyway, I have pinned some of the clothes I want for this summer on there and I thought I would share part of my Fashion Wishlist board on here!

I am not necessarily looking for each exact piece, it's more for inspiration on types of pieces I am looking for.
Basically I want :

- Pale stripped shorts
- Pink/Coral short
- Beige shorts
- Jeans Skirt
- Flowy camis
- Loose beachy tops
- Lots of coral/peach/beige/pink/purple/blue colors

Summer 2012 : a summer trimester and backpacking trip

Hey everyone! Long time no post on here! Sorry about that :(

I thought I would update a little on my first year of university and how it's going since I haven't for a while and tell you about my plans for summer 2012.

I'm currently halfway through my first summer trimester ever (it's mandatory in my program, I'm not taking classes to speed up the process or anything). I have to say, this year has been very rewarding, but very hard. I've never had to work this hard in my life and that's something. It's not like I never studied before either. I used to study quite a lot for each exam back in cegep. But this is something completly different. Each class has an incredible amount of theory, which I need to integrate as quickly and as efficiently as possible. Anyway, I'm not complaining, because the program is very interesting, but it's been though so far! The summer trimester is only making it worse, since it's getting nice and warm out and I have to study and to get ready for my second internship next week and all I want is to enjoy the nice weather out.

So that's pretty much what I have been up to lately. Although this trimester is quite a bit lighter in content than other trimesters, it's still a drag since I haven't had any time off between the winter trimester and the summer one. It's been one long, never ending semester and I'm quite exhausted at this point. At least my grades are ok and I feel like I'm learning loads! Anyway, hopefully I'll be able to resume posting more regularly soon, since school will finish for me on the third week of june!

I will most likely post quite a bit about my next backpacking trip to asia then also. My boyfriend and I will be leaving for most of the summer for Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia and I cannot wait :D There is also a good friend from university who will be joining us for the first couple of weeks which should be a lot of fun. Anyway, that's pretty much all that's been going on in recent weeks :) Thank you all for still reading me and I'll be back soon with more exciting post.

I think summer 2012 will be something to remember for a long time :) What are your plans for this summer? Tell me in the comments!

Love you all <3

Latest Craft : Friendship bracelets

So I started making these again recently. It reminds me of my childhood and I love the stacked look for summer! It kinda reminds me of the beach and feels super laid back to me, love it! <3

I found this amazing website with a million patterns on it, from fairly simple ones, to crazy, pokeball bracelets! I can't wait to get better and try harder patterns :) So far, I made 7 in three days, I can't stop making them!


My mom's banana bread recipe

Ingredients :

1¾ cups of all purpose flour
½ cup of granulated white sugar
½ cup of brown sugar
½ cup of butter (or margarine)
4 tbsp of milk
1¾ tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of baking soda
1 tsp of vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 mashed bananas

How to do it :

- First preheat the oven at 350 F

- In a bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the eggs, brown sugar and granulated white sugar until you get a very creamy consistensy.

- Add the butter, milk, vanilla and bananas and beat until incorporated.

- Grease a square pan and dust it with a mix of white sugar and flower (1 tbsp of each) to allow it to rise evenly

- Bake for 35 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center of the cake comes off clean with no wet batter on it. It may take longer if you use a smaller pan since the cake will be more thick.

Note : Mine took much longer (~55 minutes) because I used a small pan with high side.
