It's the End (of June, that is)

Well, half the year is now gone and I have done both so much and so little.
The day after tomorrow it's Canada day! That means it's been a year since I moved to Quebec, wow, where has the time gone? My family and I are going to be having a small get together to celebrate. I will (obviously) be baking a cake and will be on decorating duty. Is there anything special you do for Canada day?

This week I did my final Francisation exam and finished my level 4 French! There are 8 government French levels and so I am half-way there. That's right your girl knows how to speak enough French to get a job, well enough to have a conversation with others and still be understood. Fortunately (or unfortunately)  I won't' be going back as I will be starting university this coming September. Since it's all in English and downtown Montreal is mostly English, I won't' have to use too much French.

6 (Awesome) Reasons I LOVE sewing

Hey, hey, hey!
This past week as I was thinking a thought passed through my head: Why do I love sewing? How did this come to be? And after thinking long and hard about it I wrote a list and it essentially helped write this post.
I have been sewing since I was 14, but I have never been able to pinpoint why sewing has been a big part of my life. When I was a child my mom used to sew my clothes for me and our family but when she stopped (it got expensive) I never thought twice about it. But as I got older I become more interested but soon I came to love it. This is a post of 6 reasons why LOVE sewing ✂ and why you could too.

Crayola Makeup | Guest post by The Cami Way


*This is a repost of the post I wrote on The Cami Way, on June 5th. This is a guest post in a way.

Hello!
Wow, it's been quite a week! On Thursday and Friday, the temperature here was between 29℃-34℃, it was sweltering and, with the humidity, suffocating. Saturday and Sunday it went down but it was bearable and delightful, but on Monday it was 10℃ (!!!) and was raining. I honestly cannot understand the weather here in QC.
In other news, I was scrolling through my feed when I saw something very interesting that I had to read it twice: Crayola has a makeup line. You read that right Crayola, the arts & craft company, came out with a line of makeup that is in the shape of (guess what): crayons.

It's June!

We are halfway through the year, can you believe that? It feels like yesterday that I started this blog. Thank you for being with me on this journey. This past weekend I have finished sewing something that been on my to-do list for the last 6 months (!!).

I had a dress I got about 1 1/2 years ago but never got to wear it because it was way, way too long.
