Lindsay's Getting Marriedddd!

I met Lindsay about a year after we moved to Auburn Bay in Calgary and have been GREAT friends since we hit it off over some vino one night- not just any vino- Ernest Gallo white zinfandel to be exact! It's our FAVORITE and we always traipse from door to door with a bottle in hand:
EXHIBIT A! Two handed Gallo pour!
Lindsay is getting married on June 4th this year and I am SO honored to be her bridesmaid!!! I am one of four and we are super excited for her wedding which is going to be at the Calgary Zoo... 
Bridal Party! Cara, Carrie, Lindsay and I... Just missing the maid of honor!
This is an awful photo and doesn't do the dress justice.. We ended up getting them at Dynamite of all places??! $29.99 regular price and we all LOVE these dresses! They can be strapless or not and have POCKETS! They also have a very faint snakeskin pattern and are going to look awesome.
How cute are these shose?! These are the shoes we are going to get from Spring.. Only $49.99 and shipping is FREE! Super pumped about these "fluffy" satin numbers :D
Their colors are hot pink and black!!! HAWT
Your going to make such a beautiful bride!!!!!

Then off to Amsterdam!
Paris to see one of my besties- AMAN!
Last stop- ITALY! My dream vacation destination... SO EXCITED! It is truly one of my biggest dreams to visit Europe and I am lucky enough to be traveling with my husband James too! I earned the trip to Prague through Pampered Chef and we are extending for an extra few weeks.
SPRING!!! Going outside without a jacket, patio dining, tulips, NO SNOW GODDAMN IT
May long camping with our awesome group of friends <3
May long camping x 150
WICKED COMING TO CALGARY! My ultimate dream to see this play... Supposed to be 'pre-Wizard of Oz'... The untold story of the witches of Oz. Coming to Calgary June 26th - end of July
Williams Lake Stampede... One of the best events of the year. Williams Lake, BC is my husband's hometown and we try to go back as much as possible for the stampede event during Canada Day long weekend... It is the second biggest stampede next to Calgary and these amazing people are what make this event a BLAST! Notice my respectable hubby on the far right... ;) hehehehe
Random patio parties at the fun houseeee!
CAMPING WITH JAMES! I'm going to try to take the entire summer off of Pampered Chef to spend it with James since he is having a rare summer off.. can't wait.
HIKING! We're hopefully joining a hiking group this year :D

Can't wait for bikini's and sunny beach days....

 Siiiiigh... It is STILL winter here even though the first day of spring has come and gone.. March is supposed to "come in like a lion and leave like a lamb" but it appears this month is going to come in and go out with a bang... A snowy, cold, and BITTER BANG! ARGH! So to cheer myself up I thought I would go bikini cruising on Victoria Secret's site.... I have SO many bathing suits and they are one of my favorite things to shop for Here are some of my favs:
My girlfriend just bought these bottoms but they don't fit so she gifted them to me!!! They are quite cheeky but I am pumped to wear them...
I prefer this "push up" halter by far... Might have to invest! Only $24! Really into the cheetah pattern
I LOVE FRILLS on bikinis! Especially little skirt bikinis... PFFT of course EVERY bikini is going to look fab on bodies like these
SHINY!!!! Love this rhinestone bando top that would be great for no tanlines.
Even shinier! I LOVE SEQUINS! And her body... BITCH
This may be one of Victoria Secret's most popular tops of all time... I've seen this on a ton of friends and celebs! Love the star in the top and bottoms- would make a cute tan line too.
LOVE the hearts... comes in a variety of colors too!
Frills.. and shiny! and ring!
Oh la la!!! Super sexy.. Can you say BIKINI WAX?!
I love unique pieces on suits like this star :)
The rouching would be really flattering... This looks vintage to me.. Sometimes for a one piece you need to be even more in shape because it will show any lump or bump.
Not good for the tan lines but I love this flower pattern and unique ties!
Um wow... HOW HOT IT THIS?! Look at the back below
Here's me in Cabo San Lucas in my monokini.. Picked this up at Winners for only $39 and it's surprisingly comfortable.. Not to play water polo in obviously but I think it's a cool statement!!!! Do you like monokinis? I do minus the tan lines...
EEEEK maybe Kesha should have look on Victoria Secret's website ?!?!?!

New outfit!!!

I was accompanying one of my girlfriends shopping for a dress and just happened to find this super cute outfit at Tristan!!! Tristan has a new line out called "MOMENTUM" which I initially assumed was a maternity line but instead it is just a more "economically priced" line... I've always found Tristan to be quite reasonable and their sales are normally really good so I was happy to see an even cheaper option! I never buy anything regular price but I didn't even hesitate at these prices! Here it is!:
The tunic top was only $39.99 and navy leggings with silver buttons were only $12.50 REGULAR PRICE!!!!
I love leggings paired with sky-high platforms. I wear my Guess nude pumps the most. I think a long necklace like this Lia Sophia one looks great with a tunic top
Bum shot! This is what your hair looks like when you have a shower and then sleep on it... OoOps!
Here's some other really cute options for SUPER reasonable by Momentum at Tristan.. They are characterized by their green tag so keep your eyes peeled ;)
