Five on Friday - July 8, 2016

Happy Friday - hope everyone has had a great week! 


I felt really great this week when another blogger, Wendy from Fashionable Heart, named See The World in PINK as her blog of the month for July! That is the sweetest thing ever - it is so sweet that she takes her time to recognize other bloggers! This made my day!


Ahhhh, the regular Calgary Summer time - it is Stampede Week! This means a ton of free pancake breakfasts and a very busy city! I usually Stampede once a year - we go on all the rides, and eat a lot of junk food! This year will be no different and I am looking forward to it! 

Make sure to follow me on Instagram here to catch my Stampede posts! 


How did I miss that BFG started last weekend?! This book is one of my favourite Roald Dahl books and I am making my son re-read it with me and then we are going to see this! So excited! 


Ugh... you guys know I'm terrible at resisting limited edition products! Were you part of the craziness that was the Colourpop Churro release at the end of last week? This is a tie-dye mixture of 3 highlighters and it was released in very limited quantities - it sold out in 1 minute (luckily I got one). And then over the weekend they announced that they were releasing a few more and it sold out again in a couple of hours! 

So I certainly didn't need to make this order, but I thought this was really cute! 


Is is a little crazy that I'm already planning my garden for next year?

This year we didn't go crazy in our flower garden as we were waiting to see how everything would do back there and what would grow back. Needless to say, it is not the prettiest flower bed yet, but I know these things take some time! 

Next year though, I really want to focus on getting come beautiful perennials planted so they will grow back every year! Have you heard of - they deliver bulbs in the Fall and Spring when they should be planted in your garden! These are a few I ordered to plant in the Fall so they grow next year! I'm very excited! (I'm also eyeballing a ton more - so I need to relax a little!)

I hope you all have a great weekend! 


  1. Great Five things!! I really want to see the BFG too! The pictures of the flowers are gorgeous! x

  2. Awww, well thank you for doing the same on this post! <3 So jealous of you getting to go to the Stampede, I was living vicariously through your pictures. :) I really need to try ColourPop. That looks gorgeous. Can't wait to hear what you think about it!
