Fabulous finds { Wedding rings }

After reading Joanna Goddard on A Cup of Jo blogging about her wedding and honeymoon, I just can't wait for my turn. I'm sure marriage comes to mind for most of us, especially when you meet the person that fits you. Well, that's what happened to me :)

Here are some of my favorites that won't break the bank.

Fabulous finds { Fall looks }

Apparently, Summer is officially over in Toronto. Fall is at your foot steps. I haven't really enjoyed wearing all of my summer dresses yet. Not that I don't love Fall season, I DO. I love putting on layers, a nice jacket and a pair of my favorite boots. I came across Non-no's October issue. I think cropped pants are really in right now. I've seen it everywhere. I love how casual it looks!!

I'm currently watching { Buzzer Beat ブザー・ビート}

The drama is ending soon. Next week I believe. It's fun of course, but I'm beginning to think I'm too old for this kind of drama...ha. It's a young love story with teenage feel. Me five years ago would LOVE this kind of drama for sure.

I found Natsuki very very interesting. I enjoy watching her character the most in this drama. I think Aibu Saki plays Natsuki really well.

I try watching the drama without subtitles lately. It's frustrating not be able to understand the whole thing since my Japanese is very poor, but at the same time, it's every exciting to be able to understand it as well :)

Down the Rabbit Hole into Wonderland

I'm posting about Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland today. I can't wait to see it in theater. I know it's going to be awesome!!

Alice is a bit too grown up in my opinion

Awesome sets!

These flowers with faces haunted me when I was young.

These two guys here too.

The Queen of hearts

Some says he looks like Elijah Wood...ha

I have been staying up for more than 20 hours without any sleep and just realized that I skipped breakfast, lunch and dinner!!

Japanese food { Salmon fried rice }

My sister is very kind that she made me some salmon fried rice (after telling her how much I wanted to eat it!). I have tried salmon fried rice at some Japanese restaurants. Not many of them have it, but mostly home style restaurant has this dish. I wrote the ingredients and recipe below just in case you might want to try making it.

Rice 2 cups, cooked
Salmon 1 fillet (baked until cook, break into small pieces)
Onions 1/4 cup, diced
Garlic 2-3 cloves, chopped
Garlic salt 1 teaspoon
Soy sauce 2-3 tablespoons
Oil 1 tablespoon
Butter 1 tablespoon

1.Heat the pan, put oil and butter then add onion and garlic.
2.Add rice into the pan, mix well.
3.Season with garlic salt, soy sauce. You may add a little bit of pepper.
4.Then add salmon into the pan, mix well.
5.Serve, garnish with some chopped green onions.

If any of you decide to make this dish, please let me know how it turns out :)

Lovely + Inspiring { Amélie }

Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain

Love her short bangs.

Her own little world in an old apartment.

The Café des 2 Moulins is where Amélie works.

I love her sense of humor too.

One of these gnomes gets to travel more than I have.

Shop n' Promotions { OCAD craft fair }

I had such a great time doing the craft fair at OCAD's butterfield park today. There are so many young & fashionable & artsy people since it was the first year student's orientation day.

I also got a suntan from sitting outside all day and I totally forgot to put some sunscreen on!! The Sun was too bright to take any good photo. Pictures are either too dark or too bright. I had a hard time taking a nice one :(

Many thanks to those who came all the way to the craft fair. I had so much fun. Will definitely be doing more craft fair again in the future :)

Shop n' Promotions { Craft fair display }

I'm updating about my shop's progression on this coming craft fair. I'm very excited about it. I sent some invites to people who have joined my facebook group. If you haven't seen or received it, please check out this LINK.

For the past few days, I was doing some research on the craft fair displays. Since, it's my very first craft fair ever, I want it to be as smooth as it could be :)

I stumbled upon a lovely paper tier that they usually use for cupcakes. I find it can be as good as a jewelry display as well. The picture above is what it looks like.

There're a lot of things to do of course, but this is my craft fair's progression so far.

Some close up shots of my DIY paper tier....

I will update more later :)
