Outfit Details: Jumpsuit (H&M), Handbag (Kathy Van Zeeland), Black Cardigan (eBay), Necklace + Beige Flats (Ardene's)

One trend that I look forward to coming back every spring/summer is jumpsuits. If you've never worn one, I'll tell you now - it's a pain when you go to the bathroom because you have to take the entire thing off, but jumpsuits are the most comfortable piece of clothing ever!

This one was an instant grab for me when I saw it in the sale section at H&M. I decided to add some black into the mix with light shoes to keep the contrast. It may be a bit much for some, but I love it!

Liebster award (tag)

A few weeks ago, I was tagged by Stephanie, the wonderful blogger behind Pretty And Delectable for a Liebster award! It's given to up-and-coming bloggers as a way of breaking the ice and getting to know one another.

The rules of this tag are:
  1. Each person tagged has to post 11 things about themselves. (I'm skipping this step just 'cause I can)

  • Answer the questions that the tagger set for you, plus create 11 questions for the people you've tagged to answer.
  • Choose 11 people and link them in your post.
  • Go to their page and tell them. (I follow them all on Twitter, so I will tweet them instead)
  • No tag backs!
  • Here we go...

    1. Gold or silver?
      I've always preferred silver, but gold has been growing in the last couple of years. My current swoon is the Anthropologie's delicate elephante necklace (in gold). I love animals a little too much.

  • What is your favorite candy?
    Skittles always wins. I may be the only person in the world who likes candy more than chocolate.
  • Best book you’ve read recently.
    I've been talking about this for a while, mainly because I hardly find time to read other than when I'm on the subway, but I've slowly been reading A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin (Game of Thrones). I love the show but the books are even better. I'm currently on book 3!
  • Link and/or photo of a handbag that you are currently coveting.
    Tory Burch anything please. I'm absolutely loving the Daria Top Handle Satchel (in navy). It is gorgeous, and would look fantastic on my arms. ;)
  • A sentence or two describing a happy memory from your childhood.
    One thing many people may not know about me is that I love to sing. When I was still living back home in Pakistan, my mom used to be the vice principal at the elementary school I was in. The perks I got were amazing… free food, great marks, tons of friends (haha). Anyway, everyday, after all the students and teachers had gone home, I always had time to kill before my mom was finished her work. I would go to the assembly area, which was a giant field where we would gather for events or announcements, and I would sing my heart out (in front of an empty crowd). It was so much fun!
  • Three favorite online shopping websites.
    I'm a crazy online shopper and actually like it more than going to the mall. I hate the craziness of customers, it brings really bad memories of me working in retail, so I usually skip that step and buy almost everything online. The three places I shop the most are Forever 21 (easy, fast affordable), Etsy (for unique and vintage pieces), and Amazon (books and movies).
  • Something that you learned recently.
    I love Mexican food and just learned how to make delicious beef burritos. You can make them in bulk too! Find the recipe here.
  • Beauty product you can’t live without.
    Concealer! My current favourite is Benefit's Boi-Ing Concealer.
  • A pet peeve.
    Most of my pet peeves are related to people and their habits, so I won't get too personal. One thing that really bothers me is when people chew gum loudly!
  • What is your favourite season of the year?
    It's a tie between summer and fall. I love the hot weather, but I also really enjoy the transition from the humidity in the summer to having cooler nights in the fall. My favourite month is September.
  • Number of hours you slept last night.
    I think I got about 5 hours. I usually get to bed around midnight and wake up at 6:30 a.m.
  •  Now, here are my 11 questions:
    1. What is your go-to movie if you're ever feeling down, tired or upset?
    2. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
    3. What are the top three blogs/news sources on your daily reading list?
    4. Briefly explain your daily beauty routine.
    5. Tell me the top 11 songs on your current playlist.
    6. What did you think of the London 2012 Olympics?
    7. Your current favourite TV show.
    8. What is your perfect meal?
    9. Excluding your blog, what is your favourite social network?
    10. What movie are you looking forward to watching this year?
