Bestival 2016

SUPER LAST MINUTE decided to purchase tickets to Bestival even though it took away half my bank account so I’ll probably lose a lot of weight this month because I’ll be starving myself (I’m currently accepting donations).

But this is my first festival ever so that should be okay right? 😉 #ShitISayToFeelBetter

SATURDAY – DAY 1

Only decided to go for 1 day because let’s be real, if I went for two days I might as well live on the streets #AintNobodyGotMoneyForDat.

Bestival 2016
doing everything together, what else is new?

SH*T TO BRING:

1. SUNSCREEN

if you don’t want this to be you, bring sun screen. PS thanks Cindy for remembering when we all forgot

2. PORTABLE CHARGER

If you’re like me and your snapchat is annoying af with festival music, you definitely need to bring a portable charger to help with your dying battery (stupid iPhone 5… also accepting donations for a new phone as well)

3. EMPTY WATER BOTTLE

The number of times I’ve had to fill water bottles is countless. You definitely need this b/c water is expensive there, people!!!

4. SUNGLASSES

5. SPRAY-ON DEODORANT 

So we all sweated buckets and good thing we had our spray-on deodorant (that way you can share with other people) so we were good for the whole day ;). I also brought a roll-on perfume so that kept us fresh the whole day too!

first festival experience? 🙂

Shoutout to Anni, Cindy, Emily, and Adrian for being there for my first festival experience <3. I loved that there was so much to do! There was a parade, a bunch of food trucks (even though we didn’t get our ice-cream… #sosad), and activities (bouncy castle?).

Love,

Lisa

Favourite Tracks of January

Seeing that I create a playlist every single month, I thought I’d share some of my favourites from January #BecauseICan #AndTheyreGreat #InsertHairFlip.

 

1. BED OF LIES

2. I DON’T MIND

3. 2014 IN 10 MINUTES

4. SURRENDER (PIERCE FULTON REMIX)

5. SLEEPLESS (HOTEL GARUDA & THERO REMIX)

6. MIAMI 82 (KYGO REMIX)

7. STOLEN DANCE

8. ATLAS HANDS (THOMAS JACK REMIX)

Ever since last summer, I started to listen to more tropical house music (or deep house, whatever you want to call it). They’re the perfect studying music (unless you’re like me who can’t listen to music while they study…)

Anywho, hope y’all enjoy the tracks I’ve posted & good luck on exams!

Love,
Lisa

Top 3 This Week

If you’ve been keeping up with me (instead of the Kardashians), you’re probably aware of the fact that I’m pretty broke right now due my unhealthy spending habits (aka symptoms of a shopaholic). Well… I’m happy to say that one of the first steps towards recovery is awareness and let me tell you, I am fully aware of my issues (I’m talking about my shopping issues BTW so if you’re thinking about some other issues I have then… well… that makes me very sad). ANYWAY, I’ve decided to take matter to my own hands and work as much as I can so I don’t end up working in the black market because a 5″2 (I grew an inch #Proud) person like me will never survive (HOWEVER… when I think about it, I feel like I would be the perfect person to work in the black market because who would ever accuse me of ever doing anything?! *insert puppy eyes/innocent smile/hair twirl/you name it* except maybe after the above statement)

What I was really trying to say in the above paragraph is that since I’ve been working so much (to the point that I got overtime pay #Yay #ATimeAndAHalf #ImRichNow #JK #IWish), I haven’t really had anything to write about… #NoLife. Unless if you want every post to be “Dear Diary, today I went to work. Then I went home.” “Dear Diary, I went to work again.” “Dear Diary, I am now calling my workplace my home.” #WhoWouldntWantToReadThat #LetsBeReal

Actually… now that I think about it, I went to Milestones yesterday with Jessie and Tiffney for their Girls’ Night Out so I technically did go somewhere other than work… (Jessie got drunk after 1/2 a bellini BTW #LightWeight). Unfortunately, I don’t have any pictures to share because I was dumb enough to leave my memory card behind so all the pictures that I thought I took I didn’t actually take #BloggerFail.

How can you say no to this?!??!

So besides that mini getawei to Milestones, I don’t have much else to write about… but since I desperately want to write about something because it’s been quite quiet and I definitely don’t like quiet, I’ve decided to share my three Top 3s (Favourite Whatevers) of the past week. If you’re interested. So if you’re not… stop reading. Like right now. Stop. Why are you still reading? … you must be interested. #WTFJustHappened

TOP 3 FAVOURITE SONGS

**Once again, I’d like to state that this is for this week because if you actually ask me what my all time favourite 3 songs are I really can’t tell you** (cause there’s too many too choose from not because I’m keeping this a secret. #WhyAmISoAwkward #GonnaMoveOnNow)

1. WRITTEN IN REVERSE – TIESTO FT. MATTHEW KOMA

Not like this should be a surprise to anyone because it’s Matthew Koma. Like Victor says, he leaves you in a coma 😉

Take a listen here.

2. LATCH – DISCLOSURE FT. SAM SMITH

Okay so is anyone else absolutely obsessed with Sam Smith?!?!?!? His voice… it’s one of those “I can’t even” moments. Seriously. Where did you come from?!?!?! I don’t usually use lame pick up lines but damn, did it hurt? When he fell from heaven…? 😉 #ThisIsWhyImSingle

Listen here.

3. WINGS – BIRDY

I sort of lied. I shouldn’t really have put just this song because all of her songs in her new album is like… (insert something irresistible) (try to not let it be a 3 letter word). This might be why her face is taking up the featured photo of this post. Instead of blabbing, just listen to her entire album here.

TOP 3 FAVOURITE NEW THINGS I’VE ADDED TO MY BUCKET LIST

1. GET MY CLASS 5’S AKA MY FULL LICENSE BECAUSE I’M SAFE DRIVER (OR TRY TO BE)

I got my N (aka G2 for those Ontario readers) a year late so this year I’m finally qualified to take my exam #HURRAY. (You should be either really excited or really scared)

2. CONVINCE MY COWORKER TO LET ME RIDE ON THE BACK OF HIS MOTORCYCLE

So there’s a new guy at work called John #NotMyBrother who owns his own motorcycle. Obviously it’s my responsibility to try and convince him to take me on a joy ride because it’s the right thing to do.

3. LOSE THE FLAB AND GET SOME ABS

I can’t really take credit for that clever line because it was really my coworker (and part-time lover) Andrea who thought of it this morning. But yeah… after pigging the heck out in Taiwan I’m dealing with some lack of self-esteem #ButIJustCantSeemToPutDownThatOneLastSliceOfPizza.

Thank you, Miranda Kerr. You always know how to make me feel bad about myself #ButILoveLookingAtYou #ThatCameOutWayTooCreepy #IDidntMeanItLikeThat

TOP 3 FAVOURITE THINGS TO COMPLAIN ABOUT

1. I CAN’T EAT THAT FAST

What I can never understand is how someone can eat so fast. Sometimes, I would have the exact same food as the person beside me and we would have the same starting time but… I end up eating 10x slower. You might not think this is important but when your lunch break is only 30 minutes and eating becomes a workout… it’s a problem. I CAN NEVER FINISH MY FOOD. Then, I get hungry for the rest of the day. WHO HAS A SOLUTION TO THIS?!?!

2. I CAN’T WAIT UP BUT I CAN’T FALL ASLEEP

This is something I’ll never get. I fail to wake up in the morning but I also can’t fall asleep at night. WHAT THE HECK?! Can you trade?!

3. THAT ONE TIME

LAST THING THAT I LOVE COMPLAINING ABOUT.. is when you always, always, always, always, do something, but that one time you don’t do it, something else happens that throws you off. My favourite complaint when it comes to situations like these is that one time when I consciously decided not to put my face on for my 6 hour flight from Toronto to Vancouver (even though I usually apply make-up whenever I leave my house) I meet Patrick freaking Chan. Maybe if I had a face on that day I would be married by now. Seriously. #DramaQueenHour

omg. let's just... k. I can't. No. Let's not talk about this anymore.

Hopefully your summer’s a lot more fun than mine!!!

PS. When I started typing this post and was bragging about my baby steps towards being a recovered shopaholic, it was the day before I found out about the Aritzia Clientele. So… today I broke my bank account again. #HiEveryone #ImLisa #AndImAShopaholic #HiiiiiiiiiiLisssssaaaaaaaaaaaaa

I should really go to weekly meetings and start collecting these pins.
