Canada Day Outfit of the Day

Canada Day was weeks ago but I was quite busy so this post is super late. Better late than never right? Canada Day is all about rocking the Red and White, Blue Jays, TFC or Raptors shirt if your from Toronto. Majority of the people that I saw that day was wearing Blue Jays shirts (our baseball team) I spent the day at Centreville, a Toronto island in the middle of the city with family and friends. It was good old quality time, and it was a lot of fun.

I was surprise to look into my closet and discover that I actually don't own a lot of red. I think I have like three, hence this is the closet to red I could find. I am still obsessed with the hippie look :)

Wearing an Ikat print sheer blouse from Sirens. Abercrombie denims. Ardene braided headband, and a straw bag from the states. Rayban sunnies.
My hair was this long. I actually cut it last week :)
The line-up to get on the ferry extended all the way to the street. I have never seen this place so busy.
Meet up with some friends. 
Ended the night with fireworks at the park.

Kate Middleton and Prince William were also visiting Canada at the time. I love how Kate rocked the Red and White. So classy. 

I would just like to say thank you to Marcela of Fashionadictas for this lovely blog award. She is super sweet and her blog is all about the latest fashion from the runway. So if your a fashion lover like me check her out :)

Tobermory - Last Day :( (Image Heavy)

I dreaded the last day of our trip. I guess it's true what they say that all good things come to an end. The night before it was raining furiously, and continued throughout the morning and was on and off throughout the day. Sleeping in was nice but our plan to go on a boat cruise to venture into another island was quickly made impossible. We spent the day checking out the lighthouse, strolling through town and attempting to shop and joining the locals at a bingo game- my first time! Admittedly, it was fun despite the fact that aside from a few young guys we were the only one in the young category, relatively speaking. I had an idea how to play, but I didn't realize that there was more to it. Thankfully, everyone was ready to help.

Wearing GAP shirt, and Abercrombie shorts. 

The Lighthouse, which would have been the perfect spot to catch the sunrise.
Breakfast of champions - yes, its true we even eat rice for breakfast :) All Filipinos would recognize this meal . Longganisa  sausages are just too good.
I really wanted to go here and find some treasures but they were close. 

It got quite cold at night. Wearing my scarf from H&M and Forever 21 Stripe Sweater.
For our last dinner, BF made some amazing ribs, steamed broccoli and more grilled asparagus and mushrooms. 
Goodbye, our humble abode.
Our drive home, what a difference it was from our drive going there.

Tobermory, Day 2 - Being one with nature

The weather in Tobermory is quite unpredictable. The second day of our trip consists of a 4 hour hike of the Bruce Peninsula National Park where the beauty of the place truly lies. I have never been hiking before. Although, the weather in the morning was cloudy, I expected it to warm up in the afternoon, hence the romper and bathing suit combo that I wore to go hiking. Yes I know who wears that to hike right? LOL. Well, the weather never got warm and the sun only showed itself periodically. Needless to say there was no swimming involve. Nevertheless, I truly enjoyed my first time hiking, and dare I say that I actually loved it. I never actually got tired, just famished at the end of it all. There were also public washrooms in a couple of places, they are the non-flush-able ones where you put some sort of wood shavings, aka, bulking agent after you do your thing.  It was not the best experience but I wasn't expecting any better, just glad that they were present.

This is so cute! I was surprised that there were actually a lot of Americans vacationing here judging by their license plate. These guys were from Pennsylvania. 

A few brave souls who took a dip in the water.

The Grotto.

Bf managed to make it down. I wish I went to, but I didn't exactly feel like climbing down with a DSLR in tow, especially without the reward of a swim afterwards. Maybe next time.
Nature is so beautiful. 

We hiked through rocks. It was tough and require a good balance. 
Stopping to enjoy the view.

Another stop. Same view, diffirent angle,  and just as beautiful.
We were famished at the end of the hike. Good food is a must. 

Mini burgers.

Bon appetit

Also, a very big thank you to Divina Joy for my second blog award.  How very sweet of you Divina, I am honoured and thankful.  Please check out her blog. I love reading her thoughts and insights. She is also very sweet.
