On Friday night I went to Nature Nocturne at the Museum of Nature; a once monthly event where they turn the museum into a night club with multiple rooms with different DJ’s and sounds and more. Since it was the kick off to Pride Week here in Ottawa, this one had a burlesque and drag Queen show which was so fun to watch.
There was this huge octopus that hung from the ceiling and changed colours; trust me when I saw it was a huge photo-op to anyone with an Instagram account (ha).
Saturday morning I slept in and skipped the gym. Marco went and brought me home a steeped tea. We spent the afternoon cleaning the condo, doing laundry and enjoying some time inside while it poured rain all day.
Outfit deets: Urban Planet coat (new!), Winners thin-knit sweater, Urban Planet pants & Puma shoes.
We decided to head out around 6pm, separately, to do some shopping. I hit up the mall and scored a few cute things from H&M:
Faux leather moto-leggings | $40
These almost have a soft-micro-suede feel to them, and they look more faded and edgy.
Grey thick-knit stretch pencil skirt | $30
I didn’t buy the top.
Purple & pink sports bra | $25
I grabbed a few groceries afterwards and Marco and I cooked dinner together around 10pm–I know, so late, but so enjoyable at the same time. We had tortellini, garlic bread, caesar salad, wine and pie for dessert.
The next morning I slept in again and lazed around for a bit before getting my butt in gear.
Outfit deets: Bench jacket, 90 Degree by Reflex tank, Mondetta pants & Puma shoes.
Marco’s outfit: Under Armour tee & shorts & Puma shoes.
We were total matchers at the gym–so my planning, not his, but, I think secretly he doesn’t mind.
After the workout it was onto an impromptu breakfast at Baker Street.
Then home where I got ready to film my next Place d’Orleans video. This photo above looks nice but I was wearing tons o’ make-up #filmingface
After a severe down-pour (and that reason I haven’t been able to film sooner since it’s been gloomy and rainy all week), the sun finally peeked through… and here is a sneak peek at one of the looks we filmed in the video (Marco manned the camera).
Later I had left over pasta while I procrastinated on actually editing my footage.
And then I started to edit and a couple hours later..
Marco insisted we go for Vietnamese food… and you guys know I cannot turn down Viet food. Ever. Even when I’m not really hungry.
…and then we couldn’t not meet up with our friends for karaoke… I know. Terrible, terrible procrastination…
…which is why I was up until almost 3am editing and putting together this blog post. So THANK YOU for reading! The video should go live this week, I will of course share it here, per usual.
Hope you had a great weekend!
