It’s hot hot hot in Toronto, and my allergies are in full bloom. I love the sun, but I could stand for it to be about 5 degrees cooler. But I wouldn’t be Canadian if I didn’t complain about the weather every now and then.

Most people lose their appetites in a heat wave, but I’ve been eating like a horse for the past few days, so much so that I was just about to bust a few snaps on the front of this dress.
Speaking of the dress, I passed by it when it was full price, but I did snap it up on sale. It’s one of the few items I’ve bought on sale; I tend to buy most of my clothes at full price. I’m not very good at waiting for sales. There are a couple of reasons for this: when I want something, I want it now, and a couple of times I’ve waited for something to go on sale only to find that it doesn’t exist in my size anymore. I guess it’s a fear that I’ll miss out on something I love that drives me to pay full price. I also think that if I don’t want it now, why would I want it on sale? It’s not just waiting for sales either. I hate bargain shopping. I’ll visit outlets and not buy anything, because I don't want to buy something just because it’s cheap. That dress may have only been $9, but if it’s not awesome and I don’t love it, it’s $9 wasted.
