This past weekend was fantastic. Thanksgiving is always an amazing time of the year, but lucky us, we had three days of sunshine and warm weather. With turkey eating and relaxation time filling up Sunday & Monday, my cousin Renee and I met up for some lunch and shopping on Saturday.

We first stopped at Art Is In Bakery. If you are from Ottawa and haven't been here, you're missing out. It would take you weeks to try everything. From pastries to meals, they offer a wide range of food for your breakfast, lunch or snacking needs. I had the chocolate chip & peanut butter cookie and there were real peanuts inside it. For serious. It was the best cookie I've ever had.
Then we walked from my place to the Rideau Centre, passing through some of Ottawa's beautiful downtown greenery. It reminded me of a minuscule version of central park, just because of all the people on benches reading, chatting or just enjoying a coffee. Okay- so there's no one on these benches, but I swear we passed tonnes!

To end the day we did a bit of shopping. And by a bit I mean she did a lot, and I did some. I finally splurged on a sweater from American Apparel that I have been eyeing for a few months now. Can't wait to show that off to you all soon.

Until next time!

  4. That sounds like such a great day! And I'm totally hungry now.

  5. Okay so now I'm craving chocolate chip cookies and all I've got is a snack box of radishes. Thanks lady!

    No, hope you had a good time shopping! American apparel also has some really pretty beanies right now, but they're a bit too expensive for me :( xo

  6. Sounds like a perfectly lovely day! I love Art-is-In bread and I've been dying to get to their bakery. I'm always afraid there'll be a giant lineup. What time did you go? Did you wait long?

  7. Also, you look really pretty in that closeup photo!
