Friday Favourites - The first in a long while

It's no secret by now that I've been a busy bee. Between working (I spent my entire day in court today), tutoring (also working), and life-ing, I have neglected my poor blog (and yours :( ). Life happens though and Im here with my faves. I should mention though that although I may sound like I'm complaining, I actually love my job and find joy in giving it 150% - I just need to find extra time in the day for everything else that I love. Anyhoo ... 

Friday Favourites
Fave Moment:
This past weekend, my firm had an awards ceremony for staff. I got to dress up, let my hair down (literally) and look cute. I forgot to snap pics though so all you get is this grainy pic from the car ride.

Fave un-fave moment:
Ok so this isnt a fave but I had to document it. I got my very first flat this past week. I legit threw my car (technically my dad's new car that I've been driving for a month that I'm not sure if ill ever give back because my dad is the bestest best and - its cute) into a crater in the road ... ok lets not be so dramatic. I drove straight into a hole filled with water and the tire popped. Although I have roadside assistance (similar to your AAA), two good Samaritans stopped and changed my tire for me (while trying to pick me up and giving me their numbers ... ). They put on a spare and I drove myself to the shop to get a real tire put on... which in itself should be documented since I've never done that before. First time for everything I guess.

Fave Family - thingy:
My sis who lives in Australia got a puppy. And he's the cutest thing ever. Hello Domino!!

Fave Recipe:
Shameless plug. I created this recipe and posted it on Wednesday. You should try it! ;) I'm cooking a lot these days and plan to document that more since its become fun and ... why not.

Truer words have never been spoken:

My Weekend mantra:
It happens every single time:

And then I'm all like:

Fave Song:
I might be too embarrassed to say how much I love this song and how much I've listened to it in the past week. But it's my jam these days:

Typical me ... I go missing and then I throw out an extra long post. If you read this far you da best!
Have a great weekend guys!!!


  1. I think you kinda have to do long posts from now on because we missed you so much when you were gone and now we just have to hear everything. 😀
    Congrats on handling the tire situation like a big girl. I love those funnies. The scale is not my friend right now either. I need to lay off the ice cream and chocolate and legit befriend the scale again.

    1. hehe Ill do more posts, long and short. I just need maybe an hour more in the day lol. PS the scale legit HATES me right now!

  2. That last meme, I've seen it before, but it is sooooo good! And, how cute is your sister's puppy?!?!

  3. Flat tires are the worst and they always happen at the worst times too. Glad it was taken care of. That puppy is adorable!!

  4. OMG your sister's new puppy is the cutest little thing ever! And you look gorgeous in that pic from the even girl, loving your hair down! :) And I totally love that song too, don't worry. Happy Friday! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  5. I popped a tire instantly once, too and luckily was right next door to a tire place. I love that some guys stopped to help and were trying to pick you up, gorgeous girl!! You look so fabulous in that pic, glad you got to get so dolled up! Have a great weekend!

  6. lol on the memorized numbers! i don't know anyone's number anymore!! glad you're back and glad the car tire is ok!

  7. I love your style! Every time you post a dressed up photo, I'm like, "Oooh, so preeety." Car stuff is a pain. The first time I ever had a flat I was actually excited! Because my mom taught us how to change it and I was going to get to use my knowledge! But someone stopped for me, too. And then was very distressed because my crappy $200 car didn't actually have a workable spare (opened the trunk to see a big slash in the "spare" tire). Ahhhh, 19 years old. I don't miss it!

  8. That piuppy is SOOOO cute! Love!

  9. awww your sister's puppy is so adorable! ugh tyres popping and changing them, ugh. not my jam haha. suepr gorgeous in that selfie, duh!

  10. Ohhhhhh Domino is the cutest! And you look gorgeous for your ceremony!

  11. Ughhh flat tires are the worst, glad you're ok! And how adorable is your sis' pupper! Happy Friday gurlie <3

  12. Your funnies made me crack up--- especially 'I has the dumb'. DOn't you feel grown up now that you've gotten a flat tire and dealt with it!

  13. I has the dumb every day lately! Good to see you back for a minute. Awww that puppy though, so cute!

  14. I feel the same way about my blogging lately. Life just happens sometimes. Those funnies are on point. Especially the low tolerance one. That's been me all week.

  15. Dude, no joke. I legit run to that song just about every time I run these days. When I first shazamed it to find out who it was I was like oh.....well crap! Hahaha! That puppy!!!! OMG! So cute!!! Flat tires and other adulting sucks so hard. Glad someone helped you out!

  16. No shame in loving that Bieber song. I think everyone does! That Shepherd's pie looks sooo good. I've only had Shepherd's pie like once when Michael ordered it and I had a bite. I need to make it at home!

  17. Uh oh poor tire! I know the pot holes are insane in Trini and if it's filled with water how can you tell how deep it is. Hope it didn't cost too much. Hope you have a great weekend, girl!

  18. Girl, no shame because that song has been on repeat for me for the past few months. I love it so much. Right along with Justin's other song he has out right now, "What Do You Mean?" Seriously, I don't even mind that it's JB. Seems like he's doing something right these days I guess!
    Flat tires are no fun!! Sorry you had to deal with that but so glad you were able to get it all fixed up and taken care of with minimal drama :)

  19. When I had a flat tire for the first time you would have thought my world came to an end. It's all about the run flat tires for me now lol

  20. Bummer about your flat, but so glad people were good to help! :) #rare these days. That imbecile pic is on point. For reals. annnnnd that puppy is adorable... dying over that picture! If I were you I would be visiting your sister all the time! :) XO -Alexandra

  21. Oh your sister's puppy is so cute. Flat Tires are the worse. I got one recently and it sucked. I feel your pain, glad you were able to get it fixed.

  22. ha! I am so embarrassed to admit but I love bieber's new brand! his latest song "what do you mean" is on repeat LOL!

  23. I know I'm almost a week late on the comment. I apologize!

    The funnies are killing me. Oh that cute puppy face!!!! Domino is an AWESOME name!!! Plus you are looking adorable in that picture girl!

  24. Never be embarrassed for loving any song Skrillex related. Skrillex legit has my heart <3 Also, having two guys hit on you while they change your tire is totally a "Krystal-problem" aka too good looking for your own good. Ha!

  25. i recently had my first flat tire too and it was an experience trying to figure it out ha. and that puppy is soooooo cute!

  26. Oh my god. I want to steal Domino. And you always look great! I've never seen a bad photo of you, you beautiful lady! And I'm glad you were able to get some help with the flat tire!


I read all my comments. Drop me a line! I would love to hear from you! :)
