my new skinny jeans

There's a lot to be happy about these days. I've been working out and eating better and have actually started seeing results, one of my best friends got engaged this weekend, the Canucks are in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, etc. etc.
Come to think of it, it's really been quite a stressful week LOL! But, I'm trying my hardest to get through it with a smile on my face and a positive attitude! I'm thinking that a glass of wine (or two) might bring my stress levels down ;)

What do you do to cope with a hectic week?


  1. You are looking good! I too have been on a health kick and it seems to be working! Yay! Love those skinny jeans on you!

    I have a mojito and read on my balcony to de-stress. I feel your pain for all the stress. Hopefully the rest of our weeks go better!

  2. aah why are you so pretty! but that outfit is seriously cute and the shoes are my fave.
    When I want to relax I grab a good book and a cup of tea and maybe a piece of chocolate :)

  3. great photos! who's the photog?
    haven't found a great way of coping with stress yet. but i think it would be something like having coffee with a good friend & a delicious treat. :)

  4. Oh seems like you have a lot going on, eating healthy that something I should do too, you look lovely with that hat!

  5. Those jeans do look good! I'll have to stop by Plum one of these days. I've never been but I love all the pieces that you've worn in your posts!

    Also been having a stressful week. I cope with shopping hahaha. Retail therapy at it's best!

  6. Ughhhhh, I can't handle to stress of the Playoffs. Praying for a good result tomorrow! *fingers crossed* This has been my month of fitness as well... I hope to see results like you have :) Love the jumping pic!

  7. I have told you this a gazillion times but you're so pretty. oh and, those skinny jeans look great on you!

    when I am stressed I usually have a glass of wine, walk a little or jog, read blogs, pray or meditate.

  8. A glass of wine (or two) is my solution for pretty much every stressful situation :) Good for you for making an effort to get healthier, though- although all the effort probably isn't helping your stress level, I'm sure the results will be more than worth it! You are looking gorgeous- that floral top is beautiful, your floppy hat is perfection and that blue nailpolish (is it from the Glee collection) is the perfect finishing touch!

  9. Can I just say how fabulous that nail polish shade is?! <3

  10. You look great and so happy!


  11. That floppy hat is incredible! Is it cliché to ease stress with chocolate? Because that is what I definitely do!

  12. yeaaaahhh!!! so positive!!!! :)))))

  13. Alicia, you look great! I love your nail polish :)


  14. Love these photos! Great blouse and shoes, loving the coral pops!
    Sounds like you really have had a busy week, hopefully you will get to relax a bit watching the big game tonight!

  15. Sounds like an amazing but busy period! And you're looking gooooooooooood, whatever you're doing, tell me. The blouse is amazing by the way, and I love your nail polish against the other colours. Hope you have an amazing night tonight, I'm gonna be roaming the streets, maybe see you!

  16. Love the two-toned blue nails!

  17. I love the first picture! You're so cute! I'm glad you're seeing results from all of your hard work! I love a good glass (or 2) of wine or a little yoga or climbing to relieve stress!

  18. first of all...you got some major air!! and secondly a glass of wine, a little walk by the water helps me!

  19. Sounds like a pretty good week, all things considered. When recuperating from a hectic week I generally like to just have a bath or read a book, something quiet where I can just "be", cheesy as it sounds.

  20. You look great, i adore the blouse and hat!

    I deal with a hectic week by drinking a lot of beer with friends at the end of it. Haha! not the best advice :D

  21. Wine. Lots of Wine.

    I could really go for some wine right now, and maybe an email account that works. Thank God we got back some of our FOLDERS!

    No one is going to understand this comment.

  22. love your AA hat and ring. Living a healthy life is always empowering to me. I

    ps. the mess over the lose of Stanley cup in Vancouver is really sad. I hope all of you ladies are alright.

  23. I appreciate a well dressed jumping photo. :)

    Honestly, I unwind by reading blogs, watching some shows on Netflix and sitting in my backyard. Having new lawn chairs helps!

  24. Great pictures! They're so fun :)


  25. Cool picture.. Love your outfit :)

  26. This outfit is pure perfection. I love your blouse! I was thinking of you the other day when I saw the riots on T.V. What morons. I hope they all go to jail and I hope you were far away from the destruction.


  27. Beautiful pics...I always love a pretty floral design...you have a new fellow Canadian follower xoxx


  28. such cute photos and i love the outfit too....i need to start exercising and dieting again too now that summer is officially here!
    great job staying positive, but yeah, wine always helps me settle down :P

  29. Good for you on the being healthy & exercising! I'm attempting to do that to prepare for beach days... it's a long process. Dessert is just tooo tasty. So is wine (that is definitely my de-stressor!)

    Have a fabulous weekend!

  30. These are some of the cutest photos I've seen on your blog Alicia! Love the colour palette of your outfit. Hope your stress levels have been lowered by now, and I'm glad you've been taking care of your body and seeing results. That's the best! I personally try to sleep it off, go for a run or dress up and feel pretty :)


  31. You look GREAT! LOVE this top!!

  32. Thanks my loves, I will try to answer everyone this week. I wasn't kidding when I said things were stressful at the moment :P Great tips, I'll be trying them out asap xo

  33. Such a cute outfit. Love the hat. A face mask, manicure, peidcure and a hair treatment along with the glass of wine in a nice hot bath is always what I do to unwind and destress. Hope you'll feel better soon. Mae xx
