Ottawa Day Trip and August Announcement!

Can you believe that August came around so fast?  Summer already feels like its over but still, with so much time at home from being sick and before that being in a car on vacation, my mind has been working really hard on thinking up things I wanted to do for the blog.

Before that, you know me! I can’t just start by giving you the announcements! With all that positive seeking yesterday, it got even more awesome after I published THIS POST! My friend called me up and went to Ottawa for a day trip for exploring the St. Laurent Mall (always went to the Rideau Mall) and then to our favorite supermarket T&T! 🙂

Of course, I always end up buying stuff! At the St. Laurent Mall, I bought this:

I got The Casual Vacancy for 40% off at Coles. Then got two different types of teas at Teavana.  One of a herbal tea called Peach Tranquility which works well on its own and is supposed to be a good match for Tranquil Dream herbal tea also.  Second one is a classic green tea called Emperor’s Clouds & Mist.  It smells awesome! I can’t wait to try it out.

I also got a new dress! Finally after searching for one the whole summer, I finally found one that worked 😉

I’m not too good at self-portraits apparently with my new camera.  This is the best shot I have.  Love the dress though 🙂

Next stop at T&T Supermarket, my friend’s new cooler was big help.  I could get some frozen Fried Pork Buns and Steamed Pork Dumplings.  We also got some dimsum for a late lunch and some food for dinner that evening.  I bought some Black Sesame Soy Milk (my fave which I talked about HERE!). Lets check out the dimsum 🙂

Now that I have your attention with food 🙂 Ready for the August Announcement?

So, I’ve been thinking about it for a while.  This year, I’ve talked about Meg Ryan marathon, Nicholas Sparks marathon, but those won’t be for August.  All of you have been totally awesome whenever I post up film reviews and would always suggest more movies for me to check out.  Believe it or not, I’ve jotted it down in my notebook and a part in my email drafts as well.  That list has been getting really long so in a mission to decrease the list and to give some mention all of you, I’m going to be spending August watching movies solely from movies you recommended.

This week, I will start with two movies that aren’t recommendations because it was before I made this decision.  After those two, we’ll get cracking right away.  If you have certain movies that you feel I’d like, then please go ahead and recommend it in the comments whenever you’d like.  Drop me an email or tweet me if you’d like.  Whatever works for you, but I don’t mind the list getting bigger.  I’ve been thinking about this for a while and I felt it was the right time! 🙂

I will also be looking for a film for the Shitfest so there might be a few interviews from that as well 🙂 I will be changing my horror packs since the current one seem to not be going anywhere.  So maybe this one will hit the jackpot right away!.

August is going to be recommendations month! Drop me more if you’d like 🙂

Hope you had a great weekend! Lets have a great August together 🙂
