Stuff I Wore - On the Run

I can't believe it's already the first day of Fall. I am not looking forward to the cooler weather. Sadly, this will be my last summer outfit post. This outfit was from a few days ago. I'm not actually 'on the run', it just feels like it whenever I put on these super bright New Balance : ) It's the New Balance Fresh Foam Zante. They're extremely light and comfy - I absolutely love them! 

I like a nice logo tshirt. This one from Adidas is a little different. The logo is actually wrapped around the side and not located dead centre. Interesting, eh?

To add a bit more colour to this outfit, there's my TOMS Traveller sunglasses, which I've been wearing quite often this summer.

Hope everyone had an awesome summer. Now, stay tuned for some fall looks coming soon...

Tshirt - Adidas
Shorts - Bluenotes

Fun Visual Ads from McDonald's

I love advertisements and always keep my eyes out for them. Check out these cool ones from McDonald's, just in time for back to school.

I especially love visual ads and this McDonald's campaign for Back to School created by ad agency Moroch are smart and beautifully done.

No need to mention or show any food. The ads feature visual illusions such as a school bag that looks like a happy meal, books that looks like a cheese burger and pencils that look like French fries.

So fun! Which one is your fav? These ads are making me hungry : )

Stuff I Wore - Fading Away

My 3 years old niece, Arianna joined me for my outfit shoot.

Before we know it, summer will be 'fading away' soon. I love not wearing layers during the summer time. In this outfit, I wore a simple v-neck tshirt. The faded black & stripes made the simple top a little more interesting. I paired it with a pair of green shorts and white kicks.

During this outfit shoot, my adorable 3 years old niece joined me. Check out her adorable outfit - she's too cute!

I love pizza, but cooking it on a BBQ? Now that, I have to try! Check out the latest new creation from Delissio called RUSTICO.

The NEW Delissio Rustico will help you beat the 'BBQ Blues'? What is the 'BBQ Blues'? Well, it's actually taking place around now where many of us want to enjoy the summer grilling season, but are becoming tired of grilling the usual foods and can't bring ourselves to bite into another grilled piece of meat. Which I could totally understand.

Delissio Rustico wants to put the excitement back in grilling and save you from the BBQ Blues. The solution is simply by marrying BBQ Night and Pizza night by cooking Delissio Rustico on the BBQ!

What a neat idea, right? Inspired by the authentic Italian experience, Delissio Rustico pizzas are made with only the freshest and highest quality ingrediants. Unlike some other frozen pizzas, Delissio Rustico is perfect for cooking on the BBQ because of its crispy and delicious thin crust.

The Delissio Rustico comes in six varieties - which will satisfy all your BBQ cravings and make for a memorable pizza night.
• Spinaci Fresca
• Margherita
• Funghi
• Pepperoni Diavolo
• Pollo Toscano
