Students return to school, while 9-to-5-ers recall the pain of travelling in regular volumes of traffic again. Summer is concluding, and daylight hours are diminishing.
Above all, GOT7 is making a comeback.
A fall comeback to be precise, wherein they will be releasing eight versions of their third full-length album, Present: YOU.
It goes without saying that yours truly has already taken to placing her preorder. Though it shall be some time before it is revealed whether my Turbulence mission will need to repeat itself for a Jinyoung edition...
Anyways, without further ado, here is a slew of this month's captures! For the most part, the camera was forgotten at home, so mobile snaps are aplenty.
A sign of true sales skills is being able to convince a customer to make a purchase, even when they wandered into the boutique with seemingly no desire to take out their wallet. The girl at The Face Shop succeeded in doing this.
Fairview Malls' The Face Shop was stocked with more VDL products than that of Square One, Markville, and Yorkdale combined. The utter pinkness of the collection drew me in, while the liquid glitter eyeshadow convinced me to stay and swatch.
Immediate regrets settled in with the first few uses of this product, however. The colour payoff was terrible - barely noticeable if you ask me - and specks of glitter transferred easily between the upper and bottom lids. The formula was difficult to layer with other eyeshadows as well, as it creased when set with powder types and smeared upon contact with gel eyeliner. (Liquid liner appeared fine though.)
This was a disappointing account of twenty-four dollars. The massage stick was nice though, in spite of the poorly-made plastic handle.
3) Brown Sugar Oolong Milk Tea w/ 2J (Tapioca and Coffee Jelly) from Gong Cha proved quite nice, as did the recently established array of eateries on York University grounds.
7) Thoroughly exploring North York's new openings
At the time of my first visit, I already had Kung Fu in hand - a decision I regretted greatly. I took to purchasing a Thai Tea Milk Pudding to go, though that was honestly quite disastrous. The second time around, Holy Snack was closed without explanation. On my third attempt, a small Thai Iced Tea was obtained; alas, the result was disheartening. I shall not be returning, not even for $3.99.
10) A new Miku outpost is on its way - not that I'll be bothering with any of the Toronto divisions anyway.
13) A much-needed Original Milk Tea from Palgong. The $2.99 deal - inclusive of tapioca pearls - is unbeatable!
16) Sunrises are commonly witnessed on the morning drive.
19) Jelly Donuts are terribly messy but tasty morsels that I can't ever resist.
20) More shopping and munching visuals
