I found myself in a hilarious conversation with Kendra of Van City Pretty the other night. We ended up on the topic of parts of men we find attractive. Some women are into backs, butts, shoulders, legs and those drool worthy V-lines. I on the other hand, of course like backs and v-lines but there’s something about a man’s wrist that draws my attraction! Weird, right? Kendra thought so too.
If you agree with me, then you’ll understand why I think it’s attractive but for those of you that are thinking “Randa, what’re you high?!” lemme explain…
I don’t find it attractive when a guy has thin looking wrists, to me it doesn’t exude strength and power. When he has a nice defined wrist, and yes it needs to be a certain thickness to me it shows that he’s strong and can take care of me.
The thought is now totally bizarre that I’ve typed it out and read it out loud to myself but I’m stickin’ with it! Do you have any strange parts that you’re attracted to?
Thank you to Kendra for her witty remarks as she immediately titled the name of today’s post – It’s all in the wrist.

I purchased this top before I left for California. I thought it would be the perfect effortless top to wear for a night out but could also be worn causal like in this outfit. I also wore it with denim shorts and sparkly sandals. It’s a little hard to tell in the photos but it’s actually a cotton candy type of pink, but slightly more muted. I tucked in the front to show structure in the shorts and give myself a waist but left the back un-tucked to show the detail and let the slits flow.

Things have taken an interesting turn in the past couple of weeks. My California guy and I hit a bit of a wall. Like I had said before, we decided to come back to things at the end of the summer season and re-evaluate where we are at with our lives. Apparently, I was highly misinformed. The “summer season” is in fact not June – August (as my summer season would be) but is May – November (his summer season…err…his forest fire season). We’ve decided to take a step back and have limited communication with each other because waiting around for half a year and coming back to things next year just don’t seem plausible.
On another note, the guy I met in Vancouver who moved when I returned from California has been making more of an appearance. After being a total flake due to “life happens crap” he came back for a couple of days to Vancouver and we picked up where we left off. I’m pretty intrigued to see where this goes. Last summer a psychic told me that I would be leaving for Victoria (where he moved to) for an extended period of time (this year). Before him, I never had a reason to go there. Hmm…
In between these two events I had gone on a date with someone that I met at the LAX airport. In true gentleman fashion he drove all the way from Washington to Vancouver to take me on a date! He planned the entire thing. He took me for dinner and then to see Alex Clare live at the Commodore, he has definitely stepped up my bar for dates and how a gentlemen should treat a woman. I couldn’t even touch a door because he would swoop in front of me to open it. Thanks, J! Unfortunately there was no spark on my end but he would make a great friend.
On a third note, it’s my birthday next week!

I am trying to find new ways to wear my grey Aritzia dress. I wore it as is in my last outfit post HERE and have turned it into a skirt in this look. I enjoy the relaxed silhouette it gives me however I will admit I wish I wore a higher heel with this look. After seeing photos I noticed that the length of the skirt and height of the socks has cut my lower legs a little bit. If I had worn a high heel it would have made my legs look a lot longer. You can easily switch out this sweater for another colour and can wear it out for the day (like I did) or a casual evening out.

Have you ever heard that term? A Flirtationship. I first came across it while perusing through my Twitter feed and saw a tweet from @TaurusBelievers (yes I follow my Zodiac sign on Twitter, whatevs) that said “Some
#Taurus are in Flirtationship : It`s more than a friendship, but less than a relationship”.
I have never heard such a term, and it’s exactly what I need in my vocab to describe every something or other that I’ve had in the past few months. I’ve been in 4 Flirtationship in the past 9 months and I never knoq what goes wrong. How does it get stuck in a Flirtationship and not move into a relationship? If I had a nickel for every guy that said “you’re so great and so amazing… but I don’t want to date you” then I would have a enough for a 3 zone ticket on the skytrain (which is a lot considering they bumped up the price recently).
One of my closest girls is recently single and I’m pretty excited for her to start her Flirtationships. In fact, she took my photos for today’s post. She has no idea what’s in store for her with Vancouver guys. Good luck girl, don’t say I didn’t warn you! xoxo
