atlas assortment no.10

It feels like it’s been a while! I am just home from an exciting/exhausting week in Vegas for work, and looking forward to a nice relaxing Sunday afternoon. I was able to spend yesterday getting pedi’s, shopping, and dining @ Grand Electric with my sisters which was such a lovely treat! Gosh, I have also been on a bit of a shopping streak lately so better to just browse and window-shop atlas assortments for me right now ; )

As the long weekend comes to a close (well for some of us Canadians at least) I hope that everyone had a nice relaxing time no matter what you got up to. Nothing quite like a short work week to bring on a smile ; )
