Cancan Obsession: Look #1


Hello my loves! I can't believe yesterday marked 7 months since Mr Macaroni and I were married! And so to celebrate, we started a blog! Kidding, he says there's no "we" in this blog. We shall see hubster, we shall see.

If you've been following me on Instagram you know all about my current obsession with the cancan saree. It started with styling my koorai and I just couldn't stop. My mom loves seeing me dressed up so when I asked her to take some pics in her sarees, to say she was ecstatic would be an understatement.

We had an amazing afternoon hanging out, putting together outfits and accessories and teaching her to take pics with the dslr. Tony travelled for work the first 5 months of our marriage so I'd spend Monday-Thursday at my parents'. It still felt like I lived at home. Now that Tony is back in Toronto full-time and we've been living in our house, I only get to see my momsicles for 5 minutes, 2-3 times a week when I pick up food after work.

I sound like such a mommy's girl and I've lived away from home so many times in my life (for uni in UK, teaching in Korea) but somehow being married and moving away feels so different. Also, when you're younger, you feel like you have eternity to spend with your loved ones. As you grow older, you realize how quickly time flies and how important it is to make the most of every moment you can steal. So I'm happy we've found one more way to spend a little more quality time together, just the two of us :)

All the pictures in this series were taken by my lovely Momsicles
