A Hint Of Spring

Glad that all of you guys seemed to have good christmases as well =)
So.. I have been contemplating for awhile now that my christmas present to myself should be a new bag since I've been looking for one for quite some time now. (Yes I need an excuse to buy myself more stuff =) ) Yesterday I was cruising the nordstroms website when I saw these B.Makowsky bags, which immediately brought back sad memories of this black bag that I left behind, and sadly still wish I would have bought. But now Im thinking these might make a good replacement, I would have to make the long journey down to nordstroms to see them in person, to make sure they have the accurate amount of slouchyness, but Im sure they will be just as lovely, considering the softness of the last B.Makowsky bag.. Now I just have the issue of deciding on a color? What do you think? Or.. if I am too much of a wimp to go for color.. I can always fall back on the classic black.

I am probably the worst person to make decisions when it comes to choosing colors.

Merry Christmas- Belated

I hope you guys all had a wonderful christmas and got some lovely gifts! Mine was great, spent time with family, ate way too much, and enjoyed the first white christmas in so long! It's seriously insane, the snow level goes past my knees now, I think its around 45cm, I cant even remember the last time we had this much snow and it stuck around for so long! But it definitely made it feel more like christmas! I took some pictures but need to figure out to load them onto the computer from my new camera ;););)
So how was your guys' christmas? receive anything special?

Winter Wonderland

Quick little update before I rush off to sleep!
Almost a week later and amazingly, still snow! We've been having record insane coldness plus soo much snow! It's incredibly unusual, when we get snow it usual disappears within a few days, but we've had a week straight and yet another to come! As awkward as it has made things, I still love it, with about 15cm or more, it's blanketed just about everything and looks so pretty! So far my holidays have not been exactly "relaxing," I've been working a lot which kind of squashes the whole idea of a winter break, but still all is not bad, and christmas is only a few days away!

Even though I am enjoying the winter.. I cant help but still want these plus a nice relaxing pedi =)..

It has been so cold these past few days, my mild west coast self is not quite prepared! Honestly, -20c with windchill? East Coast why do we have your weather? It is freezing and Im pretty sure I completely scared my managers when I showed up to work in sweat pants, not to worry normal clothing was underneath, but waiting for public transit in that weather, sweats were required! It's not all bad though, I enjoyed the snow, and slipping around on ice, snow just makes everything pretty! I feel like its somewhat of an adevnture too =) More snow and freezing temperatures to come though, so we'll see how Im feeling after a week in this.. in the meantime.. I could use this:

Alexander Wang knit dress, paired with my huge fluffy scarf, super thick tights, some type of toque, mittens, a huge parka, and some boots paired with multiple layers of socks =D

Also, mom and I went to pick out some pretty festive Christmas poinsettas, it was an absolute lovely sea of red! They even put some shimmery sparkles on ours =)

Also, now I know why my house is so cold, because my cat likes to absorb all the heat by sleeping directly over the heat vent!

Im officially finished all school and exams and can finally relax and enjoy the holiday season! Although I think my hand may be permanently formed into a pen holding position for a few more days, my god my arms are aching to the elbows!
Anyways on a happier note I went out for a celebration dinner, which included some crispy Yam fries, my latest food obsession!

Also quite jealous of people living in NY right about now, I saw from teenvogue that Alexander Wang is having a sample sale from Dec.11th-13th, tommorow and saturday 10am-7pm at 386 Brodway, 6th floor. It says up to 80% off!! Im so jealous this would have been a perfect christmas present to myself, someone please go buy stuff in my place and then show me your lovely purchases!

Also Loving these photos:

I've had this photo for quite awhile, absolutely love it! Could their legs be any longer? and those over the knee boots are to die for!
(Mostly photo on right, these photos come as a package deal =), but leather skinnies, balmain boots, givenchy jacket= hotnesss)

Color of the Year

So Yellow is officially the "color of the year for 2009" according to Pantone, Im fairly on board, I quite like yellow! What about you guys?

I've recently discovered polyvore, and decided, in my studying procrastination to play around and create a little collage of yellows =)

100% Legal

So I turned 19 today, which means Im officially legal, no more limits! I made sure I bought myself some lottery tickets and of course a nice fruity alchoholic cocktail =) Next on my list, a casino + clubbing. The funny thing was, no one even asked to see my ID, I was so prepared, I almost felt like asking, dont you want to know that Im actually of age!? Anyways all in all it was a great b-day, andd yeahh I might have bought myself a few things, including and overpriced silk/cotton/cashmere cardigan.. how could I not? I can't refuse such soft items on the best of times. Honestly if someone buys me something, and it's soft, its insta-love!
Sadly today was my day of fun, and tommorow its study study study, one week to go till freedom!

Almost Done

This week I was definitely put to the test with how much homework I could complete with the littlest amount of sleep in quite some time. But thankfully classes are finally over! One week from today I will be complete with exams and free to enjoy holiday spirit! Yayy! It will be nice to finally feel guilt free while reading my magazines , and get some christmas shopping done. Im bad I know, but I can never get my christmas shopping over with early, it's just..not possible.

During one of my procrastination of homework moments, I was looking at the urban outfitters website for gift ideas, and they have some really cute and entertaining items, a couple of my favorites:
Gigantic ipod speakers!

Because Im sure we all have such dirty laptops, a little vacuum to clean up all that mess! They also have a mini fridge that will fit a pop and a mini fan, I find this just so randomly cute.
