Wanting: Flowy Skirts

Hello all, I hope you had a good Christmas and have some exciting New Years Eve plans! My Christmas was okay, I woke up sick Christmas morning though, and I've had a cold ever since and can't seem to get rid of it. I feel like Im always saying Im sick, probably because I do seem to get sick every couple of months, its ridiculous! I have no immune system. It has been cold but its not like im running outside in shorts, trust me Im a bundled/layered person!

I guess its not practical that Im loving the sheer/flowy skirts right now, but lately I've been really drawn to them.

free people^

Song of style blogger, I love the way she wears this!


Free People, I know this skirt or dress isnt long and flowy.. but I just really liked it with the sweater, its kinda short and flowy-ish?

Normally I dont pay too much attention to Free People, but today I was looking around their site and liked a lot of what I saw, I guess what kept me away for so long is the prices.

I also bought a new ring, im thinking of it as a belated bday present for myself, I will definitely have to take pics within the next couple of days, man I cant believe 2010 is almost over..

Look-a-like Alert!

Looks like our friends at the Gap were inspired by our friends of Proenza Schouler, pretty close wouldnt you say? Except Im liking the Gap price a lot more =)
1. The Gap, CA$198
2. Proenza Schouler, $1595

a little bit of anything

School is finally done! I can breathe in fresh freedom to read magazines guilt free and sleep in! Or anything else that doesnt involve some kind of gross formula or graph =) It will definitely be nice to have a couple of weeks off even though I will most likely be working for a good chunk of the time. But still, its very nice not to have to feel guilty about procrastinating assisnments. Only thing now is I cant believe how close Christmas is, I feel like I've spent so much time thinking about other things I really haven't gotten a chance to get into the full spirit.

I saw these photos the other day on studded hearts and thought this is definitely the spirit I want for my break, random, fun, maybe a crazy pillow fight with feathers?

Pyrrha Jewelry!

I wanted to share this really awesome jewelry line with you if you've never heard of it. I find it really different than a lot of stuff out there right now and Im always drawn to unique lines of jewelry. This is really starting to become my obsession, for so long it was just rings and now its definitely expanded! Jewelers anonymous please help me before Im broke!

Anyways its a handmade line that really stands apart with their unique wax seal design, they have other stuff too but the seals are definitely my favorite, and there is soo many meanings and symbols it would be so hard to decide. Im possibly thinking early Christmas present to self, but I also said that about so many different things already!
Oh and I saw on their website that they use recycled silver and gold which I always think is a really awesome concept, being green and getting to recycle and re-love some old silver thats possibly been around for a very long time.
Plus wouldnt these be great gifts!?

Heres a couple of my faves:



^Something different for a special someone.
^Reads "Mon Ami," for your BFF!
^Carpe Diem, latin for "seize the day"
A little inspirational, symbol for optimism, reads "still have hope"

Check out their website for soo many others!

Hey guys, as you may have noticed I've been a little MIA lately, I didnt plan to be but you know how school and tests and everything get piled on. I really dont know how time has been going by so quickly! Its already December and Im wishing for my classes to finally be done, but then I know its going to be Christmas before you know it. I need a slow motion moment or something to get all caught up! This time of year always feels like crunch time. My mom and I finished all the Christmas decorations this weekend, now I just need to start on the shopping!

So anyways regular posting is back on the agenda, I've been having stuff I wanted to post but just never got the chance too! How are you guys doing with everything? Started any shopping yet?

The December Issue

The December magazine issues are always one of my favorite of the year, Im not sure exactly why but I guess just the whole holiday season is exciting all the glitter and glitz, and all the cute party dresses or yummy appies. One of the main things I like too is its really finally feeling like winter, so all the cozy knits and chunky scarves just look so appealing. So this year I googled the covers of the December issues since I couldnt quite wait until they came out.. and unfortunately this is what I found:


Can someone please inform Elle that its December and not July. Whats with the cover? I obviously cant speak for everyone but I dont like this at all for December, maybe for June or July, but for right now it would turn me off buying it.

Now I know this isnt a magazine cover but these ads are rocking the winter feel, the cozyness even though its snowing, hot chocolate, cute lab dogs, congrats Michael Kors, you are totally making me want everything and just kicked Elles ass!


I cant wait for snow!!

And dont forget about the giveaway!!!

Hello everyone, I hope you had an awesomely spooky Halloween even though it was on a Sunday night! Hopefully you got some treats, sadly my mom has gotten me seriously hooked on english toffee, just the kind of addiction I need. I really didnt do much, I never get very into Halloween, if I do I've got a pair of cat ears on standby to be an easy costume. Anyways now that Halloween is officially over and done with we can just kick all those on-sale candies to the corner because I know the stores are going to be going full out Christmas, I was already listening to Christmas carols in the mall on Friday! I lovee the Christmas season but honestly it seems like they are trying to push it too far. I actually saw 2 rows of Christmas items at Costco in August! Yeah.. August!?

Anyways since everywhere is ahead on the holidays I guess its really awesome that has given me an opportunity to host another giveaway! One lucky winner will get a fabulous early Christmas present, the House of Harlow 1960 Tribal Print Ring, awesome right?

If you haven't heard about Designer Apparel its kind of a made easy online shopping centre. I dont know about you but I could seriously care less about shopping online if its difficult or hard to find things. Plus my least favorite thing is not knowing if somewhere else has the same thing for cheaper. Thats why I think the price comparison, free shipping and sale notifications are seriously awesome tools to have! Be sure to check out our awesome hosts because they do have pretty much everything you can think of; BCBG dresses, I actually just got some really cozy knit BCBG dresses, yay! (plus they always have so many perfect holiday type dresses) Also an awesome selection of Michael Kors Handbags, and Burberry Coats!

Now the rules! Be sure to follow because otherwise I can't include your entry. Basically just leave me a comment, you can say anything, tell me something new or just say hi, maybe something you would like to see from my blog.. But most importantly leave your NAME and EMAIL so I can contact you if you win. Also this contest is only open to readers in the US and Canada!
Goodluck everyone!

Your last chance to enter the contest will be Monday November 15th at 11:59pm where I will randomly select one winner!

Follow me on bloglovin' or blogger for hopefully some more awesome contests!

October 22

So last weekend, I felt all excited because my cold was finally easing up, then just as I think I've gotten rid of it, Bammm full on sick again and worse than the first time around, seriously not fun. I was home for like 3 days not doing anything, not talking, pretty much just sleeping. So tonight even though my cough was still lingering around to choke me I went out for dinner (halls and pepsi, do not taste good together in case you were wondering) followed by a trip to my favorite little town for hot chocolate at my favorite bookstore/cafe.

Our weather has been soo unusually warm lately and they keep blabbing about how this is supposed to be our "coldest winter in 55 years," but honestly I cant remember the last near end October where I could go around with no jacket and not be freezing. But Im getting sick of it, I want my cool weather, I want to wear all my cozy sweaters, toques and boots!
And I loveee this sweater that Tao Okamoto is wearing, perfect colour!

Joe Fresh

Hello everyone I know its been awhile since I've posted but it honestly feels like just a few days ago, time has honestly been going sooo fast its hard to believe. My school week is only 4 days, and it seems to blow by, and before I can even enjoy the weekened its already Monday again! This semester is going to be over before I know it.

I hope you all had a great Holiday weekend and had good Thanksgiving dinners, I know mine was good, although turkey-less ;) I also of course got sick, but at least it was only minor, it seems like there is a really bad cold season going around right now.

So of course I had to do a little shopping on the weekend, one of my favorite spots has actually become the Joe Fresh clothing in Superstore. For those of you who have never heard of Superstore, its pretty much a giant ugly, busy grocery store that I've never liked. They always used to sell clothing, but over the past couple of years they've really stepped it up and come out with this new collection called Joe Fresh, which sells pretty reasonably priced items. So I thought I would share their latest commercial with you guys!

If I had $30 to spend on lipgloss, I would most definitely buy this perfect berry shade of gloss by NARS, love it!


made by me on polyvore, I've been having a lot of fun with polyvore lately, photos from Simply Susie
Alsoo, check out this song by Bedouin Soundclash! Their new album just came out this week and Im loving it!

Tuesday, September 28, 2010


Soo its only been a few weeks into school and I already feel really behind, I dont even know how that is, I just feel like I've been procrastinating everything lately, even though I haven't. Its weird. I also feel so insanely drained of energy and I blame it on this annoying weather we've been having, its been really warm yet wet, I hate muggyness, my hair also dislikes it. Has anyone ever seen that episode of Friends where they go to the bahamas or something and Monicas hair goes insane, I feel like Im a toned down version of that.

I haven't even gotten around to watching hardly any of the spring 2011 shows! Although I did catch Burberry and I must say Im in love! I didnt think it would be possible to top fall and the amazing jackets, but I thought the show was amazing, especially the jackets! Real posts coming soon, I promise!

Oh yeah and check out this tat I saw while cruising tattoologist, thats definitely some dedication? I dont know if thats the right word, what do you guys think?


Friday, September 17, 2010


So happy the weekend is here! Even though its supposed to rain Im really hoping the temperature gets cooler soon, I've been dying to wear some of my fall stuff and today was so freakin warm! Its always opposite when you want warm you get cold, when you want cold you get warm!

Anyways, as some of you may know Im a complete ring addict, they are easily my favorite accessory. So I have to share this picture of Abbey Lee's rings, I would loveee to know where she got that turqoise ring!

*ring ring* h&m is on the phone

As Im sure most of you have heard by now, H&M's latest collaboration is with Lanvin, which Im pretty sure everyone is insanely excited about, no!? The only thing thats keeping me from being too excited is the fact that there will probably insane line-ups, and Im pretty much not a fan of line-ups, meaning if its longer than 20 minutes, nothing is probably worth the wait for me. But I guess it kinda depends on the previews, I cant wait to see them, maybe they'll be so awesome I'll actually break my line-up rule! Collection is out November 20th for Canada/US and the 23rd for the rest of the world!

I apologize for being a terrible blogger lately, I've kinda been all over the place, getting ready for school, failing at keeping my promise of not buying anything, and other non fun stuff possibly involving a little something called work.

I thought Id show you a couple of my latest purchases starting out with my newest addition to my rings =)

Another ring by Shablool

Now I have to goto sleep because I have school tommorow! =( How did September come so fast?

Birds, Birds, Birds

So I've banned myself from stores for a couple of days to gather my senses. The fall stuff is just too much for me, the boots, the jackets, the colors, the chunky knits, I want it all! I would say I've tryed to avoid online stores as well, but that would be a lie because it didnt last even a half day.

During that half day I ended up looking on the
Tattoologist, which became slightly addicting, its making me seriously want a tattoo, but for now I think im just too undecided when it comes to lifelong decisions like that. Im thinking someone needs to come up with a better temporary tattoo that lasts about a month or two, that would be really cool. Im thinking I would get a bird of some kind or a feather or something else whimsically.

Some of my faves, especially that last one!

I Need these!

Chunky knits, and lots of them!!


Sorry I've been so MIA, its just been insanely hot so I've been really lazy. I also went to Seattle for a couple of nights and got some pretty sweet deals that could never be had in Canada. And Im pretty sure Im actually addicted to Tims Ice Caps.

Tuesday, August 3, 2010


Since getting back into the internet groove I've been really looking into all things fall. I can't help it, this seasons fall stuff has me very excited! I decided to play around with polyvore a little more so I could make some collages.. Im still very much a work in progress, Im very slow at adapting to any new programs.

Anyhow I decided to make a little collage with one of my fave photos from an editorial I showed awhile back and stick it with some of the boots Im most excited about this season. I actually picked up the dark brown Tommy Hilfiger booties in navy blue last year at Ross for only 15.99, so excited to get wearing them this fall!

Kinda sucks getting back into reality, being blissed out in the heat floating on a lake or being surrounded by amazing scenery kinda kicks the ass of work and the reality of being back in the city. Its also somewhat harder adjusting to internet than I always think it will be, weird because I usually spend a lot of time consumed, but once you break free of not having any its kinda nice for awhile.

Since getting back to the internet I've been catching up on all my usual blogs and sites, checking out whats new. And even though Im enjoying the warm summer weather I cant help but be more excited than usual about whats in store this Fall. Is it just me or does this falls items seem even more appealing than usual?

Im especially loving Topshops collection!

So what are you guys most excited about for fall?

I kinda forgot to mention that Im on a vacation, I've been in beautifulll Banff the past few days, doing all things outdoorsy and seeing all sorts of amazing sights and wildlife, many piks to share.

Evil Twin

Summer has finally arrived..about time.. although I dont want to jynx it since it could go back to total crap in no time. Someone told me that Canadians talk about weather more than any other country, I dont know where their source was but I can very much believe it because we talk about weather a lot.. I know I do, Im always posting about it and complaing and such. But I refuse to complain about this scorching weather even though I feel gross after just coming out of the shower! Id much rather this than 12c rain in July. Also.. for a random note my bangs are totally pissing me off, you know that stage where you need a trim again and they just annoyingly dont sit right and feel all uncomfortable, I need a trim asap!

Also check out this lookbook from Evil Twin
