Friday night movie night

It was a double flick movie night tonight, The Blind Side and The Notebook, I hadn't ever seen the Blind Side, good movie. Andd the Notebook can still make me cry. I always used to think my mom was crazy for crying in so many movies, apparently she gave me the crying gene because I could probably cry over some cheesy semi-sad commercial. Its bad, doesnt even matter if I've seen it before, my friend wanted to watch Bridge to Terabithia one time, I had already seen it and I thought I could handle it, definitely not! I was not expecting that movie to be sad, but I couldnt even hold it together the 2nd time around. Kind of embarassing, this is why I refuse to watch even remotely looking sad movies in the theatre.

Anyways enough crying, I went to H&M today and the new Garden Collection was in, and it was so cheap! I got one of the dresses for $15.95! I picked up a few other things while out today too despite the fact I had put myself on a no shopping policy for awhile, oops!

After looking around Stockholm Streetstyle today.. I think this kinda confirms I need to try on a longer skirt.. I havent even ever considered a long skirt since like grade 3 when I had this really hippie-ish looking one that I loved..

Spring Cleaning

So I finally decided to fulfill a goal I made so long ago and do a major overhaul clean on my room/closet. Im starting with my magazines, I dont know if I've ever mentioned that Im a total maga-holic, I just hate to throw any out. But it was getting crazy, taking up like half of my floor space, its seriously like in the hundreds. Bad, I know. My mom even offered me $40 just to throw them out, haha she clearly does not like my magazine/floor look. I came up with a plan to toss some, and just rip out inspiring photos that I want to save, and keep some others actually arranged on a book shelf. Let me tell you, its very tiring, but Im making progress!

I also dont know if I've ever mentioned I am not a fan of earrings. The whole idea of sticking something through my ear, with the fear of some possible chance it could be ripped out is just not something I care to ever experience. Not only that but I always found them uncomfortable, just the feeling of things on my ears bothers me, so I let the piercings I had grow shut many years ago.

A few days ago I saw this ear cuff/ change on earring, whatever you want to call it, and thought it was such a fabulous alternative. This is so much better to me than earrings will ever be. I honestly would love to try something like this out, would it not be so great in something brighter as well? Some turquoise, or maybe even a feathery peacock.

Little Moon

Just from this photo Im already excited to see the rest of Wilfreds new "Little Moon" collection, Wilfred has always been my favorite thing from Aritzia - minus their hike in prices, but still this looks awesome. I need me some summer.

So happy the weekend is here, its funny how a break can go by so fast yet as soon as school gets back in, its like time stands still.

Im pretty sure everyone I know right now is in a little bit of Olympic withdrawal, I miss it a little too. I still wish I could have gone to some events, but for the most part it was too expensive for the events I wanted, (aka hockey up to like $25000 - yeah seriously.) But it was honestly still such a great experience and I will always remember it, the atmosphere and the excitement was really something I cant explain unless you were here to experience it yourself, definitely a once in a lifetime kind of thing. Not to mention last Sundays mens gold hockey game was the most pumped and exciting day that I have ever seen, amazing!

In all the excitement I really didnt take that many photos, but I thought Id share a few of the photos I did capture.
^ Athletes Olympic Village ^Molson Canadian Hockey house, aka major party every night, I didnt go though, tickets were too pricey for me ;)
^Part of the houses and pavillions at night, pretty much any night time photo I took turned out blurry, this was about the best I had
^A few people wanting to get a look at the imprisoned torch/cauldron^Just a few more people

^Random people who waited in a 3+ hour line-up to zipline over the city square packed with people, definitely looked liked fun but I didnt want to wait in line.

The weather was so abnormally warm and gorgeous for a good portion of the time they were on too, which was great. Im kind of loving this really warm winter =)

Right now Im working on my list of must have spring items I want.. so far its pretty long as it usually is.. I'll share it with you when Im done. Whats on your must have list so far this spring?
