Steve Madden

Not that I need new shoes...but at 40 bones I cannot resist. But first, your help s’il vous plaît:

As I discussed here, I'm finding it hard not to like the clog trend, and I've always had a thing for awesome 70-esque heels. Particularly with cute little dresses. Both are 4-5 inches high (making me 6'1'' or 6'2''). I can't decide which I would wear most often...

EDIT: Gonna wait till I'm back from Ontario, because who knows...maybe I'll find something amazing along Ossington Ave :)

Finished my Undergrad!

And lordy, does it feel good! I guess it will be about a week before my final grade for this last class of horror will be up in a week or so. I really hope I finished off with a bang, but based on things were going in those last couple of days, I just do not care.

What will a girl become?

Oh societal you've (somewhat) changed:

True Blood

I have been catching up on the 3rd season (way to go procrastination...) and just came across this:

My crush on Alexander Skarsgard has just started up again.

GPOY: New Hair Edition

So yesterday I went to the wonderful Ebony, and had my hair touched up and cut. I kept toying with the idea of growing out my fringe, but in the end, the need to have something to add definition to my face won out. Each time I go to Eb I think I am as blond as I can get, and then I walk out:

I am quite the fan, I love what she does for my hair. And considering my hair was such an asymmetrical mess when I first went to her, I think she is doing a great job of helping me grow it all back out.

In other news, I have 5 or 6 pages left of my final paper for my final class of my undergraduate degree. ALMOST. THERE.

This is usually what happens outside my window at the crack of dawn. It also happens at night. I find it quite frustrating. Corey does not seem to mind >_<

Hyperbole and a Half

You should probably go check out this blog ^, the chick who does all the wee comics is hilarious. And it is providing me with ample procrastination tools. Does anyone want to write my paper on why LG couples and how their families can help all families deconstruct gender norms/roles/expectations?


It is time for new glasses! I had an eye appointment Wednesday and forgot to take a camera with me (they used to let you take a couple of pairs home with you to help you decide), so all I have been able to do is find what I think are the two pairs that I am currently debating on, online.


This pair of Randy Jackson (oh god he is making glasses) are designed for men, but I quite like how they fit on my face:

Randy Jackson

I do not think this is the actual pair of Takumi glasses I tried on, but the colour is very similar. Less caramel tortoise, more brick. Just think of the ones above, but in this colour:

My lovely mum and I are going back today and I hope that she will help me in my decision. This time, I will take pictures to show them off, and let you know of the decision!

Graphite Art


Graphite smudges and writing-induced hand cramps feel increasingly foreign as computers replace pencils in the classroom and workplace, but artist Dalton Ghetti’s jaw-dropping sculptures prove that pencils are anything but obsolete. The Brazilian-American carpenter has carved his mini graphite pieces for about 25 years, using only a sculpting knife, razor blade, and sewing needle.

Head wraps

After coming across Stylesightings blog entry on head games I decided it had to be done, and after a lovely afternoon with Kiki and almost purchasing a new scarf, I've put it to the test:

photo taken by my awesome roomie, Chloaye

I think I'm a fan:)

Let's discuss:

Plastic Smooth...

Really? That is the name you wanna go with Barbie? I mean...come on! I understand that your brand is completely based around plastic dolls that have unachievable bodies, wardrobes and lifestyles...but naming your makeup "plastic smooth"??

Here's to masking your faces ladies; because covering up your pores to the best of your ability diminishes your flaws, and we can't have those can we?

Also: way to not show any of your ethnic Barbie's for your models here. Because you know, black, Indian, and Asian people don't wear makeup.

A+ Look for Fall Contest!

So I'm doing another one of ModCloth's contests and would love your support!

Essentially the rules are to make a styleboard with your favourite items to make an amazing look for back to school style. We have to use at least one ModCloth item, and from there submit it as part of the contest to be judged beside all the other submissions.

Here are the links to the three styleboards I have going on so far:

Stripes and Flowers

Grandma's Closet

Fall Layers

Family portrait

This is what a family portrait should look like, or at least what I will do for day:


Also, I purchased an old Brownie camera today to add to my growing camera collection:

It is small gifts to myself like this that make my day. I love shopping at Super Chance (James Bay), and suggest you all do so too!
