I think this is a really fun way to do nails and am set on trying to master this look:

As I sit here procrastinating (well I have started, I just take lots of intermittent breaks) working on my grad school applications for Ontario OT schools, I figured I may as well begin my New Years Revolutions. I don not really have many, but it has to begin somewhere....

Along with this blog I have always kept a journal. Probably since junior high, and periodically through my childhood...but we all know what that was like. It is pretty hilarious to read back over the years at my trials and tribulations, especially through the teen years. But anyway, for 2011 my goal is for my journal to look a little more like this:

I figure by mixing in a little bit of artistry, scrap-booking and collage-making, I will fill my need to be creative more often (I hope).

End of another year

Happy New Years everyone, see you in 2011!

Went and saw The Black Swan. Thought it was amazing, slightly disturbing and thoughtful at others. I don't mean to spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen it yet...but I really wish I knew what happened next, you know? Although I do enjoy movies with endings so abrupt as this. In other news, I would certainly do a love scene with either Mila or Natalie.

I'm back...

...with a Caturday!

And updates: On Christmas day (evening) Corey and I got back from Sicamous with his family where we had a nice white Christmas. He took me to Malaqua, where he showed me his families farm house, old elementary school and other old hangouts. We tromped through dry snow and the feeling of it brought back memories of Yellowknife. It was wonderful. I wish I had taken more photos to show off the landscape, however I totally forgot to take out my little point and shoot and couldn't find my old Kodak.

Since being back, I've sort of been working and just visiting with family, and clearly not updating. I'm sure that will change shortly.

Tomorrow I'm off to lunch with the beautiful Kelsey and Teresa, so perhaps I will photo document that excursion.

Till then, enjoy the rest of your holidays!

Look that was forgotten

I don't believe I ever posted this look, but I'm in love with the skirt. We just got some pants that have a similar style to them and are done in the same fabric:

I am wearing the Nina scoop top in navy, with the Laila skirt and polka dot tights.

It has been a while since I have posted, so here is an update:

I am sick. And it fucking sucks. Last weekend I was doing my best to not get sick by taking lots of vitamin c, supplements, oregano oil, etc. Then whammo, as of Wednesday I finally hit the wall of bacterial doom and since have not been able to stop my eyes from watering, my nose from running, or my lungs from coughing. As such, I haven't been able to work my ridiculous hours (probably what made me sick in the first place), and thus haven't made any money. The only plus side is that my goddamn abs are burning and look pretty good.

I am also too scared to try taking any other drugs other than my benylin cough and cold syrup because it warns you that if you do you may overdose. Shit. That is not what I want.

Anyway, hopefully posting will resume soon.

cat and mouse

I wish our house was allowed to have cats, it could solve our mouse problem quite quickly:

We just had our 60/40 event, and although I had said I wouldn't spend over 200 bones, thirty over that hardly seemed that much of a big deal....

Look 1: Celia leggings (so hot, they have leather on the front pannel from just above the knee down) with Francesca sweater in Aubergine (reminds me of a sweater ballerina's would wear to warm up):

Look 2: Lola top is sheer black, Jaqueline winter shorts in camel, and polka dot tights:

Look 3: Joyce Cardigan in black (so comfy and warm), Amy tank in floral, spike head band and again with the Celia leggings (I've been wearing them a lot lately...):

Black Swan

Who wants to come watch it with me? Avy, Kiera?

look of the day

Everything about this look is perfect, the shoes, her toque, the dress with tights and finished with the amazing coat:

tea time!

Next week my friend Bryan and I are having a wee tea party, with all of the new teas we bought from Silk Road after we attended one of their tea workshops. I'm excited to finally be able to use my beautiful tea cups!

stem cell research vs prolifers

Came across this at Ish's blog, and after having had a recent conversation on pro-life vs pro-choice I thought it would be a worthwhile reblog:
"A three-day-old human embryo is a collection of 150 cells called a blastocyst. There are, for the sake of comparison, more than 100,000 cells in the brain of a fly. If our concern is about suffering in this universe, it is rather obvious that we should be more concerned about killing flies than about killing three-day-old human embryos… Many people will argue that the difference between a fly and a three-day-old human embryo is that a three-day-old human embryo is a potential human being. Every cell in your body, given the right manipulations, every cell with a nucleus is now a potential human being. Every time you scratch your nose, you’ve committed a holocaust of potential human beings… Let’s say we grant it that every three-day-old human embryo has a soul worthy of our moral concern. First of all, embryos at this stage can split into identical twins. Is this a case of one soul splitting into two souls? Embryos at this stage can fuse into a chimera. What has happened to the extra human soul in such a case? This is intellectually indefensible, but it’s morally indefensible given that these notions really are prolonging scarcely endurable misery of tens of millions of human beings, and because of the respect we accord religious faith, we can’t have this dialogue in the way that we should. I submit to you that if you think the interests of a three-day-old blastocyst trump the interests of a little girl with spinal cord injuries or a person with full-body burns, your moral intuitions have been obscured by religious metaphysics."

-- Sam Harris, on stem cell research.


Today my 14 year old little kitty (big kitty), aka Smudge (pudge, meowzer, fatty, kitler), was taken to the vet to be put down. We're not entirely sure what exactly happened, but within the last month he deteriorated so quickly that we had no other option than to put him out of his misery.

So here we go, a Caturday in honor of our beautiful Smudge:

Love this layered look with all the different lengths. We just got a new silk full length skirt that I am eager to try on...

Only two photos today, pretty simple outfit:

I am wearing, the Amy tank in dark purple with flowers, Fabian chinos, and Celine blazer.
