Or should I say possible realities? This year is going to be an interesting one, and I hope we live it to the fullest.

Hey look, it's me in my spring/summer work wear. Nah, I'll try for a little more colour but I do love this look.

I so desperately want a lovely pair of trousers that make my long legs look this wonderful:

And of course, Zara has will I next be in Vancouver?


What a cute little guy, wherever he is, he sure looks cold. Good thing he is so fluffy!

Nail Tutorial

Remember back when I posted about The Cherry Blossom Girl's fancy nails and how I wish I too could accomplish the look? Well now I can, and so can you:

Blush, pastels and other soft colours. They are so pretty, but I do not think I could pull them off. They remind me of cotton candy:)

no really

I need spring sun and flowers. The other day we took our teen group to Beacon Hill park to feed the ducks, and the reactions from both ducks and seagulls was possibly the funniest thing I have seen all week. It made me burst out with laughter, truly a wonderful feeling.

I want it to be With lots of sun, and warmer days. Preferably with cherry blossoms and longer hair.

Alberta Ferretti Spring 2011

I wish my hair could do the second shorter style without being too puffy. I love having thick hair, but it does limit what can be accomplished or how short my hair can go. I also love the cold blond hair colour, however I don't think I'm quite pale enough to pull it off. My sister on the other hand, naturally has this colour....bother.

style crush

I sort of have a style crush. She and some of her ensembles will be making an appearance in my new journal/scrap book for 2011.

Some days I wish I were blond again...then I remember just how much of a pain it was to touch up the roots/how expensive it was. I guess we shall see what the summer holds in store.

PS: I also wish there were more photos of me sans red face from laughter/drink from this wonderful film noir themed grad night.


I find this image so beautiful and eerie, the perfect combination.

raw stones

Club Monaco just got a beautiful necklace in called the Drusi Pendant; it is made of crystal points jammed together and is only plated in silver around the edges of the pendant. I wish it did this all along the back because then the back wouldn't ruin your tops.

Raw stone necklaces have definitely become super popular lately and have made me go out on the hunt to see if I can find any reasonably priced items that I like. So far Urban Outfitters has been a successful bet, as well as, so long as you know how to search for them.

Here are couple of beautiful pieces that have caught my eye and probably my wallet:

Beautiful places to live

I know that we live in the most beautiful part of the world, but sometimes I see photos like this and I remember that there are many most beautiful parts of the world.

I have been having a similar conversation to this lately with other friends who have spent much of their life in British Columbia but have also had the opportunity to travel to other parts of the world. It is so true, although we brag about how wonderful BC is (and it is lovely), we tend to forget that they are just as many other beautiful places across Canada and the world.

Club Monaco Spring 2011

While on the topic of Lookbook's (see post before this), I feel like I should share some of the upcoming Club Monaco Spring looks, because man...they are so simple, flirty and elegant. Here are a few of my favourite looks:

Yes, these are wonderful.


It has been a hectic week what with grad school applications that almost did not make it in on time. Thankfully they have, and now I'm looking forward to a hopefully not too stressful Friday (I work both jobs today, back to back) and weekend. This weekend my goal is to relax and have a little me time, but having a luxurious bath and making myself feel wonderful. One of the ways to do so might be something like this:


I am ready for a few drinks and good times with friends.
