Brighter than the Sun

I know I said I'm done with tats, and I certainly don't need to become a nautical-themed shrine to the ocean, but I waaaaaaaaant. this. ink.

Boys Like You

Boys Like You - 360 ft. Gossling

Watch this vid :) It's my new favourite song. Reminds me of boyfriend, just how the guy laughs at the end. Cute. Anyways it's a good tune.
And I have decided to eschew the high-waisted belts of the current fashion, and go for big low-slung belts that make my hips look huge. But whatever #swag.
Grey knit stockings, black button down shirtdress (Jacob), belt stolen from KP's closet, yellow enamel cuff (also KP's), wooden earrings (found them somewhere in the Byward Market many years ago)

Exams are killing me, I've got 1 down, 2 to go, then BOYFRIEND. I can't wait, I know I've mangled this blog by talking non-stop about how much I miss him, but I figure it's better than rambling on and on about it in person to all my biddies and fam, although I'm sure I do that too. Anyways. FOUR. DAYS. I'm dyinggggg :) Excited.

Pretty Little Liar

Why yes, yes I do have deoderant stains all over my shirt. On the days I actually bother to shower and use deoderant .. this is how I am repayed. I hope everyone who is near me appreciates the efforts I go to so that they enjoy my sweet, sweet scent.
 Can't decide on shoessss...
Okay, I lied ... that wasn't all I bought. Well actually no .. KP bought me these b/c we had to return one pair of my birthday tights because they were made for anorexic midgets/children.. So I got THESEEEEEE omg aren't they awesome.

Enough is enough

Okay this is seriously the last of my shopping until the new year. Even though I spent practically pennies .. it's bad, naughty, naughty. I just donated a bag of clothes mere HOURS ago! Literally last night, in an attempt to de-clutter my closet (and make room to hang pictures, an inspiration board, and a mirror) I got rid of clothing, shoes, bags, and accessories. Then this morning I remembered Value Village was having a 50% off sale and though, well I'll juuuuuust go to look for some hilair christmas sweaters for M and I to wear together .. and to be honest the selection was quite disappointing and I didn't buy any, but I bought a pair of nice gap jeans, a black lace t-shirt (whatchu think? wear with a beige bra or be daring and wear with a bright cobalt blue bra .. or I'm too damn old and should just wear it with a tank underneath and stop trying to be a lamb ... because I'm a mutton .. or whatever). Also bought a pink dress in what I like to call "ethnic" print aka something a hippie would luuurve, a yellow super soft floral mini dress, and a blue tye-dye dress made from bamboo.

 And now I'm done for the year, noooo mooore buying myself things. (Although for all those sweet purchases I only spent $20 ... fuckyes).

AND I accidentally bought a skirt over the weekend with KP but I take no responsibility for it at all as she was the one who forced me into Winners and practically locked me in a change room with a bunch of clothes.
I can't say to no embroidered/crocheted/shimmery things .. and this skirt is all 3!

 Pink, sparkles, no cleavage (like me ... miraculously shed 2 cup sizes ... pfft)
 Sweaters and short :) Best, and v. Canadian
I'm dying over this pic, the dress is to DIE for, the hair piece kills it. It's just amazing. Ah-MAY-ZINGG.

Go pick out a white dress

So I here's the finished product, I suppose I could have done the neck a little bit nicer, I just chopped off the ruffles and hemmed it, but I'm thinking I may alter the neckline a bit, it looks pretty uneven without the ruffles.
Wearing it with my Calvin Klein knit tights (bday pressie from Mummy), and her greyish shooties, and her studded black belt, and my Guess hobo bag.

It's a love story baby just say yes

Remember this dress? I chopped off the ruffled neck .. finally. I think I like it better now, makes it less Little House on the Prairie. New photos coming soon!

All Weather Leather

 Had such a productive day, literally GTL'd .. awkward, then went Christmas shopping! Accidentally stopped at Value juuuuust to have a peek and then spent the next hour trying on clothes. Got this navy blue bodycon skirt (with a zip down the back) from Forever 21 for $7.
 This luuurvely real leather Guess bag still had the tags on it!!! And Value had priced it at $59.99 but I haggled them down to $7.99 :) WORD .. even the packaging was still on the inside, so nice!
 Thennn stumbled across this vintage Dooney & Bourke all weather leather collection satchel, $7.99 totally had to have it!
And then I found this sweet Mexican poncho thingy. Now don't go all cultural appropriation bullshit on me now just because I'm white. It's a lovely piece of textile and I'm an eco-friendly shopper so I'd rather buy something used than buy something brand new, straight from the sweatshops.
Anyways I love my new poncho thingie, it's so warm and woolen and nice.

Taste the Rainbow

I only buy clothes that I can be upside down in...
Same green cropped sweater, I'm all over it. Gap flare jeans, studded clogs, leather purse, studded black and white enamel bracelet.
Right now I'm drinking hot water, lemon juice, lime juice, cayenne pepper and honey .. supposed to be a cleanse. But it apparently only works if you consume nothing but that for 10 days .. I've had a steak and 2 bowls of soup already. Ooooops.

Hot Chocolate

Well we have been spoiled with the weather lately, up until yesterday I honestly was worrying that we wouldn't have a white Christmas! But yesterday it was legit ice cold, like the kind of cold where it's so windy that your hood keeps blowing down and your eyes are crying because of the wind, and your fingers burn when you finally get inside and start defrosting. My car also took forever to warm up. Ugh winter is coming with a vengeance!
And I'm fasting right now, idk why, it's supposed to be good for you, but it's only been 15 hours and I want a steakkkk.

In Flanders Fields, by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place: and in the sky
The larks still bravely singing fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the dead: Short days ago,
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved: and now we lie
In Flanders fields!
Take up our quarrel with the foe
To you, from failing hands, we throw
The torch: be yours to hold it high
If ye break faith with us who die,
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields
Composed at the battlefront on May 3, 1915
during the second battle of Ypres, Belgium

The Lazy Bitch's French Onion Soup

I'm filling the large boyfriend void in my life with shopping and food ... So sad.
Neon peach colour blocked tank from Forever 21 (VV), jeans, leather belt, brown beaded multi-strand necklace. Blah, blah boring. I desperately need a tie-dye blue poncho with leather trim and wooden toggles. Life would be more complete.
P.s. Look, my hair was a bloody mess and then I greased it up with mane n tail and did a pony tail with braids. Yay for fancy girls.

Best onion soup ever:
1 box of beef or vegetable broth
4 chopped onions
1 can of tomatoes
Salt, olive oil, pepper, brown sugar.

1. Chop up onions, cry a lot, throw in pot with olive oil, sprinkle with a tbsp-ish of brown sugar and some sea salt, throw in whatever herbs you have on hand, caramelize

2. Add tomatoes, mush around for a minute or so

3. Add broth and 3 cups of water

4. Simmer for half an hour

Optional: 4 & 1/2. If you are fancy as fuck and have a hand blender, blend your little heart out... Disclaimer - it is best NOT to do this while the soup is still in the pot on the hot element. Especially when the hand blender is plastic. And if you do decide to do this and the plastic hand blender starts melting to the bottom of the pot, make damn sure you turn it OFF before pulling it out, otherwise it will take you for fucking ever to clean the soup mush off of the ceiling.. and out of the dogs fur.

5. Throw in some croutons, and sprinkle with parmesan cheese to add the 400 calories of fat you'd otherwise be missing.

6. Nom the shit out of it (careful not to burn the roof of your mouth you little piggies .. otherwise an hour later the blistered skin will fall off .. and it's fucking disgusting)

Salmon and black colour blocked Forever 21 tank ($4 VV), gold bracelet with glass charms ($3 VV), ballet-inspired lace and tulle dress ($70 American Eagle). Pretty thingsss.

Man this has been annoying, blogger hasn't been allowing me to upload any photo's because it isn't recognizing iPhoto anymore. LAME. But I figured it out, now it will just take me like 8 years to upload a single pic.
Anyways, grey Smart Set jumper, striped mini with zipper down the back (some store in Cairns), Calvin Klein stockings, vintage leather cowboy boots, Roots satchel.
I'm currently lying in bed dying of a food baby, girl M took me out for lunch this aft at Spin downtown, it was really nice, we had a lovely heirloom tomato, basil, mozarella and onion salad to start, and then I had steak frites for my main, soooo delicious but soooo huge, I ate the whole thing too - don't fuck wit dat.
And 42 days :) <3 <3 <3 <3
I think it's true what they say, that a gentle birth makes for a gentle baby. Very interesting.

Also, everyone who plans to be a parents at any time should watch this video "Child Circumcision: An Elephant in the Hospital" so sad and brings reality to the procedure of genital cutting that is so normalized in our North American society.
